Those who know us, know what they will get with „Reckoning Day“: Pounding drums, heavy riffs and melodic leads, reinforced with vigorous Power Metal vocals with balls and a transparent but also very powerful production by V.O. Pulver (Gurd, Poltergeist, Destruction).
On the second half of the album, we integrated a concept called “The Burgundian Wars” which is based on the historical novel “Der Löwe von Burgund” by our keyboarder Thomas Vaucher.
The album will be published via Pure Steel Records.
