THORNBRIDGE: Album Artwork

THORNBRIDGE are going to release their debut album "What Will Prevail" next month, and have now revealed the album's cover artwork.

It's been created by Juanjo Castellano Rosado, who worked with bands like Vomitory or Portrait.

The artwork has some parallels to the album's title track, explains bassist Burghi:

"The song 'What Will Prevail' is about all those, who refused to yield, who held on to their beliefs even when they were tortured and killed. It's about those who will be remembered."

Burghi also stated that the album doesn't follow any theme, but that it's set in a fantastic medieval setting.

"What Will Prevail" was recorded and mixed by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann and mastered by Dennis Koehne. Philip Dennis "Sly" Schunke of Van Canto contributed guest vocals on the song "Eternal Life".

THORNBRIDGE also recently shot the official video clip for the song "The Dragon's Reborn". Keep your eyes on the band's facebook page for pictures from the video shoot.

New Signing: WICKED MARAYA

Guess who's back?

WICKED MARAYA - and they're finally going to release the long lost album "Lifetime In Hell" on Massacre Records!

The band has been active since 1991 and has already released 3 albums: "Cycles" (1994), "No Hope For Humanity" (1996) as well as "Counterculture" (1997). They're a force on stage, and have toured with bands such as Metal Church, Widowmaker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Skyclad, Superjoint Ritual & Great White in the US and abroad.

"Lifetime In Hell" was originally planned to be the band's 1991 debut, but due to unforeseen circumstances with the independent record label they first signed to, "Cycles" became the band's official debut instead.

With legendary Producer Jim Morris, WICKED MARAYA recorded their 9 song effort at Morrisound Recording in Tampa, Florida. A heavy, bombastic and raw album, "Lifetime In Hell" is WICKED MARAYA at their earliest, hungry stage. An album setting the pre-cursor to the "Cycles"-sound with big, moody vocals and twin harmony guitar work!

Now, after 18 years, for the first time since 1998, WICKED MARAYA is proud to finally release "Lifetime In Hell", including 2 brand new, classic sounding songs - "Fall From Grace" and "Suicidal Dawn"!

WICKED MARAYA's 4th album "Lifetime In Hell" is set to be released in spring 2016 via Massacre Records.

Line-up

FALCO - Vocals
John Iadevaio - Bass
