Heavy rock band Cascavell releases new single “Bluehouse Terror”

Heavy rock band Cascavell releases new single “Bluehouse Terror”
Cascavell presents their new single “Bluehouse Terror” on all digital platforms. “Bluehouse Terror” was recorded in Brazil, in March 2023 and had the partnership of Heitor Purcino and Nacle Nabak in the musical production.

“These are the names that help a lot in the production part, writing songs is always a walk for the 4 of us, but having someone who is more down to earth about how we perform everything is very useful. Heitor and Nacle are old friends ours and staying in a relaxed and familiar environment to be able to produce everything without stress is a very key point for us.” – mentions the band.

“The guy enters the bar, goes dancing with a girl and discovers that she is a vampire. The lyrics that we write always have a very specific meaning for one or more members, but the cool part of the process is being able to make up that so that each person makes a different interpretation of what they are experiencing at the moment. Everything is 100% figurative.” – Cascavell.

Cascavell brings influences from bands like; Aerosmith, Elton John and Motley Crue, with more 70s dynamics and with a hint that goes from Aerosmith, Guns n Roses to Mark Ronson. Following this line of reasoning, the band recorded the instruments and vocals with equipment from the 70s/80s. The band is formed by Johnny Wizzard (guitars), Lizz Kick (drums), Yago (vocals) and Billy Temper (bass and keyboards).
