Red hot London based trio Elbrano are all set to release their debut album, 'Agora', in late February and today we are pleased to unveil the very first video from the album here on MetalTalk.

'Agora' is a record that is destined to make waves. It's catchy and upbeat progressive rock with a big edge and it's pretty diverse too. Here's 'Euphoria Warrior', for your pleasure.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Alex Akselberg told us: "We are excited to release our new single 'Euphoria Warrior' to kick start our upcoming launch of 'Agora', our conceptual debut album due to be released early 2017.

"'Euphoria Warrior' describes the mask worn by many in order to conform to a systematic and emotionless society to reach a superficial well-being.

"The album was recorded at Slipway Studio and produced by Simone Filliali and Val Proletarsky. The video was filmed and directed by Angry Elf Media and Alex Magil at Terminal Studios, London."


Elbrano's music is energetic and uplifting, and at times it can be dark and intense. The trio hail from three polar opposite musical backgrounds and were formed in 2012.

2017 will be a big, big year for Elbrano. Watch this space...

In the meantime, here's 'Timeglass' and 'Temptress' from 2014s 'Under The Arches' EP.

Elbrano are:
Marios Kalantzakis (bass guitar/backing vocals)
Alex Akselberg (lead singer/guitars)
Bruno Tolosa (drums)

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
