From AFM Records:

Guitarist Ross the Boss’ stature in the history of hard rock and heavy metal has been well-solidified for decades by this point – with a resume including some of the most influential and hardest-hitting bands of all-time, particularly both the Dictators and Manowar. And he continues to rock – as a member of the group DeathDealer, and also, as the leader of his own solo outfit, which has issued such stellar releases as ‘Hailstorm,’ ‘New Metal Leader’ and his latest offering, ‘By Blood Sworn’.

Joined by Marc Lopes on vocals and keys, Mike LePond on bass, and Lance Barnewold on drums for the sessions (Steve Bolognese will beat the skins on the album’s tour), ‘By Blood Sworn’ was produced by Dean Rispler, and will be released April 20th in Europe, via AFM Records.

“The main thing is that my band all live nearby me instead of in Germany,” explains Ross. “So, we were able to really work the tunes up. Mike LePond and I started going thru riffs and tunes in July, worked up the tunes, and started forming them. It was a very satisfying process.”

And as evidenced by such standout tracks as title track, “Among the Bones,” “Devil’s Day,” and a re-do of Manowar’s “Hail and Kill,” ‘By Blood Sworn’ is certainly as hard-hitting and heavy as Ross’ previous classics. “Actually, I know what direction the songwriting should go, and we go. As for my guitar playing, whatever the song needs, the songs get! The record is more old school, but with a fresh attack – the songs are not repetitive, and this record is also not a ‘drum machine recording’ like most these days.” Also featured is extremely eye-catching album cover artwork. “Marc and I had this concept for the cover art by Stan W. Decker. It was a knight kneeling after battle – holding his mighty sword and my eagle behind him.”

IMPERATIVE MUSIC AGENCY proudly announces a special agreement as Official Management of the Canadian Heavy Metal Band WEST OF HELL.

WEST OF HELL has recorded their new album at the ARMOURY STUDIOS (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, NICKELBACK, KISS, STONE SOUR, AC/DC) in Vancouver Canada; they are a focused juggernaut redefining the genre.

Musically, their new songs feature unique time signatures and unconventional arrangements leaning toward the epic, each and every note, guitar shred, wail, lyrical phrase and crushing thunder from the rhythm section is delivered with technical prowess, passion and polish. In the tradition of British invasion Metal from days past, some songs continue on for longer than 7 minutes, holding the listener in its grasp from beginning to end.

WEST OF HELL seamlessly incorporates elements of Thrash, Death, Tech melodic, aggressive, progressive, and timeless classic Heavy Metal. Blackened themes addressing the human condition dominate the lyrical content. WEST OF HELL’s new album unifies the genre!

WEST OF HELL will be presented on the new Imperative Music Compilation alongside Death, Cradle of Filth, Destruction, Hammerfall, etc.

More details about New Album, New Video Clips and Tour soon.

Keep an open eye to see WEST OF HELL in your country.
