THE DEFIANTS - The Defiants (Review)

    Put Paul Laine, Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello together and you just know something special will evolve. The Danger Danger alumni join forces for the first time together as a trio, even if it’s a virtual trio, with the 3 members all recording in their own individual studios. Laine is still revered for his work with Bruno Ravel over 4 studio albums with Danger Danger (alongside Andy Timmons and Steve West) and of course Rob Marcello has been touring with the guys for years and most recently delivered an outstanding performance on the band’s Revolve album (with Ted Poley). If that confuses you, then you haven’t been paying attention to some of the best music of the last two decades!

TREAT - Ghost Of Graceland (Review)

  We all know what an astounding record Coup De Grace was, mainly because most of us are still playing it some 6 years since it was released. Where has that time gone?? With Ghost Of Graceland Swedish legends Treat warned us that they were changing things up a little for the new album – updating their sound for a modern day feel. And that they have done, but this is no leap into the unknown or unfamiliar territory. There are noticeable changes and some fairly contemporary sounds going on, but at the heart of this album is twelve absolutely cracking melodic rock songs that are driven by hooks, melodies and choruses to die for.

DRIVE SHE SAID - Pedal To The Metal (Review)

  I really wasn’t expecting much to be honest. I’m not sure why – maybe I had left over memories of the band’s last album from way back in 2003 or perhaps the horrid comeback album from Balance a few years back. But I’m pleased to say that for the most part, my expectations have been exceeded. Aside from band stalwarts Mark Mangold (keyboards, backing vocals) and Al Fritsch (vocals, backing vocals, guitar, bass), there are about 700 additional guest musicians appearing here, such as Ken Sandin bass; Pontus Engborg drums; Peter Yttergren drums; Kenny Aronoff drums; and Kurt Gellersted and Ricky Wheels guitars.

SHIRAZ LANE - For Crying Out Loud (Review)

    It’s always good to welcome new talent onto the scene and we need more of it. Finland has already delivered some impressive bands over the last few years and Shiraz Lane are the latest to arrive. The guys compare themselves with US giants Guns N Roses, Skid Row and Aerosmith; as well as local favourites The 69 Eyes, Amorphis, Lordi and Sonic Syndicate. The basic premise is therefore easy to understand. These youngsters in their twenties embody the kick ass, free rock n roll spirit that drives so many.

FAITHSEDGE Feat. Stryper/Ace Frehley/Mr. Big/Dokken Members Return With New Album

  Faithsedge is returning with ‘Restoration’, their third and most melodic release to date. Fronted by mastermind singer / songwriter Giancarlo Floridia, the band returns with a stellar line-up featuring Stryper bass player Tim Gaines, Ace Frehley / Mr .Big drummer Matt Starr and former Dokken guitarist Alex De Rosso. Both Keys and production have been handled by Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline/ Revolution Saints).   The approach is very melodic with an old school feel: 80's style hooks, big drums, slamming bass, epic keys and big production. At the same time the album keeps a current up to date feel with lyric content of today’s world mixed with a competitive metal feel. Giancarlo's songwriting approach mixed with each members experience and skills takes the album to new heights.

Silent Rage front man Jesse Damon is set to release his brand new solo album, Southern Highway, on April 22, 2016. Released by On Fire Records, the album was produced by melodic rock legend Paul Sabu. This is Jesse's sixth solo effort and features 10 brand new studio tracks. As Jesse puts it, "Southern Highway is a melodic driven southern rockin' hell of a good time!"

Known for his infectious hooks and hard rocking melodic sensibility, Jesse has redefined his sound this time around infusing a southern blues style straight out of Nashville while still maintaining the highest caliber melodic style his fans know and love.
