Mad Hatter’s Den - Excelsior (2016)


Mad Hatter’s Den, a melodic heavy metal band from Finland, are proud to announce the release of their second album: Excelsior. The album is released April 8th 2016 worldwide by the Finnish record label Inverse Records.

Mad Hatter’s Den main musical influences draw from classic heavy metal, but on the band’s second album, listeners can look forward to finding many more: symphonic influences, power metal input, and even some progressive flavours! The style and sound of Mad Hatter’s Den owe to some extend also to the heavier bands of the 1980’s, but with Mad Hatter’s Den, the focus always lies on the melodies.

The new album ‘Excelsior’ presents the combination that creates the special sound and style of Mad Hatter’s Den: Some songs are more guitar oriented, while in other songs the keyboards are the main instrument. Listeners can expect no-nonsense heavy metal tunes, great riffs and catchy melodies, but enough technical virtuosity to satisfy the more demanding listeners as well. The depth of Mad Hatter’s Den’s music, with an abundance of different elements inside their songs, is a surprise for most, and even a challenge for some!

Mad Hatter’s Den started playing in 2010. The band released their first EP, ‘Dark Wheel’, in 2012, and the follow-up single ‘Stone Cold Flame’ was released in early 2013. The EP was very well received both live and in reviews. Mad Hatter’s Den’s debut album ‘Welcome to the Den’ was released in October 2013, and revealed the wide scale of styles that has since then become a hallmark of the band. With ‘Excelsior’, the band takes their music to a new level: the song writing material is stronger, and the album has a more distinctive style.


The new album ‘Excelsior’ also introduces changes to Mad Hatter’s Den’s line-up. Arto Pitkänen, who joined the band during the ‘Welcome to the Den’ tour 2013, can now be heard working his drums on album. Jarno Vitri, who joined Mad Hatter’s Den first to play bass, has now also the job of lead vocalist! The bands founding members, Jaakko Hänninen and Kari Korhonen, continue on the guitar, and Petja Puumalainen’s skills on the keyboards complete the package.

"We've had a great time preparing the album, and are really looking forward to the upcoming gigs", says Jaakko. ”I think that 'Welcome to the Den' was quite good album, but in all honesty, I think that 'Excelsior' will surpass our previous album in every aspect", he adds.

The new album’s name, Excelsior, implies reaching new heights.
Are you ready to leave the Earth behind and join Mad Hatter’s Den on a musical trip to new dimensions?

Excelsior is released 8 April worldwide by the Finnish record label Inverse Records.

A couple of more scattered recordings on compilation albums would follow before Takashi would disappear like a spirit wind. Now after 33 years the sun will rise again and shed light on a cult classic with this upcoming re-issue of ‘Kamikaze Killers’. The release will include; the original EP tracks ‘Strangler’, ‘Kamikaze’, ‘Mad Max’, ‘Playboy Girls’. Additional tracks include: ‘Kill or Be Killed’ and ‘Live to Rock’, among others. All songs re-mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios.
