Fireworks Magazine 88 Out Now

The mighty Metal goddess Tarja adorns the cover of the latest star studded issue of Fireworks Magazine. She rubs shoulders in our 148 colour pages alongside the multitalented collective that is the Michael Schenker Fest who are back with a brand new album called 'Revelation'. Beloved British rockers Thunder talk about celebrating 30 years in the business but that is eclipsed by the institution that is Status Quo, who return with their 33rd album, and their first new material since the passing of Rick Parfitt.
Elsewhere we have the likes of Black Star Riders, Hammerfall, Alter Bridge, Skillet, Eclipse, Volbeat, Steve Vai and more - 34 interviews in total! It doesn't end there either, as within our features we have a guide to the studio output of beloved Aussie rocker Jimmy Barnes and a look at some of the ladies of the genre via Rob Evans' Sisters In Rock. This issue also sees the final part of the popular feature The Divine Decade, penned by Dave Reynolds, bringing things to a close with his report on the events of 1983.
As usual, the issue is bolstered by a massive reviews section, dwarfing that of any other music magazine on the market. If it's out there, chances are it's in here and we'll give you an honest view of what it's like, whether your tastes are Classic Rock, AOR, Metal, Blues, Southern, Progressive or Symphonic. Just no growling, we're not really into that.
Oh yes, it also comes with a free CD, which gives you 93 songs to try. All for a meagre £5.99. If there's better value to be found in another magazine, we'd like to know where!
