Imminence Records’ Californian metal outfit Eyes Of Mara has announced that they will release their debut self-titled album October 28th. A year removed from their original Akkadia release, the band’s first full length shows ten tracks of a progressive new sound direction for Eyes Of Mara. Vocalist Tyler Trainer had this to say on the new direction, “With this record, we took a step back and really looked at the music we enjoy listening to and playing. We’ve all moved forward musically and wanted to bring all of our influences together to make something we thought was more true to us.”
In addition to announcing the release date for their full length, the band has also released the first single from the album on YouTube, entitled “Pain And Fear”. The track is the fourth track on the album and Tyler commented, “This song was the ideal choice for a lead single. It embodies most of the variation in the album and captures the intensity the rest of the record brings.” While the single showcases most of the new influences added to the band’s sound, listeners can be sure to be kept on their toes while listening to all ten tracks.
About Eyes Of Mara:
In 2010, Eyes Of Mara came together as five musicians with a passion to write, record and perform heavy music. Taking their name from a Buddhist demon who is the embodiment of impulse and death, the name is fitting as their sound embraces the darker side of music. Eyes Of Mara draws their inspiration from the malevolence of mankind. Their songs hit on a wide variety of issues, including how humans treat each other and the decline of national politics. The band self released their debut EP Akkadia back at the end of 2013, and have no intention of stopping there. Having just signed with Imminence Records, the band plans to continue to raise their stock. Having worked tirelessly to bring their fans the best they have to offer, they strive for nothing short of perfection. They will utilize any opportunity to give their fans the hard hitting songs they desire in the form of new music, as well as live and in person when they are on tour. Eyes Of Mara breaks the mold as a major contender in today’s metal scene.
