Inner Siege is America’s answer to the European Power Metal scene and this band is poised and ready to take the metal world by storm! Hailing from Peoria Illinois, Inner Siege is proud to announce they have inked a deal with Los Angeles based Roxx Records to release their debut full length CD.

Inner Siege are proud to wear that Euro influenced Power Metal title on their sleeve citing such bands as  Firewind, Kamelot, Dream Evil and Iron Maiden as some of their influences. Be prepared because once the world hears their debut release it’s easy to see they fit right in to that mold.  Entitled ‘Kingdom of Shadows’ the bands debut is a concept album like no other, comparisons are already being made to such landmark conceptual albums as Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche. But they are no copy cats, as familiar as their sound may be this album is prepared to take the listener to a new level and on a whole new journey of the mind.

To insure their debut album hits hard and leaves an everlasting impression on the world the band has enlisted some key forces in the Power Metal community to bring this release to life. Brought in to the project to mix and master the new release was none other  than Fredrik Nordstrom of Dream Evil, who has also worked with such acts as In Flames, Opeth and Dimmu Borgir just to name a few. Also recruited to bring ‘Kingdom of Shadows’  to life through the brilliant cover artwork was multi-talented Brazilian/Potuguese graphic designer Gustavo Sazes who has done artwork for many artists through the years including the likes of such fine artists as Firewind, Kamelot, Dream Evil and even Arch Enemy.

So be prepared to enter the ‘Kingdom of Shadows’ as we unleash upon the world the debut album from… Inner Siege!

Set for release on December 11, 2012 pre-order packages are now available and going quickly!

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
