Vesania is a Polish symphonic yet theatrical black metal five-piece act that collects the talents of Tomasz Wróblewski (Behemoth) and Dariusz Brzozowski (Dimmu Borgir, and Vader) into a truly exquisite, top-notch musical endeavor unlike any other of its kind.
The act is preparing to release their fourth full-length studio record entitled ‘Deus Ex Machina’, on October 28th via Metal Blade Records. ‘Deus Ex Machina’ marks the return of Vesania after their 2007 release, ‘Distractive Killusions’, which was recorded at Sound Division Studio, with mastering by Visceral Sound Studios.
Vesania singularity detaches them from the commonly known black metal divergences, although strongly tied to the genre, their sonority present us with a more sinister realm of orchestral compositions combined with pierced symphonic elements, somehow not entirely resembling to Dimmu Borgir as one could wrongly assume, neither as savage and twisted as Behemoth’s latest offerings.
The act roots are deeply related to Poland, only the bands reach has extended beyond borders throughout the aging, as the changes and orientations of its musicians shows us that limiting Vesania to one single flag would be a misunderstanding.
Undertaking ‘Deus Ex Machina’ lyricism into a singular concept holds many different substances, even so the entire album remains bound to one topic, surfacing Greek mythological aspects as the title, which means “God from the machine”, is a coherent and deliberated threat unseeingly thriving to resolve the ultimate plot set in the lyrical side of matters.
Nowadays, and alternatively speaking in a modern context, ‘Deus Ex Machina’ is a call for any sort of help or mechanical intervention, or a very poorly written novel or cheap solution.
