Armored Dawn are for sure one of the revelations of Brazilian Viking Metal. Staying true to their musical direction, the new album title demonstrates the Viking Zombie.
Raucous, wild and with immense power, Armored Dawn sets the level high. The expected may be the unexpected. Brazilian musicians know how to energize the music and every fan of heavy metal music will be diving into the sound.
Viking Zombie was recorded at Dharma Studios in Sao Paulo. Produced, mixed and mastered by Rodrigo Oliveira and Heros Trench. All musicians composed together to even strengthen their brotherhood in this case.
As the singer and founder, Eduardo Parras, states:
“One of the songs says ‘nobody knows who I am or what I have become’. This album is dedicated to those people who still didn’t find a place where they belong. Now, with this band, these people can join us and find strength in the Viking brotherhood”.
Eleven songs showing the Brazilian-Viking temperament, song writing and togetherness. Loud and intense, some slower and with almost tender feelings are taking the listener into the kingdom of Armored Dawn.
The first single will be Ragnarok supported by a video.
