After playing shows all over Switzerland, the release of their debut album “Risen to Fight” (2015) marked an important moment for Morgarten.The band received positive feedback from all over Europe and soon they marched upon international territories, supporting other warriors like the Wind Rose dwarfs, the dark people of Nightland and the hordes of Welicoruss. Besides several short European tours Morgarten appeared on international festivals, like Occultfest (NL), Brainstorm Festival (NL), Devils Rock For An Angel (BE), Mannried Open Air (CH), Winter Armageddon (DE) and Rise Of Trolls (BE). Also the band was asked as opening-act for Finntroll on their visit to Switzerland in 2018.

Morgarten now returns with their new album “Cry of the Lost”, which surely won’t leave fans of folk- and black metal disappointed! – In the interview below, the gentlemen talk about the current covid-19 situation, the new album “Cry of the Lost” and much more.

During a recent appearance on “The Dan Chan Show”Megadeth bassist David Ellefson offered an update on the progress of the recording sessions for the band’s follow-up to 2016’s “Dystopia” album. He said (hear audio below): “The new Megadeth album is almost done — rounding the corners into the ‘final final.’ It’s funny, ’cause we’d kind of been working on it for four years. Look, covid, of course, last year changed the course of everything, and Dave [MustaineMegadeth leader] went through throat cancer treatments the year before that, 2019. So, there have been some diversions. But at the same time, the record’s always been being worked on.”

He continued: “It’s funny — my view is that it’s probably kind of been in the works similar to ‘Dystopia’; we’re almost on the exact same timeline of when it’s gonna be finished, mixed [and] delivered. And, of course, as the world keeps attempting to open and then was shutting back down again, especially with live music, you always wanna try to release things around touring opportunities and promotional opportunities. So the fact that we’ve been able to work diligently on it and not sort of be boxed into a tour that would then get canceled or postponed, it’s actually been good. In hindsight, it’s all working out just fine.”

This past April Evanescence announced that their new album “The Bitter Truth” would be arriving later this year, after initially emerging via a series of singles. The band’s frontwoman Amy Lee recently told SiriusXM of where they are that with that:

“We’re still ongoing. We don’t have a release date, but I kind of like to look at it like it’s happening now. The idea behind this whole thing was always to go one at a time, release it at a little at a time, in real-time with fans, while it’s still going on and it’s still fresh and live in the moment more.

So, in my mind it is being released – this is part of it. We live in a new world where it’s not all about dropping a big pile of music all at once. People don’t always consume music that way… I don’t.

Stryper will release their new album, “Even The Devil Believes”, on September 4 via Frontiers Music. The 11-track project is Stryper‘s first studio album with Perry Richardson (Firehouse) on bass and background vocals.

Sweet, who also produced the new album, told “Fox 17 Rock And Review” about the effort (see video below): “This album, I kept saying, ‘It’s a metal album. It’s a metal album,’ and it is. It’s for sure a hundred percent metal album. But at the same time, we really wanted to incorporate more melodies and bring back a little bit more of the melodic side of the band as well as the edgy side of the band. So, these are metal songs, but with lots of melodies and vocal parts going on.”

Sweet went on to say that his next year is “pretty booked solid” despite the fact that live concerts are still mostly prohibited, with no end in sight.
