Matyascorvinus, a name that resonates with fans of Musosoup, is back with a more substantial release, “Across The Acheron.” This EP marks a significant step in Matyascorvinus’ journey, following the success of three previous singles – “In Solitude,” “Tree Of Life,” and “Her Shadow In The Flame.” These singles garnered overwhelming positivity, extensive features, and secured spots on over a hundred playlists.
Matyascorvinus, known for crafting music born from profound emotions, often touching on the hardships of life and elements of Gothic imagery, presents a new EP that continues this tradition. “Across The Acheron” delves into a period of severe burnout that profoundly affected Matyascorvinus’ life, pausing it for an extended duration. This challenging phase added an extra layer of complexity to the songwriting, extending over months during recording and mixing. However, the result is a success story, a testament to human resilience and recovery. The EP is further enriched by a background story, inspired by the 1897 expedition to Antarctica, known as the voyage of Belgica. This expedition was marked by extreme bravery, accompanied by elements of madness. The age of sail ships and early polar explorations serves as a backdrop for this new Matyascorvinus creation, infusing it with a sense of horror and hardship, creating a miniature soundtrack for this historic journey.
“Across The Acheron” also serves as an allegory for the end of life, a reminder of the limits we all face – a “Memento mori,” as the old artists used to say. However, the EP’s tone is far from negative; it is a story of recovery and a celebration of life. Just as the Belgica’s journey was completed despite immense suffering and loss, Matyascorvinus’ EP embarks on a journey from darkness to light. Matyas’ journey into music began with the ukulele, an instrument that captured his heart over six years ago. The ukulele’s unique expressiveness intrigued him, leading to a period of experimentation and a reinvention of classical pieces by composers like Bach. This eventually led him to the guitar, where he initially played it as an extended ukulele. These early experiences paved the way for Matyas’ journey as Matyascorvinus. While classical guitar training from decades ago provided a foundation, Matyas followed his intuition, ignoring traditional music theory, and creating music guided by the pursuit of beauty, serenity, and simplicity. His compositions often carry an undercurrent of sorrow, drawing from the realms of death metal and Gothic imagery.Matyas has achieved recognition and success in his musical endeavors, producing numerous recordings that are available on major streaming platforms. With his latest EP, “Across The Acheron,” Matyascorvinus continues to captivate listeners, offering a unique blend of emotions, darkness, and light, drawing inspiration from both the beauty and the enigmatic aspects of life and nature.
