MUSIC NEWS: ICYMI - Ballarat legends Ebonivory have a brand new tune out to feast your ears on!
Despite the calamitous circumstances surrounding the music world right now, the future for Aussie prog looks lustrous thanks in part to the continued brilliance wielded by Ballarat prog prodigies Ebonivory. Resoundingly considered as one of the fastest rising acts in the Aussie prog scene, Ebonivory have once again cemented their stellar reputation with another bout of elegant heavy brilliance with their brand new tune (and music video too!) for Introvection.
Balancing shimmering ambience with brawling ferocity, Introvection offers yet another glimpse into the quintet's upcoming new album The Long Dream I due out on June 5th via Wild Thing Records. With subtle melodic references to previous jangly jam Tales of Termina amid its own glistening guitarwork and complex arrangements, Introvection is a striking journey that significantly tugs at the heartstrings while riffing at your mosh seams in compelling fashion:
“Introvection is an endless deep dive into the self. Opening with a descending spiral of riffs and transitioning into truly heartfelt reflection, this song encapsulates the vastly different stages of self-grieving and acceptance after trauma. In signature fashion, Introvection showcases our motivations as Ebonivory; to create an experience that hits hard without being overbearing, is musically complex whilst exercising restraint, and having the most fun possible without sacrificing the integrity of our art" - Charlie Powlett, frontman
With the group's upcoming album The Long Dream I marking the first of a two-part concept album, there is a whole lot more magic set to unveil as the group careen unwaveringly into the future of the progressive music stratosphere. Part alt rock visionaries, metal behemoths and innovative sonic beasts, Ebonivory are a band you need in your life, whether you're a heavy fan or not. Introvection is out in the world now, and as an added treat you can also check out the accompanying music video to add a bit of sparkle to the current iso-life thrust upon us.
