FEE WAYBILL – Fee Waybill Rides Again (2020)

We didn’t see this coming… in fact, nobody seen this coming because there isn’t a Press Release at all: after almost 20 years FEE WAYBILL is releasing a new album, titled “Fee Waybill Rides Again“. Produced and co-written with his long time friend RICHARD MARX, both have been quietly recording this album since the last year.
And let me tell you, “Fee Waybill Rides Again” rocks awesomely. Don’t let be fooled by the ex- The Tubes age; he’s 70, but his vocals are intact. And not only that, Fee rocks here like a few with a collection of killer, uptempo melodic rockers full of nerve.
As said, no PR, but we know that some talented cats recorded here uncredited – one of ’em a guy called Steve Lukather…
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

After a three-year break, the original members of MARYANN COTTON are back with a new album titled “Hallelujah” to be released soon. Frontman Jackie Patino relocated to Las Vegas where he and bassist Hal Patino wrote the latest effort.
The album reaches back to a better time in Rock when hairspray was a key ingredient for the stage along with colorful PAR cans. Anyway, the most important of that time or the present are the good songs, and “Hallelujah” contains just that and…

ANGELES – Hell On High Heels (2020)

Veteran Californian hard rockers ANGELES, one of the most long-lasting indie US rock bands out there. are about to release their new album “Hell On High Heels“. Angeles first started playing Hollywood, CA in the early ’80s and has shared the stage with legends such as Motley Crue, Quiet Riot, Bon Jovi, Michael Schenker, Dokken, just to name few.
Listening to “Hell On High Heels” it’s like living between 1984 – 1988 again. Angeles perform from the heart and refuse to give up their love of this type of music; this is melodic glammy hard rock like a mix of Y&T with Quiet Riot.

NEW DEVICE – Karöshi (2020)

London four-piece NEW DEVICE are releasing their new record, titled “Karöshi“. At their core, New Device are all about classic hard rock in the style of bands like The Treatment, Heaven’s Basement, some early Reckless Love and Bon Jovi.
While their ’80s influences are obvious all over the songwriting, the guys deliver a really well rounded modern production.

BENEATH THE SURFACE – Race The Night [Deluxe Edition Remastered +4] (2020)

For the first time officially released on CD, here’s “Race The Night [Deluxe Edition +4]” the debut album from UK rockers BENEATH THE SURFACE, rounded out by the group’s rare 1985 demo (with Shy’s Tony Mills on backing vocals, no less) completely remastered by Jamie King Audio.
Beneath The Surface had that signature UK melodic hard rock sound with traces of pomp, AOR, and classic melodic metal. Stylistically they were similar to early Shy, Bronz, Magnum, Tobruk and Shogun.

FIERCE HEART – Fierce Heart [remastered +3] [Limited Edition / out of print]

It’s hard to believe but three decades on from its original release in 1985, FIERCE HEART’s self-titled debut album never was reissued until recent time thanks to AOR Blvd Records, fully remastered and with 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks. “Fierce Heart” is often hailed as an ’80s underground classic of the melodic hard rock genre that unfortunately never found its...

CHRIS ANTBLAD – Century (out of print)

CHRIS ANTBLAD might be a new name for casual listeners but for AOR die-hards, you know his involvement in the brilliant Spin Gallery album ‘Standing Tall’ from 2004.

HAKEN – Virus (2020)

Originally scheduled for June, HAKEN‘s new album “Virus” has been delayed to the end of July. While one might think its title is inspired by the situation all of us are currently living in, it has actually been determined over a year ago and its connection to the pandemic is nothing but a result of weirdly accurate timing.
Musically Haken deliver a powerful statement with “Virus”, one that will have this album on many end of the year “Best-Of” lists. It does what great music is meant to do, takes you on a journey. And with ‘Virus’, Haken continue their journey atop the progressive mountain.

MY WICKED TWIN (Doerner bros. from Helix) – 3 Engines (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Like a bolt out of the blue, MY WICKED TWIN (ex Helix brother twins Brent & Brian Doerner) have a new album out called “3 Engines“. A tight set with 10 songs in the 3-4 minute range, 3 Engines rocks.
‘Doctor Doerner’ and his bro have unleashed an album of catchy hooks that makes the songs almost familiar upon the first listen. There is that certain something that makes them easily recognisable despite being new and fresh. This different from their Helix days even though you will get some of that signature guitar sound. No matter what Brent does, the guitar always has that tone to the bone.
