Finnish MAUSOLEUM GATE releases today the first track off their forthcoming, self-titled debut album to be released by Cruz Del Sur Music on October 10th in Europe and October t7th in USA.
“Magic of the Gypsy Queen” can be streamed here. It is total 80s metal worship, with hypnotic riffs and dramatic, theatrical vocals. MAUSOLEUM GATE’s influences emerge quite clearly from this song. Its debut album will be particularly appreciated by any lover of late 1970s hard rock (such as early Scorpions and Uriah Heep), and also early 80s metal (principally Saxon and the weird twists of Cirith Ungol). The presence of unusual keys (Mellotron and Organ mainly) gives this album a spooky and somewhat tragic atmosphere, with long musical suites such as “Lost Beyond the Sun” and “Mausoleum Gate” that reach the highest peaks of an opera prima that will hardly pass unobserved.
MAUSOLEUM GATE’s out-of-nowhere appearance on the scene came very unexpectedly and immediately turned some heads – the band has already been invited to play at the next edition of famous German “Keep It True Festival” in April 2015 -. We are sure that their debut album will not just turn, but also behead quite a lot of others. Read more “MAUSOLEUM GATE announces artwork, tracklist and song streaming”
STEEL PROPHET has released today a 10-min video/audio teaser for its upcoming album “Omniscient” which will hit the streets on July 8th in the U.S. and on July 11th in Europe.
“Omniscient” marks the return of the originators of the ‘Progressive Power Metal’ movement 10 years after their last full length studio recording. It features the powerful metal melodies of founding members Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor and Rick Mythiasin.
This teaser follows the release of two video clips on YouTube – “666 Is Everywhere (the Heavy Metal Blues)” and “Tree of Knowledge” , both filmed by Agent Steel’s guitarist Bernie Versailles -, and features original artworks by acclaimed German artist Timo Würz. Besides working on “Omniscient” cover artwork, Würz has also painted 12 originals panels to illustrate the story narrated in “Omniscient”.
“Omniscient” concept is actually based on an original story written by STEEL PROPHET’s guitarist Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor. The limited edition 36-page digibook features the entire story, while the regular edition compact disc only has its introduction. But do not worry, as there will be a special link where fans will be able to download the story. “Omniscient” will also be released on digital and Gatefold double LP edition (available after summer).
“Omniscient” also contains the cover of QUEEN’s classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” which the band successfully presented on the Keep It True Festival’s stage last year.
Cruz Del Sur Music has opened today the pre-orders for the album through our online store:
