Whyzdom - New Album Title Revealed

French metallers Whyzdom, who recently announced the addition of singer Clémentine Delauney to the group's ranks Link], have set Blind? as the title of their upcoming second album.

The band commented: "It is dedicated to people who follow misleading paths, misguided by the ones who love or hate or try to control them, or even sometimes by their own pride. We are pretty convinced that each and everyone of us can recognize him or herself in this situation one day or the other. Following this idea, we called this album: Blind?. We are even happier to announce that the recording sessions will start on 21st Feb. 2011. The whole week (and more if needed) will be dedicated to drums. Other sessions will follow until spring. Mix and mastering should be done during summer. We expect to release Blind?, late 2011."

"Dear Friends,

We are very proud to present you today the vocalist who joined us to give Whyzdom a new voice.

Motivated by the everlasting will to let her voice express itself in a symphonic metal band, it's an immense pleasure to welcome her in our family.

We invite you all to welcome her as well on MySpace, Facebook or even more directly on our forum: http://forum.whyzdom.com/.

Whyzdom - Vocalist Leaves The Band, Seek Replacement

French metallers Whyzdom have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Dear friends

We are very sad to announce that Telya recently decided to leave Whyzdom.

We want to thank Telya for all the great moments we shared. They will remain in our memories forever. We wish her an enormous success and we surely will have the pleasure to hear and see her again in other projects that will reveal her great talent.

Here is the message she wanted us to pass: "Dear all! All beautiful stories come to an end. The end of an adventure for me. I'm announcing that I decided to quit Whyzdom. The reasons that led me to this choice are both personal and artistic. The band project of Vynce was a fantastic experience from the artistic as well as human viewpoint. As a young singer, it allowed me to learn many things, to meet great people, to live magical instants on stage. However, all has not been simple and easy and I've come to a time when it's difficult for me to make concessions and to go against my own choices and my artistic will. I've always been honest with my convictions and with myself, so I don't cheat with what I feel. This decision has been made very carefully, and I hope you will understand it and take it as good as possible. It is necessary to allow me to go on an artistic way that fits me better and that will make me evolve at my own pace. I'll keep you informed with my future projects via my personel MySpace. Kisses from the deep of my heart and much more..."

Of course, Whyzdom is still alive and kicking! The band remains strong and united and ready to meet all the challenges we can find!

Firstly, the band will continue to perform live with a guest singer, until we'll be able to definitely announce the name of our new front woman. More info about our guest singer will follow in the next few days.

Secondly, the composition of our forthcoming album is almost done. 14 tracks have been under work for several monthes. 11 among them stand out, so we're already working on the arrangements. 1 or 2 more songs will also be recorded to be used as "bonus" or on a potential single. The visual concept is also under work in close collaboration with Les Creations Vultus, and we are already thinking about shooting a video clip with them. The album title should be announced in the next few weeks. Whyzdom should be entering the studio next December.

It will be:
- even more symphonic,
- even more epic,

Whyzdom - New Album Cover Art And Release Date Revealed, Song Online

The band has uploaded a new song titled "Atlantis" from their upcoming album to their myspace page. Also the following message has been posted on the Ascendance Records blog:

"Ascendance Records are proud to announce the release of the début album from Whyzdom entitled "From The Brink Of Infinity" on the 21st September.

Go here to see the album cover.

Think of a huge orchestra and a massive symphonic choir intertwined with powerful riffs and enchanting melodies from a clear and passionate feminine voice, and you'll get an idea of what Whyzdom have managed to create. Their classical influences ranging from the romantic to the contemporary period, as well as the appealing melodies that drive the songs, make their sound utterly unmistakeable in an ever growing scene.

The project was founded by the guitarist and orchestrator Vynce Leff in early 2007, already well known in the progressive sphere having produced several successful albums for the British label Cyclops Records. It is fronted by Telya Melane, a singer and actress, fond of metal, classical music and theatre. The other members Regis Morin, Tristan Demurger, Nicolas Chaumeaux and Marc Ruhlmann joined soon after and a first EP '"Daughter Of The Night" was recorded less than 6 months from the band's inception. It got instant acclaim from reviewers and music fans around the world, as well as several awards and plaudits (Best French Band 2008 - Metalsymphonique.com, Best EP - HeavyLaw.com, etc).
Go here for the Metal Storm review of "Daughter Of The Night".

Although still a young band, Whyzdom were invited to play in several festivals in France - most of the time as headliner - and won the Metal Female Voices Fest Contest in Belgium in October 2008. They will play in the 7th edition of this great Festival (17/10/2009) to launch their début album.

Lyrically "From The Brink Of Infinity" is an attempt to explore the feelings of human beings when confronted with the mystery of life and death. The album deals with the fear of crossing the line between the finite lapse of life and the infinity of death. Different characters, having come very close to that line, express themselves in the songs through Telya's voice, to tell their story as a form of catharsis.

It's a very strong album from a new band that has an unmistakable well of experience to draw upon within their ranks. Bombastic, ambitious and epic, Whyzdom have already made their indelible mark on the scene!
