We are to decide our state of being and make ourselves whole.’ ‘For this song we teamed up with Stef Exelmans to do the mix and master and we really like the result. He did an awesome job in the past recording the latest TURPENTINE VALLEY and BEAR albums and we knew immediately that he was the man we wanted to work with.’ ‘The artwork was made by Kacper Gilka Art who is an amazingly talented illustrator from Poland and we love his work and felt a connection between the song and the art so that was an easy choice.’ -Future releases: -The song SPLIT will be featured on the 21st ed

  Hailing from Edmonton, Canada, metallers Juliet Ruin are sharing their next single and second off their forthcoming EP “Dark Water” scheduled for release in 2021. Entitled "Cosmic Vertigo", the track is an inspiring and fun continuation of the band diving into heavier, djenty melodic metal.

The band adds: "This EP was born of the desire among the members to create a recording with what we consider the true lineup after having a member
