French symphonic gothic ensemble WHYZDOM will release its sophomore album, “Blind?”, on October 30 via Scarlet Records. According to a press release, the band “blends intricate orchestral parts (including all the subtleties of strings, winds, brass, classical percussions, piano, harp, etc.) and a real choir with the power of heavy metal. Through a coherence that hides the inherent complexity of this genre, Elvyne Lorient‘s passionate melodies immediately stick into your mind, conveying pure emotions right from the very first note she sings.
“The album title not only refers to the blindness of people towards what’s happening around them, but also to the fact that we, as humans, often deliberately choose to be blind in many uncomfortable circumstances, which eventually lead us on the wrong path of life.”
A trailer for the album can be seen below.
“Blind?” was produced by Vynce Leff, recorded and mixed in Paris at Powermania Studio and mastered by Mathieu Gillon and Vynce Leff at 120dB Studio. The stunning artwork is a collaboration between X-Nihilo Design, Les Créations Vultus and Florent Cuaz.

WHYZDOM‘s debut album, “From The Brink Of Infinity”, was released in September 2009 via Ascendance Records.
