In advance of her upcoming debut album THE DEVIL'S MARK due out later this year, San Francisco-based melodic doom/symphonic metal artist IVA TORIC has shared its emotionally resonant third single, "Finally Today," with a personal lyric/music video as which premiered yesterday, May 7, via Metal Injection .
"Finally Today" was recorded by producer/mixer Jim Kaufman with guest musicians Gregg Cash (Josh Todd and the Conflict, ex-Dorothy) on bass, Kemble Walters (Juliette & The Licks, Aeges) on guitars, Dylan Howard (Aeges) on drums and Sasha Smith on keys. Of the track, IVA shared: "If ever you've experienced such painful longing as being separated from the one you love for what feels like an eternity, and you are counting the days until you are reunited, I hope you'll feel this song resonate deep within your soul."
IVA's music--which Kerrang! lauds as a "syncretic approach to dark culture, mixing the organic darkness of Uada, the psychedelic hues of Soundgarden, and the goth elegance of Maria Brink"--presents an ethereal hue influenced by aspects of modern paganism and witchcraft while her lyrics stem from personal battles with mental health issues, self-esteem and body image issues. "Finally Today" follows two previously released single/videos, "Action Speaks Louder" and "Dark Side Of Me."
