Rockshots Records is proud to announce their latest signing of Greece’s Black Fatefor the release of the prog power metal band’s new album “Ithaca” due out October 23rd, 2020.

With their heartbreaking world-class vocals, catchy hooks and lyrics, along with crashing guitar riffs, haunting melodies, and furious technical and melodic solos, Black Fate continues to satisfy bands with the release of their 5th studio album.

The band comments on the release of “Ithaca”:

‘Ithaca’ is melodic, technical, and groovy, but also a bit dark. It has beautiful and strange melodies with powerful emotions. We believe it’s an album for all kinds of metal audiences. We hope the fans will see it the same way. We see ‘’Ithaca’’ as a very integrated album. Fans who have followed us over the years will also notice many changes in the songwriting process; we concentrated to find the best form and the best overall result for every song.”

black_fate_dos_14cGreek melodic metal band Black Fate have remixed and remastered their 2009 album Deliverance of Soul, which was the first album with current vocalist Vasilis Georgiou.

Black Fate’s origins go all the way back to 1990 in Larissa, Greece where the original lineup released a couple of demos and started playing shows where they built a following.  After a couple of lineup changes and albums, drummer Nikos Tsintzilonis met now current vocalist Vasilis Georgious and the band shifted direction turning to melodic power metal and resulting in the album Deliverance of Soul in 2009. A few more lineup changes later led to Black Fate releasing Between Visons & Lies in 2014 to critical acclaim.  Now in 2016, the band has reissued Deliverance of Soul, which was remastered by Erik Tordsson (End Of September) and features new artwork by Jan Yrlund (Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani, Leah).“Deliverance of Soul” track listing

If one didn’t know better, the intro track “Children of Aniramas” sounds a bit like this could be an EDM or techno album, so that was a bit of a surprise to hear as my other exposure to Black Fate was 2014’s Between Visions & Lies.  Thankfully, “Dying Freedom” reverts to melodic power metal.  Continue reading »
