Kicking off into this Black Friday with the probably best news for all metalheads and heavy music lovers: Patrick Walch has announced the launch of the brand new record label Noble Demon!
Patrick Walch is joining forces with UCM.ONE and can thus draw on the existing structures there. Thorsten Kriebus acts as Product Manager. The team will also be strengthened by Mona Miluski, Head of Promotion at Napalm Records for many years and for almost 2 years more than successful managing director of her own PR agency All Noir, as well as her colleague Dominik Goncalves dos Reis.
The new tribe of Noble Demon already includes bands like the Melodic Death Doom project Dawn of Solace, the Colombian-American Death Metal Walze No Raza, Black Metal master Night Crowned as well as the Swiss Thrash Metal giants of Gomorra.
At the beginning of 2020 the first album of Wolfheart and Before the Dawn mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen, Dawn of Solace called “Waves” will be released physically and digitally. The first single “Lead Wings” is now available everywhere as download or stream.
In addition to the brand new album “Waves“, which will be released in January 2020, the legendary Dawn of Solace debut album “The Darkness” from 2006 is available digitally from now on again.
The title “Lead Wings“, which comes from Dawn of Solace‘s upcoming second album, presents itself directly in perfection, where the Waves journey will go in full length. After his rough and bubble-forming Doom-Rocking-Intro “Lead Wings” leads us further into the deepest melancholy, wrapped in a finest death and slowly burned Doom-Juggernaut.
This first single makes us starve even more, but after 13 long years the waiting is over, because Dawn of Solace – the solo project of Wolfheart and Before the Dawn mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen – will return on January 24, 2020 with his second album “Waves” on the label Noble Demon! This is a detached and exciting affair that feeds on melancholic fate and dark progressive rock majesty!
Patrick Walch: “After the launch of my successful agency Suricate Music earlier this year, which offers support in the areas of digital marketing, online promotion, social media, consulting and digital strategies, I felt the urge to work even more closely with artists.
In addition to digital distribution and my agency services for the bands, the best possible choice was to work together with Joachim Keil from UCM.ONE, who has decades of expertise in the distribution of music and films, in publishing and thus in the very important sync sector, an indispensable interface.
With his knowledge and background, my experience as head of digital sales and online marketing for twelve years at the planet’s biggest indie metal label Nuclear Blast, we didn‘t have to think twice when we saw the opportunity to get All Noir on board as our PR agency. Mona Miluski, longtime and former head of PR at Napalm Records, who successfully started her own PR agency almost 2 years ago, and her colleague Dominik Goncalves dos Reis will be adding top-notch experience and best contacts in the PR area to our team.
We are convinced that together with Soulfood and daredo as our distributors we are offering an unprecedented global structure on a major level but as a small team we are more flexible and dynamic than any other label out there enabling us to move mountains. Not to mention that we are fucking hot for sick new rock- and metal bands!”
