“The Sniper” will undoubtedly turn heads, forcing metal icons to watch their rearview mirrors as these guys pull up fast with the nitrous afterburners firing! Testosterone infused, Melodic power metal best describes their music, though there are many tasty moments showing a progressive edge and showcasing a huge new vocal talent.
In the beginning “Darkness & Light” was released 2006. Mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward featuring guest appearances by Renato Borghetti (Accordeon), Edu Falaschi (Angra) and Thiago Bianchi (Shaman). It entered the Top 3 albums in Brazil’s Roadie Crew Magazine readers pole, right behind Brazilian metal stars Sepultura and Angra, completely selling out of it’s first pressing immediately. Entering #46 in Japanese Burrn magazines top sellers helped establish Scelerata as new contender in metal.
"Skeletons Domination" (released in 2008) was mixed/mastered by Charlie Bauerfeind (Helloween, Blind Guardian, Rage, Saxon, Halford, Hammerfall, Motorhead), achieving highest marks in major magazines worldwide. Entered #36 on Burrn mag’s top sellers list, released like (D & L) on Nightmare in Europe and North America.
“The Sniper” (2012) presents a stunning vocal performance from Fabio Juan, showing a much more matured band that delivers a heavier more aggressive sound, beautifully mixing power metal and melodic progressive elements ranging from angst ridden lyrics of corruption to sorrowful love lost. The HUGE production makes this album a must hear for any true metal fan.
“The Sniper” was again produced, mixed and mastered by Charlie Bauerfeind with guitarist Renato Osorio. Also featuring Andi Deris (Helloween) and Paul Di’Anno (ex-Iron Maiden) as very special guests, not only singing, also composing, co-writers.
SCELERATA "The Sniper" is WINNER of "Best Cover Art" battle at METAL RIOT!
