Frontiers Music Srl will release “Now Or Never”, the debut album from BENEDICTUM singer Veronica Freeman‘s solo project THE V, on July 3 in Europe and July 10 in North America.
A new EPK (Electronic Press Kit) for the CD is available below.
THE V marks a major step out of Veronica’s comfort zone, since it delves into a definite melodic hard rock vibe.
An impressive array of talent has stepped up to assist THE V in creating her solo project on many levels. The list includes Pete Wells, Aric Avina and Rikard Stjernquist of BENEDICTUM, Michael Sweet (STRYPER), Garry Bordonaro (THE RODS), Jeff Pilson (DOKKEN, FOREIGNER), Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X), Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH), Leather Leone (CHASTAIN), Jerry Dixon (WARRANT), Jim Durkin (DARK ANGEL), Mick Tucker (TANK), Jordan Ziff (AGE OF EVIL), Derek Kerswill (UNEARTH, KINGDOM OF SORROW), Peter Tentindo (VENUS MARS PROJECT), John Herrera, Ryan Greene, Kenny Lewis, Meliesa McDonell, Michael Harris , Mel Brown and John O’Boyle.
Veronica comments: “I had a lot of input and encouragement from Frontiers to try and stretch myself with different musical styles and approaches. It was great to be able to work with Pete Wells writing some of these songs too. So it was a no-brainer to accept their proposal for a solo album. I am a bit nervous and beyond excited!”
Says Frontiers in a press release: “Be prepared! If you thought Veronica was just a heavy metal amazon, you’re going to be proven dead wrong! This is a massive melodic hard rock record with some great lead vocals which show a lot of the original influences that brought THE V to be one of the most well know and recognized voices in the current metal scene!”

Montreal-based five-piece metal outfit THE AGONIST are set to release THE EYE OF PROVIDENCE on Tuesday February 24th in North America. The band has joined forces with Revolver Magazine to bring you a stream of the entire album!
Wrapped in an abstract, distress-filled fantasy the album presents their impressions about our world, our society, ourselves – the reason we are here and ultimately the ending we are headed. Dreamgrave`s Presentiment album is nothing less than a masterpiece.
We’ve got news for you folks, Servant To The Fire is one of the most intense, brutal, volatile, [insert additional adjectives here], releases you will have heard all year.
Those not prepared for it will get a fist in the face and a boot up the ass upon first listens to the jarring sounds of Cyhyraeth. Unrelenting aggression through thick ‘n’ rubbery bass lines, guitars that slash and stab in several directions at once (yet somehow come together to form lethal structures), and drumming that will crumble your home’s foundation.
Images of violence are conjured through the band’s sonic vitriol at every turn; a recurring image one of a torrential downpour of jagged guitar shards and severed limbs. You will not walk away unscathed from sessions spent with the album.
London-grown female-fronted metal machinists, EVYLTYDE, are excited to announce their highly anticipated self-titled debut album will be officially released on 19th January 2015 and that it is currently available to pre-order NOW from iTunes, Amazon MP3 and directly from the bands website (www.evyltyde.com).
