METALITE have released their new single A Virtual World, the title track from upcoming album which is due for release 26th March, out on AFM Records.

The update for modern Power and Melodic Metal will be coming sooner than expected – the Swedish Power Metal quintet METALITE return to the metal dancefloor. Trendsetting, epic and of the highest quality, influenced by the concept of bands like Within Temptation, Amaranthe and Delain, the band from Stockholm reinvents classic Melodic Metal, unleashing a storm of power, monumentality and zeitgeist that you cannot escape.

The band has revealed the excellent cover art for A Virtual World on their socials, created by Finnish graphic artist Jan Yrlund / Darkgrove Design.

As they started with Biomechanicals, the Swedes continue to expertly make use of electronic elements, influenced by the Trance Era of early 21st century: spherical layers mix with vibrating sequences and pulsating beats fitting like a second skin for the massive, melodic and outrageously catchy wall of sound. Guitarist Edwin Premberg states: “We see ourselves as a modern band that works differently than most of the Melodic Metal bands out there“.

They are extremely successful with the musical formula and the niche they have found for themselves. Excellent songwriting and catchy hooks empowered by base of sweeping synths and held together by a voice simultaneously strong and light at the same time. This is something only METALITE does these days and they do it seriously well, refined by another high-end production of Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe)

Pre-Sale for the new records has started – the long player is available as Ltd. Clear Purple Vinyl or CD now in the AFM Shop and various other shops
