Temperance about to release first ever dvd in september

Temperance - Maschere A Night At The Theater
Release: 08-09-2017 

Temperance captured an outstanding performance in the picturesque setting of Teatro Sociale in Alba, Italy, a theatre show which marks an important milestone in their fast rising career, following the release of the critically acclaimed third album "The Earth Embraces Us All", a European tour with Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody and shows with the likes of Nightwish, Epica and many others, for over a total of 100 concerts in 3 years.

This is how guitarist Marco Pastorino commented: A live Dvd is a milestone for every band and we are releasing it pretty early on in our career, its like a dream come true. Since the moment we started this band we’ve always thought that writing songs that one day could be performed with a string quartet and a choir would be our goal. And here we are playing with these amazing musicians! We worked really hard to get here and we see this as a new starting point for the band. With this new release we also took the chance to present our new drummer Alfonso Mocerino (from the classic Italian Progressive band Il Balletto Di Bronzo) to our fans! His drumming on this Dvd is out of this world !

Debut album coming up from "Diamante"

Diamante - Coming in hot 
Release: 2017

Enter Diamante. With iridescent sapphire hair, a show-stopping voice, runway-ready fashion swagger, and an empowering message, the Boston-raised and Los Angeles-based Mexican-Italian-American sonic heroine brings a new (and blue) fire to rock and alternative music. Serendipitously, her name might as well have pre-destined a future in the spotlight…
This unique and undeniable approach caught the attention of Eleven Seven Music Group and Better Noise Records who signed her in 2015. Amassing a bevy of ideas, she hit the studio with super producer Howard Benson `{`My Chemical Romance, Chris Cornell, Halestorm, Kelly Clarkson`}` to record what would become her full-length debut, Coming In Hot. “Diamante is the only true heir to the female rock throne that has been vacant since Joan Jett’s heyday,” says Howard Benson.
Her single “Coming In Hot”—out June 16th 2017—seesaws between an arena-filling chant and a robust and raucous riff. At the center, she confidently serves up the knockout refrain, “Whether you’re ready or not, I’m coming in hot!”

Rock ‘n’ roll has never sounded, looked, or felt like Diamante on Coming In Hot.

New melodic rock band "Rian" debut album out in july.

Rian - Out of the darkness
Release: 22-07-2017 

Rian is a melodic hard rock band from Stockholm, Sweden.
The guys have spent the last year working on their debut album ‘Out Of The Darkness’ with producer Daniel Flores (Mind’s Eye, Find Me, The Murder of My Sweet). Frontman Richard Andermyr was a fan of Daniel’s work and wanted to see if he could imagine mixing their recordings. After listening to the demos, he instantly understood the potential and said that he was ready to not only to mix, but also to produce and record their album.
The result is ‘Out Of The Darkness’, a powerful, melodic hard rock record that is filled with hooks, harmonies and a gritty edge that gives them an original sound.
Their influences are many, including Bon Jovi, Chicago, Dokken, FM, Gary Moore, Giant, Journey, Metallica, Skid Row, Toto, Van Halen, Warrant, Whitesnake and Winger.
Richard Andermyr discovered his songwriting skills in the late 90s. In 2000 he moved to the USA for studies and teamed up with metal band Black Prizm. Back in Sweden Richard formed the hard rock band Whisperwave, who reached the finals in the Emergenza Festival 2 years in a row and were invited by Europe’s Ian Haugland to play live on the Swedish radio station “Rockklassiker” The guys rehearsed and recorded demos in Richard’s basement; in the beginning of 2016 they started to see a strong album forming. They were right.

Rian’s powerful debut album will be released worldwide on July 22nd via Melodic rock records. Pre-orders are available via Melodicrock.com

The video for Rian’s title track ‘Out Of The Darkness’ can be watched here.

classic AOR band Da Vinci return after 25 years with new album

Da Vinci - I've come all this way
Release: 25-08-2017 

With the release of “Ambition Rocks", their first album in 25 years, and with a new lineup, AOR & Classic Rock band Da Vinci returns with brand new songs.
The group was formed in Norway back in 1986, and after a short round with demos, the band got a record deal with Polygram Norway and released their debut album the following year.
Looking back on the Norwegian melodic rock of the 80’s, one of the bands to leave a major impression were undoubtedly Oslo’s Da Vinci. Enjoying as much radio play and charting nationally in the same league as Return, Stage Dolls and TNT, Da Vinci released two albums, Da Vinci and ”Back in the Business” and a single in 91 “Ain't No Goodbyes/ Blame it on the radio”.
Their greatest hits were “Forever in My Heart” and “Tarquinia” from the first album; and “Call Me a Liar” and “9&10” from “Back in Business”. DaVinci was touring constantly from late 86 to 92 and did over 600 performances in Norway. They also played as support for Status Quo on their Christmas Remedy tour in 1989 in Great Britain together with Ole Evenrude. The last concerts were two gigs at Wembley Arena. They split up in 93, but Selboskar, Westlie and Aass continued to write songs together for a few years. Some of these demo songs were illegally released in Europe.

"I've Come All This Way" is the first single of Da Vinci's new album "Ambition Rocks" which will be released through AOR Heaven records on august 25th !
