SANCTUARY: LAUNCH “DIE FOR MY SINS (REMASTERED 1986 DEMO) OFF “INCEPTION” RELEASE!
Sanctuary: launch “Die For My Sins (remastered 1986 demo) off “Inception” release!
Century Media Records and legendary US metal act SANCTUARY have teamed up to release “Inception”, a collection of presumed lost 1986 studio recordings, on February 24, 2017.

Magically restored, remixed and remastered by Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Hatebreed), SANCTUARY now present the first track off this release, guitarist Lenny Rutledge comments:
“‘Die for My Sins’ was always one of my favorite SANCTUARY songs to play live. On the “Inception” version we left off the intro and the song starts right into the main riff. I think this version has a real “in your face” edge to it. I’m excited that after much effort we were able to restore these nearly destroyed master tapes. Now we can share the proper audio versions with all of our fans!”

Enjoy “Die For My Sins (Demo 1986)” here:

“Inception” will be available as Gatefold LP on 180 gram vinyl and comes with a 12-page LP-sized booklet, poster, and the album on CD as additional extra. Apart from that it will be released as Special Edition CD Digipak with a 28-page booklet, and digital album.
Apart from rare photos, flyers, artwork sketches, the booklet also offers detailed liner notes by Lenny Rutledge covering SANCTUARY’s early history.

Memoriam Set To Release Debut Album “For The Fallen”


Old school death metallers, MEMORIAM, are set to unleash their debut album, »For The Fallen«, on March 24th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. It will contain 8 tracks, incl. ‘War Rages On’, ‘Resistance’ (both featured on »The Hellfire Demos I«) and ‘Surrounded (By Death)’ (featured on »The Hellfire Demos II«).

memoriam-for-the-fallenThe album’s impressive artwork was created by Dan Seagrave (BENEDICTION, DISMEMBER, HYPOCRISY, SUFFOCATION,…).

Dan stated on the cover artwork:
“Starting from the bands thoughts on visualising a kind of funeral procession with a theme of combat, war and in conjunction with the title »For The Fallen«. As with all my works, I then attempt to make the information evolve in my minds eye, and allow imagination to take over those elements. But retaining the core concept. The painting thus depicts.

A funeral procession moving through a long war torn cityscape. Twisted shards of towers & buildings. A cathedral facade stands defiantly, yet riddled with destruction and decay. At closer inspection the structures all seem to be infected with an element of natural decomposition, as if organically inclined to fade with the demise of the season.

The season itself lost in a timeless void. The figures appear as remnants of once soldiers, now strange in their gathered mass. Drawn forwards by the drifting momentum of the procession. Unaware of their emaciated state they follow the commander.
The commander’s elongated appearance is tattered and almost creature like, with the combat style elements and gas mask falsely presenting as a costume.

The procession appears almost ghost like, ancient and serene, slowly moving through this eerie place as if forever.
Far in the background there might still be a war happening, but perhaps in another time. As we view a sub level of reality. Lost in the present. Captured in light, where the war had passed through and we are left in a ghost biology. Where chemicals and history meet to create an inescapable surrealism.”

To give a first taster of what to expect from this highly-anticipated record, the first single from »For The Fallen«, ‘Reduced To Zero’, has been launched today.

LANCER – New Album Out and 2nd Track by Track trailer launched


“Great Swedish energetic power metal with stunning technical virtuosity and brilliant melodies! A must have album!”

METALLIAN (F)

“»Mastery« is like a dream come true for anyone who needs mature arrangements and a slight touch of melancholic darkness in the majestic songbook of traditional power metal. LANCER will easily become the next sweet obsession for fans of early HELLOWEEN, EDGUY and HAMMERFALL, but starting from this album their personality is stronger than ever.”
ROCK HARD (I), Emanuele Biani

“This album is a modern retro masterpiece – in the vein of IRON MAIDEN and HELLOWEEN. It’s fast, it’s melodic – it’s all you need!”
SCREAM (N), Stig Ødegaard

“A technical and majestic masterpiece! With »Mastery« LANCER bring fresh air to the power metal scene!”
MYROCK (F)

The wait is over – LANCER‘s label debut, »Mastery«, is out now through Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork of this outstanding 10-track record was created by Dimitar Nikolov (ROSS THE BOSS, MAJESTY) once again. The final layout was done by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD,…).
