NIGHT LEGION Is The New Power Metal Project For STU MARSHALL

Artist: 
NIGHT LEGION, the new high energy Australian power metal band led by guitarist / producer Stu "The Hammer" Marshall (Dungeon / Empires of Eden / Death Dealer / Blasted to Static) has announced the addition of Vo Simpson as their new lead vocalist.
Stu Marshall has checked in with the following comment:
During the writing of our upcoming debut album, the band went through some sudden personnel changes. Moving forward, I am very pleased to announce my amazing friend Vo Simpson, as the new lead vocalist for the band. Just think Halford meets old school Tate and you have an idea of where Vo's vocal abilities can be filed under. We have been long time friends and to have vocals that scream like Vo's is a dream to write heavy riffs for. The band is psyched for the new upcoming debut album and we are currently working toward securing a worldwide release via an as yet determined label during 2017.
Forged from the fires of internationally acclaimed metal acts Empires of Eden, Death Dealer, Blasted To Static, Darker Half and Aussie metal royalty Dungeon, Night Legion unleashes razor-sharp power metal to make your ears bleed.
Night Legion, is the latest creation of guitarist / producer Stu "The Hammer" Marshall, known as the mastermind of the all star metal project Empires of Eden, stage right guitarist in heavy metal super group Death Dealer alongside six string legend and partner Ross the Boss (Manowar co-founder) and the ripping axeman in shred metal newcomers Blasted to Static fronted by iconic vocalist Jeff Martin (the legendary voice of Racer X).
In Night Legion, Marshall reunites with bassist Glenn Williams, a crowd favourite on Dungeon’s large-scale tours and drummer Clay T, of Blasted To Static fame. Joining them front and center is screaming lead vocalist Vo Simpson who also plays in Sydney thrashers Darker Half.
With an uncompromising and aggressive style that echoes Rob Halford's trademark microphone meltdowns, Simpson's voice cuts a blazing trail of destruction that is second to none.
Night Legion has recently begun work on recording their debut, slated for a 2017 release, and is in the early stages of the search for a future label who will offer the most suitable home for the album. This unconquerable touring animal also has its sights on Japan, Europe and possibly Australia in early to mid-2017.

LORD Announces New Release 'The Dungeon Era' Box Set

Artist: 
 
LORD: ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE 'THE DUNGEON ERA' BOX SET
 
Australian melodic metal masters LORD have announced their latest box set release 'The Dungeon Era' comprising of all 4 official Dungeon albums (Resurrection, A Rise To Power, One Step Beyond and Pariah) rerecorded with the current band and modern production.
 
The release is also accompanied by a USB 'all access' pass packed with retrospective Dungeon nostalgia as well as digital versions of the re-recordings and remix/remasters of the original releases.
Slated to be released on November 1 to coincide with their appearance at the 'Steel Assassins True Metal Festival' in Sydney, the band has announced exclusive pre-orders for fans through their online webstore.
 
Commented by Lord Tim: "From a business point of view, we are doing this to regain control of our rights and make sure the writers of these great songs get their well-deserved time in the spotlight. Due to labels folding or not really getting behind these albums the first time, a lot of this material was lost in the background noise. This release gives us the opportunity to give these songs a second chance, and hopefully for the ex-Dungeon members who wrote a lot of this material to see something back for all of their amazing work. From an artistic point of view, while we've been proud of everything we've ever done and it was the best we
could do at the time, there was always a desire to hear this done not just "as good as we could do" but "exactly as we always imagined it." Due to budget or technology restraints, there was always a level of compromise. This release answers the question: "What if it wasn't like that?"
And from a continuity point of view, we really consider Dungeon to be the first era of the band we're currently calling LORD. We still play the Dungeon back-catalogue live, and now with this being Dungeon's 25th anniversary, it was a good opportunity to expose new fans to these awesome old songs, and formally unite both
eras of the band."
 
All pre-orders will also receive an exclusive and limited edition t-shirt, patch and sticker.
