“Debris // Essence” is the first single from the band’s debut full-length album II which is scheduled for a worldwide release on April 23, 2021. The album was produced by Matteo Magni (Anewrage, Deep As Ocean) at Magnitude Recordings.
“Debris // Essence is an immersion through consciousness” says guitarist Gabriele Papagni. “The song was written to bring out instinctive passions oppressed by the imposed patterns that are dictated by reality. We chose this song as the first single from the album, because the song summarizes the varying aspects of our sound and style.”
II by Benthos is a stunning debut of experimental progressive metal. Featuring seven tracks showcasing the band’s technical prowess, II quickly catapults the band onto the global metal scene alongside the likes of Periphery, Between The Buried And Me, TesseracT, Sikth, and Meshuggah. The album tells a first-person story about the opposing forces of dualism such as life vs death, intuition vs rationality, and finite vs infinite concepts. The first single “Debris // Essence” is an immersion through consciousness represented with a dive into the deepest part of the abyss. “Cartesio” is the second single off the album which represents the beginning of the inner journey described throughout the album. The third single “Talk To Me Dragonfly!” is a fast-paced jazz-infused staccato of progressive metal which brings the listener on a confrontation with one’s negativity resulting in awareness, acceptance, and improvement towards positivity. On II by Benthos there is a lot to digest on this amazing album, but one thing is certain… after you are done digesting this sensory feast you’ll be wanting more!
