Human emotion is the basis of music throughout history. Songs can be about many different subjects and can be protrayed through many different avenues, but at the end of the day music is about stirring something within another persons consciousness. And its also well known that our emotions can (at times) limit us in our perception because of how we are impacted by them in our decision making and outlook on life. This very concept is what the new album Mercurial by Iris Divine is based around! On Mercurial, Iris Divine explores a sound that can be described as hard-hitting direct progressive metal infused with altrock, grunge, groove metal and a healthy dose of experimentation. Songs have a flow and directness to them that might seem somewhat alien at first, but which will reveal its deeper layers with multiple listens. We are ghosts in the darkness. We are dancers in the light. A mercurial condition. We would die to feel alive.
