New releases and STONEGRIFF T-shirts.
Our 3 new regular CD releases, as well as VV.AA. "Compendium of Metal Vol. 7" (details about this title will follow in a separate news post) were out and available already at the Keep It True festival (while the official release date for distributors was May 12th).
MELIAH RAGE "Warrior", the 8th full-length of these Boston-based power/thrashers is a solid, hook-filled album played by seasoned musicians, delivering the goods with confidence and showing they can still pack a punch. Don't expect a nostalgia trip here though, as they're not trying to revive their past - it's in the same vein as the band's more recent albums, however more aggressive this time.
OUTRAGE "We the Dead" is the 7th full-length album of these blackened thrash merchants from Germany, who were there already when the first wave of black metal was born. Their style developed over the years becoming more and more personal but their new album is still raw and primeval, and the hellish atmosphere has some underlying Middle Eastern and ancient Evil feel to it. You can order the new CD in a BUNDLE with their previous one, "Go to Hell".
MORTALICUM "Tears from the Grave", the 3rd album of these Swedes, is definitely a step towards classic doom metal, but their more uptempo hard rocking side with catchy riffs and melodies is still present here, and tight and heavy rhythm section always provides a strong backbone to their songs. The organic production leaves no doubt they've been raised on good old fashioned proto-metal. We made their new album available in 2 different BUNDLES (of 2 and 3 CDs), with their previous albums, "Progress of Doom" and "The Endtime Prophecy".
All three titles are available digitally too, not only from our Bandcamp page as MP3 320 kbps, FLAC and other lossless formats, but through CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic and many other retailers as well.
We have also added to our shop new T-shirts of our Swedish doomsters STONEGRIFF. We currently have 15 of them in all sizes (S, M, L, XL and XXL) - check the back print and details picture on the SHOP page. You can get them in a convenient bundle with the "Prologus Magicus" CD, saving 7,00 Euro!
