Scarlet Records has created and launched its own partner label, Bakerteam Records, which aims in discovering and offering support to the best talents of the hard rock & heavy metal international scene. The new label will benefit from all the distribution channels and promotional tools that have made Scarlet one of the most established labels out there, focusing primarily on up and coming sensations that aspire worldwide exposure.
The first two Bakerteam releases will be debut albums from Israeli band Red Rose (25 October 2011) and Italian band The Ritual (14 November 2011).
Red Rose blends Melodic Hard Rock, Classic Heavy Metal and Pomp Rock keyboards in an elegant and refined shape in the vein of Royal Hunt. Recorded at Jailhouse Studios with renowned Danish producer Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Jorn), ‘Live The Life You've Imagined’ is a thrilling and memorable record from the first to the very last song.
Always in perfect balance between aggression and melody, The Ritual is a Power/Thrash Metal monster “contaminated” by modern Metal gods such as Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet For My Valentine. ‘Beyond The Fragile Horizon’, graced with a beautiful cover artwork by Nerve Design (Threshold, Nile, Legion Of The Damned, Vision Divine), is the Heavy Metal revelation of the year thanks to the contagious vehemence of its ten songs produced and mixed by Federico Pennazzato (Sadist, Secret Sphere) and mastered by Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios).
