The Ordeal unleash their second album “Descent From Hell” on 29 October 2012 through the Dust On the Tracks label. Featuring eleven stunning tracks, including their awesome cover version of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Here Comes The Flood’, The Ordeal’s vintage Metal influences shine through. Underscored by burning guitar riffs and virtuoso solos laid over a pounding rhythm section, “Descent From Hell” features superb lyrics and an intoxicating atmosphere that more than lives up to the early promise shown on their debut “Kings Of Pain”.
Knock Out Kaine release their debut album, “House Of Sins” on 10 September 2012. The album is a febrile brew of classic and contemporary rock, big anthems and fist-pumping life-affirming smashes. Classic Rock Presents AOR said, “Bristling with energy, we predict a big future for Knock Out Kaine!” Having been voted Kerrang’s ‘Best Unsigned Act’ in 2008, the band headed out onto the road to learn how to perfect the delivery of a kickass rock show. Mission accomplished.
With both bands on amazing form and with material from the new albums already garnering serious critical praise, now is the time to catch one of these live shows. Don’t miss The Ordeal and Knock Out Kaine on the road in October.
