REVIEW : STRYPER --- GOD DAMN EVIL (FRONTIERS MUSIC, 2018)

Strange things happened with the release of STRYPER's newest effort "God Damn Evil". The well-known chain store Walmart refused to place Stryper's new opus 'cause of its blasphemy title!!! I personally don't get all those 'noize' around this title. The U.S. Christian community, including some White Metal bands in, consider "God Damn Evil" a not proper title for a Christian metal band (????).

NULL'O'ZERO Unveil 'Instructions To Dominate' Album Details

Greek heavy metal band, Null'o'zero, have announced the release of their new album 'Instructions To Dominate' on July 13, via ROAR! Rock Of Angles Records. 'Instructions To Dominate' is the 2nd Official album by Null'o'zero, an album that was written in a very difficult period for the band. This is the reason why the album is so aggressive and driven by emotion - anger, grief, pain, frustration - but it also gives hope to take courage to stand with our heads held high.

Hungryheart present the ten years anniversary deluxe edition of their 2008 debut album

Hungryheart set to release Ten Years anniversary deluxe edition of their 2008 debut album on June 1st.
 
"Simply "HungryHeart"... this is how the band led by the duo Mario Percudani (guitars and vocals) / Josh Zighetti (vocals) presented itself to the world for the first time on June 1st, 2008. A heart-shaped black and white cactus on a black background! The bright shocking pink Hungryheart caption, now the band's trademark, clearly stands out. This cover introduced the melodic rock fans of the time, reluctant until then to believe in the Italian potential in this genre, to a whirlwind of emotions and notes evoking dreams of freedom, friendship and love in the most classic USA-style melodic rock.

FREE FROM SIN to release „II“ on July 20th, 2018 on Pride & Joy Music!

Free From Sin’s self-titled debut album was released in mid 2015.  After good sales, reviews and press feedback, the Swedish based group is now back with a vengeance and with a new record called “Free From Sin II”!

The band has added new band members to the line-up which resulted in a much darker & heavier sounding release in comparison to the first one. Free From Sin is again going back to basics, with a classical 5 piece line-up, with hammond organ, guitar, bass & drums together with aggressively vivid vocals and now is featuring Per Englund (ex-Blacksmith, vocals), Patrik Lämborg (guitars), Fredrik Strömberg (keyboards), Ulf Kronsell (bass) and Paul Ekdahl (drums).

REVIEW : TNT --- XIII (Frontiers Music s.r.l., June 2018)

The truth is that the band of TNT has, and will always have, a special place in my heart. It is one of those bands that I grew up with. Their songs will always be a part of my life. Who can forget tunes such as "Intuition", "10.000 Lovers In One", "Listen To Your Heart", "Downhill Racer" and many more? Albums such as "Tell No Tales", "Intuition" and "Knights Of The New Thunder" are gems, period!

REVIEW : Dare --- Out Of The Silence II (Legend Records, 2018)

Dare's debut album "Out Of The Silence", in 1988, was and still remains one of the classics of this scene. Nowadays, Dare celebrate their 30th Anniversary with a Special Edition, re-release of this classic gem. Out Of The Silence II has been completely re-recorded and in Wharton’s own words “has taken on a new life”.

RYAN ROXIE – ALICE COOPER’S LONG-TIME LEAD GUITARIST – RELEASES NEW LYRIC VIDEO & SINGLE “TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A.”

RYAN ROXIE (Alice Cooper guitarist) have released a new lyric video & single for 'To Live And Die In L.A.'. The song is taken from from his upcoming solo album, “Imagine Your Reality” with physical release date May 25th via via Lenata Records (Digital), Cargo Records UK (Compact Disc) and Bellyache Records (Vinyl). The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/61ezD8zCC8M

“…The straight ahead riff-rock guitar part, the sardonic lyrics and over-all angst were originally concocted years ago, but I could never get  the balance of sarcasm & anger just right…until now. This song was actually very therapeutic in helping me let go and make certain situations in my life ‘water under the bridge’…And in the end, ‘To Live & Die in L.A. was too good a phrase to just be a cop/action/suspense movie…” – Ryan Roxie
