Ltd Edition Digipack reissue of the critically
acclaimed 2003 debut album from the prog metal
quartet MASTERCASTLE are currently working on their
fourth album entitled "Metals" with an
anticipated release of early 2013 on Lion Music.
The Mastercastle line up, driven by vocalist Giorgia
Gueglio, guitarist Pier Gonella and bassist
Steve Vawamas introduces a special new presence to the
band – drum legend John Macaluso (Malmsteen, James
Labrie, TNT, Ark etc).
Pier Gonella comments, “It’s fantastic to have John in
the band. His playing style has long been admired by all
Mastercastle members and to have his signature drum sound
driving the new material is something we can’t wait to
introduce to our fan base”.
First leaks of the new material suggest “Metals” will serve
up the best melodic metal album done by the band to date!
Having picked up considerable praise for the power and
melodicism of their debut “The Phoenix” in 2009;
Mastercastle wasted little time in delivering “Last Desire”
in 2010 and their epic third opus “Dangerous Diamonds” in
2011. All of which have seen praise worldwide for the bands
signature sound along with Giorgia Gueglio’s soaring vocals.
