Metal Church "Generation Nothing" marks the bands 10th full length studio release and boasts the return to the band's classic metal sound, says founding member Kurdt Vanderhoof, "It has elements of both the first album and the "The Dark", but still embraces the new sound of the band without chasing the past."

Born out of the West Coast Metal scene in the 80's, Metal Church quickly became one of the standout talents of their genre. The band's first release simply entitled "Metal Church" postured the band as one of the pioneers of the thrash/metal scene, while their sophomore release "The Dark" was championed as one of the premier metal releases of the 80's.

Now with the current band's line up, Kurdt Vanderhoof (guitar), Ronny Munroe (vox), Jeff Plate (drums), Rick Van Zandt (guitar) and Steve Unger on bass, "Generation Nothing" combines the best elements of the band's early roots with modern day lyrical content and a revived hunger that delivers an electric assault of anthemic & epic metal songs! Videos for "Generation Nothing" and "Dead City" are currently in the post production stage and a world tour is in the works for 2014. Official release date for "Generation Nothing" is scheduled for October 22, 2013.
Doro Pesch has always been a natural fighter. One who stays true to herself with heart and soul. She is an icon and a decisive power in the Heavy Metal scene. One who doesn't give up when life becomes hard and who doesn't shy away from long and difficult paths.

When Dorothee "Doro" Pesch is born on a 3rd June in Germany's city Duesseldorf fate has already planned many things for her. Already as a small girl her father, a lorry driver, takes her with him on his lorry-tours and awakens her love for travelling. Moving forward, facing new situations belongs to Doro `s life since she can remember.

Until that day – she is 16 years old by then – when she suddenly gets ill. The girl from Duesseldorf still goes to school as the clouds above her sky turn darker and darker. Week after week Doro gets weaker and weaker and no one has the faintest clue where it comes from. It takes some time until doctors find out in hospital that she is suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis.

Almost one year Doro has to stay in hospital because of that. She faces bad days as well as better days and has to experience how so called good friends turn away from her in that time. But she stays brave: If she gets well again one day, she promises herself, she will dedicate her life to music – her only real passion.

And Doro recovers. And keeps her promise. She founds the band Warlock, gains a record deal for them and can lead the life that she used to love in her childhood so much: The life on the road. Travelling around the world.

Soon she plays shows with bands such as Ozzy Osbourne, Bon Jovi or Judas Priest and turns to an idol for the whole music scene. Doro turns, as the first female bandleader of the whole genre, to an example for many others to follow. Especially for many other women. Until now Doro has that role.

Warlock has turned into a legend and a true cult band. Due to songs as "Für Immer", "True as Steel", All We Are" or "I Rule The Ruins" their name has become immortal and is still alive.

As well – or maybe especially – the new Doro album "Warrior Soul" carries on the spirit of the old Warlock times and adapts it to the current times. And times have seldom been better for Doro: during the last months several TV gigs - among others at two of the most famous German broadcasting stations (SAT1; RTL) – have underlined the enormous status of the Metal Queen. The success with the EP "In Love And Friendship" (4 weeks in the German Top 100) honoured somebody who truly deserves it.

But confidence of success has never been a reason for the natural fighter to rest. Doro would not be Doro, if she had not put all of her heart and energy into "Warrior Soul". Once again she had to go a long way. It has leaded her from the already familiar Yellohouse Studio in Wuppertal (Germany), the Atom-H-Studios and the cooperation with Chris Lietz and Torsten Sickert to the Switzerland where she worked together with Deezl Imhof (Foolpark Studios) and film director Luke Gasser. A great number of future hits have been developed on her journey as for example "Stranger's Yesterday", "Above The Ashes" or "You're My Family" which is dedicated to the many true Doro Fans. The Metal Queen has herself very special feelings for the album which she has not experienced anymore for a long time. "It's such an extremely strong feeling" she explains "It's just overwhelming."

With the Suiss Luke Gasser she already collaborated ahead of the album for a film production: "Anuk – Der Weg Des Kriegers" (Anuk – The Warrior's Way) in which Doro can be seen in her first acting role and for which she sings the title song of the soundtrack "Warrior Soul".

The album was finally mixed by Deezl and the new Yorker Metal Mike Goldberg who have put the finishing touches on it. "Warrior Soul" is not only the name of the album but it was also done with all soul of a true warrior.

Let her once again give you the creeps!

Images Of Eden
Progressive / Heavy Metal band based out of York, Pennsylvania, USA. Founded in 1998 by Gordon Tittsworth.
DemiAura rose from the ashes of the 3rd Incarnation of the Progressive Rock/Metal Fusion band Organism. The Idea for Organism was the brainchild of drummer Keith Heaney that began in 1997.
Joining forces with guitarist Bobby Chavez of Born of Fire and keyboardist Jonathan Gabriel Jr. of Phoenix & Dragon in January of 2013, the idea was and has been to play many different styles within the context of one project. The two main elements were composed of being able to use dynamics smoothly like switching from clean to heavy passages seamlessly and convincingly and inject different styles without sounding as it were forced. DemiAura plans on taking diversity to new levels with everything from the Prog Rock/Metal songs to cleaner acoustic tracks to even soundtrack soundscapes.

Featuring: Chelsea Wrathchild-Vocals
Bobby Chavez - Guitar (Formerly of Psychic Pawn, Born of Fire, Organsim) Keith Heaney - Drums ( Formerly of (Born of Fire, Organism) Currently in Vex.
