FFO: Helloween, Hammerfall, Gamma Ray, old school heavy and power metal
Fronted by Jani Pöysä, Renegade Angel is an exciting new project which features galvanised riffs, gritty vocal runs and melodic metal. They’ve been carving a name for themselves in their native Finland and despite their recent inception, they’ve already garnered attention online and have received glowing reviews.
Renegade Angel features some of the finest musicians on the circuit, with each one being handpicked by Pöysä, ensuring that his vision will be executed with finesse and professionalism. Some familiar names include Lukky Sparxx of the heavy glam outfit Exxocet and trailblazing bassist Charles Berthoud.
Their debut single is a hurricane of hard hitting riffs, brutal percussion and a ferocious vocal performance from metal powerhouse Alejandro Fernandez. A well-known name within the metal scene, Fernandez navigates immense vocals and swirly synth sections with ease.The layered sound effects heighten the tone, subsequently adding more dimension to the beastly track.
‘Journey into Madness’ explores mortality and maintaining a level head during trying times. A bold and rugged debut single from the outfit, setting the pace for more dynamic and genre-bending influences to seep through.
Opting for a more traditional metal composition, it leaves listeners with an air of familiarity whilst still bringing a fresh perspective to the genre. This is amplified by the solid and punchy drumbeat, soaring guitar solos and throbbing bass lines. It’s fierce, mammoth and has clear nods to the forefathers of metal.
‘Journey into Madness’ will be digitally released on Spotify and other streaming platforms on the 28th August 2020 and can be presaved here.
