Those who find an inexhaustible source of listening pleasure in works of MEGADETH, EXODUS or PANTERA, as well as those who appreciate a heavier take on the classic approach of genre-defining acts such as IRON MAIDEN, JUDAS PRIEST or METALLICA are, according to Century Media Records, well advised to check out new ANGELUS APATRIDA album ‘The Call’. Released yesterday, April 30th, 2012, ‘The Call’ was recorded in Moita, Portugal at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso, while the striking artwork was handled by Gustavo Sazes. ANGELUS APATRIDA's new video ‘You Are Next’ was produced with directors Sara Cort and Adriana Lorente.
“The 10 ultra-catchy and dynamic new songs on ‘The Call’ clearly show a matured and more determined entity, sticking to their stylistic guns, but showcasing all the elements of their trademark-sound in a bolder and more irresistible manner. ANGELUS APATRIDA have a huge sense for melody, stirring hooklines, awe-inspiring instrumental skills and most of all, an unmatched understanding for effective and viciously aggressive songwriting.” [impresses the press release]
Originally founded around 2000 in Albacete, Spain, ANGELUS APARTRIDA (a mix of Spanish and Latin language, can be translated into English as “stateless” or “renegade angels”) launched two independent, self-released albums (‘Evil Unleashed’ in 2006 and ‘Give ‘Em War’ in 2007), prior to signing a worldwide deal with Century Media. Their third album, 2010's ‘Clockwork’ entered the official sales charts in Spain at number 44 as well as in Greece where the recording reached position 45. The album's first single, ‘Blast Off’, was backed up by a “very effective and vivid video-clip” which can be seen here (YouTube).
