Finnish neoclassical symphonic melodic death metal band Clamoris is set to release their debut album Opus Limbonica on October 28th 2022 via Inverse Records. The third and final single “The Bite of the Cosmic Snake” is released today.
Composer & lyricist Sami Selkäinaho comments: “The third and final single of Opus Limbonica, “The Bite of the Cosmic Snake”, is the primary single of the album.
“It’s got a tight structure and a catchy chorus. It’s a somewhat “rocky” song with tight solos and is likely the most accessible song of the album. It focuses by and large to heavy and catchy riffs over melody, and has a very dark atmosphere to it. The neoclassical element of our approach still pops up here and there, especially in the keyboard solo.“
Originally planned as a two-man studio project formed by keyboardist/composer Sami Selkäinaho and vocalist/bassist Niko Peräkorpi, but feeling that due to the demanding nature of the songs a full band effort would be highly beneficial. They introduced drummer Tom Israels and guitarists Joonas Kinnari & Samuli Kaakinen to the music who, upon hearing the material, agreed to join the band.
After working out the songs for the album, rehearsing them for a while and demoing one of them on the latter half of 2018 the band felt they were ready to start working on recording the debut album, named “Opus Limbonica”, which was finalized and ready for release in 2022.
