From the dark north of Sweden comes the Melodic Death/Black Metal band Maestitium. ‘Tale Of The Endless’ is the debut EP telling the story of three people with troubled and dark minds, full of anger, despair and sorrow.
With inspiration from bands like Insomnium, Hinayana and Wolfheart, ‘Tale Of The Endless’ brings epic melodies, blasting drums and a handful of atmosphere. It’s composed/recorded by Elias Westrin (Guitars, Vocals, Synths, Orchestrations) and is mixed/mastered by Robin Leijon. ‘Tale Of The Endless’ features studio musicians like Nils Fjellström aka Dominator (Nordjevel, Myrkskog, Odium, ex Dark Funeral, Aeon,) on drums and Anton Flodin (Deathbreed) on bass.
Below, you can hear the release of their first track “Tale of The Endless”:
This is what Elias had to say about the track:
“’Tale Of The Endless’, on the other hand is “the hard hitter”. It’s about a man who’s ready to leave this world, and his journey to the end.”
Definitely dark subject matter, and both the darkness and intensity of the subject are reflected in the music. But, as forecast above, the song is also undeniably exhilarating.
