Eregion to release new studio album “Age of Heroes” on December 13th 2019

Italian power metal band Eregion has inked a worldwide deal with Rockshots Records for the release of their sophomore album “Age of Heroes”, coming out on December 13th, 2019.

“Age of Heroes” is a conceptual album about heroes and Gods of the ancient times. Ranging from power to folk metal, their music can be better described as a blending of classical heavy metal and power metal vibes in the style of Iron Maiden, Sabaton and Alestorm.

Millennium - A New World

Millennium made quite a name for themselves, on the strength of an eponymous 1984 album, which has achieved cult status, among fans, with it pleasurable, if not unspectacular traditional NWOBHM styling. They broke up a few years later after a series of demos (that No Remorse Records GR later compiled and released) and the band was resurrected in 2016, largely by the singer Mark Duffy, with a new line up around him.

RAM - The Throne Within

I found all the media frenzy around Ram’s previous album to be largely unfounded as their poor man’s monotonous take on Judas Priest’s brand of heavy metal, crossed with a little bit of how bands like Wolf and early Enforcer tend to interpret that very sound, hasn’t been much refined in two decades since the band’s conception.
 
Without being truly bad, Ram’s style is too basic, repetitive and lacks both the flair, as well as variety that made other bands beacons of the genre.
