Heliosaga’s debut release is finally ready; Towers In The Distance to be released in August

August 2nd, 2014
by EvilG
Heliosaga is excited to announce the long awaited debut “Towers In The Distance” available August 22nd worldwide via digital and CD formats.

Heliosaga is excited to announce the long awaited debut “Towers In The Distance” available August 22nd worldwide via digital and CD formats.

Heliosaga is excited to announce the long awaited debut “Towers In The Distance” available August 22nd worldwide via digital and CD formats.

The anticipated album is rooted deep in European tradition, combining the best elements of power, symphonic, and gothic metal. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Xandria, Delain, and Leaves Eyes.

The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life.

“Towers In The Distance” lyrics are deeply personal, and the primary themes revolve around the state of the world, mortality and the personal struggles that all encounter. Mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) at Phon Studio and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios. Bass guitar tracks were recorded by Chad Novell (Fibonacci Sequence) and a guest guitar solo was performed by Gilbert Pot (Elegy).

Heliosaga was founded in 2010 by Damien Villarreal (keys/guitar) in San Antonio, Texas, soon after joined by Jordan Ames (drums). By September of 2010, the line-up was complete and the first practices were held. The ensuing year would see a five song demo, the first shows and various line-up changes. In 2012, Chelsea Knaack joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded the single “The Light of Ardor”, which was released in January 2013. Shortly before the recorded single was release, the band relocated to Minnesota and continued the writing process.

A lyric video for A Tower So Tall can be enjoyed here:

by EvilG

London metallers SAVAGE MESSIAH have announced that fellow Brits and labelmates THE MORE I SEE will support them on select dates of their recently-announced UK tour, which kicks off on October 25th in Oxford.

SAVAGE MESSIAH frontman DAVE SILVER comments:

“We’re really pleased to be bringing The More I See out with us in November.  We’ve known the guys for a while and they’re a great bunch, and also a great new British heavy metal band.  Bring on November!”

THE MORE I SEE lead guitarist GIZZ BUTT adds:

“It’s an absolute honour and a very exciting prospect that we will be touring with Savage Messiah in the fall of 2014.  After the ‘Plague of Conscience’ album being eternally on repeat in The More I See band van, then ‘The Fateful Dark’ arriving in March 2014, and THEN to share quality time with Dave Silver as a fellow Heavy Metal Truant on the 160-mile cycle ride ‘to Download or bust’, it’s a privilege to be able to support a band we all really dig and feel akin with from a musical and labelmates perspective.  FUCKING BRING THE FUCKER ON!!!”

Madam X

MADAM X

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Madam X is an American hard rock/glam metal band formed in 1981 in Detroit by the Petrucci sisters, Maxine and Roxy. The original line-up was completed by bassist Chris “Godzilla” Doliber and vocalist Bret Kaiser. The band relocated to New York and got soon signed to Don Arden’s Jet Records. The band released their debut album WE RESERVE THE RIGHT in 1984. A single, “High in High School” was a success and not least because of it’s now legendary video which was played heavily in MTV. Unfortunately, the band drifted into trouble and after several line-up changes they finally disbanded in 1988. But sometimes things do change. In the spring of 2014 the band announced that they’re going to re-unite and soon after it was announced that the original line-up of Madam-X would perform their first re-union show in the mighty Sweden Rock festival in early June 2014. There I sat down with the whole band and tried to find about the reasons behind this re-union, the past and the future of Madam X. Read On!
