Rockshots Records announce they will be releasing BLUE HOUR GHOSTS new album “Due” on February 12, 2021.
The album is the follow up to their 2016 self-titled debut album. Teaming up once again with Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (Fear Factory, Grenouer, Levania, Noveria), BHG‘s “Due” is their sophomore effort continuing their blend of progressive, classic, gothic metal, and alternative rock.
Taking a fresh, powerful, and intense melodic assault, “Due” depicts a wide range of soundscapes ranging from full metal aggression to soft, acoustic atmospheres, passing through infectious and catchy hooks and refrains that will enthrall any music addict, along with sophisticated layered arrangements to satisfy the most demanding palates. Throughout the 9 songs, all the ghosts hiding in the blue hour are made alive in the deep and heartfelt narration provided by both music and lyrics, offering a unique and compelling listening experience.
Vocalist Ricky DC comments about the new album:
“Those who already knew Blue Hour Ghosts from their debut will notice a different approach, resumed in a much more album-oriented songwriting, a stronger identity as an outcome of the most recent lineup changes (vocals+drums) and will experience an extremely catchy full length, revealing new nuances of the Blue Hour sound.”
Keyboardist Simome Pedrazzi adds:
“With “Due” we are trying to engage new and established fans with an enjoyable, fresh and yet sophisticated multi-level listening experience. All the nine songs offer an abundance of hooks that can stick into the ear from first listen and remain impressed into the listener’s mind, stimulating his/her curiosity. There is no room for boredom, as within each song and throughout all the album, powerful and atmospheric sections alternate with each other in a seamless flow, thus keeping the attention high. The variety of musical colours displayed throughout the album and the extreme care we put into obtaining a lush and polished sound will allow for an extremely pleasant sonic experience”.
