One of the rapidly rising stars of their scene in South America, Semblant is more than ready for the world stage. The band received international praise from the metal community with the release of the album “Lunar Manifesto” (2014), with the singles “What Lies Ahead”, “Dark of the Day,” and “Incinerate” combining for more than 30 million views on YouTube. Now, Semblant are ready for the next phase of their career with the upcoming release of the highly anticipated album “Obscura”.
The band formed in 2006 in Curitiba, Brazil when singer Sergio Mazul and keyboardist J. Augusto joined forces to create music that featured all the dark and aggressive elements they appreciated and loved in metal music. After a few years of changing line-ups, the group established itself with the addition of Mizuho Lin (female vocals), Juliano Ribeiro (guitar), Welyntom “Thor” Sikora (drums), and Johann Piper (bass) to the band.
Vocalist Mizuho Lin says, “It’s an honor to be part of such a traditional label like Frontiers. We’ve been composing and preparing ourselves for at least two years to finally get ‘Obscura’ ready and we’re super excited to begin this new era working together with the label!”
Singer Sergio Mazul adds. “We’re really excited to start this amazing new era of Semblant with Frontiers. Besides my doom, gothic, thrash and death influences, I’m a great enthusiast of all kinds of hard rock and heavy metal, having collected a lot of titles released by the label. They’ve been doing amazing work worldwide with new bands and Semblant will surely figure as a new jolt of energy to Frontiers’ roster, with our dark and more extreme influences in our songs. And we’re sure that Frontiers will make the same for us, taking the band to another level. ‘Obscura’ will strike the world in 2020 and we’re counting the days to introduce our new album to everyone!”
Frontiers is thrilled to welcome Semblant to our rapidly expanding metal roster and to bring their incredible talents to metalheads around the globe.
Catch the band next spring on their European tour!

While KHYMERA started out as an alliance between Italian producer/musician, Daniele Liverani and then KANSAS singer Steve Walsh, it developed into a regular musical project when bassist and producer Dennis Ward (Magnum, ex-Pink Cream 69) entered the fold.
While known as a bassist, Dennis always sang background vocals with his bands, so he was more than ready and willing to take over the lead vocals on the Khymera albums “A New Promise,” “The Greatest Wonder,” and “The Grand Design”. While Khymera has been on hiatus for some time, Dennis is ready to come back with a new album, “Master of Illusions”, which comes about four years after the release of the last album, “The Greatest Wonder”.
Musically, the new album very much follows the logical progression of the musical path that was started when Dennis joined the project. “Master of Illusions” is a strong, extremely melodic release, which showcases the fantastic vocal abilities of Dennis and highlights his great skills as a songwriter and producer.
Khymera still offers one of the most shining examples of what great European melodic rock is all about: crystal clear production, soaring vocals, killer musicianship and songwriting that reminds fans of the heydays of the genre when bands like Giuffria, Icon, and Signal roamed the Earth.
Tracklist: 1. Walk Away 2. The First Time 3. Master Of Illusions 4. The Sun Goes Down 5. Paradise 6. The Rhythm Of My Life 7. Follow The Sun 8. Father To Son 9. After All This Time 10. Victim Of Your Love 11. Let It Happen
Line-up: Vocals and Bass – Dennis Ward Guitars – Michael Klein Keyboards – Eric Ragno Drums – Pete Newdeck
For over four decades, Blue Oyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. BLUE ÖYSTER CULT occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. Now they have partnered up with Frontiers Music Srl to continue their amazing journey!
“We are delighted to be able to bring back the iconic BLUE ÖYSTER CULT with the release of a wealth of musical material that will certainly please all the fans. Hard Rock music would not be what is now without BÖC and Frontiers is their natural “home”. We look forward to a long and fruitful cooperation!” – Serafino Perugino, Frontiers Records President.
“It’s been a long time since BÖC’s last studio album. Our biggest question from fans is ‘when are we going to do some new music?’ So we are ready to take this journey again. Recording with Danny, Richie and Jules should be a great experience as we’ve been touring together for years and Buck and I are looking forward to including them in the creative and recording process, say Eric Bloom.
“The current band is GREAT and has never been recorded other than the live concerts, so we feel now is the time for new songs to be written and recorded. About half of the songs for the new record exist and the rest will be finished during the process,” adds Buck Dharma.
A new studio album is expected to be released from the band in 2020. Fans can also expect to see remastered reissues (some with updated artwork) of four classic BÖC releases including:
1. Cult Classic (originally released in 1994) 2. Heaven Forbid (originally released in 1998) [Not available for North / South America] 3. Curse of the Hidden Mirror originally released in 2001) [Not available for North / South America] 4. A Long Day’s Night (Live CD/DVD and Blu Ray) originally released in 2002 – Blu Ray version to be released for the first time)
Additionally, in 2020 the band will present five new live releases which include:
1. Live show from the iHeart Radio Theater 2012 (40th Anniversary). 2. Live show from Hard Rock Casino Cleveland 2014 3. Live show from Rock of Ages Festival in Germany 2016 4. 40th Anniversary of “Agents of Fortune” shot in L.A. in April 2017 [ “Agents of Fortune” album played front to back] 5. BӦC 45th Anniversary show Live in London June 17th 2017) [includes BÖC first album played in its entirety back to back]
BÖC is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
Upon the release of BÖC’s self-‐titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-‐yet-‐heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC’s canon includes three stone-‐cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “I Love the Night,” “In Thee,””Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” “Black Blade” and “Shooting Shark.”
The intense creative vision of BÖC’s original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino.
