After the 2020 debut “Theia” and the cool rearrangement of the Christmas song “Carol of the Bells”, Italian metal act KALAHARI comes back with a new gem of his artistic evolution. The new track is called The Ivory Tower.
Compared to the debut album, the rhythm section has kept the groove element, however, inserting it into a more complex structure. The presence of electronic carpets, combined with the deep and lacerated voice of Nicola Pellacani, leads KALAHARI towards more modern territories, almost to the point of bothering bands like Mnemic.
The singer Nicola Pellacani stated about the song: “The Ivory Tower” is a great achievement for us, both technically and for the self-awareness that writing this song gave us. We wanted to release it as a single to give the song and its message the most attention possible. What this song deals with is very connected to the meaning that our name has for us. It talks about the delusion of grandeur that we are thrown into when we are born in a developed country and the impossibility to reach its expectations. Life is a walk in the desert.
No matter how lucky we are born, our “superior” mind makes things complicated. We always want more, we reach towards our ivory tower, but can we ever grasp its beauty and find peace? Listen to the song and find out what the answer is!”
The Ivory Tower has been recorded at The Grid Studio, mixed by Jonathan Mazzeo, and mastered by Christian Donaldson. Artwork by Adriano Clemense.
