Mexico’s metal juggernauts CERBERUS will release their new album, FIRE!, on July 12th. Today, the band has revealed the record’s latest single, a metal ballad called “Last Dance,” via a music video that can be viewed now.
Commenting on the new single, Paul Wrath says, “5 years have passed since our debut album ‘Otura Ka’ was released and we haven’t written a ballad since then… so for this album we decided to make it right and we added two ballads to the table! This one has more of a southern vibe, but it was always a side we wanted to explore and we’re really happy the way it turned out.”
With unrelenting force and pure dedication to their craft, CERBERUS has created a record that was made to melt faces as heard on their debut single “The Ending.” That’s just a taste though, as the band spares no one over the course of the record’s 12 high-octane tracks that only briefly slow down for anthemic ballads like “Last Dance.”
“This album means a lot to us, our original drummer got back in the band but at the same time our rhythm guitar player quitted, so we had mixed feelings throughout the recording, still we’re super proud the way it came out, we had the opportunity to work with people we’ve always admired so much! So that was definitely a dream came true. We knew we needed the best team for working on the best music we’ve done so far, so we knew we needed to be the best performers we could as well, so we putted our 110% in every aspect of the recording of this album for it to be the best we could deliver.” – Paul Wrath on the creation of FIRE!
FIRE! was recorded at Twilight Sound Studios by Paul Wrath, Akashsa Sound Laby in Mexico City by Güido Laris and El Cielo Recording Studio in Monterrey by Jim Monti (Metallica, Korn, Slipknot). The record was mixed by 5 time Grammy Award winning producer Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Halestorm, In Flames) and mastered at Sterling Sound by Ted Jensen (Pantera, Deftones, Slipknot).
Formed by Paul Wrath at the age of 15, CERBERUS found their footing in 20014 with release of their critically acclaimed album Otura Ka, that received rave reviews from publications like Rolling Stone (Mexico). Over the next few years the band quickly became one of Mexico’s biggest metal acts with several singles and shows with the likes of Metallica, HIM, Steel Panther and KnotFest Mexico among others. Now armed with their most explosive record to date, there’s no stopping them. Join the CERBERUS ORDER!
