Winnipeg, Manitoba-based progressive death metal/technical death metal outfit Inverted Serenity are proud to announce their upcoming third full-length, As Spectres Wither. We’re excited to be partnering up with the band to premiere their new single, “We Who Wander”. Active since 2009, Inverted Serenity has carefully cultivated a memorable and difficult to pigeonhole death metal style all their own across two well-received albums released to date. Death metal? Progressive metal? Tech-death? Inverted Serenity could be categorized as any one of those genres, but not placed in a specific camp. Now in 2017, their collective experience and desire to evolve with each release have birthed their finest and most eclectic musical offering yet on As Spectres Wither – out October 6th. If you like bands like Beyond Creation, Soreption, Death, and/or Decapitated, Inverted Serenity may be right up your alley.
Inverted Serenity guitarist/vocals Marc had this to say about the lyrics for “We Who Wander”:
“What provoked the lyrics for “We Who Wander” was the frustration I felt after someone told me I would “grow up and play country some day”. Of course, their condescension ticked me off, but as I reflected on that statement more and more it was this person’s lack of passion and understanding for art that bothered me more. There isn’t much that is more subjective than art. Every art form is as valid as the next. You can’t tell someone what can and can’t inspire them, especially if you aren’t inspired by anything yourself. If it’s unorthodox to play death metal, so be it. There’s nothing wrong with defying convention from time to time. But if “growing up” means suppressing passions and abandoning any creative thought that crosses my mind, I’d much rather wander in immaturity than conform to whatever bland existence is deemed more admirable.”
