MECCA - The Demos ($15 Sale)

 
LIMITED NUMBERS LEFT
 
MECCA 'The Demos' (2CD Set)($15 Sale - Incl. Shipping Worldwide)
 
 
 
The name MECCA is synonymous with quality AOR and melodic rock. Each of the 3 albums released to date have been crafted over several years, with each song racking up a seriously impressive number of demos, alternative versions, re-writes and re-mixes before being labelled “done”.
 
So, while we wait for a new set of songs to go through that lengthy process, Joe Vana has given MelodicRock Records the green light to delve back into the many folders of Mecca music that has built up since the 2002 debut, to bring you a very cool limited edition release –
 
MECCA “The Demos”
 
But these aren’t any old demos; these are still of the highest quality and represent a rare insight into the recording process all artists go through.

Daniel Trigger is an experienced singer/songwriter from the Midlands, UK who classifies his music as ‘stadium rock’, written to sound at home in an arena, combining big hooks and powerful melodies with anthemic, wide-screen choruses.
And that is the perfect description for Daniel and this album. Seldom will you hear so many hook-driven melodic rockers in one place and while Daniel has an established fan base already, this album is set to reach a whole new fanbase and take his reputation to the next level.
 
With 3 heavy rock albums under his belt, Daniel made the decision in 2017 to return to his melodic roots. The album ‘Right Turn’, steps away from down-tuned heavy rock in favour of greater musical subtleties, infectious melodies and lyrical optimism, and provides the opportunity for Daniel to make more use of instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano.
 
Let’s take a listen, with two tracks from ‘Right Turn’ to check out right now:

DANIEL TRIGGER Joins MRR With A 'Right Turn' Aug 10

Friday, August 10, 2018
Categories: 
 
At the heart of the melodic rock scene is a large number of independent artists, who make music for the love of it, contributing some very fine music but not always getting the attention they deserve.
 
On August 10, MelodicRock Records will release two great new melodic rock albums from artists that have previously been self-released independents. These guys deserve your attention and I hope everyone will take the time to listen and perhaps pre-order either one, or both of these releases.
 
We will announce next week, with pre-orders, a special discount deal when buying both.
 
Today it is the great pleasure of MRR to announce the second of these artists – DANIEL TRIGGER.
 
MRR will release DANIEL TRIGGER’s new album ‘Right Turn’ on August 10.
 
Daniel Trigger is an experienced singer/songwriter from the Midlands, UK who classifies his music as ‘stadium rock’, written to sound at home in an arena, combining big hooks and powerful melodies with anthemic, wide-screen choruses.

07. Alive 04:38
08. There In Your Heart 04:02
09. Rock N Roll Party 04:11
10. Wheels In Motion 04:02
 
Daniel began writing rock music and playing in bands as a direct result of hearing Europe’s ‘The Final Countdown’ during a visit to a laser light show at the London Planetarium in 1989. It was a ‘road to Damascus’ moment, where Daniel immediately knew he wanted to devote his life to making music that sounded ‘like that’, and has remained influenced by the likes of Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, Queen and Def Leppard to this day.
 
As many musicians do, Daniel spent his early years writing and singing with school and local rock bands, before joining metal band ‘Full Tilt’ in 1995, with whom he recorded one album. Daniel later moved on to sing with rock/blues outfit ‘Easy’, before forming his own band ‘Trigger’ in 2003, which performed melodic rock in the style made famous by the stadium bands of the 80’s.
 
‘Trigger’ recorded 4 albums and ran for 8 successful years before reaching a natural conclusion in 2011. From here on, Daniel continued writing and recording under his own name as a solo artist, and recorded 3 albums, ‘Infinite Persistence’ (2012), the critically-acclaimed ‘Army Of One’ (2014), and ‘Time Of The Titans (2017) which received glowing reviews from the worldwide music press. All 3 of these solo albums fell into the category of ‘melodic yet heavy rock’, combining powerful down-tuned guitar riffs with soaring vocals - imagine crossing Bon Jovi with Alter Bridge, and that will give you the idea.
 
It was with the release of ‘Time Of The Titans’ in 2017 that Daniel began donating all proceeds from purchases of his music to charity, supporting worthy causes such as Marie Curie Cancer Care, Dementia UK and the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign.
 
With 3 heavy rock albums under his belt, Daniel made the decision in 2017 to return to his melodic roots. The album ‘Right Turn’, steps away from down-tuned heavy rock in favour of greater musical subtleties, infectious melodies and lyrical optimism, and provides the opportunity for Daniel to make more use of instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano.

Influenced by the rock and pop music of the 70's and 80's Jim played with a Country Rock band in the mid 80's. In the late 80's he toured with RCA recording artist Mel Hayes, playing for audiences around the country. In the 90's he formed Taxi which became one of Northwest Indiana and Chicago's most popular bands. Radio airplay for the Taxi single ‘I Won't Be Coming Home’ led to a short tour of the Southwest. Throughout the 90's Taxi opened for many national acts such as Enuff Z 'Nuff and Todd Rundgren. Taxi released two studio albums and one live (re-issues coming soon). Taxi still plays the occasional show.

Joe Cerisano is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer who has the distinction of possessing one of the most familiar voices in America. With musical influences as diverse as Elvis Presley, Little Richard, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Sam and Dave, Joe developed a singing style that absorbed this wide variety of influences, mixing them with his native West Virginia dialect created a classic and original American singer's voice.
 
Traveling to the west coast in the early 80’s Joe formed the now legendary California rock band 'Silver Condor' with guitarist Earl Slick (i.e. David Bowie and John Lennon) on Columbia Records. In 1981, Silver Condor released their debut album and had the Top 40 hit "You Could Take My Heart Away." Silver Condor released their sophomore effort "Trouble at Home" in 1983. It boasted an all-star cast including Neal Schon (Journey, Santana), Clarence Clemmons (E Street Band), Waddy Wachtel (Stevie Nicks), Kenny Aaronson (Derringer, Billy Idol) and Steve Plunket (Autograph).
 
Joe has continued to be a prolific songwriter and is set to release Joe Cerisano’s Silver Condor - “Studio Cuts, Rarities and Live across America”.

The Senior Management Bio:
In the summer of 2015 guitarist Dennis Heltorp and drummer Henrik Zetterlund formed the rock band The Senior Management. Together they have been involved in different
music project since the late 80’s. During the first half of the 90’s they collaborated in the band
Y.M.I where they reached the finals in the Swedish championship of rock music.
 
In the mid 90’s Y.M.I played at a rock festival and was warm up act for Billionaires Boys Club who
was headlining. Billionaires Boy Club was Jörg Fischer (Accept), Anders Johansson (Yngwie Malmsteen) Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsten, John Norum) and Magnus Rosén (Hammerfall).
Magnus was at the time in the beginning of his career and that later would bring him to several successful years with Hammerfall. Göran had recently left Yngwie Malmsteen
band when he replaced Marc Boals in Billionaires Boys Club. During this rock festival, it was the
first time we all met and none of us had any idea that we 20 years later would team up together as
The Senior Management.
 
Dennis Heltorp: “In order to find our sound, we did some demos with different voices like Tony Martin from Black Sabbath and Jeff Scott Soto (Talisman, Soto, Sons Of Apollo). However, all pieces fell into place after the first demo run with Göran. He finally added with his voice and amazing vocal harmonies the missing piece to complete our sound.”
 
Some listeners say that The Senior Management sound like a blend of The Eagles and Thin Lizzy.
Others have said they sound like Journey or Bon Jovi.

Joe Cerisano is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer who has the distinction of possessing one of the most familiar voices in America. With musical influences as diverse as Elvis Presley, Little Richard, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Sam and Dave, Joe developed a singing style that absorbed this wide variety of influences, mixing them with his native West Virginia dialect created a classic and original American singer's voice.
 
Traveling to the west coast in the early 80’s Joe formed the now legendary California rock band 'Silver Condor' with guitarist Earl Slick (i.e. David Bowie and John Lennon) on Columbia Records. In 1981, Silver Condor released their debut album and had the Top 40 hit "You Could Take My Heart Away." Silver Condor released their sophomore effort "Trouble at Home" in 1983. It boasted an all-star cast including Neal Schon (Journey, Santana), Clarence Clemmons (E Street Band), Waddy Wachtel (Stevie Nicks), Kenny Aaronson (Derringer, Billy Idol) and Steve Plunket (Autograph).
 
After the breakup of Silver Condor Joe headed back East and began his career as one of the most successful studio session singers in America. Singing television and radio commercials for Chrysler/Plymouth, the Army, the Navy, GE, Miller Beer, Coca-Cola and many others, he voiced classics like the Army's "be all you can be" and GE's "we bring good things to life".
 
He continued to be a sought after singer throughout the 80’s. He performed backing vocals on several albums by Michael Bolton, sang with Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson, was guest as lead vocalist on the Blue Oyster Cult track "Frankenstein" from the ‘Imaginos’ album, sang a duet with Gloria Estefan on the soundtrack Goya: A Life in Song along with Placido Domingo, as well as the feature singer on "Hands Across America".
 
In the early 1990’s Joe began writing a series of songs that reflected the most important thing in Joe's life (his family). This resulting music evolved to become the album Carbon Copy which was recorded in New York, Nashville, and Joe’s home in New Jersey. It also marked Joe’s return to the stage as a member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra during their inaugural trek in 1999 through 2004. He was a featured lead vocalist on the 1998 Christmas album, The Christmas Attic.
 
Joe has continued to be a prolific songwriter and is set to release Joe Cerisano’s Silver Condor - “Studio Cuts, Rarities and Live across America”.

MRR’s Andrew McNeice: “I’m immensely proud and excited to finally be releasing this killer record from JK and David. I’ve worked with JK since the very first MR.com compilation over 15 years back and he’s been there for me as a mastering engineer every time since. His work with me remastering some important archive releases in the last couple of years has only further emboldened my respect for him as a first rate professional and someone who can bring out the very best results in any situation. On top of that, he is a Grade A gentleman who I value as a friend and college.
Everyone I have recommended Jeff to as an engineer or producer has ended up using him and continuing that relationship. But I’ve long felt that his name is undervalued as a writer and guitarist and I think this record is his finest achievement to date and a truly stunning release – in all facets – the guitar playing, the writing and production and David Cagle is one hell of a vocalist who I think we need to work with again ASAP!”
 
Jeff Northrup: “David Cagle and I had worked together in the past and started this album back in 2014.  Unfortunately, it was shelved due to 'circumstances'. We knew we had something special even then, and the time was right to pull out this great collection of songs, dust it off and polish it up. The result is 12 of the best songs put together on any album I've been a part of!
 
Fast forward to 2017… After rewriting some of the lyrics, some arrangement changes, re-recording guitars and vocals, then bringing in the powerful rhythm section of Larry Hart - bass (Montrose, Gypsy Soul, King Kobra) and Steve Brown - drums (Montrose, Oleander-and Mick Brown's younger brother), the album has truly come to life!
Larry and Steve have been playing live together for a couple years and are TIGHT. I've played on a few albums with Larry including King Kobra, Shortino-Northrup and Gypsy Soul, which began in 1987.
 
When you hear the opening track 'The Night Is Mine', you'll know right away that you are going to Get Rocked HARD!!! David's modern approach on vocals is a breath of fresh air and I pull no punches on guitar!! With some heavy, powerful rock songs, to more main stream rockers and a couple killer ballads, it's all here!!!
Although a predominately guitar driven album, Eric Ragno does a masterful job playing keyboards on 6 songs.
 
The title track, 'That's Gonna Leave A Mark' was written by myself several years back, but sounds as fresh and powerful as if written today. Some of the lyrics are based on true life experiences about love, hate and a relationship gone bad, which is reflected in the artwork that was done by the great Nello Dell'Omo. 'The Siren' cuts out your heart and leaves you still alive, clutching your chest. Been there, done that!!! I truly am excited for everyone to here this album!! Cheers!" ~ JK Northrup
 

 

 
Produced, Recorded, mixed and mastered by JK Northrup at Alien Productions Music Studio

Swedish rockers Captain Black Beard have signed with Melodic Rock Records for the release of their new studio album ‘Struck By Lightning’, coming worldwide April 25.
 
The first single and video from the album “All The Pain”, is out now, with the new video 'Dead End Street' making it's debut now:

The new album sees a switch in musical direction for the band, unleashing a wave of powerful new anthemic, pure melodic rock songs.
 
“It’s an honor to work with such enthusiastic champions of our genre.” says bassist Robert Majd.
 

 
In the summer of 2017 Captain Black Beard entered the studio to write a new chapter in the bands history. Robert Majd and Christian Ek along with new lead singer Liv Hansson as well as producer Jona Tee (keyboardist in H.E.A.T) pretty much reinvented the band’s sound.
 
The album that was recorded is called ‘Struck By Lightning’ and features a fresh dose of high energy melodic rock. From the instant catchiness of the opening track “All The Pain” to the heavy closing of “Straight Out Of Hell”, the band combines their AOR influences with their hard rock roots.
 
“This is a tremendous album and I’m really excited for the guys,” states MRR owner Andrew McNeice. “They’ve created a great new sound that brings together everything I love about music – killer songs, big production and hooks and harmonies everywhere. This album is going to put the guys on the map.”
 
Captain Black Beard was formed in 2009. Their self-titled debut album was named one of the "Albums Of The Year" by legendary journalist Geoff Barton of Classic Rock. The follow-up "Before Plastic" featured guest appearances by Bruce Kulick (KISS, Grand Funk Railroad) and Mats Karlsson (220 Volt). In 2016 the band released "It's a Mouthful" and toured with Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Deep Purple), Robin Beck, House Of Lords and performed at the festival Hard Rock Hell AOR for the second time in their career.
 
A release party will be held in Stockholm, Sweden on the 9th of May. Check out the bands website or facebook-page for all the latest news: www.facebook.com/CaptainBlackBeardBand / www.CaptainBlackBeard.net
 
“Struck By Lightning” will be released via Melodic Rock Records on April 25.

Joining Jason in Star Chase are:
Steve Martret - lead guitars/vocals and producer (Safire)
Gilbert Annese - drums (Square One,Someone Elses Life)
Aaron Suter - keyboards/vocals (Safire)
Anthony Wong - bass/vocals (Someone Elses Life)
 
After the 15th anniversary of the original Safire EP, Steve and Jase began writing together initially for fun, with no other plan other than to write as many songs as they could.
This eventually led to having over 20 songs written in a few months.
 
After putting the band together it was clear there was a chemistry so the next step was to record an album with no real expectation. The resulting, The New Day debut was a collection of 11 rocking tunes for fans of “two guitar & keyboard“ rock with huge harmonies.
 
This band has their own unique sound. It continues on into this, their second studio album ‘Afterlife‘.
 
’Afterlife‘ is an album that will continue to please fans of the debut and The Radio Sun, and fans of classic feel good melodic rock, Australian style AOR and songs with big hooks and even bigger harmonies.
