Serious Black was formed at the beginning of 2014 and since the released of their first album As Daylight Breaks (2015) they surely have become a huge success. In 2016 they are releasing their second album titled Mirrorworld, and after have toured Europe with the likes of Gamma Ray and Hammerfall, they crossed the Atlantic for a special show at ProgPower USA a few weeks ago. They are now are on the road for their first-ever Europan headlining tour this fall.
Mirrorworld the new album of Serious Black transcends from what they did with As Daylight Breaks, not only the album is more melodic but at the same time, they added a little more of aggression to their music. Songs like As Long as I’m Alive, Dying Hearts, Mirrorworld, and Castor Skies are the perfect example of the attitude and the plethora of talent that surrounds Serious Black.
One the things that surprise more about Serious Black is the level of accomplishment that this band had reached in less than 2 years since their debut album was released. They have not only achieved the goal of touring as a support band for Gamma Ray and Hammerfall, but they also made their North American debut at the famous ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta a few weeks ago and before the year ends they would have completed their first headlining tour in Europe, which is something that for many bands takes a long time to achieve.
To expand more on the success of the band we spoke with guitar player Bob Katsionis during the band’s stop in Atlanta, GA. We talked about Mirrorworld, ProgPower USA, and their ongoing headlining European tour.
