CRY OF DAWN Featuring Goran Edman Due September 23

Artist: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to present CRY OF DAWN, a new melodic rock/AOR project featuring Goran Edman on all lead vocals. The self-titled debut album will be released on September 23rd.

Over the years, Goran Edman's unique vocal style has been showcased in numerous genres including neoclassic metal, progressive rock, and AOR, just to name a few. His vocal stylings can be found on records by John Norum, Yngwie Malmsteen, Brazen Abbot, and Glory, among others.
CRY OF DAWN is Goran Edman's latest musical adventure: a straight ahead AOR / melodic rock album which highlights his amazing vocal abilities on superb songs written especially for him by the likes of Michael Palace (Palace, First Signal, Kryptonite), Steve Newman, Alessandro Del Vecchio, Soren Kronkvist, Daniel Palmqvist and Robert Sall among others.

'It's been a privilege to work with all  these  good songwriters within the genre of classic  AOR,' tells Goran. 'The conformity of the production has a good red line with a straight forward melodic flow as you would expect. Its been a true pleasure performing it. The recording of the album took place in Daniel Flores' studio for the instrumental part while I did the vocals in my own studio. Personally I am grateful to be a part of this project and look forward to the fans listening to the album'.

The result is a true feast for the ears of all lovers of this music. Picture hints of the likes of Night Ranger, Journey, Bad English and Starship and you'll get a sense of what is in store for you! Hear for yourself with an album sampler:

Another Preview Track From JADED PAST 'Believe'

Artist: 
 
MelodicRock Records is excited to reveal yet another new artist destined for bigger things. Plus at the same time, the label takes another musical turn with an album drenched in the authentic Midwestern rock n roll sound that such artists as John Kilzer, Henry Lee Summer and Little America delivered with such passion.
 
We’re talking about JADED PAST. And the new album ‘Believe’ will be released via MelodicRock Records on August 19.
 
Here is another full length preview from the album - check out the killer tune 'Dont Judge':
 

 
 
This is the second album for the band, with the debut released independently in 2012. Jaded Past is the creation of lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter George Becker.
George has been a long time veteran of the East Coast music scene and has shared the stage with numerous national acts.
 
George has been in the studio, working tirelessly with producer Steve Brown (Trixter, 40ft Ringo), who also contributes some guitars and backing vocals for this release.
The result is a genuinely warm and engaging record that takes a guitar driven American rock sound and mixes in some Midwestern John Mellencamp styled high energy rock-n-country.
 
Following the release of the CD, Jaded Past will embark on a number of live performances beginning with a headlining show at the Jersey shore on August 13, 2016.
 
Then in the late fall, Becker will take Jaded Past on the road in support of the new CD release in areas spanning the East Coast, New England, Midwest, Southern Region and possibly The West Coast. For the 2016 live shows, Becker has enlisted the amazing line-up of Scott LaFlamme on lead guitar, Jason Cornwell on bass and Rob LaFlamme on drums.
 
A full 2016 concert schedule can be viewed at www.jadedpast.com.
 
George Becker also plays an array of Acoustic Solo and Duo shows all over the New Jersey / New York and Pennsylvania area and in 2016 will be branching out into Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maryland. These dates can also be found on the Jaded Past website.
 
Produced, Recorded, Mixed and Mastered at Mojo Vegas Studios in Ringwood, NJ by Steve Brown.
 
Special Guests:
Steve Brown: Guitars / Backing Vocals
Dennis Zimmer: Drums
Ed Masterson: Harmonica
 
Track Listing:
01. Tattered
02. Don’t Judge
03. Believe
04. Good Bad Innocent
05. Whiskey Dreams
06. Be My Lady
07. Dashboard Jesus

PARIS Launch First Video From 'The World Outside'

Artist: 
The World Outside
Produced By: 
Steve Newman
Running Time: 
51
Release Date: 
July 1
Released: 
Worldwide
Genre: 
Melodic Rock
 
European AOR group PARIS are excited to publish their brand new video for the song End Of My World, from the album The World Outside.
 
MelodicRock Records is excited to announce a new partnership with French melodic rock band PARIS. The band’s new album ‘The World Outside’, was released via MRR on July 1 in two configurations – the regular edition and a limited Special Edition featuring 2 exclusive bonus tracks.
 

 
 
THE LIMITED EDITION VERSION AVAILABLE NOW!
 
ORDER PARIS 'The World Outside' $15 (+$5 shipping)
 
 
 
MRR DOUBLE DEAL - OUTLASTED and PARIS for $30 (and still only pay $5 shipping)
 
 
 
This follows the band’s debut album ‘Only One Life’ (produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio) which was released in 2013.
 
PARIS are:
Frédéric Dechavanne: Lead & Backing Vocals, Keyboards
Sébastien Montet: Lead & Rhythm Guitars
 
For album number two, the PARIS story hasn't changed: it's still the story of two friends since the youngest of age, growing up in the suburbs of Paris and fancying the same kind of music in the second half of the eighties! Life separated the pair geographically, but music kept them united.
 
‘The World Outside’ is expertly produced and mastered by Steve Newman - further entwining himself in the PARIS story. The British melodic rock singer/producer had added background vocals on the debut and repeats that role here, adding his voice once again to the rich harmonies on this album.
 
The result is the perfect mix of the band’s pleasing AOR debut, with the harmony drenched trademark that is found on the NEWMAN records.
Rounding out this album’s lineup is Steve's English teammates David Bartlett (bass) and Rob McEwen (drums), ensuring the best possible presentation for these songs.
And because the PARIS story is all based on friendship, Seb made sure that Robert Säll was involved again on one song, like on the debut and Alessandro Del Vecchio adds backing vocals on one track.
 
Frédéric says: “We're still writing songs together and we have a bunch of great tunes waiting in the vault, either for a next PARIS album or for any band or artist that requires new material.” 
 

MelodicRock Records is excited to announce a new partnership with French melodic rock band PARIS. The band’s new album ‘The World Outside’, will be released via MRR on July 1 in two configurations – the regular edition and a limited Special Edition featuring 2 exclusive bonus tracks.

MITCH MALLOY 'Making Noise' on New Solo Album

Artist: 
 
MITCH MALLOY ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF NEW SINGLE, MY THERAPY
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 17, 2016) – Rocker Mitch Malloy announces the release of his latest single and video, My Therapy, off the forthcoming full-length CD MAKING NOISE. This recording marks the first time Malloy has undertaken an album solely by himself from start to finish – songwriting, producing, instruments, mixing and mastering. “I have always brought in a few musicians or songwriters to work with me on projects in the past and have really enjoyed what they brought to the table. But this time, I was in a different place and really needed to work through everything musically by myself…thus, My Therapy!” said Malloy tongue-in-cheek.
 

 
Mitch has been busy this past year not only writing and producing his own album but also writing and producing projects for clients in his studio, Malloy Master Tracks. Mitch states, “I love working with young artists and passing the torch to a new generation of rockers.” Malloy Master Tracks is a full-service production facility that serves a variety of clients from hit acts and labels like Taylor Swift, Boys Like Girls, Kenny Loggins, Craig Morgan and Sony Music NY to singer/songwriters Victoria Show, Gary Burr and Billy Falcon and even voice over work for Outdoor Channel, Field & Stream and various other brands.
 
Malloy’s tenure as an artist has spanned several decades beginning as a regular on the New York music scene in the 80s. Mitch soon garnered a major recording deal with RCA/BMG Worldwide and achieved chart success and landed a coveted spot on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In the mid-90s Mitch was asked to replace Sammy Hagar as lead singer for Van Halen but after spending time and recording with the band he declined. “When the band appeared on the MTV Music Awards with Dave [David Lee Roth], the fans expected his return…I expected his return. I felt as cool as the opportunity was, it just wasn’t the right time,” said Malloy.
 
Mitch Malloy is scheduled to embark on the international MAKING NOISE tour beginning in August 2016 with tour stops including the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, Liverpool, Athens, Madrid, Malmo and Oslo, to name a few.

TYGERS OF PAN TANG New Studio Album October 21

 
TYGERS OF PAN TANG - new studio album via Mighty Music October 21
 
Once in a while in an band's career comes a special time, a period where you feel it's all finally coming together and that time I'm proud to say is NOW! The new Tygers album is finished, done and dusted and ready to unleash on our 'Tygertastic,' audience. You're gonna love this one, it's a MONSTER......', Robb Weir, founder and guitarist of Tygers Of Pan Tang, July 2016.
 
Who would have predicted that 2016 would turn out to be the most productively successful year since their early days for a band whose history stretches back to the birth of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal?  Much has been written about the role the Tygers played in the establishment of the movement and about the comings and goings within the band, but it is safe to say that the current line up brings a creative stability and a shared camaraderie that will keep them together, playing live and making records for some time to come.
 
The year began the signing of a new record deal with Scandinavia's premier rock&metal label Mighty Music giving the band the opportunity to record the material they had written and honed in a burst of activity in late 2015. Whilst the band were happy to produce themselves at The Blast Studio in Newcastle they knew that the mix needed a fresh pair of ears.
 
Mighty Music CEO Michael H. Andersen recommended Soren Andersen/Medley Studio for the mix of the album. Having heard and been impressed by material recorded and mixed by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Mike Tramp) the Tygers sought out his services. Soren was only too happy to work with a band whose credentials were so firmly established. For the mastering, Harry Hess of Harem Scarem fame was the perfect man for the job.
 
Leaving the music in his capable hands, next stop for the band was South America. Having no idea what reception they would receive they were overwhelmed by the fierce dedication of the fans in Brazil and Columbia, who, in many cases, had waited years for an opportunity to witness the live show. From South America to Europe without a breath and then on to North America where they headlined Chicago's Ragnarokkr festival. To say they aced it is an understatement and in the words of the promoter "The Tygers started the first Ragnarokkr riot because people were so pumped up".
 
And the new material will be road tested with their first extensive UK dates for many a year. And, as we write, plans for worldwide dates in support of the album are already coming to fruition.
 
In late August first single 'Only The Brave' will be released on 7' vinyl ep with exclusive bonus track 'What You Say' from the album recording session. A music video for 'Only The Brave' is being shot as we speak.
 
The long awaited comeback album "Tygers Of Pan Tang" will be released worldwide Friday 21st of October 2016 on LP, ltd picture LP, CD and through all digital services.
 
Album Tracklist:
1. Only The Brave
2. Dust
3. Glad Rags
4. The Reason Why
5. Never Give In
6. Do It Again
7. I Got The Music In Me
8. Praying For A Miracle
9. Blood Red Sky
10. Angel In Disguise
11. The Devil You Know

Elektradrive - Over The Space 30th Anniversary Limited Edition
Release Date: 26 August 2016
 
Band is: Alex Jorio - Drums / Elio Maugeri - Lead Vocals / Simone Falovo -Guitars /
Stefano Turolla - Bass / Eugenio Manassero - Keyboards
Produced and Mastered by Simone Falovo for Elektradrive Productions 2016
 
Track listening: 1-Intro - Beginning 2-Secret Of The Holy Grave 3-Time Machine 4-
Lord Of The Rings 5- Fortune Teller 6-Snake (Slip on…) 7- Against The Stream 8-Take
Off 9-…Over The Space /10-Song Fr Feeling 11-Clash Of Titans 12- Midnight Passage
 
Bonus Tracks: 1- Let it Survive 1984 / 2-Brian Storm 1984 / 3- Winner 1985 / 4-Riding
The Wind (As Overdrive) 1983 demo / 5-You Cant Stop Rock & Roll 1985 demo
(outtakes from OTS) 6- Against The Stream - Live 1986
 
Elektradrive is one of the most significant band in the history of Italian Hard Rock.
Born in 1981 as Overdrive, they are from Torino and they changed their name to
Elektradrive in 1983.
The band was formed 1986 to 1993.
 
Elektradrive debut single “Let it survive” was released on 1984 by Smoko Records, that
was at the times the label of Simone Falovo major brother, Stefano, who really
discovered the band in his family…
 
Immediately after Elektradrive were featured, in the same year on the compilation “HM
Eruption” with the song “Lord of the rings”, and in the compilation “Metallo Italia” with
“Winner” the year after. In 1985 the band produces a videoclip for “Winner”.
 
The band’s style then was a sort of hard/heavy rock similar at the sound of Iron Maiden/
Dio/Ozzy Osbourne/Michael Schenker Group, but with a nice presence of keyboards
synth sounds in it,so that Beppe Riva from Rockerilla Italian magazine, coined for them
the term “Space Metal” band.
 
Elektradrive's debut full length album, “Over the space” was finally ready and released
in 1986 with Discotto Records followed by a national tour. It was fully appreciated by
many European critics, like Dave Reynolds from “Metal Forces” and Kerrang!!
magazine who gave them 90/100 score.
 
The most famous and widely appreciated LP by Elektradrive, “Due” sees the light in
1989 with Minotauro. The sound is more class hard rock/AOR than the debut album, and
“Due” receives an excellent feedback from the international press, including a rate of 5
K’s (top of the score!) on Kerrang! Magazine (in the same number, Whitesnake took
3K’s with “Slip of the tongue). Many Italian critics declared them “Italian AOR Gods”.
The band played many gigs all around Italy, and the most important was as supporting
band with Manowar at Palasport, Torino. An intensive international tour follows. In 1990
Elektradrive played some live shows L.A. amongst the others, the noteworthy night at
the famous Roxy Theatre in Sunset Boulevard.
 
After the comeback from USA, the band starts pre-production and writing new songs. So
the third album (the first released in CD and not vynel) came out with the title “Big
City” and released by Dracma Records in 1993. “Big City” is reviewed by many as
album of the month, and some Italian critics named them “the best rock band in Italy,
ever”. In 1994 “Due” and “Big City” are distributed in Japan by EMI/Toshiba and in
Europe by Long Island Records.
 
After almost ten years of silence, in 2004, Simone Falovo and Elio Maugeri, with the
original line-up of the beginnings, start writing songs for a new album: “Living 4” which
is released by Valery Records in 2009, and got a lot of very rave reviews from all the
Italian and european magazines.
 
Considered by many critics a masterpiece (it took the band three years of hard work for
writing and recording process) “Living 4” is a mature concept album of modern-bluesy-
AOR-hard rock with committed lyrics about environment, water scarcity, corporations,
and general concerns on the state of our planet.
 
They received airplay by Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson in his BBC show, and he
described the band as melodic and classy hard rock band, a “bunch of veterans from
Turin”.

SEVENTH WONDER Sign To Frontiers For Live Release


Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of Seventh Wonder's first live album 'Welcome To Atlanta Live 2014' on September 23rd! Pre-orders are available here: http://radi.al/SeventhWonder

One of the major draws of the fifteenth edition of ProgPower USA, that was the opportunity to get to see Sweden's finest progressive metal band, Seventh Wonder perform their signature album 'Mercy Falls' in its entirety. And judging by the crowd's reaction on that night, it was obvious that the fans had been waiting for this for a long time. Not content, the band played again the following day to a crowd of gold badge-holders and VIPs, including singer Tommy Karevik's mates from his other band KAMELOT, and performed a bunch of songs from other albums which were not played the night before.

All in all it was a genuine and raw performance and this live album sums up very well all the best material included in Seventh Wonder's acclaimed first four albums and lets you know what to expect in terms of direction of new material to come. In fact, the band decided to round out this amazing release with two studio tracks. One is the awesome 'Inner Enemy', already available on YouTube: https://youtu.be/i2lmXuNS0u0 The other song, 'The Promise', is an epic track of almost 10 minutes in length which highlights the multifaceted talents of this band.

Bass player Andreas Blomqvist says, 'It has been a dream of mine for many, many years to be able to record and release a solid live product. Fans of music such as ours usually enjoy watching live performances as the musicianship is often very much in focus. "Mercy Falls" was the perfect album to bring to the live setting, but we just never had a chance to pull it off before. Finally the stars aligned, and we made it happen. As icing on the cake, Frontiers stepped in to release it for us, which we are delighted about. We are very happy with the way it turned out, and the mix is nothing short of amazing! I am thrilled to be able to bring you guys this release and thankful that Frontiers chooses to prioritize this release right away, so that the fans starved for Seventh Wonder releases at last gets something solid to sink their teeth into while waiting for the upcoming studio album!'

This album aptly closes the first chapter of the band's history and works as a tasty appetizer for the new studio album planned for release in early 2017.

'Welcome To Atlanta Live 2014' will be available in two physical configurations: a 2 DVD set and a very special, limited edition deluxe digibook containing 2 CDs and 2 DVDs. Final tracklisting includes (CD version is only available in the deluxe edition 2CD/2DVD).

Frontiers Music Announce Signing of HELL IN THE CLUB


Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of HELL IN THE CLUB for a multi album deal!

Frontiers Music Announce The Signing of JACK RUSELL'S GREAT WHITE


Jack Russell's Great White represents the next phase of the iconic singer's Rock n' Roll legacy.

Since Jack Russell's Great White inception in 2011, the frontman welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana this time as a guitar player and keyboardist lead guitarist Robby Lochner (Rob Halford), drummer Dicki Fliszar (Bruce Dickinson) and Dan McNay (Montrose) on bass. The new album on the horizon, which is Jack's 14th studio album, boasts the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell an icon in the first place.

"I want to say how happy and excited I am about my band," states Jack Russell regarding the recent signing with Frontiers for the new album. "I have so much respect for Serafino, Mario, Derek and their team and am so thankful to be working with them. The band and I are off the hook about the new material. You are going to love it!"

The GRAMMY's nominated Great White originally broke out of the Los Angeles scene in 1984 with its self-titled debut. The record was followed by the sophomore release 'Shot in The Dark' and then by seismic platinum-selling outings such as 1987's Once Bitten... and 1989's 'Twice Shy (which reached #9 on the Billboard Album chart). Moving over 8 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock stalwarts into the 21st century until 2011, when Russell went on to form Jack Russell's Great White.

In 2014 JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE gave fans a taste of new music with the release of the single 'Hard Habit' which received rave reviews from fans clamoring for the 'classic' early sound of GREAT WHITE. Listen to 'Hard Habit' HERE: https://youtu.be/sZLGhYA8Pm4

Ultimately, the new music is for the millions of fans who stuck by Russell all these years. It's everything they've been waiting for and more. Russell leaves off, 'this is fun, first and foremost. I feel like I'm 27 again. I hope it sounds like Great White'but for 2016.'

Frontiers plans to release the new record in early 2017.

RAVENEYE Announces Debut Album Release Nova

Artist: 
 
Out September 23 – via New Album Deal with Frontiers Music Srl
 
Since forming in 2014, UK-based rock band RAVENEYE has toured globally, supporting bands such as The Darkness, Slash, Deep Purple, Halestorm and Blues Pills. The band has headlined their own tours through Europe and America and have performed at major international rock festivals such as Download Festival (UK), Hellfest (France), Azkena Rock Festival (Spain), and will also perform at this year’s Maximus Festival in Brazil and Argentina this September. Their incendiary live shows have captivated crowds and put them on the map as a ‘must see live’ band.  Now, the follow-up to their wildly successful debut EP, Breaking Out, RAVENEYE’s full length album, NOVA, will be released worldwide on September 23 and will be the first for their new label, Frontiers Music Srl
 
Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, Down, Anders Osborne), who engineered the debut EP, took over as producer to capture the band’s true sonic identity on NOVA. Together, they worked at Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey for 25 days and created an eleven-track album that pushed the band beyond its boundaries and into new ground. From the hard hitting riffs of “Inside”, “Madeline” and “Hero” to the raw sounds of “Wanna Feel You” and “Oh My Love’ to the stark reality of life and death in “Eternity”, NOVA takes you on a journey of defiance, pain, hate, death and, yes, love. 
 
With songs filled with deep, bluesy grooves and infectious hooks that invoke giants such as Led Zeppelin and Soundgarden , RAVENEYE (who formed just two years ago) continue to win fans over around the world with their huge sound and killer live shows. The extensive touring in 2015 laid the ground work for a hungry fan-base and, this past April, one year after the release of their debut EP, Breaking Out, the band debuted on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart
 
The critical acclaim has been just as loud with Classic Rock Magazine saying, "(RavenEye) deliver a thunderous set of the kind of feet-planted, head-bobbing groove-rock that has paid Pearl Jam’s cable bills for twenty-five years." And Rock at Night said of the Houston stop, “…their stage show was INSANE to watch!”
 
When RAVENEYE formed two years ago, the then 25 year old, Oli Brown, singer and multi-award winning guitarist, had already released four solo albums and toured the world for 10 years with legends such as Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter and Joe Satriani. Vegas24Seven said of the RAVENEYE frontman, Oli Brown captivated the audience”, Mojo Magazine hailed Oli as, “the hottest young pistol in British blues” and Classic Rock Magazine described him as "one of the best and brightest guitar heroes performing in the world today". RAVENEYE’s live performances take their present and future fans on a journey to the next level.
 
Track Listing for NOVA:
1.     Wanna Feel You
2.     Come With Me
3.     Inside
4.     Hero
5.     Supernova
6.     Walls
7.     Oh My Love

OPERATION: MINDCRIME 'Resurrection' Due September 23


Frontiers Music srl is excited to announce the release of 'Resurrection', the new album from Operation: Mindcrime, the brainchild of legendary vocalist Geoff Tate. The album is set for a worldwide release on September 23, 2016.

'Resurrection' is the second part of the musical trilogy from iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate. Following one year after the release of the debut album in September 2015, Operation: Mindcrime continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensr'che vocalist's iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music's most resolute forces and frontmen.

'The album 'Resurrection' is the second part of our three album presentation or trilogy. It continues the story that began on the first album 'The Key' with the near death experience of the lead character known as 'H' and his subsequent recovery of the missing encryption key. With the Key finally in his possession, 'H' has everything he needs to finally launch his long awaited project called 'The New Reality'. Or does he',' explains Geoff Tate.

Tate continued, 'I'm excited for people to hear and experience 'Resurrection' because I think it answers some of the questions that were posed in the first album, 'The Key'. Musically, it offers some of the most diverse and challenging material that I've ever written.'

Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three GRAMMY nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Video Music Awards along the way. The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman." By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music. From Mindcrime and Promised Land through 2009's overlooked gem American Soldier - Tate's ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans - Tate's 13-album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results.

'Resurrection' Track Listing:
1. Ressurrection
2. When All Falls Away
3. A Moment In Time
4. Through the Noize
5. Left For Dead
6. Miles Away
7. Healing My Wounds

HOUSE OF SHAKIRA Bring 'Sour Grapes' To Fans August 26

 
One of Sweden’s legacy melodic rock acts HOUSE OF SHAKIRA are ready to deliver the best serving of Sour Grapes you’ve ever been fed.
 
Keeping the momentum going since lead singer Andreas Novak joined the band, Sour Grapes is the band’s third since Andreas’ 2012 debut. And as like the last album, the band has taken things to the next level, with more harmonies, more chorus hooks and more layers of everything….including for the very first time – keyboards!
 
Says frontman Andreas Novak: "A witty bio-update would be nice...just really can't figure out what...it’s the same line-up...Feel free to improvise on that one, Andrew - it doesn't even have to be true, just as long as it's good."
 
Label CEO Andrew McNeice: "Following Andreas’ instructions, I’d like to claim that owning Sour Grapes will improve your standing with the opposite sex; it will cure you of any hangover; playing it loud to your neighbors will indeed boost your reputation as the coolest person in the street and best of all, buying a CD will infinitely increase the riches of the band and the record label, allowing us all to retire that little bit sooner to the tropical island we have put a deposit on.”
 
House Of Shakira are a Swedish rock formed by guitarists Mats Hallstensson and Anders Lundström that started out in Stockholm around 1991 under the moniker The Station. The mid 1990's saw the band change their name to House of Shakira, named after a London bordello.
 
In their 25 year history the band has released seven previous studio albums, all of which have left their mark, making the band one of Sweden's best known musical exports as well as hometown heroes. Their famed debut album "Lint" remains a genre classic.
 
The House Of Shakira line-up of Mats Hallstensson (guitars), Anders Lundström (guitars), Andreas Novak (vocals) and the blistering rhythm section of Basse Blyberg (bass) and Martin Larsson (drums) locked themselves away in the studio, in what’s become a ritual designed to produce more glorious Scandinavian melodies.
 
Following the albums “House Of Shakira" and "Pay To Play"; the brilliant new “Sour Grapes” will be released worldwide via MelodicRock Records/Cargo Records on CD August 26 and via digital outlets two weeks later on September 9.
 
 
And we are excited to debut the first brand new 2016 song for HoS right now. Here's 'Trial By Fire'!

SEVEN Storm Back With 'Shattered' Sept. 23

Artist: 
 
Escape Music Press Release / The acclaimed melodic rock outfit SEVEN return with their second album 'Shattered', out via Escape Music September 23.
 
Mick Devine - Lead Vocals
Lars Chriss - guitars, drums
Andy Loos - Bass
Fredrik Bergh - Keyboards
Kay Backlund - Keyboards
Guest vocals Nigel Bailey and Lin Devine
 
Produced and Mixed by Lars Chriss
Executive Producer : Khalil Turk
Mastered by Mike Lind
 
Tracks: Light Of 1000 Eyes / A Better Life / Fight / Shattered / Live This Life / Pieces Of You / Broken Dream / High Hopes / I Needed Time / Taking Over / Last Illusion
 
SEVEN originate from the AOR scene in the late eighties where Polydor records having been fairly successful in the U.K with the likes of
Magnum and Little Angels, set their sights on SEVEN, a relatively unknown act that had started life as a successful South African group,
reformed to hit the big time in the UK.
 
SEVEN toured extensively supporting an eclectic variety of acts that included the likes of Jason Donovan, Richard Marx, The Monkees and
Brother Beyond. It’s a time period that Mick Devine is keen to reminisce about, “Even though they were out and out pop gigs, we loved the
crowds and the noise. We went from pubs to opening to 3000 screaming fans in Southampton. It is a very addictive adrenaline rush. We got to
play all the top venues, which were fantastic; including Wembley Arena, the NEC, BIC, SEC and even the Royal Albert Hall. The Richard Marx
tour was definitely the best for us with a more grown up audience we were able to rock it up and truly be ourselves. It went down really
well!”
 
Entering the recording studios, with John Parr at the production helm, they recorded two very strong singles in the shape of “Inside Love” and
“Man with A Vision” both of which achieved moderate success in the UK.
 
In 2014 the original bass player Pat Davey was working alongside Robert Hart on an Escape Music album when the name SEVEN cropped up in
the conversation. It would seem that Khalil Turk was a big fan, as Devine explains, “Yeah, back in the day Khalil had really loved the band and
he got in touch to see if we would be interested in finally releasing an album,” Without too much convincing the project was born.
The production talents of Lars Chriss (who’s repertoire includes albums with Steve Overland, Chris Ousey) were enlisted to
produce the band’s debut album called ‘7’, which was released to critical acclaim and was held up as one of the “Albums of the Year” on
many lists.
 
SEVEN was born again!
 
Following the success of the first album, a passion was re-kindled within Devine & McFarlane, who began work on new material, and along
with the writing talents of Lars Chriss, Fredrik Bergh, Andy Loos, Kay Backlund and Jeff Paris, that passion was given focus and a place to
come to life. What they discovered was a well of untapped creativity that had been hidden for far too long and the songs poured out.
 
SEVEN ‘Shattered’ is a collection of wonderfully catchy songs that rely on clean and memorable melodies that allow Devine’s distinctive voice
to shine through. It was Devine who took the lead in writing the lyrics on this album, matching the intensity and feel of the music to deliver a
modern melodic rock album with influences ranging from hints of Foreigner in “A Better Life” and “Broken Dream”, Journey in “High Hopes”
and even traces of Magnum in “Light of 1000 Eyes” and “Last Illusion”.
 
The lyrical themes are drawn from a depth of life experience and observations and are heartfelt and real. The production talents of Lars
Chriss and the line up of truly great musicians, deliver an album of depth and variation which ranges from driving guitar-led tracks with
memorable riffs to melodic anthems, all backed by stunning keys, bass and standout solo’s. It is an album that is a worthy follow-up to the
critically acclaimed ‘7’.
 
This album represents a natural progression for SEVEN and it features 11 stunning tracks that are laden with great musical performances and
soaring vocals, and while being fresh and up to date, they have bite and edge and yet remain melodic and catchy
This is one superb follow up album that will not disappoint.

Frontiers Music Announce the Signing of SHADOWSPELL

Artist: 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the singing of SHADOWSPELL, a new melodic metal act born from a collaboration between Italian guitarist/songwriter Aldo Lonobile and vocalist Nils K. Rue.

Lonobile is best known for his extraordinary work with power/progressive stalwarts Secret Sphere. Throughout the world, Nils K. Rue has become a household name, having traversed the globe with Norwegian progressive metal giants Pagan's Mind.

The two musicians met for the first time in 2003 during the ProgPower USA in Atlanta, when Pagan's Mind and Secret Sphere were both featured on the roster. They forged a friendship that has lasted the last 13 years, leading to the creation of songs between performances and writing duties for their respective main bands.

The rest of the super group line-up features Symphony X bassist Mike LePond, ex- Gamma Ray/ex-Helloween/ex-MasterPlan drummer Uli Kusch and former bandmate of Lonobile in Secret Sphere, Antonio Agate (ex- Odd Dimension).

The concept caught the attention of Frontiers Music srl President, Serafino Perugino and went from being just an idea on paper and a few demos to the birth of Shadowspell!

Aldo Lonobile says that 'everytime Nils sings, he amazes me! The ideas we are working on are superb. The result will be a melodic metal album featuring lots of orchestrations, great solos and riffs and killer melodies. You can hear old Queensryche, Yngwie Malmsteen and Savatage influences! Be ready for a melodic metal jewel. I am very grateful to Frontiers for the chance to release this work which I am extremely proud of!'

"I am really stoked about this," says singer Nils K. Rue. "Some of the lyrics and melody lines I laid down on the demo songs we wrote over the years are really personal to me and I put my full heart into them. Between work with Pagan's Mind, Eidolon and other projects, the Shadowspell songs were a way to let out the real emotional part of me. Often recorded alone in my home studio, just before sunrise while in a very creative and intense mood, it mirrors the real me in a right way. It was like: I could come home heartbroken, with no one to talk to. So I started to record my emotions right there on Aldo's tracks only to put the whole thing on the shelf the next day, leaving it there for years. I couldn't think of anyone better to write emotional and heavy music with than Aldo, he's my soul brother musically and his compositions give me goosebumps."

Rat Pak Records Set To Release MICHAEL SWEET ‘One Sided War’

Artist: 
 
In what promises to be Stryper front-man Michael Sweet’s most intense solo release to date, “One Sided War” showcases a full plate of hard rock & classic metal riffs from start to finish. One Sided War marks Michael’s 7th studio solo album and it clearly proves that he is still at the very top of his game! “I’ll tell you about it”, says Michael, “Musically it’s my heaviest solo album. It’s not thrash metal but there are definitely some songs on there that will pop out at you. There are some songs that have a bit of the Iron Maiden / Dio feel to them, as well as some songs that have a little bit of a Van Halen influence to them. It’s a very guitar-oriented, hard rock/metal album with lots of melodies and hooks!”
 
Surrounding himself in the studio with Whitesnake guitarist Joel Hoekstra, Evanescence drummer Will Hunt, bassist John O’Boyle and East Coast shred-master Ethan Brosh, Michael began creating what would soon be known as “One Sided War”. Michael states “Originally I planned on showcasing my own guitar playing; I was going to do it all myself, but once I brought Joel & Ethan into the picture, things began to take a new direction and I am very happy with what we have accomplished”. Says Ethan Brosh about working with Michael, "He's one of those guys who have always been at the top of their game and has just never lost it and for me to be a part of this is very special". Joel Hoekstra comments "Michael and I actually go back to my time in Night Ranger when we opened for him when he was playing with Boston. Ever since then we've just been kind of collaborating and this is sort of a natural evolution getting to play on a few songs on his solo album".
 
The fast and furious opener “Bizarre” ignites the album’s pace with it's lightning fast riffage, soaring vocals and blazing guitar solos. Tracks like “Can’t Take This Life”, “One Sided War”, "Golden Age", “I Am” and “Comfort Zone” keep the metal fires ablaze, while tracks like “Radio”, “One Way” and “You Make Me Wanna” bring the hard rock vibe to the forefront . “One Sided War” features only one ballad, “Who Am I?”, a heartfelt, passionate song that reminds us of the softer side of Michael’s talents. Closing out the disc is a bonus track; it’s a different version of the song “Can’t Take This Life”, a duet with Michael and 16 year old up-and-coming female vocalist Moriah Formica. If you are a fan of Michael Sweet / Stryper or a fan of classic Hard Rock & Metal in general “One Sided War” is an absolute must have, you won’t be disappointed! Official release date is August 26, 2016
 
The CD was tracked at Spirithouse Recording Studios in Northampton, Massachusetts.

TOTO 'Live In Montreux 1991' DVD/CD Out Sept. 16

Artist: 
 
At the personal invitation of Quincy Jones and legendary Montreux Jazz Festival founder Claude Nobs to perform at the famed Swiss festival, Toto couldn’t resist the opportunity, resulting in Toto: Live At Montreux 1991. “From the perspective of the members of Toto,” states guitarist Steve Lukather, “the Montreux Jazz Festival is amongst the most revered events staged in the world. Our association, as a band, and individuals, is something we are deeply proud of. So much fun, and so much history has graced the ground in and around the lake.”
 
On September 16, 2016, Eagle Rock Entertainment will present this very special concert film from Toto’s storied history. Toto: Live At Montreux 1991 — the last tour with Jeff and Mike Porcaro, alongside original members Steve Lukather and David Paich — will be available on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, and Digital Video in North America [MSRP TBA].
 
In 1991, Toto was in the midst of a run of headline dates and European summer festivals, while finishing their new album Kingdom Of Desire. It was a time of rebirth for the band, and the Montreux stage proved the perfect opportunity to test drive the new songs. Fans could feel the electricity in the air as Lukather, Paich, and the late brothers Jeff and Mike Porcaro took the stage.
 
“Yes! Time to take a trip in the ol’ Toto Hot Tub Time Machine! Back to 1991, yes ‘91! Where pure live music was performed on hallowed ground under the paternal wings of Quincy Jones and Claude Nobs,” states keyboardist David Paich. “When I first listened back, the thought omnipresent in my mind was simply, ‘That’s that raw, sizzling energy we had in high school!’  Here we are – four valley dudes from Los Angeles with some assorted musical friends, bringing it once again.”
 
Sadly, this was Jeff Porcaro’s final tour with the band, before his passing in 1992. Lukather, who personally mixed Live At Montreux 1991 with legendary engineer Niko Bolas, expresses the real emotions that this concert channels, and how poignant it was to the band’s history:
 
“The most important thing is you can see and hear the love we have for each other and watching this in 2016 with Niko…well bittersweet is a term that has been so overused but in this case…there were tears and a lot of laughter as the memories of this night and this final tour with Jeff were captured.  You guys get to see a version of the band that will never and COULD never be again!”
 
Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of Toto. With over 38 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world.
 
As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5000 albums that together amass a sales history of a half a billion albums.  Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations. Their repertoire continues to be current via high profile usage on broadcast television.  They ARE pop culture, and are one of the few 70’s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles and enjoy a multi-generational fan base.
 
Last summer, they released their first new studio album in ten years –TOTO XIV – that debuted Top 10 in nine countries around the world and became their most successful album since 1988 in the U.S. and UK.  This August / September, the band will stage a headline tour of North America. Details are available via totoofficial.com.

JADED PAST Join MelodicRock Records with 'Believe' August 19

Artist: 
 
MelodicRock Records is excited to reveal yet another new artist destined for bigger things.

George has been in the studio, working tirelessly with producer Steve Brown (Trixter, 40ft Ringo), who also contributes some guitars and backing vocals for this release.

Following the release of the CD, Jaded Past will embark on a number of live performances beginning with a headlining show at the Jersey shore on August 13, 2016.
 
Then in the late fall, Becker will take Jaded Past on the road in support of the new CD release in areas spanning the East Coast, New England, Midwest, Southern Region and possibly The West Coast.

Frontiers Music Announce The Signing of Dario Mollo's CROSSBONES


Best known for his partnerships in the The Cage with Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath) and Voodoo Hill with Glenn Hughes (Black Country Communion, Deep Purple, California Breed), Italian guitarist Dario Mollo began his career in 1981 with the band Crossbones. With them, he released his first studio album in 1989, which was produced by Kit Woolven (Thin Lizzy, Magnum and UFO, among others) before getting involved in the production side of things himself.
 
'This new project, "CrossBones" was created with the intent to pay homage to the band from where it all started," says Dario. For the occasion, he brought back the drummer of the original lineup, Ezio Secomandi together with his regular collaborator Dario Patti on bass and keyboards.
 
The choice for the singer is Carl Sentance (Nazareth, Don Airey Band, Persian Risk, Krokus), who came at the suggestion of Don Airey of Deep Purple, during a recent visit to Dario's home. 'This album includes the best of all the experience I gathered in my career in music and in artistic production,' concludes Dario. The quality of the material he recorded is witness to that.
 
The album is planned for release towards the end of 2016, with tour dates to follow.

AOR Heaven Next Releases Announced: DANTE FOX & MISS BEHAVIOUR

Artist: 
 
Germany based label AOR HEAVEN will release the new album “Breathless” by DANTE FOX on August 26 and “Ghost Play”, the new album from Swedish Melodic Rock sensation MISS BEHAVIOUR on September 2.
 

Product: Miss Behaviour - Ghost Play
Release date: 02.09.2016
 
 
 
10 years after releasing their debut album Heart of Midwinter, Miss Behaviour is back with their 4th studio album Ghost Play. With Ghost Play the band is ready to take their career to the next level.
 
The breakthrough came with the album Last Woman Standing (2011). In spring 2011 Miss Behaviour competed in Swedish national radio with the song Till we meet again, making the premiere live performance with the current lineup in front of 400.000 radio listeners. Late 2011 the album Last Woman Standing won the Melodic.net ”Best AOR album of 2011” readers poll, and got fantastic reviews from magazines such as Classic Rock (UK), Sweden Rock Magazine (SE) and more. UK Magazine Classic Rock picked Cynthia as one of the best tracks in 2011, and featured the song on the compilation Classic Rock Buzz.
 
The band promoted Last Woman Standing with two successful tours in the UK, 2011 and 2012.
 
The follow up album to Last Woman Standing, entitled Double Agent was released in August 2014 on AOR Heaven. Once again the reviews were great - Classic Rock, Sweden Rock Magazine and Aftonbladet (SE) all praised - and this also earned them a slot on Stockholm Rocks Festival in November.
 
Ghost Play
Together with producer Patrik Magnusson (Crashdiet, Mick Mars among others), Miss Behaviour spent the entire 2015 writing and recording. Ghost Play is classic hard rock, with a great production and a great variety of songs. Everything is presented in a way that always been the essence of Miss Behaviour. Great melodies are in focus. This time it is presented, however, with a more powerful sound.

Australian Rockers KAATO Announce Debut Release

Artist: 
 
KAATO, independent rock band fronted and founded by Australian rocker Kurt Lowney have just released their debut self-titled album, produced by rock industry veteran Mitch Malloy.
 
KAATO came together in 2015 as Lowney began working with Nashville-based Malloy to write and record the self-titled KAATO album. "From day one, the musical chemistry between Kurt and me was undeniable.” says Malloy. Both were deeply rooted in the same musical influences.
 
Kurt has harbored the dream of KAATO since he was a 16-year-old recording in post-earthquake Japan in 2011. The Japanese called him Kaato (pronounced Kah-toe), meaning Kurt. It was during this time KAATO became Kurt's performance persona and stage name.
 
Kurt and Mitch began recording the KAATO album in Nashville at Mitch’s studio, Malloy Master Tracks along with Kurt’s longtime friend and bass player, Mika Nuutinan, and Mitch’s former bandmate and guitar virtuoso Tristan Avakian (Queen Extravaganza, Red Dawn, Malloy). The marriage of the four band members not only created dynamic, melodically charged music but also a compelling, not to be missed live show. When KAATO takes the stage all eyes and ears are held captive by the infectious music and dynamic performance.
 
The KAATO album launches with the first single, High Time, a fast-paced party song. The video gives an insight into the vintage live appeal of the band and its high energy show. While a complimentary hat tip to the original founders and influencers of rock, KAATO definitely brings its own fresh sound to the rock scene. Start to finish, "Our music is loud, it's fast, it's rude, it's rock and roll...it doesn't care. It's a mixture of Aerosmith, Boston, Styx and Zeppelin, and all the stuff that just makes you want to get up and dance.” says Lowney.
 
KAATO is scheduled to embark on a US and European tour beginning in July 2016 with tour stops including the world famous Whisky A Go Go in LA, Nashville, London, Liverpool, Athens, Madrid and Oslo, to name a few.
