About The Veer Union
Talking about “I’m So Sick”, the band’s Crispin Earl says: “I remember the first time hearing this song when I was just starting The Veer Union - it just blew me away! Lacey Sturm's voice was like nothing I had ever heard in Rock/Nu-metal. I have always been interested in songs that can stand the test of time and there is no question in my mind that "I'm So Sick" is one of those songs!"
The Vancouver, Canada based band has collectively sold over 130,000 Albums and also reached over 40 Million Streams Worldwide.
TVU has placed eight singles in the Top 40 of the Billboard Rock Radio Charts and averages over 100 live shows per year.
TVU released their first independent album titled “Time To Break The Spell” in 2006 under the name Veer. The band gained notoriety after winning a spot in the CFOX 99.3 Vancouver
"Seeds" radio competition in 2007. In 2008 the band updated their name to The Veer Union and landed a record deal with Universal Records. The critically acclaimed 1st single "Seasons" charted Top 10 at Active Rock Radio in the US and Canada. 2009 saw the release of their Universal distributed album "Against The Grain", which included "Seasons", "Youth of Yesterday", and "Darker Side of Me". In 2012 the band released their self-produced 3rd album (the 2nd as The Veer Union) "Divide the Blackened Sky" which yielded the Active Rock hit "Bitter End".
In late 2013 TVU released the "Life Support, Vol. 1" EP as part of a Kickstarter campaign.
In 2016 they released the 4th full length LP “Decade” to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their 1st release. With the success of the album “Decade” and the single “Defying Gravity” – which chronicled Earl's battle with depression, the band continued to move forward, and the result was the "Decade 2: Rock & Acoustic" album in 2018. The single & video "Living Not Alive" from Decade 2 was nominated for "Best Independent Video" by the Hollywood Music In Media Awards, and has over 1 million views on both YouTube and Facebook.
To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Chester Bennington's death, The Veer Union paid tribute to the late Linkin Park vocalist with an acoustic cover of "Numb", also from the
Decade 2 album. The video has more than 200,000 views on YouTube and over 750,000 on Facebook.
The band plans to tour North America and release new music in the 2nd half of 2020, including select festival dates.

Erdling was formed in 2014 by singer Neill Devin and drummer Niklas Kahl, as a promising, new brand Dark Rock band, to make the music heaven tremble.
Reinforced by guitarist Neno Knuckle and Marco Politi on bass, Erdling are familiar to the scene, in their rhythmic battle of feelings.
Fearlessly Erdling spread over their full realms and cross frontiers while still standing true to their traits.
Anthems such as the first single "Wir sind Midgard" or "Wölfe der Nacht" feat. Chis Pohl of Blutengel distinctively sound like Erdling.
But the roots of the World Ash are nocturnal: The band shows a wild and heathen side in Dark Metal songs such as "Grendel" or "Im Namen der Krähe" feat. Robse Dahn of Equilibrium.
This side just fits to the artwork showing Yggdrasil as it looses its leaves in the storm.
Frontman and Songwriter Neill comments: "Our wealth makes us pushing away many things. Death surprises and disturbs us. It is time to return to the basic patterns of earth and life where death is part of existence."
"Yggdrasil" will be released as 2-CD Digipak as well as as Die-Hard Wooden Box. This Wooden Box contains the Digipak and the additional bonus CD „2015-2020 – "Die Demos" featuring unreleased demo versions. And the World Ash shall be gifted as well: With a small bag of ash seeds, Erdling fans can give back something to nature and set a small hope against the destruction of the earth. A magic refreshing tree covers the smell of the industrialized world with a breeze from the woods. Additionally a recycling pen and a hand numbered certificate of authenticity complete a boxset, that is more than package – it is expression of an album that aims to turn the listener to an active part of a better world.
Der Erdling und der Weltenbaum – das ist nicht nur dem Namen nach eine untrennbare Einheit. Yggdrasil war vom ersten Tag an Teil des Bandemblems. Nun hat die Band ihrer Inspiration ihr viertes und bislang härtestes Album gewidmet und sich dabei so nah ans Feuer gewagt wie nie zuvor. Vorsicht: Verbrennungsgefahr!
Erdling reizen ihr gesamtes Spektrum aus, betreten furchtlos neues Terrain – und bleiben doch ihren Stärken treu. Hymnen wie die erste Single „Wir sind Midgard“ oder „Wölfe der Nacht“ feat. Chris Pohl von Blutengel klingen unverkennbar nach Erdling. Doch die Wurzeln des Weltenbaum sind dunkel: Dark Metal Songs wie „Grendel“ oder „Im Namen der Krähe“ feat. Robse Dahn von Equilibrium zeigen die Band von einer finsteren, wilden und heidnischen Seite. Das gilt auch für das brilliant in Szene gesetzte Artwork, auf dem Yggdrasil im Sturm sein Blätterkleid verliert. Frontmann und Songwriter Neill sagt dazu: "Viele Dinge werden in unserer Wohlstandsgesellschaft verdrängt. Der Tod überrascht und verstört uns. Es ist Zeit für eine Rückbesinnung auf die Grundzyklen der Erde und des Lebens, in denen der Tod zum Dasein dazu gehört.“
„Yggdrasil“ erscheint als als 2-CD Digipak sowie als streng limitierte Die-Hard-Holzbox. Diese Holzbox enthält neben dem Digipak die exklusive Bonus CD „2015-2020 – Die Demos“ mit unveröffentlichten Demoversionen. Doch auch die Weltenesche soll ihr Geschenk erhalten: Mit einem Tütchen Eschen-Saatgut können Erdling-Fans der Natur etwas zurückgeben und der Zerstörung der Erde einen Funken Hoffnung entgegenstellen. Ein Duftbaum überdeckt den Gestank der industrialisierten Welt mit dem Aroma des Waldes. Ein Recycling Kugelschreiber und ein handnummeriertes Echtheitszertifikat vervollständigen ein Boxset, das mehr ist als nur eine Verpackung – es ist Ausdruck eines Albums, das den Hörer zum aktiven Teil einer besseren Welt machen will.

About The Album
German roaring Heavy Metal beast MYSTIC PROPHECY announce the release of their new album “METAL DIVISION”, out on January 10, 2020! After almost 20 years and 10 studio albums
MYSTIC PROPHECY finally found in ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records their rightful home, and this long overdue partnership is out for blood! After the success of their latest offering
“Monuments Uncovered”, one of Germany’s finest heavy metal machine, MYSTIC PROPHECY return with a new ground-breaking Heavy Metal masterpiece filled with massive riffs, anthemic hooks and furious melodies! “Metal Division” is definitely the band’s heaviest and best work to date and will elevate MYSTIC PROPHECY where they belong: to the HEAVY METAL pantheon!
Pounding war drums start off this ultra-heavy bruiser, reminiscent of legendary anthems from the metal gods themselves. A call to arms to all heavy metal fans, fighting as one in the
“Metal Division”, destroying all non-believers! Coming out the speakers like hell on wheels, “Eye To Eye” takes no prisoners. A monstrous guitar riff is taken over the boiling point by Hanno Kerstan’s driving double bass drumming. Pure JUDAS PRIEST “Painkiller” style heavy metal! A driving, anthemic rocker, “Hail To The King” will have you raising your fist and singing along
with the infectious chorus. An ode to Alexander The Great. A track HAMMERFALL would be proud to call their own! Destined to be a fan favourite in concert. Some nice melodic guitar work and Lia’s passionate vocals are offered on "Here Comes The Winter". Perhaps this is something that could be described as EVERGEY on steroids! “Curse Of The Slayer” features crushingly heavy riffs juxtaposed with a very melodic & catchy chorus. This song reminds the listener of POWERWOLF at their finest moments — but much heavier! With a classic VAN HALEN-like shuffle meets PANTERA that sinks its teeth into your brain, this “Dracula” will have you begging for more bites! The lusty groove will bleed you dry! A song that shows a new face of MYSTIC PROPHECY yet preserving their unique approach on Heavy Metal aesthetic. On “Together We Fall” the focal point is shredding guitar riffs and solos courtesy of MYSTIC PROPHECY’s dynamic guitar duo, Evan K and Markus Pohl. Fans of ARCH ENEMY will love this track! “Die With the Hammer” brings Lia’s vocal range to the spotlight, as the song begins with bluesy style singing accompanied only by clean guitar, then he growls to introduce the rest of the song, with aggressive vocals in the verse and chorus sounding like a power metal version of all the Bay Area Thrash legends combined. “Reincarnation” is the song that epitomizes MYSTIC PROPHECY’s sound: very heavy, yet very melodic in the vein of DIO, with an instantly memorable chorus. Featuring a galloping riff in the classic Jon Schaffer / ICED EARTH style, “Mirror Of A Broken Heart” has some of Lia’s most personal, intense lyrics — with a vocal performance to match. Sounding like a more melodic TESTAMENT in
“Victory Is Mine”, if getting the metal legions to bang their head was the goal of this song, then MYSTIC PROPHECY have scored a major “victory”.
In fact every song is such a headbanger that the band should be required to include a neck brace with the album!
