KINGS WILL FALL - Thrash Force.One (2017)

Kings will fall. Under this generalizing motto, one of the most playful, lively and explosive new THRASH METAL commands joins the scene of the genre: KINGS WILL FALL.
When drummer Lukas Gross and bassist Daniel Vanzo came together in 2013 to form a band, guitarist René Thaler joined them as well. Finally, the hungry pack was completed by shouter Fabian Jung. And this optimally functioning line-up is still valid today.
Musically, the four South Tyrolean bullies set on a raging-brutal, staccato-like brand until today. Brutal influences of death-lead get nailed in with punky-snotty wise.
As a result of fierce rehearsal thunderstorms, the boys released their first self-recorded and self-produced demo EP in 2015 with the prophetic title „Death Comes Early“.
In addition, KINGS WILL FALL attacked not only various stages in their environment. But the raging mob let it crash officially beyond the country's borders. Reward for all sweaty efforts was the loud entry into the semifinals of the Austrian band competition ‚Metalchamp‘.
The summer of 2016 saw not only a few new gigs but also the songwriting process for the debut album "Thrash Force.One", which was recorded at Sarntaler Bucket Hill Studio at the end of the year. 

The domestic release show in February 2017 turned into a real Thrash festival, as well as triumphantly followed by the appearance at the most popular South Tyrolean hard music event, the Rock im Ring Festival.
The official release date for "Thrash Force.One" was February 11th, 2017. KINGS WILL FALL want to stay on the ball live in the future as well.
On August 24, the band released their very first official music video for the song ‚Toxic War‘, which is also featured on the current longplayer.
The whole thing was filmed and edited by Daniel Socin from Foto Video Socin. The whole group is totally behind song and video, whose performance passages were recorded in a sooty smithy.

With all the introduced, historical WW2 film-fragments, the band would like to aptly clarify the thematic significance of the lyrical overall concept of KINGS WILL FALL.
After all, since devastating and terrible wars are constantly being waged in this world despite better knowledge, this human-made evil must finally be named. May all the tyrants finally fall, may all the wars finally end! (Markus Eck)

Mile - The World In Focus (2018)

Mile: Working to keep the Swedish tradition in metal. The Swedish band Mile appeared on the scene recent with a modern sound mixing heavy metal and hard rock., combining heavy riffs and melodies. Created 2012 by former members of Cabinett - Marcus ”Masken” Karlsson (Vocals), Fredrik Palm (Guitar) and Marcus ”Folke” Bass - The line-up was completed by drummer Dennis Kjellgren and guitarist David ”Dave” Wallberg. The New Project was named Mile.

”I´ve been asked if the name had to do with the leader of Kreator but, although we like the sound of the German legend, it´s not about him. It´s an easy name to remember; we´re not added to a specific label of music and can represent the distance that music can take you, ”explains vocalist Masken. Before debuting on stage, the musicians remained rehearsing and composing their songs for a whole year. ”We were aware that with the immediacy of the times we live in and with the huge amount of metal bands that appear daily, the quality had to come first”.

The band has played festivals where giants like Twisted Sister and Europe have been present and also been support for Implode, Ammotrack and Mean Streak. In 2015, Niklas ”Nike” Tidaholm replaces one of the founders, bassist Marcus Folke. In the same year the debut album, ”Lost”, was released in December and heard have been streamed more than 1 million times. Helped by the music video for ”Dressed in Black”, the band has been able to keep its name current while preparing the second album.

After a show in late 2016, Mile met some new friends in Beardmen Management and already in early 2017 we signed a booking deal with their booking label. Together with Beardmen Agency Group we are now looking forward toward new heights.

Ignitor - Haunted by Rock & Roll (2017)

Haunted By Rock & Roll introduces heavy metal fans to arguably IGNITOR's strongest lineup to date and their definitive metallic statement. Featuring eight new original anthems of leather clad glory including "Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)" as featured on the official motion picture soundtrack for the 2017 "Victor Crowley" slasher film and a cover of "Hung, Drawn and Quartered" by NWOBHM legends (and EMP labelmates) RAVEN.
EMP label owner/founder Dave Ellefson (Megadeth) who serves as Executive Producer on Haunted By Rock & Roll has been instrumental in attaining a larger audience for IGNITOR and the sky is now the limit for the band that debuted with a record entitled "Take To The Sky". 
A total of four music videos have been filmed for Haunted By Rock & Roll. Visit YouTube to view the first two music videos "No Sanctuary" and "To Brave The War" and stay tuned for updates on when the next music video will be unleashed.

Formed in 2003 by founding Agony Column guitarist Stuart "Batlord" Laurence and drummer Pat Doyle formerly of punk legends The Offenders; IGNITOR set out to create the kind of true heavy metal their contemporaries in the Austin, Texas metal scene were lacking. Unabashedly loud and forceful yet retaining all of the sonic spirit and hallmarks of the golden years of heavy metal.

Enduring lineup changes along the way found IGNITOR replacing original vocalist Erica Swinnich with the iconic pipes of Jason McMaster (Watchtower, Dangerous Toys, Broken Teeth, Evil United) a much revered elder statesman in Texas metal circles, who was introduced on the "Spider Queen" album in 2007.
In early 2015 IGNITOR would recruit guitarist Robert Williams (Witches Mark) and bassist Billy Dansfiell (Agony Column) beginning a near three year campaign of introducing metal fans to the newly reinvigorated lineup with some scorching live performances in support of such metal titans as Grim Reaper, Helstar, Jag Panzer, Raven and Cage and familiarizing audiences with the songs that would ultimately become the Haunted By Rock & Roll album.

RAYNE - Complex By Design (2017)

The infectiously melodic Alt-Indie Rock outfit 'RAYNE' unveil news of the arrival of their long awaited 'Complex By Design' album.

Available for digital download from 1st Dec 2017, the band with a flair for sky-searing anthemic hook-lines showcase their evolution into darker and heavier synth driven territories with this 7 track offering. Co-produced by RAYNE and Kyle Martin, Complex By Design unabashedly resonates with sonically epic overtones and textures. Hard hitting and huge sounding songs that feature explosive chorus lines, multi layered guitar sounds, pop-leaning electronica and all encompassed within the Sunderland (UK) trio's ability to steer listeners on a magical journey through emotive song arrangements and intricate dynamics. Lengthy compositions with a huge depth of sound whilst avoiding any superfluous studio production techniques.

Vocalist & Bassist 'Ben Potts' delivers fervent performances with his distinct vocal tones - taking on a variety of lyrical subject matters. Despite tackling themes such as metal health, terminal illness, love, loss and even conspiracy theories; don't expect RAYNE to be wallowing with melancholic introspection as each song is emotively uplifting, promoting a sense of optimism to stand strong in the face of life's personal challenges.

Originally forming over 20 years ago during their school days, the years of close friendship, respect and creative synergy has held the group united together.  Staying true to their desire to deliver stadium sized songs akin to their comparators The Killers, Muse, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons and 30 Seconds To Mars, RAYNE have stood firm with their epic-rock creations and remain unfazed by past and present trends in music industry fashions. Ben Potts along with fellow comrades Adam Dagg (Guitar/Keys) and Steven Naisbet (Drums/Samples) possess a musical formula that has helped build a loyal army of fans and followers through years of gigging, festival appearances and growing support from media around the world.

With their debut album for UK indie label Ambicon Records 'The New Enlightenment' (2013) proving the band's evident potential; 'Complex By Design' may well be the catalyst to propel their music to a much wider global audience.

ARMORTURA - Armortura (2018)

RELEASE 26 January 2018

Armortura are a melodic thrash metal band based in North East England and although the music is loosely based on old school thrash, there are lots of modern and melodic influences that can be heard from the tight, harmonised guitars coupled with pounding bass lines and powerful vocals.

Armortura was formed in April 2016 by ex-HOLOSADE members Phil De Sade (vocals) and Paul Trotter (guitarist), who, after a chance meeting at a Rock Night back in March 2016, decided to catapult their creative musical ideas and shared passion for hard hitting metal music into a new venture, following their dreams of spreading this unique blend of metal music as far and wide as possible.

Early 2017 saw the full band formulation of Adam Ironside on guitar Neil Vickers on drums (also ex-HOLOSADE) and Steve Smart on bass to make the talented five-piece metal machine you see today!

The writing of the ten track album came into full flow throughout 2016 and early 2017, when many an hour was spent in Paul’s home studio recording demo tracks that would be built upon before launching into the professional studio. Final recording, mixing and mastering of the self-financed album began in July 2016 with Producer James Stephenson at Stymphalian Productions in York, UK. The album took one year to complete from start to final mix.

In April 2017, Armortura submitted a four track demo to Mighty Music which was well received and Mighty Music requested to hear the full album. The label were delighted with the full album and in July 2017, Armortura signed to Denmark’s biggest metal label, Mighty Music, who will be releasing the killer self-entitled debut album worldwide in January 2017.

JUSTIFY REBELLION - Unleashing The Beast (2018)

RELEASE 19 January 2018

This January 2018, the debut album of Justify Rebellion ‘Unleashing The Beast’ is being released, it is an album which takes point of departure in the animalistic instincts in us as humans and the dark thoughts which surrounds us in our daily routines, gloomy myths and tales from old times. The song ‘Beast’ was released as a precursor to the album which had its music video premier on the swedish ‘Sweden Rock Magazine’, the german ‘Legacy - The Void from the Darkside’ and the danish ‘Metalized’ and meanwhile securing playtime on the danish rock radio: ‘myROCK’.

The album represents the surrounding problems and the critical factors which are to be found in the postmodern society which we are a part of.

The band has managed to write an album full of material from those inspirations sources and the album is with subjects as evilness, power struggle and superstition.

The album is recorded in CB Studios in cooperation with the danish producer Christian Bonde Sørensen also known as the lead singer in the band ‘Whores and Thieves’. The first tracks were recorded in the middle of 2015 where the band spend a lot of time polishing, exploring the songs and challenging the borders of how music can be interpreted. By doing that, the band found their exact sound and expression which together made the band’s hard expression of the human being in it’s most “evil form”.

The sound of the album is inspired by the hard edge of the 80’s and the songs do have a tiny touch and sometimes a strong mixture of heavy metal and thrash metal where the guitar sound is in focus with a powerful and hard vocal resounding to the thundering drums and bass to keep everything in order.
