MANIMAL shares album details & brand new song

Three years since their latest and highly acclaimed album, Purgatorio, Gothenburg metal force MANIMAL has announced to return with a brand new studio record this Fall! "Armageddon" is slated for a release on October 8, 2021.

Despite the band‘s loyalty to traditional heavy metal influences, "Purgatorio" was a prime example of modern and trend-setting power metal characterised by musical enthusiasm, exceptional talent and new ideas. As expected of a band that claims Judas Priest, King Diamond and Queensrÿche as major influences on their sound since Day 1, MANIMAL’s new record is a high energy, in-your-face salute to the music that inspired them over the past 20 years.

But calling MANIMAL "just" a power metal band, however, is way off the mark according to vocalist Samuel Nyman. "We are more than power metal. It was our label that put Manimal into the power metal category with our first album, and we understand that completely because they had to put us in a genre to guide people. Power metal for me are bands like Helloween, Gamma Ray and Stratovarius; they have more up-tempo songs, more vocal harmonies. Sure, Manimal does have power metal elements but we're not pure power metal. There is more to us than that and I think the new album is perfect example of that."

Each single marked for the release of "Armageddon" proves that. After MANIMAL shared a first album sneak peak with the previously- released single "Forged In Metal", today the Swedish four- piece unleashed a brand new song, the epic album closing track "The Inevitable End"!

"The song represents the more melodic side of Manimal," Nyman reveals, "with strong harmonies and a catchy chorus.” Check out the new MANIMAL single right below.

"Armageddon" will be available as LP, CD and Digital formats on October 8, 2021 through AFM Records, the pre-sale has just started at - get a copy here:
