WITHIN SILENCE - Gallery Of Life (Showcase)

Release Year: 
2015
Gallery Of Life
Produced By: 
Jan Cvercko
Release Date: 
2015
Released: 
Europe
Genre: 
Metal
Categories: 
 
Within Silence is a young, promising melodic metal band that are ready to make an impact in the metal scene with their debut album “Gallery of Life”.
 
The band was formed under the name “Rightdoor” in 2008 by Martin Klein and Richard Germanus and was operating more as a project during the first years. Besides Martin and Richard, some other musicians were involved but no stable line-up was kept. During 2012 the band recorded a single that helped them to get the word out.
 
The following year the band found new members and the current line-up was completed as Peter Gacik [drums], Martin Cico [guitars] and Filip Andel [bass] joined the band.
 
Rightdoor was now a full band and started to play shows around in their home country Slovakia. During 2013 and 2014 they shared the stage with bands like Dark Moor, Theocracy, Blaze Bayley and more.
 
At the end of 2014 the band finished the recordings of their debut album entitled “Gallery of Life” with the help of producer Jan Cvercko. The guys then felt that they needed a stronger band name, so they decided to change it to “Within Silence”. Early 2015 Within Silence signed a deal with the Swedish label Ulterium Records, and the debut album “Gallery of Life” is scheduled to come out early May in Europe and North America.
 
Strong musicianship and the ability to write interesting songs with memorable melodies makes Within Silence a band to be reckoned with for years to come. Their debut album “Gallery of Life” got everything from up-tempo power metal tracks like “Silent Desire” and “Emptiness of Night” to pounding metal tracks like “The Last Drop of Blood” to epic metal songs like “Road to the Paradise”.
 
“Gallery of Life” will be a perfect album for fans of bands like Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius and Theocracy and fans of melodic metal in general.
 
The artwork was created by Jan Yrlund at Darkgrove Design [Delain, Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani].
 
Line-up:
Martin Klein - Lead vocals, backing vocals
Richard Germanus - Solo & rhythm guitars, growls, backing vocals
Martin Cico - Rhythm guitars
Filip Andel - Bass, backing vocals
Peter Gacik - drums

Former ANGEL Frontman FRANK DIMINO Comeback Album 'Old Habits Die Hard'

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Friday, July 3, 2015
Categories: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl announces the release of the hotly anticipated comeback album from former ANGEL singer Frank DIMINO, entitled “Old Habits Die Hard” on July 3rd in Europe and July 10th in North America.
 
While Frank is undoubtedly the brainchild of DIMINO, “Old Habits Die Hard” sees him collaborate with some heavyweights of the Las Vegas music scene, where he currently resides. Under the production of Paul Crook (MEAT LOAF, ANTHRAX), the album sees the participation – among others - of Oz Fox (STRYPER), Eddie Ojeda (TWISTED SISTER), Rickey Medlocke (BLACKFOOT, LYNYRD SKYNYRD), Pat Thrall (HUGHES/THRALL), Jeff Duncan (ARMORED SAINT), Jeff Labansky, former ANGEL bandmates Punky Meadows (on guitar) and Barry Brandt (who co-wrote with Frank the song “Even Now”) and many others.
 
Frank says, “It all started because of the relationships between Ken Ciancimino, Paul Crook, myself and the musicians that appeared on the album. I started writing songs with Oz Fox and Jeff Labansky and then Paul suggested we use John Miceli (drums) and Danny Miranda (bass) as our rhythm section and Justin Avery for keys & background vocals because of his relationship from playing with them for Meat Loaf. When the recording started, our friends wanted to be part of it and one after the other Pat Thrall, Punky Meadows, Eddie Ojeda, Rickey Medlocke and Jeff Duncan provided their amazing musicianship to the album. I feel truly honored to have had all these great musicians be a part of this project!
 
Frank Dimino was the frontman for ANGEL in the second half of the 70’s. The band was discovered by KISS bass player Gene Simmons who got them signed to Casablanca Records, where they released 5 critically acclaimed studio albums and one live one. After the band’s demise, Dimino went on to work with UFO’s Paul Raymond and worked as a singer on soundtracks, scoring a Platinum album for the inclusion of his song “Seduce Me Tonight” with Cycle V on the “Flashdance” soundtrack.
 
“Old Habits Die Hard” is going to take many by surprise, as it is definitely not a nostalgia fest, but really a rather compelling and inspired Hard Rock release. Frank says: “I'm excited to reach new fans as well as many Angel fans. There is certainly a connection between then and now, and that is still about making a great record with great musicians!
 
Frank Dimino is now back and here to stay. Look out for DIMINO live shows soon in a city near you!
 
Enjoy the video for “Rockin’ In The City” here:
 
 
 
“Old Habits Die Hard” tracklisting: Never Again; Rockin’ In The City; I Can’t Stop Loving You; The Rain’s About To

It’s 'Now or Never' for Veronica Freeman’s Solo Project THE V

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Friday, July 3, 2015
Categories: 
Frontiers Music Srl announces the release of Veronica Freeman’s solo project THE V debut album entitled "Now or Never" on July 3rd in Europe and July 10th in North America.
 
Veronica “The V” Freeman is the iconic singer of the Heavy Metal heavyweights Benedictum and THE V marks a major step out of her comfort zone, since it delves into a definite melodic Hard Rock vibe.
 
An impressive array of talent has stepped up to assist THE V in creating her solo project on many levels. The list includes Pete Wells, Aric Avina and Rikard Stjernquist of BENEDICTUM, Michael Sweet (STRYPER), Garry Bordonaro (THE RODS), Jeff Pilson (DOKKEN, FOREIGNER), Mike Lepond (SYMPHONY X), Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH), Leather Leone (CHASTAIN), Jerry Dixon (WARRANT), Jimmy Durkin (DARK ANGEL), Mick Tucker (TANK), Jordan Ziff (AGE OF EVIL), Derek Kerswill (UNEARTH, KINGDOM OF SORROW), Peter Tentindo (VENUS MARS PROJECT), John Herrera, Ryan Greene, Kenny Lewis, Meliesa McDonell, Michael Harris , Mel Brown and John O’Boyle.
 
Veronica comments: "I had a lot of input and encouragement from Frontiers to try and stretch myself with different musical styles and approaches. It was great to be able to work with Pete Wells writing some of these songs too. So, it was a no-brainer to accept their proposal for a solo album. I am a bit nervous and beyond excited!"
 
Be prepared! If you thought Veronica was just a Heavy Metal Amazon, you’re going to be proven dead wrong! This is a massive Melodic Hard Rock record with some great lead vocals which show a lot of the original influences that brought “THE V” to be one of the most well know and recognized voices in the current Metal scene!
 
Enjoy an album trailer:
 
 
“Now or Never” tracklisting: Again; Now Or Never; Roller Coaster; L.O.V.E; Line In The Sand; Love Should Be To Blame; Kiss My Lips; Spellbound; Starshine; Below Zero; Ready To Run; King For a Day.

U.D.O. 'Navy Metal Night' Out July 31st (EU) / August 18th (US)

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Friday, July 31, 2015
Categories: 
 
On July 31st, the new U.D.O. DVD/2CD 'Navy Mettal Night' will be released via AFM Records.

In February 2014, U.D.O. played a very special sold out show, accompanied by a German Navy Orchestra (Marinemusikkorps Nordsee). The symphonic sound of the orchestra and the choir  merged with the songs of U.D.O.  and made the evening a unique unforgettable experience for the audience.

This bombastic live event will now be made available for all fans of U.D.O., either on DVD or BluRay plus 2 CDs.

And at this year’s WACKEN OPEN AIR, the unique musical collaboration can be seen live on stage  again, this time with the German Federal Armed Forces Orchestra.
 
"I was simply overwhelmed by the whole event, it’ss like a dream came true”,  Udo Dirkschneider states. “It’s really more than words can say. This DVD will be something special to me, definitely a highlight of my career.”
“Navy Metal Night” is produced by Mattes & Björn Schlüter and co-produced by Udo Dirkschneider. Mixed by Mattes & Björn at Redhead Studio A, Wilhelmshaven and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, Ribe, Denmark.
