"Return From The Shadows" is a perfect album for fans of bands like Theocracy, Sonata Arctica and Stratovarius!

16.08.2016 - THEOCRACY: NEW ALBUM "GHOST SHIP" ANNOUNCED
The Athens, Georgia-based melodic metal band THEOCRACY will release their new album "Ghost Ship" on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records. Information on different editions and formats will be announced soon.

With Ghost Ship, Theocracy perfects the lively and fully-realized sound of As the World Bleeds, delivering 10 muscular and streamlined tracks that never lose focus and combine for one memorable journey. You like midtempo singalong anthems? Try the “Ghost Ship” title track. Thrashy rhythms and intensity? “The Wonder of It All” should be to your liking. Emotional ballads with huge melodic hooks? Go “Around the World and Back.” Or if you prefer epic, progressive tracks that do all these things and more, 10-minute album closer “Easter” is sure to be a favorite. Each song on Ghost Ship stands alone and has a unique signature, but every moment sounds unmistakably like Theocracy.

“So many kids were coming up to us after shows and telling us their stories,” says Theocracy vocalist Matt Smith. “A lot of them were searching for purpose and a place to fit in, and having grown up as an awkward and unpopular kid myself, their words really stuck with me. I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were: fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through—the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world—end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and ‘Castaway.’”

"Ghost Ship" track listing
01. Paper Tiger
02. Ghost Ship
03. The Wonder Of It All
04. Wishing Well
05. Around the World and Back
06. Stir the Embers
07. A Call To Arms
08. Currency In A Bankrupt World
09. Castaway
10. Easter

Ulterium Records will release a LP edition of the latest SIGNUM REGIS album "Chapter IV: The Reckoning". The LP will be strictly limited to 300 copies and the release date is set to June 3rd.

Ronnie König of Signum Regis comments:
"This release is not just about making the CD available on a different format. The album Chapter IV: The Reckoning was remixed and remastered specially for the vinyl release in order to maximize the listener experience. For the manufacturing, we used 24-bit, less compressed sound, which is more dynamic and pleasant for listening. Since the mix is also a bit different, fans might hear some nuances, that they haven't heard before. I believe, that those who liked the CD will love the LP."

"Chapter IV: The Reckoning" LP track listing:

Side A
01. Quitters Never Win
02. The Voice In The Wilderness
03. The Magi
04. The Secret Of The Sea
05. When Freedom Fails

Side B
01. Lost And Found

20.04.2016 - PROJECT AEGIS RELEASES "ANGEL IN THE ASHES" CHARITY SINGLE [FEAT. MEMBERS OF THEOCRACY, VANDROYA, ROB ROCK, BLACK FATE, LEAH]
Ulterium Records is proud to announce the release of "Angel In the Ashes", an all-star charity track for sale with 100% of the income going to feed homeless and refugee families in Greece. The song is being released under the banner Project Aegis, and was composed by Theocracy songwriter and vocalist Matt Smith. You can watch a studio video with the track below.

Video link: https://youtu.be/A3BLEFkQGpg

"Angel In the Ashes" features vocals by Rob Rock (Solo, Impellitteri), Daísa Munhoz (Vandroya, Soulspell), Vasilis Georgiou (Sunburst, Black Fate), Leah McHenry (LEAH) and Smith, as well as a guitar solo by Gus Drax (Sunburst, Black Fate). The artwork was created by Markus Sigfridsson (Darkwater, Harmony).

Project Aegis previously released the charity single "Collide and Spark" in 2014, the proceeds from which went to feed the homeless in the Nashville, Tenn., area of the U.S.

"I've been wanting to do another charity single since we had such a great experience the first time around," says Smith. "The challenge was finding the time and the appropriate cause, as well as putting together a lineup worthy of the caliber of talent we had on the last song. I think we did it!"

"The song is about someone who decides to take that first step to help a person in a dark or dangerous situation. I was talking to some friends of mine who live in Greece, and every weekend they help feed the huge number of poor, homeless and refugee families in that area. It's a massive need, and the dollar you spend on this song can make a huge difference in providing a hot meal or a blanket for someone. It's a very worthy cause, and everyone involved in the track freely gave their time and talent to make this happen. We hope you enjoy it!"
