12-06-17 | Delays, leaks & a 'Siren Song'

So after sending out some review copies, our upcoming album has leaked big time all over the internet. We are flattered due to the fact 'Path To Eternity' is obviously highly anticipated, but also encourage you to wait for the official release. After some unforeseen delays in production, this has been pushed to early December. In fact we are just waiting for the package to arrive which will happen any day now. In the mean time you can follow the 'Siren Song' in this official (!) lyric video - enjoy:

We're almost done recording our upcoming album 'Path To Eternity'. It will feature 14 brand new songs to be unleashed soon. Stay tuned for more updates coming next month! Additionally we finally have some merchandise for sale in our shop. Check out our shirts and girlies featuring the cover art of our EP 'Into the Fire'. This is a strictly limited run so make sure to get your size while they last. For those who want the real deal: on November 4th we will perform at Drunken Nights V in our hometown Erding. This will be another 90 min headline show, so better be ready for some serious headbanging. The crowd in Munich really blew as away at our last gig at Eddy's Rockclub, so it will be hard to beat them. But we know you can do it of course... 🙂 See you soon!
