BROCAS HELM, the Epic / Heavy Metal pioneers from San Francisco, California needs no introduction. They were one of those bands that continued to release demo tapes between their albums.

Those tapes made quite an impact through the years thanks to the great song versions they featured -different than the ones on the full lengths-. “Do you have any BROCAS HELM demo?” was a quite common request back on the tape trading days.

Arkeyn Steel Records presents a compilation featuring all the legendary demos that the band has released. “Demo 1”, “Black Death”, “Helm’s Deep” demos and “Ghost Story” cassette EP are considered as absolute classics and are presented for the first time on CD together with the material of the rare as hell “Time of the Dark” Promo 90 tape.

Yes this mystical and obscure and at the same powerful and pounding sound of this mighty band is here in its full glory! Songs that are trademarks for the band’s saga can be heard here on their demo versions, versions that carry a very special touch of full force steel.

Everything has been remastered from scratch by Kostas Scandalis at Infinity Studio (Thessaloniki, Greece) for the best audio quality. A great set of never before seen photos is presented on the booklet, together with the complete lyrics. The artwork is developed by Kostas Athanasoglou.

Get ready for the ultimate Epic / Heavy Metal experience, a journey to the age of sword and steel, guided by the great BROCAS HELM.

Release date: May 31st – Pre orders are now open.

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones.

WARLORD: The legend of William J Tsamis lives – Interview and...

To tell you the truth I was a little bit skeptical when I first learned about the Warlord tribute project set by drummer and founding member Mark Zonder and singer Giles Lavery to honor the music and memory of founder guitarist William J Tsamis who unfortunately passed away back in 2021. I was looking at the facts very closely, reading announcements about forthcoming live shows, new line up and a new album. The response from the fans was massive including both positive and negative (or very negative) comments about the above facts. "How can Warlord exist without Bill Tsamis?", they were asking. One afternoon I got a call from Giles Lavery himself asking me if I wanted to do an advance review of the forthcoming Warlord album. I replied positively still being in this skeptical mood. It all went away after the first listen... William J Tsamis was there. His music, his legend, his compositions, evolved into complete songs. In total excitement I texted Giles a single message "Bill is alive". The very next evening found Mark, Giles and I talking about the album, about Bill, about the music and the legacy. It was late at night when we ended the call. I asked them if I can publish our conversation and they got no problem. So here it is again: Me talking with Warlord. The usual stuff I am doing the last 25 years for various reasons. But this time I would not call this conversation an interview. To my eyes this is a big ethical, artistic and soulful statement, by some people who want to keep the Dream, alive.
