Seigmen’s unique ability to deliver mesmerizing concert experiences, which varies for each show without losing any of its melancholic glory, was probably what defined the bands status. By utilizing the use of visual effects, an unconventional image as well as a near theatrical approach to their live performance, they raised the bar considerably in regards to live shows in Norway. Even though the band has not released an album in 18 years, they have been performing on occasion after the bands departure in 1999. Among them being their show in “The Valley of Death” in front of over 5000 devoted fans in 2005, not to mention their two sold out shows in the Oslo Opera in 2008. Recently the band has done a string of shows celebrating their 20th anniversary of the album “Total” in Støperiet in Tønsberg.
It all ended in three magical and crowd filled nights, with over 2100 tickets sold stating a record for Støperiet. The concerts got a baffling 10/10 review from Musikknyheter.no stating that Seigmen was on verge of “…defining their position as heroes in their hometown of Tønsberg and as Norway’s greatest live band.” Hissig gave them 100%, calling their show “A legendary concert”, and stated that: “I have never seen Seigmen better. As a matter of fact I have probably never seen a better Norwegian band.”
The new studio album from Seigmen will be released in the spring of 2015 via Indie Recordings. We cannot wait!

Die So Fluid toured with Mindless Self Indulgence some years back in the US and the road has seen us mainly in Europe since then. Now, finally, the stars have aligned with the release of our new album, The Opposites Of Light, for us to embark on another US tour with Wednesday 13 and Eyes Set To Kill. We're grateful for the opportunity to get out and kill it in great company, connect with new fans and reconnect with old! It also means a lot to me personally, having relocated from the UK to the US, to perform here, having created an album very much inspired by that the impact of that adventure on my life. This is just the beginning of a much bigger adventure! - Grog

The band toured 2013’s »All Hell Breaks Loose« for a year – playing across the globe. October 2014 saw them gather in Nashville, TN and enter the studio with heralded producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, ALICE IN CHAINS, MASTODON) to start recording the follow up. The result is »The Killer Instinct«. »The Killer Instinct« will be released in different formats: CD, Limited 2-CD Digibook, Limited Gatefold Black Vinyl and Limited Gatefold Clear Vinyl (available for mail orders only).
Front man Ricky Warwick comments on the new single and lyric video for ‘The Killer Instinct,’ "The video is about strength, endurance and overcoming adversity. It's about belief, love and compassion in a world of doubt."
Four-and-a-half years in the making, Beyond The Red Mirror was recorded at Twilight Hall Studio in Grefrath, Germany and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (SAXON, HAMMERFALL, HELLOWEEN). The album’s spellbinding tracks showcase BLIND GUARDIAN’s long-awaited collaborative work with three different classical choirs from Prague, Budapest and Boston, plus two grand orchestras - each featuring 90 musicians! An endeavour demanding that attention be paid to the lyrics as much as to the music, Beyond The Red Mirror is a desperate search for truth, an exploration of the relativities of good and evil, a testimony of the consequences of lost opportunities, a glimpse into a distant universe’s dystopian society, a story about a prophecy, a promise of revolution, a plot for revenge and a miracle machine with powers far beyond what mere mortals could have dreamed possible.
Beyond The Red Mirror will be out in the UK on the 2nd of Feb 2015 via Nuclear Blast.
