After Prince Angus heroically died in one of the greatest battles in the history of man and goblinkind, all hope in Scotland and the whole galaxy seemed lost. In the Realm of Martyrs, everything faded away for Angus like a blurry dream from the distant past. But when he is suddenly reminded that his home is being threatened, the prince sets out to return to the world of the living.
The only way leads through a portal in the depths of hell, sealed by the almighty sword Sixcalibur. When Angus draws the blade, he gets a fundamental upgrade and transforms into the golden hero ANGUS McSIX, escaping the underworld! Willing to defeat his old enemy once again, Angus has no idea that he has just opened the gateway back to the world of the living to a much darker power: Archdemon Seebulon (Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann, Orden Ogan).
The first chapter of the warriors’ glorious return can be heard on the debut album, ANGUS McSIX and the Sword of Power, out on April 21 2023, exclusively via Napalm Records.
To defeat the origin of all evil, the risen warrior ANGUS McSIX has formed new alliances with Buff Berserker Skaw! from the North (Manu Lotter, ex-Rhapsody of Fire) and the beautiful Queen of the Lazer-Amazons Thalestris (Thalia Bellazecca, ex-Frozen Crown), gathering their collective strength to fight the most epic battle in the history of Scotland. Only together there is still hope that Scotland and the entire universe will not fall under the diabolical dominion of Seebulon.
While riding on the back of a Pegasus, head-bopping techno beats and synth-waves are abound on “Ride to Hell“. Driven by mighty harmonies and striking rhythms, Angus draws “Sixcalibur”, the Sword of Power, to open the sealed gate of hell. Catchy guitar solos underline the sword’s powerful capability of gaining higher levels each time an enemy is killed by its blade. “Master of the Universe" continues the epic adventure and marks the comeback of ANGUS McSIX as he returns from the abyss. Euphoric and energetic melodies mingle with his legendary powerful vocals. The portal does lead Angus back to Scotland, but directly to the dawn of time. After the glorious warrior defeats an invasion of hellish “Fireflies of Doom”, the dwellers of the Holy Dwarven Empire of Dundee provide him the "Laser-Shooting Dinosaur", set to music in the energetic and catchy party track, reminiscent of the good old 8-bit video game days. As the last hope for this world, Angus is now to ride to the northern islands of Stenness to discover the secret of his own destiny.
ANGUS McSIX and the Sword of Power marks the mighty return of Thomas Winkler to the world of glorious power metal hymns and chant-along party tracks. As the former face of Gloryhammer for over a decade, ANGUS McSIX took no time to pause, building up his name across genreborders as one of the best entertainers in the metal scene with several guest appearances on projects like Nanowar Of Steel’s “Valhalleluja” and Feuerschwanz’s “Warriors Of The World United”. With ANGUS McSIX, he and his new allies and enemies are now ready to fight the biggest battles of the universe!
