The swedish Heavy Metal bloodbrothers of ENFORCER recently signed a new worldwide record deal with Nuclear Blast Records. Their new album is called „Death By Fire“ and will be released on February, 1st.
Bandleader, vocalist and guitar player Olof Wikstrand comments: „It feels great to finally have finished this long awaited third ENFORCER record. Now with Nuclear Blast on board we’re gonna make sure to spread it to every corner of this planet. You can expect nothing but the total, self defining ENFORCER record.“
Nuclear Blast head of A&R, Andy Siry says: „ We’ve been following the career of ENFORCER since their debut album, because from there on, they formed the spearhead of a new, young generation of traditionally influenced metal. We’re impressed by the bands consequent and authentic appearance, whether on stage, concerning their sound, their image and so on. This reminds of the atmosphere of departure and the rebellion, heavy metal represented at the beginning of the 80’s. ENFORCER have got that special something, represent their ideals and they know what they want. We’re looking forward to the upcoming CD and a long successful cooperation.”

French heavy metallers MYSTERY BLUE will release their 7th album, “Conquer The World” on December 21 worldwide via Road Show Productions.
The new album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Uwe Lulis (Grave Digger, Rebellion) at Black Solaris Studios, Frankfurt, Germany. The artwork and booklet was created by Jobert Mello, Sledgehammer Graphix (Sabaton, Primal Fear, Thunderbolt, Benedictum). Andreas Babuschkin (Paragon) feat. special guest vocals on the song “Running with the Pack“.
The foundation of MYSTERY BLUE dates back to 1982
Originally founded by the guitarist FRENZY PHILIPPON, MYSTERY BLUE rather quickly became a household name in the world of Hard Rock, as we called Metal in those pioneering days. The band released two successful albums, the eponymous debut long-player MYSTERY BLUE (AXE KILLER RECORDS), followed by CIRCLE OF SHAME (DREAM RECORDS/CBS), and toured Europe with big guns such as MOTÖRHEAD, DEF LEPPARD, SAXON, VENGEANCE, and fellow “Frenchies” H-BOMB and SATAN JOKERS
WITH A storming new stomp in their boots and a renewed, lithe swagger to their legendary sound, Saxon will release “Sacrifice”, in February 2013 through UDR. Taking a sharper, re-invigorated approach to the production, on this, their 20th album, Saxon have produced 10 of their strongest, heaviest and most inspired songs for many-a-year, and a more than worthy successor to their last album “A Call To Arms”.
“Less tricks, more power!” roars frontman and founding father Biff Byford, “my brief to the band was to be raw, be real and not be afraid to look back at the old classic material for inspiration.”
The album was recorded at LS Studios in Yorkshire and was produced by Byford with Andy Sneap mixing and engineering by Jacky Lehmann. It fairly bristles with muscular metallic intent, Paul Quinn’s and Doug Scarratt’s guitar Saxon “Sacrifice” – Pressreleasework the best it’s ever been, while Biff’s vocals sound fresher and livelier. The songwriting too harks back to a classic era in Saxon’s history, with the likes of ‘Warriors Of The Road’, ‘Wheels Of Terror’ and ‘Stand Up And Fight’ evoking the halcyon days of yore with a contemporary twist, the classic Saxon sound absorbing the snarl, ferocity and attitude of contemporary bands (and fans) such as Megadeth, as evidenced by the crunching title cut ‘Sacrifice’.
“It’s certainly been done from a more early ‘80s thrashier perspective,” explains Biff, “and it’s not just guitars bashing away willy-nilly, they’ve got a fresh drive, purpose and perspective.”
