Suddenlash is a Soundtrack Symphonic Metal Band from Barcelona. Our style is based on a lyric, very personal, lead female voice together with dense orchestrations and heavy obstinated rythms. Our songs speak of epic stories and about self conciensceness as well. Emotion is for sure our main goal.
Our intent, of course, is to add something new to a probably already overloaded showcase of proposals. We love Metal. We are metallers! And nevertheless we are not ashamed at all if we incorporate some "touches" apparently more related with other musical styles (Folk, Classical, Electronic...). We like dense orchestrations and piano arpeggios, along with choirs and power chords. In fact, we believe that putting violins and electric guitars side by side has been one of the finest achievements throughout music history.
Music has to be touching –when the work of art is devoid of emotion, it somehow fails its most important goal. Suddenlash is trying hard on that way. Lyrics have to be connected with personal experiences, melodies and harmonies must be intimately mingled with those feelings, and last but not least, human voice is meant to be the ultimate moving vehicle for all that put together.
Suddenlash really wishes our music pleases you. If that is so, we hope to perform for you in the next future. From you comes our energy and our very raison d'être.

Album Reviews & Interviews:
Review by Musicagen.com:
“A studio album may impact, surprise, or just be pleasant, but very few are really able to move, to reach deep inside the listener. This is precisely what happens with Suddenlash’s first CD, Soul’s Revenge.”
“()... their works go much further than what we usually label as “Symphonic Metal”. The songs are truly well built, and both David’s orchestral knowledge and Lidia’s vocal exquisiteness achieve real creative originality throughout the disc.”
Review by Tarrazu.wordpress.com:
“Perhaps what is most noteworthy in “Soul’s Revenge” is the emotional quality that is developed all over the work. Suddenlash immerses us in a complete musical adventure.”
“()... Suddenlash -with “Soul’s Revenge”- shows a new card against which most bands can’t play at all. It excels because of their unique features that make a difference inside the overpopulated metal scene. ()... In Suddenlash we find a real, consistent Soundtrack Symphonic Metal. It is even possible that the Spanish band is defining the genre.”
“The Spanish band was one of the year’s most important revelations. Suddenlash merges different styles derived from classical music inside a Metal frame and so the band brought us a new style of cinematic Metal, but very far from what Luca Turilli is making, thus it was quite a surprise for everybody.”
