Sounds | Skarlett Riot, Human


Een jonge band uit het V.K. die ondertussen toch ook reeds 8 jaar actief is en in die periode 2 albums en 2 EP's heeft uitgebracht. Hun moderne rock/metal zal vooral fans van Skillet, Bullet For My Valentine e.d. aanspreken. Human is een erg catchy nummer met snedige hooks en best leuke vocalen van Skarlett. Niet helemaal duidelijk is wie de sporadisch ingezette 'harsh' vocals voor zijn/haar rekening neemt: Skarlett zelf of...?

Meer nieuwe tunes komen er zéér binnenkort aan.

ter info After the success of their Sentience EP (2016), hard-hitting UK quartet Skarlett Riot soon began to attract interest from far and wide. Signing deals with The Artery Foundation and Echelon Talent Agency were just the beginning for this highly rated act, soon they had signed a world-wide record deal with the pro-active and forward thinking Swedish label Despotz Records. With the ink still drying on their contracts the four-piece, led by the unique and passionate vocals of Skarlett, headed back in to the studio to begin work on their hugely anticipated second album. Renegate was released in 2017. The material was harder, heavier, faster but still driven by the anthemic hooks that have kept this band at the forefront of the UK modern metal scene. The band have constantly developed and honed their craft; and the band are in comfortable in their darker and heavier guise, with elements of Asking Alexandria, In This Moment and Bullet for My Valentine shining through; opening up all new possibilities for the band.

Although it's seemingly been quiet in the Skarlet Riot camp since their latest album release, truth is they've been working non-stop on brand ner music, the first result of which arrives in the form of long-awaited new single 'Human'. Still led by the charismatic vocals of Skarlett, the band is a tighter, more powerful proposition, with harsh vocals complementing the melody throughout this track, without every losing sight of the outstanding melodic intent. Musically the band has come on leaps and bounds from previous releases and the addition of new bassist Tim Chambers has given the band a renewed impetus.

"Skarlett Riot's brand new single 'Human' stresses the importance of respecting one another in all aspects of life. You don't know the battles someone could be facing behind closed doors!" // Skarlett Riot
