AC/DC – Black Ice [HDtracks Hi-Res Remastered] (2020)

As part of AC/DC‘s remastered 2020 reissues in a Hi-Resolution Audio, here’s “Black Ice“. For eight long years they’d been silent. Then, seemingly out of the blue, AC/DC rediscovered their mojo with ”Black Ice” and became bigger than ever.
It had a higher strike rate than any AC/DC album since For Those About To Rock… in 1981. It proved to be their most successful record since then too.
Released on October 20 2008, it rocketed to No. 1 in 29 countries and had shipped six million copies by the end of that year.

AC/DC – Live (Collectors Edition +9) [HDtracks Hi-Res Remastered] (2020)

As part of AC/DC‘s remastered 2020 reissues in a Hi-Resolution Audio, here’s the killer “Live”, one of the best live albums from the ’90s. This is the ‘Collectors Edition‘, originally appeared as a double CD.
‘The Razors Edge’ album was a huge comeback for a band that never stopped, the tour was massive, and this resultant album is a document of this period. With period hits like “Moneytalks” and “Heatseeker”, there are a few songs you won’t get live on some other releases.
There are also a couple nice long extended Angus jams, if you’re into the solos. Lastly, AC/DC ”Live” is the only live album with then (and present?) drummer Chris Slade.
While no one will deny that Phil Rudd is “the man” when it comes to AC/DC, Chris Slade is well-liked and deserves his place in history. He’s even on the album cover.

Traditional Scandinavian hard and melodic rock with strong AOR touches is the name of the game on “Sunset Runaway”, and…

JUDITH ALICE – Into The Valley Of Madness (2020)

JUDITH ALICE was formed in Helsinki, Finland, by old friends June Stacy and Stan Ford in 2016. The nowadays five piece band has been creating a reputation as a wild live performer and a party maker since.

TERRA ATLANTICA – Age Of Steam (2020)

In December 2014, German navigators Tristan Harders and Nico Hauschildt decided to leave the musical vessel they were part of and build a new one for themselves. They created a mighty ship called TERRA ATLANTICA, and their debut album narrated nautical stories related to the mythical city of Atlantis and other myths of the seven seas.
Now, in 2020 the band is returning safely to port from their newest journey that took them farther than ever before. On this new recording adventure titled “Age Of Steam” there’s again a concept, but this time taking us to the confines of the Earth, all wrapped by their commercial, accessible melodic power metal in the vein of a light Helloween, Axel Rudi Pell, etc.

AC/DC – Stiff Upper Lip [HDtracks Hi-Res Remastered] (2020)

AC/DC‘s “Stiff Upper Lip” has been recently remastered 2020 and reissued in a Hi-Resolution Audio. AC/DC rocked back into action with ”Stiff Upper” Lip on Feb. 28, 2000, almost exactly a quarter century since the release of their Australia-only debut High Voltage.
This 13th studio album proved once again that millenniums could come and go, but it would take a lot more than some silly Y2K hysteria to slow down this hard-rock institution.
In fact, that textbook AC/DC approach to blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll on steroids was never more in evidence than on ”Stiff Upper Lip”. Blues. That’s the foundation of this album, and I love it.

AC/DC – Ballbreaker [HDtracks Hi-Res Remastered] (2020)

AC/DC‘s “Ballbreaker” has been recently remastered 2020 as part of the Hi-Resolution Audio reissue series. A 13th album turned out to be lucky for AC/DC: “Ballbreaker”, released on Sept. 26, 1995, continued their return to form after 1990’s masterpiece ‘The Razor’s Edge’.
Part of the reason for its success was the return to the fold of drummer Phil Rudd, who had left an impossible void to fill during his decade-long absence.
Plus, there was the news of the recruitment of super-producer Rick Rubin – master of the back-to-basics career resurrection – following his successful audition on 1993’s Last Action Hero soundtrack hit, “Big Gun.”
”Ballbreaker” showed us that with the proper tools in place – a persistent producer, metronome drummer, and a strong work ethic – AC/DC are capable of turning back the clock and reconnecting with the essence of their greatness and …

Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records, KROKUS kick ass LP “One Vice At A Time” was part of the ’80s records of the band reissue campaign from the label. Something the fans of the Swiss Hard Rock pioneer band have been demanding for some time.
There comes a tipping point in every artist’s career where years of hard work and paying dues suddenly turn into an avalanche of praise and success.
Krokus reached this point with the release of “One Vice At A Time”, a supremely crafted album boasting a clutch of tracks that elevated their appeal far beyond anything previously conceived or, indeed, achieved.
Co-produced in London by former AC/DC engineer Tony Platt and issued in 1982, with “One Vice At A Time” the band made a concerted effort to refine their sound and ambition by bringing their trademark style fully into focus.
