Wilderness Dream Posts New Song “The Awakening”

“The Awakening” is the latest volatile single from Bay Area hardcore/thrash metal warriors Wilderness Dream. The track, which hails from the band’s impending “Paralysis Rise” EP, can be heard below.

With an unhinged vocal sincerity, blistering twin guitar assault, and a crushing rhythm section, Wilderness Dream’s sound and identity has naturally evolved into a more blackened and ominous thrash-metal assault.

Recorded in February through April of 2017 with Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios in Pittsburgh, California, “Paralysis Rise” pays homage to the death metal pioneers and legends of the ’90s while injecting the band’s own special vicious brand of intensity

The band is currently booking tour dates supporting the new EP, with a run through California alongside Viral taking place the first week of August, and additional widespread tour dates beyond the region to follow.

8/02/2017 El Rio – San Francisco, CA
8/03/2017 Programme – Fullerton, CA
8/04/2017 PV Lounge – Phoenix, AZ
8/05/2017 Til Two Club – San Diego, CA
8/06/2017 TBA – Fresno, CA

Fighter Records Inks Deal With Excalibur For Third Full Length Album

Spanish metal pioneers Excalibur (formed back in 1984) has just signed a deal with Fighter Records for the release of the third full length studio album (and first since 1996) entitled “Humo Negro” (“Black Smoke”) which will be released this coming spring.

After a couple of demos in ’84 & ’87, Excalibur released the debut album “Generación Maldita” (Damned Generation) in ’88, which only 100 copies were saved from destruction making it one of the most sought-after treasures of Spanish metal.

In 1996, the band recorded the second album “Cero” (Zero) which was never commercialized, and remains unreleased still today. In 2013, the band returned with a new EP titled “Más Duros” (Harder). Now in 2017, the band finished “Humo Negro,” which represents the purest and most traditional Spanish metal to be distributed both nationally and internationally via Fighter Records.

More details of “Humo Negro” are expected soon.
