::: IMPERIUM strike back with “Heaven Or Hell” on October 30th, 2020 :::


Mika has been playing drums and percussion in various bands since 1981 and doing it in all genres from jazz to metal. Furthermore, he has composed songs for different genres and this legacy can be heard in the IMPERIUM songs right away. The music is Melodic Rock / AOR and it has a big dose of 80’s feel and sounds in it.

The project started in 2012 when Mika composed a new song for the new STRIKE album “We’re Back” and realized that there were more songs in him that needed to be released. 2016 the debut album “Dreamhunter“ was released by AOR Heaven and the follow-up “Beyond The Stars“ came out in 2018.

In this project Mika writes all the songs and lyrics, and plays all the drums, bass, keyboards and sings backing vocals, too.

All the lead vocals are sung and guitars are played by various extremely talented musicians from the rock/metal scene all over the world which this time include Robban Ernlund (Treat), Markku Kuikka (Agonizer, Kenziner, The Ragged Saints), Stefano Lionetti (Lionville), Mikey K Nilsson (Sapphire Eyes), Erkka Korhonen (Dark Sarah, Urban Tale)and Robbie LaBlanc (Blanc Faces)

Also the album’s post-production is made by top pros. The album is mixed by Erkka Korhonen (Dark Sarah, Urban Tale, Northern Kings, Ari Koivunen, Raskasta Joulua) and mastered by the legendary Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Children of bodom, Stratovarius, HIM etc.). The album was produced and mostly recorded during 2019-2020 by Mika himself at his Groovehouse Studio in Vantaa, Finland.

"Road, My Life" is the brand new studio single by Italian rock band, Diamante.


The song represents their first official release in English, performed by the new singer Matteo Metelli, who joined the line-up three years ago. Matteo perfectly integrated with his fellow bandmates thanks to a long list of live performances, where Diamante proposed shows focused on 70’s hard rock covers. Six years after their latest full-length album, "Ad Vitam Reditus", the Brescia-based group felt the need to create again something original. Penned in collaboration with Oscar Burato and Letizia Maestrello from Monday Shock, "Road, My Life" hinges on a new beginning: leaving everything behind, trying to treasure our own mistakes, and hoping that the next opportunity will mark a turning point. The sound is rich, colorful, and deeper than before, but still influenced by their 70’s-infused background.

The single, available on all digital platforms, was produced by Oscar Burato at Sonic Bang Studio in Isorella (Brescia, Italy); the video was shot by Moviedel Productions.

Swiss hard rock band, ME AND THE REST, have released their new music video for the song ‘Clockmaster‘, it’s the fourth single taken from the forthcoming album “We Are Bulletproof” due out beginning of 2021 via RockAvenger.

REVIEW : PERFECT PLAN, Time For A Miracle (Frontiers Music s.r.l., Release Date: Sept. 2020)

Perfect Plan's newest effort, "Time For A Miracle" is for me one of the most anticipated releases of 2020. The band's debut opus, "All Rise", a couple of years back ended at the first position in Top Heavy Paradise's Releases of 2018. An album that till now is on a daily basis in my cd player. I just love it!!
