Hunted: Returns stronger than ever…..

Hunted – Deleiver Us

Pitch Black Records is thrilled to announce that Welsh-borne progressive heavy metal act Hunted has joined the label’s roster!

After a lengthy break from release activity, Hunted returns stronger than ever with the band’s sophomore full-length effort Deliver Us, scheduled for release on September 10th.

Now operating as a quartet consisting of arch-wailer Chris G, axeman Steve Barberini along with the habile rhythm section of bassist Jon Letson and drummer Matt Animal Thomas, the band has spent their time wisely; improving upon their compositional and instrumental skills to offer us this mercurial blend of Heavy Metal’s past, present and future.

 Painstakingly refined into maximum alchemical combustion by the expert hand of Sonic One Studios’ producer Tim Hamill, the new material sees the four-piece up the ante in regard to the successful formula established on their praised debut album Welcome The Dead (2010, Massacre Records), arriving at an updated mode of expression that can only be described as a highly distinctive amalgamation of North American and EuropeanpProgressive heavy/power metal.

As was pointed out by reviewers in the past, Hunted takes no issue in transgressing neither genre- nor songwriting rules when necessary, delivering songs that effortlessly navigate through vertiginous tempo shifts, serene sonorities and all-out aggression. The result is a breathtaking musical journey that will surely leave no listener untouched, making for a particularly satisfying listening experience for fans of Nevermore or Chuck Schuldiner’s daring work with Control Denied during the same era.

However, considering the nature of the eleven incredibly versatile tracks that constitute Deliver Us, Hunted does not paint themselves into this or that stylistic corner and will surely appeal to a wider listener base as well. As a sign of their broad musical ground, Hunted has chosen to include a lush and ample cover of Spanish cult act Angeles Del Infierno`s Maldito Sea Tu Nombre, sung entirely in Spanish, of course. The cover song will be a bonus track on the CD edition of the album.

Now, if you dare to venture beyond the safe confines of conventional Heavy Metal… take heed and let Deliver Us give you one hell of a ride! Deliver Us is out on today on CD and Digital.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5870 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
