French metal veterans VULCAIN have released the title track of their forthcoming album, “Vinyle”, due on September 28 via Season Of Mist.
VULCAIN comments: “We were born in the age of vinyl, and luckily the format is still here after almost losing it forever. By choosing ‘Vinyle’ as the title for the album and this title track, we want to pay tribute to the format that made us headbang, feel alive and dream. In this era of streaming and digital downloads, VULCAIN wants to show respect to the real rock fans put there!”

VULCAIN is one of the longest-running and most revered names on the French heavy metal and hard rock scene. The band was formed in 1981 by vocalist and guitar player Daniel Puzio and his brother Vincent Puzio (bass). The first demo, “Privat”, was released in 1982 and was quickly followed by debut album “Rock ‘N’ Roll Secours” in 1984. Drummer Marc Varez joined the group shortly after, and from that moment on, they were quite rightly dubbed the “French MOTÖRHEAD” — a nickname that still applies to this day, even though VULCAIN‘s music encompasses many more influences.
After several lineup changes, VULCAIN continued its journey as a trio and released multiple full-lengths, EPs, and live albums. “Stoppe La Machine” (1998) marked VULCAIN‘s last release for more than a decade, as the band called it quits right after its release.
At the end of 2009, the band felt their hard rock roots still itching inside, and the power trio got back together. After touring the globe, performing at several European festivals like Hellfest, Headbangers Open Air and even supporting MOTÖRHEAD on a number of shows back in 2010, VULCAIN entered the studio once again. In 2013, by popular demand and some 15 years after the band’s previous studio release, new album “V8” hit the stores.
After 30 years of rock n’ roll and 13 albums so far, VULCAIN is feeling more energetic than ever.
