Band and label already teamed up in the release of the debut album "Redemption", first step of the band into the global market. The new album “Butterflies” is an aggressive and melancholic female fronted power prog album, with ethereal vocals, abrasive riffing and pounding drums.»

Mystik - "Mystik" (album stream)

Δύο συγκροτήματα με τ' όνομα Mystik μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Το ένα αρέσκεται σε black metal μονοπάτια. Το άλλο -αυτό της σημερινής ανάρτησης- ακολουθεί πιο heavy / speed metal δρόμους. Δημιουργήθηκε προ τριετίας. Πέρυσι κυκλοφόρησε το demo "Demon".

Πλέον η μπάντα από την Στοκχόλμη κυκλοφόρησε ήδη (από χθες) το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο της (σε cd και κασέτα). Έχει προγραμματισθεί και κυκλοφορία βινυλίου για τον Ιούνιο. Αξίζει να σημειωθεί ότι από τα τέσσερα μέλη που μετείχαν στις ηχογραφήσεις του album η κιθαρίστρια Lo Wickman αποτελεί παρελθόν και οι Mystik συνεχίζουν ως τρίο...

Kat - "Black Night In My Chair" (audio)

Το τραγούδι των Kat "Black Night In My Chair" από το album "Without Looking Back"
Οι -εκ Πολωνίας ορμώμενοι- Kat είναι από τα παλαιότερα heavy metal συγκροτήματα. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 1979 και συνεχίζουν (με διαλείμματα) μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Από την παλαιά "φρουρά" έχει παραμείνει το ιδρυτικό μέλος Piotr Luczyk.

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει εννέα "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν τέσσερα singles, τρία live albums, ένα ep, ένα demo και τέσσερις συλλογές). Ο δέκατος είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Without Looking Back" κι αναμένεται στα μέσα Ιουνίου...

Δελτίο τύπου: «KAT - “Black Night In My Chair” - official single from the album „Without Looking Back“ - official release date: 14th of June 2019 on CD and 12th July 2019 on Vinyl by Pure Steel Records. KAT - once celebrated as the pioneers of Heavy Metal - are currently in their second spring.

The British Metal Hammer has recently selected their 1986 album "Metal And Hell" as one of the best 40 Black Metal albums in history, and their song 'Flying Fire' can be found in the movie "SQUADRON 303” - which held its world premiere in November 2018.

Now their latest work "Without Looking Back" will be released through Pure Steel Records. With this work, they add another highlight to their career, which started in 1981. Just think of the classic '666' from 1986 or 'Bastard' from 1992.Musically, KAT have always been an unpredictable metal monster that thrived in speed, heavy metal, black metal and later in thrash metal.

In 2019 they are HEAVIER THAN EVER. The Quartet with the band’s constant leader and guitarist Piotr Luczyk at the forefront is tearing slowly at the guts of Heavy Metal. The monstrous guitar, however, always remains classically melodic. KAT left the old relationships to VENOM and SODOM far behind, but in 2019 they compete with ACCEPT and RAGE. KAT will be in full bloom in 2019.»

Sacral Night - "The Blood Spattered Bride" (audio)

Οι Sacral Night μας έρχονται από την Γαλλία. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ πενταετίας και χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους ως "Heavy & Death Art". Πρόπερσι κυκλόφόρησαν το ep πέντε τραγουδιών "Darkness Process" και προ ημερών τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" τους δίσκο υπό τον τίτλο "Ancient Remains"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Once in a blue moon, you come across a band that just escapes clear labelling and breaks out of most of the formulas out there. We've been really struggling to pinpoint the style, find comparisons and give an accurate description of SACRAL NIGHT's music.

With the loss of the singer from the EP, the King Diamond similarities have diminished, but the sinister feeling and sense of the macabre have become even stronger. The vocal duties are now performed by the band's leader and bassist, Amphycion, who sang in his previous heavy metal band SANCTUAIRE - it's a passionate performance and there's a touch of melancholy in his voice.

He's also known for having played in death/black band NECROWRETCH, and musically, SACRAL NIGHT sometimes dwell more in the death / black metal realm. There's tremolo style guitar picking, some disharmonic chords and blast beats, and one thing worth noting is the great, organic sounding drum work. All in all, an intense, unique and personal sounding debut album.

Descend into the darkest catacombs, descend into madness... and let the heavy metal blackness embrace you. Check it out if you're into any of these bands: SANCTUAIRE (Fra.), ATTIC, BEWITCHED (Chl.), SATAN'S HOST, DISSECTION, IN SOLITUDE, early DEATH, TRIBULATION and early DEATH SS.»
