“We are eternally grateful to Anderson Tiago from [YouTube channel] NWOTHM Full Albums,” says the band. “He helped us first with finding our audience, and then  later on by reaching out to Cruz Del Sur on our behalf. Anderson is a fantastic person to work with and one is very respected in the scene. We can’t be happier about our continued collaboration with him.”

ADAMANTIS formed in 2016 when drummer Evgeny Gromovoy and guitarist Javier Estrada moved to Boston for work where they met guitarist Jeff Taft and former singer Ashley Caval via an internet post calling for musicians sharing similar influences to start a band. The band played across New England and culminated their run with the release of “Thundermark” EP. Soon after the release, Ashley and original bassist Liz Cleary left and the trio continued working on new material, eventually adding bassist Cody Pelchat and vocalist Jeff Stark to complete the lineup.

The resultant “Far Flung Realm” full-length immediately earned high marks for its take on 1990s era European power metal. The members of ADAMANTIS cite the likes of GAMMA RAY, RUNNING WILD, BLIND GUARDIAN and early NOCTURNAL RITES as key influences as well as early MANOWAR and Viking-era BATHORY. The key, however, to the band’s sound is their democratic writing process — all members of ADAMANTIS contributed across the 10 songs that would comprise the finished product.

“Though the songs are conceived initially by a single member, every member has contributed in some way to every song,” comments the band. “After Ashley and Liz left, we kept writing songs but stopped playing shows, which allowed us to work more on our initial ideas and give them time to evolve, whereas the previous EP was primarily a way to release in a physical medium the songs we had been playing live for over a year. With ‘Far Flung Realm’ we also were fortunate to work with experienced producer Christian ‘Moschus’ Moos, who also helped shape our sound and added some light string and flute arrangements.”

“Far Flung Realm” track listing:

  1. Into the Realm
  2. Unbound Souls
  3. Misbegotten Dream
  4. Puppeteer’s Bane
  5. Fire and Brimstone
  6. Imagination
  7. Journey’s End
  8. The Oracle’s Philosophy
  9. Second Sight
  10. The Siege of Arkona
  11. Voron (The Ravensong)

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.
