Latest Inner Wound releases
170922: Pyramaze: "Melancholy Beast" re-issue announced
"Melancholy Beast", the classic debut album from PYRAMAZE will be re-issued on CD/digital on November 24th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings. The album was originally released in 2004.

The re-issue includes an extended 20 page booklet that features track commentary and album history written by Pyramaze guitarist and founder Michael Kammeyer. The re-issue also includes the bonus track "The Wizard" that was originally only included on the Japanese edition of the album.

Michael Kammeyer comments:
"Dear fans of Pyramaze and all things metal! It's time for the old to become the new! Our highly praised debut album Melancholy Beast is up for a re-release. Originally released back in 2004, the album has had a good run, but has become increasingly hard to obtain in the stores over the last years, due to obsolete record contracts and label changes. While the new Pyramaze stuff continues to gather new fans around the world, the old album(s) have also become highly coveted by the growing Pyramaze fanbase. Therefore it is with great pride and joy that I can announce the signing for a re-release with Inner Wound Recordings. The album has been updated with track commentary, album history and new band photos inside the booklet. Also for the first time outside of Japan with the bonus track "The Wizard". This should be a real treat for any Pyramaze fan. While I myself am no longer an active member of Pyramaze, I still follow the guys closely as a friend and fan of the new releases. I'm also still handling the business decisions regarding the three first albums. And this release has been in the planning between myself, Pyramaze and Inner Wound Recordings for quite some time. Finally it's a reality, and on behalf of Pyramaze, Inner Wound Recordings and myself I hereby announce that Melancholy Beast 2.0 will be out in Europe and North America on November 24th. Metal greetings, Michael Kammeyer (ex-Pyramaze captain/guitarist)."

"Melancholy Beast" was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Evergrey].

"Heroes In Time" is an impressive debut album filled with melodic and memorable songs, crowned with the strong and emotional vocals by vocalist Emma Bensing as well as a powerful production by Jacob Hansen. The album should be perfect for fans of bands like Beyond The Black, Dynazty and Amaranthe!

170221: MindMaze: "Resolve" details revealed
The US progressive power metal band MINDMAZE will release their new album "Resolve" on April 28th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.

Over the span of 68 minutes of melodic and powerful music ripe with recurring themes, the band takes the listener on a whirlwind journey through the scope of human emotion in hopes they will be able to project their own experiences into these intensely personal lyrics inspired by an amalgam of real-life events.

Resolve reprises the band's ever-present influences from bands like Queensryche, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Savatage, and a mixture of contemporary power metal and melodic rock hooks and songwriting while moving the band further into progressive and theatrical territory with more atypical song structures used to best serve the concept of the album.

The band continues to forge their footprint as one of the most promising and unique female-fronted bands to come along in recent times.

170209: Power Quest signs with Inner Wound Recordings
Inner Wound Recordings are proud to announce the signing of POWER QUEST, one of the premiere melodic power metal bands in the world, to the label. The band will hit the studio in April and the new album is scheduled to be released in October.

Known for their catchy, uplifting sound and superb live shows, PQ are back to deliver their 6th album in conjunction with Inner Wound. Having toured with the likes of Helloween, Angra, Freedom Call and Symphony X to name but a few, the band are ready to take things to the next level.

Steve Williams of Power Quest comments:
I'm really pleased to have sealed the deal with Emil and Inner Wound for the release of the next PQ opus. We were in discussions for a couple of months, during which time the salient points of the deal were already agreed before I recently flew to Gothenburg to sign the agreement in person. In this age of faceless business it was refreshing to do things the old fashioned way. I'm really excited about this collaboration and we have a lot of cool things planned for the next 12 months.

Emil Westerdahl of Inner Wound Recordings comments:
It's a true pleasure to announce the signing of POWER QUEST to the label. During the past few months that Steve and I have been in contact it's become clear that we share the same vision for the band and that POWER QUEST and Inner Wound is a perfect fit. I am really excited about the cooperation and also confident that together we'll be able to take POWER QUEST to the next level.
