Screaming Beast – Our New Narrative Of Hate
Release date: 23.03.2018
Video link “Despair”: https://youtu.be/uWBz7igWnU4
Formed from the depths of the much revered Manchester (UK) metal scene, Screaming Beast fuse heavy metal and the swagger of the deep south to bring you groovy and bluesy melodic metal. Influences of the band include: Black Label Society, Pantera, Lamb of God, Strapping Young Lad, Machine Head, In Flames, Dream Theater, At the Gates, The Haunted, Alter Bridge…. To name just a few.
The band began as the project of vocalist Anton War and drummer Daniel Mucs in the summer of 2013. Once songs took shape, the band released the first EP “Blistering Lies” in February of 2014, followed by a second EP “To Assail and Conquer” in September 2015.
Soon after these releases, sights for the stage were set, and the bands line-up was solidified. Daniel and Anton are joined by Arun Kamath (guitar, backing vocals), Rory Vallely (guitar) and Jason Hartley-Smith (bass, backing vocals).
Having each individually forged their own creative paths over the years, and with a lifetimes worth of combined musical experience, all five of these rather talented and handsome chaps are connected by their love for creating and playing the best music possible, and having jolly good fun in the process!
Lyrically, the band draws on a healthy mix of personal experience and outward commentary. While not wishing to preach or force a particular message upon anyone, the listener is taken on a journey through the mind-set of the songs protagonists.
After a successful live outing with the full line up in November 2017, Screaming Beast brings you their debut album “Our New Narrative of Hate” in 2018. The band promises ten tracks of groovers, shakers, bruisers and head banging neck-breakers.
Screaming Beast will be taking the material to the live setting around the world in the following months. Check out the tour dates page for upcoming shows.
German label METALAPOLIS RECORDS will release the new album “Cold Star Dancer” from Hard Rock band MAVERICK on April 6th, 2018! Please, find the key facts about the band and the new album below. The PR started yesterday via Haulix and all registered contacts should have received their download invitation already.
Product: Maverick – Cold Star Dancer
Release date: April 6th, 2018
Label: Metalapolis Records
Founded back in 2012 from the Balfour brothers Ryan and David, Maverick soon could establish themselves in the scene. With their first album „Quid Pro Quo“ they already could tour in Europe together with the Swedish Hard Rock stars THE POODLES. The from press and fans very well reviewed second album „Big Red“ saw the 5-piece from Belfast/Northern Ireland again on the road with Swedish superstars TREAT. They also played festivals like H.E.A.T FESTIVAL (Germany), ICEROCK and ROCKNACHT TENNWIL (Switzerland) and ROCKINGHAM in the UK, which helped them to grow their solid fan base to a massive one!
The new album „Cold Star Dancer“ marks a consequent follow-up to „Big Red“. Groovy and modern played Heavy Rock with killer hooklines and well produced by Neal Calderwood in the Manor Park Studios in Belfast. Singer David Balfour proves that he is one of the new heroes of the current Hard Rock generation and guitarist Ryan Balfour, who played almost all the guitars himself (second guitarist Terry McHugh left the band during the production), is without a doubt one of the upcoming shredders! Some songs saw guest performances from TREAT guitarist Anders Wikström („Ex Machina“ and „Cold Star Dancer“) and STORMZONE guitarist Steve Moore (Myrmidon“, „Viper“ and „Devil's Night“). Until they'll find a permanent new guitar player, Steve Moore will help the band out on live shows.
Line Up: David Balfour – vocals, Ryan Balfour – guitar, Richie Diver – bass, Jonathan Millar - drums

AOR Heaven’s March 23rd, 2018 release will be the first solo album of former Michael Schenker Group and current Stargazery singer Jari Tiura. “Kings Of Lions” will be available on CD and digital.
The PR via Haulix will start on Wednesday! Jari also will be available for interviews.
Product: Jari Tiura – King Of Lions
Release date: 23.03.2018
Label: AOR Heaven
Jari Tiura, former Michael Schenker Group and current Stargazery and Century Lost singer, will release his debut solo album on 23rd March 2018. ‘King Of Lions’ is a bit different than his previous outputs. The solo debut album has a mark of AOR to it, but also offers genuine hard rock feeling at times.
Jari Tiura was born 1968 in Tampere, Finland. He began to sing around the age of 17 when he also formed his first real band Crommer. Two years later the band changed their name to Bourbon and started to play gigs in their hometown.
A big change in Jari Tiura’s musical career happened in the end of the 90´s, when he joined Snakegod, a Finnish power metal band. With Snakegod he released an album called “Invitation” in 2001.
In 2004 Michael Schenker contacted Jari Tiura and asked him if he would like to fly over to London for an audition gig. Everything went well and Jari even recorded most of his lead vocals for the upcoming MSG release “Tales Of Rock N Roll” during his stay in London. The first MSG concert featuring Jari Tiura on vocals took place in 2006. The show was broadcasted live from Underground, Cologne and aired on the show “Rockpalast” on German TV.
Between 2006 and 2007 Jari toured with MSG in Europe, Asia, the USA and Japan, and played big festivals like Wacken Open Air and Sweden Rock to name a few.
After leaving MSG, the singer joined Finnish band Stargazery. With Stargazery, he so far has released two albums, "Eye On The Sky" (2011) and "Stars Aligned" (2015). He is also a member of a new group called Century Lost which is currently working on a debut album to be released in 2018.
A few years ago Jari Tiura and his good friend and producer Sami Ala-lahti hooked up and started to write music together for his first solo album. “King Of Lions” is a release that, from the beginning, was meant to sound different from anything he had done in the past. Sami Ala-lahti handled the production and also played rhythm guitars, sang backing vocals and did some programming.
This release also features Yrjö Ella on lead guitars, Jaan Wessman on bass and drums. On keyboards you will find Jussi Kulomaa, Jani Kemppinen and Mikko Kangasjärvi. Jari Tiura is the executive producer. “King Of Lions” was mixed by Antto Tuomainen and mastered by Esa Orjatsalo.

The band says: ”We’ve been planning the album for 4 years, but time was a factor that didn’t work in our favor, so it wasn’t until 2017 we properly started to work on it. And we are very proud of the end result.”

Just like before, the Borg brothers wrote and produced all songs together. The record will be recorded and mixed by Christoffer (Evergrey, Art Nation and Kee Marcello) at Top Floor Studios, Gothenburg.
