A rapidly rising act in the South American metal scene, Semblant are more than ready to take the world stage. The band have already received international praise from the metal community with the 2014 release of their second album Lunar Manifesto, the singles from which (What Lies Ahead, Dark Of The Day and Incinerate) have racked up over 30 million views on YouTube.They are now ready for the next phase of their career with the upcoming release of their highly anticipated new album, Obscura.

Semblant formed in 2006 in Curitiba, Brazil when singer Sergio Mazul and keyboardist J. Augusto joined forces to create music that featured all the dark and aggressive elements they loved in metal music. The group eventually established a settled line-up with the addition of Mizuho Lin (female vocals), Juliano Ribeiro (guitar), Welyntom ‘Thor’ Sikora (drums) and Johann Piper (bass).

States Mazul: “The last few years were really intense for the band. ‘Lunar Manifesto’ received a lotof attention for quite a while after it was first released and it was actually issued twice, independently at first, and then a second time with our previous label (and that meant we promoted it for longer than originally intended). Besides that, we faced some extremely difficult moments in our personal lives during the songwriting process of Obscura and it definitely shows when you listen to it. We put our hearts into this record to help us deal with all the trouble we were facing during that time.”

Guitarist Ribeiro adds: Obscura is definitely a more mature record. We were really conscious of how we wanted it to be since the beginning of the process, so we took all the time we needed to make the album exactly how we wanted. It’s important to say that we’ve been together as a band for many years now and it also had a big impact on the end result of this record.”
