Cyprus-based power metal band Winter's Verge has checked in with the following year-end recap and announcement about lineup changes:
"To all fans, friends and Family of Winter's Verge,
"This year has been a very rough year to us and in general to all the people of Cyprus. After going through many problems, we can finally say that the bands troubles are in our past and we looking towards the future, stronger and more focused.
"We did have some difficulties along the way, that led to 2 line up changes. Our long time friend and original member of the band, keyboardist - Stefanos Psillides had to leave, and is replaced by our new family member - Guitarist - Andy Kopriva. Stefanos Psillides will write a few words to you all within the next couple of days.
"The other Line up change we had is the man behind the drums. Close friend of the band Chris Ioannides left the band and is replaced by drummer Danny Koullis Georgiou Conway. Welcome to the W.V. family my friend."
Chris comments on leaving the band: "Hi all, Due to increasing work load on my other projects, sadly, I had to part ways with Winter's Verge. The past five years have been great! We made two awesome albums and had wonderful times on our tours and concerts but the time has come to move on so that I would not get in the way of the band's progress.
"I am sure that the band has a lot in store for the future and will continue to please the fans with great albums and magnificent live performances. They will always be my brothers and I will be happy if our paths cross for any collaborations in the future. I would also like to thank the amazing WV fans who have shown me nothing but respect throughout these 5 years. Rock On!"
Pitch Black Records is extremely proud to announce the release of a compilation album featuring bands from Cyprus.
The compilation is titled “Bloodbrothers II – A Compilation of Recordings by Rock/Metal Bands From Cyprus," and it celebrates the legacy of the original “Bloodbrothers” compilation, released in 1997 and now considered a hard-to-find, cult classic. “Bloodbrothers II” is available for pre-order here.
Including power, traditional, thrash, death metal, alternative, progressive, and punk rock, “Bloodbrothers II” aims to showcase some of the most talented bands Cyprus currently has to offer. Pitch Black Records comments:
"The title of the compilation refers to the strong ties between members of the Cyprus scene. It may be a small scene but it is (and has always been) one that is very strong, proud and united, full of passion and support for one another. Turning the phrase 'blood brothers' into one word is a deliberate attempt to further emphasize this strong bond that exists between the members of the Cyprus scene.
"Including new and unreleased material from internationally renowned bands (such as 'Fallen Angels and Lost Souls' of scene veterans Armageddon and Arrayan Path’s 'The Bible Bleeds'), cherished classics from the Cyprus underground and the first exciting blasts from a fresh, new generation, 'Bloodbrothers II' runs the gamut from mega-studio-awesomeness to raw garage demo; but the musicianship and passion are evident throughout this compilation!
"'Bloodbrothers II' will only be available on CD, at a special discounted price. It will be released in Cyprus first, on May 28th and worldwide on June 10th. The first 100 ordered from the Pitch Black Records online store will also include the original 'Bloodbrothers' compilation as a bonus disc! More...
