WESTFIELD MASSACRE – Glory to the Metal Gods that Westfield Massacre formed as a band out in the grand state of California. Does their debut/self-titled album kick Metal ass? Yes. Has Westfield Massacre become one of my most favorite of Metal bands on planet Earth? Yes. Is there that one song from Westfield Massacre that psyches-me-out of complete control? Yes and the song is Time To Rise.

Stating the prior is an understatement; this song lyrically is my inspiration and calling card for 2017. One of my most cherished of songs during my lifetime; across all genres of music. You heard that right. Musically, Time To Rise is beyond incredible for my Metal soul. Whoa. Tommy Vext sings this song with such sincere emotion, it brings tears to my eyes and makes me wanna conquer every dumb-ass problem that gets in my way. Listen to and watch the official music video of Time To Rise, below! I hope you dig it as much as I do. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Sacrifice will be available as a  limited edition vinyl LP  (500 copies, 100 of which will be ultra-limited Coke-Bottle Green vinyl with patch, exclusively from the Cruz Del Sur Music webstore), limited edition CD (500), and in digital format.

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUI2L5KGYl4&feature=youtu.be

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.

Ukrainian Power Metallers DEFIANT To Release “Time Isn’t Healing” In November

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 3, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Ukrainian Power Metal quintet DEFIANT will release sophomore full-length album Time Isn’t Healing November 25. The album’s title track is streaming at this location or below:

Since its formation in 2008, DEFIANT‘s mission has been to enthrall fans with a brand of power metal that is as muscular as it is melodic. DEFIANT went on to release no less than three EPs and 2012’s full-length debut Masquerade, collectively laying the groundwork for what can only be called its magnum opus: Time Isn’t Healing. The crunching riffs and soaring leads of guitarist Andrey Turkovsky blend seamlessly with the epic, often breathtaking keyboard work of Victoria Terzieva, while Stanislav Proshkin‘s gritty yet tuneful vocals offer a captivating stamp of distinction. The clanging bass lines of Oleg Yakovlev and airtight drumming of Eugeniy Smolin form a robust rhythmic foundation.

defiant-promo-band-pic-2016-mo999ilmfso33773

It’s the quality and consistency of the songwriting that is perhaps most impressive about the new album. Whether the up-tempo Power Metal pummel of “Milestones of Time” or the mid-tempo elegance of “According to the Acts,” Time Isn’t Healing sinks the hooks in deep and keeps the listener in a state of rapt attention from beginning to end.

Fans of HELLOWEEN, RAGE and similar icons of the genre are strongly encouraged to give this one a spin.

Track Listing:

1. Strom (Intro)
2. Milestones in Time
3. The Jericho
4. Funeral Feast
5. Time Isn’t Healing
6. According to the Acts
7. The Dream
8. Don’t Trust the Words
9. The Truth and the Lie
10. The Grief
11. Soul is Burning
12. The Eagle
