PITCH BLACK RECORDS is pleased to announce the addition of Greek melodic heavy/power metallers EMERALD SUN into its roster of artists with the band’s sophomore release, “Regeneration”, scheduled for release on February 11th, 2011.
Formed in 1998, in Thessaloniki, Greece, EMERALD SUN has since then performed live numerous times becoming an extremely sought-after live act. Past performances included their participation at festivals such as March Metal Day, Metal Healing, Maximum Rock Fest and others. The band’s excellent two demos led to the release of their first full length in 2007 (“Escape from Twilight”) which was later released in Japan with exclusive bonus material.
“Regeneration” includes ten new tracks of utterly brilliant melodic heavy/power metal! It was recorded, mixed and mastered at Maranis Studios in Backnang, Germany by Vagelis Maranis (ex-Sanvoisen) who also lends his voice on the 12-minute epic “Fantasmagoria.”
The CD version of “Regeneration” includes as a bonus track a killer cover version of 80’s pop classic “Holding out for a Hero” and will be available worldwide through Pitch Black Records and Twilight-Distribution. The album will also be available for digital download through several mp3 stores.

6. Speak of the Devil
