"Quarto Vazio" is the title of the new digital EP from the Portuguese atmospheric metal band Painted Black. The EP is the follow up to their debut album "Cold Comfort", released in 2010.
Produced entirely by the band with the contribution of producer Pedro Mendes of UltraSound Studios (Braga, Portugal) and mastered by Australian producer Mark Kelson (The Eternal) at his Kelsonic Studios (in Melbourne, Australia), also includes Marcelo Aires (Heavenwood, Colosso) as session drummer.
The new record explores a more Rock oriented sound, but without diverging from the band's characteristic sound.
In addition to the title track sung entirely in Portuguese, the Ep still includes a cover song of "O Hábito Faz O Monstro" of the Portuguese cult pop/rock band Rádio Macau, and a cover song of the track "The Perfect Drug" of the American band Nine Inch Nails.
The band is currently preparing concerts to promote their new EP and are planning to enter the studio in 2014 to begin the recording of their second album, still with no scheduled release date.
The EP "Quarto Vazio" and its entire artwork can be downloaded for free at Painted Black's official website www.painted-black.org and is available for listening at the band's YouTube and SoundCloud channels.
