SUPERSEED have released their second official video and radio single for the song 'Turn The Screw"!


Bristol UK based rockers SUPERSEED have released their second official video and radio single for the song “Turn The Screw”! The track is taken from their self-titled debut album which will be released on February 8th, 2019 through ROAR! Rock of Angels Records. The artist’s first offering will be available as Digipack CD, Gatefold Orange Double Vinyl (Limited to 300 copies) and digital streaming & download format.
 
Film Director Katy says: “Having worked with the guys on the ‘My Time Is Now’ video I was really excited to get started on this one but I knew time was incredibly tight so I had to work smart. ‘Turn The Screw’ struck me as something of a fight song for Superseed. It had this real feeling of grit and determination; so paying homage to a favorite rock song of mine which has a similar feel, I set about creating this punchy, mind warping, kaleidoscopic look. To actually shoot it was really quick, probably an hour in total once the lighting was all set. The magic really started in the edit with layers and layers of color blocking, blended with the band playing. It became a literal collage, stealing colors from the album artwork and grainy black and white from the first video. I wanted it to be like a visual assault to match the aggression of the song.”

REVIEW : Herman Frank ---- Fight The Fear (AFM Records Release: 8 February 2019)

Herman Frank is a true metal soldier! From his early days with metal legends of ACCEPT to his VICTORY days but, also, with his solo works, Herman Frank stays true to his metal roots. With the first three albums "Loyal To None", "Right In The Guts" and "The Devils Ride Out", Frank delivered some excellent and metal-to-the-bone stuff, no doubt bout that.

REVIEW : JETBOY --- Born To Fly (Frontiers Music s.r.l. RELEASE DATE : 25 January 2019)

JetBoy released their great debut, "Feel The Shake", back in 1988 and it was (and still remains...) a true gem of an album. "Feel The Shake" contained some really ass-kickin' hard rock tunes and left a promise for even bigger things from this band in the future to come. A couple years later, JetBoy released "Damned Nation" (through MCA Records) and it was yet another great sample of pure hair metal/pop metal stuff.

REVIEW : KANE ROBERTS --- The New Normal (Frontiers Music s.r.l., Release Date: 25 January 2019)


Kane Roberts is well-known from his 'Rambo' looking when he was the guitar man for rock icon Alice Cooper. His M-80 shaped guitar was yet another trademark for Kane Roberts. Except his amazing abilities as a guitar player, Roberts was also a very good singer. As a solo artist, Kane Roberts released a classic debut but, for me, the second one (Saints And Sinners) is what I call a gem of an album.
