The album is full of catchy melodies, pounding rhythms, twin guitar solos and even orchestrations. Rampart will also appear on the tribute album to Helloween and Gamma Ray - "Helloray - A Tribute To Helloween & Gamma Ray". This tribute album also features Norway's Gaia Epicus, Germany's Kickhunter (featuring Helloween bassist Markus Großkopf), Slovakia's Signum Regis (featuring former Yngwie Malmsteen/Glory singer Göran Edman) and others. "Helloray" will be released in the fall of 2011 via Epicus Records. The band is about to release a concert album “Live in London” in November 2011 and second full-length album “Stormforce” in early 2012.
