The modern/alternative metal band from Portugal presents the first breakthrough song for “Aurora”, the debut album that will be released on March, 12th. The single “Everything Repeats” comes with an official music video and brings some new aesthetics and sound.
It’s a first taste of the new sound that SECRET CHORD have been working on for the past two years and promises to surprise the most unwary listeners. “Everything Repeats” is the title of the song chosen by the portuguese band to represent the new album “Aurora”, scheduled for release on March, 12th. The debut single is presented along with an official music video and can be viewed on the Youtube channel of independent label Sleaszy Rider Records.
Unfolding an aesthetic approach never before explored by the quintet, “Everything Repeats” shows a sound that tries to preserve a faint balance between intense melodies, heavy riffs and intricate symphonies. Raquel Subtil’s determined voice is one of the main highlights of the song, which also features the powerful growls of guitarist Carlos Pereira, as well as a cohesive instrumental shared with João Conceição on guitar, Nuno Fidalgo on bass and Afonso Martins on drums.
The lyrical concept of “Everything Repeats” is described by SECRET CHORD’s frontwoman, Raquel Subtil, as “the constant confrontation with our inner being, the one we have to deal with on a daily basis in order to overcome our insecurities and traumas. It is the persistent stubbornness of our mind to see things in a negative way, leading us to commit the most tragic insanities, as if they were the solution to our dilemmas”.
“Everything Repeats” is one of nine tracks included in “Aurora”, SECRET CHORD’s first full-length record, that was recorded, mixed and mastered by producer João Dourado at Golden Jack Studios, in Coimbra. The music video was directed by Carlos Calika, who has worked with the likes of Destroyers Of All, Tales For The Unspoken or ChaosAddiction. The filming took place in “Flashefoco” studios, located in the town of Soure.
