Sounds | Gladenfold, Starborn


Melodic death en powermetal, de combinatie waarvan ik niet wist dat ik ze nodig had, maar man wat klinkt dit goed! Logisch eigenlijk, want dit zijn twee van mijn favoriete genres. Starborn begint meteen met leuke powermelodieën en geweldige clean vocals. Na een tijdje denk je: "ja, dit klinkt goed, maar het springt er niet echt uit tegenover andere powermetal". Maar dan... wanneer die screams erbij komen... Wauw. Kippenvel. Bangelijk. Die stem samen met die vrolijke melodieën... echt top. Dus, als je wel te vinden bent voor een goede dosis power of melodic death, dan is dit de band die jij moet ontdekken. Gladenfold werkt momenteel ook aan hun derde album, welke volgend jaar gereleased zal worden.


Ter info

Finnish Melodic-Death/Power-Metal band GLADENFOLD break the silence and strike back with their new digital single "Starborn" which is released via REAPER ENTERTAINMENT on every major platform. The song also comes along with a new music video containing footage of the band's latest studio session and also of the new band member Ville Vesa.


Drummer Lauri Itälä states:

“Starborn truly represents the power metal side of Gladenfold at its purest. It might be one of our catchiest songs to date, but also quite different compared to other songs we are preparing for the next album. Yet even though the song won’t make it to the album, we felt it is just too damn good one to be left out or go unnoticed. So, it became evident that we should release this one separately as a stand-alone single. While the next album is still in the works, here’s a true power metal gem for you to enjoy.”


Bassist Ville Vesa comments:

"After being last few years a live bassist, it feels good to formalize the relationship with Gladenfold. It has been really inspiring to work with guys on our new album and I really look forward to get the album out there for everyone. Starborn is a real banger. It's a song which is strong enough to stand alone. The music video also shows what polar nights and nightless nights do to one's mental health."
