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.

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…

ROMEO’S DAUGHTER – Romeo’s Daughter +3 [Rock Candy Remastered]

Easily among my favorite female-fronted Melodic Rock albums of all time, ROMEO’S DAUGHTER self-titled debut “Romeo’s Daughter” received a Rock Candy remastering treatment plus 3 bonus tracks. The sound quality on this remaster is simply awesome, no doubt one of the best done by this prestigious reissue label. Fronted with a marvelous sense of style by golden voiced Leigh Matty...

ONLY CHILD – Only Child +4 [Rock Candy Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Rock Cany has just released their remastered version of Paul Sabu’s ’80s band ONLY CHILD, its self-titled debut “Only Child” including 4 bonus tracks.
Paul’s previous (solo) album, the awesome ‘Heartbreak’, was a valiant attempt to raise awareness of his talent, but with limited promotion it failed to connect with the wider public.
Three years later, recognizing that fans wanted nothing more than to be swept up in the emotion of a vertiginous chorus, written in the image of a Desmond Child or a Jack Ponti, Sabu put together his magnum opus, Only Child.
Sabu had learned his lessons the hard way. Popular acclaim was the target. And that remastering job makes the gutsy urgency of of ‘Just Ask’ and ‘I Wanna Touch’ sound dynamic, clear and pin sharp, later mainlining us into the adrenaline rush of ‘I Believe In You’, and ‘Save A Place in Yourt Heart’, unwrapping both songs’ full potential.
It was career highpoint that still resonates today as one of the best AOR albums from the 80s.

JOHN NORUM – Face The Truth [Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded] (2020) the Real one, avoid fakes *EXCLUSIVE*

Europe’s guitarist JOHN NORUM first three solo albums have been remastered by Rock Candy specialists. The sound quality on “Face The Truth” has been really improved here, more defined and detailed.
Comparing this album to Norum’s debut Total Control, this second LP sounds much more Americanized, still intense, refreshing and with a classic hard rock feel.
The line up is completely different as well: The Voice of Rock Glenn Hughes is on lead vocals, and Peter Baltes (Accept and Don Dokken) hits the bass, while Joey Tempest guest lead vocals on one song. How can you be wrong with these?

STAN BUSH – Stan Bush [Rock Candy remastered & Reloaded]

STAN BUSH self-titled debut garnered healthy critical acclaim and cemented Bush’s reputation as one of the top class songwriter of ’80s Melodic Rock / AOR music. With a crisp production by Kevin Beamish (REO Speedwagon, Y&T), some of the best session musicians from the L.A. scene like Alan Pasqua, Mike Baird or Leland Sklar, and packed with terrific songs, this...

LYNCH MOB – Wicked Sensation [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

One of the greatest Hard Rock albums from the 1987-1992 golden period is without a doubt the debut from LYNCH MOB, the band formed by guitar wizard George Lynch after his departure from Dokken.
Wicked Sensation” has been reissued by Rock Candy, and their remaster is top notch.
It was hardly a surprise when Lynch announced his departure from Dokken, the band he’d enjoyed enormous success with during the eighties. The fact that Don Dokken and George Lynch were at loggerheads for much of that time was no secret, so the split was, in many respects, inevitable.
For George it was a chance to strike out on his own, assembling a handpicked unit that retained the services of fellow Dokken drummer Mick Brown with the addition of

DAMN YANKEES – Don’t Tread +2 [Rock Candy Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Yes, it’s one of our favorite Melodic Hard Rock album ever. And we are presenting it in exclusive at 0dayrox the fresh Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded version of DAMN YANKEES second and final album “Don’t Tread“, including 2 bonus tracks.

DAMN YANKEES – Damn Yankees +1 [Rock Candy remastered]

Easily in our Top-50 rank of the best US Melodic Hard Rock records of all time, the self-titled debut by DAMN YANKEES still sounds awesome today, even better on this crisp remaster done by Rock Candy Records including a bonus track.
Super Groups come and go; often in an initial blaze of glory and then more often than not disappear in a puff of smoke due to a half-assed work ethic and the sound of clashing egos.
This was not the case with Damn Yankees, a veritable smorggersboard of prime time American musical hard rock talent: Ted Nugent, Tommy Shaw (Styx), Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and drummer Michael Cartellone.

KROKUS – The Blitz [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

The Blitz” was Swiss hard rock pioneers KROKUS first ‘American’ album, including the hit “Ballroom Blitz”. Rock Candy Records did a much needed remaster of this LP, for many Krokus’ best, as it mixes the band’s early attack with a radio friendly approach.
Riding high on a wave of creative and commercial success, in 1984 Krokus was ready to have the world at their feet. In just four short years the band had risen from obscurity in Europe to become major players on the world’s stages, particularly in the USA, where their previous album ‘HeadHunter’ sold a million copies and lodged itself at number twenty five on the album chart…

KROKUS – One Vice At A Time [Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded]

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.
