Italian technical death metal squad Hideous Divinity have dropped their new track, “Acheron, Stream of Woe,” which you can check out below in official lyric video form. The song hails from the band’s upcoming ‘LV-426’ EP, which officially comes out on April 23rd through Century Media Records (pre-order). “The concept of the EP is a sub-narrative of the second Alien movie, directed by James Cameron,” notes a press release.
Hideous Divinity say, “’Acheron, Stream of Woe’ marks another step in our sound progression. Just like James Horner’s original score, we searched for all the dramatic and dissonant elements our music could achieve. It has been a great time, both the songwriting and the studio time. We felt good, we felt at home.”
They continue, “Oh, and this time is about Aliens. Not a coincidence, for sure. A year has passed from the beginning of… all this. A year during which we all had to face our monsters. Very real ones. Enjoy.”
They add, “We chose to concentrate on the story of Rebeca ‘Newt’ Jorden, the 6-year old girl rescued on the alien infested planetoid LV-426 by Ellen Ripley. We live the story from her point of view, a mixture of childhood’s happy life and memories cut off by the alien attack.”
