REVIEW : JORN -- Life on Death Road (2017)

JORN is without any doubt one of the best hard rock/metal voices out there. His DIO, Coverdale-esque voice along with a more harder edged tone makes Jorn Lande one of the most characteristic shouters in the metal world in general.

REVIEW : SERENITY BROKEN -- RE/ DeFINE (2017)

The Greek heavy rock band of Serenity Broken strikes back with its brand new opus which is entitled "Re/DeFine". I was really curious about this new record from these heavy rockers 'cause I liked a lot their debut "Commercial Suicide" which was released back in 2012.

REVIEW : SECRET SPHERE -- The Nature of Time (2017)

Secret Sphere is back in music business with their, already, ninth full-length album. "The Nature Of Time" is entitled the band's newest opus and after my first spin I have to say that I like it a lot! Since their creation Secret Sphere achieved to build a strong reputation around their name and a strong base among the fans of the melodic progressive/power metal scene.

REVIEW : THE GRAND MASQUERADE -- MMXVI (2016)

The brand new hope from the Swedish melodic hard rock scene is called The Grand Masquerade!! Yes, this 4-piece melodic hard rock sensational is aiming at big, really big, things in the near future. Their music is pure late 80's melodic hard rock with some strong AOR pinches that makes the final result a must purchase for each and every fan of this scene.

REVIEW : Mark Slaughter -- Halfway There (2017)

One of the most characteristic voices back in the glorious late 80's, early, 90's, U.S. hard rock scene was without any doubt Mark Slaughter! With his main band Slaughter achieved to release some gems that stood in the test of time as classics. Do you remember the hit "Up All Night" (that reached No 21 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart)? I'm sure that you all remember this and the other great tracks such as "Spend My Life", "Fly To The Angels", "Mad About You", "Days Gone By" e.t.c.

REVIEW : VITNE -- Jupiter (2017)

VITNE is an artist that here in Heavy Paradise will always have a welcome home. It's one of those musicians that put passion and heart in his music and that's a thing that reflects in his music. The new record is entitled "Jupiter" and I have to say that it's the best record in Vitne's career so far.

REVIEW : Degreed - Shakedown (Single, 2017)

The truth is that I love this band. Every single record of Degreed is pure candy in my ears. They achieve, in each album, to marry perfectly the classic melodic rock sound with the modern rock and the result is just awesome. Nowadays, Degreed present their brand new song which is entitled "Shakedown", from their upcoming new album, and it's brilliant. The sound seems to move to some more classic Scandi melodic rock paths and the chorus line doesn't get catchier. I'm sure that if the whole record sounds like this gem, then we will be talking about for one of the top albums of 2017!! Let's wait and see (hear!!!). Till' then enjoy this little gem here :  https://youtu.be/1Y-dGjA9bqY





REVIEW : Starsick System – Lies, Hopes & Other Stories (2017)

Starsick System is a band that has its heavenly sound influenced by bands such as Sixx A.M., Alter Bridge and Shinedown to name a few and mixes perfectly melody and power!! Their debut album "Daydreamin'", in 2015, received positive feedback from both fans and press and left a big promise for the future for bigger things.
