WIDOW “Life´s Blood” CD out 11th of November 2011

Fancy on melodic Power Metal from the United States? Then you could find favour by WIDOW! Founded in 2000 in North Carolina, there were already three albums released: “Midnight Strikes” (2003), “On Fire” (2005) and “Nightlife” (2007). Also a gig at Germanys Swordbrothers Festival in 2010 has been played. The new piece “Life’s Blood” is the first WIDOW-album, which will be released through Pure Steel Records, after the two previous albums.

On the twelve actual tracks you’ll get a great mixture of fresh heaviness and enthralling melodies. The inclined listener will hit more than a smell of NWoBHM, of course together with some well-known US-Bands, but never forgetting the European origins, which makes the band outstanding in the US-Sector. Sometimes the guys pound through sublime midtempo-areas (“Embrace It” and “Behind The Light”), a bit faster they get by twin-guitar-orgies such as “Take Hold Of The Night”, “The Burning Ones” or the last song “The One I Know”. Of course they also offer some calm parts, for example at the beginning of “Another Fallen Angel” and “In Dreams”. The production has got a very powerful strength, but is also made traditional. So you can expect a bold sound, but don’t have to get feared of a faceless sterile-production. The clear, very outstanding vocals, which are sometimes a bit emotional too, fits perfect to the majestic twin-guitar-leads, so no follower of this genre will be disappointed! In short: US Metal deluxe!
