BLAZING RUST / CARRIAGE / OATH OF WOE "Masters Of Metal: Volume 2" [CD]
2016 - Heavy Metal from Russia | Heavy Metal from United States
The first two volumes are due out in November. Masters Of Metal: Volume 1 puts forth CRYPT SERMON's (Philadelphia, PA) epic doom, the fist-pumping traditional heavy metal of RIOT CITY (Alberta, CAN), HELLRAZOR's (Raleigh, NC) hook-laden thrash, and the twin-guitar-centric melodic metal of OLD WOLF (Somerset, KY). Masters Of Metal: Volume 2 then sheds light on BLAZING RUST's (Saint Petersburg, RUS) soaring metal force, the King Diamond-esque approach of CARRIAGE (Portsmouth, VA), OATH OF WOE's (Aarhus, DEN) classic take on somber doom metal, and the impressively unique songwriting chops of WARLOK (Springfield, OR).
Each volume's thick, 16-page, full-color booklet is emblazoned with unique emblem artwork by Steven Cobb; and despite being a compilation series, every band is fully represented within-displaying the original cover art for each release, as well as lyrics, photographs, etc. Masters Of Metal provides yet another means for Divebomb Records to focus their passion for quality in order to champion metal acts that are out there raging today...as always: for the fans, by the fans!
