What is going on over at melodicrock.com?

What is going on over there? Only a hand full of news updates have been made in more than a month.

 

Is the work load too much for Andrew? Is the website simply on the decline? Is the website getting revamped? (I know there was mention at one point of getting it modernized.) Or is it simply that there is nothing to report in the melodic rock world?

 

I really miss reading the daily news....on a more regular basis.

I know, what is going on? He has not done a release date update since like 2009

Guys, it's a combination of things so take it easy. He has had some health stuff, site upgrade delays, vacation of late. He is even asking for help if anyone wants to contribute.

It's still the best music news site out there by a country mile.

As Jarred says it's a great site and he's done soooo much for this genre of music we all love.

 

I know there was mention of some health and vacation time a while back but I could be wrong.

 

Hopefully everything is okay with him and he can get it all caught up and back on track.

Maybe those few idiots on the message board "burned the place to the ground" .................

 

 

Nah, Andrew might just be ill. But I hope he and his site will soon be back.

I hope none of you misinterpreted what I said. I have nothing but respect for Andrew and what he's accomplished. I just have limited internets time, so I spend it here.

One thing to keep in mind is that Andrew is working on upgrading the site, organizing the next Melodic Rock Fest, and was just at NAMM this past weekend so he's probably a little frazzled... :-)

I think the same comments surface the same time every year, which if I'm not mistaken, is usually resolved by the fact that the dude's just taking a vacation?

He mentioned earlier that he's busy preparing a new website and makes it difficult for him to post anything on the old database so everyone was invited to join his Facebook and Tweet if you want a quick update, but meanwhile, let's just wait until the new site is ready

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM
