Audio samples of all 10 tracks that appear on "Prophecy", the forthcoming debut album from Sydney, Australia-based "epic, aggressive" metallers DRAGONSCLAW, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The CD features guest vocals from Blaze Bayley (IRON MAIDEN, WOLFSBANE) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (EDGE OF FOREVER, EDEN'S CURSE).
Commented vocalist Giles Lavery: "We have worked really hard on putting together the best collection of songs, scrapping anything that wasn't up to our highest standards. In fact, we wrote and recorded one track we felt very strongly about in the final days of recording... Totally crazy, but that's what it takes to have the best record we can!
"The melody and songwriting has gotten a little bit lost these days in modern metal. We are hoping to re-introduce that while maintaining the crushing power that only heavy metal can provide. Basically, everything we grew up with and loved about the genre is here on display.
"I cannot wait for people to hear this material and to perform it live once we hit the road!"
DRAGONSCLAW is currently seeking a suitable label to release the album, which is tentatively due in early 2012.
The band's lineup is as follows:
Ben Thomas - Guitar Giles Lavery - Vocals Ray Martens - Keyboards Aaron Thomas - Bass, Orchestration
DRAGONSCLAW is looking for a full-time drummer.
