Wintersun announce new album
The band comments:
It's 2017 folks, and it's going to be a great year! Time for some big WINTERSUN news? Yes, it is!
When we said that "IT IS DONE", we did not mean »Time II«, but we meant a NEW ALBUM for sure! »Time II« won't be the next WINTERSUN album, because of reasons you already know from past updates and interviews.
So what is IT? IT is a NEW ALBUM and it is 100% done! And no, that's not the name of the album. This album will be something new and different, but equally great or perhaps even better in some ways. Over 53 minutes of solid WINTERSUN material (with no intro tracks) and with a killer concept!
This album will be THE 3rd FULL LENGTH WINTERSUN album. We will release the name of it soon and other details such as the track list etc. We're gonna start putting the pieces of the puzzle together for you guys, how it's going to be released and what will happen... It will be a whole new experience! It will all make sense to you very soon!
And this album is not the only thing we've done, not by a long shot! In fact your minds will be blown soon! That is a guarantee. So click the notifications ON in our WINTERSUN page, if you don't want to miss out on the new album! (Because of Facebook algorithm reach limit). THANKS GUYS!

Gory Blister announce new album, line-up & dates
The sound of this new album, as yet untitled, will be deeply rooted in the main influences of the band. Although drawing inspiration from bands such as Death, Carcass, Kreator and Cannibal Corpse, Gory Blister are also evolving, focusing on melodies and atmospheres from the most modern metal sounds without distorting the band’s own unique style and personality.
Recently, bass player Fabiano Andreacchio has joined Gory Blister to complete the line-up. Fabiano also writes and produces his own solo project, Atomic Factory (also on Sliptrick Records). Whilst working on the new album together, the band are preparing to hit the stage again with three live gigs in Italy:
• 20th January 2017 at Cantrale Rock Pub – Erba (CO)
• TBD March 2017 at Il Postaccio – Rome
• 20th April 2017 at Legend Club – Milan
Gory Blister are:
Paolo ”John St John” Quaglia – Vocals | Raff Sangiorgio – Guitar | Giuseppe “Joe” Laviola – Drums | Fabiano Andreacchio – Bass
