LAST UNION Feat. (Former) Members Of Symphony X, Dream Theater, Masterplan, Helloween Sign With ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records

Italian progressive metal band, LAST UNION feat. Mike LePond (Symphony X) on bass, Uli Kusch (ex-Helloween, ex-Masterplan) on drums and as guest James LaBrie (Dream Theater) on vocals, have signed a multi-album deal with ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.
LAST UNION just finished the work on their debut album, which was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren, best known for his work with Arch Enemy, Symphony X, Devin Townsend, Angra and Opeth to name a few.
Strong and positive reactions to their music spurred Scarpeccio and Tiberi on to take the first of many bold steps. The first was to invite drummer Uli Kusch (ex-Helloween, ex-Masterplan) to join the fold, who expressed interest in joining the band as a full member rather than just a touring drummer after hearing the music. A similar scenario played out with Symphony X bassist Mike LePond and LAST UNION was officially born.

REVIEW : Bonfire --- Legends (AFM Records, 19 October 2018)

Without any doubt good music can travel you away, it has the power to bring back memories and it can make you feel happy, sad, powerful, or even relaxed. It can make your body physically want to move and it speaks right into the listener’s soul. But, most of all, good music is timeless, whatever are the trends or styles.

REVIEW : CREYE --- CREYE (Frontiers Music s.r.l., October 2018)

In late 2016, a band with the name of CREYE rocked my world, and I think that rocked the world of every serious melodic rock fan out there, with their debut opus. These Swedes debuted with an EP record which was entitled "Never Too Late". That was, and still remains, a huge debut that contained some great and timeless melodic rock songs. Of course, "Never Too Late", gained some excellent reviews from both fans and music press and made me anxious of what's to follow up next from these guys.
