Brazil’s Rage In My Eyes has been busy getting another record ready for fans. “Spiral” can be expected later this year and in the meantime, the band is unleashing the first single “And Then Came The Storm”. The band sets itself apart from other metal acts by incorporating elements of Milonga (folk music from southern South America) to their music.

When asked how they expect the forthcoming EP to be received by fans, the band responds: 

“There is plenty of material for all the different types of metal lovers. The EP overall sounds absurdly tight. It has great guitar riffs, fast drum parts, intricate instrumental parts, powerful yet melodic vocals. Sometimes it leans towards prog metal, sometimes to power metal, sometimes to folk metal, sometimes to traditional metal, sometimes to thrash metal, with a pinch of old school metal, like Sabbath and Dio. And it still sounds like a whole, due to how well blended it all is.”

Innovative and technical, the single  “And Then Came The Storm” is the definitive power metal track off the EP. It showcases powerful riffs combined with beautiful vocal melodies, plus a halftime exciting bridge followed by an intricate instrumental section. Lyrically, this one is a story of love and farewell and borders on power ballad territory.

This is an excellent glimpse into the band that Rage In My Eyes is pivoting towards as they separate from their previous reputation under the name “Scelerata”. Formerly, they were Paul Di’Anno’s backup band for Brazilian tours and had a 16-year history as such. They released three full-lengths under that name and since the change in 2018, have released one album “Ice Cell” in 2019. 

Recommended for fans of Blind Guardian, Helloween and Symphony X, Rage In My Eyes brings a new twist to classic heavy metal.

About:
RAGE IN MY EYES introduces to the world a unique kind of music. Being from southern Brazil, the band shows a side of the country most people don’t know about. Blending heavy/prog metal with elements of milonga – which is a music genre from southern Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina – the band presents new sound to the metal genre.

The band’s first album “Ice Cell” was recorded in 2017 and 2018, partially in Los Angeles due to drummer Francis Cassol’s move to the city and partially in their native Porto Alegre, Brazil.

For 16 years the band went under the name Scelerata, which had a huge history in the Brazilian heavy metal scene. The band had three albums released worldwide, including the internationally acclaimed album The Sniper – partially recorded in Germany, at the Blind Guardian studio – that featured guest appearances from Paul DiAnno (former Iron Maiden) and Andi Deris (Helloween).

Scelerata was also Paul DiAnno’s official Brazilian backing band from 2009 to 2014, playing 50+ shows with this heavy metal icon. With this huge background, the musicians are now aiming for the future.

RAGE IN MY EYES have teamed up with some of the best professionals in the heavy metal business to deliver a head-turning EP in 2021 entitled “Spiral” to follow the success of their 2019 full-length “Ice Cell”. The new EP will feature plenty of material for all different types of metal lovers. It has great guitar riffs, fast drum parts, intricate instrumental parts plus powerful yet melodic vocals.

The EP was written and made during a Covid pandemic. All band members suffered losses of loved ones during the pandemic, some directly related to Covid, some not. Also due to Covid, the band couldn’t get together in a practice room to jam the material. Each member had to work on their part separately, which was something new within the band. Plus, some songs were being written and arranged during the recording sessions, so they felt it was being made in real time. All of the above impacted the EP’s lyrics and songwriting. They like to think of this record as a way to say farewell to their dear loved ones and as a spiral of emotions that keeps coming and going during Covid times.

RAGE IN MY EYES’ new EP “Spiral” is due out October 15th, 2021.

Shared Stage with:
Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Kamelot, Gamma Ray, Angra, Edguy
