Wovenwar’s Nick Hipa and Sylosis’ Josh Middleton Made a Lyric Video for Conspectus’ “Separated”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Who the heck are Conspectus? I’d never heard of them before about ten minutes ago, but they’ve either got friends in high places or a budget with to work, because their debut, seven-track EP, A Clearer View, features artwork by Sylosis guitarist/vocalist Josh Middleton… and that artwork has been used by Wovenwar/ex-As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa to make a lyric video for the band’s song “Separated.” You can view that lyric video below…

…but, unfortunately, the music isn’t all that great. It’s not all that bad, either, but it doesn’t really bring anything new to the table — Sylosis and As I Lay Dying have both done better with a similar style of material. Still, Conspectus might have been a stronger candidate for AP‘s “Future of Metalcore” list than any of the bands that actually made the cut (including Wovenwar, who I maintain aren’t metalcore).

A Clearer View is out now. You can listen to the whole EP below via Spotify.
