New England-based extreme metal quintet AVERSED has revealed a fourth single, “Close My Eyes,” from their upcoming third release, Impermanent, which is scheduled for release on March 19.
Showcasing vocalist Haydee Irizarry’s ability to alternate between soaring clean vocals and guttural growls, “Close My Eyes” addresses the ubiquitous desire to find purpose beyond the 9 to 5 daily grind.
Says drummer Jeff Saltzman, “This pent-up energy is compounded by our inability to confront the constant feed of inequality and injustice forced into our lives each day, beholden to a system that demands all our time and energy just to survive.”
With the release of Impermanent, AVERSED presents a metal experience cultivated of unprecedented beauty and torment. The third release following 2011’s self-titled EP and 2016’s Renewal EP, Impermanent marks a turning point for the New England scene veterans as they pivot from melodic death metal towards a nuanced balance of blackened and orchestral melodic metal.
AVERSED offered fans a first glimpse of Impermanent in December with a video for the title track, followed last month with a video for the second single, “Laboratory” and the third single, “Abandoned,” earlier this month.
Mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Shadow of Intent), Impermanent illustrates AVERSED’s unique approach to songwriting with nine diverse compositions full of catchy hooks and vast melodies. Pre-orders for Impermanent are available now at https://aversed.bandcamp.com/merch. In addition to the album, a variety of bundles are also available.
