Bands' News We are happy to announce, that the German Speed / Heavy Metal force STORMWARRIOR joined the DRAGONIGHT AGENCY! STORMWARRIOR are known worldwide for their unique style combining True Heavy Metal anthems with the concept of Nordic mythology. Hailing from Northern Germany and greatly inspired by the 80's metal scene, especially the Hamburg Metal godfathers like Helloween and Running Wild, the band was founded by Lars Ramcke. After releasing 2
demo tapes and playing dozens of live shows, Stormwarrior finally got the attention of one of their all time idols Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray/ex-Helloween) and recorded their selftitled debut album with him in Hamburg based Hansen Studios. The album hit the stores in July 2002 and praise from all corners
of the globe has been streaming in since then. Successful festival appearances at the Wacken Open (Ger), Gates Of Metal & Motala Metal Festival (Swe), a tour with Iron Savior and the EP "Heavy Metal Fire" followed. End of 2003 STORMWARRIOR entered Hansen Studios again to record the strongly
awaited second album "Northern Rage" which was released in June 2004 and proved once more that Stormwarrior are on the right path to reach the level of the bands that had once inspired them. After the successful release of "Northern Rage" they were invited to support Gamma Ray on their Japan tour
and to play all the big festivals like Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock (UK), MANOWAR's Magic Circle Festival and Earthshaker during the past summers. And besided proving that they are one of the hottest live acts of our times STORMWARRIOR added a special set to their live show, which they played
together with Kai Hansen celebrating old Helloween classics of the glorious "Walls" era. Now the band is back with their 3rd studio album "Heading Northe", recorded in their own "Thunderhall Studio" and mixed by Piet Sielck (Savage Circus, Iron Savior). The final mastering was done by Tommy Hansen
(Helloween, Hammerfall, Pretty Maids a.o.) in his Jailhouse Studios in Denmark. Much like a thunderstorm, "Heading Northe" is full of power and energy. Riffs cutting like razorblades, pushing drum and bass attacks and melodies that stay etched in your mind! With "Heading Northe" Stormwarrior
stay true to their music, measuring up to the highest standards - that's pure metal without any mediocrity!

Remastered edition of New Eden's album coming in June!
Posted by: warlordtony on Friday, May 30, 2008 - 12:00 AM
Bands' News When it comes to power metal, it’s not easy to come up with an original formula that would conjoin pure heaviness, catchy melodies and top-notch musical skills. Fortunately, New Eden is one of these bands that manage to get the job done and deliver a prime selection of tasty riffs and memorable vocals. Metal Mind Productions presents the re-release of the group’s second LP, “Obscure Master Plan” which shows exactly how a modern power album should sound! The album, first released in 1999, is a power metal masterpiece, capturing the sheer essence of the genre and improving it with the addition of speed and progressive metal elements. The ten tracks included on “Obscure Master Plan” range from heavy metal anthems to thrashing monstrosities and progressive elegies. New Eden managed to capture the retro sound of 80’s heavy metal and confront it with a truly modern approach, backed with some amazing guitar riffs and impressive vocal lines. Easily comparable to classic releases by Iced Earth, Symphony X or Sanctuary, “Obscure Master Plan” is definitely one of the best US power metal albums of the 90s.

The remastered edition of the album will be available on 23rd June 2008 in Europe and 5th August 2008 in USA (via MVD). New digipak edition is limited to 2000 copies.

First DVD release by Artillery!!!
Posted by: warlordtony on Friday, April 25, 2008 - 06:26 PM
Bands' News Artillery - back in the 80's they were one of the biggest European thrash sensations on the scene characterized by intense, energetic riffing and unique vocals of Flemming Ronsdorf, somewhat reminiscent of Slayer and Megadeth from the same era. The band was formed in 1982 in Taastrup, in the suburbs of Copenhagen, Denmark. The band members were: guitarists Jorgen Sandau and Michael Stützer, bassist Morten Stützer, drummer Carsten Nielsen and singer Carsten Lohmann. Their debut album "Fear of Tomorrow" and the follow-up "Terror Squad" have gained a legendary status, becoming some of the most thrilling thrash releases of the late 80's period. Their first album for Roadrunner Records, "By Inheritance", repeated the impressive success of the previous LPs. Flemming Rasmussen finally crafted a more than competitive sound for the band which was often compared with Metallica's "Master Of Puppets". Unfortunately, after that Artillery was put on hold for almost 9 years, to ultimately return in 1999 with another amazing release, "B.A.C.K.". Today, the band still remains active, although there are no signs of a new recorded material yet. During the wait, the fans were granted a unique chance to rediscover the band’s whole discography in one exclusive box set which was released by Metal Mind Productions in August 2007. Special collector’s edition of the “Through The Years” contains 4 Artillery albums plus 32 page booklet.
