New Releases - April 2012

April sees a new collection of awesome femetal releases in the UK.

Eths - III 
Vocals - Candice Clot

Eths are a metalcore band from Marseille who formed in 1999.  They have developed a unique mix of styles to include nu, death, alternative and deathcore.  III is their fourth album release and their second with Season of Mist.   

Ignitor - Year of the Metal Tiger
Guitar - Beverly Barrington

Ignitor are a heavy metal band from Texas who were formed in 2003.  Their sound is a mixture of 80's thrash and heavy metal with a hint of new wave and this album is the bands fourth release.  Take a sneaky listen to 3 tracks from the new album:

Halestorm - The Strange Case Of ...
Vocals, Rhythm Guitar - Lizzy Hale

Halestorm are an American rock band from Pennsylvania.  They formed in 1998 and The Strange Case of ... is their second album.  This video showcases Love Bites (So Do I) which is taken from the new album.

Lullacry - Where Angels Fear 
Vocals - Tanja Lainio

Lullacry are a melodic gothic metal band from Finland.  Formed in 1998, Where Angels Fear is the bands fifth album release.  With a 7 year wait for this album - will it have been worth waiting for?  If this video for Bad Blood is anything to go by I should say it has been! 

Winter in Eden - Echos of Betrayal
Vocals - Vicky Johnson

Winter in Eden are a symphonic rock band from the UK.  With an ethos 'To produce and perform the music we feel compelled to create' they are a difficult band to pigeon hole into one genre.  As luck would have it, they are playing in a few weeks in Rotherham supporting DeeExpus through the Classic Rock Society.  I think a little trip out to see them might just be in order.  This video is a live performance of the track Suffer in Silence which appears on the new album.
