Degreed – Ruins

Ruins is the new track from Degreed.

Mats from the band describes it as follows:

“Ruins is a song about mine and Robins hometown and how it is in many smaller towns – the stores close and the people move to the cities to find jobs.
It’s about growing up in the little town and loving it and still loving it even though the houses fall apart and the people you knew have moved.
Ruins is starting off softer and ending up in a big chorus – It’s a little bit pop and a little more rock all mixed into one, there’s something in it for everyone!” –

Burning Rain – new album on the way

Burning Rain have a new track called Midnight Train released, which I assume means a new album is also on it’s way. I have to admit that these guys, featuring Doug Aldrich, have passed me by. I’m now going back and listening to their previous album, Epic Obsession. A bit of retro Whitesnake meets Led Zep action, which I should have picked up on earlier.

New Dream Theater Song – Fall Into The Light

Dream Theater have released another song, Fall Into The Light, from their forthcoming album. If the first track, Untethered Angel, didn’t fill you with excitement, then this one might do the trick. The extremely fussy Dream Theater fans seem to be generally giving this one the thumbs up. Jordan Rudess does some really nice playing in the final section of the song.
