Dark Passage signs with Rockshots Records and announces debut album “The Legacy of Blood”

Italy’s heavy metal band Dark Passage has inked a worldwide record deal with Rockshots Records for the release of the debut album “The Legacy of Blood”. Formed back in 2012, band’s intention is to merge the lyrical, melodic and epic concept of classic heavy metal with a rhythmic style closer to the teutonic and the more melodic thrash metal.

Rockshots Records states:

Ironsword - Servants of Steel

I was never a big fan of Manilla Road, due to their poor vocals and thus I could never become a fan of their more pedestrian offsprings, the Portugese Ironsword, who seem to follow them blow for blow with maybe a tint of Omen and epic era Bathory, in how they tend to build their riffs and melodies. Tann’s vocals are as poor as they ever were, with Hellroadie from Manilla also providing vocals on a couple of tracks.
