Street Symphonies Records & Burning Minds Music Group are excited to announce all the details of "Scene Of The Crime", new official studio album by hard/sleaze rockers, Speed Stroke. 
 
Speed Stroke are five guys who share a common passion for the golden times of rock and roll, when the music was played by true rockstars. Founded in Italy in 2010, the band was introduced to the international rock scene in 2011 thanks to their involvement in "Reborn In Sleaze", an official tribute album released in memory of Dave Lepard (Crashdïet). In March 2013 the band launched its S/T debut album, followed by “Fury” in 2016. Thanks to the deal signed with Bagana Rock Agency, Speed Stroke had the chance to promote their work all around Italy and abroad, sharing the stage with artists such as Reckless Love, Backyard Babies, Hardcore Superstar, Gotthard, Phil Campbell, Crazy Lixx, The 69 Eyes, Steel Panther, Santa Cruz, The Cruel Intentions, Shameless/Tuff, Sister, Tigertailz, Kissin' Dynamite and Confess.
 
Their explosive shows, filled with high-octane energy, passion, and excitement, contributed to the creation of a strong fanbase, especially in their home country. A key ingredient of their gigs is their natural ability to interact with an audience.
 
The title of the new album, "Scene Of The Crime", tells a lot about the band's sound and attitude: when the five pieces combo is around, on-stage or backstage, something epic is always expected to happen! With a more varied and mature sound, but still inspired by their childhood heroes, they turned their classic style into a 21st-century hard rock album, with a strong focus on the good melodies, undoubtedly their best so far. Definitely, Speed Stroke are back with a bang! 
 
Mixed by Marco Paradisi & D.B. at Boat Studio (Bologna, Italy) and mastered by Giovanni Versari at La Maestà Mastering (Grammy winner for his work on the album "Drones" by Muse), "Scene Of The Crime" is scheduled for release on November 6, 2020, via Street Symphonies Records / Burning Minds Music Group. A special personalized edition, created by Outward Styles in a very limited quantity of 50 copies, will be available exclusively on the label's online shop in October. The cover art has been designed by SoloMacello (Black Veil Brides, Nick Oliveri, Elvenking, Band Of Spice, Valient Thorr), while the CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by renowned journalist Fabio Magliano (Metal Hammer Italy)
 
A dedicated Japanese version, which includes the exclusive bonus track “Drive Me Crazy”, will be released instead via Spiritual Beast / Universal Music. Pre-orders are open at this link:

    • I first heard this a few years ago, and it has probably been discussed on here before but the search function throws up everything when you search for Jani or Serial Killer. I had liked the song The one that got away on Alice Coopers Along came a spider album, and one day a few years ago I found out it was originally an unreleased Jani Lane song. Being a huge Jani fan I have just been wishing that all the unreleased stuff I have heard over the years would get a remaster and a proper release as he was one hell of a song writer and singer. This though sounds fully produced. Also found an old interview from 2010 where Jani discussed working with Alice on his (then) upcoming Welcome 2 my nightmare album, but sadly looking at the writing credits, they went in a different direction as there are no Jani writing credits. I wonder if there are any unreleased Alice Cooper songs from those writing sessions?  
    • Yeah true mine came with the card too - no. 304

    • Popping back in to plug a damn fine album by a damn fine group.  Came out this Friday and I can't stop listening to it. These Swedes have been on an upward trajectory since their debut in 2017. This is already their 4th album. The last one, Rambler, was very good so I thought it would be hard to top, but they have succeeded by a considerable margin.  Black Paisley take their influences from the classic 80s hard/heavy rock genre, with a tinge of modern vibes. Guitarist Franco Santunione joined for the Rambler album and he was a real shot in the arm.  This is riffy, melodic, head bop inducing stuff.  Everything is excellent on this album, but a few songs stick out even more IMO, and they are Set Me Free, In the Night, World's Turning, Silent Asylum and Crazy.  If you haven't checked these fellas out, you really should.  I don't know how to embed Spotify or YT links, so if someone nice could help out, it would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Pretty decent... not mad about it. 
    • Nice. I like it a lot. And yeah, very good quality for a demo. 
    • Didn't know what to make of that one so I actually checked out another song from them-   So they are a rock band... just not really sure what to make of them. Sounds a bit thin, and dare I actually say it, but can something be over-produced? Not sure if that's just me listening on a laptop, though. But I'm moderately intrigued. 
    • Wow, hook line and sinker with the first song alone. Magnificent. Will check out asap.
