ROCKSHOTS RECORDS Signs Finnish power metal band METAL DE FACTO

Rockshots Records announce their latest signing of Finland’s METAL DE FACTO for the release of their debut album “Imperium Romanum” later this year.

The band was formed in late 2017 by Esa Orjatsalo (ex-Dreamtale) and Sami Hinkka (Ensiferum), who had met and discussed the deeper meanings of power metal in Ensiferum’s tour bus. The line-up was soon completed with Atte Marttinen (ex-Kivimetsän Druidi), Benji Connelly (Everfrost), Mikko Salovaara (Leverage) and Mikael Salo (Everfrost). The band promises to “Make Power Metal Great Again” with their powerful sound and epic concepts, ones that deal with different historical themes and mythologies.

Guitarist and founder Esa Orjatsalo states:
As our band name states, it is pure heavy metal music just as we like it, it means that it is time to ‘Make Power Metal Great Again’! That is what METAL DE FACTO is all about. “Imperium Romanum” is an album made by a huge power metal fan for other power metal fans. We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel just for the sake of it, but we definitely also brought some fresh perspective into the songwriting. If I would hear this album when I was young, I would have been really excited!
