Silent shadows have been reigning over the lands of the Twilight Kingdoms for a while for some very special reason... diligent dwarves, eager elves, mighty mages and the entire realm has been dutifully gathering resources over the past few months in support of Swedish adventure metallers Twilight Force crafting their new opus "Dawn Of The Dragonstar," the band's follow-up to the much-loved "Heroes Of Mighty Magic" (2016). Once again recorded in the group's own Twilight Forge, the album will not only present ten new stories to their loyal Knights Of Twilight's Might, but also introduce the companions' new troubadour, Allyon, who was called upon by the prophecies to join the fellowship in 2018.

The band lets be known, "Lo and behold! We are beyond elated to finally unveil the third opus of Twilight Force: 'Dawn Of The Dragonstar.' The absolutely magnificent artwork by the mighty Kerem Beyit once again brilliantly captures the adventurous and magical world of the Twilight Kingdoms; and a sparkling adventure it shall be indeed. 'Dawn Of The Dragonstar' will be unleashed upon the realm of the living on August 16th, so we humbly ask for your patience for just a little while longer. In the meantime, practice your battle cries, sharpen your swords, and dust off your spell tomes. Make sure you are prepared to join and experience our triptych adventure."

Exumer Posts New Music Video Online

Last month, legendary multinational thrash metallers Exumer released their fifth full-length, "Hostile Defiance," via Metal Blade Records. The album hit the German album charts on position 42 which marks the highest chart entry in the history of the band! Exumer has now launched a video for their latest hit single, "King's End"! Please check it out below.

The idea behind Exumer's new video clip "King's End" is to visually pay homage to the look and visual aesthetics of the MTV/Headbanger's Ball era clips from the late 80s and early 90s. Especially when CGI became available as a tool to add effects that were otherwise financially impossible to obtain. The clip was entirely shot, edited and directed by Goreminister in Essen (Turock Club)/Germany during Exumer's last European dates.

Exumer singer Mem V. Stein: "We were approached by our buddy Goreminister, who has his own You Tube channel and is a pretty known character in the Metal scene in and around Essen, if we would be interested in a new video that resembles old Headbanger's Ball clips. We instantly were on board with the concept and are now excited to launch something that uniquely resembles the early 90s over the top videos we devoured back when Metal was still on Television."
