Good stuff!


From sleazeroxx.com:


'Sapphire' was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in a creatively charged, beer-fueled escapade that lasted 13 days in the elusive GoDaveyGo Studios in North Hollywood, California. Produced by Rev. Tom Chandler and Davey Rieley, this album is sure to quench the thirst of any rock enthusiast.

Diamond Lane is a young American hard rock band of Los Angeles, California. Their music is party-centric and features commercially attractive choruses with fist pumping guitar riffs that have most recently attracted the ears of major broadcast network, FOX.

Founding members Brandon Baumann and Jarret Reis, long time friends from high school in northern California, met Ray Zhang, Frankie Lindia and Zak St. John when the band relocated to Los Angeles in 2009. Since then, upon their release of full-length record 'World Without Heroes', Diamond Lane has routinely sold out various Sunset Strip venues, including the famous House Of Blues, has regularly participated in the Sunset Strip Music Festival, and continues to build a reputation for itself as the local band that not only plays great music, but also puts on an exciting, interactive show."

I really liked their last album and all I need to hear is the first tune here - 'What I am' - to know I also like this very much. Great band, will check this out asap. Production sounds incredible for a little EP released on CD Baby.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What?

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
