Dracula - Queen of the Dead

The Norwegian master singer Jorn Lande takes the help of his old friend, guitarist Trond Holter, together they undertake DRACULA with both garlic and silver bullets and makes a grandiose rock opera. "

This exciting concept album was inspired by the life of Count Vlad the III, Prince of Wallachia, widely known as Vlad, The Impaler or by his patronymic name Vlad Dracul(a). The whole story explores the inner struggle inside the multifaceted and engorging character that this mysterious 15th Century personality was, while also taking into account some of the metaphysical aspects that passed into literature, forming the whole basis of the vampire mythos.

Jorn Lande – who impersonates Dracula, is the main character of the album and the female parts are sung by Norwegian singer Lena Fløitmoen (representing Mina/Lucy from the Bram Stoker book). The drama of the story reveals Dracula’s inner battle, where he still remembers what true love was, and as he wandered the Earth for centuries with a thirst for blood, his loneliness and desire to be able to love again has led him to the brink of insanity. In the original Bram Stoker version, he leaves Transylvania by ship and when he meets Lucy's best friend, she reminds him so much of his first love Mina, that he becomes obsessed. His mission is to take her as his bride, and make her Queen of the dark.

Musically, “Swing of Death” is not like a typical rock opera or musical, since it has no storyteller or too many long instrumental parts and intros. It is an album that gets to the point with no detours and even if it exposes some diverse musical landscapes, it does include catchy and melodic songs with commercial radio potential. Vocally this release gives you everything from Jorn Lande’s past extensive catalogue all in one album. Jorn’s ability to be innovative and original while at the same time showing where his roots came from, is truly unique.

Jorn and Trond’s musical influence when creating this epic masterpiece came mostly from 70’s era Meat Loaf, Queen, Alice Cooper, plus some other Classic and more contemporary Hard Rock elements. All mixed together with their own modern musical heavy rock style, Dracula “Swing of death” is something extraordinary. The lyrics are not limited to the old days of Bram Stoker’s era and could easily be a Dracula story of today.

Todays tune "Queen of the Dead" is the second single taken from "Swing Of Death".

Slipknot - Custer

SLIPKNOT have released a Live Video clip of the track "Custer" that was earlier released as a promotional single.

After all the promotional releases, "Custer" received an official retail release in late January 2015, making for the third official single.

The song begins with percussionist Shawn Crahan describing what the tempo of the song should be. The track then quickly transgresses into one that is much more deep and forceful, opening the composition. The song contains samples of the "Screaming Goat" YouTube meme with lead vocalist Corey Taylor speaking in the manner of a radio announcer.

Metal Hammer describes the work as having "an air of the self-titled about it with Sid's scratching in the background and almost poem-esque opening verse". ArtistDirect describes the tune as '"Surfacing 2015" with a massive refrain and Faith No More-esque groove that burns and blazes with evil and engaging panache'

Todays tune is SLIPKNOTs LIVE music video for "Custer", filmed at KNOTFEST USA 2014 in San Bernardino, CA. The track is taken from the latest album ".5: The Gray Chapter"

Led by charismatic singer and guitarist Conny Bloom and with a splash of beatle-esque pop-psychedelia, the quartet garnered rave reviews and built an impressive following in Europe & America.

Elvenking - The Solitaire

The evolution of ELVENKING is quite impressive. With constant quality, the Italians have become one of Europe’s leading folk band. At the same time, the band managed to refine their unique sound.

Regarding their brand new release “The Pagan Manifesto“, it’s obvious that ELVENKING – again – have exceeded themselves and deliver the most rich and mature album of their career so far. While 2012’s “Era” album marked something like a new beginning for the band, ELVENKING continue right there but also extend the folk part, revisiting releases like the debut “Heathenreel”, the follow-up “Wyrd” and 2006’s “The Winter Wake”.

“The Pagan Manifesto” is a return to the bands Pagan Roots and sees a return to their original idea, concept and sound both lyrically and musically.

Just take the 13-minute epic track “King Of The Elves”, featuring Amanda Somerville (Avantasia, Kiske/Somerville) as guest. With “Elvenlegions” (which will be the album’s first single), ELVENKING release a very special song, dedicated to their fans. Folk rules supreme in “Moonbeam Stone Circle” and “Towards The Shores” gives you the ballad feel. Whatever ELVENKING do, they do well. And with “The Pagan Manifesto”, they brought their unique sound to perfection.

ELVENKINGs music draws their inspiration from very different genres such as metal, folk, hard rock, pop, prog and classical music.

Current members:

Damnagoras – vocals
Aydan – guitars
Rafahel - guitars
Jakob – bass
Symohn – drums
Lethien – violin

Elvenking is a folk/power metal band from Sacile, Italy. As of 2014, they have released one demo, one single, and eight full-length studio albums.

Todays tune "Solitaire" is taken from the eighth studio album "The Pagan Manifesto", released in May 2014.

Toto - Orphan

The American rock band Toto have announced that March 20 is the release date for the upcoming 13th studio album "Toto XIV", in Europe, with The UK and Oceania on 3/23, and North America on March 24. The album will hit retail globally, with specific dates for territories in Asia, South America and others to follow.

Configurations for the new album will also include CD, with a deluxe edition available featuring a "making of" documentary on DVD, expanded booklet that includes an in depth story and interview about the new album alongside exclusive pictures in ecol-book packaging. Additionally Toto XIV will be available as a 2LP vinyl set, and a Super Deluxe limited edition which includes the Deluxe CD/DVD edition, 2LP vinyl, an exclusive poster, t-shirt (large size only), and lithograph.

Toto XIV is a realized vision three plus decades in the making exhibiting world-class musicianship, masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary, and melodies that the collective genius of Lukather, Paich, Porcaro, Williams and their assembled band-mates bring to life. TOTO XIV is the band’s first album of new material since 2006’s Falling In Between. However, the band personally considers the new album to be the true follow-up to TOTO IV, which made the band global superstars.

Keyboardist Steve Porcaro reveals, "This is opposite of going through the motions. We are treating this like it is Toto V, our follow-up to TOTO IV. We just want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Be true to ourselves and make the best music we can. Entertain people which is what we were put on this Earth for." Keyboardist David Paich reflects, "I think of TOTO as a unit and a band that carries a responsibility when it goes out there in to the public consciousness. There is so much negativity and darkness that I think you have to be as Quincy Jones puts it, 'beams of light that blast through the darkness'."

As they began the process of a return the studio, all of the principle long-term members brought their A-game to the table. Guitarist Steve "Luke" Lukather offers, "When you put us in a room, and everybody brings in their pieces, the next thing you know it all fits together. Everybody's performances are top notch. We are really bringing our best out, forcing ourselves to make personal best choices, what's best for the music. I'm really excited to hear what people think." Singer Joseph Williams adds, "We are talking about a band where everybody is a writer, and everybody is a lead singer, and everybody is a player. All involved brought this trio to the table where it could just live on its own."

The band will hit the ground running with an extensive European headline arena tour with appearances at key festivals. The itinerary begins in Glasgow on May 21, and takes Toto through the UK, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Italy, and Belgium. Ticket sales came out of the box with strength, with some appearances selling out within days of on-sale. A North American tour will follow in the summer of 2015. The band is also in the planning stages for their return to Asia later this year.

The last couple of years have been active, with a seven show sold-out tour of Asia that took them through Nagoya, Osaka, Tokyo, Sendai and Sapporo in April, 2014. Also that month, the 35th Anniversary Tour - Live In Poland title was released, debuting at #1 in territories across the globe. Last August and September, the band hit the road travelling across North America as co-headliners with Michael McDonald, which when it was all said and done was their most comprehensive tour on the continent in years.

Toto also continues to raise awareness for ALS, for their brother and friend, Mike Porcaro, who has been diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease. The band commits energies towards fundraising for Police and Fire Departments of California and the Fallen Heroes initiative (, and help the United Nations in their humanitarian endeavors through music.

Today's tune “Orphan” is the first single from the upcoming album "TOTO XIV", set to release on March 20.

Toto will begin an extensive European tour in support of their forthcoming new album on May 21st 2015 in Glasgow, Scotland at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Thunder - Black Water

New week and it's time to present this week's "Record of the Week".

This week's "Record Of The Week" is "Wonder Days", the latest release from the classic English hard rock band THUNDER, who originally formed in 1989 when the band TERRAPLANE broke up, leaving lead singer Danny Bowes and guitarist/main songwriter Luke Morley to form a new group, namely THUNDER. Retaining TERRAPLANE drummer Gary James (popularly known as 'Harry' James), they completed the line-up with bassist Mark 'Snake' Luckhurst and guitarist/keyboard player Ben Matthews. Though the band's main area of support has remained their homeland of the UK, they also enjoy significant success in Japan.

I really liked the old albums with THUNDER, like the classic "Backstreet Symphony" from the early 90's or "Laughing On Judgement Day" that was released a year after. That THUNDER returns with a new album as strong as this would never cross my mind.

"Wonder Days" feels like time has stood still since they released the classic tunes back in the 90's. The new album has a pretty good sound where the melodies and harmonies can collaborate with ease. That it sounds old occasionally is only positive, it swings without becoming mossy. Danny Bowes may not be the best singer, but for THUNDER he is invaluable. His voice is so strongly associated with this band so anything else would feel wrong. Wonder if THUNDERs formula to sound as fresh as they do is to have a break in their career. The album echo's of influences of band like old BLIND FAITH, LED ZEPPELIN and CHUCK BERRY, interesting mix.

To sum it up with a two words... Buy It!

It’s with a big pleasure to have the five-piece band back.

A grandiose bundle can be found on Thunder website

Todays tune is a stripped-back version of "Black Water" at Planet Rock Live Session! The track is taken from this weeks "Record Of The Week"

Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane

Sunday, time for a classic tune.

"Rock You Like a Hurricane" is a song by the German hard rock band Scorpions. The song was released as the second track of their 1984 album Love at First Sting.

The racetrack depicted on the single's sleeve corresponds to the Circuito Permanente de Jerez, located in Spain.

The lyrics of "Rock You Like a Hurricane" also reference the title of the album on which it originally appeared – Love at First Sting. 

A new version was recorded in 2000 as "Hurricane 2000" on the album Moment of Glory, featuring Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra backing the track. In the same way, it was titled "Hurricane 2001" when played on the follow-up Acoustica. A third re-recording by the band features on their album Comeblack, released in 2011.

In terms of ’80s metal classics, however, the tune is the Platonic ideal: a headbanging-worthy repeating riff, gigantic drums, a ripping solo and an indelible refrain—sing it now—‘Here I am / Rock you like a hurricane.’

Although the official video is full of ’80s clichés (women dressed as animals, actual zoo animals, absurd sci-fi flourishes), the campy edge of the music never overshadows the ferocious nature of the song. Heck, ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ even sounds badass when interpreted by an orchestra: Just try to stop yourself from fist-pumping while watching this video of the band performing with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear

I Love You, Honeybear is the second studio album from American folk musician Josh Tillman under the pseudonym Father John Misty released on February 10, 2015 on Sub Pop. Produced by both Tillman and Jonathan Wilson, this is Tillman's second studio album since his departure from Fleet Foxes. The album was also mixed by Phil Ek, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound. According to Tillman, the release is a concept album.

I Love You, Honeybear was recorded in 2013 and 2014 in Los Angeles. The album was produced by Jonathan Wilson and was mixed by Phil Ek and mastered at Sterling Sound.

Josh Tillman described I Love You, Honeybear as a concept album about himself. The album deals with Tillman's personal life, including him "engaging in all manner of regrettable behavior," as well as his relation with his wife Emma. Because of the album's raw, personal nature, Tillman worried about playing the songs live and initially had a hard time playing those songs to people close to him.

Limited Edition 2x12", LP Tri-Color Vinyl

Todays tune "I Love You, Honey Bear" was filmed live at the Neptune Theatre. Recorded on January 24, 2013.

The Black Keys - Weight of Love

"Weight of Love" is the latest departure by American rock duo THE BLACK KEYS eighth studio album "Turn Blue".

"Weight of Love" catchy blues rock with tender vocal from Daniel Auerbach.

The Black Keys are an American rock duo formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). The duo began as an independent act, recording music in basements and self-producing their records, before they eventually emerged as one of the most popular garage rock artists during a second wave of the genre's revival in the 2010s. The band's raw blues rock sound draws heavily from Auerbach's blues influences, including Junior Kimbrough, Howlin' Wolf, and Robert Johnson.

Todays tune "Weight of Love" is taken from THE BLACK KEYS latest album "Turn Blue". The tune is a slow-burning album opener that, at almost seven minutes, clocks in as the record’s longest song. The video itself begins with a short snippet of "Fever" then follows a cult of women led by supermodel Lara Stone; the religious imagery and idyllic landscapes aren't too of a piece with the song's lyrics, but they do echo the track's soulful overtones.
