SPLIT HEAVEN – “Speed Of The Hawk” – official single from the album "Death Rider" - official release date vinyl: 10th of March 2017 by PURE STEEL RECORDS
10.02.2017Release NewsThe wait is over, Mexico’s speed metal demons return. Their last effort, ”The Devil’s Bandit”, was released on our sub label Pure Legend, but this album is coming back through Pure Steel Records, like we did with "Street Law“ in 2011.
Split Heaven is back with a vengeance with their album “Death Rider”.They have formed an alliance with their new singer Jason Conde-Houston, from Seattle, the frontman of US Metal band Skelator. He is strongly influenced by high pitched legends like Helstar’s James Rivera and Primal Fear’s Ralf Scheepers. As always Split Heaven is keeping it true, this time with “Painkiller” style double bass drumming, “Thundersteel” style guitar melodies, and glorious NWoBHM style solos. This album features an uptempo smasher “Speed Of The Hawk”, the spanish fistpumper “Descarga Letal” as well as the striking opener “Death Rider”. The explosive, crushing, “Death Rider” will take the hearts of many Metal maniacs by storm! Split Heaven returns stronger than ever!
After the CD release in March 2016 follows the album "Death Rider” in a limited edition of 150 black copies with insert and patch on vinyl.
