New release from: SKARLETT RIOT – Invicta (May 07, 2021)
After the success of their second album Regenerate, the hard-hitting UK quartet Skarlett Riot reinforced their interest from far and wide. With Regenerate the band introduced their listeners to a harder, heavier and faster sound, but still driven by the anthemic hooks that have kept Skarlett Riot at the forefront of the UK modern metal scene. The band have constantly developed and honed their craft; and the band are comfortable in their darker and heavier guise, with elements of Asking Alexandria, In This Moment and Bullet for My Valentine shining through; opening up all-new possibilities for the band.
The follow-up to their Despotz Records release Regenerate, the album was recorded throughout a time of global uncertainty and confusion but despite what was going on in the world, Invicta is the most focused and forthright release of the band’s career. Built around the spectacular vocals of Skarlett and a powerful musical landscape unique to the band, Invicta is melodic, intense, and packed with anthems. Skarlett has broadened her vocals this time out, adding some harsh elements to proceedings, giving the songs and the band an aggressive edge. The first three singles from the album (“Human“, “Gravity” and “Stronger“) introduced the new sound to great acclaim and set the tone for what to expect from the album and from Skarlett Riot in 2021.
The band comments; “We are so excited to finally release our brand-new album INVICTA! This album has been three years in the making and we can’t wait for you to hear the results of the huge amount of work that’s gone into this. We’ve overcome so much together as a band throughout the years and Invicta represents the physical and mental struggles we’ve experienced together and individually, making us who we are today – Invicta.” – Skarlett Riot.
Skarlett Riot have taken the scene by storm with their powerful, riff-led songs blending melody and grit with a muscular backbone. Add to that an ear for infectious hooks, a singer blessed with a huge voice, and you have a band that not only has bags of attitude but the songs to back them up!
