In a short amount of time LOVEBITES have thrashed their way halfway around the world in the pursuit of heavy metal. From being crowned “Best New Band” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2018, to wowing crowds at Download Festival and Bloodstock Open Air, and supporting DragonForce on their UK tour last month, the five-strong band refuse to slow down. Now, with ELECTRIC PENTAGRAM on the horizon, LOVEBITES push forwards stronger than ever with this being their fifth CD released in the United Kingdom since their debut EP was unleashed less than 30-months ago.
Speaking on the album title, bassist Miho comments, “LOVEBITES is an electric pentagram. A pentagram is a five-pointed star consisting of five lines. It’s been an emblem that’s adorned amulets and talismans since ancient times as a symbol of protection. That’s why we felt ELECTRIC PENTAGRAM is the perfect title for this album, we are five points brought together to protect heavy metal.”
ELECTRIC PENTAGRAM includes 12 new recordings and sees Finnish engineer supremoes Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila return to mixing and mastering duties respectively. The same team responsible for working on releases from Children of Bodom, Nightwish and Stratovarius among many more. Cover art duties also sees Spanish illustrators David López Gómez and Carlos Vincente León. The pair had worked on the cover art of LOVEBITES‘ previous albums, as well as HELLOWEEN‘s 30th anniversary book Hellbook and single Pumpkins United.
