LUCIDOR (feat Dennis Stratton) – Two Tonnes Of Steel (2021)

Released today, “Two Tonnes Of Steel” is the second album from Swedish rockers LUCIDOR, a collection of straight and easy riff driven hard rock songs. The uncomplicated, yet well made melodies makes this album a fun listening, traditional hard rock with an English feeling overall.
Speaking of British stuff, Lionheart / early Iron Maiden guitarist Dennis Stratton play some guest guitar solos here.
Otto von Lucidor’s raspy voice adds a whisky-soaked feeling to these bluesy based hard rockers, songs benefited by its three and a half running time, straight to the point. And the aim of getting a good beer & rock ‘n’ roll time is fulfilled. Oh, and they do a cool cover of Alice Cooper’s ‘He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)’
Crank this to 11.

WITHIN TEMPTATION – Shed My Skin + The Silent Force Tour [full show reissue 2021]

As happens with many current bands fully independent, WITHIN TEMPTATION opted to release 3 singles every year, 6 in two years and eventually a potential album release. The direct goal is to release new tracks more consistently, resulting in both the band and the fans being at the forefront of fresh, newly composed music.
Shed My Skin“, a collaboration with German band Annisokay, is the new standalone single to appear June 25th, which adds to the recent ‘The Purge’ and ‘Entertain You’.
Additionally, WITHIN TEMPTATION are releasing their 2005 live performance “The Silent Force Tour” for the very first time on digital platforms – previously only a physical CD release, now out of print…

ASIA – Aurora [3-CD Box Set] (2021)

ASIA and British label Secret Records just released this 3-CD box set titled “Aurora“, including three discs with ASIA live recordings from the Nineties, something not easy to find. Led by Geoff Downes & John Payne, this was a very talented and interesting version of the band in our opinion.
The first CD features a performance captured at the Town and Country Club, London, in 1992, CD 2 is an acoustic set recorded in Germany, 1994, while disc 3 packs recordings from Osaka, Japan (1992), Philadelphia (1992), Köln Germany (1994).
Sound quality is very good overall, especially the London gig, our favorite because features Vinny Burns on lead guitar and the whole band feels energized.
Highly Recommended

CHRIS MANNING (feat Bruce Kulick) – Destination (2020)

American guitarist CHRIS MANNING is releasing a new solo album titled ”Destination”, featuring 11 new songs combining his signature guitar style with the talents of Hollywood vocalist Chris Hodges. Manning and Hodges collaborate on a wide range of tracks covering many different styles, but always revolving around Classic Rock, AOR, and melodic rock.
On this CD, Bruce Kulick takes on the role of “creative consultant” and provides the lead guitar on one track. You can hear Kulick’s touch all over the record, and many songs brings to mind his ’80s bands / collaborations.
Hodges really surprises. The tone, control, and range of his voice are on par or better than many of the top male rock vocalists out there…

KISS THE GUN – Nightmares (2017)

British melodic hard rockers KISS THE GUN just released their new album featured here, and honestly their first release / debut CD “Nightmares” (2017) slip under our radar. But it’s never too late, and we assure you’ll enjoy this album aplenty.
This is an impressive debut and one of which the band can be proud. Production is very good for an indie and they have a great sound which gathers from many places without sounding like they’re trying to be anyone else.
