Marking their first album since 2008’s highly regarded The God Of All MistakesThe Stalker finds Eminence’s extreme approach to melodic metal pushed even further, as exemplified by “No Code.” Regarding the lyrical meaning behind the album’s first single, guitarist/founding memberAlan Wallace shares, “We wrote the song while reflecting on the problems we’re faced with here in Brazil, such as corruption, unemployment, and even no food for Brazilian citizens. It’s a really hard time for our country.”

Recorded at Minerio de Ferro Studios in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, The Stalker reunites Eminence with Danish producer Tue Madsen (Moonspell, The Haunted, Sick Of It All), who also producedThe God Of All Mistakes. “He is a great producer and a good friend of the band,” explains Wallace. “We spent an entire year producing this album, and worked really hard together to make The Stalker become a reality.” In addition to “No Code,” Paulo Jr. appears on the album’s title track and “Veins Of Memories” as well. “It was a great pleasure to once again work with my dear friend,” says Wallace, who also plays with the Sepultura bassist in the Brazilian metal projectThe Unabomber FilesThe Stalker also features a guest appearance from bassist Paulo Roberto Diniz, Jr. (aka PJ) of famed Brazilian pop rock band Jota Quest on the song “Unfold.”

The group made its live U.S. debut this past fall during New York’s CMJ Music Marathon, while sailing the Hudson River on a boat with Prong. That performance led The Village Voice to declaring Eminence as “a band to watch.” The band made a triumphant return to the States last spring at SXSW, with plans for a proper North American tour in the works. Before that, though, Eminence will embark on a European headlining tour later this summer.

Eminence consists of:

Alan Wallace (guitars)

Bruno Paraguay (vocals)

Andre Marcio (drums)

Thiago Correa (bass)
