UK Prog metallers hAND are currently in the midst of writing their as yet untitled third album. It is a concept album exploring the nature and fluidity of sexuality, as well as differing relationship structures between human beings. Taken from one person’s perspective it reflects their experiences and journey up to a certain point.
In a recent blog post on the bands official site they revealed “Currently we are half way done with writing the new album, with lots of further ideas and demos floating around for the remaining half. One of the tracks we have been working on is Chiptune inspired; we’ve been having a lot of fun utilizing synths and different effects to get a quirky and fun sound for that track. On others we’ve stripped it right back to just Kat and a piano, we wanted to get some real emotional depth in this piece. It is a broad subject to approach, but we feel the end result will be an interesting and engaging experience.”
A free download of Anthem (demo version) off the upcoming album is available from www.handtheband.com/downloads.php
