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)

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

Amberian Dawn Unveils New Album “Darkness Of Eternity”

Amberian Dawn today unveils the initial details for an upcoming studio album including artwork, release date, and track listing. Band mastermind Tuomas Seppälä comments:

“‘Darkness of Eternity’ is one of the most emotional AD-albums so far. It’s got some really bombastic songs in mood of dark & symphonic melodic metal and in contrast to that also some really poppy songs too. For me it’s really hard to stick in one genre only and I constantly want to compose different kinds of songs!”

The “Magic Forest” story continues on this album and Tuomas explains: “The song ‘Symphony Nr.1. Part 1 – The Witchcraft’ told the story on the last record ‘Innuendo’ before the time of ‘Magic Forest.’ The little girl is a healer and village elders buried her alive in a coffin. The track ‘Symphony Nr.1. Part 2 – Darkness of Eternity’ on our upcoming record ‘Darkness of Eternity’ tells the story of the girl lying in the coffin trying to get out. Darkness is asking her to dance the waltz of eternity. The story will continue in Part 3 and we will tell you how she became the Magic Forest’s evil witch!”

New album “Darkness of Eternity” will be available on November 10th, 2017 via Napalm Records and the full track listing reads as follows:

1. I’m The One
2. Sky Is Falling
3. Dragonflies
4. Maybe
5. Golden Coins
6. Luna My Darling
7. Abyss
8. Ghostwoman
9. Breathe Again
10. Symphony Nr. 1, part 2 – Darkness Of Eternity
11. Anyone (Bonus Track)

“Metal Magic” Horror Story Arrives As Audiobook

Heavy metal and horror… is there a better combo? You might recall a few months back we covered a heavy metal horror book from Brian Barr aptly titled “Metal Magic.” For those who prefer an audiobook experience to an eReader or physical copy, the title just landed on Audible.com here.

A metal guitarist is gifted with a guitar grimoire, which he inherited from his late father’s library. With careful reading, practice, and commitment, this strange occult book could make him the greatest musician in the world…if the magic works in his favor. Something tells me it won’t!
