"Signs of Wings" Out Now! 

From Frontiers Music slr: 

Sascha Paeth has launched a new band, Masters Of Ceremony and their debut album "Signs Of Wings" is out now! Sascha put together a great group of musicians including Felix Bohnke (Avantasia) on drums, André Neygenfind (Avantasia) on bass, Corvin Bahn on keyboards, and the awesome American singer Adrienne Cowan (Seven Spires). Offering a wide range of styles within the metal spectrum, from aggressive and straight-forward metal songs, to more melodic and symphonic tracks, this record has a bit of everything. 

Sascha says, “Finally, I am putting my energy into a metal project of my own. It is the sum of my experiences over the years and a bit of a revival of what I was doing in the past.” 

"Signs Of Wings" available on CD/LP/Digital. A limited edition, 180g, gatefold, white vinyl edition of "Signs Of Wings" is available on the Frontiers EU and U.S. stores. This pressing is strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide. Get a copy here, while supplies last. 

"The Time Has Come" by Sascha Paeth's Masters of Ceremony 

NEW SONG & VIDEO ALERT: Sascha Paeth's Masters Of Ceremony have unveiled their first single & video, 'The Time Has Come'! Debut album, "Signs Of Wings" out September 13, 2019 on CD/LP/Color LP/Digital. Pre-order: Get a limited edition, 180g, white vinyl edition available exclusively on the Frontiers EU & U.S. stores. Strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide. Get a copy here, while supplies last.

After four or five years of discussions about a possible collaboration with Frontiers, renowned German producer, guitarist, and songwriter Sascha Paeth agreed to join forces with the Italian label and launch his new band, Sascha Paeth's Masters Of Ceremony. Today, fans can get their first look at Sascha Paeth's Masters Of Ceremony with the premiere of their first music video, 'The Time Has Come'. 

Watch it here.

Sascha says, “Finally, I am putting my energy into a metal project of my own. It is the sum of my experiences over the years and a bit of a revival of what I was doing in the past.” 

“Signs of Wings” is much more than a solo album. Sascha put together a great group of musicians including Felix Bohnke (Avantasia) on drums, André Neygenfind (Avantasia) on bass, Corvin Bahn on keyboards, and the awesome American singer Adrienne Cowan (Seven Spires). Offering a wide range of styles within the metal spectrum, from aggressive and straight forward metal songs, to more melodic and symphonic tracks, this record has a bit of everything and is certainly going to strike fans of Sascha's as one of the most inventive, complete, and exciting releases in the metal genre in 2019. 

As a 15 year old teenager, you might have found Paeth playing a more bluesy style, or Van Halen-meets-Accept style hard rock, but it wasn’t long before Paeth joined Heaven’s Gate, where the music was harder and heavier. This experience was where he learned to enjoy inspiration from new styles and from new collaborations. It was the start of a long journey through the music business, a journey that is far from over.... 

To label Sascha Paeth a multi-talented producer, engineer, musician, and songwriter might not quite cover his full set of skills and achievements. The Wolfsburg-born German multi-musician has produced countless bands including Avantasia, Kamelot, Rhapsody, Epica, and more. Having worked on, produced, and engineered over 200 albums since 1988, it’s fair to say he has a reputation for being at the forefront of shaping the European melodic power metal sound.

Sascha Paeth's Masters of Ceremony 


Well, this is really quite an honour :') 

I'm stunned and thrilled to sing for Sascha, who worked on so many of my favourite albums growing up, and I'm even happier to say that he is such a rad, down to earth, totally cool and humble human. 

I could go on and on about how great he is, but maybe you should follow the band :D It also includes Felix and Andre from Avantasia :)


From Frontiers Music:

Sascha Paeth has revealed the singer for his upcoming Sascha Paeth's Masters Of Ceremony release! 

"Today I want to reveal the voice for the “Masters Of Ceremony”. I can say nothing else really, but that it was a wise decision to choose Adrienne Cowan from the USA. She is also the lead singer of the great band Seven Spires, which is where I know her from. 

We have started the recording process and it is turning out wonderfully! She can totally deliver exactly what I had hoped for: from soft, melodic to super aggressive with an amazing range. On top of that, she is a “no attitude” sweet, kind person, who easily fits into our “family”. Thanks for joining, Adrienne!"

Is our absolute pleasure to welcome the great Adrienne Cowan from (Seven Spires) as a guest for our new album! 
Adrienne delivers a wide range of amazing vocals that goes from clean high pitch tones, to incredible growls! Adrienne is such a cool friend to work with that is just amazing as well. 

We are extremely excited to have her working on some songs with us, and we can't wait to share with you more about this journey. 

Truly an honor to have you dear Adrienne, looking forward to share more music together, and perhaps on stage one day :) 

Stay tune to this page since we already worked with Adrienne a song (more to come) that we are pretty excited about, and we may share some cool updates with you guys soon! 

Michael / Jonah / Alex"


Many of you on here know me as the vocalist from Seven Spires, FirstBourne, Light & Shade, or maybe even from my YouTube covers :) But, I also play keys and BVs for Winds of Plague, and today is new record day! I haven't really heard the tracks since we were on the RV back in February, so it's almost like new for me too :) 

The musical surprises on this album thrill my black heart, and I'm proud of my small contributions. The Plague crew is full of good people and I am very happy to be part of it. 

Hope to see you on the road in December with Suicide Silence


Seven Spires' brand new official music video for “The Paradox” is out today! Head over to Metal Underground and check it out! 

"Guitarist Jack Kosto commented: "The Paradox' is definitely one of the heavier songs on 'Solveig,' and it really showcases Adrienne’s ability to seamlessly blend super brutal extreme vocal techniques with her signature power metal belting. The instrumental parts are more technical here and very black metal-influenced, and the orchestra is just as massive and intense, making it a blast for us to perform live as well!' 

Adrienne Cowan added: 'At this point in the story, we learn some of the Demon’s rather unfortunate past, as well as some weary and profound bitterness harbored towards her prison, the decadent Underworld that she rules.'" 

Many thanks to our friends at EmVision for their work once again!

Graced once again by the mixing/mastering genius of Sascha Paeth and Miro Rodenberg, Seven Spires’ new album is “SOLVEIG”, a theatrical metal concept album in two acts. It is the story of a lost soul and his journey through a Demon’s sunless neo-victorian underworld. Despite small glimmers of hope, it is a grim tale with a heavy focus on escapism, death, and decadence. With distinct attention to melancholic power metal, melodic death, and black metal, Seven Spires fuse sounds from across the spectrum of metal with their great love for Romantic composers, and the atmospheric and storytelling capabilities of film scores.

Artwork and Track Listing for Light & Shade Album 

My collaboration with guitarist Marco Pastorino (Italy/Temperance and Secret Sphere), bassist Luca Negro (Italy/Temperance) and guest drummer Alex Landenburg (Germany/LT's Rhapsody). Produced by Simone Mularoni (DGM).


The tracklist is as follows: 

1. Essence Of You 
2. Drown In The Absurdity 
3. Spirit Of Anne 
4. Burned 
5. You Are 
6. Meet Me In Summer 
7. Brokenhearted 
8. Lionhearted 
9. Wander So Far 
10. Welcome The Cold 
11. The Essence Of Everything 

The artwork has been handled by Tiziano Spigno (Secret Sphere). 

Luca says " "Essence Of Everything" is a journey between lights and shades. A portrait of obscure modern melodies and dreaming atmospheres. We immediately looked forward trying in the songwriting/recording process with live instruments, big arrangements, great vocal impressions. Personally I'm absolutely honoured to have worked with Adrienne and Alex, of course the best in their roles. A new alchemy road with my brother Marco. I suppose that Light & Shade will give you many good things and vibrations."
