Με την επιστροφή τους στην Ολλανδία δημιούργησαν τους Imperia, οι οποίοι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει πέντε "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν τέσσερα singles και μία συλλογή). Παράλληλα όλα τα μέλη της μπάντας δημιούργησαν (ως side project) τους Angel.

Guardian Of Lightning - "Cosmos Tree" (video)

Open your great mind
To see your real true
Cus we are the fruit
Of the cosmos tree

Let the rattles lead you
Cus sometimes we need to break
The silence to find the
Peace

Open your great mind
To see your real true
Cus we are the fruit
Of the cosmos tree

Look into the past to try
To find the great secrets
And see in the future
The answers destiny


Οι Guardian Of Lightning δημιουργήθηκαν προ τριετίας στην Βραζιλία. Heavy metal τρίο με έμφαση στο μπάσο (που έχει ηγετικό ρόλο αλά Manowar ή Motoerhead), η οποία αποκαλεί την μουσική της "Thunder Metal". Το ντεμπούτο των Guardian Of Lightning τιτλοφορείται "Cosmos Tree" κι αναμένεται στην καρδιά του καλοκαιριού. Ενδιαφέρουσα περίπτωση...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Cosmos Tree by Guardian Of Lightning, a thunder metal band from Sao Paulo, Brazil. This is the title track and first single from the band's debut full-length album 'Cosmos Tree' which will be released worldwide on July 17, 2020 via Eclipse Records. The album was produced by Eurico Tavares.»

Bio: «Guardian of Lightning is the herald of a new wave of metal, known as thunder metal. Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil the three-piece band featuring lead bassist Iron King, his father Marco Fino on vocals and rhythm guitar, and Lord Drum on the drums.

The band's unique sound known as "thunder metal" is a fresh take on the metal genre, replacing the typical lead guitar role with that of an ultra-heavy thundering electric bass. Lead bassist Iron (yes that is his real name) grew up surrounded by music.

His father Marco was always in one band or another performing and touring throughout the Brazilian music scene, so he quickly became accustomed to the music lifestyle of going to loud concerts, watching his father on stage, and it wasn't long before he started picking up the bass guitar writing his own songs, and following in the footsteps of bass legends such as Cliff Burton, Joey DeMaio, and Lemmy Kilmeister.

Guardian of Lightning was formed in 2017 and the band quickly began rehearsing the songs Iron was writing for the band, exploring new possibilities and sounds. After a gig at a local rock club, the band was approached by the great Brazilian rock producer Caio Ribeiro (Sepultura, A-Ha, Ian Paice).

Interested in the potential the band had with a lead bassist, Caio had the band into his studio Stage Record to record a two-song demo. The reception was overwhelmingly positive, and the band decided to write more material before heading back to Stage Record with Caio to complete their debut album.

In 2018 the band found out that their producer and close friend Caio Ribeiro was diagnosed with cancer, and the disease progressed quickly. While on his deathbed, he told Iron that the band would go on to create a great album which the world would one day hear.

Caio passed away shortly thereafter, and the band took some time to mourn the loss of their dead friend and reflect on what the future held for Guardian of Lightning. Towards the end of 2018, the band were contacted by producer Eurico Tavares.

Eurico had assisted Caio with producing the first Guardian of Lightning demo and told the band that he had found the presets for the two previous songs which Caio recorded, which meant that they could be used alongside the new material.

In 2019, the band re-entered Stage Record with their new producer Eurico Tavares to finish their debut full-length album, Cosmos Tree. During the sessions, it was possible to feel the presence of Caio Ribeiro in the studio with them.

The positivity and good vibrations were very emotional for the band, and after twelve solid days the result was eight thundering metal tracks unlike anything ever heard by mortal ears before... Cosmos Tree is currently planned for a worldwide release via Eclipse Records in the Summer of 2020.»

Lost Legacy - "Front Line" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Lost Legacy "In the Name of Freedom"
On my first day
I was sent to the front line
I’m scared to death
Of what happens to me next

I just want to make it
Through the first night in the desert

When the daylight breaks
I'll be dancing with the devil

Hell is where the metal meets the meat
Out here in the street there’s no TV screen
Hell is where the metal meets the meat
Out here in the street is where
I want to be Right here in the front line

I didn’t ask for a free pass from the war
I signed up on my own
to defend my country back home

Meridian - "Hungry For A Game" (Skagarack cover)

You look at a guy who's working from nine to five
But deep underneath there is a secret I hide
It starts around five, I'm feeling restless
When we get to six, my hands are shakin'

Oh, the fever is back, it's time to supply my vice
Oh, there's no turning back, I need to roll the dice

Hungry for a game, and I don't care which kind
Hungry for a game, all there is on my mind
Hungry for a game, got it in my blood
And I just can't resist, whoa
Hungry for a game, stay till morning light
Hungry for a game, feel like winning tonight
There's no one to blame but the devil in me
Who wants a game, Vegas here I come

I can't leave this place, the roulette is much too strong
A force deep inside wants me to go on and on, yeah
Between pleasure and pain, there is a fine line, yes
So please, Lady Luck, show me your mercy in time

Oh, the fever is back, it's time to supply my vice
Oh, there's no turning back, I need to roll the dice

Hungry for a game, and I don't care which kind
Hungry for a game, all there is on my mind
Hungry for a game, got it in my blood
And I just can't resist, whoa
Hungry for a game, stay till morning light
Hungry for a game, feel like winning tonight
There's no-one to blame but the devil in me
Who wants a game, Vegas here I come

Hungry for a game
Hungry for a game
Hungry for a game, got it in my blood
And I just can't resist, whoa
Hungry for a game, stay till morning light
Hungry for a game, feel like winning tonight
Hungry for a game
And I just can't let go

I'm hungry for a game
I just can't let go


Ep με διασκευές είναι το δισκογραφικό βήμα των Meridian το 2020. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Taking Cover" χωρίς να έχουν γίνει ακόμη γνωστά περισσότερα στοιχεία (πχ tracklist ή ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας) πέραν από το βίντεο της διασκευής του τραγουδιού των Skagarack, "Hungry For A Game". Οι Meridian μας έρχονται από την Δανία και "υπάρχουν" στο heavy metal σύμπαν τα τελευταία 15 χρόνια. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τρία EPs, ένα demo και τρεις full length δίσκους...
