SERIOUS BLACK | Release New Single ‘Rock With Us Tonight’ via AFM Records.

    SERIOUS BLACK has turned into a prime example of a deeply melodic and at the same time delivered a dynamic power metal album. The band unleashes their second single and video for ‘Rock With Us Tonight‘. The message is clear the track conveys a sense of solidarity and hope. SERIOUS BLACK mange to express what everyone wishes for, being together again and rocking without worries.

    From the bands upcoming album Vengeance Is Mine’ set to drop 25th February 2022. Being called the ‘Album Of Our Life’ hits the nail on the head in several aspects. On the one hand, the international power metal band surrounding bassist and founder Mario Lochert has succeeded in creating what is probably the most powerful and imaginative work of their career so far, with loads of great guitar riffs, grooving rhythms and anthemic melodies. On the other hand, the album’s lyrics venture into territories previously uncharted by the band.

    Lochert comments “This time, I have allowed more insights into my emotions and private life than ever before, i.e. into how I think, how I feel, how I am, and how difficult it can be to keep a band going when you aren’t well yourself. The lyrics on ‘Vengeance Is Mine’ reflect the past four or five years. This, of course, had an impact on the songwriting, which has become even more intense and emotional.”

    In addition to the private insight of the band’s soul, another new aspect came into play: Nikola Mijić, a powerful vocalist from Serbia, has recently become the front man of the band. Mijić is the successor to Urban Breed, who separated from the band in spring 2021. “Nikola is a very talented and experienced singer,Lochert reports proudly.

    So has at last come together what belongs together – in Serious Black: Nikola Mijić’s expressive timbre, the rapid riffs and hooks of the guitarists Dominik Sebastian and Bob Katsionis, the driving grooves of drummer Ramy Ali with bassist and producer Mario Lochert. Due to these elements and on top the collective diverse songwriting, ‘Vengeance Is Mine’ has turned into a prime example of a deeply melodic and at the same time powerfully dynamic power metal album.

    Vengenance Is Mine” was produced and mixed by Lochert at his Serious Black Studio in Kirchseeon. Guitars were recorded by Dominik Sebastian at his own studio and all orchestral arrangements and keyboards done by Bob Katsionis in Greece.
