On September 25th 2020 BMG proudly release Slade’s Cum On Feel The Hitz, a superlative and comprehensive collection of Slade singles from 1970 to 1991. Cum On Feel The Hitz  is released as a  double CD and a 2LP collection: the CD comprises of 43 singles, while the double vinyl features 24 singles.

Cum On Feel The Hitz includes all six of their UK Number one singles: “Coz I Luv You”, “Take Me Bak ‘Ome”, ”Mama Weer All Crazee Now”, “Cum On Feel The Noize”, “Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me“ and “Merry Xmas Everybody”  and a total of 16 Top 10 singles.

The affection for Slade’s music and attitude remains undimmed today, as 1973’s “Merry Christmas Everybody” has gone on to become Britain’s best loved Christmas song.

Formed in Wolverhampton in 1966, Slade’s chart career spanned 3 decades. Slade were unstoppable throughout the seventies becoming one of Europe’s biggest bands, releasing 6 smash hit albums, including three No-1’s, and their hit singles are synonymous with the era. The sensational songwriting partnership of Noddy Holder and Jim Lea provided a soundtrack to the Glam Generation and with a run of 17 consecutive Top 20 singles between 1971 and 1976, no other act of the period experienced such success.

In the eighties Slade enjoyed a renaissance, buoyed by a spectacular appearance at the Reading Festival in 1980, their hits included “My oh My” , which reached number 2 in 1983 and a year later with “Run Runaway”, cementing their legacy as one of the UK’s greatest bands.

The iconic Slade are one of the most exciting bands to ever come out of Great Britain and this collection serves as testament to the high quality of Slade’s unique and distinctive talent.

Norwegian metal act PERFECT NME are proud to present their lyric video for ‘Shadow Of Doubt‘, track taken from their album ‘Remains To Be Seen‘ out via Wormholedeath / The Orchard / Aural Music.

Remains To Be Seen‘ digital album is available HERE

CD album is available HERE

The Band Stated:

Shadow Of Doubt‘ is the 2nd single off the album ‘Remains To Be Seen‘. This song was an obvious choice for a single, with it’s a mix of up-tempo beats and solid groove, setting up a large melodic chorus! The song is about that moment in a given relationship when doubt starts to creep in, when you recognize the warning signs and you realise you’re repeating a pattern which has led to failure in the past, revisiting the ghosts. Visually we gave the artist free reigns to create their own vision based on the lyrics and feel of the song.”

Line Up:

Colin Emery – Vocals

Eirik Jonnum Grinmes – Guitars

Terje Graven – Guitars

Ronny Syvertsen – Bass

Geir-inge Ravn – Dums

US hard rock band, Anti-Mortem , have released a lyric video for the new single ‘Old Washita‘. The song was recorded by Bob Marlette (Alice Cooper, Texas Hippie Coalition, Black Stone Cherry). Lyric video by RMG.

With the release of the single, ‘Old Washita‘, the Oklahoma quintet have returned to action – better than ever! “Anti-Mortem is back; older, wiser, and road tested”

For the Romo Brothers, Rado (vocals) and Nevada (guitar), the time is now…

Although they’re from the small town of Chickasha, Oklahoma (USA), Anti-Mortem is no stranger to the spotlight. In 2012, while still in their teens, the young band began turning heads throughout the Heavy Metal genre when they released their critically acclaimed, debut album, ‘New Southern‘, via Nuclear Blast. While on tour in support of their new LP, they shared the stage with a laundry list of “heavy-hitters” including Black Label Society, Machine Head, Lacuna Coil and Monster Magnet, among others, gaining valuable experience and industry knowledge along the way.

But the pressures of life on the road as a major-label recording artist began to take its toll, and like a lot of young bands that find success early on in their careers, Anti-Mortem eventually succumbed to internal strife and musical differences just as they began finding their way. It seemed like the dream was over before it ever started.

During the hiatus, Nevada and Rado each fed their musical appetites by putting out solo material, as well as both have been permanent members of Texas Hippie Coalition (Nevada on guitar: 2016- Present / Rado on bass: 2018-Present), allowing them to stay active on tour and in the studio.

After returning to the stage in the winter of 2018, and having drawn upon the experiences of the highs and lows in their young careers, the message is simple; Anti-Mortem is back for Round 2…older, wiser, and battle tested. The New Single, ‘Old Washita‘, is a throwback to the bands eclectic roots as a gritty, groove metal band driven by riffs, growling vocals, and memorable song writing. A backwoods story taken from an old Native American River that runs through the band’s hometown of Chickasha; ‘Old Washita‘ is the epitome of the “New Southern” energy. It sounds like the band hasn’t skip a beat.

With the new single and a retooled lineup, consisting of Timmy “The Hitman” Braun (ex-Texas Hippie Coalition, ex-Rikets) on drums, Coleby Thompson (ex-Nine Left Dead) on bass, and Arik Hanradton (Sign Of Lies) on guitar, Anti-Mortem have their sights set on picking up right where they left off.

Joe Bouchard has released a  video for the song ‘African Queen‘.

Joe had this to say about the latest single and video, “The African Queen was inspired by the classic movie from 1951 starring Humphrey Bogart. This song did not take long to write, and the excitement of the boat scenes reminded me of the river where I grew up. This was the first song finished for the album, and the rest followed pretty easily. This is one of my favorite new songs.

Joe Bouchard is best known as a founding member of Blue Öyster Cult. The original line-up sold millions of albums for Columbia Records, with such classic songs as ‘Don’t Fear the Reaper‘ and the #1 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart ‘Burning For You‘. Contributing to songwriting, and lead vocals on some of their greatest songs, such as ‘Hot Rails To Hell‘.

Joe releases his sixth solo album ‘Strange Legends‘ though his and his brother’s (Albert Bouchard) new imprint RockHeart Records / Deko Entertainment (ADA/Warner Music Group). The album is receiving a tremendous response around the globe and critics are embracing this latest release from the former member of Blue Öyster Cult.

If you’re an old school Blue Öyster Cult  fan you’re going to love ‘Strange Legends‘ by Joe Bouchard plain and simple. This is just a solid album top to bottom.

Also to celebrate the launch of RockHeart Records and the release of ‘Strange Legends‘, the Bouchard brothers are offering a limited amount of the official RockHeart Records Cowbell autographed personally by both Joe and Albert.

Alternative rock/metal vocalist Jen Janet has released her new single ‘I Don’t Belong‘, out on all digital platforms now. Released with a corresponding music video, ‘I Don’t Belong‘ expands upon the goth-rock sound she presented on her previous single, ‘Possession‘.

Falling down a continuous rabbit hole of evolution, she finds herself in a natural pocket of power on ‘I Don’t Belong‘. Self-described as a ‘multimedia musical project,’ Jen Janet has long-term industry experience as both a solo artist and front woman, as well as in fashion, makeup, photography, and videography. Built upon darker imagery, her new music highlights a noticeable shift in genres – her last solo EP, released in 2017, was a focused pop record. ‘I Don’t Belong‘ is both captivating and enticing – perfectly representative of where Jen Janet is at in her career.

About the track, Jen states: “The song ‘I Don’t Belong‘ was originally written a long time ago when I felt very lost. I wasn’t quite sure where my future was musically because I felt that everything I was working on was a dead end. I also felt like I did not really belong anywhere socially. I was living in the town I grew up in – it is a very small town in Massachusetts. I just didn’t fit in with most of the people there and although I appreciated the people around me, it was time to leave and explore other places, people, and things. Socially, a lot of the people I was hanging out with at the time were different from me and although they were kind to me, we had many different interests. I’ve always been somewhat introverted but I wanted to branch out and spend more time with people who have similar interests and world-views to my own, and feel more like I fit in.

A self-described ‘multimedia musical project,’ Jen Janet is an ethereal goth-rock dream. As the lead vocalist of multiple metal bands (Mimesis, Novarium), she’s dipped her toes into many waters, and has shared the stage with international touring acts such as Saving Abel, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Motionless in White, Puddle of Mudd, Buckcherry, and many more. Jen’s artistry is built around her sheer passion for all things media, including photography and videography, which she integrates into her solo work. She has been a notable force around the New England music scene for some time, while simultaneously working as both a print and runway model for various brands, including Subaru. A true chameleon, Jen combines her many creative layers with darker imagery and symphonic sonic influences to create her current alternative-based style. Her new single ‘Possession‘, released July 8th, highlights a return to her rock roots, after releasing a focused pop record in 2017. Jen Janet is finding her freedom in creation.

Iceland based power-trio Volcanova have released ‘Super Duper Van‘ . The single is the last one leading up to their upcoming debut album ‘Radical Waves‘, out August 21, 2020 on The Sign Records. Released with a music video, ‘Super Duper Van‘ tells the tale of a never-ending ride through outer space in a magic, flying camper, and has an epic chorus made possible by the band’s three singers.

Super Duper Van‘ is the third and final single leading up to Volcanova‘s debut album ‘Radical Waves‘. The Icelandic band, whose resumé includes 2 full UK tours and opening gigs for Elder and The Vintage Caravan to name a few, has written a true anthem. ‘Super Duper Van‘offers everything one could expect in a well-written stoner rock song – fuzzy riffs, headbanging bass grooves and spaced out lyrics. Adding to that is a tasteful use of vocal harmonies, rarely found in this genre of music.

The album, ‘Radical Waves‘, is to be released on August 21 by The Sign Records. An album that, in short, can best be described as a collection of uplifting moments with epic guitar solos that are underpinned by head banging bass grooves complemented with a tasteful use of cowbell!

Volcanova was founded in the summer of 2014 with principle song writer Samúel Ásgeirsson on guitar and vocals and after a few lineup changes the band finally settled on a winning formula with Þorsteinn Árnason of (Rock Paper Sisters) on bass and vocals and Dagur Atlason (Churchhouse Creepers) on drums and vocals.

The single ‘Super Duper Van‘ is out everywhere on July 31, 2020. Volcanova‘s debut album ‘Radical Waves‘ is released by The Sign Records on August 21 on vinyl, colored vinyl, CD and digital format.

Rock’n’roll blues group, Billy Walton Band today released their second single, ‘Cortez The Killer‘ from their forthcoming album ‘Dark Hour‘ which is due out later in 2020. Released on Harmonized Records, the album was recorded at Cambridge Sound Studio and was engineered by Grammy-nominated engineer Jim Salamone. This is a cover of Neil Young’s 1975 song of the same name.

Listen HERE

In ‘Cortez The Killer‘ Billy and his band share their take on the Neil Young classic, adding their own spin musically and instrumentally. Taking the guitar solos and adding a wah-wah effect and introducing a trumpet towards the end brings ‘Cortez The Killer‘ to a new and more modern level.

Speaking to American Songwriter on adding in the trumpet Billy Walton says, “To me using the trumpet at the end symbolized and painted the picture of Cortez charging across the ocean and conquering the Aztec. Our trumpet player, Bruce Krywinski Jr. really nailed the haunting sound I was looking for in the song. I just really thought it set the mood in the end.

With a new album on the way, and though unable to tour to support its release, Billy Walton Band has been interacting with fans through social media by posting live performances, clips of them jamming, and talking directly to them about what the band is up to.

Ron Coolen has released his new single ‘Paradise‘ and videoclip on all streaming platforms.
Paradise‘ is dedicated to the victims of the 2018 Camp Fire, the worst wildfire in California’s history that completely destroyed the city of Paradise.

Paradise‘ features intense and emotional guest contributions from Keith St. John (Burning Rain, Kingdom Come, Montrose) and Daniël Verberk (Physical Graffiti).

Listen on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0Pu…

The song ‘Paradise’ pays tribute to all the people who became victims of the devastating Camp Fire, which destroyed the complete city of Paradise, California. The images of the destruction are beyond imagination. The people went through terrifying times seeing their houses destroyed and not knowing whether their friends and families survived. They should never be forgotten.

This single-edit is different from the version on the album ‘Rise‘ (release date March 1, 2020 on RC Music).
