After the band just recently shared a first song, “Rise Of The Phoenix,” Immortal Guardian published a music video for their album title track! From a lyrical perspective, the song “expresses a poignant commentary on the modern age’s challenges, where our emotions are dulled by the constant presence of screens and technology. It questions our current state, yearning for a return to simpler times when dreams and peace were paramount,” the band reveals. “The repeated call to go back to that idyllic era underscores the desire for unity and conquering divisions in a world marked by mistrust and conflict. The lyrics encourage us to reflect on the consequences of our digital age and long for a return to a more genuine, harmonious existence.

We definitely took a new direction trying new grooves and riffs that we have never jammed before together. At the same time, after jamming for dozens of times together, we learned that we have a signature sound.”

With “Unite And Conquer,” Immortal Guardian took new direction with their writing process and overall sound on the album. While trying new things, they also kept a taste of their classic sound in the process. This opus showcases a revolutionary sound, fusing heavier and more melodic elements into their “Super Metal” tapestry. Immortal Guardian‘s signature “Super Metal” sound is an exploration of the Metal spectrum, seamlessly blending elements of Progressive, Power, Tech-Death and Symphonic Shred.

During the making of this album, all band members were going through some crazy experiences in their lives, that reflects in the music, according to Gabriel Guardian: “Like we did during our ‘Psychosomatic’ album, we were writing these songs in real-time as we lived through these major events in the world and in our personal lives”, he states.

“Unite And Conquer” lyrically traverses a multifaceted emotional journey from introspection and self-discovery that passionately calls for unity and change. Vocalist Carlos Zema adds: “The poetic verses entwine seamlessly with the captivating melodies, delivering a musical narrative that resonates with the listener on a profound level, leaving an indelible mark on the heart and soul. With a simple message: This is the time to ‘Unite and Conquer’.”

The album was mixed and mastered by Joshua Lopez at Widowmaker Studios, and features guest appearances by Vicky Psarakis (The Agonist) and Primal Fear’s Ralf Scheepers. The artwork was created by Masiha Fattahi.
