Swedish Power Metal Force MANIMAL Announces Brand New Album For 2021
Three years since their latest and highly acclaimed album, Purgatorio, Gothenburg heavy power metal overlords MANIMAL have announced a brand new studio record for the Fall of 2021 through AFM Records.
Despite the band‘s loyalty to traditional heavy metal influences, Purgatorio was a prime example of modern and trend-setting power metal characterised by musical enthusiasm, exceptional talent and new ideas. Following their latest magnum opus, 2021 will see the Swedish four-piece take their outstanding qualities to the brink of perfection: MANIMAL’s fourth album, with a yet unknown title, will showcase their wide range of a heavy as hell sound, and one that will most likely win over the true hearts of both the oldschool and modern metal fan!
To shorten your wait for the album release later this year, MANIMAL have just unleashed a first sneak peak with the blistering single “Forged In Metal“! While the track won’t stray away from the band’s heavy metal roots, it packs the extra punch and comes as a fresh adrenalin infusion. Stream the song on your favorite digital platform right HERE!
“The whole idea was to write a straightforward metal hymn with an irresistible “fist in the air” chorus”, says songwriter and guitarist Henrik Stenroos. Vocalist Samuel Nyman adds: “We wanted to create a video with an orgy in metal clichés since the song is a pure celebration to the genre. Fire, skulls and chains. That’s what it all boils down to.”
With this first album appetizer, MANIMAL indeed succeeds to celebrate heavy metal all along the line. Enjoy their brand new video clip for “Forged In Metal“ here:
