While hailing from South America, the band’s sound is more akin to a different part of the globe, specifically, the early years of the revered Gothenburg sound emanating from Sweden and popularized by bands like Dark Tranquility, Soilwork, In Flames, and the like.
Based in the city of Curitiba, Sculptor was founded in 2015, The band debuted with the single “Oblivion,” which became a blueprint for the songs that would comprise their debut album, “Untold Secrets”.
“Untold Secrets” was recorded at the band’s studio in Curitiba, produced by Vinne and Rick, and mixed by Linus Corneliusson at Fascination Street Studios located, appropriately enough, in Sweden.
“The name “Sculptor” means that we are the sculptors of our lives, we can shape them and transform them into what we want. The lyrics also address this subject and how everything we do impacts our world,” says the band.
“Untold Secrets” showcases the complex influences the musicians acquired through their previous musical projects. For the uninitiated, once again, the band’s style can be described as musically akin to early era albums from Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Soilwork, and Tiamat.
For melodic death metal fans and metal fans in general, Sculptor are a band to keep an eye on!
