Mercurial:Proggressive Metal from United States.
|The Static and the Noise||Full-length||2017|
|It’s Gonna Be Me||Single||2018|
This project supports the completion of Mercurial, the third full-length release from Iris Divine, a progressive metal band from Northern Virginia.
We’re back with our most concise and focused statement to date. Mercurial is the sound of a power trio reconnecting as players, with guitar/bass/drums as a cohesive entity. This album is an up-tempo, aggressive affair with driving riffs that incorporates alternative and punk sounds into a progressive metal foundation, an array of metallic, anthemic and tribal grooves, and always focused on the song. It is a meticulous process, but we believe the music and you deserve it!
Though music has been recorded, there is still much to be done – pressing, artwork, packaging, videos, merchandise, promotion – everything that goes into putting a professional-quality physical release into your hands!
For this album, we enlisted Tony Correlli at Deep End Studio (Baltimore, MD) to handle mixing and mastering. His production expertise on Mercurial meets, if not exceeds, the standards of our last two releases with energy in spades.
The professional audio production is matched by the CD packaging, an 8-panel digipack with dramatic full color artwork, including full album lyrics. It features photography by Shane Gardner, a Baltimore-based published photographer, who also designed the entire album layout.
We are asking for your help to make this a viable campaign. We expect the album to be available digitally in May 2022. Kickstarter rewards of CDs, T-shirts (TWO TO CHOOSE FROM), along with other mementos from the recording process, will ship in June 2022.
We cannot wait to share this album with you! As a progressive metal band that has been doing our own thing from the start, your support is invaluable to us and in keeping independent heavy music alive. Thank you for supporting our ambitions and helping to bring Mercurial to life.
With much love,
Brian, Scott and Navid.
