CARVED new video and Festival in July

It was the year 2007 when the Apuan quintet started to carve first plates of memory, drop by drop, step by step, forging his road to a paved path of labours and emotions, leading them to share important stages with best italian bands: Destrage, Necrodeath, Schizo, Vexed, Bejelit, Story of Jade, and many more, until 2010, when they gave birth the first self-titled EP, and the European tour supporting Necrodeath, in their 25° years of career celebrated tour. A long series of passing the torch travels down this road 'til 2013 and the release of the first full-length "Dies Irae"; from the famous finnish mastering studios Chartmakers Studio (Volbeat, Rammstein, Apocalyptica), and under the brilliant leadership of Bakerteam Records "Dies Irae" enters in the main channels of distribution, and it has been welcomed by critics, webzines, fanzines and radios with great enthusiasm. "Orchestral saturnine and drenched in pathos Dies Irae is an intense experience of sound, scope and atmosphere That commands your attention before conquering your soul." Robert Baker - The Midlands Rocks. Days of Wrath Tour started to promote the album, leading the band a year and a half in countries such as Czech Republic, Ukraine, Estonia and Latvia; sharing stages in big clubs and festival like Estragon in Bologna, Bingo Club in Kiev, Fontaine Palace in Liepaja, Rock Inn Somma fest, with impressive artists like Moonspell, Vader, Death, Gorguts, Skyforger and Amon Amarth. The journey absolutely needed a brand-new chapter, ending all that had been narrated in Dies Irae. "Kyrie Eleison" born in the end of 2015, second full-length album that concludes the narrative cycle started in the first work. Album entirely recorded, produced, mixed and mastered in Domination Studio by Simone Mularoni and Simone Bertozzi, and finally turned into images by the visionary arts of Simone Bertozzi; with very special guests of Marco Mantovani in the sound engineering of the orchestra and the exclusive violins of Federico Mecozzi, violinist of Mr Ludovico Einaudi. And now it's time to spread the story... now it's time to “carve” new memories!

Carved has released the new Lyric video for the track The Time Traveller, taken from the last album Thanatos.

The band will be on stage July 7th at Rock the Castle Festival with Slayer, Goijra, Phil Anselmo, Overkill, Onslaught, Necrodeath.

CROSSBONES is the most recognized metal act in Albania and the only band from the mid 90’s that still keeps going, today stronger than ever. Their new album “WWIII” is making quite a buzz since its launch in January 13th 2017. The news has spread throughout 3 continents, Europe, USA and Australia in about 100 webzines and portals with great reviews. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Tommy Talamanca (Sadist) at Nadir Music Studios. “WWIII” combines American thrash metal influences with a dark sound and typical Est European sonorities. The result is an album created with the intention of hit hard the ears of the listener without losing melodic passages and “catchy” riffs, and where the recurring use of both English and Albanian languages marks a new way in the European post-thrash genre. Among countless gigs and performances, CROSSBONES have played with Rock and Metal giants such as Ian Paice, legendary drummer of Deep Purple and as a direct support act for Greek Black Metal legends of Rotting Christ. Furthermore the band has headlined many concerts and festivals in Italy, Greece, FYROM, Montenegro, Kosovo, toured in Baltics (Estonia and Latvia), Ukraine and headlined Balkan Metal Meeting 4 Tuzla/Bosnia, April 27-28 2018, and more.
