The Brazilian Thrash/Groove metal band band Legacy Of Kain have released a new song ‘Split in Half’ feat. Fernanda Lira from the band Nervosa. The song appears on Legacy of Kain’s upcoming album“Paralelo XI” which will be released on May 16th. ‘Split in Half’ can be streamed below.
About the song, the band states:
“We fight for days when we never have to live this kind of atrocity again. Split In Half is a music based on real events that tells an episode of the story of the Cinta Larga tribe where a group of miners invaded one of their camps with the intention of killing them all and one of these assassins because there is no other name for it , in an episode of fury, captured an Indian and his small son, hung it upside down and split her in 2 parts with a machete. Unfortunately this is not fiction. We continue to fight for better days, with less prejudice, less intolerance, less discord, whether religious or political, less divisions and more peace, more love and more respect.”
On February 25 Karim Serri, guitarist and the producer from Legacy Of Kain went to the city of São Paulo and accompanied Fernanda‘s recordings at Sputnik Home Studio with the assistance of Michel Oliveira. According to the musician “Fernanda is extremely talented. We needed a voice with presence and melodic dynamism for a cover song that we wanted to recordand our press manager gave us the idea to call her. When we make the conversations, they flowed well and she liked a lot the idea that we ended up planning to participate in a song of their own too, this time making use of their characteristic vociferations (laughs). ”
“Paralelo XI” is the follow up to the praised debut “I.N.V.E.R.S.O.” & is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2019, before the band going to a new tour that have plans to pass through Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. See the poster below.
