WHITE STONES – the brainchild of Opeth bassist Martín Mendéz’ – will release their third studio album, Memoria Viva, on June 28th through Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM).

In advance of the release, today the progressive masters have launched their second single, “D-Generación.” The proceedings begin with high string tones transforming into a rhythmically complex but irresistibly groovy track that culminates to a charmingly lively chorus. With Mendéz’ prominent bass playing building a strong foundation throughout the eclectic song, the intersection highlights WHITE STONES‘ undeniable death metal influences before returning to more musically confident fields and dropping into the initial string sound.

Much like its predecessors, Memoria Viva melts together disparate genres into a unique sonic experience. The instrumental frenzy migrates with delicate intricacies creating a mesmerizing atmosphere captivating any musical connoisseur, with the energetic language of Spanish chosen to round out this multi-faceted endeavor.

“Making an album in Spanish is something that I wanted to do for a long time,” notes Mendéz. “We tried it out with our second record, Dancing Into Oblivion, but at the time we couldn’t convince ourselves that it worked on that album. This time we did, and I feel very proud of the result.”

Adds vocalist Eloi Boucherie, “One of the most notable aspects of this new album, apart from not setting any creative limits musically, has been the challenge of having proposed to sing in the Spanish language. It has been a very exciting experience, and we believe we have found a new way to continue giving something new to the WHITE STONES sound and make this musical proposal something more unique!”

Elements of aggression, that can be heard within Memoria Viva’s instrumental frenzies, manage to co-exist along softer vibes, generating a distinct dynamic among the songs, with interludes allowing listeners to take a breath and appreciate what they’re hearing.

WHITE STONESMemoria Viva was recorded at Farm Of Sounds Studios and mixed and mastered by Gerard Porqueres at Heartwork Recording Studios (both in Barcelona, Spain).

The band’s lineup has been enhanced with the participation of the multi-faceted Joan Carles Marí Tur on drums and guitar solos provided by João Sassetti. Additional guests José Ignacio Lagos (flute) and Joakim Svalberg (keyboards) accentuate the album further. Memoria Viva is a true treat for anyone who enjoys devouring multi-experimental musicianship.
