13. December 2018

English NWOBHM legends SATAN announces ‘Cruel Winter’ European tour with RAM and Screamer for ten dates in six countries.

Comments Satan: “it may be called the Cruel Winter tour but things are going to get decidedly HOT when Satan, Ram & Screamer roll into town. We are stoked to get back to some places we haven’t played in thirty years! Watch out Europe, something wicked this way comes”


SATAN are in full promotion swing of their current album ‘Cruel Magic‘ which has been released in September of 2018. The album is a huge success for band and label which culminated in a sensational German chart entry on position 28.

Swedish labelmates and defenders of the faith RAM have been recruited as direct support. RAM will be performing a greatest hits mix of their fantastic catalogue including a good chunk of tracks from their latest album ‘Rod‘ (2017)!


Comments RAM: ‘We are proud and excited to announce that we will hit the road with the absolute legendary NWOBHM band SATAN in feburary. This tour will be a deadly alloy of two generations of Metal, the innovators and the defenders. We are also thrilled to see that our fellow Swedes Screamer are on the bill. EUROPE, THE HEAVY METAL TYRANNY RETURNS, BANG YOUR HEAD OR LOSE IT!

Opening up each night will be Swedish Heavy Metal road warriors SCREAMER.

Psychotic Waltz headliner ProgPower Europe 2019

13. November 2018


Californian prog metallers Psychotic Waltz have been announced as the first headline act for ProgPower Europe 2019. They join already-announced British prog rockers Voices From The Fuselage, Australian proggers Teramaze and Andalucian prog metallers Persefone on the bill.


“Psychotic Waltz are on our list for a long time. With a new album to come, we are pleased to finally have them on stage at ProgPower Europe in 2019. Psychotic Waltz is one of these bands that is still missing on our list of bands that have played the festival before. But now, after 20 years it finally will happen, it definitely will be one of the highlights.” 


The original line-up of Psychotic Waltz reunited in 2011 after a break of nearly 15 years. The band are currently writing material for a new studio album, which will be their first since 1996’s Bleeding. The band plan to enter the recording studio in Spring 2019.


ProgPower Europe 2019 will take place in the first weekend of October, Friday 4 – Sunday 6 October. Psychotic Waltz will headline the event on Saturday October 5.

SONATA ARCTICA announces “acoustic adventures” for March 2019!

7. November 2018


It’s been very silent in the band camp of Finnish melodic metal titans SONATA ARCTICA recently. But this break has been put to good use: the band has entered the studio to start the recording process for their tenth studio album, due in 2019 through Nuclear Blast. But before their new record will see the light of day, SONATA ARCTICA will embark on a special journey – their very first acoustic run across European soil! Support will be provided by special guests, Los Angeles, CA based metallers WITHERFALL. Further details can be found below.


Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg comments, “We’ve been locked up in the studio since the end of the summer working on our next studio album and decided we needed to take a break and go out and play some shows. In the summer of 2016 we did an acoustic summer tour in Finland which was a lot of fun for both us and our fans; in fact it was so great that we wanted to do it again and this time we’re not settling for just Finland – but taking this show all around Europe for the first time ever. Now is a unique chance to hear our music in a completely different setting and we’re sure these evenings will be something really special. Our set will also include some stuff we’ve never played live before, and who knows maybe even a new song from the upcoming album. See you at the shows!”

Following their release of the monumental ‘Támsins likam‘ on Metal Blade Records earlier in the year, and after touring Central Europe extensively, Faroese Doom Metal act Hamferð will embark on an exclusive tour of Scandinavia. This includes their very first visit to Sweden after 8 years of international touring.


Singer Jón Aldará adds: “Doing a proper tour for our neighbours in the North has been on our wish-list for a long time now. We are thrilled that it is finally happening, and that we have been able to include Sweden. Not having played there yet is close to being a tragedy. Also, going back to Norway and Denmark is a treat, since they have always been incredibly kind to us. There’s no denying that we have a close cultural bond with our Nordic brothers and sisters, so this tour will be a special experience without a doubt.


Joining them on tour will be Faroese blackened doomsters Svartmálm, who released their scorching eponymous debut album in February this year.

Michael Schenker is one of the most significant rock guitarists in the history of music. He has mesmerised the rock community since the 70’s with his characteristic guitar playing style and solidified his place in music history writing hits like ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Rock Bottom’ during his time in UFO, as well as composing SCORPIONS classics such as ‘Coast To Coast’ and ‘Holiday’, among others. His playing has proved influential for several generations of guitar players.


Back in 1979, the ‘German Wunderkind’ decided that he wanted to be his own boss. He founded the MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP aka M.S.G. and released masterpieces such as »Assault Attack« and »Built To Destroy«, the live legacy »One Night At Budokan« as well as the McAULEY SCHENKER GROUP pearls »Perfect Timing« and »Save Yourself«M.S.G. also became a home for some great vocalists, including Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet (ex-RAINBOW etc.) and Robin McAuley. Those guys were also a part of the comprehensive MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST, whose celebrated Tokyo show was released as live CD, DVD and Blu-ray in March 2017. Now the time has come for Michael Schenker to move another step forward: by releasing the new MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST studio album, he fulfils the long-awaited dream of all hard rock fans!

16. February 2018

Today Neal Morse released his new solo album “Life & Times” on Radiant Records (Metal Blade Records / Sony Music), both digitally and as CD and LP.


Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading prog rock musicians, there is now no doubt that Neal’s desire to continue to move people through his music burns brighter than ever.

Now in his mid-fifties and his children grown up, there is a sense on LIFE & TIMES that MORSE is looking around and taking stock.


Neal Morse is hoping to move more people with these songs at some “absolutely solo” shows in cafes and small venues throughout Europe in June 2018:

PRIMORDIAL announces new album ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins’ for March 30th!

19. January 2018

Irish Pagan Metal Gods PRIMORDIAL announces their new album ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins‘ for a March 30 release through Metal Blade Records.

Teaming with producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on PRIMORDIAL‘s 2016 live album ‘Gods To The Godless‘, the record was tracked at Dublin’s Camelot Studios, located adjacent to their rehearsal room.

Surf over to to check out the video for the first single ‘Stolen Years’. At the same location you can pre-order ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins‘ in the following formats:


Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014’s ‘Where Greater Men Have Fallen‘ is a more raw, “old school sounding” record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as “a direct energy” and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins‘ is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.


Commenting about the album’s first single, ‘Stolen Years’, A.A. Nemtheanga added: “‘Stolen Years’ may seem like a strange choice as our lead single, and on the face of if I guess it is. It’s not a blood and thunder epic about tragedy and might and the ruin of nations, nor is it 9 minute epistle of doom. Have no fear, the album does contain those also but to open this time we chose something different. This album has some surprises and this is one of them, a short and painfully simple song which almost didn’t make the final cut if you can believe so. The video, cut by Costin Chioreanu, is about the journey involved in finally getting to that moment where you walk on stage, the song itself about that last night on earth that comes to us all, sometimes we never know when that might be, hold your loved ones tight tonight, this could be it…


Exile Amongst The Ruins‘ track listing:
1. Nail Their Tongues
2. To Hell or the Hangman
3. Where Lie the Gods
4. Exile Amongst the Ruins
5. Upon Our Spiritual Deathbed
6. Stolen Years
7. Sunken Lungs
8. Last Call


To coincide with the album release the Irishmen have just announced two special and rather intimate album-release shows in Germany as well as their appearance on the ‘Heathen Crusade’ European tour with Finnish MOONSORROW as co-headliners and German DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT as support act!

Regular updates on


Comments PRIMORDIAL: “Twelve years after the original Heathen Crusade and in truth way too long we will go back on tour with Moonsorrow. A lot has changed in the world since then, more scars, more hangovers, deeper lines in our faces, but nothing changes our spiritual bond. Heathens to the bitter end and worse hangovers as we pace ‘til death!”


Comments MOONSORROW: “With great pleasure we announce a European tour with our good friends Primordial! With these Irish fellows we had our first ever European tour in 2006. And it feels like just a few years back! Moonsorrow and Primordial always had a spiritual bond, something that makes a special line up for a tour. Don’t miss this rare chance to catch us on the same tour!”


Comments DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT: “As big fans of Primordial ourselves it’s with great pleasure to announce that we are supporting the Irish legends on this tour along with Moonsorrow. We appreciate the chance to be part of this great package and can’t wait to present our album “Finisterre” to new audiences all around Europe. Get your tickets now and see you in April!“

We are supporting METAL UNITED WORLD WIDE!

27. November 2017

Metal United World Wide (MUWW) is a project which brings together metal bands, fans, show organisers, media and other supporters for one big event. The idea is to have metal shows all over the world on the same date identified by the same banner. Everybody can be part and shows are individually organised. The aim is to create a world wide feeling of community as well as attract attention to the performing bands, predominantly from the underground.


37 countries have joined so far and MUWW is represented at all continents except Antarctica. Besides some of the traditional metal countries like Germany, the US and Canada, a range of exotic metal communities got on board. Zimbabwe, Algeria, Papua New Guinea, Mongolia and Kenya are not the usual suspects when it comes to metal and certainly enrich this community project. The most surprising country joining recently, however, was war-torn Syria with a show in Damaskus.

Participating is without charge. Get in touch with who are coordinating the project and get on board!

You’ll find further information on the website
