DRAGONY Signs Worldwide Record Deal with Napalm Records!

Welcome to the family, DRAGONY!
Unstoppable Austrian symphonic power metal heroes DRAGONY have signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. Eight years have passed since they debuted with their first album Legends, and despite their humble beginnings back in 2007, the band is now a well-known representative of the genre. Owing to their outstanding live performance skills, DRAGONY quickly arose to share the stage with BLIND GUARDIAN, SONATA ARCTICA, POWERWOLF, VAN CANTO and many others.

After their second release, Shadowplay, the band performed at major European festivals as well as headlining Vienna’s popular Donauinselfest in 2016. Since then, DRAGONY followed up with two strong releases and reinforced their stance even more. Referencing fantasy-scenarios as well as pop-culture elements, like video games and movies, the Austrians conquered the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise and the legendary Wacken Open Air in 2019.

But DRAGONY are far from stalling and will move even further. Napalm Records is proud to join forces with the Austrian powerhouse and is ready to bring symphonic power metal to the next level!

DRAGONY on the signing:
“Metal is coming home! We are more than thrilled to announce that DRAGONY has signed a new worldwide record deal with Napalm Records!
As an Austrian band, it truly feels almost like a "homecoming" for us to not only work with one of the best labels for metal and rock music in the world today, but one that is also based in Austria. We feel that Napalm Records is the perfect place for our brand of tongue-in-cheek power metal, as the label is also home to many of our favorite acts from the genre.
We are very much looking forward to releasing our upcoming fourth album through Napalm, and we are very thankful and excited about all the possibilities of this new collaboration for the next chapter in DRAGONY history.
We stand - with forces united!
Stay glorious!”

RUMAHOY Releases New Single and Lyric Video
“Treasure Gun” | Watch HERE

Time II: Party out July 17, 2020 via Napalm Records
Pre-Order NOW!

The bullets are diamond and the trigger is gold, it's a really good gun and
it's very, very old!

The Pirate Metal prodigies RUMAHOY bestow yet another single fresh off their new album Time II: Party, to be released via Napalm Records on July 17, upon us. “Treasure Gun” shines with a steady rhythm, smashing drums and quick guitars - this track has it all.

The single is accompanied by a minimalistic though tasteful lyric video that will bring the story of the legendary gun closer to the viewer. Standing out due to the fact that, instead of shooting bullets, this firearm shoots diamonds after being loaded with valuable gems, the “Treasure Gun” is still just as deadly and can (and will!) be used by Captain Yarrface to plunder more treasures to make him an even more legendary pirate!

Captain Yarrface of RUMAHOY on “Treasure Gun”:
“NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE STORY OF THE GREATEST WEAPON EVER TO GRACE THE EARTH!! MY TREASURE GUN!! WELCOME TO THE SEA!!”

Watch the lyric video for “Treasure Gun” HERE!

YARRRRRR - The adventurous Captain Yarrface is back: RUMAHOY returns to the wild sea of pirate metal, party anthems and absolutely crazy, but equally legendary stories. Their upcoming banger, Time II: Party, will be released on July 17, 2020 via Napalm Records. The blazing opener, “Cowboys of the Sea”, marks Captain Yarrface’s return from the seas with heavy riffs and an unswerving, catchy melody. Marked by an indelible hook, “Treasure Gun” will have you on your feet, dancing, in no time. An upbeat melody paired with the epic story of the gun, this song is an absolute must-listen on this album! “Harambe, the Pirate Gorilla” is a classic pirate metal homage to the namesake whose death caused great controversy all over the world: if he were still alive, he could have joined RUMAHOY’s crew - hooks out for Harambe! The memorable “The Beer From My Town Is Better Than Yours” is the ultimate groovy party anthem for all the beer lovers out there. The track is filled with heavy guitar riffs and smashing drums that will make you want to grab a fresh pint of your favorite brand and drink up! It’s truly Time II: Party.

“Illuminate me, illuminate me
So that I can see
In the darkness
Without guidance!”


The wait is almost over! Cinematic metal icons DARK SARAH will release their new epos Grim in about two weeks on July 17, 2020 via Napalm Records. To lift some of the suspense, they have just released a third stunning single, “Illuminate”, along with a perfectly fitting music video, drawing the listener even deeper into their fairytale-like storyline of magical orbs and otherworldly magic.

Bursting with the tremendous energy of their music, DARK SARAH's cinematic metal hymn, “Illuminate”, quickly expands into a mighty summoning, enfolding its pure power in the spellbinding chorus that will send shivers down the listener's spine.

Heidi Parviainen states:
””Illuminate” is the name of the second ’orb’ that the protagonist Luna finds. It is a magical purple orb to summon the powers of wind and the moon. Luna asks the moon to illuminate her and to revive her magic powers to fight against the darkness upon the city of Grim.”

Watch the video for “Illuminate!” HERE:

 
Cinematic metal icons DARK SARAH start an astonishing new fairytale-like storyline with their fourth studio album, Grim. The beguiling new dimension, coalescing between crystal-clear vocals and propulsive hardness, draws you into the tempestuous maelstrom of their horror fantasy theme. Introducing the new protagonist, Luna, the band invites you to their mythical world of orbs, ravens, rabbit-headed people and Mörk, that’ll wrap you up in a surreal dreamscape.
Pre-Order New Album, Grim, HERE!
The overwhelming intensity of DARK SARAH’s masterfully told cinematic metal saga sends shivers down your spine and takes possession of heart and soul, while leaving you with pure emotions. Grim flourishes with its full magnitude, unfolding its potential with every second.

Heidi Parviainen on Grim:
“Our new album called Grim is a concept album like its predecessors, but Grim will start a new story line with a modern horror fantasy theme. Musically, Grim introduces a more modern sound and a taste of what's to come in the future - with a “DARK SARAH twist", of course. We´re very happy about this album and it has been really fun to make. Also creating the new visual brand and the Grim world has been an adventure already!”

DEVILDRIVER Reveals Menacing Second Single "Iona"
+ Eerie New Music Video


Watch the Official Music Video for “Iona”  HERE

New Full-Length Album, Dealing With Demons I, out October 9, 2020
Pre-Order HERE

Top-charting dark groove metal originators DEVILDRIVER recently announced the highly-anticipated release of their upcoming double album, Dealing With Demons. The first volume – entitled Dealing With Demons I – drops on October 9, 2020 via Napalm Records and marks the band’s first release of new, original material since 2016’s acclaimed Trust No One. Representing the onset of a final purging of the themes that have long possessed frontman Dez Fafara and DEVILDRIVER’s music, each track on Dealing With Demons I illustrates a different demon to be dealt with, or released.

Today, the band is following up on the release of their burgeoning latest single “Keep Away From Me” and its thought-provoking video with yet another unforgettable anthem – the menacing, mosh-ready second single "Iona". From the ominous siren at its start to its grooving verses, the track pulls no punches. The hair-raising, anthemic chorus line, “She carries a black rose…” beckons the listener again and again into a chilling ghost story! Travel the dark road into Iona's clutches via the heart-gripping music video, directed by Vicente Cordero, below.

Frontman Dez Fafara says about “Iona” and the demons that inspired the track:
"Iona is unlike any other DEVILDRIVER song we’ve put out. From the frantic verses to the haunting chorus, this song is another move forward to push our sound and the listener's ears into the fray! The chorus, “she carries a black rose, effigy from a story closed", tells the story of the long dead ghost of Iona and her obsession with death represented by the black roses in her hands – each one the soul of someone she’s taken from this life on a lonely dark road, assimilating their souls into black roses, which she carries for eternity.
This theme relates to myself and “Dealing With Demons” in that, often times, we as people have a hard time “letting go” of things. This can be applied to relationships, death, and so on. Iona carrying the black roses symbolizes her inability to move on – always seeking revenge. The past is exactly that – the past – it’s important to let go and not be stuck in a perpetual loop of living in it."

Respected standard bearers for 21st century metal, DEVILDRIVER have spent nearly two decades pursuing a course of uncompromising artistry and nonsense-free dedication to the road. Led by the prolific Dez Fafara, the Californian crew have earned their reputation as one of the hardest working bands on the planet, while issuing a steady succession of brutal but distinctive albums along the way.

Dealing With Demons I showcases the supreme form of the band – Dez, guitarists Mike Spreitzer and Neal Tiemann, drummer Austin D’Amond and bassist Diego "Ashes" Ibarra. This isn’t just some of the most vicious DEVILDRIVER material to date, but some of their most lethally memorable too. Produced and engineered by Steve Evetts with additional engineering from guitarist Mike Spreitzer, it’s a triumph for teamwork and tenacity.

With new milestones like Dez Fafara’s eerie verses on “Wishing” and the frontman’s first co-authored lyric (the seething, poignant “Nest Of Vipers” was written by Dez and Neal Tiemann), Dealing With Demons I ferociously delivers the goods while kicking open several new doors for DEVILDRIVER to power through in the future. From the self-explanatory, explosive opener “Keep Away From Me” to the chilling imagery of “Iona”, this album is powerful evidence that Dez and his band mates have given DEVILDRIVER a volatile, visceral kick in the ass. Demons are getting dealt with in the harshest of manners.

Dez Fafara adds:
“It’s time to lay it all out, on two records. I’m never gonna revisit these subjects again. I’ve been writing about this sort of human nature, disloyalty and dishonesty, love and loss, since the beginning of my career. I am going in a more lyrically woke direction in the future. A lot of people say my music gives them strength. But what they don’t realize is that these topics haunt me. Over the course of these last few years we fled from wildfires, my wife battled cancer and now we are going through a pandemic… so it is what it is… let’s dump it all on the table and purge. I want to go through different topics in the future, so here we are now. I’ve laid it all out on a double record for all of you to hear.”

This is just the beginning – fans should be prepared for the onslaught of what is to come with the impending second volume of the double album, which promises to go even harder. This is a two-part acceleration into the future – after witnessing Dealing With Demons I, listeners will be clamoring for the second half!

Dealing With Demons I Tracklist:
1. Keep Away From Me
2. Vengeance Is Clear
3. Nest Of Vipers
4. Iona
5. Wishing
6. You Give Me A Reason To Drink (feat. Simon Blade Fafara)
