Danish thrash metal veterans ARTILLERY will release their new album, “Legions”, in Europe on November 22 via Metal Blade Records. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include “Chill My Bones”, “God Feather”, “Legions”, “Wardrum Heartbeat”, “Global Flatline” and “Anno Requiem”. The digipack version of the album will include two bonus tracks: re-recorded versions of songs that originally appeared on ARTILLERY‘s 1995 debut, “Fear Of Tomorrow”.

In a recent interview with, ARTILLERY guitarist Michael Stützer stated about the upcoming CD: “I personally think it’s the best production we ever had on a ARTILLERY album. It’s very raw and heavy.”

He continued: “Our new drummer, Josua [Madsen] and new vocalist, Michael [Bastholm Dahl], really deliver the goods on this album, Josua is an amazing drummer and real nice guy and Michael is the singer in ARTILLERY who is the closest ever to [original ARTLLERY vocalist] Flemming Ronsdorf beside putting a lot of new elements in the band because of his vocal range. He is also writing some great lyrics. So this band is a very complete unit.”

Regarding what qualities they were looking for in a singer following last year’s departure of Søren Adamsen, Michael said: “You will never hear ARTILLERY with a growler or a pop singer, but sung vocals with melody and rawness at the same time. Actually, we headhunted Michael from a cover band who played MERCYFUL FATE / KING DIAMOND covers, so we knew he could sing the old ARTILLERY songs very good.”

ARTILLERY 2013 is:

Michael Bastholm Dahl – Vocals
Michael Stützer – Guitar
Morten Stützer – Guitar
Peter Thorslund – Bass
Josua Madsen – Drums

As was previously announced, Moonspell’s new album “Alpha Noir” will be released on April 27th and will also be available as a deluxe special edition including the musical twin “Omega White.”

Both releases were produced and mixed by Tue Madsen and pre-produced by Benny Richter. The band will present the new songs at upcoming summer festival appearances. The double album “Alpha Noir” / “Omega White” will be played in its entirety at Lisbon’s Campo Pequeno, that holds 5000 fans, with the most daring stage set and visuals the band has ever tried. Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“A true band has to have a glorious past, a solid present, and a bright future. More than that, a true band has to know how to live through all these seasons, dealing with their ghosts, their shadows, their aim at the light, moulding darkness with personality, with the impulse to be better, to do better while getting close to theirselves. Their true heart, soul and flesh. Never has a Moonspell album come so close to being the new opus magna (masterpiece). “Alpha Noir” is scheduled to be proudly released by Napalm Records on the 27th of April, when spring racks through the wastes of winter, bursting new colors over familiar sights, once silent and white, yet now fiery under the blackest of suns.

“The concept of this new record, painstakingly composed by the Portuguese gothic metal knights over the past three years, following the critically acclaimed ‘Night Eternal,’ is bulletproof. The band managed to split their heart and soul in half, and the result is that they came even closer to themselves: the ambitious band they always were with a undying wish to not claim any throne, but to build their own ships that would take them and their fans to ‘give new worlds to the world,’ like in the Age of Discovery, where the Portuguese were a leading force in the world.

“With their country drowned in a corrosive crisis, Moonspell filled their lungs with pride and created an incendiary album, with nine outbursts of their rockiest and thrashier riffs made superiorly dimensioned by the reindivictative lyrical content and songs structure that take you by storm from the get-go. Moonspell has tapped a notch into their energy-filled gothic metal by adding a guitar wall forged by timeless artists: Bathory, King Diamond, and even old thrash metal legends like Onslaught and Metallica’s early Works, or Testament and Artillery make Alpha Noir a truly surprising and fresh record, in which all the songs have climax with a high-tension charm that will for sure electricize live audiences everywhere.

“Songs like the title track (Alpha Noir), the infectious ‘Versus,’ the wolf hymn ‘Lickanthrope,’ or the in- Portuguese-sung ‘Em nome do Medo’ (In the Name of Fear), as well as the closing epic ‘Grandstand,’ might get you a welcoming chilling revisitation of the past, but make no mistake: ‘Alpha Noir’ is a leap of faith and a belief in their writing skills and progressive musicianship.

“Together with ‘Alpha Noir,’ packed in a deluxe and special edition on digipack, Moonspell and Napalm offer no live DVD, ‘making of,’ or any other kind of filler. Instead, they put another offering on the table: ‘Ómega White,’ the musical twin of ‘Alpha Noir;’ a collection of eight songs of pure atmosphere and shadow, close to their breakthrough album ‘Irreligious,’ in a just homage to their Type O Negative and Sisters of Mercy roots. Tracks like the erotic ‘Herodisiac,’ the catchy ‘White Skies’ or the heartbreaking ‘Whiteomega’ will certainly keep you in dark company through a night of fear and loss, both soothing and provoking. Both masterpieces were produced and mixed by Tue Madsen and pre-produced by Benny Richter!

“Each song a jewel; each song a stronghold! Keep your watch and do not miss this new Moonspell record, for it is a true mortal sin to stay away from these eighty minutes of music, beautifully and violently carved by one of the most legendary and imaginative bands ever to surface the European scene. Do not forget to get your hands on this masterpiece and to catch the band live at any one of the summer festivals around Europe. ‘Alpha Noir’/’Omega White’ will also be played in their entirety in Lisbon’s Campo Pequeno to 5,000 fans and with the most daring stage set and visuals the band has ever tried.”
