The first preview track from Black Tower's debut "The Secret Fire" is streaming on Decibel's site. This is "Death March": http://decibelmagazine.com/blog/2015/3/31/maiden-meets-middle-earth-exclusive-black-tower-video-premiere

The band is a blend of NWOBHM, punk (especially the melodic kind pioneered by Bad Religion), and even a little black metal. It's proudly geeky music, with lyrics based on J.R.R. Tolkien. The CD will be out from Unspeakable Axe on June 2, bearing art (above) by Danille Gauvin; LP will be handled by No Idea Records around the same time.

This preview track is damn cool. Despite the relatively dark melodicism and tone of the song overall it still conveys that youthful vigor that I dig in a lot of the NWoBHM classics from that genre's golden age. These guys (and gal) have charm.

Confusing art and logo aside (looks like fantasy crust mall thrash??) how can it be NWOBHM if they're Canadian?

Will check it out later...hoping it sounds a little like the first English Dogs lp.

Honestly I'm not sure what to liken it to. It doesn't sound a ton like anything else that I usually listen to. The vocals are a little Witchfinder General by way of modern punk rock, with explicitly black metal aspects; the music is somewhere between NWO(?)HM and punk as well. All I know is that I can't get it out of my head, so I figured I better release it.

That's the best reason to release things!
