MASTERCASTLE / Enfer [De La Bibliothèque Nationale] (2014)

Founded in 2008 by guitarist Pier Gonella (Necrodeath) and vocalist Giorgia Gueglio, Mastercastle soon became one of the promising acts in the European Power/Neoclassical Metal scene. 'Enfer De La Bibliothèque Nationale' is the band's  fifth release already and they are ready to take things into a higher level.

Lordi: „Scare Force One“ to be released on October 31st!

Finnish shock rock masters LORDI are gearing up for the release of their new album “Scare Force One”, which will arrive on October 31st (yes, Halloween…). Preceding, the track "Nailed By The Hammer Of Frankenstein" will be available as digital single from September 19th on.

The CD first edition comes as Digipak, "Scare Force One" will also be released as ltd. (orange) Vinyl edition (500 copies worldwide only!) and as box set.
Check out this first teaser.

Fasten your seatbelts, "Scare Force One" is getting ready for takeoff!

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the hotly anticipated fourth studio album from CRAZY LIXX. The self-titled album will be released on November 7th in Europe and November 11th in North America.

just like every Rock band does at some point in their career, CRAZY LIXX thought it was the right time to release their Self-Titled album: the kind of album that really does the band’s name justice and that shows everyone what the band and their music is really all about. This is that album for Sweden’s CRAZY LIXX!
Says lead singer and producer Danny Rexon“We were discussing possible titles for the album and we didn’t really feel like any of the suggestions were quite right. Then I came up with the idea of a making it a self-titled album and we all agreed this was the right time for one. You know, bearing the very name of the band, a self-titled album does have a lot to live up to, but we all felt that this album has what it takes to represent the band as a whole, both in terms of the songs, the sound and the performance.”

With their new album, CRAZY LIXX show their growth as a band by sinking their teeth into 11 anthemic rock songs that will satisfy both the hardcore Lixx fans, as well as all fans of melodic hard rock and hair metal in general. By combining the strategies of recording and producing the album themselves along with utilizing the mixing skills of the great Chris Laney, the band has once again returned to the bombastic sound of CRAZY LIXX’s earlier work while at the same time adding the improved song-writing and musicianship of today’s CRAZY LIXX.

Thadeus Gonzalez (ex-Electric Sister) debut UTOPIAN SOCIETY

Los Angeles, CA…Oakland-based vocalist/songwriter Thadeus Gonzalez will release his debut album, UTOPIAN SOCIETY, on September 9, 2014.  The 11-track collection showcases influences from classic rock, metal, punk, and ‘90s alt.

“The Nude Land” opens the record with aggressive rock bombast, also demonstrated in the title track.  It moves into alt tracks like “Your Needle Scratches My Vinyl” and the punk influenced “Literally.”  While the lyrics are evocative and unusual, Gonzalez’s unique writing style is most evident in the sexy, moody “Our Connection” and the vulnerably revealing ballad, “White.”

KHAØS will release "Risen" on October 20th, 2014!

Khaøs are back after their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘RISING’ released in late 2012. ‘RISEN’ is its logical continuation and is the band’s first full-length album containing twelve new songs. The new album was recorded under the direction of Rolf Munkes at his Empire Studios in Germany (Empire, Majesty, Razorback, Tony Martin) and mastered by music legend and award winner for Adele’s ‘21’ Tom Coyne at Sterling Sound in NYC.

KHAØS, is a Swiss/American band featuring Chandler Mogel on vocals, Mark Rossi on guitar, N I c Angileri on bass and Trevor Franklin on drums.
KHAØS was formed in June 2012 around the idea of making music without any kind of compromises. The band name itself reveals the main musical target: to let creativity, musicality and energy flow, destroying barriers and breaking through obstacles. Music itself is the centerpiece of this work.

KHAØS is a project on a global scale, involving two continents, America and Europe, and going possibly beyond. This came together thanks to the internet. It was an idea they wanted to put to the test. 
‘Risen’ Line-up: Chandler Mogel – vocals, Mark Rossi – guitars, N I c Angileri – bass, Trevor Franklin - drums  

Jimmy Barnes celebrates 30 years as a solo artist with new star studded album + EPK!

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Jimmy Barnes’ debut as a solo recording artist, and to celebrate this extraordinary milestone, Jimmy has recorded HINDSIGHT, his 15th studio album.

In his own words, “At this time 30 years ago, I’d just left Cold Chisel. It was a frightening world out there. I was wondering what I was going to do and how it was going to work. Luckily for me, I had a great ally, partner and sounding board in Michael Gudinski.

“I think we finished the last of [Chisel’s] The Last Stand shows in December ’83 and I was on tour and road-testing songs by February/March ’84, then in the studio recording in April, so we didn’t muck about at all. “I was trying to do something special for the 30th anniversary. Chisel did Standing On The Outside, where we got a lot of our favourite bands to record our songs. It’s a great idea, but everyone’s been doing it. And, that idea took me out of the picture. So I thought, I’ll get all my favourite acts and I’ll get to sing with them! It’s either me beingthe singer, or doing duets.”
