Ghost Love Announce Debut New Album

“Mourners Disco” is the lead single from Ghost Love’s first self-produced upcoming album Mourners Disco. Vocalist David Rancourt says: “The song deals with the pain of loss and grief after my mother passed away but also the desire to transcend the pain and to keep dancing and celebrating her life through it. She supported me when I came out as queer and showed me to navigate difficult times in my life so really the song is a tribute to her strength and guidance. It also speaks to the desire to sometimes hold on to the pain or grief as it is the only feeling that sometimes reminds us of the person that we have lost.”

Spanish Power Metal band NORWALD drop releases long awaited “THE SPARK OF FREEDOM” EP and Video!

“The Spark of Freedom” is Norwald’s first EP and second studio work. It explains why in Norwald they say “Fetharlos” to yield courage, the tale behind the word. This EP takes the second part of the book and re-tells the story in a musical way, taking the essence from the way of composing of original soundtracks. “The Spark of Freedom” mixes various heavy metal styles to tell the legend through music: power metal riffs and melodic vocal lines to create a happy atmosphere when needed, and more extreme (death/black metal) styles to show the chaos against the other parts. Fast guitars, melodic lines, growling’s and orchestration to place all the elements of the story that is being told, with a neoclassical twist in various points.
