Finnish Melodic Heavy Metal band Merging Flare was founded by the very same members of its predecessor band Disease. After a few demos and split singles (made between 2001 and 2007), the group was ready to sign their first record deal in 2009. They started working on material in 2010 and released ‘Reverence’ a year later. Fast forward eight years later and fans of tasteful, Melodic Heavy Metal, can now look forward to the return of the band come Friday 14th June with their new album ‘Revolt Regime’. And it will certainly have been well worth the wait, as Merging Flare have created a classic Heavy Metal album which reminds of Judas Priest, Accept, Running Wild, Helloween and Gamma Ray, with that typical Nordic flavor added (think of Tarot).
