B-O-fb anuncio
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is pleased and proud to present its upcoming April release, a split 7’’ featuring two legends in EPIC METAL, OMEN and BATTLEROAR!
The 7” will feature two unreleased tracks, OMEN “Up From The Deep” and BATTLEROAR “Stronghold”.
It will be released in a deluxe edition on the occasion of OMEN’s European tour in April/May 2017.

BATTLEROAR’s “Stronghold” is in the same style as the fastest and heaviest songs on their last album “Blood Of Legends” (Cruz Del Sur, 2014). It shows a massive rhythmic session, great leads and Gerrit’s classic, epic and melodic vocals.

OMEN’s “Up From The Deep” sounds as if it was taken directly from “Battle Cry”… War cries introduce the legendary OMEN sound, with Kenny Powell painting a majestic tapestry of guitar notes above which Kevin Goocher delivers a brazen complimentary vocal performance.

Besides, both bands have faced line-up additions in these latest months and the 7’’ is the occasion to test how the new line ups work.

BATTLEROAR just announced the addition of Greg Vlachos (ex-Marauder) on  drums, and  Michael Kontogiorgis (ex-Spitfire, Exoristoi and more) on guitars as permanent members.

While OMEN just announced on their facebook page the addition of two new members to the line-up. Both of them are Kenny Powell and Kevin Goocher’s long-time partners in crime: Roger Sisson wrote many of the “Battle Cry”’s  riffs but was never part of the Omen line-up.. Now after 30 years he’s the official new bass-player! And the new drummer, Reece Stanley, was in the Phantom X line-up together with Kevin…

The 7’’ will be officially presented at Keep It True 2017, where OMEN will play alongside with Cirith Ungol, Manilla Road, Atlantean Kodex among others.
