  9. They've changed their name to Land of Gypsies. New single 'Shattered'. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is happy to announce the release of the self-titled debut album from Land Of Gypsies on December 10, 2021. Today, the band, featuring vocalist Terry Ilous, gives fans their first look at the album with the release of the single and video for the track 'Shattered'. Land Of Gypsies, formerly known as Gang Of Souls, is a new L.A. based band featuring an artistic union between vocalist Terry Ilous (XYZ, ex-Great White), together with producer and bassist Fabrizio Grossi (Glenn Hughes, Supersonic Blues Machine, Eric Gales, etc.). Rounding out the lineup are Serge Simic on guitar (The Slam, Supersonic Blues Machine) and Tony Morra on drums. The band spent a wealth of time during the pandemic in 2020 working on and developing their sound. Their target was to write music leaning towards a classic hard rock sound with unforgettable melodies and a solid bluesy background to compliment Ilous' stellar vocals. Terry Ilous says, "My entire career has been about creating the best music I possibly can for the fans. Land of Gypsies allows me to focus on the music and to grow as an artist, while also being able to expand my work both nationally and internationally. I am extremely honored to join such an amazing roster of talent. Expect to hear a lot more from me and Frontiers moving forward.” Tracklist: 1. Believe 2. Shattered 3. Trouble 4. Give Me Love 5.

  12. From Frontiera: Frontiers Music Srl is happy to announce the release of Swedish band The Murder of My Sweet's new album, "A Gentleman's Legacy," on December 10, 2021. THE MURDER OF MY SWEET’s sixth studio album, "A Gentleman's Legacy” is a concept album that, interestingly enough, picks up where the last album from Mind’s Eye, TMOMS drummer/producer Daniel Flores' prog rock band, left off with their 2007 release, “A Gentleman’s Hurricane”. Joining TMOMS on guitar for this record is none other than Mike Palace, who is a big fan of the Mind’s Eye album, and on bass, Patrick Janson, who is very familiar with the prog genre having played with Platitude for several years. "The album took about three months to write and about five months to record from start to end and is probably the longest time I have ever taken in a studio,” says Daniel Flores. "I was afraid of the time I had to take to make a worthy record not only for Mind's Eye fans, but for our amazing TMOMS fans, the fans that actually made this whole thing possible!” As stated above, the connection between The Murder Of My Sweet and Mind's Eye is drummer, producer, and songwriter Daniel Flores. Daniel started TMOMS after Mind’s Eye released "A Gentleman's Hurricane”. The aforementioned record was a concept album about Adam Evangelista, a former CIA agent and hired gun who had gone rogue. Adam's story was told throughout the album via confessions to a priest, the priest that had actually raised Adam and had done him wrong with severe punishments, probably causing Adam to become the ice cold murderer he was. In the song 'Ashes to Ashes (In Land Lullaby)', Adam gets to see his daughter Pandora for the first time, a young Mexican/American who is desperately trying to find her father. And here is where we pick up the story with the new The Murder Of My Sweet album, "A Gentlemans Legacy". Pandora is now a grown woman and is going down the same road as her father, taking revenge on the ones who were giving her father Adam his orders, the infamous Illuminati, our antagonist on this new album. The album tells the story of Pandora Evangelista and her journey, facing the challenges her father had to endure and suffering the ultimate punishment: remorse, the one thing no one can escape from. The protagonist is played by TMOMS vocalist Angelica Rylin, whose lyrics show a woman's intuition and what she would go through in such a situation, giving the character a woman's touch while collaborating with the original creator of the story, Daniel Flores. Flores was challenged to go back to his progressive roots for this album and the sound is influenced by Queensrÿche and Genesis, but with his own personal touches highlighting strong melodies and letting the music stay in line with the development of the story. Enjoy this magnificent, and unexpected, work of art for both the music and the storytelling! Tracklist: 1. Six Feet Under 2. A Ghost Of A Chance 3. Damnation 4. The Wheels Of Time 5. Winged 6. Kill Your Darlings 7. Fathers Eyes 8. Rise Above 9. Trick Of The Devil 10. Heads Or Tails 11. Please, Don't Wait Up 12. Finding Closure LINE-UP: Angelica Rylin - vocals Daniel Flores – drums Mike Palace – guitar Patrick Janson - bass www.facebook.com/tmomsband
  13. This was better than I expected. Good stuff. Press release: NOBODY BUT YOU is the first music video from the British female fronted Melodic Hard Rock Band TAO. The song comes from their debut album ‘PROPHECY’. TAO, which features Karen Fell (vocals), Chris Gould (guitars) and Dave Rosingana (bass), will release their album “Prophecy” on the 15th of October 2021 via Tarot Label Media. Track listing: 1. Nobody But You 2. Rock Brigade 3. Angels And Clandestine Fools 4. Breathe In, Breathe Out 5. Fire In The Sky 6. Might Just Break your Heart 7. Prophecy 8. Fight Club 9. Nazarene 10. Gone Forever The album was produced by Gary Hughes (TEN) and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward at The TrakShak, Germany. All songs written by Gary Hughes Recorded at The Doghouse Studio, Blackpool, England Line-up: Karen Fell – Vocals Chris Gould– Guitars (ex-Serpentine) Dave Rosingana – Bass Guitars Additional Musicians: Darrel Treece-Birch (TEN) - Keyboards Brian Webster - Drums Gary Hughes (TEN) - Backing Vocals and keyboards on "Prophecy" and "Nazarene". In Chinese philosophy TAO means "The absolute principle underlying the universe, combining within itself the principles of yin and yang, signifying the way, a code of behaviour that is in harmony with the natural order". Hailing from Edinburgh (Scotland), Cardiff (Wales) and Barrow in England, the female fronted melodic hard rock band TAO is the living proof of the legacy of the melodic hard rock genre in the UK. Bringing together a strong team of individual musicians under the watchful eye and songwriting prowess of TEN mastermind Gary Hughes, this band is poised for great things, with this brilliant collection of songs, under the album title “Prophecy”. With Karen Fell’s passionate vocals, Chris Gould’s emotional yet furious guitar playing (where it needs to be) and Dave Rosingana’s unmistakable bass tones, this release will definitely hit a soft spot of fans of 80s influenced melodic hard rock in the vein of Heart, Roxette or Pat Benatar. They have already created promotional videos for 5 tracks from PROPHECY and they will be 'step releasing' these videos in order to promote the album upon release whilst also extending the period of promotion and intensifying the push beyond. “PROPHECY” contains just under an hour of amazing original music performed by 3 truly gifted and unique artists. www.facebook.com/officialTAOband
  14. So exactly the same thing happened what happened to Fans of the Dark: signing with Frontiers and all of their previous stuff being taken down from Youtube. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to welcome Vypera to the label family! Vypera is another excellent young, up-and-coming hard rock band from the ever fruitful Swedish rock scene. The band is currently working on their debut album, which the label plans to release in 2022. ”We are head over heels thrilled that we have been given this chance and opportunity to show you all what we’ve been up to musically! Frontiers Records have always had these amazing bands that we love to death, and now we have a place there?! It’s sick.. but we are so up for it!! Musically, our sound is supposed to be a mix between W.A.S.P., Triumph, Rainbow and our own minds. Guess that’s what happens when all of us are into that old damn good stuff! Again, we are more than excited! See you out there!!” Vypera Vypera formed as ”Madhouse” in Sandviken, Sweden in 2016 as a covers band, but soon began to hunger for making their own music. They changed their name to Vypera and began writing music that they felt traveled on the same good ol’ road where their influences like Rainbow, Icon, King Kobra, London, Triumph, W.A.S.P. had originally started. Their signature is that classic hard rock style played with immense pride…and joy. Formed by lead singer Andreas Wallström, guitarist Christoffer Thelin, bassist Andreas Andersson, and drummer Johan Pettersson, Vypera are hard rockers to the core. Emerging from the fruitful Swedish rock scene, they are currently hard at work on their first full-length album. Cederick Forsberg (Crystal Viper, Blazon Stone) is producing. Stay tuned for more news soon!
  15. Tears For Fears were great up to about '89, after that I lost interest in them.
