Frontiers Music Srl is is pleased to announce the release of TRICK OR TREAT’s new album 

Frontiers Music Srl is is pleased to announce the release of TRICK OR TREAT’s new album “Rabbits' Hill Pt. 2” on July 8th!

Originally formed in 2002 as a Helloween tribute band, TRICK OR TREAT soon became a popular live attraction in their home country of Italy. After recording their first demo of original material, they were signed by an independent Italian label, Valery Records. In 2006 they released their first full-length album, entitled “Evil Needs Candy Too”, to critical acclaim. The band then spent the following two years on the road playing over 100 gigs in Europe and the USA. The band released their second album, “Tin Soldiers” in 2009.

Three years later, 2012 proved to be an important year for TRICK OR TREAT, firstly because singer Alessandro Conti was chosen by Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody to be the lead singer on the album “Ascending to Infinity” and secondly, the band released their concept album “Rabbits’ Hill Pt.1,” based on Richard Adams’ novel “Watership Down”.

Four years on, the second chapter, “Rabbits' Hill Pt. 2” is now finally finished and comes with the news of the band signing a worldwide, multi-album deal with Frontiers Music Srl. The recording sessions for the new album have been the longest the band has ever taken part in and the work with producer Simone Mularoni (DGM) captured all the intricate details of their take on power metal. For this album, the band added huge orchestrations and epic choirs mixed to their usual signature power metal sound, in order to sonically reflect all the epic adventures told through the lyrics. The musical vibes range from acoustic and melodic parts to darker, heavy metal anthems.

Once again on this new album, TRICK OR TREAT had the honor to work with great international guest musicians and friends like Tony Kakko from Sonata Arctica, Sara Squadrani from Ancient Bards and, in the role of the evil general Woundwort, Tim Ripper Owens (ex-Judas Priest, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen).

Frontman Alessandro Conti on the new album and working with Frontiers Music Srl: “After a long time spent on the production of the new album, we can finally confirm the official release date and the last guest singer. In addition to our friends Sara Squadrani and Tim Ripper Owens, we're so happy and proud to have our friend Tony Kakko on “Rabbits' Hill Pt. 2” is an incredible honor for us! These guests did an amazing job, helping us to capture the perfect atmosphere of the concept taken from Richard Adam's novel "Watership Down.”

We are so happy about the final result of our new album and we are excited about the new partnership with Frontiers, one of the most important rock labels in the world! This is really a great moment for TRICK OR TREAT! So don't miss the new album!!”

TRICK OR TREAT are now finally ready to unleash their sonic attack on metal maniacs around the globe!

Frontiers 20th Anniversary Live CD Now Available

EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED EDITION Frontiers 20th Anniversary LIVE CD AVAILABLE NOW from Frontiers webstore:

Recorded live last February 27th in Napoli, Italy at the party organized to celebrate the XXth Anniversary of Frontiers Records, the label wanted to make things really special. So Frontiers President, Serafino Perugino, asked Alessandro Del Vecchio if he wanted to be part of the celebrations and if he wanted to perform a few songs live, as an unforgettable moment for all business partners, friends and journalists attending the event. Further discussions brought Pride of Lions singer Toby Hitchcock into the picture. He agreed to come over from Indiana and have a stab at some true AOR and Melodic Rock classics 'in his own way'.

So the set includes a few tracks which showcase some tunes originally written by Alessandro and then performed by other artists, while the bulk of the show sees Toby Hitchcock taking care of lead vocals on classics that are Perugino's very own favorite songs, originally recorded by Survivor, Journey, Bad english, Foreigner and of course Pride of Lions too.

Alessandro Del Vecchio says: "When Serafino asked me to perform at the XX Anniversary party, I just couldn't say no. Frontiers to me is not just a label I work with. I'm proud to be part of the working team behind these great albums. I called in some of my best buddies in music and after a rehearsal with Toby, we flew down to Napoli, hoping we could burn the house down. Well, we did and with a lot of fun too! Serafino asked us to perform his "dream setlist", as we called it, and we took the challenge to go out and play those songs with barely 2 hours of getting together, to give it a flavour of a jam among friends more than a regular gig. The atmosphere was awesome and the smiles on people's faces were just worth the challenge! To me the most magical moment has been singing the song I wrote for Serafino's dad - "In The Name Of The Father (Fernando's Song)" - in front of his whole family. I almost cried when I opened my eyes at the end of my last note. That's what music is about and I hope you can enjoy these few songs and get the magic we experienced and lived that night. Long live Frontiers!"

Toby Hitchcock adds 'What an incredible honor to be a part of this celebration! When Serafino asked if I could come to Italy to sing for this event, I didn't hesitate one minute! It was an amazing experience for me to play for the Frontiers crew, but also share the stage with Alessandro and the guys. What an incredible group of musicians! I hope to rock the stage with them again someday! Thanks for having me Frontiers! Here's to 20 more years!!"'

The performing band was rounded up by experienced musicians such as Nik Mazzucconi (Edge of Forever) on bass, Marco Di Salvia on drums and Francesco Marras on guitars. It was truly an unforgettable and unique night!

SIXX:A.M. recently released the first single to their upcoming global release, Vol.1 Prayers For The Damned, “Rise”, which is currently dominating the American Rock Charts at #7 and rising. “Rise” is ultimately a song that implores the general public to open their eyes, go against the grain, and stand up. “Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change, a sentiment completely encompassed by the musicianship, lyrics, and passion of ‘Rise’”, Nikki Sixx explores. James Michael goes on to explain, “‘Rise’ is about how we find ourselves at a global tipping point and how it is our duty as citizens of this world to come together, communicate with one another and rise up to demand more of ourselves and our leaders.” While not a political band, SIXX:A.M. know it is time for us to all unite for the changes we want to see happen in the world and are ready and willing to spearhead the movement. As “Rise” urges:

“Don’t let the status quo define you.”


During a recent interview live on CNN, Nikki Sixx urged citizens to look at their surroundings, see injustices, and stand up to them, including the current volatile presidential election, the increasingly horrifying heroin epidemic, and more. We all have our “#ReasonToRise” and the men of SIXX:A.M. are asking fans to share what makes them raise their fists and act.

Taking their heavy-hitting message on the road, fans can find the band kicking off their global festival circuit April 30th. SIXX:A.M. will also be performing fan favorites, new and old, on the Vol.1 Prayers For The Damned tour cycle which will include seven major rock festivals in Europe, a headlining tour beginning May 3rd in Nashville, and many more dates soon to be announced. For more information on tour dates and the band, please visit

The mighty SUPERSUCKERS are releasing a brand new video today.  "Holdin' The Bag" is the title track of the new album that is available everywhere in Europe now via SPV / Steamhammer.

As you might already know - "Holdin' The Bag" is a Country album but... played in the Supersuckers' very own way. Supercool and also hard rockin'.

I feel like, after 25 years, we’re finally getting the hang of this. We’re still that hungry little band that pictures itself being much bigger than it really is.”

Dirkschneider - Most Successful Tour In Solo Career

Shortly before playing at the sold out "Halle 02" in Heidelberg/Germany, rock legend Udo Dirkschneider was presented a "Sold Out"-Award by his Manager/Booker Frank Süpfle of ITM Agency for the extremely successful DIRKSCHNEIDER tour, where 31 out of 48 Europe shows were sold out!

"It’s unbelievable, I never expected this tour to be so overly successful“, Udo comments, "It’s beautiful to see how many people walk with me on my personal way of saying goodbye to the ACCEPT chapter.“

The singer with the charismatic voice had his musical breakthrough with ACCEPT in the early 80s.

"It’s still so much fun to sing these songs live, they are a part of my biography, but nevertheless it’s about time to turn that page. There was so much talking and speculations about me and ACCEPT, so this is kind of a musical statement from my end – which seems to be very interesting for the fans who came to these shows“.

Due to extremely high requests from fans and promoters DIRKSCHNEIDER will continue touring until the end of 2016. After the triumph all over Europe in spring 2016, DIRKSCHNEIDER will tour in Israel and Japan, doing a lot of summer festivals afterwards and then touring the US, Russia and Europe in fall and winter 2016.

First dates are already confirmed (presale starts soon):

Nov 01, 2016 N-Oslo - Vulcan Arena

Swedish Heavy Metallers TRIAL signs with Metal Blade Records!

Metal Blade Records is proud to welcome Swedish Heavy Metallers TRIAL on board!

TRIAL formed in 2007 but it was not until 2013 when TRIAL wrote and recorded the 'Malicious Arts' EP (2013), which became yet a stepping stone from where the band was to where they wanted to be. "That EP, in many ways, became our first road to liberate us from ourselves," TRIALrecalls. "Rising from the ashes of our former selves, we took things further beyond, which ultimately resulted in the album 'Vessel'."

After earning acclaimed reviews for 'Vessel' (2015), TRIAL's popularity continued to grow, and it wasn't long before Metal Blade Records signed the band. With plans to re-invent themselves once again, TRIAL's upcoming debut for the label promises to be another step forward in their career.

Comments TRIAL: "We're honoured to be able to work with such a prestigious and historically important label as Metal Blade. Many of their previous releases are milestones in the genre and of great inspiration to us. To join their roster of artists and be a part of that legacy is one step further towards the perfection of our craft!"

DEADLOCK – Announce New Female Singer & Unveil First Audio Sample!

After Sabine Scherer, female power frontwoman of DEADLOCK since 2005, took a break during her maternity leave, she has now decided to leave DEADLOCK completely to have more time for her family and her two children. 

But no need to worry! With Margie Gerlitz DEADLOCK have found the perfect replacement  and now Margie has joined as a permanent singer of the band. Her work as a vocal coach  ties in perfectly with the quality and inventiveness of Sabine, without sounding like a simple copy. DEADLOCK have risen from the ashes, scarred, but with their heads held high, fully fueled with new strength and their well-known passion. 

Songwriter Sebastian Reichl on the line-up change:
“I am extremely thankful for everything Sabine did for this Band and I am happy that she issued the blessing to Margie. She is a fantastic singer, performer and she fits perfectly with the team. Please welcome the great Margie Gerlitz as the new female singer of Deadlock.

Margie Gerlitz states:
“I'm very happy to have the chance to join Deadlock on the female vocals. Sabine and the boys formed a great band over the past years and I'm happy to be a part of it from now on. I'm looking forward to the future!”

Sabine has released a special farewell video for her fans and supporters. Keep your eyes & ears open, as this video includes a first audio sample with Margie as well! Check it out HERE.

WHITECHAPEL reveals details for new album, 'Mark of the Blade'

On June 24th, WHITECHAPEL will release their sixth full-length, 'Mark of the Blade', worldwide via Metal Blade Records. Pushing their sound forward with each successive release, 'Mark of the Blade' remains true to the band's roots while venturing into previously unexplored territory, both sonically and lyrically. To view the lyric video for the first single - the album's title track - and to pre-order the record in various formats, please visit:

Reunited with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse), WHITECHAPELhas redefined who they are and what they are capable of with their new album, 'Mark of the Blade'. Kicking off with "The Void" - which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band's three-guitar attack - the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on "Decennium" bring the record to a close, it's impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. "It's the most dynamic record we've done, in the sense that one song can be very aggressive while the next one will be softer and sentimental," guitarist Alex Wade asserts. "At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us."

See below for the official track-listing!

After their historic show at Leicester’s Victoria Park in 2014, Kasabian, one of the UK’s best and biggest bands, are set to return to their hometown for a massive headline show at the King Power Stadium on Saturday May 28th. 

Currently holed up in a studio recording their sixth LP, vocalist Tom Meighan, guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno, bassist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews will play the home of their beloved Leicester City FC in May. It will be the first time the band have played in the UK since their incendiary headline set at V Festival in 2015. 

Serge Pizzorno says: ‘This has been an unbelievable year for the city and it seemed like the perfect thing to do this summer. We cannot wait to throw the city the greatest party they have ever seen.”

Kasabian play:

Kasabian have gone from dance-rock outsiders to one of the biggest rock bands in the world, selling out shows around the globe. Aside from cementing their reputation as one of the planet’s best live acts, they have established themselves through five albums –four of which went straight in the UK charts at number 1 - as one of the best and most innovative British rock bands ever with a slew of memorable singles including ‘Processed Beats’, ‘Club Foot’, ‘L.S.F’, ‘Empire’, ‘Shoot The Runner’, ‘Fire’, 'Underdog', 'Days Are Forgotten' and 'eez-eh'.



KING DIAMOND will host his first full UK indoor headline performance in over 15 years at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town on 21st June, where they will, as part of their live set, perform the iconic ‘Abigail’ album in its entirety for the first and possibly last time ever in the UK, as well as numerous other hits. This will be the most ambitious theatrical horror production by KING DIAMOND to date. Both sonically and visually this will take the band to a whole new level.

The Bulletboys Sign To Frontiers Srl

In case you missed the announcement last week, we are pleased to announce the signing of BULLETBOYS to the label for a new album to be released in the last part of 2016!


BULLETBOYS formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles hard rock movement. With record companies constantly searching for new talent, they possessed a pedigree that most bands would kill for. Unlike the other rockers of the day, the BulletBoys were more hard rock and blues fusion than pure hair metal. Using their credentials, they were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world while frontman Marq Torien emerged as one of the most underrated vocalists of the era. Thanks to comparisons to the likes of Aerosmith and especially Van Halen, talent scouts came running and the band quickly received their first major label contract.

With a debut album, produced by none other than Ted Templeman (Van Halen, Montrose) which sported the the smash hit single "Smooth Up in Ya," BulletBoys officially established themselves as the leaders of the then LA rock scene. Constant tours and the support of MTV soon brought the album to platinum status. Two more albums soon followed, “Freakshow” and “Za-Za”.

The band continued to tour and release albums surviving throughout the grunge era and outlasting the nu-metal craze. With 8 more studio albums under their belt, BulletBoys are ready to start again with a new label, feeling stronger than ever!

“We could not be more ecstatic about signing with Frontiers” says Marq Torien. “Thank you to the Executives at the label and Artists Worldwide for believing in our music. We have worked diligently over the past years musically, touring, writing and performing. We are excited to embark on this new venture with Frontiers as our support and really looking forward to releasing our new music with your amazing label. Our new joint is going into a completely new direction musically that has not been heard from us ever. We promise not to disappoint!”
