With the exception of perhaps Moonspell, Portugal isn’t necessarily well known in the States for it’s metal scene, but there’s a healthy and vibrant metal scene there. Progressive metalcore band Borderlands, who formed in Lisbon in 2012, have released an EP and a single so far, and on June 10th, the band will release their full-length album, Voice of the Voiceless.
The band are premiering the first video from the upcoming album, “Children of the Sun,” with us today. It’s a high quality video that mixes performance with some animation that looks like it’s straight out of a video game and should definitely expand their reach beyond Europe. Here’s what the band’s new vocalist, Rui Martins, says about Voice of the Voiceless:
This album is definitely stepping up our game, we’ve put a lot of effort into this and hope that everyone enjoys it and loves it as much as we do.
