Fuzz Lord - Fuzz Lord (2018)

Fuzzlord S-T.jpg

RELEASE 23 March 2018

Past praise for Fuzz Lord:

Fuzz Lord lives up to its name with a crushing yet melodic output of heavy stoner/doom. The guitars attack with progressive intros and interludes with an asphyxiating rhythm drenched in fuzzy groove. The vocals command like a whiskey driven pirate exploring the stage like a ship on shark infested waters.' -The Ripple Effect

Introducing Fuzz Lord, the heaviest band out of Chillicothe, Ohio!!!  After spending a serious amount of time drinking and listening to tunes for their radio show The Fuzzdome (COREOFDESTRUCTIONRADIO.COM), DJ Fuzz Lord and Lord Buzz decided to bring their ideas and conceptions of heavy to life with FUZZ LORD.

After recruiting Stoner Dan Riley on Bass, the bone-crushing three-piece power trio recorded their debut EP The Key in Silence which combined slow grooves with fuzzed-out heavy guitar riffs. Now in 2018, Fuzz Lord will unleash their tale of the rise of Hades with their self-titled LP released on CD and Cassette on March 23rd via Fuzzdoom Records.

Fuzz Lord is:

Steven 'Fuzz Lord' - Guitar
Lawrence 'Lord Buzz' - Drums/Vocals
Stoner Dan Riley - Bass/Vocals

All songs written by Fuzz Lord
All Lyrics written by Dan Riley

Engineered and Recorded by Dan Riley in Dan's Basement

Frontline - State Of Rock +2 (2018 re-issue)

FRONTLINE_State Of Rock_3000x3000px.jpg

RELEASE 27 April 2018

FRONTLINE from Nürnberg, Germany belong to the pioneers of the German hard rock scene. Founded in 1989 by Robert Böbel (guitars, keyboards; EVIDENCE ONE, PHANTOM V), Stephan Kämmerer (vocals), Thomas Riess (bass) und Stephan Bayerlein (drums), their debut album “The State Of Rock” finally hit the stores in 1994 – a true classic which until today still is regarded as the finest album of the band by many. This record also meant the breakthrough for the guys in Japan where they reached # 10 in the rock sales charts. Straightly after the release, FRONTLINE went on tour in Europe and had the honour to open for various great acts such as GOTTHARD, CRASH TEST DUMMIES, BONFIRE, TYKETTO and CASANOVA.
In 1995,  FRONTLINE pulled out the full acoustic album „Two Faced“. However, personal differences within the band followed and ended up in the departure of Stephan Bayerlein and Thomas Riess in 1996. They were replaced by Thomas „Hutch“ Bauer (Bass) und Rami Ali (Drums; EVIDENCE ONE, SHYLOCK). Still in the same year, FRONTLINE signed a record deal with a new label, recorded the single “Man In Motion” and the album “Heroes” which though officially only saw the light of day in Japan since their European label went out of business.
One year later, the band decided to start working on another new album which is well known under it’s working title “Heroes II” amongst the fans but never saw a release. Due to a complicated contractual situation many labels feared to contact FRONTLINE during the following years and the band went back to the underground again until Georg Siegl at AOR Heaven finally showed his interest in the band in the year 2000 and signed them for the first time. Just one month later, the album “Right Attitude” was released which can be regarded as a sort of compilation out of both “Heroes” albums …and “Right Attitude” became a huge success for the band again! The recordings for their 2002 output “Against The World” started the same year, and this album finally re-established FRONTLINE on the international hard rock market.
Throughout the months after the release of the best of compilation “Almost Unreleased” (2003) which also featured a couple of rare tracks for the fans, FRONTLINE again went into the studio and started to work on a new album called “The Seventh Sign” (2004). In the year 2006, the last studio album the German group called “Circles” was released.
On April 27th 2018, AOR Heaven now will re-issue the rare and out of print album “The State Of Rock” with two bonus tracks as a limited edition of 1000 copies. The album was  re-mastered by guitarist Robby Böbel.

Heartwind - Higher And Higher (2018)

HEARTWIND - Higher And Higher_3000x3000px.jpg

RELEASE 27 April 2018

With members from bands like Constancia, The Poodles, Token, Narnia and Essence of Sorrow, and with guest stars Nina Söderquist (Bjorn Skifs/Badrock, Champions of Rock a.o.), Janne Stark (Grand Design, Mountain of Power a.o.), and Tåve Wanning (The Voice, Adrenaline Rush, Peaches), new melodic hard rockers Heartwind may come across as one of those one off band projects, but nothing could be more far from the truth. Heartwind is the story of two old friends, with a common love for classical melodic hard rock and AOR, that after fifteen years of friendship started to write the album they always had wanted to listen to themselves. Over a meal in downtown Stockholm, guitar player and songwriter Goran Engvall (former with Hitworks) and progressive/melodic keyboard player and fellow songwriter Mikael Rosengren (Constancia, Token, Scudiero), laid down the vision for what was yet to come. 15 original songs and 12 months later, Mikael started to pull some strings from his many fellow musicians in the Swedish hard rock scene since 20 years back. The two songwriters were amazed with the positive response they got on their first demos, from hard rock industry people & fans. It became evident that they were going to be able to attract some great talent to the album and the band. Believing in the importance of fellowship and a strong people fit when starting a band, Mikael and Göran started to dig in closest ground: Drummer Peter TrumPeter Svensson (Constancia, Faith) and singer Germán Pascual (Narnia, Dj Mendez, Essence of Sorrow), happily joined the band, and two key pieces of the puzzle came into place. With Peter and Germán onboard, the band knew they had both a powerful backbone and a phenomenal front man in place!

Germán invited his old friends, and former band mates, guitar virtuoso Martin Hall (Germán Pascual band) and bass wizard Germain Leth (The Poodles, Watchmen) to join the band and magic was about to happen. When also the very well respected Fredrik Folkare (Unleashed, Firespawn, Eclipse, Scudiero a.o.), accepted to team up to produce and mix, the band knew they had something special going. Fredrik’s contribution also as a musician on the album (guitar & bass) cannot be underestimated.

With classical albums like Hysteria (Def Leppard), 1987 (Whitesnake) and Escape (Journey) serving as inspiration, the intention from the band has been to get every single track to stand on its own two feet! Timeless melodic hard rock with a modern but still genuine sound!
After publishing a short teaser on Youtube, just before X-mas 2017, Heartwind stood ready as a band and was offered record deals by no less than three (!) different labels. Heartwind washappy to sign with AOR Heaven in early January and making an old dream come true.

The album is mixed and produced by Fredrik Folkare, Chrome Studios, and mastered by Erik Mårtensson, Blowout Productions (Eclipse, Ammunition, WET a.o).
Heartwind is ready to rock the world!


RUSTY NAILS - Seasons Of Hatred (2018)


Rusty Nails new album Seasons Of Hatred is a modern heavy metal album. The main theme played around with is Hate and the whole album revolves around the concepts of hatred, anger and disappointment. The Love generation has failed and the next generation will be made up by those who have lost all hope and are tired of being fooled by politicians, employers and lovers. Now is time to get shit done, no matter how!

From the musical side, the album is dominated by fast-paced raging riffs which often subside into a less hurried, more controlled beats. Steaming upfront lyrics entwine with searing guitar solos, creating a weave that brings reminiscences of the 80’s but also adds a 21st century kick to the mixture. Seasons Of Hatred is prime time Rusty Nails at their best.

Track By Track Breakdown:
After the intro track Minutes Of Hatred, the albums opening song is Years Of Rage. Its lyrics are a clear tribute to George Orwell’s 1984: “Ministry of Truth is lying all the way”. This song inspired the album’s cover, which is also a representation of an Orwellian scene.

Day Of Punishment follows. Here the listener will meet Charon, the dark ferryman of Hades who carries damned souls to eternal retribution.

Dagon is another literature inspired song with lyrics spawning from the Lovecraft cosmogony and has a pretty sinister interlude.

Mind Control was originally the title-track of Rusty Nails’ 2011 EP. It represents the trait d’union with the band’s past. It also contains another hint of Orwell.

Out Of This World explores the inner thoughts of an “old boy”: he does not belong to “modern” society. His peers are lesser and empty. He should have been born in another time and another place.

The Outer Lords is an articulate song, in which lyrics and riffs overlap to take the listener on an epic interstellar ride.

The End Of All Days is the closing song of the album. It takes place during the time of the Spanish Conquistadors, taking a peek at the last breaths of a dying civilization.

Seasons Of Hatred | Released on March 20th, 2018 on Sliptrick Records

01. Minutes Of Hatred | 02. Years Of Rage | 03. Day Of Punishment | 04. Dagon | 05. Mind Control | 06. Out Of This World | 07. The Outer Lords | 08. The End Of All Days

CROSSON Invincible Album Cover.jpg

RELEASE 27 April 2018

CROSSON are back!!! Following the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 album “Spreading The Rock ‘N’ Roll Disease”, Australia based Futuristic Theatrical Rock Warriors CROSSON are back with their new album „Invincible“. Once again mixed by legendary producer Duane Baron (OZZY OSBOURNE, MÖTLEY CRÜE, ALICE COOPER), and mastered by U.S mastering legend Dave Donnelly (AEROSMITH, KISS, WHITESNAKE), „Invincible“ delivers CROSSON’s own brand of uplifting catchy rock anthems with loud guitars, big harmonies and a blistering production. „Invincible“ is 10 notches up from where Crosson left off with „Spreading The Rock N Roll Disease“. The songwriting and production has leaped in great bounds and the album will have you shamelessly singing along to the catchy choruses while leaving your ears bleeding”., says bandleader and mastermind Jason Crosson. If „Spreading the Rock ‘N’ Roll Disease“ sparked people’s attention, „Invincible“ will have them jumping aboard the CROSSON rebel train. The opening track „Rock Warriors“ is an anthemic tribute to all the metal / rock bands and artists who laid the foundations for the genre and kept it alive and kicking for decades, whilst the first single „Never Give Up“ is an inspirational and catchy as Chlamydia track with a strong 80’s Bon Jovi vibe that would even make Desmond Child tap his feet. The album’s only ballad “Unconditional Love” is a duet with renowned Finnish singer / actress JESSICA WOLFF, with the music video shot in Australia and Croatia by award winning feature film and music video director Steve Ravic (DORO, MANOWAR, RHAPSODY). Nothing can prepare you for the visual onslaught CROSSON delivers in its live show. Numerous costume changes, blended with high-energy choreography, smoke, sirens, and catchy rock anthems makes the CROSSON live show a “seen-to-be-believed” entertaining experience. “If you like the of idea of KISS and Motley Crue crossed with The Darkness and Steel Panther, you’re gonna love CROSSON” - Xavier Russell (Classic Rock Magazine AOR).
