Nearly 3 years after their hugely acclaimed last album, The Fallen Crimson, envy will release their new EP, Seimei, on November 9, 2022.
Seimei contains 3 songs: "Seimei", "Zanshin" and "Yamayura" It is a title that entrusts the word "Seimei" to the usual way of life that awaits us, finding a small hope in the dark passage of time.
Recording and mixing for Seimei was handled by Takaaki Mino – of the Japanese band, toe – creating a natural yet intense sound. The artwork is by Cris Crude – of beloved American screamo band, pg.99 – who also made the art for envy’s "Alnair In August" single (2018).
envy will start their 2022 European Tour on October 13. The band’s first tour in 3 years will see them visit 16 cities across 4 countries, including France, Spain, Germany, and Netherlands.
It's like being swept on a transcendent journey, where the soaring melodies lift you into a realm of pure escape, embodying a sense of flying away from the mundane. Each note weaves a tapestry of eternal sorrow and compassion, an exquisite balance of sadness and joy that echoes the complex emotions of life itself. lecassette8
I love the light and shade between Bryan's dirty and Emma's forlorn vocals. There are so many layers to this recording that are driven home through contrast. Plus the riffs are brilliant and get me moving. I can't stop listening to Thou and Emma in general lately. spaceman2250
Je ne possède aucun disque metal instrumental. Sauf celui-ci. Et pour un gros fan de voix comme moi, ça en dit long.
Pour la faire courte, le son est ENORME, et les riffs sont légendaires. Envoûtant. gregory duveau
