Δελτίο τύπου: «Italy's pagan metal band MaterDea unleashes the lyric video of "Neverland", taken from the latest album "Pyaneta" released by Rockshots Records on June 8. “Pyaneta” is a new fascinating and enthralling journey.

It is a powerful symphony where all the instruments and the voices join the sounds of the Nature, painting new grandiose landscapes enriched by colors and sophisticated arrangements.

The melodies reveal themselves along with the sumptuous guitar riffs, a powerful rhythmic session and the twist of strings and orchestration, allowing the listener to be carried away in a dimension full of energy, beauty and hope by these magical tales.

“Pyaneta” is also an exhortation to a better awareness of the deep interconnection that exists between every living being and the largest, sentient organism that hosts us, our planet Earth. It is a message of love for life in its gorgeous wholeness.»

Wolfen - "Rise Of The Lycans" (full album)

Wolfen - "Rise Of The Lycans" (album)
Ο έκτος δίσκος των Wolfen κυκλοφορεί ήδη. Τιτλοφορείται "Rise Of The Lycans" και "βγήκε" στα τέλη Ιουνίου. Οι Wolfen μας έρχονται από την Γερμανία, δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από 24 χρόνια και δηλώνουν ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι: Iced Earth, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica, Nevermore...

Δελτίο τύπου: «This is the sixth album in the band's career and contains all typical Wolfen trademarks and much more. It is way more powerful than it's predecessors, making it an actual Melodic Power metal album with thrash influences. Furthermore, an utopian concept story stretching over four songs was composed.

All songs are full of the characteristic vocals, a very powerful rhythm section and some extraordinary guitar-work, which has always played a huge role in the band's sound. After the quintet gained new uplift through their comeback album "Chapter IV" and its successor "Evilution", also thanks to the terrific feedback from the online press, continuation seemed to be the only right and logical step!

The outcome can be seen as the peak of the band's current creative period and encapsulates all of their facets. Everything's rounded up with a killer production by Martin Buchwalter from the Gernhart Studios! Even if it may sound worn out: The band sounds as good as never before!!!»

Habitual Sins - "The Djinn" (video)

Οι Habitual Sins είναι καινούριο συγκρότημα, αλλά τα μέλη που το απαρτίζουν μόνο νέα δεν μπορούν να χαρακτηρισθούν. Μάλλον το αντίθετο, "παλιές καραβάνες" στον US heavy / power metal χώρο. Ο Matthew Bizilia τραγουδούσε στους Icarus Witch (μέχρι το 2010), ο Steve Pollick είναι ο κιθαρίστας των Order of Nine (και των Icarus Witch μέχρι το "Songs for the Lost" του 2007) και ο Jim Dofka μετέχει στους Dofka, στο συγκρότημα της Leather Leone, ενώ στο παρελθόν "έχει φορέσει την φανέλα" των Screamer, Psycho Scream, Brick Mistress και ως "προσκεκλημένος" τον έχουμε απολαύσει (μεταξύ άλλων) σε γκρουπάρες όπως οι Pharaoh (σε πέντε δίσκους) και οι Dark Arena (στο album του 2012 "Ode to the Ancients"). Το ντεμπούτο της τριάδας τιτλοφορείται "Personal Demons" και κυκλοφόρησε τον Ιανουάριο του 2017...

Το βίντεο των Habitual Sins για το "The Djinn" από το album "Personal Demons"

Track listing:
01. RAVENS
02. THE DJINN
03. FAR BEYOND HADES
04. WATCH THE FIRE RISE
05. THE PRINCE OF WALLACHIA
06. KISS OF SHAME
07. I PRAY FOR YOU
08. FOREVER BE TORMENTED
09. DOWN HERE IN SODOM
10. WHEN THE INQUISITION CALLS

Band members:
Matthew Bizilia - vocals, percussion, bass, keyboards
Steve Pollick - guitars, keyboards
Jim Dofka - guitars

Δελτίο τύπου: «Habitual Sins is the latest US signing of Pure Steel Records. The newcomer band is committed, on its debut album "Personal Demons", to true 80s Heavy Metal. These ten songs will take you back. They are uncompromisingly powerful. Matthew Bizilia, Steve Pollick, and Jim Dofka are no newcomers to the world of Metal, of course. They are veterans of the US Thrash and Power Metal scene. These three guys created a phenomenal album comparable to Metal Church's album "The Dark"! Skillful riffs and Matthew Bizilia's brilliant vocals let the listener travel into the depths of his own sinful soul. "Personal Demons" may your darkness burn within.»
