Promethean - Aloades (EP - 2017) - Bandcamp Stream

PROMETHEAN is a Symphonic Blackened Death Metal band formed in late 2013 in Paris, France. It is currently composed of Leo Godart (composition/drums), Nicolas Cardoso (vocals), Matthieu Cardoso (lead guitar), Gaëtan Marquer (rhythm guitar), Dino Dieleman (bass) and Axel Hurard (keyboards), seconded by Olivier Reucher (Remember The Light) for orchestral arrangements.

The first couple of years of the project were dedicated to the learning and arrangements of compositions developed by Leo Godart as well as stabilizing its line-up after the departure of former vocalist Louis Lafitte (Insain, Guttural Deepthroat, Dissected Mind) and guitarist François Chanvallon (Adastrae) after he recorded his parts for what would constitute the band’s debut EP: "Aloades".

"Aloades" is a four tracks EP (21 minutes and a half) produced at the Axone Studio (Paris) and published on February 9th, 2017. It deals mainly with Greek mythology - the title is a reference to the ordeal endured by twins Otus and Ephialtès after they tried to abduct Hera and Artemis. Zeus condemned the vainglorious giants to remain enchained back to back forever at the confines of Tartarus...

However, the fourth track "A Forbidden Symphony" is heralding to Promethean's future full-length album (no date announced at the moment) which will deal with the myths of cosmic horror from unavoidable American writer H.P. Lovecraft.

PROMETHEAN’s music is characterized by intense extreme metal with grandiloquent symphonic accents, inspired from diverse influences in metal (Emperor, Septicflesh, Fleshgod Apocalypse etc.) or classical music (Sergei Prokofiev, Sergei Rachmaninov, Ryan Amon, etc.).
