“We Came With The Flood” – To be released 22 of June 2018
The band released their debut-album „Global Ignition“ in October 2014 and has received outstanding reviews from various rock/metal magazines, including giants in the genre like Metal Hammer, Rock Hard and Legacy.
After its release, Edge Of Ever has played various concerts in Germany and abroad and in november 2017 the band finished the production of their newest double album „We Came With The Flood“. An album which is set to be released on Mighty Music 22nd of June!
The album ‘These Hollow Gods’ is written for all those that live with loss, regret and new beginnings every day. It is reflected in every aspect of our lives, through ego, obsession and self preservation. Every element of the album, from mix, production, photography to artwork, has been created by the band, without compromise. These songs are the result of years of blood, sweat, tears and broken strings.
The title track is about our role models, idols and those that we ultimately view as gods in family, religion, music and celebrity. Those that we worship and devote our lives to, but then reveal themselves to be nothing more than false hope, disappointment and betrayal. The consequences of putting so much faith in to one person or idealism and how it can blind our judgement of what’s wrong and right. This song is about realising the cost and coping with that moment of clarity. Everyone has a ‘hollow god’.

Born out of a passion to create dark and heavy rock music, Chasing Ghosts was formed by Lee Brueton. Influenced by bands such as Paradise Lost, Anathema, Moonspell and driven by a desire to give the UK rock scene some much needed fresh blood. In contrast to most bands within this genre, ‘Chasing Ghosts’ have carved their own unique sound, with clean vocals and emotive lyrics that are there to be heard and not hidden, compliment and not dominate. Their songs evoke emotions of fear, sadness, loss and regret, entwined within each doom laden guitar riff. Now signed to ‘Mighty Music,’ Denmark’s largest premier rock/metal label, with their album release due out early February 2018.
Recorded by ‘Enter Shikari’ engineer Tim Morris and aired on over 50 radio stations worldwide, the track ‘Fallen From Grace’ became the band’s first official video. The video featured Pixie Le Knot, actress and contortionist from ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Devil Inside’ . It debuted on ‘Amp’d TV’, hosted by Kerrang’s very own Johnny Doom.
The band are Nelson Cancini (Vocals), Lee Brueton (Bass/Synth), Ashley Clark (Rhythm purpose to produce honest and unrelenting rock music. Winners of Ubeat ‘Rock Act of the Year’ 2016, one of the UKs most celebrated emerging music awards.
Chasing Ghosts have played prestigious venues such as the Camden Assembly, Proud Camden, The Craufurd Arms, Bedford Esquires, Hope and Anchor and headlined the O2 Academy 2 Liverpool. A European tour is planned for early 2018 to coincide with their album launch in Copenhagen and festival dates to be announced soon.
“Mirrorland” is the second full-length album of Estate. It is powerful, attractive, mystical epic progressive power metal.
This album is a huge step up for the band. It is heavier and more progressive, but by no means Estate has lost their calling card – the lyrical and romantic melodism.
“Mirrorland”s very diverse but the songs keep the same vibe and are filled with obscure and mysterious atmosphere.
The album has such strong tunes as “Mirrorland”, “Lady Wind”, “The Ghoul” and a dark medium tempo horror story “Springtime”, plus traditional power metal ballads like “Winter Kingdom” and “Silvery Skies”. There is a special three-act opus that is called “Storm of the Age”. It was written under the influence of works of an American writer, Glen Cook, a founder of the dark fantasy genre.
The recordings began in August 2015 and lasted till May 2017 at the band’s own studio. Mixing and mastering is done by band’s guitarist Peter Filevsky.
Guest musicians include Mats Leven (Therion, Treat, and Candlemass) and Mark Boals (Y.Malmsteen, Royal Hunt, and Ring of Fire)
ESTATE is a Russian metal band with English lyrics performing in the genre of epic power metal with other influences.
The first album “Fantasia” was released in December 2014 with the help of Danish Label “Mighty Music/Target Group”.
“Fantasia” received positive feedback in many popular media sources around the world.
The songs “Hero”, “You Are Not Alone” and “Absolutely True!” played on many free radio stations on the globe and «Tarantella» with «Holy Land» were featured in numerous music collections.
In the beginning of 2015 ESTATE presented their new album in their home city, Krasnodar. The show was fantastic and epic and the local Rock Bar held the crowd of 400 people. After that the band performed with DORO (ex-WARLOCK), Michael Schenker (ex-SCORPIONS, ex-UFO, MSG) and KIPELOV (ex-Aria).
In summer 2015 the band went touring in support of the album around Europe.
The performances happened in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, France and Holland. The highlight of the tour was a big international «Dobry Festival 2015» performance in Slovakia.
Autumn 2015 was marked by the release of the internet mini-album “Ascending” that included the “Fantasia” songlist with Russian lyrics, the lyric-video to “Ascending” and a documentary about the Summer European tour.
In the end of 2015 and 2016 ESTATE went on big tours around Russia which resulted in two musicians leaving the band but despite this the band is still working on new material.
At the present moment the band has finished the work on the second full-length album “Mirrorland” and everyone is full of hopes it’s going to be a success. New complicated arrangement added up some progressive and epic tension to the sound.
It features guest musicians such as MATS LEVEN (Therion, Y.Malsmsteen, and Treat) and MARK BOALS (Y.Malmsteen, Royal Hunt, T.Nugent, and Ring of Fire).
Fawn Reginald, a well-known creature from the magic world, is again there on the cover. And Leo Hao, who drew the cover art for such bands as BLIND GUARDIAN, ICED EARTH, PRIMAL FEAR and other renowned musicians, is again the author of the artwork.
In early January 2018 ESTATE released «Winter Kingdom» is the first video single from the album «Mirrorland» which will be released worldwide through Mighty Music on the 20th of April 2018 on Cd and digital.
Beautilful melodies, catchy riffs, big choruses and the feeling of the cold North. This is what Angel Heart is all about. It’s melodic hard rock/heavy metal fronted by the amazing singer Trine Elise Johansen.

Angel Heart (2018)
Remember the well established Norwegian heavy metal band Highland Glory?
Most of the members have now formed a new band called Angel Heart and they are now ready to release their debut “Angel Heart” on Mighty Music 18th of May.
“Three of us used to play in the metal band Highland Glory, who released 3 albums worldwide. Our musical roots belong in the 80`s hard rock / heavy metal, where bands like Dio, Dokken, Queensryche and Judas Priest ruled the scene. We are very happy that Mighty Music believes in us, and are really looking forward to be working with them”. Lars André Rørvik Larsen

Monster (2018) Higher Than The Sun (2016)
Sandberg has always had an extreme interest in music, especially in the metal-genre.
After several years of psychological strain and battles between dark thoughts, his life and own world collapsed in 2013. Sandberg eventually started writing down his darkets thoughts and feelings, as a part of his therapy which resulted in the first album “Higher Than The Sun” released in 2016.
It was an album where vocalist Kim Sandberg opens his heart and tells his personal story about a challenging period of time, which were filled with thoughts of darkness. This album was produced as a part of his own therapy.
And now in 2018 they are ready to release their second album “Monster”. An album containing 8 hard rocking tracks. All of them with a modern touch and feeling to the sound. It’s a dark album, with heavy riffs and with great choruses, sung by the raw and powerful voice of Kim Sandberg.
MANIGANCE will release their new Album “Machine Nation” worldwide (ex. France) through Mighty Music in February 2018 and will again be on the road in March 2018 for an European tour of 18 dates with MYRATH.

Album, “Machine Nation” – 2018
MANIGANCE was founded in 2002 and released the album “Angel or demon” the same year. Afterwards six studio albums and a live album have seen the light of day. On top of that, MANIGANCE has shared live scenes with bands like ADAGIO, FREEDOM CALL, STRATOVARIUS, DRAGONFORCE, ADX, and even THE SCORPIONS at the Olympia (Paris).
MANIGANCE has also participated in numerous festivals in France and abroad (Hellfest, Raismes Fest, PPM Fest, Rockalies, …). Rewarded with two “Hard Rock” trophies as the best French band within the melodic power metal genre, MANIGANCE are today considered one of the heavy weights on the French metal scene.
After the release of “Récidive” (2011) which was album of the month in Rock Hard France and received 87/100 from Burnn in Japan, the band released the equally praised album “Volte Face” in 2014 and toured a lot.
Take old school death metal, add a healthy dose of groove, a pinch of thrash and round it up with a lot of melody…and you’ll get the powerful essence of Desdemonia: Melodic Death Thrash Metal
After years of efforts and experiences, Desdemonia’s fourth longplayer “Anguish” is set to be released in March 2018 via Mighty Music.
On their new record, the quartet yet again combine catchiness with raw, vicious riffage and grim weighty vocals, while more quiet and melodic moments give their music the right dynamics. The aggressive and gloomy atmosphere is being underlined by lyrics that explore the fears and dark thoughts of the human mind. This contemporary issue being universal, all four band members shared their thoughts and contributed to the lyrics.

“I was searching for a record company that would see my vision as a solo artist so I reached out to Mike Tramp and he suggested I speak with Michael H. Andersen at Mighty Music. Michael teamed me up with the Danish producer and song writing team Marco Angioni and Martin Jepsen Andersen, both from the band Meridian. The collaboration we’re working on is exactly where I want to go musically – and Michael H. Andersen and Mighty Music have given me a home to release my new record and given me 100% support and belief in this new record! The album will be recorded at Death Island Studio in Denmark with Marco Angioni as producer, and is expected to be released in late 2018. Touring for the album will follow” David Reece, January 2018
“I know David Reece is so much more, but the “Eat The Heat” record is one of those albums from the late 80s I still play a lot. Listening to that album on my walkman made life a lot easier being a teenager in suburbia, Denmark in the late 80s. Having said that, it is amazing to witness how much on fire David still is today. His vocal skills are still in another league and this man definitely has the energy to make a great new album. Proud to be welcoming you to my home, David” Michael H. Andersen, Mighty Music
Heavy metal vocalist, songwriter and former Accept/Bonfire frontman, David Reece, will be releasing his long awaited new solo album “Resilient Heart” worldwide through Mighty Music in November 2018.
“Resilient Heart” an album rich on full blown melodic heavy metal, will be the follow up album from his latest solo album “Compromise” released in 2013.
“Resilient Heart” is the perfect album for all fans of heavy metal. It’s a wide album containing all of the greatest elements within heavy rock and melodic metal. Yet with a modern production.
The first single of the album “Anytime At All” is a wonderful heavy rocker with a touch of Coverdale and Whitesnake inspiration. A song with a powerfull riff, and a strong verse leading up to a bombastic sing-a-long chorus, where a song like”Perfect Apocalypse” stands out with it’s progressive Pretty Maids inspirered elements.
On “Resilient Heart” David Reece has teamed up with the Danish musicians Marco Angioni (guitar), Martin J. Andersen (guitar), Malte Frederik Burkert (bass) and Sigurd J. Jensen (drums).
“Resilient Heart” comes with two different tracklist. One for CD/digital and one for the ltd. 500 blood red vinyl edition.
23 Acez was founded by Benny Willaert (“Zors”) in 2010. He started writing songs and hooked up with Pete Mush and altogether they recorded 12 songs which became the album “Crossroads”. To keep it simple, Zors played (almost) all guitars, including the bass. For extra lead guitars he asked Tom Tas and Dario Frodo to add some extra sauce. These guys are extremely talented and especially very enthusiastic. The intention was to keep it raw and pure, not too many rehearsals, not overdoing it, not overthinking it… just plain Rock’N’Roll!
After a while it became clear there was some demand for live performances. In came Jonathan Braeckman on the drums and Tom Mundez on the bass. Tom Tas, who was already on the first album, agreed to join the live band.
Material for a new album was pre-produced in a year time. After that it took a couple of months to record the songs in a proper way. Pete Mush, who produced the first album, was a very important factor in this process. The result is “Redemption Waves”. Lyrically the theme of the album is about the search for solving problems on an emotional and personal level, without being too much of a “Dr. Phil”. We believe that good lyrics are a sequence of words which anyone can relate to. They can be mysterious without being too obvious. Musically we love it when a song sticks to your ears with the necessary hooks and “earworms”. That’s why melody is a key ingredient to 23 Acez’ music.
Basically 23 Acez is a bunch of friends who love playing music. In the past all members have been involved in different projects in different styles. Nowadays they play where their hearts are at… riff oriented melodic rock – songs that grab you by the throat and kick you in the groin!! Take a listen and get on the wave…
“Redemption Waves” will be released on January 12th 2015 via Mighty Music

9000 John Doe – a rock ‘n’ metal band from Aalborg in Denmark – have with the self-proclaimed music style ‘Hillbilly Hardcore’ ravaged the Danish metal scene in some years now. In 2011 they released the debut album with the expressive title “Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over” and now they are ready with the follow-up “Redneck Is The New Black”.
9000 JOHN DOE is very much a live band that has thrilled audiences and critics since they started in 2008. The strength of the band is the self-confident attitude on stage and the energetic live shows. It was these abilities that got the band nominated as “Metal Live Band Of The Year” back in 2009 and top-marks from the Danish webzines for their performances on festivals like Aalborg Metal Festival and Day Of Decay.
9000 John Doe knows only one road – down the Route 666 – the reckless rock attitude and the heavy sound of their rock ‘n’ metal universe will leave its mark at every show. The mission is to highlight northern Jutland as rock ‘n’ metal capital of Denmark and awaken the inner redneck of the listener. Who the fuck is 9000 John Doe? As the name implies is a local band from Aalborg consisting of pure rednecks with their roots deep buried in old school rock ‘n’ roll and modern melodic metal. The band consist of Tommy Knøs with his spitting acid vocal, Morten Højer on vicious guitar, Mikkel Clausen on deadly bass while Morten Larsen leads the rhythmic assault on drums. The musical signature is piercing guitar-riffs, hard-hitting bass and fearsome ”in your face” vocals – all kept alive by the thunderous power of the drums. The bands mix of old school rock ’n’ roll and metal appeals to fans of Guns ’n’ Roses ranging to Pantera and beyond! ”Redneck Is The New Black” states a darker and more metallic side of the band – however still keeping the well-known rock & roll attitude and a strictly trucker rockin’ hard-hitting hillbillies attitude with denim and insignias as an expression. The album is guested by the popular Danish rapper Jonny Hefty, who with his metal background (Geronimo) is a good match for 9000 John Doe. Together they deliver a cheeky bout of heavy-rap that doesn’t make a secret out of the Aalborg-roots. Just like the debut album, it was recorded, mixed and mastered by Rasmus Jakobsen (ex-Mercenary) in Unit1 Studios.
9000 John Doe – Redneck Is The New Black CD – 2014 PMZ119 (Denmark) Release: TBA
