Serpents In Paradise announce “Temptation”

After the split of Spitefuel, guitarist Tobias Eurich didn’t just want to hang up his guitar, but dedicate himself more to what had been neglected in the years before: solid hard rock. More blues, more dirt and more of his guitar heroes from his youth. In Matthias Lüönd and Jason-Steve Mageney, the right comrades-in-arms were quickly found for an ambitious project, the result of which will be released on 8th July in the form of “Temptation” on MDD Records.

Since no suitable singer could be found in the immediate vicinity, the idea of realising the whole thing with the help of various guest singers matured. In the end, Gianni Pontillo (Victory), Stu Block (Into Eternity, ex-Iced Earth), Herbie Langhans (Firewind, Avantasia), Mark Fox (Shakra) and Alex Kühner (High Tide), a whole host of singing heroes, got enthusiastic about the project, the idea and not least the songs and contributed their part to this album. The result is a gripping, incredibly mature hard rock album. Down-to-earth, solid, simply good. Stay tuned – more infos soon!
