Guitarist Jason Ashcraft comments:
"I am so excited to finally announce this album. The concept is something I've been holding on to for a long time, and it's great to finally see it come to life."
The concept of the album shows each song focusing on a different scientist or figure throughout history. Though they went against the common beliefs of their time and often faced persecution for their ideas, they continued to ask questions and stand up for what they knew to be true. As time would go on, their theories and beliefs would eventually be acknowledged.
The band has also released the production staff for this coming record:
Michael Goodrich of Hypnotic Audio
Chris Collier of CMC21 Productions
Brett Caldas-Lima of Tower Studio
Simone Mularoni of Domination Studio
Alex Nasla of Witherfall and Gear Gods Studio
Album Art: Marc Whisnant, with edits by Bo Bradshaw
Helion Prime is:
Jason Ashcraft - Guitar
Chad Bill Anderson - Guitar
Mary Zimmer - Vocals
Alex Bosson - Drums
Jeremy Steinhouse - Bass
Russian Slavic folk metal band Sieta has started a crowdfunding on their debut album "Novgorod".
View The Campaign: https://igg.me/at/Novgorod
The album is based on real events. It involves the times when in the 10th century knyaz Vladimir declared Christianity as the state religion of Russia. He forced the people to renounce paganism. But there was one region that did not obey his will and fought for its freedom. This was Novgorod.
The album represents the opposing forces of the knyaz and the people of Novgorod using black metal and folk metal. The lyrics are in two ancient languages: Old Russian and Old Church Slavonic. They also represent paganism and Christianity in the album.
In addition, as part of the crowdfunding campaign, Sieta has also made a full-band cover video of the legendary Forefather.
Alexander Mokin - vocals
Sergey Stepanenko - guitars
Vuk Brankovich - bass
Dmitry Kim - drums

India's Demonstealer announces new crowdfunding campaign for ambitious upcoming EP
Demonstealer released an album last year to a terrific reception, and the sole person behind the band, Sahil Makhija, even employed the services of George Kollias of Nile fame. They're on the verge of putting out a new release, which is professed to be more death metal and fast, and already Kevin Paradis, who's played with bands like Benighted, Svart Crown, Agressor, etc. is on board for one of the songs. The rest of the guest musicians will be announced at a later date and is fiercely guarded as of now. Like last time, even for the new album Demonstealer have announced a massive crowdfunding campaign through PledgeMusic AT THIS LINK.
Demonstealer aka Sahil Makhija has said this about the campaign -
"Now I know for most people it's hard to pre-order something without knowing what's coming up but I can assure you, if you go by the quality of music I've been delivering, you won't be disappointed. While I had George Kollias drum on the solo album, this EP is a little more ambitious and I'm trying to work with not 1 but 3-4 drummers. While I've confirmed 3 of them I can only announce 1 right now and that is Kevin Paradis from France who is an incredible drummer. You can check him out on youtube. I can say that the other 2 drummers will also blow your mind."
Demonstealer is also the founding member of the well-known band and arguably India's biggest group, Demonic Resurrection. He's the only one who's successfully launching crowdfunding campaigns from India for each of his bands.
More info on the new release will be revealed soon.

Last week, the Finnish kings of epic melodic death, Wintersun, unveiled the track list of their third studio album 'The Forest Seasons' that will see the light of day in 2017. This new full-length album of 53 minutes follows the concept of Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons', but will of course feature typical epic death metal on four massive tracks. And although the album is already finished, front man and mastermind Jari Mäenpää now needs the support of his loyal fans:
"There will be a Wintersun crowdfunding starting March 1st. During last autumn, we had long and productive negotiations with our record label Nuclear Blast and we finalized it in November 2016. We came to a good solution, a win-win deal that will benefit everyone - Wintersun, Nuclear Blast and especially the fans! This means that we will do the crowdfunding and it will include our new album The Forest Seasons!
The purpose of this crowdfunding is to build the Wintersun HQ studio. As some of you may know this has been in the plans for a long time. It is our long time goal and dream. Building the studio is absolutely essential in order to finish TIME II and produce our future albums as fast as possible and with the best production. All the money we raise will go directly to Wintersun, 100%, which we will use for building the Wintersun Headquarters.
This will be the biggest crowdfunding you've ever seen in the metal scene! It will be a different kind of crowdfunding than usually. We are not going to offer dozens of different items from guitar picks to used socks for a thousand bucks. We're going to cut all the crap and only offer one very valuable perk! That's right! It will be a massive Wintersun Crowdfunding Package called the Forest Package and it will have lots of great Wintersun content including our new album The Forest Seasons. You will be blown away!
The Forest Package is huge and otherwise it would be very expensive, but we are going to offer it with to very affordable price in our crowdfunding. So you guys will get great value for your money and enjoy the new album like it should be experienced, with the best quality! The best thing is that all of the content is 100% done, so you don't have to wait for many months. It will be basically a pre-order for our new album.
This way you get the new Wintersun album the easiest way, with the best quality and with the best price and you'll help us get to the next level, so we can produce albums foryou guys faster and with the best production! So this is a WIN-WIN for everyone!
The crowdfunding will take place on Indiegogo between March 1st - 31st. It will last only one month, so you guys need to be prepared! Get those credit cards and PayPal accounts ready!
Thank you! "
