Review: Project Renegade - Cerebra


Recently vocalist Marianna and drummer Ody formed their new band, Project Renegade. Soon after that, guitarist Tasos and bassist Makis were added to the lineup. So, Project Renegade from Athens, Greece was complete and ready to go. In March, their debut EP titled Cerebra was released, which contains 3 tracks with a total length of almost 19 minutes. At this moment, Project Renegade is already working on their debut full-length, but for now it is Cerebra.

Project Renegade plays their metal in a modern, challenging way. The instrumental part sounds very promising. It's clearly audible and sounds really heavy. You can hear that Ody, Tasos and Makis play very solid and has a lot of variations in the music, which makes it clear they are musicians who know how to handle their instrument. Especially the drumming from Ody stands out, for example during the second track Natural Born Killer, where his drums almost sound tribal-like. Marianna's beautiful vocals are added to these heavy instrumentals, her voice is clean and can almost be called catchy. All of this is completed by some added electronical elements, but not in a bad way.

What makes Cerebra complete is the combination of Marianna's beautiful, clean vocals and the heavy instrumentals. It strengthens each other and keeps all in balance.

Project Renegade delivers a really strong EP, full of challenging, modern metal, especially considering it being a debut EP. If these Greek metallers can hold this to their debut full-length, Project Renegade can't fail. So, do you dig heavy, varying metal with beautiful female vocals? Be sure to listen to Cerebra by Project Renegade! Before you know it, you are waiting for their debut full-length, just as I am.
