Info zu Alien (Deluxe Edition)
Alien is the critically acclaimed fifth album from Sydney metallers Northlane. The album proved a watershed moment in the band’s career, raking in worldwide global praise and accolades and landing in countless Best Of The Year lists. At home, the album debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, gave the band their third win at the 2019 ARIA Awards (making them the first artist to achieve three wins in the Hard Rock/Heavy Metal category) and was nominated for the coveted triple j Album Of The Year.
Alien is easily the most personal statement of Northlane’s career, and particularly so for lead vocalist Marcus Bridge, who rips open his traumatic childhood and bears all his pain and healing on the album. While some long-time listeners might assume that the title is a continuation of the space and futuristic themes that have characterised previous Northlane releases, it’s instead a reflection of the alienation Bridge felt as a child due to his situation.
Produced by the band themselves, the album was recorded at Chris Blancato’s studio in Sydney, where Northlane recorded their first EP, 2010’s Hollow Existence. Bridge did his vocals at Sydney’s Electric Sun Studios, where the quintet made their 2011 debut album, Discoveries. For a band marking their 10th anniversary in 2019, Alien is a bold leap forward; the work of a group fighting their way out of their corner by moving forward rather than looking back.
“"Enemy of the Night" was the last song to be completed and is personally my favourite song from the "Alien" sessions. It has a similar, storytelling style to Freefall as it recounts memories and experiences from my childhood of my father falling deeper into addiction and the desperate things people will do to satisfy those needs. Despite his best efforts, he was never able to beat his demons. This song is the missing piece to the "Alien" puzzle and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it”, says Marcus Bridge.

Australian metalcore quintet Northlane always hit audiences hard with their incendiary breakdowns and cerebral musicianship in concert. Whether ticket buyers jump into the pandemonium of the mosh pit or observe the musical mastery from afar, the group’s stunning juxtaposition of grace and grit is sure to please on epic throwdowns like “Obelisk”, “Rot”, and “Impulse”. Lead singer Marcus Bridge embodies this duality in each angst-driven anthem as he combines fierce screams and angelic strains that are sure to inspire fans to sing along as well as headbang. True metalcore fanatics won’t want to miss these masters of mayhem as they bring their ferocious sound to cities across North America.
Taking their name from the song “North Lane” by Architects, Sydney’s Northlane have aligned themselves with the history and future of the metalcore movement from the very start. After self-recording their debut EP Hollow Existence in 2010, the group inked a deal with metal label UNFD and released their full-length follow-up Discoveries the next year. After touring with Parkway Drive in 2013 they released their sophomore album Singularity, which rocketed to No. 1 on the Australian iTunes Albums Chart. Unfortunately, just as their star was rising vocalist Adrian Fitipaldes resigned from the band in 2014 due to his declining health. Marcus Bridge stepped in and immediately got to work on their 2015 album Node, which featured more clean vocals and atmospherics than previous albums. Northlane continues to explore the dramatic contrasts of their sound at their live concerts, converting new fans wherever they play.
