Power/prog metal band S91 presents the new video ‘Godfrey of Bouillon’ featuring singer Egidio Casati from Boarders. The song is taken from the latest album “Along The Sacred Path”, released by Rockshots Records in Spring 2019.

The new Lyric Video can be seen below.

“Along The Sacred Path” album traces the history of Christianity through the life of some key figures. One of them is Godfrey Of Bouillon, first ruler of the first Crusader State. He is also the main character of Torquato Tasso’s “Gerusalemme liberata”, a poetic character of extraordinarily evocative force. Moved by sincere faith, he is a humble hero who refuses the title of King.

S91 is a Christian progressive metal band from Tuscany, and with the release of “Along the Sacred Path” continue documenting the history of humanity through the lens of Christian theology, a study started on “Behold the Mankind” (2016).

“Constantine the Great” starts in such a moody way. The bass guitar riff makes you sway, and the time signature points to prog rock complexity. This complexity remains when vocal duties change hands – at first manly and gruff, and then melodic and feminine. Along the Sacred Path makes for a gripping journey.

Just when you think you have the genre pinned down, the blistering guitar riff that opens “Saint Patrick” makes me think of speed metal à la Cacophony (Marty Friedman & Jason Becker). I like how the voice also gets a hardcore treatment that fits this song particularly well. You’ll have to hold on tight, because S91 change rhythmic tac often. Here now is a beautiful soaring keyboard that carries female vocals singing, “Oh my Lord, thanks my Lord”. Continue reading »

Italian Progressive Metal Band S91 have released a lyric video for their new song ‘Martin Luther’ check it out below. The song is also available as digital single.

The band states: “We wrote this song for three reasons. First, We want to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reform. Second, we would like the Pentecostal Church to pay attention to the story of a quite unknown historical figure and get rid of the claim of being direct descendants of ancient Christianity, pretending that in the last 1900 years nothing has happened. Third, we want to reflect on our roots in a Non-anticatholic way but wonder if it is possible to begin to heal the wound that the Protestant Reformation has done to the Western Church.”

S91‘s latest album “Behold the Mankind” is released on November 7th 2016 through Underground Symphony. “Behold the mankind” is a concept album about the history of mankind based on Christian theology.  Continue reading »
