VEGA - Stereo Messiah (Pre-View)

Fresh from the musical joy that is Work Of Art, I have another album fighting for my attention. British band VEGA is back with their third album “Stereo Messiah”. Oh boy, does this album deliver folks….it delivers BIG TIME!   It looks like the band that serves up tasty melodic rock with a modern twist have bettered both previous efforts to deliver their best album to date. I’m all over this album, with track after track of powerfully delivered, anthemic, melodic bliss, all in a style that really shows that these new bands know how to keep an aging genre alive and fresh.   So right now I’m pretty much on a Work Of Art/Vega playback loop…

BOMBAY BLACK Releases 6th Album Walk Of Shame - Out Now!

  Bombay Black's 6th Studio Album WALK OF SHAME available NOW.   Bassist Ty Sims said the release of this album was "All work, all drinking, all tongue in cheek and a lot of fun- oh- and GET OFF MY LAWN!!! - damn kids".    But seriously, Sims and Lead vocalist Erik Johnson put a tremendous amount of work into the production of this album, and the result has been worth the effort. The sound is balls out across the board with strong harmonies and complex arrangements.  It also sees the addition of drummer Barry Whaley who brings his stellar chops to the musical stew which include the full metal onslaught of "Everything You Wanted", the party rock anthem "Sunshine", and the stripper pole funk of "Come Over Here". The latter has already been released as a preview track with overwhelmingly positive response and a record level of pre-sales.

WHITE LION and KIX re-issues from Rock Candy Records

  The following three new Rock Candy titles are all available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com for a discounted price including postage to anywhere in the world for the next two weeks ending on 3rd August.    WHITE LION 'FIGHT TO SURVIVE' CANDY242  THE STORY OF White Lion is a fascinating tale of triumph over adversity. Sure, you might apply that characterisation to the story of  legions of rock bands, but the birth of their debut album was a roller coaster ride of emotional highs and extreme lows, played out with a backdrop of uncertainty always in ominous view. That they eventually triumphed with this album and also the platinum selling success of future releases on Atlantic Records only goes to show that talent will eventually win the day.
