Ritual - "Beyond The Sea" (trailer)

Υπάρχουν καμιά δεκαριά metal συγκροτήματα με το όνομα Ritual. Όλα από τις Η.Π.Α. Η μπάντας της παρούσας ανάρτησης μας έρχεται από το Οχάιο. Υπάρχει από τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα κι αρέσκεται στο να... αλλάζει ονόματα!

Firedance το πρώτο όνομα, Rotterdam (τρία demos) το δεύτερο, ακολουθεί το Torment (επίσης τρία demos) και στην συνέχεια το Tormentor. Το 1992 εμφανίσθηκε στο προσκήνιο το Ritual, το οποίο μετά από μία τριετία έγινε Ritual of Torment (ένας δίσκος). Από πρόπερσι οι Αμερικανοί power metallers επέστρεψαν στο Ritual.

Ως Ritual έχουν κυκλοφορήσει ένα full length album ("Trials of Torment" 1993) κι ένα ep ("Relapse of Aggression" 1995). Ο νέος τους "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Trials Of Torment" κι αναμένεται στα μέσα Μαρτίου. Για την ακρίβεια δεν είναι και τόσο... νέος, καθώς πρόκειται για επανακυκλοφορία του album του 1993 με δύο επιπλέον τραγούδια.

Αξίζει να σημειωθεί ότι είναι ο δεύτερος δίσκος που θα κυκλοφορήσει τον πρώτο μήνα της άνοιξης (την ίδια ημερομηνία!) και τραγουδάει ο Juan Ricardo. Ο άλλος είναι το "Man or Machine" των Wretch. Να υπενθυμίσω ότι ο Ricardo τραγούδησε -μεταξύ άλλων- στους Dark Arena, των οποίων το "Alien Factor" του 2006 το θεωρώ απαραίτητο για κάθε φίλο του US Power Metal...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Ritual has released a Trailer for the Album "Trials Of Torment". The Trailer includes the song "Beyond The Sea", which will also be released as official video. The release date of the Ritual album on CD is March 15th, 2019.»

Band: Ritual
Country of origin: United States

Δελτίο τύπου: «Swedish metallers Enforcer recently announced the release of their highly anticipated new studio album "Zenith", their first record in 4 years. Today the quartet has launched a music video in support of the stomping first single, "Die For The Devil", to give their fans a first taster of their forthcoming offering.»

Idle Hands - "Give Me To The Night" (audio)

Such a life without the light, do you fear to lose your sight?
Well it doesn’t bother me, cause you don’t see what I see
There’s a devil in my mind and the mysteries of time revealed
In the dark I’m running free, give to me your energy

Oh, give me to the night, give me to the ages, take me away
Give me to the night, give me to the ages, the darkness is calling

I don’t think of all the things that I will never be
I don’t think of all the places that I will never see
And I won’t get on my knees, for all the people I can’t please
But it seems to be so easy for you, so do it by yourself!

Oh, give me to the night, give me to the ages, take me away
Give me to the night, give me to the ages, the darkness is calling my name
...again and again and again!

Οι Idle Hands είναι ένα καινούριο συγκρότημα από τις Η.Π.Α. Δημιουργήθηκαν πρόπερσι και ακροβατούν ανάμεσα στο παραδοσιακό heavy metal και το Gothic Rock.
