+++ New Releases of MERCURY FALLING and DAWN OF DESTINY +++
Two exiting releases are just around the corner on 4th May on the Axxis Label Phonotraxx Publishing:The Progressiv-Metaler of MERCURY FALLING present their new Album „Into the Void“ and DAWN OF DESTINY will release their 4th album „Praying to the World”.
Since 15 years, MERCURY FALLING dedicated themselves in progressive power metal and catchy melodic rock. Founded by the brothers Tobias (guitar) and Daniel Galmarini (Keyboard) and reinforced by Michael Pope (vocals), Paul Quarter (bass) and Maicel Panitz (drums) the group starts from Fulda.
With a first place in a junior competition MERCURY FALLING was able to produce their first demo "Impression of a Dream" and get the support of established colleagues such as Norman Meiritz (Avantasia) or Edguy guitarist Jens Ludwig for their first studio album "Panta Rhei". Mercury Falling represents mid-tempo tracks where songwriting and voice arrangements are clearly in the foreground.
The forefathers of heavy metal Metallica and Iron Maiden cannot be denied in their music, but also bands like Dream Theater or Symphony X. 2006 Metal Hammer named the album "Panta Rhei" demo of the month in the division "Heroes of Tomorrow". It was followed by the album "Human Nature", led by Piet Sielck (Iron Savior) in Hamburgs Hammer Studios. The final touch of details to the songs was done by Andy Van Dette at the Master Disk Studios in New York who also refined productions by Bruce Dickinson, WASP and Kid Rock. On 04th May this year now, "Into the Void", the fourth album of the group will be released.
Fans can look forward to good quality and new listening experience. The Co-Production for guitar, bass and drums was done by Jens Ludwig (Edguy). Piet Sielck (Iron Savior, Savage Circus) agreed again to record the vocals and to mix the CD in Hamburg. And again Andy Van Dette in the Master Disk Studios in New York was responsible for the mastering. As guest musician you can hear Oliver Palotai (Kamelot, Doro), Jens Ludwig (Edguy), Piet Sielck (Iron Savior, Savage Circus).
