Owl Company is an alternative metal band from São Paulo, Brazil with power to burn! The band combines hard rock influences from the 70s to the 90s with modern rage and brutality to create a sound that is fresh, aggressive, and engaging.
In 2014, Enrico Minelli and Felipe Ruiz began writing songs together. It wasn’t long before they recruited Thaigo Biasoli to complete the band. As they continued writing new material and performing locally throughout 2016, they began to record the songs in their home studio, ultimately tracking a full album’s worth of material. In April of 2017, they self-released their debut album Horizon, and added Fabio Yamamoto and Bruno Solera to the band. The album was well-received by the press, and they traveled to the U.S.A. for a run of tour dates along the West Coast. While performing at the Viper Room in Los Angeles, the band caught the attention of producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More, 3 Doors Down, Maroon 5).
After the tour was done, they headed back to Los Angeles and recorded a single entitled ‘Pieces’ with Matt Wallace producing. After completion, it was shopped to several dozen labels and it wasn’t long before the band received a few responses. After careful consideration they signed with Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, A Breach of Silence, Bobaflex). “It’s an amazing accomplishment for us to be part of Eclipse Records,” says vocalist Enrico Minelli. “We’re all super excited!” Immediately after signing, the band headed back to Los Angeles with Matt Wallace to complete a new full-length album for Eclipse Records to release later in 2018.
Real rock is all about power. The music has got to have power to command attention, and fill a venue with dedicated, rabid fans. It needs to have a special electric energy that surges up the spine and turns heads. Owl Company brings all of this and more to the party. They craft memorable, melodic rock music that flexes it’s muscles, and instantly makes you want to hear more. After just one listen, its easy to see that Owl Company are force of nature and this band not be ignored.
Owl Company recently wrapped up a new full-length album with producer Matt Wallace, entitled Iris. The album was released on November 9, 2018 via Eclipse Records.
