Δελτίο τύπου: «Celebrating their 50th Anniversary as a band in 2018, Nazareth is marking the occasion with a hard rocking new album, “Tattooed On My Brain”. Scheduled for release on Frontiers Music srl on October 12, 2018, the album will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats. "Tattooed On My Brain" is their 24th full length album and the first to feature new vocalist Carl Sentance (ex-Persian Risk, Don Airey).

While it is difficult to sum up in few words the history and the influence on the history of rock that an act like Nazareth has had, there is no doubt that they have left an indelible mark. The band originally formed in Dumferline, Scotland in 1968, releasing their eponymous debut album in 1971. The band broke through to a larger audience when, after supporting Deep Purple on tour, they released the Roger Glover-produced “Razamanaz” album in early 1973.

A string of hit records including “Loud 'N’ Proud”, “Rampant”, and their biggest success "Hair of the Dog" (featuring the smash hits "Hair Of The Dog" and "Love Hurts") followed, cementing the band's legacy in the history of hard rock. Nazareth continued on throughout the '80s and '90s, making new studio albums and touring the world.

In 2014, original singer Dan McCafferty had to leave the band for health reasons and with his blessing, Carl Sentance is now fronting the legendary band. Rejuvenated and as energetic as ever, Nazareth is back with an album that firmly shows their roots, but also sees the band progressing forward and seeing the future. These songs are infection, hooky and instantly memorable....just as you'd expect from Nazareth! »

Δελτίο τύπου: «Cat O' Nine Tails -the first Christian pirate metal band- rises from the coasts of Finland. The birth of this four-piece pirate crew dates back to 2012 when bassist Tuomas Kannisto (also known for the band HB) and guitarist Samuel Savander started to write music with this very unique twist.

The crew needed a captain and thus a versatile vocalist Janne Heiskanen joined the band. The rhythm section was flogged by Lauri Tuomenoksa who then abandoned the ship and was replaced by Eetu Pesu in 2016. Cat O' Nine Tails aims now for the international waters and continues to create new music with open-minded experimentation.»

Kingnomad - "The Great Nothing" (full album)

Ο δίσκος των Kingnomad "The Great Nothing"
Band: Kingnomad
Country of origin: Sweden
Genre: Occult Doom Rock
Album: "The Great Nothing"
Type: Full length
Release date: July 6th, 2018
Label: Ripple Music

Band members:
Mr Jay - Vocals, lead guitar, piano and organ
Mano - Drums and percussion
Marcus - Guitar, keyboard and psychedelia
Maximilian - Bass

Δελτίο τύπου: «A concept album in the truest sense. A heavy psychedelic piece of music with some progressive leanings. Full of secrets, reoccurring themes, and hidden meanings. Its epic yet fragile, heavy yet subtle. Recorded and produced by Mr Jay in the Crazy Heart Studio.»

Ripple Music: «Sweden's Kingnomad are back with the follow-up to 2017's "Mapping the Inner Void" - "The Great Nothing." 5 tracks of that familiar Kingnomad sound - haunting doom that rocks when it needs to and eases up to lure you in further before circling through stoner landscapes and down a winding psychedelic staircase straight into the heart of The Great Nothing.»

Βιογραφικό: «Kingnomad saw the light of day January 2014. Jay and Marcus - The best of friends and neigbours was often hanging out in the studio in Jay’s basement, jammin on fuzzy Sabbath riffs. One day, one of them riffs turned into a song - Lucifer Is Dead.

With that song, a thought and a purpose followed. The thought – To make music that combined the old 70s sound with nice haunting vocal arrangements, and lyrics that could carry you of to dark and distant worlds. The purpose - To have some fun doing that!

February 24 2017 the seeds of purpose and fun resulted in the debut album “Mapping the inner void”, a heavy psychedelic piece through Lovecraftian landscapes.

That very same year the writing of a new album began. And with the new drummer Mano behind the kit, the new music is soon ready to transport you to the limits of the mind... and beyond.

From the “Crazy Heart Studio” in Jay’s basement in that small forest village in northen Sweden - A never ending stream of occult, psychedelic, progressive, 70s rock is pouring out. Leaving no soul untouched.»
