Baltimore progressive tech-death metal quintet Greylotus have released the third and final single from their upcoming debut album. The debut full-length from Greylotus, titled Dawnfall, will see a July 8 release via The Artisan Era.
“Dawnfall serves as a follow-up statement to the Savior EP, which dealt with thrusting inner demons borne of trauma and mental health struggles out into the open, and accepting the reality of existing with them,” says the band.
“In the metaphor of the lotus’ life-cycle, Savior represented the stage in which the seed is buried under the mud – shelled in, unaware, and unable to budge from what it has known. Dawnfall embodies the process of breaking out of the shell and traveling toward the sun’s light, reaching through murky waters and currents, struggling to separate True North from tricks of the refracted light,” they continue.
“Dawnfall explores the self-doubt that accompanies the realization that healing is a non-linear process. It wanders through the pits of self-judgment and confronts what follows when an individual accepts that the best version of themselves is not constrained by perfection.”
