Halcyon Way - "Blame" (video)

Ο τέταρτος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Halcyon Way κυκλοφορεί ήδη. Τιτλοφορείται "Bloody but Unbowed" και "βγήκε" στις αρχές του μήνα. Οι Halcyon Way μας έρχονται από τις Η.Π.Α.

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τέσσερα full length albums, δύο EPs κι ένα demo...

Halcyon Way: «We are beyond excited to finally unleash this beast upon everyone. This is by far our heaviest album, but it also has the biggest choruses, and it’s just the right next step in our evolution as a band. It was a difficult album to write and put over the finish line, and we cannot wait to have everyone hear it. From the songs to the production to the art, we think all our fans are going to absolutely love it, and when people that haven’t heard Halcyon Way before get a taste, they’re going to be like 'where has this band been my whole life'?»

Dream Child - "Weird World" (audio)

Οι Dream Child είναι ένα συγκρότημα που αποτελείται από έμπειρους μουσικούς κι απευθύνεται κατά βάση στους φίλους της μουσικής του Dio. Τα τρία από τα πέντε μέλη της μπάντας (Craig Goldy, Rudy Sarzo, Simon Wright) έχουν συνεργασθεί στο παρελθόν με τον R.J.D. Στα μέσα του πρώτου φθινοπωρινού μήνα θα κυκλοφορήσει ο δίσκος "Until Death Do We Meet Again"...

Craig Goldy: «The band Dream Child was conceived during a brainstorming session with Serafino (President of Frontiers) one day while discussing other matters over the phone. I mentioned that I had been listening to my favorite bands a lot recently, Deep Purple and Rainbow's “Rising" album, among others in that style and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: "They don't make music like that anymore!" Even though I said that in passing, Serafino asked me a question that would forever shape my future. He simply asked, "Well, can you?" and I said....."YES!!!"

During the very first public memorial for our most beloved Ronnie James Dio, I had mentioned that whenever I do start writing original material again that I would utilize everything that I had learned from working side by side with the Master for so many years in such a way that I would hope to make him proud....and here it is! The name is inspired by one of his lyrics on the "Dream Evil" album and the nickname he gave me at the time, Dream Child!

We are so very fortunate to have bassist Rudy Sarzo as a featured guest, Simon Wright on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitars and keyboards, and a surprise vocal discovery from Argentina, Diego Valdez, whose voice will send shivers up your spine!

This album will bring back memories of the days most people have thought were long gone and never to return, yet it is also new and fresh enough to be unique with some unexpected twists and turns!! No more "same old, same old" here, no fillers. Every song is an oasis in the desert and a rare gem in the coal mines of life in this new world that thinks the past greatness of rock would remain in the past. We've brought it back to life once again!

I am very proud of this album and all who have made this become a reality. There are some big names who've lent a hand in the writing and I am amazed at the new and aggressive sound that producer Alessandro Del Vecchio has brought to these songs!!! I hope you all agree...»

Το τραγούδι των Omen "Evil Seductress" από το EP "Alive"
-Oh don't be so scared
Come closer to me
I'm here to ease your lust
To make real all of your dreams

-She's down on all four
And i know can't resist her
There, there waits on floor
While she is begging for more

-I control your body and soul you're mine
-I'm your slave. I feel so alive
Punish me mistress, through pain I'll live again
-Oh child just you wait and you'll wish you were dead

-There lick me good I'm the fountain of life
But there's a price you must pay
Someone I'll choose has to die

-You can ask me anything
I'm addicted to your taste and warmth
Lie, steal even to kill
But please give some more

-I control your body and soul you're mine
-I'm your slave. I feel so alive
Punish me mistress, through pain I'll live again
-Oh child just you wait and you'll wish you were dead

NovaReign - "Legends" (full album)

Οι NovaReign μας έρχονται από την Αμερική. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ οκταετίας κι αποκαλούν την μουσική τους ως Progressive Power Metal. Στην ουσία αρέσκονται στο -Ευρωπαϊκού τύπου- 90ies power metal. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει ένα demo (το 2014) και -φέτος- έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο. Τιτλοφορείται "Legends", "βγήκε" τον Φεβρουάριο και στην παρούσα ανάρτηση μπορείτε να ακούσετε ολόκληρο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The new generation of Progressive Power Metal full of shredding guitars and traditional, melodic vocals.»

Βιογραφικό: «Novareign is a Progressive Power metal band based in the southern California/ Los Angeles region and has been active since 2012.

Influenced by the masterful shred work and powerful melodic vocals by bands such as Dragonforce, Angra, Iron Maiden and the complex compositions of Dream Theater, Adagio, Symphony X, and Between the Buried and Me, Novareign enters the metal universe delivering the new age of Progressive Power metal.

Along with the listed metal influences and many more, Novareign also incorporates elements from jazz, funk and EDM, to add a little more flavor the product. The last thing we want to be is another generic metal band to our time.

We are here to carry the torch of the Power Metal community and bring it to the states. We mean business and have no intentions of taking it slow. We are Novareign.»

Heir Apparent - "Synthetic Lies" (audio)

Στην είδηση της δισκογραφικής επιστροφής των Heir Apparent -μετά από τρεις δεκαετίες- είχαμε αναφερθεί εγκαίρως. Η μπάντα που έδωσε το 1986 νόημα στην φράση "Heavy Metal perfection" με το "Graceful Inheritance" και τρία χρόνια αργότερα κυκλοφόρησε το εκπληκτικό "One Small Voice" θα "βγάλει" στην καρδιά του φθινοπώρου τον τρίτο δίσκο της. Φέρει τον τίτλο "The View From Below" και συμμετέχει σχεδόν όλη η "παλαιά φρουρά".

Ο Terry Gorle, ο Derek Peace και ο Ray Schwartz (στους δύο 80ies δίσκους υπογράφει ως Raymond ή Ray Black). Μαζί τους ο πληκτράς Op Sakiya (βλ. Screams of Angels) και ο τραγουδιστής Will Shaw (βλ. Athem, ex-Abodean Skye). Την παραγωγή του "The View From Below" έχει αναλάβει ο Tom Hall, ο οποίος έχει βάλει την υπογραφή του σε δίσκους όπως το "Graceful Inheritance" και "One Small Voice" (των Heir Apparent), "Queensrÿche" (ep), "Empire", "Promised Land" (Queensrÿche) κλπ.
