US Metal band TRAGEDY MASK recently released their debut album “Theatrum Tragoedia“, featuring 7-tracks performed by the only member J. Ryan Seaba.
The full album can be streamed on the Bandcamp player below:
TRAGEDY MASK plays a stylistically unique brand of Groove Metal which is complex and progressive without being pretentious or inaccessible, with chaotic dynamic shifts, vocal styles ranging from guttural growls to soaring soprano cleans, and elements of Melodic Death Metal and classic Groove Metal.
A lyric video for the track “Sisyphus” was also made and can be seen below:
Though the compositions are not tailored to one specific sub-genre of metal—rather focusing on visceral, emotive heaviness and melodic progression—some reviewers have regarded TRAGEDY MASK as being an innovator in a movement of Post-Groove.
TRAGEDY MASK is a solo project which was started in 2019 by J. Ryan Seaba, based in Tiffin, Iowa, USA.
