ROXXCALIBUR: Release date set for new album “Lords Of The NWOBHM”

 

The long-awaited, second album from Roxxcalibur, “Lords Of The NWOBHM” is already causing something of a stir. Even only months after the release of their debut album, “NWOBHM For Muthas” (April 2009) the fans were demanding another dose in the form of a CD. But the “Keepers of the Grail of NWOBHM” weren’t prepared to rush things. “To pick the right songs which also suit us as musicians, from a pool of first-class NWOBHM pearls, needs just as much time as it does to write our own songs”, explains singer Alexx Stahl. The band had planned to demonstrate an even wider view and more extreme selection of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal on “Lords Of The NWOBHM” than they did on their debut. “The finished CD shouldn’t just sound like the output of a coverband but should be as though it had come from one balanced mould.”.
