Velvet Ocean - Rage

On February 7, 2020, Velvet Ocean's "Purposes and Promises" first album was made available. The record has increased its exposure internationally, as shown in publications like Metalized, Orkus!, Legacy, Sonic Seducer, Rock Hard Italy, and Sonic Seducer. Warner Music Finland managed the distribution while Helsinki Records handled the album's release.

At Helsinki Records, veteran Finnish producers Maki Kolehmainen and Toivo Hellberg are now collaborating with Velvet Ocean on their second album. 

Rage is the second single from Velvet Ocean's second album. The singer Riitu Ronkainen describes the song:
"Rage is about a person who hides behind a mask. You have hurt others and yourself with your own behavior without even realizing it. Man has become unrecognizable. The rage has grown to the point where it feels like you can't take it anymore. However, rage has also increased inner strength and brings the feeling that it is possible to break the cycle. The masks in the music video reflect the fact that the person is no longer recognized as the same person, but has to hide himself behind the mask. The mask is also a protection against having to experience the judgment of others. The masks reflect different aspects of a person, because humanity is not black and white, but also has different shades of gray."

Click on the YouTube link above to watch the Official music video, very well made. Rage is very catchy (check out the chorus!) and it's amazingly performed by Velvet Ocean. I also really like the pace and the mood of the song, very energetic but melodic at the same time. This is a very cool song, give it a go and follow the band on social media as well.
