Italian metallers Mastercastle return on 19 April 2013 with the red hot new album“On Fire” released through Lion Music.
Home to 9 tracks of melodic heavy metal with neo-classical influences, Mastercastle have been honing their trademark sound since their debut “The Phoenix” (2009) and refining it through “Last Desire” (2010) and “Dangerous Diamonds” (2011). Led by the powerful vocals of Giorgia Gueglio, the virtuoso guitar of Pier Gonella and the driven bass lines of Steve Vawamas, “On Fire” marks the bands first release with one of the metal world’s most respected drummers behind the kit, one John Macaluso(Ark, Yngwie Malmsteen, and James LaBrie). Macaluso’s addition has given the band a kick up the proverbial backside taking their unique brand of metal to an even higher plateau.
On the band’s newest member Pier Gonella comments, “John gave us great energy because from the first time he heard our music he was really impressed. He participated in the composing process of “On Fire” and his vast experience was a great help for the albums production as well”.
