Manga metal moshers RISE OF THE NORTHSTAR have released a brand new video trailer in which they explain the title of their recently released debut album “Welcame”!
The album was mixed and mastered by renowned producer Zeuss (MADBALL, HATEBREED, EMMURE) and is available as limited edition digipak including a so-called obi, a traditional Japanese paper strip, wrapped around the CD. Two special bundles including a different rare and limited T-Shirts can be ordered as well. “Welcame” is also be available on vinyl in various colours.

Furthermore the band has launched a competition for their fans to win a hand drawn manga by singer Vithia. Check out the drawing and details here!
The picture was drawn when the band hit the Nuclear Blast Headquarters in Donzdorf, Germany last week Friday for the company’s annual end-of-year party and performed in the offices in front of a completely stunned crowd. Check out some photos of RISE OF THE NORTHSTAR live in action, as well as of label mates DIABLO BLVD who also played that night – courtesy of Manuela Dieringer | DIMA Photography.
