If there is one new album you listen to this weekend the the self titled record from Spanish Thrash Metallers Angelus Apatrida which was unleashed from the gates of hell by Century Media and reviewed by us is the one that we recommend. Their seventh studio record comes with artwork by Gyula Havancsák (Annihilator, Destruction, Stratovarius) and a visualiser for “We Stand Alone” is also out now.
The band comment about the album as follows: “This new album is the culmination of one year working nonstop during a global pandemic. We’ve been able to get all the bad feelings and emotions lived during 2020 and transform them into something good with positive attitude; no doubt this is the best bunch of songs that we’ve ever created, full of creativity and incredible sound and production, back to the roots. If you’re with us for a long time, we’re pretty sure you’re gonna enjoy this like the first time, and if you’re new in the office, this is the best card invitation for your first contact. It’s pure power and raw energy, the most aggressive, angry and violent songs together in one straight-to-your-face album. This is hostile music for hostile times. Watch out your neck and enjoy the double AA!”
And the single: “The art of speed metal together with groove and strength! Catchy but ferocious, “We Stand Alone” sends a message of unity, of taking care of your close family and friends and stand for them. No doubt it’s gonna be a great anthem on tour singing out loud with one fist in the air and a cold beer (or soda) in the other hand! The video is a cool visualizer made by Josep Caballero from RCV Visual Studio using the piece of art that Gyula Havancsák created as the cover of the album. It’s been a pleasure working with these two great artists…hope you enjoy it!”
