Moving tribute

Eight years after their last album "386 High Street North: Come Back to Eternity", Italian POWER METAL experts REVOLTONS are finally returning to the global scene.

The equally playful and epic mix, which is clearly influenced by bands like Symphony X, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden and Helloween, is actually typical of the formation's home country.

The content of the new and fifth album "Underwater Bells Pt. 2: October 9th 1963 - Act 1" revolves around the devastating catastrophe of October 9, 1963, when the Vajont dam in the Alps in northeastern Italy was overwhelmed by a tidal wave, what became known as the 'Vajont disaster'.

Straight from within

When the fellows launched HANGATYR in spring 2006, the stylistic direction of the idealists from Saxony and Central Thuringia was immediately clear:
cold, Nordic guitar riffs, paired with typical Thuringian melodies and German lyrics, inspired by the mythology that lives deep inside the creators, should shape the music.

In October 2019, the route once again led to Chemical Burn Studios in Bad Kösen, Germany. Together with Alexander Dietz, known from Heaven Shall Burn, the new compositions were refined, which can now be heard on "kalt":
relentlessly hard-hitting, uncompromising BLACK METAL anthems, from which the eternal spirit of the old and the true proudly emerges.

Time travel up to date

"In Control" is the title of the second album by the Dutch rockers HARDLAND. Even more than with the self-titled debut of 2017, the band has managed to create a completely different MELODIC ALTERNATIVE ROCK sound from very different influences.

In the continuation of the musical history of HARDLAND, the best of the 1970s and 1980s is once again transformed into the present:
striking melodies, varied vocals, beautiful keyboard parts and tasteful guitar work.

Class instead of mass!

"VII • Respect The Steel", the current successor to the 2015 released sampler "VI", proudly presents 13 Metal hopefuls, far off the undignified constructed mainstream.

Stylistically set up with a competent focus, the whole thing is an as stylishly homage to the classic, primeval Heavy Metal, as thereon one can experience also fully sworn Black Metal in all its dark splendor.

The emphatically traditionally designed, appropriately combative cover artwork comes from the capable hands of Serbian illustrator Dusan Markovic.

Even epic uplifting Pagan & Viking Metal gets featured on "VII • Respect The Steel". Once again compiled with lots of love, dedication and effort, the flow of songs, smoothly going into the ear, also includes martial-crisp Groove Thrash and melodically violent gripping, sovereign Death Metal.

Emotional enjoyment!

The fact that you are dealing with protagonists who have many years of experience and are therefore capable of multiple activities is already evident during the first minutes of listening. Guitarist Marcel and drummer Jan have known each other since their school days. The first band together started back in 1987.

It should be completely melodic and timelessly beautiful, with ear-friendly refrains and really grippy structures - together with a singer who is just perfect for the exquisite PROGRESSIVE MELODIC METAL style of the formation.

It's really an absolute reason to celebrate - the Schleswig-Holstein hopefuls are presenting their all-round exciting debut album "Dead Man's Diary"!

With full throttle into the Thrash epicenter!

For some years now, these Swiss have been known as convinced and, above all, fully capable thoroughbred idealists.

The THRASH METAL threesome with frontman Jonathan Brutschin have been completely confirmed again for their 2016 predecessor album "Toxic End" with a variety of fully enthusiastic to freaky reactions.

Now the musical terror continues ... FREAKINGS do themselves a great honor and present the new songs with the 4th album "Rise Of Violence" as a compositional sniper combo, which has been playculturally armed to the teeth.

Relentlessly emotional

The touching art of German tragicians RAVENFIELD stands for guitar-oriented, melancholy-soaked and authentic emotional DARK ROCK - a heavy floating mix out of late Sentenced, Lake Of Tears, Poisonblack, Charon, late Tiamat and End Of Green.

The debut album "Faith And Fall" was launched in the spring of 2019 - 'Dark Rock to kill happiness', as the band itself declares about - and simply nails it.

Official release:
