Rockin’ Summer Days…

GR logoDuring the summer when most people are relaxing and some others are trying to do so in every way they can, there are always some minimal decisions that bother us when it comes to Summer Festivals and new releases that we should listen to and buy. How great it would be if things were like that for the most time, but let’s enjoy these moments as long as we can, cuz unfortunately the stressful times tend to take the lion’s share in our lives.
 
Well, it’s true that numerous new albums have been released during the summer and not only. It’s to wonder how all these bands and artists are willing to record new music and release it when the fans are not buying any hard copies (mostly digital) or any music in general. Some say that they do so in order to find a way to tour and make money in that way. Well, that ain’t a lie but it’s not 100% true. Bands and artists can make money by touring heavily all the year but the money they make by releasing new album are truly poor. Of course, the “big advertised bands” that sell by hook or by crook are always the “exception” in such talking.
 
I’d love to see more and more bands and artists releasing new music and touring around the world, but I’d also love to see the “old days”, when the fans used to buy albums and attend live shows like crazy, coming back at some point. After all, rock and metal music is a two-way relationship between the bands/artists and the fans and none can do without the other. I do know that the times are hard but let’s hope things get better soon and we all should help on that as well…
 
PS1: Summer is probably the best time of the year, but damn it lasts so little… when you start getting used to it, then it suddenly ends! Thus, let’s enjoy all those summer days we have ahead of us!
 
PS2: The Model Spotlight for this month is the hot & sexy Lola Versus. Check out her interview and pics here.
 
PS3: This month’s editorial is dedicated to the American guitarist Pete Rossi, who had been a member of Reverence and Sanxtion. Regrettably, Pete passed away a few months ago, at the age of 47. He was a quite young & talented guitarist and he had so much to give to heavy metal music. His latest work was “Gods of War” (2015) with Reverence. May He Rest In Peace…
