Canadian One-Man Epic Nerdy Black Metal Project SNAKEBLADE To Release New Album Tomorrow; Audio Preview Available
July 30, 2020, 12 days ago
Vancouver, Canada’s Snakeblade came about as a result of Covid-19 induced boredom when Mike Redston decided to escape the bleakness of reality by sojourning into a vivid, black metal world with themes embracing fantasy and medieval battles.
A big fan of fantasy, video games, and RPG’s; Redston as Snakeblade has channeled these interests into the full-length album, The Kingdom. Snakeblade is all about fun, high-energy songs that are nerdy and upbeat while still maintaining that raw and frostbitten black metal sound. Fast and loose, there are shredding, complex riffs, and a handful of solos from other Canadian musicians. Redston shares his excitement for the album:
"I am beyond stoked to be releasing my debut album for Snakeblade. I want fans to get hyped, feel like they’re marching to war, and experience a medieval battle of epic proportions when they hear it. Hopefully, they will also be able to experience what I found when writing these songs: a refuge from their current setting."
The fun, nerdy n’ dirty black metal is just starting off, with more music in the works and suggestions of a full lineup for eventual live performances that will carry a ton of energy and an epic atmosphere. Fans should expect a full-on battle at live shows... and fire. Lots of fire.
This epic one-man black metal project relentlessly charges forth and destroys all in its path. Recommended for fans of Skeletonwitch, Immortal, and Midnight, The Kingdom comes out on July 31st.
