Israeli progressive metal outfit SUBTERRANEAN MASQUERADE this week unveils the details for their anxiously awaited new album, Mountain Fever. The band‘s fourth LP, and sixth overall release, marks the band‘s first record to see release through their new label home, Sensory Records, who this week unveils the album‘s cover art, track listing, and more.
SUBTERRANEAN MASQUERADE, which until recently was considered a cult studio project for fine taste followers, has transformed over the last two years into an exciting, colorful live act, mixing the traditions of heavy metal together with the aesthetics of world music performance, spiritual punk, and pure rock. Praised by music journalists all over Europe and beyond, the band has taken over the stages, showcasing a distinctly audacious execution of their complex songwriting while maintaining an almost magical grip on their audience, reviewed as rave parties for metalheads.
Led by guitarist Tomer Pink, SUBTERRANEAN MASQUERADE was previously fronted by Green Carnation vocalist Kjetle Nordhus and Novembers Doom‘s Paul Khur. Having officially revamped the lineup in 2018, the band now features a very tight knit, fully group of musicians handpicked from the upper echelons of Israel‘s prog scene. Mountain Fever is the band‘s first album to be created by this expansive seven-member lineup.
