Kattah have signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of their new album ‘Lapis Lazuli‘.

Their debut album ‘Eyes Of Sand‘ (2010) attracted overwhelming reviews all over the world, and it came to no surprise when fellow Brazilian musical heroes Angra invited them to open their 2011 European tour, a great opportunity for Kattah to display their powerful live show and consolidate their name among thousands of heavy metal fans. ‘Lapis Lazuli‘ sees the band taking things to a whole new level, with stronger melodies, classier arrangements, outstanding performances and a production team which includes some of the best professionals in the business: Roy Z (Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Sepultura, Helloween) and Andy Haller (Ozzy Osbourne, System Of A Down). ‘Lapis Lazuli’ will be out October 28th, 2014.

TANTAL – New album ‘Expectancy’
Formed in 2004 in Moscow, Russia, Tantal attracted critical acclaim with the release of their debut album ‘The Beginning Of The End‘ (2009), an addictive mix of Progressive, Death, Thrash and Modern Metal enriched by gloomy conceptual lyrics and plenty of attitude.

In 2013 Tantal announced the addition of talented female vocalist Milana Solovitskaya to their ranks and a new album, ‘Expectancy‘, which redefines their sound: way more diverse and mature than its predecessor, ‘Expectancy‘ features beautiful catchy melodies, powerful riffs, expressive guitar solos and a groovy rhythm section, including one song in their native Russian language and an acoustic version of one song from the previous album as a bonus tracks, especially recorded for this release. The beautiful album artwork was conceived by renowned Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes (Arch Enemy, Morbid Angel, Firewind, Cryptopsy, Amaranthe). ‘Expectancy’ will be out October 28th, 2014 on Bakerteam Records.
