DIVINER is a heavy/power metal band from Greece founded by long-time friends and music partners Yiannis Papanikolaou (vocals) and Thimios Krikos (guitar) in the summer of 2011. The two of them also formed the well known Greek heavy/power metallers InnerWish back in 1995 playing in their debut album “Waiting for the Dawn” (1998) but after this release they had a long break of different musical quests.
Their new vision was to proudly express themselves by creating and playing something powerful, intense, deep, heavy, dark, melodic and inspired that at the same time would sound up to date. All this without losing the elements that reflect the essence of pure and timeless magic of metal music.
They were joined in the band by George Maroulees (guitar), Herc Booze (bass) and Fragiskos Samoilis (drums) and a deal was inked with the Swedish label Ulterium Records.
The debut album “Fallen Empires” was released in November 2015 and received very good reviews and feedback from around the world. After the release of the album the band played many shows and big festivals in Greece and also in Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland, and became known for being a great and energetic live band gaining a strong following.
Thimios Krikos left the band in 2017 due to a heavy and conflicting schedule and was replaced by Kostas Fitos.
Diviner entered Devasoundz Studios in Athens with producer Fotis Benardo in summer 2018 to record their second album “Realms of Time”. This time they decided to expand their music horizons, exploring more territories, adding new elements in terms of lyrics, melodies, riffs and atmosphere, making their songwriting more interesting and better. The band worked really hard on coming up with the best compositions, arrangements and production as possible for the ten songs they set out to record.
The final result show improvements on every level since the band’s debut album and “Realms of Time” won’t leave fans of heavy and power metal disappointed. The album is heavy, melodic and epic and it’s full of energy, power and emotion. Follow Diviner into the Realms of Time!

Swedish heavy metal band LION’S SHARE is making a new five track EP available on streaming services and digital service providers today, September 28.
“EP” is the follow-up to 2009’s “Dark Hours” album and includes a re-recording of the LION’S SHARE classic “Sins Of A Father” – the opening track on the band’s self- titled debut from 1995.
“It was a blast to revisit the song together with Andy Loos (bass) and Kay Backlund (keyboards) who also did the original version with me back in the day. Sure brought back a lot of good and crazy memories.” LION’S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says.
The EP also features “Another Desire” and “The Lion’s Trial”, both previously only available as lyric videos.
LION’S SHARE lead singer Nils Patrik Johansson says: “Lars and I have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed. We of course have Andy and Kay, but also my son Nils Fredrik Johansson helping out on drums. Actually it’s more or less the same team that did my solo album “Evil Deluxe” earlier this year when I think about it.”
“As a special bonus we included two Black Sabbath covers, live from the “Sweden Rock – Ronnie James Dio Tribute” in October 2010, where LION’S SHARE was the house band if you will with various guests coming up to do a song or two with us. It’s taken directly from the eight channel drum monitor mixer, so it’s 100% live without any chance to repair or edit. We think it captures the raw energy of the band in front of an absolutely brilliant crowd that night.” adds Lars.
LION’S SHARE “EP” tracklist:
1. Another Desire
2. The Lion’s Trial
3. Sins Of A Father (2018 re-recording)
4. The Mob Rules (Live from the Sweden Rock – Ronnie James Dio Tribute 2010)
5. Heaven And Hell (Live from the Sweden Rock – Ronnie James Dio Tribute 2010)

POWERWOLF – Germany’s most successful band have just released the official music video for their new very first song “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend”. The song is taken from the new album The Sacrament Of Sin which will be released worldwide on July 20th 2018 via Napalm Records.
“Till The End” is called the second single out from the new album of Millennial Reign. The album called “The Great Divide” will be released on May 25th.
The US power metal band Millennial Reign are back with their new album “The Great Divide”! The album features new members Travis Wills [vocals], Steve Nichols [drums] and Neil Bertrand [bass] together with founding member Dave Harvey [guitars].”The Great Divide” is the follow-up to “Carry The Fire”, the label debut for the Swedish label Ulterium Records. Since the release of “Carry The Fire” the band toured with Stryper on their “To Hell With The Devil 30th anniversary tour” as well as supported bands like Sonata Arctica, Leaves’ Eyes, Theocracy, Omnium Gatherum, Hammerfall and Joe Lynn Turner.
“The Great Divide” feels like a more focused and powerful album than its precursor and the new vocalist Travis Wills [Infidel Rising] really shines through the album with his raw and emotional vocals. Fast, catchy songs like “Break The Tide” and “Imagine” are mixed with epic songs like “Till The End” and “Wounds In Hand” and together they form a great collection of songs that should appeal to fans of US power metal and melodic metal.

TREMONTI – TO RELEASE A DYING MACHINE WORLDWIDE VIA NAPALM RECORDS ON JUNE 8th
Tremonti, the band comprised of Mark Tremonti on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, and Garrett Whitlock on drums, will be releasing their fourth full-length album, A Dying Machine, worldwide via Napalm Records on June 8th. Longtime producer, Michael “Elvis” Baskette, produced the album. The album is currently available for pre-order at: http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine-NPR
From the militant drum assault of the album opener “Bringer Of War” to the instrumental closer “Found,” A Dying Machine is Tremonti’s most-diverse musical offering to date. Songs like “From The Sky,” “Throw Them To The Lions” and “A Lot Like Sin” are signature Tremonti that fans have come to love from the trio. Songs like “Trust,” “The First The Last” and “Desolation” take the listener to new places sonically, all backed by Tremonti’s signature vocal style. A teaser video with music from the album can be seen at: https://youtu.be/LbJNULY8R0w
A Dying Machine is the first concept album of Tremonti’s career and the music is inspired by a story that came to Mark while on the last Alter Bridge tour. During that time, the epic title track “A Dying Machine” was born. The story, which is being turned into a full-length work of fiction authored by Mark Tremonti and John Shirley, takes place at the turn of the next century where humans and fabricated beings called “vessels” are trying to co-exist. Tremonti and Shirley are working on finishing the novel to release alongside the record.
The track listing for A Dying Machine is:
1) Bringer Of War
2) From The Sky
3) A Dying Machine
5) Throw Them To The Lions
6) Make It Hurt
8) The First The Last
9) A Lot Like Sin
10) The Day When Legions Burned
11) As The Silence Becomes Me
12) Take You With Me
Tremonti will be hitting the road in support of A Dying Machine. The band will be playing a record release show in Orlando on May 12th at the Social. They are also confirmed for Carolina Rebellion on May 4th, the Lunatic Luau on May 5th and will be playing a headline shows in Savannah on May 2nd and Atlanta on May 7th. The band heads over to Europe in mid-June for seven weeks of touring that includes dates as direct support for Iron Maiden alongside headline shows and European festival appearances. Full tour information and ticket purchase links can be found at http://www.marktremonti.com.
After two decades at the forefront of all things guitar, a GRAMMY® Award win, 40 million-plus units sold between Alter Bridge, Creed, and his eponymous Tremonti, and countless other accolades, Mark Tremonti once again summited an uncharted creative peak in 2018. For the very first time, the guitarist and singer crafted an immersive concept and accompanying novel for Tremonti’s fourth full-length album and first for Napalm Records, A Dying Machine. Since emerging in 2012, he and his bandmates—Eric Friedman [guitar, bass] and Garrett Whitlock [drums]—have built the foundation for such an ambitious statement. Their full-length debut All I Was bowed in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart and Top 30 of the Top 200. The 2015 follow-up Cauterize hit the #1 spot on the Top Rock Albums chart on iTunes when it was released. 2015 saw the frontman take home “Best Guitarist” at the Loudwire Music Awards just a year removed from his 2014 “Riff Lord” win at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods. In between sold out headline gigs and festival appearances everywhere from Rock on the Range to Shiprocked!, 2016’s Dust maintained that momentum. With A Dying Machine, Tremonti reaches new heights like never before.

Michael Schinkel (singer and guitarist) and Helmut Kohlpaintner (keyboard player, bassist) decided to work as composers and producers for other musicians and bands and founded the company “enooma-media musicproduction” in Munich. Again and again they received calls, letters and e-mails from fans, with the request to produce a new Eternal Flamealbum. It then started in 2012.

The album was created by further guests such as Mark Boals(ex-Yngwie Malmsteen and Ring of Fire) and Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen & John Norum).

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”!

Martin Klein – Lead vocals, backing vocals
