SpiralArms rose from the ashes of millennial bands Systematic, Forbidden and Man Made God. This sextet has one mission. That mission is to save today’s music scene by bringing true heavy melodic rock to the forefront. And they plan on doing this with Freedom.
Freedom‘s down-to-earth and very dynamic production also deserves a mention. The album oozes a liveliness, which many other bands tend to lose in the studio. “We always work at the studio as a full band,” says Locicero. “The basic tracks of the new album were recorded in just about 16 hours, the rest was recorded by and by, but always in the same spirit. From the beginning, we never lost sight of our vision and that special flair which our new songs have.”
Just like rock fans shouldn’t lose sight of SprialArms if they don’t want to miss one of the hottest contemporary rock acts. Freedom will cut its own path, that’s for sure, particularly since SpiralArms can’t wait to tour on these shores: “We hope to be able to come to Europe next spring at the latest. We haven’t forgotten the positive reactions to our show at the 2007 Graspop, where we were the only band without a record deal. That’s why we can hardly wait to play in Europe again.”
