5RAND is a metal band from Italy, female fronted with both clean and growling vocals, who plays a modern metal, distinguished by the combination of melody with heavy, aggressive riffing.
The bands’ sound can lead you into a dark, disturbing and violent atmosphere, whose result may recall bands like Slipknot, Fear Factory and Dark Tranquillity.
5RAND debuts in 2017 with the album “Sacred/Scared” described by critics as “a monster debut album capable of providing endless moments of head-banging glory”.
Their first release is supported by a strong live activity and with various shows throughout Europe and Italy.
5RAND joins some European tours and festivals (supporting band like Vader, Immolation, Behemoth and Sepultura).
Then, in 2018, the band tours again around Europe supporting Dark Tranquillity and Equilibrium and plays various headliner shows all around Italy.
“Dark Mother” is 5RAND’s second studio work, where the band confirms its prowess in combining melody with heavy, aggressive riffing, clean vocals and growling.
The album discloses a mature and modern metal songwriting that brings to life a dark, disturbing and violent, and yet captivating atmosphere.
