RAVENEYE Video Debut For 'Hero'


Up and coming British rockers RavenEye have unveiled a stirring new video exclusively with Kerrang! Hero is taken from their highly-anticipated debut record, NOVA, which will be out on September 23 via Frontiers Music Srl.

Speaking about the song, singer/guitarist Oli Brown says: 'Hero, ironically, is inspired by the idea of complacency and how it can lull one into feeling bigger than who one really is and for all the wrong reasons. RavenEye is driven by the idea of pushing harder everyday, rather than taking a backseat to other people's efforts. Believing you're the hero ' while others are left to pick up the pieces and fix the 'wreckage left behind'.'
Here is a link to the exclusive premiere of the video: http://www.kerrang.com/44588/raveneye-unveil-new-video-hero

EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER “From the Beginning” Greg Lake, Carl Palmer’s Memories Of Keith Emerson

Artist: 

Dallas, TX July 26, 2016 -  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands  hosts Greg Lake and Carl Palmer of Progressive Rock’s first supergroup, Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

If you asked any followers of the white hot London music scene in 1969 to wager on who would emerge as the most innovative bandleader, the smart money would have been on  Jimmy Page’s Led Zeppelin, King Crimson’s Robert Fripp, and the featured soloist fronting a three piece called The Nice, the impressive keyboard player Keith Emerson. So when Emerson surprised everybody by announcing his departure in order to team up with King Crimson bassist, singer, songwriter Greg Lake and Crazy World of Arthur Brown/ Atomic Rooster percussionist Carl Palmer, the stage was set for “the maximum amount of music by the fewest musicians”, as Greg Lake tells us.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer elevated the progressive rock movement by taking the synthesizer out of the science lab and onto FM rock radio, where ultimately millions of listeners would respond in favor. “Lucky Man” from their debut may have been their most famous song, and their fourth album Brain Salad Surgery may have been their best seller, but 1972‘s Trilogy came at the high watermark of progressive rock’s quality and popularity, and has remained a favorite over years of changes in rock music.

The final curtain did indeed come down on “the show that never ends, my friends...” in March of this year with the sudden death of Keith Emerson. The keyboard maestro had been struggling with a repetitive stress injury in his right hand for almost twenty years, according to Carl Palmer. “In July 2010 we played the High Voltage Festival, one of the first Prog Rock festivals and I noticed that the standard we reached really wasn’t where we’d left off Keith understood immediately.. He’s a realist. He knew the game was up.”

Emerson, Lake and Palmer ./ InTheStudio interview program is available now to STREAM at:

ROADKILL Sign to MelodicRock Records For 'Extinct'

Artist: 
 
MYSTERY ARTIST REVEALED!
 
MelodicRock Records is once again turning ‘metal’ for a new release September. And we didn’t have to look far. MRR is proud to announce the signing of the first Tasmanian band to the roster.
 
ROADKILL will release their new album Extinct via MRR on September 9.
 
Formed in April 2006 - ROADKILL is an 'old school' styled high octane, rock 'n' roll band that re-introduces that genre to the world!
 
ROADKILL released their debut album, "God Bless America" in 2007, produced by Brett Collidge at Izaneer Studios in Tasmania. It contained 12 in-your-face anthems including, Get Outta My Way, Lazy, God Bless America, Living In Hell, Day After Day and Hollywood – all proving popular in concert.
 
The band were then 'off the road' for two years from 2008 - 2010 due to two band members being involved in separate, serious car accidents while another member had to leave due to heart problems.
 
After a couple of personnel changes, the band settled with the current line-up of: Neil Steel - vocals, Zig - guitars, James Basser - guitars, Ted Tedington - bass guitar and Brendan 'Squid' Shelverton - drums.
 
The bands' second album finally surfaced in 2012. "Profanity & Innuendo" was produced by Michael Shelley (Tyrant/Rogue Sharks) and featured a more 'hard rock' flavour and included more anthems: Sex Drugs Rock N Roll, Rude Crude And Tattooed, Dirty Girls, Backstabbers and Every Dog Has It's Day.
 
Now ROADKILL are set to release their new 10 track album, "Extinct" on September 9.
The new album is a major step up for the band. The sonic energy is palpable. The set was produced by Joe Haley (Psycroptic) and the overall sound incorporates classic hard rock songs full of tenacity including the lead video, 'Ready For War', out now.
 

 
ROADKILL state their influences include some classic rock heavyweights such as AC/DC, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Accept, Skid Row, Buckcherry, Guns 'N' Roses, Black Label Society, Motorhead, Primal Fear, Van Halen and a plethora of other great 'classic' bands.
 
ROADKILL delivers a full frontal attack, with music that is aimed straight at the hearts and minds of rock fans - who crave and miss their dose of high octane, charged rock 'n' roll!
 
Extinct – out on MelodicRock Records September 9.

EXTREME Celebrates 25th Anniversary Of Classic 'Pornograffiti' Album

Artist: 

'PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN' BLU-RAY/DVD/CD SEPTEMBER 23 

July 25, 2016 -- Last year marked the 25th anniversary of Extreme's classic multi-Platinum, Grammy' nominated PORNOGRAFFITTI, the definitive album of the band's career. To mark the anniversary, PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN will be released September 23 by the award-winning production company Rock Fuel Media in association with Loud & Proud Records as part of their four-part 'Metal Meltdown' DVD series. The concert film captures the Boston band performing the album PORNOGRAFFITTI in its entirety.
 
Directed by Brian Lockwood (Bon Jovi, Metallica, Motley Crue), the PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN package includes a Blu-ray, DVD, and audio CD of the complete concert that was filmed on May 30, 2015 at The Joint at the world famous Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. It also features Rockshow, a bonus documentary that takes fans through Extreme's story, with exclusive interviews, '80s archive footage, and an exclusive photo gallery. Mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, it's set for release September 23. A trailer can be seen here.
 
'It was a great thrill to perform PORNOGRAFFITTI in its entirety,' says singer Gary Cherone. 'Some of these songs were never played live before so we had to go back and relearn them for the tour.  The album was a watershed moment in the bands career'it's when we came in to our own and it will always be special.' 
 
As guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt continues, 'The band always prided itself on its live performance. Over the years, some of these songs have evolved where the band actually plays them better now than when we had recorded them. Hope you enjoy it. '
 
Extreme achieved their greatest success with their 1990 album PORNOGRAFFITTI, which peaked at #10 on the Billboard's 'Top 200 Albums' chart, and was certified multi-Platinum. Musically, PORNOGRAFFITTI is dominated by blistering guitar riffs, often with funky, syncopated timing, and incendiary, high-speed rock/metal solos. The record provided Bettencourt with widespread admiration from rock guitar enthusiasts and continual exposure in leading guitar playing publications. But it was the acoustic ballad single, "More Than Words,' that reached #1 on Billboard's 'Hot 100' chart and was nominated for a Grammy' Award for 'Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.' The subsequent single, "Hole Hearted,' another acoustic track, was also successful, rising to #4 on the same chart. "Decadence Dance" and "Get the Funk Out" were also released as singles both landing on Billboard's Rock chart and becoming fan favorites.
 
To date, the Grammy-nominated EXTREME have released five albums, plus a greatest hits set'selling over 10 million records worldwide.  The band's trademark sound is a mix of hard rock funk in the spirit and style of their predecessors Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Queen and Van Halen'fueled by BETTENCOURT's signature guitar flights and CHERONE's resonant vocals'and matched with a social consciousness in their lyrics.
 
Award-winning producer Barry Summers of Rock Fuel Media commented, 'It was a real privilege to produce PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN in celebration of PORNOGRAFFITI, to have the opportunity to work first-hand with such high caliber musicians and audio purists. Over 25 years after this iconic album was released, we captured the band at their very best. Watching Nuno Bettencourt's off-the-charts guitar solos is simply mind-blowing, as confirmed by Queen's Brian May and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, whom we filmed paying homage to the Guitar God himself in the RockShow documentary. One of the highlights of the documentary is a moment where Gary and Nuno are sitting on the doorstep of Gary's childhood home, and they perform a spontaneous version of 'More Than Words.''
 
Here's the complete song listing of PORNOGRAFFITTI LIVE 25 / METAL MELTDOWN:
 
1.    Decadence Dance
2.    Li'l Jack Horny
3.    When I'm President
4.    Get the Funk Out
5.    More Than Words
6.    Money (In God We Trust)
7.    It ('s a Monster)
8.    Pornograffitti
9.    When I First Kissed You
10.  Suzi (Wants Her All Day What?)
11.  Flight of the Wounded Bumble Bee
12.  He-Man Woman Hater
13.  Song For Love
14.  Hole Hearted
15.  Play With Me*
16.  Cupid's Dead*

We know it has been a little bit of a wait. But we really wanted to ensure this would really knock your socks off!! Both label and band owe it to you to deliver and not let you down.
 
Everyone from top to bottom wanted to make sure that this album was not only good, but it was THAT GOOD!!!

I couldn't be happier or prouder of everyone involved with this release. We promise that it’s going to satisfy for sure.

Rock Company Introduces SIXTYNINE

Artist: 

Rock Company is very proud to announce the signing of prime Slovenian hard rock band Sixtynine! The international release of their album You Are Me (including no less that 3 bonus videos) is set for September 2, 2016.

They like to call it 'Organic R&R', a brew of the sinergy between band members Tomaz Klepac (lead vocals & acoustic guitar), Tadej Tadic (electric guitars), Danijel Brezec (bass guitar) and Igor Marasovic (drums & percussion). And it is as hard hitting as the most potent organic ales or concoctions, a contemporary blend of rock that is firmly, audibly and shamelessly rooted in the very best & most iconic rock classics, and that despite its modern approach has been crafted and recorded without the all to present contemporary aids such as autotune, drum replacement or timing adjustment or groove quantizing, samples, virtual instruments or guitar amp simulators. Organic, indeed!
 
A first taste of what you can expect:

One On One With Mitch Lafon - MICHAEL SWEET

Artist: 

STRYPER's MICHAEL SWEET guests on Ep. 242 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

LINK TO THE INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-242-michael-sweet-stryp

In the show's only interview, STRYPER's MICHAEL SWEET goes track-by-track with his fantastic new solo album One Sided War, talks about Stryper's 30th Anniversary To Hell With The Devil Tour, Boston, Joel Hoekstra, working on new Stryper music as well as the second Sweet/Lynch album. Plus, we amusingly discuss what it would be like if he fronted Van Halen and much more.

ONE SIDED WAR (Track Listing):

Bizarre (video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I31Sw_654rg)
One Sided War
Can't Take This Life
Radio
Golden Age
Only You
I Am
Who Am I
You Make Me Wanna
Comfort Zone
One Way Up
Can't Take This Life (featuring Moriah Formica)
Not To Be (Japanese Bonus Track)

Quotes from the interview:

The sound of One Sided War (time 2.12): "I grew up with bands from Iron Maiden and Judas Priest to Journey... On this album I really wanted to focus on the heavier side. Songs like I Am, Bizarre and Golden Age that are just straight-ahead metal."

time (3.17): "I've heard the comment thousands of times (with a sneer) from people saying, 'it's not as heavy as Stryper,' or 'it doesn't have the balls that Stryper has,' so I just wanted to put an end to those comments with this album."

Boston (48.43): "At that time, I was kind of burnt on the Stryper thing. It was refreshing to go out and do something different and I needed it. Standing on stage singing Boston songs every night was so surreal. Pinch me moments every night."

Van Halen (51.00): "If I got a call from Van Halen to go sing for Van Halen and the right circumstances... I would absolutely do it."
