Redemption lands on international charts with new album, ‘Long Night’s Journey into Day’

#17 Current Hard Music Albums (USA)
#19 Top New Artist Albums (USA)
#42 Record Label Independent Current Albums (USA)
#109 Top New Artist Albums Consumption (USA)
#174 Top Current Albums (USA)

#69 Media Control Top 100 (Germany)
#83 Hard Music Charts (Canada)

Long Night’s Journey Into Day is inarguably the sound of a band at the height of their powers. As followers of Redemption are also aware, it is the first full-length since the departure of vocalist Ray Alder, and features the debut of Evergrey vocalist Tom Englund. “We were unable to tour ‘The Art Of Loss‘ because Ray was not able to actively participate in Redemption any longer, so we decided it was time to part company shortly after its release. Ray is a dear friend, and I have nothing but respect and love for him and what we created together. But at some point, it just became untenable.” Of course, Alder’s shoes were not exactly going to be easy to fill, and it was essential that his successor be someone who would immediately command respect, as well as somebody who could exceed expectations when it came to performance. Moreover, it was integral that they had someone who could fully invest in the lyrical themes concerning the human condition, which have always been central to Redemption. So, the fact that from the beginning of his career Englund has penned lyrics about feelings of doubt, fear and despair with an unshakable emotional authenticity made him the perfect choice. “Because of the power of his voice and the emotion he brings, this isn’t going to be a shocking transition for fans. Tom’s also a very versatile vocalist, and being a songwriter, he has a tremendous melodic and compositional sensibility, and on top of that, we’ve known each other for many years, and there is a level of not just professional respect but personal friendship to it all.”

Guitarists Chris Poland (Megadeth, OHM) and Simone Mularoni (DGM) return as guest musicians. When it came to backing up the music with visuals, the band once again turned to a longtime collaborator, Travis Smith, whose humbling resumé includes records by bands such as Art Of Defiance, Opeth and Iced Earth.

As previously announced, Redemption will appear at ProgPower USA 2018, along with a special show at the Whisky A Go Go, with more USA dates coming soon. See below for all dates!

Redemption live:
Sept. 7 – Atlanta, GA – Center Stage (ProgPower USA)

English NWOBHM legends Satan release 2nd single, “Into the Mouth of Eternity”

– August 8th, 2018 –

Artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom)

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! For a preview of Cruel Magic, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=3YVFKzSgT4I to stream the 2nd single, “Into The Mouth Of Eternity”!

Satan comments about the new single: “Playing this song in rehearsals is such a rollercoaster, and it’s obvious already that it’s going to be part of the Satan live show for some time to come. This song has been in the making since 2014 and we are so excited to finally unleash it on the new record. It’s our album opener, so turn up the volume and hold on!”

Afterwards, head over to metalblade.com/satan, where you can watch the video for the first single, “The Doomsday Clock”, as well as pre-order Cruel Magic in the following formats:


–ltd. Boxset (incl. Digipak-CD, excl. bonus-CD, excl. dead gold-marbled vinyl w/excl. bonus-LP, 75×75 cm flag, circular 12″ back patch, five A4 art prints, A4 photo card, numbered certificate)
–Digipak-CD (EU exclusive)
–CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–red/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–water blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–steel grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – US exclusive)
–yellow/ochre-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Tracking the album at First Avenue Studio, they further demonstrated their trust and rapport with past collaborators, recruiting engineer Dave Curle and Dario Mollo to handle the mix, letting them handle the technical side of things so the quintet could focus all of their energies on giving the best performances. Confident in the songs they had written and how they wanted them to sound made the process a very easy one, walking out of the studio with a record of which they are understandably proud, and will reign supreme in the speakers and headphones of metalheads the world over when it drops in September. “We truly feel we’ve got it 100% right this time, the balance between considered content and reckless performance. We always break loose on stage so why not on record?”

Cruel Magic track-listing:
1. Into The Mouth Of Eternity
2. Cruel Magic
3. The Doomsday Clock
4. Legions Hellbound
5. Ophidian
6. My Prophetic Soul
7. Death Knell For A King
8. Who Among Us
9. Ghosts Of Monongah
10. Mortality

Haunted Premiere New Video For “Dayburner”

International doom metal outfit Haunted recently unleashed their new studio album, “Dayburner” via Twin Earth Records. Today the band revealed their video of the new single ‘Dayburner’. Watch it now below:

Francesco Bauso, guitar player, states:

“Basically, it’s one of the most spontaneous songs we have composed so far. We started from a verse and then built the rest around the main riff. The idea of the acoustic guitars came to our mind directly in studio, to add emphasis to the song’s intro. It’s actually the most catchy track on the record, boasting a Sabbathian riffing. On the finale we had the chance to experiment a bit with some overdubs, such as floor-toms for example; whose rhythm evokes a sort of witches dance.”

The video has been created by Gryphus Visual, who works with different labels (Twin Earth, Argonauta, Ripple Music) and made background visuals for Lucifer at Roadburn 2015, besides being the visual master of Addicthead and Echolot.
