DisManic Distribution and Knife Fight Media team up to present two new releases from earMUSIC, the international rock and pop label from the entertainment group, Edel. Out in North America for the first time on March 16th, 2010, will be Gamma Ray’s To The Metal! and Uriah Heep’s Celebration.
Thomas Ziegler, Managing Director of DisManic Distribution, says, “I am very excited to start a new venture with old friends! I have had the pleasure of working with Gunter Ford and his staff at Knife Fight Media during the last 6 years on a number of SPV releases, and Max Vaccaro from Edel is doing a terrific job signing true metal and rock legends to earMusic. Our synergetic team work will make Gamma Ray, Uriah Heep and future albums released under this new deal a great success!”
Max Vaccaro, Director of earMUSIC adds, “After only one year, our label earMUSIC became a true force for rock music in Europe thanks to the success of artists like Chickenfoot, Foreigner, Deep Purple and many others. We’re very excited about the US release of the new Uriah Heep Greatest Hits album Celebration and Gamma Ray’s new album To The Metal! in collaboration with DisManic and Knife Fight Media; we’re sure that these titles will be only the first of a long series of successes in the USA for our label”.
Gamma Ray puts out the clarion call to metal heads across the globe with their 10th studio album To The Metal! By far one of the strongest offerings from Gamma Ray in their storied history, To The Metal! proves there is no band better when it comes to classic Heavy Metal. Helloween fans will be delighted to know that vocalist Michael Kiske will team again with Kai Hansen to sing a song together on this album.
Iconic ‘70’s UK rock band Uriah Heep mark their 40th Anniversary with a collection of their classics and two new track offerings in Celebration! Along with twelve beautifully re-recorded and mastered classics, Celebration has two original tracks and features a special edition containing a 45-minute bonus DVD documenting their outstanding live show at the legendary Sweden Rock Festival 2009.
Both Gamma Ray and Uriah Heep have North American tour plans in 2010, so stay tuned for more details soon! For all press requests and interview inquiries, please contact:
