Watch the new music video 'Prison Of Light': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyj3cq0JrAs


KLOGR release their third studio album 'Keystone' on 6th October via Zeta Factory (distributed in the UK/Europe by PHD) and today have revealed the album artwork and tracklisting.


The artwork is a piece of a painting by renowned Italian artist, Andrea Saltini.


Klogr frontman Rusty comments: “A while ago, I saw a paint of Andrea Saltini and I was really impressed by it. When 'Keystone' came to life with its music, I immediately remembered that painting and thought it would be perfect for our cover. Luckily it was still available and we were able to use it for our design.”


Pre-orders for the new album 'Keystone' are now available in two exclusive bundles with limited edition t-shirt: http://www.klogr.net/shop/


'Keystone' tracklist:


1. Sleeping Through The Seasons

2. Prison Of Light

3. Technocracy

4. The Echoes Of Sin

5. Pride Before The Fall

6. Something's In The Air

7. Drag You Back

8. Sirens' Song

9. Dark Tides

10. Silent Witness

11. Enigmatic Smile

12. The Wall Of Illusion



“'Keystone' is a central point of a system, a doctrine, a school of thought, a series of events”, says Klogr mastermind Rusty, “the new album is the perfect representation of our work, what we believe in and what we want to express with our music.”


Klogr's new album was recorded at Zeta Factory Studio and mixed at Mainstation Studio in Toronto, Canada, by Grammy award winner David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Dream Theater, Stone Sour, Rush).


“We decided to work with a producer like David to reach a turning point in our discography”, comments Rusty, “David brought something that was missing in the band, an outside view focused on music and not on what is “trendy”. His incredible musical sensitivity and his professional experience led us to challenge ourselves and to experiment new solutions that gave the album a unique power and personality.


We are really proud and satisfied of the result, this is our best work ever. We hope you will enjoy it!”


Klogr is:


Gabriele “Rusty” Rustichelli: Lead vocals/guitar

Pietro Quilichini “PQ”: Guitar/backing vocals

Maicol Morgotti: Drums

Roberto Galli: Bass guitar

It’s said that some of the greatest bands of our time have been forged on the road, Devilfire is no exception…


Following 10 days of gigging to 2000 capacity sold out venues as special guests to former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen, DEVILFIRE have forged a fiery path into the European Rock N' Roll road. Returning to the UK to a sold out festival crowd at Hard Rock Hell AOR 2017 was the icing on the cake, and the Birmingham based melodic hard rock outfit are ready to conquer the world with their debut album 'DARK MANOEUVRES' this October.


Mixed by acclaimed producer Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine) and co-produced by Romesh and Devilfire frontman Alex Cooper (Shy, Quireboys Spike, Ginger) at Long Wave Studios in Cardiff, 'Dark Manoeuvres' is a mammoth 13-track album. Calling on varied influences with a darker melodic sound, this hook laden, riff filled collection of music has been carefully crafted with passion. 'Dark Manouevres' is set to push rock's boundaries with its honest British roots.


“I try to put my heart on the page, be as open and honest as its all I know", says Cooper, "Dark Manoeuvres is a therapy for me. As an artist all you can do is try to put the listener into your shoes. I feel that is the greatest power of music. It's always what I’ve loved when listening to any music that I emotionally connect with. With this debut album we've taken our time to curate the best possible music we can at this stage, and I honestly believe we've accomplished what we set out to do."


'Dark Manoeuvres' is such an accomplished debut album, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was Devilfire's third, not first full length studio release. From the opening foot stomper 'Ready For War', to the true immediacy of singles 'Waiting For A Rockstar', 'She's Always On The Run', to the swing of 'Tear Me Apart', and passion of closing track 'Somehow', this new album wears its hooks loud n' proud, whilst easily stamping Devilfire's own take on modern rock music.


“The songs on this record are just so good", agrees Romesh Dodangoda, "Devilfire are definitely a band for the future."


Watch 'Waiting For A Rockstar' (official music video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5zrZYOLrpg

Devilfire live:


26th Aug - BIRMINGHAM - o2 Academy (Headline Show)

2nd Sept - SHEFFIELD - o2 Academy HRH Sleaze


More dates to be announced.


Devilfire's debut album 'Dark Manoeuvres' is out 6th October.


Tracklist:


1. Ready For War?

2. She's Like Fire

3. (In And Out Of Love) All Of The Time

4. Waiting For A Rockstar

5. Lay It On The Line

6. Kill Your Love

7. Tear Me Apart

8. God Give Me Vengance

9. Devil In Your Eyes

10. (You Gotta) Revolution

11. She's Always On The Run

12. A Thousand Times

13. Somehow

"Metalcore's freshest new talent" Kerrang!


"Don't blame us when you headbang your way into oblivion!" Rock Sound


As seen on Scuzz TV, and taken from their self-titled debut ep, Death Blooms dispense with the pleasantries and show off music muscle with their new music video 'Sick'.


Hailing from Liverpool and Manchester, the metalcore four-piece burst onto the scene earlier this year with their stunning first music release 'I'm Dead' and a number of live shows which has seen them sharing the stages with the likes of Dope, Skindred, Raging Speedhorn, (Hed)P.E., Anti-Clone and more.


Supporters of mental health charity MIND, Death Blooms fresh take on metal with meaning has seen their fan base grow rapidly. Vocalist Paul Barrow humbly recognises this, "We talk to people who've taken the time to listen to our music, and because the lyrics encapsulate what many of us feel on a daily basis, a lot of folk make the connection quickly about mental health and the need for well-being in this fast and furious digital age."


Barrow explains the meaning behind the song and new video, "'Sick' is about the constant struggle inside of your own thoughts and the journey you undertake along the way. Sometimes, you feel like you have complete control of the situation and other times you have absolutely none. 'Sick' is about wanting to break free from your own shackles, but acknowledging and accepting that this is who you are. It's good to talk about how you feel and to be honest, most importantly, with yourself. I feel like the song ended up being one massive therapy session for me."


Death Blooms self-titled debut ep is available now:


. iTunes: http://apple.co/2sFn7Wa


. Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2sK26Hb


Death Blooms live:


17th Jul - MILTON KEYNES, Craufurd Arms (w/ Trapt, The Fallen State)

27th Aug - LIVERPOOL, Studio 2 (w/ Loathe, Harbinger)


More dates to be announced.

Bloodstock Festival announces GraViL + watch 'Detonate' new music video


"Pure f**kin’ metal delivered with maximum vitriol. This band rules harder than Josef Stalin." - Dom Lawson

The latest announcement by Bloodstock Open Air this past Tuesday sees the London melodeath group GRAVIL confirmed for the prestigious Sophie Lancaster stage on Sunday 14th August. This new addition to the bill once again demonstrates Bloodstock's commitment to championing new bands in the metal community.


"We are honoured to be a part of Bloodstock Open Air 2017" says GraViL vocalist Grant Stacey. "Each year this spiritual home of heavy metal somehow betters the year before. We have each spent a lot of time on the hallowed ground of Catton Park, witnessing stunning new bands, the earth shattering veterans of the main stage and embracing the metal music community that we have come to call our family. Now we are privileged to grace the SOPHIE stage, whose very name represents the strength and pride of our brotherhood. See you there!"


2017 has seen a resurgence for GraViL. Their sophomore album 'No More Forgiveness' was released in May and has being going down a storm with media and the band's fanbase. With various premieres by the likes of Metal Hammer, Scuzz TV, Terrorizer and more, GraViL have now unleashed the music video for elite track 'Detonate'.


This new video clip shows the group in a high-octane performance which also features three versions of the mysterious woman, 'Obliti'... the present broken self, a lost dream of grandeur and the self-loathing dark entity which destroyed it.


"'Detonate' is a personal song drawn from a negative situation", explains Stacey, "The video captures the lyrics perfectly... it tackles loss, taking charge and using the anger, rage and sadness to triumph over the overwhelming paint that the loss entails... hence detonating."


Whilst the song and video reflect important issues in our society, it didn't stop the band from taking time out to have fun on set and inflict 'crabcore' on non-believers.


"On the way to the video shoot we discussed how low our guitarists get to the floor during live shows. Sparx (bass) mentioned it was called crabcore and a confused Charlie (Webster, guitar) refused point blank to believe there was such a thing. Like a red rag to a bull this spurred us onto mischief, leading to the band shouting "crab it" during the performance sections and band members having to get as low as physically possible to the floor without taking the soles of their feet off the ground."


GraViL's new album 'No More Forgiveness' is out now.


GraVIL live:


23rd June - COVENTRY, Arches (w/ Metaprism)

8th July - BURNLEY, Sanctuary Rock Bar (w/ Metaprism, Today, They Are Older)

14th Aug - BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR (Sophie Lancaster Stage)


More dates to be announced.

Internationally-renowned vocalist and songwriter LEE AARON is returning to the UK this summer to bring her 'Fire and Gasoline' tour to the rock-hungry masses.


Fans can expect July's UK shows to be jam packed with well-loved classic and contemporary anthems like 'Barely Holdin’ On', 'Whatcha Do To My Body', 'Hands On', 'Metal Queen', 'Tom Boy' and 'Fire And Gasoline', as well Aaron’s soaring version of the Deep Purple classic 'Mistreated', taken from newly recorded 'Heavy Blues' album, slated for release later this year.


“I am so excited about the direction of the new album. I grew up influenced by the blues, and the great blues-rock singers – Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, David Coverdale, and Ian Gillan…I wanted to get back to the basics: great songs with great vocal performances.”


Lee's latest album 'Fire And Gasoline' was released in 2016 and met with high praise from fans and press alike, with the single 'Tom Boy' featured in Classic Rock Magazine's 'Tracks Of The Week' ("She's definitely back back BACK!"): http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-03-04/classic-rock-s-tracks-of-the-week-64


Catch Lee Aaron live at the following UK venues:


July 16 LONDON, The Underworld

Lee Aaron Bio:


Canadian singer, songwriter and producer Lee Aaron first garnered acclaim with her sophomore release 'Metal Queen', an anthem of feminist empowerment that won her iconic status with legions of fans around the world. The late 80's and 90's brought critical and commercial success with chart-topping rockers like 'Whatcha Do To My Body', 'Hands On', 'Only Human' and 'Some Girls Do'.


With her invincible voice and powerful brand of music, Aaron was a trail blazer in the women's rock movement of the 1980's. A fearless re-inventor, she has ventured into the world of blues and jazz ('Slick Chick', 'Beautiful Things') - and even modern opera – to rave critical reviews. She’s been nominated for ten Juno Awards, won the CMPA Songwriters Award, a Much Music Video Award and an Ampex Golden Reel Award. Chart Magazine proclaimed her BodyRock LP (1989) one of the 20 most influential Canadian albums of the 80’s, with artists like Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morrisette and Shania Twain "under Aaron’s influence."


After taking more than a decade off to raise her children, Fire and Gasoline (2016) launched Aaron back into the international arena. Along with shows across Canada and the UK, she won the “Back In The Spotlight” fan’s choice award from Music Express and received a permanent star on the Arts Walk of Fame in her former hometown of Brampton, Ontario.


This summer brings a tour of the UK and Europe. Lee and her band are currently working on her next album, a fiery collection of blues-based rockers slated for release in the fall 2017!

Wayward Sons are delighted to announce the release of their debut album “Ghosts Of Yet To Come” on the 15th September through Frontiers Music Srl.


Wayward Sons is a UK guitar act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – Little Angels, Gun, Spear Of Destiny, Treason Kings and Chrome Molly to name a few – which is reassuring in terms of the band as players, but doesn’t really hint at their sound. Wayward Sons sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy – both musically and lyrically.


The band is set to release four videos to support single releases. The videos together will make one short film. You can see the first video for debut single 'Until The End' online now.


'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' is a hugely accomplished debut album – as might be expected. From the staccato riffing of 'Give It Away' to the melodic intro of first single 'Until The End', from the hard rock of 'Ghosts' to 4/4 rock of 'Don’t Wanna Go', the album sounds familiar yet of its own. Toby Jepson had the basis of songs written when the band formed. Together they then took these rough song ideas and forged their own sound. Lyrically the album sees Jepson treading a far more personal line than some of his previous output.


“I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above… besides, it wasn’t a choice, more of a need. My intention is very simple. I want to write about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too. It will be warts and all,” says Jepson.


The album was produced by Wayward Sons (Toby Jepson’s previous credits as a songwriter and producer include the likes of Katie Melua, The Virgin Marys, The Answer and Toseland) and Chris D’Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).


'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' will at turns surprise, beguile and inspire…


Wayward Sons have a series of live dates through 2017, with more to follow. Confirmed so far are:


26th July - BRISTOL, The Louisiana

28th July - PENTRICH, Rock & Blues Custom Show

29th July - MAIDSTONE, Ramblin' Man Fair

30th July - EBBW VALE, Steelhouse Live


'Ghosts Of Yet To Come' is released through Frontiers Music Srl on the 15th of September 2017.
