Well, this band released one of my favorite power metal debuts of recent times with Cold Moon Over Babylon back in 2011, and then disappeared for six years. This year, supposedly, they're coming back with this monster of an album: http://www.vulvagun.com/painfulroad.html

These guys really are quite impressive, going back now... they write super involved, complex stuff and the music is heavy, ritualistic and atmospheric, with great Dickinson/breed-esque vocals. It's really just on overdrive all the time and they're super committed to their vision. There's really not much else like this band - they're just one of those underground metal gems that put a lot of work into what they do.

Check out these songs from the debut and then go hear the whole damn thing.

This year's been really, really mediocre so far. Here's to hoping this album picks up the pace a little bit.

Hey Empyreal,
We think the album will be released in April or early May at the latest. Pre-orders will start in a week or two (I think a digital download is inclusive of CD orders, with a bonus track).
6 years is a long time - lots of false starts (scrapped almost an entire album's worth of material), hiccups, challenges, remixes (3 times), other projects and striving for as close as we can get to our idea of perfection. I hope it's worth the wait. Can't believe it's finally done to be honest! Masters were given over to the record co. this morning. Not long now!
Thanks, as always, for your support. I really appreciate it.
Cheers.
Wayne

That sounds great man. Sounds like you put a lot of work into it and that's always better than rushing things out, I'm sure you agree. Can't wait to hear it. The song titles are already badass.

I really dig the music, but can't stand the production. The guitar tone is thin and weak and the drums sound like a child's toy being tapped with feathers. They're clearly talented but the wimpy sound is a deal breaker.

Vulvagun? Seriously? I wonder, when we hear about Peniscannon or Pussyrocket.
