Chaostar release first track and details of forthcoming new album
CHAOSTAR are unveiling the first single of their forthcoming album, ‘The Undivided Light’. The amazing Greek avant-garde explorers will release their fascinating fifth full-length on March 23rd, 2018.
The stunning track, “Stones and Dust” is now streaming below, which can be published immediately. As ‘The Undivided Light’ is a varied album, this song that comes with a small hint of DEAD CAN DANCE gives just one direction among many. More tracks and more musical revelations will follow.
CHAOSTAR vocalist Androniki comments: “Dear all, it is with great pleasure to announce that we are launching the first song “Stones and Dust” from our forthcoming album, ‘The Undivided Light’. Every blessed virtue in this world multiplies and growths when being shared and not constrained. Like wisdom, knowledge, and patience, the flame of light itself can brighten a room, but when being divided and shared can illuminate the entire world’s human intellect. This has been the motivational thinking that flared-up the creation of the new CHAOSTAR album. Our existence consists of dust formed into concrete shapes of hard stones, awaiting to degrade back into the light-weight form of dust and finally to the liberated state of time, light, and space.”

Watch the lyric video for Hellish War’s new version of “Defender Of Metal”
Originally released by Megahard Records in 2001, “Defender Of Metal”, Hellish War’s debut album, is a true declaration of love to heavy metal. Songs like “We Are Living For The Metal”, “The Sign”, “Memories Of A Metal” and the title track became hymns of unconditional devotion to Metal for many fans of the band spread throughout Brazil, the United States, Japan and mainly Europe, where the band has toured twice.
“Defender Of Metal” not only boosted the career of Hellish War internationally, but shaped the group’s musical personality that was enhanced in subsequent works, “Heroes Of Tomorrow” from 2008 and “Keep It Hellish” from 2013. The live album “Live In Germany” (2010) also came packed with classics from the debut and proved the firepower of these tracks among the European audience.
Fifteen years after the release of “Defender Of Metal” – that was also released in Europe by the german record label Pure Steel Records -, Hellish War had to celebrate the date with the fans.
One of the ways was to re-record the title track, now with Bil Martins’ vocals. The vocalist of Hellish War is who even signs the production of this new version. “Defender Of Metal” 2017 version got a new Lyric Video designed by Marcelo Silva (Motion Design) that is already available on the band’s Youtube channel and that you can watch below:
“Defender Of Metal” was also relaunched on all digital platforms:
