Sanity's 'Revelation' EP: A Symphonic Metal Odyssey Through Apocalypse

Delve into the epic narrative of 'Revelation,' the latest conceptual masterpiece from Berlin-based symphonic metal outfit Sanity. This five-track EP unfolds as a vivid musical journey inspired by the prophetic and dystopian themes found in the biblical book of Revelation. The band's musical prowess blends black and death metal roots with grand symphonic arrangements, crafting an immersive sonic experience.

Embracing a range of vocal styles, from powerful growls and intense shouts to hauntingly beautiful clean vocals, Sanity's compositions entwine heroic viking chants with soaring power metal melodies. The intricate guitar work, featuring melodic riffs and powerful lead guitars, harmonizes seamlessly with the thunderous drumming, transitioning from frenetic double bass-driven blasts to intense progressive metal rhythms.

Founded in 1994 by Philipp and Florian Weishaupt, Sanity has unleashed their creative force through three full-length albums and now 'Revelation,' showcasing their evolution and mastery of the symphonic metal genre. The EP captures the essence of the apocalypse depicted in the book of Revelation, encapsulating the chaos and majesty within its symphonic soundscape.

Listeners can immerse themselves in the cataclysmic storytelling of 'Revelation,' experiencing the thunderous crashes and divine proclamations echoing through each track. From the electrifying energy of lightning and thunder to the reverence for the Almighty, each note and lyric breathes life into this prophetic tale.

Rockshots Records is proud to announce the release of "The Crucible" the debut album from HARPAZO, a super-group formed by guitarist Marc Centanni and producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Gary Wehrkamp (Shadow Gallery, Ayreon).

Set for release on June 28th in EUROPE and July 5th in NORTH AMERICA, this progressive metal rock opera is a thrilling journey through a dystopian future, merging elements of progressive and power metal with symphonic and Celtic influences. "The Crucible" is a concept album that explores a world in turmoil where technology and prophecy collide. The story unfolds across various epic tracks, weaving a tale of revolution, assassins and a charismatic leader with a dark agenda. The narrative primarily takes place in Rome, Jerusalem, New York, and Washington DC offering a rich backdrop for the complex and intense musical arrangements.

Few weeks ago it has been announced the release of the first single from the album and finally "I Am God" is set to be released today May 15th. 

This track encapsulates the essence of Harpazo, presenting a dynamic, messianic, and powerful metal anthem filled with intense energy and compelling melodic sections. It takes listeners on a cinematic and haunting journey through a dystopian world, perfectly reflecting our metal opera vision. The bridge hooks you with its irresistible catchiness, smoothly transitioning into a robust and infectious chorus.

The addition of chilling violins and Gary Wehrkamp's operatic vocals effectively enhances the gothic and dystopian atmosphere the band aimed to create. Niklas Kahl (Lord of the Lost) delivers outstanding, punishing drumming utilizing double bass pedals to great effect. The guitars drive the song with brutal precision keeping listeners on the edge of their seats throughout.

"Jude Solomon," a multi-trillionaire tech-savior, is introduced in this track, along with his ambitious plans to revolutionize the world by dismantling traditional values and ushering in a new era. The song paints a vivid picture of a future where AI and technology offer near-immortality.

This track serves as the pulsating heart of the album and provides an excellent introduction to Harpazo. 

HARPAZO's unique sound is driven by its all-star lineup, featuring legendary musicians from the progressive and Christian metal scenes. Alongside Marc Centanni and Gary Wehrkamp, the album includes performances by: DC Cooper (Royal Hunt) Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord) Les Carlsen (Bloodgood) Rey Parra (Deny the Fallen, Sacred Warrior) Christian Liljegren (Narnia) Michael Drive Lee (Barren Cross, Worldview) Niklas Kahl (Lord of the Lost, Flaming Row) Lee Lemperle (Outside the Wall) Bruno Sa (Operation Mindcrime) Enzo Donnarumma (Enzo and the Glory Ensemble) Jennifer Eckhart (Jennifer K Eckhart & Stained Glass Road).
