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)

SLOUGH FEG “The Animal Spirits” released in Late October

SLOUGH FEG newest album will be released by Cruz del Sur Music on October 22nd 2010. Any fan of “true metal” should be aware of this San Francisco band which has delivered some of the most eclectic, powerful and truthful heavy metal for the past 20 years.

Although Mike Scalzi and his band mates have often broke the boundaries between the rock/metal and hard rock fields, the story of SLOUGH FEG has always been that of a band moving on the borders of notoriety and unawareness. Read more “SLOUGH FEG “The Animal Spirits” released in Late October”

ATLANTEAN KODEX “The Golden Bough”: best Epic Metal album of the year?

This is the questions that many of you, and even us at Cruz del Sur Music, are keeping on asking. From the land of Bavaria, best known to the world for its tasty beers and commercial Oktoberfests, ATLANTEAN KODEX hails and kill, keeping it in an epic, Manowar-esque fashion.

Some of the early press responses have been just overwhelming :

“There is no metal truer than this. The Golden Bough thunders and shimmers like a storm of everything True Metal is supposed to be. The riffs are worthy of Quorthon at his best, the melodies are beyond haunting, and the production is heavy as a fucking iron warhammer.(…) Not only the best metal music of the year, but one of the most significant and deep albums ever made”

“Get ready for one of the most chilling, hair raising and just plain brilliant metal releases of the year!!!! I’m honestly not over exaggerating either, if you have not gotten your full dose of melodic, epic, and ultimately heavy quite yet then prepare to be flattened to being almost transparent by the Atlantean Kodex!!!!(…) This thing actually gives me goosebumps, I mean honest tingling and a “deer in the headlights” expression on my face as my epidermis puckers in places. The whole album is so astounding and completely intense, this will humble many for sure.”

We decided to ask a few questions to guitarist Manuel Trummer, trying to understand which is the secret behind the bands’ formula of success: Read more “ATLANTEAN KODEX “The Golden Bough”: best Epic Metal album of the year?”
