  1. From bravewords.com: Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of Kissin' Dynamite, one of Germany's most promising rock bands. Sony Music label Columbia will handle affairs and releases of the group in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. First on the agenda is the release of Ecstasy, Kissin' Dynamite's new studio album, on July 6th. It is the follow-up to Generation Goodbye (2016), which reached #14 in the official German album charts. Produced by Kissin' Dynamite singer Hannes Braun, Ecstasy harks back to the quintet's unpolished, energy-laden early days, while at the same time marking a turning point in their eleven-year history. In autumn, the group will embark on their first concert tour as special guest since changing labels; from October 26th on Kissin' Dynamite will accompany Powerwolf, who are currently breaking all success records, for 16 joint gigs throughout Europe. www.facebook.com/Kissindynamiterocks 1.

  2. Starting over at the age of 57. Watch the documentary 'Queen of Scream' down below. From AOR Heaven: She is one of the finest Canadian Rock singers, she fronted for 36 years celebrated melodic rockers Headpins recording 3 albums, and she did backing vocals of countless '80s records. In August 2016 Darby performed the last gig with Headpins and from this date she's now under her own monicker. The "Flying Solo" stuff is a compilation of songs recorded by Darby Mills during the '80s / early '90s, released under the 'Darby Mills And The Unsung Heroes' moniker, long time out of print. All the material has been digitally remastered for the first time, and it sounds million bucks. Easily among the best female fronted AOR ever recorded, all the songs on this CD are fantastic and simply utterly essential for really every AOR lover ! Get it from her website (CA$ 25.00 incl. shipping): http://www.darbymills.com/store

    Ted Poley - Modern Art

    From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Ted Poley and Frontiers are pleased to announce that they have partnered up for the release of another solo album from the singer. Ted is currently hard at work in Sweden on this still untitled effort. This time around, the Danger Danger singer has partnered up with some incredibly talented Swedish musicians, namely Mats Ericsson, Micke Jansson, Daniel Johansson, and Robin Ericsson (on additional vocals). "You might know some of those guys other musical work as the band degreed,” says Ted “I am also getting some vocal layering with the help of my good friend, the Italian Stallion of Vocals, Alessandro Delvecchio. The album is being co-Produced by Mats Ericsson and myself in Kopperberg, Sweden.” Ted continues, "[a]fter almost 40 years of recording and releasing music, I wanted to stretch out a little bit musically and I am proud to say that I have come up with a MAGICAL combination of amazing musicians and songs! The songs are awesome, and the musicianship will BLOW YOU AWAY. Every one of the players are MASTERS of their instruments and you might hear just a hint of modern prog interlaced with my usual catchy choruses this time around! This is going to be my favorite solo album ever and an album that I felt I HAD to make. And I am so happy with the results so far!” More news as it becomes available!

    Amorphis - Queen of Time

    No one showed any interest when I posted the video for 'The Bee' back in May. However this is an excellent release and a little bit of death/harsh vocals won't hurt you. If you don't mind death/harsh vocals then Dan you should check out Wintersun (I made a topic not so long ago). I think they're even better than Amorphis.
  10. Press release: Australian melodic rock band The Radio Sun will release their new album titled 'Beautiful Strange' on August 24th via Pride & Joy Music Germany and Anderstein Music Japan, with pre order details to be announced shortly. This will be the fifth full length album released by the band, their fifth album in five years. Produced by the band, the album was mixed by Paul Laine (solo, Dark Horse, The Defiants) and mastered by Bruno Ravel (Danger Danger, The Defiants). The Radio Sun recently returned from shows at Melodic Rock Fest in the United States and Sweden Rock Fest to glowing reviews. The Radio Sun has already been confirmed for next year's HRH AOR Fest in the U.K with shows in Japan t.b.a. Vocalist Jase Old & guitarist Stevie Janevski have written their strongest album to date with a focus on catchy songs, layered vocal harmonies with a guitar edge. The band is rounded out by Anthony Wong on bass & Gilbert Annese on drums. Look out for the first single 'Hold On Tight' which will be released next month.
  11. Another great one from the amazing Kebu.

    Two Of A Kind - Rise

    Out now. From Frontiers: NEW RELEASE ALERT: Two Of A Kind's sophomore album, RISE is out now! Buy or stream it here: http://radi.al/TwoofaKindRise Two Of A Kind is a melodic rock band from Holland, whose self-titled debut album was released by Frontiers in 2007. Fred Hendrix, better known as main songwriter and singer for the Melodic Rock masters TERRA NOVA, heads up the band. Back at the turn of the century, Fred had become more and more interested in production and songwriting, so he started looking for new and fresh talent to develop. Following several suggestions from Frontiers Records’ President and A&R Director, Serafino Perugino, Fred hooked up with not one but two female singers, Esther Brouns and Anita Craenmehr. After a few writing sessions, Fred submitted the plan for a new band with a great melodic rock edge in the style of Boston meets Heart style to Frontiers, who liked the material and signed the band in late 2005. Recording of the self-titled debut album was completed during the Summer ‘06 with Fred’s TERRA NOVA bandmates Gesuino Derosas (guitar), Hans in't Zandt (drums), and Fred's brother Ron Hendrix (keyboards) joining the proceedings. “TWO OF A KIND” was met with a warm reception from fans and critics alike and now the whole gang is back together for another album! Long overdue follow-up, RISE is sure to please melodic rock fans around the globe with the performances of all members even more electric than on the debut.

  16. From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Enuff Z'Nuff To Release DIAMOND BOY August 10th via Frontiers Music Srl! New track, "Metalheart" Out Now! On The "SiriusXM Hair Nation Tour" In September! Enuff Z'nuff are the living, breathing example of what a rock 'n roll group should be. Now centered around bass player and vocalist Chip Z'nuff, Enuff Z'nuff are still alive and kicking with a legion of loyal fans, who can't get enough of the band's power pop melded with hard rock stylings. They have proven this once again with the release of their upcoming album "Diamond Boy" which is set for an August 10th release via Frontiers Music Srl. Today, the first single from the album entitled "Metalheart" has been released. It is available on all streaming services as well as an instant download with digital pre-orders. "This song is about bullying, mentally-abusive relationships. The song provides the answer on how to overcome adversity and move forward from a bad situation," says Z'nuff. Pre-order the album & stream the single here: http://radi.al/DiamondBoy This record is the first Enuff Z'nuff release where Chip handles all of the vocal duties, which was quite a task, but one he was certainly up for: "(Singing on the entire album was) very challenging. I'm taking the place of my brother who I consider one of the greatest singers of our generation. The songs on this record are solid as a boulder," says Chip. He describes the album as "It's a fresh new chapter that should have been written a long time ago. Picture David Bowie & The Beatles fighting andCheap Trick comes in to break it up." In addition to Chip Z'nuff, the band features longtime guitarist Tory Stoffregen, ex-Ultravox singer/guitarist Tony Fennell, and Chicago native Daniel Benjamin Hill on drums. Enuff Z'nuff continues to tour and record relentlessly and this new record shows once again what a truly gifted hard / power pop act they are. With no shortage of hooks and awesome songs, "Diamond Boy" is another gem in Enuff Z'Nuff's crown! Track Listing: 1. Transcendence 2. Diamond Boy 3. Where Did You Go 4. We're All The Same 5.

  17. BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is proud to announce the formation of a brand new band featuring legends of the hard rock/heavy metal scene, Dream Child! Check out the amazing group’s lineup: Craig Goldy: Guitars (ex-Dio, Giuffria) Wayne Findlay: Guitars and Keyboards (ex- MSG) Simon Wright: Drums (ex-AC/DC, Dio, Operation: Mindcrime) Rudy Sarzo: Bass (ex-Quiet Riot, Ozzy, Whitesnake, Dio) Diego Valdez: Vocals (Helker) Craig Goldy says, "[t]he band Dream Child was conceived during a brainstorming session with Serafino (President of Frontiers) and I one day while discussing other matters. I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, Deep Purple and Rainbow's “Rising" album, among others in that style and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: "They don't make music like that anymore!" Even though I said that in passing, Serafino asked me a question that would forever shape my future. He simply asked, "Well, can you?" and I said.....”YES!!!" During the very first public memorial for our most beloved Ronnie James Dio, I had mentioned that whenever I do start writing original material again that I would utilize everything that I had learned from working side by side with the Master for so many years in such a way that I would hope to make him proud....and here it is! The name is inspired by one of his lyrics on the "Dream Evil" album and the nickname he gave me at the time, Dream Child! We are so very fortunate to have bassist Rudy Sarzo as a featured guest, Simon Wright on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitars and keyboards, and a surprise vocal discovery from Argentina, Diego Valdez, whose voice will send shivers up your spine!! This album will bring back memories of the days most people have thought were long gone and never to return, yet it is also new and fresh enough to be unique with some unexpected twists and turns!! No more "same old, same old" here, no fillers. Every song is an oasis in the desert and a rare gem in the coal mines of life in this new world that thinks the past greatness of rock would remain in the past. We've brought it back to life once again!! I am very proud of this album and all who have made this become a reality. There are some big names who've lent a hand in the writing and I am amazed at the new and aggressive sound that producer Alessandro Del Vecchio has brought to these songs!!! I hope you all agree...." More details about the album release to be revealed later...stay tuned! For More Info Visit: https://www.facebook.com/DreamChildRock/
  18. I love this version of the Star Pilots' song. Becker sang on the original version too. Very 80's sounding. I diggit!

    Tempt - s/t

    Debut album out May 27th. Album liner notes from Derek Oliver (Rock Candy Records): “THOSE OF YOU who follow the world of Rock Candy would have noticed that we rarely issue material from new artists. Of course, like every label, we do get many hopefuls brandishing new music but, sad to say, the content is often not quite right for us. That we are pleased to report is not the case with New York based outfit Tempt. You may have seen them mentioned on various websites and in magazines over the last year – mainly praising a highly regarded self financed EP and a smattering of live shows. The EP showcased a young, but thoroughly contemporary, band playing a style of music that evoked memories of the great melodic hard rock bands of the past. It was a warming experience as the delivery, arrangements and attack suggested an allegiance to acts like Foofighters, Audioslave and Alterbridge, yet the musicianship and spirit bring to mind classic Van Halen, Aerosmith and Def Leppard. The band has gone on to craft a truly spellbinding debut album; one that confronts the listener with a blast of the present but suggests a comforting whiff of the past. Crucially, all the elements are in place, from great vocals (courtesy of Zach Allen), incredible guitar playing (by Harrison Marcello ) and brilliantly crafted songs with enough twists and turns to not only satisfy the musically inclined but also to appeal to folk who just wanna rock" Tempt: Zach Allen: Lead Vocals Harrison Marcello: Guitars Nicholas Burrows: Drums Max McDonald: Bass www.temptband.com FB Tracks: 1.
