NOVA SKELLIS • US Power Metal • The falcon flies high again …


Dawn Of The Deaf

• The glorious return of a real US Metal legend
• Timeless, classic, with power and quality in one
• Gripping vocalised & catchy songs like from one cast

Singer and bassist Edward Green has been carrying his musical ideas and visions around for a very long time, when he finally decided to form NOVA SKELLIS in 2018. The singer is silent about the exact meaning of the band's name. Thus, we can only assume that in addition to the phonetic euphony the adequate terms "new" and "skills" also played a role.

At the latest since the Phantom Reunion Show 2018 at the Legions Of Metal Festival, the vocalist of the US METAL band has tasted blood again. Almost at the same time, Phantom's "Cyberchrist" album and as well the new single "The Violence Of Twilight" were released on vinyl via Metalloscope Music.

"Life Amongst The Damned" contains ten tracks in the best US Metal tradition. In addition to typical powerful numbers like "Fall In Line", "Mother, May I?" and "Gods To Strike You Down" there are also other shades on the album. So "All The Comfort Of A Graveyard" is a fascinating dark and doomy track. "Something Wicked This Way Comes" carries a 1970s charm, while "Skull Full Of Bees" shows NOVA SKELLIS from a more speedy side.

Each song has its own face and makes sure that the debut album is a traditional, heavy and varied release.

With "Life Amongst The Damned" NOVA SKELLIS prove that neither spatial separation nor language barriers hinder when the thought of Metal unites!

Wäre schon schön, wenn man nen neuen Thread aufmacht, vielleicht vorher mal zu gucken..ob es eventuell schon einen zu der Band geben könnte.

In diesem Falle mal wieder ja, es gibt schon einen.
Bitte einfach zusammenlegen....

Wurde sicher nicht gemacht, um Dich zu ärgern.
Einen solchen Hinweis kann man auch etwas freundlicher formulieren. Meinst nicht? Schöne Woche! ;)
Danke & yeah, habe gesehen, dass es oben eine Suchfunktion gibt, da werde ich künftig vorher gucken; wie man Threads zusammenlegt weiß ich allerdings noch nicht.
