Known for his bipolar vocal ability, Benea Reach frontman Ilkka Volume veers memorably from low belly-aching screams through to high manic shrieks â€” almost as if the band had a dual-vocal setup. He's excited about the new record, and can't wait for it to be heardâ€¦
"Well, it's our third and, in my eyes, the best yet," he states. "Having it released on a label like Spinefarm is great; hopefully, that means it'll reach a lot more people â€” they'll hear the music, check us out live, enjoy it all and spread the word!
"Heavy rock is a pretty busy genre at the moment, but I really think people will find something a bit different about us and want to discover more â€” and, if they can start with this new record, that'd be perfect."
The video for Cd's first single, "The Mountain", shot in Norway, has been directed and animated by U.K.-based artist and filmmaker Robin Fuller.
Benea Reach is currently in the planning stages of a full U.K. tour for 2013; European festival appearances are also being lined up.
