New AOR for 2010.

 

Unfortunately I cant find any links anywhere to this, but apparently they have signed to Frontiers and it is supposed to be massive. Could be the WET for 2010.

Sounds interesting. I quite liked the Kick stuff, so will definitely be keeping an eye and ear on this one.

I have no idea who these guys are or what this is supposed to sound like, but Khymera and Kick are two bands I love so I'll keep an eye on it.

Just heard tonight on ARFM that this album will be released later in 2010 on the Frontiers label - is supposed to be most excellent! One to look out for! Cheers

Still can't find diddly squat on the net, but I have it on good authority that this should hit around August.

 

One to look forward to....could be good.

See Andrew has a track from the forthcoming album on his new melodic rock compilation - a 90 sec snippet can be heard on his front page.

 

Sounds good. Pure AOR.

Press release from Frontiers.......finally!

 

------------------------------------------

 

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the signing of Vega, a very exciting new Melodic Rock band from the UK, featuring former Kick vocalist Nick Workman and the successful and respected songwriting partnership of Tom and James Martin (House of Lords, Ted Poley of Danger Danger, Khymera, Sunstorm to name but a few), together with drummer Dan Chantrey.

Vega are set to bring back the reputation of British Melodic Rock music with a strongly original sound approach that while obviously influenced by the genre's greatest names (from Bon Jovi, to Def Leppard and Journey) adds a strong personal element that will definitely bring the band to the attention of a very wide audience. The band's debut album Kiss Of Life has been recorded under the direction of producer John Greatwood (engineer for Tom Lord-Alge of Queen fame), with the band selecting a total of 12 songs out of a total of 25 written for the purpose. Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) stepped up to the plate to put the final touches to the album, mastering it in his studio in Germany. The band has also recently finished the shooting of the first video for the album title track, which will be launched as first single in the fall.

Singer Nick Workman commented: “We are pleased and excited to be signed to Frontiers Records. We are very proud of this album and believe that it brings new vibe to the rock scene whilst maintaining the roots of all of the bands that have inspired us over the years!” Frontiers plans to release the debut album Kiss of Life later this year with more details to follow later. VEGA will be out on the road in the new year taking their music to the Rock fans live on stage!

The full track up on their Myspace page sounds bloody good. If it's on Frontiers, available through NEH, it will most likely be in my cd player soon there after.

Ditto Dave........I listened to the sample posted on their MYSPACE page and it had a smooth AOR flow to it.....uptempo and melodic. I too am looking forward to hearing more!!

Wow, this is a really great pure AOR album.

 

'Stay With Me' and 'What It Takes' are 2 excellent ballads! Really intelligent song writing like the Unruly Child album. Love it.

 

My choice track is A.N.Other.........bloody wicked.

Wowser! Wowser pants around my ankles! Love this album. I could not find a moment where I could fault it to be honest. I am a huge fan of Kick but there is no doubt that this destroys any and all Kick discs, including the excellent 'Consider this...'

 

Great melodic rock album, this. And I think I've finally found my favourite song of the year... and in a year where there are about 8000 incredible songs, I think 'Stay with me' will top them all. What a spine chiller. Absolutely stunning piece of melodic rock. We agree on the song, Glen, but I don't really classify this as a ballad at all to be honest. ;)

 

Anyway, this destroys Unruly Child imo, and I'm just figuring out if there's any room possibly left in my top 10, even 5 for this album. Great stuff!

    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
