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.

Once Human Debut Live Version Of “Flock Of Flesh” – To Release Live Album In September

Once Human (ex-Machine Head, etc.) announce a September 28th release date for their live album “Stage Of Evolution” via earMUSIC. A clip of a live performance of “Flock Of Flesh” from the record can be streamed below. The set also features a cover of Machine Head‘s “Davidian” (ex-Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader is a member of Once Human) with guest vocals from Frédéric Leclercq of DragonForce/Sinsaenum.

Says Mader of the release:

“I know it’s uncommon for a band who is not headlining to record a live album. We were able to pull it off because today’s technology and compact size of the necessary gear is a part of our everyday monitoring system. We had loads of fun on tour with DragonForce. I’m so glad we captured a nice piece of it to share with all our fans.”
