Marenna, one of the most important bands within the Brazilian Hard Rock/Melodic Rock scene, has announced the release of their fourth and most audacious new studio album entitled ‘Voyager‘, for September 30th, via Danish label Lions Pride Music.
Since ‘Pieces Of Tomorrow‘, their highly praised previous EP released last year, the band has been betting on this new most mature phase with an extremely melodic and heavy sound. Full of energy and identity because of the crystal clear production, choruses typically 80’s and sound influenced by great bands of the past, and also, present, ‘Voyager‘ has everything to be one of the great highlights of this year.

“I started the composition process still in October 2019, and today is a day to celebrate, because we got here, 30 months later, with this preview of what will be our best work yet. ‘Voyager‘ was recorded at a distance, part in Caxias do Sul and part in Porto Alegre during all the instability of the pandemic scenario between December 2020 and February 2022. I believe I was able to gather the best songs and work with the best team, in the most efficient and feasible way. Even though everything was done remotely and coordinated via whatsapp, the result exceeded all our expectations, which are the best for this release, and this feeling is priceless. Personal motivation, planning, good communication, and a fluid relationship, free of egos, gave way to what we have in these 12 tracks. Long live Brazilian heavy music!“, commented Rod Marenna.
Marenna, formed in 2014 and led by experienced singer/songwriter with over 25 years of career Rod Marenna, bets on Melodic Rock and produces a hybrid mix between Classic Hard Rock and AOR (a more commercial style, aimed at adults, popular on FM radios and soap operas of the 80’s and 90’s), all with a modern production. Incorporating melodic layers of keyboards, guitars and vocals, and bringing in the music situations of modern everyday life, highlighted by messages of optimism, resilience and faith, their mission is to rescue the best days of Melodic Rock. Its rich discography are all available on digital platforms and in physical fortmats.
