FDA Rekotz presents: GOLEM - Eternity-The Weeping Horizons / The 2nd Moon (Re-Releases)
GOLEM. This legendary and absolutely underrated band started back in 1989. In the 1990s they have released two of the best Death Metal albums ever, which have never been released on vinyl. Until now!
FDA Rekotz is re-releasing both "Eternity - The Weeping Horizons" (1996) and "The 2nd Moon" (1998).
Both albums were remastered by Andreas Hilbert (head of the band) and to top it of Mark Cooper has created new killer artwork. GOLEM are influenced by bands like CARCASS, DEATH or MORBID ANGEL and are surely on the same musical level. They never got the luck to be pushed by one of the big record labels at the time (early/mid 90s). They are still more or less active and the time has come to rise above and beyond, to show their great compositions to a wider audience.
Now it's time to re-release both hard to find albums for the first time ever on vinyl (2LP), as well as Double CD and for Download!
The vinyl will be limited to 100 transparent green and 400 rotten black copies, printed lyrics, old pictures and more than 80 minutes pure fucking Death Metal at it's best.
Double-CD, Double-LP and Download will be unleashed from the grave on April 4th, 2014!

The pre-sale starts on February 5th at the FDA Rekotz online Deathstore: www.FDA-REKOTZ.com

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is proud to announce another prestigious addition to its roster: VESTAL CLARET
One of the most mysterious and intriguing bands to appear from the American underground in the last few years, VESTAL CLARET is the creature of Simon Tuozzoli and Phil Swanson (of SEAMOUNT / HOUR OF 13 fame), and play a killer mixture of doom and heavy metal riffage with a definite penchant for the morbid and sick atmospheres.
Are you ready for the ritual to begin? You better go sharpen your krises!
“The Cult of the Vestal Claret” is their second full length album after “Bloodbath” - released in 2011 - and will see the light in April 2014. Available on compact disc /vinyl / digital formats, this new release will have different tracklists.
STEEL PROPHET - New album announcement
STEEL PROPHET’s much discussed and long awaited new album “Omniscient” will be released by Cruz Del Sur Music in 2014, both on compact disc and vinyl formats.
A living reference for all fans of American Metal, STEEL PROPHET needs no introduction to the heavy metal world: with a long history, the band is particularly known for the technical and versatile guitar work of founding member Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor. Let's not forget the soaring vocals of Rick Mythiasin, who has returned to sing with Steel Prophet for the first time since 2002’s “Unseen” album.
“Omniscient” is a conceptual, science fiction themed album, with a heavy dose of unusual philosophies and ideas, that will appeal to all fans of Steel Prophet’s early works, especially the “Dark Hallucinations” period. This new album will have a visually outstanding package that will read like a graphic novel to highlight the story that underlines the music.
The album will be released in June 2014, when the band is scheduled to return on tour in Europe after their successful 2013 headliner show at the German cult-festival “KEEP IT TRUE”. Stay tuned for more relevant updates!

BATTLEROAR announces new album
Greek Epic Metal Heroes BATTLEROAR have hit Devasoundz Studio in Athens to start the recordings of their new album “Blood of Legends” this week.
The album will be produced by Thymios Krikos (INNERWISH) together with the band itself and will hit the streets in late April 2014, six years after their last studio album on Cruz del Sur Music, "To Death and Beyond...”.
After this release, the band went through important line-up changes, and ultimately found stability with the entrance of Stavros Aivaliotis on bass, Antreas Sotiropoulos on guitars, and Gerrit Mutz of SACRED STEEL’s fame on vocals.
A taste of “Blood of Legends” climax can be heard in the soundtrack of Greek fantasy movie "The Dragonphoenix Chronicles : Indomitable" (www.imdb.com/title/tt2182163), for which BATTLEROAR have contributed the song “Poisoned Well”. The track, which will be part of the upcoming album , can be heard here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOhBQc5ZlIM
“Blood of Legends” will be released in digipack, limited vinyl and digital album.
