HELLSPIKE "Dynasties of Decay" album details.

Only a year after their debut saw the light of day, the Portuguese speed/thrashers HELLSPIKE strike back with their sophomore album. "Dynasties of Decay" will be out on November 19th, together with the new releases of KÖMMAND, HOME STYLE SURGERY, GRAVETY and IN AEVUM AGERE, as well as "Compendium of Metal Vol. 14" compilation. These veterans of the Lisbon metal scene are influenced by the NWOBHM sound, but most of all by the German speed/thrash bands from the mid '80s. Their songs are full of relentless and furious riffs, but also melody, expressive guitar harmonies, creative arrangements, inspired solos and choruses that will easily stay in your head. Don't hesitate to give them a listen if you're into IRON ANGEL, NECRONOMICON, SODOM, old RUNNING WILD, ANGEL DUST, GRAVE DIGGER, WARRANT (Ger.), VIOLENT FORCE, MINOTAUR, LIVING DEATH, JUDAS PRIEST and M.A.R.S.!

Check out a brand new track "They Live" here and a lyric video for "Ruthless Invasion" here.

The aforementioned songs plus "Lost Reality" are available for streaming from the player on the HELLSPIKE page. Here's the full album track list:

1. Dynasties of Decay
2. They Live
3. Gone to Waste
4. Hegemony Defied
5. Divide to Rule
6. On Through the Times
7. Ruthless Invasion

Until Sunday, November 21st, 11:00 PM Central European Time (UTC+1), you can order this CD from our SHOP page with German shipping rates (unless you live in Italy, in which case Italian shipping rates apply and your order will be shipped from here), which are especially convenient for orders from Germany and from outside of Europe, as well as for sending many more items for the same low postage, for example the bundle with the other four new releases and "Compendium of Metal Vol. 14". For a limited time, you can also purchase it in a bundle with the band's previous album "Lords of War". The shipping from Germany is by default as priority mail, except for to USA, where items are currently sent to from there via ocean freight that can take even 2 months. After this date, we will change the shipping rates back to the higher Italian ones (to which you can always add the priority mail option all over the world).

You can also pre-order the album as digital download (in lossless formats) from our Bandcamp page. It will be distributed digitally as well and made available from iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Music, Spotify and other retailers and services.
