Italy’s EVEN FLOW is proud to unveil their latest offering “Mediterraneo”, a four-track EP that takes the sounds of progressive metal blended with power metal-esque vocals with a dash of AOR eighties influences. Lyrically, the recording speaks of love, hope, sadness, and joy for the future.
“We decided the sequence of the songs according to the musical power it gave us at the time of writing and recording.” adds the band.
The EP opens up with the powerfully composed “Ocean Lies” with its strong vocal harmonies, that give way to a hint of Latin influences from the way the drums mesh with the guitar solo. Following into “Ray Of Light”, this is a song that speaks of love towards a woman, characterized by a clean guitar intro, working together with a keyboard to create very beautiful melodies to then end with an Arabic influence guitar harmonization. “Leaves” solo piano and voice piece, extremely intimate with the final part of the piano demonstrating strong harmonic tensions decreased to represent a love story between two young people that did not materialize. A song that gives a calm and melancholic balance to relax the listener’s ears bringing them to heavenly visions. “Revelation Day” with lyrics that have a Catholic inspiration, is to be heard very closely in its entirety, its melodic parts are intertwined with more progressive charm. EP closer and title track, “Mediterraneo,” tells a story about a loving relationship between two men, the track has Arabic interludes, many progressive metal parts, and melodic guitar solos.
“Mediterraneo” features Even Flow‘s new lineup with vocalist Marco Pastorino (Fallen Sanctuary, Temperance) and bassist Luca Negro (Temperance) joining the Lunesu brothers Pietro Paolo (guitar) and Giorgio (drums).
The EP was mixed and mastered by Michele Guaitoli (Visions Of Atlantis, Temperance) with artwork by Mickael Briot of Mythrid Art (Nightmare).
