Faroe Islanders Tyr announce 2019 headline Euro tour "The Tour From Hel" with Heidevolk and Dalriada as support
On March 8th, the Faroe Islands' Tyr will release their eighth full-length, "HEL", via Metal Blade Records. Hel is a collection of ruthlessly melodic and irresistibly compelling progressive folk metal that will immediately resonate with any who have followed the band at any point over the two decades of their storied career.
To celebrate the new album Tyr are about to hit the road across Europe alongside Dutch Folk Metallers Heidevolk and Hungarian Folk Metallers Dalriada. They'll be joined on stage by Attila Vörös (Nevermore, Satyricion and many more) again as the honorary fourth member of the new line-up. Previously Tyr has been reinforced by Tadeusz Rieckmann (known from Dalriada) on drums.
“It's been way too long since we were on a headliner tour in Europe, and we are very excited to get back on the European roads - with our good Dutch friends, Heidevolk, and with Dalriada from Hungary - to play some of our new songs to you, as well as some of our old headbangers.”
A new song also has been launched, Fire and Flame can be listened below.
Týr "Fire and Flame" - www.youtube.com/watch?v=52GhQD0fW8s
After a successful tour with Korpiklaani and Arkona, Heidevolk is ready to embark on another European quest. As a co-headliner they will take you through ancient battlefields and mead-filled drinking halls in honor of "Vuur Van Verzet" their most varried release to date.

To make this nice power / pagan package complete Dalriada will join the party for their first ever mainland Europe tour with the latest album "NYÁRUTÓ"

Lovebites will unleash the sophomore full-length album called "Clockwork Immortality" on the 7th of December 2018.
The band consists of Asami (vocals), Miho (bass), Haruna (drums), Midori (guitars) and Miyako (guitars/keyboard). The Lovebites sound owes a debt to the many great overseas heavy metal bands that have directly influenced their writing. Coupled with their own unique take on music, taking a piece from each member’s eclectic background and experiences, everything has culminated into forging a truly formidable group.
Their first European tour, including stops in the Netherlands, Germany, France and the UK starts on the 13th of November this year!

Lovebites started working on their first EP at the end of 2016, joined by the amazing engineering team of Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila from Finland who are known for their work with Nightwish, Children of Bodom and Amorphis to name but a few. The Lovebites EP was the end product of those sessions, which was released in mid-2017. In October 2017 they released their first full album, "Awakening From Abyss". In the aftermath of the release of "Awakening From Abyss" in October 2017 through Europe and North America; Asami, Haruna, Midori, Miho and Miyako performed their first overseas live shows in London.
On the heels of this success, in June 2018 the all-female band won the Best New Band award at the Golden Gods Awards held by the UK music magazine Metal Hammer, being the very first Japanese band to pull this off.
Lovebites released their second mini album "Battle Against Damnation" that same month, taking it on the road with them to the world’s biggest metal festival Wacken Open Air in Germany, where they drove a crowd of over 10,000 people into frenzy before appearing on the main stage at the UK’s Bloodstock Open Air headlined by Judas Priest.

Thanks to the "Promo 2007" the band secured a deal with legendary American label Unique Leader Records (Deeds Of Flesh, Disgorge, Beheaded), which originally released the album on February 23rd 2008.
Guitarist/songwriter Giulio Moschini comments:
"To celebrate the 10th anniversary of our album 'The Vile Conception' and to thank all our fans who have been supporting Hour of Penance through all these years, we've uploaded our 'Promo 2007' on our Bandcamp page. This promo was originally sent only to labels and sold in limited quantities. You can now stream those 3 tracks for free via Bandcamp!".
Hour Of Penance are currently writing the follow-up to "Cast the First Stone" (Prosthetic Records, 2017).
DragonForce´s Fred Leclercq and Joey Jordison of Vimic (former drummer and co-founding member of Slipknot), who just released the brand new and critically acclaimed album 'Repulsion For Humanity' by all-star death metal band Sinsaenum on August 10th 2018 with Ear Music, are about to kick off for an extensive European tour this September! Starting on September 28th with shows in France, continuing their run all over Germany, Poland, Italy, Scandinavia, BeNeLux and many more European hot spots with a final show in Helsinki a month later, the band will be joined by very special guests Hatesphere.
When you hear about artist side projects or self-styled “all-star bands”, you usually cannot help but roll your eyes at the audacity of the creators. However, when it comes to the extreme metal beast that is Sinsaenum, open your mind and ears and forget your preconceptions! Whilst they may draw their sonic power from renowned names, these are first and foremost friends joining forces as the most logical thing to do. Sinsaenum is a solidly bonded band of like-minded great musicians featuring Joey Jordison, DragonForce's Fred Leclercq, Attila Csihar from Norwegian black metal legends Mayhem and drone masters SunnO))) (who has been featured on the band's highly acclaimed debut album 'Echoes Of The Tortured`'), Sean Zatorsky from NWoAHM titans Dååth and Chimaira, Stéphane Buriez of French death metal veterans Loudblast as well as Heimoth, mastermind of eclectic extremists Seth.
“I’ve been a death metal fan ever since and wrote some of these songs already in 1998, so it’s something I always wanted to do,” says multi-instrumentalist and virtuoso bass player of London-based Power Metallers DragonForce Fred Leclercq, who sticks to the guitar on this venture. “There was never the right time though, nor did I find the proper people to pull it off.”
The end result of this mighty fusion is the second successfully released album titled 'Repulsion For Humanity', featuring some head-splitting riffs, challenging rhythms and structures, but at once such an infectious record created by one of the most influencing and incredibly versatile musicians the metal scene has to offer.
It's been just a matter of time to finally bring this exciting band project live on stage:-
"We are really excited about this upcoming tour in the fall and we looking forward to finally being able to meet our fans. To embark on this run with HateSphere is an honour and a great motivation to outdo ourselves every night! Those of you who have already seen us with our other bands know what we are capable of; all these energies combined will be something unique you dont want to miss! See you all very soon!“ - Joey, Steph, Heimoth, Sean, Fred.
Check out this promising teaser in support of the band's upcoming 'Repulsion For Humanity Tour 2018' right HERE!

We’ve all been fans of Ihsahn’s work for many years now and to support such an iconic artist we’ve looked up to is an honour and will certainly be a defining moment in not only our careers, but also our lives. Opening will be instrumental Norwegians, Astrosaur. If you want prog, melody, metal, and history, be there."
