Cruz Del Sur Music starts sub-label: GATES OF HELL RECORDS
We’re proud to announce that in 2015 CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will give birth to a little, lovely sister: GATES OF HELL RECORDS!
GATES OF HELL RECORDS is a Cruz Del Sur sub-label that will focus on old school metal bands of all styles. Meaning classic heavy metal, but also black, death and thrash.
Many times we have been approached by valid bands, bands we liked but did not fit into Cruz Del Sur Music’s profile. In our constant search of high-quality bands we want to fill the gap with GATES OF HELL RECORDS, whose distribution & promotional tools will be the same as Cruz Del Sur Music’s. However GATES OF HELL RECORDS has its own A&R staff, so for all inquiries regarding the label news, releases, merchandise etc. you should refer to www.gatesofhellrecords.com.
First release will be the new ANAL VOMIT’s album “Peste Negra, Muerte Negra” in early 2015, under license of Icarus Music. The cult Peruvian-combo returns to spread terror with an overdose of blackened death-thrash in the tradition of the old South American masters.
“Peste Negra, Muerte Negra, " is a massive and crushing opus, guaranteed to summon the dead from their graves and unleash Hell on Earth.
The album will feature an outrageous artwork by Mottla Art and will be available in compact disc and vinyl formats, both limited.

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC signs HAMMER KING
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will release the debut album from new German epic power metal sensation, HAMMER KING! Even though “Kingdom of the Hammer King” is their debut album, HAMMER KING’s members are no novices. Singer Patrick Fuchs (Titan Fox) is known for being the lead vocalist of ROSS THE BOSS’ solo project (and also IVORY NIGHTS), and drummer Herr Schmitt is the former drummer of Germany's Top-Ten Rockoutfit SALTATIO MORTIS.What emerges from the gathering of these stalwart metal musicians is a slab of traditional, epic power-metal in the best Teutonic tradition!
Expect an album with plenty of melodies, epic choruses and galloping guitars produced with a clean, brilliant sound by the excellent Charles Greywolf (of POWERWOLF fame) in his own studio. “Kingdom of the Hammer King" will see the light in the first half of 2015 in compact disc, vinyl (with one bonus track) and digital editions. You can already have a taste of HAMMER KING by listening to the album's title track here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3a0Q7xKoj0
Andy Powell (Wishbone Ash):"I like to think there is a little bit of Metal in everything Wishbone Ash does. If I were to recommend one Heavy Metal band to listen to, it would be HAMMER KING"
Ross The Boss:"Hammer King is the real deal. Power Metal at its best!"

SAILLE unleash new lyric video
With the release of their new album ‘Eldritch’ imminent, epic black metallers Saille have unleashed a brand new song and lyric video, 'Eater Of Worlds'.
Based on the classic horror novel 'It', by American author Stephen King, 'Eater Of Worlds' is probably the most dynamic song on the forthcoming album. It's also very diverse, but all the while flowing effortlessly through a myriad of textures for which the Belgians are renowned for.
"This song has a mix of aggression, melancholy and epicness," comments keyboardist Dries Gaerdelen. "Especially with the real recorded trumpets and strings. These really add to the quality of the song together with the rawest screams on any Saille album so far from Dennie Grondelaers. This one is a joy to play live and we're eager to bring it to the stages."

Band statement about the new album: “After some truly exhausting, demanding, yet also very productive months, we have now finished the work on what will be our second full length album. An album that seems to curiously search for a sound throughout its whole playtime and therefore, through that very search, leads itself to an own sound. We have written down whatever came to our mind, trying to push ourselves forward with the urge to find out how far we can go and what we are able to do when forgetting about what lies in the past and what is to come..."
