Sounds | Lions at the Gate, Not Even Human



Hoewel het nieuwe nummer van Lions at the Gate al een paar dagen uit is, is het er één die het verdiend om hier nog benoemd te worden. Lions at the Gate is het nieuwe alternative metal project met ex-Ill Niño leden Cristian Machado (vocals), Ahrue Luster (gitaar) en Diego Verduzco (gitaar) en wordt verder aangevuld met bassist Stephen Brewer (ex-Westfield Massacre) en drummer Fern Lemus (ex-Silence the Messenger). Not Even Human is de eerste single van de band en is precies wat je wilt horen van een band met bovenstaande bandleden. Alternatieve metal, met de herkenbare stem van Cristian, catchy refreinen en het toffe gitaarwerk van Ahrue en Diego. Dit beloofd alvast veel voor het album!


Machado over de track: “I feel so blessed to be in Lions at the Gate. We’ve all been making albums for a long time but I think it was time for us to make something special and memorable again. This album is exactly that. Take away our musical history, take away our long hair, take away our personal feelings, just make believe we were never there. This Lions at the Gate album is amazing. We finally made a modern metal album that metalheads will enjoy beginning to end. It’s deep, it’s memorable, I can’t wait for everyone to hear it, I can’t wait for everyone to hear the featured female artist on one of the songs!


Verduzco voegt hieraan toe: “I’m beyond proud and excited to announce our new band Lions At The Gate. Life is all about change and I feel that this music is the most dynamic and honest that we’ve ever written. I feel a sense of freedom and am completely reinvigorated and even anxious (in a good way) to be a part of something that pulls influence from so many directions . Each member brings a unique set of talent and tools. It’s quite frankly some of the best music we’ve ever written. Organic, honest, and true."
