After a period of intense growth, Singapore’s Sangriento emerges with our debut EP “Ghosts of the Past”! This album captures the pulsating sound of Sangriento, and features six original songs.
Three years in the making, this EP explores the tensions in our pasts that shape us today. It begins with a neo-classical meets metal number, Inner Conflict, which is a snapshot of the crazed cacophony of voices in our heads. Ghosts of 212 is inspired by a true ghost story that happened to the band, as we playfully reimagine the thoughts of this haunting spirit. Fight takes a melancholic turn, and this song is dedicated to all who has ever struggled in darkness. Memory is an ironic combination of gleeful melody with irate lyrics a contradiction not uncommon in precarious relationships. The album pushes to a climatic finish with Wanderer featuring a memorable chorus that everyone can sing along to. In the final track, we come full circle with Circus, as it represents the starting point of our songwriting adventure.
“Ghosts of the Past” is now available on iTunes (https://itun.es/sg/wHOydb) and Bandcamp (https://sangriento.bandcamp.
An eerie mix of modern rock and alternative neoclassical melodies, Sangriento is where metal meets experimental.
Formed in 2010, Sangriento is known among the local J-rock scene as a band that delivers the most electrifying performances. In 2015, Sangriento was selected as one of nine bands for the annual Noise Music Mentorship Programme, training under the guidance of drummer extraordinaire Brandon Khoo. Sangriento also emerged as the national champions of the Yamaha Asian Beat competition, and represented Singapore at the grand finals in Tokyo in December 2015, before embarking on a short tour in the Tokyo live house scene. Their debut EP “Ghosts of the Past” was released in July 2016.
