Wolfheart Posts New Video, “Breakwater” Online

After releasing “Breakwater” as a digital single on all streaming platforms last Friday, the wolves around mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen didn’t just return to their den. Today Wolfheart unveils the result of their long journey into the ice and snow of Iceland’s glaciers to record the official music video. Here you can see the final result. It is the start of the story, telling about the Constellation Of The Black Light.

Wolfheart’s music videos are always very intense and have a deep connection to the concept behind the band, since they are all done by the band, from production to editing. So it is no surprise, that their video for “The Flood” from 2017 got more than 1.2 million views so far.
Tuomas Saukkonen about the new video:

“Again it was an adventure in every meaning of word to go thru this video process from beginning to the end. It included, for example, swimming in +2 degree glacier water in Iceland and having significant plastic parts in our backline turned into a liquid form. And the adventure will continue since ‘Breakwater’ is just the 1st of total amount of 3 videos carrying a bigger story.”

“Breakwater” is the first single from the upcoming new album “Constellation Of The Black Light” that will be released on September 28 via Napalm Records.

Avenger To Reissue Comeback Album, “The Slaughter Never Stops”

Metal, classic metal, thrash metal… NWOBHM! These are the defining genres that
best describe Avenger. Not a random stab at a description, but an archive of metal styles the band have molded themselves to and related to since their NWOBHM founding over three decades ago.

Avenger’s first two albums, “Blood Sports” (from 1984), and “Killer Elite” (from 1985), were recently reissued on CD via Dissonance Productions, and on LP via Back On Black Records. The reissues are packed with previously unreleased and rare bonus tracks, and booklets with previously unseen photos.

The series now continues: Avenger’s comeback album, “The Slaughter Never Stops” (originally released in 2014, and available as limited edition CD only), will be available on CD, and for the first time ever on LP, with a brand new cover artwork painted by Roberto Toderico (Tygers Of Pan Tang, Quartz, Mythra).

The CD version will hit the streets on September 21 – release date of the LP reissue will be announced shortly.

Moonspell Premieres New, “Herr Spiegelmann” Live Video

A unique and solemn spell seems to shroud every spot as soon as Portuguese alchemists Moonspell enters the stage – and it was a very special evening indeed when the band played an exceptional show at the Campo Pequeno arena in their hometown Lissabon on February 4th, 2017. That inimitable bond between the gothic metal act and 4,000 of their fans in the sold-out venue is pure electricity, captured for all eternity on the massive Live DVD/Blu-Ray/3CD package Lisboa Under The Spell which will be released on August 17th via Napalm Records.

Watch “Herr Spiegelmann” from the upcoming release below.

The band on the video: “‘Herr Spiegelmann’, or Mr. Mirrorman, is a song inspired by the amazing book of Patrick Suskind, The Perfume. I guess everybody knows that book, if not shame on you. I wrote the lyrics to the “execution scene” where people start seeing on the tortured, beaten down man on the stake, everything wonderful they want to see. Like a mirror man, reflecting their fears and ambitions and most secret wishes. I really love this song and the visual part of it was specially designed for this show, with the laser gloves and the mirror jacket, in a tentative to convey the eerie and psychedelic atmosphere of the song. I hope you guys enjoy this advance from Lisboa Under the Spell, as it does reflect the struggle for an original and emotional cut of the songs, just like a Moonspell show should be, add magic.”

The band on the new live epos: “We are thrilled to announce the release of our brand new Live DVD/Blu-Ray/3CD, Live album, entitled Lisboa Under The Spell! It was recorded live on our breathtaking capitol city of Lisbon and it’s nothing short of an epic trek of more than three action packed hours! We have played Wolfheart, Irreligiosuplus Extinct in full, invited a bunch of guests, summoned our biggest strength to be up to the task, and it feels awesome to unleash a long awaited live release from Moonspell. This edition will be full packed with amazing material, bonus CDs from the shows, a in depth documentary about the band, top sound, dramatic flair and a human picture of thousands of Portuguese witches and wolves under the spell. A great document of what we are on and off stage. Don’t miss out and visit Lisbon through the eyes of Moonspell fans and the genius work of director Victor Castro.”

It was definitely about time, since Moonspell aficionados have been thirsting for a new live release ever since Lusitanian Metal (2008). Thus, Lisboa Under The Spell is not simply a visual testimony to the success of Portugal`s biggest metal band – it is a celebration of the unbound creativity and pure magic that is Moonspell.

Lisboa Under The Spell will be available in the following formats:

– BD/DVD/3-CD DVDPac (6 pages Digipack, 28 pages booklet, 29 tracks + Rockumentary, 3 full length filmed shows, behind the scenes & making of videos, Gallery)

– 3LP Gatefold (29 tracks) Black/Gold/Blue Vinyl
