Behind The Horror releases single “Outland”

A journey that began in Central-Brazil, took the band Behind The Horror to New Jersey (USA), with a burning passion for metal. With the influence of big names like Sepultura, Metallica and Death, the duo created a unique vision of modern metal and crossed the limits, presenting a sound that goes beyond conventional metal.

To launch the project to the world, the band Behind The Horror shares the single “Outland”, the first promo for their debut album, titled “Burnup The Truth”, to be released later this year.

“Outland” brings a lot of feeling wrapped in heavy riffs with eight-string guitars and pulsating drums. “When you have something, you don’t realize the value of it and you only know that when you lose it, you discover how important that thing was, and you realize that you are not prepared. Also inspired by Illidan Stormrage’s quote from the iconic game, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade – You Are Not Prepared”, said vocalist and guitarist Gabriel Alves.

Founded by brothers Gabriel Alves (guitar and vocals) and Lucas Alves (drums), Behind The Horror has created a unique blend of old thrash metal and progressive metal arrangements, creating a modern sound that is not only characterized by variation and reasonable arrangements and skill, but also has a lot to say lyrically and vocally. The lyrics tell mixed personal stories inspired by favorite games like Magic: The Gathering and World of Warcraft,

Originally from Brazil and established in New Jersey (USA), the duo laid the foundations for their musical career with the EP ‘… And The Horror Begins’, released in 2013, and now they’re back with a new work, the debut album “Burnup This Truth” which will be released in the coming months. The songs are conceived from long jam sessions, blasting riffs, mixing and transforming everything until it fits.

The band has already received praise from Max Cavalera, who sent a video message to the brothers wishing the success, check out here:
