Hickory, NC-based sci-fi metal band, Rapheumets Well (Ra-few-mets), will release their next full-length, Enders Door, via Test Your Metal Records on May 26th. Once again they will bring forth a voyage enriched with lore and a sound that is a complex mix of classical orchestrations, cosmic synths, and extreme metal to portray the epics of parallel worlds.
The synopsis of Enders Door is in the fifth era of the Avomenian Empire, amidst the planetary ruins of Vaath, a rogue traveler would discover an artifact that would forever change his place in the cosmos.
Upon arriving to retrieve the artifact, it became apparent that Eryos’s brother, Nathyiem, would never make it to their arranged meeting point. In departing from the planet Vaath, Eryos received a distress signal from his brother’s ship, coming from an uncharted planet. Upon arriving, he found an odd world inhabited by a mysterious species called the Dreth, led by lecherous matriarch named Eishar. It is here that he would uncover a faced-door, an inter-dimensional gateway to the Ender.
Rapheumets Well has premiered their new musicfor the album’s first single and title track. Check it out right here on .
Drummer Joshua Nassaru Ward comments:
The song ‘Enders Door’ highlights our album’s mission to present this odd story in which the traveler, following his brothers distress beacon from what seems to be a downed ship, finds himself in a very uncompromising situation with a inter-dimensional being and the agenda of a lecherous female named Eishar. The video is completely self-produced and with the help of David ‘King’ Johnson, we tried to capture elements of our story while presenting the technicality and emotion of our music. In many ways we are trying to convey issues we all deal with through our music, such as confusion, anxiety, fear, and revelation in seeking truth. There is symbolism here of course; in our pursuits to find ourselves we must brave trials that permit our weakness to manifest to find tangible truth.
About Rapheumets Well:
Inspired by the fictitious universe of Sovael, Rapheumets Well is the name coined to the conscious deity who oversees the anastomosis of the multiverse, the master of portals and inter-dimensional travel. Being personified as a trickster, Rapheumet often creates chaos for unsuspecting voyagers. The word ‘Well’ refers to the gravity wells, which like black holes, are catalyst of change and gateways between the cosmic plains.
Formed in 2008, 2011 and 2012 saw their first two demos followed by their first self-release full-length, Dimensions, unleashed in 2014 that progressively told a larger story portrayed in a complex saga of Atai (ancient architects) who aid in the propagation of sentient life throughout the multiverse. In 2016, they released their highly praised sophomore album, The Exile, via Test Your Metal Records.
Now in 2017, from the birth of organic matter to great wars that tear the fabric of space/time, the story of Rapheumets Well’s music serves to immerse you into a world of oddities once again with the band’s third release, Enders Door, due out on May 26th, via Test Your Metal Records.
