DESERT BAND Official Website Thu, 20 Jun 2019 07:05:40 +0000 en-US hourly 1 DESERT BAND 32 32 NEW ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT! Thu, 20 Jun 2019 10:06:30 +0000 Horns up, Warriors!

You have been waiting for years for these news. The waiting is over and the time has come!

We’re extremely excited to announce that our new album will be released on July 30 and will be titled “FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE”!

FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE is 50 minutes of pure War Metal, with adrenalin-fueled riffs, nasty distorted keyboards, and fist-raising, sing-along choruses. Inspired by heroic deeds of war, the songs are the perfect soundtrack for battle!
Still, the album is dynamic,  with atmosphere-building moments, just like silence builds tension before the storm…

FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE is the band’s third full-length album, featuring updated tight sound, in-your-face vocals and riffs, and upscale production (no sampled drums here!).


  1.  Fix Bayonets!
  2. Sons Of War
  3. Operation Thunderbolt
  4. Fortune Favors The Brave
  5. My Black Flag
  6. Hajduk’s Revenge
  7. I Gave You A Kingdom
  8. We Were Soldiers
  9. Blood On The Sand
  10. Symbol To Believe

Featuring special guests:
Chris Boltendahl [GRAVE DIGGER] on ‘Blood On The Sand’
Georg Neuhauser and Fabio D’Amore [SERENITY] on ‘I Gave You A Kingdom’ 
Shaked Furman and Yohai Davidoff 

Produced/recorded/mixed/mastered by Alex Zvulun in A.G.Studio, Tel Aviv, Israel.
Artwork by Peter Sallai [SABATON, POWERWOLF, WASP]

DESERT crowd-funding update! Sun, 17 Mar 2019 12:56:00 +0000 Dear backers and Desert Warriors!

The studio work on the album is done – writing, recording, singing, mixing, and it’s been made possible by YOU!

The music sounds great – the perfect balance of heavy and catchy, atmospheric and aggressive, we’re thrilled! It did take a little longer than planned, since we really wanted the perfect record, and you know, the 20/80 rule really applies here!
We’re now in the middle of communication and negotiation process with some great music labels and agencies, aiming to find the perfect partner to take us higher, so your contribution can have the biggest impact!

This means we can’t release the album just yet, we’ll have to gather a little bit of patience and humbly ask you to be patient too. 
We have started fulfilling the crowd-funding obligations not directly related to releasing the physical album. We will fulfill the unique perks shortly, and start sending out the physical merchandise such as books and t-shirts (which are already in manufacturing).
Naturally, backers who have chosen to receive the physical album will get it way before it hits the stores, and totally have the first exclusive time with it!
In any case the release of the album will not be delayed significanlty. If we won’t be satisfied with the deals we’re getting, the album will be released independently.
The decisions regarding the release the album will be made in the nearest few weeks and we are going to keep you updated.
Some of you who are going to catch us on upcoming European tour and want to grab the merch straight from the band’s hands are welcome to let us know!
Thank you for your support!

Forever yours,
