Formed by an all-star cast of scene veterans, heavy metal force SUMERLANDS burst out of the gates with a fully-formed sound on their Guardian demo in 2014. The band’s sound is one that calls to mind the most learned heavy metal ancestors and the most forward-thinking newcomers: one that sounds old but it feels new. In its short existence, the band has already garnered widespread praise from the likes of Sputnik Music, No Clean Singing, and Pitchfork, the latter of which stated that “Sumerlands sound like Cirith Ungol and every lost 80s American power metal band on steroids of steel, getting swole and flexing their might.”
Now, SUMERLANDS are set to explode with their incredible self-titled debut album of classic heavy metal. Inspired by the timeless guitar-driven sound of the 70’s & 80’s, SUMERLANDS feature former Hour of 13 / Atlantean Kodex vocalist Phil Swanson and renowned producer Arthur Rizk (Inquisition, Power Trip, Pissgrave) on guitars and behind the boards! Powerful guitar riffs and galloping rhythms meld flawlessly together with soaring vocals and pristine production to create strong, hook-filled, moody anthems. This is a new wave of American Heavy Metal at its finest!
Inspired by the epic fantasy of Michael Moorcock and savage, pre-Christian war sagas comes ETERNAL CHAMPION, an epic heavy metal band forged in the siege-fires of Austin, Texas, featuring members of Iron Age and Graven Rite, Power Trip, Cruxiter and Hammerwhore and others, and carrying on in the heroic tradition of Manilla Road, Warlord, Omen, Brocas Helm, Cirith Ungol, Metal Church, Griffin, Liege Lord, etc.
Legendry is an epic heavy metal band from Pittsburgh, PA. Their music is heavily influenced by early 80s bands such as Manilla Road, Omen, and Cirith Ungol, along with 70s prog such as Wishbone Ash and Jethro Tull. All lyrical content revolves around the works of Robert E. Howard, original fantasy themes, and historical accounts.
