Brazilian metal is the order of chaos that Pentral brings to us today. Formed of brothers Victor and Vagner Lima alongside Joe Ferry, the trio have an eco and positive focus on their music. On one hand, you have big guitar solos, impassioned vocals and everything you expect from a pure metal band. On the other hand, Pentral wants to make the world a better place and opens their new single ‘Silent Trees’ with a Hindu mantra. Often metal bands get tarred with the same ‘dark and demonic’ vibe so I wanted to shine a light on Pentral for merging together both their love of electric guitars and for saving rainforests and preventing racism.
The music video for ‘Silent Trees’ is a great one but requires a bit of context to understand its place. ‘Silent Trees’ is the lead track from Pentral’s forthcoming album ‘What Lies Ahead’, due out in May. It is a ten track concept album following a couple and their new-born child emerging from the devastated Brazilian rainforest into a city ravaged by violence, greed and hate. They discover the only way to combat the discrimination and suffering around them is through the power of love. The video for ‘Silent Trees’ channels most of that into a single video with various imagery, but you get more out of it knowing the albums’ concept.
Enjoy ‘Silent Trees’ below, its out now.
