Munich’s Backstage will host four amazing bands on the 25th of february 2022. It will be blast!
In their South American homeland, the Goth-Death metallers Semblant are undoubtedly one of the most important and successful representatives of hard rock and are praised by the Brazilian media as one of the first vampire metal formations in the country. Led by two voices, the fantastic singer Mizuho Lin and her male counterpart Sergio Mazul, Semblant have made a name for themselves across the country’s borders with their mix of Goth and Melodic Death Metal. In April 2020 they will come to Munich with their third album “Obscura”.
In 2006, singer Sergio Mazul and keyboardist J. Augusto founded the Goth metal band Semblant in the 2 million city of Curitiba. The first years were marked by countless changes in musicians. Even after the release of the first album “Last Night Of Mortality” (2010) there were changes again. The singer Katia Shakath left the band. But with the arrival of the new Frontlady Mizuho Lin, a decisive step for the future was made. After numerous concerts all over Brazil, the septet produced “Lunar Manifesto” (2014), an album that was highly praised in the international metal scene. A trademark of the band is the extremely varied vocals. While the classically trained singer Mizuho Lin provides angelic vocal melodies, her colleague Sergio Mazul masters all genre facets from growling to aggressive Keif vocals to clean vocals. The third album by Semblant is finally due to be released in spring 2020. The fans had to wait a whole six years for a successor to “Lunar Manifesto”. With “Obscura” the band now wants to finally conquer the world and demonstrate their live qualities with a big tour. Friends of bands like Nightwish, Lacuna Coil or Evanescence should have a lot of fun with Semblant.
As I May is a four-piece modern melodic metal band from Mikkeli, Finland, formed in 2016. The group now consists of Tipi Nokelainen (vocals and bass), Lasse Hiltunen (scream vocals and guitar), Jani Valhola (backup vocals and guitars) and Marko Korhonen (drums).
As I May has since started to quickly gain ground in the Finnish heavy metal scene. The music’s soul lies within catchy melodies and big choruses as they combine modern elements, yet keeping the focus on the heavier side.
Structural is a melodic/technical death metal band, Formed in 2015 by guitarists Shani Friedman & Tamir Vered, vocalist Nadav Zaidman and drummer Yahel Goldstein. After several line-up changes, the band now features Shani Friedman and Tomer Dembinsky (Guitars), Nadav Zaidman (Vocals), KoƦen Ɇsco (Bass) and Vadim Sergyenko (Drums).
Motivated by the ambition to create its own unique voice, Structural has been working for three years on soldering the right combination of fierce drumming, complex and odd-timed modern riffs along side communicative melodies, led by utterly ruthless vocals. In order to achieve a relentless outcome, the group turned to producer Alex Zvulun in august of 2016 and started working on their debut album “Metacognition”, which has been released on June 3rd 2018.
Beneath My Sins is a French symphonic metal band created in December 2015 by the guitarist Clement Botz and the singer Emma Elvaston.
Former members of the band Evolvent, they have together taken their first steps in the metal scene and in the musical composition. In March 2017, Beneath my Sins released its first album “Valkyries of Modern Times”, promoted during shows in Belgium with the band Skeptical Minds and during two European tours shared with the Russian thrash metal band, Pokerface . Quickly perceived as the emerging symphonic metal band of the French scene, Beneath my sins had the opportunity to tour with the famous Canadian band Kobra And the Lotus during their stay in France in June 2018 and Imperial Age in 2019. In September 2018, the band got in contact with Fabio D’Amore, bassist from Serenity. After a few meetings and discussions they all agreed that he would provides his services as a producer to the band. Thanks to this collaboration, the band was able to record under professional conditions and to work with famous names of the music business. Many talented guests such as Matteo Sisti from Eluveitie, Melissa Bonny from Ad Infinitum, Michele Guaitoli from Temperance and Visions of Atlantis and Fabio Lethien Polo from Elvenking also joined the ship for one or more songs.
