Blaze Bayley - The Redemption of William Black (Infinite Entanglement Part III)

These facsimile sci-fi epics parts of the grand saga, that the former Iron Maiden frontman has conceived, seem to be arriving every year, almost at an alarming rate with concern to their quality. It’s a given that the production quality cannot these days hold a candle to the Maiden or even the first couple of solos, and the covers are increasingly dodgier...

Lione - Conti - Lione - Conti

Those guys at Frontiers Records seem to have a fun time, playing fantasy league football, only with musicians. They sort of couple vocalists that they work or can “get ahold of” and flesh out these projects with some “standard” contributors and instrumentalists they have on hand.

Animal Drive - Bite!

TSO are both a proving ground and a bit of a cancer for rock and metal. Basically a moneymaking “Christmas” show, with tracks that either belong to the band that’s behind it (Savatage) or are in the public domain, so no $ have to be paid and they’re well known.
