The young, promising melodic metal band Within Silence are finally back with their highly anticipated second album “Return From The Shadows”!
The debut album “Gallery of Life” was released through the Swedish label Ulterium Records in 2015 and received very good feedback from around the world. Within Silence played many shows in Slovakia and around Europe since then including festivals in Norway, Germany, Slovakia and the Netherlands, as well as joining Theocracy [US] as special guests on their European tour in November 2016.
“Return From The Shadows” is a perfect follow-up to “Gallery of Life” and feels like a more mature and focused album. The impressive song-writing and melodies are still there, and together with heavy riffs, symphonic arrangements and epic parts the result is a really impressive album!
The album was mixed and mastered by Roland Grapow [Masterplan, ex. Helloween] and the artwork was created by Jan Yrlund [Delain, Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani].
Within Silence is a perfect band for fans of melodic metal in general and bands like Theocracy, Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica in particular. Don’t miss out on this young, promising band and the new album “Return From The Shadows”!

Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are proud to announce the signing of italian AORsters Mindfeels for the release of their debut album “XXenty”. Born with the name of Dejanira back in 1994, Mindfeels were originally the trio of Italo Graziana (Soul Seller – Drums), Roberto Barazzotto (Bass) and Luca Carlomagno (Guitars / Keyboards / Violin). From the beginning, Mindfeels showed their love of American AOR/Westcoast legends, Toto, and built a set list of Toto cover songs for live, instrumental performances. Later, Dejanira joined forces with female singer Raffaella Miani, who fronted the band for the recording of their first, unreleased album, which they self produced. A few years later, new frontman Davide Gilardino, replaced Raffaella on vocals. The band was completed with the addition of Gloria Strippolion backing vocals, and Christian Rossetti on keyboards. This new line-up (with the exception of Gloria Strippoli) began recording the second unreleased album “XXenty”, a title chosen in celebration of their more than two decades of music together. The new line-up prompted a new moniker – and Mindfeels was born. They chose the name to represent their infinite love of Toto, led by guitar maestro Steve Lukather, and in particular, their timeless album “Mindfields”. In 2017, Mindfeels signed with new label, Art Of Melody Music, for the European release of “XXenty”(scheduled for November 17th), and also with AnderStein Music for a dedicated Japanese release later in December. The cd version will feature liner notes written by Kenneth Bremer, editor in chief of renowned westcoast music website Blue Desert, while the first single, “Soul Has Gone Away”, will be launched with an official video in October.
COLDSPELL have released a music video for the song ‘Forevermore‘, the track is taken from the new album, ‘A New World Arise’, which is out NOW. For the fourth time the band from the land of ice and snow up in the north of Sweden is going to bring the world 12 songs that will melt a rocking heart. The band has captured emotions of a world going crazy and finding peace in the wilderness.
The album was recorded at various studios throughout Sweden and once again mixed by Tommy Hansen (Pretty Maids, Helloween, Jorn).
With three albums released so far the wait is over. Coldspell are ready to strike again with the brand new album titled “A New World Arise”. This is stunning recording that features 12 new songs of epic proportions and it’s going to put ColdSpell firmly on the map. This is Scandinavian melodic rock of the highest order and will be a strong contender for the hard rock album of 2017.
Perris Records is proud to announce the worldwide release of VAN ARX – Stand Together For Rock and Roll CD.
VAN ARX a unmistakable Hard Rock 80s style with everything you’d expect to see on stage during those wild and crazy times. Powerful original songs with a deliberate nod to icons like Kiss, Mötley Crüe, AC/DC and many more. With three lead vocalists, VAN ARX covers the entire spectrum of the genre and guarantees a diverse performance. VAN ARX also means a visual flashback into the 80s: four strong personalities carry the audience off into a time of glam rockers with long manes, platform boots and spandex. The musicians shed their identities and become Tyler String, Jake Fake, Brewster Kickass and Sticky Martin. Expect to be part of an exciting show with attitude, pyrotechnics, smoke and lights as the central elements of this collaborative work of art. 1984, the heyday of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal and the birth year of the Swiss band VAN ARX. After achieving considerable local success, the first chapter in the band’s history ended in the early 90s when the band members decided to pursue different musical avenues. But those formative years were never forgotten. 2014, a VAN ARX reunion. The joy was immense. A melding of musical maturity, old friendships and a passion for Hard Rock and Metal gave the band its direction. After a short warmup period, VAN ARX is set to relaunch in its original lineup with a solid live concept and a brand new album. For fans of KISS, Mötley Crüe, AC/DC and STEEL PANTHER.

Sneakout Records is proud to announce the signing of Poisonheart for the release of their debut album “Till The Morning Light”. Founded back in the second half of 2000 by mastermind Fabio Perini, Poisonheart started their career as live cover band, touring extensively in the north of Italy to build their reputation of classic glam/punk-rock band, with roots firmly planted in the sound of the golden years. Soon the punk elements were left behind to introduce a more mature and personal sound, influenced not only by classic glam/sleaze rock music, but also featuring new influences coming from dark ‘n’ roll territories. For this reason (and after a lot of line-up changes), the new “updated” version of Poisonheart finally took the decision of entering the doors of Atomic Stuff Studios under the artistical guidance of producer and sound engineer Oscar Burato, to record their long awaited debut album “Till The Morning Light”. After one year of hard work, “Till The Morning Light” is now finally completed, and ready to be released on October 27th, 2017 via Sneakout Records. The cover artwork has been released by newcomer photographer Michele Gusmeri, who showed his talent in capturing the perfect “light/shadow” dualism that represents the main concept behind the sound and lyrics of “Till The Morning Light”.
