schemata theory dry lung release

Bursting onto the UK Metal/prog-Metal scene all guns blazing, energetic new Reading-based six-piece Schemata Theory prepare to unleash their explosive debut album 'Dry Lung Rhetoric' on June 3rd.

The album, which was recorded at the renowned Stakeout Studios and produced by Jason Wilcock (Fightstar, We Are The Ocean, The Ghost of A Thousand), features 11 tracks and includes a guest appearance from Mutiny Within's Chris Clancy on concluding final track, 'The Final Breath'.

Combining many aspects of the metal genre, Dry Lung Rhetoric fuses classic thrash riffing, progressive technical instrumental passages, melodic hooks and soaring choruses, creating a set of songs that are accessible, original and thought provoking.

"A beautiful blend of progressive textures and soaring vocal arrangements." – TheNewReview

"Purely sensational music and experimentation." - Throwing Shapes Media & Reviews

"Dry Lung Rhetoric is a calling card from a band destined for great things, combining melody, aggression, attitude and ambition to an exhilarating effect." –

From the groove-Metal orientated 'Perish Or Prevail' to the piano driven ballad 'Your Belief', through to the more commercially melodic 'Drones' and catchy lead single 'A Complex Slate', the album is an experimental mix of eclectic Metal infusions with the influence of bands such as Dream Theater and Metallica being prominent in the complex song structures, technical riffs and prominent guitar solos.

The message behind the album is an interesting one. "The album's themes communicate acknowledgement of a sleeping world needing to wake up," explains psychology graduate and vocalist Myles Dyer. "With so much evidently in crisis on this planet, the question that must be asked is 'How much longer can we go on turning a blind eye?'"

The band has released an impressive and eye-catching video for lead single 'A Complex Slate', which has already gained in excess of 45,000 views.

The single is available to download now on iTunes.
