Product information "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!

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.

The present album was recorded between November/December 2018 again in the Becker Studio Marburg/Gießen and mastered by Andre Skopko and is strongly recommended to all fans of old school and classical Death Metal!

Across The Burning Sky - The End Is Near CD
Melodic Death Metal Metal Melodic Death Metal as Melodic Death Metal can be, for all fans of Gates Of Ishtar, Defleshed, God Dethroned, early In Flames, early Dark Tranquillity, Night In Gales... These are the words that describe Across The Burning Sky best. The Nordic Death Metallers have been in the business for around 20 years, being active in several bands and projects. Maybe you know them. Maybe not. They mention any names, because it’s not about names and people, it’s about the music! With „The End Is Near“ they provide an album where you will find melodies, melodies, melodies and Death Metal. Fast. Slow. On this album the band has captured the feeling of the beginning of this genre in the Nineties. A rough and intense production meets the rockin' charm of a live recording. Without claiming to be flawless, but always kicking asses! For the mastering they worked together with "Pluto" at MegaWimpSound which is also known for his work for Primordial, Necrophobic, War From A Harlots Mouth, Aeternus, Blood Red Throne and other.

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. After the split of E605 guitarist Carsten Schluch didn't hesitate to start a new beginning with Act Of Creation. With "The Uncertain Light" in 2020 the fourth longplayer under this name is now available. The four guys around female singer Jess prove that they are serious about it and serve us on 10 songs an energetic mixture of merciless thrash and emotional Melodic Death Metal, with which the band could gain a loyal live audience in the last years.

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.

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.

BOSPARANS FALL - Götterspiel: Dunkle Zeiten - CD
Role Play Melodic Death Metal! Bosparans Fall have been on the metal scene for several years under different names and in other constellations, but only reformed as an RPG metal project in 2022. Conceptually, the band moves in Aventuria, a fantasy world from the German-language pen & paper role-playing game "Das Schwarze Auge". 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.

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.

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

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.

Gates Of Ishtar - At Dusk And Forever - CD
When talking about Swedish melodic death metal of the nineties, names like Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates and In Flames quickly come up. With GATES OF ISHTAR, a band is slightly forgotten that musically had no less impact on the genre and is one of the influences of numerous bands that saw the light of day after them. After the 1996 debut "A Bloodred Path", two absolute milestones of the genre were released with "The Dawn of Flames" and "At Dusk and Forever", which unfortunately remained the last releases of the Swedes. The first edition was lost at the end of the nineties due to the bankruptcy of the then label Invasion Records. In 2017, a remastered reissue was released, which is now either out of print or traded at high lover and/or import prices. So it's time for a re-release of these two rough diamonds at a time when melodic death metal of the nineties is once again enjoying increasing popularity!

Secret heroes of melodic death metal … Wenn man über schwedischen Melodic Death Metal der Neunziger spricht, fallen schnell Namen wie Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates und In Flames. Mit GATES OF ISHTAR wird dabei schnell eine Band vergessen, die musikalisch nicht weniger Einfluß auf das Genre hatte und zu den Einflüssen zahlreicher Bands gehört, die nach ihnen das Licht der Welt erblickten. Nach dem 1996er Debut „A Bloodred Path“ erschienen mit „The Dawn of Flames“ und „At Dusk and Forever“ zwei absolute Meilensteine des Genres, welche leider auch die letzten Veröffentlichung der Schweden blieben. Die Erstauflage ging Ende der Neunziger durch den Konkurs des damaligen Labels Invasion Records unter im Jahr 2017 erschien eine remasterte Neuauflage, die jedoch mittlerweile erneut entweder vergriffen ist, oder zu hohen Liebhaber und/oder Importpreisen gehandelt wird. Zeit also für ein ReRelease dieser zwei Rohdiamanten zu einer Zeit in der sich der Melodische Death Metal der Neunziger erneut einer steigenden Beleibtheit erfreut! 1.

IN SANITY - Welcome To The Show CD
Welcome To Insanity! At In Sanity, which was founded in 2011, sanity and insanity are not only close together, they are virtually on the same line. Once founded with the goal of continuing up a bit of the good old Melodic Death Metal times of the late nineties, the band has since then taken a path that has now reached a new dimension in 2019. Multivoice guitars, covered with steel and styled with a sophisticated songwriting, after two albums released on their own - the band now delivers their masterpiece "Welcome To The Show" . The sextet does not only set acoustic accents, but also tells a story visually, which is not only found on photos and in the artwork, but is also told in their extravagant live shows, which thus amount to an insane Extreme Melodic Metal performance. "Welcome To The Show" was recorded and produced in the Greenman Studios by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann (Orden Ogan, Rhapsody, Alamanac), which not only promises a superb sound, but also cements the demands of the band, which seems to know only one way: always forward and directly "in your face". With this in mind: Let the games begin!

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.

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 - Cimbric Yarns Digipak CD
After 24 years of band history and 12 studio albums SUIDAKRA has become a flagship in the Celtic-Metalscene. During this time they toured around the globe, played any number of shows, mastermind Arkadius Antonik even spent a week on behalf of the German Goethe Institute to support regional musical projects in India and SUIDAKRA has been the first metal band ever that performed six shows there. Now, on 16th November 2018 they will release their thirteenth album, "Cimbric Yarns", that adopts a much calmer tone. Instead of their characteristic bombastic melodic death metal, the musicians impress with an acoustic, ambient masterpiece that takes the audience into a mystical land far before time. Based on a fantasy world which was created during the artwork/soundtrack collaboration between the painter Kris Verwimp and Antonik on "Realms Of Odoric", the belgian artist explains: "Continuing the “Realms of Odoric” saga, “Cimbric Yarns” harks back to where it all began. Thousands of years before Odoric’s time, there existed an advanced civilisation that perished in a great cosmic cataclysm. “Cimbric Yarns” is an attempt at recreating its mythology, inspired by ancient Celtic texts and megalithic sites from all over the world. It weaves a fine thread between history and fantasy, chronicling the fate of its main characters Cruàc, Arma and Aenea in 10 compelling acoustic songs.” Needless to say the overall visual concept and the epic artwork of the album was also done by Verwimp. Among others Mathias Zimmer (Perzonal War) – vocals, Sascha Aßbach (Fall Of Carthage) - vocals, Tina Stabel - vocals, Shir-Ran Yinon (New Model Army) -viola, violin and Catalina Popa – flute appears as guest musicians.

Lays From Afar running time: 50:51 min After 25 years and 12 studio albums SuidAkrA undoubtedly belong to the spearhead of the German metal scene. The Celtic-mythological concept of the band is inseparably connected with the Belgian artist and illustrator Kris Verwimp, who is also the creative head behind the lyrical orientation. After countless tours around the globe, the band was the first metal band ever to perform on their third India tour in 6 different Indian cities in 2014. On the occasion of their 25th anniversary, the band moved to the Gernhart Studio in summer 2019 to record a proper anniversary work with their best classics under the wing of Martin Buchwalter. All recorded Songs were chosen by fans within a Kickstarter project before. As a bonus, former member Marcel Schoenen could be engaged to do his vocal lines, so the classic SuidAkrA-feeling of those old songs sound in a fresh and polished way.
