DARE - release new album „Sacred Gound“ on Legend Records on July 15th, 2016!

One of the UK’s finest Melodic Rock bands, DARE, will return with their brand new studio album “SACRED GROUND” on July 15th, 2016 via Legend Records!

Fronted by singer songwriter Darren Wharton (who first rose to fame in the early eighties playing keyboards with legendary Irish rock band Thin Lizzy), DARE are one of the most respected and innovative melodic rock bands working today, gaining cult status among AOR fans throughout Europe, the UK and the world. The band’s debut 1989 album ‘Out Of The Silence’ recorded at Joni Mitchell’s Bel Air Studio Los Angeles, and produced by Nickelback  producer Mike Shipley is still widely regarded today as one of the all time great AOR albums.

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the brand new album from Italian prog metal masters DGM, entitled “The Passage”, on August 26th.

“The Passage” is DGM’s eighth studio album and is the culmination of almost 20 years of hard work that started back in 1997 with the release of their self-produced mini-album, ‘Random Access Zone’. The band went through several incarnations and lineup changes during the years, but since singer Mark Basile joined the group in 2007, DGM evolved and developed their sound into what they have now become.
It was probably the release of “Frame” (2007) that pushed the band into the top of the league of international prog metal. It was also on the strength of this material that DGM managed to tour for almost four years around the world, taking part in some of the biggest metal festivals, supporting Symphony X on their European tour, and sharing the stage with Pagan's Mind too. In 2013, DGM came back with "Momentum", an album which showed the full stylistic maturity of a band which felt fully confident with their abilities, both on the songwriting and the musicianship side. The last album was promoted with more shows and after several gigs in Europe, they performed for the second time at ProgPower USA and started their first Asian tour in November 2014 playing Beijing, Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka as headliners.

Steel City: updates from the band

Italian metallers Steel City have been announced in the lineup of Masters Of Rock, the main Open Air festival in the Czech Republic ( The Crema-based metal band will perform on the Rock Face Stage, dedicated to emerging realities; it's a return to the Czech festival, where they performed last year receiving huge acclaims from the organizers and the crowd. 

The drummer Francesco Valente will not take part to the festival, due to an off-stage accident: his place behind the drums will be taken by Aleph's drummer Manuel Togni (, a live session man who shared the stage with the likes of Uli John Roth, Nathaniel Peterson, Kee Marcello, Stuart Hamm and many others. Meanwhile, the band entered the Atomic Stuff Studios in Isorella, Brescia, Italy, to record a single under the supervision of producer Oscar Burato.
