International Melodic Metal band TRAGUL released their second single “The Message” from the upcoming debut album. The mix was done by Aldo Benegas at Blind Owl studios and mastered by Mika Jussila from Finnvox Studios.
TRAGUL was formed at the end of 2016 by Adrian Benegas, keyboardist and composer of the band “Pergana”. It features the participation and contribution of reknown metal stars such as Zuberoa Aznarez (Diabulus in Musica), Steve Conley (Flotsam and Jetsam), Oliver Holzwarth (ex Blind Guardian, Tarja) and Alex Holzwarth (ex Rhapsody of Fire)
MAUSOLEUM GATE’s 2014 self-titled debut album was not as much of a revelation as it was a reminder of how vintage metal should be played. Bucking virtually every modern production trend, the Finns greeted audiences with a warm analog production sound, flanked by the star-gazing vocals of V-P Varpula and the classy twin guitar action of
Count LaFey and Kasperi Puranen. Critical and fan acclaim soon followed, along with key festival appearances at Keep It True and Muskelrock, with many hailing
MAUSOLEUM GATE as one of the most exciting new retro metal bands on the scene. Continue reading Finland’s Mausoleum Gate Releasing ‘Into a Dark Divinity’ September 8 on Cruz Del Sur Music→
New Shiraz Lane material coming up already later this year
Finnish young rock dynamite Shiraz Lane will return to European venues in October and November 2017, supporting their great fellow countrymen Brother Firetribe, who are celebrating their 15th anniversary this year!
Shiraz Lane´s been working on their 2nd album in Stockholm for the whole year with a Swedish songwriter/ producer Per Aldeheim (Def Leppard, Pain, Fatboy, Soilwork…). The album will be out in early 2018, and the guys are super happy about both with their results in the studio and these upcoming Fall live dates:
“We are extremely excited to join forces and support Brother Firetribe through Europe during the upcoming Autumn of 2017. It will be a pleasure to revisit some of the awesome venues and embrace the atmosphere we were so warmly welcomed on our last tour, and are thrilled to bring our caravan to new destinations for your eyes and ears to witness. You might even have an exclusive chance to hear some new material we have been working so hard on throughout the year. Perhaps we might even release a single before the leaves fall from the trees? Time will tell..!”
Shiraz Lane will continue the album´s vocal recordings in Gröndahl Studios in this month and will play live this Summer still in Üferrock (DE), Summer Breeze (DE) and Hair Metal Heaven (UK), before focusing on the European tour, beginning on the 11th of October.

Ukrainian Fantasy/Symphonic Metal band Kortofertos has inked a worldwide management deal with GlobMetal Promotions. Last year the band released their new album «The Frozen Book». The album was recorded/mixed and mastered at “Sershen Music Studio” by Sergey Sershen.
Kortofertos was formed as one-man project in 2015 at Kyyiv, Ukraine by Alexander Shvets. His idea was to combine Fantasy in three aspects: metal, story line and art. For this moment the band released 3 albums and 2 singles.
Darkenhöld was formed in 2008 at Nice, France by Aldebaran (former member of Artefact), Cervantes and Aboth (Continuum).
