COMING SOON Hydrogyn-Deadly Passions:hits stores June 23th UK-June 10th 2008 U.S.A .The Second release by this female fronted hard rock band hailing from Ashland Kentucky.There first cd is a great start for this hard hitting band "Bomb Shell",Deadly Passions continues the same path if not only to say a bit harder maybe none the less a very solid sophmore cd by Hydrogyn.This should be one band we should keep our eyes on think they will be very big soon. http://www.hydrogyn.com http://www.myspace.com/hydrogyn Pyramaze-Immortal,Release dates:May 30th Europe,June 24th 2008 U.S.A,Japan and Russain release dates coming soon.Pyramaze is one of my fav newer bands of the last couple of years starting off with "legend Of the Bone Carver Featuring Lance King On vocals.He is a supurb singer in his own right and I'll add a link for more info you can check out at the end.On to Immortal This cd unlike others has a bit more Iced Earth feel to it.No suprise here considering the vocals are none other than Matt Barlow (former and now returned vox for Iced Earth.This Cd is killer through and through.Melodic power metal at its finest.A must for any power metal fan out there or even if you just like Matt Barlow. http://www.pyramaze.com http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseactio n=user.viewprofile&friendid=209353019 Gypsy Rose-Another World:Gypsy Rose is a band I'm not to familure with.They have released two previous cd entitled Prey in 1990 and self titled Cd Gypse Rose in 2005.I don't know who the singer was on those two cd's but very good 80's CD's.Another World will be out on June 20th 2008 featuring none other than David Reece ex singer of Accept,Bangelore choire and Sircle of Silence.This is yet another feel good 80's style rock Cd.if your like me and miss and love the 80's metal you will deffinatly love this.Gypsy Rose is a sure hit for those of us hair metal heads it just kicks Arse. http://www.gypsyrose.se/main.htm Out Now H.E.A.T-Heat:The Debut Cd by Swedish rockers H.E.A.T self titled hit stores on April 28th 2008.These guys take all that was great and killer from the 80's(got a feeling thats what they grew up listening too)great hooks and riffs with well written lyrics and all put together in the best 80's form one could ever want in a band in the 2000's.I give this a rating of 11 highly recomended for any melodic rock needs http://www.heatsweden.com Virus IV-Dark Sun:Virus IV is a Belgium group featuring the voice of one of metals finest female singers Magali Luyten.She Has Appeared on Cd's such as Beautiful Sin, Ayreon's Cd- 01011001.Though there listed on myspaxce as metal/rock/goth I'd have to say there more just pure metal through en' through which's suits me quite well.The music is as tight as any band out now.Vocally well for me just plain dead on killer.One band I will be keeping my eye on.Enjoy Metal heads. http://www.virus4.net Benedictum-Seasons of Tragedy:Seasons of Tragedy out now.This is the sophmore release by the San Diego's based metalers.Uncreation showed a good taste of what Benedictum had to offer very Impressive debut cd.Now with Season of Tragedy the onsluaght for your ear as well as your heavy metal appietite.Veronica's vocals are as strong if not even stronger on this one as the previous Cd.Pete Wells kicks out some awsome riffage as usual.Jesse Wright and Paul Courtois Bring in the driving hammer perfectly along with Tony Diaz layering keyboards bring a nice ambiance to it all.All in all this is a excellent second effort by Beneditcum.Be sure to check them out don't think you will be disappointed. http://www.benedictum.net/Home.htm
Savadog writes: It's time again Rockers and Rockettes for another installment of upcoming releases as well as reviews of Awsome artists already out. COMING SOON 3 Doors Down-Self Titled Cd due in stores May 20th 2008.Having been a fan of 3 Doors Down from there debut release "The Better Life" comes there 4th Cd.Having only heard a couple tracks from this new Cd it sounds as solid as the others.No real suprises here but that's ok.3 Doors Down doesn't need to change there style in my opinion what they have works and it works well, as the saying goes don't fix what's not broken.Have a feeling this will end up being another great success for them.If you liked there previous work you will like this one as well. http://www.3doorsdown.com Kings x-CD-XV May 20th 2008realease date.I have to admit here since there cridicly acclaimed "gretchen goes to Nebraska" I've pretty much lost track of Kings x.Not to say there not a good or even great band though the great I've not realy seen yet.Remembering how good "gretchen goes to nebraska"is leaves me to think this may not measure up to that Cd.From there website you will be able to hear one track from this new Cd.Sad to say not much change in them here,other than to say the song left me not realy wanted more.I will have to check the rest of this when it comes out in hopes there are better tracks from it.Lets hope so. http://www.kingsxrocks.com blaze Bayley-May 30th 2008 Release of "The man who wouldn't die".blaze Bayley former singer for Iron Maiden (The X Factor,Virtual XI.)Though in my opinion not as powerful a singer as Bruce Dickinson is nonetheless a good singer in his own right.I've not heard any of his solo work except for a clip from his website.His work in maiden was quit good.I will Be checking out more of him soon. http://www.planetblaze.com Jorn Lande-"Lonely are the brave will be out june 6th 2008 according to his website.Jorn is one of the best melodic rock singers out today having lent his awsome voice to bands:The snakes,Ark,Millenium,Masterplan as well as a collaboration with Russell Allen(Symphony X.)Having heard this mans work "lonely are the brave" will yet again be another excellent adding to any melodic rocker out there.You can check out the title track for this Cd at http://www.myspace.com/realjorn http://www.jornlande.com OUT NOW Jon Oliva's Pain-Global Warning hit the stores on March 22nd 2008.HMmmmmmm where does one begin with Jon Oliva.Along with his brother chris(RIP) created one of rock/metals best bands Savatage of which I'm a huge fan of as well as helping with Chris Caffery with Trans Siberain Orchastra aka TSO.Though no word if there will be another Savatage Cd but atleast we have his solo stuff this his Fourth under this name.This Cd is as strong if not maybe a bit stronger than the debut "Tage Mahal".While Listening to any of jon's stuff you will certainly hear the Savatage sound but hey what would one expect from a founding member of said band.In my opinion anything this man touches is gold in the music world.Then again i'm bias due to my love of Savatage.A must in my opinion to anyone with a pulse. http://www.jonoliva.net/index2.htm Kamelot-Ghost Opera "The Second Coming" April 8th 2008 for the U.S.A.Well what can one say of Kamelot these guys have put out nothing but great progressive metal since day one.This release is a 2 disc reissue featuring a live Cd from Belgrade, Two videos including new studio tracks along with a new cover and booklet.If you've not heard of Kamelot what dungeoun have you been locked in.Get your butts in gear and check them out like YESTERDAY.LOL http://www.kamelot.com Violent Divine-Self Titled yes yet another self titled Cd atleast its a debut and not like established bands that due so I think to not coming up with a album name but anyways.Violent Divine hailing from sweden and let me tell ya it's always great to hear a band that brings back the straight forward in your face hard rock.Violent Divine is one breath of fresh are to the cookie cutter corperate junk that we are all hammered with on fcc controled radio(thank god for Internet Radio)although i've yet to hear them played on reg radio here.They should be played everywhere if for no reason other than to shake up the poor excuse of music that seems to be the norm of today.If you like your music straight ahead then Violent Divine is for you. http://www.violentdivine.se Theory of a deadman-Scars & Souvenirs out on April 1st 2008.Another band I've been a long time fan of well since there debut release "Theory of a deadman".Yet again another hard hitting band original sound there realy is no band out that sounds anything like them a pleasant change in today's music scene.Scars & Souvenirs is another excellent CD,The writing is dead on and as always the musicianship is as tight if not tighter than ever before.If this Cd doesn't turn heads to the rockers of the world then I think nothing will ever.a deffinate must for any rocker or rockette out there.Go get this great Cd. http://www.theoryofadeadman.com TWO WEEKS FROM NOW LOOK FORWARD TO VOLUME 6 FEATURING :At this present time volume 6 will be a surprise to you as well as myself due to not sure who I will find for this one but never fear rockers and rockettes I will search high & low for the next issue.
