Innovative Offenbarung!

Mit virtuos-flink geschrubbten Gitarren-Funkenflügen laden SWEEPING DEATH ein PROGRESSIVE THRASH METAL-Gewitter auf, dessen wuchtige Komplexität sich erstaunlich weitläufig entlädt. Mit ihrem beflügelnd quirligen Spezial-Mix werden die bayerischen Newcomer somit gleich reihenweise Metallerherzen im Sturm einnehmen können.

SWEEPING DEATH verbinden die treibend-powernden Kraftprotz-Manieren des zeitgemäßen, melodisch orientierten Power Metal mit der energischen und ungestümen Energie des Thrash Metal. Massive Einschübe von klassischem Schwermetall in spannend progressiv aufgebauten Strukturen sorgen dabei für eine heftig belebende Rundum-Massage der Nackenwirbel.





Selbst die raffiniertest inszenierten Soli lässt die Formation so selbstverständlich einfließen, als wäre man in der Band einzig dafür geboren worden. Mit einem vielfach fähigen Sänger, der von ästhetischem Classic Rock bis hin zu krass beißendem Extreme Metal so ziemlich alles draufhat, krönen die Jungs ihren wirklich einzigartigen Sound.


Jeweilige Genrekenner werden eigenständig komprimierte Anklänge an Annihilator bei SWEEPING DEATHbeispielsweise genauso heraushören können wie episch-atmosphärische Anleihen bei Pink Floyd. (!)

Perlend umgesetzte Einflüsse aus der Welt der Klassik erheben sich dabei immer wieder erlaucht aus dem merklich liebevoll und leidenschaftlich komponierten Repertoire der vielversprechenden Truppe. Gerade die künstlerisch clever zusammengebrachte Summe der kontrastreichen Bestandteile macht aus der Musik des sensationell talentierten Fünfers einen Hochgenuss für eine stilistische variable Vielzahl an Metal-Gourmets. (Markus Eck)


METALMESSAGE ist nun zum Jahresende 2016 auf der Suche nach einem geeigneten Label, das die bereits fertig produzierte EP dieser vielfach außergewöhnlichen Hoffnungsträger weltweit veröffentlichen wird.

On antique mission

German EPIC SPEED METAL newcomers SKULLWINX hit hard with their second album "The Relic".




The band is faster, stronger and more epic than ever before. The perfectionistic, diverse but still catchy songwriting, combined with the highclass production of the Grotesque Studios makes "The Relic" become one of the most anticipated albums of 2016.

This time SKULLWINX presents themselves more mature than on their 2014 debut full-length release "The Missions Of Heracles", they developed but still kept their unique sound.




"The Relic" is again a concept based album, this time about historic tales and legends from mid-Europe, plus the title-track which describes the name SKULLWINX. It is the "Sign Of Fallen Kings", the deadly prove of gods existence, a doomy view to theodicy - short "The Relic Of An Angel".

"The Relic" has been released on 24th of September via Metalizer Records.
The band is also very interested to play live on the globe as much as possible! Organizers & booking agents may get in touch:

(Powermetal.de)

8 / 10
"With their own Epic Speed Metal style, SKULLWINX have hit the nail on the head with their second album “The Relic” … the band delivers a faster and stronger punch … “The Relic” talks about the legends and historic tales surrounding central Europe, from the majestic feats of Attila the Hun to the mystical legend of Beowulf … this album is a perfect reminder of the classic Metal tunes we all grew up with … “The Relic” is definitely the start for SKULLWINX … the maturity and improvement observed between the “The Mission Of Heracles” and “The Relic” is only proof that SKULLWINX are on the path to greatness … I definitely recommend “The Relic” for all Heavy Metal lovers."

"'The Relic' is primarily a record for fans of this genre, on an enormously high level."
(Snooze Control)

"… an authentic epic Metal album with the "heartbreaking" vocals … dares you to a continuous Headbanging!"
(R1 Radio)

"Easily enjoyable, this band knows how to capture the listener’s attention … vocals have an impressive range and all instrumentalists have ample opportunity to showcase their talent … what stands out with this band is all songs on this release appear to have catchy chorus lines without ripping off bands who have come before them."

Prost!


"Wir sind HAGGEFUGG und ihr seid?" heizt Sänger Yannick alias ‚Gregor Krähenkehle‘ das Publikum an. "HaggeFOLL!", donnert die Menge prompt im Chor zurück. Das Publikum einbinden: HAGGEFUGG'sche Tradition!
Bandinfo:
Im Zeitalter der Fantastillionen Genres haben sich sechs Musiker aus Köln mit einem zwinkernden Auge dem PROST MITTELALTER PARTY ROCK verschrieben. Mit Hard Rock, Metal, Dudelsäcken und Schalmeien liefern sie ein musikalisches Fundament für wohl bekannte und zahlreiche eigene Melodien.




In ihren Texten behandeln diese fidelen Feierherzen mit Vorliebe die schönen Seiten des Lebens, oder greifen ‚mittelalterliche Motive‘ auf, die pointiert wiedergegeben werden.

Nüchtern betrachtet lässt sich die Musik von HAGGEFUGG zwar dem Mittelalter Rock und -Metal zuordnen, aber das alleine wird dem Spaß an der Musik und der Lebensfreude, die die Band gerne auf das Publikum überträgt, nicht gerecht. Musikalische Schubladen sind eng! Die Musiker von HAGGEFUGG wollen auf die Bühne!
Biographie:
2015 gaben HAGGEFUGG ihr Live-Debut, enterten schnell Bühnen von Koblenz bis Hamburg und veröffentlichten eine EP mit dem Titel "Trinkt aus". Auf vielen Konzerten, lokalen Festivals und im Vorprogramm von etablierten Acts wie Russkaja und In Extremo – HAGGEFUGG gewann den Sängerstreit auf In Extremos 20 Wahre Jahre Festival – sammelte die fröhliche Formation bereits im ersten Bühnenjahr viel Erfahrung.




2016 treibt es den enorm spielfreudigen Haufen erneut weit über heimische Stadtgrenzen hinaus und am 12. November haben HAGGEFUGG ein Studioalbum mit dem durchaus programmatischen Titel "Metgefühl" veröffentlicht.




MEDIA FEEDBACK für HAGGEFUGG "Metgefühl":

"Eine sehr imposante erste Platte … sie reißt sofort mit und versetzt eine in die Anfangszeiten der Szene … klare Kauf-Empfehlung für alle die Metal hören aber vor allem für Mittelalterbegeisterte und insbesondere für diejenigen, die eine Abwechslung / Alternative zu den Größen der Szene suchen … ein in allen Bereichen qualitativ hochwertiges Meisterstück."
(Metalblaze)

"Voller Kraft, fetten Rock und himmlischen Mittelalterklängen zeigen HAGGEFUGG, das sie sich keineswegs hinter den alteingesessenen Kollegen verstecken müssen, sondern mit einer erfrischenden Prise durch die Reihen jagen."
(Bad Black Unicorn)

Well oiled rhythm in the blood

Formed in 2014, Thuringian leatherheads SNAKEWINE released its Rock’n’Roll infused debut album "Serpent Kings" in late 2015.




Lively Boogie strokes and touching bluesy facets in the middle of a stormy guitar work enrich the whole thing with an pretty original interpretation.

Cross-references to established Rock acts such as The Carburetors, Peter Pan Speedrock, Chrome Division and Danko Jones, fitted with a thick pinch of old Motörhead, let the massive kicking street-sound of the East German gang go as lubricated.


Their gasoline drenched mixture of booming heavy Rock, classic Hard Rock tunes and dirty Metal just breaks through with its overdose of honesty.




Muscle-packed action, liters of hot sweat, crispy cheerleader girls and wonderfully hard Rock sound - all this can be seen in the new music video "Mean Machine" by SNAKEWINE.

The impressing casual HEAVY ROCK bunch around shouter Ronny had just as much fun as all the others involved in working with the Saalfeld, Germany based American Football Club, ‚Titans‘.




MEDIA FEEDBACK for SNAKEWINE "Serpent Kings":

5 / 5
(Harte Musik.de)

9 / 10
"'Serpent Kings' is … amazing … I like it so much that I’m going to listen to it eating beer and ice cream … Raven and other influences make this THE thing to listen to when the relatives are over and you need to tune out … power chords and thunder-bass make this a must for any Power Metal collection … this has a flare of Southern Rock and overall power tone; it is simply put; great to listen to."
(Dutch Metal Maniac)

"… this album has really impressed me a lot … this band , albeit echoing sounds already known to us, is able to make inroads into the hearts of listeners with the passion that burns within them, transmitting it to all of us … and that's good, very good indeed, because it is above all that music should be able to do … Good luck guys!"
(Antonio Moliterni)

8 / 10
"Motörhead, AC/DC, a hint of Street Metal, the impact of Danko Jones and the Snake wine has to come into your throats … you can not do without it … recommended without reservation."
(Iye Zine)

3,5 / 5 - recommendable
(DeepGround)

(Crossfire Metal)

7 / 10
"SNAKEWINE did a good Rock'n'Roll work … incorporated very tastefully a romance of southern mud … you will be surely entertained …"
(Hard Music Base)

"… features eight hard living cuts that would have made Lemmy proud! Speaking of which, Motörhead is at one end of the spectrum (as far as influences go!) with the likes of Guns N' Roses, Dangerous Toys, Skid Row, Danko Jones, and even Danzig sitting comfortably on the other end … sure, you could argue that there is a lot more to this bands sound, but either way it all adds up to one hell of a rock n' roll ride that probably slays the beast live … with summer fast approaching you couldn't ask for a better soundtrack to the good times than "Serpent Kings"."
(Heavy Metal Time Machine)

"Hellyeah Baby … this band got me hit … SNAKEWINE have that inviting music vitality that appeases anyone or anything to resist no more to the band`s offering … that`s crazy but I like put it this way … there also is some Motörhead, Volbeat, J.D Overdrive (PL), hairy Hard Rock going on relatively to European influences and I just end up thinking about this album like fucking amazing Rock`n`Roll with astonishing lyrics …"
(Monarch Magazine)

"… a solid start to SNAKEWINE’s recording career …"
(Dave Wolff - Autoeroticasphyxium Zine)

Mysteriously charming

HULDRE's long awaited sophomore album – "Tusmørke" – is finally here!
HULDRE is an upcoming NORDIC FOLK METAL-name on the Folk Metal scene and they have, since 2010, excited people all over the world with their spectacular compositions inspired by Nordic Folk music, Metal and Rock.
Musically they offer catchy melodies of female vocals, violin, hurdy gurdy and flute on a heavy foundation of guitar, bass and drums.




HULDRE weaves a lyrical universe revolving around the forces of nature, and imagery of the folklore of years past.
The band is by now known for their unique and integrated liveshows, where the audience, in a forest of leaves, skull and bones, are blown back by the sheer joy of playing.




HULDRE's debut album from 2012 – "Intet Menneskebarn"– was very well received by reviewers throughout the world and the band has through the years played at such venues as Copenhell and Wacken, won a few musical awards and built up a dedicated and loyal fanbase.

"Tusmørke" was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Lasse Lammert in LSD Studios in cooperation with HULDRE and has been released on the 3rd of November. This was celebrated with a release party at Loppen in Copenhagen.




MEDIA FEEDBACK for HULDRE "Tusmørke":

4,5 / 5
"Separate mention for Nanna Barslev … the thing about this woman is incredible … she has a peculiar voice … that astonishes me … sings the songs so that the words seem to dance out of her mouth, and you are rocking at every moment with her voice… personality and talent at the top … If you like Folk Metal, maybe coming out a bit of the usual, then you cannot escape HULDRE and this disc."
(Diario De Un Metalhead)

9 / 10
"With tons of Folk Metal in my collection, HULDRE manages it every single week to be in my playlist with at least one song … nothing but good … the band has matured even more and this album is produced very nice … although it’s Metal, the sound of HULDRE is quite clear, fitting the enchanting voice of Nanna perfectly … closing your eyes, you can imagine this Viking woman protection her tribe with her witchcraft … these unique vocals build up the nicely woven spells with the violin, hurdy-gurdy and flutes … again HULDRE made an awesome album …"
(Folk Metal.nl)

9 / 10
"The proportions between the Folk and Metal here are very well chosen, and sound perfectly matched … although the pace of cuts is not murderously-mad, it is very well timed with the melody and mood of the album and kicks ass! "Tusmørke" means "Twilight." A meaning it can have much. Great stuff !!!"
(Pest Webzine)

9 / 10
"HULDRE can create an atmosphere in less than five seconds … an atmosphere of bonfires, a mood of medieval and a mood of horror … HULDRE is not a blank band: they won the Wacken Open Air Battle finals in 2014 and came in third place at Wacken … since then they have cemented themselves as a world class Folk Metal band …"
(Heavy Metal.dk)

4 / 5
"…  The songs are better, the production is better, and the entire album seems to be thoroughly worked out from start to finish … nothing is left to chance, neither musically nor visually in cover and images. If you are into Folk Metal there is no way around Huldre's 'Tusmørke' …"
(Devilution.dk)

8 / 10
"… Folk Metal that is very traditional and melodic … production sounds very professional …"
(A Different Shade Of Black Metal)

8 / 10
"'Tusmørke' merges Folk with Metal at a proportion that is more uniquely styled and compelling than what most of the genre is currently offering … if you want your Metal folky, yet never turned into a goofy, gimmicky approach, it’s time to get acquainted with HULDRE."
(Dead Rhetoric)

"… listening to it feels like opening a treasure chest!"
(Snooze Control)

"This album is so well thought out and executed, it’s fun and enticing … rolling from entrancing vocals to amazing instrumental solos … this album has it all and is a delight! Barsley’s vocals are just exquisite, I can’t get enough of her singing! Her voice is showcased so well in this album."
(Metal Nexus)

"In this second album HULDRE didn’t innovate, didn’t change nor complicate, they simply continued the brilliant path set on the debut work … said this way it may not sound much - but sometimes in the simplicity of actions lies the geniality of the results; “Tusmørke” it’s proof of that."
(Metal Em Portugal)

"… in a very captivating way with enormous sense of authenticity that they use not only plenty of folk instruments but also sing in Danish, while processing a lot of texts from the traditional music culture there … a very handsome constructed album that takes you to the roots of Danish folk music which they themselves upgrading to a modern unit with a very powerful sound that sounds pretty catchy and clever."
