Shiraz Lane - Harder To Breathe


SHIRAZ LANE is a Hard Rocking group of five from Vantaa, Finland. Yesterday they did open up for the Swedish Sleaze rockers CRASHDIET.

SHIRAZ LANE originally germinated in 2011, the band genuinely blossomed in 2015 after the current desirable line-up was solidified. SHIRAZ LANE wreaks of creative variety, which resonates through their double-edged guitar sound (produced by lead guitarist Jani Laine and rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske), groovy-yet-solid ground pounding (Ana Willman drums & Joel Alex bass) and unmistakably high-soaring melodies chanted by lead singer Hannes Kett. Despite their youth (the early twenties), they are already veterans of the underground circuit in their homeland and have developed a reputation for being uncompromising, loud, but most of all the genuine article. Although wearing inspiration and paying homage to their predecessors like AEROSMITH and GUNS N' ROSES, the “Big Guns” of Scandinavia such as members from THE 69 EYES, AMORPHIS, CHILDREN OF BODOM, LORDI and SONIC SYNDICATE have all described them as being one of the most entertaining bands they have seen in the underground music scene, bringing a fresh breeze to the table in terms of both music and live performance.

SHIRAZ LANE second album "Carnival Days were released last month, produced by Per Aldeheim, check it up!


The band consists of:

Hannes Kett - Lead Vocals
Jani Laine - Lead Guitar
Miki Kalske - Rhythm Guitar
Joel Alex - Bass
Ana Willman - Drums

Today's tune "Harder To Breathe" is the first single taken from the second album "Carnival Days" đŸ”„

Crashdiet - We Are The Legion


"We Are The Legion", the latest single and the return by the Swedish sleaze rockers CRASHDÏET. With an absent of three years, they are back with a new tune and a brand new frontman, Gabriel Keyes.

CRASHDÏET made their official comeback in the December edition of Sweden Rock Magazine, with the Stockholm based Gabriel Keyes CRASHDÏET once again will sleaze our minds with their melodic tunes. CRASHDÏET was previously fronted by Dave Lepard (2000-2006), H. Olliver Twisted (2007-2008) and Simon Cruz (2009-2015) and now their fourth vocalist Gabriel Keyes (2017-).

"We Are The Legion" was written in November and was released on Dec 30, 2017. It is being made available through CRASHDÏET's own label imprint, Diet Records. The tune was produced by Eric Bazilian, who can also be heard playing the acoustic guitar in the mesmerizing intro of the track. The song was mixed by Chris Laney, who also worked on CRASHDÏET's debut album, "Rest In Sleaze". The drums were recorded by Björn Samuelsson at Samuelsson Music And Sound Studio. It was mastered by Classe Persson. The artwork was created by Christel Mentges and can be seen below.

CRASHDÏET stated about the song: "It's a fight song, relevant to anyone who's going through challenges and setbacks in a world that is judgmental and superficial. We can only stay together and be strong on the battlefield of life."




This evening they are playing here in Stockholm, sadly I'm not there this time, but hopefully, they have a great time to be able to play again and I wish the lads good luck with everything.

The support for the evening is the great Hard Rocking dudes SHIRAZ LANE, from Vantaa, Finland.

Upcoming CRASHDÏET shows:

Mar. 30 - KĂ€gelbanan - Stockholm, Sweden
Jul. 07 - HelgeÄfestivalen - Knisslinge, Sweden
Jul. 14 - Bang Your Head!!! - Balingen, Germany
Oct. 26 - Rock N Skull - Peoria, IL, USA

Judas Priest - Freewheel Burning


Sunday, time for a classic.


"Freewheel Burning" is a song by the British heavy metal band JUDAS PRIEST, appearing on their 1984 album "Defenders of the Faith", and first released as the first single off that album. The song was a released in late 1983, several weeks prior to "Defenders of the Faith". The 12" version of the single contained an extended guitar intro that was omitted on the full-length release.

The guitar solo in the song is played by Glenn Tipton. The 12" single has an extended version with a guitar harmony intro not included in the 7" and album version.

The B-sides of this single are live versions of "Breaking the Law" and "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" recorded at the US Festival from Glen Helen Park, near Devore, San Bernardino in California on 29 May 1983 in front of an approx audience of 375,000 people. The version of "Breaking the Law" is also the first official version released to feature K.K. Downing's added live guitar solo.

The music video contains footage of the band playing while a boy is playing the arcade game Pole Position over which Rob Halford's face is superimposed. Enjoy today's tune!

One Desire - Hurt


ONE DESIRE is a melodic rock band from Finland, formed in 2012 when drummer Ossi Sivula started gathering musicians and friends for his new project. A couple years of writing songs, making demos with different musicians and friends went by with an aim to create music that could change the world. Various musicians came and went along the way, but in 2014 they met Jimmy Westerlund. Jimmy has several platinum and gold albums to his credit as a producer, guitarist, and songwriter. Jimmy had just moved back to Finland after a stint in Los Angeles. The band hired him to produce some songs, and after recording three songs with a new musical direction, they managed to attract the attention of Serafino Perugino, owner and head of A&R at Frontiers Music.

But, at this point, the band desperately needed a great singer. After trying out some different options, Jimmy suggested his longtime friend Andre Linman from the band STRUM UND DRANG. They were friends since way back and SuD had decided to go on hiatus the year before. Andre got together for a couple of sessions with the guys and after writing a couple new songs together, the style and sound that was about to become ONE DESIRE. Ossi and Andre asked Jimmy to join the band in 2016 and this is the album that was born from that collaboration. Also, not long after this happened, the very talented Jonas Kuhlberg (Paul Di´Anno, Cain´s Offering, MyGrain) was brought on and he became the last link in the chain.

After Jimmy brought in the song “Hurt”, the band felt that they had taken it to the next level. Andre wrote the beautiful ballad, “This Is Where The Heartbreak Begins” and at that time, ONE DESIRE started to find the right direction for Ossis' rocker, “Do You Believe”. Finally, in mid-2016, the band felt they finally were musically locked in and had the material to make an album that they could honestly stand behind and love beyond a doubt. 2017 will be a fantastic year as the journey of ONE DESIRE just begins!

RIOT V - Victory


Musically, RIOT V has bestowed on us a small history lesson in their brand new studio album “Armor Of Light” tracing right back to their roots, and for fans of the legendary “Thundersteel” album from 1988 - their mouths will already be watering at the prospect! For the new record, the band has brought everything to the table that has distinguished RIOT since the very beginning, venerating their 1988 classic’s 30th anniversary on the highest level. Enthusiasts can expect aggressive songs but perfectly formed in the enthralling melodies.

Chris “The Wizard” Collier (METAL CHURCH, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, SLIPKNOT and KORN etc.) produced RIOT V’s new album. Thus, not only the songs but also the entire sonic characteristics of the record have a very unique touch to them. Mariusz Gandzel (CRYSTAL VIPER) fabricated the stylistically flawless artwork.


Don Van Stavern - bass guitar 
Mike Flyntz - guitars
Todd Michael Hall - vocals
Frank Gilchriest - drums
Nick Lee - guitars

Murderdolls - White Wedding


MURDERDOLLS were an American horror punk and heavy metal band, founded during 2002 in Hollywood, California. The band line-up consisted of core members Wednesday 13 and Joey Jordison, while former members included Ben Graves, Acey Slade, Eric Griffin and Tripp Eisen.


The band has released two albums, the first in the form of "Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls" which was released in 2002. The band had limited initial success in the United States, though their album and singles charted well in the United Kingdom and around the same time they picked up a strong following in Japan. Their second album, "Women and Children Last", was released August 31, 2010. Wednesday 13 confirmed the band's split in an interview in July 2013. The sound of the band is made up of their shared influences, which musically are punk rock and as well as from some of the 1970s hard rock acts (such as KISS and ALICE COOPER). The band also share a large interest in horror movies, from which they take most of their images and references. Lyrically, the group most often present themselves in a "tongue-in-cheek" manner, covering topics of necrophilia, grave robbing, cross-dressing, amongst other things.

Together, the band recorded a cover version of Billy Idol's "White Wedding". A promotional video was recorded for it, in which they mocked popstar singing contests such as the Idol series. It was released as a single in the United Kingdom and they even performed it on the premier UK chart show, Top of the Pops, see it below.

Despite rumors to the contrary, this song is not about Idol's actual little sister. "Little sister" is slang for girlfriend. He is singing about a woman/girl he loves marrying someone else while he still loves her. Idol did have a sister who was getting married, but on an episode of VH1 Storytellers, he explained that his sister's wedding simply gave him the idea for the song. Like many of Idol's compositions, he started with the title and wrote the song from there.




Enjoy today's tune!

Queens Of The Stone Age - Head Like a Haunted House


Yesterday did QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE release a new video, for their latest single "Head Like A Haunted House", taken from Josh Homme and co’s seventh album "Villains", released last August and produced by Mark Ronson. The video is a bizarre animated carnival ride with dancing skeletons, disembodied hands, spooky hellscapes. All lead by Josh Homme. After a well done South American jaunt with brothers in arms FOO FIGHTERS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE will make their return to the U.S. this month with a few sold-out nights and later on a trip to Europe, see all the dates below.


In his video, Homme said that the incident meant that he had “failed” at being “a good man”.

“I want to be a good man, but I think last night I definitely failed at that,” he said. “That means I failed my family and friends as well. I don’t want them to ever be ashamed or embarrassed about being around me or knowing so. So, I apologize also to my bandmates and my mum and my dad. My wife, my brother and my kids.”


Produced, Edited and Directed by Liam Lynch

Necrophobic - Mark of the Necrogram


Once again a new week and it's time to introduce "Record Of the Week".

The Necrogram has awakened! Dormant for nearly four years, the sigil—crafted by Swedish death metal legends NECROPHOBIC long ago in a crucible of fire and ice—will spread hate, plague, and disease once more in 2018.

“Mark Of The Necrogram” is especially significant as it represents the rebirth of NECROPHOBIC with singer Anders Strokirk returning to the fold, also the guitarists Sebastian Ramstedt and Johan BergebĂ€ck joining the gang again. The guys also changed the record company from Season of Mist to Century Media Records.  This is also the first classic Kristian "Necrolord" WĂ„hlin cover since 1997’s “Darkside”, and musically offers a prime example how to blend death and black metal in the best possible, most diabolic way.


"Mark of the Necrogram" is a fantastic release from these gents. It's melodic, very catchy and right on the spot, an epic album. 49 minutes of Swedish death metal with bombastic blackened harmonies and never letting down on its primal fury and predatory aggression.

From start to finish the album keeps up all the way, I guess I should say it's a masterpiece, well it is. The album is ridiculous well-balanced, fiery guitar-work by the dream team of shredding, Sebastian Ramstedt and Johan BergebĂ€ck! Penetrating speedy blast-beats by Joakim Sterner crazy and well played basslicks by Alex Friberg and then the powerful and guttural vocals by Anders Strokirk. Tunes like "Sacrosanct", "Tsar Bomba", "Pesta" or "Lamashtu" are just a few proofs why “Mark Of The Necrogram” might become one of 2018’s most celebrated metal records. What more is the to say, than I'm happy!

Sum: Don't dare to miss this one!


Today's tune "Tsar Bomba" is taken from "Record Of The Week", enjoy!

The Edgar Winter Group - Frankenstein


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Frankenstein" is an instrumental by The Edgar Winter Group from their album "They Only Come Out at Night".

The song topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for one week in May 1973, being replaced by Paul McCartney's "My Love". It sold over one million copies. In Canada it fared equally well, reaching #1 on the RPM 100 Top Singles Chart the following month, the same month that saw it peak at #18 in the UK.

The song's title, coined by the band's drummer Chuck Ruff, derives from the fact that the original recording of the song was much longer than the final version, as the band would often deviate from the arrangement into less structured jams. The track required numerous edits to shorten it. The end result was spliced together from many sections of recording. Winter frequently refers to the appropriateness of the name also in relation to its "monster-like, lumbering beat". (One riff was first used by Winter in the song "Hung Up", on his jazz-oriented first album Entrance. He later tried a variation on it, "Martians" on the Standing on Rock album.)

Winter played many of the instruments on the track, including keyboards, saxophone and timbales. As the release's only instrumental cut, the song was not initially intended to be on the album, and was only included on a whim as a last-minute addition. It was originally released as the B-side to "Hangin' Around", but the two were soon reversed by the label when disc jockeys nationwide in the United States, as well as in Canada, were inundated with phone calls and realized this was the hit. The song features a "double" drum solo, with Ruff on drums and Winter on percussion. In fact, the working title of the song was "The Double Drum Song". The single was one of the few No. 1 chart records to include an extended passage featuring the ARP 2600 synthesizer. The group performed the song on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1973.


The song was actually performed three years previously when Edgar was playing with his older brother Johnny Winter at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970. This rare recording was recently released as one of several live bonus tracks included in the two-disc Deluxe Edition CD of Johnny Winter's Second Winter. Rolling Stone lists it as one of the top 25 best rock instrumentals.

Sections of the track were edited and sequenced into idents and jingles for Alan Freeman's Top 40 and Saturday Rock Show on UK's BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2 for many years, often followed with Freeman's trademark opening line "Greetings Pop Pickers..."

In live performances of the song, Edgar Winter further pioneered the advancement of the synthesizer as a lead instrument by becoming the first person ever to strap a keyboard instrument around his neck, giving him the on-stage mobility and audience interaction of guitar players.



Ronnie Montrose – guitar
Dan Hartman – bass
Chuck Ruff – drums
Edgar Winter – ARP 2600 synthesizer, electric piano, saxophone, timbales
Rick Derringer – producer

De Forbandede - Sirenernes HĂŠvn


DE FORBANDEDE is a danish stoner/garage rock band. Formed in Odense, Denmark, 2015 as an recording project aimed at meeting in a studio to write and record songs in the same session, both to avoid over-exercise and that the songs could be as "fresh" as possible. In the style there was gone on the psychedelic and a vowel-driven desert rock. It quickly swept into a 3-track EP "Everything & Nothing" that, together with 2 videos, quickly drew attention to the band from GFR, Gearbox Agency, Career Channel and various festivals plus a nomination for the Odense Live Prize 2017.

A square circle that's about everything and nothing - perfect u-perfect melodic vowel drowning in leap reverb and space echo. Fiery wild guitar solos are looking for the stars while toned drums and the thundering fuzzbass call deep inside the earth's interior. All in while the vibraphone and organsynth sneak you up with a consciousness-expanding full moon ridden through the desert. When classical psych meets the day of judgment, we are all lost and disappearing into the cosmos in a malfunction of dreams and lights, forever happy, forever damned.


The band consist of:

Peter Østergaard - Guitars, vocals
Ricky Christensen - Drummer
Nicolei Martin Aagaard Rasmussen - bass, vocals
Michael Hansen-Buur - keys, vocals

When classical psych meets the day of judgment, we are all lost and disappearing into the cosmos in a malfunction of dreams and lights, forever happy, forever damned.


Today's tune "Sirenernes HĂŠvn" is taken from the album "Den Evige Nat". Footage from the film "Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women" (Peter Bogdanovich, 1968), enjoy!

Jesper Binzer - Dream Big


On February 23rd, just a week before Jesper’s major tour, Jesper is releasing a brand new single called “Dream Big”. And in a few weeks his tour entres Swedish soil, hopefully, I get time to go and see it live. See all the dates below.



Jesper says:

“Dream Big” is a real melancholic candidate for the inner playlist – three verses from reality; about infertility, divorce and the brutality of power … and the chorus is about acceptance of, that it’s not only going up and down in the showbiz but also in life … My whole solo album, Dying Is Easy, is about myself, myself and a little bit more about myself, so it has been a new and exciting experience with a new single, to try to do something different and at the same time get some more music to take out and tour Denmark, Scandinavia and Europe with “.

The single has been produced by SĂžren Andersen, who is also there when Jesper and his band are touring around in Denmark, Sweden, Germany as well as some very special rock tours in Southern Europe.




Rumors say that Jesper Binzer has a little extra gift in his sleeve on Record Store Day Saturday, April 21st.

Enjoy today's tune!

Bad Wolves - Zombie


"Zombie" is a protest song by Irish rock band THE CRANBERRIES, written about the 1993 IRA bombing in Warrington, and in memory of two young victims, Johnathan Ball and Tim Perry. It was released in September 1993 as the lead single from their second studio album, No Need to Argue (1994). It preceded the release of No Need to Argue by two weeks. The song was written by the band's lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, and reached No. 1 on the charts in Australia, Belgium, France, Denmark and Germany.

The song returned to the Top-Ten on the US Rock Charts shortly after news of Dolores O’Riordan’s passing earlier this year.

O’Riordan was slated to record vocals for BAD WOLVES cover of the track on the day of her passing. The band decided to release the song in her honour with all BAD WOLVES proceeds going to her children.

"She was telling me BAD WOLVES version was “awesome” and she could not wait to get into the studio, however ultimately her voicemails have brought comfort to her Mother Eileen and her family as they heard her messages joking and talking passionately about music, her children, and future plans."




BAD WOLVES will tour extensively in 2018, with US tour dates supporting FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and SHINEDOWN running through April and May, with more worldwide dates TBA.
