Immured is Cyclocosmia’s second original release and was released in January 2017 as a digital-only EP. It features vocals (both clean and growled) from New Zealand/Greek vocalist Aliki Katriou, and follows the demise of one such priestess, from her sadness, her rage at the prosecutor, her descent into insanity and her vows for supernatural revenge. Musically, Immured builds on the progressive elements present in Deadwood, with a 17-minute single-track structure in four movements, utilising unusual scales and time signatures, whilst keeping to Cyclocosmia’s core sound of lush symphonics, crushing metal power and an atmosphere of melancholy and darkness.
Immured is also available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital download and streaming sites.
The band’s 2016 debut album, Deadwood covers themes of mental illness, decay and loss of control. The “Deadwood” in the title represents those parts of ourselves that no longer belong to us, that no longer work as they should, which can slowly poison and cripple the mind if not cut out. The majority of the album’s songs explore people in conflict with their own minds, be it through depression (“Faceless”), guilt (“Season of Regret”), schizophrenia (“Shackled”) or dementia (“Wither”).
Physical CDs of Deadwood are only available from our Bandcamp page. The album is also available digitally on iTunes, Amazon and other digital download and streaming sites.
