POWERDRIVE Completes Work On Debut Album

Swedish metal band POWERDRIVE has completed work on its debut album, "Steel Roots", tentatively due this fall via an as-yet-undetermined record label. According to a press release, "POWERDRIVE's idea is to go back to the roots of metal with powerful riffs, shredding solos and powerful but melodic vocals."

Commented guitarist Miguel Gayarre: "We are going to deliver 15 tracks of pure and unaldutered metal, full of powerful guitar riffs, tight and technical drums , incredible guitar solos and some of the most breathtaking vocals that you can imagine. 'Steel Roots' will redifine the concept of 'true metal.' Imagine a cross between PANTERA, METALLICA and ALICE IN CHAINS and you will have an idea of our sound."

Six "pre-mastered" album tracks at available for streaming on the POWERDRIVE MySpace page.

The band's video for the song "Silver Bullet", which is said to be "a tribute to the fallen legends of metal," can be viewed below.
