FRENZY about signing with Fighter Records: "When Dave Rotten approached us about releasing the new album with Fighter Records we were excited to work with one of Spain's longest running labels like Fighter Records/ Xtreem Music and sharing label with great bands like Greyhawk, Vhäldemar, Ankhara…"
About the deal with Bickee Music: "It's a pleasure to finally have a great partner in Japan for Frenzy, we really hope that this will help us to get there and share our shred with our japanese fans"
"Of Hoods and Masks", the second full length by the Heavy Metal and Comic Book fanatics band, will contain 9 tracks, including a conceptual story in 7 songs inspired by the Watchmen graphic novel.
This is the track list:
1. One Minute Closer to…
2. The Doomsday
3. Where is the Joke
4. Spectre of Love
6. Betrayal in Cold Blood
7. Fear the Hood
8. Living in Oz (versión de Rick Springfield)
9. Give Me Shred (Or Give Me Death)
The album artwork includes 16 pages of full original illustrations made by comic artist Mike Mora (Megadeth's death by design, Heavy Metal Magazine, The Con-Job), and the graphic design by Javier Pastor (Ciclón, Wild, Rebel…).
The album was recorded & produced by Angel Muñoz at Traste Cero studios during 2020 and put on hold for 2021 because of the traffic accident suffered by guitar player, Luis Pinedo, who is now ready to come back to his shredding duties and tour supporting this fantastic album. "Of Hoods and Masks" is also the final run of Alex Gabasa (Leather Heart) in FRENZY, who had to leave the band after a great job recording the album, being replaced by Billy Banzai.
Release date for FRENZY "Of Hoods and Masks" will be 20th of April 2023 through Fighter Records on 12"LP, CD & Digital formats. In the meantime, check out FRENZY official Facebook site here: www.facebook.com/frenzymetal
