    The new album "Unleashed" of EMERALD will be released officially worldwide on 24th of August 2012.

    The Swiss band EMERALD now exists for 17 years and in the meantime they have produced 5 albums. They are known and appreciated for their trend-free, speedy Power Metal, rather melodic and powerful and with high vocals. Now, two years have passed since their last studio-album “Re-Forged”, which means: it’s time for something new!

    Their new album “Unleashed” (playing time ca. 45 minutes) seems to be more in the direction of US-Metal. Not only because guest-vocalist George Call (ASKA, Ex-OMEN) joins the band with “Eye of the Serpent”. But now and then there are also some songs which are more like European Power Metal, which fit in very well with the US-Metal parts. In this production the guitars are more powerful than ever before. The band’s new vocalist Thomas Winkler (with EMERALD since “Re-Forged”) has developed his voice and thus proves that he can compete with the band’s former singer Jvo Julmy.

    Track list:

    1 Face Of Evil
    2 F.T.M
    3 Another Universe
    4 A Past Never Born
    5 Eye Of The Serpent
    6 Harleking
    7 Blessed
    8 Ancient Mystery
    9 Wrath Of God

    Total playtime: 46:06

    Amongst many great candidates, we finally found the perfect singer for our sound! Many of you may already know him! It's GEORGE CALL (ASKA, ex-OMEN)!!!

    We are beyond happy that one of the greatest metal singers of our times is now a part of our band! It's gonna be a whole new experience working with a singer that lives overseas, but everyone who has already heard his amazing voice knows it will be totally worth it! Just listen to his vocals on our song "Eye of the Serpent":

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX_-vZ1cVN4"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX_-vZ1cVN4[/ame]

    Here's George's statement about joining Emerald:
    "It came to be that Emerald were in the unenviable position of having to look for a singer. They thought I was far too busy but I'm glad we talked because our collaboration on the song "Eye of the Serpent" was, bar none, among the best songs in all of Metaldom in 2013. How could we not possibly further explore that potential? I met the guys, their wives and girlfriends when we performed together in their native Switzerland on tour some years earlier and we hit it off magnificently. We nurtured a friendship and mutual camaraderie which now takes one further evolutionary step, sprouting wings as we combine our respective talents and seek to take Emerald to new heights of Metal glory. Hail!"

    WELCOME ABOARD, BROTHER !!!

    LINE-UP 2014:
    George Call - vocals
    Michael Vaucher - guitars
    Manuel Werro - guitars
    Adriano Troiano - bass
