Sunpocrisy Eyegasm, Hallelujah! cover
Post-progressive metal band Sunpocrisy will release their highly anticipated record “Eyegasm, Hallelujah!” on November 1st, 2015 on CD and digital.

The album, an overwhelming, stellar and progressive post-mental eargasm, will be available soon in vinyl gatefold 2XLP together with Wooaaargh Records, Dullest Records, Shove Records and Drown Within Records.

The project was born in 2007 as a death/progressive band and recorded the first EP called "Atman EP". In 2010 the artistic ambitions of the band start to develop in an unpredictable way: songwriting becomes more complex, and the sheer death metal of the beginnings gives way to an expanded line up with three guitars and keyboard/electronics.

Sunpocrisy becomes a Postmetal/Progressive beast with a wider scope and a huge palette. The next (il)logical step is a new album: "Samaroid Dioramas", engineered at Studio 73 by Riccardo Pasini (Ephel Duath, The Secret) in 2011, gets released in February 2012 to an overwhelmingly positive feedback.

The band pushed everything to a higher level, producing a concept album which kicks off a string of successful live dates. Even the live show - wherever the band plays - moves up a notch (or twelve): live-controlled lasers, projections, atmospheric and strobe lights complete an impressive wall of sound delivered with amazing technical skills.

The band created a multi-layered dichotomy between superb melodic sections & roaring wall of sound. “Eyegasm, Hallelujah!”, recorded in Ravenna, Italy by Riccardo Pasini (The Secret, Nero di Marte, Ephel Duath) and mastered in Chicago by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Voivod, Pelican, Yob, Wovenhand, Minsk) is a concept album.

“In this new record, considered as a sequel of "Samaroid Dioramas", the concept is developed from the detaching from the earth surface, to the white unknown, in 9 chapters. Where S|D stops, E|H starts, with a bright path, from the slow rebirth to the final strength effort, and then the rest. An awakening, an escape, from the physical known condition to an abstract addiction of life to life itself, through the grown awareness of what a body needs. The main figure is the Peacock, symbol of renaissance and pureness, strength, courage and resistance. Its bravery is constantly fighting with a real, human shaped of course, consciousness about the pain, exploding in a desperate search to find its perfect half, until it's found. Two parts of the same thing, melting together, originating the great white, the eyegasm. Hallelujah!”.
