New Releases - May 2012

May 2012 is another exciting month for femet releases in the UK.  Here are four I have come across so far:

Dawn of Destiny - Praying To The World
Vocals - Jeanette Scherff

Jeanette joined Dawn of Destiny in 2010, replacing founding member Tanja Maul on vocals.  Dawn of Destiny are a German power metal band and were formed in 2005.  Praying To The World is their fourth studio album release and the first to feature Jeanette on vocals.

Diablo Swing Orchestra - Pandora's Pinata
Vocals - Annlouice Loegdlund

Diablo Swing Orchestra are a Swedish Avant-Garde metal band who were formed in 2003 and who come complete with a tongue in cheek back story.  Pandora's Pinata is their third album release and the first single from that album, Voodoo Mon Amour was released earlier in 2012.  This is of the same kind of awesomeness as Van Canto.  An utterly brilliant twist on traditional metal music and a really exciting find.

The Murder of My Sweet - Bye Bye Lullaby
Vocals - Angelica Rylin

The Murder of My Sweet are a Swedish symphonic metal band formed in 2006.  Bye Bye Lullaby is their third album.  Follow The Rain is taken from their 2010 album Divanity and has made me really keen to hear their new material which they claim to have taken down a darker path.

So there is May - have you heard about or are you looking forward to any other femet releases in May?  Get in touch and let me know so I can check them out!  I am personally looking forward to the releases expected in June 2012 - Delain's release date was finally announced for June along with The Agonists new album!!  Awesome.
