This is the third album for the French Post-Metal/Sludge band and they deliver a disturbing and noisy mixture of heaviness and gloominess. With roots back both to Sepultura/Soulfly and Kyuss/Monster Magnet, but emerging a Post-Rock/Post-Metal edge and exploring the darkest corners of soul and contorted music, ASIDEFROMADAY merged the vibe of Depressive (Black) Metal with the energy, noisiness and strength of Modern Metal while the seven epic tracks of “Chasing Shadows” it’s a fearful voyage colored with complexity, flavored with raw aggression and twisted ambiance.
This is definitively not an easy-listening, but darkness has its own beauty and ASIDEFROMADAY explore and reveals those aspects step by step.
SIDEFROMADAY is a French progressive postcore band formed in 2000. After two releases in 2001 and 2003, Asidefromaday’s sound has progressed from early material being heavily metal and hardcore influenced to one much less aggressive and more concerned with orchestration.
The band releases “Divine Proportion” in 2005 (Exutoire Records/Impure Muzik Records) and “Manufactured Landscape” in 2008 on Division Records (CD/LP). In 2009, “ML” was “awarded” with a second press in a beautiful CD collector limited edition.
The band has toured a lot, more than 250 shows all over Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway…) with such as bands as Gojira, Cult Of Luna, Envy, Russian Circles, Anodyne, Baroness, Keelhaul, Knut, EF…
