Zenith Myth Unveils New Single and Announces New LP Eclipsed V
After the crushingly cathartic eponymous debut, Zenith Myth’s sophomore effort “Eclipsed V” has seen the project shift into electronic experimentation mode. With a metronomic pulse, the record manages to mesh mid tempo arpeggiated synths with intricate drum programming and real drums to bend genres and analog sounds. The guitars are all still in there (6 different guitarists played on the record), but they give way to drones and modulated synthesizers that capture a subtler, more nuanced instrumental dreamscapes this time out. Think eighties synth progressions with classic rock drum fills, alongside waved out guitar loops woven together just enough to bring you in but disorient simultaneously, and you pretty much get the idea of what “Eclipsed V” sounds like.
Deconstructionist from the start, the record transports you to uncharted territory melding mesmerizing basslines, sampled sounds with dark droned out guitars and synths.There are also acoustic guitar flourishes at times hinting at the rock sounds of a young Fleetwood Mac, with the ambience of Boards of Canada and some early Cure melancholy thrown in for good measure.
The must hear album is set for release August 21st. Discover lead track “Shadow Fortune” taken from the release streaming in full here-
