Given the members’ diverse musical backgrounds, the quintet experiment with a number of genres on their new project. ‘Past Is Prologue’ also explores a “central, story-like narrative” through its blistering 23-minute runtime, according to a press release.
‘Past Is Prologue’ opens with a short instrumental intro that blends together solemn keys, and a wall of distortion, before bleeding into ‘The Waltz Of Fate’ and ‘The Prodigal Son’. ‘The Tyrant’ starts off with a mellow acoustic guitar arrangement, before quickly returning to its mix of ear-piercing screams, frenetic guitar licks and pounding drums.
Naedr’s debut album was initially targeted for release in early 2020, but was delayed due to undisclosed reasons.
“We spent the last few months tying up loose ends and getting ready for this moment,” the band wrote earlier on Facebook.
