DRAGONY announce “Shadowplay” guest appearance by Zak Stevens!
Quote: “As on our first album, we are once again thrilled to welcome a very special guest on our upcoming record, and this time it is none other than former SAVATAGE and TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA vocalist and current singer for CIRCLE II CIRCLE, Zak Stevens!
One of the most prolific and charismatic singers in the history of Metal, he has lent his voice to immortal classics such as “Edge Of Thorns”, “Handful Of Rain” and “Dead Winter Dead”, has just rocked the WACKEN OPEN AIR as part of a historical two stage performance with SAVATAGE and the TSO, and we are very honored to have Zak on board for our upcoming album “Shadowplay” (out in fall 2015), where he will contribute guest vocals to the song “The Silent Sun”.”

DRAGONY unveil collaboration with Lukas Knoebl of ILLUMINATA
Today, we’d like to continue giving you some details on our upcoming new album “Shadowplay” which will be released on 18th September 2015, and it is with great pleasure that we can announce a collaboration with Lukas Knoebl, guitarist and mastermind of Austrian Symphonic Metallers ILLUMINATA!
Lukas is not only a great guitarist and songwriter, but he is also a highly talented arranger of orchestral music, and when we were looking to take the “symphonic” aspect of our new songs to the next level, we got in contact with Lukas when we heard his amazing work on ILLUMINATA’s new album “Where Stories Unfold”. We are very happy to have him on board, as he provided some excellent orchestral arrangements for our new songs!

HEAVENS GATE – Best For Sale!
From their first days in 1987 until their break in 1999, HEAVENS GATE were among the top representatives of German Heavy Metal. They had a large fan community, especially in Japan, and their albums are in high demand until today… Which justifies some special release, of course – ‘Best For Sale!’ is a perfect choice for the newbie and the stalwart longtime fan. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and recap the development of the band.
16 years after one of the best German Heavy Metal bands was heard of last, ‘Best For Sale!’ offers a great compendium of the quintet’s creative years. No doubt they have left their mark, and their albums are still in high demand. HEAVENS GATE were an integral part of the German Heavy Metal scene, and ‘Best For Sale!’ epitomises their unique sound: be it fast smashers or classic ballads – the boys deliver them with their impressive and distinctive style. Enjoy ‘Best For Sale!’ either as an introduction to the HEAVENS GATE catalogue or as a great essential legacy.
