Quinta Essentia is imaginative and boundless musically but at the same time holds true to its own sound. The style is best described as dark with hints of death metal, progressive metal (retaining the dark that prog metal often loses), and traditional heavy metal. With a colossal sound that carries reality and imagination to a dark world, Quinta Essentia, displays this epic summoning with their live performance and recording. The debut album "Neutrality For Defined Chaos"(2006) released on Deathgasm Records broke through to begin with the sound that this band brings to the world. The latest album is titled "Archetypal Transformation". The transformation through death, dreams, and meditation is just an introduction to the depth of the concept for "Archetypal Transformation". This album title literally means the original structure of transformation referring to the constant changing of the physical world while attaining the vital equilibrium of the worlds beyond just this life. The band has been on three US tours and played many Festivals (Central Illinois Metalfest, Michigan Death Fest, Chicago Metal Devastation Fest, NY Death In the Forest Fest, Michigan Extreme Metal Fest) throughout it's 5 years of existence. They capture their audiences within a vice of musicianship, composition, lyrical concepts, and performance. The 3rd album is expected to be finished toward the end of November 2010 and is currently being written. Be sure and catch the band on the road for the 2010 Death Metal Darkness Tour with Nominon(Sweden) and Infinitum Obscure(Mexico) in June/July. Quinta Essentia is furious, deep, and experimental extreme metal with the originality, drive, and vitality that it takes to explode in the extreme metal genre.
