Second Brain – “The Mind Awakes”

Second Brain – The Mind Awakes
20 January 2020

With a background ranging from thrash metal to death metal and classical music, Second Brain’s founding members Agravain (vocals, guitar, programming) and Lala Gabarth (vocals, cello, synth) independently released their first full-length album, Synthesis, in May 2014. Following positive feedback both in Italy and abroad, the then duo went on to recruit bassist Anagoor, guitarist Dagonus and live drummer Dominum. After a few rounds of gigs in Italy in 2016 and 2017, Second Brain entered the studio in 2018 to record their second album, “The Mind Awakes”. On it, the Rome-based band build on the eclectic yet classically powerful approach of their first release to create a heavier and more intense style. Lyrically, the new album is loosely themed around the concept of ‘awakening’ from misperceptions and letting go of the shackles of superstition and dogmas. “The Mind Awakes features” artwork by Costin Chioreanu and will be released on 24 January 2020.
