Rising British heavy metal outfit Internal Conflict have announced their sophomore studio album 'A P O R I A' will be released on July 9th via PHD.

A P O R I A [ uh-pawr-ee-uh, uh-pohr- ] "An irresolvable internal contradiction or logical disjunction in a text, argument, or theory or the expression of doubt." Album artwork by Dominic Sohor Design.

Mixed and mastered by Neil Hudson (Krysthla) at Initiate Audio & Media Studios in Northampton, the pairing of the band and acclaimed producer has resulted in Internal Conflict releasing their finest work to date.

The news of ‘A P O R I A’ follows the Leicester five piece metaller’s 2018 ‘Nothing Is Lost’ ep and continues their progressive creativity and innovative take on heavy metal. Part brutal, part melodic, sonically the new songs deliver a deep exploration of modern metal whilst the lyrical themes reflect on society and what it is to be human in deeply challenging times.

“The name ‘A P O R I A’ initially spoke of the difficult times we have gone through personally in the last few years, in and outside of the band”, explains frontman Adam Kyle. ” From family breakdowns, to mental health struggles, parenthood, life / work balance, and what it means to be a band in an age of digital revolution; all is laid bare. However, with the pandemic and growing cultural divisions, we put our feelings and thoughts into our music as a way to discuss where we, the human race, are right now. Ultimately, we are asking how to achieve happiness in a world that at times feels hopeless and filled with addiction, media influence, wealth or lack thereof, hate, and narcissism.”

Whilst dark in their lyrical approach, the tracks featured on the new album blend into an overall arc that offers a shining light to listeners. “It’s ok to not be ok, but we want to get better, and we want to help others if we can. This is where our lyrics live, amongst the hustle and bustle of life. We are not a political band, we but are political people. We hurt, we love, and we feel everything around us and channel it into our music”, concludes Kyle.

The album’s stunning artwork was designed by Dominic Sohor (Raging Speedhorn).
