“Osada Vida, one of the most interesting Polish bands on the rock/metal scene, still work on their fifth studio album. Their material entitled “The After-Effect” is scheduled for release on November, 3rd.
Their highly acclaimed previous album “Particles” made the band work even harder on the follow-up material. In the meantime, the band have undergone a few line-up changes: Bartek Bereska (guitar) was replaced by Janek Mitoraj and drummer Adam Podzimski – by Marek Romanowski.
Rafał Paluszek, band’s keyboardist comments: “Our new album, just like it was with ‘Particles’, is not a concept album. We abandoned that as a creative method. And when we came up with the title ‘The After-Effect’, it was partly as a joke. An after-effect is a consequence, the result of all that’s going on in our lives. Every album sums up a certain episode in your life. It crowns a certain creative process, which is, after all, brought about by something, and which is a lasting phenomenon. We experience certain things, every event has some influence on what we do. Why shouldn’t that apply to the music we create? In a relatively short period of time, 2/5 of Osada Vida’s lineup has changed. Such changes are like a tsunami – there are losses, but there’s also a reason to build something new, something we wouldn’t dare to build back in the untroubled days. We don’t know what effects today’s events will have. Looking at it from a mathematical perspective, there’s an infinite number of paths, each branching out into an infinite number of paths as well, and so on. That’s what ‘The Affter-Effect’ is.”

In 2012 the band debuted in a new improved line-up – they have added a new vocalist Marek Majewski, previously known from the band Acute Mind. In Autumn 2013 the band replaced guitarist Bartek Bereska with young and talented musician – Jan Mitoraj. In Summer 2014 drummer Adam Podzimski left the band and his place was taken by Marek Romanowski.
