Eclipse Debut “Bleed And Scream” Music Video
July 25, 2012
Swedish hard rockers Eclipse are back after a long awaited return. Following their critically acclaimed 2008 album ‘Are You Ready to Rock’ the rockers will be releasing ‘Bleed & Scream’ on August 24th (August 28th in North America) through Frontiers Records. A music video for the album’s title-track and first single has now been posted online.
The band gained a solid reputation and a steady following with ‘Are You Ready to Rock’, an album that placed on the SleazeRoxx.com Top 10 of 2008 chart, that took their melodic hard rock roots in a more contemporary direction. Besides this, they enjoyed the success of their involvement with the W.E.T. project that followed in 2009 which was produced by frontman Erik Martensson and included the writing skills of Martensson/Magnus Henriksson whose song “Brothers In Arms” (originally an Eclipse track) was voted as the best song of the year in the 2009 Melrock awards. A short tour followed which included an appearance at Firefest and as an opening act for Deep Purple.
Since then, singer Erik Martensson has been busy producing and writing a number of successful songs and records for such artists as W.E.T, Toby Hitchcock, Giant, and Jimi Jamison just to name a few. This has gained him a reputation as one of the top producers/songwriters in the genre today. In 2011 Eclipse teamed up again to write what was to become their latest effort ‘Bleed & Scream’. The bar was set high and the initial goal was to top their latest album.
“We knew we had to do everything better on this album. If we couldn’t have achieved that we never would have released it! But boy did it turn out well! When it was taking shape we realized this was to be a monster of an album!” says guitarist Magnus Henriksson. “Every song has qualities as a single. Erik’s vocals are way better than ever. The guitar sound is just awesome! The whole production is just in your face. It has something for everyone in it! We worked so hard at making this record that it drove us nearly nuts and made us wanna scream, but now it’s your turn to bleed & scream!”
