After having released details of their forthcoming HEIDEVOLK album including the title, artwork, track listing and release date, it’s time to get a first listen to the new record!
The first track of the record as well as first single to be released is “Ontwaakt” (awaken), the band gives a deeper insight of the track and story behind:
“Awaken, the Roman Empire is falling! The internal battle for power tears the Empire apart. Legions turn against each other, emperors bleed and Rome burns. It is time for the tribes of the Northern lands to unite and rise against the tyrant. To take back what is theirs and drive the invaders back to Rome. Every battle that is fought by my people resounds in Rome. With sword and shield the Empire will be banished and the voice of my people will be heard!”
Furthermore songwriter Rowan Roodbaert comments:
“Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, we proudly present the first single of our new album. This is “Ontwaakt” (“Awaken”), the opening track of “Vuur Van Verzet”. An in-your-face metal song that tells the ageless story of revolt and resistance set against the backdrop of the historic collapse of the Roman empire. Heavy guitars, thundering drums and Heidevolks’ trademark dual vocal harmonies will catapult you back in time. Imagine a battlefield where Romans are being pushed back by Germanic warriors. Well, this is the soundtrack. Now awaken, the Pagan Metal Brotherhood is on the rise!!!”

- The Alliance
- Het Oneindige Woud
- Het Juk der Tijd
- Drink op de Nacht (Bonus Track)

STRAY BULLETS: DEAL WITH SNEAKOUT RECORDS
29. November 2017
Sneakout Records is glad to announce the signing of Italian hard rockers Stray Bullets for the release of their debut album. Their story begins back in 2007, when this hard rock combo coming from Verona (north of Italy) started to write the first songs together, in order to move their first steps for the making of their first studio album. It took three years to record and self-release “Lost Soul Town”, a demo/album with ten tracks entirely played and recorded by the band as a home-made recording. In the following years, Stray Bullets faced a series of line-up changes, which accidentally led them to focus their proposal on a more sleaze oriented rock style. In the summer of 2015, after the meeting with Oscar Burato and Stefano Gottardi of Burning Minds Music Group, Stray Bullets took the decision of putting the basis for a collaboration together, in order to improve the quality of their proposal. The band entered the doors of Atomic Stuff Studio under the artistic guidance of Oscar himself, finalizing (with the line-up composed by vocalist Alex Chinaski, guitar-players Steven Evil and Nick, bass-player Dave Dufford and drummer Zen) the eleven tracks of “Shut Up”, which includes most of the songs taken from “Lost Soul Town”, now re-written and re-arranged according to the soul and style of the new line-up. A new band, a new album, and a new adventure: Stray Bullets are ready to rock the world with the energy captured in their debut “Shut Up”.
