Symphonic Metal Band Silent Saga recently released ‘New Horizons’ a brand new song. which appears on their upcoming EP. It has a strong dynamic and powerful lyrics with a catchy chorus.

Sabrina Todt will tell you what was in her mind when she wrote it.

“The main topic came from some Sci Fi movie that I saw (probably), which may sound a little weird, but what’s important is what is behind of it… as always right?! So here it is, check it out what my crazy mind was thinking when I wrote that:

“When I wrote this lyric my Sci Fi mode was on…

“The main character wakes in a pod in outer space and all he can think about is that he is an unfortunate man that will miss all the things he had done in life while he was on earth, because every little thing that he does in this pod must be very precise or he can die. Therefore, recklessness is not more a word in his dictionary, if you know what I mean. Continue reading »

Sweet & Lynch, featuring Stryper vocalist Michael Sweet and Lynch Mob/Dokken guitarist George Lynch, will release their sophomore album, “Unified,” on November 10th. The brand new song ‘Bridge Of Broken Lies’ is available for streaming below.

Sweet & Lynch is centred around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet of veteran hardrock band Stryper (ex-Boston) and iconic guitarist George Lynch (Lynch Mob, KXM, ex-Dokken) along with bassist James Lomenzo (ex-Megadeth, White Lion, Black Label Society) and drummer Brian Tichy (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake).

“Melancholy Beast”, the classic debut album from Pyramaze will be re-issued on CD/digital on November 24th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings. The album was originally released in 2004.

The re-issue includes an extended 20 page booklet that features track commentary and album history written by Pyramaze guitarist and founder Michael Kammeyer. The re-issue also includes the bonus track ‘The Wizard’ that was originally only included on the Japanese edition of the album.

Michael Kammeyer comments: “Dear fans of Pyramaze and all things metal! It’s time for the old to become the new! Our highly praised debut album Melancholy Beast is up for a re-release. Originally released back in 2004, the album has had a good run, but has become increasingly hard to obtain in the stores over the last years, due to obsolete record contracts and label changes. While the new Pyramaze stuff continues to gather new fans around the world, the old album(s) have also become highly coveted by the growing Pyramaze fanbase. Therefore it is with great pride and joy that I can announce the signing for a re-release with Inner Wound Recordings. The album has been updated with track commentary, album history and new band photos inside the booklet. Also for the first time outside of Japan with the bonus track ‘The Wizard’. Continue reading »
