TRITON DEVS is the creation of composer/guitarist/sound engineer Blacky Lee Stone, aiming to embark on a new musical project to signify a rebirth of the world after this tragic past year and unexpected period spent in lockdown. Collaborating with vocalist Eric Castiglia, drummer Zamkenoby, bassist Anna Portalupi (HARDLINE, Tarja), and internationally renowned drummer Mike Terrana (Yngwie Malmsteen, RAGE, Tarja Turunen, Axel Rudi Pell). The collective of musicians has created an energetic 10 track full length influenced by elements of classic heavy metal, hard and progressive rock.
Entitled “Stay Alive,” the record shifts from the classic cannons of metal towards new arrangements and sounds. Each musical composition has its own magic and atmosphere that act as the soundtrack to the narration of the lyrics.
Blacky Lee Stone comments:
“My favorite metal genres are speed metal, hard rock, and progressive, but as a musician, I think that if a song is beautiful, interesting and played well, it is regardless of the musical genre. That said, this album embodies that thought, despite having a decidedly metal imprint, each track is contaminated by different micro musical influences that make each track different from the other by exploring many nuances of the genre played as a whole. A direct and melodic album with songs that are not excessively complicated but which suggests the skill of the musicians themselves.”
In lead up to the album’s release on June 18, 2021, via Rockshots Records, TRITON DEVS is sharing their latest music video for their fourth single “The Light of Your Skin,” which can be viewed here:
“Within an album, a ballad certainly cannot be missing, here it is… the slow song of the disc that contains progressive nuances,” adds Blacky Lee Stone.
Blacky Lee Stone comments about the first single:
“The Show” is a classic hard rock tune, the kind you can let spin over and over again without getting tired of it. An uplift, melodic and dynamic song about how cool is pushing the limits.. that moment when you’re realize it’s time to running away from your mistakes and your daily worries, without asking if it’s right or wrong.. Just being yourself even if the world around you wants to bring you down”.
