The Czech Republic's Sebastien has gone through many trials, including band name and personnel changes over 10 years, to get to their release of their debut album Tears of White Roses. Yet with the strength of label Escape Music behind them and the enthusiastic support of Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween), Sebastien should be on the cusp of greatness. A strong supporting cast in the studio doesn't hurt either. Participants include Amanda Somerville (Avantasia, Aina, Kiske/Somerville), Apollo Papathanasio (Firewind, Spiritual Beggars), Doogie White (Cornerstone, ex-Rainbow, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), Fabio Lione (Rhapsody Of Fire, Vision Divine), Mike DiMeo (The Lizards, ex-Riot, ex-Masterplan), Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween), and Tore Moren (Jorn).

11th Studio Album from the German Heavy Power Metal Band. If you are talking about today’s top European heavy metal acts, then the discussion will head most certainly involve Germany’s Primal Fear. Former Gamma Ray vocalist Ralf Scheepers and bassist/vocalist Mat Sinner, two of the most respected German metal musicians, founded the band in late 1997. With ten studio albums released, two live releases and a Best Of compilation, Primal Fear are certainly one of the most beloved and respected Heavy Metal bands around the globe. Their last studio album “Delivering The Black” was their highest chart entry in Germany at Position 13 and charted in 8 other countries, incl. the US Billboard Heatseeker charts on Pos. 16.
