Blackning - ALieNation (Full-Length Album - 2016) - Bandcamp Stream



The Paulista trio Blackning, that after the great debut in "Order of Chaos", 2014, returns frothing fury with his Thrasher "Alienation", his new release, just came out.

"Alienation" is a continuation of the style that the band already showed in "Order of Chaos": Thrash aggressive Metal and well done, with good melodies, high-level changes of pace, and these more extreme touches here and there . The big difference is that all the previous harmonic and melodic structure of the band is more cohesive, stronger, and this makes the songs the trio will flow more spontaneously. Yes, Blackning climbed one step higher in quality.

The production and mixing was maded by Fabiano Penna (Rebaelliun Guitarist), while the mastering was maded by Neto Grous at  Absolute Master Studio. And the result is a dry sound, aggressive and harsh, close to the sounds that the band play live, and that allows the listener to perceive not only the instrumental work of the band without difficulty. But even so it ceases to be heavy and impact.

Regarding the  Artwork, the presentation of "Alienation" is from first quality. A three-page digipack allowed Marcus Zerma, from  Black Blague Design that also did the art of "Order of Chaos", but this time, is more dense and with a clear meaning: manipulation.

Musically, the Blackning matured as the thrash metal band is much more cohesive and showing an interesting influence of Crossover and even HC at some points (as can be seen in the riffs of "Street Justice"), but the band is with musical arrangements most painstaking, and it is with a manicured aesthetics, without the band loses its natural aggressiveness. And join this special appearances by Fabiano Penna on backing vocals (which also programmed the samples), and additional vocals from André Alves (Statues On Fire Guitarist / Vocalist) in "Corporation" and Lohy Silveira (Rebaelliun Bassist / Vocalist) in "Devil's Child".
