Vancouver’s Dyatlove have launched the pre-order for their self-titled debut EP due out May 29th. Along with the digital release of the EP, the band will be issuing a cassette version from Coup Sur Coup Records that will feature an exclusive bonus track ‘Die! Kill! Pig!’. Recorded at Rain City Recorders with Matt Roach over the course of a few days, Dyatlove‘s sound is eclectic and diverse, at times morose and at other, heavy sludge. An EP that requires attention to take in, each song takes the listener on a ride with complex lyrical content aiming to grab attention.
Guitarist Rikki Jennings-Buford shares his thoughts on the EP: “I think this EP will be appreciated by more than just fans of heavy music. As musicians, we write the music that we want to hear and we aren’t fans of just metal. There is something for everyone who digs guitar-based music on this EP. We hope these 4 songs give you a good representation of our inspirations and where we could go musically.”
In addition to the EP’s pre-order, the band has released their music video for the single ‘Fragile Fixation’.
The single is the result of Sam Caviglia (guitar/vocals) returning from a getaway with the idea for the song. It evolved into a track that is one of their more classically structured songs, but they felt it would be a song that most people would gravitate to right away.
Lyrically it is about the pull of depression and not knowing how to get out of it and how it can take over your entire frame of thinking. Understanding you are hurting people but not knowing how to get out of it.
