London’s Melodic Death/Doom Metal Project ALPHA LYRÆ Reveals Tracklist of the Self-Titled Debut Album

15th March 2024 0 By Jon Deaux

London-based melodic doom/death metaller ALPHA LYRÆ is glad to reveal the tracklist of its self-titled debut album, set to be released on March 22nd as a digipak and on the main download and streaming platforms. The effort will be composed of 6 songs that delight fans of bands like Opeth, My Dying Bride, and Paradise Lost.

Pre-order “Alpha Lyræ” on Bandcamp:

As the opening song of the album,
“Criterion” manages to put the listener into a contemplative trance, and sets the scene for the listening experience yet to come. Lyrically ALPHA LYRÆ explores the futile concept of withholding the world’s atrocities from one’s child as it’s only a matter of time until the child encounters pain in our world. With its doom-laden and gloomy atmosphere, the music follows the lyrical concept perfectly as ALPHA LYRÆ laments his daughter’s eventual exposure to the world. Midway through the song, “Criterion” picks up the listener with hopeful notes. The lyrics follow suit as ALPHA LYRÆ teaches his daughter to cope with inevitable pain in the world.

Born from the creative vision of a Peruvian solo artist residing in London, ALPHA LYRÆ emerges as a deeply personal and introspective musical endeavour. Conceived as a sonic response to the imminent birth of his daughter in 2020, ALPHA LYRÆ draws inspiration from her place in this turbulent world and contemplates her future within it. With unwavering dedication to his daughter, ALPHA LYRÆ unfolds as a profound musical odyssey and serves as more than just an artistic effort; it is a heartfelt exploration and tribute to the anticipated challenges and wonders that will shape the next generation’s journey through life.
