121522Running high on gasoline, stoner and good old sex, drugs & rock’n’roll – heading straight for sundown on a bunch of post-apocalyptic choppers! The barren wastelands of Victoria, Australia provides Zombie Motors Wrecking Yard with the ideal background, and if that gets boring, there`s always crappy exploitation B-movies on TV. These Galactic Motherfuckers might have heard of Red Fang, ZZ Top, Clutch, Black Label Society and so forth, but then the merry bunch decided to spice things up with nasty Ministry-style grooves and dirtiest Sci-Fi. Their debut Supersonic Rock`n`Roll is a giant baseball bat to Godzilla`s ugly maw, we kid you not!

A smashing debut from the Australian desert!
CLUTCH & KYUSS-style grooves & campy Sci-Fi combined with the good old sex, drugs & rock’n’ roll attitude.

After their critically acclaimed number 1-CHART-album „Preachers of the night“ POWERWOLF are back with their the new masterpiece „Blessed & possessed“. The density of hits and anthems on their sixth epic is nearly unchristianly – firing hit after hit. The Mystic and bombastic title track “Blessed & possessed” enthralls the listener from the beginning and leads to a top-flight direction, by presenting metal hymns with emotiveness and pure magic. POWERWOLF are bursting with imagination, they have cultivated their well proven trademarks and deliver first class Power Metal („Dead until dark“), the finest Speed Metal („Christ & combat“), great Hard Rock trips („Sacramental sister“) and even orchestral madness („Let there be night“).

Portuguese pioneers Moonspell first brought the dark flames to their native country – and then set the rest of the world aflame with milestones such as Irreligious or Night Eternal. Indeed eleventh studio album Extinct erects another monument to sundowns and those dark hours and lets Fernando Ribeiro`s sombre vocals collide with modern riffing, blackened melodies and operatic grandeur. Always one step ahead of the rest, always resisting all genre boundaries! This will set the world aflame! Another monument by Portuguese Dark Metal pioneers! 11th Studio Album from the Portuguese Dark Metal Masters.

Gloomy riffs, catchy grooves and choruses that resurrect a flair of “The Walking Dead” – welcome to “Zombieland”! In the realm of the undead, there’s only one who rules: “Megaherz” singer Alex “Lex” Wohnhaas, acting as a zombie hunter and specialist for melodramatic songs that scrump souls of fans. With Lex at the epicenter of a metaphysical bustle, “Zombieland” sounds like the epitome of Rock music that has become awake. As sensitive and intelligent as his lyrics are, they are also so magical and eerie, which is showcased on the new songs: “Megaherz” are back – stronger than ever – and prove with “Zombieland” that they are still among the most exciting and leading German rock bands in recent years!

This album definitely is larger than even Liv Kristine herself might be aware of by now. She has established a world-wide career. Moreover, she was nominated for the Grammy Award. Liv has sold upwards of 500,000 records with Theatre of Tragedy, toured through more than 40 countries on five continents, and has charted consistently with Leaves’ Eyes, Theatre of Tragedy, and as a solo artist. Now, Liv Kristine has created VERVAIN! Liv Kristine’s fifth solo album unfolds as a dark rock masterpiece assembling terrific melodies, enthralling song structures and a world class voice – all captured in an incomparable premium sound. Deliberately, the singer bethinks herself of the musical strengths that made her famous as the epicenter of the legendary Theatre of Tragedy. In cooperation with talented musicians she now delivers her greatest production ever. Haunting tunes, imaginative instrumentation and extraordinary creativity unite into the finest piece of music art eternalized in a perfect sound production. Never before, the Norwegian vocalist has seduced ears and minds under the cloak of such a variety of characters – all of them torn between darkness and light. “My Wilderness” is a brilliant rock song and the perfect opener for the album. In “Love Decay”, a soon-to-be gothic hit, two longing vampires crave for love in a passionate duet between Liv and End of Green’s Michelle Darkness. Driven by energetic rock beats, her haunting and angel-like voice on “Hunters” only gives a glimpse of what a femme fatale is able to do with men.

Contrary to this, the fragile and vulnerable “Lotus” makes you melt, displaying as a heart-breaking elegy of loneliness. The fateful instrumentation of “Creeper” seems to soak a doomed Liv Kristine into decay ironically. A highlight solely by the combination of these two singers, the tailor-made duet “Stronghold of Angels” with legendary Doro Pesch merges both so unequal voices just naturally, as if they had been singing together all their lives. The variety of VERVAIN seems to be the outcome of different gifted song writers – which it is not! However, all the songs share the same intriguing atmosphere only the original Theatre of Tragedy-songs knew to create. What better occasion is there to present VERVAIN live than the “The Sirens” tour of gothic metal legends Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes, ex-Theatre of Tragedy), Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) and Kari Rueslåtten (ex-The 3rd And The Mortal)? VERVAIN is a true gift for myriads of her followers who have been following Liv Kristine’s career since the golden times with Theatre of Tragedy!
