Seattle progressive metalcore / djent quartet DRAEMORA release their first full length entitled “Death Rectangle” to follow their 2020 EP “Awakening” (you may be familiar with).
On this new album, Draemora has truly explored an evolution from their previous release. Musically, the collection of songs are mostly dark and heavy sounding. It wasn’t intentional, but when the band was writing the new record, they were all locked up and lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic, along with watching their hometown riot during George Floyd protests. The songs all have deep meaning to the band, but they strayed away from using any specific references so that the listener could make it whatever their imagination wants it to be.
The album is slated for release on June 18th and is recommended for fans of Wage War, Whitechapel, Periphery, Architects, Spiritbox.
The band adds:
“We are really finding our sound on this album and where we all fit together and the two singles on here were so obvious to us because they sounded so good as demos. We could tell instantly that “Death Rectangle” was a single, it’s got a catchy riff, pounding drum parts and a chorus that we hope everyone will join in on when we can eventually play it live. Our planned second single “Victorious” is exactly the same way. We were going to actually separate it from the album and let it be a song on its own, but at the last minute, we decided it was the perfect way to end the album, because it has that great classic formula in there with a twist to the parts that really puts our stamp on it in a great way. Our main goal in mind for this release was that we wanted people to enjoy it live, so we made big choruses and really big recognizable parts that made us feel great when we were writing the whole record. It’s 10 songs that we all felt were nothing but bangers, we don’t put filler on anything, if there were only 8 good songs out of 50, then the album would be 8 songs and that’s that. As far as the next thing, we’re already working out new stuff as we’ve finished this so hopefully next year we’ll be back with another full length, that’s the goal at least.”
