SOMEWHERE IN NOWHERE
Rise of the Lost Souls
BSR016 | Colors: black, orange | Released: 10 July 2023
How could you best describe the music of Somewhere in Nowhere? Is it traditional metal with mostly US influences of heavy, yet catchy guitars? It definitely is, although these German guys offer much more for those who venture into their realm.
This release was recorded over the course of 5 years, between 2017 and 2022, and only saw the light of day in the Summer of 2023. With 4 new songs, 1 re-recorded, and 5 remastered tracks from their debut, Somewhere in Nowhere made an impressive, 50 minute release to keep your head bang. Watch out for those twisted progressive elements!
All copies were made exclusively for the band.

BSR015 | Colors: red, purple | Released: 31 March 2023
Heavy metal strikes back! Vadász is bringing you no less than the English versions of 4 songs from their debut album plus their version of Accept's "Breaker" as a bonus track. If you enjoy the bands of the NWOTHM movement, and would love to get your hands on a beautiful, unpolished underground heavy/speed metal piece, then you will definitely enjoy Life Eternal!
This entirely self-produced EP released on cassette, and digital platforms only. As all copies were made exclusively for the band, Burning Sun Records don't sell this release.
BSR014 | Color: black | Released: 29 December 2022
Burning Sun is a power metal project formed by Zoltán Papi (bass), the owner of Burning Sun Records, and just like the label, it was named after eponymous Helloween song.
This strictly limited, hand-numbered release was a one song demo that was meant to signal the birth of the project. The song "Emaly" is about a warrior of holy light, a paladin whom the upcoming album's loose concept is centered around. Based on Zoltán's lyrics, the music was written by Cederick Forsberg (Blazon Stone) and Pancho Ireland (Merciless Law).
Also includes the instrumental version of the song.
BSR013 | Color: classic clear | Released: 21 November 2022
There's nothing better than a good, headbanging album with crazy guitar harmonies, hooks, and screaming vocals telling tales about legends and glory, right?
Although the band sings in Hungarian, do not let this stop you from enjoying this underground gem as you will quickly realize that music is a universal language that we all speak fluently. You will be hooked from the first track; we can promise you that!
The cassette version includes their complete demo from 2012 as well as the instrumental version of the title track.
POWER AND GLORY
BSR012 | Color: classic clear | Released: 12 September 2022
This demolishing heavy metal band's virtuoso guitar playing truly makes them stand out from the endless sea of "new wave of traditional heavy metal" acts. Power and Glory is built on foundations that stood the test of time, but in the meantime Road Werewolves prove that it is always possible to enchant the music with a unique touch.
Power and Glory's second album shreds its way to Heaven, making this album a must-have for all old school metal fans who enjoy cassettes. Highly recommended for the fans of Loudness, Malice and Racer X. Our version includes 6 additional instrumental bonus tracks.
From Hell and Back (EP)
BSR011 | Color: black | Released: 12 September 2022
For the first time on physical format, we are bringing you Jester Ghost's debut release on cassette. These three songs are filled with seriously addictive melodies that will lift your spirit up!
Although From Hell and Back is a concept EP, each song stands on its own as these Italians once again show that metal is a genre not only rich in riffs and guitar solos, but also full of power, glory and happiness. Recorded with two different singers, Jester Ghost will definitely appeal to the fans of Helloween, Heavenly, Freedom Call and "happy metal" in general.
BSR010 | Color: classic clear | Released: 13 July 2022
Virgin Idol created the perfect heavy metal soundtrack that could be part of an occult undeground horror movie that just got unearthed.
While the riffs were written in Judas Priest and Accept traditions, Virgin Idol's atmosphere bears the black mark of Mercyful Fate/King Diamond. "Don't Touch the Flame" summons the spirit of Accept with Udo on vocals, "Do it Again" sends a shiver down your spine while keeping you headbanging with its speedy guitars.
The Neverending Fire
BSR009 | Colors: black, yellow | Released: 13 July 2022
The commando of Steelballs once again sends an energizing thunderbolt to the metal heart of everyone who worships the undying flame of the heavy and speed metal of the 80's.
Their second album is a perfect follow-up to their critically acclaimed first record, providing yet another dose of fast riffs, remarkable solos, and a ton of screaming vocals. One thing is for sure, these guys are serious about their belief in the eternal flame, for their music is the embodiment of heavy metal freedom.
Troops of Steel
BSR008 | Colors: purple, blue | Released: 06 May 2022
Merciless Law's debut album is a speed metal assault that should not be
missed by anyone who enjoys razor-sharp riffs, killer solos, and
high-pitched vocals. With the fantastic artwork of Mina Walkure, the powerhouse mix & master of Cederick Forsberg (Blazon Stone), this album is doubt a high quality album that should appeal to all fans of Teutonic speed metal.
Merciless Law's debut is not just a promising masterpiece but something that will stuck in your head even after you take the cassette out from the player.
SEEDS OF METAL
BSR006 | Color: classic clear | Released: 19 December 2021
