149130Wie ein Tornado tosen die ersten Riffs von ‘I`m ready‘ mit Schaum vor dem Mund aus den Boxen – und Hölle ja, und ob wir ready sind!!! Die australischen Starkstromjünger haben die zwei Jahre seit Mount The Mountain offenkundig genutzt, um ihre Hard-Rock-Formel noch mehr einzudampfen, und das Ergebnis ist eine elektrisierende Dampframme von Album geworden, die dem Namen Mammoth Mammoth mehr als gerecht wird: Der fies vor sich hin groovende Titeltrack kann mit Sicherheit Bierdosen selber knacken, und wenn bei ‘Tear it down‘ nicht die Einhörner tot auf der Weide umfallen, geht es nicht mit rechten Dingen zu. Kreuzung ist mitnichten der Scheideweg für Mammoth Mammoth – es ist das staubtrockene Rock`n`Roll-Manifest einer Band, die ganz genau weiß, wohin die Reise geht!

man walking between two seasFor over 15 years, Alter Bridge has been a band known for blurring the line between hard rock and heavy metal. Building upon the sound that has won the band worldwide critical acclaim and a devoted global fan base, the band returns with their sixth studio album, Walk The Sky. The fourteen-track opus marks a creative highpoint for the quartet comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums. Walk The Sky is a complete career retrospective drawing upon elements from each of the band’s previous releases to create something new from the band. Recorded in a way never done before, the album was born from complete song ideas created by Kennedy and Tremonti. These songs would then be worked on by the entire band to create the fourteen songs that would make Walk The Sky the listening experience it is.

This varies from the band’s previous method going back to their sophomore release Blackbird where Kennedy and Tremonti would combine individual ideas and riffs alongside producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette to form some of the band’s most revered songs. From the opening vocal melody on “One Life” to the moving finale of “Dying Light,” Alter Bridge have created a formidable addition to their music catalog. Songs like “God Speed,” “Native Son” and “Walking On The Sky” are sure to be early additions to the live set. The first single “Wouldn’t You Rather” is quintessential Alter Bridge and “Forever Falling” also marks a lead vocal return from Tremonti with Kennedy taking the chorus as done previously on the Fortress favorite “Waters Rising.” Alter Bridge will be heading out on a worldwide tour beginning in September in the United States before heading over to Europe to close out 2019.

145760Grammy winning songwriter and frontman for Creed –  One of rock’s biggest names roars back to the scene with a driving, introspective new solo album.

Scott Stapp is known as a Grammy winning songwriter and frontman for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and for his work as a solo artist who released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013) which featured his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide.” His next solo venture reflects a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years and counting. With new single “Purpose For Pain,” one of rock’s biggest names roars back to the scene with a driving, introspective new single. It is the first song from Scott Stapp’s upcoming album, THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS, set for July 2019 release on Napalm Records. The album documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light.
Scott’s evolution, both personally and professionally, now reflects a powerful vocal style from an artist with a strong sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival. As such, he is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.

W13_CD_12pg_s1Fifth horror punk manifesto The Dixie Dead is certainly not stingy when it comes to good old-fashioned ghost stories: this time the maestro used celluloid classics such as „Poltergeist“ and „Hands of the Ripper“ for inspiration. Massive metal riffs and industrial undertones deliver the eerie soundtrack for those grim tales.

142941Wenn die Stimme bricht und sich Gitarren langsam aufbauen, dann klingt das für einige sicher nach interessanter Rockmusik mit Geschrei.

Für andere jedoch, wie ein Ausbruch den man keine Sekunde länger hinauszögern kann. Wie eine heftige Emotion, die sich im hier und jetzt ein Ventil suchen muss. Wie ein epischer Moment, den man nicht festhalten kann! Genau das, gepaart mit einer ordentlichen Portion Pathos, findet man in der Musik von 8Kids wieder. Es geht darum seinen Gefühlen freien Lauf zu lassen. Trauer, Freude, Hoffnung, Liebe… Alles wird eins in ihren Songs.

Die neue Single “wir bleiben Kids” (feat. Swiss) ist der totale Flashback. Nostalgie, Wohlgefühl, Leidenschaft pur!
