"The Sermon Begins" by DARK MINISTRY (Official teaser):
The album features band's most extreme approach musically and acts as a bridge between their mid 90's Power/Thrash Metal influences and the most Extreme elements of today's Metal.
The unique nature of this album is that it doesn't fit in any genre exclusively, it stands on many worlds and doesn't serve under one banner. It combines epic and dramatic musical structures with ultra fast drumming and aggressive vocals in order to bring the story behind the lyrics to life.
Because "Theater Of War" is a concept album, it is the final chapter of the trilogy the band began to unfold with their debut album. It's a story about absolutes and how they enslave people with their blinding light. The story of "a chosen one" who chooses to be an example and not a messiah, to become a "mortal sun" whose light guides and not only blinds.
For fans of Blind Guardian, Kreator... etc., as well as fans of all mid-Brutal & Extreme Metal styles! Also Recommended for every one who sees the last 25 years of Metal as a whole entity!!

Official worldwie release of the second full-length album by Polish Heavy/Power Metal band.
Recorded from March until September 2015, the album consists of 10 tracks in classic Heavy/Power Metal style. Drums were recorded in the renowned Hertz Studio, which works with world's leading Metal bands (Vader, Behemoth, Decapitated), while guitars, bass and vocals were recorded in Dobra 12 Studio, supervised by Piotr Polak. The album was mixed and mastered in Hertz Studio as well.
An interesting bit is definitely the guest appearance of Wojciech Hoffmann from the band Turbo on the title track. The musician, an icon of Polish Rock and Metal scene, played an exceptional solo, which certainly gives the song an additional bite.
"Tears Of The Ages" it's 50 minutes of real Metal music comprising tradition and modernity. Strong but melodic riffs along the lines of the genre classics like Iron Maiden, Saxon and Judas Priest. The sound is modern, powerful and elaborate, carrying the echoes of the pioneers' heirs, such as Primal Fear. Each piece is complemented by a number of juicy solos, and high-pitched melodic vocals are a flagship of this material. If we add fantasy themed and existential lyrics, then we receive a full picture of a varied, feisty and ambitious album!
This is a great album with rapid fire drums and shredding guitar solos that leaves you wanting more!!
Highly recommended for fans of: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Primal Fear and Helloween!!!
