Spain’s leading Thrash Metal band Angelus Apatrida returns with their seventh self-titled album, which is set for release worldwide on February 5th, 2021 via Century Media Records.
Angelus Apatrida (“/ˈan-je-lus – a-ˈpa-tri-da/”) was produced by the band, recorded with Juanan López in September and October at Baboon Records, in Albacete, Spain and then mixed and mastered by Christopher “Zeuss” Harris (Rob Zombie, Overkill, Hatebreed, Municipal Waste, Shadows Fall) at Planet-Z in Wilbraham, MA, USA. The album features 10 songs, sounding more determined, versatile and ferocious than ever before and on the verge of the group’s 20th Anniversary.
To celebrate the album announcement, the band have released the first single and music video off the forthcoming release, “Bleed The Crown”, today. Watch the video directed by Fernando Morales below.
Angelus Apatrida about the release of “Bleed The Crown”:
“It’s really hard to choose what’s gonna be the first single of an album, which is a complete single by itself! ‘Bleed The Crown’ maybe is one of those classic Angelus Apatrida songs that unites energy, awesome riffs and catchy vocals that once you listen to it will stay in your head the whole day! Powerful song, screaming against dark powers pulling strings from above. A perfect appetizer of what’s coming next with our new album.”
The band adds:
How to make a cool, straight-to-the-face video during a pandemic lockdown? Just call some friends who actually own an awesome graphics studio, buy tons of beers and let’s get to work! We really wanted to support some local professionals in our town, especially if they’re friends of us and incredible pros; that’s been one of the better points of this. No story, no big deal. Since we cannot perform on stage, we wanted to reflect the real sweat, blood and tears of a real show, so that’s it! The incredible work on lights of Jorge and Juanan made every shot fit perfectly with the rage and attitude of the song itself. No kidding, I think you’ll feel the energy through the screen! We want to thank Fer, Antonio, George, Juanan, Baboon Records, Capitán Denim, Ayeres Antiques, Albeniz Albacete and Arenas Audio for their great work and invaluable help!”
