Pyramaze fans can rejoice as the band has re-released their hard to find 2004 album Melancholy Beast in an enhanced package with notes from ex-guitarist Michael Kammeyer and a bonus track previously found only on the Japanese release.

Pyramaze was formed by Michael Kammeyer back in 2002 and released their debut album Melancholy Beast in 2004 followed by Legend of the Bone Carver in 2006. Not long after the band underwent some changes as original vocalist Lance King was replaced by Matt Barlow (Iced Earth, Ashes to Ares) for their 2008 album Immortal.  After Immortal, Matt returned to Iced Earth, Kammeyer retired, and bassist Niels Kvist also departed, leaving Jonah, Toke, and Morten who convinced longtime producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe) to join on guitars.  Singer Terje Harøy joined in 2013 and the band released Disciples of the Sun in 2015 to critical acclaim and then began work on the concept album Contingent which was released in April 2017.

Angel Nation (formerly EnkeliNation) is back with their second album of hard, symphonic, power metal showcasing the talents of vocalist Elina Siirala (now also in Leaves Eyes).

Angel Nation was formed in 2011 in London by classically-trained Finnish opera vocalist Elina Siirala under the name EnkeliNation (Finnish for Angel Nation).  The story of the band goes back a bit farther when Elina moved to London, UK for vocal studies and fell in love with rock and metal.  In 2011, when her studies ended, she formed the band originally joined by guitarist Shadow (Empyreal Destroyer, Stand Aside) and the first years of the band were spent playing shows around London and enduring lineup changes.  A three song ep was released in late 2012 and in 2014 a video for the song “Tears of Lust” was released which gained the band a following.  Later that year the Tears of Lust album was  released with a headline show at the Underworld in London followed by a slot at the Bloodstock festival and subsequent UK tour.  In 2015, the band played some shows with Leaves Eyes and wrote/recorded Aeon and during this time the band decided to shift the name to the English translation of the band’s name due to ongoing confusion with the Finnish.  Those familiar with Leaves Eyes will undoubtedly recognize Elina as the new vocalist for that band as well and they have a new album slated for release in January 2018.
