Stagma’s debut album is OUT NOW

Heavy rock band Stagma, the international musical collaboration featuring artists from Europe and the US, have dropped their debut album, the self-titled ‘Stagma’. The album, released on Lisbon-based Headshell Records, contains twelve tracks of Stagma’s signature heavy rock, including an introduction and conclusion by legendary videogame composer, Jeroen Tel.

Producer, composer and Stagma’s rhythm guitarist, Alex Santos says of working alongside Rob Mancini, Neil Fraser, Joe Petro, Vinny Appice, Patrick Johansson, and Jeroen Tel: ‘We’re really pleased that such a talented group of musicians could come together. We combined our efforts and produced an album we’re really proud of.’

He added: ‘When Simon Wright of AC/DC came on board to add drums to ‘Sister Sister’, it was then we knew we had something special.’ Having played and toured with acts such as TEN, Heaven and Earth, Black Sabbath, Maniacs of Noise, Yngwie Malmsteen, Scar For Life, Boneyard Dog, and others, these seasoned musicians plan to keep on producing more music for Stagma.

What others are saying about Stagma:
“Musically it is heavy melodic rock with groove and catchiness, and the production is good and pretty exciting … Good vocals and good production, good variation through the songs as well. … a great melodic rock album that … manages to sound fresh and interesting” – Hallowed.se

“Stagma alternates catchy moments with other more heavy and dark, for a final result that is good from the production point of view, but hard enough for most classic melodic fans.” – MelodicRock.it

“The sound quality of the album is really heavy and aggressive as modern Heavy Metal demands to be, but with that essential clarity. … All the songs are really great, … so listen the album from the beginning to its end.” – Metal Temple

Stagma features Jeroen Tel with ‘To be continued …’

Renowned for his C64 SID soundtracks, Stagma were honoured when Jeroen Tel joined the band to record two tracks for our debut album. The first anthem, ‘Genesis’ is a fitting introduction and the concluding track, ‘To Be Continued…’ is a promise of things to come.

We hope that you will enjoy this exclusive release of ‘To Be Continued …’ and that you are looking forward to the release of the full album this Friday 6 April. In the meantime please like and follow our Facebook page and that of Headshell Records and join us on Instagram at @stagmaofficial for more goodies.

STAGMA go back to basics with their new album

Today, Stagma are delighted to issue a PRESS RELEASE that is sure to fill all of our friends and supporters with excitement:

Ever since international super group Stagma invaded the airwaves in October with the release of their first single, ‘Pokerface’, the world has been waiting for the band to release their new album. The self-titled album, Stagma, will drop on 6 April 2018 and there’s more …

The first track ‘Genesis’, is an electronic introduction from gaming legend Jeroen Tel, and because the Commodore 64 had the most awesome music in the business (just like Stagma), Headshell Records and Stagma’s producer/composer Alex Santos have decided that the band’s debut album will be released exclusively in 8-bit making use of an SID chip for the Commodore 64! No more downloads, now you can own a piece of music history on a piece of computing history!

Remixed specially for its release on repurposed Commodore 64 games cartridges, the twelve song album, which will include a bonus track, ‘Castaway’ featuring AC/DC’s Simon Wright on drums, will be available exclusively from Headshell Records (www.headshellrecords.com). The cartridge will also feature an exclusive Stagma: The Game, where you can choose to be ‘Alex’, ‘Vinny’, ‘Rob’, ‘Neil’, ‘Joe’, ‘Patrick’, ‘Simon’ or ‘Jeroen’ and compose your own heavy rock masterpiece. Just like Stagma.
