Doro Reveals More, “Forever Warriors, Forever United” Album Details

“Forever Warriors, Forever United” – its 100 days to go until the release of Doro’s highly anticipated new studio album. 100 days of waiting until the metal queen unleashes 25 brand new songs, her first double album ever, upon the music world. But “Forever Warriors, Forever United” isn’t simply just a double album – it’s two new Doro records as one, which will be released as premium 2CD set and vinyl formats on August 17th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast.

On Forever Warriors, Doro channels her inner wild warrior, with tracks like “Bastards” or the first single “All For Metal” (release: June 8th) affirming this. Her duet with Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg “If I Can’t Have You…” is sure to bring any metal head to their knees. This is Doro like you’ve never heard her before!

Forever United takes a more sentimental turn, with lyrical topics covering friendship, love and companionship. Highlights include Doro’s tribute to the late and great Lemmy.

“We’ve been touring a lot during the last years. We collected a lot of impressions and got to meet many amazing people. That inspired me enormously,” explains Doro. “The songs and ideas simply bubble out of me. That process didn’t even end while being in the studio. We had 50 song ideas in the beginning which turned into 14 concrete album tracks. Suddenly we had 20 songs, and in the end it was even 24. I also wanted to record ‘Caruso’ in the last recording week.”

With”Forever Warriors, Forever United,” Doro presents two new records, featuring 19 regular tracks and 6 bonus songs, which include some big surprises!

This unique song writing marathon was based on” “Living Life To The Fullest” back in January 2016. Says Doro , “I was flying to Lemmy’s funeral when the track’s melody and lyrics suddenly came to mind. Lemmy was always very important to me. Everything went quickly from this point. As soon as a song was constructed, I headed to the studio – between all those shows and tours – to capture the freshness and live energy of the new tracks.”

The result is 25 songs in the form of two fantastic albums, showcasing all of Doro’s wonderful and varied facets.” Forever Warriors, Forever United” is another huge chapter added to her long history.

The album cover artwork was once again created by Doro’s favourite artist, Geoffrey Gillespie. It portrays Doro in the middle of a swarm of wild metal heads exuding attitude, power and positive vibes. “The cover and the title form a perfect unit,” Doro explains, “Just as it should be. It all fits perfectly in line with the songs, which also deal with some political themes.”

Doro continues: “On Forever Warriors, Forever United, there will be a lot of big rock heroes. Fans might be curious about the many awesome guest musicians involved. There are some big anthems on both albums, countless heavy songs, as well as heart-warming melodies! The records are supposed to give you power and thus contain a lot of energy”.

The first single “All For Metal” features several metal heroes, who can also be seen in the upcoming music video, which will be released on June 8th. The list of guest stars will be unveiled soon… and Doro is already convinced that “’All For Metal’ is going to be the new ‘All We Are’!”

Guitarist Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio, Dead Daisies) and former Warlock guitarist Tommy Bolan, who also contributed to the highly acclaimed album Triumph And Agony in 1987, will also be part of the new album.

Alien Weaponry Announces Debut Album, “Tu”

Three teenagers, known as ALIEN WEAPONRY, from a tiny town in New Zealand have managed to capture imaginations with their unique thrash metal sound and commanding live performances. This in itself is surprising, but perhaps the most unexpected element of all in their success is that many of the band’s songs are delivered in a language that is unknown to international audiences – New Zealand’s native language, Te Reo Maori.

Now, ALIEN WEAPONRY are ready to release their furious debut album “Tu” on the world. Short for “Tumatauenga,” the Maori god of war, Tu also means to stand strong and proud, and to stand for something. The notion is reflected in the album artwork, which includes the tradtional moko kanohi (facial tattoos) of the Maori warrior.

Napalm Records released the single and video for the song “Holding My Breath” – the first single so far to be sung entirely in English. The song was written by Lewis (Vocals/Guitar). In it, he talks about the anxiety of being judged and socially ostracized by peers to the point of being unable to function.

“It’s about something that actually happened to me. I felt so bad that I literally stayed in my room and couldn’t bring myself to leave the house or talk to anyone,” he says. “I wrote the song at that time, and it was one of the things that helped me work through it, so I hope it will resonate with other people going through similar things.”

One of the people it has already resonated with is actress Rose van Wylich, featured in the video; who experienced similar feelings of isolation as a teenager.

“Holding My Breath” is the first single put out by Napalm Records in advance of ALIEN WEAPONRY’s debut album “Tu” being released on June 1st. A month later, the band will head to Europe for a 3-month tour which includes the world’s biggest metal festival, Wacken Open Air.
You can preorder “Tu” here.

Here is the track listing for “Tu”:

1. Whaikorero
2. Ru Ana Te Whenua
3. Holding My Breath
4. Raupatu

Eyes Of The Sun launches video for album track, “Slavery of Another Name”, online

– March 12th, 2018 –

On March 16th, Brooklyn’s Eyes Of The Sun will release their debut album, Chapter I, via Blacklight Media Records. Originally self-released in 2013, Chapter I blends ambient and moody guitars with bouts of double bass driven aggression. This is sludgy doom with an angry edge, and as vocalist/bassist Jeff Blanchard describes: “‘Chapter I‘ is all about the demise and destruction we do to our planet and to ourselves.”

To preview Chapter I, the video for the album track “Slavery of Another Name” (directed by Candiria‘s John LaMacchia) can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=2tupK5a2tV0. “Walks of Life” and “My War” can also be streamed at: blacklightmediarecords.com/eyesofthesun – where the record can be pre-ordered digitally and on CD.

Chapter I track-listing:
1. My War
2. When It Dies
3. Walks of Life
4. Choke
5. End of Origin
6. Nineteen
7. Sound the Horns
8. Slavery of Another Name

Eyes Of The Sun was conceived in early 2007 by bassist/vocalist Jeff Blanchard. Long-time friend Miguel De Jesus Jr. joined the ranks with Jeff a few months later on guitar. Within a few years, and after a couple of past members on second guitar and drums, Chris O’Neil joined as the permanent drummer. As a trio, they performed countless shows over the past 10 years, delivering their unique brand of doom metal – which leaves listeners with a range of emotions, that the band themselves then experience and extract from. The band explains: “It is known throughout the laws of science and nature that the sun creates and sustains life…Now it stands witness to the atrocities, depletion and vile consumption manifested by mankind, which it originally sustained life for. In our way, we portray what is seen through the Eyes Of The Sun.”

Eyes Of The Sun line-up:
Jeff Blanchard – vocals & bass
Miguel De Jesus Jr. – guitar
Chris O’Neil – drums
