On The Loose - Midnight - Reviewed By Hard Rock Info ! check it out here at this link: http://www.hardrockinfo.com/reviews/2022/march.html#ontheloose
This is a 1-man band with Marco Marouco (EXTREME UNCTION, ELS FOCS NEGRES, PERPETRATOR), who due to the pandemic could not play live with his other bands. So he decided to do his own album, which was supposed to be instrumental with an orchestra. But after waiting for months without any orchestra parts, he decided to do a pure metal album instead. And thanks for that.
He asked Flávio Lino (AIRFORCE, IRON BEAST) to sing on the album, and João Pedro Ventura (The LIMIT, DAWNRIDER) to play drums. His friend Rick Thor wrote the lyrics.
The music is epic doom metal in the same style as CANDLEMASS and similar acts, while the vocals reminds me of Bruce Dickinson (IRON MAIDEN, SAMSON). And the 7 songs that we get on this album are all strong, so it's a shame that this is just released digitally (that should change as soon as people have heard this though, because some label must be interested in a physical release). - Hard Rock Info
Release Date: March 20th, 2022
FFO: Candlemass, Sorcerer, Crypt Sermon
With the pandemic no music was allowed on stages so after some personal decisions I had time to do MY album.
I also play in 3 bands: Extreme Unction, Els Focs Negres and Perpetrator, also played with heavy metal maniacs SABATAN and satanic speed metalers OMISSION from Spain did the solos for 3 DECAYED albums and was a live session guitar player for FILII NIGRANTIUM INFERNALIUM.
I wanted to do an instrumental album with an orchestra, all the music that you will listen was supposed to be instrumental, but after some months waiting for the orchestrations, from 3 different guys I decided to ask my friend Lino who also sings in a tribute Iron Maiden band Iron Beast and also with the UK based band AIRFORCE to sing in the album.
The album will be released on March 20, 2022, the next equinox with or without a label. Because I want that date and that´s it, this is a one-man project but if there is help from the public this might be a live band. I invited João Ventura from THE LIMIT / Dawnrider to play the drums and asked my friend Rick Thor to write some wonderful lyrics, all the artwork photos taken by me.
Musically expect a mix of Candlemass and Iron Maiden , about the lyrics, are all small little stories each has a concept that leads to a deadly sin. The album has 7 songs 7 deadly sins
Vocals: Flávio Lino
