CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC announces to have inked a recording deal with Indianapolis’ SACRED LEATHER for the release of their debut album “Ultimate Force”!
With influences being self-evident to any heavy metal purist, SACRED LEATHER’s music seems to emerge directly from the early 80s, mixing late elegant and nostalgic hard rock/ proto metal, with the most belligerent side of the traditional NWOBHM’s sound.
The recording of “Ultimate Force” will start in early September for an expected February 2018 release.
SACRED LEATHER was created out of necessity, to summon the spirit of the HEAVY METAL forefathers – into an age mired in apostasies. Make sure to keep an eye out for the legion of leather as they are slated to deliver their sonic and visual assault unto you in the coming months.
SACRED LEATHER IS:
The Devil’s Hellion: guitar
The Highway: guitar
Magnus Legrand: bass
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…
“The King Is Rising” includes 12 tracks (+ 1 bonus song on the compact disc edition) and promises to be a must for all fans of power metal.
