DARE - Sacred Ground (Review)

  The Celtic AOR legend that is Dare rides again! Darren Wharton’s majestic band return with studio album number 7, Sacred Ground, their first set of new material in 7 long years. There’s always a lot riding on a Dare release, as they aren’t the fastest band around when it comes to delivering new albums. And speaking frankly, the two albums preceding this – Arc Of The Dawn and Beneath The Shining Water – while offering a taste of what we all love about this band, still managed to come up a little short when thinking back to the band’s unsurpassable classic debut Out Of The Silence. That album remains an iconic release and one of the best AOR albums of all time.

KEE MARCELLO 'Scaling Up' in October on Frontiers

Frontiers Music Srl proudly announces the release date of KEE MARCELLO's new studio album 'Scaling Up' on October 14th.

With 'Scaling Up', Kee Marcello is using his past as a springboard to take a giant leap into the future! With the new music firmly grounded in the songwriting tradition that made him a multi-platinum rock star in the first place, Kee explores the boundaries of melodic hard rock with a contemporary performance that nods to his past and employs sizzling production. This is an album all his fans will have to pick their jaws up off the floor after hearing!

Kee Marcello is a unique artist in the hard rock genre. He has never stopped evolving and growing as both a writer and a guitarist and the new album illustrates how much he has managed to raise the bar yet again with both his guitar playing, singing and writing.

Q5 - New World Order (Review)

  So Q5 return for album number 3, a mere 31 years since the cult classic When The Mirror Cracks first appeared. The Seattle rockers reformed for Sweden Rock Fest a few years back and decided to try and keep things going, with 3 original members joined by a new drummer and second guitarist. The band’s sophomore album saw them gain a cult following with its more keyboard infused melodic rock, a definite change of pace from the rawer 4-chord rock n roll of Steel The Light.

TRICK OR TREAT - Rabbit's Hill Part 2

    This is a strange one. Not known for their high profile, the Italian rockers still managed to find themselves on Frontiers to release the sequel to 2012’s Rabbits' Hill, Pt. 1. Trick Or Treat deliver their 4th and most accomplished album here, but it’s still not something that’s going to have universal appeal. For example, the album kicks off with a triple speed kick-drum driven frenzy, only to give up that momentum for a 2.5 minute acoustic renaissance piece that might seem more at home on a Blackmore’s Night record.

CIRCA - Valley Of The Windmill (Review)

  I’m not a fan of Yes. Never have been. Well maybe parts of 90125 and Big Generator, but otherwise no. Just not my thing. However, you cannot fault the musicianship or the song writing credibility of a band that has delivered for fans for over 40 years. Circa is formed by current Yes member Alan White (drums), former Yes member Tony Kaye (Hammond, keyboards), current Yes member Billy Sherwood (bass, vocals), and guitarist Jimmy Haun, who played on the Yes album Union.   So match that information with the fact the album features just 4 songs and you should know exactly what you’re getting here.

Crazy Lixx - Sound Of The Live Minority (Review)

  All any Crazy Lixx fan needs to know about this album is – does it sound any good? Yes it does. Of course it does! Crazy Lixx kick ass!   And here on this career covering live album are 13 hard hitting tracks of glorious Scandi-melodic hard rock. Does the live set cover everything? No, probably not. There’s always a song here or there some fan wished included, but for the most part the guys cover their bases.
