Australia-based "epic, aggressive" metallers DRAGONSCLAW have completed work on their second album, "Judgement Day", for an early 2013 release. The band states, "David Reece [ACCEPT, BANGALORE CHOIR] has delivered an amazing guest vocal on the track 'Watching My Every Move'... Jack Starr [VIRGIN STEELE] plays a killer solo on the track 'Battle Cry', which is our tribute to RIOT and Mark Reale's musical legacy. And Natalie Whitton of the CURSING STONE contributes choir vocals on the track 'Fear'... our thanks also to Rhino [MANOWAR, ANGELS OF BABYLON] for tracking Jack's solo and to Corey Wyer [CURSING STONE] for assisting Natalie in the studio recording her vocals."
Commented Reece: "DRAGONSCLAW are a great band with an exceptional singer and I'm truly honored to have been asked to participate."
