Finally one of the greatest albums of the Brazilian Power Metal, SCELERATA’s world-acclaimed ‘The Sniper’, reached the platform of the moment: Spotify.
The album is now available for audition, just search, or visit the link below:
Originally released in 2012, ‘The Sniper’ presents a much more mature and cohesive band. On this album, the band delivers heavier and more aggressive sound, beautifully combined with the prog and melodic elements already present in the previous releases. The lyrics on this album approaches a sad issue most countries have to deal with: corruption in politics.
‘The Sniper’ was produced, mixed and mastered by German top metal producer Charlie Bauerfeind. Its drum tracks were recorded in Germany, at legendary German metal band Blind Guardian studios, the Twilight Hall Studios. It features metal legends Andi Deris (Helloween) and Paul Di’Anno (former Iron Maiden) as special guests, not only as singers, but also as composers and co-writers. The band released a beautiful video for the song ‘Rising Sun’, remember the clip: https://goo.gl/MVWc66.
The disc was acclaimed worldwide. In Brazil it was voted 2nd best release of 2012 by the readers of Roadie Crew magazine, being placed right behind Brazilian metal superstar André Matos. The international success is also impressive, since the album had dozens of positive reviews, most of them gracing the band with the highest score.
SCELERATA right now is working on its fourth album. Always searching for higher quality and to work with top professionals in the metal music business, Scelerata decided to record the drum tracks in Los Angeles at Daufembach Studios, with top Brazilian metal producer Adair Daufembach (Tony MacAlpine, Dirk Verbeuren, Aquiles Priester). The drums were recorded in June, 2017, and the band is working on the production in their native country Brazil. The band promises to deliver to the fans some fresh, innovative, aggressive and melodic metal!
