LEAH 'The Quest' Details Revealed

Artist: 
Friday, October 5, 2018
Categories: 
 
The Celtic metal songstress LEAH will release her new album "The Quest" on October 5th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.
 
The album was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Evergrey] and musicians on the album includes Troy Donockley [Nightwish], Timo Somers [Delain], Chen Balbus [Orphaned Land], Barend Courbois [Blind Guardian] and Sander Zoer [ex. Delain].
 
With a strong Celtic & Fantasy connection, some prog rock elements, ethereal ambiance, combined with traditional Symphonic Metal elements, this is an album LEAH is very proud to present.
 
The concept for "The Quest" is very simple: we're all on a journey, and sometimes we lose our way. There are adventures, wildernesses, treasures, monsters, looters, people out to send us down the wrong path. Through it all, we must grow in wisdom and experience, find our compass once again and find our way back to the true path in order to reach our full potential: our destiny.

Inner Wound Recordings are proud to announce the signing of POWER QUEST, one of the premiere melodic power metal bands in the world, to the label. The band will hit the studio in April and the new album is scheduled to be released in October.
 
Known for their catchy, uplifting sound and superb live shows, PQ are back to deliver their 6th album in conjunction with Inner Wound. Having toured with the likes of Helloween, Angra, Freedom Call and Symphony X to name but a few, the band are ready to take things to the next level.
 
Steve Williams of Power Quest comments:
 
I'm really pleased to have sealed the deal with Emil and Inner Wound for the release of the next PQ opus. We were in discussions for a couple of months, during which time the salient points of the deal were already agreed before I recently flew to Gothenburg to sign the agreement in person. In this age of faceless business it was refreshing to do things the old fashioned way. I'm really excited about this collaboration and we have a lot of cool things planned for the next 12 months.
 
Emil Westerdahl of Inner Wound Recordings comments:
 
It's a true pleasure to announce the signing of POWER QUEST to the label. During the past few months that Steve and I have been in contact it's become clear that we share the same vision for the band and that POWER QUEST and Inner Wound is a perfect fit. I am really excited about the cooperation and also confident that together we'll be able to take POWER QUEST to the next level.

Bio:
Axenstar was formed as a metal cover band in 1998 under the name Powerage, but shortly switched name to Axenstar and started to write their own material. In October 2002 the debut album “Perpetual Twilight” was released on the Spanish label Arise Records. The album got really good reviews all over the world and Axenstar got the chance to play at Motala Metal Festival, the biggest gig so far in their career.
 
The second album “Far From Heaven” was recorded during May of 2003 and just about a week after the recordings were done Axenstar played at the mighty Sweden Rock Festival, which was a great experience for the band. In January 2004 the opportunity was given to go ahead on their first European Tour as the opening act to Falconer.
 
The third album “The Inquisition” saw the light of day in 2005, and after that Axenstar signed with Massacre Records and released their fourth album "The Final Requiem".
 
In June 2007 Axenstar did three shows in Sweden together with Nocturnal Rites. After that some line-up changes took place and the band started to work on their next album "Aftermath" that was released in 2011. After the album was released Axenstar did a headline tour of the UK, and played at various clubs and festivals around Sweden.
 
The band then felt it was time to step up the game, and wrote and recorded what could be the best Axenstaralbum so far, called "Where Dreams Are Forgotten". A deal was inked with the Swedish label Inner Wound Recordings, and the album is scheduled to be released November 28th in Europe and December 2nd in North America.
 
"Where Dreams Are Forgotten" is a perfect mix of melody and power. The strong songwriting, musicianship as well as the powerful production made at Studio Underground will for sure be loved by the fans of melodic metal.

MINDMAZE Signs With Inner Wound Recordings

Artist: 
Friday, October 24, 2014
Categories: 

Inner Wound Recordings are proud to announce the signing of the US progressive power metal band MindMaze to the label. Their new album "Back From The Edge" will be released on October 24st in Europe and October 28th in North America.

Despite nearly unanimous praise for the songwriting on their debut album "Mask of Lies", the band has strived harder than ever to craft amazing songs filled with first-class musicianship, memorable hooks, and powerful melodies and riffs. The new album sees the band moving further towards forging a strong identity rather than borrowing little bits and pieces from all over their map of influences.

Mike LePond [Symphony X] performs bass on all tracks on "Back From The Edge". The artwork was created by Carl-Andre Beckston [Seventh Wonder, Harem Scarem, Brazen Abbot]. Legendary Stratovarius keyboardist Jens Johansson lends an expectedly awesome solo and harmony to the progressively-tinged track "Moment of Flight".

"Back From The Edge" track listing:
01. Back from the Edge
02. Through the Open Door
03. Moment of Flight
04. Dreamwalker
05. The Machine Stops
06. Consequence of Choice
07. End of Eternity
08. Onward (Destiny Calls II)

"Back From The Edge" can be pre-ordered at the Inner Wound Store: http://www.innerwound.bigcartel.com
