FINLAND’S CHEVALIER AND LEGIONNAIRE PLAN SPLIT RELEASE

Representing a new breed in Finnish classic metal, CHEVALIER and LEGIONNAIRE will be teaming up for a split release via Gates Of Hell Records. The split – featuring one song from each band – will be recorded at Black Floyd’s Analog Studio in Hämeenkyrö, Finland. The recording will also mark the first Gates Of Hell release for CHEVALIER.

Comments CHEVALIER guitarist Tommi Puurunen: “We asked LEGIONNAIRE to do a split with us after playing gigs together to show the rest of the world a collaboration of Finnish metal played the way it never really has been played around here. Our side of the split is a fast-paced ripper taking you back a few centuries…”

“We are good friends with CHEVALIER and we are eagerly looking forward to the sessions and the release,” adds LEGIONNAIRE drummer Akseli Häärä. We are quite confident about the split release because we think the combination of LEGIONNAIRE and CHEVALIER is killer! That has already been proven since we’ve shared the stage with them a couple of times. There will be lots of epic guitar action, medieval tunes and speed coming up! Our song is a solid follow-up to the freshly-released full-length.”

Formed in 2016 in Helsinki, CHEVALIER took the underground by storm with its “A Call To Arms” EP. Recorded in the band’s rehearsal room, “A Call To Arms” showcased the banshee screams of vocalist Emma Grönqvist alongside furious IRON MAIDEN gallops and MERCYFUL FATE-like song structures.

LEGIONNAIRE already has one Gates Of Hell release to their credit – this year’s stalwart “Dawn Of Genesis”. Heralded for its relentless dual-guitar action and emotive vocals of Aku Tiensuu, “Dawn Of Genesis” instantly made LEGIONNAIRE a favorite among old-school metal fans. Prior to “Dawn Of Genesis”, the band released two demos before signing with Gates Of Hell.

TYFON’S DOOM TO RELEASE “EMPEROR’S PATH” THIS NOVEMBER

Still riding the wave of momentum from their well-received 2016 “Yeth Hound” EP, Finnish classic metal outfit TYFON’S DOOM will release its first full-length, “Emperor’s Path” this November via Gates Of Hell Records. The album contains 11 songs at approximately 45 minutes.

“Emperor’s Path” includes a wide arsenal of original riffs and melodies, and the song material varies between straightforward heavy metal to quite complex song structures and tempo changes,” comments TYFON’s DOOM’s lone member, Tommi Varsala. “The style is still very guitar-oriented old-school metal with fast and slow and even acoustic moments.”

“Yeth Hound” instantly won over the traditional metal contingent with its memorable use of dueling guitar melodies, adventurous arrangements and the charismatic vocals of Varsala. This time, however, Varsala says to expect something different and more evolved. “Now the music sounds professional, and instead of a drum machine, there’s a real musician playing the drums,” he says. “Also, in my opinion, I sing a lot better than I did on ‘Yeth Hound’. Vocals are still in that unique style, but executed like I originally planned it in my head when I started this project. Just couldn’t do it before this.”

Varsala is joined in the studio by drummer Cederick Forsberg (ROCKA ROLLA, BLAZON STONE), who “did an awesome job.” Aside from Forsberg, though, “Emperor’s Path” is all Varsala, who considers songs such as “Moonlight” and the title track to be highlights.

“For a couple of months, I’ve listened to this album once per day on average and it seems that this album causes a serious addiction. This really is a great album and I’m glad I had a chance to make it. For that I want to thank everyone who have supported or is planning to support this project!”
