DECEPTIC – “Ocean” - official music video available now!

"The Artifact" on the album cover and the statue in the video is shown as a Manta ray, which is supposed to be feared and avoided at any circumstances. This mammal is known to travel from time to time in ridiculously huge flocks, and no one seems to know the exact reason why. The only way to not end up as a copy of “everyone else” is to follow your heart and fulfill your dreams!
The video is made entirely with 3D effects, and set out in a stormy, windy weather, and Igor realized the story and the band’s intention with the song perfectly.

The band online:


Midwest hard rockers Cimino have tied in the launch of their video for "Alive" (the third single from their Angels & Animals album) with Classic Rock's "Tracks of the Week" series and it can be viewed here (link to the location of the video on the CR site)
Frontman, Kyle Cimino says, "Classic Rock is one of the top music magazines in the world and we're completely thrilled to be chosen to be one of their "Tracks of the Week" and to basically launch our video through the site as well."
With Angels & Animals, Cimino has taken their music from a regional level to the world stage, racking up positive reviews around the globe and introducing themselves to new audiences everywhere. "Now we just have to get to all these new places!" laughs Kyle..
Some Press For Angels & Animals:
"This is not just straight ahead rock, but also bombastic, bluesy hard riffs and of course tender ballads. Something for all ages.  What more could you want?" - Stormbringer (Austria)

JOHN TAGLIERI / Days Like These (2014)

This is the artist's twelfth release!! It has that great balance which led Taglieri to Days Like These. "I’m very lucky” says Taglieri. "I have had an amazing career which has led me to amazing places. My wife and new baby are a fantastic support base and allow me to be all I can be musically. The record adds to that balance with a great mix of upbeat material and ballads…songs about life and the ins and outs of it. “Days Like These" was written the day my wife and I found out we were having a baby and truly talks about the amazing feeling of becoming a dad".

MIDNIGHT SIN / Sex First (2014)

Midnight Sin is a new band that combines perfectly the glory 80's Hair Metal Sunstrip Scene of L.A. with a strong dose of sleaze Hard Rock but with some AOR-ish pinches as well. And that means big and loud guitars, clever hooks and choruses and most of all attitude!

WHITESNAKE 'S NEW GUITARIST ..........Joel Hoekstra !!!!!

And here is what David Coverdale stated about the new Whitesnake member :

"Ladies & Gentlemen...Boys & Girls...Your Attention, Please...
One of the first, if not the first, guitarists to put his name forward after hearing that Doug Aldrich had left the band, was an exceptionally talented musician whom we had met briefly last year when his band opened for Whitesnake in Arizona.
Everyone was very impressed by him, not only for his ability to play amazing guitar, but, also, his very agreeable personality & he was definitely foremost in our minds when we began to search for Doug’s replacement in Whitesnake.
We jammed together & were mutually impressed enough to ask him to join Whitesnake on the spot. This was May 30th. 2014.
Joel is currently fulfilling his remaining tour dates with Night Ranger.
We sincerely thank you all for your patience & understanding...& so, without further ado, we ask you to welcome, as we have done, our exceptionally gifted new Snake Brother...
JOEL HOEKSTRA...Guitarist Extraordinaire" ~David Coverdale

Argonauta Records signs THEE MALDOROR KOLLECTIVE

ARGONAUTA Records is proud to announce the signing of the progressive avant-garde masters THEE MALDOROR KOLLECTIVE. The band is actually the ongoing collaborative project involving members of the ritual drone doom outfit SHABDA and a very close bunch of talented musicians that led to a over 15 years activity: started as a progressive avant-garde extreme metal phenomenon, Thee Maldoror Kollective evolved into a multi-dimensional experience. The new album “Knownothingism” is the 9th full length of the band and a massive step into their genre-melting extravaganza. Lyrically inspired by the Yin hemisphere of universal energy, the album features the charming vocals of PINA KOLLARS (courtesy of Peter Gabriel's Real World Records), moving further the entire work to smartly touch of rock, psych, prog, jazz, while keeping the sound into the most adventurous fields of laptop experimentalism. To be released next fall, Knownothingism is a creative zen walk into sound and a must-have album for all music enthusiasts.

CRIMSON REIGN - "The Calling" debut cd re-release

Hailing from Phoenix, AZ, Crimson Reign is the brainchild of Titus Medina. Although Titus was new on the scene, as he had just moved to Phoenix from his home state of Colorado, it didn't take long before he could find himself at home within the local music scene and team up with some of the most talented local performers.
Crimson Reign's early line up was established in 2002, and after a few changes and adjustment eventually the band settled with Titus on lead guitar, James Eden on drums, Darren Tuchawena on bass, Steve Estrada on rhythm guitar and Donovan Bosworth on vocal duties.
