Trollfest – to release new album „Norwegian Fairytales“ on January 18th, 2019!

25. October2018

Terol

It’s shortly after Christmas, that trollish activities are at their highest, so prepare for some tiny people to deliver “Norwegian Fairytales” to you on January 18th, 2019.
Oslo’s folkish madmen TROLLFEST are back with a bag full of hymns and what would be a better thematical choice for their eighth album than than a concept based on various Norwegian myths and legends?

TROLLFEST states:
„With „Norwegian Fairytales“ we wanted to do something we have never done before, embracing Norwegian Folk-music and Norwegian Folk-lore. When we started this project, we had no idea how difficult it would be to combine Norwegian Folk-melodies together with our Balkan-influences, but after one year of trial and error we ended up with 11 killer tracks and we can’t wait to share this with the rest of the world. „Norwegian Fairytales“ is 100% “True Norwegian Balkan Metal”!“

With eight full-length releases since their inception in 2004, the trollish powerhouse has constantly kept their fans busy with new music and unrivalled live shows, but this time the lyrics on beer orgies performed in their unique “Trollspråk” have made room to the more ambitious topics and legends that the band wisely chose from their ancestral books and performs in Norwegian language.

But fear not, little party goblins! With still tons of high quality entertainment, humour and unbound energy left, TROLLFEST keep their status as the craziest band in the folk metal forest!

Virgin Steele – anniversary box set

22. October 2018

virg

Virgin Steele will release special box set Seven Devils Moonshine on 3. November. It will be contains 5 CD – 3 new albums, 2 re-released classics albums.

From David DeFeis: Cheers, Greetings & Salutations Dear Ever Faithful Eternal Metal Listeners and Friends of the Musical Realm & Written Word Domain! I am putting pen to paper today to inform you all about what we have been doing over the past year and what this Box-Set you are now holding in your hands is all about, its backstory…how we arrived here at this place, and perhaps a bit more about where we might be heading.  
As some of you may know we have been re-issuing the VIRGIN STEELE Catalogue bit by bit over the past several years, and in doing so we have consistently been adding copious amounts of Bonus Material to accompany all these various re-issue offerings. The last two albums scheduled as part of the re-issue campaign we began, are the albums: THE BOOK OF BURNING & HYMNS TO VICTORY. When those two albums first appeared they were released simultaneously, therefore we thought why not once again issue them at the exact same time, but…this time let’s include a brand new album and create a kind of Box Set package. Well…once we began planning and recording for such an endeavor we very soon accumulated far more material than what could possibly fit on one disc…so…we thought OK fine…we’ll plan on releasing two new discs chock full of new material to go along with these last two re-issues…and…shortly after that decision was made, we managed to record even more new material, so now we have in addition to the two re-issues, (which by the way do contain one bonus track each), well Friends we now have actually three brand new discs of VS material included within this special Box Set release!  
I wish to stress the fact that what we have done here with our Box Set is include 3 brand new albums, not bundle in merely a collection of old bonus tracks we had hanging around for ages and ages… These 3 new discs contain either brand new original songs written and recorded within just these past few months, or brand new re-written covers of songs that we enjoy and felt could be re-cast in the VS style, or…new recordings of classic VS material done either in a special orchestral type setting or stripped way down and re-imagined in vastly different form. Again at the risk of repetition…these aren’t tracks that have been sitting around in the vaults waiting…these are all newly recorded tracks completed specifically for this particular Box Set release. I don’t know if anyone has ever done this kind of thing before, but we felt that for us it was absolutely necessary to do this, and it makes perfect sense for where we are…at this moment.  
OK Friends with glass in hand as is only proper as proprietor of the Vineyard, I shall be your guide to this Netherworld and I shall discuss and try to reveal a bit of something about the “Spirit” and “Flavor” of each of the 5 Discs contained within this Epic Box Set we call: SEVEN DEVILS MOONSHINE.”
