Nordic Mission are proud to announce the distribution of this fantastic re-release! Norway’s metal scene in the early 90’s: During a time when other fellow countrymen and extreme metal fans were occupied with burning down churches and other criminal activities, even including murders, a small group of people with a totally different view of life’s destiny and purpose stood up. Even inspired by the musial aspect of their «brothers», the so-called black metal movement, these guys were ahead of their time. Hated by the scene and misunderstood by the church, Antestor rehearsed in the underground surrounded by traditional Norwegian landscape to create a unique and atmospheric sound. Call it black metal if you like. Or «sorrow metal» which is perhaps a better description to the musical as well as the lyrical feeling on “Kongsblod”.

But here it is 20 years after; Continue reading »

Power Quest, the renowned melodic power metal band based in the UK released their new album “Sixth Dimension” in October last year through Inner Wound Recordings. The title track ‘The Sixth Dimension’ is now available for streaming below. The song was written by Steve Williams and Richard West [Threshold] and features guest vocals by Anette Olzon [The Dark Element, ex. Nightwish].

Steve Williams of Power Quest comments:

“It was brilliant to have the opportunity to write this song together with Richard West. We’ve known each other for many years and Richard was previously involved in a production capacity with the Master of Illusion album back in 2008. It’s turned out to be one of my favourite PQ songs and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to work with Richard in the future. It was also fantastic to be able to secure the services of one of my favourite vocalists, Anette Olzon, to be part of this song and it was a real pleasure to work with her.” Continue reading »
