SONG OF ANHUBIS - Announces Sophomore Full-Length, Presents First Single And Video

Basque (Spain) based female fronted gothic metallers Song Of Anhubis have released the official music video for the new single "Teratos". The song is taken from their upcoming sophomore full-length entitled Reversed Reflection, which will be released on 23rd October via Rockshots Records.

The band creates a passionate, introspective, intense, and diverse gothic metal that was first introduced to the world on their 2016 debut full length Revenge As Redemption. Not quite following in the exact musical footsteps of their precursive album, their second record takes a 180-degree turn as it experiments with electronic elements and sounds more akin to rock and metal along with their staple gothic influences.

Reversed Reflection is a journey between two opposing worlds, light and darkness, the instinctive, and the rational. Blunt guitars and arpeggios are combined with electronic elements, very melodic passages even melancholic in some cases, with the strength of double bass drumming and simpler fragments with the addition of some extra ingredients that will surprise listeners. All of the emotion on the record is felt through the diverse vocal range of frontwoman Rei Reych.

Reych adds: "I have always been passionate about music and singing since I was very young, so music has been present in my life all the time, both in good times and bad. That's why I always wanted to create my own soundtrack for my feelings and experiences, to be able to express everything that is sometimes difficult to define with words alone. When I met Paul (the guitarist of Song Of Anhubis) collaborating with my voice in a concert of the band in which he played, and after having already been the vocalist of two bands, he offered me to start a project together. We had the same musical interests, a very similar taste and we connected great from the beginning, so when he showed me the riffs he had composed, I accepted immediately, we started this adventure called Song Of Anhubis."

In celebration of announcing the release of Reversed Reflection, the band is sharing with fans the music video for the first single "Teratos". The track is melodic featuring double drums, edgy guitars, and incredibly high operatic vocals. You can watch the video in the player below.

Vocalist Rei Reych explains about the single: ""Teratos" is a simple yet complex song that we composed in order to bring out the wildest and most heartbreaking part of us. "Teratos" came at a time in my life when I needed to let off steam about certain personal issues, so I turned to it completely. The constant self-demanding and non-conformist attitude led me to rehearse every day in whatever little free time I could find to increase my vocal range and explore new voice techniques. This track is actually a small internal conversation about emotional awakening, that inherent force that at one point comes out like a beast that had been locked up. Of course, it is based on my own experiences and it is a track in which I gave extreme importance. Let's say that what I wanted at that moment more than anything else in the world was to express myself to the fullest with my voice and this track is one of those." Link
