Remedy, a dynamic and cutting-edge melodic rock metal band originating from the heart of Stockholm, Sweden, burst onto the music scene in 2022 with an unmistakable presence. Their debut album ‘Something That Your Eyes Won’t See’ charted in Sweden and had a massive impact, including truly incredible positive feedback from the Rock and Metal World.

Now it’s the time for the second album ‘Pleasure Beats the Pain’, co-produced with the Swedish S-Rock Music Production, a huge sound journey between catchy melodies, powerful riffs, huge sound and mesmerizing guitar solos. With these new songs, the band presents a sound even more personal, pushing boundaries even further. Drawing from the lively sounds of the 80s, but adding a modern twist, Remedy captivates listeners with their contagious energy. Their magic is driven by energetic guitars, powerful vocals, and catchy hooks across Rock, Pop, and Metal genres, blending retro vibes with fresh innovation seamlessly.

In line with the production of Remedy’s debut album, ‘Pleasure Beats the Pain’ is mixed and mastered by Erik Martensson (Eclipse) at Mass Destruction Production.

“Fueled by the success of our debut album, stepping back into the studio felt like the most natural progression for us. With 'Pleasure Beats the Pain,' we reached a defining moment in Remedy's journey, solidifying our sound. With a balance of light and dark, day and night, pleasure and pain, love and hate, our music mirrors life's complexities, melding melodic rock & metal into a harmonious blend. Through this, combined with a distinctive approach to instrumentality and songwriting, Remedy emerges”, Rolli concludes.

The album ‘Pleasure Beats the Pain’ will be released on May 24, 2024 by Escape Music as CD, limited edition LP and digital.

Perseus is a power metal band formed in 2011 in Brindisi (Puglia, Southern Italy) from the ashes of two local bands: “Hastings” (prog-metal, openers for Athena and Eldritch) and “Defenders of the Faith” (Judas Priest tribute band). Within an already well-explored genre, Perseus carved out their own personal space, taking inspiration from the old metal school of bands like Judas Priest, Manowar and Queensryche, without disdaining influences from more "Avant-Gardes" bans such as Kamelot or the italian Rhapsody Of Fire and Labyrinth.

The Italian melodic tradition of bel canto and nice melodies are mixed with powerful riffs. The more intimate moments of the songs are highlighted using acoustic guitars and keyboards. Passion, suffer, joy, love, damnation, redemption, etc., are the predominant themes expressed into the lyrics. In 2011, after two self-produced demos, “Ashes to Ashes” and “Icarus Creed”, Perseus signed their first contract with Nadìr Music led by Tommy Talamanca, Trevor, (both members of Sadist) and by the label manager Federico Gasperi.

In October 2013, Perseus recorded its debut album entitled "The Mystic Hands of Fate" (for Nadìr Music), produced by Tommy Talamanca who also recorded keyboards for the band. The first album gave to the band the possibility to open for band such as Vision Divine, Queensryche and Hollow Haze.

On the 1st of April 2016, Perseus published its second album, "A Tale Whispered In The Night” (for Buil2Kill Records), which was presented in Rome, having Fabio Lione as guest star who played live on the stage along with the band for that occasion. In September 2016, Perseus went on tour along with DragonhammeR to support the Swedish metal band Civil War in their European tour. In February 2018 Perseus went on a 4-day live shows as Headliner across Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovenia, experiencing warm appreciation from the audience and establishing a new fan base also in those areas. In 2024 the band signed with the English “Escape Music Ltd. and released its 3rd album “Into the silence”
