ADDICTIVITIES PT. 1
With their new album "Addictivities Part 1" the Austrian Metalheads RELINQUISHED prove that good things just take a while. Five years after their last album "Onward Anguishes" and just in time for the bands 15th birthday, the Melodic Death Metal veterans from Tyrol show that they want to know it again.
With "Addictivities Part 1" the band open a new chapter, which doesn't tie in musically and contentwise with their earlier albums, but is to be seen as a prequel. What remains the same is that "Addictivities Part 1" which will be released in 2019 via NRT-Records, is again a concept album with a self-contained history. The album has also been brilliantly packaged thanks to the artwork of DIS [Art] Design (among others Eternal Silence, Eagleheart). The nine songs tell the story of RELINQUISHED's debut album "Susanna Lies In Ashes". Thematically this time it is about the drug-addicted protagonist Daniel and his brutal suffering.
RELINQUISHED can be classified stylistically close to bands like old Amorphis, Opeth, Katatonia or At The Gates and inspire with epic extreme metal songs like the already released lyric video for the first single "Avalanche Of Impressions".
