Gatesofhellrecords is proud to announce the new release of Blazon Rite “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” album! On April 14, 2023 Gates of Hell Records will release the second full length album of Epic Metallers BLAZON RITE. Emerging Philadelphia epic metal heroes BLAZON RITE will release their second album, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs”, this spring via Gates Of Hell Records.
Recorded in May 2022 with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations Studios, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” is the highly anticipated follow-up to BLAZON RITE’s masterful 2021 debut, “Endless Halls Of Golden Totem”.
Comprising seven cuts that dig into the ethos and essence of what true metal should be in 2023, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” boats BLAZON RITE’s now patented blend of strident guitar melodies and true metal persuasiveness. However, “Wild Rites” emerges as a more direct and catchy offering than its predecessor.
BLAZON RITE rapidly emerged as one of the new leading faces in the American traditional metal scene. The excitement and strong press surrounding “Endless Halls” was significant — and justified. This year promises to be a busy one for the band. Playing as many shows as possible behind “Wild Rites” will be the next step on BLAZON RITE’s epic metal journey.
The lyrical themes on “Wild Rites and Ancient Songs” provide an escape from the real world. For the second consecutive album, Blazon Rite has created moods and landscapes that the listener can use to their imagination. (The band even did their own rendition of a Christmas song, “The Coming Tide of Yule.”) And Blazon Rite again tapped Metal Matt Stikker for the cover art to properly visualize their world.
“Wild Rites and Ancient Songs” will be released on April 14 on the following formats:
COMPACT DISC / LMT 100 MILKY CLEAR VINYL / 200 LMT ELECTRIC BLUE VINYL / REGULAR BLACK VINYL / DIGITAL
