"Compendium of Metal Vol. 14" and 2021 release plan.

The second year of the pandemic was not much different for us than the first one - apart from no festivals and shows (after February 2020), also this year we haven't had any releases until late autumn. Initially we planned to set the release date to Halloween again, but the unexpected announcement of Keep It True (Rising) festival on November 19th/20th changed those plans - we decided to make it the new release date. If all goes well, it will be our first festival after 21 months - and in the same hall in Würzburg as the last one we attended (Metal Assault). This is where and when our next compilation CD will be out, together with other 5 releases again.

"Compendium of Metal Vol. 14" features 12 songs of 11 bands. The first 5 songs are by bands whose albums we are going to release in November, including two newly signed acts: HOME STYLE SURGERY (technical thrashers from Finland, who are featured here with an exclusive song) and GRAVETY (epic heavy metal from Germany) as well as bands we've worked with before: IN AEVUM AGERE, HELLSPIKE and KÖMMAND who are featured here with their brand new songs. It contains also songs by IGNITOR (from their self-released "Live... Before the Plague" CD), LEGIONEM (from the limited "One in Desolation Four in Malediction" split CD on Uncreation Records), ARKHAM WITCH (a previously unreleased song from their upcoming EP "Three Bladed Doom") and THE LAMP OF THOTH (a new song, previously available only to their own Bandcamp subscribers on "The Scream Sessions Demos"). Only 3 tracks (of CHAINBREÄKER, LEGIONEM and VOMIT DIVISION) come from our 2020 releases.

Check the complete track list and more info about "Compendium of Metal Vol. 14" on the page of this release.

The CD, released with an informative 6-page booklet and packed with old school metal in various styles (with playing time of 71 minutes), will cost 6,00 Euro or 4,00 Euro if you order it with other items in our shop - the pre-order will start on November 8th, when we'll reveal all details about the other 5 releases. The compilation is already available for pre-order as digital download from our Bandcamp page for 4,00 Euro and includes the complete CD layout (booklet, inlay card, CD label print).

We put only 8 songs for streaming in the Bandcamp player, but you can preview all 12 tracks (about 40-second excerpts) from the album trailer/promo clip on YouTube.
