Nelson - After the Rain


Sunday, time for a classic.

NELSON is an American rock band founded by singer/songwriters Matthew and Gunnar Nelson (twin sons of Ricky Nelson and Kristin Nelson). The band achieved success during the early 1990s with their double platinum debut album After the Rain, which featured the number-one hit "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection".



NELSON members:

Matthew Nelson – lead and back-up vocals, bass, electric, 12-string, and acoustic guitars,
Gunnar Nelson – lead and back-up vocals, rhythm, 12-string,
Brett Garsed – all intercontinental lead guitars, rhythm, acoustic 6 and 12-strings, back-up vocals,
Paul Mirkovich – all keyboards, grand piano, strings, back-up vocals,
Bobby Rock – drums,
Joey Cathcart – additional vocals and instrumental expertise

Video of the song that gives name to the production of the NELSON brothers in 1990, this song came to Guinness Book of Records after to be the third generation of his family to have a record in a number one of charts.

After finishing the touring cycle for "After the Rain", the band found themselves in massive debt despite the album's success. NELSON returned to the studio and recorded their second album, Imaginator, but it was rejected by their producer and the label for being too dark and heavy. Shelving that album, the band recorded a new collection of songs which became their second release "Because They Can" 5 years after their debut in 1995. By this time fans had moved on, and the record failed to chart, bringing to NELSONs relationship with the label to an end.

Enjoy today's tune!

Dukes Of The Orient - Seasons Will Change


What do you get when you match a Brit from London who loves American AOR with an American from California who grew up on British Prog? DUKES OF THE ORIENT is the masterful pairing of vocalist John Payne (ex-ASIA, GPS) with keyboardist Erik Norlander (LAST IN LINE, LANA LANE) who now present their eponymous debut album, ten years in the making. Payne’s powerful arena-seasoned vocals carry soaring melodies and lush harmonies over the sea of classic synthesizers and keyboards artfully painted with Norlander’s signature sonic palette.

The two are backed by a world-renown ensemble of top musicians including Jeff Kollman, Guthrie Govan, Moni Scaria and Bruce Bouillet on guitar and Jay Schellen on drums. Payne provides bass guitar and additional lead and rhythm guitar parts to complete the audiophile production. The album was mixed on a traditional analog console to preserve and enhance the natural depth, clarity and soul of the tracks with great care taken to avoid over-compression, extreme equalization and distortion.



DUKES OF THE ORIENT has its origins in 2007 as “ASIA Featuring John Payne,” a band that continued on after ASIA keyboardist, Geoff Downes, left to re-form the original 1982 lineup. Payne recruited Norlander to join Guthrie Govan and Jay Schellen for tour dates in the US and initial recordings, some of which endured to appear on the DUKES OF THE ORIENT album here. Govan left the band to form THE ARISTOCRATS and was replaced by guitarist Bruce Bouillet followed by Jeff Kollman and Moni Scaria. The final lineup resulted in the track, “Seasons Will Change,” released as a video in 2013 and also now appears on the DUKES OF THE ORIENT album. Following the death of original ASIA vocalist, John Wetton, in early 2017, Payne and Norlander decided that these recordings should give birth to a new band, both out of respect for Wetton and for clarity with the Downes-led “ASIA”.

DUKES OF THE ORIENT releases their eponymous debut album with stunning cover art by Rodney Matthews on February 23, 2018 with select tour dates to follow.

Enjoy today's tune "Seasons Will Change".

Type O Negative - Love You To Death


Valentines day, a day when you date your sweetheart, give her flowers, buy her a gift, diamond ring, chocolate and dinner. I have booked table at a very good restaurant where we will spend this evening, eating good food, drink something really good and keep the romance at the top :)

Todays't tune “Love You to Death” is a tune by TYPE O NEGATIVE, With lyrics about a man trying to prove himself as a worthy lover, the late Peter Steele wrote many dark songs with themes of romance, depression and death, leading the band to be nicknamed “The Drab Four.”

The tune is taken from the fourth studio album "October Rust". It was released in 1996. The album has more ballads and less of the doom metal sound of previous or subsequent albums. It also features a much heavier cover of Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl."


It is the first of the band's albums with a "joke intro"; in this case, the intro, "Bad Ground", is 38 seconds of low-level buzzing, meant to sound as if the listener's speakers are incorrectly plugged in. The second and fifteenth tracks are humorous untitled intros and outros to the album, respectively, with the band downplaying the recording of the album. Another production technique employed on the album is the use of very abrupt endings and segues to a few of the songs, like "Green Man", "Red Water" and "Haunted".

Happy Valentines days folks.

Papa Roach - Born For Greatness


PAPA ROACH has released a new music video for "Born For Greatness". The track is taken from the band's ninth studio album, "Crooked Teeth", which was released last May.


Featuring galvanizing performances from Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham, Jen Bricker and Jean Sok — three talented individuals who refuse to be limited by physical challenges — the clip is a testament to the limitless possibilities within all of us.

"This video is to showcase to the world that no matter your struggle and/or adversity, you are born for greatness," says PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix.

Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham was born with spina bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord. Fotheringham has gone on to become a professional WCMX (wheelchair motocross) athlete. He completed the first ever wheelchair front flip while touring the world with Nitro Circus.

Jen Bricker was born without legs and her heart on the opposite side of her chest. "Never say can't" is her motto. The professional aerialist has toured the world and performed with global superstars, including Britney Spears.

Jean Sok is a breakdancer with only one leg. Employing "b-boy" style techniques, Sok incorporates his crutches into his moves, using them as an extension of his arms. He gained international acclaim as a performer for Cirque Du Soliel's "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour" and "Michael Jackson One".



PAPA ROACH will tour with A DAY TO REMEMBER in February and March before launching a North American headline tour with support from NOTHING MORE and ESCAPE THE FATE on April 5, see the dates below.

Magnum - Lost On The Road To Eternity


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

The British rockers have released their 20th studio recording "Lost On The Road To Eternity" by the group MAGNUM surrounding founder members Bob Catley (vocals) and Tony Clarkin (guitar) since their 1978 debut "Kingdom Of Madness". At the same time, Clarkin, Catley and bassist Al Barrow are set to introduce their current line-up featuring new additions Rick Benton (keyboards) and Lee Morris (drums). Benton joined the MAGNUM camp in December 2016 to replace long-standing member Mark Stanway, while Morris took over from Harry James only a few months ago.

"Lost On The Road To Eternity" sees British hard rock band MAGNUM celebrate a very special anniversary in 2018.


40 years as a rock band is pretty awesome, not many band reach that milestone. And in that time, since their debut record, they have made their own sound, you could say that they earned the right to a "MAGNUM” sound, like AC/DC sounds like AC/DC, IRON MAIDEN sounds like IRON MAIDEN and so on. "Lost On The Road To Eternity" sounds... well MAGNUM!

The album contains eleven new songs, among them the first single release "Without Love", a tune that doesn’t sound like classic MAGNUM, but you will recognize Bob Catley peculiar voice. Even the sound and melody doesn’t follow the typical melodic pattern, instead it flows on a groovy cloud with a funky beat, not bad at all, I do like this step outside the ordinary comfort zone. The title tune "Lost On The Road To Eternity" features vocals from both Bob Catley and Tobias Sammet (EDGUY & AVANTASIA), kinda natural for him to contribute here as they have been working together on AVANTASIA. It’s a fantastic powerful tune! "Show Me Your Hands" is a bouncy modern MAGNUM classic. Beautiful keys by Benton starts "Storm Baby", a softer approach before the tempo rises for a time until it sets back to it's originally beauty. "Peaches and Cream" is a catchy, gentle and very melodic piece, and the opposite of the right sublime tune "Welcome to the Cosmic Cabaret" where the melodic parts really flows out from the classic template that MAGNUM usually adopts, a song that certainly would have been significantly longer, but unfortunately, shortened to only 8 minutes, sad, why not give it all. The song is a piece of art, could easy be the theme for the cover of the album. "Tell Me What You’ve Got to Say" follows the more classic style, powerful melody with wonderful low chugging riff. "Ya Wanna Be Someone" is a straight catchy rocker. "Forbidden Masquerade" continues in the more classic MAGNUM template, great singing, great melody and great guitar playing. Keys and Guitars opens up "Glory to Ashes", an half paced powerful piece, with amazing playing and fine poetic vocals. "King of the World" closes this package grandiose, bluesy licks with big choruses.

The release will once again be complemented by Rodney Matthews's atmospheric cover artwork.



Sum:

"Lost On The Road To Eternity" is remarkable consistency album by this British institution, absolutely well worth revisiting!


MAGNUM are scheduled to embark on a major European tour from January to April 2018, see all the dates below.


Today's tune "Without Love" is taken from "Lost On The Road To Eternity", released 19 January 2018.

Current members

Steve Brown – lead guitar, harmonica, backing vocals (1983–1995, 2007–present)

Mark "Gus" Scott – drums, percussion, backing vocals (1984–1995, 2007–present)

In December 1990 TRIXTER filmed the video for the second single, "One in a Million", at a sold-out show in Rockland County, New York. The band also recorded a song, "One Mo Time", for the film If Looks Could Kill. The song featured Edgar Winter on saxophone. By January 1991 the record was selling 20,000 units per week.[citation needed] The video for "One in a Million" went No. 1 on MTV for three weeks.

Bring Me The Horizon - Don't Go


"There Is a Hell, Believe Me, I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret", is the third studio album by the British rock band BRING ME THE HORIZON. It was released on 4 October 2010 by Visible Noise. The album was produced by Fredrik Nordstrom and Henrick Udd at IF Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden, with additional work at Sunset Lodge Studios in Los Angeles, California.


From the album we pick one of the darkest tunes "Don't Go", a song that is based on a 17-year old boy (Terry Hurst) was murdered by 3 friends on a overnight camping trip. Terry was bullied, had learning difficulties, and was orphan as well as his brothers. The three "friends" tricked him. Took him to a forest. They knew he was defenceless. Put a plastic bad around his head. Repeatedly stabbed him 60+ times with 5 ft. scythes. Stomped on him. Let him there to rot. No one knew why they did it. It says that one of the murderers was Ollie's (BMTH lead singer) cousin.

So check it out!

Eminem - Walk On Water


Thursday, it's my daughters birthday, she is starting to get old now, time flys fast. She had a few request, clothes, make ups, thai food and Eminem :) Well I guess as a good father and together with her mom we needed to try to do our best to grant her requests. To not brag to much, But I am a very proud parent of this gorgeous child, a kid that really stands up for the family, help out when needed, you know walk the dog, take care of her little sister and once in awhile even the dishes :)

So for today play a tune for her, by request.

"Walk on Water" is a song by American rapper Eminem, released on November 10, 2017. It was released as the lead single from Eminem's ninth solo studio album "Revival" (2017). The song, produced by Rick Rubin and Skylar Grey, features vocals from American singer Beyoncé.




The song started as a hook written by Skylar Grey, who also wrote Eminem's 2010 hit single "Love the Way You Lie". Eminem came across the hook when he was working with Rick Rubin and became enamored of the lyrics. Previously Rubin and Eminem had been discussing the phenomenon of mumble rap, specifically Eminem's frustration with its mainstream popularity, and the hook served as a vehicle for him to vent them. Rubin subsequently played the song for Jay-Z, who was then able to get his wife, Beyoncé, to sing the chorus. Upon the release of the single, Grey tweeted, "This is the song I've been trying to write since age 6. Every time I wrote a song I hoped it would be this good. I am truly proud of everything I've created, but this is the one."

On December 23, 2017, the music video for the song was released exclusively on Apple Music and Eminem's official Vevo channel. It was directed by American director Richard "Rich" Lee, who previously directed Eminem's videos for "Not Afraid", "Rap God", "The Monster" and "Phenomenal". As of January 29, 2018, the video has over 31 million views and 800.000 likes.


The song was first performed by Eminem at the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards on November 12 with co-producer and writer Skylar Grey on vocals. Both also performed the song on Saturday Night Live on November 18.

Eminem will soon hit the road, see all the tour dates below.

Happy Birthday kiddo, this one is for you, love you, dad!

Stone Temple Pilots - Roll Me Under


STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have released "Roll Me Under", the second single off their upcoming self-titled album, due out March 18. It's featuring the vocals of one-time "The X Factor" contestant Jeff Gutt, who made his live debut as STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' new vocalist during a SiriusXM special event at the Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles.

The blues-inflected, riff-heavy track is nothing surprising from the Pilots, and in line with the ethos of their first Gutt-era single “Meadow,” which was released in November.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS will release their first album with new singer Jeff Gutt in March. Hear the band's latest track, "Roll Me Under", see and hear it below.



"'Roll Me Under' was one of the first songs I wrote for the album, and one of the first Jeff sang on too," said STP bassist Robert DeLeo. "Those riffs have been kicking around in my head for years, and it felt like the right time to record and perform it."

"Roll Me Under" and "Meadow" will both be part of the new STONE TEMPLE PILOTS LP, the band's first full-length since 2010 – and their first since the death of former lead singer Scott Weiland in 2015. "The new album feels like a completed journey for the band," Robert DeLeo explained. "The record breathes resilience. A lot of life has been funneled into this body of music."

Following the album's release, Gutt will join STONE TEMPLE PILOTS on a North American tour, see the dates below. According to Dean DeLeo, the set lists during shows will be wide-ranging. "We would like to cover a fair amount of material, possibly diggin' into songs we've never played live," he told Rolling Stone.

"We can all can expect STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' classics done with respect to the members still here and the ones that aren't," Gutt added. "It's important to me that these legacies stay intact and are celebrated, and to continue the musical journey of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS with the new music."

Today's tune "Roll Me Under" is taken from the upcoming self-titled album. Enjoy!

You can’t design rock´n`roll at the drawing board. You have to feel it from within, be really passionate if you want to play this music authentically and convincingly.

Flo ´The Fly` Kraemer, guitarist with Berlin rock group TRAVELIN JACK, refers to this phenomenon as “self-entertainment”, putting his band’s philosophy in a nutshell. He and his three comrades-in-arms, vocalist Alia Spaceface, bassist Steve Burner and drummer Montgomery Shell, are prototypes of passionate rock musicians who won’t be deterred from following their chosen path. “We don’t care what other people think about us, whether we rub them the wrong way or polarise,” says Kraemer. “We do what we believe in and what we enjoy most.” This enthusiasm and their uncompromising attitude is the seed that has borne fruit on their album Commencing Countdown.



TRAVELIN JACK is a Hard Rock Band from Berlin that is mostly inspired by Rock Music of the 70s, such as SLADE, AC/DC, DEEP PURPLE and David Bowie, with a profound love for glitter, platform shoes and high power performances.


Today's tune "Keep On Running" is taken from the latest album "Commencing Countdown", released September 08th, 2017.

Saxon - Thunderbolt


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

"Thunderbolt" is the 22nd album by the British Nwobhm band SAXON, 22 album, that’s a hell of an accomplishment. The first album came out in 1979, almost 40 years ago.

They are considered one of the classic metal acts and have influenced many bands such as METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, MÖTLEY CRUE, PANTERA among others.

During the 1980s SAXON established themselves as one of Europe's biggest metal acts. The band tours regularly and have sold more than 13 million albums worldwide.


"Thunderbolt" is a Storming Smashing Thundering collection of tunes they have crafted with Producer Andy Sneap. Stand clear and fasten your seat belts! "Thunderbolt" is the follow-up to 2015’s "Battering Ram", the same formula is used, classic hard-charging heavy metal in the traditional NWOBHM style. The album opens up with the instrumental intro "Olympus Rising" and continues with the title tune "Thunderbolt" where the band puts in a higher gear, commanding guitar riff by Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt, hard hitting drums by Nigel Glockler, quick fingers on the bass strings by Nibbs Carter and the peculiar voice by Byford on this galloping rocker, it's also the main stamp we hear throughout the album, including tunes like "The Secret of Flight", "Speed Merchants", or the marching "Sniper" and the Motörhead tribute "They Played Rock and Roll". The dramatic tale of the creature of the night in "Nosferatu (The Vampires Waltz)" is horror rocker with organ intro before it shapes into a pompous creation. Byford sings like a god on this track. "Predator" is a real monster, hard and heavy guitar-oriented tune with a grizzled rhythm section and a guest growls by AMON AMARTHs Johan Hegg makes this a tune that stands out from the standard NWOBHM style. The mythological stories in "Sons of Odin" and "A Wizard’s Tale" where we get powerful vocals, strong drums and excellent guitars. The album closes up with "Roadie’s Song", a tune about the tour life for the band, a nice ending.


Sum "Thunderbolt" is a solid rocker with classic catchy tunes, a delight for SAXON fans and traditional heavy metal enthusiasts alike.

Today's tune is the title tune from "Thunderbolt", released February 2nd, enjoy!

Vinnie Vincent Invasion - Love Kills


Sunday, time for a classic.

Vinnie Vincent has been a lost soul for a very long time since he quit working for KISS and his solo project Vinne Vincent Invasion, now he reveals him self and did his first public performance in over 20 years!

Vinnie Vincent is best-known for having been a member of the band KISS, when he was hired to replace Ace Frehley, but he was in several bands before that. The Vinnie Vincent Invasion was formed by him in 1984. This is the group's best remembered song, and it's mainly notable for being the theme song for the motion picture Nightmare On Elm Street 4, which got it air time on MTV. The lyrics compare the end of a love to dying.




Today’s tune "Love Kills” is taken from the second and final studio album "All Systems Go”, released on May 17, 1988. All Systems Go featured new vocalist Mark Slaughter, who replaced Robert Fleischman. The band toured in support for the album, headlining small clubs, but broke up after the completion of the tour at the end of August 1988. The album features Yngwie Malmsteen's vocalist Jeff Scott Soto on backing vocals.



This was filmed January 21, 2018. This was the last day for him in Atlanta at the Atlanta Expo Hall.



Here some jamming with Robert Fleischman!

The Atomic Bitchwax - Houndstooth


The American riff rockers THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX did released their seventh full-length LP "Force Field” on December last year.

The first tune of the album resulted in the video ”Houndstooth”, see it below.

The band is from New Jersey, formed in 1993 by bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik. THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX mixes elements of 1960s psychedelic rock and 1970s riff rock, filtered though modern progressive rock. Their music has appeared in popular TV shows including Jackass, Home Wrecker and various Fox Sports broadcasts.


"Force Field” is featuring the powerhouse rhythm section from legendary space lords MONSTER MAGNET. Recorded at the Freakshop in Keyport, New Jersey, mixed at The Panic Room in Ocean, New Jersey and mastered by Alan Douches (CHELSEA WOLFE, TOMBS, THE OBSESSED), "Force Field" sees THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX's high energy, scale-based guitar mangling hitting astronomical levels, with full stack amps pushing out dangerous levels of blown-out metallic mayhem. An awe-inducing tumult of head-down forward drive and top tier hard rock, "Force Field" mashes sci-fi and hi-fi, rocketing THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX into the outer reaches of the modern-day heavy music universe.

Today’s tune ”Houndstooth”, taken from the bands latest release "Force Field”, enjoy!

Ghostpoet - Immigrant Boogie


Dark Days + Canapés is the fourth album by British vocalist and musician Ghostpoet.

Ghostpoets single "Immigrant Boogie”, pitch-black post-punk guitars, distorted synths that is filled with the sense of impending doom, the tune sees Obaro Ejimiwe telling a first person account of a difficult journey across borders.

A piece of music where it’s hard to set a label on it. A quick referens, a young and sober Tom Waits with struggling minds, trying to make sense of an ever-increasingly technologically connected, but lonesome world.


Obaro Ejimiwe (18 January 1983) is a British vocalist and musician better known by his stage name Ghostpoet. His first album, Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, was shortlisted for the 2011 Mercury Prize. His 2015 album, Shedding Skin was also nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. Ghostpoet's fourth album Dark Days + Canapés was released on 18 August 2017.



In April 2017 Ghostpoet released the single "Immigrant Boogie" released via Play It Again, Sam. The track was produced by Leo Abrahams and mixed by Leo and Kristofer Harris. The track is the first from the album Dark Days + Canapés.

Today’s tune ”Immigrant Boogie” is taken from the new album "Dark Days + Canapés”, the single was released in April 2017, enjoy!.

Shooter Jennings feat. Marilyn Manson - Cat People


Thursday, time for a cover.

"Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" is a song sung by David Bowie, the title song of the 1982 film Cat People. Recorded in July 1981, the song was written by Bowie with producer Giorgio Moroder. A re-recorded version of the song appears on the album Let's Dance.

To day we have a Harrowing Bowie Cover where animals attack, apocalypse draws near in eerie, sprawling animated clip for "Cat People”, see below.

Shooter Jennings and Marilyn Manson’s made a brooding cover. Jennings and Manson's version of "Cat People" appears on the former's recent LP, Countach (For Giorgio), a covers collection featuring songs by electronic-music pioneer, Giorgio Moroder. Moroder and Bowie wrote "Cat People" for the film of the same name, but also reimagined it for Bowie's 1983 album, Let's Dance.



Marilyn Manson: David Bowie 'Changed My Life Forever' "Every song of Bowie was a way for me to communicate to others," Manson writes. "It was a sedative. An arousal. A love letter I could never have written"

Directed by Valenberg and Blake Judd, the clip plays out like a NSFW 16-bit noir centered around a mysterious spate of brutal animal attacks and a group of renegade women who flee Hollywood with Jennings and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. The "Cat People" clip also boasts several references to Bowie, including a mural of him as Ziggy Stardust, and a shot of him as the blind prophet in the "Blackstar" video.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Jennings explained how the collaboration with Manson came about: "I invited him out to a party at this bar, and I said, 'Hey, you know 'Cat People'? You want to do that song on this record, 'cause you'd sound awesome doing it.' And he was like, 'I sing that song every night before I go onstage. That's my song I warm up to.' So one night I went over to his house at three in the morning and brought all my recording gear."
