REAPER ENTERTAINMENT EUROPE proudly announces the signing of the Finnish Melodic Death/Power-Metal-Newcomers GLADENFOLD.
GLADENFOLD is a group of five, out of Turku, Finland, rooted in Melodic Death Metals aggression and energy, borrowing the grandeur of Power Metal and Symphonic Metal, GLADENFOLD creates an inherently Nordic-sounding blend of metal music, basing itself especially within the Finnish metal tradition (inspired by for example Norther, Children of Bodom and Ensiferum), with German Power Metal (such as Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray and Freedom Call) still heavily influencing the overall sound.
GLADENFOLD serves roaring drums, tight and agile rhythm guitars, soaring guitar andkeyboard solos, ferocious growlingmixed with multi-layered singing as the foundation, but incorporates skilfully crafted keyboards,elegant classical guitars, the majestic symphonic orchestra and choir for even grander sonic landscapes
Now, the band signed a worldwide record deal with REAPER ENTERTAINMENT EUROPE.
The band states:
“We are more than excited to announce that we are bringing out our second album together with Reaper Entertainment Europe. It was hell of a ride to write, record and mix this monster, yet we‘re extremely proud how the album turned out and think it is worth all the efforts in the end. Needless to say we can‘t wait to share it with you!”
Greg from REAPER adds:
“When listening to the upcoming GLADENFOLD album for the first time we knew immediately we want to release this awesome masterpiece on REAPER! These guys managed to unite every element of the genre we love and combined it to a unique sound full of details and passion. Watch out – this release is going to be epic!”
The new album release is set for spring 2019.
