by EvilG

Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon, Star One, Guilt Machine) & Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering, Devin Townsend Project) recently revealed that they had joined forces for new band The Gentle Storm, and they can now reveal that they have signed a deal with InsideOutMusic for the release of their debut album early next year.

Arjen comments: “We are thrilled to be able to strengthen our relationship with InsideOut Music as The Gentle Storm’s label.” Anneke adds: “We’re in the middle of recording these amazing new songs and are very excited the label shows an equal amount of faith in this release. We can’t wait for people to hear it and are happy this superb team will help us spread the word.”

Having originally worked together back in 1998 on Ayreon’s album ‘Into The Electric Castle’, and reconvening again for the seventh Ayreon album ‘01011001’, The Gentle Storm sees the duo collaborate for a full double-album that will see the light of day next year. Anneke will also take the music on the road in 2015, backed by a band of Dutch musicians; however Arjen himself will not take part.

 

Arjen Lucassen recently picked up the Virtuoso award at this year’s Progressive Music Awards, in front of an audience that included Peter Gabriel & Rick Wakeman amongst other progressive rock legends. Last year saw the release of the latest album from his Ayreon project entitled ‘The Theory Of Everything’ which featured guest appearances from the aforementioned Wakeman as well as Steve Hackett and Keith Emerson.

 

Anneke Van Giersbergen has also had an extremely busy 12 months following the release of her latest solo album ‘Drive’, playing live across the world with her solo band, Devin Townsend Project, and with Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema. She will also be playing a special anniversary show with former band The Gathering in November as well has having taken part in Devin Townsend’s forthcoming new album Z².

Visigoth release new “Dungeon Master” single from forthcoming Metal Blade Records debut

October 8th, 2014
by EvilG

Salt Lake City’s Visigoth have released the debut single from their upcoming full length album, due out in early 2015. The purveyors of true heavy metal have unleashed “Dungeon Master” across all digital music outlets! Download now via iTunes or Amazon MP3, and stream onSpotify! The band will also be joining King Diamond and Jess and the Ancient Ones as the openers for the October 26th show at The Complex in Salt Lake City, UT! Tickets for that show are available now at showclix.com.

Additional details about Visigoth‘s upcoming album will be made available later this year.

About Visigoth:
When the gods called for metal traditional and true, Visigoth answered. The year was 2010, and Jake Rogers allied his bardic magic with Lee Campana’s six-string sorcery to forge a tribute to the old sound of heavy metal. Thus the demo “Vengeance” was born.

Its completion sent tremors throughout the salted wastes of the Salt Lake City underground, attracting the attention of powerful musical forces. Jamison Palmer slung his mighty axe over one shoulder and trudged his way through the ice and snow of this inhospitable realm, lending his soul-rending riffcraft to the legion. He was soon joined by the mystical bass groove thaumaturgies of Matt Brotherton and the unrelenting storm-throned siege of Mikey Treseder’s furious drumming. Together, they became known as Visigoth.

As a constellation they traveled throughout the Salt Lake valley, determined to liberate their allies from the enemies of true metal. All who heard their mighty riffs, scorching leads, and infectious choruses joined the Iron Brotherhood, becoming acolytes of all things heavy. After many hard-fought battles, the band came together to record the “Final Spell” EP in 2012, sealing the pact between them with rites ancient and sorcerous.

Visigoth plays heavy metal that hearkens back to the golden age of ironclad riffwork and powerful vocals. They pay tribute to the titans of steel that left their mark on the history of the genre, and their earth-shaking sound echoes with a deep reverence for their roots. Visigothgoes above and beyond mere imitation, making their own musical mark on the genre they lovingly embrace. In Visigoth‘s realm, there are no frills, no gimmicks; there is only heavy metal.
