KAYAS Unleash New Single "Terminus"; Debut Album To Arrive In August

Today, Kayas has unleashed another new single taken from their forthcoming album, By The Moon And The Stars. On "Terminus", the band showcases their strikingly polished, unique brand of melodic death metal.

With a sonic landscape that is distinctly Kayas, but pleasantly reminiscent of bands like Be'lakor, Insomnium, and other big players in the melodeath scene, the aptly titled new single "captures the overwhelming loss brought by the destruction of our natural world,” the band says.

Listen to the single here, and below:

By The Moon And The Stars will see its worldwide release on August 2. Pre-order here, and pre-save here.

Listeners are taken on a journey through themes of nature, human existence, and fantasy, delivered with compelling melodies and lucid riffs that will make their hearts soar over ancient forests and still valleys.
