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).

CAIN'S OFFERING Offer Up New Album on Frontiers

  Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the second CAIN’S OFFERING studio album entitled “Stormcrow” on May 15th in Europe and May 19th in North America. Cain's Offering is the brainchild of Finnish guitarist/songwriter Jani Liimatainen, founding member of one of Finland's biggest musical exports, Sonata Arctica.   Drawing its musical influence from both the classic Hard Rock scene, fast-paced European Power Metal and a very modern Heavy Metal sound, CAIN’S OFFERING is, just as expected, another perfect example of today's incredible Finnish music scene.

Several massively successful U.S. artists, like Cinderella (band), Bon Jovi, Poison, Twisted Sister and Motley Crue cite STARZ as a primary influence.

ISSA - Crossfire (Review)

  Norweigan-turned-Brit, Issa returns with her fourth solo album; following up the patchy Can’t Stop, which was comprised of classic (and obscure) AOR covers. I’ve found Issa a bit hit and miss after her memorable 2010 debut. I’ve found the balance of image over style a little too much in favor of the less important image at times, but all is forgiven with Crossfire. Despite the glammed up image again front and center, this time the style is matched with substance in the form of 11 very appealing songs. This album might just be her best effort yet.

Rock Candy Records Latest - HANOI ROCKS & RIVERDOGS

  The following two new Rock Candy titles are available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com for a discounted price including postage to anywhere in the world for the next two weeks ending on April 22.   HANOI ROCKS 'TWO STEPS FROM THE MOVE' CANDY233   BACK IN THE early eighties when Hanoi Rocks moved lock stock and barrel from Finland to London the streets were on fire with possibilities. Looking like an explosion in a paint factory and sounding like a devilish mash-up of the Rolling Stones jamming with the Sweet, it's fair to say that they made a unique impression. With an anything can happen and it probably will vibe, the band's ferocious on stage performances were legendary, establishing them as the front runners of a movement that looked like it would instantaneously blast them to success.
