FLAMES OF HEAVEN
In dark times, epic music is needed to get people in a positive mood again. On the surface, “The Force Within” belongs to the genre of Epic Symphonic Power Metal, yet there is more behind Cristiano Filippini’s Flames of Heaven than just trying to deliver a strong all-star album. This project brings together the most talented group of Italian metal musicians to deliver a creative powerhouse album. The ideas of composer, producer, and guitarist Cristiano Filippini have developed into a real spectacle, which will win over fans of the genre in no time.
Even though the genre is often called kitschy, “The Force Within” is anything but that. The production is superb, the compositions elaborated to the smallest detail. The melodies are catchy and the vocals with the expressive voice are brilliant. The guitar work is simply awesome. The album shows a band with great technical prowess and a versatility of switching between voluminous and razor sharp, delivering songs which take you on a great musical journey. It is interesting, by the way, that the orchestral parts are used very efficiently and at the same time discreetly, rounding off the pieces to perfection.
ROXXCALIBUR – ALBUM NO. 4 IN THE MAKING!
…THE RETURN OF “PERMANENT GARAGE DAYS” (and not just “revisited”)
Quote from the band:
“Yes, it seemed impossible some months back. Our last album “Gems Of The NWOBHM” was released in 2015. …
When we started, we had underground songs on our first album, like “Seven Days Of Splendour” from Jameson Raid or “Rainbow Warrior” from Bleak House. Many of these bands have been reissued on great labels like High Roller, No Remorse or Cult Metal Classics and some of those bands are active again. The once “unknown” NWOBHM songs from rare 7″ singles and albums are now bigger than ever (not just because of us!!). … We always wanted to surprise people with great songs that only a few people know (or remember). This still is our aim, so we have to dig way deeper than usual to make Roxxcalibur album number 4 as relevant as the three albums before. We are on a good way here, still chosing tracks right now! Here and there we might do some more changes to the songs than usual when the original is more AOR or punk…let’s see!
Beside that nothing has changed! Same line-up as on “Gems…” and the same label (Limb Music). No modern studio production but an authentic in-your-face sound. Same attitude, same fun!
There’s a lot of NWOBHM-people who we met and who are not with us anymore. This album will be dedicated to all of them, including Mr. Tsangarides who did our second album.”

MEMORIES OF OLD – The Zeramin Game
Epic Symphonic Power Metal is a style that has neither too many friends in the UK nor bands which tend to indulge in this more Scandinavian or Italian genre. Nevertheless, a certain Billy Jeffs has discovered a passion for this genre and starts working on an album in 2017. Three years later, with his new band MEMORIES OF OLD, he presents an album that impressively reflects the entire spectrum of this genre. “The Zeramin Game” is not just a simple debut – it is an epitome of the genre. What started as a one-man-project has even aroused the interest of Sabaton/Majestica guitarist Tommy Johansson, who quickly declared himself a member of MEMORIES OF OLD. “The Zeramin Game” delivers a firework of songs that fans of Epic Symphonic Power Metal will embrace enthusiastically! The compositions are crisply produced, up to date, and simply monumental.
