RICK SPRINGFIELD To Release 'Stripped Down' Package

 
Loud & Proud Records will release a CD/DVD combo of RICK SPRINGFIELD Stripped Down on February 10.
 
With all of his accomplishments as an actor, best-selling author and documentary subject, Rick Springfield s first love has always been music, a passion he s harbored since first picking up the guitar at the age of 12 in his native Australia.

During Rick Springfield s 40+ year career, the artist has amassed 17 Top 40 hits, including four Top 10 s as well as achieving an iconic cultural moment with the Number One hit Jessie s Girl, for which he won a 1981 Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. And after 25 million records sold, Springfield shows no signs of slowing down. I put everything I've got into making records, he says. Sometimes people may think they have you pegged but I trust the music to speak for itself.

ECLIPSE Exclusive 'Armageddonize' Pre-View

 
AN EXCLUSIVE TRACK BY TRACK COMMENTS AND AUDIO PREVIEW OF THE MAGNIFICENT NEW ECLIPSE ALBUM Armageddonize
 
Starting with the first two tracks:
 
I Don't Wanna Say I'm Sorry - After a brief build up, we are away with one of the catchiest hard rockers that Eclipse has delivered yet. It has all the energy and sonic impact of Bleed & Scream, but the chorus is an monster AOR anthem. The riffs run fast, the power unmistakable. Erik Martensson sounds amazing and Magnus slays on guitar. The rhythm section is just as powerful as the sonically brilliant last album.

AC/DC - Rock Or Bust (Review)

Review: It’s an AC/DC record.
 
Ok, so I guess I should elaborate.
AC/DC shrugs off recent bad news (Malcolm Young) and bad press (Phil Rudd) to deliver another riff heavy volume of music to their incredible catalogue of tunes.
What hasn’t changed in decades is the band’s sound, style and lyrical naffness (can that be a word please?).
But that naffness is forgiven with the first riff of Angus’ guitar, which is as essential to rock n roll life as oxygen and electricity.

WHITE WIDDOW - Crossfire (Review)

 
Glorious! Aussie AORsters White Widdow are back with their third studio album after the untimely passing of drummer George Kristy and the departure of original bass player Trent Wilson.
A rejuvenated new line up, featuring Ben Webster on Bass and Noel Tenny on Drums fired the band back to life and the result is this stunning classic 80s AOR album that is packed with layers and layers of vocals, harmonies and lush lush keyboards.
The album packs a bigger punch than their first two. The production is tough and tight and the rhythm section is really pumping.
