Maltese Doom/Death lunatics VICTIMS OF CREATION have almost completed their debut album “Symmetry Of Our Plagued Existence”! The album will include 5 songs that will lead you in a world full of sorrow, pain and darkness. It’s not for the faint-hearted!
Before the album will see the light of day on 26th April, 2013 the band gives you a short update from the studio:
Cyclone Empire is proud to announce the release of “Effigies Of Desolation” double CD by Germany’s finest Death/Doom outfit OPHIS!
The release will include an exclusive re-issue of their highly acclaimed debut album “Streams Of Misery” and their longtime sold-out EP “Nostrae Mortis Signaculum” plus some previously unreleased bonus material. The exclusive Digipack reissue is going to be released on 26th April, 2013 accompanied with a performance at the famous “Doom Shall Rise Festival”.
Another newly formed band form Italy that’s not into power metal (that’s “weird” indeed!) but more into prog rock/metal music. The band was founded after the three original members, the bassist Enrico Sandri, (Utopia), the keyboardist Dario Di Pasquale (ZEN) & the vocalist/guitarist Riccardo Nardocci (solo) came together and decided to mix their different musical backgrounds and create some music from scratch.
After finishing off a very eventful and busy past year of promotions for their previous album release, "Bilateral", acclaimed Norwegian Progsters LEPROUS had directly entered studios to start the recordings for their next album after wrapping up their "European Progressive Assault" headlining tour in September-October 2012.
The new album is entitled "Coal" and will be released on May 20th, 2013 in Europe and May 28th, 2013 in North America via InsideOut Music.
Hypnotheticall is an Italian prog rock/metal band that has been around since 1999. Having suffered various line-up changes through the years, “A Farewell to Gravity”, is their newest & sophomore album. This time they have a new vocalist, Marco Ciscato and a new keyboardist Davide Pretto.
InsideOut Music is extremely pleased to announce that they have signed a worldwide deal with the band SOUND OF CONTACT for the release of their debut album "Dimensionaut" on May 20th, 2013. The brainchild of Simon Collins (son of legendary musician Phil Collins) and keyboardist/co-producer Dave Kerzner, Sound of Contact marks the beginning of something that Collins had always wanted to put his hand to after ten years of promoting his own solo career. With the help of Kerzner as well as Matt Dorsey, Kelly Nordstrom and Hannah Stobart (Wishing Tree) with an album mixed by Nick Davis (Genesis, XTC, Marillion) this vision has come to fruition.
Swedish visionary metallers SOILWORK will hit Australia in October to present their most recent effort, "The Living Infinite", live.
"The Living Infinite" marks not only the 9th studio album by one of the most important and influential bands in melodic death metal, it also is the first double album in the genre's history and received raving reviews worldwide.
Previously hailed as a young guitar virtuoso, and a protégé of Walter Trout, Danny Bryant is building a formidable reputation as a leading British blues rock guitar heavyweight in his own right. On Monday 6th May, Jazzhaus Records will release his new studio album "Hurricane" in the UK.
Recorded as a power trio, the new album was produced by Richard Hammerton (Manic Street Preachers). The nine songs showcase the evolution of Bryant as both guitarist and songwriter. The album bursts with power-fueled originals, groove-driven up-tempo songs, and soulful blues ballads.
Swedish metallers VINDICTIV has inked a deal with UK based label Escape Music Ltd. The band's third album, "Cage of Infinity", was mixed by Lars Chriss (LION’S SHARE), and will mark the recording debut of their new singer, Marco Sandron (ex-EDEN'S CURSE).
"With the new album we are heading in a more straight-ahead heavy metal direction compared to the first two releases. I made an effort to make the album cohesive, but as a notorious shredder, I couldn't restrain myself completely", laughs band leader and guitar wiz Stefan Lindholm.
Atomic Stuff is pleased to welcome in its roster the Trieste based metal band SilentLie, for the promotion of the EP "Blood Under Snow", which is scheduled for release in Spring 2013.
