Finland’s new prog outfit Sonus Corona have announced the release date for their sophomore album, Time is Not on Your Side. It will drop on 22 November under Inverse Records and will be the band’s first release with a record label.
Along with the album announcement, Sonus Corona have also revealed the first single, which is for the titular track.
Here’s what vocalist Timo Mustonen has to say about the single:
“Time Is Not On Your Side” is the most definitive song on the new album as a whole, so we figured it makes a great single and a name for the whole album, too. The keyboards, the melody, and rhythmic elements all compliment each other. Harri‘s solo on this moves me every time. It’s also a great song to perform live, we all love it. I rewrote the lyrics in the middle of the night after we had rehearsed the song together. Ari had laid the foundation and melody-rhythm of the words while composing the song, and I turned them around to complement the storyline of the whole album.
The song is about not leaving decisive action on the matter at hand too late. Other people or circumstances might change the game, so one might not have any options left. The protagonist is fighting his own demons, while he knows he should take action instead of focusing inwards. Still, he questions his own motives all the time. His friend comes along to stir things up, and tries to help him see all the options available and give a nudge in the direction the friend thinks is the one for him.”
The band combines intense musical atmospheres accompanied with heavy riffs and strong melodies and relies on strong songwriting. They say they have been heavily influenced by Haken, Toto, Tool, Dream Theater and Leprous.
