The efficiency of Hard Rock, the power of Heavy Metal, the spirit of Thrash. This is how we could sum up Furies’s approach and whose first album, to be released at the fall of 2020, will surely aim at the heart and guts of the Metal audience as a whole.
The recipe has been proven and we know it works devilishly well. From the hymnic « You & I » and « Voodoo Chains » to more complex « Fortune’s Gate » or raging « Unleash The Furies », Furies distils a real Heavy Metal method in 10 lessons. No need to reinvent the wheel to make it roll far, fast and right : if the Parisian four-piece cannot deny old school heavy metal masters’s influence (Judas Priest, Iron Maiden), they add a touch of undeniable freshness and a resolutely contemporary production, coming from prestigious Labomatic (Paris) and Domination (Italy) studios. Both iconic places that the band didn’t chose randomly :
« We had the chance in 2016 to be able to record under the stewardship of producer Bénédicte Schmitt and her sidekick Dominique Blanc-Francard, and wanted to reiterate this unforgettable experience for the recording of our album. Igor Moreno at the Labomatic desk, the name of Michael Romeo popped up while we were talking about the production we wanted for « Fortune’s Gate », as our two guitarists are ardent fans of the guy. Simone Mularoni, « War of The Worlds Pt.1 » producer, knew how to shape our sound and we are more than proud of the result ! »
Born in 2013 under the initiative of Zaza Bathory (drums) and originally an all-female band, Furies made a great leap forward in 2015 with the arrival of Lynda Basstarde (vocals and bass), then in 2016 with the enrolment of « symmetrical » lead guitarists (one left and one right-handed) Billy Lazer and Sam Flash. The band has finally come to its mixed and definitive line-up.
