Uriah Heep - 'Sunrise' (2017 Remaster)

Sunrise, and the new day's breakin' through
The morning of another day without you
And as the hours roll by
No-one's there to see me cry
Except the sunrise...
The sunrise and you

Tired eyes drift across the shore
Looking for love and nothing more
But as the sea rolls by
No-one's there to see me cry
Except the sunrise...
The sunrise and you

Sunrise, - bless my eyes,
Catch my soul - make me whole again

Sunrise, new day, hear my song
I am tired of fightin' and foolin' around
But from now till who knows when
My sword will be my pen
And I'll love you, love ya
For all of my time

Sunrise, - bless my eyes
Catch my soul and make me whole again



Ένας από τους "αθάνατους" ύμνους των Uriah Heep και ολάκερης της δεκαετίας του εβδομήντα. "Sunrise". Το γνωρίσαμε από τον πέμπτο (και υπέροχο) δίσκο της Βρετανική μπάντας "The Magician's Birthday" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Νοέμβριο του 1972 (το εναρκτήριο τραγούδι). Μουσική και στίχοι του Ken Hensley. Στα τέλη του περασμένου Σεπτέμβρη κυκλοφόρησε ένα "πακέτο" ("Every Day Rocks"), το οποίο περιλαμβάνει (συν τις άλλοις) σε βινύλιο τους επτά πρώτους δίσκους των Uriah Heep:

➜ ...Very ‘Eavy ...Very Humble
➜ Salisbury
➜ Look At Yourself
➜ Demons And Wizards
➜ The Magicians Birthday
➜ Sweet Freedom
➜ Wonderworld

Το box set των Uriah Heep 'Every Day Rocks'
Ο Mick Box μας λέει για την κυκλοφορία: «Along with BMG we wanted to do something extra special for our fans which will give them a piece of Heep love every single day of the week. Our first 7 albums will be put on to picture disc, and there will be a t-shirt for each album to wear for each day of the week. We have also included a yearly wall planner, so that you can plan your listening or just make some notes on how the albums make you feel. This way you can keep on Heepin’ on! ‘Appy days!»

Δελτίο τύπου: «On 24th September 2021 BMG proudly release Uriah Heep’s Every Day Rocks box set. British hard rock legends Uriah Heep are one of the “big four” rock bands, along with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath and certainly one of the most intriguing bands both musically and lyrically, to emerge from heavy rock.

The ambitious and beautifully presented Every Day Rocks box set includes the first seven albums on picture disc, plus seven accompanying t-shirts (one for every day of the week), corresponding art cards feature motivational lyrics and a calendar wall planner for planning the week’s Uriah Heep listening.

These albums are available officially for the first time as picture discs and the albums; Demons And Wizards and The Magicians Birthday feature both reimagined and original artwork by renowned fantasy artist Roger Dean.»

Cavern Deep - 'Cavern Deep' (Vinyl Master)


Νέο συγκρότημα οι Cavern Deep. Πρόκειται για doom metal τρίο που δημιουργήθηκε προ τριετίας στην Σουηδία. Έπειτα από μία σειρά από singles ήρθε η σειρά του πρώτου δίσκου, ο οποίος φέρει ως τίτλο το όνομα της μπάντας και κυκλοφόρησε το περασμένο καλοκαίρι.

Οι Cavern Deep μας αναλύουν το τι διαπραγματεύεται στιχουργικά το ντεμπούτο τους:

«The start of the expedition. One archaeologist and 49 men stand at the gates of a previously unknown civilization, for a moment staring down into the bowels of the mountain before they begin their decent.

The journey downwards turn out to be more dangerous than expected, they climb down through whirling stairs lit only by organic fluorescent lights. Further down the path turns more and more crumbled, eventually they must use ropes to traverse the broken bridges and tunnels over the deep chasms below.

Filled by the promise of treasure they continue downwards. Many men go missing as they're tasked to explore diverting tunnels, they never return and their screams are followed by silence. the only thing found is their safety ropes, driven by greed the archaeologist continues the expedition.

Motörhead - 'Sacrifice' (Live in Norwich 1998)

Why do they not believe?
I have not lied even for this
Now no-one can conceive
The lie becomes the loving kiss

But I would not fall in love like this
I would not fall in love like this

The women stitch the shrouds
The children murder all the world
If only you believe
Then only you will die

How can you not see the stars in your eyes?
How can you not see the stars in your eyes?

Sacrifice, sacrifice
Sacrifice, sacrifice
Sacrifice, pay the price
Cold as ice, sacrifice

The pain is on you now
Do not consider flight for gain
In you the poison bleeds
Crawling with the mark of Cain

And no-one shall set you free again
And no-one shall set you free again

Sacrifice, sacrifice
Sacrifice, sacrifice
Sacrifice, sacrifice
Sacrifice, sacrifice

Ηχογραφήθηκε τον Οκτώβριο του 1998 στο Νόργουιτς (University of East Anglia) της Αγγλίας. Ακούμε τον Lemmy, τον Phil Campbell και τον Mikkey Dee...

Beto Vazquez Infinity - 'Sto-ko-vor' (audio)

We are the warriors, honor’s our guide
Killing the coward brings no glory
Blood flowing in the enemy’s flesh
Banners blazing in the battlefield
No fear of death if honor guides
There is no sense in fearing death
Black birds announcing the arrival of the enemy
Drums echoing and heaven darkens
Woods on fire and the deafening sound takes over
Honor precedes me and
I shall enter victorious to Sto-vo-Kor

We are the warriors, honor’s our guide
Killing the coward brings no glory
I can feel inside my thirst for blood
And I know it won’t leave me alone
If fearless, I go on and on,
No enemy can bring me down
Beating steel, I await for my destiny
Today is good for dying it seems
Honor precedes me and
I shall enter victorious to Sto-vo-Kor
There will be songs about us
If our value we prove
People will sing about us
We’ll join the brave ones at Sto-vo-Kor
We are the warriors, honor’s our guide
Killing the coward brings no glory
We are the warriors, honor’s our guide
Killing the coward brings no glory

Thunderor - 'How We Roll' (video)


Ο Jean-Jacques Tartaglia (γνωστός στους κύκλους μας ως JJ Tartaglia) είναι ο drummer των Skull Fist, των Operus και των Of Hatred Spawn. Πρόπερσι αποφάσισε να δοκιμάσει τις δυνάμεις του και στο τραγούδι και δημιούργησε το συγκρότημα Thunderor.

Μαζί του ο κιθαρίστας Johnny Exciter (που αποχώρησε πέρυσι από τους Skull Fist) και ο μπασίστας Oscar Rangel (είναι μαζί στους Operus). Το ντεμπούτο των Thunderor τιτλοφορείται "Fire It Up" και θα κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του επόμενου μήνα...

Ο δίσκος των Thunderor 'Fire It Up'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Thunderor is a relatively new band, just having started up in the midst of the Covid pandemic when drummer JJ Tartaglia (Skull Fist) felt a calling to develop his singing and front his own band.

He is joined by ex-Skull Fist bandmate Jonny Nesta and Oscar Rangel (Operus, ex-Annihilator) to create a heavy 80’s influenced power trio that knows how to rock fans. They are releasing their debut album “Fire It Up” this February.

“Fire It Up”, as the name suggests, is an up-tempo, cheery track with two different choruses, massive hooks, and invasive melody. The lyrics are about motorcycle riding, romance, and escape. It’s a fun song that will make you crave the energy of live gigs once again.

JJ Tartaglia explains in further detail: “It’s the title track from the record, so it’s the perfect one to release as a single. If you pay attention you’ll notice there are actually two different choruses that happen back-to-back throughout the song, so no shortage of hooks! The song is for those who feel a longing for escape; you can cure that with motorcycles and romance.

Originally intended to be straight-up heavy metal, the final direction of the band took a turn when Tartaglia realized the best way to complement his singing would be to add synths to all the songs resulting in a fresh take on NWOTHM, that encompasses hard rock and AOR.

Lyrically, the album is an adventure, complete with motorcycles, romance, and danger. It inspires you to go after your life and to never give up. It’s an original album that has enough familiarity to be suitable for Skull Fist fans and a good dosage of innovation that will catch the ears of new listeners.

Tartaglia also cites that being a singing drummer definitely adds a unique twist and will allow for a creative setup when they hit the stage. The 80s-infused heavy metal is recommended for fans of Saxon, Twisted Sister and Skull Fist.

“Fire It Up” comes out on February 25th, 2022 via Boonsdale Records. In additional news, Thunderor's March 2022 European tour with Traveler has been rescheduled to June with dates TBA along with Mexico dates with U.D.O. also in June.»

Bio: «Thunderor is an 80’s-infused heavy metal band formed in 2020. Featuring a lead-singing drummer and an all-star lineup, the Canadian power trio delivers hook-driven stadium - caliber songs with an untamed spirit.

Since 2019, drummer JJ Tartaglia had felt a calling, one which grew stronger each day. Being a member of several prominent metal bands over the last decade (most notably Skull Fist) and having essentially served as a disciple of heavy metal for many years, the time had come to take his quest even further.

A new course was being charted for his musical mission. He would share a vision, a feeling... a message he could deliver only with his own voice. Fueled by his passion for adventure, JJ began to work on drum arrangements and piano pieces that would become the skeletons of the Thunderor songs.

In 2020, with the addition of long-time bandmate Jonny Nesta on guitars, combined with JJ also composing on keys and vocals, songwriting began in full force and quickly yielded an album’s worth of material. Close friend and monster player Oscar Rangel (ex-Annihilator) was then called upon to do bass and the line-up was complete.

Thunderous drums, lightning hot guitar licks, dreamy synths, and piercing vocals would form the musical storm that is Thunderor. The band would spend the next year self-recording the album, priding themselves on recording the natural way, producing an energetic record with a strong human connection.

The debut album FIRE IT UP is set for an early 2022 release backed by an European tour. If you’ve ever felt a longing for escape, a thirst for adventure, wrapped in romance and danger, well what are you waiting for? Get after it and let Thunderor be your soundtrack!»

Edu Falaschi - 'Bonfire Of The Vanities' (Guitar Solo by Tito Falaschi)

Roars in the night
What would it be
I remember four lions
Into my mind
Shadows revealing the awful plan

Ruins of walls of gold
All you believe is dead
Faithless and lies
Cowards and witches on board

You won't mistreat me once again
Leave me alone and free my heart
You all will bleed and drown in blame
Winds of war I scream out loud
You've all betrayed me and thrown away
Trust and love we built along

Lost in the dark
Found in the key
No more time to rely on
Bounderies and chains
For all that I am
And that I'll become

Ruins of walls of gold
All you believe is dead
Faithless and lies
Cowards and witches on board

You won't mistreat me once again
Leave me alone and free my heart
You all will bleed and drown in blame
Winds of war I scream out loud
You've all betrayed me and thrown away
Trust and love we built along
I've been waiting for so long
To be free

You won't mistreat me once again
Leave me alone and free my heart
You all will bleed and drown in blame
Winds of war I scream out loud
You've all betrayed me and thrown away
Trust and love we built along
I've been waiting for so long
To be free
To be free



Η μουσική καριέρα του Edu Falaschi ξεκίνησε από τους Mitrium στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ενενήντα. Ακολούθησαν οι Symbols και οι Venus για να του... προκύψουν οι Angra που έψαχναν τον αντικαταστάτη του (αηδονιού) Andre Matos. Στους Angra έμεινε για ένδεκα έτη (2001-2012) κυκλοφορώντας -μεταξύ άλλων- τέσσερα full length albums.

Τέσσερα χρόνια αργότερα διαλύθηκε και το άλλο συγκρότημα στο οποίο μετείχε, οι Almah, με αποτέλεσμα να αφοσιωθεί στην προσωπική του καριέρα με δισκογραφικό απολογισμό δύο full length albums, μία συλλογή, ένα ep, ένα live album και τέσσερα singles.

Ο δίσκος του Edu Falaschi 'Vera Cruz'
Εστιάζουμε στο πλέον πρόσφατο δισκογράφημά του, το οποίο τιτλοφορείται "Vera Cruz" και κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο Μάιο.

Δελτίο τύπου: «Historical fiction, internal conflicts and betrayals: get to know Vera Cruz's story. Set in the age of great sailing, Vera Cruz has as its starting point the Portuguese city of Tomar. In 1482, a child left at the door of a convent arouses everyone's curiosity due to a peculiarity: a birthmark that, centuries before, was mentioned in a mysterious prophecy about the extinction of the evil Order of the Cross of Nero.

It is based on this characteristic that Vera Cruz's story unfolds and presents Jorge, the bearer of the brand, who grew up under the care of the church and full of doubts: after all, what messages do the nightmares so present in their nights want to pass on? About to open up the seas, Jorge is faced with dilemmas about his identity, mission, love, friendship and intrigues.»

Emetropia - 'Seasonal Warfare' (Re-Imagined)


Προ πενταετίας δημιουργήθηκαν στην Σουηδία οι Emetropia. Συγκρότημα συμφωνικού metal, το οποίο μας συστήνεται κάπως έτσι:

«Emetropia is a symphonic metal band from Linköping, Sweden, delivering energetic and dynamic metal, inspired by bands like Epica, Therion and Amorphis. With a mix of power, progressiveness, and poetically told fantasy stories, their debut album Equinox promises the old listener a completely new listening experience of already beloved songs, and introduces new listeners to the future of Swedish symphonic metal.»

Ένα ep ("Procession of the Kings", 2018) το μόνο τους δισκογραφικό αποτύπωμα, κάτι που θα αλλάξει άμεσα με τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" τους δίσκο να είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Equinox" κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει τον επόμενο μήνα...

Ο δίσκος των Emetropia 'Equinox'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Emetropia is a symphonic metal band from Linköping, Sweden, formed in 2017. While many bands in the genre choose to lean towards a gothic, dark theme, Emetropia instead focuses on delivering energetic and dynamic metal driven by big orchestras and choirs.

Together with intricate and modern songwriting inspired by many power and progressive metal acts, they are sure to make anyone who loves bands like Epica, Therion, or Amorphis eager for more. Their upcoming debut album Equinox brings the full Equinox Saga, which was teased in their debut EP - Procession of the Kings - with all EP tracks also being “re-imagined” and re-recorded.

With years of new experiences and the help of producer Michele Guaitoli, Equinox promises the old listener a completely new listening experience of already beloved songs, and introduces new listeners to the future of Swedish symphonic metal.»

Emetropia: «As the opening song of the album, Seasonal Warfare sets the stage for the entire story. Our lead guitarist Olle describes the new single as unique.

On an album where most songs are fairly complex, Seasonal Warfare stands out as being structurally quite simple. As a prog metal fan, I tend to gravitate more towards the former, but sometimes it feels good to play a no-bullshit metal song with great energy and a catchy chorus. Liam’s orchestrations and Lisa’s amazing vocals really take this one to another level!

The new single also introduces a “re-imagined” label which will play an integral part in the upcoming debut album. Our keyboardist Liam elaborates on the unusual label:

The re-imagined versions of our old EP songs is the result of years of improvements as musicians but also as a band, which allowed us to record new versions that bring justice to what we originally envisioned. Everything from each individual studio performance to our production skills have reached another level. I truly believe that all of this makes the re-imagined versions sound like new songs.”»

'Smoke on the Water' (Deep Purple) 1920s cover by Robyn Adele Anderson

We all came out to Μontreux,
On the lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile,
We didn't have much time

Frank Ζappa and the Μothers,
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun,
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

They burned down the gambling house,
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out,
Pulling kids out the ground

When it all was over,
We had to find another place
But swiss time was running out,
It seemed that we would lose the race

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

We ended up at the grand hotel,
It was empty cold and bare
But with the rolling truck stones thing just outside,
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds,
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this,
I know well never forget

Smoke on the water, fire in the sky.



Μία (τελείως) διαφορετική προσέγγιση στον ύμνο των Deep Pupple και την "σκληρής" μουσικής γενικότερα από την Robyn Adele Anderson.

Neptune - 'Viking Stone' (live at Harry B James 2021)

The stone, made him, a storyteller
He passed, the truth, to us forever

A child was born, in the ages of steel
When Northmen ruled, over land and sea
Built with hands, as strong as steel
Runes became, carved in wood,
then he learned, how to make a...

Viking stone... tell us all you know
Viking stone all the stories ever known

Time passed by, he became a man
He changed the wood, to a harder hand
Built with hands, as strong as steel
Feather light, the hammer feels

Viking stone... tell us all you know
Viking stone all the stories ever known
all the stories ever known

Thousand years of glory

Viking stone... tell us all you know
All the stories ever known
Viking stone... all the stories ever known
Viking stone... tell us all your stories
Viking stone... thousand years of glory
Viking Stone...



Οι Neptune μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 1979 (ως Warriens μέχρι το 1980) και δραστηριοποιήθηκαν στα 80s. Τέσσερα demos ο δισκογραφικός τους απολογισμός, ενώ το 1986 ηχογράφησαν στα Sountrade Studios ένα LP, το οποίο δεν κυκλοφόρησε ποτέ. Tο 2017 επανασυνδέθηκαν και (το επόμενο έτος) κυκλοφόρησαν δίσκο - συλλογή. Τον Σεπτέμβρη του 2019 κυκλοφόρησαν ένα ep τεσσάρων τραγουδιών ("The Last Flight of the Rafven") και το 2020 έφθασε η στιγμή για τον πρώτο ολοκληρωμένο τους δίσκο. "Northern Steel" ο τίτλος. Στην σημερινή ανάρτηση θα παρακολουθήσουμε (σε βίντεο) τους Neptune να αποδίδουν "ζωντανά" (σε προ μηνών εμφάνισή τους) το τραγούδι "Viking Stone"...

Straight as the Crowbar flies

Six feet under my astral projection I witness my rebirth at every return inspection as a Goddess breathes life into every orifice and pore I re-enter my body and I live once more

So clean the grit out your ears and the sweat out your eyes when they throw the book at me...

Straight as the Crowbar flies
Straight as the Crowbar flies
Straight as the Crowbar flies
Straight as the Crowbar flies
Straight as the Crowbar flies
Straight as the Crowbar flies



Τους θυμάμαι τους Blind Illusion. Είχαν προκαλέσει έναν σχετικό "θόρυβο" γύρω από το όνομά τους (στους underground κύκλους) με την κυκλοφορία του δίσκου "The Sane Asylum" το μακρινό 1988.

Αυτό που δεν γνώριζα είναι ότι η Αμερικάνικη μπάντα έχει επανέλθει. Επανασυνδέθηκε το 2009, κυκλοφόρησε δίσκο την επόμενη χρονιά ("Demon Master" 2010), μπήκε στον "πάγο" και την τελευταία τριετία επανήλθε με ένα ep, δύο singles και μία συλλογή.

Εν έτει 2022 οι Blind Illusion θα κυκλοφορήσουν το τρίτο full length album υπό τον τίτλο "Wrath of the Gods". Από την "παλαιά φρουρά" βρίσκουμε τον Marc Biedermann (φωνητικά και κιθάρα), ο οποίος πλαισιώνεται από τον μπασίστα Tom Gears, τον κιθαρίστα Doug Piercy (βλ. επίσης Anvil Chorus, ex-Heathen, ex-Angel Witch κλπ) και τον drummer των Death Angel (τις περιόδους 1982-1991, 2001-2008) Andy Galeon...

Blind Illusion
Δελτίο τύπου: «Blind Illusion’s lead guitarist and vocalist Mark Biedermann says, “This is our first ever official music video! Believe it or not, Straight as the Crowbar Flies is the story of an event that actually happened to me. Someone hurled a crowbar at me and (luckily) they missed. The lyrics and the video bring the story into a fantasized spiritual realm and a humorous one at that!

“Straight as the Crowbar Flies” brings Blind Illusion’s thrash roots into the modern day. “We’re really proud of Wrath of the Gods. Andy [Galeon] has been an amazing addition and he fits right in. The new album will make you want to headbang your way all the way to the record store” says bassist Tom Gears.

We even put out a limited edition Blind Illusion cannabis brand available at select California dispensaries so you can feel the Wrath of the Gods when you listen to the album!” “Straight as the Crowbar Flies” produced by Blind Illusion and directed by George Anderson and Mark Biedermann.

“Straight as the Crowbar Flies” is the first single from their upcoming 3rd studio album Wrath of the Gods, to be released through Hammerheart records out of the Netherlands coming out in 2022.»

Kreator - 'Violent Revolution' (official live video)

Society failed to tolerate me
And I have failed to tolerate society
Still I can't find what you adore
Inside I hear the echoes of an inner war
Nothing can take the horror from me
Your sick world the loss of all morality
My hate has grown as strong as my confusion
My only hope my only solution
is a Violent Revolution

Violent Revolution, Violent Revolution
Reason for the people to destroy

I do not need a cause for my rage
I just despise the nature of the human race
When all I see is repulsion and hate
Violence becomes my only friend, my saving grace
When love is lost beyond your control
A pale shadow of lust can not enlight your soul
So keep your ice cold bitter illusions
I don't need your empty world my only solution
is a Violent Revolution

Violent Revolution, Violent Revolution
Reason for the people to destroy

Beauty is no more it's all gone
And utopia will not come
Trust I can not feel, only pain
And my burning mind has gone insane



Με μία... "Βίαιη Επανάσταση" υποδέχθηκαν δεκαετία, αιώνα και χιλιετία οι Kreator. Οι Γερμανοί thrashers κυκλοφόρησαν τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2001 τον δίσκο "Violent Revolution". Το album γνώρισε αρκετές επανεκδόσεις. Η πλέον πρόσφατη "βγήκε" μόλις... χθες!

Ο δίσκος των Kreator 'Violent Revolution'
Πέραν της απλής έκδοσης (μονό cd, διπλό βινύλιο) υπάρχουν και οι ειδικές (2CD, 4CD + 4LP) με extra υλικό. Πρόκειται για live album υπό τον τίτλο "Bootleg Revolution" που περιλαμβάνει "ζωντανές" ηχογραφήσεις των Kreator σε Βραζιλία, Κορέα, Wacken κλπ.
