Get ready for FACESHIFT, the Stockholm based metal outfit you’re about to wonder why you haven’t heard yet! A couple of new tracks off the upcoming, second album have been brilliantly mixed by musical mastermind Lars Chriss (LION’S SHARE), that showcase the band’s crushing blend of massive riffs, earthquake drums and powerful, melodic vocals.
The personnel roster is a fascinating one: the rhythm guitarist and bass player are both death metal musicians originally (ETERNAL OATH and GODPHOBIA), the drummer plays in one of Sweden’s top prog metal bands (SEVENTH WONDER), the vocalist brings a melodic/power element to the table while the lead guitarist adds a really bluesy touch to the mix.
“Combining all those influences,” explains drummer Stefan Norgren, “could have proven a huge challenge, but in fact, once we started writing these new songs, everything fell right into place from the get go. The result is a handful of damn heavy, riff driven tracks, with BIG choruses and tons of cool vocal harmonies. I’d say FACESHIFT will be well received by fans of such diverse bands as PANTERA, MUSTASCH, ALICE IN CHAINS, SYMPHONY X and DIO alike.”
The band is currently recording the full album and is eager to find the perfect record label to release it. Don’t hesitate to get in touch!
