THE SONIC OVERLORDS have unleashed another taste of melodic rock majesty and thunderous doom via the music video for their new single, “Utopia”, which metal.de has already described as “hard rock/heavy metal which is heavily inspired by the past and pleasantly free of clichés.”
The Swedish quartet’s debut album, “Last Days of Babylon”, will be released later this year by M-Theory Audio. In the meantime, “Utopia” is available now on all digital stream and download platforms at http://smarturl.com/
“We’re very happy to announce the release of Utopia, the second single from our upcoming album,”
states bassist Daniel Ramirez.
This song will also be the opening track since we wanted to start the album off with a BANG!!! It’s an energetic up-tempo song that will hit you straight in the gut! Morgan [Zocek – guitar] might possibly have had a song like Deep Purple’s “Speed King” in mind when he started writing this one many moons ago. You might also hear some influences from Rainbow, Rising Force, Symphony X, and possibly even Queen in the song..! Enjoy, and PLAY IT LOUD!!!
“Utopia” is the follow-up to the group’s first single, “In My Darkest Room”, which was released in October 2020. That song gained rock radio airplay throughout Scandinavia and spread through mainland Europe, the US and Australia as DJs and programmers were drawn to the group’s combination of powerful doom riffs and the epic and melodic majesty of ‘late ’70s/early ’80s heavy rock with influences from the likes of Dio/Martin-era Black Sabbath, Rainbow, early Candlemass, Yngwie J. Malmsteen/Rising Force, Scorpions and MSG. The band’s blend of power, darkness, and musicality was recognized by former Sabbath vocalist Tony Martin via a shout-out to “In My Darkest Room” on his social media channels. The music video for “In My Darkest Room” – also directed by Per Andersson – can be viewed at
