Coming from Hanover, Human Fortress has been flying the flag of power metal and taking no prisoners since their inception in 1997. After several lineup changes and eight albums, things seem a little bit more stable since Brazilian singer Gus Monsanto joined them in 2013. The band recently put out an album entitled “Epic Tales and Untold Stories”, which puts old material and new songs side by side, making this a perfect introduction to the band’s sound.
As seen on our review of the album, “Epic Tales and Untold Stories” clearly shows the band is as tight as ever, with a bright future ahead. Whether you prefer a more traditional form of metal, or power metal with keyboards and orchestrated parts, this band will please you. Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf is a long time friend of Gus Monsanto, and the two of them sat down to discuss the new Human Fortress album, Gus’ recordings during the pandemic, and much more.
