    Jerome Mazza - Outlaw Son

    I'm a couple tracks into listening to this, and I'm really enjoying it. His lead vocals are very enjoyable. This is less Kansas-esque than the previous works he was involved with, but you can still hear those aspects. No video since there's nothing on Youtube that I could find, and no audio on the main site because Escape doesn't want sound samples of their releases posted, even only 1-minute tracks. Release date: November 23, 2018. Jerome Mazza is a singer / songwriter born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennyslvania. At the age of 8 he taught himself how to play the guitar and sing after being influenced by guitarist and singer Mark Farner (Grand Funk). Playing guitar and singing through his teenage years Jerome joined his first band at age 19 and toured the east coast in various rock and pop bands. He started writing songs at age 25 and was very influenced by progressive rock band Kansas. In 1990 Jerome became the vocalist for Christian metal band Angelica. To this day the album “Walking in Faith” by Angelica remains their most respected release. Moving on to 2015 Jerome recorded a solo album and then joined forces with Torben Enevoldsen for the band “Pinnacle Point”. It was at this point that Khalil from Escape Music approached Jerome when he discovered him on YouTube singing for the band “Pinnacle Point”. Khalil invited Jerome to sing duet with Steve Walsh on the song “Born In Fire” on the new Steve Walsh CD “Black Butterfly” (Nov 2017 ESM311). Jerome’s performance was so outstanding that Khalil asked him to be a guest to sing additional songs on the Steve Walsh “Black Butterfly” album. It was an easy decision for Jerome to make and the result was explosive! It became obvious that Jerome should record a new solo album and here it is in all its glory! This is a masterpiece of melodic rock featuring Jerome’s incredible vocal range. With backing from musicians that were also featured on the Steve Walsh “Black Butterfly” album, this will be one of the most talked about releases of the year! Jerome Mazza – Lead & Background vocals Tommy Denander – Guitars / Keyboards Steve Overland – Backing vocals Brian Anthony – Bass Chris Metzger – Drums / percussion Track list: 1. Neverland 4:03 2.

  2. Hey guys, Thanks for all the work you've been doing submitting cover art, but I do have a request. When grabbing pictures or scanning pictures, please make sure there's enough resolution to actually work with. The album covers on the site are 200x200 pixels, so anything where the actual cover is that size or bigger is great. Some of the ones that have been submitted, I can't really use since, when I crop the picture to the actual size, they end up being so small that by the time I upsample them to 200x200, the JPEG artifacting is so bad that the picture is blurry. For example, this one is fine: But this one is too small to work with: I'd like to post as high-quality pics as I can. Thanks! -Dan

    StoneLake - Thunder And Rain

    I'm surprised there's no discussion about this release. Very listenable.

    Care Of Night - Love Equals War

    This album is great. Should be a top 10 contender for many here.
  6. heavyharmonies

    Gathering Of Kings

    Past the point of caring. All hype, no delivery. Wake me when the album actually shows up. At this rate, who's to say there might not be another delay or seven?

    Brothers of Metal - Prophecy of Ragnarok

    Damned if this isn't some catchy shit. Digging this one severely.

    Gioeli - Castronovo - Set The World On Fire

    Given the way people are rating this album so highly, I'm wondering if Frontiers bit-starved or otherwise fucked up the mp3s they sent out for press purposes, because I find this album almost unlistenable based on production/mix quality. It's beyond poor. Musically I like it, but the sound quality makes me turn it off a few songs in.

    Southern Empire - Civilisation

    This came out back in July I believe, and I've been ignoring it, as I haven't been in the mood for prog, but decided to give it a listen today. Darned if this isn't quite decent. I've seen references to it referred to as "retro-prog". Fans of long-assed songs need not apply, as the album consists of 4 tracks, of lengths 9:12, 19:12, 29:14 (!!!), and 10:22 totaling just about 70 minutes.

    Not my thing stylistically as far as regular listening goes, but not bad sounding at all.

    Aldo Nova 2.0

    And I repeat: Meh.

    Disturbed - Are You Ready

    Me likey! It's not as heavy as their older material, but seems to have a bit more lush musicality. I like the synth work. Polishes the edges a bit. Die-hards already hate it, and die-hards *always* hate when a band goes more melodic, so it can't possibly be bad.

    Disturbed - Are You Ready

    Realistically though Geoff, if you've "never been a fan of this band" is there anything they could have released that you would have liked? Almost certainly not. So it's really not an indictment of this particular release.

    Disturbed - Are You Ready

    Listening to the new album, and I'm impressed. It's somewhat ballad-heavy, believe it or not, and may not have as hard an edge as their earliest material, but I am really enjoying it. The production is top notch. Very listenable if you like the Disturbed sound/style, which I do.

    Amaranthe - Helix

    Tasty, as anticipated.

    You have my deepest sympathies. Have you consulted a physician?

    Arion - Life Is Not Beautiful

    Ok, I'm going to backtrack a bit now that I'm listening to the entire album. While I still think the new vocalist's vice is thin and could well be improved upon, the overall music itself makes up for it. The instrumental version of the CD would probably be top notch.

    A new spin on Bon Jovi's Runaway

    Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things

    Color me simple, but I really like this album. For those who like Master of Disguise and Visual lies over the earlier material, this is right in there stylistically. Maybe not heavy enough for those who prefer the early material. Much better than Deal with the Devil and Appointment with Death.

    Leah - The Quest

    No discussion of this album on the board, which surprises me. I wasn't sure which subforum to put this in, as it's a bit symphonic metal, some prog, and very melodic overall... kinda like a modern incarnation of Lana Lane but more lush symphonic arrangement. Vocal characteristics are very similar to Sharon from Within Temptation, which is perhaps why I like it so much. I prefer a pop/rock female vocal style to operatic; the latter makes my hair hurt.

    Bonfire - Legends

    No.

    Top-5 2018 (at the moment)

    I can't start making a list yet. Too much good stuff yet to come this year: Disturbed Amaranthe Within Temptation Work of Art (assuming it comes out in 2018)

    Within Temptation - The Reckoning

    And so it begins...
