UPON SHADOWS New single " Fatal stigma of the realist "

New single " Fatal stigma of the realist "
Date Release : October 18th./ 2017
Special participation of Matti Torro on drums !
Cover Art : oil painting by Ricardo Arocena !

Mixed and mastered by Mika Pohjola at Soundmix recording studio, Oulu, Finland.

We are very pleased to have the special participation of Matti Torro on drums for the recording of our new single “Fatal stigma of the realist”.
Matti, is an excellent drummer with a wide musical experience, is part of the Finnish band Myon, and has collaborated on countless bands of different styles, what makes his participation in Upon Shadows very interesting from a creative point of view.

Fatal stigma of the realist talks about the inevitability of foreboding.
In an infinite universe, the finitude of our existence becomes present in every moment of our lives, in our projects, in our relationships, in our way of facing life. Talks about the presence of sadness always crouching in our mind, as a result of understanding. Not from a pessimistic point of view but from realism.

About the cover art:
Upon Shadow´s portrait by Ricardo Arocena, (Oil painting, 2017).
The portrait reflects a dark atmosphere, where good and evil complement each other in our faces.
Natalia appears in all her fullness and beauty, while in my face, as in Oscar Wilde's story "The Portrait of Dorian Gray", all the evil remains captive in the portrait.
We believe it is a fascinating interpretation of our essence, that at once embodies the concept of the new simple in a profound and poetic way.


Nuevo simple llamado “Fatal stigma of the realist " (Fatal estigma del realista).
Fecha de lanzamiento: 18 de Octubre/ 2017
Con la participación especial de Matti Torro en batería !
Arte de tapa: pintura al óleo de Ricardo Arocena !

Mezclado y masterizado por Mika Pohjola en Soundmix recording studio, en Oulu, Finlandia.

Estamos muy contentas de contar con la participación especial de Matti Torro en la batería para la grabación de nuestro nuevo simple “Fatal stigma of the realist”.
Matti, es un excelente baterísta con una amplia experiencia musical. Es parte de la banda finesa Myon y ha colaborado en infinidad de bandas de diversos estilos, lo que hace su participación en Upon Shadows muy interesante desde un punto de vista creativo.

“Fatal stigma of the realist " habla de lo inevitable del presentimiento.
En un universo infinito, la finitud de nuestra existencia se hace presente en cada momento de nuestras vidas, en nuestros proyectos, en nuestras relaciones, en nuestra forma de encarar la vida. Habla de la presencia de la tristeza siempre agazapada en nuestra mente, como consecuencia del entendimiento. No desde una visión pesimista sino desde el realismo.

Acerca del arte de tapa:
Es el retrato de Upon Shadows por Ricardo Arocena, (pintura al óleo, 2017).
El retrato refleja una atmósfera oscura, dónde lo bueno y lo malo se complementan en nuestros rostros. Natalia aparece en toda su plenitud y belleza, mientras en mi rostro, como en el cuento de ‎Oscar Wilde "El retrato de Dorian Gray", toda la maldad permanece cautiva en el retrato.
Sentimos que es una interpretación fascinante de nuestra escencia, que a la vez plasma el concepto del nuevo simple de forma profunda y poética.
