Second release from the hotly tipped Finn progressive metal outfit Status Minor.


Previously out of print, this new digipack re-release from Lars Eric Mattsson comes freshly remastered and remixed. Vocals by Bjorn Lodin (Baltimoore / Hard).




Back with their first album since 2005, progressive metal originals Lord Of Mushrooms returned on 27 February 2012 with their third album “Perspectives”. Now fronted by Gus Monsanto (ex Adagio), Lord Of Mushrooms is back to the front and blessed with an incredible collection of songs. “Perspectives” is, without any doubt, the most ambitious and challenging work the band has created to date.

“Perspectives” has over the last few months been picking up extremely positive praise from press and fans worldwide and now the band have just unveiled their first ever promo video for the track “Circles On The Water” on YouTube at 


Taken from the aforementioned “Perspectives” release, the track has been edited down from its original 8 minute running length to make a more streamlined version of one of the album’s centre pieces.

March 23rd saw the final instalment of Lion Music's series of remastered and expanded versions of the first four Consortium Project releases, which along with Consortium Project V - Species released back in 2011 saw the end of one of metal's most ambitious concept album series.

Band leader Ian Parry's comments, "Lion Music recently presented the worldwide release of the 4th part of my Consortium Project Quadrilogy remaster series marking this the last release from the Consortium Project Pentalogy".

"Consortium Project IV “Children Of Tomorrow” features some of the best musicians / singers from the Netherlands i.e. Ivar De Graaf (ex-Within Temptation drummer who also wrote the music and performed the acoustic guitars on one of the bonus tracks) and Female singer Judith Rijnveld (Kingfisher Sky).

"It has been a privilege and I am proud to have worked with some of the best musicians / singers from the world of Rock-Prog-Gothic Metal. I’d like to thanks all my colleagues for there incredible contribution during the past 12 years and also thanks our fans for their continued support. It has been an incredible journey and I will treasure the memories forevermore".

Shredlord Joe Stump has finished work on his 8th solo album whose title will be announced shortly.

On the new material Joe reveals, “This record is heavier, darker, more classically based and technical compared to “Virtuostic Vendetta”. With every record I try to step it up and challenge myself both playing-wise and compositionally, and I’ve certainly done that with this upcoming release”.

Fans of audacious fretwork keep an eye out for further news on Joe’s upcoming new release which packs a killer six string punch.
