Messiaxx - "Messiaxx" (teaser)

Οι Messiaxx δημιουργήθηκαν το 1987 στις Η.Π.Α. Διαλύθηκαν στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ενενήντα χωρίς να έχουν αφήσει κάποιο δισκογραφικό αποτύπωμα (πλην της συμμετοχής τους σε μία συλλογή). Την πρωταπριλιά του 2017 η μπάντα επανενώθηκε με δύο καινούρια μέλη καθώς οι Eric Gibson - Gary Muchmore απεβίωσαν (το 2015 και 2016 αντίστοιχα).

Φέτος κυκλοφόρησε η ομώνυμη συλλογή με όλα τα δισκογραφήματα της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας, η οποία δηλώνει ως επιρροές συγκροτήματα όπως οι: Savatage, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Fates Warning, Dream Theater, Queensryche, Crimson Glory, King Diamond, Queen, Metal Church. Η συλλογή κυκλοφόρησε τον Απρίλιο σε "πακέτο" cd + vinyl, ενώ σε σκέτο cd θα "βγει" το φθινόπωρο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «MESSIAXX hailed from Florida, USA and started their musical adventure back in 1985 from the ashes of the band NOIZ. They are mostly remembered by die hard metal fans and collectors for their killer contribution to the classic '88 heavy metal sampler "Metal Mercenaries" that featured amazing local bands of the time such as BLACKKOUT, OBLIVION and also the very first participation of ICED EARTH with the song "Dracula".

The band had a distinctive heavy / power metal sound, with thundering drums, killer vocals and amazing bass / rhythm section recording a series of classic songs throughout the second half of the 80's.

Laurent Ramadier, the publisher of SNAKEPIT magazine managed to locate all original band members and with his valuable assistance and additional precious help of original drummer Lee Gibson, we were able to put together the ULTIMATE compilation of MESSIAXX tracks, that can all be considered classic numbers!

The MESSIAXX album will be released on limited deluxe vinyl and CD featuring 20-page booklet, band photos, lyrics, interview etc, with the songs being digitally restored and remastered, leading to a total of 12 mind blowing tunes that will leave every fan of classic U.S. steel speechless.

The CD version is expected to be available by early Spring, 2018 so be prepared for a relentless sonic assault with mighty classics such as "Island of Enchantress", "Final Hour", "Raven", "Kings and Queens", "Reign Of Steel" etc. This is not just another simply good metal band. This is the kind of steel that turns music fans to heavy metal die hards! HAIL!»

Haunt - "Burst into Flame" (audios)

Οι Haunt είναι το συγκρότημα του Trevor William Church (ο κιθαρίστας και τραγουδιστής των doomesters Beastmaker). Στην κυριολεξία όμως, καθώς είναι το μόνο μέλος. Χαρακτηρίζει την μουσική του προσωπικού του σχήματος ως "mystical heavy metal". Πέρυσι κυκλοφόρησε το ep τεσσάρων τραγουδιών "Luminous Eyes", ενώ στα μέσα Αυγούστου θα "βγει" και ο πρώτος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος, ο οποίος φέρει τον τίτλο "Burst into Flame"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Shadow Kingdom Records is proud to present Haunt's highly anticipated debut album, Burst Into Flame, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Hailing from the United States, Haunt began as the work of modern renaissance man Trevor William Church. Son of Montrose / Sammy Hagar solo bassist Bill "The Electric" Church, the California native came to prominence as the vocalist/guitarist of doom-lords Beastmaker, who've released two critically acclaimed albums on Rise Above.

However, as Haunt, Church went solo and created a bewitching brew of classic, turn-of-the-'80s heavy metal, drawing deeply from the momentous NWOBHM movement. He proved just how proficient and powerful his vision is with Haunt's 2017 debut EP, Luminous Eyes, which was originally self-released but then picked up for physical release by Shadow Kingdom not long after. Fans and critics all agreed, and quickly: Haunt is heavy metal heaven, and Church's brilliance has only just begun.

With Luminous Eyes as the all-too-short appetizer, along comes Haunt's hotly anticipated debut full-length, Burst Into Flame. In between releases, Church has expanded the lineup to include fellow Beastmaker guitarist John William Tucker and the rhythm section of bassist Matthew Wilhoit and drummer Daniel Wilson.

Literally hot, Burst Into Flame explodes with an electricity and excitement that's simply impossible to ignore. From the hard-charging opening title track on down to the dramatic, climactic closer "Looking Glass," Haunt's first long-playing attack ably displays all the arsenal at their disposal.

And they make great use of it across the nine anthems comprising Burst Into Flame's tighter-than-tight 38 minutes; indeed, each of the album's nine component tracks could be a "hit" in and of itself.

Just like on Luminous Eyes, here Haunt weave luxuriously subtle hooks that take hold and entrance the listener - surely, they "Haunt" - but the emotional component on Burst Into Flame is even more pronounced, portraying a moodiness that elevates all these tracks beyond mere party fodder, grabbing hold of the listener's heartstrings and never letting go.

And yet, they're all deceptively invigorating at the same time, forever tethered to the timelessness of classic metal and hard rock. Or, simply, these are all great songs - and Burst Into Flame is simply a great album.

With Haunt now a full band and steady gigging across the country already commencing, their trajectory is onward and upward and, most likely, beyond. "No one can take me off my throne," Church sings on album's title track, and more prescient words have never been spoken: Haunt have arrived as kings. Are you ready to Burst Into Flame?»

The Dead Daisies - "Dead And Gone" (video)

Το βίντεο των Dead Daisies για το "Dead And Gone" από το album "Burn It Down"
Το συγκρότημα The Dead Daisies δημιουργήθηκε προ εξαετίας στην Αυστραλία και μπορεί κάλλιστα να χαρακτηρισθεί ως supergroup με βάση το βιογραφικό των μελών - μουσικών (πρώην και νυν) που το απαρτίζουν. Μουσικοί που έχουν θητεύσει σε συγκροτήματα όπως Whitesnake, Dio, Thin Lizzy, Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol κλπ. Η μπάντα περιγράφει την μουσική της ως:

«Influenced by 70’s and early 80’s hard rock, The Dead Daisies sound is soulful and accessible - equal parts of The Faces, Bad Company and Foreigner: muscular vocals, bluesy riffs, big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks.»

Το "δισκογραφικό τους παλμαρέ" μετρά τέσσερις "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν δύο EPs και μπόλικα singles). Ο πιο πρόσφατος κυκλοφόρησε στις αρχές Απριλίου και φέρει τον τίτλο "Burn It Down". Από εκεί και το video clip του τραγουδιού "Dead And Gone" που παρουσιάζουμε στην σημερινή ανάρτηση...

Destinia - "The End Of Love" (audio)

Η καριέρα του Ronnie Romero έχει πάρει -λόγω Rainbow- την... ανιούσα. Μετά τους Lords Of Black, τους CoreLeoni και (φυσικά) τους Rainbow ο Χιλιανός τραγουδιστής μετέχει και στον καινούριο δίσκο των Destinia. Οι Destinia είναι το συγκρότημα της κιθαρίστριας Nozomu Wakai (Nozomu Wakai's Destinia το πλήρες όνομα της μπάντας), μας έρχονται από την Ιαπωνία, έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο full length albums, ένα ep κι ένα live DVD / Blu-ray στα τέσσερα χρόνια που είναι ενεργοί.

Το νέο album έχει αλλαγμένη σύνθεση του συγκροτήματος κατά τα 4/5α καθώς την Nozomu Wakai πλαισιώνουν ο Ronnie Romero, ο Tommy Aldridge και ο Marco Mendoza (all star band κανονική). Τιτλοφορείται "Metal Souls" και κυκλοφόρησε προ μηνός...

Δελτίο τύπου: Joined by Ronnie Romero (Rainbow, Lords Of Black, CoreLeoni), Marco Mendoza (The Dead Daisies) and Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake), Japanese Heavy Metal Guitarist Nozomu Wakai is set to release the new album “Metal Souls” under his project Nozomu Wakai’s Destinia.

The new generation Japanese guitar hero Nozomu Wakai blasts his way into the world on board his project Nozomu Wakai’s Destinia, with music composed / written / produced by Nozomu himself. Nozomu Wakai has previously released two albums, “Requiem For A Scream” (2014) and “Anecdote Of The Queens” (2015), by the project Nozomu Wakai’s Destinia. He has been recognized in the Japanese hard rock and heavy metal scene for his contributions on guitar / compositions / sound directions to releases by the country's leading musicians and anime's.

In 2016, during a quest for new musical directions, Nozomu witnessed a stage performance by Lords Of Black, featuring vocalist Ronnie Romero, at Loud Park 16, the world famous metal festival in Japan. Though Nozomu was well aware of Ronnie's abilities, he was hit hard by the new Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow singer’s live talent. A direct offer was made, and it was decided that Ronnie would join Nozomu and participate as the vocalist in his project.

Having set his musical course for the new compositions, Nozomu made the decision to offer Marco Mendoza, bassist from The Dead Daisies and solo musician, and Tommy Aldridge from Whitesnake, the rhythm section duties to add extra strength to the music. It was an obvious choice for Nozomu's music, demanding the presence of two musicians with vast knowledge of the history of hard rock and heavy metal.

Upon listening to Nozomu's music, Marco and Tommy were thrilled to get involved. Nozomu describes the musical directions and aspirations of Destinia as 'classic modern' heavy metal. 'The music goes beyond the authentic hard rock and heavy metal in the same vein as Rainbow, Whitesnake and Dio - it is completed with the contemporary, modern sound styles. I am confident that I can create new music with these musicians.'

Highly praising his talents, Ronnie, Marco and Tommy joined forces with Nozomu. 'I was impressed the moment I listened to his tracks,' says Ronnie. 'Nozomu is an incredibly talented guitar player and an amazing composer. In addition to that, my vocals fit in really well.'

Nozomu's enthusiasm towards authentic metal with all his heart and soul is apparent from the album’s title track “Metal Souls”. The emotional guitars and soulful vocals complement each other, backed by the powerful grooves of Tommy Aldridge and Marco Mendoza, the impenetrable rhythm section who has been a huge part of the history of hard rock and heavy metal. Behold the new guitar hero, the shape of things to come in the new world standard of hard rock and heavy metal.

Van Canto - "Back In The Lead" (lyric video)

Van Canto: Γερμανικό συγκρότημα από αποτελείται μόνο από τραγουδιστές και drummer. Κανένα άλλο μουσικό όργανο. A Cappella power metal ή Metal Vocal Musical όπως αποκαλούν οι ίδιοι την μουσική τους. Τον Αύγουστο θα κυκλοφορήσουν τον καινούριο τους (έβδομο συνολικά) δίσκο. Τιτλοφορείται "Trust In Rust"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Bringing pure vocal power to the metal world since 2006, German metal a-cappella masters Van Canto are set to release their seventh studio album Trust in Rust! Now made up of seven members, Trust in Rust covers a wide stylistic range from melodic to bombastic, showcasing their own takes on ballads, hard rock ballbreakers and speed metal anthems.

Covers from Helloween’s “Ride the Sky” (feat. Kai Hansen) and AC/DC`s ‘Hell’s Bells’ allow a completely fresh glimpse at the vocal crew. With several albums in the European Top 20, worldwide touring from Europe to Australia and festivals like Wacken and Masters of Rock under their belt, Van Canto surely gained some patina (in the most positive sense) over the years.

The sound of Trust in Rust reflects these experiences from the road and the time passed with unbroken power and dedication to the human voice in heavy metal: “We will not kneel before stainless steel -for patina we lust- Trust in Rust!” Seven voices, seventh album - of course 2018 will also witness “Tour Number Seven” with support from Evertale and MoonSun.»
