Finnish progressive metal band Joviac released a new single and music video “Dissemination”. Since their latest single ‘”The Fine Line” the band has now expanded from trio to quintet when Johannes Leipälä (guitar) & Tuomas Honkkila (keyboards) were added to the line-up earlier this summer.
Viljami Wenttola’s comments:
“When the global pandemic began and we all became familiar with the term “lockdown”, I noticed that it wasn’t the disease itself that was most anxiety and fear inducing for me personally, but the amount of misinformation and disinformation surrounding the disease. Fake news was rampant. People used the disease to further their at times questionable motives and armed themselves with arguments that supported only their own nefarious or ignorant ends. Suddenly everyone felt like they knew better than everyone else and trust in their “own research” was stronger than in the scientific community. In many ways the pandemic brought out the darkest sides of humanity. I channelled all of my pandemic anxiety and fear into this song and the result is definitely the heaviest song that we’ve ever released. I even tried out harsh vocals/growling for the first time!”
