Time to announce another hidden treasure, directly from the realms of lost Heavy Metal! RIGHTFUL HEIR from Ohio can easily represent what 80s-style Medieval Metal is all about! Powerful and enticing songwriting, brightly combined with fantasy and medieval warfare themes, in an addictive Heavy Metal adventure, like the ones we all long for!

With a total of 20 songs, ‘THE WILLS OF IRON - METAL BATTLEGROUNDS 86-89’ will cover the band’s early stages as FURIOUS HATRED, followed by the two RIGHTFUL HEIR rare demos, plus both Rick Miller’s band projects after Rightful Heir’s demise: MILD PSYCHOSIS and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED! If you are looking for HEATHENS RAGE and OVERLORDE vibes, search no more! Includes a 16-page booklet with songs lyrics, band biography and rare band photos. Dynamic mastering accomplished by Bart Gabriel (CIRITH UNGOL, PAGAN ALTAR, SORTILEGE). Limited to 500 copies. Out in late March 2018.

All pre-orders will enclose a limited and exclusive Rightful Heir promo-photo!



Formed in 1983 by two brothers, Joe and Nick Sanzeri, together with childhood friend Jeff Haske, MAELSTROM has gained some interest in recent years, among 80s Speed fans and Chicago Metal enthusiasts, fueled by their obscure amateur video 'H-Bomb'. Their demo recordings can be considered extremely rare nowadays (web world included), especially their insane 1986 demo ‘Hammerhead’. It is with a great delight that we bring all those songs for you, available on CD for the first time! In the 'CHICAGO MELTDOWN 83-89' CD, be prepared for 10 songs of pure Speed Metal madness, with a good amount of early-EXCITER/ABATTOIR vibes: the entire ‘Hammerhead’ and ‘Break Down The Wall’ demos, with 2 bonus tracks, including the ‘Unleash The Dogs’ song, present in the notable compilation LP of Chicago's best bands ‘Chicago Metal Works Battalion #1’ (SLAUTER XSTROYES, PARADOXX, WAR CRY, etc)! Comes with a 12-page booklet containing the band biography (written by Joe Sanzeri), band photos and song lyrics. Limited to 500 copies. Out in late March 2018!

All pre-orders will enclose a limited and exclusive Maelstrom promo-photo!
