Metal To Release "Proving Our Mettle" Album

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.”

And it’s a fight they’ve taken to the streets, with the lads having made a name for themselves on the local scene as an act with more hair, denim, guitar solos and high-pitched metallic screams than you can wield a flaming sword at. “We’ve played at just about every premium venue in New South Wales, from the Sandringham Stadium to the Tempe Thunderdome,” says Rayzor.

Pre-orders are available at this location. "Proving Our Mettle" was recorded at Studios 301 in Sydney by Tim Carr (Matt Corby, The Herd) and mixed at Adversary Studios, Sydney by Aaron Worboys (Dungeon, Bane of Isildur, Battalion, Pestilential Shadows). The cover art has been painstakingly created by All Things Rotten (1349, Children of Bodom, Snowy Shaw, Destroyer 666, Hirax).

Formed in 2008, Metal is comprised of band members Rayzor (Bane of Isildur, Malice, and Burghers of Calais) on bass and lead vocals, Danny (Battalion, Baratheon), Chinch (Battalion, Rampage, and Burghers of Calais) both on lead guitar and backing vocals, and Aaron (Bane of Isildur, Malice, Sorathian Dawn, Ill Omen) on drums.
