S91 signs worldwide deal with Rockshots Records

Italy’s power/prog metal band S91 ink a worldwide record deal with Rockshots Records for the release of their sophomore album coming out in early 2019.

Their debut album “Behold the Mankind” was released in 2016, and was a concept album about human history in a Christian approach. S91’s style is in the wake of a coordinated progressive metal with symphonic influences, led by the warm and strong voice of Maria Londino standing above.

Stryper - God Damn Evil

Honestly now, who among us hasn’t poked a little fun at Stryper’s brand of Christian themed borderline heavy metal at one point or another in our lives? Seeing as I’m accountable for more than my fair share of jibes at their expense, I’m thrilled to announce the holy rolling L.A. rockers from days of yore have risen to the challenge and launched yet another thunderbolt of a release today, comprised of eleven solid tracks which vary between poignantly soulful hard rock crooners and more metallic foot stomping crunchers, while stoically keeping their signature religious bloviating in check.
 

Random Eyes - Grieve No More

Peeking through the misty power metal veil in a most anodyne and banal fashion is Jyväskylä, Finland’s Random Eyes (or Randomize, whichever is more conducive) with its fourth full-length since its 1999 inception, “Grieve No More”, released earlier this year under Rock n’ Growl (purr?) records.

Sweet & Lynch - Unified

The union of Sweet and Lynch produced quite an interesting album a couple of years ago. It was interesting to see what the coupling of those two capable people could produce, since both are good musicians and have between them a wealth of credits on some pretty classic tracks. The melody of Dokken and Lynch Mob was combined with the edgier vocal style of Stryper, but also Sweet’s solo material poppier sensibilities, quite nicely. Bassist James Lomenzo (ex-Megadeth, White Lion, Black Label Society) and drummer Brian Tichy (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake) make up the numbers, so no change there, which I suppose is a good thing. Why change, a working chemistry, a winning team etc…
