Heir Apparent - "Tear Down the Walls" (St Martins Pavilion 1987)

They dwell in a palace of ivory and gold
In beauty and comfort, a fortune untolled
Yet, out in the courtyard injustice prevails
They've turned their backs on what Lordship entails

They squander their riches on oceans of wine
The masses are starving while ministers dine
The Bringers of Sorrow, the Masters of Pain
Rise up in anger, let sweet vengeance reign!

Tear down the walls - tear down the walls

A code of corruption, a throne of despair
A common affliction the townspeople share
Depriving the hungry and robbing the poor
Slaves to a system they loathe and deplore

A bounty of torment, abuse of command
The wicked are crippling this misgoverned land
The innocent perish, the cruel remain
Take up your sabres, let sweet vengeance reign!

Tear down the walls - tear down the walls
Tear down the walls - tear 'em down!

The peasants are storming this palace of gold
By evil repressors, no longer controlled
The banner of justice unfurled overhead
The victors rejoicing, the conquered lie dead

Yet few of them know what the future will bring
Another unjust and unmerciful King
The nature of Monarchs is always the same
Soon time will come to let sweet vengeance reign!

Tear down the walls...


Heir Apparent (band)
Το 1987 ο Steve Benito παρέλαβε την σκυτάλη (ή μάλλον το μικρόφωνο) από τον Alan Paul Davidson. Στις 4 Ιουλίου (του ιδίου έτους) οι Heir Apparent εμφανίσθηκαν "ζωντανά" (St. Martins Pavilion). Ήταν η πρώτη συναυλία του Benito με την μπάντα. Ανάμεσα στα τραγούδια που ερμήνευσε ήταν και ο ύμνος "Tear Down the Walls" από τον δίσκο - κόσμημα για την μουσική μας "Graceful Inheritance" που κυκλοφόρησε το 1986...

ZZ Top (Dusty Hill †) live | Rockpalast | 1980

ZZ Top (full show)
Προχθές οι ZZ Top γνωστοποίησαν τον θάνατο του (μπασίστα, τραγουδιστή, πληκτρά) Dusty Hill (Joseph Michael Hill το "κανονικό" ονοματεπώνυμό του) σε ηλικία 72 ετών (Μάιος 1949 - Ιούλιος 2021). Τα δύο υπόλοιπα μέλη της μπάντας, ο Frank Beard και ο Billy Gibbons, τον αποχαιρετήσαν κάπως έτσι:

«We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top'. We will forever be connected to that "Blues Shuffle in C.” You will be missed greatly, amigo.

Frank & Billy

Nightwish - "I Want My Tears Back" (Bloodstock 2018)

I want my tears back

The treetops, the chimneys, the snowbed stories, winter grey
Wildflowers, those meadows of heaven, wind in the wheat
A railroad across waters, the scent of grandfatherly love
Blue bayous, Decembers, moon through a dragonfly's wings

Where is the wonder where's the awe?
Where's dear Alice knocking on the door?
Where's the trapdoor that takes me there?
Where the real is shattered by a Mad March Hare?

Where is the wonder, where's the awe?
Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?
Before the years take me
I wish to see the lost in me

I want my tears back
I want my tears back, now

A ballet on a grove, still growing young all alone
A rag doll, a best friend, the voice of Mary Costa

Where is the wonder where's the awe?
Where's dear Alice knocking on the door?
Where's the trapdoor that takes me there?
Where the real is shattered by a Mad March Hare?

Where is the wonder, where's the awe?
Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?
Before the years take me
I wish to see the lost in me

Where is the wonder, where's the awe?
Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?
Before the years take me
I wish to see the lost in me

I want my tears back
I want my tears back now

Where is the wonder, where's the awe?
Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?
Before the years take me
I wish to see the lost in me

Where is the wonder, where's the awe?
Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?
Before the years take me
I wish to see the lost in me

I want my tears back
I want my tears back now

The Rainbird - "Girls on Fire" (video)

24 boys and girls
into the arena
they are tribute
and they will fight to death
until a lone victor remains
your people know you
as a mockingjay
you are a symbol to hope
a sparkle in the night
May the odds be with you
Girl on fire
May the odds be in your favour
girl on fire
Kill if you have
to defend yourselves
shoot straight with your arrow
but don't take
any pleasure
You know the rule
only one can survive
May the odds be with you
Girl on fire
May the odds be in your favour
girl on fire
You know the rule
only one can survive
only one can survive
May the odds be with you
Girl on fire
May the odds be in your favour
girl on fire

Michael Anthony Vescera: Αμερικανός τραγουδιστής ενεργός από τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα μέχρι και τις ημέρες μας. Τον πρωτακούσαμε στους Obsession, ακολούθησαν οι Loudness (βλ. "Soldier of Fortune", "On the Prowl"), αλλά ο περισσότερος κόσμος τον έμαθε όταν συνεργάστηκε με τον Yngwie Malmsteen στους δίσκους "The Seventh Sign" και "Magnum Opus". Τον έχουμε ακούσει επίσης σε albums των Roland Grapow, Palace of Black, Dramatica, Magic Kingdom, Dr. Sin, The Reign of Terror, MVP κλπ.

The Rainbird: hard rock συγκρότημα που δημιουργήθηκε το 1998 και μας παρουσιάζεται κάπως έτσι: «This project was created with the only purpose of playing a musical genre Hard Heavy Rock 70/80 years, that has deeply passionate ourselves... we didn't create anything "new or original" but interpreted the music with passion that motivates us for many years. Rock ON!» Κυκλοφόρησαν ένα ep έξι τραγουδιών ("Assassin's night") το 2002 κι έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο ("The tiger dreams") το 2012 κι εν συνεχεία η μπάντα μπήκε "στον πάγο" μέχρι και προ τριετίας (2018).

Το καλοκαίρι του 2020 συναντήθηκαν οι δρόμοι του Michael Vescera με τους The Rainbird. Αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας; Ο δίσκος "Queen takes King" που "βγήκε" στα τέλη του περασμένου Μάρτη...

Bio: «Under the hard rock influences of the 70-80s, "The Rainbird" was born in 1998. After a few years of running in for the premises, in 2002 they entered the studio to record their first EP entitled "Assassin's night" containing six tracks. In 2010 they returned to the studio to record their self-produced debut album "The tiger dreams" containing 12 unreleased tracks. After the promotion of their album they take a long stand-by period until 2018. The band decides to return to the studio with a radical change in the line-up. The band is finishing the production of the second album sung entirely by Michael Vescera, former singer of Yngwie Malmsteen, Loudness, Obsession.»

Fragment Soul - "A Soul Inhabiting Two Bodies" (Single Version)

Ο δίσκος των Fragment Soul "Axiom of Choice"
As your body touches mine.
As the hours turn
To years a man cannot
Allay his fears.
Feeling helpless with remorse
Your sorrow was my own loss.
As we head for all the signs.
As we wonder aimlessly.
A piece within you
Take from me, walking
Backwards all alone.
Your shadow waiting.

For, the, fall…

Break for me I want you
To leave the light
Listen, breathe,
Feel the demons in your mind.
Beyond the stars
I'll find redemption.
Beneath the ground
I'll find my prey.
Listen, breathe,
I want you to leave the light
In this barren world
You'll live in vain…

Heading to your destination, cross the
Path my game you'll play.
You won't sleep,
This you should just realize,
Orphaned freak, how you have
Your mother's eyes.

Your green flame burns bright.
But time has a mind, of its own…
To think, I'd feel so 'lone…

Sleepless nights
Dreams so dreadful
A voice so hateful…
Suffering through
Thoughts of madness,
With this darkness…
Should I play?

But here again you are
Not lost, not young.
I can see my darling dear,
I can catch a
Glimpse of fear.


Οι Fragment Soul μας έρχονται από την Κέρκυρα. Prog metal μπάντα η οποία δημιουργήθηκε προ πενταετίας και μας παρουσιάζεται κάπως έτσι: «Progressive metal from a Sorrowful World». Το ντεμπούτο της φέρει τον τίτλο "Αξίωμα της επιλογής" ("Axiom of Choice") και κυκλοφόρησε στις αρχές Μαΐου.

Σύμφωνα με την μπάντα «Axiom of Choice is a concept album that represents a journey through romance, torment, fear and, at the end of it, an unexpected tranquility that drives the main characters into despair and deliverance alike».

Η ιστορία που ενέπνευσε τους στίχους των τραγουδιών του δίσκου θα κυκλοφορήσει σε βιβλίο (τόσο Ελληνόφωνο, όσο και Αγγλόφωνο) στα τέλη του καλοκαιριού...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The debut album of Fragment Soul under the name Axiom of Choice feat. Heike Langhans (Draconian) and Guest appearance of Egan O'Rourke (Daylight Dies) is out now! The album is a full length album of 42 minutes of prog/dark-melancholic metal.

Progressive metal from a Sorrowful World. A sweet melancholy with a glimpse of hope inside a horror reality. Fragment Soul is a progressive-metal band formed in Greece.

The band consists of vocalist Nick Argyriou, bass Spiros Georgiou, guitar Dimitris Louvros, keys Vangelis Kakarougkas, drums and percussion Kostas Mylonas, and special member Heike Langhans, from the very well-known doom death metal band Draconian, as vocalist.

Recordings of bass guitar, guitars, lead vocals and hammonds took place at Tube Studio (Corfu, Greece). Fragment Soul came in contact with Linus Corneliusson from prestigious Fascination Studios who would take on the mixing, and also with Tony Lindgren to do the mastering of the album finally called “Axiom of Choice".

Lucifer - "Wild Hearses" (video)

Το single των Lucifer "Wild Hearses"
Baby, we’ve got them
Two hearts to bleed
You said it’s forever
And so it will be

In good times and evil
I’ve taken the vow
In the name of our father
Alright now

They do not understand
This morbid covenant
Baby, take my hand
If this ain’t sacred I’ll be damned

We’ll ride wild hearses
You and I
Past tombs and churches
Tonight
We’ll ride wild hearses
You and I

Baby, we’ve got them
Tears and blood
A hearse to rely on
And a family plot

In good times and wicked
I’ve taken the vow
In the name of our father
Alright now

They do not understand
This morbid covenant
Baby, take my hand
I’ll love you til the end of time

We’ll ride wild hearses
You and I
Past tombs and churches
Tonight
We’ll ride wild hearses
You and I

Someday when we are dust
And all that shines now turned to rust
In our death dream it’s always you and me

We’ll ride wild hearses
You and I
Past tombs and churches
Tonight
We’ll ride wild hearses
We’ll never die


Ο τέταρτος δίσκος των Lucifer είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον (άκρως ενδεικτικό) τίτλο "Lucifer IV'" (μαντέψτε πως λένε τους τρεις προηγούμενους) κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα τέλη Οκτωβρίου (Halloween 2021 λέει η μπάντα). Το έδαφος προετοιμάζει το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Wild Hearses".

Δελτίο τύπου: «The multinational Heavy Rock Megalith from Stockholm is defined by their heavy 70s Hard Rock sound spiced with a dose of Proto Heavy Metal and Doom. Main influences include BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, 70’s HEART & FLEETWOOD MAC.

Lucifer has toured the US, Canada, Japan and Europe multiple times & played international festivals like The KISS Kruise, Psycho Las Vegas, Hellfest, MetalDays, Sweden Rock, Desertfest, long standing German cult TV program Rockapalast twice to name but a few.

Founded 2014 in Berlin by THE OATH front woman JOHANNA SADONIS, the group first consisted of CATHEDRAL, ANGEL WITCH and LADYTRON members. With a shift of constellation and Sadonis' move to Stockholm Lucifer started chapter two.

In NICKE ANDERSSON, notable for his groups THE HELLACOPTERS, ENTOMBED, IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC, DEATH BREATH among others, Johanna found a new writing partner.

Together they wrote & produced the critically acclaimed albums ‘Lucifer II’ & 'LuciferIII' at Nicke’s studio The Honk Palace in Stockholm which both jolted Lucifer into the Swedish, German, British and American charts and earned them several nominations such as Best Hard Rock / Metal album by renowned Swedish Radio Price P3, Hard Rock/Metal act of the year by Gaffa Price as well as a Swedish Grammy in the category Hard Rock / Metal.

Attika - "Like A Bullet" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Attika "Metal Lands"
Sparks become a blaze
And it burns our eyes
The thrill of something new
Becomes dulled with time

I never understood
What temptation was
Until I walked that line
And never knew the cause

Dreams become filled with exstacy
The nights are dark and empty
Sin becomes your best friend
A pocketful of pain
Hunger begins to take control
Slowly drives you insane

Love is like a bullet
In my head piercing through my heart
Love is like a bullet
A never ending echo in the dark

Lies become your alibi
The shadows hide your eyes
Searching in desire
For that one last night of fire
Saturday night
You’re by yourself and cold
The only warmth you felt lately
Came from last months centerfold

Your luck runs out
And leaves you dry
With a wallet full of ones
Her eyes seem to hypnotize
As she unbuttons your denim


Δισκογραφική επιστροφή για τους Attika μετά από τριάντα χρόνια! Ο διάδοχος του album "When Heroes Fall" και τρίτος συνολικά δίσκος της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας τιτλοφορείται "Metal Lands" και κυκλοφόρησε στα τέλη του χειμώνα.

Whitesnake - "You're So Fine" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Whitesnake "Restless Heart"
I want you so bad,
The thought is driving me mad
Like a cat on the prowl,
You come when you want
And not when I call

So sly, so pretty,
I wanna steal all the keys to your city
Tight skirt, skinny leg,
You make a bad dog sit up and beg

You're everything I want,
Everything I need
Come in out of the cold, pretty woman,
Spend the night with me

Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine all mine,
'Til the end of time,
Baby, you're so fine

You're so hot with body heat,
You cause a fire walking down the street
You got class, you got style,
The girls don't like it,
But, the boys go wild

You're everything I want,
Everything I need
Come in out of the cold, pretty woman,
Spend the night with me

Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine

Dance little sister,
Spinning on a dime,
Shake a shimmy little twister

I'm gonna make you,
I'm gonna make you mine,
Mine all mine,
You're so fine

I want you so bad,
Just the thought is driving me mad,
I wanna know what you'll do,
Baby, baby, I can't wait
To get my hands on you

You're everything I want,
Everything I need
Come in out of the cold, pretty woman,
Spend the night with me

Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine
Oh, you're so fine
Oh, I wanna make your mine all mine
You're so fine, you're so fine
You're so fine, you're so fine
You're so fine...


Τον Μάρτιο του 1997 οι Whitesnake επέστρεφαν δισκογραφικά μετά από οκτώ χρόνια. Ο διάδοχος του album "Slip of the Tongue" (1989) και ένατος συνολικά "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος της μπάντας του David Coverdale έφερε τον τίτλο "Restless Heart".

Στα τέλη Οκτωβρίου θα κυκλοφορήσει η "Super Deluxe Edition" του album, η οποία θα περιλαμβάνει «the 1997 album newly revisited, remixed and remastered, plus unreleased demos and studio recordings, music videos and a making of the album feature with new interviews by David Coverdale.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «In the wake of Whitesnake’s massive global success, the band’s founder and lead singer, David Coverdale, set out to record his third solo album in 1995. However, the plan was derailed when pressure from his record label forced him to change course and release Restless Heart under the David Coverdale & Whitesnake moniker.

Despite the changes, the 1997 album was a Top 40 hit in the U.K. Surprisingly, the record was never released in the U.S. That will change this fall when Rhino introduces several versions of Restless Heart, including a four-disc boxed set.

RESTLESS HEART: SUPER DELUXE EDITION will be available on October 29. The 4CD/DVD collection features newly remastered and remixed versions of the original album, along with unreleased demos and studio outtakes. The DVD includes music videos and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album with new interviews from David Coverdale.

The set comes with a hardbound book filled with rare and unseen photos from the era. Three additional versions of Restless Heart will be available the same day. First is a two-CD Deluxe Edition that includes the new remix plus the original album, newly remastered.

Next is a double-LP Deluxe Edition pressed on 180-gram silver vinyl that features the newly remixed album. And finally, there is a single-disc version which again features the newly remixed album . In addition, all of the music will be available digitally through streaming services.

RESTLESS HEART: SUPER DELUXE EDITION opens with a newly remixed version of the album that’s closer to the sound Coverdale initially intended for his new solo release. It’s followed by a newly remastered version of Restless Heart, including the singles “Too Many Tears” and “Don’t Fade Away,” plus three bonus tracks from the album’s original Japanese release.

Featured musicians include Adrian Vandenberg, Denny Carmassi, Guy Pratt and in addition, guitarist Joel Hoekstra and keyboardist Derek Sherinian who bring their exceptional talents to the party. The following two discs reveal how Restless Heart evolved, starting with early pre-production versions of every album track to later takes of those songs.

The DVD features several music videos (“Too Many Tears” and “Restless Heart) plus the Making of the Album featurette. There is also a video EP featuring the three relevant songs from the 1997 live acoustic album, Starkers In Tokyo, originally only available in Japan.»

Boneyard - "Oathbreaker" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Boneyard "Oathbreaker"
In the mist I saw you there,
As someone I had known
But when the clouds had lifted,
You were standing all alone

I had tried,
To put some sense
In your mind
But what it cost,
It’s now all lost
And we are left behind

Something in my mind,
Telling me it’s time,
Down the road I go
You don't really care,
About the feelings everywhere
They're somewhere down a rabbit hole

So let's run away tonight,
Turn darkness into light,
We'll fly to the castle
It's something in your mind,
And do you cross the line?
To the battle down below

Can't stop the feeling,
It won't go away
Won't stop believing,
Even though the feeling stays

Can't stop the feeling,
It won't go away
My sense is reeling,
Pull ahead or stay the same

Paint it right or wrong the message,
Or the song, do you know what I'm saying?
Whether right or wrong,
You knew it all along
It's an oath that you're breaking
Tell me why are you praying?
Is your crime worth paying?
Now I know why you're praying,
It's an oath that you're breaking

In the mist I saw you there
Oathbreaker


Ονομάζονται Boneyard και μας έρχονται από τον Καναδά. Female-fronted hard rock / heavy metal μπάντα (όπως μας παρουσιάζεται), η οποία σχηματίσθηκε το 2015 αρχικά ως συγκρότημα διασκευών. Δύο χρόνια αργότερα οι Boneyard άρχισαν να συνθέτουν το δικό τους υλικό.

Το ντεμπούτο τους φέρει τον τίτλο "Oathbreaker" και κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο Οκτώβριο (αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενο) σε cd και βινύλιο. Σε ψηφιακή μορφή θα "βγει" σε λίγες ημέρες μέσω της δισκογραφικής εταιρείας Wormholedeath Records...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Launched in 2015, Canadian hard rock / heavy metal band Boneyard is the lifeblood and passion of vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Pamtera.

The members bring a wealth of experience from previous bands that include: Tyrant, Septimus, Powerslave and Nekroskope. The band started out as a cover project, but has been writing original music since 2017.

In May of 2019, the group entered producer / engineer Cam Macleod's [White Wolf] Wolfs Den studio in Edmonton and began recording their debut album.

After an extended COVID-19 pause, the band returned to complete the project in August of 2020. Eleven tracks were then sent to be mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Halford, Armored Saint, Anvil etc.) in Los Angeles, USA. What emerged is the Oathbreaker album.»

Immortalizer - "Gone To Hell" (video)

Το single των Immortalizer "Gone To Hell"
Οι Immortalizer είναι ένα προσωπικό σχήμα του Dave D.R. και μας έρχονται από το Οντάριο του Καναδά. Ο Dave ξεκίνησε ως ντράμερ και έμαθε - διδάχτηκε να τραγουδάει, να παίζει κιθάρα, μπάσο, πλήκτρα κι αναφέρει ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι Motorhead, Judas Priest, Saxon, Iron Maiden, Dio, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Primal Fear, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy, κ.α.

Οι Immortalizer κυκλοφόρησαν το ντεμπούτο τους προ πενταετίας. Πρόκειται για ep, το οποίο φέρει τον τίτλο "Unleashed", ενώ μετρούν αντίστροφα για την κυκλοφορία του πρώτου "ολοκληρωμένου" τους δίσκου, για τον οποίο δεν υπάρχουν ακόμη περισσότερα στοιχεία γνωστά πέραν από κάποια singles τραγουδιών που θα βρίσκονται σε αυτόν. Αρχικά ήταν το single με τίτλο "Lemmy" [το οποίο δεν χρειάζεται να (σας) πούμε σε ποιον (θρύλο) αναφέρεται], ακολούθησαν το "I’m Gone" και το πλέον πρόσφατο "Gone To Hell", το βίντεο του οποίου σας παρουσιάζουμε σήμερα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Dave D.R. is a multi-instrumentalist recording artist and performer from Ontario Canada. He released his debut EP on CD & 7" vinyl in 2016 and on social media in 2020. He is currently writing and recording the first full length album. (Special thanks to Jobert Mello of SLEDGEHAMMER GRAPHIX for his amazing cover art as well as the new Immortalizer logo).

When he was a kid he was profoundly inspired by Heavy Metal and Rock pioneers like Motorhead, Judas Priest, Saxon, Iron Maiden, Dio, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Primal Fear, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy, Megadeth, Metallica, Whitesnake, Deep Purple and KISS (to name only a few).

He began as a drummer then eventually taught himself to sing, play guitar, bass and keyboards. In 2020 he started working with legendary Metal singer Ralf Scheepers of Primal Fear to further develop his vocal abilities. He'd like to extent a very special thank you to Ralf for all his help!

He has always tried his best to create new and exciting music. When he started writing material for Immortalizer he wanted to create something original but that still had a vintage feel to it. His aim is not to copy what's already been done but rather to contribute something fresh and entertaining. He hopes you'll agree once you've heard the music. Don't forget to crank up the volume! Cheers!»
