Of heroes & gods

The hot and courageous snorting fighter sounds of these deeply upright ones have developed into something very special until today. And not only the name of the band is an absolute program - even the foundation became a sworn ritual.

Since 2007, everything at EISENHAUER has been revolving around the timeless ideals, values and powers that have always been embodied by impressively booming electric guitars.

On the second album with the striking title "Blessed Be The Hunter", the four men present themselves with mature material from the most interesting side of playing culture so far.

Sublime quintessence

Formed in the forges of Upper Franconia, VARUS is committed to a lengthy and all-round profound concept:
The equally independent as well as epic and aesthetic fusion of classical music, traditional Folk and pithy Metal.

The initial raw idea developed into a characteristic, dynamic SYMPHONIC FOLK METAL style that strikes an original balance between emotional, atmospheric, epic orchestrations and thunderous, dark guitar thunderstorms.

In 2014 the band released its debut album "Till The Sun Rises", now they are back in the scene with the brilliant successor "A New Dawn".

"The Rock Of The Clyde" is an evolution from RUADH's debut album "Sovereign". It has a much more melodic feel, yet has more visceral elements too.

The power of imagination

VELVET OCEAN is an ALTERNATIVE MELODIC METAL band from Oulu, Northern Finland. The story of the band began a couple of years ago as a co-writing project of the main singer Riitu and her husband, guitarist Jarkko 'Jake' Ronkainen.



As songs kept popping up the project soon evolved into a studio project with both session musicians and later band members joining in. Early in the pre-production stage Oulu symphonic orchestra cello players Arto Alikoski and Harri Österman joined as well as the established Finnish keyboard player Marco Sneck.

The debut album recorded in this way, which later got the title "Purposes And Promises", was handed over to Johan Örnborg and Jens Bogren for mixing and mastering at the well-known Fascination Street Studios.

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'.

Cutting clarity

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.

Official release:
August 10, 2019

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. 



[ Pic: Andy Grünitz ]

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"!

Official release:
