Italian metallers Labyrinth will return with “Welcome to the Absurd Circus” in 2021, promising to deliver more fast power metal songs with big hooks and epic prog infused metal songs. A first taste of the album is presented below, with the video for ‘The Absurd Circus’, their new single.
With the release of “Return to Heaven Denied” in 1998, Labÿrinth had a “classic” album on their hands. More albums followed, but after the release of “Return to Heaven Denied, Pt. 2 – A Midnight Autumn Dream” in 2010 the band went on an indefinite hiatus. In the spring of 2016, the band’s founding members Andrea Cantarelli and Olaf Thorsen received a call from Frontiers, asking them to discuss the possibility of a comeback with singer Roberto Tiranti. They agreed to get back together and round out the line-up with John Macaluso (now replaced by Mattia Peruzzi), Oleg Smirnoff (Vision Divine, Eldritch) on keyboards, and Nik Mazzucconi (Hardline, Edge of Forever) on bass. Their upcoming release sees the band continuing the reinvigoration they showed on 2017’s “Architecture Of A God”.
