Founded in 2011 in Modena, Italy and fronted by emotional vocalist Federica Lanna, Symphonic metallers SLEEPING ROMANCE have joined forces with legendary metal and hard rock label, Napalm Records and signed a worldwide record deal!
Napalm Records on the brand new signing:
“We are proud to announce the worldwide signing with SLEEPING ROMANCE! Here’s a young band that mystifies listeners with atmospheric melodies over darkened dynamics, creating an undeniably epic wall of sound. We are sure you will be just as impressed when you hear the upcoming album! Welcome to the Napalm Family.”
Federico Truzzi (guitars) states:
"We are really excited about this new co-operation and adventure with Napalm Records, without a doubt one of the best labels in the industry. We all consider it a great opportunity in our professional lives and an amazing step forward for the band. We are so thankful for this new agreement and we will do our best to grow as musicians and as a band.”
InsideOutMusic recently announced the signing of Steve Hackett and Agents of Mercy vocalist Nad Sylvan to their roster, and now he is pleased to reveal his new solo album is titled ‘Courting The Widow’, and will be released 16th October 2015 in Europe and 30th October 2015 in the US. You can see the cover artwork for it above, and the full track-listing below:
1. Carry Me Home
2. Courting The Widow
3. Echoes Of Ekwabet
4. To Turn The Other Side
5. Ship’s Cat
6. The Killing Of The Calm
7. Where The Martyr Carved His Name
8. Long Slow Crash Landing
Nad had this to say about the album: "During these past years with Steve Hackett, I have developed a character known as the "Vampirate". I have here set him loose, and so he has invited you all on-board his great ship, to take you on a musical journey you have never been on before.
The main character - the widow herself, is a symbol of death - and is to be courted through every song, one way or another. It is indeed a dark album, but full of loving light"
UK rock n’ roller FEDERAL CHARM will release their new album, “Across The Divide“, on October 2 via Wire-Sound/Cargo Records. The follow-up to 2013’s debut album is being produced by Jon Green & Federal Charm. The blistering lead-off track, ‘Hercules‘, will lead the charge and is to be released as a digital download on 14 September 2015.
Drawing from a deep well, spanning the classic rock curve from the Allman Brothers to Zeppelin, with the indie blues of The Black Keys and the contemporary bluster of Rival Sons, FEDERAL CHARM are full of melodic twin-guitar twists and stop-start rhythms. Their fresh direction has turned many an industry head, describing the band as having the most cutting-edge sound in recent years.
The Maltese gothic/doom metal outfit WEEPING SILENCE is going to release its new album "Opus IV Oblivion" in late October!
The band has now revealed the album artwork, created by Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove). The artwork concept is based and inspired by the funerary tomb art at the St. John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta, Malta.
The band stated:
"The cover artwork is intricately woven with the lyrical theme of the album and reflects the title itself. Malta has a rich cultural heritage that left its mark on funerary art, which inspired the band. The album revolves around the themes of life and death, uncertainty and human disrespect for life on earth. The cover depicts death stopping time within the context of an artwork dotted with symbolism."

01. Ultima Ratio Regis
02. Das Große Gericht

The Art Gates Records team is proud to announce Heresy of Dreams as the new artist to join the label's rooster.

Good news for CORONATUS fans!
The German gothic/symphonic metal band will enter the Klangschmiede Studio E in late August to record their 7th studio album "Raben Im Herz" with Markus Stock!
Markus will also take care of the album's mix and mastering, whereas Jan Yrlund (Darkgrove) is going to create the album's artwork.
Drummer Mats comments: "This time we decided to use a German title for our album - mostly, because the majority of our songs are already in German and we know that it gets a bit old, when you always use two Latin words as an album title.
The new songs will feature even more instrumental parts, which also changed our songwriting process: Our previous songs mostly consisted of up to 90% vocals, which turned out to be a bit limiting for us.
Now, with additional instrumental parts, the songs will be more varied and it's also more fun for us to play them.
There will also be a few changes in store for Anny and Carmen, who will both use a broader vocal range on the new record.
This album will rock!"
"Marschmusik" is out now!
Vocalist M. Roth stated the following about the album:
"Eisregen, war and death - all this has already been an unholy coalition in the past, and classic songs like "Eisenkreuzkrieger" or "Tod Senkt Sich Herab" prove it. MARSCHMUSIK features a huge amount of songs whose lyrics deal with themes of war - a combination of lyrics, music and layout that has never been more haunting. An album as destructive as a Panzerfaust."
In an interview with EMP's Music Mag, M. Roth also said that Yantit once again took care of the main songwriting, whereas M. Roth was responsible for the lyrical concept and its realization. Both then worked on all arrangements.
