The US epic Heavy/Speed Metal merchants SKELATOR are back with their 2nd studio album! The first 4 songs are catchy bad-ass metal anthems that will have you singing along and pounding your fist in the air instantly. And then there's something very special for all Michael Moorcock fans: "Elric: the Dragon Prince", a 40 minutes epic in 12 parts, displaying the true versatility of the band's music and sheer talent of the singer, who shows the different facets of his voice, including his trademark high pitched soaring screams. Fans of SACRED STEEL, DOMINE, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, AGENT STEEL and DIO, take heed! These guys have been waving the flag of True Metal high already for 14 years, but they are still wild like kids hungry for Metal!
