All Else Fails - The Forever Lie (2017)

Coming out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, ALL ELSE FAILS is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, the band infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.

A high energy live show that sets them apart from their peers has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Van’s Warped tour, Boonstock and opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.

The band’s award winning 2013 EP 'Fucktropolis' received world wide praise from industry publications around the world for its heavy dark beauty. 

Gearing up for their follow up 'The Forever Lie' due out February 17, 2017, the band is proud to exclusively premiere their first single and new video 'The Sons of Plenty' via GearGods.
"I've been waiting my entire musical career to light my guitar on fire and smash a drumset to pieces with it. This video is fucking awesome." comments vocalist/guitarist Barrett Klesko.

NORÐ - Alpha (2017)

NORÐ plays melodic progressive metalrock, powered by high octane energy and melancholic soundscapes. A unique style of heavy music with references to many different bands and genres and a dystopic lyrical universe about the human decadence. NORÐ reflects the nordic feeling with their combination of dreamy melodies, tight riffing and headbanger breaks.

NORÐ was formed in 2013 in Odense, Denmark. Originally formed by members from Denmark, Faroe Islands and Iceland with the ambition of creating heavy music with a nordic feeling combining dreamy soundscapes, tight riffing and headbanger breaks.
Within a year the first set was written and the band started playing live gigs. The crowd really embraced the music from the very beginning and recorded material was in demand. In 2016 the recording of the debut EP ”Alpha” began at Molten Rock Studio in Odense with Jesper Egeskov Sommerby. By the time the single Rosehip Garden hit the internet around christmas 2016 there was immediate international interest and the single received airplay in United States, Australia, Spain and other countries. ”Alpha” will be released digitally on March 3rd 2017 via Inverse Records.

The band just released a lyric video from the track Rosehip Garden and it is available here:

Rückwater - Bonehead (2017)

The band is Rückwater, a three-headed stoner rock monster hailing from Tampere, Finland. The record is Bonehead. Heartfelt lyrics, strong tunes, two asskickin’ lead singers and the boogie that varies from furious to mellow makes this record worth of listening.

Rückwater has shared a stage with names like Joey Belladonna and stoner legend Karma To Burn, so this really is a band to watch out for.

Release: 24 February 2017

Born in Rigside, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Jimis first Rock band was in 1978, singing mainly Rush & Deep Purple songs & so his passion for 'Classic Rock' had begun.  The next few years brought many hours of practise & to Paul Rodgers, David Coverdale & Ronnie James Dio for inspiration.

He began writing songs and formed the rock band Sahara whilst spending any spare time attending a gazzillion gigs at the Legendary 'Glasgow Apollo' till it closed in 1985. Various incarnations of the band ensued including a name change to "The Hardline" until they were picked up by Wet Wet Wet's manager Elliott Davis and offered a management contract on the strength of a demo tape.

Living now in York, Jimi has continued writing.
The vocalist moved on to spend two years as lead vocalist with Tribute Band 'A Foreigners Journey ' he toured extensively in the UK and Rhodes. Meeting new friends along the way, and his voice just got better and better so a decision was made to leave "A Foreigners Journey" and  the next adventure started. His latest project is a tribute to great American Melodic Rock with some great musicians and friends "Legends of AOR" debut gig was in Spain in front of a crowd of Rhodes Rockers, safe to say it was so emotional that tears were shed.

MIKE TRAMP - Maybe Tomorrow (2017)

 Two years after part three in the trilogy that marked the albums “Cobblestone Street”, “Museum” and “Nomad”, Mike Tramp is back with a brand new album entitled “Maybe Tomorrow”. The album is without doubt one of the Danish singer/songwriter’s finest albums so far, and the nature of the music is deeply personal and rooted in himself.

Mike Tramp explains:
“When people ask me, why I have made a new album and what it’s about, I find myself dumbfounded or even lost for words. Cause to me, what I do is who I am. It might have taken me quite a while to reach this place where I feel so at home, and also where I belong. A place where my music is simply an extension of who I am. It might not sound that interesting or mysterious! But in what other way can I express that my songwriting and music is the truthful life of Mike Tramp”.

“I don’t want to be anything else or try anything new. I am a torchbearer of my heroes and an offspring of my inspirations. I have not only moved away from the past, but I have grown and I have made my stand. When I listen to “Maybe Tomorrow”, I don’t just see myself, I now also see my faithful audience that have grown with me, and that is the best feeling of them all.”

Mike Tramp have recently finished another one of his massive US tours, and will be touring Europe extensively in support of “Maybe Tomorrow” – without doubt still one of the most hard-working men in the rock’n’roll industry!

“Maybe Tomorrow” was recorded at Medley studio, Copenhagen. Once again with his trusted partner Soren Andersen behind the knobs and on Guitar.

This is now the 6th studio album in a row together with Soren Andersen.
Also similar to the “Nomad” album, the same band was used: Morten Hellborn, Drums. Jesper Haugaard, Bass. Morten Buchholtz, Hammond organ & Piano. No other people were part in creating and recording this album.

‘Maybe Tomorrow’ will be released worldwide on limited edition blue colour LP (500 copies), black LP, CD and digital on February 24th 2017

JUNKYARD DRIVE - Sin & Tonic (2017)

Release: 17 February 2017

Welcome the new new Danish sleaze rock kings!

The debut album of Junkyard Drive reflects Rock N' Roll from the 80's, with a modern twist. It is produced and mixed by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars, Mike Tramp), and is recorded live in the legendary Medley Studios, Copenhagen.

During the session a well-known American artist interrupted the band:

‘’We were about to finish the album in Medley Studios, just a couple of weeks before heading to the States. We had just two days to record 4 tracks, everything was set up and we were ready to go. This is when Justin Bieber showed up in the studio with his whole entourage of bodyguards and men in suits and wanted to record a song! Bieber put us on a 6 hours hold, but when we got back in the studio we picked up the guitars and started shredding away, and we managed to stay inside our time limit.” – Birk, lead guitar, Junkyard Drive

The vision of the album is to bring honesty and dignity back to the music and get rid of things like X-Factor and DJ's. The lyrics are referring to a society where people are “experiencing” concerts through a smartphone instead of using their eyes, ears and brain.

Junkyard Drive has toured all over Denmark for the past two years, and have played in Latvia, Netherland and Germany as well. In October 2016, they toured USA and Mexico to perform songs from “Sin & Tonic” in Florida, Texas, Saltillo, Monterrey and Mexico City.

The band has supported Lizzy Devine (Veins of Jenna, The Cruel Intentions) and shared stage with legendary Primal Fear.
