A FORGOTTEN MELODIC DEATH METAL JEWEL!
It was exactly 20 years ago that the German melodic death metal band BATTLESWORD released their acclaimed full-length debut "Failing In Triumph". A band that became an institution in the German underground in the course of the next few years, and with a further three albums has consolidated this status to this day. Already in 2003 it was the distinctive mix of melodic death metal and Scandinavian old school that characterises the band's style to this day. The fact that comparisons to "German Amon Amarth" were already being made at that time accompanies the band to this day.
"Failing In Triumph" has not been available anywhere for many years, which is also due to the fact that the label at the time went out of business shortly after the album's release. After their successful albums "And Death Cometh Upon Us" (2019) and "Towards The Unknown" (2022) and not least because of the 20th anniversary of their debut, it is time to re-release it in 2023 and finally make it accessible to a larger audience.
"Failing In Triumph" is a timeless testimony to the beginning of their career and has lost none of its charm even 20 years later! The entire artwork of the re-release has been redesigned!
