Rockshots Records is proud to announce their latest signing of heavy metal trio Black Sun for the release of their new EP «Silent Enemy» due out Summer 2020.

Black Sun har denne kommentaren:
This EP is a new beginning for Black Sun, the tracks were written during the touring period for the last album. However, during the production and recording sessions, the former singer was removed from the band. Consequently, the songs changed, the band had more flexibility and freedom on where to take these songs. Hence, the featuring of many different singers is what makes this EP unique. We can’t tell you exactly what will happen next, but we can guarantee this is only the beginning of an exciting new chapter, a rebirth that will bring much more music soon enough.
The light at the end of the tunnel. This is a melodic, powerful, and catchy metal hymn that features an array of multi-vocal performance by astonishing singers. It holds the final message that reveals the meaning of the whole concept of the EP.
