Pride Of Lions - Fearless

It was like yesterday when the “classic” homonymous debut by Pride Of Lions was released. It was in 2003 that Pride Of Lions took every melodic rock/AOR lover by surprise. Apart from the amazing tracks, the specific album introduced the amazing singer Toby Hitchcock to the masses. 13 years later Toby is one of the top singers of our time and we are all thankful to Peterik for having discovered such a “golden voice”.
 

Pride Of Lions to release new studio album “Fearless” on January 27th 2017

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated new studio album from Pride Of Lions, “Fearless” on January 27th, 2017.

When Frontiers released Pride Of Lions’ groundbreaking first album, “Pride of Lions”, in 2003, many people asked, “Is this one of those project bands that do one or two albums and then disappear - or a real band with staying power?”...

Cats In Space & Thunder vocalist Danny Bowes to release new single “How Does It Feel” on September 20th 2016

Cats In Space, are set to release a brand new single September 20th 2016 to coincide with their first UK tour this September. Dubbed the ‘Out of this World’ tour with fellow retro rockers Space Elevator, the band's new single is set to be something quite sensational to tie in with what looks set to be a stormer of a double bill.

The band is releasing their version of the classic Slade song “How Does It Feel” on 7" vinyl only complete with picture sleeve, and available in both red and white vinyl.

Magnum - Sacred Blood, Divine Lies

Like an old friend Magnum returns once more for their 19th (?) album. Having been at it, since even before most of us were born, these Brits are synonymous with quality hard rock with an extra dose of theatricality and pomp, but without being as extravagant as for instance Queen would be on occasion… but still a band of similar caliber.
 

Jono signs with Frontiers Music Srl

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of one of the hottest new bands in the European Melodic Rock scene, from Sweden: Jono!

The band started as a solo project of singer Johan Norrby (hence the moniker “JoNo”), who debuted with an independently released record in 2006. That was the starting point of the band who, since then, has released two very well received albums: “Requiem” (2013) and “Silence” (2015).

Cats In Space


Cats In Space, that’s a quite bizarre moniker, how on earth did you come up with that?
 
G: I named us after my poor departed cat ‘TC’, who passed away when we started the album... plus I wanted a name that people would either love or hate, but definitely remember... (“Marmite” as i call it!) and anyway, every band name sounds rubbish until they become famous… think Def Leppard, Led Zeppelin, Queen?
 
 

Cats In Space - Too Many Gods

Cats In Space are an interesting proposition I must admit. They’re a 70s inspired rock band that has great scope and almost enough talent to pull of that impressive melodic hard rock they are attempting to do. Think, ELO and Cheap Trick with sprinkles of Queen and 10cc… many of the band members have previously worked with such acts as: The Sweet, Asia, T’Pau, Ian Gillan Band, Mike Oldfield, Airrace & Arena to name a few, so their musicianship and performances are second to none…

Trixter - Human Era

Trixter, arrived towards the tail end of the 80s, even though they had been going on since quite early in the decade their debut sold gold but their sophomore failed to match the success as grunge was on the rise at the time so they were dropped by MCA and following an EP they disbanded soon thereafter. They only did reform about a decade later, after the grunge fad had died away, pretty much not showing any significant changes both in their membership and overall direction. It’s still the same party rock/hair metal with sufficient chops and good songwriting that the band has been known for and maybe the guys are a little older but they are none the wiser to go and change something that worked back in the day.
