Exclusive Premiere: Yonsample Release Spacey New Single ‘Tibro’
Listen to the Kolkata metallers’ second single off their upcoming album ‘Extropy’ due for release next month
Kolkata metal band Yonsample might have kept things relatively light on their last single “Median,” released in 2014, but their new song is nothing close to being in that space. Says bassist Anirban Banerjee about “Tibro,” which is the second single off their upcoming albumÂ Extropy,Â “This song represents the core element of the band’s sound, which is groove metal or prog-core or modern metal. [It’s] much more guitar-driven.”
“Tibro,” which Banerjee points out is “orbit” spelled backwards, also translates to “high intensity” in Bengali. A treat to a fan of djent and modern metal, the five-minute track has a dreamy guitar tapping section at its base, plus a chaotic riffwork that will get heads bobbing.
Part of the 10-track album which has beenÂ in the works since 2014,Â ExtropyÂ willÂ releaseÂ on December 16th. A new lineup and launchÂ gigs are also in the works. Although the band started out working with Kolkata producer Rhitabrata Kar atÂ RBK studios more than a year ago, recording forÂ ExtropyÂ was completed at Delhi guitarist-producer Keshav Dhar’s [from prog metallers Skyharbor] Illusion Studio in May.
