Brazilian Doom Metal Legends THE CROSS Unveil New EP as a Tribute to Late Drummer
THE CROSS, Brazil’s renowned purveyors of dark and melancholic soundscapes, return with their latest musical offering, a 3-track EP titled “Requiescit in Pace Frater Noster”. The band’s new EP is a powerful, and emotional, follow-up to their critically acclaimed album, “Act II: Walls of the Forgotten”, released in May 2022, and stands as a poignant tribute to their beloved drummer Louis, who tragically passed away shortly after the album’s release.
With an unwavering commitment to their signature doom metal sound, THE CROSS have crafted new music that captivates listeners with a hauntingly beautiful exploration of grief, loss, and the eternal struggle of the human spirit. Through their emotionally charged compositions, the band channels their collective pain into a sonic journey that resonates deep within the souls of their audience.
Drawing from their extensive musical repertoire and guided by their profound creativity, THE CROSS conjure a sonic tapestry that evokes both sorrow and resilience. Each track on the EP bears testament to the band’s extraordinary musicianship and serves as a fitting homage to their departed comrade.
“Requiescit in Pace Frater Noster” will be available on all major streaming platforms on July 7th 2023, with all Bandcamp orders also receiving an accompanying digital booklet.
