Official press release:
Sicocis have scheduled Feb. 24th as the release date for their anticipated album, Requiem Of The World on M-Theory Audio. The band follow-up their first video, “We Shall Rise”, with another clip showcasing this multifaceted Vegas band’s abilities.
“‘Beyond the Quantum Waves’ is our epic, melodic, sci-fi episode that combines great progressive elements with a dark cyber cloud hanging over it as you listen.”
Explains guitarist Rafael Ortega, who created the lyric video.
Singer/guitarist Ernie Rodrigues explains:
“It’s the contradictory lyrical concept about the atom and how scientists found this everlasting power for life and yet we used it to destroy, hence the atom bomb. Einstein knew that by using it as a weapon it would cause more pain and suffering as mankind knows its power only as a weapon and not for something that can progress life. We tried to bring that element of science and technology to the music, as well, mixing in synthetic sounds with organic orchestrations and choir fusing that progressive metal groove with a shred metal piece.”
Pre-orders for Sicocis’ Requiem Of The World are already being taken at the label’s website www.m-theoryaudio.com/store
