    Fancy on melodic Power Metal from the United States? Then you could find favour by WIDOW! Founded in 2000 in North Carolina, there were already three albums released: “Midnight Strikes” (2003), “On Fire” (2005) and “Nightlife” (2007). Also a gig at Germanys Swordbrothers Festival in 2010 has been played. The new piece “Life’s Blood” is the first WIDOW-album, which will be released through Pure Steel Records, after the two previous albums.

    On the twelve actual tracks you’ll get a great mixture of fresh heaviness and enthralling melodies. The inclined listener will hit more than a smell of NWoBHM, of course together with some well-known US-Bands, but never forgetting the European origins, which makes the band outstanding in the US-Sector. Sometimes the guys pound through sublime midtempo-areas (“Embrace It” and “Behind The Light”), a bit faster they get by twin-guitar-orgies such as “Take Hold Of The Night”, “The Burning Ones” or the last song “The One I Know”. Of course they also offer some calm parts, for example at the beginning of “Another Fallen Angel” and “In Dreams”. The production has got a very powerful strength, but is also made traditional. So you can expect a bold sound, but don’t have to get feared of a faceless sterile-production. The clear, very outstanding vocals, which are sometimes a bit emotional too, fits perfect to the majestic twin-guitar-leads, so no follower of this genre will be disappointed! In short: US Metal deluxe!

    WIDOW " Carved In Stone" – Cover, Tracklist, releasedate: 24th June 2016

    The release date of the WIDOW album „Carved In Stone“ is June 24th, 2016. The pre-order phase will start on June 10th, 2016 in our webshop.

    Five years after Life’s Blood, North Carolina’s beauties WIDOW present a brand-new album that will leave no one indifferent. Carved In Stone is a fifth album released over the last thirteen years. This album marks the arrival of a new drummer, who joined the already established singers/guitarists John E. Wooten IV and Cristof Bennett. The band still plays a wonderful mix of traditional American-rooted hard rock and fine old-school metal. When listening to the songs, one cannot help but notice the qualities one would traditionally find in classics like OZZY OSBOURNE, ALICE COOPER, VAN HALEN or even hints of LION, in a metal style that the band fully masters and even brings to new grounds. WIDOW will dazzle the listener with strong titles like “Another Time and Place” or “And We Are One”. Headbanging and fist pumping tracks like “Wisdom” and “Of the Blood We bind” could even awake a dead body from its torpor. Then, like a rollercoaster, WIDOW slows the pace down with “Time On Your Side”, but soon sets all engines on again with songs like “Borrowed Time” and “Live by the Flame”. This album is definitely a must.
