British heavy metal veterans Mythra have released a video clip for “A Call To All”, a brand new track taken from their new album, aptly titled Still Burning…..
Cranking the melody factor up to 100%, “A Call To All” is classic NWOBHM, melded to the instant hooks of Cheap Trick and certainly raises a smile! Full of energy and passion, this little ditty has ‘sing-a-long anthem’ written all over it and while it’s not exactly packing ‘muscle’, “A Call To All” is still a high octane blast of infectious pop-metal!
Still Burning is available as a vinyl LP, CD, and digital download, and was released via High Roller Records.
“It’s the first time the band has gone into the studio and recorded a complete album all in one go. We flew out to Poland in October 2016 to work with Bart Gabriel as producer. It was a superb experience and we all had a great time working with him. We were totally blown away when High Roller Records signed us to record the album and cannot thank them enough. Their support has been incredible!” says Mythra vocalist, Vince High.
“We intended to stay true to our NWoBHM roots and achieved our goal. The eleven tracks have tons of power and energy, twin lead guitar breaks, driving bass, thunderous drums and big choruses. Everything fans would expect from a Mythra album”, he adds.
Mythra‘s reunion was a major event for many NWoBHM fans around the globe. Their legendary first recording from 1979, titled The Death And Destiny EP (as if you didn’t know!), has retained cult status and stands proudly alongside Iron Maiden‘s The Soundhouse Tapes, released in the same year.
The band has a great legacy, which has inspired and continues to inspire metal bands across the world, including Metallica, whose members have cited Mythra as one of the influences on their early recordings.
Two years ago Mythra released the Warriors Of Time: The Anthology album, which featured a collection of classic tracks recorded between 1979 and 1982 along with five songs written and recorded in 2015 following the band’s reunion performances at Brofest UK and the Keep It True festival in Germany, both of which attracted fans from across Europe, the USA and South America.
