Spoil Engine‘s new studio album »Renaissance Noire« shows that their unique style survived all of the changes the band went through. As if the band was feeding on those tumultuous years, they seem reborn. They fought back, and there’s no way around these 10 pure modern metal tracks. Expect the usual punchy riffs, crushing grooves and big sing-along choruses. Only this time it’s harder than ever before, darker than ever before, and more diverse. Everyone went all in.
“We decided to put the past behind us once and for all, and to use our anger & frustration to write the heaviest album we could possibly write. So for the past year we solely concentrated all our focus & attention on the new record. Taking a break from the road gave us the freedom to let this monster grow without any time pressure. We’re finally back, and it feels damn great!”guitarist & main songwriter Steven Sanders
Known as hard-working DIY maniacs, using their individual talents to get their vision across, SPOIL ENGINE have always colaborated with top notch artists & musicians to add some additional flavor to their albums.
With drummer Matthijs running his own studio and bassist Davy knowing exactly where to take the sound of this album, the band recorded everything themselves, with award-winning producer/engineer Henrik Udd (ARCHITECTS, BRING ME THE HORIZON) taking care of the mix of the album. It sounds massive, while keeping it vivid with an almost live feel.
Singer Iris is a professional vocal coach in daily life and surely knows how to handle her wide range of grunts, screams, shouts and clean vocals. Still the band is honored to have special guest Jeff Walker (CARCASS) adding his personal touch to one of the songs.
“The album title obviously stands for our rebirth out of the dark, and the music is a big fuck-off to all the bullshit we had to deal with. Working with people like this have resulted in a right-in-your-face sounding record. Visually, the ink illustrations totally match my philosophy behind the lyrics. The themes range from social retrospectives to fighting my personal demons.”Iris Goessens
After multiple international appearances on Wacken Open Air, Graspop, Pukkelpop, Midi China, directly supporting and touring with bands such as MEGADETH, MOTORHEAD, PAPA ROACH, IN FLAMES, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, PRONG, the band is ready to pick up where they left.
»Renaissance Noire« will be released on November 15th via Arising Empire.
