HAIL SPIRIT NOIR - New Album Available For Streaming In Full A Day Before Its Official Release

Tomorrow (19th June) the Greek progressive/psychedelic/dark metal band Hail Spirit Noir will release their new studio album titled Eden In Reverse. The album will be released by Agonia Records and today is available for streaming in full in the player below.

The band had this to say on the new album: "This is the album we've spent the most time on. We started off doing some experiments without any idea where they could lead to. After the first 3-4 tracks, we realized we were onto something new for the band. We were no longer in the 60s-70s zone but more in the 70s-80s. The songs sounded retro-futuristic and surreal but they were also more prog, psychedelic and challenging than ever. In the lyrics, we re-wrote the story of Eden from a surreal, Richard Dawkins-esque, Darwinian point of view. The result was Eden In Reverse."

The group was established late 2010 as a trio and issued their debut album Pneuma two years later. Its warm reception strengthened the band's experimental approach and enhanced its quirky take on music, all of which inevitably led to the release of Oi Magoi in 2014; a psychedelic prog-black metal opus of trippy melodies and satyric aura. Followed by Mayhem In Blue in 2016, the band's signature sound was solidified, and at the same time expanded into more aggressive territories, without abandoning the group's trademark psychedelic-infused melodies. Since 2018, the trio has been joined full-time by its live members, changing the band into a sextet. The new album Eden In Reverse was completed late 2019. It is regarded by Hail Spirit Noir as the next step in their ongoing evolution, this time with an 80s twist. Link
