Together with Alex Skolnick (Testament), avant-thrash formation Azusa (ex-TDEP, ex-Extol, ex-Sea + Air) present their third single “Detach”. Meshuggah-ish patterns build up and make it a groovy, and heavy hitting prog-metal experience. Once again the contrasting fairy-voice of singer Eleni enchants with its aetheric vibe. Spacey choral elements furthermore make the song a dreamy and mesmerizing experience. “Detach” offers the heaviest chugs, energetic powerplay and builds up to an epic guitar solo by Testament’s Alex Skolnick. This song once again proves, how diverse and aggressive “Loop Of Yesterdays” is going to be!
The band states on the single:
“Like a smokeless fire ripping through dry grass, Detach moves in and out of the heaviest groove Azusa has concocted thus far. The lyrics are a deep dive into how we accept and respond to the downward spirals life inevitably throws us all into. The track builds like a runway cleared for Alex Skolnick's (Testament) maniacal solo to launch the listener into the stratosphere.”
