Tech metal connoisseurs Exotopia have returned with their latest fantasy opus, "The Emancipation Of Dissonance." Five months in the making, Exotopia has created their first piece of music since the release of their 2014 EP "Constant Digression." The song explores technical death metal, symphonic metal, and mathcore, just to name a few. Exotopia has always attempted to create an experience when listening to their music and they believe it has been done with this new track.


So what's it say?

Amun Ra, Amun Dei,

It speaks of the night and of the day.

Seui Ahara maktubs, Imastsiei baiá

Imanti insupi insitseui...Iatuei, iatuei, iatuei!


You must not read from the book!

Hey, Winston! Pedal faster!

I love the whole sand wall trick. It was beautiful. Bastard.
