Stormburst - Highway To Heaven

STORMBURST from Dalarna, Sweden, were formed in July 2014 and the original intention was just to make high quality music, have fun and do what you believe in without any musical compromises. No more covers, just self-composed songs. Bass player Kent Jansson (Six Feet Under, Keen Hue, Steam) and guitarist Thomas Hansson (Steam, Coastline) started with singer Lars-Åke "Plåtis" Nilsson (Keen Hue). To get the special sound they were looking for, keyboardist Peter Östling (Six Feet Under) was sent a demo and he really believed in the idea and joined immediately. In late 2019 original drummer Peter Ytterberg quit and was soon replaced by Pelle Hindén (Eternal Of Sweden).  

Stormburst is all about uncompromisingly doing what you believe in even if you have a headwind. When the wind blows hard in life sometimes, the love of music is in all conditions strong and sustainable. Stormburst has the ability to reflect it with music and lyrics and the style can best be described as a combination of traditional Melodic Hard Rock & AOR.

In late May 2017 the debut album "Raised On Rock" was released by AOR Heaven and now it's time for the follow up "Highway To Heaven", which was recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Bakery, Äppelbo by Jonas Tornemalm and at Lars-Åke's home studio in Vansbro early 2020.

It’s an interesting time for a new band to break, but after the warm reception of their debut single “Baby Jean” in May, London rock act Heavyman have no qualms about stepping into the light – even if it is the light of your LCD screen.

This August, the newly minted alt-rock outfit offers their second commercial release. Incendiary and bold, “Pigs” asks the divisive question, “who do you follow?” and speaks to the age old tug-of-war between the political powers that be, and the everyman with boots on the ground who strives to have their voice heard.

Toeing the line between woeful ode and protest song, “‘Pigs’ was written in 2014 when Russia invaded Crimea… I was reading Animal Farm at the time,” says frontman Charlie Yang, “I wanted to explore this almost careless sense of loyalty to whomever may be calling the shots… to write a song as a conversation between those who follow and those who lead.”

Heavyman are also celebrating the release with a donation to the ACLU on the centennial anniversary of their ongoing fight against human rights violations. 

Heavyman are an alt-rock four piece, comprised of Charlie Yang (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Nick Burns (Lead Guitar), Igor Fonseca (Bass Guitar), and Tom Papaloizou (Drums). One of the most promising new acts out of London, they have been dubbed “iconic,” “refreshing,” and “the next face of alternative rock.”

Inspired by classic rock titans Elton John and Queen, the careful lyricism of Jeff Buckley and gritty stylings of Queens of the Stone Age and Audioslave, Heavyman’s sound is defined by soaring vocals that range from trills to tremors, and intoxicating instrumentation to grip the ear and heart of any rock fan. As they build towards the release of their first EP, Heavyman are stepping out with a sound that is unabashedly dramatic, sentimental and electrifying.

THE FOOLKS - The Most Beautiful Queen

The first song on The Foolks upcoming self titled album, 'The Most Beautiful Queen', released on August 10th.

Their name is a combination of the words "folks" (people) and "fool" (crazy), reflecting the current situation of our world with the pandemic of Covid-19.

The Foolks new single 'The Most Beautiful Queen' is talking about second chances, to try something again after failing.

Influenced by The Rolling Stones rock 'n' roll sound, the track has a powerful guitar riff, a beautiful melodic bass adding depth and volume, combined with a jazz filled drum beat. The very sensual vocals give the message that the song wants to pass.

"Everybody can achieve their dreams, even if you are down in life. You need to pick your self up, brush yourself down and strive towards the path of a better life"

The Foolks were formed by French Producer and Songwriter Emmanuel Dron. The members of the band are: lead vocalist Jamie Wiltshire (Cambridge,UK) , guitarist Emmanuel Dron (Singapore), drummer Andrew Picha (Nashville, US) and bassist Charles Berthoud (Massachusetts, US).

The Most Beautiful Queen is a song you must listen.
