STORMWARRIOR Signs With MASSACRE RECORDS

German "true" metallers STORMWARRIOR have inked a deal with Massacre Records. The band's fourth album, tentatively titled "Heathen Warrior", will be released before the end of this year as a limited digipak with bonus material, CD and numbered gatefold vinyl. The mixing and mastering will be handled by Tommy Hansen (HELLOWEEN, HAMMERFALL, PRETTY MAIDS) at Jailhouse Studios in Denmark while the artwork will be created by Uwe Karczewski. According to a press release, "Metalheads can expect another combinationof explosive guitar works, catchy hooks but also some new toppings to the "typical STORMWARRIOR sound!"

Locomotive Records released the third studio album from STORMWARRIOR, entitled "Heading Northe", in North America in April 2009. The CD, which was released in Europe in February 2009 via Dockyard 1, was recorded at the group's own Thunderhall Studios and was mixed with Piet Sielck (SAVAGE CIRCUS, IRON SAVIOR) before it was mastered at Tommy Hansen's Jailhouse Studios.

STORMWARRIOR is known for its unique combination of "true metal" anthems with lyrics that are rooted in Nordic mythology.

After the release of its "Northern Rage" CD, STORMWARRIOR was invited to play all the biggest festivals like Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock, MANOWAR's Magic Circle and Earthshaker. The band also collaborated with Kai Hansen by performing HELLOWEEN classics during select live appearances.
