Pentral, the up-and-coming Brazilian hard rock band, has been teasing its long-awaited debut album since November, by sharing one-minute teaser clips recorded in the studio — every week — and now, the all-new record, “What Lies Ahead of Us,” is scheduled to be released on May 7th.
The first single “Silent Trees” will be out on March 5h.
Pentral stands for Spirit in Latin, which indicates the kind of message this band tries to inspire – the need to trabnscend this material world through the power of music, without losing connection with reality. Pentral comes from Brazil, more precisely from the North, where the Amazon forest is located.
The band’s lineup-consisting of brothers Victor Lima (vocals, guitars) and Vagner Lima (drums), and Joe Ferry (Bass) – has never changed. They’ve been working together on past projects and now got together once again for their debut album.
As a Brazilian heavy power trio, their music mixes many sorts of global influences and tries to honor Brazilian groove and unique harmonies, progressive rock, metal music, atmosphere, and melody at the same time, inspired by Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles, Genesis, Rush, The Police, Van Halen, Yes, King Crimson, Living Colour, King’s X, among others.
“What Lies Ahead Of Us” sums up the years of experimentation throughout such parallel universes and the search for human awareness of the environment, peace, and equality.
