Sage Signs New Record Deal With Rockshots Records

Hailing from Croatia, the rising stars Sage have just signed a worldwide record deal with Rockshots Records for the release of their debut album “Anno Domini 1573”, which is being released on September 21, 2018.

The album is a concept album about the Peasants’ Revolt that took place in England in the 1300s. The album encompasses themes of the battles between good and evil, honesty and greed. Sage delivers a mix of heavy, powerful and progressive metal, which the band blends to forge a unique but recognizable sound.

“The band name Sage means both the plant sage and ‘a wise old man'”, comments Enio Vuceta, guitarist and backup singer of the band, a living legend of the Croatian rock/metal scene. “We wanted to connect this to ourselves in a way because we are composed of several generations of Croatian musicians and we have great ambitions for our music to make a breakthrough in the world.”

“Anno Domini 1573” has been co-produced by Casey Grillo (former Kamelot member), mixed and mastered by Jim Morris at Morrisound Recording studio.

Synapse Defect Premiere “Prize Pie” Single & Music Video

Synapse Defect premiere “Prize Pie”, a new single that’s also a music video. The song is a brief early glimpse into the group’s maddening third full-length, Quantitative Easing, set for 2018 release.

You can check out “Prize Pie” below.

Synapse Defect vocalist Chuck Cheney had this to say about “Prize Pie” and the group’s upcoming 2018 album:

“The band Synapse Defect is far from a new name in metal, they have previously released two full-length albums, toured the nation several times over, and if they have been flying under your radar, let them evade you no more! Synapse Defect from Atlanta, Georgia is now unleashing the second addition to a series of new singles being released as music videos in the 2017-2018 time period. “Prize Pie”, to be released in November of 2017, is described as a precise and quick jab to the jugular, with a dash of esoterics.”

New MCD/Single “Imperilled” Released By The Maledict

Hailing from Australia, the death/doom collective The Maledict has released the brand new three-song single/MCD “Imperilled” last week, on October 5th. This new single features one new song, one reworked track from the band’s 2013 demo, and one cover. Check out “Imperilled” in the player below.

The title track heads up the package, bringing 8 minutes of doom. The new material is as laden with melancholy as ever, but now hints at things to come – with a heavy injection of atmosphere and melody to accentuate against the filthy canvas of death/doom metal.

“Waltz Eternal,” the leading cut from the band’s 2013 demo “Salvation in Yielding” has been reworked from the ground-up, bringing one of the band’s favorite live tracks into the present with far superior production.

And finally, the release culminates with a tribute to one of the biggest musical inspirations behind The Maledict’s sound as they cover the title track from Paradise Lost’s seminal 1991 classic “Gothic”, arguably the song that invented death/doom as we know it.

“Imperilled” is available for free on Bandcamp, as well as being released on most streaming digital music services. Check out the MCD in full here:
