After publishing the review of Angelus Apatrida‘s new album, Lords of Black is the second Spanish band to be featured here at Sonic Perspectives in less than a month, so it seems the Don Quixote compatriots must be doing something right.
Formed in Madrid in 2014, the melodic progressive metal collective quickly gained popularity after their self titled album and follower “II” were released. With their new effort Icons of the New Days released last May 11th, they are ready to reach a promising new chapter in their career. Produced once again by Roland Grapow (ex-Helloween, Masterplan), the album showcases the vocal talent of Ronnie Romero quite prominently, while featuring blistering fretwork from main composer Tony Hernando. The albums offers a fine collection of amazing songs, drawing from the influences of traditional heavy metal with elements of progressive metal thrown in the mix with robust production showcasing all the member’s talents. Writer, and interviewer Rodrigo Altaf spoke with Tony Hernando at length about a variety of topics, covering since the band’s origins to their current plans moving forward.
