Today, NWOBHM band MONUMENT
release the video for "William Kidd", the second single from
their upcoming album "Hellhound".
The video for "William Kidd"
comes one week prior to the singles release date on 27.04.
"William Kidd" is a song that
tells the tale of the infamous privateer of the same name and finds the band in
incredible form giving some of their best performances yet on record.
Produced and mixed by Tony Newton (IRON MAIDEN - Book Of Souls
Live Chapter) and mastered by Ade Emsey (IRON MAIDEN) at Table of
Tone Mastering, the track offers four and a half minutes of blistering, TRUE
British heavy metal in the vein of what has so far made MONUMENT a
sensation with fans across the world looking for the next great band to come out
of the United Kingdom.
their respects to RAINBOW, covering the track "Long
Live Rock ‘n’ Roll" as the B Side of the 7"
I just love this band! In my humble opinion, these U.K melodic rockers are one of the best bands from England over the last decade!! They achieve to combine perfectly the old-school of melodic hard rock with a more fresh and modern approach that makes each and every single album to flow into perfection.
The story of this sleaze hard rock band started back in 2011 in Italy. 17 Crash is a band that is heavenly influenced by the late 80's U.S. sleaze melodic hard rock scene and their aim is to bring back this sound big and loud. The debut, "Reading Your Dirty Minds", was released in 2015 through Demon Doll Records and left a promise for bigger things in the near future.
US hard rock band, BULLETS AND OCTANE, have released a new single for 'Waking Up Dead', the title track of their new album ‘Waking Up Dead‘, due out on May 25th worldwide via Bad MoFo Records/Cargo Records UK. The new single is available on all digital platforms: Spotify, iTunes and more. A promo video teaser can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/mABW0zD_DYs
Out of the ashes from SHOTGUN EXPRESS, the dirtiest band ever out of
Stuttgart/Germany, MOTOR CITY MAYHEM will continue their legacy with an even
dirtier album. SHOTGUN EXPRESS has been the winner of the German Rock and Pop
Award as the best (Hard) Rock band back in 2012. They have been on tour with
GREAT WHITE before they parted ways with their singer. Instead of continuing
with their old brand, they decided to do a complete new start. With the guitarists Johnny & Scott and bassist Robin as well, the main
people from back then are involved in MOTOR CITY MAYHEM. Singer Van also is from
the old family, since he was a temporary replacement as a guitarist for Scott in
SHOTGUN EXPRESS. The line-up is completed by drummer Armin who came from their
fellows STROKER ACE.
Now this is a release that I was looking forward to listening to! IMPERIUM, the project of Mika Brushane, is back in business with album number two. "Beyond The Stars" is entitled the band's brand new opus and it's once again a great sample of pure melodic rock bliss. At this point I have to say that the debut, "Dreamhunter”, which was released back in 2016 was a damn fine record that can't be missed by any fan of the melodic rock community.
Swedish Melodic Hard Rock Band, VOLSTER (feat. ex-members of Masquerade and House Of Heavy) have released a new lyric video for ‘Ends With Me‘, the song is taken from their forthcoming album 'Perfect Storm', out on April 20th via Rock Of Angels Records.

ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE DELUXE REISSUES OF ‘DENIM AND LEATHER’, ‘POWER & THE
GLORY’ AND ‘CRUSADER’ AFTER THE FIRST THREE RELEASES (‘SAXON’, ‘WHEELS OF STEEL’
AND ‘STRONG ARM OF THE LAW’) ALL BREAK INTO THE OFFICIAL UK ROCK TOP 40 THIS
over the decades have gone from being pioneers of the New Wave Of British Heavy
Metal, to becoming one of the most successful UK rock acts of all time. The
truth, though, is that Saxon have always transcended trends and eras. From
1979's 'Saxon' album to new album ‘Thunderbolt’, the band have enjoyed
considerable success. Five Top 40 albums in the UK, with four Top 20 singles.
And they were similarly successful in other parts of the world as well. It's no
wonder their influence spread across the globe, and played a crucial role in the
way we look at hard rock and heavy metal today.
fourth album, Denim And Leather was originally released on 5th
October 1981. It was recorded at Aquarius Studios in Geneva. Arguably their most
successful record to date it spawned the classic singles ‘Princess Of The
Night’, ‘Never Surrender’ and the song ‘And The Band’s Played On’, which was
inspired by their appearance at the inaugural Monsters Of Rock festival in 1980.
This edition contains the B Sides of the ‘Never Surrender’ single and seven live
tracks recorded on the Denim And Leather tour of 1981.

fifth album, Power And The Glory was originally released on 21st
March 1983 and was produced by Jeff Glixman at Axis Sound Studios in Atlanta.
The album spawned two singles, ‘Nightmare’ and the title track, ‘Power And The
Glory’ and also marked the replacement of drummer Pete Gill with Nigel Glockler,
who remains a member of Saxon to this day. This version includes early working
demos of songs from the album, recorded in 1982. Including tracks that didn’t
make the final track listing
