GLORYFUL: New Album

The new GLORYFUL album "End Of The Night" will be released on August 26, 2016 via Massacre Records!

The album will continue the storyline of its predecessor "Ocean Blade": After the tragic demise of Captain McGuerkin, his soul returns on "End Of The Night" to recruit the descendants of his crew and to lead them into battle to avenge his death.

This is also reflected in the cover artwork, which was once again created by Kris Verwimp.

The band comments:
"The cover artwork features the shield of the newly crowned King Guerkin, who's been freed from the realm of the dead. You can clearly see that his grave at the bottom of the sea has left its marks: The shield's covered with algae and framed by octopuses. The trident with the sacred star and the crossed sabers symbolize past and future battles and the black wings are those of a raven, who's said to be escorting the dead back to Earth."

"Grey Sky Over Black Town" was produced and mixed by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studio. Lasse Hoile is once again responsible for the cover artwork.

LONEWOLF: Line-up Changes

LONEWOLF has a new guitarist! The band recently announced that Alex Hilbert decided to leave the band due to personal reasons.

Vocalist Jens comments:

»Alex fascinated me with his amazing/unique sense and feeling for music and his incredible talent. I learned so much playing at his side/composing with him. You'll hear on "The Heathen Dawn" leads & solos that I dare to say are some of the best he ever made! A great conclusion to his "Lonewolf years", this album is the greatest gift he could deliver us for his last recording!«

Michael Hellström, band leader of Elvenstorm, is stepping into Alex's shoes and has joined LONEWOLF as new guitarist!

Jens about Michael joining LONEWOLF:

»Replacing Alex is not an easy thing, but I do know one thing: Michael is the right man for the job, and the brother-in-arms that we needed. Technically, of course, but especially humanely.
A brother is gone, another arrives. In the darkness there is always a light: Believe me, one thing is for sure... We are far from being buried and there are a lot of beautiful things to come!«

LONEWOLF's new album "The Heathen Dawn" will be released on May 20, 2016 via Massacre Records.

ILLDISPOSED: Album Title + Artwork

ILLDISPOSED aren't only celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, no, they will also release a new album in less than 3 months!

Guitarist Jakob comments:

»On May 27th we will release our new album "Grey Sky Over Black Town", which will also mark our 25th anniversary as a band.

It's one of the more oldschool albums of our career, showing that we didn't forget how to write grinding, crushing songs as well as mid-tempo grooviness.

The cover artwork by Lasse Hoile is complimenting the dark atmosphere of the music and the lyrics. It's all packed with sheer brutality.«

The band has also released a lot of summer festival dates, including the Heavy Agger Metal Festival, Summer Breeze or Rockharz Open Air!

ILLDISPOSED's new album "Grey Sky Over Black Town" will be released on May 27, 2016 via Massacre Records!

New Signing: EGOKILLS

Put those colored heart-shaped glasses as well as the the psychedelic shirts on, and don't forget to wear flowers in your hair - EGOKILLS are going to release their debut soon!

EGOKILLS adopted their "hippie metal" tag from a live review of one of their festival shows. It seemed fitting since the music is diverse and melody-infused metal, but the lyrics bring in the hippie dimension: the universe, inner growth, peace & love.

The members of the band have long crafted their skill to breathe life into music, and have found a solid balance between groovy riffs, big choruses and beautiful melodies.

EGOKILLS already played major Finnish festivals and a good number of club shows during the past few years and have a quickly growing fanbase.

Take a deep breath, make sure you're comfortable and relaxed, open your mind and hear what EGOKILLS is channeling to you in the form of the upcoming debut "Creation", which will be released on April 22, 2016 via Massacre Records!

Line-up

• Janne Selo - Vocals

ELM STREET: Album Artwork

Australia's finest ELM STREET recently revealed the artwork of their upcoming new album "Knock 'Em Out... With A Metal Fist"!

The killer cover was created by the legendary Ken Kelly, who also created the artwork for Kiss and Manowar, among others!

Vocalist Ben Batres of ELM STREET comments:

"We have had the privilege of working with some of the world's best and Ken Kelly is right at the top of the list when it comes to art! It is very surreal that the band now joins a client list that includes KISS, Manowar, Rainbow and Ace Frehley.
The concept of overcoming adversity is a theme that runs throughout the whole album. Not just in one aspect of life but in many that we have gone through ourselves, and I'm sure that many will relate to.
Ken created a piece which visually relates to each song from the new album and at the same time reflects the style you expect to hear when you see an album cover like this.
Merging both the art and sound will hopefully deliver a classic album to both old and new fans!"

Ken Kelly himself also said something about the collaboration with ELM STREET:

"I was very proud to be offered the opportunity to tackle the assignment of painting Elm Street's new album cover, 'Knock 'Em Out... With A Metal Fist'. I knew this group is a tremendous force in the Heavy Metal industry, and of course I wanted to play a role in creating their cover art if I could.
The idea for the album at first seemed relatively simple; a metal fist firing at you; but soon it became more complex because we wanted and needed it to have a NOW look! Lucky for me, the band was there to help me create what you see before you!
Knowing that the music will KILL! I feel confident that I've done my best to complete my part of what the band set out to do, create a world-beater album! I enjoyed the challenge and hopefully our paths will cross again."

Ermin Hamidovic recorded, mixed and mastered ELM STREET's upcoming album at Systematic Productions in Melbourne, Australia.

ELM STREET's new album "Knock 'Em Out... With A Metal Fist" will be released on June 25, 2016 via Massacre Records.

THORNBRIDGE: Album Artwork

THORNBRIDGE are going to release their debut album "What Will Prevail" next month, and have now revealed the album's cover artwork.

It's been created by Juanjo Castellano Rosado, who worked with bands like Vomitory or Portrait.

The artwork has some parallels to the album's title track, explains bassist Burghi:

"The song 'What Will Prevail' is about all those, who refused to yield, who held on to their beliefs even when they were tortured and killed. It's about those who will be remembered."

Burghi also stated that the album doesn't follow any theme, but that it's set in a fantastic medieval setting.

"What Will Prevail" was recorded and mixed by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann and mastered by Dennis Koehne. Philip Dennis "Sly" Schunke of Van Canto contributed guest vocals on the song "Eternal Life".

THORNBRIDGE also recently shot the official video clip for the song "The Dragon's Reborn". Keep your eyes on the band's facebook page for pictures from the video shoot.

New Signing: WICKED MARAYA

Guess who's back?

WICKED MARAYA - and they're finally going to release the long lost album "Lifetime In Hell" on Massacre Records!

The band has been active since 1991 and has already released 3 albums: "Cycles" (1994), "No Hope For Humanity" (1996) as well as "Counterculture" (1997). They're a force on stage, and have toured with bands such as Metal Church, Widowmaker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Skyclad, Superjoint Ritual & Great White in the US and abroad.

"Lifetime In Hell" was originally planned to be the band's 1991 debut, but due to unforeseen circumstances with the independent record label they first signed to, "Cycles" became the band's official debut instead.

With legendary Producer Jim Morris, WICKED MARAYA recorded their 9 song effort at Morrisound Recording in Tampa, Florida. A heavy, bombastic and raw album, "Lifetime In Hell" is WICKED MARAYA at their earliest, hungry stage. An album setting the pre-cursor to the "Cycles"-sound with big, moody vocals and twin harmony guitar work!

Now, after 18 years, for the first time since 1998, WICKED MARAYA is proud to finally release "Lifetime In Hell", including 2 brand new, classic sounding songs - "Fall From Grace" and "Suicidal Dawn"!

WICKED MARAYA's 4th album "Lifetime In Hell" is set to be released in spring 2016 via Massacre Records.

Line-up

FALCO - Vocals
John Iadevaio - Bass
