Carmeria


Sydney’s Dark Symphonic Metal Powerhouse Release Their Atmospheric New Album ‘Advenae’

With their full-length debut album now unleashed, Carmeria are set to establish themselves as Australia’s premier Symphonic-Goth Metal act. Embracing the gothic orchestral edge of music that so few dare to venture, the Australian metal visionaries take on the international heavy music scene with powerful vocals, crushing guitars and orchestrations on a world-class level. Their new album ‘Advenae’ is multi-layered, complex in its construction, varied, dramatic, and full of competing styles of music, everything from heavy metal, classic rock, goth rock to melodic metal. 

‘Advenae’ treats the listener to savagely powerful riffs, groovy bass & drum rhythm patterns, anthemic choruses, methodically curated guitar solos and soaring orchestral layers showcasing a band that is bold and confident in their unique sound. Through the entirety of the album, the instrumentation oscillates between ferocious riffs curating inevitable tension and encapsulating spacious passages providing a colorful soundscape for Jordan Von Grae’s dynamic vocals.

Frontman Jordan Von Grae on the new album ‘This album has been 6 years in the making. From multiple line-up changes to various developments in direction, it feels quite surreal to finally release this body of work. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve created, and are thrilled to be building on the momentum we’ve harnessed over the last 12 months. The band is in a brilliant phase of production and creativity at the moment. I am extremely excited for the future of Carmeria, and can’t wait to witness the response to this album.’ 

Returning to the fold with a bombastic new line-up and coming off their globally recognized singles ‘Relinquished’, ‘To Lead The Blind’, ‘Morningstar’ and ‘Celestia’, Carmeria are showing no signs of slowing down after signing with Destroy All Lines Agency for bookings in Australia & New Zealand and a worldwide management deal with Australia’s premier alternative artist management agency Hard Drive Agency. 

With the release of ‘Advenae’, an album tour in the works, Carmeria are ready to unleash their signature sound on the global stage. Fans of the symphonic metal outfit have long-awaited a full-length offering from the band, and if the four album singles are anything to go by, ‘Advenae’ is well and truly worth the wait!
