In 2021 Norwegian post-metal collective She Said Destroy returned with their third full length album, their first release following nine long years of silence. Succession was released digitally through Mas-Kina Recordings in October last year to much critical acclaim and fast forward a year this album finally sees its first physical release.
The vinyl version of Succession also contains a new one-song EP, Bleeding Fiction II: Child of Tomorrow, which is a sequel to the band’s 2012 EP Bleeding Fiction.
This EP is scheduled for separate release on all platforms on November 25th , meaning only vinyl purchasers will be able to hear it before it’s out.
She Said Destroy have been a very active live band since their inception in 2000 and have released two full-length albums, Time Like Vines in 2006 (Nocturnal Art Productions) and This City Speaks in Tongues in 2008 (Tabu Recordings) until the year of 2009, when their some of their members moved to other countries. Still, the plan was to keep recording music and in late 2009 and early 2010 they recorded a one-song EP, Bleeding Fiction which was released in 2012 (Mas-Kina Recordings) before they disappeared, hindered by physical distance (Norway and Lithuania), other projects and an undeniable degree of fatigue with the band still trying to make it in the music scene hustle after more than 10 years…
It consists of a standalone epic 14 minutes of heavy duty cinematic beauty. This song is a musical and lyrical sequel to their 2012 EP Bleeding Fiction, but can be seen as the band responding with a more mature voice both in terms of production and mindset to what they launched upon the world ten years ago, resonating with the messages their 2021 full-length Succession conveyed.
The song will be available through all streaming services on November 25. The full album Succession is now finally available on vinyl and unusually this also includes Bleeding Fiction II: Child of Tomorrow – when assembling Succession for a physical release, the band realized the album was too long for a single and too short for a double vinyl, deciding to include the EP on the D-side as a bonus!
