Scarlet Aura – upcoming album
24. August 2018
Romanian female-fronted melodic metallers SCARLET AURA will release their new album “Hot’n’Heavy” on December 11th, via Sliptrick Records. Today, Scarlet Aura and Sliptrick Records are proud to announce the release of “Hail To You!” – the first single from the upcoming Scarlet Aura studio album “Hot’n’Heavy”. Combination of fast tempo, catchy guitar riffs and powerful lyrics together with powerful and touching vocals could set this song as the next metal anthem for the new metal generation.
The band comments: “Hot’n’Heavy became a statement and unfolds our spirits as they grew and developed in the last 4 years. The first single “Hail To You!” is about metaphorical war, what becomes of us, soldiers, during the war. As you know, war changes everyone – you can try to be different, but… you just can’t. So the ones that have to change are not soldiers that are fighting. But the people they’re fighting for… At the end – we have to be all together, to stand united. Brothers and Sisters, hail to you!”

VESSEL OF LIGHT – Woodshed Doom Stoner Metal, Album Release: 21.09.2018
22. August 2018
Founded by Dan Lorenzo ( Hades, Non-Fiction, The Cursed ) and Nathan Opposition ( Ancient VVisdom ), US-based duo VESSEL OF LIGHT are set to release their highly anticipated debut album on September 21th 2018 with Argonauta Records. ‘Woodshed’ is the natural follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2017-EP, and features some of the finest Doom Metal with Stoner Rock vibes at its best!
To give some more taste, VESSEL OF LIGHT have now unleashed the stunning track ‘One Way Out’. „One Way Out is one of my favorite songs on Woodshed and although I did two completely separate guitar tracks it’s sounding brutal at our rehearsals.“ Band mastermind Dan Lorenzo explains. „Nathan combined his clean voice for the verse and the chorus…he just lets loose. Brutal. One way Out is the only song on Woodshed that features an additional musician. Nathan’s brother Michael ( from Ancient VVisdom) recorded the wah-wah guitar solo.“
