HEAVY METAL – Music From The Motion Picture [Vinyl LP reissue] (2017)

After many requests, here’s in exclusive the legendary “HEAVY METAL : Music From The Motion Picture“, in its 2-LP recent release. This is part of the Rhino Records ‘Rocktober’ series, an annual campaign featuring limited edition vinyl releases of classic albums, issued in October, 2017.
The 2-LP release is only available in the U.S. and Canada, already sold out now and very expensive.
‘Heavy Metal’ is a 1981 Canadian-American adult animated sci-fi-fantasy film based in the Heavy Metal Magazine, which was the basis for the film. Like the magazine, the film features a great deal of graphic violence, sexuality, and nudity, censored at various countries.
The movie soundtrack features songs inspired by the story, but most the artists involved aren’t musically ‘heavy metal’ at all. The term is used here into other context.
Musically, “HEAVY METAL : Music From The Motion Picture” offers more than the title suggests, and the songs fit perfectly with their respective film segments. Most songs from the likes of Journey, Cheap Trick, Blue Oyester Club, etc, are exclusive to this soundtrack, some never appeared into any other release, some are different from the originals, noted as ‘Soundtrack Version’.

V.A. – 0dayrox Advanced Releases; Special Edition Xmas 2020

It’s that time of the year, and we are featuring a special editon of our classic 0dayrox Advanced Releases; “0dayrox Advanced Releases; Special Edition Xmas 2020“, including all the fresh Xmas 2020 singles released by Melodic Hard Rock bands.
Taken from the upcoming compilation album “Dance Of The Black Tattoo” out January 08th, 2021, MAGNUM has just released a new version of their “On Christmas Day” song, a great tune commemorating the famous “Christmas Truce” of World War 1. This re-recorded version is a superior Magnum song. It’s a different type of Christmas track, yes, but it’s a very Magnum one.
GATHERING OF KINGS just released a limited 7” white vinyl of “December (Christmas)”, a new version, much more melodic and season-sounding of the song which was included on their album Discovery.
Terrific project AT THE MOVIES also released a standalone single for the Holidays; “Last Christmas”, a melodic little ditty with a true X-mas spirit…

V.A. – Tales From The Edge; A Tribute To The Music Of YES (2-CD)

Tribute albums are all about the band being paid the tribute. Even if they themselves may never appear on the album, their compositions will be examined and executed from a different angle than what fans will have been familiar with.
“Tales From The Edge; A Tribute To The Music Of YES” is a very interesting one , as there’s not the usual covers done million times such as ‘Roundabout’ or ‘Owner of a Lonely Heart’.
Instead, it really takes a deep look into YES lesser know numbers like “To Be Over” or “White Car”, and performed by groups relatively new to the Prog scene, yet pretty amazing…
