CASABLANCA Premiere New Track From Album 'Miskatonic Graffitti'

Artist: 
 
Sweden's Casablanca release brand new album 'Miskatonic Graffitti' September 25 (Despotz Records)
 
And right here at MelodicRock.com we are excited to premiere the first track from the album "Closer".
 
The track "Closer" is the second part of Casablanca's Miskatonic Graffiti concept album. 
 
In this section, the characters Mat and Josie find themselves confronted and chased by someone or something who has slipped through the passage to The Mountains and seemingly wants to kill the two of them.  The story takes a sudden turn when Sgt. Doom steps in. This is a classic horror story that ends in favour of the victim while the perpetrator faces a cruel and certain death.
 

 
  
 
C A S A B L A N C A:
Anders Ljung (Space Age Baby Jane) - Vocals
Josephine Forsman (Sahara Hotnights) ' Drums
Erik Almstrom (Bullet) - Guitar
Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper, Slash's Snakepit ) - Guitar
Erik Stenemo (Melody Club) - Guitar
Mats Rubarth - Bass
 
 
The third full-length album from Casablanca, is a concept album based on the Chuthulu mythology, with a twist. Before man The Old Ones ruled the world stated H.P. Lovecraft!
But before The Old Ones, The Original human being of the Golden Void (the Original) ruled the earth Casablanca now claims!

The Originals were creatures way beyond superstition and religion. Knowledge, enlightenment, style and rock 'n' roll was the real thing! But then came The Old Ones... Shackled and tossed away into another dimension by The Old Ones who soon would share their destiny. Ever since then The Old Ones have an urge to return and destroy the modern man and rule the world once again. However, The Originals also have an unwavering desire to somehow return and prepare humanity in time before The Old Ones return to throw the world into absolute darkness once again.

This is a story that instead of total cosmic terror, choose to highlight the passionate life stories standing strong in an almost hopeless situation. This is a story of those who despite the impending collapse of the civilization; do not give up the fight, or their dreams of sex, love, rock and fast cars.

Miskatonic Graffiti comes in three sections. In the first section (Enter the Mountains) The Phantom returns to our four dimensional space, approximately 200 years ago. The touchdown takes place in a location later to be called The Mountains, a place where gates to other worlds may appear.

COLD CHISEL Deliver 'The Perfect Crime'

Artist: 
 
It's a huge day of announcements for Cold Chisel fans.
 
The iconic rock band have revealed the title and release date of a brand new studio album, unveiled a handful of extra shows on their highly-anticipated One Night Stand tour and on top of all that they are excited to announce that they have coaxed Grinspoon out of an indefinite hiatus to be their special guests on 7 shows.
 
Cold Chisel's new album will be called The Perfect Crime and will hit stores on Friday, 2 October coinciding with the first gig on their One Night Stand tour at the Deni Ute Muster. Featuring songs drawn from recording sessions across 2014 and 2015, the album will be kick-started by the single Lost, which will be released to radio and TV tomorrow, Friday, 28 August. Pre-orders for the album will also be available at all music retailers from tomorrow morning.
 

 
The newly announced extra shows on the One Night Stand tour will happen in Geraldton (WA), Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. The show at Adelaide's Entertainment Centre on Tuesday, 17 November is in direct reaction to the huge outcry from their hometown fans demanding a show on the national tour. Cold Chisel played a one-off show at the Clipsal 500 in March to over 35,000 people and thought that they had exhausted demand. But their fans let them know, in no uncertain terms, that this wasn't the case. The show at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on Thursday November 19 comes as Cold Chisel's headline show at Hanging Rock, Vic is about to sell out. The band has also announced that on Tuesday, 15 December they will play a third and final show at Sydney's Qantas Credit Union Arena to mark the closure of this iconic rock & roll venue. This additional Sydney date is very significant for Cold Chisel fans – it marks the anniversary of the final show of the band’s famous Last Stand tour, which ended at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on 15 December 1983.
 
Cold Chisel are excited to announce that they have managed to persuade the much-loved Grinspoon out of hiatus to be the band's special guests on 7 shows. Grinspoon have been added to the already-announced One Night Stand shows at 1300SMILES Stadium in Townsville on Saturday, 7 November and at the Darwin Amphitheatre on Tuesday, 10 November and they will join Cold Chisel in Adelaide, Melbourne and on all 3 shows at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney. This return of Grinspoon will be exclusive to these shows with Cold Chisel.
"We've done a couple of really memorable shows with Grinspoon," says Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes. "They played with us on our huge return show at Homebush Stadium in 2009 and they joined us for one show on the Light The Nitro tour in 2011 and that just happened to be the biggest show of the tour. They're a great band and a really good fit with Cold Chisel."
 
“To say we are excited to be supporting Cold Chisel is an understatement,” says Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson. “The show we played on the Light The Nitro tour was one of the most memorable shows I have ever played in my life! Arm in arm, all of us - Pat, Joe, Kris & I. Singing at the top of our lungs to 'Flame Trees'. Grinspoon have NEVER been arm in arm before. It was a moment. I think I may have even fallen into a bush in my excitement.
“I honestly didn’t think Grinspoon would be playing together again, so to get this opportunity by such a legendary act is humbling and completely out of the box insanely totally crazy fun. Now, what the hell am I going to wear?”
 
2015 is shaping up to be one the biggest and best in Cold Chisel's unparalleled four-decade career. "The Perfect Crime is probably the most rock & roll album that we’ve ever done," says Cold Chisel's primary songwriter Don Walker. "Now we can't wait to get out and play some of these songs on the One Night Stand tour."
 
Full event, ticketing and corporate information is available from the official Cold Chisel website: www.coldchisel.com
 
THE PERFECT CRIME - OUT ON FRIDAY, 2 OCTOBER
First Single – Lost - at media on Friday, 28 August
Album available for pre-order from Friday, 28 August

STATE OF THE NATION

It's time to admit I've bitten off more than a wombat can chew.
There has been so much in the pipeline these past few months that I've not been able to action everything needed and I've also been hit with some external delays.
So in regard to scheduled releases, here's what's happening:
 
The Radio Sun & Royal Mess CDs:
Preorders on schedule to ship prior to Sept. 25 release. 
European general release now October 9.
Street Talk reissues:
Long delay in artwork unfortunately, but finally went to press today (along with Radio Sun and Royal Mess). Should all be in order this week finally, so preorders will ship by Sept. 14.
USB2:
Way behind with this sorry, but I expect to have files formatted and ready to load next week and I will send out USBs in the order in which I received the preorders.
Again, sorry for these delays. Everything is in progress and coming...
I think I need an intern...
MRCD13: It's coming... track list just about finaized and it's looking REALLY strong! To those that pre-ordered with USB2, it will ship separately ASAP.
 

October MRR announcements pending! Try this one for size... http://www.melodicrock.com/audio/MRR-October2015.mp3

THE LIZARDS Feat. Ex-Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Cactus & Riot Members Release New CD

Artist: 

Special Guest Appearances By Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush) and Vinnie Moore (UFO)!

NYC - The long awaited new album from Classic Rock legends The Lizards, featuring members of Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Cactus and Riot, will be released in September 2015 on Hyperspace Records in partnership with drumming legend Carmine Appice’s Rocker Records. Titled “Reptilicus Maximus”, the band's 7th album features guest appearances by Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush) and Vinnie Moore (UFO)! Once again the breathtaking cover artwork was created by longtime Lizards artist Rick Klemann.

“These hard rockin' Lizards have slithered their way to the top of the new 'original' classic rock heap. Like their alien counterparts they are simply out of this world!” - Nightwatcher's Rock Blog

The Lizards are drummer Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow/Black Sabbath/BOC), vocalist/keyboardist Mike DiMeo (Riot/Masterplan), bassist Randy Pratt (who also plays harp with Cactus) and guitarist Patrick Klein (who recorded and mixed the album), and have released seven critically acclaimed albums and three live DVDs in the past 13 years. The band's 2006 release “Against All Odds”, and their covers album from 2009 “Archeology”, garnered rave reviews from fans and music press alike worldwide, catapulting The Lizards into legendary status!

“Loved hearing The Lizards when they opened for UFO. Cool riffs, grooves and musicality with Mike DiMeo's killer vocals on top. Awesome new record and I am glad to be a part of it.” - Vinnie Moore, UFO

Says bassist and band leader Randy Pratt, “On our 7th CD, 'Reptilicus Maximus', we brought in a few of our touring buddies. David Lanik, of 'Sharks' kicks ass on 'Ton on the One', the opening track on the CD. Frank Marino, of Mahogany Rush, was the headliner on our first tour and dazzles on 'Evil Eyes', the second track. Vinnie Moore and UFO were the headliners on our LAST tour (so far). Vinnie shreds beautifully on 'Crash', a song I wrote the lyrics to in the hospital after my brutal car crash that sidelined us for awhile. We did a 2 month tour with Glenn Hughes and he came to New York to record 4 songs on our 6th CD, 'Against All Odds'. 'Miracle Man' is a song that he wrote specifically for The Lizards, and I believe we slay it. He and Mike DiMeo do another one of their over the top duets on the closing number on the record. We added Scott 'The Doctor' Treibitz on keys for this CD, adding some new textures, from dark and brooding synths and majestic pipe organ to honky tonk piano and funky hammond organ.”

“Having toured with The Lizards and getting to know the band personally, I was delighted when Randy asked me to play on a track with them.  And even if I hadn't gotten to know what a great bunch of guys they are, I still would have accepted the invitation gladly, because I just loved the track and the music they make.  With me it's always been about heart, and these cats bring it... straight from the heart.”
Frank Marino - Mahogany Rush

Says Randy, “The music runs from progressive rock to swampy blues, lyrics ranging from the sacred to the profaneall in the name of ROCK. Bobby Rondinelli told us that we got some of the best playing of his career on this record. Since he played with Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult, you can believe the drums are world class throughout!”

“I consider it a crime not to check out these hot sounding reptiles!” - Metalliville, UK

Rock Candy Records Latest - WHITE LION & JEFF PARIS

Artist: 

The following three new Rock Candy titles are available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com for a discounted price including postage to anywhere in the world for the next two weeks ending on September 3rd. 

JEFF PARIS 'WIRED UP' CANDY273

BACK IN THE mid 80's the world seemed fixated on melodic AOR, singer songwriters. Jon Bon Jovi, Richard Marx and Bryan Adams were of course leading the field, but just below the surface there were numerous contenders ready to ascend the throne. Jeff Paris was, naturally, a prime contender, with songs and a sound that suggested success would be a sure fired certainty. That he sank without trace remains one of life's great mysteries.

Signed to Mercury records by the very same person who inked Bon Jovi, Cinderella and Kingdom Come, the signs looked very good indeed. So good in fact that, despite a lack-lustre reception to Jeff's debut album 'Race To Paradise' the label dug down deep to back a follow up, the sensational 'Wired Up', a record brimming over with confidence and optimism. Produced by Tony Platt (AC/DC, Krokus and Foreigner) and mixed by Bob Rock (M'tley Cr'e, Bon Jovi, the CULT) the record was infused with some of the best melodic hard rock of the era.

Issued in 1987, to gushing reviews, the album contains ten melodic rock nuggets, garnished with razor sharp guitars and a souped up rhythm section part consisting of future Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum. Tracks such as 'Saturday Nite', 'Charmed Life' and Cryin' (later successfully covered by all female rock band Vixen) makes for an album that not only exudes excitement but showcases Paris as an exceptional songwriter.

SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, 12 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, NEW INTERVIEW WITH JEFF PARIS, 2,500 WORD ESSAY, ENHANCED ARTWORK AND RARE PHOTOS.

TRACK LISTING: 1. SATURDAY NITE 2. ONE NIGHT ALONE 3. TRIAL BY FIRE 4. CRYIN' 5. WIRED UP 6. CHARMED LIFE 7. I CAN'T LET GO 8. HEART TO THE FLAME 9. A MATTER OF TIME 10.  ILLUSIONS

WHITE LION 'PRIDE' CANDY268

WHITE LION'S RISE to stardom was not without its fair share of difficulties. It started off well with Mike Tramp relocating from his native Denmark to the East Coast of America and teaming up with virtuoso guitarist Vito Brata. Securing a coveted record deal with Elektra Records the band looked set for bigger and better things, but it all came crashing down when the label inexplicably decided not to release their debut album. Fortunately a record deal and a new loyal fan base in Japan and Europe carried the torch helping them to get back in the ring and fight another day.

It was a struggle well worth contesting and one that ultimately paid handsome dividends when Atlantic Records eventually signed the band. Electing to work with seasoned producer Michael Wagener (Dokken, M'tley Cr'e) and recording in Los Angeles, 'Pride' hit the racks to great critical and commercial acclaim. Stuffed to the brim with numerous red-hot slices of melodic yet heavy rock, the album fast became one the era's cornerstone releases, packing punches and knocking down barriers.

Originally issued in June 1987, the record was propelled by the catchy single 'Wait', a track that caught fire at both radio and MTV, helping to establish the band as front line contenders. However, it was the power ballad 'When The Children Cry' that really accelerated sales, to two million and counting. Truly, one of the most heart-warming outcomes in the music business.

SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, FIVE BONUS TRACKS 16 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, NEW INTERVIEW WITH JEFF PARIS, 4,000 WORD ESSAY, ENHANCED ARTWORK AND RARE PHOTOS.

TRACK LISTING: 1. HUNGRY 2. LONELY NIGHTS 3. DON'T GIVE UP 4. SWEET LITTLE LOVING 5. LADY OF THE VALLEY 6.  WAIT 7. ALL YOU NEED IS ROCK N ROLL 8. TELL ME 9. ALL JOIN OUR HANDS 10. WHEN THE CHILDREN CRY
BONUS TRACKS: 11. WAIT (Extended Remix) 12. ALL YOU NEED IS ROCK N ROLL (Live) 13. LONELY NIGHTS (Live) 14. LADY OF THE VALLEY (Live) 15. TELL ME (Live)

WHITE LION 'BIG GAME' CANDY269

THE PROBLEM WITH any commercially successful album is that at some point its follow up will be compared and judged not only economically but also creatively. This was exactly the position White Lion were to face with the release of their third album 'Big Game', a record that promised so much, yet, inexplicably, underperformed. Some say that there is a time and a place for everything and, sadly, this time around, lady luck had moved her sights elsewhere.

'Big Game' was, actually, not a disappointing record at all. In fact it was a fine follow-up to their double platinum selling 'Pride' album, but it was recorded in a state of high anxiety. The band had spent almost a year touring the world and was immediately ushered back into the studio by their label and managers who were eager to capitalise on the success, so there was pressure to write and record in double quick time.

Working once again with trusted producer Michael Wagener, and recorded in Los Angeles, the band jumped head-first into material, written by Mike Tramp and guitarist Vito Brata over an intense three day session. That they came up with a number of quality songs is testimony to their talent and tenacity. Pitched somewhere between Led Zeppelin and Van Halen, tracks such as the lyrically poignant 'Little Fighter' and 'Cry For Freedom' lead the charge but it's their creative cover of Golden Earring's 'Radar Love' that more than steals the show.'

SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, THREE BONUS TRACKS 16 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, NEW INTERVIEW WITH JEFF PARIS, 3,500 WORD ESSAY, ENHANCED ARTWORK AND RARE PHOTOS.
TRACK LISTING:  1. GOIN' HOME TONIGHT 2. DIRTY WOMAN 3. LITTLE FIGHTER 4.  BROKEN HOME 5. BABY BE MINE 6. LIVING ON THE EDGE 7. LET'S GET CRAZY 8. DON'T SAY IT'S OVER 9. IF MY MIND IS EVIL10. RADAR LOVE 11. CRY FOR FREEDOM.

BONUS TRACKS: 12.  WAIT (Live on Westwood One) 13.  ALL JOIN OUR HANDS (Live on Westwood One) 14.  WHEN THE CHILDREN CRY (Live In Rehearsal)

I highly recommend Blackout States to anyone who's even a little bit interested in what real, authentic, high energy rock 'n' roll at its best sounds like today."
