Get ready as something special is about to be unleashed, heed “The Calling”, it‘s a killer slab of high quality melodic metal mixed and mastered by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer).
Today PrimitaiI premiere the video for brands new track “Overdrive” with MetalTalk. Check it out here: http://www.metaltalk.net/news_eighteen/primitai_overdrive_premiere.php
Here‘s what the band had to say about it:
"This was the first song we wrote for this album, it's about how it feels to be firing on all cylinders again. We tell this through the tale of a Mad Max style character, knocking down everyone who stands in his way, settling old scores before carrying on his journey. The song has all that euphoria and drive channelled into it, alternating between fast, slamming riffs and big melodic chord progressions topped with soaring guitar and vocal harmonies. Our drummer Jonny beats the hell out of the kit and Sergio and I seem to be competing who can play more notes in their guitar solo, we really felt off the chain! " Serj

Years in the making, Sense Of Fear's debut full length “As The Ages Passing By…” follows the band's 2013 self-titled EP.

“As The Ages Passing By…” was recorded at Valve Studio in Thessaloniki, Greece by Stratos "Strutter" Karagiannidis (Gus G , Wardrum) with mixing and mastering done at Music Factory and Prophecy Studios in Kempten-ALLGÄU, Germany by R.D.

Gone By Sundown was originally formed in 2013 by Tonie Rombin and Tomas Pedersen. The idea was to mix styles and inspiration from many different bands among Mustach, Motörhead and newer metal. The band soon recorded its debut single A Wise Mans Linger along with their debut video but shortly after, the members ran into internal problems and the band was put on ice. In early 2017, the project was re-started by Tonie Rombin and after extensive searching a new line-up was ready to write and perform.
The first new track written by the new Gone By Sundown was Will You Remember and was quickly followed by a batch of new material and the re-working of some old numbers to suit the new line up. During September and October 2017, the single and accompanying video was recorded and at the end of December 2017, Will You Remember(mixed by talented Brazilian underground producer Marcos Cerutti) was ready for release. The track was mastered by Swedish legendary producer Ronnie Björnström, known for working with heavy acts like Meshuggah, Nagelfar, any many more!
Gone By Sundown are now preparing the release of their new EP The Endless Path in May via Sliptrick Records.
