EMETROPIA – As Symphonic as can be: ‘The First Leaf Falls

Mehr Symphonic geht wohl nicht als das, was die schwedische Band EMETROPIA da abliefert. Epische Klänge, opereske weibliche Vocals und eine breite musikalische Ausrichtung von balladesk bis dynamisch und power metallisch. Auf dem noch ausstehenden Debütalbum “Equinox“ führen die fünf Bandmitglieder ihre “Procession of the Kings“ EP fort.

Sängerin Lisa Wallenberg erklärt:

“You could say that ‘The First Leaf Falls‘ is the climax of the album’s second act. All the themes and concepts that have been introduced earlier sort of join together to form this grand epic, where the different characters finally meet and we see the two forces clash with each other. You clearly notice the tonal shifts as the song progresses, moving between mellow and aggressive before culminating in a triumphant climax. I think this is a song where the music tells the story as much as the lyrics do.”

Drummer Oscar Heikkinen führt weiter aus:

“The song has always been appreciated live, as it starts off as sort of a ballad but quickly evolves to something way more powerful and energetic. The First Leaf Falls is also the second longest song on the album, which gives us ample time to explore the different sides of Emetropia. Throughout the song, there’s everything from melancholic parts with some of Lisa’s greatest vocal performances accompanied by Liam at the piano to the fastest and most aggressive solo section anyone in the band has ever recorded!”
