"UNMADE HAMMER: VAMPIRELLA was destined to be a campy, tongue-in-cheek film featuring the titular heroine battling against creatures of the crypt and outer space alike – anything that is ‘out of this world’. Its lengthy and unfruitful development was a contributing factor to HAMMER’s problems in the 1970s, but even towards the end of his life Michael Carreras said it was his greatest disappointment that, after an alleged 25 drafts, he couldn’t get his galactic epic off the ground."
- pity it was never made! And yeah, Caroline Munro would be absolutely perfect as Vampirella!

HEIDRA was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, during winter of 2006 by a group of musicians inspired by more melodic Metal genres. They sought to create music you do not see much in the Danish Metal scene that incorporated the harshness of Black Metal, as well as the symphonic and melodic aspects of, for example, Power Metal and Folk music. As the band decided to take no prisoners, they chose the best ones to work with: in 2013 the band entered the famous Sonic Train Studios, owned by King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque, who already worked with acts such as Einherjer, Hammerfall or Falconer, and in Autumn the first official full lenght album - titled “Awaiting Dawn”, has been completed and is ready for the release. Stay tuned for further news!

MESSENGER on European Tour with PRIMAL FEAR and BULLET // tour dates to be announced shortly
Germany is known as the homeland of Power Metal, and MESSENGER seems to be one of the strongest young bands out there. On their current album “Starwolf - Pt.I: The MessengeRs” they move into new horizons - into the infinities of the universe to be precise. In association with the novelist Victor L. Pax, Messenger will play the central characters of a science fiction novel which has specially been created for the band with the name: “Sternenwolf - Die Boten” (“Starwolf - The MessengeRs”). The artwork is a contribution from the illustrator Wiebke Scholz, who has established her reputation in the fantasy and games scene. As for the musical development, the guys from Saarland stepped up their game sticking to their style, though: thrilling riffs, bombastic choirs, catchy melodies, virtuous guitar play and the variable four-octave-voice of the lead vocalist, which will blow metalheads’ minds! Fasten your seatbelts for the trip with the MESSENGER space pirates!
