Melodic hard rockers OUTLOUD release new album on ROAR!

The band begins a new chapter of their career with their fourth full-length album, “Virtual Hero Society” (aka VHS) on ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records. This is their first full-length since 2014’s “Let’s Get Serious”, and their second release on ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records, the first being Destination: Overdrive - The Best of Outloud, which featured their popular cover of the Pointer Sisters' hit “I’m So Excited”, in 2015. This time, with the album title, theme and title track and first single, "Virtual Heroes", OUTLOUD abandons their general "playful" approach and goes toward deeper subject matter, tackling what could be called the "double-edged sword" of technology in today's society, as evidenced by the album cover.

REVIEW : Free From Sin --- II (Pride & Joy Music, July 2018)

Free From Sin is a band that made its appearance back in 2015 with its debut album entitled "Free From Sin". The feedback was positive and so this Swedish band decided to record another opus. So, nowadays and after some line-up changes, the band strikes back with album number two with the title "II".

Free From Sin consists of  Per Englund (ex-Blacksmith, vocals), Patrik Lämborg (guitars), Fredrik Strömberg (keyboards), Ulf Kronsell (bass) and Paul Ekdahl (drums) and its musical style is basically melodic hard rock/metal that refers to bands such as Rainbow, Deep Purple, Judas Priest and DIO.

The first highlight of the new album comes with the classic "Faces Of Christ". It's a very Rainbow-esque track (just check the guitar work and the vocals) but that's not a problem at all 'cause it's a really solid song all the way. More classic hard rock/metal stuff comes with "Mr. Blakk", "God Made Me Hate", "Break And Burn" (in which the Priest influences are more than obvious) and the straight forward "Borderline" (which is among my faves here). "Deceiver" is yet another fast-paced and very interesting tune out of the new album.

If you love bands such as Deep Purple, Rainbow, Judas Priest or even DIO, then you have to check out Free From Sin's newest effort. It's a damn solid record that includes all the magic of the above mentioned bands. 

Rating : 8/10

REVIEW : Taste --- Moral Decay (AOR Heaven, August 2018)

Now, this is yet another new release that I was looking forward to listening to. Swedish melodic rock band of Taste is releasing its brand new opus with the title "Moral Decay" through AOR Heaven this August. Taste was born in 2008 when the two brothers, Christoffer and Felix Borg decided to make music together. The vision was to make classic n' 80's AOR music, inspired by bands such as FM, Giant and Strangeways

German label AOR Heaven has extended their collaboration with Swedish Melodic Rock group TASTE who will release their second album “Moral Decay” on August 31st, 2018!

TASTE was born on the day before New Year’s Eve 2009, when the two brothers, Christoffer and Felix Borg decided to make music together. The vision was to make classic 80s AOR, greatly inspired by FM, Giant and Strangeways.

Signing a deal with AOR Heaven, the self-titled album was released January 2013. The album received a lot of good reviews for their classic keyboard driven sound. After doing a few live performances the brothers joined ART NATION. During this time, Christoffer started study to become a music producer and they decided to leave TASTE aside until there was enough time to do it properly.

After a four year hiatus the brothers finally found the time to work together again. With a brand new single, ”We Are Back ”, released on their own, they signed a new deal with AOR Heaven, and in August 2018 they’ll release their highly anticipated second album, ” Moral Decay ”.
