A calling out of the masses to wake up and know the real enemy. The music is urgent, and the lyrics challenge the listener to seek the truth. In a world of monotonous uniformity, AFTERMATH stands out alone.

INVICTUS – Nostalgics on the height of time

 

2010 definitely ist the key year in the existence of this proficient youngsters. Since then, INVICTUS continuously refines their already surprisingly homogenous style, which is now presented to the broad public for the first time. 



So this wonderful melodic and dynamic POWER SPEED METAL came to existence, forged in a typical teutonic way, delivered with a lot of heart and passion. It’s pretty audible on their debut EP „Burst The Curse“ that the chemistry within the group is one of a kind.

TRACKS:
01. Burst The Curse 02:39
02. Gaia 03:22
03. Someone Out There 05:08

total: 11:09 min.
The involved songwriting was put in concrete terms in 2018. And that’s for sure, the fresh energy and intuitive originality is going to convince retro-maniacs and traditional headbangers as well with ease.

Competent guitar work will always find its listeners in Heavy Metal realms, especially if it is performed in such a fluent and appealing way as it is by the INVICTUS Shred-Duo Fabio and Andi.

Also the fact that the voice of frontman Nico sounds natural and organic throughout his whole vocal range is a pure pleasure to the Metal ear – especially considering the still dominant vintage-trend-excess with all its falsetto-orgies. This also applies for the touching ballad „Gaia”, where the singer proves his feeling for big moments.

Anyways, the heart and soul of this group is filled with the love for the golden age of Metal, where, especially in the 1980s, classic records were released almost in masses, records that build the foundation of the genre and are collectively worshipped to this day.

And the fact that INVICTUS evokes not only memories of early Priest, but also of teutonic giants like Helloween or Blind Guardian, suggests that these Bavarian newcomers carry similar qualities.

Therefore it’s safe to say, that INVICTUS will conquer their scene with the fresh and thrilling output on „Burst The Curse“ with ease. (Markus Eck)
