NEWS:: STATE OF ROCK return in late 2018 with new album!
The meeting of minds in Nurnberg; Germany in 2009, through the brainstorm of Georg Siegl of AOR Heaven Records, sported an album, ‘Point of Destiny’, recorded and written by four European musicians; three from Germany and an English vocalist. Georg’s passion for Frontline guitarist, Robby Boebel to record again brought forth an album with Hutch Bauer on bass, Ramy Ali on the kit and Tony Mills (ex-SHY, TNT) on vocals.
The result was a melodic but very tough sounding album with solid production and songs that demanded a replay.
2017/18, sees a return to new recordings, by, ‘State of Rock’, now split between the UK with Pete Newdeck on drums and Mills being Sweden based, co-writing with Boebel for a second release. Robby Boebel comments: “It’s something really special to record an album with someone which I only knew from TV before. We’ve now been friends since many years and I’m really looking forward to record another album and live dates in late 2018 with Tony.”
With the promise of German festival appearances in late 2018, an autumn release guided by video and radio promo will give us a clearer picture of the, ‘State of Rock’, by December next year.

Wylde also brought in newcomer guitarist Miles Meakin who played guitar solos on the recordings and former band mate James Martin (Vega) who laid down keyboards on the tracks. After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.

About zombies, monsters and evil fairies - Persona non Grata will rise!
“Persona Non Grata” is the name of the third full-length release from the dark rockers EIGENSINN from Southern Germany. More than two years of hard work has left its mark on an album that will stand out from the crowd! During the cold and snowy January 2017 the band retired on a lonely farm house in Saxony. The magical and dark atmosphere of the abandoned landscape deeply engraved itself into the new songs. The outcome is a complex and brute Industrial Rock album, on which you can sense the sinister emotions living within each song as they touch upon subjects taboo to many. The bands lead singer Nemesis takes the listener on a journey from a morbid story teller rising up to a strong willed freedom fighter
The eleven ostentatious hard hitting tracks all stay true to EIGENSINN’s trademark sound. Mastermind Kai Stahlenberg’s production at the renowned Kohlekeller studio has produced an album that is both raw and punchy staying true to the bands hard hitting roots.
The album will be released on Pride & Joy Music on December 1st, 2017. EIGENSINN will tour all over Germany this November to support the US NDH legend HANZEL+GRETYL together with Reptil, to promote their new album.
“Persona Non Grata” will be released on December 1st, 2017 on Pride & Joy Music as CD & download. We will handle the PR for this release and will start with the digital PR via Haulix in week 42.

RIDDLEMASTER is the brainchild of Mark „The Shark“ Shelton and Rick Fisher. Rick Fisher was the drummer on the first MANILLA ROAD records from 1979 to 1984 including the signature song „Flaming Metal Systems“ and the iconic release „Crystal Logic“. Mark Shelton is founder, guitarist, vocalist and primary composer for MANILLA ROAD since its beginning in 1977 and is still going strong with the band.
Both are from Wichita Kansas in the USA. The RIDDLEMASTER project idea came up when Rick and Shark were discussing what MANILLA ROAD might sound like if Rick had never stopped performing with the band. The result is „Bring The Magik Down“. Accompanied by E.C. Hellwell on bass guitar this is an experiment in what might have been. The music within this album is full of classic rock and metal styles that are indeed reminiscent of the roots of their original band. Within this collection of tunes, you will find many styles woven together with a foundation in traditional rock n roll music. If you are a fan of early Manilla Road or a fan of classic Rock and Metal music this album by RIDDLEMASTER is a must have!!!
The album will be released on CD, on vinyl and as download on December 1st, 2017 on Metalapolis Records. We will handle the PR for this release and submit the album to press & radio via Haulix on Monday next week.

Bring The Magik Down (2017)
German label METALAPOLIS is proud to announce the release of Thrash metal band NIMROD B.C.’s new album “Gods Of War And Chaos” on CD, as download and on vinyl on December 1st, 2017! We’ll handle the PR for this release world-wide and are taking requests now. This album will be submitted to press & radio via Haulix on Monday next week.
NIMROD B.C. is a Thrash Metal Band which is around since 1985, founded by guitarist Chris Ira. In 1988 their first Demo-Tape „Time of Changes“ was released. It was a great success in the back then tape trader scene and got good reactions in magazines all over the world. For example it was chosen #1 demo of the year by FETU Magazine in Japan. In 1990 they got their first record deal, but the album was never released due different reasons in and outside the band. Chris was frustrated about the whole situation and left the band for some years.
In 2004 the band decided to release the old demo remastered with some unreleased studio tracks and live recordings, before another break was done. 5 years later Chris decided that it is time to reform the beast and started a new chapter under the NIMROD B.C. banner, together with Fernando Gonzales (bass), Cesar Anazco (guitar, ex Necrosis), Rodrigo Cerda (Drums) and singer Leonardo Caballero. After their comeback, they played major festivals in Chile, Argentina and big festivals in South America with bands like TWISTED SISTER, VOIVOD, MORBID ANGEL among others. In 2009 their album “Return To Babylon” saw the light of day and also received many great reviews such as “best Chile’s metal band ever” from Germany.
Their new album „God Of War And Chaos“ was produced by Chris himself at the Noctambulus Studios in Chile, before it was mixed in London by Darren Carikas. The mastering was done by one of the metal gurus, Bill Metoyer, who is well known for his work with SLAYER, DARK ANGEL, WASP, SACRED REICH and many more. The album features the new vocalist Gary Wayne, which was recruited to bring that one special tone to the NIMROD B.C. music.
Line-Up: Chris Ira – guitars; Gary Wayne – vocals; Fernando Gonzales – bass; Rodrigo Cerda – drums
