Brazilian heavy rock/metal band Impavid Colossus are releasing their debut album, Prologue on the 13th July 2021 via Wikimetal Music.
You think Brazil, you think heavy music so it’s quite a nice surprise to listen to something like Prologue that leans more towards a hard rock sound. Hell, at times it has stadium rock qualities which says a lot about Impavid Colossus.
Filled with tons of riffs, hooks and beats, delivering thrills and chills with their exceptionally good choruses and making sure the head-bangers out there have plenty to enjoy. This is a stellar debut that has the air of a band much further into their careers then you might think. Tracks like Claim Your Existence, Rise and Fall, Hope and Man or Mouse are disgustingly catchy.
A lot of the praise that can be heaped on Prologue and Impavid Colossus has to surely fall at the feet of the vocals which are stellar throughout. Think a slightly gruffer Miles Kennedy of Alter Bridge with a touch of the late Layne Staley from Alice in Chains. A great example of this vocal power comes in the track King. With its melancholic start leading into a much chuggier and uplifting rhythm.
Although the excellent Preachers of Salvation certainly deserves a mention too. The melody and kick-ass drum beat work off the vocals brilliantly.
It’s just a damn fine hard rock album from beginning to end. Something that is so rhythmically pleasing all the way throughout, encouraging you to find your voice and sing along loudly.
