REVIEW : JOHN TAGLIERI / True Believer (EP, 2015)

Singer/songwriter John Taglieri is unleashing his brand new EP which is entitled "True Believer". Taglieri states about his new work : “I’ve always been the kind of writer who writes anything that comes to me and I love to explore new places," tells Taglieri. "I never wanted to be known as a one trick pony… so to speak. I went where my musical journey wanted to take me and that had some varied styles in it. Along the way the hard rock element was always there, but this Ep brings it all the way back with a vengeance!!"


The heavy yet technically challenging metal of Martyrd will soon be on display once more, with the arrival of a new album, 'Endless,' and a performance on the star-studded Motorhead's Motorboat Cruise.

In a statement, the New York-based band (which is comprised of members Aaron Pollard - Vocals, Michael Andreas - Guitar, Mike Kitsos - Guitar, Brian Nichols - Bass, and Randall Lee - Drums) explained:
"We loved what we did with 'The Mortal Coil,' but we wouldn't want to keep making the same album again. All of us have grown as musicians and humans, and its been a natural progression taking us from that era to this new territory we're exploring with 'Endless.' This time around, we're diving right into the deep end, the album is darker and heavier than anything we've ever done before - just how we like it! It's still Martyrd, but taken to the tenth degree."

REVIEW : JOEL HOEKSTRA’S 13 / Dying To Live (2015)

Joel Hoekstra's 13 is a side project formed by current Whitesnake guitarist Joel Hoekstra, who is also well-known for his work with Night Ranger, Trans Siberian Orchestra and the show Rock of Ages.

The Silent Rage Announce Guests For Upcoming Album

"Dear Friends,

Through our previous newsletters, we informed you that some really special guests were going to participate on our upcoming album “The Deadliest Scourge”. The time to unveil them has come! Full of pride and honor, we present them to you.

Apollo Papathanasio (Spiritual Beggars, ex-Firewind) – He’s a singer with a voice that we all love. We asked Apollo to join our very own Steve Venardo on the track “Sin Of A Pilgrim” and he accepted immediately. The outcome is really breathtaking!

Yossi Sassi (Solo, ex-Orphaned Land) – He’s without a doubt the godfather of the “oriental metal” genre. Yossi has given an Eastern touch to our ballad “Shadow Spirit”, by performing some mind travelling melodies on the Oud.

Vladimir Reshetnikov (Arkona, Rossomahaar) – Alongside the magnificent Oud melodies of Yossi, Vladimir also performed on “Shadow Spirit”. The melodies on the Galician bagpipe (Gaita), and traditional Ukrainian flute called Sopilka are going to blow your mind.

Theophilos Kritikos (Feel) - He’s the mastermind behind the opening intro track of the album, under the title “Signal Of War”. Theophilos created the perfect opening of our upcoming album.

You can also check a small teaser of our guests in the following link:

The band has also scheduled a listening session for the local Greek media this Saturday (26/09). After that, we’ll be officially in search of a record label.

All the best,

The Silent Rage"


After 25 years, seven highly critically acclaimed albums, charting and international touring, M.ILL.ION founder, main songwriter and bass guitarist B.J Laneby decided to put the band to rest. Now he’s back with a super strong, exciting new band called MAJOR INSTINCT from Gothenburg, Sweden! Handpicked musicians of the greatest calibre and a BAND, not a project! We’re talking classic hard rock with inspiration from the 70’s and early 80’s, huge melodies and real instruments used, autotuners not!
