All-star charity project Feelingless are behind door number 10 of our Essential Advent Calendar, with their brand-new studio album, ‘Metal Against Animal Cruelty’, via Noble Demon.
Brought to life by Hugo Markaida, member of Spanish melodic death metal band Rise to Fall, Feelingless is a project to support animal rights and to give a voice to the voiceless. With guest appearances by the likes of Björn Strid (Soilwork), Jon Howard (Threat Signal), Christian Älvestam (Solution .45, Miseration) and Ettore Rigotti & Claudio (Disarmonia Mundi) – just to name a few.
‘Metal Against Animal Cruelty’ offers eleven tracks and the proceeds raised from this release will be donated to local animal shelters in Spain and to ‘Animal Equality‘, a well-respected, transparent and very efficiently working international animal welfare organization. In support of the new release,
Feelingless shared a visualizer for the track “Love”, which features guest contributions from Ettore Riggoti & Claudio Ravinale of Disarmonia Mundi.
“This song talks about love for animals and the love that animals give back without expecting anything in return. This song features Ettore and Claudio from Disarmonia Mundi, one of my favorite bands. I had the pleasure of working with Ettore with my band and meeting him in person, he is another animal lover who, like me, lives with rescued animals. When I proposed the idea of the project to him he said yes right away.”

‘Metal Against Animal Cruelty’ was produced, recorded and mastered at Chromaticity Studios by Pedro J Monge.
