Meet The Revolution Saints!

Deen Castronovo, Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich. Put these three titans together in a band and you have REVOLUTION SAINTS.



Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English and more, Deen's excellent vocal talents are in the spotlight on this release. On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases. On guitar, Doug Aldrich was excited to lend his fiery blues guitar attack to such a unique and melodic band. Doug, who just left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010s critically acclaimed "Forevermore"release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected guitarists.

You can tell by the name - and the names involved - that REVOLUTION SAINTS is not going to be your average rock 'n roll band. The record brings back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be: inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. Simply put, it is completely badass.

The project is the vision of Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino. With production overseen by in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio (who also contributed to the songwriting and played keyboards on the album), the recording process took place in Portland, OR during the summer of 2014.

REVOLUTION SAINTS' music is played with a heart and soul and that highlights the passion and the enthusiasm of three of the best rock and all-around musicians in the game today.

Truly, this will be a release that you cannot miss!

Profane And The Sacred Release New Single

'From The Top' is the new single by London stoner rock 4 piece Profane And The Sacred.

Featuring gigantic doom laden riffs that unashamedly smother you in nostalgia but waste no time in lacing prog tinged instrumental breakdowns into a 5 minute musical journey. Showcasing time progressions that shift gears but never let up on the momentum and allowing the rapsy, gritty vocals of singer Luke Alleeson to cover the organic soundtrack with a warning to all in the song's lyrical content.

Profane And The Sacred will unveil a music video for 'From The Top' following the release of the single on 16th November 2014 via the usual digital stores.



The band release their debut album via Cargo Records in February 2015. More news to follow...

The Gloria Story - Takin' Up Arms

Don’t break the hearts of rockstars with a global distribution-deal. You might end up on their next song”


To record their new single “Takin’ up Arms” The Gloria Story’s returned to Kingside Studios, Stockholm; the birthplace of their platinum selling hit “OH NO (2010)”. Forged by heartache and fueled by hot, red passion “Takin’ up Arms” brings back the arena-sounds of the late 70’s. 

 

This is true to the core, Paul Stanleyesque, vintage, analogue hard rock. The single takes off on a crispier, more glamrock-oriented path, compared to the garage sounding trail the band’s been traveling in recent years. In Nov/Dec The Gloria Story joins Bullet on tour for 10 shows of solid, old school entertainment all over Scandinavia. The guns are loaded, sights are set - this fall The Gloria Story is “Takin’ up Arms”!

STRATOVARIUS TO RELEASE “ELEMENTS PT. 1“ & “ELEMENTS PT. 2” REISSUE ON DECEMBER 5TH 2014

With the albums “Elements Pt. 1” and “Elements Pt. 2” Stratovarius succeeded with what only very few bands manage to achieve: they opened doors, tore down (genre) walls and created two milestones in progressive symphonic metal.


Both albums showed the Finnish band on top of their game and perfected the foundation of what was to become the instantly recognizable Stratovarius trademark sound.


11 years after their original release (and Top 5 chart positions in their home country Finland), both albums will be combined for a high quality reissue including exclusive bonus material. “Elements Pt. 1 & 2” will be released on December 5th 2014 on earMUSIC.

Jens Johansson explains: “The idea for this 2014 reissue revolves much around the surround (5.1) mixes of the album. I had heard a few tracks from these at some point and was completely blown away. But they were never released. So finally, these quite wonderful audiophile 5.1 surround mixes are available.”

“Elements Pt. 1 & 2” is going to be released as 3CD+DVD digi-pak, limited to 10.000 copies worldwide, as well as limited to 3.000 copies worldwide box set.


The releases feature both original albums, a bonus CD including unreleased and rare songs like B-Sides or live versions from the 2003 Elements tour and a DVD. For the first time in the band’s history, the DVD features the 5.1 mix of both albums, rare bonus songs as well as a photo gallery.

The box set includes the high quality 3CD+DVD digi-pak, a cassette including previously unreleased demo songs which are only available on this format and will not be made available anywhere else, an “Elements” tour T-shirt as well as a reproduction of the original tour program. As a special bonus, the band has conquered their private archives for rare and never before seen picture material – so get ready for some fun shoots from behind the scenes of the album recording sessions as well as juicy material from the tour.


With its previously unreleased and rare songs, the 5.1 mix on DVD, the brand new artwork and freshly written liner notes by Jens Johansson “Elements Pt. 1 & 2” is definitely a must-have.


Portraying the elements wind, fire, water and earth, the albums themselves feature a prominent, effortlessly flowing progressive sound. The music made clear that the band – Timo Kotipelto (vocals), Timo Tolkki (guitar), Jens Johansson (keyboard), Jörg Michael (drums), Jari Kainulainen (bass) – were not just another metal band, on the contrary, they were (and still are) a band that doesn’t shy away to take one step further and experiment with different genres. Both Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 have proven to be one of the band’s best works up until that point of their career. Especially Jens Johansson’s exceptional keyboard performance has to be pointed out: mind-blowing keyboard solos, giving the album a distinctive sound frame.

 “’Elements’ still is one of the greatest sounding power metal records ever. And I imagine, one of the heaviest melodic rock albums that will ever be made with an orchestra”, reflects Jens Johansson about the sound of the album.

After the cruise, the ship will dock back in Bergen city where everyone will head over to Bergen's beloved venue, Garage Bergen, to continue the party with 6 more bands blasting into the night. The festival have confirmed Bergen's best party band headlining and a hard hitting brutal lineup to make you 'rock out with your cock out' when it all comes to an end.
