Winterstorm releases music video for epic, new album single "Future Times"! New album, "Everfrost", will be out this summer on AFM Records.

July 14, 2023 will see power metal act WINTERSTORM release their upcoming, fifth studio album entitled "Everfrost". It's their first offering since 2016, and their debut with powerhouse label AFM Records. "Winter" stands for nordic viking and folk metal, the "Storm" for fast-paced power metal, combined with epic and orchestral metal facettes, WINTERSTORM shines in a new splendor as first single releases prove. Following the previously-shared, first album appetizer "To The End Of All Known", now, the five-piece has released a music video for "Future Times"! The comments:

"Future Times is about focusing on the changeable future instead of wasting time on the unchangeable past. 

Whether it's the small things everyday or big ones like the destruction of our planet — it's always worth getting the focus right."

It’s the melodic grandeur, that clearly marks the foreground of WINTERSTORM, reflected in heavily catchy choruses and colossal, polyphonic vocals. Striking elements of different metal styles merge with each other and get a completely new impression, that WINTERSTORM’s forthcoming record may be their most versatile and powerful album to date; one that does not have to hide behind proved genre colleagues such as Blind Guardian or Rhapsody Of Fire. "Everfrost" will be out as CD Digipak, limited clear blue Vinyl and Boxset on July 14, 2023 through AFM Records, the pre-sale is available online at THIS LOCATION!


"Everfrost" track listing:

01. Origin
02. To The End Of All Known
03. The Phoenix Died (Remember)
04. Circle Of Greed
05. Future Times
06. Everfrost
07. Final Journey
08. Fate Of The Atlanteans
09. Crusade
10. Overcome The Fear
11. Silence





UK indie pop outfit Jody and the Jerms present their infectious single 'Insatiable', showcasing exemplary buoyant indie pop that harkens back to the feel-good vibes of another less complicated time. This is the second taste of their full-length album 'Wonder', to be released on April 21 via JATJ Records, following up the lead track 'Started Something'.

"Insatiable was inspired by the personal story of someone I once knew. The lyrics are predominantly about a high octane, powerful, larger than life, selfish man who lives life to the excess and well beyond his means. His domineering appetite for the best of everything, combined with his complete sense of self entitlement, does not leave much room for others' feelings," says Jody Jeger.

"In this song, it leaves his neglected partner feeling ignored, playing second fiddle to his ego and needing the bravery to leave. If only someone could make him see!"  

Their third album to date, this new collection of 12 tracks was produced, mixed and mastered by RIDE frontman Mark Gardener at his OX4 Sound Studio in Oxfordshire. Loaded with a healthy dose of melodic chrystallised indie pop that is heartfelt and honest, they present endearing jangle-pop songs that are both evocative and relatable.

"We recorded the guitars and drums with Mark Gardener at his OX4 Sound Studio almost as an afterthought following a long day of recording tracks for the 'Wonder' album. We were about to call it a day, but we just kinda let rip with the guitar riff and a real nice and simple rock drum beat. But it wasn’t until Jody set the song’s direction with the lyrics that we know we had a really good single," says Niall Jeger.

Championed by the late Janice Long at BBC, among others, Jody and the Jerms is a collective revolving around Jody Jeger (vocals) and Niall Jeger (guitars and vocals) with other band members coming from The Anydays, who have graced the pages of NME, played with Radiohead and Supergrass, and were featured on Mark Radcliffe at BBC Radio 2.

'Wonder' follows their ‘Flicker’ album (2022) and debut album 'Deeper' (2020). Here, the Jerms deliver 12 jangle-pop gems, crafted with a sanguine innocence and vivid relatability. Warmly nostalgic and graced by Jody’s sweet-natured vocal, the band's output radiates somewhere between The Go-Go's, Blondie, The Bangles and The Darling Buds.

Formed in Oxford in 2019, Jody and the Jerms have been writing, recording and performing their blend of melodic and uplifting indie/ alt rock ever since, having enjoyed national airtime on Radio X (UK), Sirius XM (USA) and RTVE (Spain), as well as BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, BBC Wales and BBC Ulster.  

Jody and the Jerms' sound recalls those untouchable days indie music enjoyed in the 90s, possessing seemingly effortlessness melodies and choruses which embed themselves in your head for days.

As of March 29, 'Insatiable' is available on BandcampSpotifyApple Music and other fine digital music platforms. The 'Wonder' album will be released on April 21 on limited edition CD, pretty pink vinyl and digitally. Jody and the Jerms will be touring the UK in support of this release.

Sacred Outcry has revealed some details about its new album. The sophomore album of the Greek metallers is going to be titled "Towers of Gold" and it will be out on the 19th of May, 2023. Below you can read the album's tracklist and see the album's cover as well as read the press release of the band's reocrd label, No Remorse Records.

Time devours all... Dreams, regrets, memories... Memories become legend, legend fades to myth, and myth... So easily forgotten...
A God... A King... A Pawn... The time is at hand... Finally, the shadows grow thick and their crimson tint pulses vibrant...
Power... Knowledge... Gold... He will have it all...
The snake eats its tail and the wheel of time turns... But sometimes the hand of fate must be forced...
We are more than thrilled to reveal the title, tracklist and cover artwork of Sacred Outcry’s second chapter "Towers of Gold", the perfect realisation of the band's trademark dark, epic power metal.
Written and arranged by the band’s mastermind George Apalodimas, "Towers of Gold" is the first album featuring the band’s brand-new line-up of axeman Steve Lado, drummer Defkalion Dimos and the legendary Daniel Heiman behind the mic.
The long-awaited successor to their highly acclaimed debut "Damned for All Time" was fine-tuned to perfection by the band and was masterfully mixed & mastered by Steve Lado in SL Studio, Greece.
"Towers of Gold" is a full concept album directly tied to the golden age of late '90s and early '00s power metal, fused with the legendary '80s US metal scene, where Warlord meets Blind Guardian and Manowar joins Lost Horizon on a mystical journey through ten chapters of dark epic metal.
Featuring two very special guests, Jeff Black of Gatekeeper on the 12 string guitars and Yorgos Karagiannis on acoustic guitars. The cover art is once again a creation of George Apalodimas who was also responsible for the band's debut.
1. Through Lands Forgotten (At The Crossroads Of Fate)
2. The Flame Rekindled (Lurid Lights And Drunken Revelry)
