SENTIENT HORROR - New Album "Rites Of Gore" via Testimony Records - Details and Video Clip revealed
Testimony Records proudly announces the third full-length album of New Jersey based Death Metallers SENTIENT HORROR!
"Rites Of Gore" will be released on April 22nd 2022 on CD, LP and digitally. It was mixed by Jonny Pettersson at Studio Unbound, Sweden and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Osterby, Germany. The cover artwork was created by Juanjo Castellano Rosado.
The first single / video clip, "Till Death Do Us Rot", can be checked out here: https://youtu.be/ncuk9SX0blI
Once again, with the help of Redefining Darkness Records (N. America) and Testimony Records (Europe), SENTIENT HORROR are gearing up to release their third full length album “Rites Of Gore,” a record that twists, turns, molds, and deconstructs the listener on a lucid journey through the macabre and the magnificent.
Frontman and creative mastermind Matt Moliti says: "I started writing 'Rites Of Gore' around the fall of 2020. The pandemic really had an effect on me mentally. I became very pessimistic and misanthropic over people’s inability to cooperate and do the right thing in the face of a global crisis. That headspace resulted in a record that is overall more direct and brutal than our previous album, 'Morbid Realms'."
Early listeners to the record report that this is SENTIENT HORROR at their most deadly. Progression and retrospection balance on a rotting carcass while the soundtrack to a war rages all around. Do not make the mistake of being an innocent bystander. The band returns to classic themes of the undead and murderous slashers. Join them in their tales of blood gargling gore as they melt your face off with punishing riffs and finely honed songs.

WITCH CROSS - "Angel Of Death" Lyric Video
Copenhagen's WITCH CROSS have revealed a lyric video for the title track of their latest full-length abum, "Angel Of Death", which was released in June 2021 via High Roller Records.
Check it out at this location: https://youtu.be/Gp1YoU3i4jc
"Angel Of Death" was recorded by band founder and guitarist Mike Koch together with Jan "little John" Normark on bass, Kevin Moore on vocals, Paul Martin on guitar and Jesper Haugaard on the drums. It was mixed by Mike Exeter (Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Cradle Of Filth) and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pretty Maids).
WITCH CROSS must rate as one of the best Danish heavy metal bands ever. The band's 1984 album "Fit For Fight" is surely one of the top 5 albums in the history of Danish heavy metal. After a long pause, "Fit For Fight" was followed by the second album "Axe To Grind" in 2013.

THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION - New Album "Le Demon De L'Amour" - Video Clip revealed
Cruz Del Sur Music proudly presents "My Precious One", the first single of THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION’s upcoming album "Le Demon De L'Amour"!
Check out the video clip at this location: https://youtu.be/NvhJWU4dVfI
THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION brings back the love song and rocks as furiously as ever on their fifth studio full-length!
Heading into the creation of their fifth studio album, "Le Demon De L’Amour", the Australian psychedelic rock and roll brigade couldn’t let go of the fact that love songs had been commandeered, in their words, by “soft rockers, bedwetters and the introvert crowd.” Whereas rock had its glory period during the 1970s and 80s, the art of the love song is now lost within heavier music. Few bands are now willing to venture into such territory — metal and rock have settled comfortably into typical, predictable lyrical tropes that fail to pull at the heartstrings the way they used to. On "Le Demon De L’Amour", THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION reclaims the art of the love song as their own.
Off the heels of their acclaimed 2019 "Memoirs of a Rat Queen" studio album, the members of THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION utilized the unexpected downtime afforded from the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic to craft an album that takes more chances than its predecessor. While the band’s trademark rock swagger and prog tendencies still come into play, "Le Demon" ups the voltage and energy. True, there is a multitude of genre-blurring taking place, but the album’s infectious choruses and leaden riffs easily re-imagine metal and rock’s glory eras without blatant thievery.
Of course, all roads to THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION run through lead vocalist Screamin’ Loz Sutch and her stage persona, The Imperial Priestess. "Le Demon"’s eight cuts find the indomitable frontwoman in top form, belting out tales of love from a female’s perspective, weaving in stories of cult worship, murder and hypnotism. The album’s artwork (created by guitarist Inverted CruciFox) also introduces her new nemesis — The Wizzard Princess.
Recorded at bass player JayTanic Ritual’s The Ped Food Factory in Marrickville, Sydney, with mixing duties provided by Clem Bennett, "Le Demon De L’Amour" leads THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION into their tenth anniversary next year. Their journey has taken them from the sweaty clubs of Sydney to a global audience. Now armed with eight love songs sure to melt and captivate the most hardened metal hearts, THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION boldly goes where few bands dare to go.
"Le Demon De L'Amour" will be released on February 14th 2022!

ERIC WAGNER - First single from posthumous solo album "In The Lonely Light Of Mourning"
The first single from former TROUBLE singer Eric Wagner’s posthumous solo album, "In The Lonely Light Of Mourning" has been revealed.
Check out ""Maybe Tomorrow" at this location: https://youtu.be/TDxWg92ikSs
Pre-Orders: https://tinyurl.com/yybxfk47 (CD) +++ https://tinyurl.com/2p95uud9 (LP)
Recorded at Alpha Sound Services and Aardvark Recording, "In The Lonely Light Of Mourning" was completed and delivered to Cruz Del Sur Music a month before Eric's untimely passing. Initially scheduled for a November 2021 release, Cruz Del Sur Music — in cooperation with Eric's manager, Mike Smith — agreed to move the release date to March 2022 to give it the attention it deserves.
The solo endeavor — a longtime goal of Eric's — serves as a fitting testament to one of doom metal's most respected voices. Eric tapped former TROUBLE/current BLACKFINGER drummer David Snyder to help him assemble the album's eight cuts. Along the way, Eric brought in some of his favorite musicians as guests — including past and present members of TROUBLE, BLACKFINGER, THE SKULL, LID, PENTAGRAM, DEATH ROW and PLACE OF SKULLS.
According to Snyder, the origins for “Maybe Tomorrow” had been kicking around for quite some time.
“The pre-chorus part was definitely influenced by Chuck Robinson’s old band, THIS TORTURED SOUL which at that time, I had the pleasure of playing second guitar for a few shows,” he says. “That influenced things for sure. The verses and descending single note parts were Eric’s suggestions and the main riff was originally just single notes. And, just before recording, Eric wanted it heavier, so I added the low droning open note and asked what he thought and in true Eric form, he calmly said, ‘That’s it. It’s a jam.’
“On the first rough mixes you can hear him say it when the song started while he did the vocals, which definitely brought a smile every time I heard it,” Snyder continues. “The songs’ style ended up being a cool full-circle thing with Chuck and I and being fans of Eric’s music, who greatly influenced our own styles. Add in Lothar Keller’s stunning solo and Ron Holzner’s badass bass and it rounded the whole track out rather well, I have to say.”
“It's very interesting hearing this tune now that Eric has gone to the other side,” adds Keller. “Call it premonition or whatever someone's take on it is — you can hear it in his voice and it will definitely hit you. I am honored to have been a part of Eric's last album and his legacy will continue to live on in the hearts of many!”
The aforementioned Robinson played a vital role on “The Lonely Light Of Mourning”. Robinson wrote “Isolation” and “Wish You Well” and co-wrote “Rest In Peace” with Snyder. He also played rhythm guitars on every song except “If He Lost It All” and played bass on “Wish You Well”.
“The groove and vibe on ‘Maybe Tomorrow’ is insane!” says Robinson. “It’s just a killer riff with great drive. Dave is such a great remember. I remember Eric was very adamant how he wanted the feel to be. Eric’s lyrics were so personal to him. He was a master with words, hidden meanings and messages. Only he knew for sure…”

HITTEN - New Single / Video Clip - "Something To Hide"
Spain's classic Heavy Metal force HITTEN has revealed another single from their upcoming new album, "Triumph & Tragedy"!
A video clip for "Something To Hide" is available at this location: https://youtu.be/HKipMJUzoTA
"Triumph & Tragedy" will be released via High Roller Records on November 26th 2021.
The band's fourth full-length showcases an evolution that takes the band to a closer sound to the US Hard and Heavy from the 80s with guitar riffs that could match the magic of guitar heroes such as George Lynch or Paul Gilbert. About the vocals, it is definitely hard to find a singer who hits the high octaves the way the singer Alexx Panza can do, clean and melodic with an outstanding quality that will delight the ears of fans of bands such as Firehouse, Crimson Glory, Queensrÿche or Riot. "Triumph & Tragedy" establishes HITTEN as one of the best Heavy Metal bands nowadays!
The cover artwork was created by Marc Schoenbach (Sadistart Designs) while the back cover and booklet graphics have been made by Dani Meseguer (Bloodyart Designs).

MIRROR - Deal with Cruz Del Sur Music - New Album "The Day Bastard Leaders Die" announced for spring 2022
Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of multi-national classic occult metallers MIRROR! The label will release the band’s third full-length, "The Day Bastard Leaders Die", in spring 2022.
Formed in 2015 by former ELECTRIC WIZARD bassist Tas and vocalist Jimmy Mavrommatis, MIRROR released their self-titled debut the same year. Their 2019 “Pyramid Of Terror” follow-up was hailed for its energetic blend of NWOBHM and 70s proto-rock, particularly Mavrommatis’s high-wire vocal delivery and the band’s deft use of twin-guitar melodies. MIRROR soon found itself a new record deal when guitarist Nikolas Moutafis contacted the Cruz Del Sur Music brass and inquired about a partnership.
“We are happy and excited about signing with Cruz Del Sur,” says Tas. “The label’s ownership loved the songs on ‘The Day Bastard Leaders Die’. We started recording the album last year but had a few delays because of COVID. Somehow, we made it. Our producer is my good friend, Costa Costopoulos, and he’s based in Athens and did a fantastic job.”
MIRROR, which is rounded out by drummer Daniel Georgiou and second guitarist Dino, had a tall order following “Pyramid Of Terror”. But, according to Tas, “The Day Bastard Leaders Die” should surpass its predecessor in more ways than one.
“Overall, it’s a heavier and faster album than ‘Pyramid Of Terror’. This was not intended, but a lot of frustration came out when we were composing the songs. The album is in the same vein as the ones before, though, and it’s still classic, raw heavy metal.”
