South Bohemian instrumental stoner-postrockers Lambda have prepared their second studio. It will be called “Vere Modus” and will be released on February 25. At that time, the band will have performed at the Eurosonic Noorderslag showcase festival, where they will present themselves as one of the three representatives of the Czech Republic. The show, which traditionally takes place in Groningen, the Netherlands, will take place online this year from 19 to 21 January. The group, composed of guitarists Filip Faschingbauer and Tomáš Zimmerman, bassist Václav Ruttkay and drummer Matěj Kräussl, follows up on “Vere Modus” with their debut concept album “Heliopolis” from 2019. Recorded, mixed and mastered at the Golden Hive studio of Michal “Amák” Šťastný se Lambda again publishes a story-free story through multimedia themes through thematic music, design elements and artistic projections. The album features a clip for the song “Terra”. The slowly evolving and graduating piece standing on intertwining guitars and the smoothly but firmly moving rhythms forward is accompanied by an almost abstract video clip. It is composed of macro shots of nature. Real objects, details of leaves, mosses and other natural products change thanks to extreme magnification into colored shapes and a play of light and shapes.
“The album’s songs visually and musically depict elements of nature, such as water, stone, wood, plants, and so on. ‘Terra’ is the first of the Greek deities to name the songs, and the sixth in a row on the record, creating a symbolic divide. The theme of the previous album was the demise of civilization on the planet. as if nothing else existed around it. Because that’s what it’s all about in the story, “ says co-author of the visual, bassist Václav Ruttkay. The band, founded in 2014, which in the past also played with foreign genre colleagues from All Them Witches, Belzebong, Stoned Jesus or 1000mods, planned a smaller club tour in the Czech Republic, Austria and Poland in the spring.
