Los Angeles-based post-industrial metal band Zeistencroix have created something quite unique compared to anything they’ve done before. Specifically, their new single “Ice Queen”.
Released on July 29, “Ice Queen” can be saved/added there and enjoyed below. The song is personal to the group. It’s emotional and very different from what they’re used to writing, but at the same time, it suits them.
“The song is about a relationship, how you can feel left out because the other partner never fought hard enough, or how you can regret not knowing what’s going on in the relationship,” explains Zeistencroix singer Orlando Draven. “How is someone so cold to leave everything in the world without a care, it’s a love song.”
“Ice Queen” was produced and mixed by Tim Palmer, who commented, “Great to be mixing again for Zeistencroix. Once again the band have delivered some powerful songs that manage to stay melodic, but still feel heavy. than hell. The challenge of the mix was to bring out all the beauty in the music, but to present it as powerfully as possible. I think we succeeded!”
Inspired by a variety of musical genres, including metal, jazz, rock and grunge, Zeistencroix consists of sheet singer Orlando Draven, or OD; drummer Santi Rivillas, or Santi; and guitarist Akopan, or AKO. The trio harmonize to create bubbling titles and waves of vibrations revealing a new era.
Zeistencroix will release their new EP, Cruix-Fixion, on August 26 via Pavement Entertainment. It is recorded and mixed at Stygian Sound with Alex Crescioni and Tim Palmer. For more details, visit Zeistencroix on Facebook.
