“Dæmonarchrist - Dæmon est Devs Inversvs” is the title of the newest release of the memorable black metal Sicilian band, HERETICAL. Produced by Fabio Monaco (Schizo) and recorded at Sound Empathy Studio (Stockholm), this album represents the return to the scene, after some years of complete discographic silence and a changed line-up : Nefarius - Vocals, Azmeroth - Guitars & Bass, Orias (ex-Aposthate) - Keyboards & Vocals, Arymon (aka Dario Casabona Schizo, Brisen, Zora, ex-Sinoath) - Drums. They, also, confirmed the presence of the singer Gianluca Becuzzi, as a special guest from Limbo, the legendary electro-dark band from Florence.

At the moment HERETICAL is dealing with several recording labels, which seem to be seriously interested in producing their latest, black chapter.
New information and other news will be published soon.

Legendary female metal icon LITA FORD has confirmed the release dates for her new album "Living Like A Runaway".  The album will be released June 15th in Germany, June 18th in Europe and June 19th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer.  The album will be available in four configurations: a gatefold LP, limited edition Digipak incl. bonus tracks, standard CD and digital download.

LITA gave an update on "Living Like a Runaway": “This CD is truly a dream come true.  It took me one year to write this CD along with Producer Gary Hoey and song writing Partner Michael Dan Ehming . We have dumped out hearts and souls into this amazing CD.  Along with a lot of tears, pain, heartache, laughter, ripping out hair, going hungry, losing sleep and a lot of frequent flyer miles.  Living Like a Runaway, is like being able to walk through fire and coming out the other side unscathed.”

Coinciding with the album’s release, LITA is hitting the road in the USA this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the “Rock of Ages Tour”.  The dates for the first leg of the tour have been announced on the website and more dates are expected to be announced soon.

LITA is looking forward to the tour and getting to play the new songs live : “We are honored with this awesome tour and being able to play with these brilliant musicians.  So strap in tight, it’s going to be one powerful journey.”

Best known for her work with The Runaways and her solo career, featuring hit singles “Kiss Me Deadly” and the Billboard charting duet “Close My Eyes Forever” with Ozzy Osbourne, LITA is ready to make a return to the throne as the queen of metal !
