ROX Newsblast 24 October 2020


Temple Of The Fuzz Witch will be releasing their sophomore album titled “Red Tide” on (10/16/2020) through Interstellar Smoke Records. Their first self-titled album was released back in March of 2019 and the second album has been in the works before the first self-titled album was even released.

  Remarks from previous works - “Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, TEMPLE OF THE FUZZ WITCH is everything you might imagine that name implies, and then some.”

 (Billy Goat - Doomed & Stoned)

 Bathsheba - Single: “That single opens the album and those already familiar, with both that song and Temple Of The Fuzz Witch will know that they excel in huge doom laden riffs executed with electricity along with trademark hazy vocals. Alongside those huge riffs, the album takes in more stoner-esque grooves and even some funeral doom vibes but they never lose sight of what they want to achieve and that is to knock the listener sideways with the gargantuan sound of their riffs.”

(Outlaws of the Sun)

Red Tide is a departure from the previous sound of the debut self-titled album, Red Tide takes on a different tone, its more melodic, yet heavier in it’s own way that the first debut album. The lyrical content is much more mature and serious on Red Tide. The songs are much more clear and controversial with the message of each song. Each song displays a purpose with a passion behind the. Temple Of The Fuzz Witch seems to have found their own sound rather than fitting into the normal “Doom” lyrical content. The band has branched out and tried new things with Red Tide, yet they still have retained some of the sounds and feeling from the first self-titled album. In closing Red Tide is something worth a spin to listen to, you may be surprised on what you find and feel.

Be sure to stay aware of the release on (10/16/2020) and stay connected!

Following the success of the 2019 Ep, Veritas has been hard at work putting together this collection of 14 classic sounding hard rock/metal songs.

Influences for the Album: Queensryche, Fates Warning, Crimson Glory
Track Suggestions: Love and Burn, Starlight, Far Away, Frail

  In 2012, Greg Wenk started looking for members and decided on Veritas, which means truth, when looking for ideas. Deciding it needed a logo to make it more recognizable, he found the awen symbol which means creativity. Already having about 20 song ideas, he found original drummer Adam Hartley after a few months of searching and auditions. They began working on songs and auditioning for the remaining members. After many months of auditions, they found Geno Alberico through an ad and realized they had a common vision and welcomed him into the band. The trio continued working on songs and searching for the perfect singer to compliment the music. After many months of searching, Geno mentioned he knew a great vocalist. The only catch was he lived several states away. After sending him a few tracks and hearing what he could do, they decided to move forward with Denny Anthony on vocals. Veritas began working on completing songs by sending tracks back and forth and began recording what would be an EP for the first release. Unfortunately, Adam decided to leave the band for personal reasons, and the search was on for another drummer. Denny suggested using Mark Zonder for the drums since he had worked with him on a previous project. Denny contacted him and he agreed to record the drums.

  As the EP neared completion in 2019, they began sending out samples to create interest in the band and get people familiar with the music. The songs were an instant hit and were played on several internet radio stations including Rock Rage Radio (USA) and Mercury radio (Greece). People started wanting more info about the band and where to get the Ep. The problem was it was still in the mixing/mastering phase and the band was struggling to catch up with demand. Forgotten Scroll set up a topic page to keep new fans of the band informed about the progress and availabillty of the EP. Once it was released it received many great reviews comparing it to the sound of early Queensryche, Fates Warning, and Dream Theater. 
The band continued writing music and focused on completing their first full length cd. They also needed a better way to release their cd and make it more easily available worldwide. They began shopping the music around to various distribution companies with the ability to get their music in stores around the globe. After talks with several companies, they found a company with a common vision and the connections to make it happen. In March of 2020, Veritas signed a deal with Amplified for worldwide distribution of their first full length cd in physical and digital formats. The cd has 14 tracks and was mixed by Daryl Bolicek at Wild Horse Recording in Minnesota and mastered by Thomas Juth at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Sweden. The cd released on August 28th, 2020 worldwide and has already received great reviews from Germany, Sweden, USA, Poland.

LION'S SHARE releases new single and lyric video “Aim Higher”.

Swedish heavy metal band LION'S SHARE has made a new song available on streaming services and digital service providers today, October 16th.

Lyric video for “Aim Higher” -
Player for "Aim Higher":

"In these strange days of Covid-19, we feel the time is right to give you a song with a positive touch. This is a song about you deciding your own destiny and that you can achieve whatever you want if you never give up, never take shit and believe in yourself," says LION'S SHARE singer Nils Patrik Johansson.
In late 2018, LION'S SHARE released a new five-track EP, plus its complete catalog - remastered with new artwork - on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The band have since released a few more digital singles, some of which will and some of which won't end up on the forthcoming full-length album.
LION'S SHARE guitarist Lars Chriss says: "We had big plans for 2020, with a new album and everything. We had just done our first couple of live shows in many years this past March in Germany when the Covid-19 put stop to it all." 
Both Johansson and Chriss remark that they have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.
The LION’S SHARE catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISS, Megadeth, King Diamond, HammerFall, Symphony X, Chimaira, Therion, Yngwie Malmsteen band, Candlemass, etc.  Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (Arch Enemy, OpethSymphony X, Amon Amarth) - Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (Roxette, Europe, Glenn Hughes etc).

LION'S SHARE band have toured with bands like Motörhead, Manowar, DIO, Saxon, Iced Earth, Nevermore, U.D.O. (ex-Accept), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and have played many of the major rock and metal festivals.

 Take A Glimpse Into Stark Reality With Abandoned Souls’ Video For “Blinding Darkness”

L-R: Derek De Kort (Guitar) | James Todd (Vocals) | Tom Dobrentey (Drums) | Reagan Thorne (Bass) 

Canada’s Abandoned Souls released their powerful and emotional single “Blinding Darkness” on October 9, 2020 and now to complement it they are releasing a music video for it.

While most of the band's music comes from a personal place, “Blinding Darkness” is especially meaningful to the band. It was written shortly after vocalist James Todd went through the heartbreaking experience of losing his mother. This is the first new music they have released since the last EP in 2017. The band explains the writing process for the single in their own words:

“We started tracking for Blinding Darkness towards the end of 2019. Then in early 2020 as we are all aware, the world changed. That put a huge wrench in our plans so, like everyone we had to adapt. We already had drums and bass tracked for Blinding Darkness. Derek recorded all his guitars at his home and sent me the tracks to re-amp thru his amp here at the studio. I also recorded all the vocals during the pandemic shutdown. Luckily, I own the studio and had lots of time to mix and refine the song during this time. It is the first release from the new Foundation Studio and we are super excited for everyone to hear it!”

Heavy and aggressive but not sacrificing melody, Abandoned Souls have been honing their craft since they started jamming as friends over a decade ago. Staying true to their sound, the video is uplifting and heavy and puts a positive spin on the dark subject matter. 

Citing that it has been a long road to get to the point where they are at, Abandoned Souls is hoping the release of this single will tide fans over until the world gets back to a sense of normalcy and shows can begin again.

Hard rock n' roll fans will take a liking to Abandoned Souls, especially fans of Godsmack, Three Days Grace, and Alice in Chains.

The video for “Blinding Darkness” can be viewed at the following link on YouTube.

The single is available for stream on Spotify and download on Apple Music.

For more info:


There is power in a band’s name, like a magic spell, announcing to the world what they are and what they stand for. ABANDONED SOULS summons up images of Milton's ‘Paradise Lost’, heroic outcasts rising up against impossible odds, to establish their own unique identity.

As vocalist James Todd explains: 

 “The name Abandoned Souls is in reference to all those people out there that have at one time or another felt like the outcast. That common bond and love for this music are what brings all of us Abandoned Souls together.” 

Having played together for years, the bonds that hold ABANDONED SOULS together are... to paraphrase the mighty Judas Priest…Canadian Steel! Inspired by Alter Bridge, Alice In Chains, Metallica, Judas Priest, Godsmack, and Kings X, Todd describes Abandoned Souls’ sound as ‘powerful, heavy, rhythmic, melodic, personal.’ 

Dwarrowdelf Records are delighted to announce the release of the highly anticipated new album:- ACHERONTIA STYX - SHADOW AND FLAME

Adam Ashbridge - Lead Guitar, Arrangements and Production 

Grant Crossan - Lead Vocals and Arrangements

 Paul Taylor - Lead Vocals, Bass Guitar and Production 

Jake Burden-Stokoe - Lead Vocals and Drums

Hailing from Northern England, Acherontia Styx brings multiple creative influences to the table. Their core sound is steeped in 90s Groove and Death Metal, with individual members bringing a host of external flavors into the mix, including PROG, GRIND and FUNK. F or fans of Arch Enemy, The Haunted, Soilwork, Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God.

The band have a huge list of accolades, including Metal Devastation Radio Band Of The Month, Ripper Radio Band Of The Month, Mayhem Radio Song Of The Week and a Radio Wigwam Rock Song Of The Year Nomination. They have also been included on compilations by Metal Coffee, Sick Muzik and a host of local releases, with the album already receiving numerous 5 star reviews from worldwide press and international radio and podcast play.

In addition to our previous album press release, we wish to make our supporters aware of the diversity that the band possesses.

Attached are two further tracks for your attention.


This brutal slice of OSDM sees drummer Jake Burden take over on main vocals, with bassist Paul providing backing. A relentless onslaught of a song shows the true depth of talent in Acherontia Styx, with Jakes ferocious traditional death growl being equal in impact to those sung by lead vocalist Grant. Paul provides his signature black metal screams as a backing vocal harmony.


This slow grinding track features a dual vocal attack from lead vocalist Grant Crossan and Bassist Paul Taylor, once again showcasing the depth of talent on offer in the band. Paul trades his signature black metal howl for low guttural vocals that provide a stunning harmony with Grants style.

The full album is included HERE including the highly acclaimed "Scorned" and "Eyes Of Glass" and the stand out track from he release "As Above So Below". All tracks are suitable for pre watershed play.
The album is available on all major streaming and download sites, with a physical release scheduled to coincide with the eventual return of live music performances.

We are requesting playlist submission for both audio and video materials, reviews and interviews.

Dwarrowdelf Records hereby authorizes all recipients full use of the materials included in the Press Drive where applicable to promote the release. All materials are protected under international copyright law.

As always we appreciate the constant support of all those people and organisations who have promoted our releases so far, and look forward to continuing our prosperous relationships together.
