RAGE OF LIGHT has signed a worldwide deal with Napalm Records.
RAGE OF LIGHT is a Swiss trance metal/melodic death metal band, created by vocalist/keyboardist Jonathan Pellet, known for his past works with TROPHALLAXY and DYSRIDER.
Jonathan came up with the idea to create a hybrid of trance and melodic death metal elements in 2007, but due to being busy with other projects, it took almost a decade for the idea to fully bear fruit. Finally, in 2015, he recruited EVENMORE vocalist Melissa Bonny and guitarist Noé Schüpbach to complete the band.
They released their first EP in 2016, titled “Chasing A Reflection”, as well as two singles in 2017.
Says the band about the signing: “We are thrilled to join the Napalm family! Currently working on our first full-length album, we are very much looking forward to this collaboration. Rage will be unleashed!”
Napalm Records A&R Sebastian Muench comments: “The charismatic singer Melissa Bonny is no stranger to the metal world since she is also the singer of Swiss power metal band EVENMORE, whose 2016 album received very positive feedback. The band’s talents, particularly Melissa‘s vocal range, are simply amazing and can be heard in the video ‘I Can, I Will’ but also in the released cover songs for ‘Judas’ (Lady Gaga) and ‘Twilight Of The Thunder God’ (AMON AMARTH). RAGE OF LIGHT, welcome to the Napalm family!”
