The underground throne holders of Finnish metal, Medeia has stuck to one clear objective since its founding in 2002: creating a fresh, brutal sound rich in content and uncompromising in nature. Solely positive reviews for their gut wrenching discography of four full-length albums and an two Eps stand as a loud testament to the success of that mission.Medeia has made a point of bringing their trademark jaw-dropping energy to audiences across Europe, touring relentlessly and playing shows alongside such notable acts as Children Of Bodom, Ozzy Osbourne, As I Lay Dying, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Between the Buried and Me, Entombed, Animals as Leaders, Decapitated, Raised Fist, Terror and Insomnium.
In 2015 Medeia began making grand plans for an album that would be known as their crown jewel. The new album would thematically be the prologue to Medeia’s album trilogy (Cult, Abandon All, Iconoclast), while musically displaying everything that the band has to offer. The record turned out so ambitious that it kept the band in the studio for nearly two years, pushing the main song writer Samuli Peltola to his limits. Now the wait is over, and Medeia is ready to proudly present their own altered Genesis: Xenosis.
The first taster from the new album comes in the form of ”Phenomenon”, now out world wide in digital services and as a music video. The single is perfect introduction to the new evolution of the band and the pitch black and heavily orchestrated world of ”Xenosis”. The album will be released January 18th 2019(CD, LP, Digital) by the bands new label home Playground Music.
