Composer & lyricist Sami Selkäinaho comments:
“The second single from Opus Limbonica, “A Window to My Dreams”, is the mid-point of the album. The song is dark and hateful, yet driven by melody. It contains some of the trickiest leadworks in all of Opus Limbonica.
Containing a lot of different passages, the song is glued together by firey guitar and synth leadwork and the chorus sections. Tempowise, the song represents the more mid-tempo material of the album but still has the characteristic neoclassical elements of the album.
“A Window to My Dreams” is inspired by the earlier works of Symphony X, Children of Bodom and The Kovenant and puts the emphasis on melodic riffs and especially neoclassical leads.”
Founded in 2017, Clamoris set out to bring to life their vision of neoclassically inspired extreme metal.
Originally planned as a two-man studio project formed by keyboardist/composer Sami Selkäinaho and vocalist/bassist Niko Peräkorpi, but feeling that due to the demanding nature of the songs a full band effort would be highly beneficial. They introduced drummer Tom Israels and guitarists Joonas Kinnari & Samuli Kaakinen to the music who, upon hearing the material, agreed to join the band.
After working out the songs for the album, rehearsing them for a while and demoing one of them on the latter half of 2018 the band felt they were ready to start working on recording the debut album, named “Opus Limbonica”, which was finalized and ready for release in 2022.
