PYRAMAZE: „A WORLD DIVIDED“ MUSIC VIDEO RELEASED

The melodic metal band PYRAMAZE just released a music video for the track „A World Divided“ from their highly anticipated new album „Contingent“. The album will be released on April 28th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.

Link to the music video: https://youtu.be/CKERGAAWS9E

With their milestone fifth album „Contingent,“ Pyramaze have grown and matured into a band that is capable of satisfying their fans while simultaneously continuing to break new ground. The incorporation of modern cinematic film score elements mixed with progressive metal riffs and melodies will leave the listener breathless! Huge, sweeping, hard-hitting, and poignant, „Contingent“ is an epic post-apocalyptic conceptual piece inspired by current events, the human spirit to overcome struggle and diversity, and the brotherhood that lies there in. Produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica, Evergrey].

„Divided by oceans, bound together by brotherhood, we must become that which divides us…. we are PYRAMAZE, and we are the Ocean!“

AOR HEAVEN sign Swedish Melodic Rock band STORMBURST, debut album to be released on May 26th, 2017!

AOR Heaven are happy to announce the signing of Swedish Melodic Rock band STORMBURST! The band consisting of bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam), guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline), singer Lars-Åke ”Plåtis” Nilsson (Keen Hue),  keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) and drummer Peter ”Zeke” Ytterberg (Keen Hue, Moonshine Highway) will release their debut album “Raised On Rock” on May 26th, 2017.

The PR for this release will start tomorrow via Haulix!

Product: Stormburst – Raised On Rock

Release date: May 26th, 2017

Label: AOR Heaven

PR: info@germusica.com

The band STORMBURST was formed in July 2014.  The original intention just was to make high quality music, have fun, and do what you believe in and without any musical compromises. No more covers, just self-composed material.

     stormburst-cover-web

Bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam) and  guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline) started with singer Lars-Åke ”Plåtis” Nilsson (Keen Hue). To get the special sound that they wanted, they sent the keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) a demo, who believed completely into the idea and joined immediately. Later on they recruited the hard hitting drummer Peter ”Zeke” Ytterberg (Keen Hue, Moonshine Highway) to complete the line-up.

The band’s name STORMBURST has the intention of uncompromisingly doing what you believe in even if you have a headwind. Even if the wind blows hard in life sometimes, is the love of music in all conditions strong and sustainable. STORMBURST is the ability to reflect it with music and lyrics. Their style can be described as Melodic Hard Rock & AOR.

The band is based in the heartland of Sweden, Dalarna, all the songs were written by Kent, Thomas and Lars-Åke. The composing and demo recordings of all tracks were done in the home studio of Lars-Åke in Vansbro to subsequently present them to the rest of the band.

The result, the debut album “Raised To Rock”, was mainly recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Bakery, Äppelbo by Jonas Tornemalm between January and February 2017. The recordings of strings were made at the Royal College of Music (KMH) in Stockholm during the same period of time.

„Raised On Rock“ is a tribute to all musical heroes the members in the STORMBURST grew up with.

Product: Rockett Love – Grab The Rocket

Release date: 28.04.2017

Label: AOR Heaven

PR in Europe: info@germusica.com

After only one song on iTunes and Spotify and without any commercial backup, Swedish Melodic Rock band ROCKETT LOVE received a great deal of radio time and a fully seated venue playing their debut gig. The song “Rocket Love” had a big viral spin when Beau Hill took the song to his studio and produced it.

      

The band started in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Daniel Samuelsson met guitarist Stefan Westerlund at a local reunion concert. Fueled by mutual interest in 80’s rock, the two began recording original material in Daniel’s studio. ‘It became clear right away that we had something worthwhile after the first couple of songs’ says Daniel, ‘Stefan and me just clicked, and we knew the time was right to bring back this classic sound with a touch of modern production. The two began working on the EP “The best is yet to come” and contacted lead guitarist Gustav Eklund. He gave ROCKETT LOVE the tone and energy with his magic fingers that you only here in the great masters such as Michael Schenker and Gary Moore. Four songs were recorded, and the project emerged into a band. Bass player Dennis Vestman (Grand Design, Steel Attack) and drummer Fredrik Ahlin completed the group’s line-up. Fredrik and Daniel had a history as musical friends in both Sour System and Slip Into Silk.

With the band being complete and some new songs recorded ROCKETT LOVE entered the stage at Rockland, Sweden. Together with Grand Design they sold out the venue and the viral spin began. They had a really great song and sound in form of the track ‘Rocket Love’. The song traveled to the USA and was mixed there by Beau Hill. ROCKETT LOVE released ‘Rocket Love’ on various digital platforms in June 2016. With several gigs and a fast-growing audience the Swedes hit the studio to record their full debut album “Grab The Rockett” in Autumn/ Winter 2016. Halfway through the studio session ROCKETT LOVE contacted Studio Haga and met up with the young producer Christian Svedin. He had the ears, the courage and the stamina to lift the band even more. The process in the studio shaped the tone of the band to what and where ROCKETT LOVE is today, and after almost a year of writing, recording and producing the album “Grab The Rocket” now is ready to show the world what good Hard Rock music is all about.

     vandroya-cover-web

2001 gegründet, begannen Vandroya als eine Gruppe von jungen Musikern, die alle sehr leidenschaftlich auf Heavy Metal standen. Anfänglich konzentrierten sie sich auf das Spielen von Coverversionen der Bands, die sie inspiriert hatten. Dadurch erlangten sie eine zunehmende Bedeutung in der Metal-Szene in Brasilien und führte zu ihrem ersten  Demo. Die EP „Within Shadows“ wurde 2005 veröffentlicht und steigerte den Bekanntheitsgrad von Vandroya in ihrem Heimatland immens.

Beim schwedischen Label Inner Wound Recordings unterschrieb die Band einen Plattenvertrag für Europa und Nordamerika und bei Spiritual Beast für Japan. Das Debütalbum „One“ wurde Anfang 2013 veröffentlicht. Es erhielt in Brasilien und weltweit hervorragendes Feedback und wurde oft als eine perfekte Mischung von Bands wie Angra, Kamelot und Symphony X tituliert.

Das langersehnte neue Werk, „Beyond The Human Mind“, soll am 28. April erscheinen. Mit einem klareren progressiven Einfluss, aber ohne das Gewicht und die Virtuosität des Power Metal aufzugeben, zeigt die CD eine ausgereiftere Band, bietet einen ausgewogeneren Sound und spiegelt die technische und künstlerische Weiterentwicklung der Musiker seit „One“ wider.

Das Albumkonzept thematisiert die Reise, die wir alle auf der Suche nach Fülle, innerem Frieden und uns selbst durchmachen. Das Album-Artwork wurde wieder von Felipe Machado Franco [Blind Guardian, Rhapsody Of Fire, Iced Earth] erstellt.

Daísa Munhoz und Vandroya sind bereit, den nächsten Schritt zu machen und in der Metal-Szene mit „Beyond The Human Mind“ ein Zeichen zu setzen!
