HAREM SCAREM / Thirteen (2014)

The waiting is finally over for the new Harem Scarem record which is entitled "Thirteen" (their thirteen official album). For me, Harem Scarem was and still is one of the most underrated melodic hard rock bands ever; they truly deserved a wider recognition 'cause this band was never the ordinary melodic hard rock band as so many others from that scene.

We are pleased to announce the signing of Californian heavy rockers,
EDGE OF PARADISE, on a multi-album record deal.

Edge of Paradise are a melodic heavy metal / hard rock powerhouse which boasts a rhythm section from bassist Nick Ericson and drummer John Chominsky (Synn); combined with the soaring vocals of Margarita Monet and towering guitars of Dave Bates.
"We really are looking forward to this partnership and making waves in the southern hemisphere," commented Bates (Guitarist/Co-founder). "We've had a few record labels approach us in the past but they often have very archaic business models that don't work. We need someone who is looking forward."
The partnership between Twin Peak Records and Edge of Paradise will hit the ground running with the release of "Immortal Waltz" throughout Australia, New Zealand and selected South East Asian territories.

Pre-orders will be available in the final days of December via Twenty13 and Twin Peak Records; closely followed by sale to the general public in late January (through all the usual digital outlets).

BLOODBOUND / Stormborn (2014)

Whooa, this is what I call heavy 'to the bone' metal stuff! And even though I'm not a big fan of this band, this record grabbed me at once and left me hungry for more! For sure, Bloodbound knows how to deliver a traditional metal album! "Stormborn" is the band's sixth, already, official release and to be honest, their best to date!


H.E.A.T is one of those bands which you need to see live on stage. Armed with a reputation of a brilliant live act, Sweden’s rock sensation always delivers an energetic and passionate show. "Live In London" is the band’s first ever live release and truly captures them at their best.
