MRR100 Final Track Listing Revealed With Audio Samples

Friday, May 31, 2019
Categories: 
 
2019 sees MRR reach the milestone of 100 releases. So what better way to celebrate the milestone than a compilation of the artists featured on MRR.
 
This however, isn’t your average ‘best of’ affair – this compilation will feature songs that didn’t make the albums MRR released – hence the title ‘Left Off The First 99’.
 
‘Left Off The First 99’ will offer a range of bonus tracks featured from the first 99 releases, plus some exclusive unreleased tracks from the recording sessions that spawned those albums.
 
And for good measure – a little taste of what’s to come in the year ahead, with some exclusive preview tracks from upcoming MRR releases.
 
MRR100 is a 2CD set priced at $25 (including airmail shipping) and is strictly limited to 500 units.

NEW AUDIO:
 
 
Hard rock singer MARTIE PETERS bounces back with the comeback of a lifetime and a new album in 2019. The new album is aptly titled "Unfinished Business" and after a ten-year absence from the hard rock scene, Peters and his group return with catchy hooks and heavy, grooving guitar riffs. Legendary producer NEIL KERNON (Dokken, Britny Fox, Hall & Oates, Queensrÿche and many, many more) handled the mix.
 
Martie comments: “I am absolutely delighted about working with Andrew McNeice again, it feels like a homecoming. I have spent a lot of blood, sweat and hard work on this new album. It is such a thrill for me that Andrew and MelodicRock Records are on the same team as me.
The forthcoming batch of songs are in good hands and that makes me PROUD!”
 
MRR’s Andrew McNeice: “Martie and I have been mates for almost as long as I’ve been running MR. I’ve always been a huge fan of his work and style, so much so that I had them as part of the first MRF event back in 2007. I’m thrilled Martie has shown faith in MRR to get this cracking new album out to fans soon.”
 
Today Martie Peters and MRR are pleased to launch the lead track, with this lyric video:
 
 
Produced by Martie Peters
Mixed by Neil Kernon
Mastered by JK Northrup at Alien Productions

The album line-up includes all keyboards by the great ERIC RAGNO and guitars Konstantin Raidovski; bass Bent “BJ” Joergensen; drums Felix Engel + guests.

Friday, March 15, 2019
Categories: 
 
MelodicRock Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Danish AOR hero MARTIE PETERS for his new MARTIE PETERS GROUP record ‘Unfinished Business’, due March 15.
 
The new album is fabulous and filled with glorious melodic rock anthems that all fans of PUSH & the first two MPG albums will immediately recognise.
 
Hard rock singer MARTIE PETERS bounces back with the comeback of a lifetime and a new album in 2019. The new album is aptly titled "Unfinished Business" and after a ten-year absence from the hard rock scene, Peters and his group return with catchy hooks and heavy, grooving guitar riffs. Legendary producer NEIL KERNON (Dokken, Britny Fox, Hall & Oates, Queensrÿche and many, many more) handled the mix.
 
Martie comments: “I am absolutely delighted about working with Andrew McNeice again, it feels like a homecoming. I have spent a lot of blood, sweat and hard work on this new album. It is such a thrill for me that Andrew and MelodicRock Records are on the same team as me.
The forthcoming batch of songs are in good hands and that makes me PROUD!”
 
MRR’s Andrew McNeice: “Martie and I have been mates for almost as long as I’ve been running MR. I’ve always been a huge fan of his work and style, so much so that I had them as part of the first MRF event back in 2007. I’m thrilled Martie has shown faith in MRR to get this cracking new album out to fans soon.”

01. When The Circus Hits The City 03:45
02. She's Got A Secret 03:58

Today Martie Peters and MRR are pleased to launch the lead track, with this lyric video:
 
 
Produced by Martie Peters
Mixed by Neil Kernon
Mastered by JK Northrup at Alien Productions
Audio editing by Lukas Fredriksson
 
The album line-up includes all keyboards by the great ERIC RAGNO and guitars Konstantin Raidovski; bass Bent “BJ” Joergensen; drums Felix Engel + guests.
 

 
In the late 90's and early 00's Martie fronted the Sleaze Rock band PUSH, with who he released four albums. PUSH toured with Pretty Maids and opened up for artists such as Dio and Royal Hunt in Copenhagen, Denmark.
 
In 2004 the first Martie Peters Group album was released through German label MTM and Avalon in Japan. In 2007 the second album "Road to Salvation" which was mixed by TOMMY HANSEN at Jailhouse Studio and released through NL Distribution and through Spiritual Beast in Japan.
Both albums got raving reviews from the rock press.
 
‘Unfinished Business’ is just that, it’s the next chapter in Martie’s musical journey. It is an album that will blow long-time fans away, while opening up his music to a whole range of newcomers.
 
The release date is March 15. PREORERS AVAILABLE FRIDAY

MICHAEL JESSEN Joins MelodicRock Records With 'Bulletproof'

Friday, March 15, 2019
Categories: 
 
MelodicRock Records is excited to welcome guitarist MICHAEL JESSEN to the label.
 
MRR will release Michael’s new album ‘Bulletproof’ alongside fellow Dane Martie Peters on March 15.
 
Born and raised in Denmark, Michael Jessen played with several rock bands through his youth, including “McTamparcs” to “High Octane”, “RockStar” and several others.
He picked up the guitar by the age of 15, and a childhood friend taught him how to play the main riff for AC/DC’s “Hells Bells”.
 
For 2014’s debut ‘Memories’, Michael teamed with one of his vocal heroes Goran Edman, who I am very pleased to say is back in the frontman role for all vocals on the new ‘Bulletproof’ release.
 
The full album credits are:
 
Line-up:
Vocals: Göran Edman
Guitars: Michael Jessen
Bass: Christoffer Hoås
Drums: Mads Grunnet
 
All songs written by Michael Jessen
Produced by Christian Bonde and Michael Jessen
Mastered by Christian Bonde at CB Studios, Denmark
Guest Vocals on Beautiful Life by Lydia Salnikova
Piano on Beautiful Life by Morten Dybro
 
 
Tracklist:
01. Stand My Ground
02. Coming Home Tonight
03. Too Young To Die
04. Beautiful Life
05. Church Of Rock
06. Like A Game
07. This Generation
08. Lost Inside A Dream
09. Your Photograph
10. September 8
 
With this announcement, MRR and Michael Jessen are pleased to present the lead track from the album, ‘Coming Home Tonight’.
 
 
Bio:
The first band Michael joined was at the public evening youth club and was called “McTampacs”. It included bass player Christoffer Hoås, guitarist Daniel Beck, and not very long after the beginning, drummer Mads Grunnet. The band played a great deal of school contests and small-town markets, but after a few years Michael left the band as it was taking a more “laid back easy rock direction”.
 
All his former bands played guitar-oriented rock music and Michael started to compose more and more music. Some of his songs fitted his current bands and some were recorded with other artists.
 
In 2002 he teamed up with Christoffer Hoås and Mads Grunnet from the old band, and found
vocalist Michael Witus to form a band. The first band name was “High Octane” and only 6 months after the band’s debut, they recorded a 4-tack demo in a professional studio with songs by Michael Jessen.
 
The band continued for 10 years with shows, festivals gigs and another demo recording, but without getting the big attention. In 2012, lead singer Michael Witus quit the band, and in the aftermath, Michael got Christoffer and Mads involved with the new solo project.
 
Michael wanted to try out his talent as a solo artist. He got in contact with one of his vocals heroes,
Mr Göran Edman (ex- Yngwie Malmsteen singer) who agreed to do the vocals for an EP.
Michael then approached former band members Mads Grunnet and Christoffer Hoås to join him on drums and bass. The album was recorded through 2013, and also features Morten Dybro on piano, and a guest appearance by Michael’s childhood guitar hero John Norum (Europe).
 
The album titled ‘Memories’, was released wordwide by Massacre Records in December 2014.
It was very well received by critics all around the world.
 
In 2017-2018 Michael again teamed up with Göran Edman, Christoffer Hoås and Mads Grunnet.
Signed a new record deal with MelodicRock Records, and 10 new songs were rehearsed and recorded at CB studios, DK, by Christian Bonde Sørensen.
 
MelodicRock Records will release MICHAEL JESSEN ‘Bulletproof’ WORLDWIDE ON March 15.
 
Pre-orders available Friday.

MECCA 'The Demos' (2CD Set)($15 Sale - Incl. Shipping Worldwide)
 
 
 
The name MECCA is synonymous with quality AOR and melodic rock. Each of the 3 albums released to date have been crafted over several years, with each song racking up a seriously impressive number of demos, alternative versions, re-writes and re-mixes before being labelled “done”.
 
So, while we wait for a new set of songs to go through that lengthy process, Joe Vana has given MelodicRock Records the green light to delve back into the many folders of Mecca music that has built up since the 2002 debut, to bring you a very cool limited edition release –
 
MECCA “The Demos”
 
But these aren’t any old demos; these are still of the highest quality and represent a rare insight into the recording process all artists go through.

Daniel Trigger is an experienced singer/songwriter from the Midlands, UK who classifies his music as ‘stadium rock’, written to sound at home in an arena, combining big hooks and powerful melodies with anthemic, wide-screen choruses.
And that is the perfect description for Daniel and this album. Seldom will you hear so many hook-driven melodic rockers in one place and while Daniel has an established fan base already, this album is set to reach a whole new fanbase and take his reputation to the next level.
 
With 3 heavy rock albums under his belt, Daniel made the decision in 2017 to return to his melodic roots. The album ‘Right Turn’, steps away from down-tuned heavy rock in favour of greater musical subtleties, infectious melodies and lyrical optimism, and provides the opportunity for Daniel to make more use of instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano.
 
Let’s take a listen, with two tracks from ‘Right Turn’ to check out right now:

01. Penitence 04:30

DANIEL TRIGGER Joins MRR With A 'Right Turn' Aug 10

Friday, August 10, 2018
Categories: 
 
At the heart of the melodic rock scene is a large number of independent artists, who make music for the love of it, contributing some very fine music but not always getting the attention they deserve.
 
On August 10, MelodicRock Records will release two great new melodic rock albums from artists that have previously been self-released independents. These guys deserve your attention and I hope everyone will take the time to listen and perhaps pre-order either one, or both of these releases.
 
We will announce next week, with pre-orders, a special discount deal when buying both.
 
Today it is the great pleasure of MRR to announce the second of these artists – DANIEL TRIGGER.
 
MRR will release DANIEL TRIGGER’s new album ‘Right Turn’ on August 10.
 
Daniel Trigger is an experienced singer/songwriter from the Midlands, UK who classifies his music as ‘stadium rock’, written to sound at home in an arena, combining big hooks and powerful melodies with anthemic, wide-screen choruses.
And that is the perfect description for Daniel and this album. Seldom will you hear so many hook-driven melodic rockers in one place and while Daniel has an established fan base already, this album is set to reach a whole new fanbase and take his reputation to the next level.
 
With 3 heavy rock albums under his belt, Daniel made the decision in 2017 to return to his melodic roots. The album ‘Right Turn’, steps away from down-tuned heavy rock in favour of greater musical subtleties, infectious melodies and lyrical optimism, and provides the opportunity for Daniel to make more use of instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano.
 
Let’s take a listen, with two tracks from ‘Right Turn’ to check out right now:
 
 
 
Track Listing:
01. Penitence 04:30
02. Days Gone By 04:11
03. Drive 05:21
04. Running Into The Wind 03:32
05. Hold Back The Night 05:19

07. Alive 04:38
08. There In Your Heart 04:02
09. Rock N Roll Party 04:11
10. Wheels In Motion 04:02
 
Daniel began writing rock music and playing in bands as a direct result of hearing Europe’s ‘The Final Countdown’ during a visit to a laser light show at the London Planetarium in 1989. It was a ‘road to Damascus’ moment, where Daniel immediately knew he wanted to devote his life to making music that sounded ‘like that’, and has remained influenced by the likes of Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, Queen and Def Leppard to this day.
 
As many musicians do, Daniel spent his early years writing and singing with school and local rock bands, before joining metal band ‘Full Tilt’ in 1995, with whom he recorded one album. Daniel later moved on to sing with rock/blues outfit ‘Easy’, before forming his own band ‘Trigger’ in 2003, which performed melodic rock in the style made famous by the stadium bands of the 80’s.
 
‘Trigger’ recorded 4 albums and ran for 8 successful years before reaching a natural conclusion in 2011. From here on, Daniel continued writing and recording under his own name as a solo artist, and recorded 3 albums, ‘Infinite Persistence’ (2012), the critically-acclaimed ‘Army Of One’ (2014), and ‘Time Of The Titans (2017) which received glowing reviews from the worldwide music press. All 3 of these solo albums fell into the category of ‘melodic yet heavy rock’, combining powerful down-tuned guitar riffs with soaring vocals - imagine crossing Bon Jovi with Alter Bridge, and that will give you the idea.
 
It was with the release of ‘Time Of The Titans’ in 2017 that Daniel began donating all proceeds from purchases of his music to charity, supporting worthy causes such as Marie Curie Cancer Care, Dementia UK and the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign.
 
With 3 heavy rock albums under his belt, Daniel made the decision in 2017 to return to his melodic roots. The album ‘Right Turn’, steps away from down-tuned heavy rock in favour of greater musical subtleties, infectious melodies and lyrical optimism, and provides the opportunity for Daniel to make more use of instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano.
