The Canadian Hyperblasters KATAKLYSM formed in 1991 and spread their first demo one year later Death Gate Cycle Of Reincarnation already obtained recognition worldwide and ultimately led to a record deal with Nuclear Blast, signed in 1993. Demo plus bonus track ‘The Orb Of Uncreation’ became KATAKLYSM’s first official release in the form of the MCD The Mystical Gate Of Recreation, also in stores 1993.
The extreme high speed Death Metal with its very own character shown on The Mystical Gate Of Recreation laid the foundation stone of a new metal style: The Northern Hyperblast. Thereafter, KATAKLYSM presented their very first full length album Sorcery, a revelation concerning fast and brutal metal. The release of Temple Of Knowledge in 1996 topped Sorcery in terms of destructiveness and wrecking energy – a true archetype that bestowed the band great compliment, euphoric critics and several well-visited tours.
Death metal stalwarts ABORTED returned to the forefront of the extreme metal scene in 2010 with their much lauded “Coronary Reconstruction” EP, which marked a return to the more straight-forward, brutal roots of the band and was supported by several tours through Europe and North America.
ABORTED spent the bigger part of 2010 and 2011 diligently writing the successor to “Coronary Reconstruction” and their new blood-soaked platter, entitled “Global Flatline”, has definitely been worth the wait. Two years in the making, the album reeks of dedication and intense, hard work and was produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen studios in Denmark. Combining the band’s undeniable ferocity and brutality with a perfect balance between technical elements and a gut-ripping old school feel, it literally is the soundtrack to the end of man. “Global Flatline” offers the fastest passages ABORTED has ever created as well as the slowest ones these lunatics have ever (de)composed. “Global Flatline” is an organic wall of death metal that leaves the listener disturbed, deranged and hungry for more.
Anna Nalick is a platinum selling singer and songwriter from California. In addition to writing all of her own music, Anna has been writing for other artists since the age of 15.
Starting in 2005, Anna released her first studio produced album, entitled: “Wreck of the Day,” featuring the hit single “Breathe (2AM)” under the SonyMusic label. The song propelled to the top of the charts and sent Anna on a nearly four year tour around the world. Featuring her third hit single “Shine,” Anna and SonyMusic released “The Shine EP.” Both “Wreck of the Day” and “The Shine EP” can still be heard widely on radio and television today, with “Breathe” being featured twice on the hit television drama “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Wanting to pursue a musical style free of label influence, Anna decided to part ways with SonyMusic in 2010 and in 2011, released her first independently produced album: “Broken Doll & Odds & Ends.” Anna describes the album as: “mostly acoustic with haunting and unusual instrumentation. I wanted to release the songs I wrote while I was with Sony before I move on to all new material. I liked the songs too much to just leave them all behind. Now I’m ready to explore new territory.”
Curtis Peoples is a pop artist and singer/songwriter with a defined understanding of how to create dynamic yet radio friendly music that fans of both rock and pop can enjoy equally.
Curtis’ self titled first album was produced by Marshall Altman (Matt Nathanson, Kate Voegele, Marc Broussard) and featured songs co-written by Curtis and writers such as Ryan Tedder, Tyler Hilton, and Vic Fuentes. Marshall even liked the finished product so much that he decided to put the album out on his very own Galtline/The Control Group/ADA label.
For this young singer/songwriter, writing and performing is the ultimate form of expression. Alaina: “writing a song from an emotion or a real experience and then performing that song to an audience is like a dream come true in itself!” Alaina Blair has been performing since at the age of 5 when her Grandfather built her a stage to sing from. Soon she began singing at festivals and pageants in her native Arizona as well as Southern California.
Alaina describes her music as Country/Americana with some rock and soulful influences. Recently, her self titled album was nominated for Best Americana Album Of The Year at The San Diego Music Awards. It also won Best Country Album at The 2013 LA Music Critic Awards. Her current influences include Grace Potter, Joss Stone, Norah Jones and Sheryl Crow. She met producer/musician Billy Alexander (FEEL, John Waite) in the summer of 2011 and the two began to write a batch of songs that later become Alaina’s debut EP entitled “Gypsy Girl” (available on iTunes and physical CD). Alaina released her latest full length self titled album in March 2013. Alaina and Billy wrote the first song with Ron Blair of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
Sometimes Julie features the singer-songwriter duo Monica Sorenson and Rick Walker.
The duo’s first encounter was in a dive karaoke bar, where ordinarily nothing good happens. Despite these shady origins, and while talking in between songs, the two learned that Rick’s head was full of music needing lyrics, and Monica’s words were longing for a song. This collaboration has given birth to their debut CD, HEAD FIRST, delivering fourteen powerful tracks.
Rick’s musical career began in the mid 90’s playing in clubs on the north side of Chicago. Blues, classic rock and alternative rock influences inspire both his songwriting and performance. A self-taught musician on guitar, bass, and keyboards, Rick’s music creates the foundation for the sound of Sometimes Julie. He is the backbone of the band.
Monica, a self-diagnosed karaoke addict, found herself looking for that next fix, craving gutsy rock songs and powerful ballads. She grew up in Denver, in a household of talented musicians, and appreciated all types of music. However, Monica chose to study and write poetry as her art form. Upon meeting Rick she became inspired to blend her two loves, her words and music. She now writes and sings lead for Sometimes Julie.
Joined by Andy Graham (drums), Andrew Yurman (bass), and Fred Barden (lead guitar), Sometimes Julie performs Americana/alternative rock originals, with the occasional classic rock/current pop cover tossed in for fun. Their sexy, raw sound and driving beat stir up everyone’s passionate side. You will want to move your feet!
Over 30 years in the rock and roll business, the story of THE ALARM is a continuing and ever unfolding drama that still commands worldwide attention since being formed in Rhyl, North Wales and is still fronted by lead singer and guitarist MIKE PETERS.
The Alarm can lay claim to a series of 15 Top 50 UK singles, including their classic hits, “68 GUNS”, “SPIRIT OF 76″, “RAIN IN THE SUMMERTIME”, “STRENGTH” “45 RPM” and of course “THE STAND”. Ten successful albums and over 5 million sales worldwide, The Alarm’s pioneering use of acoustic guitars brought the band into direct contact with the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young and U2, all whom have appeared and sung on stage with The Alarm.
Below is a never before seen Alarm video from 1984 which accompanies a brand new 30th anniversary remix of ‘Sixty Eight Guns‘. The version you will hear has been re-edited from the original ‘Declaration’ master tapes into the original arrangement that The Alarm used to play early in the band’s career without ‘trumpets’ and era defining production techniques.
Whether Jimmy Thackery headlines a festival in South Dakota or jams for hours in one of numerous blues bars that dot the musical landscape, he’ll always unleash an intense volley of rockin’ blues guitar guaranteed to leave crowds emotionally spent. His double edged guitar dynamics allow him to fire off tracer missiles, bend a note so it will fit under a limbo bar, run off dive bomber riffs, and find space within the trembling of one stinging note. “I put all my senses on hold and find the zone and follow what’s inside. There’s an electricity from your mind to your heart to your fingers. You just try and remember to breathe.”
Between constant road work with his own band, producing the latest record by his Arkansas friends, the Cate Brothers, recording Whiskey Store with Tab Benoit and touring in support and playing various Nighthawks reunions, Thackery’s plate is overflowing, and that’s exactly how Thackery likes life – Overflowing.
Wishbone Ash, one of the most influential guitar bands in the history of rock, kicks off the North American leg of their 2014 tour on April 15. The group returns to these shores to celebrate the release of their 24th studio recording, Blue Horizon, and perform their popular Live Dates album in its entirety.
Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash pioneered a melodic twin-lead guitar style that has influenced bands from Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden to Lynyrd Skynyrd and, more recently, heavyweights like Opeth. The group coalesces around strong songwriting and serious chops. Founding member Andy Powell handles lead vocals and trades licks with Finland’s guitar wizard Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, a 17-year veteran of the band and in-demand studio musician, sets the pace with Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain’s new breed of drummers, having played with Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson.
Huntington Beach, CA’s (hed) p.e. (the “pe” stands for “Planet Earth”) was founded in 1994 by frontman Jahred (aka M.C.U.D., aka Jerred Shaine), whose goal was to fuse the region’s long-standing punk rock heritage with G-funk-inflected hip-hop — a sound he labeled “G-punk.” Three years and a self-financed 1995 EP entitled Church of Realities later, (hed) p.e. (also comprising lead guitarist Wesstyle, rhythm guitarist Chizad, bassist Mawk, drummer B.C., and DJ Product on turntables and samples) released their eponymous debut through Jive Records, then hit the road with Ozzfest and bands like Korn, Static-X, and System of a Down. A second album, Broke, followed in the year 2000, and a third, Blackout, in 2003, after which (hed) p.e. switched labels from Jive to Koch, and underwent something of an overhaul (welcoming new guitarist Jaxon and drummer Moke) prior to recording their fourth album, 2005’s Only in Amerika. The all-new Back 2 Base X and the Best of (hed) Planet Earth compilation arrived in 2006, followed by Flat Bill Hat in the summer of 2007, and New World Orphans in 2009. A second compilation titled Major Pain 2 Indee Freedom: The Best of Hed P.E. was released in 2010, featuring a new track and a limited-edition DVD of the group performing live in Los Angeles.
Formed in 1997 Chicago Heavy Rock band SOiL quickly took the scene by storm.. After their first independent release, the band was the first rock group signed by the legendary Clive Davis to J Records. The band achieved mainstream success with their major label debut “Scars” in 2001. SOiL is best known for the classic hits “Halo”, “Unreal”, and “Redefine”.
The band went through brief line up changes until reuniting with original vocalist Ryan McCombs in October 2011 for a tour commemorating the tenth anniversary of their landmark album “Scars”. The band permanently rejoined with McCombs after his departure from Texas act Drowning Pool in late 2011. The line up is currently completed with fellow original members Tim King (Bass) and Adam Zadel (Guitar). The band has sold over one million records worldwide with their album “Scars” hitting Silver in the United Kingdom following the anniversary tour. SOiL’s first ever DVD entitled “Re-LIVE-ing The Scars” was released May 8, 2012 and was recorded live in London, England during the band’s sold out 2011 UK Tour.
Korpiklaani’s music consists of metal with a happy folky base. So does their choice of instruments, they use a mixture of electric guitars and drums as well as violin, woodwinds, jouhikko, djembé, and the typical Finnish folk instrument: the accordion. They reject synthesizers (of course), and use only genuine instruments.
To most people their music is so cheerful and lively that they cannot resist dancing, laughing and feeling happy. Maybe that is why fans call it ‘beer-metal’ (it certainly has the same effect as beer), but it could be also due to the many songs about this all-time favorite drink of Korpiklaani.
The first Korpiklaani albums contained merely English lyrics, but nowadays most lyrics are in Finnish. These lyrics are often written in the Kalevala-style (a special metre, from the Finnish national epic) and tell about nature, history, partying and the already mentioned beer of course!
Hear the roaring thunder? Finland’s finest metal export, Turisas is coming back – stronger than ever. Prepare yourselves for another wave of fist-pumping beat, catchy melodies and undisputed attitude, as the band is preparing for the launch of its 4th opus in Battle Metal.
Hailing from Hämeenlinna, Finland, Turisas is named after an ancient Finnish God of war. Ever since the debut album ”Battle Metal” (2004) came out, the band has become known as one of the most energetic, innovative and exciting metal acts both on record and onstage. Turisas has made its name through hundreds of shows and headline tours in Europe, the US, Russia and Latin America, and wherever the guys have set their foot, they have triumphed.
Often labeled as simply a folk metalband, the band defies easy genre definitions. Incorporating elements of symphonic power metal along with elements from prog, punk, death metal and even stadium rock, Turisas has truly carved a sound of their own. With no comparison, Turisas is as unique sounding battle metal as it gets.
While Taiwan is considered home of Austronesian peoples, and a mystic island nation in the Orient, advanced technologies and modern cities are also part of the image of Taiwan. The metal band Chthonic has given the best interpretation to the contrasting images of the country.
Chthonic’s lyrics are inspired by Taiwanese mythology, folk stories, and history, and the music incorporates elements of traditional Taiwanese folk music, enka, and sorrowful melody from Taiwanese opera, accompanied by traditional Taiwanese musical instruments, such as hena, zheng -also known as “box zither”- and pgaku flute. Also integral parts of Chthonic’s music are elements from contemporary symphonic black metal, melodic death metal, blood-boiling riffs and solos. Critiques have tried to label Chthonic’s music as black metal, death metal or folk metal, but Chthonic has chosen to use the term orient metal to define this genre of heavy metal music that’s unique to Taiwan. Meanwhile, Chthonic’s bassist Doris -who was dubbed one of the sexiest female rockers by Revolver, and has been on magazines such as FHM and GQ- is a bonus for fans all over the world.
On distant, misty plains, you hear the sound of steel clanking on steel; the gallop of a thousand frenzied horses; the swollen beat of the war drums. You hear some men cry out in victory, but even more cry out in pain as their last breath is forced from their lungs. What you hear, is Winterhymn.
With the fantasy and escapism of Power Metal and brutal bludgeonings of modern Death and Black metal, comes Winterhymn, a soulful monster intent on musical conquest and resotring honor to the name of Heavy Metal. Raise your swords and cheer with us, or ready your knees and fall before us. The invasion has begun.
Helsótt is Teutonic for “Fatal Illness”
Formed Feb 1st 2010 Helsótt is a melding of American Thrash/Death and Pagan Metal. Very melodic and very brutal music sets the pace for a high energy live act that can only be described as crushing.

After assembling an impressive collection of road-tested masterpieces, the group, composed of all leaders, decided that it was finally time combine their talents to make this musical statement.

Renowned guitarist Greg Howe, widely known for his rock / fusion instrumental recordings, had been considering doing an album featuring vocal-driven songs for quite a while. Long time friend, bassist Kevin Vecchione, had played on Greg’s “Five” album, as well as having toured with Greg previously.Through the years, over the course of their enduring friendship, Greg and Kevin had been discussing and mulling over the idea of being in a band together… They finally decided to stop talking and start acting, and the seeds of the band “Maragold” were sown. Drummer Gianluca Palmieri, who had also toured with Greg, and played on his recent album “Sound Proof”, was recruited to complete their dynamic rhythm section.
All they needed was “the voice”…
Kevin had Greg listen to some demos he had done with the new singer, Meghan Krauss. Greg enthusiastically agreed that she had “the voice”, but Meghan’s presence, personality, image, and especially her ability to inject herself into a song, truly made her the “total package” that they wanted in a vocalist. Meghan agreed to take on the duties as lead singer; Greg and Kevin immediately went to work writing songs befitting her vocal style.
The results are the ten amazing songs on the debut self-titled album, “MARAGOLD”. Combining exemplary musicianship and powerhouse vocals with provocative songwriting, the album represents a daring new direction for Greg Howe, which is sure to be an exciting experience for his fans, old and new.

Michael Schenker in UFO and then in his own band MSG, Gary Moore in his late-70s/early-80s heyday, Randy Rhoads and Jake E. Lee and of course the early Van Halen albums, all left an indelible mark on the musical psyche of Taz.

The Winery Dogs
It would be easy to call The Winery Dogs a supergroup: Vocalist and guitarist Richie Kotzen made his mark withPoison and Mr. Big, bassist Billy Sheehan has been rocking for decades withSteve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and others, and drummer Mike Portnoy was the co-founder of progressive metal superstars Dream Theater. But The Winery Dogs are so much more than a supergroup.
The proof is in the brew: The Winery Dogs is an eclectic, fully realized group with songs that groove and swing without sacrificing any of the grit that makes great hard rock so inspiring.

Matt Bissonette recorded bass guitar on the album, but because of his busy recording and touring schedule (Now with Elton John), he was not able to join the band for the live shows.

Russ has also performed with Bobby Kimball, former lead singer of the band Toto. Russ is an amazing bass player, but best of all, he’s a great guy. The band is very pleased to have him.

Yngwie Malmsteen was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 30, 1963. The youngest child in a household that included his mother Rigmor, sister Ann Louise, and brother Bjorn, Yngwie originally had no interest in music. However, on September 18, 1970, Yngwie saw a TV special on the death of guitar iconoclast Jimi Hendrix. Seven-year-old Yngwie watched with awe as Hendrix blasted the audience with torrents of feedback and sacrificed his guitar in flames. The day Jimi Hendrix died, the guitar-playing Yngwie was born. More history…
Recognition of Yngwie’s place in music history continues to come in. In Time Magazine, Yngwie found himself included as one of the “10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players.” Near the end of the year, Yngwie and his management company decided to begin releasing rare archival concert footage. The first was Yngwie in Korea, shot during his 2001 War to End All Wars Tour, in Seoul, South Korea. And that, asserts Yngwie, is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come!
Uli Jon Roth
Uli Jon Roth is a true multi-instrumentalist who writes his own musical scores and arrangements. He is also a music director, paints realistic oil paintings, writes his own poetry as well as philosophical treaties.
Uli invented his own unique instrument – the by now legendary 6-octave Sky guitar which is without peer.
He produces his own albums and directs his own videos. Artistically he has been an inspiration to many of his fellow artists as well as his audience and continues to be so. He has been cited by countless guitarists from all over the world as one of their main influences.
Widely recognized as perhaps the single most important protagonist of Neo-classical guitar playing, Uli is seen by many as a trend-setter who has often been considerably ahead of his time.
World renowned rock guitarist Gary Hoey takes on the Blues with his new album, “Deja Blues,” to be released in November 2012 on Wazoo Music Group. “This is an album of original blues songs I’ve wanted to record for a long time. The Blues has always been near and dear to my heart, I have so much respect for it. When I’m recording a blues song, it’s a 5 minute journey and you can’t take a breath, you can’t keep punching in the recording button to fix stuff or it loses the vibe.”
With a collection of 18 albums and a #5 Billboard Rock hit with “Hocus Pocus” it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time. Gary’s clients have included Walt Disney films, ESPN, New Line Cinema, and scoring the Roller Coaster “California Screaming” songs placed in “Office Space”, “Deck The Halls” with Danny Devito, Beethoven III (The dog movie) Endless Summer II full score.
Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, Steve Vai, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.
In his own words: Since the early 90’s as a recording artist, I’ve released 9 CDs, a live DVD, numerous appearances on comp CDs and as a guest performer on other albums. Been on the cover of a few guitar mags over the last 10 years, have done international headlining tours and festivals, and have been my own songwriter, band, studio, engineer, producer, manager, record label, promoter, publisher, publicist, booking agent, accountant… all of it. The latest Bumblefoot albums are “Abnormal” (July 2008) and an acoustic ep “Barefoot” (Dec. 2008). In 2011 I began releasing a song a month, covers and originals, each song including instrumental mixes, lead guitar transcriptions and backing tracks, and multi-track stems to make your own mix.
Been a member of Guns N’ Roses, touring since May 2006. Sold-out shows around the world, headlining festivals with crowds of 150,000. Recording with them since Oct ‘06, we released the “Chinese Democracy” album November 2008.
I’ve worked as a songwriter for other artists, for TV jingles, theme songs and background music. I’ve also written for classical instruments and orchestras. I’ve been hired by bands/labels for the past 20 years as a producer. This has included writing, arranging and performing, usually engineering. As a songwriter and producer, I have experience in pop, R&B, hip-hop, funk, disco, electronic, classical, opera, blues, folk, jazz, swing, Latin, Middle-Eastern, new-age, lounge, rock, progressive, industrial, metal, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s retro. Last cool things I did were 24-7 Spyz “Face The Day” CD, Return To Earth’s “Automata” & “Captains Of Industry” CDs (ft. Chris Pennie – drummer of Coheed, formerly Dillinger Escape Plan), and a rock re-mix of rapper Hurricane’s “Abaybay”. Full bio…
Select few professionals are possessed of the skill, passion and sheer tenacity to break record after record in their chosen field. And fewer still can stake that claim in more than one arena.

That Metal Show LIVE
From That Metal Show LIVE is a live show hosted by Eddie Trunk with co-hosts Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson. The tv show I premiered on VH1 Classic on November 15, 2008. New episodes air on VH1 Classic on Saturday nights and are rebroadcast throughout the week.
Discussions on the show focus on “all things hard rock and heavy metal”, past and present. Among the regular segments are round table discussions between the three regular hosts, top-5 debates, interviews with heavy metal musicians, “Stump the Trunk,” where audience members ask provided trivia questions of host Eddie Trunk in hopes of acquiring prizes, and “The Throwdown,” where the hosts and guests vote on and debate great moments and figures in metal history. The guitar & bass-heavy theme song, “Day to Remember” was co-written by co-host Jim Florentine and Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal and performed by Thal. The intro to “Stump the Trunk” was composed by Mark Fain.
THE all female Black Sabbath. Ozzy Era Sabbath done with incredible authenticity by amazingly talented women.
Christopher Cross was by far the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the #1 hit, “Sailing.”
Christopher Cross’ 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single “Ride Like the Wind” rocketed to the #2 spot; the massive success of the second single “Sailing” made Cross a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, “Never Be the Same” and “Say You’ll Be Mine,” he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five Grammys in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for “Sailing.” He soon scored a second #1, as well as an Academy Award, with “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” which he co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen for the smash Dudley Moore film comedy Arthur.
Ho Ho Hoey
In 1995 the first Gary Ho Ho Hoey album was released. Hoey’s idea to put a rock edge on Christmas classics was inspired by his mother’s love for Christmas and growing up in Lowell MA with his 4 sisters. “With the last name, Hoey, I decided one day to record an album called Ho Ho Hoey and re-do some of my favorite Christmas classics with a rock guitar.” It was an instant hit at radio and sold over 350,000 copies and has been a staple at most rock stations around the country ever since. “I love doing the Ho Ho Hoey Rockin Holiday Tour every year because I get to give back and help folks with various charities and toy drives. It allows me to help communities and have some fun at the same time. And it’s Hoey’s loyal fan base and his connection with them that keeps him going. “I come out after every show to meet the fans,” says Hoey. “I enjoy the feedback and interaction.”
