‘Séance’ is the 3rd EP of the Cypriot Heavy Rock band Stonus, a fully analogue 18:24 minute EP recorded live at Hot Soap Studios in Larnaca, Cyprus under the supervision of Andreas Mattheou and mastered by George Leodis. The delicate artwork, perfectly translating the visualisation of Séance was crafted by Petros Voulgaris "A séance or seance (/'se?.??ns/; French: [se??s]) is an attempt to communicate with spirits. The word came to be used specifically for a meeting of people who are gathered to receive messages from ghosts or to listen to a spirit medium discourse with or relay messages from spirits." Following the release of their debut album "Aphasia" in early March 2020, Stonus found themselves in the middle of the pandemic, forced to cancel their first European tour - leaving the members isolated in Cyprus, Leeds and London. This was an emotionally heavy period for the band, since they were forced to stay away from the things which kept them together, however these restrictions gave them space to reflect on themselves enabling them to connect and unify with higher energies explored through consciousness, meditation and spiritual melodies. This is where Séance was born, through the ashes of frustration, loneliness and isolation, a silent scream for freedom, a self-realisation of multiple possible realities and an esoteric outbreak leading to a superficial egodeath. In this trip, Stonus take a more experimental approach seeking into tradition, experiencing folk sounds, gypsy sceneries and expose themselves into the darkest side of nature. In some parts they are raw and heavy, while in others lost in a psychedelic trance, filled with roaring basslines, heavy riffs and dreamy melodies, always bloodthirsty for revolution and change. Whether you’re bound by the evil chains of pretentious love, feeling disconnected from your dreams or being chained to the system, Séance is a kind reminder that you are not Alone.
