REVIEW : H.E.A.T. --- Into The Great Unknown (2017)

So the time has come for this great band to release its brand new opus entitled "Into The Great Unknown". H.E.A.T. released four great, and already classics, records so far plus an amazing live one. With Kenny Leckremo, the first two albums were both pure melodic rock stuff with class and quality. Due to some personal reasons, Kenny left and Erik Gronwall took the place behind the mic.

MORITZ 'About Time Too' Out in July/August

UK AOR/Classic Rock band, MORITZ, have announced the release of their long-awaited follow-up 'About Time Too' to the successful 'SOS' album. The album consists of 13 new songs, including two instrumental intros, due for release on 31 July 2017 via Shadows of a Dream and 25 August, 2017 via Cargo Records. A video teaser can be viewed here:
The album was recorded over the last four years at a number of studios. It was produced by MORITZ and mixed and mastered by MORITZ bass/keyboard player Ian Edwards.
It is now 30 years since the band’s first release, the now highly collectable 12” vinyl Shadows of a Dream EP. To celebrate this MORITZ have resurrected the Shadows of a Dream label for the new album.



It’s an incredible accomplishment when a rock band has been successful enough to reach the 25-year mark since the release of their first album.

And this year, raunchy southern rockers Jackyl have accomplished this feat, and are celebrating with an appropriately-titled compilation, ’25,’ which drops July 28 via Mighty Loud Records.

The 18-track set (which can be preordered via the band’s official site, features such Jackyl radio hits as “Down on Me,” “The Lumberjack,” “Push Comes to Shove,” and “Favorite Sin,” as well as two previously unreleased tracks - a live rendition of “Redneck Punk,” as well as a cover of Black Oak Arkansas’ “Hot and Nasty.”

The Poodles - Love Is Gone, new single!

The Poodles are back with the brand new single "Love is Gone"! The song is written by David Guetta and it is the first release from the coming album "Prisma", which is due to be released in January 2018.
The Poodles have always refused to conform to expectation and this time is no exeption. "We took on the challenge to do our version of a song from a different genre, one that is very different from our own", says lead singer Jakob Samuel.
The choice to do a heavy metal version of "Love is Gone" stems from the simple fact that everyone liked the song. "It has a strong hook and a driving riff, which are ingredients that make for a good song regardless of genre", Henrik adds.

STARSICK SYSTEM, Listen to "You Know My Name" (Chris Cornell cover) 

Recorded before the passing of Soundgarden singer, You Know My Name is the last track of Lies, Hopes & Other Stories, the new record by Starsick System.

The song is a tribute to the great movie 007 Casino Royale and its soundtrack, but now also to the memory of Chris Cornell.

"What's really cool is that when we picked up this song, it was only for fun (that comes with Chris Cornell’s James Bond themed tune “You Know My Name” from 2006’s Casino Royale and in our early shows we started with the Bond Opening Theme). We played it in some gigs and we had a good feeling with the crowd and with the song itself.

So the decision was very natural for us: this song is loved by so many people, including us, that we really wanted to pay a real tribute to it and of course now is our personal tribute to Cornell.
