Norwegian band SLAVES TO FASHION continues to honor 50 years of heavy metal. In 2020 the band is releasing one new song every month that is inspired by and pays tribute to the different time periods and subgenres of heavy metal. All the songs will make up the concept album "The History of Heavy Metal".
The eighth single, "The Power of Metal", is now out. The song pays tribute to power metal, the subgenre that became popular in Europe in the 1990's as a reaction to grunge and alternative metal.
"The Power of Metal" was mixed by legendary producer Tommy Hansen, who produced the two classic "Keeper of the Seven Keys"-albums by Helloween. The song was mastered by Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Stratovarius, Edguy). The cover art was made by Dimitar Nikolov.
The new single succeeds the songs "1970", "The Priest of Maidenhead", "Sex, Drugs & Rock 'N' Roll", "Thrash of the Titans", "Expressions of Extremity", "Garden of Chains" and "The Evergowing Tree" in the album project.
