Philippines-based label Tower of Doom Music have signed progressive metal band Orca and released the band’s debut single ‘Sunset Limited’ on their label.
According to the label, “Progressive metal quintet ORCA draws eclectic and exceptionally unique vocal and instrumental deliveries. The birth of their respective EPs ‘Creation’ (2015), and ‘Engender’ (2018) paved the way for putting the band into the spotlight in the local Filipino heavy music scene and received widespread acclaim. ORCA’s full-length studio record ‘The Invitation’ (2021) encapsulated the band’s evolution, taking on various dynamics in their sound and fusing complex, technical instrumentation with unorthodox, hypnotic harmonies.
Regarding the new single, Zoren the vocalist of the band states, “The track is based on contrasting ideologies faced by modern man, i.e., atheism and firm belief in God. Between believer and non-believer, between optimism and pessimism, and between hope and despair.”
