V.A. – 0dayrox Advanced Releases Spring 2021 – Vol.2

This Spring and the upcoming Summer promise to be seasons with great melodic hard rock / AOR releases. If we can find something positive from this horribly pandemic is that musicians had plenty of time to develop their musical ideas and polish / arrange their songs to detail.
Let’s go with the advances from the upcoming bands / albums to appear soon including Night Ranger, Hardline, Cruzh, Rian, Long Shadows Dawn (feat Doogie White), and many more.
Legendary US melodic hard rockers Night Ranger are set to release their 12th studio album, ATBPO on August 6, 2021 via Frontiers Music Srl. ATBPO stands for ‘And The Band Played On’, an ode to making music during the covid era. We have the first taste of the album with the release of “Breakout”, the first single. Night Ranger has always had a knack for killer melodies, intricate instrumentation, and captivating lyrics; and this single delivers all of that and more. We love Night Ranger!

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’.

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…
