Let’s talk about Redemption, the upcoming EP from new Italian signings Tonight We Stand. The EP kicks off with the title track Redemption which builds from a slow, semi-acoustic intro and keeps growing until shimmering, melodic guitars arrive. Eventually, the rhythm section bulldoze their way in and lay the foundations for the next song, Dear Downfall which give us our first chance to hear the juxtaposition of harsh and melodic vocals that intertwine throughout the EP, clashing over the hard and heavy riffs of the band. Next up is the single from the EP, Invisible Enemies (check out the brand new official video below), where a guitar melody driven intro segues into some serious riffing. It’s a head banger and a classic piece of Modern Metal. The EP ends with the “Maiden-esque ballad” called Cross The Nile with it’s pulsing Egyptian flavour, powerful breakdown and catchy solos.
The title Redemption was chosen for the common themes of the groups songs contained on the EP; the never-ending battle between life and death, good and bad, people who face their everyday problems in their life and have the power to redeem themselves, to fight back, to stand up. In their name lies their mantra, Tonight We Stand.
