After much anticipation, rock and metal supergroup Projected today released its third album Hypoxia, available in stores now and on all digital platforms via Rat Pak Records. Earlier this year, the mighty quartet set the tone with the album’s first two singles “Hypoxia” and “Stain,” two songs that that showcases the band’s brutality and songwriting prowess. Hypoxia contains 13 brand new songs from the group consisting of Sevendust guitarist John Connolly, Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Phillips, Sevendust bassist Vince Hornsby and Tremonti guitarist Eric “E-ROCK” Friedman. Hypoxia is available now in various configurations at the link here: https://smarturl.it/Projected.
Hypoxia shows a band building on its established foundation while incorporating new and exciting elements. Following the brooding album intro “Consequences,” listeners are then greeted to the crushing guitar riffs of John Connolly to open the galloping track “Dead Weight,” setting the stage for the rest of the album’s journey. Projected shows great range on this latest offering, establishing hooky and singable moments in songs like “Stain,” “Take Aim,” and “Scars” while expertly crafting classic nu-metal styles in “The Thing That’s Real,” and “Hypoxia.” Songs like “Dark” and “Death Is Mostly Permanent” showcase the band’s ability to slow things down while still keeping a foot-stomping pulse. Fans will be sure to be headbanging in no time to the latest offering by these rock and metal stalwarts. Check out the first single “Hypoxia” here: https://youtu.be/Omj_NU8bVMg.
