Hevilan is back with new album ‘Symphony of Good and Evil’ available now
The legendary heavy prog band symphonic metal is back with their new album, ‘Symphony of Good and Evil’, released worldwide by Brutal Records. Hevilan presents a conceptual disc, based on the idea of the conflict between good and evil within the human being. The songs bring the weight and melody characteristic of the band.
“This release is a feeling of relief, of work accomplished, especially after the long gestation period of this album; and of euphoria, in being able to share with our fans and friends from all over the world, a new work of the band, so expected and desired. Work that gave us a lot of work; blood, sweat and tears, nights and days of recording in our home studios and at the Loud Factory; discussions about the best mix; with you “, emphasizes guitarist Johnny Moraes.
There are 7 songs on 12 tracks in a little over 50 minutes that will certainly please and shock fans of the style. The album also marks the debut of the virtuoso drummer Rafael Dyszy commanding the drumsticks in the recordings. “For the direction of the work, it is a record that will probably please prog metal fans a little more and also, fans who like heavy metal with hints of progressive. Most of the reviews released so far have praised the virtuosity and at the same time, the weight of the songs. It is something that, in a way, was already expected by us, since this album has some of the most difficult songs that we have ever composed and recorded. We hope you like it”, said Johnny.
The disc’s first single, the track “Devil Within (Part 2) – Hammer of Gods” was released as a lyric video and can be watched below.
Formed in 2005 by the idea of guitarist Johnny Moraes (ex- Warrel Dane and Pastore) to create a project with a heavier, melodic and worked style, Hevilan started his career with the release of the EP ‘Blinded Faith’, which served to introduce Hevilan to the public and specialized critics. The debut album ‘The End of Time’ was released in 2013 in Brazil and Japan and in 2015 across Europe, by the label Massacre Records, yielding great success and repercussion in the media.
The album took the success of the Brazilian band to the world in the best possible way, winning more than 60 shows, among them, opening for the band Masterplan, 10 shows opening for the project Edu Falaschi Metal Classics, playing as opening and support band, from the singer, between 2014 and 2016 and the special 10th anniversary show, at the late Gillan´s Inn Rock Bar in São Paulo – which featured the special participation of Vitor Rodrigues and Warrel Dane.
In 2019, the band performed the closing show of the “End of Time tour” at SESC Santo André, with the special participation of Edu Falaschi and the legendary singer Mario Pastore.
