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:

    • 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  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.
