Pagan/Folk Metal brotherhood Heidevolk are to release their sixth full-length album on January 12th 2018 and will undertake a lengthy European tour throughout February and March.

'Vuur van Verzet' is the title of the album and it's packed with marvelous riff power, bombastic ensembles and folkloric tunes. 'Vuur van Verzet' translated to 'Fire Of Resistance'.

The band tells us:

"Friends- we are excited to announce our long-awaited new album, 'Vuur van Verzet'. An album that catapults you to a battlefield where a failing Roman empire is retreating and Germanic tribes are on the rise to claim back what is theirs.

"It will guide you through the great migrations and tell the tale of early traditions, gods and nature.

"We've fitted these stories in eleven songs that emphasize the characteristic Heidevolk sound but also underline the progression of our songwriting. Fast Metal riffing combined with a our trademark dual male vocals, a twenty-four piece male choir, various folk musicians, a string ensemble and the raw guest vocals of Primordial's Nemtheanga make 'Vuur van Verzet' an album that shows its teeth... in a bombastic way.

"Join us - the Pagan Metal Brotherhood is on the rise!"

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.
