MASTERS OF DISGUISE – Back With A Vengeance

Even though it may seem so at first glance, “Back With A Vengeance” by MASTERS OF DISGUISE is NOT copying the legendary past of Savage Grace, the speed metal legends whose name can still be seen on patches on the jackets of one in three metal fans. No, MASTERS OF DISGUISE fills the musical gap, which Savage Grace left behind them, and they do it brilliantly with incredible self-assurance. “Back With A Vengeance” is a furious firework of speed and power, topped with a decent portion of melodies taking their talents to the musical limits.

 

Tracklisting:
  •  01. Back With A Vengeance / 2:02
  •  02. Never Surrender / 4:41
  •  03. The Omen / 4:10
  •  04. For Now And All Time (Knutson’s Return) / 4:43
  •  05. Scepters Of Deceit / 3:30
  •  06. Alliance / 4:27
  •  07. Sons Of The Doomed / 4:47
  •  08. Liar / 5:14
  •  09. Into The Unknown / 4:10
  •  10. The Templars’ Gold / 5:29

Total playing time 43:05
 
Watch the full disturbing video “For Now And All Time (Knutson’s Return)” down below!
 

 

  • Impressive Speed-/Power Metal debut with cult character.
  • In the musical footsteps of the US Metal legends Savage Grace.
  • New sensational band, formed by established musicians from bands such as Roxxcalibur, Abandoned, Manilla Road and ex-Viron.
  • Extensive live activities to support the album, e.g. Tour with Manilla Road, etc…

LUCID DREAMING – The Chronicles Pt. I

Concept album by Elvenpath guitarist Till Oberboßel feat. Alexx Stahl (Roxxcalibur), Jutta Weinhold (ex-Zed Yago, Jutta Weinhold Band), Thassilo Herbert (Dragonsfire) and Leo Stivala (Forsaken) on vocals, Michael Petrick (Synchronic) and Oliver Rossow (Elvenpath) on guitars. LUCID DREAMING do not blow up their sound with over-produced keyboards and also do not care for thousands of effects – they simply limit themselves to the classic structures of Power Metal: guitars, bass, drums, plus driving rhythms. That distinguishes them from their competitors like Ayreon, Avantasia, or Missa Mercuria.

 

Tracklisting:
  •  01. Introduction / 1:01
  •  02. Motherless Child / 7:38
  •  03. The Quest For The White Pig / 6:44
  •  04. Side By Side / 7:25
  •  05. To Caer Dathyl / 11:34
  •  06. Swords For Prydain / 8:04
  •  07. Land Of Darkness / 6:10
  •  08. Where Evil Rides / 7:01
  •  09. The Price / 7:53
  •  10. No Turning Back / 6:40
  •  11. Farewell / 6:03

Total playing time 76:07

 

  • Concept album in the style of Avantasia, Ayreon, Missa Mercuria.
  • Explicitly less keyboards, considerably more classic Power Metal guitars
  • Many popular Metal artists are involved, such as: Alexx Stahl (Roxxcalibur), Chris Marino (Scarlatyna), Jutta Weinhold (ex-Zed Yago, Jutta Weinhold Band), etc…
  • Unique, one-of-a-kind style featuring subtle folkloristic elements.
