METALMESSAGE VIII • Immortal Euphoria!


ᴳᴸᴼᴮᴬᴸ 
– Various Artists –

Quality instead of quantity, class instead of mass! 
On April 18 the latest promo compilation of METALMESSAGE ᴳᴸᴼᴮᴬᴸ
was released. 
“VIII • Immortal Euphoria!”, the successor to the 2019 published “VII • Respect The Steel”, proudly presents 15 Rock & Metal hopefuls, once again far off the undignified constructed mainstream.

True passion is immortal!

The classic designed cover artwork of “VIII • Immortal Euphoria!” comes from the capable hands of Minnesota based illustrators Steve Fastner & Rich Larson. 
The US graphic duo did cover artwork for bands like Overkill, Intruder & Powermad.

As always compiled with immense love, dedication and effort, the exquisite qualitative style variation of “VIII • Immortal Euphoria!” ranges from diverse, crisp Rock styles to epically uplifting Heavy Metal, deeply touching Doom Metal, whipping Thrash Metal and catchy Melodic Death Metal to gripping atmospheric Black Metal.

METAL is the MESSAGE … and the MESSAGE is LOUD !
