Our two much anticipated May releases, VESTAL CLARET “The Cult of Vestal Claret” and BATTLEROAR “Blood of Legends”, are finally available for pre-order.
Please note that we are now using the excellent DHL Express service: your vinyl orders will be delivered in 24-36 hours throughout Europe.
Battleroar “Blood of Legends” is certainly one of the strongest Epic Metal releases of the last few years. New singer Gerrit Mutz (of Sacred Steel fame) pleases his fans and surprise the skeptics once again delivering the goods with a very convincing and inspired performance. This excellent recording, enriched by delicate violin melodies and the thunderous performance of an entire set of classical players, will leave you breathless.
The German press is already favourably impressed:
“Zusammen mit der neuen Cobra-Scheibe für mich in diesem Monat die Pflichtkauf-Kandidaten im klassischen Sektor.” (Mega-Metal)
“Gänsehautmomente garantiert!” (Rock Hard, D)
“Erst ein wunderschönes folkiges langes Instrumental, bevor die True-Metal-Battle beginnt!” (Bleeding4Metal.de, D)
It includes over 60 minutes of music and will be also officially released on May 2nd. Pre-orders are available at our webstore now. Besides the digital, the CD comes in digipack compact disc with 16-page booklet and double gatefold vinyl editions.

Up next is Vestal Claret “The Cult of The Vestal Claret”, a monumental piece of darkened doom metal introduced by the haunting art of Juha Vuorma. It features re-recorded versions of their tracks from their split with Ungod and the long, creepy suite “Black Priest” (from their split with Albatross). It also put some new occult metal classics on the Vestal Claret’s altar: “The Stranger” and “Great Goat God”, plus a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Who Are You”.
We are not the only ones to be excited about the cult:
“The jangling melancholy of Trouble, the epic stomp of Candlemass, the creative freedom of Sabbath, add a big handful of classic 1980′s metal and off they go, exploring places where no light shines.” (Doom Metal Heaven, UK)
“Eine vielschichtige, atmosphärische Scheibe, die das derzeit boomende Genre bereichert.” (Rock Hard, D)
“Die Okkult-Metaller liefern einen 70er Sound, der aber eine moderne Schlagseite hat und sich damit von den üblichen Retrobands abhebt.” (Bleeding4Metal, D)
“Truly this is a wonderful album, start to finish! For me its going to be one of the top ten albums for the year!” (Destructive Music, UK)
