Brother Firetribe stream new single For Better Or For Worse

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 27th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Finnish melodic rock maestros Brother Firetribe, who boast Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen amongst their ranks, have made their brand new single, titled For better Or For Worse, available for streaming via Soundcloud for a limited time only. The song is taken from their third and upcoming album Diamond In The Firepit which is set for release through Spinefarm Records in May for the UK, Finland and Europe and in June for North America. Singer Pekka Ansio Heino spoke about the band’s upcoming release:

We’re thrilled to be back in action after 5 years which seems like a life time! We wouldn’t be THIS thrilled if the new album hadn’t turned out be exactly how we wanted it to be. It’s just as bold, big, polished, hooky and sticky as we pictured it. A lot of hard work was spent making it happen and now it’s time for the best part of making music; taking it out and playing it live. We can’t wait to meet our old friends again and hopefully make some new ones along the way. Hope you enjoy Diamond In The Firepit. Thanks for still being there and sorry for the delay, let’s have some serious fun!

Amberian Dawn sign to Napalm Records

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 13th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Following the release of their critically acclaimed 2012 release Circus Black, Finnish symphonic metallers Amberian Dawn have announced their signing to Austrian metal label Napalm Records. Of course, the news doesn’t stop there as the band will be releasing their next album, Magic Forest, in June this year through Napalm Records. Songwriter Tuomas Seppälä comments:

I’m very glad about this new deal with Napalm Records. I’m sure that our cooperation will be successful and enjoyable. This label showed interest in us at the very beginning of our career so I feel very comfortable working with this great label today! Together with our booking agency/management Twisted Talent Concerts we’re surely going to make something happen here. New album Magic Forest is AD‘s first studio album with singer Capri.

Now with her I’ve been able to fulfil some of my early dreams with musical styles and this new style is really big, fresh and naturally flowing. New sound is more keyboard driven and the vocal lines have some strong influence of 1980’s. But since this is AD, there’s of course also some fast songs included and some really serious guitar and keyboard shredding too. Mr. Jens Johansson of Stratovarius once again contributed some really awesome playing in form of one keyboard solo. Thank you Jens, you’ve been supporting us so many years now.

This is also first time on AD‘s history when we had an actual production team put together. Thank you Mikko P. Mustonen and Capri for your awesome support and work. We really have an extraordinary good production team here. We had so much fun in doing this album and you can really sense and hear the relaxed atmosphere we had on the process.

The tracklisting for Magic Forest is as follows:

    1. Cherish My Memory
    2. Dance Of Life
    3. Magic Forest
    4. Agonizing Night
    5. Warning
    6. Son Of Rainbow
    7. I’m Still Here
    8. Memorial
    9. Endless Silence
    10. Green-Eyed
