Vypera - 'Cold As Ice' (official music video)

You better watch out...
She’s coming, she’s a killer,
She bites the hands that feeds.
Don't you know, she is never gonna let you go.
She's a killer, no nothing,
Nothing can still her needs you know.
I know, she’s taking away your life and soul.

Cold as ice. Don't think she's evil.
Cold as ice. Oh she’ll steal your heart away.

Watch out.
Start running, no mercy when you're on your knees.
Oh she's always on the prowl.
Don't think she’s evil, this is just the end you know.
It’s just the way that it goes.

Cold as Ice. Don't think she’s evil.
Cold as Ice. No way out.
Cold as Ice. Don't think she’s evil.
Cold as ice . She’ll steal away your heart.

Oh you better stay away.
A nine life killer, she was born this way.
She’s seen your fear and knows your near.
Sneaking around, cold as ice.

Cold as ice. Don't think she's evil.
Cold as ice. No way out.
Cold as ice. Don't think she's evil.
Cold as ice. She's out for your blood.



Νέα μπάντα οι Vypera. Μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

«We are head over heels thrilled that we have been given this chance and opportunity to show you all what we've been up to musically! Frontiers Records have always had these amazing bands that we love to death, and now we have a place there?! It's sick.. but we are so up for it!! Musically, our sound is supposed to be a mix between WASP, Triumph, Rainbow and our own minds. Guess that's what happens when all of us are into that old damn good stuff! Again, we are more than excited! See you out there!»

Οι Vypera είναι πανέτοιμοι για την κυκλοφορία του ντεμπούτου τους, το οποίο τιτλοφορείται "Eat Your Heart Out" και αναμένεται στα μέσα του πρώτου καλοκαιρινού μήνα...

Ο δίσκος των Vypera 'Eat Your Heart Out'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of the debut album, “Eat Your Heart Out”, from Vypera on June 17, 2022. Vypera is another excellent young, up-and-coming hard rock/metal band from the Swedish rock scene, the gift that keeps on giving.

Formed by lead singer Andreas Wallström, guitarist Christoffer Thelin, bassist Andreas Andersson, and drummer Johan Pettersson, Vypera are hard rockers to the core. Emerging from the fruitful Swedish rock scene, they are yet another high quality musical offering from, arguably, the new center of the rock n' roll universe.

Vypera formed as "Madhouse" in Sandviken, Sweden in 2016 as a covers band, but soon began to hunger for making their own music. They changed their name to Vypera and began writing music that they felt traveled on the same good ol' road where their influences like Rainbow, Icon, King Kobra, London, Triumph, WASP, and the like had originally started. Their musical signature is that aforementioned classic hard rock style played with immense pride... and joy.»

Excalibur - 'Volando Hacia el Infierno' (audio)


Το Εξκάλιμπερ (Excalibur, Oυαλλική γλώσσα Caledfwlch Καλεντβούλχ) ήταν ένα μυθικό σπαθί, το οποίο ήταν καρφωμένο σε έναν βράχο. Όποιος ιππότης κατάφερνε να το βγάλει από εκεί θα γινόταν βασιλιάς της Αγγλίας.

Το Εξκάλιμπερ (το οποίο είχε δώσει στον Ούθερ ο μάγος Μέρλιν) στον βράχο το είχε βάλει ο πατέρας του Αρθούρου, Ούθερ Πεντράγκον λίγο πριν πεθάνει. Πολλοί ιππότες προσπάθησαν να το βγάλουν, αρκετοί μονομαχούσαν για το ποιος θα το τραβήξει πρώτος.

Σε μία τέτοια μονομαχία σπάει το σπαθί ενός ιππότη κι αυτός διατάζει τον υπηρέτη του να του φέρει ένα άλλο. Αυτός (μες στην άγνοιά του) τράβηξε το Εξκάλιμπερ και το έβγαλε από τον βράχο. Ο υπηρέτης αυτός ήταν ο Αρθούρος, ο οποίος έγινε βασιλιάς της Αγγλίας.

Όταν ο Αρθούρος τραυματίστηκε θανάσιμα στη μάχη με τον γιο του (Μόρντρεντ) ζήτησε από τον ιππότη Μπέντβιρ να το πετάξει στην πρώτη λίμνη που θα συναντούσε μπροστά του, αυτός προσποιήθηκε δύο φορές ότι το έκανε, ο Αρθούρος επέμενε και τελικά το πέταξε.

Μέσα από το νερό της λίμνης εμφανίστηκε η (νόμιμη κάτοχός του) κυρά της λίμνης, η οποία το πήρε για πάντα μαζί της. Το όνομα Excalibur είναι από τα πλέον δημοφιλή στην heavy metal κουλτούρα. Έχει ονοματίσει μπάντες, δίσκους, τραγούδια. Οι Excalibur της σημερινής ανάρτησης μας έρχονται από την Ισπανία.

Δημιουργήθηκαν το μακρινό 1984, διαλύθηκαν (προσωρινά όπως αποδείχθηκε) δώδεκα χρόνια αργότερα, επανήλθαν το 2013 και συνεχίζουν μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τρία full length albums ("Generación maldita" - 1988, "Cero" - 1996, "Humo negro" - 2017), με το τέταρτο να είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Volando hacia el infierno" και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει τον δεύτερο καλοκαιρινό μήνα.

Ο δίσκος των Excalibur 'Volando Hacia el Infierno'
Δελτίο τύπου: «The mythical Spanish Heavy/Rock band Excalibur, has already prepared what will be their 4th album, which will be titled "Volando Hacia el Infierno" (Flying Towards Hell), of which they have just released their 1st single, which is the one that gives the album its title.

They have also revealed the cover art and the tracklist on this work that will be released again through Fighter Records, this time on CD, 12"LP and Cassette next July 19th. For this new album, Excalibur have small changes in their line-up; It involves Valentín García David as the new bassist and the incorporation of Silvia Bolzán "Panther" as the second vocalist and backing vocals.

"Volando Hacia el Infierno" is the most worked out album of the band that has a great production at Órbita Sonora Studios, as well as an excellent cover art, an excellent album that will surely delight the fans of the band and in general any lovers of good old 80's Heavy/Rock. Excalibur's “Volando Hacia el Infierno" release will see the light on 19th of July on CD, 12"LP & Cassette formats through Fighter Records.»

Whitesnake - 'Here I Go Again' (Look Back)

I don't know where I'm going
But I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday

And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

Here I go again
Here I go again

Though I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh, Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on

'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

But I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

Just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity
I am gonna hold on
For the rest of my days

'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go

And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
I have made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go
Here I go again



Το τραγούδι "Here I Go Again" το πρωτακούσαμε στο ομότιτλο single των Whitesnake που κυκλοφόρησε στις 15 Νοεμβρίου του 1982 (με το "Bloody Luxury" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου). Πέντε ημέρες αργότερα κυκλοφόρησε και ως μέρος του δίσκου "Saints & Sinners" (το πρώτο τραγούδι της δεύτερης πλευράς). Την σύνθεση και τους στίχους υπογράφουν ο David Coverdale και ο (κιθαρίστας) Bernie Marsden.

Πέντε χρόνια αργότερα επαναηχογραφήθηκε. Την νέα εκτέλεση την βρίσκουμε στον ομότιτλο (ή "1987") δίσκο των Whitesnake που κυκλοφόρησε τον Απρίλιο του 1987. Τον Ιούλιο του ίδιου έτους "βγήκε" και ως single με το "Guilty of Love" στην δεύτερη πλευρά. Επίσης υπήρξε και μία ραδιοφωνική ηχογράφηση του κομματιού (σαράντα δευτερόλεπτα μικρότερη σε διάρκεια) με διαφορετικό line-up.

Ως προς την αρχική μορφή του τραγουδιού υπήρξε μία διαφοροποίηση στους στίχους (σε μία μόνο λέξη) καθώς το "Like a hobo I was born to walk alone" αντικαταστάθηκε από το "Like a drifter I was born to walk alone". Όπως δήλωσε ο Coverdale "φοβήθηκε" μήπως το "hobo" ακουσθεί ως "homo" και γι' αυτό αντικατέστησε την λέξη με το "drifter".

Το εν λόγω μουσικό κομμάτι αποτελεί και μέρος της νέας συλλογής των Whitesnake υπό τον τίτλο "Greatest Hits 2022 - Revisited - Remixed - Remastered", της οποίας κάποιες εκδόσεις κυκλοφορούν ήδη και οι υπόλοιπες θα "βγουν" μέσα στο καλοκαίρι...

Η συλλογή των Whitesnake 'Greatest Hits 2022'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Whitesnake founder and lead singer David Coverdale had 16 tracks remixed and remastered for this collection.

He explains: “We’ve definitely expanded on the original Greatest Hits, took them all out of the sonic time capsule of the ’80s and ’90s, and brought them up to date, sound-wise … as always, we have the original albums for those who consider them holy relics.

Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, who also appeared on Whitesnake’s recent Red, White and Blues trilogy, adds Hammond organ to more than half the songs on the collection. His scorching contributions can be heard on the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” “Fool For Your Loving,” “You’re Gonna Break My Heart Again,” and more.

New performances by former Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg can also be heard on “The Deeper The Love” and “Judgement Day” from the 1989 album, Slip of the Tongue. Along with those new additions, Coverdale also went back to the vault to unearth vintage performances by guitarist John Sykes that didn’t appear on the original recordings, including a solo on “Slide It In” and rhythm guitar on “Give Me All Your Love.”

Whitesnake Greatest Hits focuses extensively on three blockbuster albums the band released during the 1980s: 1984’s Slide It In (2x platinum), 1987’s Whitesnake (8x platinum), and 1989’s Slip of the Tongue (platinum). But the collection goes deeper with songs like “Sweet Lady Luck,” a b-side on the 12” single for “The Deeper The Love,” and “Forevermore,” the title track from the band’s 2011 album.

Whitesnake will embark upon a farewell tour in May with special guest, Europe. The first leg of “Whitesnake: The Farewell Tour” will start on May 10 in Dublin. Coverdale said: “I pray every day we can all make this happen & once again, share unforgettable evenings together & celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for almost 50 years!!!”»

Metallica - 'Whiskey in the Jar' (Curitiba, Brazil)

As I was goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains
I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said, "Stand and deliver, oh, or the devil he may take ya"

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money, yeah and I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she'd love me, no never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman, yeah for you know she tricked me easy

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber
Takin' money with me but I never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
I jumped up, fired my pistols and I shot him with both barrels

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Now some men like fishin' and some men like the fowlin'
And some men like to hear, to hear the cannon ball a roarin'
Me, I like sleepin' especially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o
Whiskey in the jar-o
Musha ring dum a doo dum a da



Το "Whiskey in the Jar" (μας πληροφορεί η wikipedia) είναι παραδοσιακό Ιρλανδικό τραγούδι, το οποίο έχει στο επίκεντρο έναν "Rapparee" που προδίδεται από την γυναίκα του (ή την ερωμένη του).

Το τραγούδι αυτό είναι ένα από τα πιο πολυερμηνευμένα Ιρλανδικά παραδοσιακά τραγούδια και συγκεκριμένα από τη δεκαετία του '50 κι έκτοτε έχει "υποστεί" πολυάριθμες διασκευές. Οι ρίζες του προέρχονται από το από το παραδοσιακό τραγούδι "The Highwayman and the Captain".

Η πρώτη διασκευή έγινε από το συγκρότημα Peter, Paul and Mary. Άλλη επιτυχημένη διασκευή εκείνη του 1968, από τους The Dubliners. Στις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες το τραγούδι έγινε περισσότερο γνωστό από τους The Highwaymen. Το 1973 έγινε και η (κλασική στους rock κύκλους) διασκευή των Thin Lizzy, η οποία έφθασε στο νούμερο ένα των Ιρλανδικών και των Βρετανικών charts.

Metallica (logo)
Πάνω στην διασκευή των Thin Lizzy "πάτησαν" οι Metallica παρουσιάζοντας, το 1988, την δική τους εκδοχή του τραγουδιού. Η διασκευή τους κέρδισε το Grammy Καλύτερης Hard Rock Ερμηνείας, το 2000. Η Αμερικάνικη μπάντα το απέδωσε προ ημερών (7 Μαΐου 2022) στην Βραζιλία (Κουριτίμπα)...

Jorn - 'One Man War' (official video)

In the battle of night fighting somewhere
Shadows of forgotten light moving to nowhere
Longing for vision those dreams of elsewhere
We justify and sacrifice with hope still in there
Wounded and bleeding but healing from pain
Take just one more step from treason and we’re out of the rain
Draw your sword against the hate open doors to love and faith
Are we strangers you and I
I can hear you cry

It’s a one man war in a one man scheme
We got a one way ticket to the end of a dream
Be the voice in the crowd let your heart be seen
You can break down the walls
So let them hear the scream of one man

In the spirit of flight out in the open
Finding ways to navigate the roads we have chosen
Stranded but the outline waits a future unspoken
Aiming in our universe for planets and tokens
Aerial views over lost Eden
The drone that lives inside my head hacked by the demons
Their silhouettes of dark I burn on my horizon
I’m a soldier of the sun so battered and wizened
This inner maze of violent changes
Obstacles that cut so deep and all rearranges
The malice and divine gaming for the throne
In the eyes of danger another warrior sold

It’s a one man war in a one man dream
Got a one way ticket for this time machine
Hear the roar of the crowd It’s a magic scene
As I take the stage I feel the power stream
In my one man war
Warriors all around let your love abound
Burn the coldness down...yeah...

In the fire of fight when your armour is broken
Look inside and you will find your will has woken
Rise up from the battleground let your spirit sword be found
Sacred is your inner crown... don’t lose it...

It’s a one man war in a one man life
We gotta rock and roll it this is our time
To be the sound of the future the rhythm of the heat
Gonna turn it up louder we own the beat

There’s a one man war somewhere down the road
With their golden tickets to their favourite show
Hear the roar of the crowd it’s a magic scene
Spotlights hit the stage and they all share the dream
In a one man war

Dramatica - 'Gallows' (official video)


Το 1993 ο Dennis Murcia και ο Diego Ramirez που γνωρίστηκαν στο κολέγιο αποφάσισαν να δημιουργήσουν συγκρότημα. Decadence το όνομα. Η μπάντα διαλύθηκε το 1993. Είκοσι χρόνια αργότερα ξαναένωσαν τις δυνάμεις τους και με την συνδρομή σπουδαίων μουσικών όπως ο Mark Zonder (Warlord, Fates Warning κλπ), Mark Boals (Ring of Fire, Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth, Royal Hunt κλπ) και ο Michael Vescera (Obsession, Yngwie Malmsteen, Loudness μεταξύ άλλων) οι Decadence μετονομάσθηκαν σε Dramatica.

Η μπάντα μας συστήνεται κάπως έτσι: «Dramatica is an American metal band formed in the early 90’s. The band was formed by Dennis Murcia (bass) and Diego Ramirez (guitar). Their sound is classic metal, somewhere between Iron Maiden and early Metallica» αναφέροντας όπως επιρροές συγκροτήματα όπως Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Pantera, Testament, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Fates Warning, Dream Theater, Rush, UFO, Led Zeppelin, Helstar, Yngwie Malmsteen, Pink Floyd.

Οι Dramatica έχουν κυκλοφορήσει εννέα singles και δύο "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους. Εστιάζουμε στο ντεμπούτο τους, το οποίο τιτλοφορείται "Fall of Tyranny" και κυκλοφόρησε (αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενο) το 2016 σε ψηφιακή μορφή και το 2019 σε βινύλιο...

Ο δίσκος των Dramatica 'Fall of Tyranny'
Bio: «Dramatica (previously Decadence) is an American metal band formed in 1989 by Dennis Murcia (bass) and Diego Ramirez (guitar) after meeting in college. The band played mostly in the Texas and California area, sharing the same stages acts such as Pantera, Helstar, Vicious Rumors, Lizzy Borden, Doro, D'Priest, Leatherwolf, Biohazard, Anihilator and Coroner, among others.

Decadence's music was regularly played on Z-Rock, the defunct national metal radio network which was very popular in the late 80's and early 90's. Decadence's sound was classified somewhere between Metallica and Iron Maiden, with some hints of early progressive metal acts such as Fates Warning.

Many demos were recorded, including a recording of a show in LA's the Roxy Club while the band were invited to showcase for major labels Sony Music, Hollywood Records and Universal. The band disbanded in 1993. Dennis went on to work in the music industry, with artists such as Shakira and being nominated for 3 Latin Grammy's as executive producer and engineering.

Diego, a physicist, never left music aside either, accumulating an enviable guitar and amp collection. In 2013 Dennis and Diego decided to enter the studio enlisting the help of drummer Mark Zonder (Fates Warning) and singer Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen) The band changed their name to Dramatica.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «Since “Wind of Change”, Klaus Meine has probably not succeeded in creating a song that is as touching, as emotional, as raw as this one: a harmonious guitar solo by Matthias Jabs to start, then the unmistakable voice of the Scorpions singer picking up the sound and singing: “I walked down to Notre-Dame, To say a prayer for Bataclan…” The story of this song is from almost seven years ago, when an attack in Paris at the Bataclan music club tragically killed more than a hundred people by gunfire during a concert. In November 2015, the Scorpions were the first band to return to the stage and play a concert in Paris. Moving moments, both for the artists and for more than 20,000 fans who spontaneously tuned in the Marseillaise.»

Klaus Meine: «It’s a tribute to France, with its wonderful culture and our fantastic fans.” A tribute to the legendary Olympia, to Johnny Hallyday, to the unique city on the Seine, with a good portion of rock in the finest Scorpions style - and an amazing ending...»

'Charlatan' Riff Breakdown (Lords of the Trident)


"The Offering" τιτλοφορείται το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Lords of the Trident, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε την πρωταπριλιά. Πρόκειται για το έκτο full length album των Αμερικανών metallers (έχουν ακόμη τρία EPs και μία συλλογή), οι οποίοι δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από 14 χρόνια, αυτοχαρακτηρίζονται ως «the most METAL band on EARTH» και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

Ο δίσκος των Lords of the Trident 'The Offering'
«Our metal's so pure that only diamonds can scratch it, and usually the diamonds are the ones that end up getting hurt in the end. Our amps are so loud, Manowar knocked on our door and asked us to "please turn down".

You think you're bad? While you're watching our sweep picking wondering how we bend space-time to fit all the notes in, we'll punch you right in the face without missing a beat.

If you like battle, bloodshed, axes, fire, and losing limbs, then mosh your way to the front row and receive your free ticket to Valhalla. If you don’t like these things - too bad. We’re playing anyway, and we’ll make sure to steal your girlfriend in the process.

Daniel Mÿhr (keyboards) on the title track: «As a first sign of life in what seems to be ages, we bring out the heavy artillery in the form of the title track from our upcoming album, Invaders. Inspired by the Battle of the Wabash, we tell the story of how the Native Americans fought foreign invaders when they came to claim their sacred lands.»
