BIPOLAR ARCHITECTURE Unveils Video for Thunderous New Single, ‘Metaphysicize’

The progressive, post-metal four-piece Bipolar Architecture have announced their forthcoming second album, ‘Metaphysicize’, set for release on 2nd of February 2024 via Pelagic Records.

The band have also released a blistering, psychedelic video for the album’s lead single ‘Death of The Architect’, which serves as a bracing statement of intent from the international outfit who, currently based in Istanbul and Berlin, have consistently pushed at the boundaries of contemporary metal.

Hurtling into life in 2020, Bipolar Architecture is a project born from the smouldering ashes of stalwart death metal group Heretic Soul. Having retained all the nihilistic fury of their former outfit, Bipolar Architecture introduced the forward-thinking ferocity of djent and hardcore as well as the atmospheric dynamism of post-rock and shoegaze ambience, before unleashing this searing new sound on their 2022 debut full-length, ‘Depressionland’, which quickly turned head and left ears ringing.

A raw and passionate lament for frontman, guitarist and principal songwriter Sarp Keski’s father, ‘Death of The Architect’ also considers the uncertainty of life after loss and the range of intense emotion expressed throughout is an intriguing glimpse into the existentialist, introspective themes at the heart of ‘Metaphysicize’.

 Resounding with a musical maturity and patience testament to experience gained and lessons learned, whilst still shaking with all the full-throttle, apocalyptic indignation of the band’s blackened metal origins, ‘Metaphysicize’ is also Bipolar Architecture’s first work to feature lyrics in Keski’s native Turkish; rending the album a perfect embodiment of the band’s dichotic balance of culture, genre, calm and chaos.

By refusing to rest on their laurels or rely on the comfortable confines of genre, Bipolar Architecture leave their shape unfixed and their future ripe with potential; because life at the edge of extreme is so much better without labels.

Sarp Keski on ‘Metaphysicize’:

“‘Metaphysicize’ was the first song written for the album and served as a source of inspiration for the songs that follow. The track’s different angles, reflected in Fatih’s jazz-influenced drumming, made writing the whole album an eye-opening experience for us all.The first song of the album and also its namesake, ‘Metaphysicize’ continues the introspective work of our previous album, ‘Depressionland’. However, this time we’re taking control of these dark emotions and exploring the idea of them as cosmic signs of our collective inter-being.The video for ‘Metaphysicize’ sees three characters take destiny in their hands as their mobile phones become compasses, helping them find inner balance in a world intent on pulling our attention away from ourselves.”
