JOHN NORUM – Another Destination [Rock Candy Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

As part of the Rock Candy Records remastered reissue of Europe guitarist JOHN NORUM solo albums, here’s in exclusive his third, “Another Destination“.
Norum again shows exquisite taste in his choice of vocalist. Kelly Keeling, originally of Baton Rouge, then later with MSG, King Kobra, George Lynch and others came in for this one, and shared several writing credits with Norum.
The remastering here is almost breathtaking. From the first track, the band are in the room. Classy and classic. You don’t listen, you wade through it.
Highly Recommended

TRAPEZE – Trapeze ’75 [Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded]

Rock Candy Records has remastered two underrated albums by British cult rockers TRAPEZE that well worth to revisit. This is the self-titled “Trapeze” from 1975, not to be confused with the debut of the band with different line-up.
The British Midlands produced an extraordinary amount of heavy rock bands during the late 60s and early 70s. Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin spring immediately to mind, but of serious note are Trapeze, the group that first introduced us to the extraordinary talent of vocalist and bassist Glenn Hughes.

TRAPEZE – Hot Wire [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

Rock Candy Records has remastered two underrated albums by TRAPEZE that well worth to revisit, now with a pristine sound & punch. This is “Hot Wire“.
Trapeze were initially one of the most promising and, later on, revered bands to have emerged from the UK during the Seventies. They blasted their way from obscurity to international acclaim, then, just as stardom beckoned, the carpet was pulled from under their feet when vocalist and frontman Glenn Hughes opted to leave the band, hitching his wagon to hard rock grandees Deep Purple.
The general consensus was that Trapeze…

Paul SABU – Heartbreak +9 [Rock Candy remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

THE HEAT – Untold Story Vol. II (Out Of Print)

As requested, here’s all the complete recordings from Hays, Kansas based mid-Eighties melodic rockers THE HEAT. Seems the band was a sensation at the time, and while they never got a major label deal, the guys managed to put on tape a bunch of their songs only locally released / distributed. They were so good that even a couple of these tunes appeared into a movie soundtrack.
Untold Story Vol. II” is a collection of a somehow ‘lost’ band playing classic mid-Eighties US Melodic Rock / AOR ready for the radio, plenty of terrific melodies and choruses. And the best part of it: the sound quality / production is very good.
This is the actual CD (be aware there’s poor cassette versions floating around) fully remastered for your listening pleasure.
You can’t go wrong with songs like…

SHAYNE MALONE – Symphony (2020)

As we already heard on SHAYNE MALONE‘s previous albums, his new 2020 effort “Symphony” showcases the love for ’80s anthemic Melodic Hard Rock bands by this New Zealand musician.
Varied influences – but with Shayne’s own touch – are all over these songs, from BLUE TEARS or CASANOVA on ‘Digital Soldiers’ or mid-Eighties BON JOVI on the catchy ‘Even Roses Bleed’, to WINGER on tunes like ‘Warm Up My Heart’.

GATHERING OF KINGS – First Mission (2020 reissue + bonus)

A true super-group / project, GATHERING OF KINGS is the creation of hugely talented Victor Olsson (from terrific Swedish band Saffire) who wrote all the songs, except ‘The Runaway’, penned by Maurice & Robin Gibb from Bee Gees. The song is a cover of Carola’s pop hit single from 1986. But don’t be fooled, “First Mission” is a killer melodic...

OZZY OSBOURNE – Blizzard Of Ozz [40th Anniversary Expanded Deluxed Edition] (2020)

It’s been almost 40 years since the release of Black Sabbath frontman OZZY OSBOURNE‘s debut solo album ‘Blizzard Of Ozz‘ and the singer is celebrating that milestone by releasing a 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the album on September 18, 2020, which will feature seven live tracks not previously available in digital format.
The new package includes Ozzy hits: “Crazy Train,” which will hit certified 5x platinum status to coincide with its September release date; the gold-certified (in four countries) “Mr. Crowley” (both of which feature Randy Rhoads on guitar); along with “Suicide Solution,” plus live versions of seven tracks that are currently unavailable digitally.
The record was ultimately certified 5x platinum and was ranked #9 on Rolling Stone‘s list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” in the U.S.; platinum (or multi-platinum) in another 12 countries and gold in an additional 13 countries.
Easily one of the greatest singer-solo debut in Rock history.
A must have classic

NOW OR NEVER – III [Digipak +2] (2020)

Founded in 2012 by guitarist Ricky Marx (ex-Pretty Maids) and bass player Kenn Jackson (also ex-Pretty Maids) NOW OR NEVER recorded their self-titled debut album nd got a great response from the hard rock / metal scene and good international reviews by the press.
Now 2020 with a new rhythm section NOW OR NEVER are back with “III“, the third installment from the band where sonically, the atmospheres are more subtle than NoN’s previous releases, with the guitar and keyboards arrangements adding to the vocals, culminating in a warm, wide and harmonic tone to the album, but still with a heavy and tight rhythm section. “III” is the best of both worlds, melodic but hard n’ heavy.

DEREK SHERINIAN – The Phoenix (2020)

Sons Of Apollo and Black Country Communion keyboardist DEREK SHERINIAN will release ‘The Phoenix‘, his first solo album since the excllent 2011’s ‘Oceana’.
“The Phoenix” once again finds Derek working alongside collaborator and mentor, terrific drummer Simon Phillips. Also appearing on the album are a dream team consisting of Joe Bonamassa, Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Kiko Loureiro, Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Billy Sheehan, Tony Franklin and Jimmy Johnson.
True to their vision, Derek and Simon achieved what is seemingly impossible for an album with so many guests: a unified sound and a clear direction. Perhaps inadvertently, they created THE guitar album of 2020, even though keyboards and drums are the main driving force throughout the compositions.
Awesome

BROTHER FIRETRIBE – Feel The Burn (2020)

Scandi melodic rockers BROTHER FIRETRIBE return with their fifth album, ‘Feel The Burn‘ and I for one am pleased to see a new release from the band. Giving us ten tracks in total, the album kicks off with ‘I Salute You‘, which thrusts us headfirst into recognisable Brother Firetribe territory with the trademark synth laden sound and Pekka Heino’s wonderfully smooth vocals.
Trust me when I say Brother Firetribe fans will love this album, the songs are catchy, especially the latest single ‘Night Drive‘, or ‘Chariot Of Fire‘ which will have you singing along within seconds.
This is without doubt going to be another contender for one of my favorite releases of 2020 and it’s great to have Brother Firetribe back, firing on all cylinders!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
