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!

God's Army - promo cover pic - 2014

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

REAPER – Photo credit: Leif Lohne

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.!

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on May 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Gods Army A.D. - promo band pic - 2014 - #44009

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!

Vanish - promo band pic - 2014 - #00887

From Massacre Records:

Welcome to the Massacre Records family, VANISH!

Traditional metal meets modern synth sounds and progressive elements – with this combination VANISH prove that classic elements and modern metal elements can co-exist. The band’s compact songs with heavy riffs, strong melodies and bombastic parts create a unique and new sound.

Their songs deal with ever-present themes like mortality, anxiety or social problems. VANISH is a band that can look back on more than 14 years of live, studio and songwriting experience and that puts a lot of passion, effort and creativity into their music.

The band’s current line-up, consisting of Bastian Rose (vocals, keyboard), Tommy Rösch (guitar), Philipp Schönle (guitar), Daniele Dei Giudici (bass) and Ralf Nopper (drums), exists since more than a decade.

VANISH want to prove that innovative metal can inspire everyone – not only metal fans. In the past few years, VANISH rocked numerous clubs and festivals and supported bands such as Queensryche, Brainstorm, Mystic Prophecy, Axxis, Freedom Call and Kissin’ Dynamite.

VANISH’s upcoming album “Come To Wither” is set to be released in autumn 2014 via Massacre Records!

Oliver stated:

“Due to personal reasons, I can’t fulfill the role as bassist of Gloryful anymore. It was a great time and I will always cherish the memories of great shows and the best company anyone could imagine. This has been the best band I ever played in and I’m glad that a good replacement could be found, otherwise I wouldn’t have left.”

Daniel Perl - bassist - Gloryful - publicity photo - 2014 - #59600

Daniel Perl about his new role as GLORYFUL’s bassist:

“Working his artilleristic instrument, he had flattened the ground – besides his band members – for the infantristic sound to take over. As this good man has taken a back seat, it was my call to enter the band. With great pleasure and honor I’m taking the task that has been Oliver’s since the start of Gloryful. Locked and loaded and ready to rumble in the name of Heavy Metal, let the war begin!”

GLORYFUL’s new album “Ocean Blade” will be released on April 25, 2014 via Massacre Records!

CRYSTAL EYES – Signs With Massacre Records

Crystal Eyes - promo band banner pic - 2014 - #4718

From Massacre Records:

We’re happy to announce the signing of Sweden’s Heavy Metal quartet CRYSTAL EYES!

The story of CRYSTAL EYES began back in 1992, when Mikael Dahl and Niclas Karlsson formed the band to keep the legacy of Heavy Metal set in the 80’s by bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden or Black Sabbath.
During the mid 90’s, the band built a strong underground reputation with the release of 4 demo tapes.

The debut album “World Of Black And Silver” was released in 1999, followed by “In Silence They March” in 2000 both via CLM. Both albums received great reviews.

“Vengeance Descending” hit the stores in 2003, released on Heavy Fidelity, and led to CRYSTAL EYES playing at the Sweden Rock Festival in the same year. Mikael handed over the microphone to Daniel Heiman, who was featured as new vocalist on the band’s 4th album “Confessions Of The Maker” (2005).

Crystal Eyes - promo band pic - 2013 - #30070

Also in 2005, CRYSTAL EYES returned to Sweden Rock as opening act. This gig was the only one with Daniel on vocals, who was then replaced by Søren Nico Adamsen in late 2005.

The two following albums “Dead City Dreaming” (2006) and “Chained” (2008) were both mixed by Fredrik Nordström, with whom the band once again worked on the upcoming album.

Søren Nico Adamsen left the band in 2009 and Mikael took over the microphone again.

CRYSTAL EYES celebrated the band’s 20th anniversary in 2012 with special gigs including former band members and songs from every record. In the past decades, CRYSTAL EYES also supported bands like Blind Guardian, Yngwie Malmsteen and Candlemass.

CRYSTAL EYES’ new album “Killer” is set to be released later this year via Massacre Records!

Circle Of Silence - The Rise Of Resistance - promo cover pic!

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

Looking back on 2013, there were many, many great Metal albums released; Metal albums that should always be hailed here, on Metal Odyssey. One such album is The Rise Of Resistance and the Power Metal brilliance of Heilbronn, Germany’s Circle Of Silence. This is a Power Metal album that MUST be heard, to understand it’s true potent thunder!

Yes, once again, we have album cover artwork that matches the Metal heard within like a Metal glove! Nick on vocals comes across as the ever confident and eloquent Metal frontman, as he exhibits an attitude and grandiose vibe of pure might, with every note. The duo guitar fretwork of Tobias and Chris is a sensation to take in; with the rhythm section of Björn (bass) and Pit (drums) only exemplifies why Circle Of Silence is a Power Metal force to adhere to.

Released via Abstatt, Germany’s Massacre Records, The Rise Of Resistance is just one of many numerous Metal gems that this legendary record label offered in 2013. Any rabid Power Metal and/or True Metal fan’s album collection is amiss without this recent Circle Of Silence offering. Circle Of Silence = Metal. Period. What makes any album memorable are the songs and Circle Of Silence surely has them on The Rise Of Resistance. Metal be thy name. – Stone

The Rise Of Resistance – Track Listing:

01       Blood of Enemies

02.       Eyes of Anarchy

03.       Nothing Shall Remain

04.       One Moment of Hate

05.       An Oncoming Storm

06.       Mind Conspiracy

07.       In the Absence of Your God

08.       We Rise

09.       The Final Chapter

10.       Slaves to the Greed Machine

11.       Reborn from Darkness

12.       The Architect of Immortality

CIRCLE OF CHAOS started out as a project of the band’s guitarist HG Hogström in 2008. As the project developed, he began searching for musicians to complete the band. The original line-up then included HG Hogström (guitars), Thomas Jonsson (bass), Staffan Lundholm (drums), Antonio da Silva (vocals) and Allan Lundholm (guitars).

Dan Swanö mastered CIRCLE OF CHAOS’ debut album Black Oblivion that was released in 2010. It was well received worldwide and the band played their first live shows in Sweden.

In 2011, the band played their first shows abroad, in Germany and Poland, and shared stages with bands like Gun Barrel, Embodying The End and Dawn Of Destiny. At Germany’s Bremer Metal Festival in November 2011, Julian “Julle” Loaiza was introduced as new vocalist.

During spring 2012, CIRCLE OF CHAOS released the 5-track album “Twoheaded Serpent”, which was mixed and mastered by King Diamond’s Mike Wead. They went out on a headliner tour in Poland and the Czech Republic and also entered the Emergenza Festival and went all the way to the Scandinavian finals!

CIRCLE OF CHAOS have the ambition to always deliver energetic and captivating live shows. Anders “Atte” Strokirk joined the band as new guitarist in January 2013.

The natural adjustments in the line-up have strengthened and shaped a crew ready to go “all in” and let you know what “Swedish Metal Chaos” is all about!

The band is currently working hard on their upcoming album “Crossing The Line” – with Germán Echiburu on drums – which is set to be released later this year via Massacre Records!

From Massacre Records:

We’re happy to announce the signing of Germany’s Dark Metal band SCHWARZER ENGEL!

The band was formed in 2007 by the vocalist and guitarist Dave Jason. The live line-up includes Jens Lindmaier (guitar), Stefan Grießhammer (guitar), Bert Oeler (bass) and Marcel Woitowicz (drums).

In 2010 they signed with Trisol Music Group and released their debut album “Apokalypse”.

In late 2010 SCHWARZER ENGEL toured with Ahab and The Vision Bleak through Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. The tour was accompanied by the release of the band’s EP “Geister und Dämonen”.

The second album “Träume Einer Nacht” followed in April 2011.

SCHWARZER ENGEL played at several festivals in 2011 and 2012, such as the Wave-Gotik-Treffen, Hexentanz Festival, Castle Storm Festival and Dark Storm Festival.

SCHWARZER ENGEL’s music can be described as modern dark metal with heavy guitar riffs, double bass attacks, catchy melodies and furious, deep vocals – all topped with orchestral arrangements.

The band’s poetic German lyrics are about human failures, impressions of nature, myths and the cruel reality of today’s world.

Massacre Records is the perfect partner for the release of SCHWARZER ENGEL’s upcoming album as well as the “Schwarze Sonne EP”, which will be the album’s harbringer.”

SCHWARZER ENGEL’s “Schwarze Sonne EP” will be released in late May via Massacre Records, followed by the worldwide release of the band’s third album “In Brennenden Himmeln” in late July!
