Arkeyn Steel Records is proud to announce a new series (Under the sub-name “Rising Force”) of releases that will feature new bands of today. We strongly believe that the next big Metal Masters are somewhere around us so we hand-pick selected new and bands giving them the chance to deliver some Steel to the masses. The first band that makes the debut release of this new series is DRAGONSCLAW from Sydney, Australia. Their first album "Prophecy" will be out on December 2011. Forged in the established traditions of Heavy Metal, the band delivers a sonic alloy of aggressive yet catchy song writing, soaring vocals, powerful melodies and blazing guitar solos combined with symphonic orchestration. This is a mix of Judas Priest, Jag Panzer, Riot, Helstar, Symphony X, early Kamelot, you can also add some Malmsteen (Rising Force), some Ring Of Fire and some Eden's Curse and Empires Of Eden in order to shape in to your mind the sound-background and the influences of those Australians. You should definitely check Ben Thomas, an excellent shredder and Gilles Lavery one of the best new Metal singers of today, both members of DRAGONSCLAW. In the album you can also hear two special guests singing: Alessandro Del Vecchio (Edge Of Forever, Eden’s Curse, Glenn Hughes, Ian Paice and James LaBrie) and Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden, Wolfsbane). Watch out for this debut: Ten songs of pounding and powerful Steel that will blow your mind away. Don't miss this album for anything.
