Fantastic national project – I don't think we can call it a band – which was actually born as a solo album by Marco Marouco of Els Focs Negres, Perpretatör and Extreme Unction that in pandéic times wanted to dedicate itself to this project that would initially be instrumental. He eventually changed his mind and invited Fábio Lino (ex-Deadlyforce and currently in the Airforce) to the position of vocalist and João Ventura (The Limit and Dawnrider) for the drums and Marouco is in charge of guitars and bass, also counting on Alex Van True in the choirs. The production is raw but perfect for what is expected – heavy/doom metal that makes it agree with the description provided by the author himself, a mixture between Candlemass and Iron Maiden. Without needing any kind of comparison, it is a project that seems fresh and has a lot to grow on. Exciting first album!
Fernando Ferreira - World Of Metal
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
Drums: João Pedro Ventura
