Magna Carta Cartel - Sway


MAGNA CARTA CARTEL or MCC is a Swedish rock band from Linköping. Formed in 2006, the group went on hiatus in 2010 when three of its members began to focus on their other band, GHOST. After leaving GHOST, Martin Persner announced in March 2017 that MCC had resumed activities.

MCC plays magical rock music or as they say “Radio-edited movie themes, for daily life and death”.

Our music reminds of VANGELIS meeting Tom Petty, trying to reach U2, willing to be JOY DIVISION, feeling like ABBA, longing to be Brian Eno, remembering Jean Michel Jarre, looking at METALLICA, sleeping with Mike Oldfield, dancing to Koto, hunting the BEATLES, killing Morricone in a duel, snorting to Moroder etc etc.


Current line-up:

Martin Persner – guitar, vocals
Arvid Persner – guitar, drums
Pär Glendor – guitar, synth



Today's tune "Sway". is the first single from our upcoming release, due in early spring 2017. Video by Claudio Marino, Additional Vocals on Sway by Fia Kempe, enjoy!

Blue Stones - Black Holes


Windsor, Ontario based Blues Rock duo BLUE STONES show that two dudes really is enough to create some killer stuff, check this up!

Not having a third member to fill another rhythm role, the duo developed an original characteristic to the sounds of the bands that influenced them, such as KINGS OF LEON, MY MORNING JACKET, MUTEMATH and THE BLACK KEYS.

“We never had a bass player in our early jams, so we subconsciously compensated for one in the music,” says guitarist/vocalist Tarek Jafar.

Apparently it’s worked, the group has reached top-level sales on the popular Bandcamp.com as well as garnering over one million spins on Spotify. The duo’s music has also been featured numerous times on major network television shows such as Suits, Parks and Rec and Monday Night Football .

The BLUE STONES create a killer hi/lo effect; contrasting their slick and put together look with their rough and rollicking live show. Heart, soul and sweat characterize every BLUE STONES spectacle – you can’t help but be pulled in from the moment the first note is played.

The two are elated to have played with premiere acts and in national festivals; however, they’d like to achieve an even greater reach to bigger audiences around all of North America and the world.

“We love this too much to keep it hid in southwestern Ontario.”



BLUE STONES are:

Tarek Jafar - Vocals/Guitar
Justin Tessier - Percussion/ Back-Up Vocals



Today's tune "Black Holes" performed live in The Rock studios for The Rock Indie Show with Theresa!



With a Kick Ass video.

Appice - Monsters & Heroes


"Sinister", the first joint studio album by Carmine and Vinny Appice, "APPICE" was released on October 27 through SPV/Steamhammer as double gatefold vinyl, CD digipack, download and stream.

The official video for the albums first single, "Monsters And Heroes", can be seen below.

You're unlikely to find a phenomenon like Carmine and Vinny Appice a second time in the history of rock music. For more than forty years, the two brothers have been among the most sought-after and renowned rock drummers worldwide. Carmine and Vinny (each of them on his own) can be heard on numerous legendary albums and have toured countless times with some of the world's greatest acts. Carmine embarked on his musical path in the 1960s with the unforgotten VANILLA FUDGE, manning in the course of his illustrious career the drums for superstars such as Rod Stewart and Ozzy Osbourne, among others. His brother Vinny, who is eleven years his junior, looks back on an equally spectacular career, having worked with acts such as BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL and DIO, among others. With the exception of the live album "Drum Wars - Live!" (2014), there has been no direct collaboration between the two so far. That's about to change!

"Sinister" was recorded with the support of a number of prestigious guests. Vinny says:
  "As Ringo said: with a little help from our friends."

Jono - Crown


Swedish band JONO started as a solo project of singer Johan Norrby (hence the moniker ”JoNo”), who has been singing, writing, and playing music in various bands and projects over the years. This applies also for all the other members of the band. Guitarist Stefan Helleblad is a member of Dutch symphonic sensations WITHIN TEMPTATION, Drummer Nicka Hellenberg also played all the drums on WITHIN TEMPTATIONs "The Unforgiving" and has an impressive resume involving bands and recordings. Both keyboard player Johan Carlgren and bass player Janne Henriksson are frequently hired for both live and studio sessions. Leo Olsson – also a busy musician – joined the band in 2015.


JONO’s music is hard to pinpoint. Maybe it's best described as melodic rock with symphonic and progressive elements, always based on strong melodies with bombastic arrangements. Dynamics and a contemporary, fat sound are important ingredients in the JONO musical recipe. Their music has been said to show the influence of great artists like Queen, Supertramp, Kansas, Journey and Sparks, but above all the band has received a lot of credit and praise because of their unique sound.

The band says: 'We are very thrilled and proud about our cooperation with Frontiers Music Srl, a label which is home to so many great artists we truly respect and admire. As a band, this is an excellent opportunity to reach the international markets we've been aiming for. We can't wait to release the coming album, and of course hit the stage to be heard and seen by a wider audience, meeting with old and new fans. See you all out there!'

In 2016 the band signed a deal with Frontiers Records Srl. Next album will be released on the Frontiers label in December the 1:st
