FOREST FIELD – Seasons (2019)

To be released tomorrow, “Seasons” is the new album by FOREST FIELD, the project of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Peter Cox. While his previous efforts were a bit confusing musically (hence not featured here) on “Seasons” the songs are stronger, rocking, and well recorded. With busy American Phil Vincent (Tragik, Legion, et al) on vocals, and skilled Vince O’Reagan (Pulse, Legion,...

LEGION – Rising (2019)

This 2019 sees the return of one of the most prolific hard rock bands in recent history. Marred by mismanagement and contract troubles, LEGION never reached their full potential and after 8 official releases and no return for their efforts, it was time to call it quits three years ago. Fast forward to 2019 and enter Dutch label Rock Company...

D’ERCOLE – Made To Burn (2018)

After several years, D’ERCOLE, the band set up by Damian D’Ercole and Phil Vincent, are back with a new album titled “Made To Burn“, to be released tomorrow. While Legion disbanded last year, the busy Phil Vincent has an active solo career and his other band Tragik is still alive, but his collaboration with D’Ercole took many years to flourish...

O’REGAN – Tunnel Vision (CD version)

Talented British guitarist Vince O’Regan (Bob Catley, Legion, Paul Sabu, Kooga), one of the hardest working musicians from the melodic hard rock UK scene, has a very interesting solo career as well via his own band O’REGAN. This “Tunnel Vision“, his second album, is in my opinion the best so far, requested again by one of you in its CD...

OMEGA – Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun (retail)

New albums from British label Z Records come out mostly lacking a proper press kit. Take this “Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun” from OMEGA as example. The album was recorded some years ago and a real hype was created by the label about this up and coming UK band, it was released in very limited copies, then...

EDEN – Into The Within [reissue] (2017)

EDEN – Into The Within [reissue] (2017)

EDEN (from UK) is built around the talents of great vocalist Nick Workman (VEGA) and Vince O’Regan (BOB CATLEY, LEGION). “Into The Within” is their last album, and while the Eden never disbanded, judging the success of Vega I can’t see a new album coming shortly. So Z-Records decided to reissue “Into The Within”, an album that certainly deserved more...

Again the guitarist has called some talented colleagues to contribute to the record published by Z Records. At this point I think it’s not necessary a presentation, but for newcomers, Vince O’Regan is an experienced British...
