Ghosts of Atlantis - 3.6.2.4

Hailing from deepest, darkest Suffolk, Ghosts of Atlantis are a metal band that carry a wealth of experience and professionalism. Like both Cradle Of Filth, and Devilment before it, Ghosts of Atlantis continues the tradition and staple of the witch county trademark sound. The sound is dark and aggressive, sinister and twisted, yet universally appealing due to big chorus lines, emotive orchestration and massive hooks. Sonically, the band crosses many genres and lyrical styles, from poetic spoken word elements, full choirs, and memorable choruses to guttural destruction carried forth through the main vocals. Ghosts of Atlantis (G.O.A) features both present and past members of Devilment, Failed Humanity, The Conflict Within and Cold Lazarus. The band members involved have been signed to Nuclear blast, Candlelight records and New rising records. All of the members have been in bands together for the last 9 years, and the chemistry within the band is superb. All have been on either headline or support tours across the world in their various projects. Some names of note include Lacuna Coil, Motionless in White, Times of Grace, Prong, Biohazard, Lock up, and Soilwork. Add to this, a long line of festivals such as Graspop, summer breeze, Rockharz, hammerfest, Wave gothik treffen, and main stage performances at Bloodstock open air in the UK.

Supralunar - A New Hope

2015 debut album from the Swedish hard rockers. A NEW HOPE offers groovy, steamy rock 'n' roll with large doses of '70s glam completely free from feathers and sequins. Supralunar's album is a perfect blend of hard rock and glam as it was meant to be and not synonymous with umbrella drinks and neon colored spandex, as in the '80s. The songs are a mish-mash of hard rock, grooves and catchy melodies just as the rock gods had imagined it. a little dirty, tongue-in-cheek with a touch of seriousness and, above all, full steam rock n roll. It's contemporary but with one foot in the '70s. It's highly energetic and versatile hard rock with lots of harmonies. It's what you might get if you put Foo Fighters in a time capsule dressed up as the Sweet. It's Sweden's best kept secret.

Coldspell - A New World Arise

Coldspell are ready to strike again with the album A New World Arise. This is stunning recording that features 12 new songs of epic proportions and it's going to put ColdSpell firmly on the map. This is Scandinavian melodic rock of the highest order and will be a strong contender for the hard rock album of 2017.

Demons - Ace in the Hole

Linder Krister - Across The Never

His music sets the tone in award winning feature films. Global fashion giants such as H&M, Fendi, Agent Provocateur and Chanel battle it out and compete among themselves with his sound. But the man himself is not easily found. Now 13 years after the solo debut "Songs From the Silent Years," sound alchemist Krister Linder resurfaces with a new album; self-produced in New York, mixed in Los Angeles and mastered in Stockholm. With gold records and radio hits from various projects dating back as far as the late eighties, plus a substantial body of work in the 90's Stockholm underground electronic era (under an array of pseudonyms like Tupilaq, Yeti, Solaroid etc), Linder has been a prominent but equally mysterious figure on the Swedish music scene. After winning the awards for Best Music For Film (for two consecutive years in a row) at the Stockholm International Film Festival, Linder in 2009 decides to sell his stuff and cross the Atlantic to subject himself to a whole new existence - in a land and city where he has neither a past, track record or advantage. Inspired, clueless and armed only with the foolish trust of a poet, Linder rents an apartment overlooking Lower East Side Manhattan / New York. Here he is consumed and driven by an absurd dream: To let go of everything, begin from nothing, fully give in to the mystery & sometime return home with an album. And so the adventure begins.

Signal Red - Alien Nation

2020 release. Signal Red made it's mark in 2018 with the release of Under The Radar. The band is made up of outstanding musicians, principally guitarist Steve Grocott and vocalist Lee Small.

The debut caused quite a stir with it's strong melodic rock roots and this album, Alien Nation, is an extension of that robust rock sound that they have already proved themselves worthy of. We have here 11 tracks of sheer quality and Steve's playing shines through on all tracks. One to watch out for!

"We decided early on we are going to do this band our way and aren't going to think about what the flavor of the month is," explains guitarist Bjrn Gelotte. "In the end we are the ones who are going to have to play these songs and stand behind them and as long as we love what we you do and make the listener feel it then that's what makes it an In Flames song," he continues. "That may sound like a clich but it's true. We need the music to be as interesting to us as it is to our fans because this has never just been a job for us, it's a way of life."

In a music scene full of seemingly endless subgenres and transient trends, In Flames are an example of what it means to steadfastly stay true to your vision. Since forming in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1990 the legendary melodic metal act has toured the planet countless times and influenced many of today's biggest metal acts without ever ceasing to push their own signature sound forward.The band's relentless drive to innovate in light of their success is something that's been inherent in In Flames' approach from day one and it's something they've never lost sight of despite their countless accolades and constant reinventions. "We decided early on we are going to do this band our way and aren't going to think about what the flavor of the month is," explains guitarist Bjrn Gelotte.
