HARDCORE SUPERSTAR - Hear the new Single "One More Minute"!

... and again it's Scandinavia-time :)

The new single from Hardcore Superstar is called "One More Minute". It was mixed by Randy Staub (who has already worked with Metallica, Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe).

This song is a first taste of the new album "C'mon Take On Me" (release date: 01.03.2013). Hardcore Superstar continue where they left off with "Split Your Lip": "One More Minute" is a sleazy song with a very catchy note. Hear the full song below!

SEBASTIAN BACH talks about Skid Row Reunion

Will it ever happen? Will the legendary Skid Row reunite someday? This question is asked by so many rock & metal fans out there. Some month ago former Skid Row shouter Sebastian Bach posted a long statement about a Skid Row reunion on his facebook page. He was saying that he would do it for the fans and told the other band members to think about it. That was last summer.

CD-Review: BLOODBOUND - "In The Name Of Metal"

Hey Metalheads,
what would you expect if you look at this cover artwork? Thrash Metal? Deathcore?? Punk??? Calm down - fortunately it's nothing like that. What we got here is Heavy Metal/Power Metal with some True Metal influences. Don't expect lyrics with draft ... it's all about evil, blood and in fact ... metal. Put all the clichés together and add some Hammerfall, Edguy and Manowar. Then you can imagine which type of music Bloodbound play. But that does not mean it's bad.

SHYLOCK - new album and first Sound-Clips!

If you're looking for music in the vein of Gotthard, Bonfire and Shakra, I can recommand you this German band: SHYLOCK. They are no newcomers - these guys released 5 albums so far.
The new one is called "Walking Tall" (Release date: 18.01.2013) and you can hear the first sound-clips from three new songs below:

I Can't Wait Now

Rock DNA

Walking Tall

After the first listen I think Shylock will deliver what they can do best: catchy European Hard Rock!
Have a look!

RICHIE SAMBORA - Live Review Berlin, 13.10.2012

Hey friends,

after the good resonance I had yesterday with the Gotthard Live Review I decided to do another one. This time the gig is almost 5 weeks ago but better later than never ;)

I think most of you know this guy: Richie Sambora - guitarist of one of the biggest Rock Bands in the world (for those who don't know: Bon Jovi^^) released after 14 long years his third solo record, called "Aftermath Of The Lowdown". Just this fact was a reason to celebrate. I never thought he would do a solo tour again. But he did - Richie played a sold-out-tour in Europe ... and I was there - in Berlin.
