Outshine - Prelude To Descent - promo cover pic!

OUTSHINE – After 6 appreciated US Tours and the last one in April 2013, with +100 gigs in Scandinavia and the US, airtime in Swedish Radio and various endorsements deals OUTSHINE now release their new album Prelude To Descent with new singer Micke Holm. The album will be out June 7th through Outshine’s own label Dead Tree Music and Soundpollution Distribution in Sweden, Europe and USA.

The addition of a new singer, that has a darker and heavier approach to the OUTSHINE songs and vibe, has taken the band to the next level and the essence of the band and album is really finally coming out. A video for the song “I Was Nothing” can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/theoutshine

The new album was recorded by Svein Jensen at Grand Recordings (M.A.N, Transport League, Hide The Knives, Sister Sin, Troublemakers, Outshine), produced by Jimmy Norberg and Svein Jensen and mastered by Göran Finnberg (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames).

Outshine - band pic - promo banner - 2013 - new album

“OUTSHINE, with a melancholic and dark approach to their music, is heading in a heavier direction, more straight up and with bulldozer-heavy sound. The band has influences from the gothic metal to melodic rock always with a twist. OUTSHINE´s sound has been recognized as unique and with a “live” feeling. Beautiful and honest, dark and evil, tough and hard…OUTSHINE “Prelude To Descent”.

To support the album release the band will go on their 6th US tour and also hit the road for a number of concerts in Sweden.

SCHWARZER ENGEL – Signs With Massacre Records

Posted in dark metal, gothic metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on March 15, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

SCHWARZER ENGEL - logo!

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.

Band leader Dave Jason about the signing with Massacre Records:

“I’m happy to announce that SCHWARZER ENGEL has teamed up with Massacre Records! The label has proven that it’s doing a great job in supporting their artists.

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!

Coronatus - Best Of 2007-2011 - promo cover pic!

Newly released on December 21st, as a digital only releaseCORONATUS (Best Of 2007 – 2011) showcases premier songs of Gothic & Symphonic styles from the back catalog of this terrific German band. The female vocalist duo of Lady Ada Flechtner (Rock/Metal Soprano) and Mareike Makosch (Rock Voice) are unlike anything you’ve heard before; an engaging listen that can cause your jaw to drop. With admirable attention to song structure details and praise-worthy musicianship, CORONATUS is a Metal band I highly recommend!
