Lizzy Borden has spent nearly 25 years creating some of the most theatrical metal in existence and in the process has become nothing short of a metal icon. Releasing classics such as Love You to Pieces (1985) and Master of Disguise (1989) and obliterating audiences worldwide with a stage show that rivals that of Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper.
One of the UK’s most distinctive metal bands, SAVAGE MESSIAH, has joined the Century Media family in 2017 and presents its fourth album, “Hands Of Fate”, which offers a timeless heavy metal sound that is blessed with incredible song-writing and avalanches of impressive lead guitars and powerful riffs. Notably influenced by Megadeth and Metallica yet showing a hard rock vibe in terms of catchiness, produced by regular collaborator Scott Atkins (Amon Amarth, Cradle Of Filth) and mastered by Dave Collins (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper), “Hands Of Fate” develops further from the band’s thrash metal beginnings towards an honest, unpretentious, and utterly enthralling sound. Take a listen to the title track, “Eat Your Heart Out”, “Blood Red Road” or the excellent semi-ballad “Last Confession”, and you will realize that SAVAGE MESSIAH’s 2017 record offers masterful metal-hymns that bear the potential to delight you for ages.
Formed in 1997 and inspired by 90’s American metal greats such as Pantera, Machine Head and Fear Factory, DAGOBA quickly expanded their furious sound with dark, symphonic and industrial elements culminating on what is to become their strongest album to date, “Black Nova”. Shawter – singer, guitarist, composer and leader of DAGOBA – helmed the recordings of “Black Nova”, which took place at Eagle Black, his own studio in Marseille, whereas Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica, Heaven Shall Burn) took care of mix and mastering. “Black Nova” sounds massive with rich dynamics, towering riffs, vigorous shouts and infectious melodic choruses all over the place. The equally powerful artwork was created by Seth Siro Anton (Septic Flesh / covers for Moonspell, Paradise Lost, Exodus). From the first single “Inner Sun” with its powerful electronic hook to the driving and gloomy modern thrash of “The Legacy Of Ares”, from the crushing yet majestic “The Infinite Chase” over to the emotional impact of “Stone Ocean”, “Black Nova” impresses with diversity and excellent songcraft. A highly recommended piece of epic modern metal. The CD Book includes two bonus tracks!
To commemorate their first two decades of existence, My Dying Bride re-worked melodies and themes from their extensive back catalogue into epic, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating new vocals and passages from Aaron Stainthorpe and French Opera singer Lucie Roche.

The resulting album/triple cd set, Evinta, is presented in a deluxe twelve inch 64 page book with spot varnished cover.
MDB's unique brand of mystery and misery has never looked or sounded as good.

Anneke van Giersbergen, forever known as the former vocalist for melancholic metallers The Gathering and for her collaborations with the Devin Townsend Project and Arjen Lucassen (i.e. The Gentle Storm), formed VUUR in 2016, a new progressive metal band featuring renowned drummer Ed Warby (Gorefest, Ayreon) and some of the best heavy metal players in The Netherlands! The name VUUR – translated from Dutch as “fire”, which can also be interpreted to mean “passion” or “drive” – was chosen as a moniker to represent Anneke's metal side, with the idea that when fans buy a ticket with the VUUR name on it they will be getting her heavy progressive music, while an Anneke van Giersbergen show will be entirely different. “It's like I'm searching for contradictions,” Anneke says of splitting her focus in two. “I want the heavy to be really heavy, and the soft acoustic stuff that I can do can be almost silent and inward. I'm trying to find those outer limits. I'm still writing and collaborating with different people, so VUUR's style is still kind of different from The Gathering and The Gentle Storm. VUUR's music has the melancholy of The Gathering and certain elements from The Gentle Storm, but it's darker with fewer folk elements. It's still melodic and warm, but heavy.” Thus, “In This Moment We Are Free – Cities” features crushing riffs and impressive rhythm patterns whereas Anneke sends shivers down your spine with a truly intense vocal lines. So, make sure to check out Anneke’s ultimate heavy outlet.
