Kamelot premiere new lyric video for “Vespertine (My Crimson Bride)”

The Shadow Empire Tour is currently all over Europe! Kamelot embark on their headlining tour together with their label mates in Visions Of Atlantis and special guest Evergrey.

To celebrate the critically acclaimed and heavy chart hitting record “The Shadow Theory” (2018, Napalm Records) the band is not only busy on the road, but also premiering a brand new lyric video for the track “Vespertine (My Crimson Bride)”.

Avantasia - Moonglow

Tobias Sammet seems to be mostly occupied with the pompous supergroup that Avantasia has turned into, rather than Edguy these past few years, but that’s to be expected, as it seemingly is a far more lucrative endeavor, mirroring the case of Savatage and TSO, with the latter raking in a lot more, thus leading to the languoring of the former for years.

Bloodbound - Rise of the Dragon Empire

For the most part Sweden’s Bloodbound have released some pretty good albums. Fronted by one Patrik Johansson, who took the reins from the excellent Urban Breed (ex-Tad Morose, Serious Black etc), who quite capably managed to replace such a great vocalist, the band continued releasing some fairly impressive albums since he joined them back in 2010.

Týr - Hel

Týr returns after a six year hiatus, that some festivals “sold” as a farewell, with a new album for Metal Blade Records along with a couple of new members in the form of a new drummer Tadeusz Rieckmann and guitarist Attila Vörös (who most might remember from his Nevermore/Sanctuary live sessions) both from Hungary, thus breaking the tradition of the band of featuring Faroesian musicians only.

Týr launches music video for new single “Ragnars Kvæði”

This Friday (March 8th), the Faroe Islands’ Týr will release their eighth full-length, “Hel”, via Metal Blade Records.

“Hel” is a collection of ruthlessly melodic and irresistibly compelling progressive folk metal that will immediately resonate with any who have followed the band at any point over the two decades of their storied career.

Blind Guardian’s Twilight Orchestra to release “Legacy of the Dark Lands” in November 2019

Promising to be one of the most ambitious projects in metal history, Blind Guardian’s upcoming release will be well worth the wait.

The idea to record an orchestral album originally formed in the minds of the two leading lights of the Blind Guardian universe - guitarist André Olbrich and singer Hansi Kürsch - during the 1990’s when Blind Guardian started to use orchestral elements to enhance their opulent sound.

Avantasia releases new lyric video for “Starlight”

Having reached #2 a total of three times now, Avantasia frontman Tobias Sammet can finally say he has conquered the official German album charts by landing a #1 with his sensational new album “Moonglow”.

The album stormed the charts in the UK too, reaching #38 in the National Charts, #1 in the Rock Charts and #2 in the Indie Charts. To celebrate this triumphant success, the elated band leader has released a lyric video for new track, “Starlight”.
