HRH8

 

Following the official cancellation of W.A.S.P., HRH are pleased to announce that Queensrÿche will be stepping up to the top slot and will be jetting in for a UK exclusive at HRH 8 this November. Queensrÿche, featuring Todd La Torre have recently been enjoying tremendous success performing to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide and now can’t wait to perform their latest show in front of the HRH loyal.

Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensrÿche. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album “The Warning” in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of “Rage For Order”, Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80’s. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album “Operation:Mindcrime”, which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time,

Queensrÿche have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

Current Members include

Todd LaTorre – Lead Vocals;

Michael Wilton – Guitar;

Eddie Jackson – Bass;

Scott Rockenfield – Drums;

Parker Lundgren – Guitar

It was a shame to see Lizzy Borden complete their 30 years of Metal World Tour without any UK shows, however after a quick chat we are now pleased to announce that Lizzy Borden will also fly in for a UK exclusive this November @ HRH 8.

Girlschool have also been confirmed for HRH 8

Well, they’ve had to put the stops on the song writing and are now getting ready to drop into HRH for another jaw breaking performance.

NWOBHM Vets, Girlschool are back, and it couldn’t be better timing as they are just about to go back into the studio, to lay down their next album. Girlschool have wooed the HRH loyal before but after a 3 year gap and by public demand they’re back for this one off special performance.

Jonni Davis founder HRH commented, “it was a long time ago when I first met the girls while touring with Motorhead and don’t think I’ve ever heard a female band play at that level of sound. TBH, I’ve not heard it at that level since, hence why I’m going to put them on an even bigger stage and rig this time and see what the sound like at 113…for that, I can’t wait.”

 

 

 

Winger

‘Queen Babylon’ is the new music video by U.S melodic hard rock band Winger.

The 5th music video to be taken from the band’s latest album ‘Better Days Comin’ – Queen Babylon follows the videos for ‘Rat Race’ ‘Midnight Driver Of A Love Machine’ ‘Tin Solider’ and ‘Better Days Comin’.

“Soundwise, ‘Queen Babylon’ is classic first-album Winger meets Winger of today” explains Winger frontman Kip Winger. “This video features the exclusive, unreleased extended audio version of the song with a dual solo from Reb [Beach] and John [Roth] at the end that isn’t featured on the album version. It is also the first video to include our original keyboardist Paul Taylor since [1990’s] ‘In the Heart of the Young.‘”

I have three different things I do: solo records, classical music and the band. And the sound of Winger is when Reb plays guitar and I play bass, and we write from that perspective,” Winger explained in an interview with Songfacts. “It’s really helped my rock writing to have studied composition for so long, because I can now take a riff that normally any given band might repeat four times, and then move to the next thing … Bach never did anything more than three times, so there’s a whole plethora of s— that I do on both levels. One feeds the other.”

Khaøs Risen

 

Swiss/US rockers Khaøs have today revealed more information regarding the release of their much anticipated debut album ‘Risen’. Recorded by Rolf Munkes at his Empire Studios in Germany and mastered by music legend and award winner for Adele’s ‘21’ Tom Coyne at Sterling Sound in New York; ‘Risen’ follows the bands revered 2012 ‘Rising’ EP and will be released on 20th October via Plastichead Distribution/MRR Records.

Guitarist Mark Rossi comments: “The subject matter transcends individual boundaries, hearkening to darker scenarios yet striving for resolution. The lyrical approach follows a trend of maintaining hope while facing difficulty and conflict. All the evil of mankind cannot suppress the people if they won’t let it. Aside from the lyrics and tone, the project’s unifying element is one of hard rock expression, which defies definition with every song.”

Frontman Chandler Mogel (also of Outloud & Chrome Public) adds: “Musically and lyrically ‘Risen’ is a continuation from ‘Rising’, which was just a taste but began to touch on some of the deeper subject matter that I wanted to develop further into my writing; I had also been writing some Outloud songs with deeper meanings but for me it wasn’t really working in that setting. I knew I needed a different approach musically for it, and Khaøs seemed like the right fit so I channeled this focus there. I wanted an outlet to really convey problems with society, personal struggles, mental mechanisms, and the reasons for all of this. As always I leave the lyrics open to interpretation from the listener as each person will take something different from them, but these are general themes that are prevalent here.”

‘Risen’ Track Listing
01) After The Silence
02) Crisis Factor
03) Exalted
04) Loaded Question
05) End Of Daze
06) Merchants Of Khaøs
07) Ride The Chain
08) Hung The Moon
09) Imagined Danger
10) Static Windows
11) As Far As We Go
12) The Breathing Room

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Whitesnakes’s multi-platinum ‘Slide It In’ album, Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian-based label, will release “Live In ‘84 – Back To The Bone”, a complete celebration of the group’s awe inspiring line-up during what many feel was the incredible beginning of what David Coverdale called his desire to make Whitesnake more ‘electrifying’ on record and on stage.

Set for release in Europe on November 7th, in the UK on November 10th, and in North America on November 11th, this release will be available in DVD and a Deluxe CD/DVD edition.

Culled from audio and video recordings and unheard demos from the private collection of Whitesnake leader and vocalist, David Coverdale, the release offers an ultra-rare collection of material, performed by the band’s acclaimed 83-84 line-ups. Featured on the record is the awesome Cozy Powell on drums (ex-Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, MSG and later on Gary Moore and Black Sabbath); unique guitarist John Sykes, whom Coverdale credits with inspiring a whole generation of six stringers after his breathtaking work on the Whitesnake ’87’ album and bassist exceptionnnel, Neil Murray.   Bonus content features legendary keyboardist Jon Lord performing his last show ever with Whitesnake on video and also the bonus CD.

“It’s still hard for me to find the words when remembering that half the incredible band who originally recorded the ‘Slide It In’ album with me have passed away,” says Coverdale. “It’s incredibly difficult to articulate: Cozy Powell, Mel Galley, Jon Lord – all amazing people and amazing musicians. Their memories live on in our hearts and in the music they made. I miss them beyond words.”

Coverdale and co-producer Michael McIntyre launched a worldwide search for the best quality video footage and audio tracks from the 1984 tour. Among the gems found was a set from: ‘Super-Rock’, recorded at the first Japanese rock festival at Seibu Stadium in Tokyo and an invaluable video of Jon Lord’s final appearance with Whitesnake recorded live in Sweden.

“All of the features have been treated lovingly and respectfully, with no expense spared, utilizing technology to improve sound and picture quality,” says Coverdale, who personally oversaw all elements of this release. Concludes Coverdale – “These are memories I treasure and delight in sharing with you as we continue our celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Whitesnake’’s ‘Slide It In’.
