Adelaide’s foremost progressive metal act, Dyssidia will release their new EP Of Delight & Despair on Friday November 4.

The band will hit the road nationally in support of the release, playing multiple shows with Caligula’s Horse, opening for Chaos Divine in Sydney, and for Sweden titans Katatonia in Adelaide. They will also be appearing at Progfest 2016 in Melbourne.

Dyssidia have crafted a unique sound amongst their peers. Infusing bone-crushing riffs with rich harmonies, soaring vocal melodies with brutal growls, and breathtaking soundscapes with intricate rhythms.

This duality of sonics and their mesmerising stage show has led to them to share the stage with the kings of the global progressive scene.

Dyssidia’s vocalist Mitch Brackman speaks Of Delight & Despair:

“When we wrote our third EP, we had grown stronger as a band. This is hopefully evident in the pieces we have created, building them over time, and refining them. With a gentle touch, but a powerful grip, each song has a deep sense of space yet is filled with colourful layers, establishing a juxtaposition – referring to the title of the EP. Hard work and introspection is shown in the musicianship of the four tracks. Love, care and anger influenced a refreshing point of difference, allowing us to serve the sound as best we could.”
