«Their first single The Cult is about a pagan cult that heavily indulges in psychoactive substances. The song starts with a syncopated section followed by a folky yet intense main riff solidified by fast and sustained blast beats. The band explains it in their own words»:
«This song was probably the one that was written in the shortest amount of time. Tristan had written the main riff many years ago and we all liked it, so we decided to write a song based on it. We felt it was catchy and upbeat, but still dark and aggressive enough to catch the listener’s attention. We chose this song for our clip because it’s a short and well-rounded song that gives an accurate depiction of the sound we’re going for and the theme would easily translate into an interesting storyline for the video. The dark lyrics coupled with upbeat riffs make for an interesting contrast that brings the song to another level».
With their unique sound, Fall of Stasis caters to folk, black, progressive and death metal fans alike, but also to the uninitiated, thanks to their original and catchy melodies. The Montreal-based band has shared the stage with many notable local and international bands such as The Agonist, Wolfheart and Beyond Creation.
The Chronophagist is produced by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy). The album is due out on February 25, 2022.
The ten pounding tracks contained within showcase the wide range of influences behind the six musicians culminating in brutal symphonic music that coasts between black and death metal along with prog realms and is as unpredictable as it is cohesive.
