So, we arrived in Milan and checked in our hotel. Still waiting for the folks from Exile and Devine Defilement to arrive. We met Kris from Rock Tour Agency in the flesh and also the driver and sound guy.

Looking forward to play The One in Milan! See you guys out there.

Well, the RÁN horde of chaos is meeting up today in the pittoresk Reykjavik. Last luggage checks, running through the set a last time and make sure everything is ready for transportation.

Tomorrow Rock to Hell will drop on the many streaming services and places like iTunes, Spotify, etc. So keep an eye on that.

Hail,

Tour diary. Day -3

Yes, we’re counting down until our first performance. Yesterday was the last opportunity to rehearse the set and we’re glad to say that we are all set and ready to rock!

Now comes the last bits of planning and preparation for the tour. Instrument maintenance, a last clean and polish, and sorting out merch so you guys can have your mementos after we have rocked you. The new album “Rock to Hell” is being printed as we speak, and we’ll have it ready for you to obtain.

We’re looking forward to meeting you all.

Take care and Hail!

Firestorm!

Firestorm!

Right people, the second promo video has dropped. The RÁN epic called “Firestorm” has been rendered in brutal detail in the way RÁN is supposed the sound. Angry, arrogant, brutal and most of all, like HELLJARMETALL!

So, let’s not daudle, here it is. Enjoy at unhealthy volumes, and kindly spread this like ebola. Takk fyrir 🙂

Crunch time!

Crunch time!

We’re currently laying out last hands at the album, finetuning everything and doing the all-important mixing and mastering, so we can get this thing into your hands and ears.

So, we hope to do the official release when we perform at the Gaukurinn in Reykjavik where we kick off our Icelandic Metal Assault tour as well. Of course, the upcoming promos will still come as well, so stay tuned for those. So, keep an eye out for that, and as per usual, here’s some Eddic poetry for you to ponder:

Hrauð í himin upp glóðum
hafs, gekk sær af afli.
Börð, hygg ek, at ský skerðu.
Skaut Ránar vegr mána

Hail!

Promo tracks incoming!

Promo tracks incoming!

Since you guys have been waiting for us to release something for so long, we thought it might be apt to introduce you to some of the tracks on the upcoming Rock to Hell album. While we’re working on tracking, mixing, mastering and various complicated things, we decided to wet your appetite by releasing three promo tracks while we’re toiling to finish up the complete album. We’d like you to introduce you to our new blistering sound, we finally dubbed HELJARMETALL.

This is the first of three, a devilishly tasteful track called Upheaval. Kindly spread this like the airborne plague, and enjoy at unhealthy volumes alright!

Our demonic servants at the Rock Tour Agency have come through beautifully and have set up RÁN, Exile and Devine Defilement up with an infernal itinerary for Eastern Europe domination. You can grab the poster below, and weĺl also set up something on our facebook page so you get alerted when we haunt in your neck of the woods.

We’ll be storming through Iceland, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia Poland, Germany and the Netherlands in a span of three weeks. We’re looking forward to seeing all of your screaming, moshing and headbanging faces from the stage.

See you soon!
