Hot off the back of the release of their first official single ‘Evasion’ which is taken from the up-coming debut album ‘Penumbra‘, London based modern metallers Khaidian (Kay. Dee. An) have unveiled another track called “Sense Of The Spherical‘. With a stunning lyric video to accompany the release, Khaidian are intent on delivering only their best, something that is clear from aspect of the new track.
John Tyrell (Guitar/Programming) also created the lyric video for ‘Sense Of The Spherical’, the visual aspect of the band is equally important as the music. Here’s what John had to say about the new track:
“The themes of Sense of the Spherical are, like Evasion, about music. The video doesn’t really delve too deeply into the lyrical themes like Evasion though, instead we decided to experiment with visuals to compliment the musical journey. Everything, bar the lyrics themselves, was filmed and created using only practical effects; using cymatics and lycopodium powder, inks, condensed milk and hydrogen peroxide, and even ferro fluid and magnets. It’s a bit of an alchemists wet dream.”.
Sense Of The Spherical is taken from the band’s debut album ‘Penumbra‘ which will be released on the 18th of January 2019 through Armalyte Industries. You can pre-order the album right now in both digital and physical formats at https://armalyte.bandcamp.com/album/khaidian-penumbra.
Founded in 2010 by guitarist/programmer John Tyrell (ex Interlock) and bassist Joseph Perumal (Mortad/ex-Almamorta), Khaidian was created with a vision – to meld fury with technology; to create something special, to push the boundaries of both Metal and Electronica, to bring the world something…. Different.
Striving to offer something unique and fresh to the world of heavy music, London based Khaidian (Kay. Dee. An) have been through an eight-year journey to complete their line-up and discover the sound that will define them.
Initially plagued by line up changes, it became increasingly difficult for John and Joe’s bold vision to be realised. Frustrations mounted, hope was nearly lost.
Then, in the spring of 2014, Andy Hutton (ex Stoopi/Dragnerve) was handed the vocal reigns.
Eschewing the traditional “Screamy/Growly” metal vocal clichés, Andy, John and Joe quickly realised that the initial vision for Khaidian had been surpassed – they were taking this music in a direction no one had expected – they were doing something truly unique.
…It was going to take a hell of a drummer to be able to keep up.
Thankfully, they found a hell of a drummer in Paul Fowler (ex Dragnerve), and Paul was swiftly enlisted to handle the percussion duties.
Initially expecting to release their debut album in 2016, the bottom fell out of the band as Paul left. Khaidian, an album ready to release, found themselves in line-up hell. A year of frantically trying to fill Paul’s boots commenced, without any luck.
In mid-2018 however, longtime friend, Kris Perrin (Gravil, ex-One Fell Down, Faux Fighters) immediately joined Khaidian on drums, after the announcement of Gravil’s hiatus. Perrin, previously ran with Andy in 90’s “flicknife metal” band Stoopi and filled in for Paul during at their Kill II This show in London.
The line up was complete. Khaidian was finally taking flight.
Four talented and experienced musicians, each from very different backgrounds, bringing a range of styles, skills and influences to the table, to create something the world has never heard before.
Khaidian, stronger than ever, will be releasing their debut album in January 2019. The unique range of styles, skills and influences will be on display throughout UK and European shows, backed up by a synchronised video projection screen.
