"We've always wanted to record a live album that captures the rawness of the band and this is it! We couldn't be more thrilled then to have captured this at the infamous Whisky, where it all began for us. After 30 years, we're still proud to do what we do and hopefully it shows. This is an intimate performance, the way it should be."
 
The DVD of Live At The Whisky also contains the music video for “No More Hell To Pay” and “Sympathy” from their latest album No More Hell To Pay. It also features an interview segment the band recorded for Nashville All Access.  A trailer for the DVD can be seen at http://youtu.be/uCB8lvXw5pk.

Comprised of the original line-up, Stryper has been rocking since 1984, and is responsible for such '80s metal classic albums as Soldiers Under Command, To Hell With The Devil and In God We Trust. Stryper is also the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits “Free” and “Honestly.” After a sabbatical for much of the 1990's, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated band has sold upwards of 10 million records worldwide.

CHICAGO - Now (Review)

information persons: 
section name: 
BOTTOM LINE
content: 
 
The album walks a thin line between uptempo Westcoast pop and sultry jazz-infused ballads, all delivered with the sickly sweet harmony vocals expected from a band with 6 or 7 vocalists at work.
 
Good for fans of the band's earlier incarntions, beyond fluffy for those looking for the more recently used style.
section name: 
SCORE
content: 

 

83%
Produced By: 
Chcago
Release Date: 
2014
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Westcoast/Pop
Score: 
83
Label: 
Frontiers Records
Artist: 
Chicago is the second iconic group to have a new release out in the same month of the same year (Yes being the other) from the same label. Much like the Yes album, appeal will squarely lay with longtime established fans over curious newcomers or part-time fans.
 
I count myself as a part-timer when it comes to Chicago. I loved the band’s edgier moments like the last studio album in 2006 (XXX) and the fabulous long kept under wraps Stone Of Sisyphus album, plus their more commercial moments such as the 80s friendly Chicago 16 through 21 albums. Some great AOR material on offer there.
 
When the band revert to their core 70s style, bring out the jazzy Westcoast sound and push their legendary brass section into a more prominent role, I find my finger reaching for the skip button.
Chicago 36, or “Now” as it is dually titled, offers some moments of melodic rock brilliance and some snappy arrangements and impeccable playing without question.
It’s also beautifully produced by the band. But at times it speeds down Pink & Fluffy Boulevard and heads Southbound on the Middle Of The Road Freeway.
 
So be warned those seeking the more guitar driven sound of XXX – this ain’t it!
 
That said, if you like classic Chicago, you aren’t going to get a more authentic experience than “Now”. The jazzy pop material is as catchy as it is breezy and the sound is straight out of 1978.

WORK OF ART Third Album Framework to be Released in September on Frontiers

Artist: 
WORK OF ART’s third album is finally ready!
« Framework » to be released in September on Frontiers
 
Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of the long awaited third album from Swedish melodic rockers WORK OF ART entitled “Framework” on September 19th in Europe and September 22nd in North America.
 
“Framework” comes 3 years after the release of “In Progress”, an album that solidified WORK OF ART’s reputation as one of the most talented newcomers in the Melodic Rock genre. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Toto, Giant and Journey, WORK OF ART literally came from nowhere when in 2008 their debut album “Artwork” hit the streets and catapulted them into the stardom of the genre!
 
“After our last record was released, we started to play live for the first time” says main composer and guitar player Robert Säll. ”It really brought us together in a whole new way and kind of revitalized the band. From there, the decision to make a new album was more or less a no brainer. So really, the inspiration for this new album came from playing live and from meeting all the wonderful fans!”
 
The new album was written and recorded in a time frame of about one year and a half and is the logical next step after “In Progress”. “Framework” musically encompasses all that WORK OF ART managed to create until now, offering another bunch of unforgettable songs with soaring melodies (courtesy of the golden throat of singer Lars Säfsund) and amazing instrumental prowess (offered by Robert Säll and drummer Herman Furin). Overall this is certainly WORK OF ART’s most up-tempo and straight ahead album so far, but – as it should be – some unbelievable softer moments are there as well!
 
“I think it safe to say that, style wise, this album continues in the footsteps of our previous two albums. We tried to stretch our sound a little though, some heavier songs and some softer songs” continues Robert.
 
By popular demand WORK OF ART debuted live in Madrid, Spain in January 2012. When asked if WORK OF ART will be following up the new release with a proper tour, Robert Säll answers: “We will certainly try to gig as much as possible. We're already in discussion with several different promoters and then of course, we'll be playing at Melodicrock Fest in Chicago in October!”
 
A trailer of the album can be enjoyed via this link: http://youtu.be/uN0z6XuLGNA
 
Framework” includes the following tracks: Time To Let Go ; How Will I Know?; Can’t Let Go ; How Do You Sleep At Night?; Over The Line ; The Machine ; Hold On To Love ; Natalie;  The Turning Point ; My Waking Dream.

MOONLAND : THE RETURN OF VANILLA NINJA’S LENNA KUURMAA TO THE INTERNATIONAL ROCK SCENE

Artist: 
MOONLAND: the return of Vanilla Ninja’s Lenna Kuurmaa to the International Rock scene!
 
Debut album out in September on Frontiers
 
 
                Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of MOONLAND self titled debut album on September 19th in Europe and September 23rd in North America.
 
                This anticipated album finally brings back to the spotlight on the international Rock music markets Estonian singer, actress and TV personality Lenna Kuurmaa. Lenna has been the front-woman of the Pop-Rock sensation VANILLA NINJA, an all-female outfit, which debuted in 2002 with their self-titled album and went on to release internationally another 3 very successful studio albums (which won Gold and Platinum Records awards in Germany and Gold in Austria and Switzerland). In 2005 VANILLA NINJA also won the selection to represent Switzerland in the Eurovision Song Festival with the song "Cool Vibes", ending at the 8th place.
 
                The group's latest album, “Love is War”, was released in May 2006 and brought VANILLA NINJA to appear successfully at the Viña del Mar Festival in Chile. The latest release from the band was a single “Crashing Through the Doors”, a great rock song penned specifically for VANILLA NINJA by Roxette’s Per Gessle.
 
                VANILLA NINJA however went into hiatus since then and the members started to get involved in different projects. Lenna Kuurmaa appeared as an actress and TV presenter in Estonia and started a musical solo project under her own name, until she was approached by Frontiers Records with a concept to be return with a new international release with songs tailored for her singing style, with musical influences ranging from classic Heart and Europe with a touch of Roxette.
 
                With Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, LRS, Issa) taking care of the production and a concert appearance in front of the Frontiers Rock Festival crowd in Milano in May, MOONLAND (a name coming from the translation of finnish words  Kuu / Moon and Maa / Land which also make up Lenna’s name)  is a new exciting musical venture from Lenna Kuurmaa, which is ready again to show the World her brilliant voice and talents.
 
                “I am excited to see how this new international project will turn out and where will it lead me to” says Lenna. “Musically Moonland is more adult oriented compared to Vanilla Ninja but both have strong melodic rock melodies! It will be interesting to see which songs will reach the audience more than the others.”
 
                Enjoy the album presentation via Youtube following the link below: http://youtu.be/L-7gzfOTicw
 
                “Moonland” includes the following tracklisting: Heaven Is To Be Close To You; Open Your Heart; Crime Of Love; Poison Angel; When Love Is Gone; Out Of Reach; Live And Let Go; Cold As Ice; Over Me; Heart Made Of Steel; Look At Us Now; Another Day In Paradise.

STATE OF SALAZAR GOING "ALL THE WAY" WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR DEBUT ALBUM OUT ON FRONTIERS IN AUGUST

 
STATE OF SALAZAR GOING "ALL THE WAY" WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR DEBUT ALBUM OUT ON FRONTIERS IN AUGUST
 
Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of Swedish melodic rockers STATE OF SALAZAR debut album entitled “All the Way” on August 22nd in Europe and August 26th in North America.
 
STATE OF SALAZAR came to the attention of Frontiers A&R dept after the release of their debut EP ”Lost my Way” in the summer of 2012. Reviews spread fast in magazines and blogs and created a flood of praise from all over the world during a very short period: “This is something that can grow really big.” “...State Of Salazar will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the genre.” “…this EP is an extremely polished piece of art...” “The performances and the production are superb…”
 
With bands such as Toto, Queen, Journey, Survivor and especially Bill Conti and Vince DiCola (Rocky IV’s "Training Montage" writer and performer) in their influences list, STATE OF SALAZAR have indeed a lot to prove. They handle all this pressure with their heads held high since it is a quintet with great musicians! All members – Marcus Nygren, vocals, Johan Thuresson, guitars, Johannes Hansson, bass, Kristian Brun, drums and Stefan Mårtenson, keyboards – have extensive live and studio experience. In other words, these guys know what they are doing and they already showed it to the unsuspecting public of the first Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan where they took the audience by surprise with their “feel good” Melodic Rock music.
 
“I feel that I’ve developed my songwriting a lot since the songs for the EP” says singer Marcus Nygren. “However everyone of us put his own personality on the musical performances on the album and every single detail has been worked with and we sound like a band who took it All The Way!”.
 
“More than a year of hard work from everyone involved, made it possible for us to develop our sound and actually find out who we are, musically as a group” adds bassist Johannes Hansson. “From epic synths, angelic choirs and guitar soundscapes to unison low E-string riffs we've allowed ourselves to indulge what we want the music to say without having to adapt. Believe me when I say that big things are coming in 2014”, concludes guitarist Johan Thuresson.
 
STATE OF SALAZAR is therefore ready to show the world that they are definitely not a retro band, or a walk down memory lane. They write songs and play music that strives forward and not backwards. Their songwriting, arranging and instrumental performance show that this is a band that wants to develop and give its contribution to the Melodic Rock genre.
 
Get a taste of things to come watching the band’s EPK via this link:  http://youtu.be/JHcQ8kT1MVU
 
All the Way” will include the following tracks:
I Believe In You; Field of Dreams; All the Way; Love of My Life; Eat Your Heart Out; Time to Say Goodbye; Marie; Let Me Love; Catastrophe; Always; Adrian; End of Time.

X-DRIVE TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM GET YOUR ROCK ON

Artist: 

IMPRESSIVE L.A. NEWCOMERS X-DRIVE TO RELEASE

DEBUT ALBUM "GET YOUR ROCK ON"

ON FRONTIERS IN AUGUST

 

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of X-DRIVE's debut album entitled “Get Your Rock On” on August 22nd in Europe and August 26th in North America.

X-DRIVE is a new band centered around guitar player Jeremy Brunner, an Oregon transplant, who – on the heels of his songwriting skills managed to put together an impressive debut with an affinity for catchy riffs, insightful lyrics and huge choruses.

Some of the best in Los Angeles have joined the ranks of X-DRIVE, including bassist James Lomenzo (White Lion, Megadeth, Black Label Society), singer Keith St. John (Burning Rain, Lynch Mob, Montrose) and to round out the project hard-hitting drummer Fred Fischer from Midline. Then legendary producer Andy Johns, the former Led Zeppelin engineer, was able to finish the X-DRIVE tracks just before his tragic death in 2013.

“It was such a pleasure to contribute to Jeremy's effort! He has written and crafted an incredible homage to the style of 80's rock, a style that I cut my teeth on back in the day,” Lomenzo said. “His love for the era and style really comes through in a surprisingly satisfying way.”

“Writing with Brunner was an absolute pleasure,” St. John said. “On the whole, the vehicle for his musical canvasses has been a breath of fresh air in directness and simplicity. I found myself patently inspired to fashion my parts for this collection of songs that was Jeremy’s own refreshing take on the ‘80s."

“Get Your Rock On” was mixed by Wyn Davis (Black Sabbath, Dio, Whitesnake, Dokken), and it took more than a year in the studio to make things just the way Brunner wanted, as the guitarist is a bit of a mastermind perfectionist. But it was definitely worth the wait! The X-DRIVE debut positively rocks from beginning to end.

Check out the official EPK here: http://youtu.be/LGavI-erOeI

“Get Your Rock On” will include the following tracklisting: Love’s A Bitch; Get Your Rock On; Steppin’ On The Rock; Baby Bye Bye; California; Lay Me Down; Turn The Noize Down; Beyond the Angels; Rattlesnake Eyes; Just Can’t Stay; Change of Heart; Love Breaks the Fool.

TESLA - Simplicity (Showcase)

Artist: 
Simplicity
Produced By: 
Tom Zutaut
Running Time: 
65
Release Date: 
June 6
Released: 
World
Genre: 
Melodic Hard Rock

“Simplicity” is TESLA’s seventh all original studio album which follows a 6-years creative break from the release of the previous album “Forever More”.

The band has certainly not been lazy during this period, as they have made several successful laps around the world and put out several new products anyway. But Tesla are now back to present a brand new album of all original material called “Simplicity”.
The first new song, "Taste My Pain", was released last summer digitally via iTunes and Amazon. The track was recorded during a two-day (June 5-6, 2013) session at J Street Recorders in Sacramento. The new song is, according to the band, "A heavier song with a hard-driving beat and TESLA trademark blazing guitars."

After a string of shows in the USA in 2013, the band went back into the studio in early 2014 and came out with a new album, which goes straight back to the TESLA roots. The band worked and produced it as they did with “Into the Now”, their successful come-back album from 2004. Helped by the legendary Tom Zutaut who was the man behind the best TESLA albums, this new album rocks from start to finish, showing a variety of emotions where each song has its own twist--not sounding like another.
The opening track is called “MP3” and starts off with an opus intro that orchestrates into a heavy slow groove with lyrics about technology and how we miss simplicity, vinyl albums, family values... and has a heavy ass riff! This sets the pace for a great Rock album which is set to please all fans of classic TESLA sound!

Nearly 30 years after their debut album, hard rockers Tesla are still bringing the goods to their fans! With an energy that belies their veteran status, Tesla is well-oiled and ready to deliver another electric round of performances on the road. Don’t miss them!

TESLA:

Jeff Keith: Lead Vocals
Frank Hannon: Guitars, Vocals, Piano, Bass
Brian Wheat: Bass, Vocals, Piano
Troy Luccketta: Drums and Percussion
Dave Rude: Guitars, Vocals, Bass

Produced by: Tom Zutaut and TESLA
Mixed by: Michael Wagener
