Fer de Lance - "Triumph and Tragedy" (audio)

Fer de Lance: Αμερικάνικη μπάντα επικού heavy metal αποτελούμενη από μέλη (πρώην ή νυν) συγκροτημάτων όπως οι Moros Nyx, Professor Emeritus, Satan's Hallow, Midnight Dice και Smoulder. Ουσιαστικά δημιουργήθηκαν όταν ο τραγουδιστής MP (ή MP Papai) και ο drummer Rüsty (ή Ian Weaver Sugierski ή Ian "Pit Viper" Sugierski) αποφάσισαν να "βάλουν στον πάγο" τους Moros Nyx και να αναβάλουν την κυκλοφορία του δεύτερου δίσκου τους για να ασχοληθούν με πιο "βαρύ" και "σκοτεινό" metal. Το αποτέλεσμα της προσπάθειας θα το ακούσουμε τον Μάρτιο που θα κυκλοφορήσει το τεσσάρων τραγουδιών ep υπό τον τίτλο "Colossus"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «FER DE LANCE came together when Professor Emeritus and Moros Nyx members MP (guitar/vocals) and Rusty (drums) decided to shelve MOROS NYX’s second album after MP, now well into writing compositions with a darker and heavier feel, created the demo for the song “Colossus”.

To complete their lineup, MP and Rusty enlisted a familiar face: Smoulder guitarist Collin Wolf. Rusty released SMOULDER’s first demo via his own Hoove Child Records, and also filled in on drums for the band’s November 2018 performance at the Hammer Of Doom Festival festival, making Wolf a natural fit to join the fold.

Shortly thereafter, the band got to work on the songs that would become “Colossus”, a four-song foray that was recorded in July and October 2019 at Altered States Studio in Chicago with producer/engineer Matt Russell. Inspired by the likes of BATHORY, ENSLAVED, BORKNAGAR, AMORPHIS, ROTTING CHRIST and ATLANTEAN KODEX, FER DE LANCE’s sound is one of extremes.

While their song structures are simple, the melodies, harmonies and subject matter are complex, often punctuated by the soaring vocals of MP, as well as acoustic guitars, epic choirs, searing guitar licks and the intense rumble of drums.»

Rüsty: «MP’s inspiration for writing these songs and for pushing for a heavier, darker sound from what we’ve done before was in part due to being jaded with writing music appropriate to form, genre, or having to perform music that he either didn’t fully believe in, or in the case of a former band, was lacking energy and emotion.

Another part of the inspiration for FER DE LANCE’s music is MP’s living and wintering in Newfoundland. The album artwork shows a little of this, but the winter is long, dark, and isolating, and the world outside Newfoundland is not much better.»

    1. Εν πρώτοις, ναι. Μάλλον "φταίει" που μου θυμίζει (αρκετά) Bathory και ειδικότερα το μεγαέπος "Twilight of the Gods"...
