Product information "ALL LIFE ENDS - Miscreation - CD"

Old school meets modern extreme!

ALL LIFE ENDS from switzerland, founded in 2006, have always offered their listeners a mixture of pure, heavy, old-school death with influences of modern extreme metal and have since inspired metalheads who love uncompromising death metal with technical but also traditional influences with melodic parts and sophisticated guitar solos.

The release of their 2020 full-length debut "The Plague of Man" coincided with the beginning of the Covid pandemic, which meant that a planned tour through Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic had to be cancelled. However, the band were not idle during the pandemic and used the time to work on the successor "Miscreation", which is now available here.

With a brute sound and extremely impressive artwork, "Miscreation", which was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö, promises to be a real highlight for fans of the genre.

WALLOP - Hell On Wheels - CD
Oldschool Heavy Metal! After drummer Stefan Arnold left Grave Digger in 2018 after almost 23 years, it was time to resurrect the cult band WALLOP in the same year! And so the German heavy metal veterans, who released the highly acclaimed debut album "Metallic Alps" in 1985, disbanded afterwards and reunited 35 years later in their original line-up just as loudly, aggressively and enthusiastically, after "Alps On Fire" (2020) are now releasing their third longplayer. "Hell On Wheels" features unadulterated and authentic, original 80s old school heavy metal. On the one hand, the band has managed to develop further, but on the other hand, they don't sound like a modern band, because it is precisely the style of the 80s that characterizes the band. The use of keys and triggers was deliberately avoided during the album recordings. This album offers 10 songs full of independent old school heavy metal with catchy and straightforward songs that pick up speed and delight every fan of classic heavy metal!

COMMANDER - Angstridden - CD
Back with Impact! After their 2018 album "Fatalis", the South German death metal veterans, who have been around since 1999, are releasing a new heavyweight in record stores in 2024! The now 4th longplayer "Angstridden" once again impresses with a rough and brute death metal framework, whereby the band increasingly emphasizes its roots in the more extreme styles. Between furious blastbeat songs there are also quite groove-oriented elements before the new work culminates in the final track and undoubted highlight of the album "No Compulsion To Live", which leads into a true growl choir of 10 different growlers/screamers. Recorded and produced in the Sick Of Sound Studio under the direction of Michael Kraxenberger, the Bavarians really let it rip on "Angstridden" and undoubtedly deliver the highlight of their musical work to date with these ten tracks!

IRA TENAX - Dark Awakening CD
Melodic Death Metal to the point! The melodic death band IRA TENAX have been making their mark on the German metal scene since 1999. In 2024, the quartet are not only celebrating their 25th anniversary, but are also releasing a new album 10 years after their last longplayer "Portrait Of The Fallen" from 2014!  "Dark Awakening", the title of the new output, impresses with classic trademarks on its 11 tracks, both from the band itself and from melodic death metal as it has been present since the mid/end of the nineties. Melodic riffs meet brute drumming and versatile vocals to create an overall sound that sets the band pleasantly apart from the sheer endless abundance of bands in this genre, without having to reinvent the wheel or flirt with daring genre mixes. „Dark Awakening" was mixed and mastered by Kai Stahlenberg at Kohlekeller - Studio B (e.g. Disbelief, Agathodaimon) and the album artwork was created by Ken Coleman. "Dark Awakening" is a (melodic) death metal album as it should be. Brutal, technically and musically sophisticated, varied and yet precise to the point.

GRAND MASSIVE - Houses Of The Unholy - CD
Massive Metal! The germans from Grand Massive have been on the road since 2009 and have been able to gain a steadily growing following with 4 albums and several singles and EPs, as well as retaining it with massive live performances. With "Houses Of The Unholy", the bavarians are now releasing 5 songs that, with a playing time of just under 28 minutes, are not far removed from the longplayers of many other colleagues, but are not a "normal" release for the band itself. Rather, it is intended to bridge the waiting time for the next, "really long" album. In order to emphasize the special nature of the release, the aim was to bring some old companions on board right from the start. For example, original drummer Holger Stich was on drums for the recordings and Randy M Salo, an old companion of the band, was on bass. Above all, none other than the legendary Bay Area guitarist Doug Pearcy (Blind Illusion, ex-Heathen, ex-Anvil Bitch) recorded almost all the solos!  The album was mastered by Andy Claasen at Stage One Studio and with "Jump In The Fire" they took a Metallica classic and interpreted it in their very own, doomy, massive metal guise! In the end, "Houses Of The Unholy" is much more than just a "gap filler", but rather a massive demonstration of musical elemental force.

VHÄLDEMAR - Sanctuary Of Death - CD
Ready for Battle! With "Sanctuary Of Death", Spain's biggest (English-speaking) heavy metal band is about to release their seventh longplayer. 11 brand new tracks that should make the heart of every melodic heavy and power metal fan beat faster! The quintet has been flying the traditional metal flag since the end of the 90s and is inspiring a growing following outside Spain with catchy melodies and true anthems. Like its predecessors, the album was recorded and produced at Chromaticity Studios by guitarist and producer Pedro J. Monge and the artwork is also based on tradition, with Darkgrove, who has also created artwork for Manowar, Testament, Battle Beast and others, once again on board. "Sanctuary Of Death" is undoubtedly one of the heavy/power metal highlights of the year!

FINAL CRY - Zombique - CD
New edition of the completely sold-out 2018 album by Lower Saxony melodic death/thrashers Final Cry. With "Zombique", the band made an impressive comeback after 11 years of radio silence and released the rawest and heaviest album in their history to date. Guitarist Eiko, who took over the vocals in the meantime, characterizes this album with deep growls (rather unusual for Final Cry up to this point) and contributes a lot to the fact that the content concept, which revolves around voodoo cults and zombie stories among the Caribbean slaves with partly historically documented protagonists and their influence up to the Haitian revolution, also unfolds musically in full brutality.  Recorded and produced under the direction of Jost Schlüter at Pure Sonic Studios in Langelsheim, "Zombique" also features all of the band's trademarks that have grown over the years: merciless riffing, high tempos, great melodies and guitarist Eiko Truckenbrodt's almost unmistakable solos.  "Zombique" is a prime example of how a band should come back after a long break: With a punch right in the face! This re-released version of the comeback album features a slightly modified cover artwork.

EXTINCT - Incitement Of Violence - CD
Thrash Metal rule em all! The northern German thrashers from Extinct have been making their mark on the German metal scene since 2003. From the very beginning, the quartet has indulged in a mixture of old school thrash and modern death/thrash, with musical roots in both German and American thrash metal of the 80s. After their Full Lengt debut in 2013 and the "Downward Spiral" EP from 2021, it's finally time to present their second longplayer. With "Incitement Of Violence", they pick up exactly where they left off with their predecessors and put 12 grenades in the player that are guaranteed to make your neck ache. From pounding mid-tempo parts to slayeresque thrashing passages, the listener will find everything the thrashers heart desires. When talking about the burgeoning New Wave Of German Thrash Metal, Extinct is a name you can't miss in 2024, also due to their lively live presence.

BATTLECREEK - Maze Of The Mind - CD
German Thrash Metal meets Bay Area! With their third album "Maze of the Mind", the four thrashers from Battlecreek combine the unmistakable sound of German thrash metal with their Bay Area roots and transport it powerfully into the present. Since their formation in 2004, the four Bavarians have also tirelessly made a name for themselves in the national metal scene through countless live activities, which is why the quartet was also included in the documentary "Total Thrash" (2022) as a representative of the New Wave Of German Thrash Metal. The album was recorded and produced at 48Nord Studios by Chris Schmid, the song "Granvilles Hammer" also features a guest appearance by Philly Byrne from the Irish band Gamma Bomb, while the artwork was created by scene icon Andreas Marschall. "Maze Of The Mind" impressively demonstrates the sheer indomitable joy with which the guys go about their work and gives an idea that the quartet is also capable of bringing this energy to the stage.

FATAL FIRE - Arson - CD
Female fronted Power Metal! With Fatal Fire, one of Germany's most promising power metal newcomers is preparing to leave a clear mark on the metal landscape with an extremely successful debut. The band was founded in 2020 and used the time of the pandemic for mature songwriting before making a name for themselves at over 20 concerts and festival shows nationwide in 22/23.  This album is bursting with enthusiasm. The 8 power metal songs, with some thrash and a lot of speed metal leanings, are instrumentally dominated by two-voiced leads and distinctive solos. Svenja's unique voice gives the whole thing an extra dose of dynamism, as she is able to cover both melodic and rocky tones. „Arson" was recorded and produced in the "Bazement Studio" in Strinz-Trinitatis by Markus Teske, who has also forged albums by Vandenplas, Kambrium, The New Roses, Mob Rules and others.

STORMHUNTER - Best Before: Death - CD
German Heavy Metal! Stormhunter have been making their mark on the German metal scene since 1998 and, after two EPs (Ready For Boarding, 2020, Strangle With Care, 2022), are now releasing their long-awaited fourth longplayer, "Best Before: Death", in 2024. The band continues their tradition of classic "German Heavy Metal", still dispensing with keyboards in their arrangements and instead increasing the proportion of choirs, which give the songs even more of an anthemic character. The new album was recorded and produced at Iguana Studios under the direction of Christoph Brandes, while Timon Kokott has provided the whole thing with artwork that illustrates the loose concept of the content, which revolves around death.  "Best Before: Death" is described by the band as their "most personal album" to date, as it incorporates various experiences from the band's environment and looks at death from different angles, from loss to redemption. In the 11 songs, the band refrains from musical experiments, but still offers one or two surprising approaches while rocking their way through exactly 48 minutes with sophisticated guitar work and a variety of melodies.

DRAIN DOWN - Toxic Society CD
Old School Thrash with HC Attitude! Founded in Freiburg in 2018, the trio now released their second longplayer, "Toxic Society", which, as with their predecessors, should appeal to fans of old school thrash with a punk/hardcore attitude. In the fall of 2019, the guys spent four weeks on tour in Europe supporting The Exploited before their further development was abruptly interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, as is the case with many bands.  At the end of 2022, the follow-up to their 2021 debut was recorded at Iguana Studios under the direction of Christoph Brandes (e.g. Craving, The Spirit, Pessimist) and see the light of day in early 2024. The 10 songs are in the tradition of hardcore punk-influenced thrash metal, with the genretypically themes like social issues and the decline of society.  With a new record and a new label behind them, the Drain Down train will pick up speed again!

SERVANT - Aetas Ascensus - CD
Age of Ascension ! With their impressive debut "Blessed By The Light Of A Thousand Stars" Servant belonged to the Black Metal surprises of the year 2021. Now with "Aetas Ascensus" the successor is ready to confirm the high expectations, which they undoubtedly succeed in doing! With the new 9 songs Servant fulfil their claim to take the next step.  Musically, much of the new material seems more furious and wild. Blast beats are paired with complex harmonic guitars and merge with the authentic vocals to create an emotionally charged atmosphere. Melody and harmony are the cornerstones of another impressive Black Metal work, which lyrically deals with a variety of religious texts, whereby gnosis plays a major role here and also the politics behind. So the album also contains songs about emperors and kings who have fallen prey to madness and have helped to destroy themselves and their empire.   "Aetas Ascensus" is a complex piece of music, bursting with a wealth of details. Those who already enjoyed the Scandinavian Black Metal influenced debut will love the no less majestic, latently symphonic and yet more brute successor!

DEIMOS' DAWN - Anthem Of The Lost - VINYL LP
Marc Grewe goes THRASH METAL!  When Germany's flagship-growler Marc Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease) gets ready to step behind a microphone, you can be sure to be bombarded with pure Death Metal ... until now! Because with Deimos' Dawn the scene veteran stands for the first time in front of a THRASH METAL band of pure and classical coinage. Bands like Kreator, Slayer, Sodom and Sepultura have obviously left deep marks on the band's founders Andy Doé (guitar), Matthias Lange (bass) and Mathias Schmidt (drums), so that the three, who have known each other since early childhood, didn't have to spend a long time looking for ideas when they launched Deimos Dawn in 2017 and soon recruited the perfect frontman in Marc. 12 songs, on which Grewe with the full vocal range of his skills and the most diverse vocal performance of his career puts the black-golden crown of a poison and bile-spewing king of the underworld, are waiting to blow a fresh wind of devastation through your brain.  The band's great joy in playing makes it unmistakably clear that Deimos' Dawn are something special. So special, in fact, that former Sodom guitarist and jack-of-all-trades Andy Brings had to write (nearly) all lyrics and produce Grewe's vocals out of sheer enthusiasm for the concept and songs. Yes, had to!  With "Anthem Of The Lost" Deimos' Dawn undoubtedly write a new, strong chapter in the big book of Thrash Metal!

Mandragora Thuringia - Rex Silvarum - CD
Von Sagen, Schlachten und Trinkgelagen ! Mit Mandragora Thuringia und ihrem zweiten Longplayer „Rex Silvarum“ schickt sich eine der vielversprechendsten deutschen Folk Metal Bands an, die Herzen von Fans mittelalterlicher Klänge im harten Metal Gewandt im Sturm zu erobern. Bereits der Vorgänger „Der Vagabund“ sorgte für einiges Aufsehen und bescherte der Band umfangreiche Präsenz auf Bühnen und Festivals. „Rex Silvarum“ bietet alles, was das Folk Metal Herz begehrt: Harte Gitarrenklänge gepaart mit volkstümlichen Instrumenten erzeugen eine mitreißende Stimmung zwischen brachialen, metallischen Parts und tanzbaren, treibenden Dudelsack- und Akkordeonmelodien. Abgerundet wird das Ganze mit epischen Keyboards, Chören oder Streichern, welche die Emotionen der Lieder tragen und Gänsehaut verbreiten. Das Album enthält 13 abwechslungsreiche Songs, die Geschichten aus alten Tagen erzählen, von Schlachten berichten oder zum Trinken einladen. Setzt euch zu den Thüringern ans Lagerfeuer und lauscht ihren unwiederstehlichen Melodien. Aufgenommen in den Splendid Wave Studios von Dom R.

CASSIUS KING - Dread The Dawn - CD
All Hail to the King!  Dan Lorenzo (ex-Hades, Non Fiction, Patriarchs In Black) ist eine fleischgewordene Riff Maschine, oder wie die Fachpresse ihm oft bescheinigte: Seine Meisterschaft in der Kunst echte, lebensnahe Riffs zu schreiben ist unübertroffen! Mit „Dread To Dawn“ treten Cassius King auf ihrem Zweitlingswerk erneut den Beweis dieser Aussage an.  Auf 11 Songs wälzt sich das Quartett durch schleppende, ergreifende Melodien, umschlungen von den markanten Vocals von Jason McMaster (Watchtower, Dangerous Toys), welche dem Gesamtsound eine authentische Tiefe verleihen und getrieben von den erbarmungslosen Grooves eines Ron Lipnicki (ex-Overkill, Whiplash). Cassius King ist ein vertontes Gefühl, welchem man mit den Oberbegriffen Doom und Stoner eigentlich nicht gerecht werden kann. Mit dem Release von „Dread To Dawn“ beweisen die Herren zudem, dass es sich bei Cassius King um deutlich mehr handelt, als ein einmalig konstruiertes All-Star Projekt. Zählt man Dan Lorenzos gleichnamiges Solo Album aus dem Jahr 2004 mit, ist der Nachfolger des letztjährigen „Field Trip“ bereits der dritte Longplayer in nahezu identischer Besetzung. Wer sich von den vorliegenden Songs in die Tiefe reißen lässt, wird unwillkürlich hoffen, dass es nicht das letzte seiner Art ist.  TRACKLIST 1. Abandon Paradise 2. As I Beginn To Turn 3.

WELCOME TO PLESHIWAR - Apostasy - CD
Doom Death with old school vibes! Welcome To Pleshiwar, which was only founded in 2021, already caused quite a stir in the German metal scene with their EP "Unsolved", which was released in the same year as their formation, and also received a lot of positive feedback from the trade press for their first sign of life. No wonder, because the band consists entirely of proven scene veterans, who were previously active in bands such as Reawacan, Lacrima Christi, Immortalis and others. With "Apostasy" the full length debut of the quartet is now available and already a look at the track lengths between 6 and 7 minutes gives an idea of what you have to deal with musically: Dragging Death Doom, which cannot deny its influences of the genre greats of the 90s, is written large here and enriched with progressive passages to a great listening experience. Welcome To Pleshiwar has succeeded in transporting the vibe of the 90s into the modern era and serving up a contemporary album with "Apostasy", thus building a bridge between their own roots and the modern age. The production (mix & master) by Andy Classsen at Stage One does the rest to make this album a captivating experience.

SARLIC BLISS - Brægn Hæft - CD
Atmospheric, Dark and Doomy The year 2021, in the midst of the Covid pandemic, turns out in retrospect to be a year for promising band formations. Sarlic Bliss also have their origins here. In this case, too, we are dealing with musicians active in the scene for many years, who apparently were looking for a new activity for self-realization. In this case, among others, Daniel Fischer (Midnattsol) and Jochen Turn (Bann) are involved. With "Brægn Hæft" the full length debut of the quintet is now available, which brings it with only 6 songs to a stately length of over 45 minutes, whereby it should be clear that the fellows obviously take the necessary time to let a song unfold. Not surprisingly, the sound is characterized by dark, aggressive-melancholic sounds, melodically underpinned by the interplay of growls and clean vocals. The band itself sees itself somewhere between Doom-/, Post-Black-/ and Death-Metal at home and put in their lyrics deliberately with Old English language elements to reflect the atmosphere of the music even more authentic. The present debut is dark, brute and poignant at the same time. Both the recordings and the production were done by the band themselves. "Brægn Hæft" is not least therefore an album as if from a single mold on which the band has portrayed and realized itself without compromise.

ASTROPHYTE - 2192 - CD
Intense Heavyness! When the musical jack-of-all-trades Rogga Johansson (Furnace, Paganizer) gets ready to launch a new project, you can be sure that you are dealing with the very essence of Swedish death metal. At least instrumentally, the heavy, dragging rhythms and catchy melodies are also the solid foundation of Astrophyte.  And yet, in this case, something is different: With Indii Hofvander (Tristitia), who already contributed a guest appearance to a Johansson project on the Furnace album "Stellarum", "2192" is characterised by a haunting, almost pleading, female voice for large parts of the album - and thus contributes, along with Mike Hubrovcaks growls, not insignificantly to the oppressively heavy overall atmosphere of the album. "2192" is a suffocating album, characterised by the typical trademarks of Nordic death metal of the nineties, which also has a number of finesses in store. The album follows a concept based on the role-playing game of the Mutant Chronicles World, for which bassist Fredrik Petersson is responsible and which paints a dystopian picture of a dark future.

Musically, the quintet, which will also elaborately implement the role-playing game theme in their live shows, has dedicated itself to melodic death metal, although various other and adjacent extreme metal genres also find their influences. With their present Full Lenght debut, Bosparans Fall write the first part of a story designed as a trilogy around the warrior Alrik Immerda, 1019 years after the battle on Bosparans battlements, drawn into the preparations of the ancient rituals that have been going on for almost two decades ... "Götterspiel: Dunkle Zeiten" comes over you like a storm and draws you in with its ingenious narrative strands and arrangements. By the way, parts of the story, such as the character of the protagonist, were designed in close consultation with the DSA community on various internet boards. The musical saga was mixed and mastered by Michael Kraxenberger at Sick Of Sound, and the band itself was responsible for the graphic realisation of the concept.

BATTLESWORD - Towards The Unknown CD
Melodic Old School Death Metal strikes back ! With "Towards The Unknown", the German melodic death metal institution Battlesword returns with new material in the twenty-third year of its existence and proves that they are far from being old hat and certainly not willing to think about retirement. On the contrary - on the new material the concentrated load of experience breaks through in the form of an energetic steamroller that threatens to bury everything in its path. With their distinctive mix of melodic death and Scandinavian old school, the band manages to write songs that have classic potential from the very first riff, seemingly effortlessly even in 2022. "Towards The Unknown" was recorded and produced by Michael "Freio" Haas in April/May at Big Easy Studio in Hennef. For the mastering, the band turned to a master of the genre this time and so none other than Dan Swanö refined the album. In addition to new material, "Towards The Unknown" contains the songs from the "The 13th Black Crusade" maxi, which has been out of print for many years, as a bonus which als also been remastered for this purpose! TRACKLIST 1. Departure 2. The Awakening 3. To Become The Wolf 4. Terra Combusta 5. The Shores Of I 6. Hound Of Hades 7. Backstabber - Bonus Tracks - 8. There Will Be Blood 9. Fire And Storm 10.

VERMOCRACY - Age Of Dysphoria CD
Dark melodic death metal ! Vermocracy from Vienna, founded in 2017, already caused quite a stir in the underground with their self-titled debut, released in 2020. The band has undoubtedly dedicated itself to dark melodic death metal, as a nod to the genre greats of the 90s. Stylistically and in terms of content, the band draws a dystopian picture of the failure and decay of modern society with powerful riffs, earthy grooves and bestial vocals. With "Age Of Dysphoria", the band consistently continues the path they have taken since their foundation and delivers an album that sets new standards in the band's history, both technically and compositionally. Aggressiveness paired with the necessary groove, playful melodies combined with powerful harshness and all that, despite a clear homage to the melodic death metal of the nineties, with a contemporary freshness and great joy of playing characterises the album, which lyrically deals with the desolation and hopelessness of today. Age Of Dysphoria" was recorded, produced and mastered in Norbert Leitner's studio in Vienna, which gives the band a more than powerful sound, which is further enhanced by the artwork by Armin Stocker, who also gives the whole thing a fitting visual framework. Vermocracy will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come! TRACKLIST 01. Intro 02. Necrocracy 03. World Of Wounds 04. The Void's Embrace 05. Opposed Evolution 06. Grace Of Hypnos 07. Perpetual Flood 08. The Pyre 09. In Darkness Let Me Dwell

Dark Tranquillity - Construct CD
Innovative, atmospheric change ... With their tenth studio album "Construct", the then spearhead of Swedish melodic death metal Dark Tranqullity are heaviely struggled. The band suffered from writer's block in the run-up and also disagreed for a long time about how the new album should sound at all. In the end, a quite extraordinary album was created directly in the studio, on which above all many small details, different moods and a sound-based atmosphere were in the foreground. Many die-hard fans, expecting a melodic death metal milestone, were alienated by the more experimental tones of the album and so it quickly fell out of focus among purists. In retrospect it has to be said: unjustified, because it has an emotional depth that perfectly reflects the mood in which the band found themselves in the run-up to the creation process. So "Construct" is ultimately 100% a Dark Tranquillity album that is worthy of being put in perspective and duly considered again in 2022.

Dark Tranquillity - Yesterworlds CD
Innovative Melodic Death Metal art made in Sweden... We go on a journey through time to the primordial soup of Swedish melodic death metal. If Gothenburg is the destination, there is no way around Dark Tranquillity. Together with In Flames, the guys spearheaded a whole movement that sparked a revolution in the following years. Both bands changed vocalists at the beginning of their career among themselves and then conquered the metal and music charts of the world. The first demo recordings presented here, however, do not yet show where the journey will lead. The songs are raw, wild and full of the urge to discover. The songs of the first demos, collected here on "Yesterworlds", represent the short time window in which the band created their very own style. This collection of demos contains additional liner notes by guitarist Niklas Sundin, as well as the artwork for A Moonclad Reflection 7", for which he was also responsible at the time. Ladies and Gentlemen... "We are the outstretched fingers, that seize and hold the wind" ...with this lyric excerpt from "Punish My Heaven" we release you on a musical journey into the past. Track Infos: Track 1-4: „Trail Of Life Decayed“ Demo Track 5-6: „A Moonclad Reflection“ 7“ Track 7-9: Previous unreleased Promo-Tape 1994 Track 10: Original released on the legendary W.A.R.

Dragonbreed - Necrohedron CD
A step back in history and two steps forwards... What lasts a long time becomes one! The history of the melodic death metal flagships Graveworm and Suidakra has always been closely connected. They started out on the same label, toured together and developed deep friendships that have lasted until today. It happened that during the songwriting for the current Suidakra longplayer "Wolfbite" several songs came up that didn't really fit to Suidakra, but with their raw sound, groove and melodies they brought back memories of the old times at the beginning of the nineties and demanded to be released. So Akki and Zachi (the former Suidakra bassist) knocked on the door of some old companions to complete the time travel experiment and were joined by Graveworm singer Stefano Fiori. They were completed by current Suidakra members Sebastian and Ken to unleash this debut album on mankind. So it's no surprise that "Necrohedron" sounds exactly like this: raw, inspired by the spirit of their early years together, paired with the skills and finesse of today! Cover artist Kris Verwimp (Suidakra, Marduk, Immortal, Arch Enemy, among others) was also immediately on fire and is responsible for the cover artwork as well as the lyrics. Fot this he used a concept story that had been lying dormant in his drawer for a long time and fitted Dragonbreed like a glove. The band has the claim not only to be a one-off "project", but also to aspire to the stages of this world with their well thought-out concept. TRACKLIST 01. The Undying 02. Summoning The Arcane 03. The World Beyond 04. Sinister Omen 05. Dawn Of Calamity 06. Offerings From Yonder 07. Curse Of The Forlorn 08. A Reconstruction Of Aeons Obscure

Final Cry - The Ever-Rest CD
Epic Melodic Thrash/Death Metal Highlight! For more than 30 years, FINAL CRY have been a constant part of the German metal scene and now present their sixth longplayer with the mountaineering epic "The Ever-Rest". On it, the band once again succeeds in reinventing themselves without losing sight of their roots. Their sound, still rooted in thrash metal, captivates with merciless riffing, raging drums and a great feeling for melodies and atmosphere and builds a bridge between the classic thrash of the 80s and the dark Scandinavian death to black metal styles of the 90s. The new man on the mic not only gives the band's sound a new touch with his nasty screams and growls, but also fits the album's deadly, frosty scenario like a glove. The overall concept of "The Ever-Rest" is rounded off by a 20-page story booklet, which contains the real-life stories underlying each individual song. For some backing vocals and choirs, which support the epic depth of the theme, Herbie Langhans (AVANTASIA) and Børd Wäsche (EYE SEE BLACK) could also be won. "The Ever-Rest" was produced at Soundlodge Studio by Jörg Uken and is undoubtedly a highlight in the quintet's oeuvre and should delight both old and new fans of the band from Lower Saxony. As a bonus, "Words Unspoken", one of their all-time classics from 1994, has been re-recorded and ported into the new millennium.

Fearancy - Daemonium CD
Don't fear the Austrians! Fearancy was founded in Styria in 2014 and mixed elements of thrash, melodic death, groove and industrial metal on their debut album "Paranoia", which was released in 2016. In the following years, the guys gained a good reputation as a live band with several shows at home and abroad, before they started working on the follow-up album. The result of this work is now available in the form of "Dæmonium", which is much heavier than the quartet's early days. Even if the origins in the thrashmetal like thunderstorm riffing or the groovy mosh parts can still be heard, the songs on "Dæmonium" can also be unhesitatingly united under the term modern melodic death metal. Friends of bone-dry neckbreakers will definitely get their money's worth and especially live, the new songs should ensure a lot of movement in the pit. The 10 songs were recorded at the Romes studio in Hartberg, Austria, while the mix and mastering was done by none other than J-F Dagenais (KATAKLYSM), who put the finishing touches on the whole thing at JFD Studios in Texas. Diego Gedoz de Souza (Hatebreed, Cypress Hill, Heathen, among others) is responsible for the artwork. TRACKLIST 1. Last Disease 2. Rise And Fall 3. Dæmonium 4. All Is Lost 5. Sacrifice 6. Voices 7.

SUIDAKRA - Wolfbite Digipak CD (Release June, 25th)
Suidakra 2.0? 1000 percent Suidakra! After more than 25 years of history and more than 13 studio albums as well as worldwide tours, can a band reinvent itself or even release the unexpected? Well, Suidakra may not reinvent themselves completely in 2021, but on their new album "Wolfbite" they create a mixture of all their past musical work and a fresh breeze, which gives the impression that the band has risen from a fountain of youth. "Wolfbite" is bursting with power, uncompromisingness and joy of playing. The collaboration with Aljoscha Sieg (Eskimo Callboy, Vitja, Gestört aber GeiL), which is certainly untypical for die-hard fans, results in a breathtaking, lively sound, which from the very first note makes any scepticism about whether Suidakra still sound like Suidakra in 2021 evaporate. With the proven concept story from the "Realms Of Odoric" cosmos, lyrically and visually realised by Kris Verwimp, of course, "Suidakra 2.0" presents itself in a form that even old fans probably wouldn't have dreamed of. With "Wolfbite", Suidakra succeed in travelling from the past into the future and surely present one of THE albums of the year 2021. "As a fanboy since the debut, I am of course proud to be able to release the band's most mature work. Check out all the old albums and you will hear 100% Suidakra. But what is Wolfbite then? One thousand percent Suidakra? Album of the year - basta! Nothing beats that." - Markus Roesner / CEO, MDD Records TRACKLIST 01. A Life In Chains 02. The Inner Wolf 03. Darcanian Slave 04.

The Everdawn - Poems - Burning The Past CD
Melodic Death Metal Masterpiece! When it comes to the origins of melodic death metal, names like At The Gates or Dark Tranquillity are probably the benchmark. In 2021, the iconic label "Invasion Records", releasing melodic death metal gems on a conveyor belt, seems to have been forgotten. Bands like Scheitan, Gates Of Ishtar or THE EVERDAWN were the order of the day, even if the quality levels were quite different. The Everdawn, founded in 1993, celebrated the so-called "Gothenburg Death Metal" in its purest form. Their only album, "Poems - Burning The Past", with its playing time of just 35 minutes (plus bonus tracks), has to be described as the "Raining Blood" of this genre. Every riff ignites, every drum beat hits the mark, the songs are crisp and spontaneous, garnished with completely hysterical vocals that cement themselves in the auditory canals as if they had been pounded directly live. After its re-release on Century Media a decade ago, the album was again quickly out of print and crying out to be made available again. Here we go, ladies and gentlemen: The Gothenburg death metal flagship is available again. Be sure to get it now! "The Everdawn have created THE ultimate Gothenburg death metal album with "Poems - Burning The Past" and it belongs to this genre like "Raining Blood" belongs to thrash metal. Must have!"

STRYDEGOR - Isolacracy Digipak CD
Metallic north wind! For 10 years now Strydegor have been providing a steady musical north wind in the metal scene. They mix gusts of melodic death metal with hymnic-acoustic swirls, peppered with accentuated pinches of biting black metal. After the three albums and numerous gigs on European stages so far, the northmans are now preparing to unleash another storm of sound with "Isolacracy" as a testimony to their musical development. Like an Orcan that gets under your skin more incisive and lasting than anything the band has ever made before. The waiting time for the new album was definitely worth it, because "Isolacracy" undoubtedly represents the high point of the quartet's musical work so far and should be a candidate for the title "Melodic Death Metal Album of the Year". The Classical Melodic Metal trademarks, multi-layered vocals, a great feeling for melodies and atmosphere, as well as the mature songwriting are definitely a demand for admission into higher spheres of Metal Olymp! The present 11 songs were recorded between february 2018 and august 2020 in the Hell-Sounds Studio in Neu Brenz, refined by Oliver Carell/Blastbeat Productions (Ophis, Fäulnis, Heretoir, among others) and finally mastered by Lasse Lammert in the LSD Studio Lübeck (Alestorm, Gloryhammer) to a stunning neckbreaker. The cover artwork, which was created by Patrick Wittstock from Azrael Design, completes the harmonious overall picture of the almost 50 minute longplayer. TRACKLIST 1. Beware the Beast Man 2.

SUIDAKRA - Lupine Essence Remaster CD
The legendary Debut - rereleased and remastered! 23 years have passed since the release of the debut album "Lupine Essence", which was to be the starting point of a career as adventurous as it was unique. As schoolboys, the guys delivered newspapers to be able to realise the project. What at that time was an enormous effort, both humanly and financially, was to give birth for the first time a German band which mixing folk with black metal. With 2000 units, the album sold out quickly and was only re-released once with the first edition of the digipak of "Auld Lang Syne". Since 1998 it is considered a completely lost diamond in the band's discography. Time to finally dig it up again, remastered by Arkadius himself, with new artwork (very similar to the original), bonus tracks and for the first time available on vinyl. Suidakra, that's over 25 years of band history, tours all over the world, placements at the biggest festivals AND still good friends who enjoy making music together.

ACT OF CREATION - The Uncertain Light CD
Powerful and merciless! If you include the predecessor band E 605, Act Of Creation are almost one of the veterans of the German death metal scene since the mid-nineties.
