São Paulo based metal band Amenize have announced their sophomore album titled Black Sky, which is set to release on October 15th. Since the trio’s 2010 release, When Angels Turn Into Demons, exchanging members and several side projects have kept the band quiet, but with no signs of slowing down. In 2014, Amenize’s newest drummer, Danilo Cruz joined, giving the band a complete lineup. Produced and engineered by Adair Daufembach, the eight track album will prove the five year wait was well worth it.
Amenize has also released a new lyric video of their lead single “Black Sky” from the upcoming album which you can watch below!
“‘Black Sky’ is the title song of the album. As a concept album, the story takes alce in an alternative world that’s dominated by an institution called Black Sky. The main character is someone like you, like me, like us who simply can’t stand living his life dominated by an invisible force that uses the alientation as its powerful weapon. It’s time to face the faceless.” – bRain, Guitarist and lyricist.
“In 2010, Bruno Corey (Singer) invited the guitarist Kaue Vaz, his longtime friend, to make a sound that would express all their creativity through the weight of Metal. After the invitation of Nicola Tommasini to take the sticks, Amenize was born.
Soon after the replacement of Kaue Vaz by current guitarist bRain, the journey to build the CD When Angels Turn Into Demons began. In this first original work of the band, the story of a former elite soldier, who survived the horror of war and struggles to contain his own fears and delusions, is told.
In 2014, Nicola left the band, leaving the drummer’s place for Danilo Cruz (Ex-Esylium). The first bass player to fully join the band will soon have his name released.
With a heavy and consistent show, Amenize stands out for its amazing music that merges anger and killers riffs with melodies that can touch souls.
Currently, the group is in the studio recording his new album entitled Black Sky, which will be released through the Eternal Hatred Records.”
