Am Freitag 14.11. spielen wir wie Ihr wisst mit Powerwolf und Majesty in der Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen. Wir haben zu diesem Event extra 2 neue Shirt-Designs für Euch drucken lassen! Aufgrund der vielen Nachfragen haben wir das längst vergriffene “Sednas´s Revenge” Demo-Shirt neu aufgelegt!

Unser Cpt. Carl McGuerkin himself wird euch die druckfrische Ware persönlich am Merchandise-Stand verticken! Ach ja, natürlich gibt es auch von uns POSTER gratis – jedenfalls solange der Vorrat reicht!

Am besten gleich zum EInlass um 19 Uhr vor ort sein, damit auch nichts verpasst.

Vittorio leaves the band, Adrian joins 10.05.2014

We are sad to say that Vito Papotto and Gloryful will go separate ways. This step was necessary regarding the projects and targets of Vito and Gloryful. This was no easy step for us at all. We`d like to thank Vito for the time together, his dedication and friendship. We wish him all the best for the future.


Our new axeman from now on is no one less a figure than Adrian Weiss. Adrian already filled in several times as a live stand in member and played guest guitar solos on „Ocean Blade“ („E Mare, E Libertad“, „All Men To The Arms“). US-born Germany-based artist Adrian Weiss is well known for his solo-activities (Adrian Weiss Band) and his participation in the Guitar Fight Club Festival series. More information about Adrian´s music and projects:


Adrian Weiss


„Ocean Blade“ was released 25th April by Massacre Records. „Ocean Blade“ was mixed by Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, Motörjesus, Asphyx, Witherscape) and mastered by Powerwolfs axeman Charles Greywolf.
