GYRE, METALUNDERGROUND.COM PREMIERE NEW TRACK “ALL REVEALING EYE”
‘Second Circle’ EP out July 23 on Monolithic Records
NEW JERSEY – Garden State progressive metal act Gyre has teamed up with MetalUnderground.com to premiere the first track, “All Revealing Eye,” from the band’s upcoming ‘Second Circle’ EP. Stream “All Revealing Eye” online at:http://www.metalunderground.com/news/details.cfm?newsid=93709.
Regarding the track, the group commented, “We want to put out ‘All Revealing Eye’ first because we feel it really showcases the full dynamics of the band. The song moves from groove metal to rock metal to tech metal and is built with bridges along the way. The structure and build-up of the song is something we focus on all the time in this band. The song lyrics deal with the idea that our senses are filters and not receptors. Image yourself hearing all the frequencies that are buzzing around you constantly, usually imperceptible to the human ear. Image all the spectrums of color indistinguishable from the next because your eyes couldn’t filter and make sense of them. Your known world would crumble into senselessness. Our senses have one purpose: to give us a better chance to survive in this world. Not to tell the whole truth of what is actually around you, but to keep you alive.”
‘Second Circle’ will release digitally on July 23 via Monolithic Records.

Recorded with Kevin Antressian at Backroom Studios (Dillinger Escape Plan, The Number 12 Looks Like You, Adrenaline Mob, Foxy Shazam), ‘Second Circle’ is inspired by T.S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland” – feelings of all-destructiveness, delusion, disdain and the understanding that we must consume to produce.
“Listeners can expect progressive metal that does not lose sight of the power of structure and song, and an understanding that it is the connection between our emotions that really get messages across to audiences,” added the band. “As Nietzsche said, ‘In music the passions enjoy themselves.’ Come enjoy our passion with us.”
Gyre will continue to play live throughout the Northeast in support of the new EP.
