Spanish heavy metal band Valkyria have revealed the first advance single, cover art, and track-listing for their second album, Tierra Hostil (Hostile Land), which will be released on October 10th through Fighter Records.
Tierra Hostil was recorded, mixed, and mastered under the production of Pedro J. Monje (Vhäldemar) at his own Chromacity Studios where Valkyria recorded their debut album, Principio y Fin (Beginning & End), in 2016. This new work shows a natural development and a more mature sound in their own style of melodic, catchy, and powerful heavy metal that blends both modern and classic influences with a charming voice that creates killer vocal lines.
Get relief from the heat wave with this cold and rainy lyric video "Black Storm" by the melodic death metal group Aeolian. The first lyric video of their upcoming debut album Silent Witness, to be released on Sep 12th by Snow Wave Records.

Spanish gothic metal combo Rainover entered MathLab Recording Studio today to start tracking their sophomore album. Following the success of their debut platter “Transcending the Blue and Drifting Into Rebirth” this new record is a huge step ahead for the band, both in term of songwriting and identity.
Carlo Bellotti Stated:
“Today we started the production of Rainover‘s new album at MathLab Recording Studio. It has taken along time to become reality but we have done a great pre-production job with the songs in Spain and we can’t wait to finally listen to them finished. The band’s identity is now stronger and the musicians have such a great experience and conviction after 4 years of touring, festivals, songwriting and promotion. This record is darker but also more epic and melodic. I am so proud to be the producer of Rainover’s music again. I would like to thank the band and Jonathan Mazzeo for their constant trust. Wait and see…”
The band will record the album with their new guitar player Antonio Garcia.

Fighter Records is proud to announce the signing of Wild, one of Spain's finest heavy metal acts, for the international release of their third album, Sin Piedad ("Without Mercy"), originally self-financed earlier this year on a limited CD-R pressing.
Formed back in 2002 under the name of Majesty Night and releasing just an EP, they changed into Wild in 2004, releasing two EPs and two demos until, in 2010, the first album, La Nueva Orden ("The New Order"), was released. Another EP came out in 2013, and then a second album, En Tierra Hostil ("In Hostile Land"), was released in 2014.
In early 2018, Wild self-released their third album, Sin Piedad, in a very limited pressing for their nearest fans until Fighter Records offered them to release the album with worldwide distribution and promotion. This work is an astonishing masterpiece of pure heavy metal the classic '80s/'90s way, with awesome riffing, great solos, outstanding vocal performance, and a killer production!
International release date for Wild's Sin Piedad will be August 22nd through Fighter Records on CD format. In the meantime, check out the song "Venganza" from Sin Piedad HERE at Fighter Records' official YouTube channel.

The powerful melodic metal band Kilmara presents their new masterpiece “Across the Realm of Time“. After three critically acclaimed albums, the debut “Haunting Dreams” the work that put them on the world map, “Dont fear the Wolf” and their fantastic third album “Love songs and other nightmares“, it was time for Kilmara to make their fourth album, the most important of their career. With the incorporations of the American singer Daniel Ponce and the virtuoso Argentinian guitarist Miguel Laise, Kilmara returns to revolutionize their sound being now more melodic, faster and powerful, but without losing the class and mastery that characterizes them. “Across the realm of time” is the definitive work and consecration of Kilmara, a new step to conquer all lovers of quality metal.
Kilmara has created a collection of incredible songs that are inspired by melodic heavy metal and European progpower metal always looking for a modern and elegant sound. Kilmara is today one of the most powerful and innovative bands to consider in the modern metal scene. With a past-present-future concept as a basis, this is a circular work in which to submerge and let yourself be carried away by the passion that exists in each topic from beginning to end.
SynlakrosS have revealed the name and cover art of their new album “Malice Murder”.
The band declares:-
“It's a dark, beautiful, and dramatic album. A descent into hell. The album tells the tragic stories of damned souls, who at the time of their death they do a pact with the Devil, to back from the dead and carry out their vengeance. There are a couple songs where they accept their destiny or pray for salvation. But it's all in vain, they are condemned to hell.
Screams of pain, heavy riffs, hypnotic rhythms and sweet melodies that, together, create an atmosphere full of supernatural horror, energy, and sensuality in each song. The result it's a very catchy album.”
For this work, they have gone back to the producer Facundo Novo of Novo Estudios, with
whom they worked on their previous album, 'Death Bullets For A Forajido', which has received such good reviews and awards.
The cover art is a creation of Patricia, vocalist of the band, who is responsible for the art and design of SynlakrosS.
It will be available soon, but they haven't confirmed the release date.
