The new Russian power metal sensation is an unstoppable force with a mission to bring back Heavy Metal to the venues.
ESTATE was founded in Krasnodar, Russia in 2012 by a group of people with the same mission – a mission to play live and loud heavy metal in the vein of classic acts like Helloween, Scorpions, Van Halen, Whitesnake etc. It’s the guitar, the power, the riffs and especially the melody that makes these five Russians this unstoppable force of heavy metal.
The members of ESTATE, is truly a unit with same religious beliefs, traditions, customs, notions of honor, valor, heroism, freedom and love. All of this is reflected in their music, which is best described as melodic power metal with influences from traditional folk music, 80’s pop music and the glam of the 70’s.
The band is already a well-known live-act on the metal-scene in Russia and has shared stage with acts like Doro, Michael Schenker and Kipelov (ex-Aria).
In the spring of 2014 the band completed recording their debut album “Fantasia”. The album is produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by the band themselves at “Estate studio”.
The remarkable artwork is done by none other than Leo Hao, who is well known for working with bands like Blind Guardian, Rage, Iced Earth, Magic Kingdom and Aria.
“Fantasia” will be released on 1. December via Mighty Music / Target.
