New album from Canadian metal band Unleash The Archers out now.

Unleash The Archers - Apex (2017)
Release: 02-06-2017 

Legend tells of an Immortal, asleep in a mountain keep
Whosoever shall awaken, his endless power reap
Shackled by a curse at birth, over which he’s no control
Forced to serve as hand of evil, lost without a soul
The Matriarch, she has him now, firm within her grasp
A ritual to cleanse the bloodlines, immortality at last
Find her sons and bring them to her, on altars they will bleed
Complete the task and as she promised, finally be free
-Apex-

From its opener "Awakening" to the closing title track, the listener will partake in a furious adventure, weaving through elements of the strongest metal genres of our time. You'll be guided by the shimmering heat of sweeping lead guitars, face-melting solos, deafening growls, pummelling bass lines and of course the thrilling hooks of Brittney Slayes' king-size voice. 

The bands first ever lyric video for the second single from APEX:
heck out "The Matriarch" here.

1 Awakening
2 Shadow Guide
3 The Matriarch
4 Cleanse The Bloodlines

the Melodic rock act "Phase II Phase" from Spain (Madrid) are back with their 2ndalbum "Face it"
Phase II Phase was born in 2010 when Jose L. Gallera (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Jorge Gomez (Keyboards) quit the rock band Arianne.
They started their own project inspired by the Swedish & Norwegian Aor bands which were part of their musical background during their teens.
Together with guitarist & singer Zalo Lopez, who's born in Stockholm but has Spanish origins they started to write songs and track down some demos.
Since then, Phase II Phase has played the local circuit and opened for many major acts, such as Work Of Art.

So expect classy 80's Scandi Aor rock sound like you know of "Da Vinci", "Return" ,"Skagarack" to name just a few.
The album was mastered by Mats Ericsson (Degreed drummer).

Debut album from US melodic band Radioux City out now !

Radioux City - Soul survivor
Release: 23-05-'17

Gary Brandon is one of the original co-founders of pomp LA band White Sister. A front Man keyboardist songwriter in his own right. In 1985, believing that the group should be fronted by one singer, the record label took a decision behind the scenes that White Sister was no longer going to have alternative lead singers. In addition to this, and to make the situation worse, Gary’s role in the band was reduced to less lead vocals and a position of keyboard player. 
In 1986, as Gary was extremely unhappy with this decision, he decided to quit the band during the early stages of what was going to be the second White Sister album “Fashion by Passion”. Working on various songs that also a big part of the bands legacy. 
In order to survive, Gary found working in the John Parr Live Touring Band. This lay down the foundations to what would be the formation of his next band –  a band that would allow him to finally return to his originally intended path as front man, Radioux City.
 
In 1988, the first batch of demos were recorded. It was slow progress over the next three years creating the lineup of musicians and forming the structure of Radioux City. 
The decline of all forms of rock music and the 90s music scene has been well documented over the years with a move towards grunge Seattle sound. Unfortunately, victims of this move were Radioux City.
 
However, a quarter of a decade later, and finally released from the vault is a highly anticipated and worthy CD release on ABR. Complete with new artwork and lyric booklet and remastered to capture the retro sound. In addition, there are three bonus tracks and a cover of Ted Nugent’s classic “Free For All ”.
The Radioux City sound is hard rock with a swagger and a mixture of infectious grooves.
The sound has been described as a meeting of King of the Hill, It’s Alive and some Early Extreme.
 
Tracklist:
 
1. Scratch The Itch
2. You Make My Love Grow
3. Shake A Leg
4. Genie
5. I Created A Monster
6. Funky Music
7. Soldier of Fortune
8.  Lookin'
9. Free For All
10. Slave For A Day
11. Filthy Dirty Dog
12. Show Me The Way

UK melodic rockers Ten announce new album out in June.

Ten - Gothica
Release: 07-07-2017 

Ten has announced they will release their new album "Gothica" on July 7th 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl. The highly anticipated new album promises to be one of their strongest collection of songs to date. It is full of all the trademark textures and flavors we have come to expect from Ten, arguably one of the best and most consistent melodic hard rock bands in the genre. “Gothica” renews Ten’s longstanding association with the Frontiers label and proudly displays all the hallmarks of classic Ten albums and will surely continue to build upon the rich legacy that the great British rockers have forged over a career spanning 22 years and counting.

“Gothica” emerges as their darkest album to date. Embracing history, romance and erotic horror in equal measure as it does, the title proves to be a fitting name. As listeners, we are transported from the darker side of human nature to the nocturnal supernatural, a dramatic realm of nightmares and the forbidden. “Gothica” is cinematic in every sense of the word. A web of musically elaborate spells, evoking embers that spark the imagination courtesy of the classic song writing of vocalist Gary Hughes.

Tracklisting:


1. The Grail
2. Jekyll And Hyde
3. Travellers
4. Man For All Seasons
5. In My Dreams
6. The Wild King Of Winter
7. Paragon
8. Welcome To The Freak Show
9. La Luna Dra-cu-la
10. Into Darkness

New Heavens Fire album coming up.

Heavens Fire - Playing with fire 
Release: 07-07-2017 

Heavens Fire was resurrected by guitarist/song writer JT Harris in 2012 from the ashes of a band that existed in the late 90's. That band featured Ex-Arsin members: drummer/lyricist Mike Mackinnon and bassist Andy Narsingh. Prior to their 2000 release on Now and Then records entitled “The Outside" and after many negative reviews and disappointing record sales, the band took on a whole new approach as JT took over all song writing duties for the follow up CD and management duties as well. Fate however, had other plans. 
2012:  JT hires long time friend Darren Smith and local drum prodigy Alexis Von Kraven to go into Phase One Studios and finish the music he had written to his new album "Judgement Day" but there would be another delay shortly after it’s completion. Darren was chosen to be the touring singer of Jake E Lee’s new band “Red Dragon Cartel”

2017: Heavens Fire are VERY happy to announce you can pre-order their brand new album entitled “Playing With Fire” on Sunday morning May 7th !!
With your purchase, you will immediately receive the song “The Real World” for download. You can currently preview that track now by streaming it on Soundcloud. The entire album will be released 7/7/17 on JT Music and will contain 13 tracks.

Tony Mills new solo album coming up.

Tony Mills - Streets of chance 
Release: 2017

Tony Mills is hard working on his new album, ‘Streets of Chance’, due for release early summer this year !
He said when working on his previous album that the next album would be a solid AOR effort falling clearly in line with SHY and a lot of his past work and so it has proved. He's co-written some of the songs with Pete Newdeck, Robby Boebel, Tommy Denander and Eric Ragno, with more in the pipeline. Nothing can stop the record from becoming a very satisfactory album from his point of view, even now; though songs can come and go on final decisions during mastering etc...
