Release: 22 April 2022
Fuel up, start your engines and get ready to Power Through! The debut album from the classic skate punk metal act SCARLATA, is a guitar driven force to be reckoned with.
“The Power Through album is a compilation of songs created between 2017-2021. I am very ecstatic (and relieved) to finally be sharing this self-produced debut album with the music world. This album is dedicated to inspire the listener to discover their craft and live out their passions!”
Located in Boulder, Colorado, SCARLATA, a self-taught instrumentalist, produces dynamic tracks that show off a wealth of heavy and soaring styles. Song writing began in earnest back in 2016 and the summer of 2020 saw the release of the debut EP Metal-Baby fully self-produced. Predominantly instrumental, the new album delivers both the hard-hitting and fast-paced, as well as soaring ballad elements. “Ch’i Ling’s Spell” kicks off Power Through diving into complex guitar melodies and energetic rhythms. A tranquil mood manifests in the opening of “Fruition of Justice”, before exploding into heavy distortion. The title track is a fusion of melodic guitars, distortion and experimentation. The changing pace produces a darker sound, showing off further versatility of SCARLATA’s creativity.
Power Through combines the thrill and impact of punk, with groove rhythms and intricate melodies; it’s an energising record. SCARLATA seeks to inspire the listener towards their own passions and inner callings, Power Through is an epic passion project.
