AKREA – Lyricvideo zu “Schleier aus Blüten” online; neues Album “Stadt der toten Träume” im August!

 

AKREA haben sich innerhalb weniger Jahre einen absoluten Ausnahmestatus in der Szene erarbeitet. Mit ihrer sehr eigenständigen Mischung aus verspieltem und detailverliebtem, aber trotzdem stets auf den Punkt gebrachtem Melo-Death Metal schwedischer Prägung mit markanten deutschen Texten schicken sie sich nun mit ihrem dritten Album „Stadt der toten Träume“ anno 2013 an, die deutsche Oberliga der metallischen Klangschmiede endgültig gewaltsam zu erstürmen.

Nun haben AKREA haben ein wirklich sehenswertes Lyricvideo zu dem brandeuen Song “Schleier aus Blüten” fertig gestellt, den es hier zu sehen gibt:

Der Song ist der erste Vorbote des neuen AKREA Albums “Stadt der toten Träume”, das am 02.08.2013 über Drakkar/Sony erscheint.

Die ersten Pressestimmern sind äußerst positiv:

“Das dritte Album der eigenständigen deutschen Talente! Melodic Death Metal vom Feinsten, einfallsreich und gekonnt – eine prächtig groß gewachsene Kollektion aus 13 schnell mitreißenden Songs! ”
EMP

“Mit dem Drittwerk »Stadt der toten Träume« geht man nun einen Stück weiter. Etwas weg vom Geschwindigkeitsrausch der frühen Tage, hin zu echten Songs mit mehr Substanz und Hooks. Und natürlich Melodien en Masse.”
BLAST!

AKREA sind bei folgenden Terminen live zu sehen;

29.06.13 – Rumpsteak Fest – Leups
13.07.13 – Rock Harz Open Air – Ballenstedt

ZODIAC – Debut album “A Bit of Devil” to be released May 25h, 2012!

The bluesdriven rock band ZODIAC celebrates the 70s spirit without neglecting the musical development since then. Drummer Janosch Rathmer (also playing in Long Distance Calling) and supreme guitarist/singer Nick Van Delft started jamming in 2010. They soon found a common sense for the project that should become ZODIAC. Guitarist Stephan Gall (Rocketchief) and Robert Kahr (Rocketchief) on bass and organs completed the line-up short time later.

The four musicians quickly grew together as a unit, sharing the same musical horizon and passion for playing, so that in 2011 their first EP was recorded. This first impression got a stunning feedback (demo of the month in Visons and Rock Hard Germany, CD feature in Classic Rock Magazine UK and features in many well known online blogs) and the first edition was sold out in 3 weeks. A limited vinyl edition will be available in March!

This encouraged the band to hit the studio again in early 2012 to record their first LP. This full length album that goes by the name “A Bit Of Devil” combines all the elements that make ZODIAC: soulful guitars, energetic drums, bluesy riffs and charismatic vocals!

You have some straight forward rock songs with nice twin guitars (A Bit Of Devil, Carnival, Assembly Line) as well as bluesdriven songs like the passionate ZZ TOP-Cover „Blue Jean Blues“ or the extraordinary „Thunder“! The final song „Coming Home“ combines all the elements ZODIAC stands for in a ten minutes long track!

The excellent sound created by veteran sound engineer Martin Meinschaefer (Henrik Freischlader) recorded at the Megaphon Tonstudios fits perfect to the music. It is warm, natural and big without being typical retro. It’s just a good recording and can easily come up to the standard of the big names!

Besides their recording activities ZODIAC concentrated on doing what they could do best: hitting the stage and bringing their songs to everyone who likes well played and handmade rock music. Doing so, they had the chance to join the stage with acts like Graveyard and Church of Misery. But there will follow more shows, tours and festivals. The variety of their music allows them to play rock/metal shows as well as blues festivals!

So for fans of all the classic acts like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy or the new names like Black Country Communion, Joe Bonamassa and even Graveyard ZODIAC should be an exciting band to discover.

A Bit of Devil“ will be out on 2012/05/25
on Honest Hound Records/Cargo

PETTER CARLSEN – “Clocks Dont´t Count” to be released May 25th 2012

From Alta, far up in Northern Norway, comes singer and music maker Petter Carlsen. His debut album “You Go Bird” was released in august 2009. The music is atmospheric and melodic. In January 2011, he released his new album “Clocks Don’t Count” in Norway, which was awarded 5/6 in 10 Norwegian Newspapers and received a warm welcoming amongst his fans. Now the time has come to release this album in Europe. Petter has teamed up with the UK indie label Function Records (functionrecords.com). The date for the album release is May 25.

Singer Vincent Cavanagh from Anathema (UK) contributes on the song “Built to Last”, and singer songwriter Unni Wilhelmsen from Norway sings with Petter on “Table for One”.

”once I heard Petter Carlsen’s incredible voice and beautiful songwriting, as well as his warm personality, I always felt that he would be connected to and part of the inner circle of Anathema for a long time to come. Quite apart from being a great friend, he is one of the most talented musicians I have ever met in my life.”
– Danny Cavanagh, Anathema.

Petter has been the opening act on Anathemas last european tour (late 2010 and early 2011). 55 gigs in 15 countries.

This is what the Norwegian press said about “Clocks Don’t Count”:

“The amazing voice from the north”

- AVISA NORDLAND

“Petter Carlsen has an unique ability to write songs that captivate you”

- Harstad Tidende

“To those of you who have never heard Petter, I envy you this opportunity to get to know him for the first time.”

- Norskmusikk.org

“Magic from Petter Carlsen”

- Altaposten

“”Clocks Don’t Count” stands out from the crowd” -

Rana Blad

DEZPERADOZ – New album “Dead Man´s Hand”!

DEZPERADOZ…..Ennio Morricone meet`s metal

An uniquely crossover between heavy rock and western-sounds, invented and started by Alex Kraft (Onkel Tom, Sodom). Originally formed as a project with Tom Angelripper (Sodom, Onkel Tom) on vocals, Dezperadoz turned out to be a real band long ago.

Alex Kraft, singer, guitarist, songwriter and his Dezperadoz are filling a gap in the music world by transferring the rough feeling of the good old Italo-western movies into today`s world of rock / metal.

After the first strike “Dawn of Dying” (2000, Drakkar Records) which earned a lot of positive reviews, Alex Kraft decided to take over the lead vocal part after a longer break and some lineup changes.

2006, DEZPERADOZ released the second record “The Legend and the Truth”, a concept-album about the life of the western legend Wyatt Earp. Produced by Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) the album, which features Tobias Sammet, Michael Weikath, Doro and others for some speaking parts, was released by AFM Records and followed by some support-tours and festival shows.

2008, the third opus “An Eye for an Eye”, again a concept-album, was released.

It tells the story about a man on the death row back in 1898, a faithful and religious man who killed his friend for revenge and condemned to death by the state. Once more this album is produced By Dennis Ward and released by AFM Records.

Support shows for acts such as Krokus, Gotthard, Thin Lizzy, Rage, Sodom, Doro, Volbeat, U.D.O, Tesla and many others, shows that DEZPERADOZ is not just another stereotypic band and able to impress different types of audiences.

Festival shows like Wacken, With Full Force, Earthshaker, Summer Breeze and others are done as well as gigs and touring through Europe and Russia.

2012, with a new record-deal signed by the old companions Drakkar-Records, the fourth album “Dead Man’s Hand” will be released as well as a reissue of the first record “Dawn of Dying” inkl. a bonus track.

Yippie Ya Yeah!
