Frayle – 1692

With ‘1692’, Frayle pushes the immense intensity and gorgeous ache of its unique sound and style through to uncompromising new plateaus. The group’s quantum weight, hypnotic rhythms, dark beds of sound, and the arcane female power of Gwyn Strang have coalesced into a sonic thumbprint both distinct and beguiling. As Frayle’s music inhales and exhales, building into atmospheric, chilly epics, Gwyn’s lyrics explore her own personality and experiences, referencing and representing her frustrations growing up in a strict Roman Catholic family, as well as alchemical ideals such as changing negatives to positives, or ascending from one level of understanding to another. While there is much darkness on the record, it’s also contrasted superbly with beauty, both fragile and fierce, in a way that feels weightless rather than plummeting, as if release truly is a possibility.

 “‘1692’, as the title of our album, references those who have been singled out and persecuted for their beliefs,” says Strang. ““We strive to create a safe haven. A place to be vulnerable amongst the chaos.”

The two soon started talking to Frontiers about the concept of working on new music together, which was met with great enthusiasm from the label. Aldo submitted to Zak some song ideas which were reminiscent of the classic Savatage sound of records such as “Edge Of Thorns” and “Gutter Ballet”. The two felt the magic was there, so no time was wasted in getting together to craft an absolutely striking metal album.
