Following the release of their new song titled “Down to Earth,” Russian melodic death metal band Arcanum Sanctum have released another their new single dubbed “A Perfect Place (to Hide),” which you can check out below in lyric video form.
The two aforementioned tracks appear on the band’s upcoming full-length album titled ‘Ad Astra,’ which, as they say, is “dedicated to the Soviet science fiction and the Golden Age of Space exploration.”
Here’s more info on the new song via the band:
“‘A Perfect Place (to Hide)’ is the heart of our upcoming album ‘Ad Astra’. It reveals the concept behind the album and expands the message of each song. With this album we wanted to share a naive and romanticized picture of the bright and heroic future we discovered in our childhood on the pages of the soviet sci-fi books.
It’s not a secret that things we encounter as kids leave the deepest traces in our souls. By a twist of fate all members of ARCANUM SANCTUM were born at the end of a so-called Golden Age of Space exploration and caught its echoes in a form of sci-fi books, movies, cartoons and associated soundtracks still popular in our childhood.
Unfortunately we see that the 21st century has not become a Space Age predicted by sci-fi authors. Our childish dreams about exciting adventures in outer space haven’t come true. And it is these shattered dreams our album ‘Ad Astra’ is dedicated to!”
‘Ad Astra’ (due out August 28th – pre-order) was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö, and the new singles also marks the debut of their new vocalist Ivan Beschastny.
