KARPENTER (named in tribute to horror master John Carpenter) will be releasing their debut album „Sleepless” on May 28th via Rockshots Records. The album will be a gateway to a hostile and tormented world, where space and time are perceived in a distorted way. Each track hides a story, and a tale steeped in fear all inspired by horror movie themes and characters such as „Perfection Valley” for Tremors, „No Vacancy” for Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, „Shark” influenced by Jaws, and „The Manor” for Army of Darkness.
With just a few days until the full-length is unleashed, these horror fiends are sharing their latest music video for „Mechanical Sense”, which is inspired by the horror video board game Atmosfear. It’s a fast and impactful track that speaks of demonic possession as a metaphor of the inability to manage choices and actions in everyday life.
„This song is here to make a clear point: we can play hard and heavy if we want. “Mechanical Sense” is like a fast train running with no rails and boundaries. It is clearly a speedy metal song filled with stunning melodies and majestic mid-tempo openings. It’s a no-brainer when it comes to the power of sound and it is so funny to play! ” adds the band.
