HI-GH joins our roster

...And here's the second band signing announcement from this year (there will be 3 more to follow!):

We are happy to welcome to our small family HI-GH, a very young band from Rome, in fact the youngest one on our roster now. These Italian maniacs formed the group in 2012, released one EP and one full-length album ("Night Dances"), and convinced us not only through their music but also with their attitude, full of enthusiasm and dedication. We haven't seen their show personally yet (only the live clips that are on YouTube), but we have met a few times, once at their rehearsal. The feeling was just right, about everything. As far as their style goes, it could be best described as furious, relentless Speed/Thrash Metal with Punk influences, and spiced up from time to time with '60s and '70s Space Rock/Psychedelia, so you could call them a crossover band in a way. Their music is raw and gritty but also more than just competent technically... the melodic and flashy solos are the best proof. It's totally old school, but at the same time sounds fresh and definitely very personal, a true joy to listen to. Imagine an explosive mixture of MOTORHEAD, VENOM, "Kill'Em All" era METALLICA, "Show No Mercy" era SLAYER (especially when it comes to the vocals), INEPSY, TANK, EXCITER, BLESSED DEATH, G.B.H., D.R.I. and HAWKWIND... Actually, don't imagine. Just listen to the full "Night Dances" album that the band put on their YouTube channel, and see (hear) for yourself!



HI-GH are currently working on the songs for their second album, which they plan to record this month.
"Till Death and After" is scheduled for a release this summer.

Find out more about the band, watch some promo and live photos (we've collected plenty of fantastic live photos!), and check the links to their pages from HI-GH page on our website.

And the 3rd of our November 14th releases... Together with ALBERT BELL'S SACRO SANCTUS "Deus Volt" and ARKHAM WITCH "Demos from the Deep" limited digipak, we'll release the second album of these speed metal maniacs from Rome.
HI-GH "Till Death and After" shows their enthusiasm and unrestrained energy with some punk influences and attitude. Their style is raw and gritty, but at the same time more than just competent technically, and their classic heavy metal inspirations are even more audible now, while the previously present psychedelic elements practically disappeared. They also paid tribute to their past, covering "German Metal Attack", a song of HASTIGHED, which was a black/thrash band of the vocalist/bassist Tommaso "Slowly" before he formed HI-GH. Old school metalheads, and especially fans of MĂ–TORHEAD, EXCITER, JUDAS PRIEST, early METALLICA, early SLAYER, TANK, INEPSY, MIDNIGHT and G.B.H. are in for a real treat here!

We've prepared a promo clip for "Till Death and After" (featuring a fragment of the title song):


Last month the band posted one song "The Russian Border" on their YouTube. You can check other two, "Born Under Evil Defence" and "Forged in Hell", on our YouTube channel or just listen to them and also to another song, "Drug Your Destiny", from our Bandcamp page, from which you can order it as digital download.

Check more info about the album on the page of this release.

You can pre-order HI-GH "Till Death and After" CD from our SHOP page with 2 Euro discount and with lower shipping rates (we'll be sending with Deutsche Post) until tomorrow midnight. We made it available also in a convenient bundle with the band's previous album ("Night Dances") - 2 CDs for 18,00 Euro only during the pre-order!

And here's the cover art by yours truly. :)
