    The cult US metalheads Axemaster from Ohio, which are surely well-known to friends of American steel with “Blessing in the Skies” and “Death before Dishonor”, have signed a worldwide deal with us. The new album is entitled “Overture to Madness” and will be probably released in 1st quarter of 2015.

    Bandstatment:
    Both the production of and release plans for the new Axemaster album have been long and challenging tasks; but this deal is obviously a HUGE step toward the release of "Overture to Madness" (a goal that has taken a lot of time and effort). Located in Germany, Pure Steel is a HIGHLY respected company internationally. So with Axemaster's past accomplishments and fan base, it's a perfect combination of band and label!

    Guitarist Joe Sims said: "We are really proud to be signed with a great company like Pure Steel and be label-mates with classic bands like Omen and Halloween. It's fitting that the label is from Germany because the fans from that part of the world have always been some of the most loyal supporters of Axemaster! I have always said that our new material really deserves to be released, distributed, and promoted properly by a good company, and it's great to know that that's definitely going to happen!!!"

    We will surely continue to keep everyone updated on the progress of the album as well as any important band news...........

    AXEMASTER are back!!! The release date of the new album "Overture To Madness" is March 6th 2015. The preorder phase will start on February 27th 2015 in our webshop.

    The banner AXEMASTER still might be familiar to many genre-lovers. In 1987 (“Blessing In The Skies”, Azra Records!) and 1990 (“Death Before Dishonor”), the Power Metal group from Ohio have released two very underrated, cult albums.

    After 25 years, the guys are back with “Overture To Madness”; released through Pure Steel Records. Old trademarks, known from the band for decades, also will be presented. Nevertheless, the band has arrived in the brave new world, but they still deliver their old passion without any compromises. On all twelve tracks partly aggressive, classical Metal is joining forces with a modern, bright, but also authentic production. Some Thrash influences and the rough, deeper vocals of the new, talented front man Geoff McGraw also fit perfect to the whole concept.

    AXEMASTER are lords of the American underground; and “Overture To Madness” shows it up perfectly!

    AXEMASTER "Blessing In The Skies" - LIMITED VINYL EDITION - Cover, Tracklist, releasedate: 6th October 2017

    The release date of the AXEMASTER album „Blessing In The Skies“ on limited vinyl edition is October 6th, 2017. The pre-order phase will start on September 22nd, 2017 in our webshop. The Album will release in a limited Edition of 200 black copies, with 10 Bonustracks and insert on double vinyl.

    Through our label the Ohio metalheads AXEMASTER already released their first album since returning to the scene in 2010, titled „Overture To Madness“ 2 years ago. Now it’s time to bring the legendary debut „Blessing In the Skies“ back on vinyl. It hasn’t been available on vinyl since the first pressing through Azra Records in 1987. Like always limited to 200 copies, US Metal cult tunes like „Golgotha“, „Rock Forever“, „Crusades“ and „Demon Machine“ are back in full beauty along with bonus tracks that include the songs from the "5 Demons" EP. Mostly traditional heavy metal inspired, always straight and uncompromising, the band presented more than 40 minutes of finest, unconventional „Cleveland Metal“, which is on the same level like bands such as Breaker. A must have item for US Metal vinyl collectors!

    The album “Blessing In The Skies” will be released in a limited edition of 200 black copies with 10 Bonustracks and insert on double vinyl.
