OFFICIAL: Six years after the critically acclaimed album ‘Dreamtherapy’, Czech leading power metal act Eagleheart is back with a new album and they are stronger than ever! After some minor line-up changes, the Brno-based band have come up with their most ambitious, dynamic, emotional and epic album to date, this time with three singers and, again, with the helping hand of Power Metal legend Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween). The new, long-waited album ‘Reverse’ will be released on August 18th, 2017 on Scarlet Records and its most definitely not to be missed by every fan of bands such as Symphony X, Kamelot and Blind Guardian! This is how guitarist Michal Kůs commented: "While our previous record was about dreams and escape from the real world, this one is quite the opposite, it's a wake up call for reality. This is one of the reasons for its title, which implicates moving into the opposite direction, a symbolic change. The whole production process took a bit longer than we expected but here we go again, offering our strongest, most dynamic and epic material to date. It’s the soundtrack of our lives in the last couple of years and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!"
Biography (not updated): The Czech power metal band Eagleheart was founded by guitarist Michal Kůs and a couple of his friends in 2003. At the beginnig the line-up changed several times but soon long-time members Jiří Fiala (bass) and Zdeněk Vémola (drums) joined the band. In 2005 Eagleheart found a singer Vojtěch Šimoník with whom they recorded their first EP called Black Sun became popular in their hometown Brno. At the beginning of 2007 Eagleheart won a contest with recording the album in a professional studio as the first prize. The studio helped the band a lot to record their first long-playing CD called Moment Of Life which was released at the beginning of 2008 by the Czech independent label Metal Swamp. The new material supported by a music video for the title song and intensive live activities gained success and the band became one of the best power metal acts in the country. Not only the first album which was positively reviewed not only in Czech, but mainly their energetic live performances often compared to old Helloween helped the band to perform as a support for names like WASP, Blaze Bayley, André Matos, Elvenking, Dark Moor or House Of Lords or at the biggest Czech metal festivals Masters Of Rock and Benátská Noc where Eagleheart played for thousands of fans.
For the next record Eagleheart decided to choose a renowned producer, guitar player and singer, Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween), to help them make an outstanding album. In October 2010 a new second guitarist Michal Jankuliak joined Eagleheart and the band was finally ready for the recording session that started at the beginning of 2011 in Grapow Studios, Slovakia. After many weeks of hard work, the second album "Dreamtherapy" was released via Italian label Scaret Records which will release in Europe, USA and Japan! In 2012 the singer Vojta Šimonik was replaced by extremely talented guy Roman Sáček who debuted with Eagleheart at Masters Of Rock 2013 festival with a great success! As a result of that Eagleheart was chosen by British speed metal stars Dragonforce as a support act on the Ceantral European part of their world tour which took Eagleheart into Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary with a huge success. Eagleheart is currently working hard on new songs for an upcoming album coming out in 2015. Again in cooperation with Roland Grapow as a producer.
