Gloryhammer Reveals New Album “Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex” Details

Mighty warriors of the galaxy! Gloryhammer are about to return from another epic quest, and they come bearing their new album, “Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex!” Today we received the cover of the third chapter of the mighty Gloryhammer saga.

The galaxy waits in fear for the return of Angus McFife XIII, who fought the greatest battle the galaxy has ever heard of, against the evil sorcerer Zargothrax. All hope of the Kingdom of Fife lies in the strong arms and the infinite wisdom of their young prince.

In late spring, Gloryhammer’s new album will tell us the whole story of the most gigantic battle of all time. Until then, we expect to receive more parts of what will end as the best power metal album the galaxy has ever seen. Keep your eyes and ears open!

Zargothrax on the new album:
“Oh wow! I know a lot of people have been waiting on this album for what seems like centuries. For the last three years we’ve been working non-stop on it in absolute secrecy, and now it is finally complete! We can’t wait for y’all to hear it…this is the greatest power metal album of all time. HOOTS!“

Mantric Streaming “Die Old” Title Track

Norwegian outfit Mantric has issued the following announcement about releasing the “Die Old” EP:

“We know you’ve been waiting five long years…and so have we. But here – finally – new material from Mantric! We’re happy to announce that we have signed a deal with Bergen’s hardcore-pride Loyal Blood Records, where they know what it’s like making music with your heart, and not your ego nor your greedy wallet.

“Later this year, they’ll give you the whole album, but first you’ll get the three-song EP ‘Die Old.’ Slightly more poppy than most of the album, you’ll get the cathcy rock-oriented title-track, a 70s prog rock track and a cove rsong of the Cardigans.

“Hints of both Swervedriver, Landberk, Lanny Kravitz, Led Zeppelin and harder rock might be found here, in just three tracks. If you don’t want to wait until June 19th to hear it, order one of these new Mantric shirts NOW and get the EP download instantly here.”

The title track to “Die Old” can now be heard in the player below, courtesy of MetalSucks.net.
