Tribulation - The Lament

The Swedish death metallers TRIBULATION are back with a brand new cut "The Lament" taken from the upcoming album "Down Below" will be released on January 26th, 2018.

The band formed in 2005 in Arvika, Sweden. In early 2009, the band released its debut studio album "The Horror". Their second full length studio album "The Formulas of Death" was released in 2013. In 2015, they released their third full length studio album "Children of the Night". Though their debut album sits firmly within the old school death metal genre, their later albums are a radical departure from this sound, drawing significantly on traditional heavy metal, psychedelic rock, gothic rock, as well as the occult and supernatural mythology. The fourth album "Down Below" will be released next year. Preceding the album release they are releasing an EP "Lady Death" that will be released on December 22nd.

Some Comments on the producer and director of the latest Video, Robert Piel.

"We always plant strange seeds, seeds that when fully grown and ripened have taken their own often unexpected twists and turns. When working with this video we got to share that process with someone else who is also planting strange seeds. Director and producer Robert Piel approached us and wanted to make a collaboration, which was something that we gladly accepted after seeing his previous work and after seeing how well we got along and how our cinematic references really overlapped. It’s rare that you find people who have that creative spark that lacks in most of us and the discipline to fully get the job done. Robert and his entire crew had that! They all put a lot of effort and work into this and we all gladly endured the long and cold German nights. We hope you all enjoy our artistic amalgamation!"

The art on the EP and Album is done by Jonathan Hultén.

The album will be available in the following formats:

Deluxe LP with heavy stock gatefold sleeve, 180 gram vinyl and LP-booklet

Strictly limited box set with gatefold LP, art prints, slipmat, patch, signed autograph card and bonus 12” MLP with silk screen print on side B

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 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.”


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

Night - Raft of the World

Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"Raft of the World" is the third album by the Swedish rockers NIGHT .

A band that mixing an old school rock with classic NWOBHM, with good and groovy songs, great rock vocals and bombastic riffs makes these guys third release a real joy to play. The new album holds 9 tunes of pure rock music were the band explores new territories and reconnects with the force that burns strong within.
The record opens up with the masterpiece "Fire Across The Sky", magic intro riffing and souring rocky vocals, a tune that set's the starting point of how things will sound like on the rest of the album. "Surrender" keeps the pace and it's a very melodic piece with great riffs and a rhythm section that really delivers a great soundscape. And it follows up with the more bombastic "Under the Gallows". A bassline that smooths the tune with it's white glows, a real groovy guitar solo that kicks ass! The short acoustic one minute "Omberg" is really nice. "Time", the first single and today's tune is a classic rocker. "Strike Of Lightning" another rocker with a stomping melody, great signing. The tempo rises in the next upbeat tune "Winds" where the bassist and drummer are in the spotlight, amazing tune! "Coin In A Fountain" have a old Western movie feeling, half paced, touchy and emotional, slow and very beautiful. The album closes on high ground with "Where Silence Awaits", wailing twin guitars, great hocks, groovy rhythms and scream vocals. 

Sum: "Raft Of The World" is great album if you dig the early NWOBHM-inspired Swedish heavy metal then this is for you. Recommended!

NIGHT are:

Oskar Andersson - vocals & guitar
Calle Englund - guitar
Sammy Ouirra - bass

Today's tune "Time" is taken from Nights third album "Raft of the World", released 1st of September on The Sign Records.

John Mellencamp - Jack & Diane

Sunday, time for a classic!

"Jack & Diane" is a 1982 hit rock song written and performed by American singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, then performing as "John Cougar." It appears on Mellencamp's album "American Fool".

According to Mellencamp, "Jack & Diane" was based on the 1962 Tennessee Williams film Sweet Bird of Youth. He said of recording the song: "'Jack & Diane' was a terrible record to make. When I play it on guitar by myself, it sounds great; but I could never get the band to play along with me. That's why the arrangement's so weird. Stopping and starting, it's not very musical." Mellencamp has also stated that the clapping wasn't supposed to be included in the finished song. It was recorded with the clapping in order to help keep tempo and then it was to be removed. However, he realized the song did not work without it.

The song was recorded at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida, was produced by Mellencamp and Don Gehman (with Gehman also engineering), and backing Mellencamp were guitarists/backing vocalists Mick Ronson, Mike Wanchic, Larry Crane, drummer Kenny Aronoff, bassist/backing vocalist Robert Frank, and keyboardist Eric Rosser.

In 1982, producer and guitarist Mick Ronson worked with Mellencamp on his "American Fool" album, and in particular on "Jack & Diane." In a 2008 interview with Classic Rock magazine, Mellencamp recalled:

"Mick was very instrumental in helping me arrange that song, as I'd thrown it on the junk heap. Ronson came down and played on three or four tracks and worked on the American Fool record for four or five weeks. All of a sudden, for 'Jack & Diane,' Mick said 'Johnny, you should put baby rattles on there.' I thought, 'What the fuck does put baby rattles on the record mean?' So he put the percussion on there and then he sang the part 'let it rock, let it roll' as a choir-ish-type thing, which had never occurred to me. And that is the part everybody remembers on the song. It was Ronson's idea."

The opening guitar riff and drum beat of "Jack & Diane" were sampled as a hook on Jessica Simpson's single "I Think I'm In Love With You", released in the summer of 2000, as well as "Rock Me" by AZ and Jermaine Dupri, released in 1998.

The song is parodied in The Simpsons episode "Three Gays of the Condo", when "Weird Al" Yankovic serenades Homer with a new version about Homer and Marge to convince him to move back home. A new version about TV credits plays during the credits. At The Simpsons Take the Hollywood Bowl, he would perform a full version of the parody.

Enjoy today's classic!

SPACESLUG was formed in Wrocław, Poland, 2015 by guitarist Bartosz Janik and drummer Kamil Ziółkowski and then completed by bassist Jan Rutka. Together they started their biggest musical journey through space, time and multiuniverses.

Pink Cream 69 - Walls Come Down

"Headstrong" marks the 30th Anniversary of German hard rockers PINK CREAM 69 and what better way to celebrate than by adding yet another gem to their already spectacular discography! Produced by bassist (and renowned producer) Dennis Ward, "Headstrong" sees the same line-up from 2013’s well received “Ceremonial” album return to deliver their 12th studio album overall. And as a special treat, the new release includes a bonus live album featuring songs from across the band’s catalogue.

PINK CREAM 69 was founded in 1987 by singer Andi Deris, guitarist Alfred Koffler, drummer Kosta Zafiriou, who were later joined by bassist Dennis Ward. Deris left the band in 1994 and after auditioning various singers was replaced by Englishman David Readman. In 2001, news emerged that guitarist Alfred Koffler suffered from Focal Dystonia, a serious disease that affected his left hand and his playing. For their upcoming live shows, the band recruited second guitarist Uwe Reitenauer to help out Alfred on stage and he would eventually become a full-time member. Drummer Chris Schmidt would later step in after the departure of Zafirou in 2012.

Tunelist for "Headstrong":

We Bow To None
Walls Come Down
Unite And Divide
No More Fear
Man Of Sorrow
Path Of Destiny
Vagrant Of The Night

Satyricon - Deep Calleth Upon Deep

Monday, new week, time to present "Record Of The Week"

"Deep Calleth Upon Deep" is the ninth opus by the Norwegian black metal duo SATYRICON.

The career path of band has been far and wide thru the years. Something that I always have seen as a positive thing and "Deep Calleth Upon Deep" is the next step in development, one that has become more mature and thoughtful. The album is well crafted and excellent executed album, even if the guys made a bold decision to step outside the comfort zone for most metal fans I almost sure that most of them will love this. “This is a new beginning, a new chapter. The rules of the game have changed.”

"Deep Calleth Upon Deep" is an emotionally and deep album, it oozes with sorrow, death and deeply hided aggression. The first tune that get's some air when the clear vinyl takes a spin is "Midnight Serpent", a heavy and fast piece in a more typical SATYRICON manners. Satyr spits and sputters and Forst moves forward like a maniac snowplow through the night and shows that he still can play the drums! "Blood Cracks Open the Ground" keeps the pace but takes a new turn with a progressive metal approach and where Frost get's to be in the center with his furious drumming, hell yeah the tune swings great. The title tune "Deep Calleth Upon Deep" is deep, black and heavy as we want it. "The Ghost Of Rome" is like a melodic explosion of black metal and progressive metal, suprb tune that will be glommed to your head forever! The frosty "To Your Brethren In The Dark" is the first single and today's tune, where the black metal hymns reminds us of the past. The wonderfully melodic monotonous sound lifts this tune to a new level and is one of the highlights on the album along with the gorgeous black metal masterpiece "Black Wings and Withering Gloom" that reflects the history of the band in a magical way. "Dissonant" does the band dip there black metal toes in a avant garde jazz territory and somehow they manage to keep the focus and creativity high and interesting. "Burial Rite" closes up the album with an progressive battery of constrained fury, repetitive riffing and heavy drumming.

The masters Satyr and Frost possess knowledge of deep truth and reality behind the darkest art of metal and have created an excellent album, don't miss it.

Recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during the early months of 2017 and mixed in collaboration with esteemed studio guru Mike Fraser (who previously worked with the band on Now, Diabolical in 2006) . The front cover is an obscure drawing from 1898 by perhaps the greatest Norwegian artist of all time, Edvard Munch.

Today's tune "To Your Brethren In The Dark" is taken from "Deep Calleth Upon Deep". Video is Directed by LABAN, Featuring Tonya Cornelisse, Jesse Hotchkiss, Shawn Kathryn Kane, Diana Wyenn, Cameraman and Drone Operator: Jeff Morris, Editor: Brandon M. Kelly, Production Company: Plain Wood Productions.

The James Gang - Funk #49

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Funk #49" is a tune by the American rock band THE JAMES GANG.

"Funk #49" became a staple of Album Oriented Rock and Classic Rock radio, but it wasn't the biggest chart hit for THE JAMES GANG - that would be "Walk Away," which made #51 in 1971 and was later reworked for Walsh's 1976 solo album "You Can't Argue with a Sick Mind". "Funk #49" is one of Joe Walsh's most popular songs, and by the mid-'70s he admitted that he couldn't stand playing it any more, but did so because fans loved it.

Walsh wrote this song with his bandmates, drummer Jim Fox and bass player Dale Peters. The song is about a girlfriend whose wild ways the singer just can't tame (the female equivalent of Joe Walsh's character in his solo hit "Life's Been Good"). There isn't much in the way of lyrics, as the song is mostly a showcase for Walsh's guitar work. He explained in the book The Guitar Greats, "I came up with the basic guitar lick, and the words never really impressed me intellectually, but they seemed to fit somehow. It was a real good example of how we put things together, bearing in mind that it was a three piece group, and I don't think that there was any overdubbing. The only thing we really added was the percussion middle part, which the three of us actually played, putting some parts on top of the drums, but that's the three piece James Gang, and that's the energy and kind of the symmetry we were all about."

THE JAMES GANG was an American rock band formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966. The band enjoyed moderate success with the singles "Funk #49" and "Walk Away," and are perhaps best remembered as the first popular band to feature the guitarist/vocalist Joe Walsh, who became solo musician and later a member of the EAGLES.

Enjoy todays classic!

Lynch Mob - Miles Away

"The Brotherhood" is the latest release by the American hard rock band LYNCH MOB, featuring former DOKKEN guitarist George Lynch, who has been the band's only permanent member.

"The Brotherhood" is produced by Chris "The Wizard" Collier (LYNCH MOB; FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, PRONG, KXM), the album features eleven brand new hard rock tracks from LYNCH MOB. "The Brotherhood” highlights the unique pairing of Oni Logan and George Lynch, and along with Sean McNabb (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums).

On the subject of LYNCH MOBs new record, Oni Logan comments, “After doing quite a few miles together with this latest line-up of Sean McNabb and Jimmy D’Anda, we consider ourselves a pack of wolves, and we came up with the name "The Brotherhood" for the title of the next LYNCH MOB album. It’s got more of an adventurous sound in part and maybe a darker, colder sound to it. We are always willing to go farther. We come from the early 90’s and it's when we released the first LYNCH MOB album which set a sound and course for us. Here we are 27 years later, George and I are still able to keep on stretching. As a player, as a writer, that is very important to us. Otherwise we would be fooling ourselves and fooling you”.

George Lynch adds, "We wrote this album as a band and the name of the record reflects what the band is about, and what all my bands have been about since I've been a kid. This is my second family. These are my brothers. You go through a lot together and have a lot of experiences together. And that then becomes a part of the music."

Today's tune is the melodic album finale "Miles Away" taken from the latest and the eighth album "The Brotherhood", released September 08, 2017. The Video was Produced, directed and edited by Jamie Brown for Smoking Gun Inc. Director of photography Sebastien Paquet.
