Swiss based melodic death metal quartet Ophellia have released their destructive new EP, ‘Fight For Us’.
“Fight for Us” is intended to encourage people to let go of everyday life through music, to immerse themselves and simply enjoy the concert. It’s also a call to the metal community to support the smaller bands as well, presented with exaggerated, figurative but not literal language.
“Speak Words of Destruction” is a processing of the partial separation, hostility and dishonesty of humanity and the desire to talk more and more openly with each other, to sort out problems and live more harmoniously together instead of relationships suddenly collapsing on you. It’s the realization that most problems arise from poor, or lack of communication.
“Ophelia’s Eye” is a reference to our band name and the narrative of how we imagine Ophelia as a band: Mystical, attractive but also vicious and powerful. It makes you forget everything, both your enemies but also your friends and you drift more and more on a dark path.
From the band: “We have chosen the three songs we “grew up” together with. These songs were put together at the very beginning after we had our complete line-up. Therefore they’ve grown close to our hearts. We have also chosen them to give the listeners a glimpse on what they can expect from future songs without giving away too much from the upcoming album, which we will record at the end of October, and the beginning of November.”
