After being Opening Act of the legendary band IRON MAIDEN in the year 2008, Introspecci?n dedicated its efforts on producing the piece that was being conceived since the release of their first album Revealed. The need of showing to the world a work that would leave a footprint conceptually, lirically and musically motivated the colombian guys to bring it all in the development of the project that now they feel represents them as and authentic, ambicious and perfeccionist band.
10 tracks in English and one in Spanish integrate this LP with ambiences that oscillate from Thrash Metal to MetalCore, from Heavy Virtuoso to Dark Progressive, from American Folk to European Epic, from the Andina music to Llanera, all these styles appearing and blending in a trip filled of fury, passion and nostalgia. Big example of this is the song Seventh Day, that being the last one to be composed and having a duration of 10 minutes, it reflects all the elements of the album and the intention of the band of Transcending.
In difference to Revealed, TRANSCENDING is a work in which all the members of Introspecci?n took a role in the lyrical and musical composition, in the arranging of their own parts and in the sonic and visual concept, songs with dropped tunings in the guitar, the inclusion of instruments such as Vocoder, 5 strings bass, Acoustic Guitar, Choral Arrangements not only enrich the Sonic Spectrum of this work, it makes it more blunt.
Being produced by C?sar Restrepo and Victor Santaf?, the human talent behind this CD include the experienced Germ?n Villacorta(Ozzy Osbourne, Rolling Stones, Zack Wilde) who mixed and masterized Transcending in the LimaAV 32 Studios in California(USA) and the photographer and designer Adri?n Prada, famous for becoming the Gur? of Colombian concerts with his page www.colombialive.com who did the work of photography, visual concept and design of the album.
This is the way TRANSCENDING, in all its aspects was conceived to push every one of its listeners to not conforming with repeating what's already done, to overpower materialism and all those things that make society superficial and little dynamic, in confronting adversity and learning of it, in looking out to Transcend every second of our lives.
