ARTISTS / SONGS IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE
1. MORTALICUM – My Dying Soul
MORTALICUM: Two years after the debut album, MORTALICUM follow up with a new vintage heavy doom-rocking release. These Swedes play genuine, earthy doom metal combined with a healthy dose of early ’80s heavy metal and ’70s hard rock, with a really warm vibe. Imagine a blend of BLACK SABBATH, GRAND MAGUS, DIO, RAINBOW, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, DEEP PURPLE, THIN LIZZY, TROUBLE and SAMSON… MORTALICUM take it from there and add their own personal touch. *Purchase the Metal
2. SKELATOR – Gates of Thorbadin
SKELATOR: The US epic heavy/speed metal merchants SKELATOR are back with their 2nd official studio album! The first 4 songs are catchy bad-ass metal anthems that will have you singing along and pounding your fist in the air instantly. And then there’s something very special for all Michael Moorcock fans: “Elric: The Dragon Prince”, a 40 minutes epic in 12 parts, displaying the true versatility of the band’s music and sheer talent of the singer, Jason, who shows the different facets of his voice, including his trademark high pitched soaring screams. Fans of SACRED STEEL, DOMINE, HELSTAR, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, AGENT STEEL and DIO, take heed! These guys have been waving the flag of True Metal high already for 14 years, but they are still wild like kids hungry for Metal! *Purchase the Steel
3. HERETIC – Child of War
HERETIC: A TIME OF CRISIS, the come-back album of the US power/thrash metal legends HERETIC, will be released on July 26th at the Headbangers Open Air festival. They have stayed true to their roots and created a really solid album in the best US metal tradition: heavy, melodic and aggressive. *Purchase the Heresy
4. ARKHAM WITCH – Burn the Witch
ARKHAM WITCH: On the 16th of April 2012 ARKHAM WITCH hit the studio to record their second album, “Legions Of The Deep”. 8 days, 312 lagers, 82 whiskeys, 22 cigars, 4 babychams, 2 nervous breakdowns and a packet of Haribos later, and the band clambered from out that musical tomb with the bare bones of a new opus. The group crossed the border into shadowy Lancashire and returned to Full Stack Studios on Queens Jubilee (4th-5th of June) to put the finishing touches – solos backing vocals – to the album that is scheduled for early October release.
5. SACRED GATE – Freedom or Death
SACRED GATE: From the Metal capital of the world, Germany, comes a new traditional heavy metal band, SACRED GATE. The founding members, vocalist and guitarist of the band, started mastering their craft in MADE OF IRON, which started out as an IRON MAIDEN tribute band – and the British legends still have the biggest influence on their music. Years later they serve a perfect, timeless classic metal album, rooted in the NWOBHM tradition and flavoured with ’80s US power metal. Impressive song structures, mighty riffs, galloping guitar harmonies and solos, remarkable bass lines, solid power drumming, anthemic choruses, charismatic, slightly rough but clean vocals and a great feel for melody. *Purchase the Heaviness
6. AFTER OBLIVION – Deliverance
AFTER OBLIVION: Bosnia and Herzegovina,The debut full-length album “Stamina” is planned for October 2012 with a tour to follow – currently the band is putting finishing touches on the songs. Expect a real old school technical death/thrash feast that is not only a homage to the ’90s period of DEATH, but bears also personal stamp.
