NASSON To Release Debut Solo Album, Scars, In January; "Not Today" Music Video Posted

Frontiers Music Srl will release Scars, the upcoming debut solo album from Nasson (Sinner's Blood, Chaos Magic) on January 28. Nasson is a skilled guitarist, producer and songwriter, whom fans may recognize from his work with Sinner's Blood and Chaos Magic, and Scars sees him taking on the frontman role for the first time.

The new single and video, "Not Today" is out now. Watch the video below, and pre-order/save Scars here.

Nasson, a Chilean guitarist, songwriter, and now in-demand producer, has recently come to the attention of hard rock and metal fans through his work on the latest Chaos Magic album, Furyborn, and the outstanding debut record from Sinner's Blood, The Mirror Star. Based in Santiago, Chile, Nasson is a stellar writer, arranger, and musician and with this new solo project, he also reveals his abilities as lead vocalist.

On Scars, Nasson offers fine examples of contemporary melodic metal with influences ranging from Evergrey to Pretty Maids to Eclipse. Handling all the songwriting and arrangements, he also plays the bulk of the instrumentation on Scars, with the help of Rodrigo Leiva on drums and Caterina Nix (Chaos Magic) on background vocals. Caterina also appears together with her fellow talented Frontiers artists based in South America on the song “We Are The Army”,  where she is joined by fellow lead vocalists Gui Oliver (Landfall, Mayank), Mizuho Lin (Semblant, The Erinyes), and James Robledo (Sinner’s Blood). Other special guests on the album include Alessandro Del Vecchio for a vocal duet on “When it Rains”, Mistheria (Bruce Dickinson, Rob Rock) handling additional synth on “Mother Moon”, and Ignacio Torres handling lead guitars on “Not Today”, “Bringer Of Sorrow” and “We Are The Army”.

Scars is an outstanding, and quite personal album, showcasing the amazing abilities of this new star in metal music, Nasson.
