RAGER BLAZE Inks A Deal With Stargazer Consultancy

01Stargazer Consultancy is excited to announce a management contract with Iranian multi-talented artist Ehsan Imani and his great project RAGER BLAZE. Ehsan is a musician, producer, composer, photographer and multi-instrument player, who graduated with a “Professional Singer-Songwriter” qualification from the Berklee Online University.

Mohsen Fayyazi, CEO of Stargazer Consultancy  has commented:

Ehsan Imani is the absolute pride of all Iranian rock and metal lovers. He knows music, recording, mixing, mastering and all their tricks very well. It’s my honour to serve him as a manager and I saw all lightness in the future of this talented man!

Ehsan Imani has stated the following:

I’m really glad about this contract. Today in this industry, its really hard to find someone who really knows what’s he doing, so bands feel lots of pressure doing all the marketing-related jobs on their own. But Stargazer took that pressure away from me, and there’s no one here who can do this job better than him.

RAGER BLAZE debut self-titled full studio album was released on digital format worldwide and CD only in Iran, on 1st January 2014. The album fronts modern rock and metal music from Iran and Ehsan had no limits in writing his great music. A trailer of this album has been posted on the RAGER BLAZE YouTube channel and can be seen below:

“A Hymn Of The Vicious Monster” is a 6 track EP and was mixed and mastered by Iranian producer Ehsan Imani in Mixter Blaze Studio. The artwork was created by Shahryar Shervin .The EP will be available on both CD and in Digital format.

AZOOMA frontman Shahin Vaqfipour stated the following regarding the concept of the EP:

We really like the idea of telling a story throughout this EP, we want each song to be unique but all of them to relate to each other and complete each other. We wanted to create something new and at the same time, staying true to the roots of death metal and its traditions.

“A Hymn Of The Vicious Monster” is about a normal person who seems to be a victim of the situations he is in, but eventually it becomes clear that if the conditions are right, he can turn into the monster which he thinks he is a victim of.

It’s the nature of mankind. If he has the opportunities, he can turn into something evil which he thinks he would never be and do some vicious deeds. Everyone has this potential, but the true power and purity is not to let this nature, this essence grow.

“A Hymn Of The Vicious Monster” tracklist:

1. Preface
2. Chapter I: Self-Inflected
3. Chapter II: Eridanus Supervoid
4. Chapter III: Encapsulated Delusion

azooma-logo-BnWIranian Death Metal warriors AZOOMA have recently signed a worldwide contract with Spanish label XTREEM MUSIC. As a result the band will be releasing an EP, entitled “A Hymn Of The Vicious Monster” in both Digital and CD formats soon.

Guitarist Ahmad Tokallou commented: “This is what we have been waiting for and it is not only because of our hard work, but also the help from some great and kind friends, who are invisible to others but shared their mighty energy and kindness with us…. Xtreem Music is a great company, and this encourages us and give us more hope to go forward … you will hear more from Azooma!

It’s one of the best things that can happen for an artist to co-operate with a good and reliable company such as Xtreem Music,” drummer Saeed Shariat says. “I have a good feeling about it and we hope to satisfy metal heads more… Just wait for our EP, it will make necks ache!

Dave Rotten, XTREEM MUSIC president and main man of legendary AVULSED stated the following: “The very first time I heard AZOOMA, I was extremely surprised by their combination of sheer brutality and technical skills at the same time as their EP sounds really heavy with a great production. I’m running the label since 1990 and this is the very first band from Middle East that I decided to sign. They have the right attitude and overall… they sound fucking great!! Hopefully AZOOMA will help to break barriers for other good bands in these countries where extreme Metal isn’t that popular“.
