New song 'No Smoke Without a Fire' (Bad Company cover).

I've always liked the original version.

From Frontiers:

One of the great up-and-coming hard rock singers of our time, Ronnie Romero (Rainbow, Lords Of Black, Sunstorm, The Ferrymen) has announced the release of a unique covers album, "Raised On Radio" on April 15, 2022. 

"Raised On Radio" features covers of classics that have meant something special to Romero over the years and helped forge this talented singer's musical style. Songs by legendary acts like Survivor, Bad Company, Foreigner, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and more are given Romero's talented vocal treatment here. Joining Romero is a stellar cast of musicians, including Srdjan Brankovic (The Big Deal, Alogia) on guitar, Javi Garcia on bass, Andy C (ex-Lords of Black) on drums, and Alessandro Del Vecchio on keyboards, who also handled production, mixing and mastering.

Serafino Perugino, President & Head of A&R for Frontiers, obviously already had a working relationship with Romero through Lords Of Black and The Ferrymen, but knew Romero had the pipes to sing Melodic Rock/AOR (hence why he brought him in to sing for 2020's "Afterlife" by Sunstorm). As the two discussed Romero working on a solo album for the label, Perugino brought forward the idea of Romero covering classic AOR and Classic Rock artists for a covers album. Romero, being a fan of these styles already and influenced by them in his formative years, knew he could easily pick a killer list of songs that suited his tastes and thus, "Raised On Radio" was born.

Through Romero's career thus far, he has performed killer renditions of several rock classics as part of his shows fronting legendary acts like Rainbow and the Michael Schenker Group (MSG). He's also covered classic songs by Journey, Queen, Rainbow, and more with Spanish metallers Lords Of Black. So, with trying his hand at covers by legendary artists being familiar territory already, “Raised on Radio" were waters that Romero was already comfortable wading into.

But rather than go for covers of well known mega-hits, Romero and company went for, in most cases, lesser known, deep cuts from these legendary bands. Because after all, when you truly love a band, you know those gems buried beneath the surface on their hit albums. Such gems by Queen, Kansas, Elf, Uriah Heep, Bad Company, Foreigner, and more are taken on here with passion and enthusiasm by Ronnie and his backing band of supremely talented players.

Romero's voice and prolific musical activity have brought him to the forefront of the hard rock/metal scene where he can be seen/heard with Lords of Black, The Ferrymen, Sunstorm, Rainbow, and the Michael Schenker Group. Ambitious and driven as always, this record is a special treat for fans while Romero continues work on his proper debut solo album of original material, which is being worked on at the moment.

New song 'Girl on the Moon'.

 

 

Man, talk about missing the point of a song.  "Girl on the Moon" is a minimalist, haunting song.  This...is not.  It's not badit just isn't right.

    • PUBLISHED MAY 22, 2022     WAR BABIES digitally remastered by Bad Reputation Records, one of the label’s first releases under this new name, previously known as Axe Killer. Released in 1992, “War Babies” appeared too late into the melodic hard rock scene when the musical climate was already changing in favor to the depressive grunge, and the group disband next year. Ironically, WAR BABIES hailed from from Seattle. But it doesn’t matter their headquarters, WAR BABIES delivered here a killer melodic hard rock record driven by crunchy guitars and class vocals courtesy of former TKO vocalist Brad Sinsel. There’s 2 songs co-written with KISS’ Paul Stanley, and the production of Thom Panunzio (Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple) is huge. A monstrous album ala Hardline, Wildside, Roxy Blue, etc. The Bad Reputation remastering job is excellent, adding 3 bonus tracks. HIGHLY Recommended 01 – Hang Me Up 02 – In The Wind 03 – Cry Yourself To Sleep 04 – Sweetwater 05 – Sea Of Madness 06 – Blue Tomorrow 07 – Satellite 08 – Death Valley Of Love 09 – Big Big Sun 10 – Killing Time 11 – Care (Man I Just Don’t) 12 – Hang Me Up (Edit Version) [bonus track] 13 – Cry Yourself To Sleep (Single Version) [bonus track] 14 – Cry Yourself To Sleep (Guitar Version) [bonus track] Brad Sinsel – lead vocals, acoustic guitars Tommy McMullin – guitars, backing vocals Guy Lacey rhythm – guitars, backing vocals Shawn Trotter – bass, backing vocals Richard Stuverud – drums, percussion, backing vocals with: Benmont Tench, Mike “Bubba” Abercrombie – keyboards Mike &Kip Lennon – background vocals Todd Cerney – background vocals (2) Thom Panunzio – percussion, producer   Try here: www.amazon.de/War-Babies-Rem/dp/B00008A8JQ

    • Welcome. I am a long time Heavy Harmonies follower, and only joined this forum last year. The folks on this forum have forgotten more about hard rock and heavy metal music than I will ever know and I'm an old dude!  They know a ton of stuff. I just try to follow a long..... 
    • There's like 300 years of musical experience in the picture.   I've always been a Foreigner fan but have always been disappointed that they've never really pursued wanting to put out new material, when they've had all these years such a great singer in Kelly Hansen. Oh well, I guess.
