Furies : “Fortune’s Gate” CD 16th October 2020 Self Released.
Started long time ago (2013..), Zaza Bathory (Drums) decided to have a female Heavy Metal band to blast the French scene. First a French band singing in French… two years later after the search for the best part of the band. Lynda Basstarde (bass and vocals), joined and got the band in a better postion.
While Zaza and Lynda were very motivated composing amazing songs, the line up got some issues. (like most bands actually…) Not to mention Heavy Metal sung in French never made a big impact. They so decided to search for better musicians to lift up their music as their notoriety in the Metal scene.
Sadly they found only two males guitarists, in 2016 they recruited Billy Lazer , extraodinary left hand shredder and Sam Flash the other guitarist. The band was now complete with the will to create strong and powerful songs. Lynda has been playing in several bands, have also sung in Sortilege when they reformed for few live shows.
With the nice line up completed , the band recorded two great songs in the pure Heavy Metal tradition. It ‘s then in 2017 not late after they found the two missing parts, they released a cassette Tape ‘Unleash the Furies‘ in the vein of the nineties ‘singles‘ time. Awesome production, fast tempo and blasting riffs Furies exploded to the scene gaining tons of fans in a short time . Not bad for a band that started few years back..
“When the eighties meet the nineties Heavy Metal explosion , it gives you Furies”
The band got aired on radios, one song on a compilation. Tons of live shows , many t-shirts .. the girls know the business and have the right image to blew away the world. It is with no surprise everyone falls in love with the band. They have the receipt to create one of the best songs ever written, time flies and the album has been awaiting to satisfy the fans.
After three years of long wait , and a tape played thousand times. People who had the pleasure to see them live , and I did . Know the power Furies have and spread with their brilliant tunes. “Fortune’s gate” is now coming to blast the world with an amazing production with still eye catching cover design.
