Combining Swedish pop sensibilities and soaring vocals over a hard rock backdrop, Metalite have released a debut album that screams for attention.

As music fans are well aware, Sweden is known for producing great pop bands and perhaps fittingly, Metalite hails from Stockholm, Sweden, getting their start in 2015.  Guitarist Edwin Premberg met vocalist Emma Bensing and the rest is, as they say, history.  The two of them becan to cooperate with producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Evergrey, Amaranthe) and the songwriting process began.  During 2016, the two picked up the rest of the band members Lea Larsson (drums), Robert Örnesved (guitar) and Robert Majd (bass) and the band signed to Inner Wound Records with Heroes in Time being produced by Jacob Hansen.

“Afterlife” opens up the album and makes for a great introduction to the band and to what is to come on the album.  First thing metal fans will notice is the strong, sometimes dominating keyboards, so much so that at times the guitars seem almost like an afterthought.  As the song gets going, Emma Bensing’s smooth, clear vocals next grab the listener’s attention as they are literally made for this style of music.  “Purpose of Life” is more of the same, opening keyboards dominating much of the sound but a strong driving rhythm section of guitars and drums that come more to the forefront in the verse sections accompanying the midrange vocals.  While far from the aggression in most of what I listen to, there is no escaping the catchiness of the songs.  As said before, think of catchy pop songs combined with some power metal.
