SCELERATA is a very well known and popular band in the Brazilian Metal scene for over
a decade now. "THE SNIPER" is the bands newest release and they are ready to spread their
Metal to the rest of the world. SCELERATA plays a very well advanced form of
Progressive Metal merged with Power Metal. These guys melt these two style together with
such ease, it's almost as if they invented this sound. The music is very well constructed with
lots of depth and many levels of intricate guitar work. These are where a lot of the
Progressive Metal influences come into play, while the faster more crystal clean guitar work
is where the Power Metal elements shine. The guitars have a very polished Speed Metal
vibe, especially in the faster more aggressive parts. The vocals are where a lot of the Power
Metal comes in, with the clean, higher pitch and melodic vocals. I could see these guys
being huge in the mid 80's when the Traditional Metal bands were ruling the airwaves. This
is a must for fans of IRON MAIDEN, DIO, BLIND GUARDIAN, RHAPSODY & just
about most of the other bands that are on the NIGHTMARE RECORDS roster.
SCELERATA is one truly amazing Power / Progressive Metal band and just keeps getting
better with each new album they release! One of the best bands playing the music of their
genre! Check these guys out!!!
