Showcasing Reliqa‘s first new music since the release of their 2022 EP, I Don’t Know What I Am, Terminal is a captivating blend of ferocity and glimmering modernity, with sharpened riffs, silken electronics and emphatic vocals.

An immersive and exhilarating outing, Terminal marks an exciting new chapter for the Sydney group as they venture into 2024, with an equally sleek music video also out today accompanying the new track.

Speaking on conjuring their latest release, the band share: “This process was very sporadic/stream-of-consciousness. Anything we were listening to, watching, reading or experiencing at the time, we took it and ran with it. It was very human in that way. Our songwriting style took a massive turn early last year as we switched from writing in a more remote, ‘production-line’ workflow to forcing ourselves to start from scratch, together, in the same room.”

Defying genre labels and harnessing their potent sonic identity in the heavy music landscape over the years, Reliqa have evolved from being “ones to watch” into an act destined for genuine greatness.

Whether dazzling onstage supporting the likes of Spiritbox, Sevendust, BABYMETAL and Northlane, whipping festival crowds into a frenzy or headlining their own shows, Reliqa never cease to enamour in a live setting alongside multiple singles commanding over 2 million individual streams, including Doomed and Mr. Magic.

Most recently flexing their nuanced take on heavy modernity with their 2022 EP I Don’t Know What I Am, Reliqa brandished dark grooves, layered soundscapes, electronic flourishes and more. I Don’t Know What I Am may have initially stemmed from the group themselves and the broader music industry being unable to categorise Reliqa’s unique and immersive stylings; but ultimately, it’s the group’s bold and boundless sense of self that radically sets Reliqa apart from your standard heavy act.

Armed with their latest single, Reliqa are primed to take on the world, and will next appear live in action supporting American rock powerhouses Halestorm for their Knotfest 2024 Australian headline shows alongside Welsh metallers Skindred in Sydney and Brisbane.
