King Company (ex-No Man's Land) - One For The Road


Recommended Posts




Press release from Frontiers Music:


Frontiers Music Srl is excited to present to the world the talents of another newcomer from the cold lands of Finland – introducing KING COMPANY!

Formerly known as No Man`s Land, KING COMPANY features some well known names and faces of the finnish Hard Rock and Metal scene, including Pasi Rantanen (THUNDERSTONE *OFFICIAL*) on vocals, Antti Wirman (Warmen) on guitars, Jari Pailamo on keyboards, Time Schleifer (ENFΔRCE)on bass and Mirka Rantanen (Kotipelto, Thunderstone) on drums.

The band says: "From the beginning our dream was to get a deal from Frontiers, because not only there are so many legendary rock bands in the same label, but most importantly they are really focused on our style of classic and melodic hard rock music", says drummer Mirka Rantanen. "We feel that at Frontiers they really know how to push this kind of music for the people, they really like every band they have signed, and do this with a big heart like we do. Together we can show to the world that classic hard rock - or heavy rock, how ever you want name it - isn`t really dead yet, it`s still alive and kickin'! We are looking forward for the cooperation with Frontiers Records and can´t wait to begin this chapter. It will be a great moment to release our first album, so stay tuned guys, spread the word and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. One for the road dudes!"

Frontiers is really excited about developing new killer talent and looks forward to releasing King Company’s debut album sometime in the summer of 2016.


But it’s not about the names here, but about the music! Excited by the first bunch of songs that were presented to the label, Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino pretty much signed the band after first listen! Judge for yourself after hearing the grandiose Melodic Hard Rock sound of these two demo tracks:

Only ever heard the first song when you started this thread, and I recall enjoying it back then. But that second song is so much better. I love that groove.

Not bad... a bit of prog influence there which actually wrecks the song, to be honest, but there's a glimmer in there. Not one I'll be looking forward to, but something maybe worth checking out.

Yeah, I dunno mate, sounds like Magum. 25 years ago that may have been a compliment but it's not now. It is better than them at the moment, but I still don't like it. Just ugly operatic kind of stuff, like Magnum mixed with Ten... but mostly, just bad. :( IMO.

All my fav tunes are on the second half -


'Farewell' is pretty good, but the real winners are 'Wings of Love' (really nice, and cracking solo), 'Desire' (arse kicker!!) and the last song 'Holding On'


There is promise for a second album if they could produce a whole album like those songs.


Can I just say though that 'Cast Away' is shite.

    • New song 'Power Of Will'.    
    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.
    • George W Bush's Grandfather (Aleister) got it. Charlie didn't get it, but his heart was in the right place.       
    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
