From Europe (FB):

FRIENDS!

We have just finished the recording for our new album at the legendary Abbey Road Studios!
It turned out so much more exciting than we expected! The vibe in this studio is great! The staff and facilities are out of this world.
Of course we couldn’t resist having some fun with vintage equipment and amazing recording techniques. Our producer Dave Cobb really made the songs fly, beautifully engineered by Eddie Spear.
The album is due out in October with one or two tracks coming your way ahead of release. Prior to the release we will also post clips/pics from the recording session here on our Facebook page.
Meanwhile we're getting ready to hit the road again for our "Electric Summer tour 2017".
Looking forward to seeing you all out there!

// Europe

...but now you're confusing me. I thought I'd got all this AOR stuff clear in my head. They still sound AOR to me or would you say they are more metal now?

I'd better not start another 'what is AOR?' discussion else I'll get banned

You seem to be struggling there. I think the word you're looking for is shit. They are just plain and simply, shit.

 

There is no remnant of what made people love them in the mid to late 80's and early 90's. Nothing. It's just... shit.

From Diamond Lane (website)

To build on the existing buzz surrounding Diamond Lane, the band has chosen 2017 as the perfect time to release their brand new, full-length studio album, titled “Must Be Hell”. With classic twin guitar attack, a pounding rhythm section, and powerful vocals, this new album provides a refreshing, modern approach to classic heavy metal.

Silence, British Creep!

 

Wow, Karpetface, this is the best information you've ever brought to the forum. This would be amazing if this led to new music. Do you know who's in the band? The original lead singer? Not that creepy British guy from Morning After?

      Doesn't interest me much, but just posting for anyone who might be interested. Just use Google

    • This may not be available outside Europe but here's 'My Desire'. As stated before nothing overwhelming but decent.    
    • From blabbermouth.net: JEFF SCOTT SOTO's SOTO Band Releases New Single In Tribute To Late Bassist DAVID Z SOTO — the metallic hard rock group led by namesake vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (SONS OF APOLLO, W.E.T.) — has released a new single, "Detonate". The song features and was co-written by the group's late bassist, David "Dave Z" Zablidowsky, who was killed in a roadside accident while touring with ADRENALINE MOB exactly one year ago today. A lyric video for "Detonate" can be seen below. Said Jeff: "Today marks the one-year anniversary for probably the most horrible day of my life when SOTO bassist and one of my absolute brothers' life was taken from us so abruptly…David Z's passing not only shocked all of us close to him, but the rest of the world mourned with us as reality set in that we would never see this incredible human being again! "The biggest compliment and tribute I and the band can pay to him is dropping a new SOTOtrack which David co-wrote with our own Edu Cominato in the back lounge of our tour bus while we traipsed around Europe on tour last spring. His tracks on the demo were recorded so well we decided to lift his parts, finish the entire song around him and let you hear the final mark of his work that will also appear on the upcoming SOTO album we are currently writing. "The song is 'Detonate', which I wrote the lyrics about my own brother who was in a coma at that time… the words reflect someone in a lifeless shell/body still functioning enough to know they want to detonate, explode out of that body and come back to life. "With cooperation from the Z family, proceeds from the song once it is released for sale will all go to the David Z Foundation. Here are the details for those who would like to make their own contributions to this incredible person and cause. "We chose this day to honor our brother because we knew he would get all the recognition for it that he deserves. "Today we praise you, brother Dave. You are immensely missed, thought of every day and now immortalized in song with us!" SOTO was formed in 2014 when Jeff Scott Soto realized how much he missed the "heavier side" of his career after fronting artists like Yngwie Malmsteen, TALISMAN and JOURNEY, and even his own solo albums.

SOTO was formed in 2014 when Jeff Scott Soto realized how much he missed the "heavier side" of his career after fronting artists like Yngwie Malmsteen, TALISMAN and JOURNEY, and even his own solo albums. Zablidowsky — who also performed with groups including ZO2, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA and JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS — initially joined Soto's solo touring band in 2013 and appears on both SOTO albums released to date, "Inside The Vertigo"(2015) and "Divak" (2016). In July of 2017, Zablidowsky was touring the United States with ADRENALINE MOB — a group he had joined just months prior — when the band's tour RV, which had pulled off the freeway due to a flat tire, was struck by a tractor-trailer. The accident caused the deaths of both Zablidowsky, 38, and tour manager Jane Train, and resulted in serious injuries by band members Russell Allen, Mike Orlando and Jordan Cannata. Earlier this year, SOTO — which also includes Jorge Salan (guitar), Edu Cominato (drums) and BJ (keys/guitar) — announced the addition of new bassist Tony Dickinson (TSO), who is slated to appear on the group's third album, due in 2019. "It was the one and only natural choice for us after losing our brother David in the horrific accident last year," Soto said at the time. "[Tony] is phenomenally talented, and a great friend. He will fit right in with us, and I cannot wait for more of his contributions as we move the band forward!"      
    • Nothing special happened on July 17th. He posted this on FB: The album contains 12 songs and I have poured my heart and soul into it. I can’t express how much I want to share it with you. I will be releasing the album as soon as everything is ready. VERY CLOSE now. I will keep you updated over the next few days.
