About Ayin Aleph:

Hollywood based, but European raised, Ayin is at the confluence of classical music and heavy rock, combining Baroque influences (massive choirs) and romanticism (rhythmic and lead acoustic piano). With an extravagant personality, massive guitars, sophisticated bass lines, powerful back beats, philharmonic accompaniment and magnificent compositions, a new dawn of rock has broken.

Ayin is a consummate performer; classically trained and renowned concert pianist; operatic vocalist; provocateur, poet, model and fashion designer Ayin Aleph is a ready-made brand. Combining Baroque style and composition with the driving force of modern band format, Ayin has created her own genre of music that is passionate and inspired.

Thought provoking lyrics, infectious melodies, blazing rhythmic passages and high fashion coalesce in Ayin Aleph, rendering any preconceived notions of what makes a Pop, Rock or Metal star, pass. Ayin speaks directly to the senses with timeless, contemporary and cutting edge sensibilities.

Ayin has 2 albums and 6 music videos to her credit, and has performed extensively in Russia, the United States and throughout Europe.

Metal Blade lablemates BATTLECROSS and WOVENWAR will kick off their North American Fury Tour tonight supporting Soilwork and Unearth. The trek will coil its way through over two dozen venues, coming to a close on November 16th in Toronto, Ontario. Additional support will be provided by Darkness Divided.

Following the journey, BATTLECROSS will close 2016 with a three-week headlining run: the third installment of the Winter Warriors Tour. This year, support will be provided by Metal Blade labelmates Allegaeon and Necromancing The Stone. In conjunction with the Veterans Ticket Foundation, the Winter Warriors Tour will once again offer free admission to members of the US Armed Forces and the band will donate a portion of their proceeds to local veterans’ organizations in each city.

Veterans are invited to register for free tickets at BATTLECROSS will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise To Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013’s War Of Will entered the charts at #130). To preview and purchase Rise To Power, visit:

On October 21st, WOVENWAR will release their sophomore album, Honor Is Dead. More aggressive and fluid than its self-titled predecessor, Honor Is Dead was written with contributions from all members, while the music for Wovenwar was mostly written before vocalist Shane Blay joined the band. The results speak for themselves, capturing a group that sounds truly unified, and hungry.

Expanding upon the ruthlessly catchy melodies and hooks of their debut and driven by darker lyrical themes, Honor Is Dead makes for a listening experience with true depth, and a broad emotional range. To hear latest single, “World On Fire,” visit at THIS LOCATION where a drum play through for the track can be viewed, alongside an exclusive interview with drummer Jordan Mancino.

HAMMER KING – Makes Official Video Offering To Heavy Metal Gods

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 11, 2016 by Metal Odyssey


German Power Metal Quartet HAMMER KING have released an official video for the title track from forthcoming album King is Rising. The video was shot at  the PFAFF-Areal-Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH in Kaiserslautern by JWKM (Jürgen Walzer Kreative Medien). Go forth and get your Heavy Metal groove on at the link below.

Cruz Del Sur Music will release HAMMER KING‘s sophomore album King is Rising on November 11.

Recorded at Powerwolf‘s Studio Greywolf, King is Rising is once again packed with the truest Heavy Metal in this and all possible other worlds. It is Heavy Metal in the tradition of IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST, crossed with the German Power Metal of HAMMER KING‘s peers.

King is Rising contains 12 Metal anthems literally made for live performances with a nod towards faster paced songs compared to debut album Kingdom Of The Hammer King.

Thematically, the second chapter of HAMMER KING‘s saga pertains to war and revolt, while the King’s battle stories drastically bespeak today’s global crises.  For the album’s artwork the band decided to again partner with brilliant German artist Timo Würz, and the result speaks for itself. Timo is the kind of artist who guarantees quality in every aspect of his job!


King Is Rising will be available on Compact Disc (with one bonus track), Vinyl and Digital formats. The album’s release party will be held on November 12 at Cruz Del Sur Music own’s Burn This Town Festival in Rome. Also appearing will be Sacred Steel, Rosae Crucis, Battle Ram andGraal.

HAMMER KING consists of former ROSS THE BOSS vocalist Titan Fox, former SALTATIO MORTIS’ drummer Dolph A. Macallan rounded out by K.K. Basement on bass and Gino Wilde on guitars.
