    MERGING FLARE: “Reverence” out 11.5.2011


    The finest piece of Finnish melodic heavy metal in ages!
    Disentertainment will release “Reverence”, the debut album of the Finnish
    band Merging Flare. The album will hit the stores on May 11th 2011. Before
    this the group has released one split single and two demos. Merging
    Flare has also performed some highlighted gigs in Finland playing at
    festivals with such acts as Blaze Bayley, Enforcer, Nightingale
    and Seventh Wonder.

    The music of Merging Flare represents the highest level of
    musicianship packed in a melodic heavy metal style that combines
    influences from bands like Accept, Judas Priest and Helloween with
    massive Queen-esque choirs and spices from the 80′s game music genre.

    “Reverence” will also feature a special guest appereance by Kai Hansen
    (Gamma Ray, ex- Helloween), the German power metal godfather, on four
    tracks of the album.

    “Reverence” was recorded and mixed at Content Union Studio by Eero
    Kaukomies and mastered at Unisound Studio by the beast himself, legendary Dan Swanö.

    The band promises that the production on this album is crisp and a vital
    nod to the old school, summoning the spirit of 80′s metal back to
    life.

    The album consists of 11 songs:

    1. At Daggers Drawn
    2. Faker
    3. Carved in Stone
    4. Terrordome
    5. In the Line of Fire
    6. Steel Redeemer
    7. Pride and Bravery
    8. Killing Ground
    9. Under the Fire
    10. Star Odyssey
    11. Sign of the Crimson Storm (Riot Cover)

    Members of the band have previously shared their talent for example in
    the following bands: Amberian Dawn, Heavy Metal Perse, Domination
    Black, Elenium and also in different tribute bands (Judas Priest,
    Gamma Ray, Running Wild). Kasperi Heikkinen, the lead guitar player of
    Merging Flare, has also played several shows with Gamma Ray,
    substituting Henjo Richter.

    The first appetizers have been published in MySpace and
    at the website of the record label. Reverence can now be
    preordered at Levykauppa Äx.

    The first 3 songs in myspace (At Daggers Dawn, Carved in Stone & Killing Ground) are from the upcoming album, the last 2 old single songs (Steel Redeemer & Under the Fire) will also be on the album but as re-recorded versions.

    I do recommend to use the player in Disentertainment's webpage rather than myspace. Myspace is awful, especially after the new changes.

    Thanks for the kinds words so far everybody. I do know that I am hardly an objective person when it comes to this record but it _really_ is an amazing one. I trust it to be one of the best ones in it's genre this year. Since we are a small UG indie label I do not expect it to show on sell rates though :D

    Sorry, I don't quite follow what you mean? I do not play in the band. I belong to Disentertainment...as I did mention on the topic opener.

    Btw, also public thanks to Dan for his great work with the mastering. It was just what was called for. Flare-guys also did sent their hellos (they supported Nightingale in last November).
