Loud and thunderous Heavy Rock trio Appalooza premiere their third album “The Shining Son” in full, ahead of its official release this October 20th on Ripple Music. Get on a wild Rock ride now!
“The Shining Son” is the sequel to Appalooza‘s 2021 Ripple Music debut “The Holy of Holies” and weaves its storyline around enigmatic Biblical references and a fascinating cinematic approach, presenting eight massive-sounding tracks that subtly blend Stoner Rock, Grunge Rock and the trio’s trademark tribal percussions. Propelled in an exhilarating stampede of thick metallic riffs, rumbling grooves, multi-layered rhythms and frontman Wild Horse‘s dazzling baritone vocals, Appalooza deliver their most audacious album to date, a sonic tour de force that will cement their reputation as one of France’s most creative Heavy Rock outfits of their generation.
Appalooza is a lost steed thirsting for freedom, drawing inspiration and essence from the dust of an arid desert. After a first American tour in 2015, the band galloped relentlessly and trampled the paths of the studio to record their first album “Appalooza.” In the winter of 2018, the band returned from an extensive US West Coast tour and signed to Ripple Music for the release of their second full-length “The Holy Of Holies,” bearing a brand new visual identity and sound.
Appalooza are now set to release their third record “The Shining Son” this October 2023 on Ripple Music. “The Shining Son” was recorded by Arthurus Lauth at Brown Bear Recording in Saint-Lumine-de-Clisson, France. Mixed by Arthurus Lauth & Wild Horse, and mastered by Ronan Cloarec at Master Lab Systems in Nantes, France. Artwork was designed by Wild Horse Artworks.
