ROSAE CRUCIS SIGN WITH CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC!


(A seguire testo in Italiano)

ROSAE CRUCIS started working on the new songs for their next album that will be out on Cruz Del Sur Music.
Named after an ancient, esoteric order, this band from Rome is well known to Italian metalheads.
ROSAE CRUCIS  in fact have been active since 1989 and always followed their own artistic path, playing epic heavy metal during the 90s, a decade plagued by fashions, composing a very personal style of music and, last but not least, singing in Italian language.

Courage and coherence usually pay off: throughout the years ROSAE CRUCIS have been constantly improving their song writing. They gained a wide fan base, also thanks to their outstanding live performances. And kept the flame of Heavy Metal burning in Italy, a country usually pretty cold towards this style of music.

 


ROSAE CRUCIS FIRMANO PER CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC

I ROSAE CRUCIS hanno cominciato a lavorare ai brani del loro prossimo album che uscirà per Cruz del Sur Music.

Questo gruppo romano che porta il nome di un antico ordine esoterico è ben noto ai metallari italiani.

I ROSAE CRUCIS infatti sono attivi dal 1989 e hanno sempre seguito il loro percorso artistico, attraverso scelte anche difficili quali suonare heavy metal epico durante gli anni 90, un decennio piagato da mode mediocri e passeggere, comporre brani estremamente personali e fuori dai cliché  e, non ultimo, cantare in lingua italiana.

ll coraggio e la coerenza in genere pagano: durante gli anni i ROSAE CRUCIS hanno costantemente migliorato le loro composizioni. Hanno guadagnato un’ampia base di fan fedeli, anche grazie a tantissimi concerti di ottimo livello. E hanno mantenuto accesa la fiamma dell’Heavy Metal in Italia, un paese generalmente freddo verso questo genere di musica.

Siamo felici ed emozionati di poter contribuire a dare ai ROSAE CRUCIS la visibilità che meritano! A breve ulteriori dettagli…

WALPYRGUS stream “Somewhere Under Summerwind” from forthcoming album “Walpyrgus Nights”

We’ve all heard the stories of legendary antics and debauchery backstage at Metal concerts – and while that is exciting to read or gossip about, very often there’s another conversation that happens back there, on the tour bus, or at a local backyard BBQ party over some beers – while you’re hanging out with fellow musicians you respect, blasting a classic Maiden, Lizzy, or Priest album – it’s almost inevitable that someone says “we should jam together sometime” and while this may be well-intentioned or naively inspired, it seldom comes to fruition. WALPYRGUS is an exception.

When these veterans of Twisted Tower Dire, While Heaven Wept, Daylight Dies, and Viper (amongst a long list of many others) broached this subject, it actually came to fruition with a very real mutual ambition and respect for both each others’ talents and the musical influences that made them who they are.
When you hear those passages recalling the aforementioned Maiden, Lizzy, Priest, Fate, etc…it’s truly coming from the hearts of musicians who have been performing this kind of music their entire lives.
The eponymous demo-turned-EP confirmed that these guys were serious but was really only a litmus test merely hinting at what was to come; their debut album “Walpyrgus Nights” represents the full realization of the potential of this dangerous meeting of Metal minds. Hook after hook, cascading guitar harmonies, anthemic soaring vocals, epic unexpected twists and turns abound, this 8 song opus is truly a genuinely inspired, wild, and I daresay fun ride through the annals of classic Hard Rock and early Metal with a distinct personality.
This effort gradually matured over a span of no less than five years and recorded in a variety of locations over the course of two intense years under the guidance of Tom Phillips (While Heaven Wept mastermind) was mixed by longtime collaborator Kevin “131” Gutierrez (Raven, Deceased, Believer) and features the artwork of Gustavo Sazes (Morbid Angel, Arch Enemy, Firewind).

So when the when the stars are right and you’re alone, take a journey, lock the world tight and prepare yourself for the tales of demons, spectres, and witches rising on Walpyrgus Nights!

“Walpyrgus Nights” will be released on compact disc, vinyl (featuring a 56-page comic book with lyrics!) and digital on June 9, 2017.

ARDUINI / BALICH releases “The Wraith” lyric-video

One month after the release of their debut album “Dawn Of Ages”, ARDUINI/BALICH releases today a new lyric video, “The Wraith”.
The 13-min long composition is one of the strongest of the album and sums up quite well the atmosphere of “Dawn Of Ages”.
Precise drumming, heavy, doom-tinged and sometimes ethereal guitar work acting as a counterpart to the dramatic and passionate vocal interpretation – all elements that are a trademark of “Dawn OF Ages”.

“Dawn of Ages” has been released on February 24, 2017 in compact disc, double (splatter) vinyl and digital and has been receiving a very warm welcome by the media and simple fans of the heavy metal / hard rock community.
