With one song of heavy metal legend U.D.O. and one of the new barbarians in the power metal forest Brothers Of Metal, this split-vinyl is a no-brainer for true heavy metal fans! Superbly forged these tracks are united by Fire, Blood and Steel!
“Blood On Fire” is taken from U.D.O.’s current album “Steelfactory” which was strongly influenced by the early masterpieces of Udo Dirkschneider’s former band Accept. That being said, let’s be clear that “Steelfactory” is not a cheap copycat, but fully embraces and honors their simplistic straightness and anthemic style, which already makes it a timeless record and an impressive statement by an artist who has already build style-defining life’s work long ago.
“Fire Blood And Steel” on the other hand is taken from the debut album of the Swedish power/heavy metal band Brothers Of Metal, who already made impressive achievements in their young career. “Prophecy Of Ragnarök” was first self-released digitally and gained an impressive amount of attention in very short time, without even
being promoted, which resulted in several million streams across digital platforms, before the band signed with AFM.
With their fresh, powerful and anthemic songwriting the eight Swedes already deliver finest heavy/power metal with a touch of folk and fulfill highest quality expectations. Because both of these impressive works compliment each other not only stylistically but also thematically, they will now be perpetuated in clear red vinyl. To top this package of and make it even more exclusive this split-vinyl will be the first release on AFM to be available as a “sawblade” shape vinyl.
