MIKE PORCARO RIP - A MelodicRock Tribute

  Mike Porcaro has left us. May he rest in peace.   As the music world collectively sighs a deep sigh for the loss of another legend, there is only one thing to do.   I’m currently cranking Kingdom Of Desire – one of my favourite Toto albums ever, but fittingly the last album to feature the rhythm section of Mike and Jeff Porcaro. They are united finally once again. Every person hopes to leave this world with some kind of footprint that says we were here. The print Mike left was nothing short of astounding.

DAN REED - Transmission (Showcase)

  Dan Reed, formerly of 'Dan Reed Network', (DRN) will soon be releasing his third solo album entitled ‘Transmission’. This collection of songs was composed and recorded in Prague and takes on a more live feel and energy than his previous two studio releases ‘Signal Fire’ and ‘Coming Up for Air’. Reed has always had a passion for groups like ‘Bad Company’, ‘Pink Floyd’, and ‘Fleetwood Mac’ and ‘Transmission’ takes it’s aim at realising this type of in your face, honest rock production. Besides tackling all the vocals, Dan performed all the guitar and keyboard work, performing live in the studio beside famed drummer Robert Ikiz from Turkey and bassist Bengan Jonasson from Sweden.

CRAZY LIXX - Crazy Lixx (Review)

  Crazy Lixx nearly threw away all the good work they’d done with their first two albums with the release of #3, Riot Avenue. The rawer, more restrained direction was a big step backwards after the glorious New Religion and the impressive debut Loud Minority. Opting for a self-titled moniker, album number 4 thankfully sees the band recapture everything that fans loved about the first two records.   This is the logical follow-up to New Religion, we can just forget about Riot Avenue now! Changing the lineup slightly sees new bassist Jens Sjöholm join and the return of original drummer Joél Cirera.

TANGO DOWN Welcomes Vocalist CHAS WEST

  TANGO DOWN have announced their new vocalist after the departure of David Reece. News just in from Kivel Records:   "We said we were going to lay low for a few months and enjoy the holidays. We all greatly appreciate the response that ‘Charming Devil’ continues to receive. We took time to sit back and soak everything in over the last year. All the good, and not so good, and in the end what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (we think somebody famous said that).
