The Swiss power-metal-band PERTNESS is active since 1993 and they have recorded two demos and two studio-albums (both released via Karthago
Records) since then. Especially their debut “Seven Times Eternity”
(2008) had a lot of positive reviews. We are happy to welcome PERTNESS at Pure Steel Records!
Two years after their second album “From the Beginning to the End” the band presents their next album “Frozen Time”, which features a fat production and lots of innovative ideas. Sometimes the guitars even sound like melodic death-metal, because the sound is rather brutal and powerful. But they still give you the typical power-metal flair. This new CD also offers you harmonic twin-guitars, double-bass drumming and Tom Schluchter’s powerful, rather deep vocals. Some of the songs even contain some folklore-harmonies which are combined very well with the basic power-metal sound (“Cold Wind of Death”, “I Sold my Remorse”, “Lost in Time”). The song “The Star of the County Down” sounds even more like a metallic version of some Irish folk-song.
All fans of innovative and varied metal with traditional influences will be thrilled by this new album!
