MAITREYA Shares Black Mirror Inspired Psychedelic Progressive Video “Pilgrim”


Canadian progressive metalcore outfit  Maitreya  will be unleashing their upcoming full-length  “Hyper Reels”  this coming June 2021. The sophomore album boasts a higher degree of musical complexity, filthy breakdowns and a wider range on the vocals ebbing from melodic cleans into sustained growls set to a whirlwind of complicated riffs. The record is a heavily layered listening experience, a cacophony of styles, merging together to create an intense wall of sound that forces you to pay attention to all the subliminal notes and tempo changes. 

To date, they have shared three singles “Summit”, “Departed” and “Catalyst
  and today they are ready to present their next track in preview of the forthcoming album.

Similar to previously revealed singles that were inspired by the well-known TV show and movies,  Pilgrim  came to light after guitarist Mark Wylie's viewing of a Black Mirror episode. 

“Pilgrim has one of the more broad scoped lyrics concepts in the album. It talks about social trends and the kind of philosophy which organizes our society, which came to mind after seeing an episode of Black Mirror. Our society is organized in a way that leads many to feel imprisoned and trapped within the social norms and systemic structures that exist. This song seeks to emulate both the feelings of imprisonment, as well as a more positive vision for our collective societal future."   adds Wylie.

The music video itself is visually progressive and psychedelic with a calming audio experience until towards the end of the track, you get a beautiful djent breakdown along with an unleashed rapture from vocalist  Matt Cutrara .

The music video for   Pilgrim  can be viewed via its premiere on  SpaceUntravel 's YouTube channel  HERE .

“Hyper Reels”  is out on June 25, 2021 and is recommended for fans of The Contortionist, Between the Buried and Me, and Protest the Hero.
