Bravewords Premiere Sci-Fi Metal RAPHEUMETS WELL's Brutal Dimension In "Unveiling The Sapient"
Hickory, N.C. sci-fi metal band RAPHEUMETS WELL (Ra-few-mets) are welcoming fans to their parallel universe in which their latest album "Enders Door" enriches a voyage of lore and a sound that is a complex mix of classical orchestrations, cosmic synths, and extreme metal.
Their new video "Unveiling The Sapient", exclusively premiered on Bravewords.com, introduces the brutality of a dimension that continues the story line where in the fifth era of the Avomenian Empire, amidst the planetary ruins of Vaath, a rogue traveler would discover an artifact that would forever change their place in the cosmos.
Drummer Joshua "Nassaru" Ward comments:
""Unveiling The Sapient" is the last song on the album, bringing our story to closure. The song itself has a lot of emotions, which depict the events of our "Enders Door" story (which you can check out in our new visual book). We also have Brian Kingsland from Nile and Enthean performing an absolutely awesome guitar solo at the end. We hope everyone enjoys the work involved and the journey we wrote. "

Inspired by the fictitious universe of Sovael, RAPHEUMETS WELL is the name coined to the conscious deity who oversees the anastomosis of the multiverse, the master of portals and inter-dimensional travel. Being personified as a trickster, Rapheumet often creates chaos for unsuspecting voyagers. The word “Well” refers to the gravity wells, which like black holes, are catalyst of change and gateways between the cosmic plains.
Formed in 2008, 2011 and 2012 saw their first two demos followed by their first self release full length ‘Dimensions’ unleashed in 2014 that progressively told a larger story portrayed in a complex saga of Atai (ancient architects) who aid in the propagation of sentient life throughout the multi-verse. In 2016, they released their highly praised sophomore album 'The Exile' via Test Your Metal Records.
Now in 2017, from the birth of organic matter to great wars that tear the fabric of space/time, the story of RAPHEUMETS WELL's music serves to immerse you into a world of oddities once again with the band’s third release ‘Enders Door’ due out on May 26th via Test Your Metal Records.

"Hickory, NC’s Rapheumets Well(pronounced Ra-few-mets) is a band heavily steeped in science fiction and fantasy. And when I say heavily, I mean HEAVILY. They slam dunk their lushly orchestral and luxurious symphonic melodic blackened death metal into a fantastical and fantastically creative and complex world that I don’t even want to embarrass myself trying to explain. But, you gotta give mad ol’ props to any band willing to dive head first into something as elaborately conceptual as this costumed and inventive septet have from the off." - Decibel Magazine
"The best symphonic metal albums understand the balance between the synths and the rest of the band, and Enders Door possesses that necessary element. Enders Door can also take you on a journey, offering a fantastic trip into unknown lands, which helps keep you on your toes. Most importantly, it lives up to the potential hinted at with The Exile, and should be an easy sell for fans of this style." - Dead Rhetoric
"The sense of epic that exists throughout Enders Door hits instantly with its mix of heavy riffs, death metal vocals, classical orchestrations & synth effects." - Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
"As you’re about to find out, this first song from the new album combines turbocharged death metal vehemence with sweeping orchestral melodies, interweaving blazing drumwork and rapid-fire riffing with cosmic synthesizer vistas and fluid soloing, vicious growls and hair-raising shrieks with a vaulting clean-sung passage that coincides with the protagonist’s decision to end his apathy." - No Clean Singing
"this album is chock-full of powerful, aggressive and moving sounds that show the diversity and complexity of the Symphonic Metal genre." - 925 Rebellion
"Enders Door – a humongous piece of synth driven, border line operatic, epic death/black metal.... To sum this album up, it is necessary to underline two things: Enders Door is massive, balls to the wall, in a sense very American in the old-school sense of bigger-better. It does not let up for a moment. It is also, for all its dramatic, heavy and violent darkness somehow rather filled with joy. For something so complex and bulked-up, there is a real sense of fun emanating from every track. Whether delivering rabid tech-death riffs over hyper fast blast beats, or introducing female vocals over multiple layers of synthesizers, strings and double kick drums, Rapheumets Well keeps it intense and inspired." - Archaic Triad
