Japanese heavy metal band LOVEBITES had been posting a countdown on social media, which finally culminated in a reveal of the cover and track listing for their upcoming mini-album, Battle Against Damnation.
LOVEBITES consists of asami (vocals), miho (leader and bass), haruna (drums), midori (guitar) and mi-ya (guitar). They are nominated in Metal Hammer’s Golden Gods Awards for Best New Band.
The power metal heroines announced back in February that a new mini-album would be on the way this summer. Just like their previous album, Awakening From Abyss, Battle Against Damnation is mixed and mastered by engineers Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila of Finland’s Finnvox Studio. The cover art is illustrated by David López Gómez and Carlos Vicente León.
The track listing for the mini-album is as follows:
- The Crusade
- Break The Wall
- Above The Black Sea
- Under The Red Sky
The band revealed on Facebook that Battle Against Damnation will be available in Japan on 6 June via Victor Entertainment, and across Europe and the US on 8 June via JPU Records. It can currently be pre-ordered digitally on iTunes, with The Crusade as an instant gratification track. Alternatively, you can pre-order the physical release at JPU Records.
