Battleroar

Battleroar “Blood of Legends” is certainly one of the strongest Epic Metal releases of the last few years. New singer Gerrit Mutz (of Sacred Steel fame) pleases his fans and surprise the skeptics once again delivering the goods with a very convincing and inspired performance. This excellent recording, enriched by delicate violin melodies and the thunderous performance of an entire set of classical players, will leave you breathless.

The German press is already favourably impressed:

“Zusammen mit der neuen Cobra-Scheibe für mich in diesem Monat die Pflichtkauf-Kandidaten im klassischen Sektor.” (Mega-Metal)

“Gänsehautmomente garantiert!” (Rock Hard, D)

Erst ein wunderschönes folkiges langes Instrumental, bevor die True-Metal-Battle beginnt!” (Bleeding4Metal.de, D)

It includes over 60 minutes of music and will be also officially released on May 2nd. Pre-orders are available at our webstore now. Besides the digital, the CD comes in digipack compact disc with 16-page booklet and double gatefold vinyl editions. Read more “VESTAL CLARET and BATTLEROAR open PRE ORDERS”

DARK FOREST “The Awakening” PRE-ORDERS and VIDEO Song Preview

DARK FOREST‘s third album “The Awakening” will be released on February 28th in Europe and March 6th in the USA, and so far it has been very well-welcomed by the Metal press.

To convince you that this album is rightly been regarded as “one of the best heavy metal releases of early 2014”,  the band has released a videoclip of their new anthem “Sons of England” (without doubt, one of the most memorable songs amongst “The Awakening”‘s setlist). Watch the video here:


 

These are some of the European press’ comments:

“Ein stimmiges Album.” (Time for Metal, D)

“Dark Forest levert met ‘The Awakening’ een cd af met 9 sterke heavymetalnummers en een die makkelijk mee kan met de top van de heavy metal. Goede plaat!” (White Room Reviews, NL)

“The Awakening” is one of the first real heavy metal highlights of 2014. Please let there be many more!” (Metal Squadron, N)

“Das dritte Album der von Hingabe beseelten Briten, die ihre Band 2002 gründeten. Epischer und melodischer Heavy Metal, zuweilen nahe dran am Power Metal. Mit visionär-verträumter Aura!” (EMP, D)

“Ein wahres Jahreshighlight, das von Mal zu Mal stärker in den Ohren knallt und jeden Liebhaber epischen True Metals zum Jauchzen bringen wird.” (Stormbringer.at, AT)

“Ein klassisches Metal-Album mit leicht epischem Charakter.” (Legacy, D)

“Traditioneller Heavy Metal mit viel Melodie und einigen frühen Speed-Elementen.” (Bleeding4Metal)
