Swedish death metal rulers GRAVE have finished the recording for their eagerly awaited new album, “Out Of Respect For The Dead”. Three years have passed since the release of GRAVE’s last opus, the highly praised “Endless Procession Of Souls”, that was followed by a European headlining tour together with Sonne Adam, the release of the vinyl-only “Morbid Ascent” EP and another tour together with their labelmates Entombed A.D. Since autumn 2014 GRAVE have constantly been working on the follow-up album of “EPOS”. Now “Out Of Respect For The Dead” is finally done. And it turned out to be one of the angriest and most evil albums of the band’s career. Check out the brand new track “Redeemed Through Hate” and judge by yourself:

“Out Of Respect For The Dead” will be released through Century Media Records in October. More news to be revealed soon.

´77 – new album “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” out October 30th, 2015; support Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock in the fall

30. July 2015

Founded by the Valeta brothers, ’77 (pronounced Seventy Seven) reflects the ideology and musical concept of the Seventies, an era they artistically and aesthetically feel comfortable with and truly at home. Over the past years ’77 didn’t just make a name for themselves with their studio recordings, but particularly with their high energy live shows that secured them countless European tours with the likes of diverse bands such as Bullet or Audrey Horne.

 

Since playing live is one of their fortes ’77 are happy to announce supporting Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock on selected shows of their upcoming tour in the fall.

The tour perfectly matches the release of ’77’s upcoming album “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” that is due to be released October 30th, 2015. “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” was produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano who has worked diverse artists such as Paradise Lost, Ghost, Ulver or Cathedral. You figure this might sound too have for fans of real Rock’n’Roll? Wait until you get to hear the first track and you’ll be turned into a real believer that this was a match made in Rock’n’Roll heaven!
