MINOTAURUS – Victims Of The Underworld

“Victims Of The Underworld”, again recorded in collaboration with producer Rolf Munkes, is being released in the band’s 25th anniversary year. With more metal, but with lasting lyrical content, the album is a work of maturity and depth. From “Thor I’m Asking You” which, from the first note, carries the listener along with its hard guitars and profound melody, to the doom-inspired “Raven’s Fate” the songs seem to have been cast from a single multifaceted mold. Every note displays the conviction and energy that the band applied while recording their sixth album. MINOTAURUS have delivered a monumental work even by their own standards, and one which will surely generate new fans of this genre.



Total playing time 45:50



  • Mature, dynamic, tougher: that is the MINOTAURUS 2019 sound!
  • Produced by Rolf Munkes (Empire, Crematory, ex-Majesty, Tour guitarist for Tony Martin etc…) in Empire Studios.
  • Multifaceted, intensive Folk Metal.
  • High-quality back catalog with excellent reviews.

André Matos passed away

Our hearts are broken and we had to come to terms with the news before posting anything: André Matos (ex VIPER, ex ANGRA, SHAMAN) passed away on June 8th at the age of 47 after suffering a heart attack.

Andre Matos (Official) posted:
„It is with deep regret that we confirmed André’s death this Saturday morning due to cardiac arrest. As many people know, he was an extremely reserved person – and he manifested in his life, more than once, the desire not to have a wake. Respecting his will, he will be cremated today (June 9th) with the presence of only his relatives. Thank you all for understanding and we count on you so that André’s memory and legacy will remain alive forever. Carry on.“

I worked with André for many years when I managed ANGRA back in the 90’s. André was a very happy, friendly and courteous person. It was a real pleasure and a lot of fun to work with him, he was a very talented singer, songwriter and pianist. The last time I met André was 2006 at Wacken, he was in perfect shape and very excited about his new project. Last year I was told that André was not in good condition. And a few days ago he played a good show with the reunited SHAMAN as support for Avantasia and also performed one song with Avantasia on stage. So I thought, wow he is back and it seems he feels better now. So I was even more shocked about the bad news.

My deepest condolences go to his family, bandmates and close friends. Rest In Peace my friend, I will miss you and never forget the good times we luckily could share. Like, for example, the gold disc award for 100.000 sold copies of the album “Angels Cry” in Japan pictured here.
