Doom supergroup MMXX release new single ‘This Breath Is Not My Breath feat. Mikko Kotamäki (Swallow The Sun)’

Born during the initial lock down of Rome and New York City, and incubated as the seasons passed, doom metal supergroup MMXX is the sound of global pandemic isolation. Joining Candlelight Records for the release, the band have debuted an ethereal new single ‘This Breath Is Not My Breath’ which features guest vocalist Mikko Kotamäki (Swallow The Sun).

On the new single, the band comment: “Essentially ‘This Breath Is Not My Breath’is trying to tell the story of the hellscape that was January to March 2020 from the perspective of someone who first viewed Covid as a disease that is only really an abstraction and has zero impact and poses zero threat. Then gets sick and spreads the disease to everyone around him. The idea in the chorus is that your breath literally and metaphorically is owned by and only shared at the discretion of the disease. Your blood (body) is now a harbinger of other’s suffering.” 

MMXX is Andrea Chiodetti (ex-The Foreshadowing) on guitars and keys, Jesse Haff on drums (Daylight Dies and Gökböri) and Egan O’Rourke on bass (Daylight Dies). Together they channelled inspiration for composition after composition to collaborate with a geographically, culturally, and stylistically diverse collection of celebrated vocalists and musicians from around the world. The end result is a dynamic and diverse sound, simultaneously densely heavy whilst retaining elements of etherealness and light, with each guest vocalist layering in their own perspective to culminate in this eclectic compendium of music reflecting an experience sadly understood by all. 

Appearing on the forthcoming album, guest vocalists include Dan Swanö of Edge of SanityNightingale(Sweden), Yann Ligner of Klone (France), Mick Moss of Antimatter and Sleeping Pulse (UK), Aaron Stainthorpe of My Dying Bride (UK), Mikko Kotamaki of Swallowthe Sun (Finland), Carmelo Orlando of Novembre (Italy), Marco Benevento of TheForeshadowing (Italy), Chris Cannella of Autumns End (USA), and Egan O’Rourke of Daylight Dies (USA).

Full album details will be released shortly. Stay tuned for news.
