Brazilian Rock band MALVADA is releasing its new single and video, ‘Veneno’ via Frontiers Music. The first song written with the band’s new line-up and the first to be released on Frontiers, ‘Veneno’ is a piece about duality and women’s psychology, as stated by singer Indira Castillo: “These lyrics describe a lot about what it is to be a woman, about our dualities, about what it is to be poison and at the same time our own antidote. I hope that people communicate and identify with this duality that exists in human being.” “’Veneno’, for me, is the light and shadow that exists in human beings, which is very present in female psychology. It is precisely about the importance of duality” – adds bassist Rafaela Reoli. Musically, “’Veneno’ it’s the juice of national pop rock” – according to drummer Juliana Salgado. “We took a little bit of everything we like to hear in Brazilian rock music, put it together and it turned out in something really… Malvada.” Guitarist Bruna Tsuruda also recalls how Veneno “was the first song we made together with the new formation, and that’s why it’s so special: it was the first sign of the new era. We flowed very easily and Veneno was the proof that the new formation would flow easily.

Canadian modern power metal icons UNLEASH THE ARCHERS recently announced the upcoming release of their massive sixth studio album, Phantoma, out May 10 via Napalm Records. Following the album’s first two singles ‘Green & Glass’ and ‘Ghosts In The Mist’, the Vancouver based five-piece has revealed their soaring third single, ‘Seeking Vengeance,’ along with a new music video. Beginning with a fast paced guitar lead and modernized power metal attacks, the song entrances with a powerful chorus and intricate dual solo. On the new concept album, listeners join protagonist Phantoma, a Phase 4 / Network Tier 0 unit – model A, on an inspiring yet harrowing journey as she discovers the brutal truths behind the manufactured sheen of social media posturing on a dystopian, near-future planet earth. With the band’s one-of-a-kind blend of power metal, traditional heavy metal, modern prog and pop sensibilities, Phantoma spins a web of sharp musicality, high sci-fi concept and important social commentary. Brittney Slayes of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS says about ‘Seeking Vengeance’: “This is the moment in the story when Phantoma comes to terms with what she must do and who she must become in order to do it. We worked really hard to make sure the music reflects the energy of the moment, and I think the video does a great job of portraying the inner struggle as well. This was filmed and edited by the boys at RuneGate Studio and they focused on using lighting and different lenses to create a dynamic visual experience. The song is the darkest moment of the album but it is juxtaposed with an uplifting chorus melody that was actually inspired by classic Disney ’hero anthems’. This one was a unanimous single choice for us and we can’t wait to play it live for you all at our upcoming shows! Hope you enjoy.” [via Outburn]
