Leander Rising To Release New Self-Titled Album

Budapest act Leander Rising is set to release the band's self-titled album digitally on July 17th on Sony Music. The following press release was also issued:

"Their 14 song self-titled debut album heads straight for the adrenal gland focusing on melody coupled with passionate fury, combining blends of brutal riffs and punishing breakdowns with huge anthemic and driving melodies for an original sound that is all their own. Recorded in Hungary and mixed and mastered in Sweden by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, God Forbid, Katatonia, Soilwork, Kreator), with artwork by Robert Borbas (Metallica, Suicide Silence, Bring Me The Horizon) and a guest appearance by Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) on the track 'Six Feet Under.'

"Originally a solo project for its namesake Leander Köteles, but his first video for the song Bound To Belong created an internet buzz throughout Hungary and caught the attention of Attila Vörös, a young and well-known guitarist, who has also toured worldwide with Seattle metal band Nevermore, Attila reached out to Leander via e-mail and their collaboration began. In the beginning Attila only came on to do some guest solos but as time went on they found their true sound was together.

"While Attila was touring in the US with Nevermore, Leander decided to cover and put his spin on Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance,' which became the most viewed and successful video in the project's history at that time, incorporating Hungarian Dances from Brahms, his version will be the special bonus track on the upcoming US release.

"Without a doubt the diversity in their sound will gain them fans across the metal, hardcore and rock scenes as well as the ability to bring both sexes together in the pit. A new wave of Hungarian metal is coming and its name is Leander Rising."
