Sometimes you just got to chill…..
H.E.A.T.–Back to Life
Bonus track from the H.E.A.T. II recordings – back to life. As some of us are fortunate enough to be easing out of lockdown, something to revive us.
Stryper – Blood From Above
The first track from the forthcoming Stryper album.
Wagakki Band–Homura/Akatsuki no Ito
Don’t quite know how to describe this (Babymetal meets The Hu?), but entertaining.
Pinnacle Point–Symphony of Mind
Pinnacle Point have a new album coming out in July. Pinnacle Point blend melodic rock and symphonic progressive rock.
New Valentine album
I had forgotten about these guys. Time to check out their S/T album again.
Ramos–My Many Sides
On paper this should be an absolutely great album with Josh Ramos from The Storm/Two Fires and featuring vocalists such as Joe Retta, Eric Martin, Harry Hess, Danny Vaughn, to name a few. And then the video starts to play. At first I thought I had clicked on the wrong video, but no. This sounds like it was recorded during the NWOBHM on zero budget.
Artic Rain–Lost Video
Another Swedish melodic rock band. This first track sounds promising.
Dukes Of The Orient–Freakshow
Dukes of the Orient, featuring John Payne and Erik Norlander, have a new album on the way. Unlike the first album which took 10 years to see the light of day, this one was put together in about a year. For fans of John Payne era Asia.
