Listen to a stream of the new aurally enticing single “Gotham” HERE.
Beginning today, “Prevail I” is available for pre-order in exclusive bundle packages via the Napalm Records Webstore HERE.
Frontwoman KOBRA PAIGE on the story of “Prevail I” the band’s most ambitious effort to date:
“When we are born, we are innocent, pure, and unshaped. This mandala signifies a human at the beginning of it’s journey. Unscathed and beautiful, the mandala is each and every one of us. As this album unfolds, you will notice it’s more than just music. ‘Prevail I’ is a story of visceral truth and I believe, if we’re really being honest with ourselves, everyone will find their story within it. After all, the battles may differ, but we all started as the same mandala and we are more relatable than we’d like to admit. Our only wish is that you may enjoy the freaking crap out of this album and find comfort in realizing you’re not alone.”

Title Track From The New MYTHRA Album Available For Streaming
16. February 2017
On April 28, 2017, British heavy metal veterans Mythra will release a brand new studio album entitled „Still Burning“. The album will be available as a vinyl LP, CD, and digital download, and will be released via High Roller Records. Album’s title track is now available for streaming, and can be heard on this location:
„It’s the first time the band has gone into the studio and recorded a complete album all in one go. We flew out to Poland in October 2016 to work with Bart Gabriel as producer. It was a superb experience and we all had a great time working with him. We were totally blown away when High Roller Records signed us to record the album and cannot thank them enough. Their support has been incredible!“ says Mythra vocalist, Vince High. „We intended to stay true to our NWoBHM roots and achieved our goal. The eleven tracks have tons of power and energy, twin lead guitar breaks, driving bass, thunderous drums and big choruses. Everything fans would expect from a Mythra album“, he adds.
The album’s cover artwork was painted by Roberto Toderico, an Italian artist known for his previous collaboration with Mythra, as well as with other notable NWoBHM acts such as Tygers Of Pan Tang and Quartz.
Mythra‘s reunion was a major event for many NWoBHM fans around the globe. Their legendary first recording from 1979, entitled „The Death And Destiny EP“, has cult status and stands alongside Iron Maiden‘s „The Soundhouse Tapes“ released in the same year. The band has a great legacy, which has inspired and continues to inspire Metal bands across the world – including Metallica, whose members have cited Mythra as one of the influences on their early recordings. Last year Mythra released the „Warriors Of Time: The Anthology“ album, which featured a collection of classic tracks recorded between 1979 and 1982 along with five songs written and recorded in 2015 following the band’s reunion performances at Brofest UK and the Keep It True festival in Germany, both of which attracted fans from across Europe, the USA and South America.
