JAYCE LANDBERG (feat Göran Edman & Erika) – The Forbidden World (2020)

Yngwie Malmsteen’s first decade major releases. Unique vocalist Göran Edman. A mix of neo-classical metal with Eighties American Melodic Hard Rock. True analog recording.
If that stuff is your thing, JAYCE LANDBERG‘s new album “The Forbidden World” is a must in your collection. Heck, even ERIKA (Yngwie’s girlfriend during the era and with two very good albums as solo artist at the time) guest here in one song.
Landberg did this album in the old fashioned way; no pro-tools plug-ins, just straight to the amp, real electric guitar sound. So if these aren’t enough reasons to trip back to 1985-1990… just better press play and enjoy!

JOHN NORUM – Total Control +6 [Rock Candy Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Guitarist JOHN NORUM left Europe in 1986 at the very height of their popularity, and soon after released his first solo album, “Total Control“, now wonderfully remastered by Rock Candy Records with the addition of 6 bonus tracks.
Recruiting a new backing band of long-time musical friends (including Marcel Jacob, a former Europe member on bass) and Göran Edman for lead vocals, “Total Control” mix Europe’s melodic side with an edgy, guitar driven hard rock sound.
This remaster is terrific, and the bonus track real pearls; the live version of Thin Lizzy’s ‘Bad Reputation’ worth this CD alone.

When guitarists make solo records, instrumental tracks are close at hand. “Lost In A Dream” and “Feelings To Explain” are possibly interesting for guitarists in particular, both strong, and melodic stuff.
However the numbers of interest are the vocal tracks, such as the catchy “We Will Rock” with a smooth Edman singing this 80s-style melodic rocker with ease, or….
