SONS OF APOLLO - Psychotic Symphony (2017) retail

SONS OF APOLLO - Psychotic Symphony (2017) retail full

SONS OF APOLLO is the mega super group featuring former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian alongside Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex- Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs / Mr. Big) and the mighty Jeff Scott Soto on lead vocals. Their debut album, "Psychotic Symphony", will be released on October 20 via InsideOut Music.
The disc was produced by the dynamic production duo of Portnoy and Sherinian, also affectionately known as 'The Del Fuvio Brothers' which is the nickname given to them over twenty years ago during their time together in Dream Theater.

I’ve heard a lot of 'super groups'. It very rarely really works; too many cooks, too many egos etc. When I first heard that these five monster musicians were making a band my first thought was; there’s not enough room for all these individuals to fit into one song, much less a full album...
Boy oh boy was I wrong… and I’m so glad I was.

"Psychotic Symphony" is as close to a perfect Rock album as you can get. You have it all here, from progressive inventiveness to hard rock swagger to ridiculously catchiness.
From Bumblefoot’s first riff on 'God of the Sun' to Sherinian’s fade out on 'Opus Maximus', I was mesmerized.
Maybe I’m wrong, but the point of reviewing an album is to let people know whether they should dole out their hard earned cash for a product.
The answer here is a resounding YES!

I’m not going to do a song by song write-up. Discover it by yourself; it's a fantastic musical journey.
Each member of Sons Of Apollo is at the top of their game on "Psychotic Symphony", which is funny since I thought they no room for improvement from their already stellar catalogs.
The sum of these parts is truly breathtaking to listen to.

Bumblefoot and Sheehan made me want to smash my guitar. Those riffs!!! And I mean bass riffs too, an instrument used here as a true 'bass guitar'
Portnoy is a BEAST. I always liked his playing, but he owns this album. Sherinian compliments every single song perfectly, and what can I say about the incredible Jeff Scott Soto... this is one of the best works of his impressive career, and that’s saying a lot.
I can only pray to the Rock Gods that they continue this SUPER group for many more albums.

EUROPE - Walk The Earth (2017)

EUROPE - Walk The Earth (2017) full

30 years on from the release of The Final Countdown, EUROPE are bigger and better than they have ever been. Following on from the success of the 2015 release War Of Kings and the 30th anniversary recording at the Roundhouse in London, the new LP "Walk The Earth" is due for release on the 20th October 2017.

Opening up with a barnstormer of a title track you know you are in for an exceptional ride.
Tempest’s vocals are almost Gillan-esque in their delivery and this should fit nicely with their upcoming tour with the mighty Deep Purple. Norum’s guitar work is hot and heavy and his penchant for intricate guitar lines is clearly in evidence here on this record.
For some this LP may take some listening to in order to really appreciate the production and songwriting, however the more you listen the more you get from the album and as such this is what makes the recording a winner.

Sure, there are the catchy melodic tunes as well like “Election Day” and the out and out riff driven powerhouse tracks such as “Haze”, but somehow there is a lot more to this record. At times it’s dark, moody and melancholic.
The kind of records that makes you listen, and then listen again. This is what makes it such a good recording.

Europe really are at the top of their game here and long may it continue, if this album is anything to go by we are in for a real treat as the band continues to develop.

GLENN HUGHES - Feel [2CD Remastered & Expanded Edition] (2017)

GLENN HUGHES - Feel [2CD Remastered & Expanded Edition] (2017) full

Cherry Red / Hear No Evil Records has started a GLENN HUGHES reissue program under the title The Glenn Hughes Remasters. Here we have "Feel [2CD Remastered & Expanded Edition]", the soulful, funky album Hughes recorded in the mid-Nineties, remastered and with lots of worthy previously unreleased material.

Having Survived the hedonistic, life shortening spoils of fame with hard rock monsters Deep Purple, Glenn Hughes arrived in the Nineties clean of addictions and with no regrets.
With "Feel", his third album in the post drugs era originally released in 1995, he parcels out little chunks of funk and morsels of late-nite soul like some rock’n’roll Masterchef winner in a charitable mood.

Reunited with Pat Thrall again and writing with Bruce Gowdy (Unruly Child), Hughes’ talent as a composer and vocalist bursts into bloom all over "Feel".
It was a latent flowering of all the man’s talents as a songwriter and interpreter of heavy rock ('Big Time', 'Redline'), streamlined percussive funk ('Save Me Tonight', 'Coffee & Vanilla') and blue eyed soul ('Does It Mean That Much', 'Maybe Your Baby').
Hughes, Thrall and Gowdy variously share production duties. Their lush arrangements and 3D rhythms are the album’s sonic heartbeat.
The whole shebang sounds weighty and dynamic, especially on this remaster.

And as has been well documented, Hughes invests much of himself in each and every song, bringing even the ordinary stuff to life in this slick travelogue through the rock / funk / soul landscape.
The album never makes a false move or takes a wrong turn, climaxing here with the first of the 2 CD set’s bonus tracks, ‘Holy Man’, a new version of the track from Deep Purple’s 1974 album Stormbringer, carefully sculpted by Hughes to fit into this new, laid back aesthetic. This was the original Japanese Bonus Track of the album.

The second CD is chockful of bonus material, all live, some electric, some acoustic. And it’s the latter that is the most intriguing.
There's wonderful acoustic takes on 'From Now On' and 'So Much Love To Give' where you can hear Hughes' voice in all its splendor. Conventional wisdom has it that the true test of a great song is how it sounds stripped down, minus the polish, the overdubs.
It’s always something of a risk, and it generally exposes those artists whose success is heavily dependent on studio recording wizardry.

Hughes breezes through these unplugged tests. He makes ‘From Now On’ (from a ’94 tour of the Netherlands) sound like a vocal exercise, with added emotion.
And, hinting perhaps at his personal resurrection in the early Nineties, ‘So Much Love To Give’ (Sweden, ’93) and ‘Lay My Body Down’ (Japan, ’94) have a quasi religious feel. Hughes vocalises with a controlled fervor, but it sounds like one he’d be happy to bear.
The electric tracks (including Purple's 'Burn' and 'Stormbringer') taped in a 1994's Germany performance, simply rocks, and The Voice Of Rock show his credentials.

GLENN HUGHES - Feel [2CD Remastered & Expanded Edition] (2017) back

In all its different exposure (studio / live / unplugged), "Feel [2CD Remastered & Expanded Edition]" reaffirm what we already knew: Hughes is an immense talent.
It's a fantastic release because not only features "Feel" remastered, but also a juicy set of previously unreleased material much more worthy than a 'fill a bonus disc for a deluxe edition': it showcases a terrific vocalist returning in top form.

V.A. - 0dayrox Advanced Releases Nov / Dec 2017 - Vol.1

V.A. - 0dayrox Advanced Releases Nov / Dec 2017 - Vol.1 full

This end of the year promises to deliver some stupendous albums, let's check the newest advanced singles from CD's to come. Swedish hard rock institution EUROPE are ready to release their new album Walk The Earth', here's the second single 'Election Day', a rocking tune with great groove.

Via Frontiers Music we have excellent news: In December they will release Blood, Guts And Games, the debu album by EISLEY / GOLDY. Yeah, singer David Glen Eisley and guitarist Craig Goldy, both formerly of Giuffria, have joined forces again in a partnership which sees the two artists bring back the signature sound that launched their careers in the early ‘80s. Just check their first single 'The Heart is a Lonely Hunter'... Love it!
Original Giuffria drummer Alan Krigger is featured in the music video, and also original Giuffria bassist Chuck Wright also plays on a few tracks on the album. It's some kind of GIUFFRIA comeback!

On the same label, we have one of the more anticipated comeback acts in years: PINK CREAM 69. Commanded by bassist (and renowned producer) Dennis Ward, the band will release their new album, Headstrong, on November 10th. 'Man Of Sorrow' is the 2nd single, a terrific tune much more Melodic Hard Rock oriented.
Also on Frontiers, November 10, is scheduled for SWEET / LYNCH new CD Unified. 'Bridge Of Broken Lies' is the midtempo ballad from the album, still rocking and meaty.
And we have 'Here's To You' the second single by THE DARK ELEMENT, the new band featuring Anette Olzon and Jani Liimatainen (Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius). A very original music. Out November 10th via Frontiers Music.

AOR Heaven Records are also preparing some cracking stuff: one of them is the debut by CODE RED, a new group around singer Ulrick Lönnqvist (songwriter for Jim Jidhed, Creye, Mad Invasion and Find Me). The singer teamed up with co-writers Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica) and Michael Palace (Palace, Big Time), and along with lead guitarist Oscar Bromvall (Palace, Erika) and keyboard player Kaspar Dahlqvist (Shadowquest, Dionysus). Check the AOR-tastic first single 'Heat Of The Night'.

Also via AOR Heaven we'll hear the debut CD by MIDNITE CITY, a new band founded January 2017 by current Tigertailz frontman (and former Vega, Steevi Jaimz and Teenage Casket Company member and songwriter) Rob Wylde. Pete Newdeck (Newman, Eden's Curse, Blood Red Saints) produces and play on the album while Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) mastered the whole thing. First single titled 'Summer Of Our Lives' says it all: feel good Melodic Rock.

Swedish rockers HARDCORE SUPERSTAR are presenting the brand new single 'Have Mercy On Me', taken from the forthcoming studio album scheduled for release in spring 2018. The song is the perfect sample of the classic Hardcore Superstar brand: loud, aggressive and hard hitting sound with big drums and an even bigger chorus.
Ex- Tigertailz STEEVI JAIMZ celebrates the 30th Anniversary of 'Living Without You' with the re-recording 2017 of the classic Tigertailz song. This version features Steevi, Phil Vokin (ex Strangeways), and super-producer Chris Laney.

The three members have worked with a host of big names during their careers including Styx, Steve Vai, Alice Cooper, Glenn Hughes, Cinderella and many, many more.
'Elevate' is the second single from the upcoming new album, featuring blues guitarist Eric Gales for a killer solo duet in this terrific classic rock song.

'Room Of Nightmares' is the first single, expected to appear on BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's next studio album, which was recently completed for an early 2018 release. As usual, Zakk Wylde rocks and with some sense of humor as well.
German '80s Melodic Hard Rockers VICE are back with a new album titled 'Veni Vidi... Vice' which will be released on November, 17th. 'Open Eyes' is one of the songs where the band continues the old style of VICE in a modern way.

HELL IN THE CLUB - Devil On My Shoulder [Japanese Edition +1]

HELL IN THE CLUB - Devil On My Shoulder [Japanese Edition +1] full

Italian hard rockers HELL IN THE CLUB just released their first album with major label Frontiers Music, and one of you asked for their previous "Devil On My Shoulder" in its Japanese Edition including the bonus track 'Never Too Late'.
Hell In The Club includes members of renowned acts such as Elvenking, Death SS and Secret Sphere, but their music stands out as something totally different: they mix classic US hard rock and modern sounds, hair metal, party songs and anything in between.

With "Devil On My Shoulder", Hell In The Club tosses you into their time machine, propels backwards in time, and drops you off on the Sunset Strip in 1987.
However, this record essentially delivers killer melodic hard rock songs, with a little edge and a twist of L.A. sleazy hair metal, all pretty anthemic, foot-tapping and melodic. And they're pretty darn good at it.

Every song is big on melody, harmony and groove with catchy hooks in both lyrics and arrangement.
The rhythm section delivers a consistent rock groove and beat, the riffs bristle and the solos soar. The vocal harmonies are smooth, and vocalist Davide 'Dave' Moras got that 'feeling' necessary for this classic genre.

This monster of an album opens on "Bare Hands", a song with so much variety that you’re left pretty bombarded with all the levels of glam-rock and hair metal. It begins with a thumping intro full of guitar squeals which then leads into a verse that’s at least 70% Van Halen-esque, before clashing fantastically with the sweeping, pure old school sound that is the chorus. It’s an absolute gem of a track to start on, managing to really grip you as it forces it’s way into the rest of the album.
One of my favorites from the CD should be the follower, title track "Devil On My Shoulder", a terrific melodic hard rocker with sharp guitar riffs and a brilliant chorus.

"Beware Of The Candyman" is all real fun akin the very first G N' R, then the album then drifts into its single release "Proud", a more midtempo track in the vein of Danger Danger. It’s a song all about living your life’s dream and being damn proud to do it. As a live track, this would be a great centre piece with some parts, such as the late-song guitar solo, perfect for one of those ‘lighter in the air, arms waving’ kind of moments.

HELL IN THE CLUB - Devil On My Shoulder [Japanese Edition +1] booklet

"Whore Paint" is another highlight, pulling zero punches and not caring at all. It’s a fast paced riot of sound in the Skid Row avenue, complete with shredding, chugging guitars, booming drums and even some chants of “hey, hey!” and “whoa, whoa!“ that’ll make you want to join in every single time. It’s a magnificent homage to the genre as a whole, and it hits all of the right places.

"Pole Dancer" is of a similar vein, starting with some solo drums and building up in an intro that doesn’t slow down at any point, launching fast and furiously into the rest of the song. It’s an exercise in endurance for Hell In The Club, and is skillfully delivered.
"We Are the Ones" is a semi-ballad but the one with balls which reminds you the first Reckless Love (when they used to rock hard), plenty of harmonies in the chorus.

The next track "Save Me" then mixes things up, turning previous formula on their head by opening with a funky, chugging intro which leads flawlessly into another fast paced hard-hitter.
And there's much more to enjoy; the shuffle hair metal of "Toxic Love", the '80s Bon Jovi-esque ballad "Muse" and the melodic hard rock bliss of "No Nore Goodbyes".

HELL IN THE CLUB - Devil On My Shoulder [Japanese Edition +1] back

"Devil On My Shoulder" definitely has surprised me. It's a killer Melodic Hard Rock inspired by the true '80s tradition but with a big, energetic modern sound. All songs kick ass and there's much to be said for consistency mated with good songwriting and musicianship here.
Hell In The Club are on par with top-notch acts like Danger Danger, Van Halen, Skid Row, White Widdow, etc, and it's clear why Frontiers Music sign-up the band after listening to this album.

SAGA - The Polydor Legacy [early hits remastered] (2017)

SAGA - The Polydor Legacy [early hits remastered] (2017) full

As its title implies, SAGA "The Polydor Legacy" is a 17 track Best Of album by the legendary Canadian band comprising their works at their time with Polydor Records, all remastered.
In January 2017 it was announced that Saga will disband at the end of the year after their 'Final Chapter' tour, as stated by founder Michael Sadler.

Yes, after 40 years pleasing the world with their unique blend of Neo-Prog, Saga is coming to its end.
They have delivered 21 varied studio albums, which have cemented their status as one of the most influential progressive rock bands in history.

Their hits include "Don't Be Late", "Wind Him Up", "On The Loose", "The Flyer", "Humble Stance", "Scratching The Surface", "You're Not Alone" and "Listen" To Your Heart ", which they have now assembled with 9 more songs from their Polydor era on their ultimate best-of album, "The Polydor Legacy".

Completely remastered, here's some Saga most representative work - who are on the final tour now with original singer Michael Sadler, the brothers Ian (guitar) and Jim Crichton (bass, keyboards), keyboardist / singer Jim Gilmour, and drummer Mike Thorne - the kind that made them famous: bombastic sound, melodic, complex sound cascades with staccato-like guitars, orchestral keyboards and harmonic vocals.

It's a pleasure to listen to these - mostly - early Saga songs with really fine remastering job.
