Coming soon from Arkeyn Steel, the first one is Cyperus, containing the band’s 86 demo plus their unreleased 88 LP-Tape “Blow It Out Your Ass”, a total of over 70’mins of strong US Power metal!
As with all Arkeyn Steel releases, it features a 16-pages full color booklet, digital remaster, many unreleased pics, bio and of course great manufactured product.
The next Arkeyn Steel release will be the long awaited “Circles and Butterflies” by The Last Things, one of the best underground and now very rare prog metal albums.
For those who don’t know, The Last Things rose from the ashes of Blackkout. Arkeyn Steel managed to get a bold of 5 unreleased songs (two by The Last Things and three by Blackkout). We are now racing against time to create a special die-hard edition for the first copies that Blackkout fans will surely love. This released is scheduled for a mid-June release.
The amazing Christian band Battalion from Wisconsin, US is the new addition to the Arkeyn Steel roster. Battalion released in 1994 their first and only album “Runaway” on the indie label Moonlite and is quite hard to acquire now. With the aid of their singer Brad Lundstrom, Arkeyn Steel unearthed five unreleased songs recorded shortly before the band’s demise and tons of live material to compile a full audio CD featuring 16-pages full color booklet, digital remaster, many unreleased pics, bio and a brilliant new cover artwork represented from Rainer Kalwitz (Blackkout, Wardrum, Fatal Morgana, Katagory V and many more). Fans of Queensryche, Screamer, Sacred Warrior, Fifth Angel and Heir Apparent rejoice!
