REVIEW : CAPTAIN BLACK BEARD – Struck By Lightning (2018, MelodicRock Records)

Captain Black Beard is a Swedish rock band that was formed back in 2009. Their self-titled debut album was named one of the "Albums Of The Year" by legendary journalist Geoff Barton of Classic Rock. For me, that record was one my biggest and pleasant surprises back then and it's on a regular basis in my cd player.

Today, NWOBHM band MONUMENT release the video for "William Kidd", the second single from their upcoming album "Hellhound".
The video for "William Kidd" comes one week prior to the singles release date on 27.04.
"William Kidd" is a song that tells the tale of the infamous privateer of the same name and finds the band in incredible form giving some of their best performances yet on record.

Produced and mixed by Tony Newton (IRON MAIDEN - Book Of Souls Live Chapter) and mastered by Ade Emsey (IRON MAIDEN) at Table of Tone Mastering, the track offers four and a half minutes of blistering, TRUE British heavy metal in the vein of what has so far made MONUMENT a sensation with fans across the world looking for the next great band to come out of the United Kingdom.
Monument pay their respects to RAINBOW, covering the track "Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll" as the B Side of the 7" Vinyl.

REVIEW : VEGA --- Only Human (Frontiers Music s.r.l., May 2018)

I just love this band! In my humble opinion, these U.K melodic rockers are one of the best bands from England over the last decade!! They achieve to combine perfectly the old-school of melodic hard rock with a more fresh and modern approach that makes each and every single album to flow into perfection.

REVIEW : 17 Crash --- Hit The Prey (April 2018, Volcano Records)

The story of this sleaze hard rock band started back in 2011 in Italy. 17 Crash is a band that is heavenly influenced by the late 80's U.S. sleaze melodic hard rock scene and their aim is to bring back this sound big and loud. The debut, "Reading Your Dirty Minds", was released in 2015 through Demon Doll Records and left a promise for bigger things in the near future.

METALAPOLIS sign MOTOR CITY MAYHEM; new album out on May 25, 2018!

Out of the ashes from SHOTGUN EXPRESS, the dirtiest band ever out of Stuttgart/Germany, MOTOR CITY MAYHEM will continue their legacy with an even dirtier album. SHOTGUN EXPRESS has been the winner of the German Rock and Pop Award as the best (Hard) Rock band back in 2012. They have been on tour with GREAT WHITE before they parted ways with their singer. Instead of continuing with their old brand, they decided to do a complete new start.

With the guitarists Johnny & Scott and bassist Robin as well, the main people from back then are involved in MOTOR CITY MAYHEM. Singer Van also is from the old family, since he was a temporary replacement as a guitarist for Scott in SHOTGUN EXPRESS.

REVIEW : Imperium --- “Beyond the stars” (AOR Heaven, 2018)

Now this is a release that I was looking forward to listening to! IMPERIUM, the project of Mika Brushane, is back in business with album number two. "Beyond The Stars" is entitled the band's brand new opus and it's once again a great sample of pure melodic rock bliss. At this point I have to say that the debut, "Dreamhunter”, which was released back in 2016 was a damn fine record that can't be missed by any fan of the melodic rock community.
