Band Bio 2007:
After releasing their last album 'Command To Charge' in the spring of 2005 and following it up with triumphant shows at prestigious European summer festivals like Wacken Open Air (GER), Summer Breeze (GER), Metal Camp (SLO), Bloodstock (UK) and Metalmania (PL), long time former band member Marcel Schoenen re-joined the band in September 2005 after a one year break. Once again Marcel, being also the main man responsible for the lyrics and clean vocals, brought back much of the folk influence heard on the previous albums that are an integral part of the SuidAkrA sound.
Starting fresh in 2006 with the 'Emprise To Avalon' (2002) and 'Signs for the Fallen' (2003) line-up, SuidAkrA are ready to stake their claims once again in the world of metal with their 8th upcoming studio album, 'Caledonia'. While 'Command To Charge' was a new adventure for SuidAkrA, 'Caledonia' once again returns to the roots of an inspired, well-balanced mixture of raw death metal, plenty of harmonies, a mesmerizing pagan/folk atmosphere and bombastic catchy heavy metal. SuidAkrA's ability to blend these various sounds into a hard, fast-paced yet intricate song structure is what really sets them apart from the rest. Their variations prove that melody and brutality can be worked together to provide a unique experience for the listener.
Imagine 'Caledonia' as a sonic guide through the fierce ancient Scottish highlands. A purely enchanted tragedy is quite effective when combined with an aggressive soundtrack, intermezzo acoustic pieces, highly varied vocals and literate, narrative anthems. Also reoccurring are the haunting sounds of bagpipes, a traditional instrument used by Scots for many generations. The idea behind the lyrical concept of 'Caledonia' is to fathom the mystical side of the tribe of the Picts (the natives of ancient Scotland), their war against the attacking Roman Empire and the co-incidence of two completely different worlds. The story's main focus is the spiritual and cultural aspects when these two worlds collide.
Well-known Belgian artist Kris Verwimp (Arch Enemy, Immortal, Thyrfing, etc.) once again managed to suitably capture the essence of the storyline with an amazing artwork design.
SuidAkrA will promote this historic release live on stage throughout Europe and beyond. You can be assured that 'Caledonia' will conquer the attention of a new, larger audience for this distinguished band
