Swedish/Norwegian melodic power metal band Saint Deamon is currently gearing up for the release of their much-awaited, new studio album, entitled ‘League Of The Serpent‘. About three and a half years since their quasi-“comeback” album ‘Ghost‘ (released in 2019), the band’s forthcoming offering will be available on April 21, 2023 via AFM Records.
Following previously-released, first album sneak peak ‘At Break Of Dawn‘, today, Saint Deamon are premiering a music video for their new single ‘Load Your Cannons‘.
“Time to bring this beast of an album one step closer to release! What better way to do it than bringin’ out the big guns and expose the full energy of the song for our next single release in a full blown -“It don’t get closer to live than this Bullsize production Video”, the band comments.
“We’re extremely proud to present ‘Load Your Cannons‘ to you all. Let us fill our hearts with the power of metal and the spirit of Captain Saint Deamon, and let us rock the night away! May your Friday be filled with headbanging, moshing, and the joy that can only come from Saint Deamon’s “Load Your Cannons. RAWK!”
Known for their high-quality sound and an individual touch (which is often hard to find in the power metal genre), also “League Of The Serpent” clearly shows the great quality of vocal wonder Jan-Thore Grefstad, guitarist Toya Johansson, bass player Nobby Noberg (ex-Dionysus) and new drummer Alfred Fridhagen (Gaia Epicus). First single releases showcase typical Saint Deamon compositions, yet the band skillfully incorporates progressive nuances and makes ‘League Of The Serpent‘ an album that will be most likely one of the genre highlights in 2023!
Vocalist Jan Thore reveals: “This album has been written in many ways similar to how we made our debut ‘In Shadows Lost From the Brave‘ back then. The songs are all new and fresh, no older song ideas have been used. The album consists of everything you can expect from Saint Deamon. Heavy, fast-paced, slow, powerful and melodic – it’s all here. I really feel that what you hear on ‘League Of The Serpent‘ is the best version of Saint Deamon.”
Just like its predecessor ‘Ghost‘, ‘League Of The Serpent‘ was mixed by Oscar Nilsson in the Crehate Studios (Scorpions, Crash Diet, In Flames). This time, mastering was handled by Tomas ‘Plec’ Johansson (The Night Flight Orchestra, Nocturnal Rites).
