Comunicado Oficial de la Disolución de Azrael


 

Antes de todo un saludo de Manuel Arquellada Ruiz (Maolo) y dale las gracias por todo el apoyo y confianza en mis 30años en el mundo de la música. Siento por mí parte lo ocurrido y tomar la decisión la ruptura de la banda, sé todos los medios que me habéis dado cobertura Internacionalmente por la apuesta a Azrael. Un abrazo, deseo el mismo apoyo con la nueva banda que presentare el día 14 de abril a la 20:00 Horas

Comunicado Oficial de la Disolución de Azrael

 

Vídeo comunicado: https://youtu.be/aGjDyH8XE8I

Manuel Arquellada Ruiz conocido artísticamente bajo el nombre de Maolo, les hago llegar este comunicado.

Siendo el miembro fundador de Azrael, quiero comunicar a todos los medios de prensa, seguidores de la banda, promotoras de espectáculos y a toda la gente que forma parte del mundo del Heavy Metal.

Los miembros Enrique Rosales y JM Salas deciden expulsarme de Azrael, según su comunicado que me hacen llegar las causas son por el confinamiento de la COVID19, ya que resido desde hace 7 años en la comunidad de Castilla la Mancha. La banda decide grabar un vídeo del nuevo tema “Sueños Rotos” cuando diferentes comunidades estaban confinadas y como todos apreciáis en el vídeo, no aparezco por los motivos citados.  Ellos han realizado este vídeo sin ningún tipo de espera ni adaptación para poder estar presente en el videoclip.

Mi decisión como miembro fundador la dejo claro y comunico que es la disolución definitiva de Azrael. Pienso y creo que nadie puede decidir Mi sustitución como miembro fundador no la deciden estas dos personas. Considero que he llevado a la banda a lo más alto, no solo del Heavy Metal español, si no a nivel Internacional.

Como ya comunicaron tres de los miembros de la banda recientemente, Mario Gutiérrez, Javier Saavedra y Marc Riera decidieron dejar la banda por los motivos que cada uno anuncio en sus redes o comunicados realizados por cada uno de ellos. Mi situación es muy diferente, me acusan de no participar en las composiciones y trabajos de lo que iba hacer nuestro noveno álbum

Llevo 30 años, desde reunir a la banda en sus comienzos, como los cambios de músicos que se hayan ocasionado lo he tenido que solucionar yo, promover todas las grabaciones discográficas, gestionar toda la difusión de prensa (no solo nacional, sino Internacional), distribución internacional de la mayoría de nuestros álbumes, la gestión con las agencias de manager que ha tenido la banda en su carrera, me he encargado de promover y organizar eventos o giras para Azrael cuando no disponíamos de agencia, compartiendo y creando las redes sociales, comunicación de prensa, envíos promocionales… Y aun así Tienen el valor de decirme, que no he aportado nada a la banda, ¡Qué pena de no saber el trabajo que no se ve en 30 años de trayectoria!

Estoy trabajando con un nuevo proyecto que presentaré el día 14 de abril a las 20:00 Horas, junto a grandes amigos y que os aseguro que no os dejará indiferentes.

Muchísimas gracias a tod@s y sigo apostando por el Heavy Metal!!!

XAEL – BLOODTIDE RISING ( Review by Varg The Mighty )


 

Today’s review is of American Symphonic Death Metal band Xael’s new album.

This album combines numerous influences to coat an aggressive Death Metal assault in deep symphonic grandeur with progressive hints to finish adding some uniqueness to it.

The first thing that comes to mind is Nile (something obvious, considering that this project is also fronted by Brad Parris), but Septic Flesh seems like a more appropriate comparison, since the cinematic effect it transmits is similar. Other less apparent influences may be Emperor (in the similar use of clear vocals) and even Wardruna (considering the ominous Folk passages).

This album may instantly become a highlight of 2021, thanks to the incredibly dark and complex tracks it includes, such as “As Decreed - The Law of Vuul Athmar” or “Dark World Mirrors”, although no song should be omitted when listening to this instant Symphonic Death Metal classic, which may surely sound incredible if performed with an orchestra.

I recommend this album to fans of Symphonic Death Metal, Folk Metal and Symphonic Metal. My rating is of 10/10.

State Of Mind - Self Titled EP - (Heavy Metal)


 

For fans of Dio, Alice Cooper, Queensyrche

Released February 7, 2021

In 1994, four friends got together and decided they wanted to entertain the world. They decided to name their band 'State Of Mind' ( SOM ) because that is what music is to them, a "State of Mind" . Their influences are old school metal gods such as, Ronnie James Dio , Judas Priest , Black Sabbath , Queensryche , Iron Maiden , Pantera , Led Zeppelin etc. 

The music is hard hitting and described as New Classic Metal. With the flavor of their influences guiding their way. The lyrics are written to describe ones State of Mind in any given situation, and to give those feelings an outlet other than addiction or suicide. They have lost two band members to addiction that resulted in death. RIP Scott and Brett.

They put out their first studio recording in 1995. A six song, self titled cassette recorded on the only ADAT machine in their area at that time. The latest CD was released in 2019 along with a music video released in Dec 2019. They are now composing new music for their second CD which will be titled “ Shattered ”, and working on another music video.

Prison City Brigade - Rough Skeletons - (Rock / Post Punk / Post Hardcore)


 
For fans of Rock / Post Punk / Post Hardcore

Started in 2013 by Eddie Cavanaugh, Prison City Brigade has been making a name for themselves boasting as a “dysfunctional family” for the outcasts, rebellious, and broken. Releasing their first EP, “The Corner Of Debauchery and Nowhere”, in 2015 the band set forth to establish their name across the Chicagoland and surrounding areas going as far as playing the 20th anniversary of “Bowl Bash” at Skatopia in Rutland, OH. This event pushed them further, making them hungrier for more; and in March of 2017 they released their first full length album, “War On Boredom”, which included re-recorded songs from their ep as well as new tracks making a statement and showcasing their punk influence as a whole.


2018 saw even more growth for the band as they evolved in not only their sound with the addition of lead guitarist, Zach Roberts, but their musical reach adding blazing lead guitar riffs as well as melodic vocals showing a maturing sound for the band’s growth. By late August the band released their second full length album, “Trials Of Survival” which capitalized on a concept storyline shadowing the battles of one’s own good and evil waged everyday on a mental plain. The success of this album helped Prison City Brigade walk away with three “Radio Roach Awards” in 2018 for; “Best Punk/Hardcore Band 2018”, “Best Punk/Hardcore Album 2018”, and the “2018 Album Of The Year”.


Spending the majority of 2019 promoting “Trials Of Survival”, the band held onto a secret that they were in the studio vigorously working on a follow up album. Taking elements from both “War On Boredom” and “Trials Of Survival” the band released their first single, “Failure By Design” in November of 2019 and their third, and most acclaimed to date album, “Rough Skeletons” in February 2020. This album has shown a mature sound almost distant from their early beginnings and with the messages in their music they look to expand their reach and showcase their all around “something for everyone” sound and music to further reaches than they have ever dreamed.
