In January of 2017 the musicians Dalton Castro and Maurício Velasco decided to create Ignited, a band with the proposal to play energetic heavy metal with great melodies. To complete the lineup, they invited Denis Lima and Sama Benedet , and together finished the first songs which would become a EP to introduce them to the music scene, but with new ideas flowing it naturally became something bigger and they decided it was time to start the pre-production of a full-length.
Between April and August of 2019 the band went to Estúdio Fusão , a studio owned by Thiago Bianchi (ex-Shaman, Noturnall) , to record “ Steelbound ”, and having Thiago responsible for the production, mixing and mastering. For the artwork they partnered with Gustavo Sazes , a veteran Brazilian artist who previously worked with names like Manowar , Arch Enemy and Morbid Angel .
In its lyrics, " Steelbound " addresses different subjects and experiences that are brought to the listener through metaphors, seeking an authentic connection with the fans, giving them the opportunity to make their own personal interpretations of each song.
Ignited ’s debut album delivers energetic and catchy melodies to make fans bang their heads, with a sonority described by critics as “inspired by traditional heavy metal , but with identity and modern approach”. After making it available on digital platforms and release a video and a lyric video, the band signed a deal with Voice Music to make a physical release of the album in Brazil in June of 2020.
