OVER YOUR THRESHOLD comments on Facticity and the first single Antic:
“The writing and recording process of ‘Facticity’ has extended over a longer period. Thus, each song imparts different elements and impressions caused by our different musical influences in the course of time. Above all ‘Antic’ is a blasting track with a straight structure ending in a powerful and groovy chorus. The instrumental interlude contrasts the heavy parts with a neoclassical flow within the second half of the song.”
Facticity track listing:
1. Cortical Blindness
2. Contextual Fluctuating
3. Obscure Mind Stasis
4. Self Exhibition
5. Desolation Row
8. Body Part Illusion
OVER YOUR THRESHOLD‘s actual sound is enriched with a great diversity of musical elements. Influenced by different death metal bands (reaching from the 80′s up to now) OVER YOUR THRESHOLD‘s music combines progressive death metal with a bit of thrash and some fusion components.
In 2011, OVER YOUR THRESHOLD entered the Woodshed Studio in Landshut, Germany to record their first full-length album, entitled Facticity. The sound of Facticity is not only more blasting but also more technical, interspersed with energetic death metal riffing as well as melodic acoustic guitars. It’s enriched by brute-force blast beats, thrash metal, jazzy harmonics and the distinct tones of smooth, fretless bass. Furthermore, the band recruited guest musicians Steffen Kummerer (Obscura, Thulcandra) and Jonas Fischer (Hokum, Ex-Obscura) to jazz up their debut album. Facticity was mixed and mastered by V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress).
