  1. The Finnish hottie is about to release her new album 'Grounded' in Japan (Dec 9th). Pretty cool video for the new single! jessicawolffonline.com FB
  2. Press release: This is the official video clip for the track "Black Water" from the band LIONCAGE. The song is taken from the upcoming Album "Turn Back Time" which will be released on September 21st, 2018! The lions are very proud and grateful to have made it this far. The new album reflects exactly what the band loves and what Lioncage stands for, also in 2018: a diverse album with great tunes, many hooks, cool grooves and powerful guitars. If you think that this album celebrates rock music more than anything else presented by Lioncage so far – you are right. The lions roar louder and the guitar sounds are thicker. Since 2017 the band has performed live on stage in great gigs together with FM, Dan Reed Network, Tyketto, Three Wishes and others. This has had a sustainable influence on sound and song-writing, it has added new sides to the music and has given it more power without losing any melodiousness. Once more the band was pleased to welcome outstanding guests to their cage who supported them passionately and professionally, to name only a few among many others: Neil Murray (b), a.o. Whitesnake, Black Sabbath), Olaf Senkbeil (v, Dreamtide) and Joe Castellini (g) For the first time some friends of the lions contributed to the song-writing. “Comfort Me” was written together with Joe Castellini and “Turn Back Time” with Olaf Senkbeil. Lioncage initially started as a trio but has meanwhile grown into a permanent group of five lions, every now and then enhanced by a guest. Lioncage: Thorsten Bertermann (v), Torsten Landsberger (d), Lars, König (g), Arvid Lucas (b), Bülent Sezen (d) Guests: Anya Mahnken (Beyond The Black, Unheilig u.a.) - vocals on track 9; Olaf Senkbeil (Dreamtide) – vocals on track 5; Neil Murray (Whitesnake, Black Sabbath etc) – bass on track 1; Joe Castellini – guitar on track 3 www.lioncage.de 1.

    Ten - Illuminati

    I'm digging the new song. From Frontiers: Hot on the heels of last year’s “Gothica”, UK hard rock stalwarts are returning with a new album, “Illuminati” in 2018! The album promises to be one of the hallmarks of their 22+ years career, where fans will easily spot all the trademark textures and flavours they have come to expect from TEN, with a consistent and solid spark of creativity throughout. “Illuminati” continues to build upon the rich legacy that the great British rockers have established in their 20+ year career. “Illuminati” is said to be an elite, secret organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of the global society. A coalition that unites influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole. The album “Illuminati” brings the band’s atmospheres and sounds and weaves them into a reel of mysteries, esoteric tales, and elaborate spells, evoking embers that spark the imagination courtesy of the classic songwriting of vocalist Gary Hughes. Following the success of the recent string of albums, from “Albion” to “Gothica”, Hughes is joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott and John Halliwell along with bass player Steve McKenna, keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch, and drummer Max Yates. On their fourth outing as a collective unit, the musicians in TEN have raised the bar even higher than they had previously. The album is full of stunning guitar work over a rich keyboard, bass, and drum tapestry with Hughes’ rich vocals once again bringing the nuances of the intricate lyrics to life. “Illuminatii” was produced by Gary Hughes and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. TEN’s longstanding professional association with Dennis has been ongoing since he mixed their 2011 album, “Stormwarning” and has always guaranteed albums with stunning sound and production.

  13. Press release from MelodicRock Records: MelodicRock Records is proud to announce another fantastic “from the vaults” archive project. “Voices From The Past” is a very special double CD voyage into the heyday of the Los Angeles 80s rock scene, with your hosts Jimmy Waldo & Steven Rosen. Jimmy Waldo and Steven Rosen were a prolific writing duo at the height of hard rock’s popularity and were two of the go-to-guys for songs. But it didn’t stop there. This writing partnership lasted more than 30 years. And featured on these songs are the cream of the city’s musicians and singers – Jeff Scott Soto, Steve Plunkett, Billy Trudell, Keith Howland, Tim Pierce, Sherwood Ball, Tommy Thayer, Jamie St James, Marc Ferrari, Bob Kulick and more! It is a story best told by Steven Rosen, who has penned a detailed essay for the liner notes. Here he summarizes: Steven writes: “This songwriting partnership endured and survived the pummeling and pulverizing hammer of the music business, one that relentlessly and thoughtlessly banged you on the head with rejections and the closing of doors. Reaching out hundreds and hundreds of times to publishers, managers, music supervisors and anyone else who might listen to our music, we were summarily dismissed out of hand. We’d sit for hours writing, recording, bashing our brains out and always coming away with something cool. A handful of the songs here were things I wrote with other people and which Jimmy engineered. Jimmy had by the time we met, already played keyboards in New England and Alcatrazz and would go on to become a member in Blackthorne, Murder’s Row, Quiet Riot and ultimately Graham Bonnet’s band. As time passed, we began writing with more specific artists and projects in mind. “Naked” was written as a possible song for Heart; “Ricochet” and “When A Heart Beats Alone” were written for an L.A. glam rock band Jimmy was producing called Lace; “City Of Angels” was written for the Japanese NHK network; and “Outlaws” was written for an indie film of the same name and so on. Because we were writing for certain artists, we both knew we needed to pull in guitar players and singers who could convey a specific vibe. We were able to work with mad gifted players like Keith Howland (Chicago), Tim Pierce (Rick Springfield, Goo Goo Dolls), Harry Cody (Shotgun Messiah), Tony Palacios (Guardian) and Lance Morrison (Don Henley, Rick Springfield). And the singers? Oh, my god. Mona Moore brought drama and passion to these songs like no other vocalist I’d ever heard. Graham Bonnet sang his heart out on “Hearts Under Fire” and “Double Cross My Heart” and Billy Trudell, working in Warpipes at the time, brought soaring and melodic thunder to “When It Was A Game,” “Runaway Fire” and “(Ain’t No) Honor Among Thieves.” The songs on ‘Voices From the Past’ have remained dormant for years, residing in boxes, hidden in dusty corners. Giles Avery, Graham Bonnet’s manager and a music historian with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things rock bordering on ultra-nerd, discovered these DATs, ADATs, reel-to-reels, hard drives and even cassettes deep within the bowels of Waldo’s garage. He started listening and was enthralled with what he heard. Giles rescued, resuscitated and resurrected these songs and for that Jimmy and I are eternally grateful.” Complete details of “Voices From The Past” will be announced shortly – including the full track list and player/singer credits. As per usual, JK Northrup has done his complete remastering service on the tracks and Nello Dell’Omo has put together some classy artwork to match. The double CD will be released via MRR on September 28.
  14. Press release: Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce a new band that just joined the label roster: THE DEFIANTS! Behind this new band is a trio of fabulous musicians all with ties to Danger Danger. On vocals and guitar, is none other than Mr. Paul Laine! Best known for being the D2 singer for 12 years, Paul is now coming back to work with his former bandmates Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello, who are the other two pillars of The DEFIANTS. “Very, very excited about this new project, and to be working again with my ol’ pal Paul Laine, and of course, Rob Marcello!” says Bruno Ravel, who will also produce the debut album. “The writing process has been a lot of fun. We all trust and respect each other’s instincts so there’s little second guessing and that takes a lot of the usual stress out of the equation, so for me, this has been a blast so far. We will be entering the studio in the next few weeks to start recording, with completion set for the end of the year. So…what should you expect,? Well, expect some straight ahead “in your face” melodic hard rock, that’s what!” Paul Laine says: “I’m very happy to once again, create something special with Bruno and Rob. Although it’s a brand new release, I feel It's a great opportunity to say thank you and do something for the fans who have followed us through the years. Bruno and Rob are immense talents. I feel honored to be a part of this and have my voice on this album.” Rob Marcello concludes “Beyond psyched to work with my best friend Bruno and Paul on this project! It’s going to be a great one! Can’t wait for you to hear it!" Check out The DEFIANTS and “Like” their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Defiants/1113095098705750 The band will be documenting the recording process and uploading studio clips and song samples on their FB page as the album takes shape. Expect the album to hit the stores in late Spring / early Summer 2016. Edit: Adding these April 4th, 2016 (to help newcomers):
