Power Metal – Silver Talon Announce Debut Album For Fall

Heavy metal warriors Silver Talon took the torch in 2017 from the remnants of the traditional metal band Spellcaster. Their brand of metal is a classic-minded blend of speed, power, thrash and progressive metal, and is more over-the-top than its precursor.

The band have confirmed the title for their upcoming full-length album as Decadence and Decay, which is set for release this Fall.

Guitarist Bryce VanHoosen on the upcoming album:

The songs are more complicated, more progressive, more aggressive, and there’s more guitar solos and crazier vocal harmonies [than Spellcaster].

Silver Talon released an EP, Becoming a Demon, in 2018. It was highly acclaimed by critics, landing them shows with the likes of Evergrey, Warbringer, Enforcer, Exmortus, Unleash The Archers, Striker, The Absence, Powerglove, Savage Master, Vital Remains and Hatchet.

Symphonic Metal: Apocalyptica Release New Single Featuring Joakim Broden

Cello-centered symphonic metallers Apocalyptica have been closely collaborating with Swedish heavyweights Sabaton since last year, when they released their own single version of the Sabaton song ‘Fields of Verdun’.

Since then, the two have toured together, as well as released another collaboration in the track ‘Angels Calling’.

Continuing this trend, the band has released a new original song featuring the talents of iconic frontman Joakim Broden, called ‘Live or Die’.

Killer chorus, right?

Melodic Metal: New Single From Volturian

Volturian is a new melodic metal band formed by Frozen Crown’s founder/songwriter/guitarist Federico Mondelli and Federica Lanna of Sleeping Romance. The band’s debut album, Crimson, is set for a 24 April release under Scarlet Records.

‘New Life’ features the first taste of Volturian’s sound: slow-paced, heavily-electronic metal with floating vocal melodies and syncopated guitar rhythms.

Volturian describe their sound as suitable for fans of early-00s In Flames, Soilwork, and Amaranthe. Based on this single, I’d say that’s more-or-less an accurate assumption.

01. Crimson Dust
02. New Life
03. Haunting Symphony
04. Broken
05. The Killing Joke
06. In a Heartbeat (feat Giada “Jade” Etro)
07. Between the Sleepers
08. Days Before You Died
09. Forevermore
10. Fading Like a Flower (Roxette cover)

Symphonic Metal: New ‘Noise’ From Nightwish

Symphonic metal titans Nightwish have released the first new single to their upcoming album. ‘Noise’ is quite obviously a commentary on modern society and, while I find it a touch pretentious, it’s a pretty good track.

Sorta reminds me how Imaginaerum would sound if it had Floor Jansen on vocals rather than Anette Olzon.

Oh, speaking of pretentious, the title of Nightwish’s ninth album is Hvman. :II: Natvre.. I’m not saying I’m not excited, because any new Nightwish release is worthy to me, but, come on. I can’t just ignore something like that.

01. Music
02. Noise
03. Shoemaker
04. Harvest
05. Pan
06. How’s the Heart?
07. Procession
08. Tribal
09. Endlessness

The album will be released on 10 April. If the rest of it sounds as good as this single, it’ll be a powerhouse!

Power Metal: Immortal Guardian Begin Recording New Album

Immortal Guardian released their widely-acclaimed debut, Age of Revolution, in 2018. They took the US power metal scene by storm with their self-branded “super metal”, which combines elements of prog, power melodeath to create an over-the-top, epic intensity.

The band recently announced that they are beginning the work on their sophomore effort.

While the details remain hidden, it is set for a Fall release.

Brazilian-born vocalist Carlos Zema on the album:
“This is a very different album from our previous releases in that there’s a wide range of emotions involved. We’ve experienced our fair share of loss since the last release and a lot of life lessons were poured into this album, giving it a very real and personal vibe. From a technical vocal aspect, this is the first album I’ve ever recorded where I’ve spanned five octaves as a singer, and I’m excited for the world to hear the message and sound we’ve created together as a group.”

Guitarist/Keyboardist Gabriel Guardian:
“The recording process has been interesting to say the least. Working with a drummer over 2,000 miles away has its obstacles, but Justin and his drum engineer Jesse Zito made the experience way smoother than we imagined. Thanks to technology, video calls and hundreds of back-and-forth messages, we pulled off something that wouldn’t have been possible years ago. We’re incredibly proud of the new material and are looking forward to wrapping up the final mix with Joshua and getting some new music out for all the Guardians to hear!”
