California-based djent/ progressive metal outfit LIFEFORMS will release its new album, “Multidimensional”, via Lifeforce Records on the following dates:
* Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Digitally worldwide: May 10
* Rest Of Europe: May 13
* North America: May 14
“Illusions” introduced the Sacramento quintet to the scene of djent, prog and claiming deathcore. With their second EP “Synthetic”, LIFEFORMS enlarged the experimental side of their creativity and established the basis for their very own interpretation of “extreme crossover.” But have you been prepared for an album such as “Multidimensional”? No, and the title of band’s debut for Lifeforce Records wasn’t chosen by accident! There is so much to discover on the album.
First and foremost, you will be impressed by the heavy approach of LIFEFORMS — no matter if you are looking on the coltish polyrhythm, the humming bass drops, the boisterous breakdowns or the overall atmosphere. But the songs of “Multidimensional” are not heavy for the sake of it, and there is so much more to them. A catenating songwriting and idiosyncratic catchiness is important to the Californians to keep the songs reproducible, conclusive and interesting. “Multidimensional” even proves that music in between djent, prog and claiming deathcore can be catchy on a superior level. Don’t be surprised to discover quotes of easy listening, too. LIFEFORMS aren’t limited to their creative devices.
The first single, “String Theory”, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
