First single from Averlanche’s upcoming debut album.
The album (still untitled) will be released later in 2020.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Hiili Hiilesmaa
Recorded at Studio Watercastle by Arttu Sarvanne in 2019
Helsinki based 2017 founded melodic metal band Averlanche has released their
first single “The Sounds of Insomnia” from the upcoming debut album.
Averlanche combines catchy melodies with beautiful female vocals. Their sound is influenced by
Finnish heavy metal music from the 90's and early 2000's.
Vocalist Rebecca Spörl is originally from Germany, where she lived until she moved to Finland in 2014.
"I come from a small village called Pottenstein and moved to Finland
five years ago to start a metal band. I found an announcement that a
band was looking for a singer. After travelling over 100 km to audition
I got the job. When we started having rehearsals with Averlanche it felt
like everything just fell into place.
The Sounds of Insomnia is the first song we ever played together,
so it is very important to me personally." Rebecca comments.
The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Hiili Hiilesmaa who has
with bands like HIM, Moonspell, Sentenced and Apocalyptica. It was
recorded at Studio Watercastle by Arttu Sarvanne in fall 2019.
Averlanche's keyboardist Antti Kopra talks about the album: "This first
album came together naturally while playing and growing together as a
band for the last couple of years. As a composer it has always been
important to me to find the core of a song and then shape the music
towards that direction. I personally like melodic music with a catchy
chorus and a story to tell. That shows in our songs as well. For our
debut album we selected 10 easily approachable songs and the single The
Sounds of Insomnia paints a good picture of the album's musical
narrative - while not giving away the whole story."
A VERY BRIEF HISTORY
Averlanche was founded in Helsinki, Finland, in early 2017. During
the same year they recorded their first demo “The Machinery of Life”.
After the release of the demo and the first few gigs it was time to
record their first full length album. They wanted to have an experienced
producer to guarantee the best result so they contacted Hiili Hiilesmaa
who suggested that they should record the album in Punkalaidun with
Arttu Sarvanne. The band spent 12 days in the beautiful countryside of
Finland and recorded 10 songs for the upcoming album.
