Maple Metal Records Presents: FACE OFF - The Colour Of Rain (2013)
European female-fronted metal band FACE OFF storm out of the gate with excellent song writing, and powerful riffs on their debut album The Colour Of Rain (2013). Crank up the volume, and FACE OFF will deliver a knockout punch with 9 tracks of pure solid Alternative-metal, with just a touch of goth!
FACE OFF do have the commercial appeal to go very far in the metal world!
FACE OFF are: Marija Kovacevic - Vocals, Stefan Vitasovic - Guitars, Aleksandar Djordjic - Guitars, Stanislav Stanojevic - Bass, Zoltan Simon - Drums
With Marija Kovacevic’s hauntingly melodic voice there is a striking contrast to the thundering rhythms and distorted chaos, produced by the other four members of the band. The guitars play a pivotal role in the recording, and help drive each track forward. With many different tempo changes, the drums, bass & guitars add power and variety to the mix when necessary. FACE OFF bring to the table a refreshingly new sound to the melodic metal genre, and the music reminds us of a metallized version of Evanescence.
Belgrade (RS) based FACE OFF have already won a few band competitions in their native homeland, toured across Serbia, been broadcast by national radio, and performed on Serbian national TV in their young career since 2006.
“FACE OFF have put together an excellent collection of tracks for their first album.” - 339Metal Radio
“FACE OFF are a cut above the usual, they mix this soothing gothic vocal metal delivery with some impressive guitar riffs that are going to get your attention. A mix of heavy alternative and melodic metal.” - Wicked Channel Webzine (USA)
"This one is for the heavy metalheads, you want your guitars loud and penetrating, this is for you. You want sounds to wake the dead, step right up. The message may be in the tradition of the Gothic, but metal never sounded better." - Sonic Cathedral Webzine (USA)
"I get a heavier Tool feeling when I listen to this. Or a Paramore that has dropped all pop aspirations and gone all heavy metal on us." - Battle Helm Webzine (Sweden)
The CD digipak includes a 10 page booklet with lyrics, and outstanding artwork - “a very professional package, with amazing sound production”
