Hot News: Angelus Apatrida – Debut First New Song; Shooting Video Clip This Weekend!

Spanish Thrash Metallers ANGELUS APATRIDA are back for the attack with a new studio album entitled “The Call“, which is to be released on April 30th, 2012 all over Europe via Century Media Records. A first taste of the relentless power displayed on “The Call” can now be experienced by checking out the dynamic opening track “You Are Next“, which is debuted online now on the Century Media Records YouTube channel. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9estb5rH63k

ANGELUS APATRIDA checked in to comment about the song and the material on their new album “The Call” as follows: “We think that ‘The Call’ is a record that represents the wide variety of styles and elements in our music extremely well; every song stands alone strong and unique in its own way, making the album a whole piece that needs to be heard completely to get the full idea of the sound of the band. But, if we had to choose one song to represent the whole thing, it would be ‘You Are Next’ because, both lyrical and musically, it showcases the anger and fury we wanted to put into this album, and also reflects the step forward we feel we have made technically. It’s a song that starts slowly and trying to capture the listener before exploding into a furious sonic assault.”

ANGELUS APATRIDA‘s new album has just been finished with the same creative team as their previous release, “Clockwork“: It was again recorded in Moita, Portugal at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso (Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, etc.) and the striking artwork was handled by Gustavo Sazes / Abstrata (Arch Enemy, Krisiun, etc.). Additionally, the band is set to shoot a video clip for the song “You Are Next” this next weekend in Madrid with directors Sara Cort and Adriana Lorente, who had also worked on the band’s previous video, “Blast Off”. Check said clip from the “Clockwork” album here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTpW2-_TQnQ

1. You Are Next

It’s been a busy time for ANGELUS APATRIDA ever since the release of their previous album, “Clockwork”, in 2010: After a support slot on the Spanish Arch Enemy tour in December 2009, this ambitious and voracious Thrash Metal quartet did about 80 (!) shows in their native Spain as well as in Portugal (including slots at all relevant festivals like Sonisphere or En Vivo) and crowned activities by supporting the Slayer / Megadeth tour there. Additionally, ANGELUS APATRIDA also toured Europe twice: First together with Skeletonwitch / Warbringer and then with Dying Fetus, Keep Of Kalessin, Carnifex and Fleshgod Apocalypse (as part of the “Bonecrusher Fest”), which helped expand the band’s international visibility and showcase their high level of musical skills abroad as well.

“Clockwork” was the band’s third album release and achieved phenomenal media response: Spain’s leading music magazine Mondosonoro voted ANGELUS APATRIDA “Best Metal band of the year (2010)”, Kerrang Spain and Rockzone Mag named them “Best band of the year (2010)” and Rolling Stone Spain finally labeled them as “The Spanish band that plays the most outside of the country”. Upon release, “Clockwork” entered the official sales charts in Spain on #44 and in Greece on #45.

More details about the new album “The Call” will be released in the coming weeks…
