TROLLFEST – Digital release for „A Decade Of Drekkadence – 10 Years Anniversary“ on January 15th

The new year has not yet arrived, but there is also some reason to party: Scandinavian TROLLFEST will release their anniversary album “A Decade Of Drekkadence – 10 year anniversary“ digitally on January 15th.
The album is a self-released LP the band brought out in 2013. Its a compilation album including some cover songs, b-tracks, early demos and acoustic songs. „So far it has been available as a limited picture LPs, but this picture disc is now more or less sold out“, the band says, “so we will make the album available digitally. We thought it ´s a nice way to make it available for all fans.“
It will be the first time this album is officially released on a digital way. So make yourself ready and visit iTunes, Musicload or whatever from mid January on!

FROSTTIDE – Will release their new record on 27th February – cover artwork ready

Finnish FROSTTIDE will release a new album on February 27th via Noiseart Records. It is entitled „Blood Oath“ and will be the next step to their 2013 debut.

This has led to better compositions and arranging. The album follows the same air as “Awakening” as these are both connected. But this is all taken to the next level! It is going to be aggressive, heavy, melodic, bombastic and with very deep and beautiful atmospheres.”

Also, the band kept their trademark and returned with another concept album: “When recording “Awakening” we decided to make a set of brother albums. We saved one song from “Awakening” to be on the second record. So, even though this is our second record, we decided to base the lyrics on the story that occurred before “Awakening”. Making this a prequel. The story allows the listener to know where everything originated and what led to the arrogant and greedy attitude that can be seen in the protagonist of “Awakening”.”

The cover artwork is ready by now – have look. The band will be on Paganfest tour in March.

SKULL FIST – about to tour the USA

Skull Fist, the band of moderately psychotic brothers have spent the last 3 years in buses, vans, cars, planes, trains and automobiles touring their brains out in the name of freedom. They have gone from basements to bars, bars to clubs and clubs to concert halls solely because they just can’t stop and won’t stop rocking. After the release of the 2nd album “Chasing the Dream” in January it is ironic these fools of the road have toured Europe, UK, Japan, South America, Mexico, and Canada many times over but have never stepped foot in the USA over the years. The freedom fighters will be coming to the land of the free in January 2015 set with a ton of dates and two seriously rippin bands. Elm Street from Australia who happen to rock harder then Chopper Reed and Night Demon from the USA who have been conquering dreams of their own in the mother land USA.
The tour will consist of 3 bands totalling approx 15 seriously serious unserious nut jobs who plan to ruin the stage every night for the purpose of feeling the feeling.
