FICTION SYXX Feat. Former Members Of BILOXI, XYZ, KING KOBRA, Release New Single And Music Video 'Whispers In The Dark'

US progressive hard rock band, FICTION SYXX, have relesead a new single and music video for 'Whispers In The Dark'. The track is taken from the forthcoming album ‘Ghost of my Fathers Past’, which will be released later in 2021 via Melodic Rock Records. The YouTube video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/A1zd5DPcxyk

'Whispers In The Dark' is about the thin line between this world and the spiritual domain.

The upcoming album ‘Ghost of my Fathers Past’ follows their 2 acclaimed prior releases ‘Tall Dark Secrets’, released in 2017 & 'The Alternate Me' released in 2019.

FICTION SYXX mixes progressive hard rock with a nuance of melodic rock. The first release from this project was a way to bring a talented core of seasoned musicians together to create a sound and an experience that is different from the rest.

The core of the band has stayed constant, other than one change - Larry Hart (King Kobra/Montrose) on bass guitar took over for Tony Franklin who played bass on the debut release. Prepare for songs with a story to tell, a mix of melody, harmony, soaring slide, and at times SHRED!

REVIEW : INGLORIOUS, We Will Ride (Frontiers Music s.r.l., Release: 12 February 2021)

The Brit classic heavy rock band of INGLORIOUS returns back in business with its brand new and already fourth full-length release, "We Will Ride" through Frontiers Music this February.

Escape Music is delighted to announce the release date for vocalist Robbie LaBlanc with his brand new solo album titled “Double Trouble” !!!.

Robbie (and his brother Brian) have been singing and playing instruments since age 3. Robbie’s first influences (besides his dad always singing and playing the guitar) were Trini Lopez and the Beatles. Shortly after, the influences were bands like Creedence Clearwater Revival and Grand Funk Railroad.

Robbie’s first break in the music business came when he met Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer Felix Cavaliere of The Rascals in CT. Felix produced the album “FURY” with a slew of great musicians in a CT studio.

After the album disappeared from the charts, Robbie signed with a management company that had Michael Bolton ties and the duo recorded at least four albums worth of material at Michael’s CT studio. It still failed to generate a record deal. When that deal ended about three years later Robbie dropped a DAT tape in Arif Mardin’s mailbox in CT. Arif called the next day and a deal with Atlantic Records was on the table. One hurdle to go, a showcase with the new Atlantic regime. Again, it proved disappointing, no deal.

At the suggestion of a friend, a CD was sent to Frontiers Records and the two “Blanc Faces” records were done in 2005 and 2009.

Robbie then signed on to sing with the “Find Me” project which has received some great reviews on all three releases.

REVIEW : RONNIE ATKINS, One Shot (Frontiers Music s.r.l. Release: 12 March 2021)

Ronnie Atkins is no other than the voice of the legendary melodic metal/hard rock band of PRETTY MAIDS. With the Maids, Mr. Atkins has released some incredible and classic albums. His voice is without any doubt unique; rough and smooth at the same time Ronnie Atkins can sing just everything with the same passion, period!

WICKED SMILE release Killer At Large

Australian heavy rock band Wicked Smile have roared into 2021 with a brand new single titled ‘Killer At Large’. This follows on from their 2020 debut ep titled ‘Delirium’ to very favourable reviews.

The new single is again produced by Paul Laine (The Defiants) and mastered by Bruno Ravel(The Defiants/Danger Danger).

Guitarist Stevie Janevski goes on to say, “last year was all about giving the world a ‘taste’ of what we’re about. We’re a five piece kick ass heavy rock band and I think we made our presence known with the release of our Delirium ep”.

The new single ‘Killer At Large’ will no doubt be another talking point with its bombastic wall of sound. Vocalist Danny states, “this is my favourite song so far. It’s heavy, yet melodic and the song fits in perfectly with what we’re about. The energy from the entire band is amazing”.
