“SEVEN SPIRES ANNOUNCES THIRD ALBUM
GODS OF DEBAUCHERY COMING SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 VIA FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL
FIRST SINGLE & VIDEO, THE TITLE TRACK, OUT TODAY
Coming off their critically praised sophomore album, "Emerald Seas", Seven Spires are set to return with their third, and by far, most ambitious album to date, "Gods Of Debauchery" on September 10, 2021. Today, fans can get their first listen to new music with the release of the single and video for the title track.
"Gods Of Debauchery" offers an incredible feast of music styles within the broad tent of heavy metal. From symphonic to progressive to black to death metal influences, coupled with emotional ballads, this record is an exquisite sonic and lyrical journey for the discerning metalhead. This band is the present and the future of the genre and continue Frontiers' tradition of identifying and signing the most promising young talents.
After the release of "Emerald Seas" in February of 2020, the band had multiple amazing support slots lined up to promote the record on the road. They were geared up and in fighting form, ready to bring their music to the masses and show the world what they are all about. Plans were quickly changed weeks after the album' release due to the coronavirus pandemic though and soon it became obvious that touring would be ground to a halt for a while. So, the band took the opportunity to commence work on their follow-up album, which wound up becoming the mammoth 70+ minute masterpiece that is "Gods Of Debauchery". This album, epic in scope and reach, shows progression well beyond their years.
1. Wanderer’s Prayer
2. Gods Of Debauchery
3. The Cursed Muse
4. Ghost Of Yesterday
6. Echoes Of Eternity
7. Shadow On An Endless Sea

Dialith are back with new EP, Atrophy - out July 9th
DIALITH RETURNS WITH NEW EP: 'ATROPHY'
Nearly two years after our debut album 'Extinction Six', we're back with a brand new EP containing what we believe to be our best songs yet!
Mixed and mastered by Andy LaRocque (guitarist of King Diamond), 'Atrophy' delivers on the crushing riffs and epic orchestrals that you've come to expect from us.
'Atrophy' is the first release in a planned series of three. Writing and recording another full-length album that would meet our high standards would take several years. Instead, we decided as a group to release the second album in chunks, in order to avoid long breaks with no content at all. There will be two EPs leading up to an eventual full-length, which will contain new songs as well as the previously released songs from the EPs.
We have once again partnered with the extremely talented Marta Sokolowska for the cover art. The next two releases will reveal the fate of the woman in the picture...
'Atrophy' will be released on July 9th, 2021
1. Ignite the Sky
2. Sweet as Wine
3. A Moment of Temptation (Interlude)

NEW ALBUM ARTWORK & TRACK LISTING REVEALED
The first steps into the real world are here. We are happy to inform you that today we can unveil the artwork and track listing of our upcoming 2nd full-length album, which will bear the name "The Night Sky". Scheduled Release Date: October 1st, 2021.
The album will hold 8 epic, diverse, dynamic and intense songs, that showcase the band's best and most mature work to date. An album beyond genre boundaries, an album made without disruptive influences from the outside world. We still like to call it Melancholic Metal, but we know this doesn't say much to some of you. We touch and absorb the intensions behind doom and gothic metal, as well as hints of atmospheric and post metal. But most of all, it sounds like Vetrar Draugurinn.
Track listing "The Night Sky":
1. The Observer (5:45)
2. The Night Sky (7:36)
3. Lansdown Hill (4:46) (featuring Mark Kelson of The Eternal)
4. The Fear of Letting Go (6:23)
5. The Lonely (6:30)
6. Our Lady of Perpetual Emptiness (6:06)
7. As I Drift on an Ocean towards a Distant Shore (7:36)
8. Reynisfjara (10:32)
The beautiful and atmospheric artwork and layout of this album will be once again created by the talented Gogo Melone ART.
This album is a big step forward for the band and shows that they have carved their own niche in the scene. Lifting this album above the maelstrom and making it their best to date.
A special (limited) pre-order/funding will be available from June 1st, 2021.
The band is releasing the album under their own label Dark Skies Coming, which means a lot of extra work and asking the help from others. The special pre-order is to generate funds to take care of the marketing side of this release, so the world will know it exists and it gets the attention this epic album deserves.
We will be offering the album as Digital Download, CD and vinyl, as well as some limited edition perks. We hope you all are as excited about this release as we are, and we hope we can count on your support to make this release as epic as its songs. More news to come soon!

New Enemy Of Reality Official song/video Tin Patrida M’ Ehasa
The band states:
“We are very excited to present to you our latest work.
May 19 marks the remembrance of the Pontian Greek Genocide (1916 - 1923), one of the darkest moments in Greece’s history. Entire villages and cities were devastated.
By 1923, out of 700.000 Pontian Greeks who lived in Asia Minor, as many as 353.000 were killed and almost all the rest were forced to flee to neighbouring countries. This was the end of one of the ancient Greek civilizations in Asia Minor.
We will never forget…
This video is dedicated to all those who have been violently forced to flee their homes and countries.

Muses Of Metal was founded by Tayla Dickinson in July 2008. Initially it started as a forum but soon the webzine was added which includes various reviews of albums, concerts, EPs and so on as well as a growing selection of interviews.
Later, Muses Of Metal started their own award-winning radio show, running on Stafford FM and landing a permanently slot on KUBE Radio since 2012. While based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, we launched our own events with successful shows including November-7, Apparition, Bad Pollyanna, Pulverise, Fear Me December and many more.
In 2017, Tayla started managing the Leeds based rapcore/numetal band Pulverise.
Early 2018, and Muses Of Metal relocated to Peterborough and once again started putting on live shows. We now define ourselves as an events, promotions and management company - but hope to continue our original webzine in the same capacity.
