We’ve teamed up with the incredible Renegade Twelve from Suffolk in the UK for an exclusive track-by-track of their debut album which releases in just two days! Renegade Twelve’s self-titled debut seeks to establish their brand of melodic metal they’ve been refining since they began in 2014. This quintet pull from many sensational bands such as Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage and more – they’ve read the book on metal and they’re ready to punch back.
Having toured extensively through 2016, the band will release Renegade Twelve, their debut album on the 27th of January. Here’s what they had to say about the ten tracks on the album.
Mad Max is a furious and intricate piece of music that details the horror and strain that an apocalyptic wasteland has on the normal man.
Vanity is upbeat, angry and quick-fire, this song goes out to the long and strenuous nights tiring away in the nightclub trying to fit in, when really all you have to do is be yourself.
Heroes Of Mine is our first single. It’s an uplifting and catchy track that’s very vocal and touches on the typical and not so typical heroes of modern day society.
Bipolar has a moody and dark vibe, this is a story of when friendship and respect have been sacrificed for the allure of possible fame and fortune.
This Town is the perfect blend of groove metal and strong impact lyrics describing the harrowing ordeal an innocent man needs to go through in order to prove his innocence in a court trial involving police incompetence and corruption beyond belief.
War Plane is metaphorical and World War 2 inspired. This dynamic track provides the story of the skies blending haunting guitar and piano parts with a powerful vocal.
Somme jumps straight into the trenches of World War 1. A fictitious piece that depicts a vicious and blood thirsty battle. Do you survive or are you simply an army of ghosts by the last chorus?
Yeah boi is an absolute fun fest! Ridiculously drop tuned guitars, massive pinch harmonics and head jolting grooves. No lyrics needed in this song!
MFC is a little more quirky. This track nine song abbreviation stands for ‘M*ther F*cking Champion’ and describes the cloud 9 feeling that everyone goes through when things are playing out just the way you wanted them too.
Bill & Chief is the epic story of a generals drunken cowardice and Wild Bill’s bravery, death, resurrection, and reform thanks to an Indian Chief. No punches pulled for this 9 minute demonstration of musical song writing ability and instrumental technique from Renegade Twelve.
This album certainly promises to be a huge collection of tracks from Renegade Twelve preparing to launch them into the upper echelons of metal society. Don’t miss out on it! The album releases this Friday, 27th January and can be pre-ordered here.
