After quite a wait there will be a new Leverage album . This time with Kimmo Blom on vocals. I really loved the last album, Circus Colossus , so this has quite a lot to do to replace that in my affections.
There will be a new Fortune album released by Frontiers. Quite a surprise. If you like keyboard driven AOR then check it out. For fans of bands like Harlan Cage.
If you like your music to have a 70s vibe to it then check out Cats In Space, who have a new album due out soon.
David Coverdale’s Whitesnake have new album due soon. 40 years and still rocking.
Mike Tramp has a new album due in March. I love his easy flowing Americana. Looking forward to this one.
Pride of Lion’s vocalist Toby Hitchcock has a new solo album out on Froniters. Fellow Frontiers artists Michael Palace and Daniel Flores provide the music. However, there is now doubt about the star of the show – Toby’s vocals.
Harem have a 14 CD box set released on Frontiers. Any excuse. Here is “No Justice”.
An whilst we are digging into the past, here is the video for Henry Lee Summer’s hit “I Wish I Had a Girl”.
Whilst having a look through youTube I came across these guys who were a fusion of metal and punk. It was a combination that few appreciated, including, by the sound of a another interview video I came across, band member Steve Jones. I liked the album, including this cover of a Waylon Jenning’s song.
I only picked up on this recently. It is a Phenomena style project featuring a variety of Swedish musicians and vocalists. Right from the off the tracks have a retro in your face AOR meets hard rock vibe. The following video perfectly illustrates what is on offer.
