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!

Your right, suspect name, but what a track Atlantis is.

Sounds like a cross between early Within Temptation, Epica and After Forever. Massive production, vocals still a bit raw to trouble Floor.
Will definately look in to this, has real potential.

Their first EP "Daughter Of The Night" was not extremely brilliant by its originality, but it was really really great, showing the the big potential of the band in term of songwriting and performance. I have huge expectations about their new stuff and I'm looking forward to listen to the whole album.

Just got the album this morning, very impressed. It has the feel that the female fronted goth scene has been moving away from. Heavy, bombastic, orchestral, complex and melodic, no pop vocals in sight.
Now After Forever is gone Whyzdom will take their crown.
