TONY MILLS Gets A Festival To Celebrate His Life & Music

Artist: 
 
The Tony Mills Festival is a celebration of Tony Mills life and music, organized by Black Swan Productions, that will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at the Al Luppolo Saloon in Roletto (TO), Italy, from 3:15 to 11:30PM, in the context of a larger 3-day biker fest.
 
There will be six bands, selected by a team of Italian record labels, playing a selection of their original material and Tony Mills songs from his different projects.
 
The festival will close with a rare headlining performance by Docker's Guild, who will present a special show made exclusively of material featuring the voice of Tony Mills (Docker’s Guild, Shy, TNT and solo works). As many of you already know, Tony Mills was diagnosed with terminal cancer in April 2019, so a huge fundraising effort is underway to collect as much money as possible for cancer research in Italy. Please show your love for Tony and support the cause! Also, visit the Official Facebook Page and follow all the news and updates.
 
DISCLAIMER: the Tony Mills Festival is officially supported by the Mills family, but Tony Mills will NOT appear.

If you are having a hard time keeping up with your Swedish melodic rock bands, you aren’t alone. But Roulette are one you must make time for. Their new album Now is a master class of slick melodic rock with an old school sound, but a contemporary production.
 
Despite being around since 1985 and releasing several singles and a ‘best of’ compilation, this is technically their debut album. And what a way to make a splash.
 
I simply love the lower register vocals of Thomas Lundgren – moody, powerful and perfect for the band’s commercial style. Add in an even balance of guitars and keys and a tight rhythm section and you get a must have record.
 
The band seem to effortlessly fly through multi-layered harmonies on tracks like Never Enough, Keep On Dreaming, Better Day and Another Night – pure melodic bliss. Elsewhere its simply more high-standard Scandi-AOR/melodic rock, performed just the way we like it, and beautifully produced I might add. Only with track 3, Soldiers Of Love do the band stumble. Its not a big deal, but its my least liked track the band has recorded and at track 3 it halts the momentum of the album a little.

Another highly recommended, thoroughly professional slice of classic melodic rock right here. Let’s hope the guys keep the momentum flowing now and are back soon with more.

I’ve been a registered Crazy Lixx fan from day 1. I think the band shot themselves in the foot with their musical left turn on the third album Riot Avenue and have spent the last two albums re-establishing the sound their first two set up.
 
Now we have album number six already! Forever Wild is the new definitive Crazy Lixx album. The new lineup established with Ruff Justice has gelled and whatever the guys had in mind for this album, as far as delivering something great for fans, they’ve nailed it.
 
If there’s a better album in this space this year, I’ll be surprised. This is an album that has one glorious hook filled anthem after another. There’s some variety in amongst the songs and some longer than others which are cool to explore.
 
The band in my mind is getting close to their Swedish friends H.E.A.T for sheer enjoyment and bringing the old school ‘fun factor’ to melodic hard rock.

Fantastic album from start to finish without a filler in sight. Anthems, choruses and hooks from the opening riff to the closing beat. Brilliant!
