Boston-bred progressive, symphonic metal band WILDERUN have just released a brand new single, “Distraction I”. The new track is the second single off the band’s fourth full-length album, Epigone, which is set for release on January 7th via Century Media. Watch the immersive 3D video directed by Miles Skarin, with visuals inspired by the Epigone album cover artist Kim Keever, Check it out below.
Distraction I is the first movement in the 4-part suite that closes the album. Musically, Distraction I is far more straightforward than a typical Wilderun song and relies more heavily on atmosphere as a means of creating momentum throughout the track.
It also is one of the more synth-heavy tracks on the record, utilizing dense tapestries of largely atonal sounds to develop a unique sonic space that is both surreal and expansive. It is the calm before the storm and the sign of things to come,” states WILDERUN bassist Dan Müller.
