The Norwegian heavy metal veterans from Guardians Of Time have signed a deal with both WormHoleDeath Records and Tmina Records for the release of the “Rage and Fire” album. The band comments:
“Guardians Of Time are excited to announce that our new album 'Rage and Fire' will be released in both Western and Eastern territories on Wormholedeath and Tmina Records early 2015. The album will be distributed by Aural Music. 'Rage and Fire' consists of 10 songs of metal. Fast, loud and heavy. If you are a fan of screaming vocals, blasting drums and double never ending guitar solos you sure don’t wanna miss out on this one!"
The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman (Dimmu Borgir, Hammerfall, In Flames, Opeth, Soilwork etc etc) and the cover artwork was created by Carlos Cabrera.
WormHoleDeath stated: “I am absolutely proud to be part of this. Cooperating with our brothers at Tmina Records through their bands is always great and exciting. Guardians of Time are an awesome metal band and we are more than happy to support them and their new album. I am sure that this cooperation will lead us all to great results and I would like the guys for believing in us… We will do everything possible to support them! Now, let’s stop talking and listen to their music, they deserve it!”
Tmina Records adds: “Since Tmina Records was born we hardly awaited our chance to sign some serious Heavy Metal band. Heavy Metal in it’s original form with crushing riffs and highlight melodies. After so many years our quest is over and we couldn’t get better example of what we wanted but Guardians Of Time! After 3 studio albums, thousands of touring kilometers Guardians are back with the new brutal recording that will definitely show to all that real Heavy Metal is still alive and strong. Prepare yourselves for Rage And Fire!” More...
Norwegian black/extreme metallers Hades Almighty have been confirmed to headline the first day of the Elements Of Metal Festival, set to take place December 3-4 in Sandefjord, Norway. Red Harvest will be headlining the second day. Also scheduled to perform at the festival are Guardians of Time, Octavia Sperati, Grand Alchemist, Cutthroat, Lucid Fear, V:28, Harm and Arch Nemesis. More information is available at the festival's web site.
In other news, Hades Almighty will appear on Norwegian national TV, on the program "Metal Blender," on Thursday, November 11 on NRK2.
Hades Almighty have uploaded the video for their song "Submission Equals Suicide" at this location (Quicktime).
"Submission Equals Suicide" comes off the group's recently reissued "forgotten classic," "The Pulse of Decay," now available through Dark Essence Records. The group originally released the album in 2001 through Psycho Bitch Records, the label formed by the band's then-management. That resulted in "no distribution," making it virtually impossible for fans to find the album, according to a posting on the group's web site. Now the CD has been re-released with new cover design, three bonus songs and the "Submission Equals Suicide" video.
Formed in 1992, Hades Almighty are currently working on new material for a tentative early 2005 release.
