Australia’s premier "true, false-slaying" heavy metal band Metal will release new full-length album "Proving Our Mettle" on Friday April 19 through iTunes and selected music stores.
The album features 11 tracks including the foot stomping anthem "Heavy Metal," the crushing ‘riff monster’ "Fighting For Metal" and the rollicking, rum-soaked sea shanty, "The Buccaneer’s Revenge."
For the uninitiated, Metal is a band straight out of the old school of traditional balls to the wall heavy metal. Think back to those heady glory days of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motorhead, and Manowar, “when men were men and songs were forged with blood, sweat and steel,” says bassist and lead singer, Rayzor Ray.
“Proving our Mettle is a bare-chested scream of defiance, and a rallying call to the true,” continues Rayzor. “It is our banner planted firmly in the ground and from here we stand and fight. Fighting for Metal is not just a song: it’s a mission statement.” More...
After 2 years, Australian “true metal” band Metal is planning a live appearance. Metal’s founder Razor “Sting” Ray said in an official statement:
“September 26th will see the first Full Scale Metal assault. The line up is different to what fans have known previously, but I assure you it has never been Truer. Chinch 'The Boss' Chinchella has returned from living in Europe to bring his unrelenting shredding back to the band. Rob 'Smithy' Blacksmith brings a voice of blazing steel, without parallel amongst this generation’s Heavy Metal Vocalists. Col 'Ice Cold' Collins has joined on drums, though he makes them sound more like hammer blows from Thor himself than mere drums. Danny 'Diamond' Crusher and I are still at the core of the band and have been working tirelessly to bring forth unquestionable, unconquerable, uncompromising, incomparable Heavy Metal that will tear the face off the False and leave the True mesmerised for days afterwards. September 26th is just the beginning, but it is also the end. The end of False Metal in Australia standing unopposed. Never again. We will prove our mettle, and this time there will be no respite!”
Metal will be playing hits of their upcoming album “Proving Our Mettle” set for release sometime in 2010. The show details are as follows:
Sep 26, 2009 @ 8:00P - Lansdowne Hotel, Sydney, New South Wales
