In advance of her upcoming debut album THE DEVIL’S MARK due out later this year, San Francisco-based melodic doom/symphonic metal artist IVA TORIC has shared its emotionally resonant third single, “Finally Today,” with a personal lyric/music video as which premiered yesterday, May 7, via Metal Injection as seen below.  

Finally Today” was recorded by producer/mixer Jim Kaufman with guest musicians Gregg Cash (Josh Todd and the Conflict, ex-Dorothy) on bass, Kemble Walters (Juliette & The Licks, Aeges) on guitars, Dylan Howard (Aeges) on drums and Sasha Smith on keys.

Of the track, IVA shared: “If ever you’ve experienced such painful longing as being separated from the one you love for what feels like an eternity, and you are counting the days until you are reunited, I hope you’ll feel this song resonate deep within your soul“.

IVA‘s music–which Kerrang! lauds as a “syncretic approach to dark culture, mixing the organic darkness of Uada, the psychedelic hues of Soundgarden, and the goth elegance of Maria Brink”–presents an ethereal hue influenced by aspects of modern paganism and witchcraft while her lyrics stem from personal battles with mental health issues, self-esteem and body image issues. “Finally Today” follows two previously released single/videos, “Action Speaks Louder” and “Dark Side Of Me.”
