FireWölfe releases new single & video!

FireWölfe is excited to release their 2nd single and video entitled “Pedal To Metal” from their upcoming album “Conquer All Fear” (out on Nov. 19th).

Singer Freddy Krumins describes “Pedal To Metal” as an “adrenaline charged, attitude filled romp that needs no further explanation. Just plenty of volume and visualization of the open road.”

Musically the aggressive guitar riffing brings to mind uptempo good time Rock’n’Roll like classic Van Halen, while the vocals, bass and drums are full throttle throughout. The only slight break in the action is after the ripping guitar solos during a half time manic breakdown that sounds like Freddy K. is losing his mind!

Indeed, “Pedal To Metal” has a simple message of putting your foot on the gas and getting where you want to go in life—so start your engines and get ready for a wild ride!

As the lyric says “never low on fuel, that’s the only rule!”

FIREWÖLFE – Conquer All Fear

In 2020 founding member/guitarist Nick Layton and bassist Bobby Ferkovich (Pamela Moore Band, Metal Church, Heir Apparent, Presto Ballet) sought to put a new powerful version of FIREWÖLFE together after singer David Fefolt left the band. By recruiting Seattle based guitar shredder Michael David (TKO), virtuoso drummer Marco Bicca (Pamela Moore Band, The Element, A Dying Planet) and Las Vegas based vocalist Freddy Krumins (James Byrd’s Atlantis Rising), the band was finally set.

“Conquer All Fear” is a powerful, mighty heavy metal album with a high melodic density. Produced and mastered by Bart Gabriel (Crystal Viper, Jack Starr, Hexx among others) and mixed by Cederick Forsberg (Crystal Viper, Marta Gabriel, Rocka Rollas, Blazon Stone among others), the album comes across as a tour de force of US Metal. Heavy riffs, melodic choruses, a thundering rhythm unit, excellent double guitar attacks and finely structured solos characterize the tracks. With Freddy Krumins’ voice, the new tracks seem elegantly rougher and take the new material to a new level. The core piece of the album is the “The Evil Eye Trilogy”. Versatility and heaviness go hand in hand. An album that blasts out of the speakers straight into your brain!

Cover artwork by Dusan Markovic (Dragony, Symphonity, Jag Panzer, Death Dealer).

WONDERS – The Fragments Of Wonder

“The Fragments Of Wonder” moves in the musical sphere between Stratovarius and Beast In Black, spiced with a progressive touch. The production is powerful and guitar-heavy – an important feat because apart from catchy melodies and choruses, the guitar work is one of the outstanding trademarks and makes this album a real gem of the genre.

In 2020, the two EVEN FLOW musicians Pietro Paolo Lunesu and his brother Giorgio Lunesu (both from Sardinia) started a new cooperation with the Greek producer and keyboardist Bob Katsionis (ex Firewind).
After the trio had defined their musical goals, it was clear that more comrades would have to come on board the new band. What could be more obvious than to involve good friends like singer Marco Pastorino and bassist Luca Negro, both from TEMPERANCE.

Katsionis produced and mixed the album in his Sound Symmetry Studio in Athens. All musicians traveled from Sardinia to Greece especially for this purpose. “The Fragments Of Wonder” tends musically into the Power Melodic Metal corner without leaving out style-defining progressive elements – a bit comparable to early Stratovarius.

SANDSTONE – Epsilon Sky

SANDSTONE is one of Ireland’s most persistent and most prolific metal bands and also played as the tour backing band of ex-Judas Priest fronter Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens. They are now back with their fifth studio album “Epsilon Sky”. Darker, heavier, more sophisticated and detached from all current trends, they present an album that is completely oriented towards the preferences of the musicians involved.

The band, founded in 2003 by guitarist Stevie McLaughlin and singer Sean McBay, can look back on four weighty albums so far, with their second album “Purging The Past” from 2009 even sparking the interest of Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson and he considered this with the statement, “this is the most impressive album to come from Ireland in many years”.

The band describes “Epsilon Sky” as an album for fans of deep, thoughtful songs in a compact‚ all killers no fillers‘ package, with the supporting elements of Metal, Hard Rock, and progressive tendencies unite perfectly.

“Epsilon Sky” is a firework of strong songs that can’t really be assigned to one genre, thus appealing to different target groups.
