REVIEW : WARNER DRIVE -- ...Till The Wheels Fall Off (2017)

I have to say that the name of these L.A. rockers, Warner Drive, is no stranger to me. Their 2014's album with the title "City Of Angels" was a really solid one and filled me up with positive vibe and included a bunch of some excellent tunes in it. Nowadays, Warner Drive strikes back with a brand new album which is entitled "....Till The Wheels Fall Off".

AOR HEAVEN announce new albums from LIONHEART & DA VINCI; release date set for both to August 25th, 2017!

With the release of “Ambition Rocks", their first album in 25 years, and with a new lineup, AOR & Classic Rock band Da Vinci returns with brand new songs.

The group was formed in Norway back in 1986, and after a short round with demos, the band got a record deal with Polygram Norway and released their debut album the following year.
Looking back on the Norwegian melodic rock of the 80’s, one of the bands to leave a major impression were undoubtedly Oslo’s Da Vinci. 

Enjoying as much radio play and charting nationally in the same league as Return, Stage Dolls and TNT, Da Vinci released two albums, ”Da Vinci” and ”Back in the Business” and a single in 91 “Ain't No Goodbyes/ Blame it on the radio”.

Their greatest hits were “Forever in My Heart” and “Tarquinia” from the first album; and “Call Me a Liar” and “9&10” from “Back in Business”. DaVinci was touring constantly from late 86 to 92 and did over 600 performances in Norway. They also played as support for Status Quo on their Christmas Remedy tour in 1989 in Great Britain together with Ole Evenrude. 

The last concerts were two gigs at Wembley Arena. They split up in 93, but Selboskar, Westlie and Aass continued to write songs together for a few years. Some of these demo songs were illegally released in Europe.

THE RODS joined on stage by original MANOWAR guitarist ROSS THE BOSS at Brooklyn, New York show

Old school classic heavy metal power trio THE RODS were joined onstage by legendary MANOWAR co-founding guitarist ROSS THE BOSS during their recent headline show at St. Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, New York.
THE RODS drummer Carl Canedy has checked with the following comment:
"The first time Ross and I played together in Manowar, it was like we'd been playing together for years. It was the same feeling being on stage again with him at St Vitus Bar. Ross jumped in as if he'd been a member of The Rods from day one. The crowd went nuts... they love him! I can never say enough about how honest, kind and amazingly talented Ross The Boss is. The guy is a legend! "
