They say good things come in threes... Swiss / American rockers Khaøs released ‘Risen’, their stunning debut full-length album via MRR Records just last month, days later they released a second single, 'Crisis Factor' and a lyric video. Now the band have posted the third single from the debut and a brand new music video to go along with it.

Entitled ‘Exalted’, this song is something singer Chandler Mogel holds quite close. "It’s an emotional song that many people can identify with," comments guitarist Mark Rossi. "On the lyrical side ‘Exalted’ is also a very personal song." Chandler adds, "This song is simply about finding my true self by helping others. This is a part of me that I can't deny, so why not write a song about it?"

Following the positive reactions and a wide media echo on their self-titled debut in 2012, DEVIL’S TRAIN got their follow-up in the pipeline, now. Again and again have their supporters expressed their joy about a band still combining the heavy sound of the 80s with the classic hard rock attitude of the 70s. Even though,DEVIL’S TRAIN had been thought to be a short-term side project in the beginning, it got clear pretty quickly that everyone had simply too much fun working together to quit – the outcome is quite impressive indeed. Instead of keeping it easy and following the straight concept of traditional heavy rock with a biker attitude, which had been so well accepted in the past, DEVIL’S TRAIN have been refining and enriching their individual style for their classically titled follow up „II“ without compromising any of their principles.

Gov't Mule to release 'Dark Side of the Mule' (Provogue/Mascot Label group)

Gov’t Mule
‘Dark Side of the Mule’
Released: 1CD/3CD+DVD Deluxe Edition – 8th December 2014
Double vinyl 12th January 2015
via Provogue/Mascot Label Group

Rock torchbearers Gov’t Mule are celebrating their 20th anniversary with an extensive tour and a series of dynamic live archival releases that highlight the group’s versatility and epic, fearless live performances. No two Gov’t Mule shows are alike, as the band draws on the more than 300 songs in their repertoire (and often a host of special guests) to create a unique experience each and every time. Their steadily expanding fan base knows that the Mule always has something special waiting for them. Expect the unexpected.

The deep chemistry and steely confidence shared by the quartet allow them to tackle any form of music and stamp it their own while remaining true to the spirit and intent of the original. This can of course be heard any time guitarist-singer Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, bassist Jorgen Carlsson and multi-instrumentalist Danny Louis take the stage, but a series of new live archival releases really drives the point home. 

LAWLESS / R.I.S.E. (2014)

Allow me to start this review by saying that I really enjoyed the band's debut release, "Rock Savage". That was a fine piece of solid melodic hard rock stuff with plenty of melodies, a raw sound and some well-crafted tracks that rocked my world.
