European Tour Dates 2019:

Saxon to release “The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live)” on August 2nd 2019

On August 2nd, 2019, Saxon, the British Heavy Metal vanguards, who continue to deliver their seminal metal music to sold-out venues worldwide, will salute their 40th Anniversary by releasing “The Eagle Has Landed 40 (Live)” via Militia Guard/Silver Lining Music, a cracking, crunching and wholly representative celebration of four decades as one of the UK’s leading heavy metal lights.

Diamond Head release official video for “The Coffin Train”

New Wave Of British Heavy Metal pioneers Diamond Head will issue their anticipated new full-length, “The Coffin Train” worldwide on Friday, May 24th, 2019, via Silver Lining Music. In celebration of the record’s release, the band is pleased to unveil the thought-provoking video for the album’s title track,
 

Enforcer - Zenith

Enforcer have been true darlings of the metal scene, with their cheerful classic inspired metal, youthful looks and silly spandex pants, making them look like the natural heirs to the throne that the old school metal gods are about to vacate… sooner or later… and while I have a first-hand account that the guys live and breathe, what they’re doing, I’ve been a little more critical of their past efforts than most.

Diamond Head release music video for new single “Death by Design”

Diamond Head - the Stourbridge, England born New Wave Of British Heavy Metal pioneers - return to the world stage with a new album, set for release May 24th, 2019, via Silver Lining Music.

The Coffin Train” is at once fresh and exuberant while also being a stone-cold classic slice of oldschool heavy metal excellence. Is it packed with the sort of riff-fueled power that founding member Brian Tatler led a genre and influenced the odd band or two with? It’s electric for sure... and then some.

Visigoth to release new 7-inch “Bells of Awakening” on May 24th 2019

2018 was the breakthrough year for American Heavy Metallers Visigoth, and 2019 is looking just as bright for the Salt Lake City powerforce!

On May 24th, 2019, Visigoth will release a 7" entitled “Bells of Awakening” with two brand new songs: “Fireseeker” and “Abysswalker”.

“Fireseeker” is now available on all digital outlets and can be heard below.

Amulet to release new studio album “The Inevitable War” on May 17th 2019

London metallers Amulet return with a new line-up and a monstrous sophomore album “The Inevitable War”, to be released on may 17th, 2019.

Founding guitarists Marek “Heathen” Steven and Nippy Blackford put together a killer new line-up who then spent several years crafting a genuine “statement of intent” return. The 9 track continues the bands song-and-riff-orientated no-bullshit sound but is enhanced by more impressive song structures and performances.

Holocaust - Elder Gods

Man, while I love the Scottish NWOBHM stalwarts Holocaust, who Metallica have famously covered on their “Garage Days” EP and who are returning after only three and a half years this time with a new album, instead of the decade long plus period of studio “draught” that seemed to affect the band for the latter part of the 00s, just by gazing at the artwork of their latest (ninth I think) album “Elder Gods”, I thought they’d gone completely bonkers and black metal at the same time!
