Re-Recorded Debut Album “World Of Silence” To Be Issued By Borealis

Canadian progressive power metal act Borealis will release a fully re-recorded version of the debut album “World Of Silence” on January 27th via AFM Records!

Dubbed “World Of Silence MMXVII” – the release is an entirely re-recorded and remixed version of the debut. Originally released in 2008, this 2016 remix now sees the songs officially made available through a label for the very first time! The diehard fanbase surely will be amazed by the massive improvement on sound and performance over the original recordings. “World Of Silence MMXVII” is a must have for all progressive power metal lovers!

“We were in talks with AFM Records about re-releasing ‘World Of Silence’ when we suddenly thought ‘why not re-record the entire album for this occasion?’,” Borealis singer/guitarist Matt Marinelli says.

“It was originally self-released in 2008. A lot has happened since then. The band has evolved a lot and two more albums were released in 2011’s ‘Fall From Grace’ and 2015’s ‘Purgatory’. So making this re-issue of ‘World Of Silence’ a representation of what Borealis is about in 2017 made sense for us. We are in the fortunate position that our drummer Sean Dowell runs his own studio, so recording, mixing/mastering didn’t cause any problems for us in this case.”

After finishing work on “World Of Silence MMXVII,” Borealis has two more exciting projects for 2017: in April, the band will re-release their 2011 album “Fall From Grace” via AFM Records and has already continued songwriting for the upcoming new studio album, which will drop in Autumn 2017.

The track list for “World Of Silence MMXVII” is as follows:

1. Lost Voices
2. Midnight City
3. From The Fading Screams
4. Forget The Past
5. Eyes Of A Dream
6. World Of Silence
7. The Afterlife
8. Divine Answer
9. The Dawning Light
10. Black Rose

Wolfheart Signs With Spinefarm Records To Release New Album

Spinefarm Records is pleased to announce that it has signed Wolfheart to the label’s worldwide roster.

Wolfheart will re-release the 2013 debut “Winterborn” with two additional bonus tracks on February 3rd of next year through Spinefarm. The album was initially self-released, with physical versions only available in Wolfheart’s native Finland. The additional tracks are titled “Isolation” and “Into the Wild.”

Wolfheart is also currently finishing up a new album and Spinefarm debut, titled “Shadow World.” The album is due out in mid-2015.

The band is shoring up plans to tour Finland and Europe in 2015, hitting the festival circuit, with a U.S. tour also tentatively planned for next year.

“After all the blood, sweat and tears poured into the self-released/self-financed debut Winterborn, it is truly amazing to have a worldwide release for the album and I could not think of a better label for the job than renowned Spinefarm,” Wolfheart said. “It’s super exciting times, since, while counting days for the re-release of Winterborn, the second Wolfheart album Shadow World is almost ready and 2015 will be a year of two albums out.”

Wolfheart was born in 2013 from the ashes of Before the Dawn and Black Sun Aeon. Sole member, songwriter, and producer Tuomas Saukkonen wanted to combine the musical elements from his previous bands and to embark on a fresh start after 14 years in music business and several albums.

Colosus Reissuing “Blestem” With Compilation

Known for his work as drummer of Sidious, Krhudd will re-release “Blestem,” the debut album from one-man black metal project Colosus through Kaotoxin Records on October 7th in North America and October 27th in Europe. The album will be available as a limited edition first press (1,000 copies) DigiSleeve CD and Cassette Tape (100 copies).

Perhaps best described as dark ambient black metal, “Blestem” is a journey into blasphemy, pain and destruction. Though Krhudd plays myriad instruments and delivers loathsome vocals, the album also features special guest vocals from by Déhà (We All Die (Laughing), COAG) on “La Apus.”

Also featuring a cover of Coldworld’s “Red Snow,” the album comes bundled with a free 26-track Kaotoxin Records compilation. “Blestem” was originally issued in 2013 as a digital-only release.
A trailer for “Blestem” has been posted below.
