TIDES FROM NEBULA – Reveal first track from their new album!

Oct. 7th (EUR) / Nov 5th (N.America) will see the release of the third album from Tides From Nebula, which is entitled “Eternal Movement“. The first song to be revealed from the album is ‘Only With Presence’.

Of the track Maciej Karbowski, guitars and keyboards says “It all started with a twisted guitar riff. I took it to the rest of the band, we played around with it for a while and out it came. We use a synthesizer bass for the first time, we loved the sound, so tasty! It’s definitely one of the best quicker tracks on the album, I love the way it builds to something with real intensity.”.
Przemek Węgłowski, the bassist in the band came up with the title of the track inspired by the book “The Power Of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.

In addition to the first new track stream the band has also revealed the tracklisting for “Eternal Movement”:

1. Laughter of Gods
2. Only With Presence
3. Satori
4. Emptiness of Yours and Mine
5. Hollow Lights
6. Now Run

Michael Kiske returns to PLACE VENDOME with another Melodic Rock masterpiece : “Thunder in the Distance”

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the much anticipated third album from Place Vendome entitled “Thunder in the Distance” on November 1st in Europe and November 5th in North America. Place Vendome is the Melodic Rock project featuring Unisonic and former Helloween singer Michael Kiske on all lead vocals and production from Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69). Place Vendomestarted in 2004 when Kiske, following a self imposed exile from the rock and metal scene which lasted a few years after his departure from Helloween and solo career, accepted in 2004 to be part of a Melodic Rock oriented concept put together by Frontiers Records’ President Serafino Perugino. The resultingPlace Vendome debut album brought Kiske back to a more straight ahead and Rock sound, still very accessible and melodic and far from the Heavy Metal stereotypes of blood, violence and hate which Kiske never had anything to do with. He collaborated for the first time with Pink Cream 69’s Dennis Ward, Kosta Zafiriou and Uwe Reitenauer with Gunther Werno (Vandenplas) on keyboards. In a quite ironic twist of fate Michael found himself to work with members of Pink Cream 69, when the band’s original singer Andy Deris took his place in Helloween when he left.
