New VENGANCE Album Piece Of Cake Scheduled For Release In November 2013 via Steamhammer/SPV

Tour with Mad Max in November

Brimming with confidence and justifiable pride Dutch rock band Vengeance have announced the release of their latest album Piece Of Cake: “People can expect what to my ears is the best Vengeance album to date,” declares guitarist Timo Somers, “the songs are a nice blend of old school Vengeance (think Arabia) and some more modern sounding songs. This time the instrumental side of the band is really outspoken, it features a lot of nice intros, solos and instrumental pieces. And to top it off, Leon sounds better than ever.”

Somers promises eleven gripping new compositions: “´Raintime` is the fastest song on the album. The song kind of sounds like a Malmsteen song with Leon on vocals. Double bass, big chorus and a fast guitar solo are the keywords.” The most typical song is the title track ´Piece Of Cake`. Somers: “We needed a party song for the album and we wrote this together in about an hour in the studio. It`s this typical AC/DC thing with Leon going nuts and some Van Halen like guitars.” The most unusual song is ´Back To Square One`, a blues rock ballad in the vein of Gary Moore. “I don’t think a lot of people know this side of Vengeance,” Somers suggests, “but it showcases our more soulful side.” 

Piece Of Cake will be released on 28 October 2013 (Germany: 25 October 2013, USA/Canada: 5 November 2013), before Vengeance embark on their European tour with labelmates Mad Max: “This is a double tour together with Mad Max to celebrate our new albums being released on the same day. I’m pretty sure we’ll be on tour in spring 2014 as well – we’re working on that at the moment.” Here are the dates for autumn 2014:
