The band comment; We're pleased to present the second single from our upcoming album - a dark, heavy, yet melodic track entitled The Gutted Stag. This is one of the first songs we wrote for the album so people may recognise it from our live set. We thought this track would lend itself perfectly to a mainly performance based video as there are some cool technical sections that we thought were worth capturing on video! We filmed this video in an empty theatre in Adelaide with Jason Mildwaters who did a great job of capturing our performance and overlaying some additional themes into the video.'
Dyssidia have crafted a unique sound amongst their peers, combining a broad and dynamic range of musicality. Bone-crushing riffs with rich harmonies, soaring vocal melodies with brutal growls and breathtaking soundscapes with intricate rhythms. They are synonymous with blending styles, displaying emotions and bringing a technical edge to their music.
Dyssidia’s guitarist Corey Davis comments on the upcoming album: “We’re stoked with where we’re at with this album. The songwriting is on point, everyone nailed the recording process and the mix is sounding great. We’re feeling tighter than ever with our performance and keen to unleash this new music to the world!”
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, including: Opeth & Katatonia (Sweden), Tesseract & Sikth (UK), Trivium, Fallujah & Between The Buried And Me (USA), Beyond Creation &
Intervals (Canada), The Ocean (Germany), Klone (France), Ne Obliviscaris, Psycroptic,
Be’lakor, Plini, and Voyager. Dyssidia have toured nationally as part of Progfest, as well as with Caligula’s Horse and James Norbert Ivanyi.
With their previous EP's, 2013’s Quiet Waters, 2015’s Children Of Aether And Earth, and 2016’s Of Delight and Despair, Dyssidia’s musical journey has evolved significantly and brought them to their latest release and debut album Costly Signals, an epic hour long album due in 2020. Mixing and Mastering for Costly Signals was handled by V. Santura at Woodshed Studios, the man behind the albums of bands such as Obscura, Alkoloid, Bolzer, Tryptikon and Panzerballet.
