DARKEST ERA teams up with CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC for release of new album ‘SEVERANCE’

CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is extremely pleased to announce the deal with former Metal Blade artists DARKEST ERA for the release of its new album ‘Severance’.

Since their formation in 2005, Darkest Era have progressed their special and original ‘Celtic Heavy Metal’ formula, with epic compositions influenced by the darker side of Irish folklore as well as the classic, double twin-guitar duelling of bands like Thin Lizzy andIron Maiden.

The new album shows more of this perfectly balanced formula with a more reflective spirit than in the past, but maintaining the untouched energetic vibe that has been the main characteristic of the band to date.

Darkest Era guitarist Ade Mulgrew commented: “We are excited to be working with Cruz Del Sur to finally get this beast uncaged. The label has put out some amazing records in recent years and we feel we are in very good company.”

‘Severance’  will be released June 13th in Europe and June 3rd in the US in COMPACT DISC / VINYL / DIGITAL.
