Pure Steel Records is proud to announce the signing of U.K. metal act Shadowkeep, from Guildford, Surrey.
Early in 2017, the bands founding members Chris Allen and Nikki Robson welcomed James Rivera (Helstar, Seven Witches and Vicious Rumors) into the current line-up as the new vocalist. Rivera will be prominently featured on the forthcoming self-titled album, marking a new beginning for the band.
Details on artwork, track listing and release date will be announced in future updates. The new album is co-produced by Larry Barragan (Helstar) in Houston TX and Karl Groom (Threshold) in the UK. The album is expected to break new grounds for the longstanding British band, expanding a large following with the addition of the legendary American vocalist. This release will be the fourth full length album in the celebrated history of the band.
In the wake of "Shadowkeep" being released, Pure Steel Records will re-release the bands previous albums - "Corruption Within," "A Chaos Theory" and "The Hourglass Effect" - and their self-titled EP from 1999. All will be available on vinyl format with bonus exclusive tracks. More details to follow.
Along with the label signing, Shadowkeep is pleased to announce that the band has been confirmed to headline the Full Metal Osthessen Festival in Niederaula-Hessen, Germany on March 2-4, 2018. The band will announce its day and time as the event gets closer. This will be the bands first appearance in Germany with James Rivera!!
The band commented: "The new album is a kind of new beginning with James Rivera for all intents and purposes slated for a likely 3 new releases, and a new deal with Pure Steel, so the tentative title of the new album is 'Shadowkeep.'"
Bassist Stony Grantham added: "We are really psyched and thrilled to become part of the Pure Steel Family and bring glistening power metal to the Metal Masses!! To Andreas Lorenz and Bob Mitchell, thanks for everything!!"
