PYOGENESIS release their new album ‘A Silent Soul Screams Loud‘ on 24th Jan, out on AFM Records.
The third and last part of PYOGENESIS’ Steampunk trilogy is on its way, ‘A Silent Soul Screams Loud’ will be released on January 24th, 2020 on AFM Records. Alongside the two previous parts, this one deals with with the change of the society in the 19th century. Topics are highlighted such as Napoleon’s reign, his war and Code Civil, Sigmund Freud in view of Religion, Bohemia, a land between the powers, Frankenstein and the first popular literature in horror, Darwinism and the survival of the fittest and last but not least, even a 14 minute opus in three movements: Karl Marx and The Capital!
Musically, the band’s sound connects with the rest of the trilogy which is the essence of all PYOGENESIS records: Melody and melancholy. “Since ever we’ve been working on deeper tunes that captivate its listener and drag him down under the surface of shallowness. With these three records we have not just been trying to attract the people with music. The look and feel to us is as important. That’s why we hired again Stan-W Decker to design – a once more – amazing cover art. The Trinity of Soil, Air and Water is now complete. The complexity and richness of details of the cover has no equal and can maybe only be found in IRON MAIDEN’s artwork-milestone ‘Somewhere In Time’. We wanted a cover you can look at for 30 minutes and even then you’ll find new things. Stan, we take off our hats!”
As before, the band invited friends and bands to participate on the record. One song features Chris Harms from Lord Of The Lost who sings a duet with Flo V Schwarz, this is the first of its kind for PYOGENESIS and their voices match perfectly.
With regards to the format of release, the band are more old fashioned and wanted to release something more tangible than downloads, something people can actually hold in their hands and own. They decided, along with their amazing team at AFM Records, to go the extra mile and to offer several formats for sale, including CD, Vinyl and boxsets.
The album was ecorded and produced again by the band.
“Knowing that we’re not mainstream, we’re not hip or hot, nor for the masses. We could change a few tiny things and sell way more records and tickets. But we don’t want to change a thing! We do it for ourselves. And we are in the lucky position to be heard by a few crazy people from Australia to Canada who enjoy what our work, who like the songs as they are and feel the way we feel. Nothing more. Nothing less.”
