Spanish heavy metal powerhouse Slowburn is back with a scorching new album, “Fire Starter”, set to be unleashed on October 17th, 2023. The band recently launched a lyric video for the second advance single, “On Fire”, offering a tantalizing taste of what’s to come.
Founded in 2015 by Jorge Serrano, also known as the bassist of Rancor, Slowburn quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the Spanish metal scene. After releasing a demo and gracing stages across the country, they solidified their lineup with esteemed musicians from Madrid’s thriving music scene, including members from renowned bands like Roar, Rancor, Metal Legion, and Motociclón.
In February 2020, Slowburn unveiled their debut album, “Rock and Roll Rats,” under the banner of Fighter Records (and Clifford Steel on LP). Unfortunately, the pandemic and the challenges it brought led to lineup changes and temporary setbacks for the band.
Throughout their career, Slowburn has had the honor of sharing stages with notable acts such as Steve Grimmet’s Grim Reaper, Tank, Praying Mantis, Hitten, Witchtower, and Leather Heart, showcasing their dedication and musicianship in the live arena.
Slowburn’s music is a captivating blend of classic Heavy Metal, featuring intricate guitar riffs, groovy drum and bass arrangements, and infectious vocal melodies. Their sound incorporates elements of prog, ’70s rock, and ’80s hard rock. Among their influences are iconic bands like Armored Saint, Queensrÿche, Metal Church, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Savatage, and BlackFoot.
Spring 2023 saw Slowburn completing the recording of their sophomore album, “Fire Starter”, which promises a more polished and professional sound compared to their debut.
