Today HART released their debut album entitled “The Conqueror” digitally, and announced that the CD version will release 3 weeks later on September 25th.
The CD version contains 2 additional songs, full CD booklet with all lyrics, artwork and style paying homage to the early 80s, and will also be available hand-signed through the official website, www.HART-rock.com
Norway’s HART, consists of ex-SEKS singer Rock Hart and Beautiful Beast’s Julian Angel on lead guitar, as well as newly appointed member, ex-SEKS lead guitarist Steen Larsen. Originally titled “Neon”, the album’s name was changed to “The Conqueror” after Hart felt the name did not match the content.

When Germany’s epic melodic metallers ORDEN OGAN will release their new album “To The End” on October 26th, two of the featured songs will be quite familiar for the fans, because the band decided to re-record “Angels War” and “Mystic Symphony” (both part of their live set for many years but never released on an official album).
Vocalist/guitarist Seeb Levermann explains:
“It was an easy decision to have both tracks featured on an official ORDEN OGAN album finally. “The Mystic Symphony” is from one of our very early demos, while “Angels War” was part of our self-released “Testimonium a.d.” recording from 2004. Since eight years now, both songs are part of our live set because the reactions have always been very good. And of course fans ever since kept asking where they could get these tracks. When we started working on “To The End”, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to “legitimize” the two songs and make them a part of the new album”.
The cover artwork for “To The End” was again created by legendary artist Andreas Marschall.
„We’ve already worked with Andreas for our albums „Vale” and „Easton Hope“ – and for sure we would like to continue working with him in the future.
Andreas Marschall’s artworks very well fit with ORDEN OGAN, because we want everything to be handmade and real. Andreas gives the same attention to details as we do in the production. Therefore a digitally created cover artwork is not what we are looking for – even if it would save costs.
Marschall is a passionate and exceptionally talented artist who was able to capture the mood and atmosphere we had in mind for “To The End“ – just like he did many time before in the past, with acts like Blind Guardian, In Flames or Running Wild”, Seeb explains.

A busy week for gothic orchestral metallers Hanging Doll sees them release “The Sacred & Profane” on 3rd September 2012 on Rocksector Records, whilst making the song “Dark Narcissus (The Forest)” available immediately for free mp3 download. A new video featuring the title track from the album has also been made available featuring a combination of live footage & studio sessions, meanwhile Powerplay magazine have recognized the band with a double-page feature in the September issue out now.
Critical praise has been forthcoming not least from Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer who describes the album as “Bold, epic & inventive with Sally’s glorious voice leading the charge.. this is superlative gothic heaviness with brains, balls & bags of ideas”
The first video, “Carnival Of Sin” released earlier this year has attracted in excess of 13,000 views on Youtube & whilst the shorter catchy side of the compositions is shown there, the new video reveals some of the deeper, darker, progressive elements of the album.
2012 has been a year of high points with Hanging Doll already playing as special guests with legendary former-UFO & Scorpions guitarist Michael Schenker, visiting France, Austria & Czech Republic on that tour. Looking ahead they play a showcase event on 23rd November at London Underworld, with German metallers Mono Inc. & on 15th December the band returns to Manchester, playing at Moho Live in Rocksector’s “Winter Fuel” showcase – more details to come.
“The Sacred & Profane” is released today (3rd September) & is available to buy now on CD at online stores such as Play.com, Amazon.co.uk & HMV.com, & to download at iTunes.
