According to many musical critics, classic heavy metal is a dead genre, buried deep somewhere in the 80’s. But every once in a while a fresh new band invades the scene to prove these critics wrong. The Australian formation Pegazus is just the band to prove that classic metal music is doing good and isn’t going anywhere. The four-piece managed to bring back the same magic that was once delivered by Iron Maiden, Helloween and Judas Priest, in the same time carving their own name in metal history. The three exclusive re-releases of Pegazus’ albums - “Wings of Destiny”, “Breaking the Chains” and “The Headless Horseman” - introduce a band that wasn’t afraid to face the hostile music business and, against all odds, remained true to the purest forms of heavy metal!

“Wings of Destiny” (1998) with nine killer tracks bring the best traditions of classic heavy metal to life. The album showcased a lot of references to true legends of the genre such as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Fates Warning and Manowar, but at the same time presented the band’s own unique style. While songs like “Werewolf”, “Wings of Steel” and “Enchanted World” brought the sheer essence of heavy metal, the album featured also some quite surprising compositions like the ballad “Destiny” and the instrumental track “Life on Mars”.

“Breaking the Chains” (1999) proved to be an extraordinary release, taking the roots of heavy metal into a whole new level. Reviewers called the album “a combination of AC/DC’s simplicity and Iron Maiden’s attitude”. The album featured galloping riffs, memorable leads and stunning solos – all the crucial elements to form an epic heavy metal album. What is more, Pegazus included a true gem on that LP – a brilliant cover version of Helloween’s “A Little Time”. Needless to say, the release was a great success on the metal scene, in the same time gaining lot of positive feedback from the fans.

“The Headless Horseman” (2002) was faster and heavier than anything Pegazus has ever written before. The album was by far the band’s most intense offering, being later on compared to Judas Priest’s “Painkiller”! Songs such as “Nightstalker”, “The Patriot” and the epic title track once again proved Pegazus’ pure heavy metal genius.

“Wings of Destiny”, “Breaking the Chains” and “The Headless Horseman” will be released in a new digipak edition. Each album includes bonus tracks and is limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc. The official release date is scheduled for 7th July 2008 in Europe and 5th August 2008 in USA (via MVD).
