THE DEAD DAISIES reveal a new video

The Dead Daisies, a collaboration of various well-known hardrock musicians like Dough Aldrich, John Corabi, Marco Mendoza and more, released their debut a while ago. Getting quite some positive feedback, the guys have been on tour, being the opener for e.g. Kiss and Whitesnake. This brought The Dead Daisies even more attention and increased the motivation level. Time to work on the studio album, which they did. August 5th is the release date for "Make Some Noise" and a first song/video was posted a couple of days ago.

"Long Way to Go" is the name of this tune that is a good vibe hardrocker, recorded earlier this year during a show in Herborn, Germany. Time for some good-time rock'n'roll.

Gruesome's new EP "Dimensions of Horror" will be published on May 20st. Here comes already a first track called "Forces of Death". Cool oldschool metal that shows again the influences of Death.

Italian modern metal outfit Lacuna Coil will release their new album "Delirium" on May 27th. Here comes the title track, a song that is 100% Lacuna Coil. I guess we can expect a quite strong album.



Veröffentlicht am 27. April 2016 von Markus W. in Ace Frehley, Kiss, Paul Stanley, Hardrock, Rock, News, Video, Free

Not only that after many years Ace Frehley and Paul Stanley can be heard playing together one song, now they also released a video for "Fire and Water". I think, it's an interesting title, since it seems very much like 'fire and water' can go together. The tune is a great Free cover version that sounds really good. But check it out yourself.

By the waym that title is from Frehley's latest release "Origins Vol. 1".

"Getaway" is the new video of German rockers Long Distance Calling. The tune is taken from the upcoming album "Trips" that's coming via Inside Out Music later this month. The band could gain German actor Ralf Richter for playing a role in this clip. All together a good package of music and visual approach. Nothing else expected from these guys.

Veröffentlicht am 15. April 2016 von Markus W. in Abba, MGT, H.I.M., Rock, Hardrock, Alternative Rock, News, Video

Some news from H.I.M. singer Ville Valo. He teamed-up with British guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (MGT) for recording an ABBA cover. The guys have chosen "Knowing me, Knowing you" but unfortunately it became a quite bloodless version of this exciting ABBA song. But get your own opinion.
