Japanese power metal band Lovebites have announced their new album, Electric Pentagram, with the thrilling single “When Destinies Align.”
The six-minute ripper arrived with a music video that marries no-frills performance footage of the quartet with dramatic scenes of Lovebites as ancient warriors. It’s worth a watch, particularly for guitarists Midori and Miyako’s fanged solos at the three-minute mark.
Electric Pentagram is Lovebites’ third album, and will arrive January 31, 2020. The 12-track record follows their 2018 album, Clockwork Immortality.
In a statement, bassist Miho explained the album’s title: “Lovebites is an electric pentagram. A pentagram is a five-pointed star consisting of five lines. It’s been an emblem that’s adorned amulets and talismans since ancient times as a symbol of protection. That’s why we felt Electric Pentagram is the perfect title for this album, we are five points brought together to protect heavy metal.”
