BLACKWATER CONSPIRACY – Two Tails & The Dirty Truth Of Love & Revolution (2020)

“Two Tails & The Dirty Truth Of Love & Revolution” is the second album from acclaimed Irish rock’n’rollers BLACKWATER CONSPIRACY. Sometimes you heard a band’s new material and you just get a sense that they know they are embarking on an important period in their career. Make a breakthrough? Maybe… that’s is why “Two Tails & the Dirty Truth of...

W.A.S.P. – The Midnight Hour; Live ’86 (2020)

Titled “The Midnight Hour; Live ’86”, this W.A.S.P. show was made available for the first time as digital download format few days ago. The recording was previously released two years ago on vinyl LP (by the funny named label Night Of The Vinyl Dead Records as ‘Live In Japan 1986’) only. Captured live at Nakano Sun Plaza, Tokyo, Japan on...

STEPHEN BRIAN LEONARD – Faith N Fury (2020)

Today Valentine’s day singer / songwriter STEPHEN BRIAN LEONARD is releasing his new album “Faith N Fury“, a collection of classic rockers inspired by the 70s & 80s. This indie artist manages everything about his art, from performing various instruments to record and produce himself. However, this is a band’s recording. Hailing from the southeast London district of Eltham, Stephen...

WAITING FOR MONDAY – Waiting For Monday (2020)

Formed by vocalist Rudy Cardenas, an experienced musician from the indie LA Melodic Rock scene, and guitarist / singer August Zadra, WAITING FOR MONDAY are about to release their self titled debut via Frontiers Music. The band hails from Los Angeles and was brought to the attention of Frontiers by Jeff Scott Soto, with the label moving quickly to sign them based on their outstanding talents.
Musically, you can expect classic chart topping melodies ala Journey, Styx, and Foreigner, but with a decidedly modern approach.

BLACK SWAN – Shake The World (2020)

Vocalist Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group), guitarist Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake), bassist Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, ex-Dokken), and drummer Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr. Big) have joined forces in BLACK SWAN, a new band signed to Frontiers Records. Their debut album, “Shake The World,” an aptly titled album if ever there was one, is a delightful romp of powerful hard rock that is not simply the sum of its parts, but a powerful rock ‘n roll machine.
Super group? – Yes. Good? – More than that, this is freakin’ awesome.

HARDLINE – Life Live (2020)

The live set performed by HARDLNE at the 2019 edition of the annual Frontiers Rock Festival was, hyperbole aside, one of a kind. The band not only played a superb show, but it also saw none other than original drummer Deen Castronovo jump behind the kit to play on selected tracks from the band’s 1992 debut album ‘Double Eclipse’. This...

OZZY OSBOURNE – Ordinary Man (2020)

Legend OZZY OSBOURNE will release his new album “Ordinary Man” next Feb. 21, the Prince Of Darkness first solo album in almost a decade. “There’s a line in ‘Ordinary Man’ where I sing, ‘I don’t want to die an ordinary man,’ which I don’t think I will,” Osbourne said in a statement. “It was a lot of fun to do,...

ARCHON ANGEL (feat Zak Stevens) – Fallen (2020)

Despite it’s ‘metal’ cover artwork, I can see why Frontiers Music will be releasing “Fallen“, the debut album by ARCHON ANGEL; this is an extremely melodic, perfectly crafted & produced melodic metal collection of songs with a strong groovy hard rock presence as well. Most of you will know lead vocalist Zak Stevens from his stint with Savatage. He shine...

NIKKI PUPPET – Into The Wild (2020)

German melodic hard rockers NIKKI PUPPET are releasing tomorrow their new effort titled “Into The Wild“. The foursome line up is fairly divided in terms of gender, with front woman Nicky Gronewold as well as newcomer and Regine Hellmann on bass, who was part of 80s cult band Rosy Vista (featured here some time ago). Then there’s guitarist Christos Mamalitsidis...

MARK FREE – The Denver Days (1987 / Unreleased)

You asked for it, you got it. Many requested the songs the great MARK FREE recorded with the Denver based band Arrival between 1986-86 after leaving King Kobra and before forming Signal.
While these songs were released by Retrospect Records some time ago, the file source here is a first generation DAT, and I think the sound quality is better. Additionally, there’s 2 unreleased, never appeared anywhere songs.
Superb ’80s AOR stuff.

SKYHIGH – Tales From The Crib (1996) Rare Albums

Here’s this requested rarity, “Tales From The Crib“, the only album by indie US Melodic Hard Rockers SKYHIGH, released by themselves in the Nineties. Being sold at eBay for over $ 250, this is a collectors piece and well worth the listen. The style on “Tales From The Crib” has been compared to Warrant, mainly because Steve Carnevale’s vocal color...

VANISHING SIGNS (feat Steve Lee of Gotthard) – Vanishing Signs (2019)

Pretty silently released last year by themselves, the self-titled debut of VANISHING SIGNS certainly deserve more exposure and promotion, and that’s why we’re here. This international project delivers quality female-fronted melodic hard rock with an ’80s sheen, wrapped by a modern production and one important thing; well written songs.
Founded by former Forsale / Gotthard keyboardist & songwriter Neil Otupacca and featuring superb vocalist Dilana Smith, Nic Angileri (Jorn band), drummer Francesco Jovino (Hardline, JLTurner’s Sunstorm, Jorn) and more, Vanishing Signs rocks, and rocks greatly.
Oh, and they deliver a new version of Forsale’s song ‘Rollin’ On’, using Steve Lee (RIP) original tracked vocals.

KING KOBRA – No Waste At All [The Unreleased] 0dayrox compilation

Many of you asked for some rare KING KOBRA material, mostly with Mark Free at the mic. Well, we’ve done our own compilation titled “No Waste At All [The Unreleased]”.
Among the rarities we found here the very first demos King Kobra did for shopping record labels, and while many of these songs – including the songs as Black Roses Band done for the movie of the same name – finally were released in one way or another, few others are unreleased demos.
A 0dayrox compilation

ANGELICA – Rock, Stock & Barrel [Digitally Remastered 2019] *EXCLUSIVE*

We just presented here ANGELICA‘s first two albums in remastered form, now it’s time for the band’s third effort, 1991’s “Rock, Stock & Barrel”, boasting a vibrant sound and a refreshed artwork.
This, the band’s third album, following the 1989 self-titled release and 1990’s ‘Walkin’ In Faith’, is perhaps the most AOR / Melodic Hard Rock oriented.

PLANET 3 feat. Jay Graydon – Music From The Planet [Remaster for Japan] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

While PLANET 3 feat. Jay Graydon‘s “Music From The Planet” was released some years ago in remastered form by German label AOR Heaven within the framework of their more than interesting ‘AOR Heaven Classix‘ series, Graydon never war completely satisfied.
A maniac studio-pro, and after discovering some new tools, Jay Graydon decided to remaster the album himself for an exclusive “Remaster for Japan” release, featuring a new cover artwork as well.
