VESANIA Featuring BEHEMOTH, DIMMU BORGIR Members: 'Deus Ex Machina' Album Due In October

VESANIA, the Polish symphonic black metal act which features Orion (BEHEMOTH) and Daray (DIMMU BORGIR, VADER), will release its fourth full-length album, "Deus Ex Machina". on October 28 via Metal Blade Records. The band's first CD since 2007 was recorded at Sound Division Studio, with mastering by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound Studios.

A track from the album, "Innocence", can be streamed below.

VESANIA's roots are firmly planted in Poland, but their reach has been expanding throughout the years across the globe. The collective experience of the members of the band speaks volumes of their knowledge and ability to craft world-class albums.

There's no singular unifying lyrical concept on "Deus Ex Machina", but there's a main theme, a coherent and deliberate thread running from the title through the music.

The title of the album is a term from ancient Greek tragedy and translates to "god from the machine."

The idea for the concept was that a machine, typically a rudimentary crane, would lower a thespian playing god onto the stage to solve the seemingly unsolvable conflict in the plot. In modern entertainment, the term has evolved to primarily refer to a cheap solution in a poorly written script or novel.

Alternatively, "Deus Ex Machina" is a call for any kind of help or intervention because all of the lyrics on the album are hopeless and show characters in situations that leaves them powerless. One of the tracks tells the story of the lowering of an actor, supposedly the god, onto a stage before a corrupted man searching for answers. Instead, that actor is lowered by a noose around their neck, having already died. The lyrics paint a drab picture, particularly when paired with equally bleak music.

VESANIA is:

Orion - Guitar, Voices
Daray - Drums
Siegmar - Synths, Samples
Heinrich - Bass
Valeo - Guitar
