Title: Silent Trees
Release: Single Released 5th March; Album Released 7th May
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Pentral are to release the first single from their forthcoming album, an incendiary mix of the rhythms and melodies of their homeland of Brazil and the power and aggression of classic rock bands of the 1960s, 70s and 80s with a contemporary flavour. Passionate about environmental protection, equality and the fight against racism, their music and lyrics reflect their beliefs, with the band seeing music as a powerful and positive way of changing the world for the better and their album, What Lies Ahead of Us is a concept album exploring the fractious relationships between people from different backgrounds and cultures and ultimately Mankind’s war against nature itself. The first single is Silent Trees, a perfect snapshot of their musical skills and spirituality with a video which puts many a Hollywood film to shame!
Pentral comprise of brothers Victor (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars) and Vagner Lima (drums) and Joe Ferry (bass guitar), three Brazilians whose passion for rock music is only rivalled by their desire to make an album which contributes towards making the world a better, more tolerant place to live. Over ten tracks, Pentral tell the story of a couple and their new-born child emerging from the devastated Brazilian rainforest into a city ravaged by violence, greed and hate and finding that the only way to combat the discrimination and suffering around them is the power of love. From lead single, Silent Trees, and its Hindu mantra intro, to The Shell I’m Living In which reflects the emptiness of their hopeless new environment to No Real Colour in Souls, a rallying cry against racism in all its forms, it’s an album with elements of fantasy and also great truth, showing that working together is the only way to move forward.
Victor describes the recording process:
The Brazilian power trio never forgets their cultural roots, incorporating the rhythms of their home country, as well as the melodies, uncommon harmonies and groove. What Lies Ahead of Us is the epic culmination of their passionate worldview and musical prowess.
