Gloryful's new album "Ocean Blade" will be released on April 25th, 2014 via Massacre Records. The album was mixed by Dan Swanö and mastered by Powerwolf's guitarist Charles Greywolf. Kris Verwimp is responsible for the cover artwork.
Today drummer Hartmut Stoof has released a new track-by-track breakdown covering the second half of the album. Here's what Stoof had to say about the album:
Black Legacy: Black Legacy is more or less the ballad on the album. It contains many folk influences and some instruments from this specific period. This song is musically and lyrically meant as the calm before the storm.
All Men To The Arms: This one is also very strong and powerful, expressing an overflowing energy. As the title suggests, this song is a call - for the crew to fight and for you out there to bang your head and raise your fist! The drumming and guitar picking reinforce the lyrics, that describe the battle between the crew and mighty Sedna in the first part of this song. Lyrical based stops in the chorus create catchy hooklines. As you will recognize, the second half is completely different, starting with a guitar solo and a typical Manowar-styled verse, leading to the chorus, in which the title is demandingly sung. To put the final touches to the song, Adrian Weiss performs a killer guitar solo.More...

The band has now also introduced new bassist Daniel Perl. Shortly before the recording of the upcoming album "Ocean Blade," former bassist Oliver Karasch decided to leave Gloryful Oliver stated:
"Due to personal reasons, I can't fulfill the role as bassist of Gloryful anymore. It was a great time and I will always cherish the memories of great shows and the best company anyone could imagine. This has been the best band I ever played in and I'm glad that a good replacement could be found, otherwise I wouldn't have left."
Daniel Perl comments about his new role as Gloryful's bassist: "Working his artilleristic instrument, he had flattened the ground - besides his band members - for the infantristic sound to take over.
As this good man has taken a back seat, it was my call to enter the band. With great pleasure and honor I'm taking the task that has been Oliver's since the start of Gloryful. Locked and loaded and ready to rumble in the name of heavy metal, let the war begin!" More...
