Blindstone

About

Blindstone is a true, old-school power trio, influenced by old giants like Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. That is, we find ourselves in a place where blues rock and hard rock meet, where there is both raw strength and occasionally psychedelic high ceilings.

It’s a musical universe with the big riff at the forefront, where the music takes time, with plenty of room for improvisation, and expressive, equilibrist guitar solos of the old 70’s school.

Blindstone has nine albums in its name and has toured in a large part of Europe. Most recently, Blindstone has acted as a backing band for blues legend Walter Trout, at a number of successful concerts in Denmark.

Martin Jepsen Andersen – guitars, vocals
Jesper Vegeberg Bunk – bass
Sigurd Jøhnk-Jensen – drums

E-Force

Always striving to gather a relevant and talented group of names in it’s catalog, Mighty Music is extremely proud to announce the enlistment of E-FORCE, the band led by ex-Voivod vocalist/bassist Eric Forrest, into its ranks. The first release under this partnership was E-Force’s fifth studio album, “Mindbender”, released on November 19th, 2021.

Forrest comments: “Very proud to announce the fact that the new E-Force “Mindbender” release will be a collaboration/cooperation with Mighty Music. This shit is going to kill you! Impulsive E-Force trademarks, with a side-order of Voivod! This dosage of mayhem is going to fuck you up! Not to mention, a hidden treasure… “Insect 2021”! Beware…“.

E-Force was formed in Montreal, Canada in 2001 by vocalist/bassist, Eric Forrest, upon his departure from the legendary Canadian cyber metallers Voivod. In all Eric appeared on two studio masterpieces, “Negatron” and “Phobos”, on the live album, “Voivod Lives” and on the compilation: “Kronik”. When leaving Voivod, Forrest used his nickname, “E-Force”, as the name for his new band.

Labeled monsters of thrash, Eric Forrest’s wide array of musical influences and vocal capabilities set E-Force apart from the pack and ensure that this band is very original. E-Force released their debut album “Evil Forces” to widespread critical acclaim in 2003. Soon after Forrest relocated to France, resulting in a line-up change.

In 2008, E-Force released their follow-up, “Modified Poison”. The album further expanded the intensity of the band, impressing both fans and critics alike.

In 2014 the band released their third album “The Curse”, on Mausoleum Records. “Curse” was a concept album based on a collection of songs describing the power and temptation of, and obsession with the female race.

The fourth album was released in 2015 on Mausoleum Records: “Demonikhol”, lyrically another concept album with alcohol as the subject matter, illustrating the ravages and destruction of all kinds it is capable of causing. Musically E-Force has become an intense and shatteringly percussive killing machine, driven by battering ram guitars, supporting Eric’s primal screaming vocal assault.

In 2017, to celebrate the anniversary of Voivod’s legendary album “Phobos”, Forrest led a European tour performing songs from “Negatron” and “Phobos” albums by Voivod. The band assembled for that tour was operating under the name “E-Force Performing Voivod”. In 2018 the tour achieved by participating to the “Brutal Assault” festival (Czech Republic).

Throughout the band’s 20 years career (performing in 20 countries, 250+ shows and several festival appearances) as well as some guests on different E-Force albums (Glen Drover, Kristian Niemann, to name a few), Eric will now return with the opus “Mindbender”, released in 2021 on Mighty Music records and involving the “E-Force Performing Voivod” line-up: Patrick Friedrich on drums and Sébastien Chiffot on guitars. “Mindbender” will still be in the catchy vein characterizing the E-Force style, but will also add slower tempos parts and particular ambiences, making the connection with Eric’s venture as a cult member of Voivod.

LIV SIN

Mighty Music is proud to announce the signing of Swedish metallers LIV SIN. The band led by ex-Sister Sin vocalist Liv Jagrell is working hard on their next studio album – their third – which is expected to be released in 2022.

We are very happy to join Mighty Music / Target Group“, Liv Sin comments. “In them we feel that we found a really good partner and support. We hope that this can help us grow as an international band. Right now we are working on our third album and preparing to get back out on tours as soon as that’s possible again.”

Liv Sin is a metal band from Stockholm, Sweden, founded in 2016 by Liv Jagrell.

She formed the band after her previous band, Sister Sin, decided to call it quits in 2015, after 13 years of touring Europe and US, supporting bands like Slayer, King Diamond, Motörhead, Doro, Arch Enemy, In This Moment,  W.A.S.P. and U.D.O.

Liv took all her charismatic energy from Sister Sin and transferred it into Liv Sin to create a band that sounded more metal and heavier than before. The sound of Liv Sin has been described to be in the vein of Judas Priest with a twist of Arch Enemy, the Gothenburg sound, and the modern American metal sound from bands such as Five Finger Death Punch. “Metal with attitude”.

The debut album ”Follow Me”, 2017 was produced by Stefan Kaufmann (ex. U.D.O. & ex. Accept) and Fitty Wienhold (ex. U.D.O.). Album number two, ”Burning Sermons”, released in 2019, was produced by Emil Nödtveidt (Deathstars). The music went into a new chapter with a sound that dived even deeper into darker riffs, melodic choruses and bigger music arrangements.

Last show before the pandemic were in Tokyo, Japan. In the wake of the pandemic, the band started to work on their third album, which strives to take the band even further forward musically and opens up for touring as soon as the pandemic is over!

On April 29th, the new single “The Process” was released, foreshowing great things for the upcoming album!

Line-up:

Per Bjevoluk – drums
Patrick Ankermark – guitars
Liv Jagrell – vocals
Daniel Skoglund – bass
Jay Matharu – lead guitar

Timechild

ABOUT

Timechild  is massive and organic heavy rock from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band’s soundscape is made up of a powerful and present lead vocal, characteristic twin guitars and atmospheric vocal harmonies, which together create their unique Scandinavian expression.

Timechild was formed in 2020 by four seasoned musicians from different corners of Denmark. With extensive past experience in a number of former and existing Danish rock and metal bands, the members had already crossed paths on both Danish and international stages. When the opportunity arose, they decided to unite their musical experiences and visions and created Timechild.

The debut album was written and recorded during the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, which paralysed the Danish and international music industry. However, this silence gave the band time to jointly develop their common sound and expression. The vision from the start was to show how heavy rock can continue to challenge and surprise audiences even in 2021. Although the foundation of the band’s sound universe is clearly laid by the rock giants of the past, Timechild’s inspiration is drawn from across both time and genres. The opportunity to dive into the music history of past decades, and through this define one’s own sound, is one of the greatest privileges that today’s musicians have at their disposal. We can learn from the past without being backward-looking or unoriginal and we can be relevant and innovative without having to define a new genre.

This same mindset also applies to Timechild’s lyrics. The title of the upcoming debut album “And Yet It Moves” is, according to legend, the last phrase uttered by physicist and philosopher Galileo Galilei after the Vatican forced him to recant his scientific belief, that the Earth moves around the sun and not the other way around. It is precisely this human search for the purpose of our own existence and the struggle to elevate ourselves above the laws of nature, that are recurring themes in the album’s textual universe.

The record is produced, mixed and mastered by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Jesper Binzer, Thundermother, Marco Mendoza, Artillery). With his vast experience in the genre, both as a producer and musician, Soren was a natural choice when the band’s songs were to be immortalised. The result is nine songs that show the band’s broad dynamic range. From quiet, dark and melodic passages to over-marching twin guitars and energetic heavy rock. With “And Yet it Moves”, Timechild is ready to wow audiences with their expression of heavy rock anno 2021.

Timechild’s debut album, “And Yet It Moves”, was released on November 12th 2021.

Killing

ABOUT

From east Jutland Denmark, comes the aggressive and vicious monster of energy Killing. Formed late 2013, with the sole purpose of writing uncompromising thrash metal, as in the good old days. Inspiration is drawn from the golden era of the genre, where bands like Slayer, Exodus, Kreator, and Metallica ruled the stage with an iron fist.

After years of concerts and songwriting, they released 2018s critically acclaimed EP “Toxic Asylum”, which was followed by a longer tour around northern Europe. The following year, the single “Raise Your Anger” was released, which was followed by a long series of festival performances.

The many shows has proven their worth, as the east Jutland quartet on stage, create an intense and engaging vibe, that echoes long after the lights go out. Due to Covid, the winter/spring tour of 2020 had to be cancelled. This meant the band could focus their strength towards recording their debut album. Which was completed autumn 2020 with Jacob Bredahl in Dead Rat Studio.

Early 2021 Killing signed a contract with Mighty Music, who will release the album “Face The Madness” on August 13 2021.

Demolizer

ABOUT

You can look for your battle vest. DEMOLIZER is the newest member of the Mighty Music family!

Demolizer, formed in 2018, plays gut-crushing, hard-hitting, and unfiltered thrash metal that will have you picking up your teeth with crushed fingers after barely surviving the pit.

Demolizer is the manifestation of a big, angry middle finger pointed towards the Establishment, giving you the hardest, fastest, and thrashiest thrash metal you could ever dream of! If you like Slayer, Exodus, and/or, Municipal Waste, then you will love these guys.

2019 brought a place in the finals in the Danish W:O:A Metal Battle as well as a demo + single – both D.I.Y-produced and now released on Spotify. 2019 was also spent touring Russia and Denmark, as well as the completion of the new debut album, “Thrashmageddon”! 

Thrashmageddon was recorded, mixed and mastered at Ballade Studios by Lasse Ballade himself: 

Demolizer possesses everything that the Danish metal scene has been missing. It’s 100% intensity and aggression without any unnecessary fucking around. But what really caught my attention with DEMOLIZER is that they can really write songs. Songs full of riffs and hooks, and songs that stick to your mind like a piece of gum under your left sneaker after they’ve torn you apart in the pit”.

“Thrashmageddon” will be released via Mighty Music in September on both CD & vinyl.

Ben “Polle” Radtleff: guitars, vocals

I’ll Be Damned

ABOUT

Mighty Music is bursting with pride to announce the signing of I’LL BE DAMNED. The Danish quintet plays God Damned Rock’n’Roll exclusively, explosively – and with a metal edge. The band started out in 2010 and consists of five guys paroling against rulers and organized religion. The members come from different backgrounds but are all deeply rooted in the Danish rock- and metal scene.

I’ll Be Damned has released an EP and two full-length albums so far, the latest being “Road To Disorder” in 2018, after which the band embarked on a tour in the home country with fellow Aarhus-band Baest. Since then the project has gone through line-up changes. Now, with a new vocalist and drummer, they are viciously eager to return to the scene.

Apart from two headlining tours in the home country, I’ll Be Damned has played a lot of shows in Germany, as well as Copenhell, Grimfest, SPOT Festival and festivals alike back home, and has supported the likes of Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, D:A:D, Airbourne and even Metallica.

The band just played Nordic Noise – Streaming For Vengeance – the world’s first two-day hard rock streaming festival – and subsequently signed a deal with Mighty Music/Target Group with the intention of taking the next step to the next level. The punchy 2020-edition of I’ll Be Damned comprises:
