COMBINING MELODIC METAL AND ATMOSPHERIC POETRY – FINNISH BAND AVERLANCHE RELEASED THEIR 2ND SINGLE
Finnish-German melodic metal band Averlanche has released the second single from their upcoming debut album.
Averlanche's keyboardist Antti Kopra talks about the song: ”Circus started to take it’s form as I rediscovered an old melody I had written a long time ago. Originally it wasn’t even meant to be on the album. Later on I got the idea to include a poem in the C-part and I knew I had to ask my friend to recite it for us. It ended up becoming the most beautiful part of the whole song and we all agreed that we have to release Circus as a single.”
”Circus is one of my favorite songs on the album, because of the atmosphere it creates. The beautiful melodies take you into a magical world you’ll never want to leave. When I heard Vicky recite the poem for the first time it brought tears to my eyes.” band’s singer Rebecca comments.
The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Hiili Hiilesmaa who has worked
with bands like HIM, Moonspell, Sentenced and Apocalyptica. It was
recorded at Studio Watercastle by Arttu Sarvanne in fall 2019.
The first single “The Sounds of Insomnia” was released May 15th.
