THE MUSIKLADEN RECORDINGS

Band:RAMONES
Album:THE MUSIKLADEN RECORDINGS
Label:SIREENA
Format:DVD & CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

On September 13th, 1978, the RAMONES were guests in the tv-studios of Radio Bremen. It was the bands first tv appearance in Europe . They played 25 titles in 50 minutes and left an ecstatic audience. Here for the first time is the complete unabridged show with all encores for the first time on dvd plus a bonus cd of the complete show.

For the band it must have been quite a shock when they entered the stage at the tv-studio of Radio Bremen. Although the slightly ragged backdrop of MUSIKLADEN was okay to Joey, Dee Dee, Johnny and Marky Ramone, this was not valid to the main group of the audience. Styled and bored people sat in front of the stage as if they were a leftover from the last Baccara gig. Joerg Sonntag, today director and editor, former assistant director of Mike Leckebusch, remembers in an interview (bonus-title on the dvd) that the night before the concert he strolled around the bars and pubs of Bremen and gave away free tickets. Therefore at least a part of the audience consisted of punks and rockers. For the American punk legends this first tv-appearance with a mixed audience that they turned around resulted in the break through into Europe- the rest is history.

On DVD and CD for the very first time and a must for every Ramones fan : TRACK LISTING Rockaway Beach / Teenage Lobotomy / Blitzkrieg Bop / I don't Want You / Go Mental / Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment / You're Gonna Kill That Girl / Don't Come Close / I Don't Care / She's The One / Sheena Is A Punk Rocker / Havana Affair / Commando / Needles & Pins / Surfin' Bird / Cretin Hop / Listen To My Heart / California Sun / I Don't Wanna Walk Around With You / Pinhead / Do You Wanna Dance / Judy Is A Punk / Today Your Love, Tomorrow The World / Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue / We Are A Happy Family

TOWARDS THE MEGALITH

Band:DISMA
Album:TOWARDS THE MEGALITH
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Comprised of individuals who have been involved with legendary and cult acts from their respective scenes, the new gods of U.S. death metal, DISMA, have already caused quite a stir in the underground death metal scene, most notably because their vocalist is none other than one of the most influential and legendary death metal vocalists of all time, ex-INCANTATION vocalist Craig Pillard. DISMA would be the first time Pillard has actively sung in a death metal band for over a decade, as well as DISMA incorporating members such as legendary underground musicians as Daryl Kahan (CITIZENS ARREST, ASSUCK), Bill Venner (who was also an early INCANTATION member) and members who have been involved in other acts such as FUNEBRARUM, and METHADRONE respectively.

With only one demo tape under their repertoire, no new death metal band has created the buzz in the underground as DISMA have as DISMA are already considered one of the most powerful and heaviest bands in the death metal underground today. By creating their own, yet familiar sound which incorporates the feel, aesthetic and vibe of true-to-heart old school death metal, DISMA carry the old school death metal tradition today by creating a work of a challenging and ultimately brutal and sophisticated nature.

In what will be seen as one of the most memorable and best death metal releases to surface in 2011, “Towards The Megalith” is an album that will be recognized immediately as a death metal pillar, where in turn DISMA will already be considered within the echelons of today’s death metal’s elite.

 

 

THE DEVIL`S FRACTAL

Band:AVICHI
Album:THE DEVIL`S FRACTAL
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Masterminded by one of America’s most prominent black metal musicians, namely multi-instrumentalist Andrew Markuszewski (who is also a part of NACHTMYSTIUM and LORD MANTIS), AVICHI’s second full-length “The Devil’s Fractal” (the follow-up to 2007’s “The Divine Tragedy”) will mark AVICHI’s stance as one of the most important U.S. black metal bands, and likewise “The Devil’s Fractal” will make its mark as the most prominent U.S. black metal album of 2011.

A concept album on the histroy of Luifcer, a gaze upon the world through the eyes of the adversary, and severed into seven chapters, “The Devil’s Fractal” is a dark and sinister journey through the realm of progressive and intricately structured epic black metal. Comparable to the likes of such revered black metal pantheon acts as DEATHSPELL OMEGA, with AVICHI, Markuszewski has created a stunning black metal opus that embraces the genre’s true essence (musically, lyrically, and aesthetically), one in which will go down as one of the notable black metal releases of the year.

 

 

PORTAL OF SORROW

Band:XASTHUR
Album:PORTAL OF SORROW
Label:VIVA HATE
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Xasthur began in late 1995-early 1996. The band had more than a few unreliable members between ’96 and ’99 until finally becoming a solo project in 1999 through 2010 with all albums and music written and recorded by Malefic/Scott. Through those several years, the band relied very little on guest musicians. The music and the idea behind it was not quite the same as many standard bands in the black metal genre, it was more so based on mirrors and mirroring the thoughts, fears, nightmares, hatred, disgust, negativity and weaknesses dwelling inside the psyche of human beings and a bleak outlook on life or death from the artist’s point of view. During the bands history, Xasthur released 8 full-length albums, as well as numerous demos and EP’s and worked with labels such as HYDRA HEAD RECORDS and SOUTHERN LORD - (It is no coincidence that Scott of Xasthur has also been active with bands such as cult Sunno)))

And now it finally ends with the album “Portal of Sorrow” , this album features a folk singer by the name of Marissa Nadler and it turned out to be an unconventional ending to the band. It had always been debatable which ‘genre’ of music to categorize Xasthur under; some say black metal yet some have very different interpretations of the music. The needing of a category was never important to Xasthur because the band was inspired by several other sounds of music outside of the black metal clique’.

And if that is not enough Scott AKA Xasthur is doing his SECOND and very last INTERVIEW ever with the ZERO TOLERANCE mag who decided to have this as 6 page title story….

 

 

ZARBO

Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

ZARBO are an amazing Americana (U.K. based) Duo comprising of Andy Heath (Lead Voice, Guitars, Foot Drums, Kazoo, Harmonicas) and Paul Bishop (Banjo, Dobro, Foot percussion, Backing Vocals). The songs, all written by Andy, cover topics as diverse as loneliness, being healed by the hands of Elvis and working in a Supermarket. Their live shows have a vaudeville medicine show style which feature no loops or backing tracks, 1920's drums and percussion played with their feet and mysterious harmonies produced by a home-made lever operated harmony machine. Vintage stage lighting and theatrical stage props and backdrop complete the magical world of Zarbo. Andy Heath has written for artists including Ghostland (featuring Eno and Sinead O' Connor). Chris Wright, the founder of Chysalis Records, was moved to pronounce him as one of the finest songwriters in the UK. Paul Bishop is a top Nashville session player in his own right and was hailed as the 'Hendrix of the Banjo' by Record Collector Magazine.

WHERE`S MY DADDY?

Band:WEST COAST POP ART EXPERIMENTAL BAND
Album:WHERE`S MY DADDY?
Label:Sunbeam
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Recorded shortly after this legendary Californian psychedelic band had left Reprise (where they’d made three classics), this oddity is more pop-based than their previous efforts, though the eccentric influence of frontman Bob Markley is still strong. Released in the summer of 1969, it sold poorly and hasn’t been widely heard since, making this 180g LP reissue especially welcome.

Fifth LP by psych legends -  Originally issued in 1969 -  First 180g vinyl reissue - LTD!

Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

This was in fact the final album made by psychedelic legends The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, recorded and released towards the end of 1969, and released under a new name in a final attempt to find commercial success. A far cry from the experimental rock of earlier release, the album contains melodic songs and delicate arrangements, though the eccentric influence of frontman Bob Markley is as strong as ever, making it essential for fans of the band.

UNMODERN PLUS

Band:DER MODERNE MAN
Album:UNMODERN PLUS
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

In the fall of 1979 the band DER MODERNE MAN was founded in Hannover. After the release of the e.p. "Umsturz im Kinderzimmer" at Heile Welt Records the band was signed to the legendary NO FUN Records of Hollow Skai. The band's debut album called "80 Tage auf See", appeared in 1980. The reaction to this album was initially unenthusiastic. In spring 1981 the single "Sandmann"/"Baggersee" met more interest. The leading German music magazin "SOUNDS" attested that the quartet has been delivered with the single "a good piece of German pop music." The band now belonged to the most important and most significant new German pop groups. In summer 1982 the second album "Unmodern" appeared at NO Fun Records. The LP was consistently highly praised. At a time when the more conservative German rock groups woke up and frantically tried to find connection to what is en vogue, DER MODERNE MAN flirted with a wink to be unfashionable.That concerned wit, humor and more relaxed approach to the diversity of style, the attempted competition is light years ahead. Now here comes "Unmodern" for the first time on CD. Many bonus tracks are added, like demos and the songs of the extremely rare single "Welt" (of which there's only 3 pieces). The icing is a new version of "Anaconda", recorded by the band in 2009.

STRANGE HEXES

Band:IMAAD WASIF
Album:STRANGE HEXES
Label:VIVA HATE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Folk

After his album The Voidist caught people’s eyes in late 2010 Imaad Wasif now officialy puts out his album STRANGE HEXES. This was originally released by himself and only available during he was on tour with the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s some time ago.

Imaad Wasif reached number 2 in the ranking in the Visions Magazine Soundcheck in November 2010 and reached number 2 in the ranking being one of the top 5 albums in 2010. Now he is coming back to Europe on tour visiting the Roadburn Festival and Friction Fest along with this beautiful release. In another life, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Imaad Wasif might have been a poet or a priest. He draws inspiration from beyond the veil, seeking connections and cosmic patters in the hopes of expressing the simplest but most profound message to his listeners: We are not alone. Early on he played live and in the studio with Lou Barlow’s Folk Implosion. In 2006, Kill Rock Stars released Wasif’s self-titled solo debut, an acoustic psych gem. Around the same time, he was enlisted as a touring guitarist and opening act for Yeah YeahYeahs. Sophomore album Strange Hexes revealed Wasif’s varied influences. The album was recorded with his band Two Part Beast (Bobb Bruno and Adam Garcia) and self-released in March 2008. That album was the first to hint at the distinctive sound Wasif has ultimately crafted for himself; a blast of postmodern psychedelic rock that is at once potent and refined. The album will be re-released by Viva Hate Records in 2010.

His collaboration with Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, and “Little” Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and Dead Weather on the score for the Spike Jonze-directed film adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are hits theaters in October. The theme of love in its many guises, both as redemption and call to arms, is one that Wasif returns to again and again in his songs. Its mythical quality becomes a springboard from which he explores the mysteries of life and the universe on his third album, The Voidist. Recorded with Two Part Beast, plus guests Dale Crover (Melvins) and Greg Burns (Red Sparowes), by Chad Bamford (Weezer) with additional recordings by Mathias Schneeberger (The Obsessed, Gutter Twins), the release is due from Viva Hate Records in October 2010.

AND THE ORIGINAL FLYING MACHINE

Band:JAMES TAYLOR
Album:AND THE ORIGINAL FLYING MACHINE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

JAMES TAYLOR & THE ORIGINAL FLYING MACHINE 1967. This is a unique collection of demos and incomplete versions of early songs by Taylor's first group, recorded at the start of his long and prosperous career. Teaming with his boyhood friend Danny Kortchmar and singing lead is a young Taylor who sounds very little like the artist we've come to know. Instead, this is a very "San Francisco Summer Of Love"-sounding collection that is reflective of the time it was recorded. Still, there are glimmers of Taylor's future style as in the gently sung "Brighten Your Night With My Day" and parts of the psychedelic demo "Kootch's Song." An obvious Motown influence is evident in the funky "Night Owl" and "Knocking 'Round the Zoo." New versions of these two tracks are included for a look at a more polished performer a little further down the line. This disc is a treat for any James Taylor fan!

FIRST TIME ON CD!

 

 

BASH

Band:BILLY BREMNER
Album:BASH
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

One of rock's most distinctive guitarists, BREMNER originally released "Bash!" in 1984 (on Arista UK) after recording several solo singles and following the now-legendary "Seconds of Pleasure" LP (1980) released with his ROCKPILE bandmates Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, and Terry Williams. Produced by Will Birch (The Records), the tracks on "Bash!" were co-written by Bremner and Birch, except for Elvis Costello's "Shatterproof" and Difford/Tilbrook's "When Love Goes To Sleep." Born and raised in Scotland, Bremner was noticed quickly for his guitar prowess as the British pub-rock scene exploded in the '70s. His relationship with Edmunds and Lowe resulted in a number of musical and songwriting contributions to their solo albums but only the one "official" Rockpile album: "Seconds of Pleasure" (CBS, 1980), which featured Bremner on lead vocals on two cuts. After the group's demise, Bremner recorded and released "Bash!" but the album inexplicably escaped notice. Along with his work in Rockpile, BREMNER has also made his mark as a sideman for The Pretenders (playing lead on “Back on the Chain Gang” and “My City Was Gone”), Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Kirsty McCall, and many others. After the breakup of Rockpile, Billy spent nine years in Los Angeles, then relocated to Nashville in the early '90s, where he focused on writing and continued providing ace musical backing to name artists. 

Former member of highly acclaimed British Pop Supergroup Rockpile.

 

 

A GOOD WEEK`S WORK

Band:BILLY BREMNER
Album:A GOOD WEEK`S WORK
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Bremner, known to most for his work in ROCKPILE (with Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, and Terry Williams), has also made his mark as a sideman for The Pretenders (playing lead on "Back on the Chain Gang" and "My City Was Gone"), Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Kirsty McCall, and many others. With "A Good Week's Work," he steps back out front for a no-holds-barred effort featuring plenty of rock sprinkled with some power pop -- the formula that made Rockpile a late '70s/early '80s favorite. Recorded in early 1998 in northern Sweden (close to the Arctic Circle!), "A Good Week's Work" was literally recorded and mixed in seven days -- a tribute to Bremner's abilities as a guitar whiz and his strong rhythm section. All 13 tracks are Bremner originals (many co-written with producer-writer Don Morrell) that showcase what he does best: no-bull guitar-driven rock delivered with heart and finesse...

LIVE AT JACKSONS LANE

Band:DAVE SWARBRICK
Album:LIVE AT JACKSONS LANE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

This is an entirely solo 1991 performance by Dave Swarbrick, just a man and his fiddle. Thankfully this is a predominantly instrumental set as Swarbrick's voice is a bit shaky on the opening selection "Bonny Black Hare." His voice seemed to solidify only slightly on the next vocal piece "Lovely Nancy." Singing, however, was never Swarbrick's selling point; rather, it's his precise yet soulful playing that has influenced many through the years. "Sleepy Maggie," "Lady Mary Hayes Scotch Measure," and "Bunker Hill" are reflective of his unique and perhaps unmatched style but they are marred by his uncontrollable grunts and snortles (à la Ian Anderson). On the other hand, some listeners might find such outbursts endearing or simply the embodiment of his total absorption into his craft. Always a fine interpreter of legendary Irish bard Turlough O'Carolan Swarbrick offers another soulful rendition of the lamentable "Sheebeg and Shemore," which he first recorded on 1977's Swarbrick 2

 

 

ON REFLECTION

Band:ELIZA CARTHY AND NANCY KERR
Album:ON REFLECTION
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

On Reflection," a compilation of early work and previously unreleased material from one of folk's brightest new performers -- Eliza Carthy -- and her former partner Nancy Kerr.

A unique and engaging artist with an impeccable pedigree, Eliza Carthy has recently taken the contemporary music world by storm, with her "Red Rice" Topic recording and, just last year, her Warner Bros. release "Angels and Cigarettes." But her earliest recordings, "Eliza Carthy and Nancy Kerr" (1993) and "Shape of Scrape" (1995) -- when she was recording with fellow fiddler/vocalist Nancy Kerr -- are amazing glimpses into the talent and pizzazz of Carthy (*and* Kerr) well before she burst onto the contemporary folk scene. "On Reflection" culls tracks from both of the above-named albums and also includes two Nancy Kerr tracks from her Fellside albums and three unreleased tracks from Carthy and Kerr

 

 

BEST OF BRITISH

Band:IAN MCLAGAN
Album:BEST OF BRITISH
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Held in high affection because of his days as keyboard player in the Small Faces and their boozy offspring the Faces, Ian McLagan has spent the better of two decades lending support to such legends as Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. While his former frontman Rod Stewart went on to achieve platinum status, McLagan has kept it real, continuing the spirit of ramshackle, good-time glory that made his first two bands (and bandmate Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance) so memorable. "She Stole It!" is a brokenhearted rant against a girlfriend who nicked his collection of Hank Williams, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles records, and tells McLagan's whole story. His heart beats faster for pure soul, R&B, and country, but as a Londoner, he delivers quintessentially English rock such as "Suzie Gotta Sweet Face" and lost-love songs such as "Warm Rain." If you're longing to hear an album just like Rod used to make, Best of British is it.

BREEZES

Band:KATE WOLF
Album:BREEZES
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

"Breezes" features 12 cuts, all of which were co-written by Wolf, and which feature her on lead vocals and guitar. The sessions were recorded in June of 1973 over a few days in San Francisco. While the recordings are somewhat raw and unpolished, the album showcases Kate's voice and her beautiful delivery. Accompanying Kate on these early sessions are guitarist/mandolinist Don Coffin, who went on to perform regularly with Kate, and bassist Lionel Kilberg, who co-wrote the songs with Kate. This album is a MUST for collectors and Kate Wolf fans.

 

 

BOTH EARS AND THE TAIL

Band:MARTIN CARTHY AND DAVE SWARBRICK
Album:BOTH EARS AND THE TAIL
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

"A 1966 concert recorded live at The Folkus Folk Club in Nottingham, England. Carthy and Swarbrick played as a duo for three years, recording three albums in the latter 1960s. Swarbrick went on to join Fairport Convention in 1969 at the time they recorded the album 'Liege and Lief', marking his premiere recording sessions as a full time member. He was the backbone of the group for many years, leaving in 1984. Meanwhile, Carthy continued to perform and record as a solo performer and enjoyed stints in Steeleye Span, The Watersons (and later Waterson:Carthy) and Brass Monkey. However, the buzz that the duo felt in playing with each other brought them back together several more times in later years with a couple of albums in the early 1990s and then again in 2006 with their masterpiece 'Straws In The Wind'. More than 30 years after this recording was made, the duo hit the road together once more and this album provides a striking contrast and vital history of these two pillars of English folk music whose live concert performances redefine the nature of their songs".

In the '70s he released six albums of his own -- including the critically-acclaimed "Last Chance" -- but his inability to break through commerically lead him to retreat somewhat from the business in the 1980s. In the '90s, he placed a cut on Bonnie Raitt's "Luck of the Draw" smash CD, then toured "in the round" with Midge Ure, Rosie Flores, Don Henry, and Darden Smith. The tour sparked his creative juices, and he has been writing at a feverish clip ever since.

 

 

AIN`T NO JOKE

Band:THE VOLEBEATS
Album:AIN`T NO JOKE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Before Americana caught on as a phenomenon in the mid-'90s, the Volebeats were hot on the trail of such seminal groups as Rank and File, The Long Ryders, and others who were combining roots rock with a British invasion hookiness and a healthy dose of twang.Born in and around the Motor City in 1988, the Volebeats formed due to a mutual boredom of and displeasure for trendy bands and music. Starting as an acoustic outfit, lead guitarist/vocalist Matthew Smith and vocalist/guitarist Jeff Oakes began writing songs with Terry Rohm and Jeff's brother Al. With Keir McDonald (from Detroit's Medusa Cyclone) on drums, the Volebeats began performing on street corners throughout the Detroit suburbs.For the first few years of its existence, the band had a revolving group of musicians that included another Oakes brother, Brian, on upright bass, drummer Mike Murphy and guitarist Mark Niemenski (both from another Detroit band Hysteric Narcotics), drummer Bill Peterson and Rebecca Kaplan on fiddle. Fusing hardcore country and folk music with a melodic pop flair and rock and roll sensibility, the Volebeats released their debut "Ain't No Joke" on Relapse Records in 1989, with current guitarist and songwriter Bob McCreedy -- who had played with Oakes in The Frames in 1981 -- joining the group shortly thereafter.Over the next few years they recorded a single for Icon Records and could be found on various compilations. Then in 1994, the Volebeats signed with the Safe House label, releasing their second full-length, "Up North" which garnered the group critical acclaim. A six-song EP, "Bittersweet" was released in 1995, and featured a cover of Barry White's "I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More, Baby." With drummer Scott Michalski and bassist Russell Ledford joining the band, the Volebeats' lineup was solidified as the group entered the studio to record its 1997 release "The Sky And The Ocean." [The Volebeats released "Solitude," their fourth full-length release, in 1999, also on Safe House.

NAKED

Band:THE YUYA
Album:NAKED
Label:DAY JOB
Format:7" VINYL
Genre:Alt Rock

The YuYa have a peerless, unique, but contemporary sound with the music, created by the Italian flair and musical craft of Eliseo Soardi, already drawing comparisons with Gogol Bordello and Beck, complimented with powerful lead vocals from the London born Constance Dalrymple, the like of which have not been heard since the days of classic female soul singers such as Etta James and Nina Simone. This combination makes for acoustic fuelled, avant-garde, toe-tapping music that is as perfect for sunny Sunday mornings as it is for sing-along Friday evenings. Beautifully recorded and mixed in the picturesque town of Teatro Pieve di Ledro in Italy by Nilo Santoni at Jamboree Studios and mastered by the multi-talented Fran Ashcroft of Happy Beat Records (Gorillaz, Dandy Warhols). The single is an infectious debut for this London based two-piece with the up-tempo track “Naked” as the A;side, which is wonderfully balanced by the introspective B-side, “Rocketman”.

VISTI E IMPREVISTI

Band:GLINCOLTI
Album:VISTI E IMPREVISTI
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

The project Glincolti began in 2007 from an idea of Alessandro Tedesco, then OJM's guitarist, and his friend and drummer Roberts Colbertaldo. After a few months rehearsing and experimenting they decided to get Andrea Zardo involved as bass player. His contribution started shaping the band's instrumental sound, basically made of a juxtaposition of neurotic riffs and melodic interludes, often leaving room for long unbounded improvisation parts. In 2008 a second guitar has been unexpectedly preferred to the more traditional choice of a leading voice in order to complete the sound of the band. The six strings sound of Federico-Jek-Iacono, whose chords and psychedelic arpeggios perfectly blend with those of Alessandro and the whole band's sound. Together they kept on brewing up a groovy mixture of progressive rock, funk and jazz accurately displayed in the band'first record "Visti & Imprevisti". From the funky-jazz riff of the opening track leading through the dark and wild atmospheres of the "Pirati" suite, their music tells a story made of various situations, really unlike one another but all united by the same unbroken thread. Each song ends up into the following one that slyly brings along something of the previous.

 

 

REBORN

Band:MUZZLED
Album:REBORN
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Reborn is the first official album from muzzled.The CD distinguishes itself thanks to the coarse and powerful sound, which could be compared to other groups in the stoner-rock scene, combined with a significantly sixties style that brings us back to the real background of this band, almost as to glimpse from far away the "Zeppelin" airship. The music is pure energy and andrenaline, the very same energy that can be heard during live concerts, Muzzled completes all of it with a touch of psychedelia, embracing experimental and "noise" sound. Among the songs there are a few references to the past such as the pinkfloydish "Barrett" and revisitations such as Gimme Shelter from the Stones, with the collaboration of David Martin (OJM), vocals. Other remarkable collaborators to this project are: Stefano Pasky (OJM&Poison Deluxe), cymbals, in "Nice Times", "Sad Sun" and "Shiny doors".Max Ear (OJM&Poison Deluxe) percussions, in "Crimson Circus, part III".

 

 

BARONS AND BANKERS

Band:VIC DU MONTE`S PERSONA NON GRATA
Album:BARONS AND BANKERS
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

"Barons & bankers" is a blow on those responsible for the world crisis, seen through the punk attitude and the anger of someone who grew up in garages. Even when this fourtet plays a ballad ("Truth and Consequence") there is an underlying angst, common in those who got the blues. Yet another strong feature of this record is post punk, delivered both in a visceral, heartfelt way as in the challanging and pounding "Raising to the Round" and in a more intellectual Talking-Heads-like way in the groovy "70og box". While the rock'n'roll suggestions in "Running to the Moon" may heavily hint to The Clash, possibly mixed with a 50s style, in "Vanished from the scene" the band is let loose on a wild beat ride, with some very good blues in it.

DAMNED LOVE

Band:THE SADE
Album:DAMNED LOVE
Label:GO DOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

"DAMNED LOVE" is the title of the debut album by THE SADE, the band led by OJM guitar player Andrew Pozzy. This italian band, supported by Go Down Records and formed in 2008, has already self produced an EP (THE SADE EP - 2009) and played a considerable number of gigs all over Italy, but it is with DAMNED LOVE that they establish their presence in the italian and international rock scene. 13 tracks, including both old and new songs the band has played in the course the past two years, damned explosive rock that hits the listener's ears with striking force. They range from powerful hard-rock riffs to speed rock and reckless rock'n'roll, with the occasional swedish touch and a mostly american taste encompassing blues, stoner and doom-psychedelia as well as easy-listening tunes and shades of dark, new wave, punk and glam. All is performed with astounding groove and energy. The 60s are hinted at, the 70s are recalled, the 80s and the 90s are explored and more versatile and modern attitude is reached in the end. The tracks in this eclectic and multi-faceted album are nonetheless consistent in music and lyrics, to the point of almost constituting a concept album about doomed love, sex, rock, life and death, all laced with dark psychedelic visions. The production is remarkable, with its own poetic quality, a "new" rock that never stoops to commonplace solutions and skillfully mixes different influences into a recognizable style, thanks in non small measure to an outstanding performance. Visionary, powerful, twisted and ultimately rock!

Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Endovein are influenced by bands like Forbidden, Testament, Megadeth & Anthrax with a particular attention for technical riffs and complex structures.

“There is something about Endovein's Waiting For Disaster that prevents the album from falling to the bottom of the crop despite its formally rather typical characteristics. Musically this is thrash metal, but the band's good-natured and often outright uplifting sound adds a certain positive vibe to the output.” - Classic Thrash (Webzine)

 

 

UNDER THE FLIGHT OF CROWS

Band:MOONRISE
Album:UNDER THE FLIGHT OF CROWS
Label:PUNISHMENT 18
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

The band was originally founded in Italy in 1999 and this is their full-length, debut album. Melodic, raw and different, this record, from Italian Moonrise, sees the band finally following up their two demos from the early 2000s. It brings back memories of the mid 90s European melodic death metal scene when the form was not quite as predictable and stylized. This album is a mix of smooth melodic death metal lashed by aggressive riffs and is a superb mix of violence and melody. Each aspect of every human's dark soul is captured on these seven, carefully selected songs.

 

 

VISUAL VIOLENCE

Band:PITIFUL REIGN
Album:VISUAL VIOLENCE
Label:PUNISHMENT 18
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

"A typical sample of old school thrash metal, from the artwork and the production to the lyrics and of course the music. Influenced by bands like Exodus, Tankard, D.R.I." Metal Invader (Webzine)

"What I faced in Visual Violence was surely something I didn't expect at all! It is one of those times you are prepared to listen to one more boring Thrash Metal band with shitty riffs and a screamer behind the microphone, but something is different… You press PLAY button and a huge punch comes out of your speakers to make your nose bleed and show you that if you look around you, you can still find quality Thrash Metal!"

FULGOR

Band:DETESTOR
Album:FULGOR
Label:Masterpiece Distr
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

After years of inactivity, finally in 2011 Detestor have come back with their last album “Fulgor”. In this album these guys propose extremely powerful rhythmics coupled with biting and melodic riffs as in the true tradition of the band. The main novelty in the new CD is given by the variety of the voices that range from cavernous growls to powerful screams and melodic vocals. Detestor have been one of the most active and known extreme bands in the Italian panorama in the nineties, and managed to create an original sound that characterizes most of their musical production, including the ten tracks of this new and devastating “Fulgor”. The melodic death that characterizes the highly acclaimed debut album “In the Circle of Time” comes back to life within “Fulgor” while being boosted by more modern, darker and more aggressive sounds. The sudden switches from dark, slow and sad atmospheres to real bombs of drums, guitars and extreme vocals convey really lethal mooDS

The new full length is the result of the powerful new sound of Endless Pain, which started with many Thrash Metal influences, now unleashed a Death Metal riffs fury, with raw and very old school style, but the vocal line and the powerful drum beats are very modern. Blazing fast drums, catchy riffs and a powerful voice are the ingredients of "Chronicles of Death", born from the experience of a band that had the honour of participating in events such Metalcamp (2005), Sun Valley in Rock (2003 ), Tradate Iron Fest (2004), sharing the stage with bands like Destruction, Tankard, Dismember, Blood Red Throne, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Sodom, Raw Power, Decapitated Etc.

 

 

ROSE OF JERICHO

Band:MORGANA
Album:ROSE OF JERICHO
Label:Masterpiece Distr
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Rose of Jericho marks the return after a long silence of Morgana, the undisputed Italian Metal Queen, but also an artist with an international dimension. An album of Hard Rock that intense and angry, working with Tommy Talamanca (Sadist) makes it at times dark and mysterious. Ten songs that capture the listener with a mix of strength and sensuality with addictive riffs and catchy refrains. Among them a very successful cover of a song of 1966 "Bang Bang" by Sonny Bono, arranged and reinterpreted in heavy current and a reinterpretation of one of the most representative pieces of the career of Morgana: "Lady Winter" Morgana has also strongly backed an instrumental song that pays homage to Tommy Talamanca’s genius and closes an intelligent and eclectic album. A comeback in grand style!

CUORE BLUES ROCK N ROLL CD

Band:CAPPANERA
Album:CUORE BLUES ROCK N ROLL CD
Label:JOLLY ROGER
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Cappanera Fabio and Roberto were founders , the guitarist and drummer rispectively of Strana Officina, maybe the most Italian HM band known worldwide. Apart from the Strana Officina , they released in 1991 a solo album (“non cè piu’ mondo”) and called this project simply Cappanera. In 1992/1993 they were releasing the second Cappanera album, focusing more into melodies and AOR sound wth strong blues influences. They got a contact by Italian Major WARNER to produce the record. That’s why they decided to call a real talented vocalist and they choose the strong voice of Morby (Sabotage, Domine, Labyrinth); on bass they recruited Andrea Castelli (Shabby Trick) also in the first Cappanera album. They recorded all guitars and voice in 1993 plus some midi tracks (keyboards, drums, bass) to get the deal, but just before signin the Warner contract, the Cappanera bros died ina car accident. Now after about 20 years, thanks to Rolando Cappanera (son of Roberto) and Andrea Cappanera (son of Fabio) the album finally is revealed. The missing part were recorded in 2010/11 : Rolando recorded drums following the midi parts of his father, Andrea Castelli rerecorded bass parts, then a lot of guests joined in to help the project. This album is living testimony of two great musicians we have lost too early.
