Noveria - New signing and debut album on Scarlet Records  
Progressive metallers Noveria have signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their debut album 'Risen'. The band consists of vocalist Frank Corigliano, Francesco Mattei (former member of Baton Rogue Morgue) on guitars, keyboard wizard Emanuele Casali (DGM, Astra), Omar Campitelli on drums and Andrea Arcangeli (DGM, Solisia) on bass guitar. ‘Risen’, features 9 challenging songs in a style the band likes to call “catastrophic” metal. The album was recorded at VDM Studios in Rome, Italy and mixed/mastered by renowned producer and musician Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios) at Domination Studios in San Marino, Italy. Mr. Mularoni also performed a guest guitar solo on the track ‘Fallen From Grace’. The beautiful artwork was handled by Simone Bertozzi (Mnemic, Empyrios). A music video for the first single ‘Downfall’, filmed and edited by Matteo Ermeti in a suggestive steel factory located in the city of Terni, Italy, will be released soon. 'Risen' will hit the stores on June 10th, 2014.
Scamp - New album 'The Deadcalm'  
Danish groove metallers Scamp are going to release their long-waited new album 'The Deadcalm' on Scarlet Records. The angry boys from Aarhus are back with brutal sounds that will entice, envelope and enlighten you with grooves that hit as hard as a dockside drunk hits a bottle of bourbon! Since their critically acclaimed debut album, 'Mirror Faced Mentality' that won them "Debut Album of the Year" at the Danish Metal Music Awards, Scamp has won over crowds at Roskilde Festival, Spot Festival and in support of greats like Meshuggah, Korn and Machine Head with their genre-bending riffworks and curb-stomping bottom growl. With new frontman Michael Bøgballe, formerly of Mnemic, Scamp hits high and low with unnerving control and uncontained vocal fury. 'The Deadcalm' puts the laughter back in slaughter with devilishly brutal voice and grooves that cure veganism, and along with the band's trademark rhythmic virtuosity and haunting melodies, the result is a plethora of delicious metal-juice sprayed across your face! 'The Deadcalm' has been produced by Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity, Sick Of It All) and will hit the stores on June 10th, 2014.
Astra - New signing and new album 'Broken Balance'  
‘Progressive metallers Astra have announced their return on the scene with their third, long waited album ‘Broken Balance’, following the critically acclaimed ‘About Me: Through Life And Beyond’ (2006) and ‘From Within’ (2009). The foursome, centered around keyboard wizard Emanuele Casali (DGM), have renovated their sound to make it less focused on the virtuosity of its members and more on a collective effort at putting forth memorable songs with accessible elements, particularly around their choruses. The lyrical concept itself evolves around the different meanings of “change”, as each of these 12 new songs suggest. The guitar riffs range from Symphony X precision to Queensryche’s late-eighties/early nineties vibe. The vocal arrangements are superb, suggesting a feel for the best in current metal production but also an appreciation for classic art rock like Queen or Styx, something that most progressive-minded acts lack nowadays. 2014 may shape up to be a good year for Progressive Metal.
Evenoire - New album 'Herons'  
Following the success of their debut ‘Vitriol’, Symphonic metallers Evenoire have announced the release of their sophomore album ‘Herons’. The band combines Gothic and Symphonic Metal with a very distinctive Medieval/Folk approach, with a special mention to extraordinary lead vocalist Lisy Stefanoni, whose ethereal and powerful voice and evocative flute add an extra dimension to the melodies and make her one of the most promising female singers around. And if ‘Vitriol’ was centered on “water” themes, this new album focuses on “fire” and all those mythological creatures that represent it. The music is heavier than ever before although the lyrical side of the band is still prominent. ‘Herons’ was recorded at Dreamsound Studios in Munich, Germany, with Mario Lochert, Dejan Djukovic and Daniel Rehbein (Emergency Gate, Graveworm, Visions of Atlantis) behind the consolle. Mastering and Mixing duties were handled by Jan Vacik (Dreamscape). The band has also announced the collaboration with keyboardist/producer Riccardo Studer (Stormlord, Hour Of Penance). A very special guest appearance by singer Linnéa Vikström (Therion) is also confirmed.
More exciting news will be revealed soon on www.evenoire.it.
Temperance - New signing and new album 'Temperance'  
Temperance is a new star in the Heavy Metal universe, born from the dedication and efforts of a group of musicians with more than a decade of experience in the scene, hundreds of concerts played with the likes of Rhapsody Of Fire, Dragonforce, Parkway Drive, Leave’s Eyes and Rage to name a few, and a renovated desire to make an impact. The band’s self titled debut album consists of an amazing mixture of tight, heavy guitar riffs, electronics and folk elements, bounded together in the name of melody and power. ‘Temperance’ was mixed and mastered by renowned musician/producer Simone Mularoni (DGM) at Domination Studio in San Marino, Italy. This is not your average metal band with female vocals. Temperance are here to make a difference. And they will take no prisoners.
Eldritch - New album ' Tasting The Tears'  
‘Tasting The Tears’ is Progressive Metal masters Eldritch’s ninth studio album in their almost 20 year career. This time the whole band worked together as a team, writing 11 brand new tracks melting each member’s influences into one direction. The result is 100% Eldritch: powerful guitars, melodic tunes and technical instrumental parts perfectly blended into a classic Progressive album with Hard Rock influences, thrashy and dark at intervals but, most importantly, remarkable in its own, unique way. The lyrics talk about love. Not standard love between two partners, but love in all its forms. Something the band have never done before. ‘Tasting The Tears’ has been produced by Eugene Simone at ES Studios in Livorno, Italy. Mixing and mastering duties have been handled by Simone Mularoni (DGM) at Domination Studios in San Marino, Italy. Follow the latest news on www.eldritchweb.com.
Def-Con-One - New album 'II'

This album sees the band take things to a whole new level. They have described their second offering as "a natural progression" and have definatly stamped their own sound all over it. With influences covering a wide range of musical styles, from modern metal to old school Rock and Punk, Def-Con-One have been described by the organizers of renowned Bloodstock Open Air festival as a bar fight between Machine Head, Slayer and Pantera. The band has gone from strength to strength, played countless shows in their home country and beyond and is now ready to unleash themselves upon the world. Follow www.def-con-one.com.
One Machine - New signing and debut album 'The Distortion Of Lies And The Overdriven Truth'  
One Machine, the brainchild of acclaimed guitarist/songwriter Steve Smyth (Testament, Nevermore, Forbidden, Dragonlord, Vicious Rumors), have inked a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their debut album, 'The Distortion Of Lies And The Overdriven Truth', to be released February 18th, 2014.
One Machine is an international metal band with classic and modern influences, featuring members carefully selected by Smyth: Mikkel Sandager (Mercenary) on vocals, Jamie Hunt (Biomechanical) sharing guitar duties, rounded out by a powerhouse rhythm section with Tomas “O’Beast” Koefoed (Mnemic) on bass guitar and Michele Sanna on drums (although former drummer Raphael Saini of Italian progressive metallers Chaoswave played on the album).
Smyth had often given thought to leading his own band throughout his distinguished career as a member of bands including Testament, Nevermore and Forbidden, amongst others. He had written a number of songs, but the challenge of finding the right members to bring them to life remained. He found a more than capable shredding second guitarist in Jamie Hunt, and the two began collaborating on the material Smyth had. “Jamie’s playing complements mine extremely well, and we hit it off perfectly when we got together to work on the songs” says Smyth. A vocalist was found in the form of original Mercenary singer Mikkel Sandager. He fit the kind of singer Smyth was looking for, with his versatile ability to sing in different ways, and his readiness to be pushed into new musical territories. “When our former bands toured together, I got to witness night after night, exactly what Mikkel could do; deliver a solid performance with an incredible range, as well as multiple characters in his voice. He’s perfect for this band!”
Smyth, Hunt, and Sandager then set about refining and shaping Smyth’s original material. In 2012, bassist Tomas “O’Beast” Koefoed, formerly of Mnemic, came on board, adding his distinctive sound to the tracks. “Tomas is without a doubt one of the most solid bassists I’ve encountered in some time! He literally added an entirely new dimension to these songs that would not have been possible to be achieved without him.”
'The Distortion Of Lies And The Overdriven Truth' was recorded and produced by Steve Smyth. Mixing was handled by Roy Z (Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson, Halford), mastered by Alan Douches (Three Inches Of Blood, Firewind, Sepultura) from West West Side Music with artwork created by Niklas Sundin from Cabin Fever Media (Dark Tranquillity, Arch Enemy), complimented with photography from Anthony Dubois (Meshuggah, Mnemic).

Ethersens - New album 'Your Wandering Ghost'  
French Avantgarde metallers Ethersens are going to release their new album ‘Your Wandering Ghost’ on Scarlet Records. Five years after their critically acclaimed debut release ‘Ordinary Days’, Ethersens are back with their strongest material to date, eight new songs that the band describes as raw, dynamic and full of tension. “This album is in many ways darker than ‘Ordinary Days’, it’s really based on tension and everything we went through while making it. It was a long journey to make the band survive, so we can say that a new era has started for us” says the band’s guitarist and founder Mickael André. And he adds: “It’s a concept album about a relationship between two people which takes a tragic turn. It’s very personal to our new singer Laurent Mora”. Innovative and highly emotional, Ethersens are one of those bands that really stand out in today’s music scene. Follow the latest news on www.ethersens.com.
Almah - New signing and new album 'Unfold'  
Brazilian Metal masters Almah have signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their new album 'Unfold'.

In May 2012 Falaschi announced his departure from Angra to concentrate on Almah as his main band.

On September 19, 2013 the band took part in the world famous Rock In Rio Festival, one of the most important musical events of the year. A co-headlining European tour with Secret Sphere has also been confirmed for November 2013.

Tigertailz - New signing and new EP 'Knives'  
More than two decades after the release of 'Bezerk' - an album that defined the whole turn-of-the-decade glam metal zeitgeist - Tigertailz roll on to new and fairer horizons. Greater challenges met head-on by bigger riffs, sharper solos, melt-yer-brain vocals and hooks heavy and dark enough to reel in not only 'Jaws' but all the sequels too.

New five-track EP 'Knives', which will be released next September by Scarlet Records, is the first new music from Tigertailz in almost six years, a new dawn that sees the band step it up on every level. Founder member Jay Pepper has reunited with long-time drummer Matt Blakout to create – with singer Jules Millis and bassist Rob Wylde – a savage statement of intent. Matt, who has recently played with Mott The Hoople star Verden Allen, returns to the band at a pivotal moment in its history. A time when it sounds hungrier than ever, and when the 'Knives' are most definitely sharpened.

The road rolls on for a hungry, revitalised Tigertailz. From a band that has survived challenges so bizarre that most wouldn't even believe it, expect blow-your-mind live performances, and in 'Knives' some new generation Tigertailz music to rally the clans. In fact, a competition to win a signed copy of the new EP attracted over 10,000 'hits' in less than three hours! It's a resurgence to make fans young and old proud of this classic Welsh metal band. The best advice right now is to brace yourselves...

Hollow Haze - New signing and new album 'Countdown To Revenge'

Death SS - New signing and new album 'Resurrection'  
As its title suggests, ‘Resurrection’ marks the return of seminal heavy metal band Death SS and its charismatic leader Steve Sylvester.
The band’s latest album, ‘The Seventh Seal’, came out to critical acclaim some 7 years ago in 2006.
‘Resurrection’ alternates the two topics that have always been the main inspirations behind the Death SS project: horror movies and occultism.
But for the first time ever, Steve wanted to add another one of his main influences in a more explicit way: the Italian sexy-horror comics of the Seventies! The beautiful illustrations used for the album cover and booklet were handled by the great "maestro" Emanuele Taglietti, an internationally renowned painter and author of all the covers of cult adult comics such as ‘Belzeba’, ‘Zora’, ‘Sukia’, ‘Cimiteria’, ‘La Poliziotta’ to name a few.
A big change happened also on the production front. For the first time after the release of ‘Black Mass’ in 1989, Steve produced the album himself without the supervision of a well known, external producer, simply relying on the experience he has matured in almost 35 years of career in the music business. These 12 new songs represent one of the finest bands in heavy metal still on top of its game. Follow www.deathss.com for all the updates.

Dark Moor - New album 'Ars Musica'  
Symphonic Power Metal masters Dark Moor are glad to announce the release of their new album 'Ars Musica', following the success of their previous, critically acclaimed effort 'Ancestral Romance'.

They still pay homage to the Spanish cultural heritage in songs such as 'First Lance Of Spain', ‘Gara & Jonay’ and ‘El Último Rey’, but elsewhere they go more personal, still giving high priority to their trademark melodies and elaborate harmonies. Talented singer Alfred Romero offers his best performance to date, whilst orchestrations are less classical and more grandiose and epic.

Angels Of Babylon - New signing and new album 'Thundergod'  
Angels Of Babylon have signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their long-waited second album. Founded by former Manowar drummer Kenny “Rhino” Earl in 2008, Angels Of Babylon released their debut album ‘Kingdom Of Evil’ in 2010, which featured another heavy metal legend, Dave Ellefson (of Megadeth fame) on bass guitar. ‘Thunder God’, this is the confirmed title of the new album, is as a collection of epic, melodic and heavy songs that will inspire and arouse the imagination, a timeless piece of work that any real heavy metal fan will treasure for many years to come. Here is how Rhino commented the event: “This record is a real labour of love. It is epic and memorable. I don’t like to write the standard macho metal songs. People may or may not be surprised that there are songs written from the heart. I never compromise my art. Also, there is no quantizing, no triggers, this album is 100% organic. Melody, emotion and energy… this is the focal point of all of our songs. I like my lyrics to be more about fantasy, real life experiences and historic events rather than going too dark and sinister. Although, you might find a shadow here and there. The song ‘Thunder God’ is dedicated to my friend Scott Columbus. May you keep your hammer high!”
