Italian metalcore quintet Forbidden Seasons have released a video for ferocious track ‘Wormhole’, with the band revealing: “The song deals with a very sensitive topic: depression and the pain that it causes, as you can hear in the refrains; despite that, sometimes depression seems to be the only friend in life. The video represents the fight between our dreams and the hard reality, which is symbolized by the dark entity we try to oppose with our music. Its presence oppresses us but in the end is defeated.”
‘Wormhole’ is taken from their recently released debut album ‘Promise’, which is available now.
Hailing from Turin, Italy, the band is comprised of vocalist Mark Seasons, Symon Ray on Lead Guitar, Danny Ghale on Rhythm Guitar, Paul J. Price on Bass and Federico Spagnoli handling both Drums and Keys. Founded in 2015, they simply came together as five individuals intent on realising their dreams to play music. Explaining their moniker the band comment: “It’s about discrimination and lack of half measures in society. Everything is completely bad or good, black or white. There’s no space for gray anymore. Forbidden Seasons, it’s like forbidden feelings, forbidden thoughts, forbidden actions, forbidden goals… So we thought that name fit great with this idea.”
The writing of ‘Promise’ began after their Russian tour in February 2017, with Mark revealing “it was both an amusing and hard at the same time to create it. The lyrics address topics such as loneliness, anger, apathy and misplaced trust, and all of those are reflected on the listener.” Taking their time, recording took place over 7 months at Heavy Tone Studios in Turin, with mixing and mastering by Studio Fredman (Architects, Blood Youth). The outcome is self-described as “really reflecting who we are and the direction we want to take. Both in terms of sound and composition it’s very different from Paramnesia, heavier than our last work; we wanted to create a deeper sound according to our emotional state.” Melodically charged, beauty meeting darkness, their sound evokes Saosin and Underoath, Forbidden Seasons certainly are a promising prospect.
