VENUS 5, ‘Heavy Metal Version of SPICE GIRLS’, performs live for the first time (video)

International Metallurgical Group VENUS 5 made its live debut last Saturday, July 9 at Rock of Zurbarán Burgos festival in Burgos, Spain. Fan-filmed video of the concert can be seen below.

VENUS 5The self-titled debut album from was released last month via Frontiers Music Srl.

VENUS 5which has been called by some the “heavy metal version of SPICE GIRLS“, is composed of five singers: the Italian Greta DiIacovo (a.k.a Copy; also from SICK AND BEAUTIFULanother one Borders recording artist), Slovenia Karmen KlincSerbia Jelena MilovanovicSweden Tezzi Persson (also from INFINITE & DIVINEanother one Borders recording artist) and Albania Erina Seitllari. Each singer is an exceptional singer in their own right, so combining all five together produces amazing results.

Born from an idea imagined by Serafino Perugino, Borders president and head of A&R, VENUS 5 is poised to be one of the freshest and most exciting new musical perspectives to emerge from the European rock and metal scene in recent years. Putting the singers and musicians together took a huge amount of time and energy as the right talent had to be in place to work together cohesively and with real chemistry. After all, having so many lead singers in a band is a daunting task, but the end result is that five exceptional up-and-coming vocal stars have been brought together from different musical backgrounds with the vision of creating a monster album.

Of course, many people will see five women and instantly refer to a “metal version” of the pop projects, but make no mistake, the vocal talents of the singers and the music are front and center. Musically, the songs are a team work of the producer Aldo Lonobile (SECRET SPHERE, AVALON BY TIMO TOLKKI, SWEET FORGOTTEN) and his team of writers, including Jacques E. (RACESex-AMARANTH) who co-produced the song, Stefan Hellblad (IN TEMPTATIONwho also plays guitar on the album), and By Aldeheim (DEF LEPPARD, HEAT, STANDOUR).

Carmen said, “Recording this album was one of the best experiences for me. The whole team got along so well, everyone was very professional and relaxed at the same time. Together with the girls, we became like sisters and I think that’s the kind of energy that you can also feel on the album. I think the album is a real masterpiece, and everyone can find something to their liking in it. “It’s very powerful, emotional, energetic, joyful and motivating. There’s something about it that really moves you in any possible way. After all, isn’t that what music is all about?”

Copy said: “At the beginning, when we were talking about the VENUS 5 project, one thing we aim for was to respect and enhance each girl’s personality. It’s something that once we met was undeniably impossible to avoid – you can feel our every energy in the songs and in the videos and I personally think that’s the most interesting fact about the group. There are so many shades of color in this album — and not just in our hairstyles, as some of you might joke! ;)”

Tezzi said: “I was quite nervous to go to Italy to meet the rest of the girls, but that feeling disappeared instantly when we met. It all felt so natural and easy and they really are a fantastic girl group. We we bonded immediately. The songs have a ‘popish’ metal vibe with melodies that stick in your head. I’m really happy with this album.”

Jelena said: “It’s been an amazing experience to be a part of this thing. The five of us saw each other and the connection was instantaneous, the respect was instantaneous. Everyone was so talented and genuine, crazy! I feel like you get from this album is different and probably heavier than you expected, so give it a try, be amazed!”

He has said, “Being part of the band is totally awesome! From the first moment we met, I felt a spark with each of the girls! The album sounds great. It’s rock n’ roll man!”
