Singapore-based metal band Veterans unveils their brand new single Opportuniac via a brand new lyric video. The release of Opportuniac is a taste for the forthcoming, highly anticipated debut album Fake Quiet and Peace.
Thrilling, unapologetic and heavy, Opportuniac is the anthem for the apocalypse, providing a sonic backdrop that perfectly encapsulates these recent times. Opportuniac arrives alongside an iconic video produced by Marcelo Silva, who has previously worked with the likes of Nervosa, Sol de Sangre, and the Metal Against Coronavirus projects. The video further showcases the bleak undertones of the track, compounded by smart lyrics, ripping solos and a driving rhythm section.
Drawing from a wide-range of influences from Chuck Berry to Bad Religion to High on Fire to Carcass, Veteran‘s first full-length album Fake Quiet and Peace is as broad as it is heavy. The five band members focus their international experience, hailing from Bulgaria, Colombia, Morocco, Scotland & USA, and direct it through a South East Asia lens with their clever songwriting and lyrics.
Vocalist Kike Valderrama about Fake Quiet and Peace: “This album is fueled by the heavy music that brought us together. We hope these tunes will fire up those who already know about us and motivate others to check us out as well. We’ve been working towards this record for the last two-three years and we feel that we have captured the music in a way that we haven’t before. It feels like it comes from the gut. I dig it. I hope you do too.”
Fake Quiet and Peace was recorded in Singapore by Leonard Soosay at Snakeweed Studios, mixed by Jesse Gander of Rain City Recorders (3 Inches of Blood, Subhumans, Anciients) and mastered by the grammy-winning Alan Douches from West West Side Music (Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Kvelertak).
