Hungarian black metal solo project Sír by mastermind Leiru has recently signed to Sun & Moon Records for the release of debut album, »Your Star Will Collapse«, which will see the light on March 10th, 2023.
Sír already released two singles from the forthcoming debut album – »Devour« and »Machine / Pleasure« – that can be checked below!
01. Cryptic Affinity
02. Your Star Will Collapse
04. Machine Pleasure
05. Song Of Amergin Part 2
06. Weak And Arrogant
A full-length album with epic doom moments, desperate rock and some beloved “usual suspects” black metal formulas.
Sír has equivocal meaning in Hungarian. The most obvious one is “grave”, but Sír also means “crying”. Together they represent grief, loss of a loved one, it is a deep emotional state. It has nothing to do with the undead or other fantasy themes, it’s all about living people and their struggles.
Sír was founded at the end of summer 2020 as a medical treatment for the author. In the beginning there was only a conception: to express the futility of life and creation while admiring the beauty of nature’s destructive powers. These are common themes in metal lyrics and the author admittedly doesn’t want to invent anything new, but those feelings come from a very profound mental state and the final result was like a cold shower to him. Healing through self caused suffering.
»The Cosmic Grave« demo was released in November 2020 by Mirgilus Siculorum. After that the music evolved. You can find various genres on the full-length album, no fan service, but the joy of music.
»Your Star Will Collapse« to be out on digipak CD on March 10, 2023 via Sun & Moon Records.
