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!

135291Some nights are just pure magic!
In October of 2017, hard rock titans Alter Bridge took to the stage of the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London for two very special headline shows.
Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips treated the capacity crowds to selections from their entire musical catalog.
The set list included some of the band’s biggest hits; rarities and even a few songs the band had never previously performed live.
Adding another career first for the band, Alter Bridge was joined on stage by conductor Simon Dobson and the 52-piece Parallax Orchestra. 
Together, everyone on stage during those two extraordinary nights treated the combined crowd of over 10,000 fans to an unforgettable music experience.

Now those two performances have been combined in to one full length, epic concert that is to be shared with fans around the globe in Alter Bridge: Live At The Royal Albert Hall.

Beyond The Black – energetic, straight forward, uncompromising, symphonic metal.

Where others still lose themselves in colorful descriptions, this band has already set its next course and is heading with full force right into the “Heart Of The Hurricane”. The title of the third album is metaphorically where Beyond The Black feel they are – and 2018 is going to be the year in which this charismatic outfit based around Jennifer Haben explores what they describe as ‘the stylistic limitations of extremes: where on the one hand the screws of hardness are tightened again by several turns;  and on the other hand a previously unprecedented catchiness dominates the pieces’.

Beyond The Black continue with their unerring sense of gripping melodies, mixed up with pulverizing blast beats, rousing neck breaker riffs, epic keyboard passages, and elaborately arranged strings and choral settings. From the atmospheric gloomy heaviness (“Through The Mirror”, “My God Is Dead”), the band spans the stylistic arc of their distinctive Metal-meets-Medieval sound (“Scream For Me”, “Song For The Godless”) to the bittersweet acoustic ballad “Breeze”. Together, the huge mix of elf-like vocals and deep-set growls create  a bombastic widescreen production – from the heart into the fingers or “from the heart into the vocal chords”, as singer Jennifer says.

135156The first recording in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin. Recorded in Malibu, CA at Shangri La Studios with producer Rick Rubin and longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
