Release: 18 November 2022

FIELDS OF REGRET has released their self-titled debut EP. The horror fuelled, gothic metal and punk offering from the Belgian-based musician Filip Van Lysebeth is available on all streaming platforms. The project unleashes monstrous and disturbing compositions. “Pinky Lace And Pixie Dust”, the first single, released early in September provided a glimpse of the groove riffs, fast-paced instrumentation and devilish vocals found in FIELDS OF REGRET’s sound.

Bringing a industrial edge, FIELDS OF REGRET incorporates impactful rhythmic riffs across their tracks. Opening with “Zu All The Ant”, distorted guitars enveloped in fuzz contrast with a carnivalesque metallic riff running throughout the verses. “Pinky Lace and Pixie Dust” delivers an eerily upbeat rhythm pattern, with striking guitar leads and pounding percussion. Distinctive vocals emphasise the horror themes that bleed through FIELDS OF REGRET’s music. Taking a pop-punk style song-structure and twisting it into a dissonant and discordant track, “Algoritmic Lie” reflects a major aspect of our modern lives, and in typical FIELDS OF REGRET fashion it’ll leave a sour taste in your mouth. The title track releases an all godly attack of metal instrumentation in a rhythmic explosion. FIELD OF REGRET’s signature sinister vocals ensure to keep sweet dreams at bay. Further experimentation is seen through the concluding “Tattoos and Tears”. Taking a more extreme approach, FIELDS OF REGRET delves deeper into the depths with ludicrously heavy guitars, while the melodic guitar lead adds in a brighter tone. A serene, minimal instrumental section creates a further disparity within this unchained track.

Become immersed into the weird and wonderful nightmare manifested by FIELDS OF REGRET. A grim mirroring of society through heavy instrumentation with a ghoulish twist, the chilling self-titled EP opens the doors to a realm of terror.
