Melodic Metal From South America

Hailing from Santiago, Chile, Prudant Nasson is a stellar writer, arranger, musician and now vocalist with this new solo project: NassonScars on Frontiers Music s.r.l..  Having recently come to the attention of hard rock and metal fans through his work on the latest Chaos Magic album, Furyborn and the outstanding debut record from Sinner’s Blood, The Mirror Star, Nasson brings us 11 strong Melodic Metal songs that sound modern, yet have a definite connection to the origins of the style.

About the Album

On “Scars”, Nasson offers fine examples of contemporary melodic metal, with influences ranging from Evergrey, to Pretty Maids to Eclipse. Handling all the songwriting and arrangements, he also plays the bulk of the instrumentation on “Scars”, with the help of Rodrigo Leiva on drums and Caterina Nix (Chaos Magic) on background vocals. Caterina also appears together with her fellow talented Frontiers artists based in South America on the song “We Are the Army”, where she is joined by fellow lead vocalists Gui Oliver (Landfall, Mayank), Mizuho Lin (Semblant, The Erinyes), and James Robledo (Sinner’s Blood). Other special guests on the album include Alessandro Del Vecchio for a vocal duet on “When it Rains,” Mistheria (Bruce Dickinson, Rob Rock) handling additional synth on “Mother Moon”, and Ignacio Torres handling lead guitars on “Not Today”, “Bringer of Sorrow” and “We Are The Army.”

Final Notes

Prudant Nasson is a very talented musician and producer. His voice reminds this reviewer of Nocturnal Rites and Bon Jovi, while having a strong sense of melody that really works for the style. The production is great, and the album is a good listen, so all of you melodic Heavy Metal fans should definitely check out this rising star from south of the equator.
