Currently hitting the streets with their recent release The Lovebites EP, all girl Japanese heavy metal group, Lovebites have now finished work on their highly anticipated first full album, Awakening From Abyss. Lovebites consist of 5 magnificent and talented women who are already making a name for themselves across the globe and we can confirm that the US edition of the album will be available via Sliptrick Records on October 25th on CD and digital formats.
The highly renowned European engineering team of Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila, who worked on The Lovebites EP, returned for Awakening From Abyss and once again, the album was mixed and mastered at the legendary Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland. Expect the bar to be raised even further with this release which promises even greater dynamics in the sound.
The album’s cover features artwork by David Lopez Gómes, an acclaimed and well-known artist. His work has featured in the German metal band Helloween’s 30th anniversary book “Hellbook” and the groups best of album, “Sweet seductions”. The Awakening From Abyss cover features a goddess standing on the ruins of a destroyed world preparing to give birth to a new world which both visualize and further emphasize the concept of the album.
Along with the new album comes an important change to the band. The very talented lead guitarist and keyboard player Mi-ya, who was a support member and co-composer on The Lovebites EP, is now a permanent member of the band. In other words, Awakening From Abyss brings the 5 girls together, stronger than ever and they have put their heart and soul into their first full length release.
Expect more metal, more speed, more amazing melodies and more emotion as Lovebites prepare to go global and cement their name on the worldwide metal scene.
