The Sniper the new release from SCELERATA will undoubtedly turn heads, forcing metal icons to watch their rearview mirrors as these guys pull up fast with the nitrous afterburners firing! Testosterone infused, melodic power metal best describes their music, though there are also many moments showing a progressive edge and showcasing immense vocal talent.
Today SCELERATA is offering a sneak peek into The Sniper by debuting not one but two new songs from the album on the Nightmare Records Website. Get a first listen to the title track and the song “Rising Sun” right HERE.
The Sniper presents a stunning vocal performance from Fabio Juan, showing a much more matured band that delivers a heavier more aggressive sound, beautifully mixing power metal and melodic progressive elements ranging from angst ridden lyrics of corruption to sorrowful love lost. The huge and intricate production makes this album a must hear for any true metal fan.
The Sniper was produced, mixed and mastered by Charlie Bauerfeind with guitarist Renato Osorio. The album also features Andi Deris (Helloween) and Paul Di’Anno (ex-Iron Maiden) as very special guests, who not only sing but helped compose and co-write the songs.
SCELERATA got their start with their debut Darkness & Light which was released in 2006. It was mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward and featured guest appearances by Renato Borghetti (Accordeon), Edu Falaschi (Angra) and Thiago Bianchi (Shaman).
The band followed up with their sophomore release Skeletons Domination in 2008. This effort was mixed and mastered by Charlie Bauerfeind (Helloween, Blind Guardian, Rage, Saxon, Halford, Hammerfall, Motorhead).
Performing with giant names in rock and metal over the last decade, the band is looking forward to hitting the road soon on their own headlining tours.
