A win for the genre with a refreshing approach.

Benegas manages to impress with this album and his compositions. Adrian Benegas puts Paraguay on the map as a producer of excellent progressive rock.  What a pleasant surprise!

At the end of 2019, with a new found energy after the success of his female fronted project TRAGUL, Adrian fully immerse himself in the dream of making his solo debut album. Putting his heart and soul in writing all the lyrics, concept and all music by himself, The Revenant was produced entirely by Adrian Benegas.

 

 The production is top-notch, making a great sound of the album. The mix and master was in charge by grammy nominated producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica), except for track 1, Servants of The Death which was mixed by producer Alberto Bravin (Rhapsody of Fire) and mastered by worldwide mastering engineer Maor Appelbaum (Malmsteen, Dream Theater, Sabaton). The artwork was designed by renowned artist Carlos Fides.

For this material, Adrian Benegas gathered his dream team of musicians and nothing less than 3 vocalists to bring his songs to life, such as Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear - Gamma Ray), Herbie Langhans (Firewind, Avantasia), Henning Basse (Metallium, Mayan) and Zuberoa Aznarez (Diabulus in Musica, Tragul).

 
Released on November 15th, 2019 via German Label Pride and Joy Music (worldwide) with an exclusive Japanese version which includes a bonus track. 

METAL TEMPLE

“The Revenant” is a great sounding album, put together by an obviously extremely talented composer and musician, featuring an absolute wealth of talent. If you are passionate about Symphonic Metal, I'd wager you'll love this one!

AORMUSIC.DE

Imagine epic Heavy Metal with a good dose of film score with lots of piano tidbits here and there, and – voila – the outcome will be The Revenant. So far, well done, Mr. Benegas!

The Story Behind

The Revenant, it’s an emotionally charged conceptual album.

The lyrics deal with introspection and self-transcendence, presented in a deep metaphorical way about the tale of an unredeemed soul's journey from the depths of its own hell to the edge of self-realization. This album gives an insight into the human journey itself, the ups and downs, about trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
