I believe that it’s crucial for every band to evolve through the course of time instead of being trapped inside its own ego & keep repeating itself on and on. Obviously, the fans are skeptical when they are about to experience something that they are not aware of… but then again here comes the everlasting question… who does a band make music for? Do they do so to satisfy their fans or express their creativity, huh?
Something weird is going on here… as part of their renewal, Scarlet & Bakerteam records have made a new opening to different rock music styles & signed with a few bands that are keen on the 90s grunge & alternative rock music. Rhyme are coming from Italy and they were formed in 2008. “The Seed and the Sewage” is the band’s sophomore release.
Solarmonkeys band formed in November of 2011 in Athens Greece. Outset of their interest was to work exclusively on their own material and to release their music through all available ways.
Their compositions are built upon rock forms and their sound flirts with this of the scene of Seattle (the period of the eruption of grunge) mixed with a few computer keys and electronic elements. In any case their love for bands like Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Faith No More and Tool are easily visible.
Taking a break from his main band, The Flower Kings, Hasse Fröberg (vocals, guitar), immediately formed a band (not a project… cuz he is an old-fashioned guy as he said) in 2009 and released their debut album, “Future Past”, in 2010.
Lightyear Entertainment, in association with Trumpet Swan Records, is proud to announce the release of the brilliant new studio album from Sophie B. Hawkins, entitled "The Crossing".
The album will be released through EMI in the U.S. and Canada on June 19, 2012. European distribution will be through in-akustik, who will release the album simultaneously.
This Swedish rock quintet consists of members that have been in the scene for several years and a former football player! Specifically, Casablanca are: Anders Ljung (Space Age Baby Jane) on vocals, Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper and Electric Angels) on guitars, Erik Stenemo (Melody Club) on guitars, Mats Rubarth (former Swedish national team football player) on bass and Josephine Forsman (Sahara Hotnights) on drums. They also performed along with the soprano Malena Ernman (she took part at Melodifestivalen 2009 with this song) at Melodifestivalen 2010 (Swedish Eurovision Festival) with the song “La Voix”. The rock cover they did was very good but I can’t tell why they didn’t include this song on the album as a bonus track at least.
Dynazty, for those who are aware of the band, come from Sweden and they were formed in 2008. They have released two albums till now, “Bring The Thunder” in 2009 and “Knock You Down” in 2011… and “Sultans Of Sin” is their third new work. Dynazty are true to the hard rock 80s legacy, bowing to bands like: Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Europe, Dokken, Skid Row, XYZ, Tuff, Treat and so on.
Blending the raw and unfiltered aggression of punk with the technical skills and forward-thinking songwriting of thrash metal, IRONCHRIST should have become a household name. Although they were only around for a few years in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, the Maryland band’s musical output is among the most cherished by connoisseurs of the thrash and crossover eras. Outside of Voivod and late period DBC, few groups were playing the post-apocalyptic thrash thing as potently as IRONCHRIST did.
Kenny, Britt and the Blackboard boys have teamed up with Demon Doll Records to bring you a blistering 20 song; 78 minute masterpiece entitled "THE GREAT HOLLYWOOD HUSTLE"! We went as deep into the Hollywood vaults as we could go to bring you some serious Blackboard Jungle rarities.
"We have never before released material, we have out of print material, we have songs from the "America Now" split release, we have B-Sides, we have Singles - you name it… it’s on this new CD"... says the band.
