HAMMER KING on Cruz Del Sur Music

HAMMERKING news promo72dpi 500x333 HAMMER KING on Cruz Del Sur Music

Even though “Kingdom of the Hammer King” is their debut album, HAMMER KING’s members are no novices.  Singer Titan Fox  is known for being the lead vocalist of ROSS THE BOSS’ solo project (and also IVORY NIGHTS), and drummer Herr Schmitt  is the former drummer of Germany’s Top-Ten Rockoutfit SALTATIO MORTIS. What emerges from the gathering of these stalwart metal musicians is a slab of traditional, epic power-metal in the best Teutonic tradition!

Expect an album with plenty of melodies, epic choruses and galloping guitars produced with a clean, brilliant sound  by the excellent Charles Greywolf (of POWERWOLF fame) in his own studio.

Kingdom of the Hammer King” will see the light in the first half of 2015 in compact disc, vinyl (with one bonus track) and digital editions.  You can already have a taste of HAMMER KING by listening to the album’s title track here:

Andy Powell (Wishbone Ash):I like to think there is a little bit of Metal in everything Wishbone Ash does. If I were to recommend one Heavy Metal band to listen to, it would be HAMMER KING

Ross The Boss:”Hammer King is the real deal. Power Metal at its best!

GATES OF HELL RECORDS

We’re proud to announce that in 2015 CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will give birth to a little, lovely sister:

GATES OF HELL RECORDS!

 GATES OF HELL RECORDS

GATES OF HELL RECORDS is a sub-label of Cruz Del Sur that will focus on old school metal bands of all styles. We mean classic heavy metal, but also black, death and thrash.

Many times we have been approached by valid bands we liked, but unfortunately did not feel as a good fit for Cruz Del Sur Music’s roster. But now, as we are constantly searching for high-quality bands, we want to fill the gap with GATES OF HELL RECORDS, whose distribution & promotional tools will be the same as Cruz Del Sur Music’s.

However, GATES OF HELL  RECORDS has its own A&R staff, so all inquiries regarding the label’s news, releases, merchandise etc., you should refer to www.gatesofhellrecords.com.

The first release will be the new ANAL VOMIT’s album “Peste Negra, Muerte Negra” to be released in early 2015 under license of Icarus Music. The cult Peruvian-combo returns to spread terror with an overdose of blackened death-thrash in the best tradition of the old South American masters.

“Peste Negra, Muerte Negra, ” is a massive and crushing opus, guaranteed to summon the dead from their graves and unleash Hell on Earth.

The album will feature an outrageous artwork by Mottla Art and will be available in compact disc and vinyl formats, both limited.
