Ukrainian Power Metallers DEFIANT to Release 'Time Isn't Healing' in November

Ukrainian Power Metal quintet DEFIANT will release sophomore full-length album Time Isn't Healing November 25. The album's title track is streaming here:

Since its formation in 2008, DEFIANT's mission has been to enthrall fans with a brand of power metal that is as muscular as it is melodic. DEFIANT went on to release no less than three EPs and 2012's full-length debut Masquerade, collectively laying the groundwork for what can only be called its magnum opus: Time Isn't Healing. The crunching riffs and soaring leads of guitarist Andrey Turkovsky blend seamlessly with the epic, often breathtaking keyboard work of Victoria Terzieva, while Stanislav Proshkin's gritty yet tuneful vocals offer a captivating stamp of distinction. The clanging bass lines of Oleg Yakovlev and airtight drumming of Eugeniy Smolin form a robust rhythmic foundation.

But it's the quality and consistency of the songwriting that is perhaps most impressive about the new album. Whether the up-tempo power metal pummel of "Milestones of Time" or the mid-tempo elegance of "According to the Acts," Time Isn't Healing sinks the hooks in deep and keep the listener in a state of rapt attention from beginning to end.

Fans of HELLOWEEN, RAGE, and similar icons of the genre are strongly encouraged to give this one a spin.

Balfor is a Ukrainian Black Metal band from Kyiv featuring Khors, Raventale and ex-Hate Forest members. The band plays a style that can be to define as Barbaric Black Metal, a name that only partly explains the kind of dark, dramatic music they play. Music that is an epic, melodic and a blastingly fast mixture of Black and Death Metal.

Band's frontman, continuously since its founding, is Anton Thorgeir Prymak - lead vocals, guitars and as well as main composer.
The first album “Volki Severa” was released by German label E.O.L.P. Production and received many good reviews. Meantime, band completed their first Ukrainian tour.
Next release “Pure Barbaric” in a move calculated to bring Balfor to the attention of a much larger audience was released for free download via a net-label. It was a move that was extremely successful in terms of increasing interest to the band. Using the resources and capabilities of social media Balfor manages to attract new listeners worldwide.

Writing a new album “Barbaric Blood” Balfor signed a contract and publishes it on Pulverised Records.  European tour in support of the album was very successful. The band played shows in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland. Balfor also take a part on such well-known European metal festivals like: Eindhoven Metal Meeting (NL), Rockmaraton (HU), Dong Open Air (DE), Global East (UA), Metal Heads Mission (UA), Kilkim Zaibu (LT), Gothoom (SK), Carpathian Alliance (UA), Metal Crowd (BEL), etc.

After that “Barbaric Blood” was released by CD-Maximum Records for CIS and Baltic countries under the license of Pulverised Records.

Second European tour Balfor shared in the company of black metal bands Emptiness and Christ Agony.

Without dwelling on the achievements Balfor returned to Kyiv and recorded the EP “Haralds Of The Fall”.

And new album “Black Serpent Rising” was recorded shortly in 2015 and is awaiting release. Album interprets dark, barbaric past of humanity and ancient cults.
Having huge experience of live shows, impressive list of club shows and festivals. Band used widely social media platforms and has fan-base all around the world.
Balfor is a worthy representative of Ukrainian and East European metal scene.

NORTHERN CROWN Bring the Doom with "Les Autres"

Florida Doom Metal force NORTHERN CROWN in conjunction with Metal Underground are proud to announce the premiere of "Les Autres," a track from forthcoming album The Others. Stream it at the link below.

NORTHERN CROWN will release of full-length debut album The Others on October 14. Following 2014's critically acclaimed EP In the Hands of the Betrayer, the new album from NORTHERN CROWN is stretching out to new heights, with emphasis on the rock organ and a less rigid approach to the genre.

Pre-order: clic here

Check out another new track, "With Malicious Eye," at the following link:

Main songwriter and guitarist Zachary Randall notes that "this is easily the most personal art I've ever created, both musically and lyrically." The care and attention to detail have refined the songs, creating real character and vision. NORTHERN CROWN is the sound of realization and reaction, with a touch of smoke and mirrors. Equal parts austere and ostentatious, but heavy all the way through.

Vocalist/guitarist Frank Serafine notes, "we know what we're good at now, and focused more on bringing out those performances from each other." The long-running title track, recalling a quote from philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, is sure to be another enthralling critical favorite.

Serafine summons a heady blend of his influences, such as Ronnie James Dio, Rob Halford, Roy Khan, and Jorn Lande, for his performance. Former NORTHERN CROWN founding member Leona Hayward returns to the fold, rounding out the rhythm section with a heavy Steve Harris/Geezer Butler-inspired attack. Drummer Josh Brown is guided by the rule of elegant simplicity in his stylings and momentum. Guest performers on The Others also include NIGHTFALL/DARK HOUND guitarist Evan Hensley and organs by Vincent Perez.
