REVIEW : HARDLINE / Human Nature (2016)

Hardline is one of these bands that achieved to build a strong reputation around their name with only one album. "Double Eclipse", in 1992, was and still is one of my all time favorite - and I think it is as well as for everyone who loves that kinda of sound - Hard Rock records.

REVIEW : TYKETTO / Reach (2016)

For someone that grew up with the glorious 80's, early 90's, classic melodic hard rock sound, when you hear the word Tyketto, one song comes in mind; "Forever Young"!!! The song that becomes a myth for every crazy hard rocker back then was the ticket for Tyketto to become huge!!! But 'cause of the so-called Grunge revolution Tyketto, and many others, did get the popularity that they deserve.

REVIEW : Eden's Curse / Cardinal (2016)

Eden's Curse is one of my personal bands. Each album of these Melodic Metal/Hard Rock is special to me. Big hooks and choruses, amazing and inspired riffs and solos, soaring vocals and a tight as hell musicianship are some things that characterize Eden's Curse music.

Frontiers Music srl is very pleased to announce the launch of a new musical partnership between singer Anette Olzon and producer/songwriter/guitar player Jani Liimatainen for a new studio album, which will see release on the label in 2017.

Frontiers Music srl is very pleased to announce the launch of a new musical partnership between singer Anette Olzon and producer/songwriter/guitar player Jani Liimatainen for a new studio album, which will see release on the label in 2017.

Anette is mostly known for being the immaculate voice on hit albums from Nightwish such as “Dark Passion Play” and “Imaginareum”. Jani has recently been busy in Cain's Offering alongside Stratovarius singer Timo Kotipelto, but left a deep mark on the minds of all power metal fans thanks to his time in Sonata Arctica. They are now working together on a record which promises to be a huge statement in the European metal scene for years to come!

Jani says, "I have always been a big fan of Anette's voice and when the opportunity to work with her arose, writing and producing an album, it was something I just couldn't say no to! It has been a blast working on the songs already and I can't wait for the final result, this will be epic! The songs will be extremely melodic and to the point. My goal has been to write catchy songs with hooks that will haunt your dreams, and I think it's pretty much "mission accomplished". Stay tuned for something special!"

Anette adds, “I am so looking forward to sing on an album with Jani and to finally work with Frontiers. I believe it will be a perfect match and I am really happy that Jani and Frontiers asked me to do this with them!”

Frontiers President Serafino Perugino concludes, “I originally envisioned the musical alliance between those two musical giants and the fact that they liked the concept proposed makes me incredibly proud! Working with two high class musicians like Jani and Anette is a true honor and we will do our complete best to please them and to release a record which will make all the melodic and power metal fans very happy!”

Frontiers looks forward to releasing this record in mid to late 2017!
