Lonewolf - promo band collage - 2014 - #7707

From Massacre Records:

The history of LONEWOLF, hailing from Grenoble (France), began back in 1992. They played True Heavy Metal since the very beginning and soon released several demo tapes as well as a 7” and recorded even an album, which unfortunately never got released and is referred to as “the lost album”. Following a bad experience with a French label, LONEWOLF split up in 1996.

They came back in 2000, along with the demo “March Into The Arena”, which was re-released as the band’s debut album via Goi Music in 2001.

The second album “Unholy Paradise” followed two years later. “Made In Hell” was released in 2008 via Eat Metal, followed by “The Dark Crusade” in 2009 (via Kathargo Records/Killer Metal Records). The band’s latest albums are “Army Of The Damned” (2012, Napalm Records) and “The Fourth And Final Horseman” (2013, Napalm Records).

LONEWOLF were the first French band ever to play in Greece and were opening act for Grave Digger at their first gig in France. During the past decade, LONEWOLF went on headliner EU tour w/ Dragonsfire and Iron Fate in 2011 and were part of the “Wolfsnächte Tour” 2012, along with Powerwolf, Stormwarrior and Mystic Prophecy. They also played at festivals such as the Up The Hammers (GR), Headbangers Open Air (GER), Hard Rock Session (FR), Beastival (DE) or the Metalfest Open Airs (DE and AT).

LONEWOLF’s new album “Cult Of Steel” will be released in autumn 2014 via Massacre Records!

GOD’S ARMY A.D. – Self-Titled Debut Album Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

GOD’S ARMY A.D. – On May 23rd, the self-titled debut album from God’s Army A.D. was released via Germany’s (great) Massacre Records. With no  religious ties to their music, God’s Army A.D. are a seasoned group of musicians that have let the world know they can play an incredible blend of Melodic, Power and Traditional Metal. That’s what my ears and Metal senses have told me, anyways. Whoa.

If you’re hankering for screaming duo guitars, articulate and soaring vocals, goose-bump inducing drumming with adrenaline fueled bass thumping, this debut from God’s Army A.D. is for you! God’s Army A.D. plays a sound that is bullseye perfect for the BIG venues, with their wide-open feel and vibes on this album. As an unexpected touch, which I really dig, God’s Army A.D. adds a whoa-o chorus, on Waiting For The Miracle. Very cool.

John A.B.C. Smith (Scanner, Gallow’s Pole, Hallowed, At Vance) on vocals is in the same class with Mark Boals, Doogie White, Göran Edman and Blaze Bayley; just a terrific singer he is. Drummer Mark Cross (Kingdom Come, Helloween, Firewind) has an envious resume as well and trust my Metal word: Mark Cross brings it on this album!

Watch and listen to the God’s Must Be Crazy music video, below! Whoa!

There is a (delicious) old school quality of Metal swirling about this album, with Coming Back To Life and Running Around In Circles igniting my Metal memories to easier Metal days. Yes, the Metal relevance is saturated within this album too, with more hooks, riffs and fired-up fret work to make any Heavy Metal loyalist dizzy with Metal glee!

Is this an album that should be  written on your Metal must list for 2014? Hell yes it is! With NO artificial sweeteners, NO ballads or fillers, God’s Army A.D. has made this middle-aged Metal knucklehead into an instant fan. This album simply makes me feel damn good. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing: The World That Never Was, City Lights, Gods Must Be Crazy, Waiting For The Miracle, Hear You Scream, Coming Back To Life, Running Around In Circles, God’s Army

From Massacre Records:

We’re delighted to announce the signing of REAPER from Germany!

The journey of REAPER began back in 1984 when Peter “Onkel Eff” Fickert (drums), Andreas Maus (guitar), Robert Kölling (guitar) und Matthias “Mäfju” Kraft (bass) decided to make music together. Within the first months, Robert Kölling was replaced by Daniel Zimmermann and singer Thomas Bennecke joined the band’s ranks.

Soon after the band’s formation, the band started to release first demos as well as the debut album “Beyond All Time” in 1990 via Bellaphon. The studio albums “The Years Within” (1992 via Mausoleum) and “Gardens Of Seth” (2009 via STF Records) followed, as well as other demos and CD Compilations.

The band’s line-up changed in the following years, currently featuring Daniel Zimmermann (lead vocals, guitar), Matthias Kraft (bass, backing vocals), Benni Lodewig (guitar, backing vocals) and Jan Breede (drums).

In the past 30 years, REAPER played a lot of gigs and were part of festivals such as the Ragnarock Open Air, Power Of Metal Festival, Masters Of Cassel and Swordbrothers Festival.

REAPER’s upcoming 4th full-length album “An Atheist Monument” is set to be released in late July via Massacre Records!

Massacre Records Announces The Signing Of GOD’S ARMY A.D.!

GODS ARMY A.D.

John A.B.C. Smith – Vocals, Lead/Rhythm Guitars, Bass, Keys

Don Amiro – Lead/Rhythm Guitars, Vocals

Ian O’Sullivan – Lead/Rhythm Guitars, Vocals

Mark Cross – Drums

___________________________________

From Massacre Records:

Here’s an introduction to the band:

Former Gallow’s Pole singer and At Vance/Scanner bassist John A.B.C. Smith formed GOD’S ARMY A.D. in 2004 – back then under the name God’s Army. The band’s name was recently changed to GOD’S ARMY A.D. due to legal reasons.

Two of his long-time friends and both guitarists, Ian O’Sullivan and Don Amiro, soon joined forces with him and they started writing their first songs in late 2004. In May 2005, John met drummer Mark Cross and their musical interests and combined ideas were the final push for GOD’S ARMY A.D.

In 2006 GOD’S ARMY A.D. played some very successful concerts indeed, not only supporting acts like Paul Di’Anno and Mystic Prophecy, but also selling out their own shows. The band quickly won the hearts of metalheads, building up a true fan base – not only in Germany – over a very short period of time. In 2007, whilst recording their first record, the unexpected happened: Mark Cross was offered to play for the band Firewind and he took it.

The exit of Mark from the band didn’t mean the end of it but another twist of fate: Lead singer John A.B.C. Smith had a severe car accident. This in turn threw him out of the game for a while and only in 2012 he celebrated his “coming back to life”.

Without knowing where the path would lead, John A.B.C. Smith re-recorded all of the old GOD’S ARMY A.D. songs again as some kind of art therapy and they took on a new form. It made him realize that now was the right time: GODS ARMY A.D. is back!

You can already watch the video clip for the new song “Gods Must Be Crazy”, directed by Eddie Van Dahl, below:

The self-titled debut album by GOD’s ARMY A.D. is set to be released on May 23, 2014 via Massacre Records!
