‘Far From The Sanctuary’, the brand new song and music video from Swedish female fronted metallers Metalite, has been launched. This is the first single from the group’s upcoming album, “Biomechanicals”, that will be released on 25th of October via AFM Records. Check it out below.
The future is close: And she looks pretty overwhelming. Two years after their exciting debut „Heroes In Time“, the Swedish Melodic Metal renewers Metalite return with a new singer and a giant stroke. This band could be the new heroes of Modern Metal – trendsetting, epic and of highest quality. Of course, we have been knowing for long that the Swedish do have a hand for successful Metal. But an album with the quality of „Biomechanicals“ is even for this country a rarity. Influenced by the concept of bands like Within Temptation, the quintet from Stockholm reinvents classic Melodic Metal – and unleashes a storm of power, monumentality and zeitgeist, that you cannot escape. „Biomechanicals“ continues the high level from their debut and turns everything to 11, what stood on 10 before: A richer production, stronger songwriting and an elusive and mysterious aura distinguishes „Biomechanicals“ from everything you already know about Melodic Metal.
With Metalite’s expertly use of electronic elements, influenced by the Trance Era of early 21st century, sphaeric layers mix with flirring sequences and stoic beats fit like a second skin for the massive, melodic and outrageous catchy soundwall. But also the new singer Erica Ohlsson shapes that energetic sound.
Metalite‘s AFM debut is a futuristic glimmering garment made of Melodic and Symphonic Metal that differentiates lyrically from the rivalry. „We surround ourselves already that naturally with all these technological gadgets that we do not recognize anymore how they observate us“, so the guitarist about the contemporary and unsettling content of the album.
A flaming fire in their bellies, sparked off by another high-end production of Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe), Metalite are more than ready for their next step. It could be a very big one.

Metalite was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2015 when Edwin Premberg [guitar] met Emma Bensing [vocals]. The goal was to write and record melodic and memorable metal songs with a modern and fresh sound.
Edwin and Emma started to co-operate with the Danish producer Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Evergrey, Amaranthe] and songs started to take shape. During 2016 Metalite found three experienced musicians that agreed to join the band: Lea Larsson [drums], Robert Örnesved [guitar] and Robert Majd [bass].
Metalite‘s debut album “Heroes In Time” has been released on October 27th i2017 n Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.
