Devilfire To Release Debut Album 'Dark Manoeuvres' 6th October





Devilfire Annouce Debut Album Release 



It’s said that some of the greatest bands of our time have been forged on the road, Devilfire is no exception…


Following 10 days of gigging to 2000 capacity sold out venues as special guests to former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen, DEVILFIRE have forged a fiery path into the European Rock N' Roll road. Returning to the UK to a sold out festival crowd at Hard Rock Hell AOR 2017 was the icing on the cake, and the Birmingham based melodic hard rock outfit are ready to conquer the world with their debut album 'DARK MANOEUVRES' this October.

Mixed by acclaimed producer Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine) and co-produced by Romesh and Devilfire frontman Alex Cooper (Shy, Quireboys Spike, Ginger) at Long Wave Studios in Cardiff, 'Dark Manoeuvres' is a mammoth 13-track album. Calling on varied influences with a darker melodic sound, this hook laden, riff filled collection of music has been carefully crafted with passion. 'Dark Manouevres' is set to push rock's boundaries with its honest British roots.

“I try to put my heart on the page, be as open and honest as its all I know", says Cooper, "Dark Manoeuvres is a therapy for me. As an artist all you can do is try to put the listener into your shoes. I feel that is the greatest power of music. It's always what I’ve loved when listening to any music that I emotionally connect with. With this debut album we've taken our time to curate the best possible music we can at this stage, and I honestly believe we've accomplished what we set out to do."


'Dark Manoeuvres' is such an accomplished debut album, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was Devilfire's third, not first full length studio release. From the opening foot stomper 'Ready For War', to the true immediacy of singles 'Waiting For A Rockstar', 'She's Always On The Run', to the swing of 'Tear Me Apart', and passion of closing track 'Somehow', this new album wears its hooks loud n' proud, whilst easily stamping Devilfire's own take on modern rock music.

“The songs on this record are just so good", agrees Romesh Dodangoda, "Devilfire are definitely a band for the future."

Devilfire vocalist Alex Cooper talks about the new album:


"‘Dark Manouevres’ is very much an inside look at my life over the last four years…the good times and bad on the UK rock n’ roll scene. Love, loss, hate, jealousy, arguments, all thrown against a background of excessive drink, drugs, and ego fuelled behaviour. Though not to blow these things out of proportion, it isn't like the dye of Motley Crue in the 1980s. These things are very subtly done nowadays, hence the album title.

I’m an honest person, sometimes too honest, I put my life on the page and I don't care who knows. Turn the page..."

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Spreading The Disease - Voices (Single Review)

'Voices' starts on an effective soft clean vocal intro before the aggressive fierce vocals kick in and features varied vocals throughout keeping it dynamic. The guitar work is hard-hitting especially with ambient and heavy chugging riffs. The delivery and transitions it goes through aided by the vocals add to its frantic vibes which seem appropriate given the nature of the track. This is an intense and killer track which leaves you hungry for the upcoming EP 'Mindcell'.




'Voices' has just been released worldwide through Surgery Records, taken from our forthcoming new EP 'MINDCELL' which is out on April 11th 2019.
