Sounds | Alase - Clear Sky is Not a Curse
Niets nieuws onder de zon met deze derde track uit het nieuwe album: heel sfeervolle metal met een lichte doom-inslag en een immense dynamiek dankzij het schitterende drumwerk. Het is net hun drummer die ervoor zorgt dat ik - net als bij Katatonia - niet in slaap sukkel.
A Matter Of Time verschijnt op 14 april 2023 via Inverse Records.

Guitarist Janne Lunnas comments:
"We chose Clear Sky Is Not a Curse as the first single taken from the album as the song is pretty straight-forward but still progressive. This song was born as our other guitarist Mikko sent me the intro's clean guitar tracks and I started to build other elements on top of them. The song is filled with hooks and it represents many musical elements of the album. Once again our lyricist Ninni Swan managed to capture fragile emotions that many people can relate to. Vocalist Juha Tretjakov sang almost every song on this album and he was a perfect fit as the vocalist for Clear Sky Is Not a Curse as well. If I would need to compare the song to other bands, I think this song is pretty much in the same ballpark style-wise with Katatonia and VOLA as they combine beautiful elements to crushing heavy drumming and riffs in similar way. Aarni Visuals filmed a music video to be accompanied with this song and I think they nailed it great how the atmosphere matches with the song."
Alase is an atmospheric metal band from Finland. Their music is a melting pot of various genres, but the main focus is on the melody and atmosphere. There are a lot of influences outside metal music as well. Lately Alase has added more and more elements from post-metal/-rock and progressive metal. Musically, Alase has similarities with bands like Katatonia, A Perfect Circle, The Ocean, Textures and Pain Of Salvation, just to name a few. Alase's speciality is that they work with various vocalists instead of one. facebook
