Out Now: Apex by Mycelia
The new full-length album, Apex by Mycelia is out worldwide today! Drawing on influences ranging from hardcore, metal and djent to jazz and classic film scores, the Swiss six-piece has continually baffled both critics and fans with their complex, heavy-yet-catchy arrangements. The band’s signature sound pairs groovy, crushing rhythmic sections with subtle, intricate melodies, on top of surgically precise drumming and vocal arrangements that range from soaring clean vocals to utterly brutal screams and growls. The album was produced by Marc Trummer, and mixed by Joshua Wickman (Oceans Ate Alaska, Within the Ruins, King 810) at Dreadcore Productions. Apex features thirteen complex, memorable songs which promise to further establish Mycelia as one of Switzerland’s finest heavy bands. Highlights on the album include videos for the songs ‘Eight Milligrams’ and ‘Nefarious Seeds’.
RTMB Music gives it (9.5/10) saying “Apex by Mycelia delivers amazing production and aggressive originality, this album is a modern prog monster!” and Metal Trenches gives it (9/10) stating “Mycelia are a band on the rise, and Apex is an excellent album!” Metal Factory gives it (8.5/10) saying “Mycelia are so damn original and unique within the metal genre!” Buy the full album on iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play, and stream the single via Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and more.
