MANIMAL release new single "Armageddon" and announce new album

Swedish Metal Force MANIMAL Shares Epic Title Track From Upcoming Album "Armageddon"!

August 06, 2021

Three years since their latest and highly acclaimed record, "Purgatorio", October 8, 2021 will see Gothenburg metal force MANIMAL return with their brand new studio album, titled Armageddon through German label AFM Records.

Despite the band‘s loyalty to traditional heavy metal influences, Purgatorio was a prime example of modern and trend-setting power metal characterised by musical enthusiasm, exceptional talent and new ideas. As expected of a band that claims Judas Priest, King Diamond and Queensrÿche as major influences on their sound since Day 1, MANIMAL’s new record is a high energy, in-your-face salute to the music that inspired them over the past 20 years.

The songwriting for "Armageddon" was once again headed up by guitarist Henrik Stenroos, considered by his bandmates to be the musical mastermind behind MANIMAL. And therein lies the secret to the band's more-than-power-metal sound. Stenroos listens to all different types of music and because of that colourful musical palette, according to Nyman, "he boils it down and gets his own ideas, trying to create something he likes himself." 

"I’m really proud we’ve managed to create yet another great album together." Henrik Stenroosadds. "And it’s been a team effort. All four of us have put so much soul and effort into everything from song writing to recording, with the result of a really heavy and all through awesome sounding album without any fillers what so ever. The fans of our previous works will not be disappointed."

MANIMAL's evolution between Armageddon and their first album, "The Darkest Room" - released in 2009 - is unquestionable. Their songwriting has become tighter, stronger and bolder, and they have improved by leaps and bounds as musicians. Armageddon will showcase their wide range of a heavy as hell sound, and one that will most likely win over the true hearts of both the oldschool and every modern metal fan!

Armageddon will be available as LP, CD and Digital on October 8, 2021 through AFM Records, the pre-sale just started here
