Run for your lives, there's no escape

Neptune - "Dreamer" (video)

I see a tear, a lonely tear
Running down your face, and I know I must have hurt you bad
But don't cry no more, its not for real
Its just imagination, in the longest dream... she's a

Dreamer, dreaming of the past
Shes a dreamer dreaming of the past
Little dreamer she`s a dreamer

And suddenly I see, the sun rising up
A new morning is here, birds singing loud
It touched my heart, and I feel alive again
And with you close to me, a new day is here... she's a

Dreamer, dreaming of the past
Shes a dreamer dreaming of the past
Little dreamer she`s a dreamer


Το συγκρότημα Neptune
Οι Neptune μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Δημιουργήθηκαν (ως Warriens μέχρι το 1980) το 1979 και δραστηριοποιήθηκαν στα 80ies. Τέσσερα demos ο δισκογραφικός τους απολογισμός, ενώ το 1986 ηχογράφησαν στα Sountrade Studios ένα LP, το οποίο δεν κυκλοφόρησε ποτέ.

Προ μηνών (το 2017) επανασυνδέθηκαν και κυκλοφόρησαν δίσκο. Τιτλοφορείται "Land of Northern", περιλαμβάνει όλα τα ηχογραφήματα της Σουηδικής μπάντας και "βγήκε" τον περασμένο χειμώνα (μέσα Φεβρουαρίου).

Πλέον οι Neptune βάζουν πλώρη για δίσκο με καινούριο υλικό. Έχουν ετοιμάσει (και παρουσιάσει) ήδη δύο νέα τραγούδια. Τα πρώτα μετά από τριάντα χρόνια! Το δεύτερο (χρονικά) τιτλοφορείται "Dreamer" και (σύμφωνα με την μπάντα): "Dreamer is a song about different views of the reality"...

Neptune: «Finally time for releasing another new (old) song - Dreamer. This time with a smaller flirt to the 80's and the style of rock videos that was not quite unusual at that time.Would also like to give a big thanks to Janne Stark who played guitar solo on both Dreamer (even in the video this time) and Keep Us Alive (released earlier).»

Moonspell - "Alma Mater" (video)

Το βίντεο των Moonspell  για το "Alma Mater" από το album "Lisboa Under the Spell"
Band: Moonspell
Country of origin: Portugal
Location: Brandoa, Amadora, Lisbon

Type: Live album
Release date: August 17th, 2018
Label: Napalm Records
Format: 3CD, 3 12" vinyls, Digital

Disc 1: "Wolfheart" show - full album played live

Disc 3: "Extinct" show - full album played live

Band members:
Aires Pereira - Bass

Pedro Paixão - Keyboards, Samples, Programming, Guitars

Guest/Session:
Mariangela Demurtas - Vocals (female) on "Raven Claws"
Carolina Torres - Vocals (female) on "Extinct"

Δελτίο τύπου: «A unique and solemn spell seems to shroud every spot as soon as Portuguese alchemists Moonspell enter the stage - and it was a very special evening indeed when the band played an exceptional show at the Campo Pequeno arena in their hometown Lissabon on February 4th, 2017.

That inimitable bond between the gothic metal act and 4.000 of their fans in the sold-out venue is pure electricity, captured for all eternity on the massive DVD / Blu-ray package Lisboa under the spell. Three discs cover the cult albums Wolfheart, Irreligious and Extinct (all three performed live in full-length!) and in addition boast a very intimate one-hour documentary offering a glimpse behind the scenes.

It was definitely about time, since Moonspell aficionados have been thirsting for a new DVD ever since Lusitanian Metal (2008)! Thus Lisboa under the spell is not simply a visual testimony to the success of Portugal`s biggest metal band - it is a celebration of the unbound creativity and pure magic that is Moonspell.»

Armored Saint - "Live at Dynamo Open Air" (May 15, 1989)

Οι Armored Saint στο Dynamo Open Air το 1989
Τον Μάιο του 1989 οι Armored Saint εμφανίσθηκαν για πρώτη φορά στην Ευρώπη μετέχοντας στο Ολλανδικό φεστιβάλ Dynamo Open Air. Η εμφάνιση ξεπέρασε την μία ώρα παρουσιάζοντας δεκατρία τραγούδια (βλ. tracklist παρακάτω) από τους (θρυλικούς) τρεις πρώτους δίσκους της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας. Το κάτωθι βίντεο απεικονίζει ακριβώς τι συνέβη πριν από 29 χρόνια...

Joey Vera: «One of the things that bothered us most about the early part of our career is that our record company (Chrysalis) and our management kept us from touring in Europe, This made absolutely no sense to us as we were influenced mainly by European bands.

Well, in mid 1989 we got a chance to play Europe for the very first time in Holland at the Dynamo Club and the Dynamo Open Air Festival. It was a dream come true for all of us but especially for David Prichard, who had just been diagnosed with Leukemia. Check out this early version of Reign of Fire which we had just written which includes an alternate arrangement.»

Orion's Reign - "Ride to War" (lyric video)

Οι Orion's Reign δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από 17 χρόνια στην Αθήνα. Ευρωπαϊκής "κοπής" power metal. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει έναν ολοκληρωμένο δίσκο προ δεκαετίας ("Nuclear Winter"). (Είχαν προηγηθεί δύο demos και το ep "Beyond Eternity" to 2007.) Το δεύτερο full length album του Αθηναϊκού συγκροτήματος είναι προ των πυλών. Τιτλοφορείται "Scores Of War" κι αναμένεται στα μέσα Οκτωβρίου...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Orion's Reign are back with their second full-length studio album, "Scores of War", set for an October 19th release by Pride & Joy Music.

The album, engineered, mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Powerwolf, Arch Enemy, Dragonforce, Amorphis etc.), in Sweden by Jens Bergen, Linus Corneliusson and Orion's Reign, includes 11 tracks of epic/symphonic metal.

The band continues the music path it had already begun with the previous album "Nuclear Winter", offering this time a full symphonic experience profoundly influenced by epic movie scores, with a complete orchestra, bombastic rhythms, massive choirs and guest appearances such as Tim Ripper Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Bob Katsionis (Firewind), Mark Boals (Malmsteen) and others.

The record is extremely diversified and contains much to explore, from Symphonic Speed Metal to catchy (Hard) Rock sounds, as well as operatic refrains filigreeing rich emotionality. The single "The Undefeated Gaul" is the first appetizer of the album, with fast riffs, heavy rhythm section and furious guitar solos! Stay tuned for more single releases!»

Ten - "Jericho" (audio)

Illuminati: δηλαδή "Πεφωτισμένοι" στα Λατινικά. Μυστική οργάνωση που ιδρύθηκε τον 18ο αιώνα στην Βαυαρία, της οποίας τα μέλη πρέσβευαν ότι φωτίζονταν άμεσα από τον Θεό, χωρίς τα μυστήρια. Τέτοιες αιρέσεις παρουσιάστηκαν στην Ισπανία, στην Βαυαρία και στην Πικαρδία. Στα τελειώματα του 18ου αιώνα οι Ιλλουμινάτοι προσέγγισαν τον Ελευθεροτεκτονισμό. To 1907 μετέφεραν την έδρα τους στο Βερολίνο.

Στόχος της οργάνωσης ήταν η ανακάλυψη μυστικών για να τα αποκαλύψει σε περίπτωση έκτακτης ανάγκης. Αναπτύχθηκαν μύθοι και θεωρίες συνωμοσίας έχοντας ως επίκεντρο τις (υποτιθέμενες) δραστηριότητές της, στις οποίες περιλαμβάνονται η Γαλλική Επανάσταση, ο αγώνας εναντίον της Καθολικής Εκκλησίας καθώς και βλέψεις παγκόσμιας κυριαρχίας.

"Illuminati" είναι και ο τίτλος του νέου δίσκου των Ten. Ο διάδοχος του περσινού album "Gothica" και 14ος συνολικά full length στουντιακός δίσκος των Βρετανών hard rockers θα κυκλοφορήσει στις αρχές Νοεμβρίου. "Ποδαρικό" κάνει η ακρόαση του τραγουδιού "Jericho"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hot on the heels of last year’s “Gothica”, UK hard rock stalwarts are returning with a new album, “Illuminati” in 2018! The album promises to be one of the hallmarks of their 22+ years career, where fans will easily spot all the trademark textures and flavours they have come to expect from Ten, with a consistent and solid spark of creativity throughout. “Illuminati” continues to build upon the rich legacy that the great British rockers have established in their 20+ year career.

“Illuminati” is said to be an elite, secret organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of the global society. A coalition that unites influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole.

The album “Illuminati” brings the band’s atmospheres and sounds and weaves them into a reel of mysteries, esoteric tales, and elaborate spells, evoking embers that spark the imagination courtesy of the classic songwriting of vocalist Gary Hughes.

Following the success of the recent string of albums, from “Albion” to “Gothica”, Hughes is joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott and John Halliwell along with bass player Steve McKenna, keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch, and drummer Max Yates.

On their fourth outing as a collective unit, the musicians in Ten have raised the bar even higher than they had previously. The album is full of stunning guitar work over a rich keyboard, bass, and drum tapestry with Hughes’ rich vocals once again bringing the nuances of the intricate lyrics to life.

“Illuminatii” was produced by Gary Hughes and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. Ten’s longstanding professional association with Dennis has been ongoing since he mixed their 2011 album, “Stormwarning” and has always guaranteed albums with stunning sound and production.»

Fretless - "Freedom" (audio)

Το τραγούδι των Fretless "Freedom" μέσα από τον "Damnation"
Οι Fretless μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από εννέα χρόνια και λατρεύουν το 80ies hard rock / heavy metal. Αναφέρουν ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι: Dio, Iron Maiden, Running Wild, Accept, Saxon κι είναι πανέτοιμοι να κυκλοφορήσουν τον καινούριο τους δίσκο, ο οποίος φέρει τον τίτλο "Damnation". "Ποδαρικό" κάνει το τραγούδι "Freedom"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The first single of the swedish Hard rock / Metal Band Fretless - "Freedom" was released. The song will be on the upcoming album "Damnation". 2009 Fretless started in Gothenburg, Sweden by Patte Carlsson who is now the only original member left in the band.

Right from the start there was a great response when the band played live and they created quite a buzz on the local circuit. In 2010 they started recording their album "Local Heroes", which they mastered at the well known studio, Bohus Sound, near their native Gothenburg.

Many labels showed an interest in the album, but they decided to work together with E.L.T. Records in Birmingham (UK). In December 2010 the album 'Local Heroes' was released digitally and can now be found on all major download sites. In January 2011 the physical CD was released. After the release party at Valand in Gothenburg on January 28'th, many radio stations worldwide picked up and played the album.

The track 'Rock You' was used on the soundtrack for the Swedish film 'The Jaukka Brothers', which was released in 2010 by Doppelganger Film in Stockholm. 2012 Fretless did an US tour in Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma. Today Fretless has 4 members. The line up today is stronger than ever before and the guys really rocks!

Fretless have been compared to Iron Maiden, Pretty Maids, Accept, Running Wild, Thunder, Saxon and many more. How is this possible you might ask your self. Well these guys have combined these bands to create their own sound. Of course they are influenced by the old school 80's hard rock, but they Rock their own way. They Rock "The Fretless Way!"»

John Sykes - "Out Alive" (audio)

John James Sykes: όνομα - ιστορία! Τι να πρωτοαναφέρεις! Whitesnake; Tygers Of Pan Tang; Thin Lizzy; Blue Murder; Κάπου στις αρχές του αιώνα σταμάτησε να δισκογραφεί. Τα τελευταία χρόνια επανενεργοποιήθηκε. Αναφερθήκαμε ήδη στην παρουσία του στο tribute album προς τιμήν του Gary Moore ("Moore Blues for Gary") όπου έπαιξε κιθάρα στην διασκευή του "Still Got The Blues (For You)".

Πέραν τούτου όμως σχεδιάζει κυκλοφορία νέου προσωπικού δίσκου. Το album τιτλοφορείται "Sy-Ops", έχει ανακοινωθεί αρκετές φορές τα τελευταία χρόνια, αλλά πλέον φαίνεται πως μετράμε αντίστροφα για την κυκλοφορία του. Ο John Sykes έχει θέσει ως χρονικό διάστημα τον προσεχή Δεκέμβριο. Για να δούμε (γιατί το December 2018 συνοδεύεται με ερωτηματικό).

Θα είναι το πέμπτο "ολοκληρωμένο" στουντιακό album στην καριέρα του Άγγλου κιθαρίστα, ο οποίος έχει συμμετάσχει σε κλασικούς δίσκους όπως το ομώνυμο (ή "1987") των Whitesnake, τους "Spellbound" - "Crazy Nights" - "The Cage" των Tygers Of Pan Tang, το "Thunder and Lightning" των Thin Lizzy κλπ.
