EDEN'S CURSE - "Forever" (2018) // Official Lyric Video // AFM Records

 
Renowned American author Dan Brown, who wrote 'The Da Vinci Code', is the inspiration behind multinational Melodic Metal band Eden's Curse and their brand new single 'Forever'.
 
Bassist and main songwriter Paul Logue picks up the story: “I actually wrote ‘Forever‘ way back in 2005 for Pink Cream 69 singer David Readman’s solo album. However, his label decided to push him in a more AOR direction, so I always kept this one on the back burner - ‘Sign Of The Cross‘ also came from the same session. I always knew it would see the light of day and Thorsten reworked it and made it more in keeping with where we are today as a band. Back then, I had just read Dan Brown’s brilliant novel ‘Angels & Demons‘ and the lyrics are based around that whole story and protagonist Robert Langdon's darkest moments in the night hunting down the illuminati assassin. A lot of people assume that our own song 'Angels & Demons' is based on the book, but it is not“.
 
Logue goes onto add "Dan Brown is my favourite author and I have read every one of his books. They are a constant source of lyrical inspiration. I just love the way he goes in so deep to his subject matter and isn't afraid to tackle some difficult yet thought provoking subject matters. It is such brilliantly written fiction, that it's almost believable".

New QUEEN Book 'Long Live Queen'

 
NEW BOOK, LONG LIVE QUEEN: ROCK ROYALTY DISCUSS FREDDIE, BRIAN, JOHN & ROGER, OFFERS UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE OF CLASSIC BAND
 
There is a reason why there have been countless books penned over the years about Queen and their legendary singer, Freddie Mercury - they were unquestionably one of the greatest and most universally beloved rock bands of all-time.
 
However, most of these books can be neatly filed into one of three categories - a recounting of the band’s history, an examination of the singer’s life story, or a collection of photographs.
 
Long Live Queen: Rock Royalty Discuss Freddie, Brian, John & Rogeris the first-ever book to be comprised solely of interviews conducted with renowned musicians, who discuss what they admire most about Queen, their favorite songs and albums, and other standout Queen-related memories (attending shows, meeting members, etc.) from throughout the years.
 
The result is a book that uncovers facts, insight, and analysis, and adds a new spin on what truly makes Queen the champions of the world.
 
Greg Prato is a Long Island, New York-based journalist, who has written for Rolling Stone, Classic Rock, and Vintage Guitar, and has authored such books as Shredders!: The Oral History Of Speed Guitar (And More), A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon, and Grunge Is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music. Long Live Queen is his 25th book overall.
 
Long Live Queen: Rock Royalty Discuss Freddie, Brian, John & Rogeris available as a paperback version [222 pages, $12.99], a Kindle download [$7.99], and is free for Kindle Unlimited members.

ALTITUDES & ATTITUDES Debut Out January 18

Friday, January 18, 2019
Categories: 
ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE featuring ANTHRAX bassist Frank Bello and MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, will release it's debut album, "Get It Out", on January 18, 2019 via Megaforce. The follow-up to ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE's 2014 self-titled EP was once again produced by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAXSTEEL PANTHERSTONE SOUR), with Jeff Friedl (A PERFECT CIRCLEASHES DIVIDE) returning behind the kit.
The official lyric video for the first single, "Out Here", made by by Melody Myers of Designed By Melody, can be viewed here:

The track features a guest appearance by ANTHRAX guitarist Jon Donais.

A kind of rock 'n' roll primal-scream therapy, "Get It Out" is the result of nearly four years of writing and recording sessions — and decades of touring, searching, striving and liiving. "I've learned that writing songs is very cathartic," says Bello, who has long made songwriting a daily practice. When ANTHRAX is off the road, he tries out new material at open mics around New York City. "A lot of these lyrics are about the inner struggles of my life, and about the rage that has built up from my life experiences — my brother's murder; my father abandoninng my family when we were young, leaving us with no funds to pay the bills," he says. "The ups and downs of life in general. I've always had an anger inside that music really helps me deal with."

"The album has the perfect title," Ellefson adds. "This is music that has been living inside of us for so long. There's a big musical part of each of us that doesn't get heard anywhere else."
Boasting a deep bench of guest stars, including Ace Frehley (ex-KISS; the track "Late"), Gus G. (OZZY OSBOURNEFIREWIND), Nita Strauss (ALICE COOPER), Christian Martucci(STONE SOUR) and Satchel (STEEL PANTHER), the record also represents the fulfillment of a lifelong but little-known ambition for two uniquely gifted artists. As Bello puts it, "All I ever wanted to do was write good songs. I've always been a melody guy. I love hooks; I love catchy songs with a good riff."
The ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE story begins in 2010, when Bello and Ellefson started touring together to lead bass clinics for the amp manufacturer Hartke. In need of backing tracks to support their demonstrations, they embarked upon some writing sessions and discovered their chemistry.
Bello and Ellefson debuted ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE in early 2014, with a self-titled three-song EP that earned the duo airplay on SiriusXM and an appearance on VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show". Those tracks — p;"Booze and Cigarettes""Tell the World""Here Again" — are includedd on "Get It Out" as bonus cuts, in remixed and remastered form.
Ellefson explains that "ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE could have only happened at this moment in time" — when the titans of thrash metal's "Big Fouur" are older, wiser, kinder and more open creatively. "When you're still climbing up the hill," he says, "there's no room for friendly competition. But once you've been to the top of the hill and you've seen the view — which all of the 'Big Four' have — it's okay to breakeak bread, hang out, have a drink." Or, in the case of ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE, delve into hard-rock songwriting in a profound way. "To hear other sides of us as artists — not just as muusicians and performers, but as artists."
ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE has several shows booked in early 2019, including on the ShipRocked cruise in late January.
Tour dates 2019:
Jan. 26-31 - ShipRocked Cruise
Feb. 07 - Nottingham, U.K. - Rescue Rooms
Feb. 09 - Manchester, U.K. - Academy 3
Feb. 10 - London, U.K. - Underworld
Feb. 12 - Norwich, U.K. - The Waterfront

MAGNUM Set To Release New Live Album January 18

Artist: 
Friday, January 18, 2019

MAGNUM New live album LIVE AT THE SYMPHONY HALL Out January 18th, 2019
 
New live single and lyric video LOST ON THE ROAD TO ETERNITY (feat. Tobias Sammet) Out November 09, 2018
 
Every music lover knows that the closing concert of a long tour is always a very special event. For weeks in advance the audience has been able to read up on how much the band has been celebrated in their previous concerts evening after evening and they are all the more excited to see their heroes with their own eyes. After having played those numerous concerts, the band is in excellent shape, perfectly attuned to one another and of course they want to outdo themselves with this final show. One of those tour finales took place on 19 April 2018 inside Birmingham`s Symphony Hall. It was there that the British rock band Magnum completed their Road To Eternity tour, which consisted of 42 concerts, and performed at the highest level.
 
'A truly magical evening', guitarist Tony Clarkin confirms, 'especially seeing as the show was a sort of home game for us, since all of us are from around the area between Birmingham and Wolverhampton, although during the last 20 years we have performed in Birmingham only once. In this respect it was a special moment for Magnum in more than one way.' According to the occasion, band members Tony Clarkin, vocalist Bob Catley, bassist Al Barrow as well as their two newest members keyboarder Rick Benton and drummer Lee Morris confidently played their way through a well-chosen mix of classics and newer songs, which rather successfully join the ranks of the band`s long tradition of atmospheric rock songs.
 
Star guest Tobias Sammet (Avantasia, Edguy), too, was swept along by this enthusiasm and the blazing interaction between the musicians and their Birmingham audience when he went on stage for 'Lost On The Road To Eternity' to lend energetic support to vocalist Bob Catley just like he did for the track's studio recording. Oh and just by the way: As a forerunner to this gripping live album 'Lost On The Road To Eternity' will hit the market as a digital single on November 9th, 2018.
 
All that's left to ask now is what makes Live At The Symphony Hall any different from former Magnum live recordings. 'Bob and I have been in this band for quite a while now, but we've never lost our passion for Magnum', Clarkin elaborates. 'We want to keep learning new things and are open to tips and advice. That's why we constantly revise our old songs, sometimes we play them a bit faster, sometimes a bit slower, we change a solo here and a part of the melody there. That way we not only keep our audience interested but also our own enjoyment in these pieces alive.' There isn't a more fitting way to describe the magic that happens on Live At The Symphony Hall.
 
"Live At The Symphony Hall" will be released through SPV/Steamhammer on January 18th, 2019 as 2CD DigiPak, 3LP Gatefold, download and stream.

HEARTS OF FIRE are a long-term project for MRR and the guys, this is definitely going to be one of those debut albums you look back upon as a classic.
 
Stay tuned for more and PREORDER NOW
 
 
 
Formed in 2017, by Jean Funes, guitarist of Sound Of Eternity. He had the vision to create an AOR / Melodic Hard Rock band in the style of his lifetime heroes; Def Leppard, Journey, Whitesnake, Scorpions, Europe, and called his former bandmate in Codigo Eterno, drummer Joel Mejia, who shares this passion and vision of creating new music, and together HEARTS ON FIRE was started.
 
The searching for vocalist begun and Richard Andermyr of Rian was contacted after listening to the great Rian debut album and was introduced by Andrew McNeice. Richard proved to be a perfect fit for the band, not only with his voice but because of his chemistry with the rest of the band. First single was created and recorded as the first song of the project, “Hearts On Fire”, an uplifting mid-tempo song with great hooks and melodies, being the perfect example of what the band have in their hearts to create.
 
Nello Dell’omo created the great logo and the artwork for the debut album titled “Call Of Destiny”, “We chose this name because we believe that it’s our fate to create music and deliver a message from the heart to the listener. Everything happens for a reason and we are together doing this, even with the fact that we are separated by an ocean, so far from each other.” says Jean Funes.
 
“This is the album I always wanted to make” says Jean Funes. “Sound of Eternity had that modern rock touch all over it and I’m proud of the album we made. But Hearts On Fire - Call Of Destiny have all the elements that I’ve always loved from Melodic Rock music and it comes natural for me to create songs in this style, because I grew up listening to all these great bands from the 80’s and early 90’s.”
