June 4th 2021 will see Chilean avant-garde metal act WOODEN VEINS to release their highly anticipated debut studio album, titled In Finitude, via powerhouse label The Vinyl Division.
Featuring former members of well known doom metal units like Mourning Sun and Mar de Grises, the participants are by far no strangers to the scene. With the idea of creating a different kind of music, including sub genres and traces of other elements, WOODEN VEINS truly create their very own and other-worldy universe of sound.
With a wide range of ingredients, packed into a defined artistic concept & aesthetic, the band’s upcoming debut is a deeply powerful piece of music, exploring the edge of extreme metal’s territories.
“From the beginning, we felt that the chemistry between us was something special, different from anything we had previously done.“ guitarist Juan Escobar explains and continues: “The first demos, before we recorded the album, were very fast and dynamic in composition, with a variety of aesthetic and musical influences, but always with one goal in mind: What the music creates when it gets heard; feelings, wonder, joy, sorrows, memories, etc.”
Inspired by “Poética de Arturo H. Lobos”, a book written by WOODEN VEINS‘ vocalist Javier Cerda, In Finitude talks about life and death, illusions and the existential reflections of being. A profoundly honest and personal debut by the band from Chile, as Juan Escobar reveals: “There are lyrical and musical moments that are very personal and sometimes it is difficult to convey so many emotions in a song. Throughout the creative process, we had several weeks giving meaning to this sound-journey, in the most natural way of expressing it, becoming part of it. In Finitude is an important part of us, of our lives, of the journey we embark on and that defines us as human beings.”
Produced by Juan Escobar at Vultura Studio, Czech Republic and mastered by Magnus Lindberg in Sweden (Cult Of Luna, Tribulation, Dool, Lucifer), WOODEN VEINS recently released a video for the track “The Veiled Curse“, an impressive first glimpse of what to expect from their upcoming record.
