DRAGONY release “Flame Of Tar Valon” lyrics video

Ladies and gentlemen, we are happy to present the first single from the upcoming new album MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE!

Check out the lyrics video on YouTube – the song will be available on platforms such as iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and Deezer shortly as well.

MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE will be out on October 12th.

DRAGONY presents “If It Bleeds We Can Kill It” video clip premiere on DEAF FOREVER website

DRAGONY are proud to present the official video to “If It Bleeds We Can Kill It” from their upcoming third album “Masters Of The Multiverse”! This track is obviously inspired by the 1987 cult classic movie “Predator” featuring their fellow countryman, the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the band – of course – had to put a bit of their own touch to the source material, so the “Predator” now meets “Hot Shots”. Watch the video at the DEAF FOREVER PAGE.

“Masters Of The Multiverse” will be out on October 12th!

The 10 Years Royal Collection

Australia’s high decibel Metal scene is subject to certain rules. Because of the immense distance many of the hundreds of promising newcomers on the Australian scene never make it across the pond. The few combos who do manage to make the trip to Europe are a huge enhancement for the European scene. BLACK MAJESTY is one such band! Superb Power Metal with lots of melodies, finely spun prog elements and a huge portion of sheer joy and unbroken enthusiasm are the chief characteristics of Black Majesty. The Best Of contains songs of the first five albums, as well as rare Japan bonus tracks, acoustic versions and previously unreleased songs and demos with the whopping number of 31 remastered tracks on two CD’s.

The Irish guitarist Stevie McLaughlin, better known for his riff attacks with the Irish metal band Sandstone and as touring guitarrist for the former Judas Priest/ex-Iced Earth singer Tim Ripper Owens, has recorded his first solo effort. ‘Toy Empires’ is the title of the ten track opus, which can be described as being between hard rock and classical heavy metal. Progressive influences are just as recognizable as are influences to his style by guitarists such as Gary Moore, Rory Gallagher, Steve Vai, John Petrucci and Pat McManus. ‘Toy Empires’ is pleasing the listener with its ten cleanly arranged, melodic hardrock/metal songs, and further recommending itself with its strong, great melodies and classical guitar parts.
