Spains EXCALIBUR to Release Humo Negro on May 3, 2017
EXCALIBUR, the legendary Spanish heavy metal band formed back in 1984, have signed a deal with FIGHTER RECORDS for the release of their third album, titled Humo Negro ("Black Smoke"), set for international release on May 2nd.
After a couple of demos in '84 and '87, EXCALIBUR released their debut album in '88 under the title of Generación Maldita ("Damned Generation"), which has the honor of being the heavy metal record with the highest selling price in Spain - no more and no less than 1600 Euros! Bad luck followed this record: only 100 copies were saved from destruction, which means it's one of the most sought-after treasures of Spanish heavy metal/rock.
In 1996, EXCALIBUR recorded their second album, Cero, which was never commercialized, remaining unreleased still today. In 2013, the band returned with a new EP, Más Duros ("Harder"). Now in 2017, EXCALIBUR has finished their third full-length album, Humo Negro, where they represent the purest and most traditional Spanish heavy metal/hard rock, and will be released, promoted, and distributed both nationally and internationally by FIGHTER RECORDS, the new division of XTREEM MUSIC devoted to traditional metal sounds.
Current lineup of EXCALIBUR:
Paco Mira - voz
Juan Rico - guitarra
Vicen Beneite - teclados
Javi Martínez - batería
Jesús Folgado - bajo
Carlos “Indio” - guitarra
