Sounds | Hiraes, Solitary



Een fijne portie melodic death met gruntende vocalen die je trommelvliezen aan gort rijten maar tegelijkertijd overgoten met sprankelende gitaarsolo's. Dat is de formule van Solitary, de tweede single en titelnummer uit het aankomende debuutalbum van Hiraes. Release datum wordt 25 juni en Hiraes' partner in crime wordt Napalm Records.

Hiraes werd opgericht nadat de band Dawn Of Disease vorig jaar ter ziele ging en de vier muzikanten besloten om verder te gaan met vocaliste Britta Görtz. Een schot in de roos want Görtz beschikt over een gespierd stel stembanden.

Eerder verscheen ook al de single Under Fire.

German melodic death metal demon HIRAES is set to release its first sonic onslaught to the masses with the long-awaited, fearless debut offering, Solitary, on June 25, 2021 via Napalm Records.

Today, after unleashing their raging first single, “Under Fire”, the unit - comprised of members of the disbanded Dawn Of Disease and with the powerful Britta Görtz (Critical Mess, ex-Cripper) on vocals - sets free their second offering and title track “Solitary”, along with an exciting official video. Heavy-driven riffs evoke a dark and explosive melodic death metal storm fueled by a fierce growling attack, dropping jaws and leaving a long-lasting impression.

HIRAES already established its own remarkable identity built upon a smashing femme vocal attack, intense melodies and charging guitars, led by guitarist Lukas Kerk as main songwriter. An atmospheric, instrumental intro introduces the album opener “Shadows Break'', whilst showcasing the impressive vocal onslaught of seasoned frontwoman Britta Görtz shortly after. “Grain Of Sand” sets the next exclamation mark while delivering an unrelenting attack of smashing riffs along with an inexorable vocal performance, followed by standouts such as brutal “1000 Lights” and razor-sharp “Eyes Over Black'', proving that HIRAES don’t decelerate for a second.


This massive melodic death metal assault leaves no scope for weakness and serves an exciting take on the genre with hymnlike melodies, enthralling drums and guitar riffing as well as breathtaking hooklines. Topped with the distinctive and versatile performance of Britta Görtz, this powerful new formation and its debut, Solitary, is a must have for fans of bands like INSOMNIUM, AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY and AMON AMARTH.
