Spain’s NORTH OF SOUTH brings to the table a hard to classify metal that could be labeled as Progressive Metal with Jazz, Death, Pop and Latin influences. Founded by guitarist Chechu Gómez (aka “Chechu Nos”), this project is the result of blending and amalgamating completely different elements and influences, such as At The Gates’ melodic punch, Carlos Santana’s Hispanic sounds, Opeth’s compositional deepness, The Police’s rich substrate-Pop, Anathema’s emotional power and Kate Bush’s chameleonic diversity..
Similarly, the literary influence of authors such as Jorge Luis Borges, Orson Scott Card and William Shakespeare can be found in the songs of “New Latitudes” that conceptually gravitates around esoteric subjects like the enigma of time, the human condition, its challenges, and our own personal contradictions.
“NORTH OF SOUTH is a different kind of metal”
“New Latitudes” was recorded at Zoilo Unreal’s studios (Marín, Spain), a familiar name in the Spanish extreme metal scene, having been involved with bands like Unreal Overflows, The Anthagonist and Unhuman Nature. “New Latitudes” is set to be released worldwide via ROCKSHOTS RECORDS on September 28, 2018.
