Awaken the Masses
With themes like mortality and social realism they criticize life itself. As middle aged men, they write about the dissapointments in life. Their sound creates an impression of a dystopian landscape in the listeners imagination. You can feel the fear of death, to lose what you have created and to miss the opportunities in life.
Awaken the Masses is the first single to be released from their upcoming album, Skullparade, with almost the same name as the band.
Skull Parade are driven by their desire to produce exceptional and enduring works. At their best they are imaginative, expressive and innovative – at their worst they are self-indulgent, melodramatic and narcissistic. They don’t give any answers to the fears they have, and will not provide any comfort for the listener. There are plenty of bands and artists with uplifting music. Skull Parade is not one of them. Skull Parade is something different.
Skull Parade was signed to Rexius Records early 2017.
“With Skull Parade, we get a band that permeates the vision we have as a label. To sign artists who not necessarily fit in somewhere else and have an edge, not solely based on commercial viability. We try to focus on the people we like and makes good music. In this case we have signed four great musicians who could have been our dads.” – Magnus Torstensson, Rexius Records.
Skull Parade consists of Erik Anell – vocals, Magnus Högdahl – Guitars, Magnus Lind – Bass, Stefan Alm – Drums
