THE DAMNNATION attacks with their debut album, releasing a versatile sound that mixes multiple strands of extreme metal and brings old school thrash to life. Continuing to promote the album, the band releases the music video for the track “Slaves of Society”, produced and recorded by Starship Videos.
“In this video we decided to do it with a more ‘stage’ feel to express the idea of anger and anguish that is conveyed in the lyrics, a very evident moment now in the country”, comments vocalist and guitarist Renata Petrelli.
The band launches the new video and prepares for the Way of Perdition Latin America Tour, which starts this week.
‘WAY OF PERDITION’ was released May 6, 2022 via Soulseller Records on CD, LP and digitally, and produced and recorded by Rogério Oliveira, who worked on the EP Parasite’ and mixed and mastered by the renowned Martín Furia, who has worked on the Nervosa, Eskröta and BARK albums. Martin was recently announced as the new guitarist for the band Destruction.
Based in São Paulo / Brazil, THE DAMNNATION consist of Renata Petrelli (vocals, guitar), Aline Dutchi (bass, backing vocals), and Ellen Diniz (drums).
In 2020 they dropped a four-track EP entitled “Parasite”, on which the raging fist of old school Heavy Metal hit the skull of Thrash Metal. Imagine the love child of Judas Priest, Megadeth, and Power Trip if you will.
The thrash metal power trio is signed to Dutch label Soulseller Records. “We are very happy with this support and to be part of this cast with incredible bands from the world stage! We’re definitely going to have an incredible road together!”
The album received great reviews on several websites and specialized magazines such as Decibel Magazine, Metal Injection, Rock Hard, Zero Tolerance, Metal Hammer, among others. The Damnation played major shows across Brazil to promote and record and will embark on a late 2022 tour of Latin America.
Recently the band announced the departure of the great drummer Luana Diniz, who recorded and performed at ‘Way Of Perdition’, and announced the entry of the new drummer, Ellen Tavares, who will record the band’s new album scheduled for the end of 2023.
Now, the power trio will strike back even heavier – be prepared!
Headbangers News “36 minutes later we have a great play and the absolute certainty that Brazil follows a barn of good heavy bands” –
Invisible Oranges –“Renata Petralli’s beastly roar is somewhere between Max Cavalera and Angela Gossow–guttural with a Portuguese flair–and it easily tears through the band’s thrashing racket, which recalls old-school Sepultura’s in groove, and Sarcófago in atmosphere”
Decibel Magazine“For fans of dark, driving thrash, the debut full-length from Brazilian ultra-power trio The Damnnation will, paradoxically, be pure heaven” – Genre: Thrash Metal
