New CLIF MAGNESS Solo Album Due Early 2018

  In the early '90s, melodic rock had more or less left the mainstream and become an underground affair championed by a group of small indie labels in Europe. But, in 1994 one spectacular release appeared on the scene from a singer/songwriter named Clif Magness, entitled 'Solo' that managed to collect truly rave reviews from all over the world (yes, even in a time when melodic rock was considered dead and gone).

DEVILFIRE - Dark Manouevers (Showcase)

  Devilfire frontman Alex Cooper talks about the debut album:   The album has been pretty much a four year process for me…   I’ve written it three times… Re-tracked it four times   It’s been a massive evolution to find Devilfire and what I wanted it to be.   The band started out under the name Devilstar which became an issue when a merchandise company in Las Vegas already had copyright on the name, and even though the two were different in wording it came under the confusingly similar clause in trademark law. So we switched to the name Devilfire. A name which actually I now prefer.
