Spanish power metal hopefuls Tales of Gaia have inked a deal with Fighter Records for the release of their upcoming debut album this September.
Formed back in 2010 in Barcelona, Tales of Gaia did their first demo recording in 2012 and then their self-financed debut EP, Breaking Dawn, in 2014, which came out in January 2015. This EP was well received in the scene and sold copies not only throughout Europe, but also America and Asia. However, their vocalist left the band after a couple of shows, and a new one was recruited in June of the same year.
After some line-up changes, the band finally entered the studio in early 2017 to record their debut album, entitled Hypernova, at Dante Studios with Israel Ramos (vocalist in Avalanch, Alquimia, and Amadeüs) and Wheel Sound Studio with Txosse Ruiz (producer of bands like Ankor and Döria). Now, they just got signed to Fighter Records, who will take care of the worldwide promotion and distribution.
Tales of Gaia are finishing the recordings of Hypernova, and soon we'll be able to reveal the fantastic cover artwork as well as track-listing and a first advance single, so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out the band's official Facebook site below for more news.

The Spanish Melodic Death Metal band In Thousand Lakes have just released their second album “Age Of Decay” through Xtreem Music.
"Age of Decay" was recorded at Chromaticity Studios (Vhäldemar, Rise To Fall...). This new album means a huge step for the band where they reflect all their influences that goes from European styled Death Metal to Heavy Metal, Thrash, Progressive...
Today, Hells Headbangers announces the signing of Spain's Krossfyre. The first fruit of this union shall be the band's six-song debut EP, Burning Torches, whose cover art and tracklisting are further below.
Krossfyre formed only last year, but set to work on writing and recording Burning Torches, completing the six-song/20-minute EP last September at Moontower Studios. Although an otherwise brand-new name, Krossfyre include among their ranks members who do or have done time in such bands as Sheidim, Spain's Graveyard, Körgull the Exterminator, Insulters, Morbid Flesh, and Suspiral.
References to be made include classic Nifelheim and Vomitor, but also early Tribulation, later Desaster, Gospel of the Horns, Bestial Mockery, and Nocturnal Graves among others. But the sheer charisma and cantankerous esprit Krossfyre exude - not to mention infectious, gloriously METAL songwriting - puts the band squarely amongst those hallowed ranks. Early days still, to be sure, but on evidence of the forthcoming Burning Torches, the name Krossfyre will soon be upon the tongues of diehards worldwide soon enough.
A statement from the band reads: "Playing blackened heavy/thrash evil music, Hells Headbangers was our very first choice for obvious reasons. It is the home of Hobbs' Angel of Death, Vomitor, and Blood Feast just to name a few of an endless list. No other label can presume to have such a strong, high profile and respected roster, especially these days where labels need to adapt to new trends or disappear. We put all our energy and effort into Burning Torches, and we're sure that Hells Headbangers will know how to push it the way it deserves!"
Excalibur, the legendary Spanish heavy metal band formed back in 1984, have just signed a deal with Fighter Records for the release of their third album, titled Humo Negro ("Black Smoke"), coming later this spring.
After a couple of demos in '84 and '87, Excalibur released their debut album in '88 under the title of Generación Maldita ("Damned Generation"), which has the honour of being the heavy metal record with the highest selling price in Spain - no more and no less than 1600 Euros! Bad luck followed this record: only 100 copies were saved from destruction, which means it's one of the most sought-after treasures of Spanish heavy metal/rock.
In 1996, Excalibur recorded their second album, Cero, which was never commercialized, remaining unreleased still today. In 2013, the band returned with a new EP, Más Duros ("Harder"). Now in 2017, Excalibur has finished what will be their third full-length album, Humo Negro, where they represent the purest and most traditional Spanish heavy metal/hard rock, and will be released, promoted, and distributed both nationally and internationally by Fighter Records, the new division of Xtreem Music devoted to traditional metal sounds.
Soon, Fighter Records will reveal more details about Humo Negro, as well as its release date. In the meantime, visit Excalibur's official Facebook page HERE, and listen to a song from that mythic debut album from '84, Generación Maldita, HERE.
