Brazilian metal band CHAOSFEAR released the challenging new single “Until The Last Breath”, a song taken from the upcoming conceptual and emotional EP “Aeternum”, scheduled for release in November 2nd, All Souls’ Day.
Recorded at Tori Studios, in Sao Paulo, “Aeternum” was produced, mixed and mastered by the band’s bassist and producer, Marco Nunes, co-produced by the four musicians and with cover art by Jean Santiago (Santart).
All songs on “Aeternum” sound totally out of the box since the band’s return to activities in 2018, clearly showing an even more significant evolution than was heard in the latest and acclaimed album, “Be The Light In Dark Days” (2020).
Fernando Boccomino (vocals/guitars), Eduardo Boccomino (guitars), Marco Nunes (bass/producer) and Fabio Moyses (drums) bet on an even denser, melancholic and symphonic sound, bringing more technical layers, somber and cadence to their compositions compositions in order to create a new and prolific identity. Bringing a conceptual lyrical content basead on the grief, pain and anguish that everyone wen through over the last year, specially the Boccomino brothers who lost very close and dead ones, they incorporated typical instruments that sharpen even more all these feelings, such as acoustic guitars, keyboards and cellos.
“We are a band that is not afraid of taking risks! Our art is fed through new challenges and this new work is another new beginning for the band. Amidst the writing process, our mother died. We even thought about taking a break from recording, but we thought that the best solution would be to continue working and dedicate all the lyrical content of the EP to her. The lyrics of the first single “Until The Last Breath” are a letter I wrote to my mother shortly after her passing. It’s practically a portrait of how I feel about everything that happened, a mixture of emotions, such as longing, pain, anguish, fear, regrets and a depth of sanity in the midst of this hurricane”, commented Fernando Boccomino.
“Never has a Chaosfear release portrayed a determined period of time so well, with losses and mourning, but also one of perseverance and hope”, commented Marco Nunes. “Musically, we took the arrangements to a new level, adding parts with piano, guitar, cello, which had already appeared more modestly on our previous album. Baker did it on Queen’s “A Night At The Opera” and Terry Brown on “Parallels” by Fates Warning”, bringing many layers and things happening so the listener can discover details with each new audition in a kind of sound journey” , concluded Marco Nunes.
