KING HEAVY to release self-titled debut album in September 2015

Chilean / Belgian band KING HEAVY is set to release its debut full length on Cruz Del Sur Music on September 4 in Europe and September 19 in USA.

KING HEAVY was formed in 2009 by ex-Procession founder Daniel Perez Saa and Luce Vee known for being the vocalist of Dutch Doom Metal act Hooded Priest. Shortly guitarist Matias Aguirre and drummer Miguel Canessa were added to the line up and in 2014 the band self-released an EP entitled “Horror Absoluto” which was later repressed on split-vinyl by French label Emanes Records.

KING HEAVY is so much more than nowadays mono-dimensional, superficial doom metal.  King Heavy rocks!

Aside from strong elements of Candlemass and of the more traditional doom metal sound, KING HEAVY offers tons of EPIC arrangements and a twisted touch that definitely reminds of Black Sabbath’s “Born Again”, Celtic Frost “Into the Pandemonium” and the early, darkest side of Danzig.

The album contains 7 songs for a total running time of over 47 minutes and has been recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 Studio, Chile;  vocals which were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory, Belgium.

Shortly after the release of the album, the band will engage a Chilean and  European tour which will bring them to Malta’s Doom Fest, Dutch Doom Days, Biebob (the notorious Belgian metal club)…  Other tour dates will be published and confirmed very soon!

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC to release DARK QUARTERER’s “Ithaca” on vinyl

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is proud to announce the release of DARK QUARTERER’s new album “Ithaca” on vinyl!

CRUZ528 cover600

“Ithaca” has been originally released April 25 on compact discs by Metal on Metal Records, receiving a warm feedback from the fans.

“Ithaca” is a concept album inspired by the 1911’s poem of the same title by a Greek poet, Konstantinos P. Kavafis (Constantine P. Cavafy), who used  Odysseus’s travel from the Trojan Wars back to his home-island as a metaphor for the journey of life; the goal is not important, but the journey itself. Stylistically, it’s a mix of ’80s epic heavy metal with ’70s progressive rock, and some elements of doom.

With a specific, suitable mastering for vinyl, the release includes two exclusive 2010-live bonus tracks which have been explicitly chosen by the band for its quality and uniqueness. The first is a version of band’s own classic “War Tears”;  the peculiarity of this version  is that is sung in Italian, making the interpretation of singer Gianni Nepi  particularly passionate.
The second bonus  is the long, touching piece “Deep Wake” another song that shows Dark Quarterer’s incredible skills.
Besides over 70 minutes of stellar, progressive metal music, this deluxe DOUBLE LP GATEFOLD EDITION will also include a 4-page booklet  with lyrics and a download-card.

Estimated release-date is September 19.

Tracklist:
1. The Path of Life
2. Night Song
3. Mind Torture
4. Escape
5. Nostalgia
6. Rage of Gods
7. Last Fight
8. Peace
9. War Tears (live) – BONUS TRACK
10. Deep Wake (live) – BONUS TRACK

HAMMER KING’s “Kingdom of The Hammer King” full-album stream available.

“Kingdom of the Hammer King”, the debut album of German power metal HAMMER KING is now available in streaming on Cruz Del Sur Music’s bandcamp!

At this same location the album can be bought in digital format with a 16-page booklet (that comes with the physical edition) as bonus.

HAMMER KING’s album is quite different from what you usually get from Cruz Del Sur.
It has been described as “cheesy” power metal, but we would rather say that this album is ridiculously brilliant, with an amount of melodies, galloping riffs and solos that are the basics of power metal!
Fans of Hammerfall, early Blind Guardian and of the German power metal tradition will definitely fall in love with it.
Professionally recorded by Powerwolf’s Charles Greywolf, HAMMER KING features the vocals skills of Ross the Boss/ Ivory Night singer , and a line-up full of skilled musicians. The artwork has been created specifically by Timo Würz.

The album is now officially out on compact disc and digital while the vinyl edition (Gatefold LP with bonus track) will be available by mid June. “Kingdom of the Hammer King” can also be purchased directly from the label e-store which also offers exclusive, money-saver deals on combined compact disc / tshirt orders.

Hammer King “Aderlass; Blood Of Sacrifice” Streaming Online Today

HAMMERKING_news promo72dpi

We’re pleased to bring you the exclusive stream of Hammer King‘s new track “Aderlass; Blood Of Sacrifice.” The song is taken from the band’s new album on Cruz Del Sur Music, Kingdom Of The Hammer King, out now in Europe, and May 5th in the US. It is published today through New Noise Magazine at this link.

Vocalist/Guitarist Titan comments:

“Aderlass; The Blood Of Sacrifice” – how old-school can a riff be? When we first played the riff that the King gave us at Castle Rockfort we knew that this was a battle song. When you hear the huge chorus you stand on a battlefield.

We love the idea of calling a battle “blood letting”, but the German word “Aderlass” is so much more radical, like the Germans! This song was great before we went into the studio – and it got amazing when we recorded it. [Read the rest of this entry...]
