[News] Besra published the official video for the first single “Sentinels” taken from upcoming album

Five years following the release of their first studio album “Anhedonia,” Finnish Post-Metal collective Besra are set to return with a new full-length album titled “Transitions,” which is set to be released on September 29, 2023 via Suicide Records.

Recorded at Rødhouse Studio and mixed and mastered by Cult Of Luna‘s Magnus Lindberg, “Transitions” is the result of a long and arduous writing and recording process and sees Besra circling through a vast spectrum of emotions and sonic textures encompassing elements of Post-Rock, Post-Metal and Ambient.

The song is on the heavier side of the album, so we absolutely wanted to make a powerful playing video for it,” said Besra drummer Ville Kaisla. “On the other hand, the lyrical side of ‘Sentinels’ also conveys a strong sense of frustration, making it feel very natural to add a visual narrative to it.

The song itself is a story about the deterioration of human behavior and its negative effects on our environment. This has led to us losing both the connection and appreciation for nature and ourselves. We wanted to contribute our thoughts to maintain this important discussion.

Transitions” revolves around confronting the complexities of human behavior and the tumultuous landscapes we create, he adds about the new album “both in our social behavior and to the world around us. Only change is constant, and often painful – whether it’s about the world situation, human relationships, your daily state of mind, or even our band’s musical development.

The oldest song on the album is over five years old, and the freshest one was completed just a few weeks before recording sessions started. In this sense, the album became an interesting cross-section of the transformation we have gone through ourselves.

Vocalist, Hannes Hietarinta, continues: “At the beginning, the band struggled with the diversity of the songs, but unified long recording sessions and carefully considered song order ultimately created a cohesive yet versatile album. Magnus also did an excellent job with the mixing, adding depth, warmth, and tightness to our sound!
