This month with news from: Echoes, Floating Worlds, Lugnet, MASS, Qantice, Tarchon Fist, and a tour date update.

*****

::: Next release: QANTICE – The Anastoria – out April 26th, 2019! :::

Qantice is more than your average virtuoso symphonic metal band. Its sci-fi saga encompasses both a story and the craziest sci fi/fantasy movie atmospheres. Enriched by a violinist and various traditional instruments, the sound of the French quintet is unique in this scene.

     

On their previous album “The Phantonauts”, Qantice had gathered prestigious names like PelleK (3 million subscribers on YouTube) as lead vocalist, Zaher Zorgati (Myrath) or Yossi Sassi (ex-Orphaned Land). Then, in 2016, the band recruited Swedish singer David Akesson (Aldaria, Vivaldi Metal Project, Six Foot Six, ex Moonlight Agony) to share the stage with Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody on their European tour, and then Myrath in Paris.

Thanks to a lineup strengthened by touring together, the band’s chemistry is stronger than ever, making this third album their most epic and collaborative effort yet. With Kevin Codfert (Adagio, Myrath) on production and many surprises such as Italian opera tenor Riccardo Cecchi from L T’s Rhapsody, here’s a new offering of pure epicness, served by the biggest orchestras and choirs ever deployed in a Qantice album.

Line-up:

David Åkesson: Lead & Backing Vocals, Trumpet; Tony Beaufils: Guitars, Banjo, Bouzouki, Synths and Orchestration; Alexandra Laya: Violin; Christine Lanusse: Bass; Aurélien Joucla: Drums

Guests:

Riccardo Cecci: Vocals on Fractal Universe, Krooner; Dimitri Halby: Transverse Flute on Little Knight's Oath; John Lang: Uilleann pipe on Rivers Can't Fly; Justine Descamps: Oboe on Timeline Tragedy; Arnaud Condé: Flute on Cosmic Sway; Bassoon on Cosmic Sway, Fractal Universe; Kevin Codfert: Piano on Without a Hero, Mad Clowns; Tomaz Boucherifi-Kadiou: Bombarde on Timeline Tragedy

::: MASS – PR start for “Still Chained”! :::

The PR campaign for the comeback album “Still Chained” by German Hard Rock veterans MASS now has started! Please request the title if you haven’t done this yet. The band also is available for interviews!

    

Founded in 1973 with an international line-up (from Germany, Switzerland, USA), MASS in their prime time played about 180 gigs in clubs and at  festivals every year all over Europe. They sold over 200.000 albums and received radio airplay all over the continent. The album „Slaughter House“ (1979) hit the top 5 of the Greek album charts. A few years later, the readers of a famous German Hard Rock magazine voted MASS on # 4 of the best German Metal Bands after the Scorpions, Accept and Warlock. But fate doesn’t care about glory or fame. Just like so many musicians at the time, they had to pay the price for an excessive Rock’ n Roll lifestyle which resulted in the breakup of the band in 1987.

The band returns on April 26th, 2019 with their brand new studio album “Still Chained”.

Next live dates:

26.04. D-Regensburg, Tiki Beat

::::FLOATING WORLDS return with new album “Battleship Oceania” on May 17th, 2019! :::

FLOATING WORLDS are pleased to announce the release of our third album entitled “Battleship Oceania” via Pride & Joy Music, on May 17th 2019.

     

The album consists of 12 songs and narrates the story of a legendary battleship and its crew, who both turned into a horrifying floating ghost, after the assignment of a mission that proved to be fatal.

Through the unexpected revelations and events that take place as the story unfolds, the listeners take a close look at the ugly face of war, the manipulations of vain people interested in power and money and the obscure role of global media but they also have the opportunity to witness the self-sacrifice for the greater good, the sincere repentance and the greatness of forgiveness.

The album was recorded and mixed at “CFN Recordings Studio” by Dion Christodoulatos. Mastering was held by Nasos Nomikos at “Vu Productions Mastering Studio”. Front cover was designed by Virginia Kakava and booklet was designed by Costas Capayannidis.

Tracklist:

  1.  Oceania,  2.  Sailing In History, 3.  New Mission, 4.  The Empire Of The Media, 5.  The Curse,  6.  Retribution, 7.  Game Of Thrones, 8.  Captain Evil,  9.  The Last Goodbye, 10. Devine Love, 11. Eternal Sleep, 12. Island Of Dreams

::: MADISON - “Best In Show” - re-issue with two bonus tracks available from November 16th, 2018! :::

We're happy to announce the next re-release of a sought after classic album from the mid 80's:

MADISON - Best In Show

The album was remastered, comes with two bonus tracks and a new booklet - it's for the first time available on CD in Europe. Ltd. edition release of 1000 copies only and while stock will last!

Release date: November 16th, 2018

Based in Hudiksvall, Sweden, and active between 1983-1987, MADISON was one of the most prestigious Swedish Hard Rock/ Hair Metal groups of the mid 80’s. The line-up of the band in 1986 consisted of the young Göran Edman (vocals, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum etc.), Anders Kalson (guitar), Mikael Myllynen (guitar), Conny Sundqvist (bass) and Peter Fredrickson (drums). During the time of their existence, MADISON released two albums, i.e. “Diamond Mistress” (1984) and “Best In Show” (1986).

The group had major success in Japan where they also went on tour after the release of the “Best In Show” album. This record was mainly produced at Studio 39 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Jörgen Bo and contains the band’s most successful track “Oh Rendez Vous”. Sonet Records/Universal Music released this record in 1986 in Europe on vinyl only; in Japan it also got a CD release at the time.

Pride & Joy Music now, in co-operation with Universal Music Sweden, releases this record for the first time on CD in Europe. The music was taken from the original masters and remastered. The original artwork from the vinyl edition built the foundation for the newly created CD booklet. Some pictures from the archives and two bonus tracks (“The Look In Your Eyes” and “The Tale”) were added.

Track list: 1. Oh Rendez Vous, 2. Carry On, 3. Hotel Party, 4. Drama, 5. Shine, 6. The Look In Your Eyes, 7. Give It Back (Remix), 8. Out Of The Bunker, 9. World Wide Man, 10. Can’t Take It, 11. Mental Masturbation, 12. The Tale

::: DOMINOE - The Lost Radio Show - set for release on November 16, 2018 :::

1988 - The debut single from a previously unknown Hard Rock band dominates the singles charts for many weeks. The track is called “Here I Am” and well-known from a Renault-5 TV commercial. Many TV show performances and intense touring all over Europe followed for the band DOMINOE. 

  1. DOMINOE now since 30 years have been producing new albums every now and then – whenever they had fun to enter the studio again. The forces behind are mastermind Robert Papst on guitars and singer Jörg Sieber. “The Lost Radio Show“ now will be released in November and is the 6th album by this group. The content: the long lost studio live session recordings for a radio show from 2008. 

Originally recorded for a British radio show in 2008, parts of these recordings got lost at the time because of a hard disk crash. The planned radio show never happened and the  incomplete „tapes“ ended up in the archives. By surprise, Robert Papst discovered these “tapes” again in the year 2018. Most of the tracks were used and only the really lost tracks now have been newly recorded. The result: The Lost Radio Show

Guitars. Keyboards. Bass. Drums. A lot of great voices. And the classic instruments of the Mainstream Rock genre. Former band members and longtime musical friends helped to complete the recordings. The new release covers the atmosphere from the original sessions and offers a state of the art production, too. The 15 tracks cover songs from all five Dominoe albums and will take you onto a journey back to the year 2008. Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen, L.A. handled the mastering.

Line-up: Jörg Sieber – Lead Vocals; Robert Papst – Guitars; Günter Skitschak – Guitars; Christian Birawsky - Drums, Backing Vocals; Henner Malecha - Bass ; Eddie Daum – Keyboards; Ed Straker – Keyboards; Janina Dietz – Backing Vocals, Lead Vocals; Grazia Satler – Backing Vocals; Jane Bogaert – Backing Vocals; Timo Kresslein –Backing Vocals, Percussions

::: ORION’S REIGN release “Together We March” feat. Ripper Owens as single & lyric video! :::

Here comes the second single and video from ORION REIGN's new album "Scores Of War" (out: 19.10.2018) for the track "Together We March" feat. Ripper Owens (ex Judas Priest, Iced Earth) as guest on vocals!

Video link: https://youtu.be/RtsHp22hP48

Orion's Reign are back with their second full-length studio album, "Scores of War", set for an October 19th release by Pride & Joy Music.  The album, engineered, mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Powerwolf, Arch Enemy, Dragonforce, Amorphis etc.), in Sweden by Jens Bergen, Linus Corneliusson and Orion's Reign, includes 11 tracks of epic/symphonic metal. 

       

The band continues the music path it had already begun with the previous album "Nuclear Winter", offering this time a full symphonic experience profoundly influenced by epic movie scores, with a complete orchestra, bombastic rhythms, massive choirs and guest appearances such as Tim Ripper Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Bob Katsionis (Firewind), Mark Boals (Malmsteen) and others. The record is extremely diversified and contains much to explore, from Symphonic Speed Metal to catchy (Hard) Rock sounds, as well as operatic refrains filigreeing rich emotionality. The single "The Undefeated Gaul" is the first appetizer of the album, with fast riffs, heavy rhythm section and furious guitar solos! Stay tuned for more single releases!
