Serious Black

What melodic power metal band SERIOUS BLACK has achieved in less than three years of band history and with only two albums under their belts, is extraordinary. The band, consisting of musicians from bands such as Firewind, Rhapsody, Tad Morose, Edenbridge, Visions of Atlantis and Dreamscape, has positioned itself directly among the leading formations of their genre. Tours with HammerFall and Gamma Ray made the fanbase grow rapidly and with the first headlining tour in September 2016 SERIOUS BLACK impressively demonstrated that they are a real live force! Inspired by the consistently euphoric reactions of fans and the media alike, the band will already release its third studio album, titled "Magic", which will be available at the end of August. The album was mixed by Michael „Spike“ Streefkerk (Def Leppard) and mastered by Mikka Jussila (Finnvox Studios). SERIOUS BLACK’s vision for “Magic” was to create a diverse, heavy, melodic album with more focus on organic feel and a more natural sound than many productions these days offer.

 “Magic” sees SERIOUS BLACK reach the peak of their creativity and takes the listener on a journey through a world of mystery. A 14 songs strong jewel case CD marks the “basic” album, while the 2CD Digipak comes with a bonus CD (”Live In Atlanta”) and the ltd. “Witch Board” Box Set even includes an additional Unplugged CD. Of course “Magic” is also available on (black and white) Vinyl. After the launch of the album, SERIOUS BLACK will hit the road once more – again as headliner and this time supported by special guest and AFM labelmate Herman Frank.

“Magic” is our first attempt of a concept album”, the band states. The story was created by vocalist Urban breed, who introduces the listener to Mr. Nightmist, a figure, through generations, shrouded in mystery and legend.
The follow-up to the chartbreaking “Mirrorworld” (2016) and “As Daylight Breaks” albums will be released on August 25th and it’s safe to say that fans of high class melodic metal will be amazed by the magic SERIOUS BLACK come up with this time.
