Mind Equals Blown is proud to present a new song from progressive metal one-man-band The Restitution, titled “Symbiont”. The project is the creative genius of Michael Wright, who currently calls Kansas City, MO home. Following in the footsteps of Oh, Sleeper, Thrice, and Underoath, Wright mixes progressive elements with post-hardcore and metal. He currently has one full-length album under his belt out in 2013’s Waves and is set to release his second LP, Into the Dark, on June 19. Included in the upcoming record, “Symbiont” is a more melodic offering that highlights Wright’s branching out as a musician.
Here is what Wright has to say about his new album and its unique blend of influences:
“Into the Dark is an exploration of the brokenness of human connection, both personal and general, and its effects on us. Sonically, it is an exploration of where heavy music can go, drawing inspiration from a wide range of music, ranging from Deftones to Radiohead to the Stranger Things soundtrack.”
