Texas Melodic Metal newcomers SHATTERED SUN are the first signing from Breaking Bands LLC and are currently working on their upcoming, currently untitled album. Meanwhile, the band wants to give fans a taste of what they can look forward to.
‘Hope Within Hatred’ portrays that even within moments of negativity and oppression, one can find the positive and make their own way. “When I wrote this song it seemed like my life was in a downward spiral. I was holding on to a lot of negativity and people who were truly bad for my future,” states vocalist Marcos Leal. “For some reason I could never see past this and always held on and avoided change. ‘Hope Within Hatred’ is the flip side of that, about having your own voice, embracing change and facing the ugly truth about things.”
‘Hope Within Hatred’, as well as the entire upcoming album, is produced by Robert Beltran of Precision Studio, LLC in Corpus Christi, TX. In addition to production from Robert, SHATTERED SUN also credits Spineshank guitarist Mike Sarkisyan with assisting with pre-production duties and general consultation. The band greatly appreciates the work put in by both Mike Sarkisyan and Robert Beltran.
“We’ve been working with Rob Beltran for a while now and he’s definitely become more than just our producer. To us, he’s family and at times feels like a seventh member of the band. In addition, we’ve learned a lot from Mike Sarkisyan through our early touring days and keep in contact with him still to this day,” adds Marcos.
Stay tuned for in-studio videos chronicling SHATTERED SUN’s recording experience, put together by their good friend Steve Garcia.
