STORMWARRIOR JOINS DRAGONIGHT AGENCY
Posted by: warlordtony on Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 07:06 PM
Bands' News We are happy to announce, that the German Speed / Heavy Metal force STORMWARRIOR joined the DRAGONIGHT AGENCY! STORMWARRIOR are known worldwide for their unique style combining True Heavy Metal anthems with the concept of Nordic mythology. Hailing from Northern Germany and greatly inspired by the 80's metal scene, especially the Hamburg Metal godfathers like Helloween and Running Wild, the band was founded by Lars Ramcke. After releasing 2
demo tapes and playing dozens of live shows, Stormwarrior finally got the attention of one of their all time idols Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray/ex-Helloween) and recorded their selftitled debut album with him in Hamburg based Hansen Studios. The album hit the stores in July 2002 and praise from all corners
of the globe has been streaming in since then. Successful festival appearances at the Wacken Open (Ger), Gates Of Metal & Motala Metal Festival (Swe), a tour with Iron Savior and the EP "Heavy Metal Fire" followed. End of 2003 STORMWARRIOR entered Hansen Studios again to record the strongly
awaited second album "Northern Rage" which was released in June 2004 and proved once more that Stormwarrior are on the right path to reach the level of the bands that had once inspired them. After the successful release of "Northern Rage" they were invited to support Gamma Ray on their Japan tour
and to play all the big festivals like Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock (UK), MANOWAR's Magic Circle Festival and Earthshaker during the past summers. And besided proving that they are one of the hottest live acts of our times STORMWARRIOR added a special set to their live show, which they played
together with Kai Hansen celebrating old Helloween classics of the glorious "Walls" era. Now the band is back with their 3rd studio album "Heading Northe", recorded in their own "Thunderhall Studio" and mixed by Piet Sielck (Savage Circus, Iron Savior). The final mastering was done by Tommy Hansen
(Helloween, Hammerfall, Pretty Maids a.o.) in his Jailhouse Studios in Denmark. Much like a thunderstorm, "Heading Northe" is full of power and energy. Riffs cutting like razorblades, pushing drum and bass attacks and melodies that stay etched in your mind! With "Heading Northe" Stormwarrior
stay true to their music, measuring up to the highest standards - that's pure metal without any mediocrity!

Remastered edition of New Eden's album coming in June!
Posted by: warlordtony on Friday, May 30, 2008 - 12:00 AM
Bands' News When it comes to power metal, it’s not easy to come up with an original formula that would conjoin pure heaviness, catchy melodies and top-notch musical skills. Fortunately, New Eden is one of these bands that manage to get the job done and deliver a prime selection of tasty riffs and memorable vocals. Metal Mind Productions presents the re-release of the group’s second LP, “Obscure Master Plan” which shows exactly how a modern power album should sound! The album, first released in 1999, is a power metal masterpiece, capturing the sheer essence of the genre and improving it with the addition of speed and progressive metal elements. The ten tracks included on “Obscure Master Plan” range from heavy metal anthems to thrashing monstrosities and progressive elegies. New Eden managed to capture the retro sound of 80’s heavy metal and confront it with a truly modern approach, backed with some amazing guitar riffs and impressive vocal lines. Easily comparable to classic releases by Iced Earth, Symphony X or Sanctuary, “Obscure Master Plan” is definitely one of the best US power metal albums of the 90s.

The remastered edition of the album will be available on 23rd June 2008 in Europe and 5th August 2008 in USA (via MVD). New digipak edition is limited to 2000 copies.

First DVD release by Artillery!!!
Posted by: warlordtony on Friday, April 25, 2008 - 06:26 PM
Bands' News Artillery - back in the 80's they were one of the biggest European thrash sensations on the scene characterized by intense, energetic riffing and unique vocals of Flemming Ronsdorf, somewhat reminiscent of Slayer and Megadeth from the same era. The band was formed in 1982 in Taastrup, in the suburbs of Copenhagen, Denmark. The band members were: guitarists Jorgen Sandau and Michael Stützer, bassist Morten Stützer, drummer Carsten Nielsen and singer Carsten Lohmann. Their debut album "Fear of Tomorrow" and the follow-up "Terror Squad" have gained a legendary status, becoming some of the most thrilling thrash releases of the late 80's period. Their first album for Roadrunner Records, "By Inheritance", repeated the impressive success of the previous LPs. Flemming Rasmussen finally crafted a more than competitive sound for the band which was often compared with Metallica's "Master Of Puppets". Unfortunately, after that Artillery was put on hold for almost 9 years, to ultimately return in 1999 with another amazing release, "B.A.C.K.". Today, the band still remains active, although there are no signs of a new recorded material yet. During the wait, the fans were granted a unique chance to rediscover the band’s whole discography in one exclusive box set which was released by Metal Mind Productions in August 2007. Special collector’s edition of the “Through The Years” contains 4 Artillery albums plus 32 page booklet.

AXEMASTER happenings
Posted by: warlordtony on Saturday, March 08, 2008 - 02:30 AM
Bands' News Here are the latest news from Axemaster camp:

While the band finished the music for the new CD and turned the recording over to new singer Dan Kaisk to lay down the vocals for what will be BY FAR the best Axemaster ever, there has been some news........ .....

The band's release "5 Demons (Imperative is their Demise)" from 1991 has been added to Smog Veil Recors' i-tunes roster for downloading (joining "Blessing in the Skies"). "5 Demons" was the last release the band did while still active and the last time we released all new music; it's my personal favorite of all the old Axemaster releases. Check it out at http://www.smogveil .com/ecom/.

Sol Music Management ( http://www.solmusic management. com/) hooked the band up with the Independent Artist Company and KAIC to create a page which includes two of the band's most popular old songs to specifically be downloaded by radio stations for airplay. The songs have gotten good response from several shows/stations. You can see the page at http://iacmusic. com/artist. aspx?id=93089.

VIRON News
Posted by: warlordtony on Monday, March 05, 2007 - 01:16 AM
Bands' News NEW CD
Viron are currently in the process of writing new songs for their next CD. Their debut "NWOGHM" (Sonic Age/Twilight) was a huge success and the band is still happy with it. There won΄t be any changes in style or recording method (NWOGHM was recorded partially live without triggered drums or guitar-pods) and they will keep on being diverse on the next CD. Again the songs will be based on classic Heavy Metal with short "trips" into speed, thrash and doom and they will continue sounding more US-based or British than German. One of the new songs reminds of early Vicious Rumors, another is the most epic tune Viron have ever written. The CD will be recorded in August 2007 again at www.kohlekeller.de . And the label? Viron had several offers and now it seems like they will sign with a German company within the next weeks. More details soon...

---------------------------------------------------
Ion Vein main man, Chris Lotesto, issued the following
statement, "We have officially parted ways with the UK's
Now and Then Records who have apparently gone under. What
could have been a very promising relationship ending up
being nothing more than a complete joke! We still have no
idea what happened with our last album, Reigning Memories,
as the label would never divulge ANY information to us and
then dropped off the face of the earth. I guess they are
out of the business from what second hand information I
can gather but the last thing we expected was for them to
turn out to be yet another useless piece of music business
shit. Oh well."

DAVID WAYNE's Metal Church press release
Posted by: warlordtony on Tuesday, June 14, 2005 - 03:20 AM
Bands' News David Wayne’s Metal Church
Press Release
June 13, 2005



On May 10th, 2005 we lost a true brother and close friend, Reverend David Wayne. As many already know, David was returning to the metal scene with us, the band members of “Reverend,” labeled as “David Wayne’s Metal Church (DWMC).” His sole goal was to try and get metal to be METAL again, at the same time drawing attention towards our return.



When a band mate dies the remaining members have to make a decision; continue on with the same beliefs, values, and direction, or stop playing together and pursue other projects. In our case, David left us specific instructions. After a period of mourning and in David Wayne’s honor, we will follow through with the “Godfather of Metal’s” wishes.



As of the date of this press release, “David Wayne’s Metal Church” no longer exists; however, in the pursuit of true heavy metal we are announcing the reformation of “REVEREND!”



“Reverend” is:

Davey Lee, Guitar

Nacho Vara, Guitar

Jesse Vara, Drums

Brendon Kyle, Bass



We are working on our older material plus the new collaborated songs with lyrics by David Wayne and are in search of a lead vocalist. We are not seeking a replacement for David Wayne, but a vocalist who wants metal to be metal and carry on the tradition and give justice to the lyrics and music of “REVEREND!”



Interested persons should send an 8x10 Photo, resume, and a CD of his/her vocal abilities to: Reverend, 404 Riverside Drive, Pipe Creek TX 78063

GAMMA RAY FINISH WORK ON THEIR NEW ALBUM!
Posted by: warlordtony on Wednesday, May 25, 2005 - 01:40 AM
Bands' News Gamma Ray have recently finished the final mixing of their new album which
was recorded at the Hansen Studios in Hamburg. The album includes 11 tracks
which represent all of the characteristic strengths of the bands musical career
to date. The album title is 'MAJESTIC' and is scheduled for a release late
September. Until then the band will undetake worldwide promotional activities
and in parallel they also have to move their Hamburg studio to a new
Location because the actual building will be completely rebuilt this summer.

You can meet GAMMA RAY during summer at the following European Festivals:
24.06. Balingen, Germany, BANG YOUR HEAD Festival
16.07. Helsinki, Finland, TUSKA Festival

The album release will be followed by a worldwide headline tour which is in
the planning stage at the moment.
Further to this, the Gamma Ray website will be relaunched with a completely
new design and a dedicated Fan Club member area in June. Fan Club Members who
haven't received the Fan Club Newsletter in February by post and everyone
who is interested in joining the bands official Fan Club should send an email
to the new Fan Club email address: _GammaRayFC@aol.com_ to receive
further information.


Here are some direct words from the band:

Dear Friends
Yes, we know it's been a long time without any real news and visible
activity from the band!

But, since December 2004 we have been working on the production of the new
album and it was a long period of blood sweat and tears, but also of joy and
pleasure. Everyone in the band went through some personal suffering or difficulties
during this time and occasionally we had the feeling that something or someone
wanted to stop us from making this record.
Finally, two months ago, we got the message that we had to leave our studio
complex at the end of May because some sharks bought the whole building and
had nothing more constructive in mind than kicking out all the bands that
were rehearsing there only to rebuild it into a storage place for rich peoples
dirty attorney files or whatever.....! With this in mind it made working in a
relaxed atmosphere even harder. But we could not be stopped and fought our
way through and....presto... WE MADE IT!!!

We are sure that the long wait has not been in vain and everyone's gonna be
rewarded with an album that goes beyond the expected (as always this is just
our humble opinion and the rest is up to the listener).

Now we're working out the big promo and touring game plan with Sanctuary and
All Access and of course getting everything ready to move to the new studio
location which we found a few weeks ago.
It is near the old place and actually much bigger and nicer than the old
one, with a waterfront view of the river Bille, a tributary of the Elbe. When
everything is ready there's gonna be a massive party for selected friends,
fans, journalists, musicians and so on
We hope that you will be patient for just a little while longer until the
album is finally released and not kick our butts for keeping you on hold for so
long. We're more alive than ever and we're damn hungry to go out on tour and
get this album on to a stage
Big Cheerzzz to you all from the Rays!!!

Stay tuned for more information soon ...

AFTER ALL news Feb 2005
Posted by: warlordtony on Sunday, February 06, 2005 - 10:44 PM
Bands' News AFTER ALL SIGN RECORD DEAL WITH DOCKYARD 1
OK, here's the big news... After All signed a multi-album deal with German
label Dockyard 1, the new company of Dirk Putzke, Christine Stephan (both
ex-Sanctuary/Noise Records) and Piet Sielck (Iron Savior). The CD-version of
the new After All album "The Vermin Breed" will be out on March 21st.

As reported earlier, "The Vermin Breed" was recorded and mixed by veteran
producer Harris Johns (Voivod, Helloween, Kreator), at the Spiderhouse
Studio in Berlin, Germany. "The Vermin Breed" CD contains 9 new tracks and
some bonus material. Several songs were already presented live during After
All's European campaigns with Anthrax and Overkill.

The new record clearly displays the growth of the band, both live and in the
studio. The musical direction After All introduced on "Mercury Rising" has
now been finetuned. That makes "The Vermin Breed" one sheer thrash attack.
Be prepared...


"THE VERMIN BREED" TO BE RELEASED ON LIMITED VINYL
And another record deal... German label Killer Metal Records will release
"The Vermin Breed" as a limited edition of 500 LPs on blue vinyl. The vinyl
release will have exclusive artwork. Street date is March 21st as well.


AFTER ALL ON TOUR WITH AGENT STEEL
Following the release of "The Vermin Breed" on March 21st, After All will
embark on a European tour as special guests of US masters of metal Agent
Steel. The tour takes the bands to Holland, Belgium, Germany, Sweden,
Switzerland, Italy and Austria, with stops on the Raise Your Fist and Keep
It True festivals. Special thanks to Agent Juan and Dragon Productions for
making this tour happen. Details about venues and dates: www.afterall.be
