As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Finnish vocalists Noora Louhimo (Battle Beast) and Netta Laurenne (Smackbound) have teamed up for an album on Frontiers Music Srl. Laurenne/Louhimo’s debut album, “The Reckoning”, will be released on July 9, 2021 on CD/LP/Digital.
A first taste of the album is now available through the music video for “Bitch Fire”, featuring a guest guitar solo by Samy Elbanna from Lost Society.
“With this album, I wanted to capture the essence of classic heavy metal and hard rock and combine it with great melodies and lyrics that have value. It was clear from the beginning, having two strong voices on the album, that this album was going to be full of power, energy, attitude and emotion. I envisioned it lovingly kicking everyone’s ass, my own included, and I think it does just that. It’s pushing us to do better and evolve, yet having great empathy towards the struggles we all face as humans,” says Netta Laurenne.
Adds Frontiers President/Head of A&R Serafino Perugino, “I believe Netta is a truly gifted and talented artist and this is one of a few records besides Smackbound that we will start a fruitful creative and artistic cooperation with her on. To pair her with Noora, who literally blows everyone away with her smashing vocals in not only her main band Battle Beast, but also on Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall and Heart Healer records, is incredibly exciting and an honor.”
