Dread The Forsaken new album “Unbound” launched on 23rd November 2010

Based out of Guatemala City, Guatemala with a vocalist from PA-USA, Dread The Forsaken combines Power-Metal with a classic “raw” Hardcore sound along with some Traditional Heavy Metal elements.

With Images of Eden vocalist, Gordon Tittsworth, in a melodic yet much more aggressive style, these 2 cultures/ styles synergize into an original, highly energetic sound with raw intensity, fast drumming, frantic guitar riffing and catchy vocal “hooks”/ melody lines.

For fans of bands such as: Disturbed, Mudvayne, Iron Maiden, Killswitch Engage, old Anthrax, Godsmack, etc.

Nightmare Records welcomes SEVEN KINGDOMS to the fold

Nightmare Records would like to welcome Florida-based female-fronted power metallers SEVEN KINGDOMS to the fold. Recently Nightmare records inked a deal with Seven Kingdoms to release their upcoming “self titled” album Seven Kingdoms due to hit streets July 13th worldwide via Nightmare Records and associated distribution partners.

Nightmare Records owner and prog power vocalist Lance King was impressed with the bands vocal siren Sabrina Valentine, her unique, warm and melancholic melodic sense combined with this speedy power metal band  should please fans that are into the sound of Evanesence, Nightwish, Iced Earth, Within Temptation, Epica and Blind Guardian. Seven Kingdoms was formed in Deland, Florida in 2007 by Camden Cruz and Bryan Edwards. After forming the bands initial lineup they entered  Morrisound Recording Studios in August 2007 they finished production on their debut self financed independent release, “Brothers of the Night”  lyrically inspired from the literary works of George R. Martin.

Playing shows throughout the southeastern region of the United States, the band share the stage with bands Sonata Arctica, The Agonist, Stephen Pearcey, Circle II Circle. In 2009 the band solidified their lineup and the new and improved Seven Kingdoms finished their self titled sophomore effort again at the well known Morrisound Studios.
