Project Renegade – Order of the Minus (2019)


Project Renegade is a four-member metal band from Athens, Greece, founded by Marianna (vocals) and Ody (drums) and joined after by Nick K. (guitars) and Jay (bass). Project Renegade’s sound derives from an alternative, heavy and groove background blended with electronic and ambient elements. After releasing their debut EP “Cerebra” the band presents the first album “Order of the Minus”, a very deep work.

The Big Boss introduce us into this good album and accompany to the piece Liber8, first single released, in which the instrumental intro gives the sensation of a long voyage into a deep soul of this band,  interesting song.

Just a little bit more melodic is the following Products Of War feels with heavy guitars and in which the vocalist Marianna has a really potential vocal demonstrating an uncommon vocal temperament.

Heavy guitars and drums for The New Joker, a stunning piece that surprises, surprises more the fact that this is the first album for  Project Renegade.
Pretty good also In Another Life but it’s with  the following The Strain that band manages to grab our attention, with its powerful and deep intensity.
With Respirator we can listen to electro touches and an oscillation of the various atmospheres, while in Sylar the voice stands out always accompany with the good heavy guitars and rhythm section, narrative parts and atmospheric pathos.
Interesting atmospheric instrumental track is A Demon Has Escaped The Triangle, an  , some electric sound elements and again a chant-alike sound here and there. Definitely adds some variation.

To end the album there’s the beautiful Black Mountain, more closest to a chant than a metal track, great mood, one of the highlights in Order of the Minus
Order Of The Minus is a rich album, deep atmosphere, good structured songs and a certain the first step for further success.
