New album "The Beloved Bones: Hell" out now!

 Inspired to take their name from a Manowar track off the 1982 Battle Hymns album, Brazilian prog/power thrash metallers DARK AVENGER are back with an outstanding new album, "The Beloved Bones: Hell" to follow their five previous releases since forming in 1993. Unleashed around the globe via Rockshots Records, "The Beloved Bones: Hell" album was first released first in their home country on July 14th, 2017 followed by Europe on September 1st, 2017 and in North America on October 13th, 2017.
 The album was produced, recorded and mixed by guitarist Glauber Oliveira and mastered by the renowned Tony Lindgren at Fascination Studios in Sweden.
 "The Beloved Bones: Hell" is a two-chapter play: “HELL” and “DIVINE” and the first part “HELL” talks about eleven mental stages someone probably might be going through when living a constant uncomfortable situation (“Hell is repetition”) as for example, a loveless marriage, a severe disease, an unwanted job, financial difficulties, alcoholism, drug abuse, a sex harassment, among many others which we inadvertently allow to come into our lives. Each song follows the mental phases and feelings described in HELL, the first part of the play, from its initial phase of discovering to be living a hell, until the final experiences of abandoning the suffering: Unconsciousness – Denial – Fugue – Victimization – Despair – Craving – Reflection – Balance – Courage - Decision - Freedom.

 Vocalist vocalist Mario Linhares. comments: "I really hope people understand the concept of The Beloved Bones: HELL, paying attention to the lyrics along with the songs to fully understand the plot throughout the album. We have chosen the ways of the Existentialism and Human Appreciation to talk to our audience… and we are gladly surprised that people all around the world are happy and in resonance with this path. It’s an existential album, which deserves special attention to be fully understood. The album talks about eleven mental steps ANYONE may experience when being through hard times (“Hell is repetition”). We have given the songs the proper weight of interpretation, whether on sound or on lyrics, necessary to express the momentum the songs describes in each chapter. As there’s no character or a story to follow to, we decided to have an "I" that by its psychic binomial (REASON and EMOTION) drives the interlocutor, by hard and harsh dialog, throughout those mental steps, from the primordial moment of discovery that the "I" suffers, until the hard and definitive point of deciding to be free from suffering. The TONUS and atmosphere in each song is an indicator of which step (chapter) into the plot the listener is on the path towards outside Hell."
