More Info:

Receiver - Whispers Of Lore / Epic metal collides with folk and NWOBHM in an album stocked with fantasy and allegory! The debut offering from Cyprus pure heavy metal band Receiver, Whispers of Lore is a climatic, melody-dominated adventure for the ages! Formed in 2011 in Nicosia, Cyprus, Receiver has made it it's mission to deliver pure heavy, epic metal with a dose of folk influences. The band honors legends such as Iron Maiden, Warlord, Manilla Road, Omen, Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven's Gate, Riot, Savatage and Saracen, but also the traditional music of the island of Cyprus and folk from around the world such as The Dubliners and Sandy Denny. This unique blend has culminated in Receiver's long-awaited debut album, Whispers of Lore. Recorded in Athens, Greece, at Entasis Studios with Nick Papakostas (who also mixed and mastered the record), Whispers of Lore features a striking, memorable array of songs, graced with the soaring clean vocals of Nikoletta Kyprianou and backed by sterling guitar melodies. Perhaps the real beauty of Whispers of Lore is Receiver's uncanny ability to seamlessly underpin progressive rock and the sounds of NWOBHM into a compact, but adventurous nine songs. Lyric-wise Receiver addresses the ills of humanity: social injustice, imperialism and the vein, nefarious degradation of the human condition that is war. Through fantasy and allegory, Receiver expresses these concerns, sailing on a voyage of battle and lore. Whispers of Lore is a worldly, bold trip into the hearts and minds of a band who is just scratching the surface of it's creative potential. The time is now to immerse yourself in the world of Receiver - a classic metal band unlike any other!
