Epoch Of Chirality: With a futuristic spin on the Minoan labyrinth…..

Epoch Of Chirality - Nucleosynthesis

Based in the South West of England, Epoch of Chirality is a unique progressive metal solo project driven by experienced multi-instrumentalist, composer and sci-fi enthusiast Richard How.

The Epoch of Chirality project draws on traditional metal sounds, progressive song structure and exotic synthesizer experimentation to create a unique musical landscape, heavily influenced by sci-fi and fantasy themes.

The track Labyrinth is an epic instrumental prog metal track from the upcoming album Nucleosythesis.

It is a futuristic spin on the Minoan labyrinth from ancient mythology based on the island of Crete, but on a distant planet! There are haunting dark labyrinthine passages, but with hints of light as glimpses of the Mediterranean coast! Recorded in my home studio/living room, 2020.

Many components of the project have been developed over the past 20 years of playing and recording, but with no appreciable exposure into the wider world. 2021 will mark the culmination of the creative journey with the release of the Epoch of Chirality project’s debut album.

Epoch Of Chirality brings an epic amalgamation of metal with soundscapes straight out of an 80s Sci-fi movie soundtrack. Richard How, based in the South West of England, is the experienced multi-instrumentalist, composer and self-confessed Sci-fi geek behind the project. The debut album Nucleosynthesis follows the release of the Dawn Of Chirality EP in 2020 which saw the project begin to emerge into our world; offering a tantalizing taste of what is to come.

2021 marks a significant milestone for the project and the upcoming release of Nucleosynthesis. Epoch of Chirality has been quietly developing with Richard over the past twenty years. Pushing the boundaries of the metal genre is something so many strive to achieve but successfully combining elements of both acoustic and synthesized instruments is no mean feat. The presence of those instantly recognizable nostalgic synths initiates the dimension shift away from this world into another realm.

The traditional heavy elements introduce an intensity that elevates the soundscape. Leaving no musical style or instrument off limits, experimentation and exploration is clearly rooted in the creative process. Whether exploring galaxies lightyears away or crossing through portals between fantasy worlds, Nucleosynthesis launches into a journey through the wonderful and the unknown. The album presents a unique experience through each track. From the atmospheric tranquil serenity of Caravan to the Midnight Mountain to the dark haunting depths of Labyrinth, Nucleosynthesis is an immersive adventure not to be missed.

Why should the sky be the limit when there are worlds to explore in our galaxy and beyond? Fuelled by the need to create music that encapsulates the utter power and depth of metal, with the captivating and epic nature of Sci-fi and fantasy soundscapes, Epoch of Chirality has begun a venture to bring fans an experience like no other.

Epoch Of Chirality – Nucleosynthesis

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5562 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
