Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the anticipated ECLIPSE fourth studio album entitled “Bleed and Scream” on August 24th in Europe and August 28th in North America.
“Bleed and Scream” marks the return from the Swedish Hard Rockers 4 years after the acclaimed album “Are You Ready to Rock”, which gained the band a solid reputation and a steady following, thanks also to their live appearances which culminated with dates as opening act for Deep Purple and a Firefest show in 2009.
Besides this, Eclipse singer Erik Martensson has been busy producing and writing a number of successful songs and records for such artists as: W.E.T, Toby Hitchcock, Giant, Jimi Jamison just to name a few. Erik and Eclipse guitarist Magnus Henriksson also wrote the song “Brothers in Arms” (originally an Eclipse-track) which was voted as # 1 for best song of the year in Melodicrock.com awards for 2009.
In 2011 Eclipse teamed up again to write what was to become their latest effort “Bleed and Scream”. The bar was set high and the initial goal was to top their latest album. “We knew we had to do everything better on this album. If we couldn’t have achieved that we never would have released it! But boy did it turn out well! When it was taking shape we realized this was to be a monster of an album”, says guitarist Magnus Henriksson.
“With Eclipse we never think of what other people want or expect from us. We write for ourselves and make the music we love to listen to. If I’d think of a perfect album this is how it will sound! And once the album was written the recording process went pretty smooth as we knew exactly what goal we aimed for. I’d say it’s our own pimped version of the classic hard rock we grew up listening to”, adds guitarist/singer Erik Martensson.
“Every song has qualities as a single. Erik´s vocals are way better than ever. The guitar-sound is just awesome! The whole production is just in your face. It has something for everyone in it! We worked so hard at making this record that it drove us nearly nuts and made us wanna scream, but now it’s your turn to bleed & scream”, concludes Magnus.
“Bleed and Scream” track listing includes: Wake Me Up; Bleed And Scream; Ain’t Dead Yet; Battlegrounds; A Bitter Taste; Falling Down; S.O.S.; Take Back The Fear; The Unspoken Heroes; About To Break; After The End Of The World.
The first single “Bleed And Scream” will be exclusively distributed in Sweden through Sweden Rock Magazine in the issue that will hit the streets on July 17th. This special release will include two exclusive bonus tracks (unavailable elsewhere) : “Come Hell or High Water” and “Into The Fire”.

Frontiers Records is pleased to launch of one the hottest albums in a long time, ECLIPSE’s third studio release entitled “Are You Ready To Rock” on October 10th 2008.
Formed in Stockholm in 1999 by the amazingly talented singer Erik Mårtensson, Eclipse soon landed a deal with the English-based “Z” label, impressed with the material the band demoed. In order to produce what was to become the first Eclipse album “The Truth & a Little More”, Mårtensson completed the line-up with Magnus Henriksson on lead guitar and Anders Berlin on drums and keyboards.
Determined to have a better impact and marketing for their music, Erik and the guys signed in 2003 a recording deal with Frontiers Records who released the band’s following album “Second To None”, which soon became a fan’s favorite in the melodic rock audience.
Due to line-up changes again, Eclipse took a couple of years off and it wouldn’t be until early 2007 before Erik Mårtensson & Magnus Henriksson (the surviving members of the band) started writing for a new album. Their vision this time was to go for a more straightforward, classic and riff oriented Hard Rock style and welcomed in the lineup the new members Robert Bäck on drums and Johan Berlin on keyboards.
“On the new release we have moved a bit from the AOR-sound towards a little harder, rougher and straight Classic Hard Rock”, says Magnus Henriksson. “With a better sound, better songs and a more linear production, but still with the distinct ECLIPSE sound remaining intact with catchy melodies and big melodic choruses. We have worked on developing better and more intricate guitar-riffs and arrangements. We took off where we left with “Always Standing” from “Second to None”.
The resulting album “Are You Ready To Rock” is by far Eclipse best release ever and an absolute monster of an album which is guaranteed to please every Whitesnake, Europe and Talisman fan around ! “One could describe the ECLIPSE-sound as music with very strong melodies that could work in every arrangement, stripped down to acoustic versions” adds Erik Mårtensson, “but we have chosen to wear it with heavy clothes! In few words: Timeless melodies mixed with up-to-date production with heavy guitars and powerful vocals”.
Final tracklisting of “Are You Ready To Rock” includes:
They are ready… are you?
