FALLEN SANCTUARY, feat. members of Serenity & Temperance, Releases Music Video For Album Title Track Of Upcoming Debut!
29. April 2022
June 24, 2022 will see new melodic power metal force, FALLEN SANCTUARY, featuring Georg Neuhauser (Serenity) and Temperance guitarist Marco Pastorino, release their first full-length album, entitled Terranova, through AFM Records.
After the previously-released, first epic single “Broken Dreams”, today the four-piece has shared a music video for the album title track of their upcoming debut!
Says Marco about the song:
“Terranova was one of the first tracks we wrote for our debut album and we immediately agreed – this is melodic metal like we love it!”
Vocalist Georg adds:
“I really love Terranova – fast, melodic and with dramatic lyrics about drug addiction. It simply reminds me of one of my favourite albums: “Silence” by Sonata Arctica.”
Neuhauser and Pastorino became friends in 2018 during a joint tour and soon realised that they pretty much share musical idols and tastes.
“Marco and I often got talking at night on the tour bus to the next show with Serenity and Temperance. It was amazing that we have so many favourite bands in common. And since we also get along really well on a personal level and live only a four-hour drive apart, we came up with the idea of releasing an album together some day.”

Downset return with powerful socio-political album ‘Maintain’, on June 10th
29. April 2022
Los Angeles’ groundbreaking rap/hardcore pioneers, DOWNSET., will make their long-awaited return this spring for the release of their first album in 8 years, “Maintain,” that’s due out June 10th from Nuclear Blast.
On their 6th album, the band draws inspiration from their early hardcore and hiphop roots while reigniting their passion for the streets and fury for the current societal and political injustices.
- Blackest of Days
- New Respect
- Won’t Forget
- Wreck It
- On Lock (Only the Defest)
- The Place To Be
- Your Power
- Positive Mind
- Hear Me Now
The band has revealed full details of “Maintain,” as well as the record’s first single “The Place To Be,”
Commenting on the new single’s origin of sound, guitarist Rogelio Lozano states:
“This was one of the first tracks written with the new members Bobby Ponte and Philip Gonzales. With Nick Jett (TERROR) engineering and co-producing, our first objective was to try and revisit the original DOWNSET sound of the first ever recorded demos. To try and recreate the tone, we first unwound our guitars and basses back to drop “C,” and then created heavy rhythmic beats and riffs to facilitate a platform for Rey Oropeza’s Hard Rap flows.”
Lozano adds about the lyrical content:
“The lyrics to this song combine several subjects into one song and at the end all tying in together. Represent yourself with class, responsibility and courage. Setting a good example for our youth is my interpretation of the message.”

Sebastian Muench, Napalm Records A&R, adds:
“BLOODBATH could be simply described as a super-group and the title would be 100% correct. However the essence of BLOODBATH lies in their endless talent to create death metal magic. Death metal as pure and wonderful as very few bands are capable of. BLOODBATH, we are absolutely proud and honored to welcome you to the Napalm family!”
