Lutharö, from Hamilton, Canada is proud to premiere their music video for their single “Unleash The Beast” via Bravewords.com. The single is the title track off their upcoming EP and is an enticing amalgamation of death metal growling and punchy double kicks accompanied by power metal cleans and fiery guitar solos.
The myriad of dynamic elements and groovy bits make this one powerhouse of a song. Its lyrics follow the familiar situation of someone restraining themselves for too long in fear of judgement or emotional pain; as this goes on they feel an anger grow inside of them until it eventually turns into a full on monster seeking vengeance. The range on the vocals masterfully paint a vivid image of all hell breaking loose.
Further expanding on where Shipperbottom’s lyrics come from:
“The lyrics specifically on this EP were all inspired by emotional experiences in her day to day life with a more morbid twist and added metaphors.”
The band has crafted this EP in the hope their listeners will have a positive and and lasting experience, finding it enjoyable and authentic but also relatable. Giving nods to some of their noticeable influences including Arch Enemy, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Behemoth and Iron Maiden, Lutharö sits imposingly on the border of the death, power and thrash sub-genres.
The video for “Unleash the Beast” can be heard at http://bravewords.com/news/exclusive-canada-s-lutharo-premier-unleash-the-beast-music-video-new-ep-out-in-november
"Unleash the Beast" is due out November 16th and will be available on Bandcamp, iTunes, and Spotify. Download of the EP title track is available on the band's Bandcamp here.
Greek Power Groove Metallers Full House Brew Crew have announced the release of their monstrous second album 'Me Against You' on November 16, 2018 via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.
After many years of absence, because of Vagelis’ duties as the bass player of the legendary Rotting Christ, Full House Brew Crew are coming back with a strong statement of an album.
“No Retreat” and “Black Empty Box” were the fan’s favourite songs from their debut album “Bet It All” and with those songs in mind, now they put out “Me Against You”, which maybe includes the heaviest power grooves ever written from a European artist.
The album can be pre-ordered here:
“Me Against You” influences came from bands like Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, Pantera, Metallica (Black Album era) and Black Label Society. This made the album more diverse on vocal perspective and more mature compositions! Full House Brew Crew keep on making headbang-worthy records, with melodies that stick to your brain!
Full House Brew Crew is:
Vagelis Karzis - Vocals, Guitars (Rotting Christ)
Spiros Dafalias - Bass
George Tzatzakis - Guitars
Alex Keito - Drums
Full House Brew Crew was founded during 2009 by Vagelis "Van" Karzis, member of Rotting Christ for the last 6 years. Vagelis is the lead singer, lead guitar player and the main songwriter of the band. In 2009 he wrote 10 Heavy Groove songs influenced from bands like Pantera, Black Label Society, Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Metallica and on 2011 having Spiros (bass) and Sakis (drums) on his side they recorded and self-released their first full-length album called Bet It All! Being active all these years by touring and opening for some big bands and festivals in Greece! Spiritual Beggars, Corrosion Of Conformity, 1000Mods and Planet Of Zeus just to name a few!
Having their own style for the Groove rhythms, they combine with aggressiveness and catchy melodies! And just like a thunderbolt charging straight from the top of Mount Olympus, these heavy-riffing monsters are ready to become the next name of "World's Rock Gods" as been written at Spirit Of Metal!
Full House Brew Crew states: "Our first focus is to create GOOD music, then promote it to people, create loyal fan base and tour as much as possible"
Hailing from Croatia, the rising stars Sage have just signed a worldwide record deal with Rockshots Records for the release of their debut album "Anno Domini 1573", which is being released on September 21, 2018.
The album is a concept album about the Peasants’ Revolt that took place in England in the 1300s. The album encompasses themes of the battles between good and evil, honesty and greed. SAGE delivers a mix of heavy, powerful and progressive metal, which the band blends to forge a unique but recognizable sound.
"The band name Sage means both the plant sage and 'a wise old man'", comments Enio Vučeta, guitarist and backup singer of the band, a living legend of the Croatian rock/metal scene. "We wanted to connect this to ourselves in a way because we are composed of several generations of Croatian musicians and we have great ambitions for our music to make a breakthrough in the world."
"Anno Domini 1573" has been co-produced by Casey Grillo (former Kamelot member), mixed and mastered by Jim Morris at Morrisound Recording studio. It is available for pre-order in Digipak Deluxe edition CD+DVD at http://bit.ly/SAGE_PREORDER.

Japanese progressive power metal group Saber Tiger have released an official video for the song The Worst Enemy, one of the standout tracks (of many) on their forthcoming album Obscure Diversity. Brutal and subtle in equal measures, Saber Tiger are taking no one prisoner here.
Note: The fleeting outdoor shots seen in the video were taken from the bands recent trip to Latvia in the Baltics (specifically at the ruins and beach in Karosta) very close to our home base at Sliptrick Records in Liepaja.
Obscure Diversity shows a band that has no intention of slowing down more than three and a half decades after their genesis. If anything, their trademark blend of classy melodicism and fierce intensity is in better balance than ever. Read more about Obscure Diversity …here

Rockshots Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Finnish metal combo SoulHealer for their fourth studio album entitled "Up From The Ashes" set for release on September 14th in Europe and September 21st in North America. Album pre-order available http://bit.ly/UpFromTheAshes_CD.
SoulHealer play traditional heavy and power metal with an old fashioned 80's attitude blended with a modern metal touch. Their catchy lyrics and unforgettable guitar riffs delivers the perfect soundtrack to both 80’s lovers and the new fans alike looking for great melodies and easy-to-remember songs.
Guitarist Teemu Kuosmanen comments:
"Our upcoming album will be a killer! This is our fourth album and the first one we took our time with. Our previous albums "Chasing the Dream" and especially the third "Bear the Cross" we rushed to compose and record. Both albums included really good songs but I can't stop thinking how good they could be if we didn't hurry them. Now we look forward and this upcoming album has matured slowly and we have taken time to make the arrangements better. I’m sure our fans will love this album. They will find something new but the soul of SoulHealer will still be there.”
SoulHealer's first single “The Final Judgement” off “Up From The Ashes” can be heard at the following link: https://youtu.be/lcSRdxZVZPE
plus available on Spotify and iTunes.
Manticora will release their eighth album, "To Kill To Live To Kill", on August 3 via ViciSolum Records.
The Danish thrash/power metallers have unveiled the video for “Echoes Of A Silent Scream”. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/rnzKB67Q7sI
Another Manticora concept double effort, it is based on the thriller/horror novel that lead singer Lars F. Larsen has written.
The novel itself is scheduled for a May 2018 release, while the two concept albums will be released as two separate albums, one year apart.
"To Kill To Live To Kill" cover artwork is a stunning picture, painted by the extremely talented Danish painter David Troest, and it resembles the stories of the novel.
"We have always tried out new cover artwork artists for each album, so when looking for the perfect person to give justice to the novel and the two albums, we wanted someone who'd be able to grasp the essence of the stories within the book, and when looking at David's pictures in general, it's evident for even the feeble-minded that he's that exact guy. He also lives less than an hour away from us, so it was a win-win situation for everyone to be able to meet up and do corrections on the front cover and all the other pictures that'll appear in the booklet. We're already beginning the work for the second album as well, so we can follow the release schedule of having the albums out 12 months apart."

Slovakian Power Metal Group Eufory are back with their new album Higher And Higher and it’s different in almost every aspect when compared to their previous album. From the members’ songwriting capabilities, the technical proficiency, the lyrical thoughts to the resulting sound – all of these things have moved to another level and changed through several gears, providing the greatest amount of pleasure possible to the listeners ears. The only thing that has remained untouched is the urge to push the “Play” button once again, even after repeated spins of the album.
The material was recorded in PureSound Studio in Slovakia and GM Recording Studio in Czech Republic. Higher And Higher got its final touches thanks to the mixing and mastering skills of Roland Grapow (Grapow Studios), who is also known as the former guitarist of Helloween and co-founder of the Masterplan band. His creative ideas greatly contributed to how the final of the album. This is straight ahead, old-school influenced power metal with a modern attitude. Eufory are back with 9 tracks (including a killer Motorhead cover) and a great new sound to get the juices flowing!
Higher And Higher | Released on May 29th, 2018 on Sliptrick Records
Lubos Senko – Vocals | Stevo Hodon – Guitar | Peter Drabik – Guitar | Miriama Hodon – Drums | Adrian Benca – Bass
