Draemora: Anyone could very easily imprint their own life into the lyric….

Draemora - Death Rectangle

The album Death Rectangle will be released June 18, 2021, and the band is Draemora.

«Lyrically with Death Rectangle I wanted to make songs that anyone could very easily imprint their own life into. These songs all have deep meaning to me but we stayed away from using any specific references so that the listener could make it whatever their imagination wants it to be. We think that is the best way to make a song. Musically this collection of songs is mostly dark and heavy sounding. It wasn’t intentional, but like we’ve said before, when this was written we were all locked up and lost our jobs, and had to watch the world riot and go nuts so we’re not surprised it sounds that way», states Draemora.

Seattle’s Draemora has a new album on the horizon Death Rectangle and leading up to it, they are giving fans a taste with the single “Victorious”. As they have grown over the past year, they have solidified their personal sound and clearly fallen into their groove; an apt blend of core styles that are both powerful and heavy, with catchy chorus crafted for live performances. The track Victorious,

Lyrically, Draemora’s music revolves around personal topics and while Death Rectangle follows that theme partially, it has a lot of commentary on global events in 2020/21 and sociological ideas. The single Victorious was a last-minute addition to the end of the album and the band feels like it is one of the strongest songs of the lot despite it being written in a single evening. All of the parts flow together and the chorus makes this song a great progressive anthem that listeners can scream along with. Draemora explains further:

«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. We want people to enjoy it live, so we made big choruses and really big recognizable parts».

Towards the end of 2019, Jared Conellie (drums) started working with Terry Paulson (guitar/vocals) on a new project that would become Draemora. They released their debut EP Awakening in 2020 and immediately after its release, together with Ricy Bjorklund (bass) and Taylor Wood (vocals) they began writing for Death Rectangle, their first full length. They are working on the next full length, so fans won’t have long to wait for more music.

Draemora is recommended for fans of Wage War, Whitechapel, and Periphery.


About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
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.
