We didn´t post something in a long time, but not because we were sitting on our lazy asses doing nothing. No, there are a lot of news from the Paragon Crew. First we have signed a contract with a new label. Details about that will follow soon when it is announced officially.
Furthermore we are preparing our setlist for our first little tour in Spain which will start October the fourth. You will find the dates here.
And finally we spent a lot of time recording demos with our new songs and arranging all the stuff in our rehearsal room. More details about that also soon, but what we can tell now: This will be one of the heaviest Paragon albums ever!
Yesterday at about 19:00 we finally arrived back home in our home Hamburg after a a 36 hour back and forth drive to the Skull Fest III in Colmar / France. We only slept about six hours, drove about 16 hours and were very tired and exhausted but very happy at the same time. we are almost doing this for 30 years now, and it showed us why we still like to do such adventures: Music keeps people alive, makes friendships, knows no boundaries, hate or animosities. There were people from France, Germany, Poland, Greece and even the UK. And all had a good time and enjoyed the evening. We met so many old and new friends and whish we had more time to talk to all of them a lot more.
For now we want to thank Rikki and Team Headbang for inviting us, the great crew at the Le Grillen especially Stephane Azam for the great sound, Tity and Fanny our beautiful merch girls, the Bands, Dexter Ward, Tantation, Crystal Viper and even they didn´t play Lonewolf, two great photographers Nikolas Bremm and Eric Munck and most of all you the fans who made this such a great evening. We will remember this show for a long time and hope it will not take so long before we come back to France again. Merci beaucup!
PS: And of course also a big „Salut“ to our brother Jens Börner. We hope you will have speedy recovery!!!
Not too many days and we will finally return to France to play the mighty Skull Crush at the Le Grillen in Colmar. So if you still have no ticket so far get it now here because the place will be packed!
Happy New Year everybody!
We are now in full songwriting mode, so not to many news except some show announcements and this here:
We just checked all the demos we have recorded until now and we are more than happy with the results so far. There are seven songs we already sent to Buschi so he can write his vocals and melody lines to as well as one more rough idea for something like „The Devil´s Waitingroom II“. If you want an idea what the stuff is like imagine a mix of our classic Heavy and US Metal influences like Judas Priest and Metal Church, mixed with our thrashier edge like Overkill and Exodus. This is real Power Metal like it used to be and not the whimpy keyboard infested Pop Music which is labeled as Metal these days. We are still working on more stuff right now and hope to have about 10-12 tunes ready in the first quarter of 2018. So stay tuned!!!
Sorry for not posting news for a longer time! We had a lot of shows and were very busy. So now have great news. For a longer time we tried to play festivals in France, but were not successful in setting up anything. So today we noticed that the headliners of the SKULL CRUSH FEST III won´t play and as we are friends with Rikki of our brothers from LONEWOLF, we spontaneously wrote him and he booked us right away, even though we were not supposed to play before 2019. Anyhow – now we are finally back to France and really looking forward to kick your ass!!! Metal is the Law!
