REVIEW : ART NATION -- Liberation (2017)

ART NATION is  a melodic hard rock/AOR band from Sweden and it could easily be the next big thing from this country!! After the solid debut "Revolution" in 2015, Art Nation comes back with a new opus which is entitled "Liberation". "Liberation" includes all the things that we loved from the debut plus a catchier and more in-your-face sound that will make a big impact to this scene.

Event Horizon is a four-piece New York based rock band that was formed back in 2008 and nowadays they present us their brand new EP with the title 'Episode'.

REVIEW : ROSCO'S RIOT -- "Crazy & Wild" (2016)

The fact is that recently I discovered more and more interesting bands from the rock scene in general. My new discovery is a band from Belfast, Northern Island which is called Rosco's Riot. "Crazy And Wild" was the band's debut record that was released last year and it's about a well-crafted album with a bunch of some killer tunes in it.

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to present a very special box set release from UNRULY CHILD, "Reigning Frogs – The Box Set Collection” on April 21, 2017.

This exclusive, limited edition, brand new box set includes the rare and hard-to-find releases from the band's catalog. In all, five full length studio albums and one DVD are included in this beautifully packaged, must have release for Unruly Child Band fans.
"Reigning Frogs – The Box Set Collection” contents:
- “Waiting For The Sun”, which was originally released in 1998 and featured the line-up of singer Kelly Hansen (ex-Hurricane, now with Foreigner), Gowdy and Jay Schellen (with special guest Ricky Phillips of Styx on bass).
- “The Basement Demos”, which features all the demos that the band recorded in preparation for their first record for Interscope Records. The album also includes a bonus DVD with rare in-studio interviews and recording sessions from the same period.
- “UCIII”, an album which sees another Unruly Child incarnation featuring Gowdy with Guy Allison and Philip Bardowell taking on vocal duties. While slightly more proggy at times, “UCIII” still retains the overall vibe that fans loved about Unruly Child.
- “Worlds Collide”, which featured the full reunion of the original lineup of the band (Gowdy-Allison-Free-Antonino-Schellen). This release truly brought back the magic of the early demos and the first record.

TREAT : “The Road More or Less Traveled”

On April 23, 2016, Treat played a hotly anticipated set at Frontiers Rock Festival III. Held close to Milano, Italy, this was the third annual edition of the festival and saw Treat playing hot on the heels of the release of their latest studio album, “Ghost Of Graceland”. The release date of this live album happens to be about one year after the initial performance took place and almost coincides with the 2017 edition of the Frontiers Rock Festival as well.

WakeUpCall: If Beethoven Was a Punk

WakeUpCall: If Beethoven Was a Punk

What if Beethoven, Mozart, Hendel and the other great composers of the classical era had grown up with Led Zeppelin, Guns n Roses and Nirvana posters on their bedroom walls?
