The Revolution Saints!
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!

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

Four bands have been picked to make it special
and there will also be a very special DJ who
will entertain revellers on this fine ship.
Food and drinks will be available on board

surroundings throughout the 5 hour cruise.
Sail the seas where the Vikings left for battle,
where medieval kings conquered new lands and
where the 2nd World War came to Norway. Dramatic
history and beautiful landscapes will now be the
setting for METAL!
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
