ARTI TISI Release 3 Anthology Discs Via MRR April 19

Artist: 
ALL SOUNDBYTES ADDED!
 
PRE-ORDERS ON SCHEDULE TO SHIP BY APRIL 19.
LAST CHANCE TO PREORDER AND RECIEVE ADDIONAL BONUS TRACKS (Which will be emailed to all preorders this week).
 

Its finally time to announce the full details of the legendary ARTI TISI Archives!

We started with 55 tracks and took out a couple of duplicate alternative mixes and a few tracks that didn’t quite sonically match the quality of the main body of tracks. What is left is no less than 47 astonishing tracks that upon play back sound like a greatest hits album from the 80s. Except of course, none of these tracks have ever been released before!
 
Together with Arti Tisi, we’ve arranged the tracks into 3 separate discs that represent their own character and different eras in Arti’s recording career.
 
Disc One is ‘New York City’ – some of Arti Tisi’s best anthems and commercial melodic rockers alongside some amazing ballads.
 
Disc Two is ‘Back Again’ – a compilation of the harder edge of Arti Tisi’s songs, packing a hard rock punch not unlike Dokken, Hurricane, Lynch Mob or Shark Island.
 
Disc Three is ‘The Reeperbahn’ – Arti Tisi’s evolution as a songwriter and performer. This showcases a more diverse and eclectic side of Arti’s writing and vocal performances. There’s some bluesier numbers, a couple of modern rockers, a couple of fun numbers and once again, a couple of very fine ballads with a twist.
 

 
Overall these three discs showcase everything that Arti Tisi produced over a number of years in the 80s and 90s. There is no logical reason why these songs weren’t massive radio hits in the day and why Arti Tisi isn’t a megastar.
 
At least now we can finally take it all in and appreciate the sheer brilliance that is Arti Tisi!
 
‘New York City’, ‘Back Again’ and ‘The Reeperbahn’ are all released April 19. Pre-orders will be shipped prior.
 
All 3 CDs are available individually for $15 (+$5 worldwide airmail shipping).
 
BUT – if you pre-order all 3 CDs ($45 and just $5 worldwide airmail shipping), for a limited time, those that order will get a bonus digital download of some of the additional tracks that make up the complete archive.
 
A special thanks must go out to JK Northrup for his efforts in transferring these tunes from very old DATs and original reel to reel quarter inch tapes and then painstakingly remastered the audio so it now sounds just as good as was originally recorded.
 
Now, please enjoy the full length preview tracks – 2 from each album – and pre-order now!
 
ARTI TISI - The Archive Trilogy (All 3 CDs + Bonus Digital Download) $45 + $5 shipping worldwide

MelodicRock Records is thrilled to announce the signing one of the best collections of unreleased music to ever be left aside in the vaults, for a deal that will finally see this classic melodic hard rock material released to fans that have been demanding it for two decades.

Only one artist could possibly gather all these names into their recording career: Joe Lynn Turner, Tony Bruno, Al Pitrelli, Al Greenwood, A.J. Pero, Ian McDonald, Mark Hitt, Lincoln Schleifer, Tony Harnell, Bob Held, Phil Woods, Chuck Bonafante and even more…
 
The man that was once considered to replace Lou Gramm when he left Foreigner, a role he could have pulled off with ease.
 
Who else than ARTI TISI!
 
The Arti Tisi legend goes back many years. To the mid-to-late 80s, into the 90s…. Arti Tisi was one of the finest vocalists and go-to guys in the world. But why isn’t he the mega-star that the material demonstrates he should be?
 
It’s a mixture of bad timing, bad luck and bad record labels. Best that Arti explains himself:
 
I would never change a thing, not a single thing. I am so fortunate to have played with so many talents and I feel they were the reason the music was great and the reason I tried to always push myself to keep up. I think the thing is that a lot of the musicians I played with were trying to make a living in other bands. Talents like Al Pitrelli or Tony Bruno or John O’Reilly, they were so fantastic, so in demand. Denny McDermott who was on with Donald Fagen on drums and Mark Hitt on guitar and was soon off playing with John Entwistle.
 
It was so amazing, I had so many opportunities to record and work with many great producers, engineers, studios and musicians. And the constant team of John Greenberg, Billy Phelan and Billy Cinotti kept us together so that we could experience amazing, amazing times like when the guys from Deep Purple came to see us in Connecticut right after the ‘Perfect Strangers’ album and the next thing I know we are signed to Bruce Payne and Thames Talent! I mean c’mon Deep Purple’s management! That same year we began talking to Michael Wagener hoping to get something together between his producing the first White Lion and Skid Row records, then the amazing Jack Ponti who was another great mentor.
 
But I enjoyed working with Al Greenwood and Dave Greenberg the very most, they were the ‘Team’. Dave was an amazing engineer and Al a fantastic producer. Al, Bobby Held, Al Pitrelli and Tony Bruno would help by co-writing with me and getting me some great songs that they had written with Joe Lynn Turner with his amazing vocals, or Jordan Stanley with some fantastic lyrics, I mean we would just go in and record the songs  and everybody would go off and I would do my vocals with Al and David in the studio all of the backgrounds, and the odd guitar or drum part and what a treat to have Al occasionally play a B3 on some tracks and bam – Dave and Al mixed it in an amazing fashion – always.
 
We would do label showcases but then one guy went out with Doro or Alice Cooper so it was hard to get everybody together for longer than just the recording. I remember one time we did a showcase for Atlantic at like 10 o'clock in the morning!
 
We were playing around New York at the China Club or L’Amour Brooklyn, or L’Amour East or the Cat Club to make money, build our fans, hustling, a publishing deal here or there.
 
Then I had these opportunities like when Lou Gramm left Foreigner, I met with Bud Prager to be considered to replace him but Lou was my idol and his idols were my idols, guys like Steve Marriott and Paul Rodgers and then Terry Reid once Al introduced me to him. When Ray Gillen passed away, John Greenberg arranged for me to go to San Diego and audition with Jake E Lee and Badlands. When I was on the plane to California I popped in the tape of some of the songs to learn and the first song I heard was High Wire with Ray killing it!  I think I was paralytic with the guys (laughs) - Everyone I played with was amazing, all true gentlemen. They were so professional and creative; Complete masters of their craft.
 
No matter what the circumstances at the time or the way these tracks were recorded, the fact is they were and they are magnificent!
 
So fate has held them at bay all these years. At times there has been attempts by other labels to release these songs, to no avail. Arti Tisi’s work was left to be heavily traded via cassette in the 90s and then online in recent years. But no one has the masters. Or the complete picture. Until now.
 
After several months of conversations with MelodicRock Records, Arti Tisi is ready to unleash his collected works upon the world.
 
But what was uncovered is nothing short of spectacular. Going back through the collection of DAT tapes and quarter inch tapes was a vault of songs unprecedented in recent memory.
 
Of the 20 or so expected songs MRR was hoping to work with, we are now up to 53, with the possibility of still more.

All the cult classics will be included – A Little Too Early, I’ll Be There, Love You Too Much, Love Finds You Guilty….and plenty of never before heard songs, including a heartfelt cover of Rick Springfield’s My Father’s Chair. More details will be announced soon.
 
So with this rich vault of classic material to go through, fans can be guaranteed a treasure trove of killer music to add to their collections soon. All remastered by the guiding hand of JK Northrup.
 
Work continues on this right now and an announcement about a release will be made prior to the end of the year, with the aim to have this material officially released in the first quarter of 2017.
 
Classic American melodic rock, hard rock and AOR has never sounded better.

New TNT Album Due In Early 2017

Artist: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl is delighted to welcome TNT to the label for a release of the band’s forthcoming brand new studio album in spring 2017!
 
Earlier in 2016, singer Tony Harnell and guitarist Ronni Le Tekrø started writing new TNT material together for the first time in over 10 years. The music is truly exciting and the new record promises to be a landmark release for the band!
 
Ronni says: "We have made our best album to date, and are excited to work with Frontiers to get it out to our fans!"
Tony adds: "We are looking forward to tour worldwide in 2017/18 and to play in as many places as we can."
 
The band’s lineup is now completed by drummer Diesel Dahl, Ove Husemoen on bass and Roger Gilton on keyboards.
 
TNT have already set a few shows to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their classic album “Tell No Tales”, with more planned after the new album’s release.
 
Confirmed shows include:
12 January – Gjøvik Studenthus, Gjøvik
13 January – Rockfeller, Oslo
14 January - Union Scene, Drammen
20 January - Royal Garden, Trondheim
21 January - Hurtigrutas Hus, Stockmarknes
28 January - Kongesalen, Bergen
2-7 February – Monsters of Rock Cruise, USA
 
TNT was formed in Norway back in 1982, releasing their eponymous debut album the following year. After some changes in the line up, the now classic "Knights Of The New Thunder" was released in the fall of 1984, with a lineup consisting of extremely talented guitar player Ronni Le Tekrø, drummer Diesel Dahl, American singer Tony Harnell, and bass player Morty Black.
 
Throughout the eighties, the band released the melodic hard rock gems "Tell No Tales" and "Intuition", while building a fan base in Europe, America and Japan, where "Intuition" became a massive hit.
 
In the early nineties the band broke up, but TNT returned with a couple more albums later in the decade, before disappearing again. At the turn of the millennium, TNT slowly began to rise once more, and came back full force when "My Religion" was released to rave reviews in 2004. The band then went through several line-up and stylistic changes, but they are now ready to take the hard rock world by storm with their new album.

The Legendary ARTI TISI Archives Are Coming to MelodicRock Records

Artist: 
 
I’ve been chasing this one for a long time…
 
MelodicRock Records is thrilled to announce the signing one of the best collections of unreleased music to ever be left aside in the vaults, for a deal that will finally see this classic melodic hard rock material released to fans that have been demanding it for two decades.

MAGNUS KARLSSON'S FREEFALL - Kingdom Of Rock (Review)

information persons: 
content: 
95%
Produced By: 
Magnus Karlsson
Running Time: 
54
Release Date: 
2015
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Hard Rock / Melodic Metal
Score: 
95
Label: 
Frontiers
 
Swedish guitarist Magnus Karlsson (the man behind Allen/Lande, Starbreaker and more) returns with his second “Freefall” album, featuring another cast of all-star guests and powerhouse melodic metal/hard rock songs.
Following the acclaim of his solo debut, Magnus had a lot to live up to here. In my opinion, he does so with ease, even if this time the emphasis is slightly different than the first opus.
 
Kingdom Of Rock is just as powerful and as perfectly produced and mixed as the debut, but this is a more commercial record with a hard rock heart – even some powerful ‘melodic rock’. The metal edge has definitely been toned down.
Some of that has to do with the guest vocalists involved. All music and lyrics as well as everything but the drums (added by Jaime Salazar), plus all the production is from the hand of Magnus. That’s really quite extraordinary for an album of this caliber.
 
Kingdom Of Rock (Jorn Lande, vocals) is classic Magnus/Allen Lande and the perfect opener. Also my favourite track on the album just for Jorn’s killer vocal and the melodic hook in the chorus.
Out Of The Dark (Jakob Samuel, vocals) is something resembling The Poodles but all metal baby! Jakob’s voice stretches that bit further to hammer out a great hard rock song here.
No Control (Joe Lynn Turner, vocals) is JLT at his best also. The track is essentially a heavy melodic rock track with a great catchy chours.
When The Sky Falls (Tony Martin, vocals) is a slower, moodier and heavier track and Tony sounds brilliant. A nice melodic metal track that has a hint of Dio to it.
 
Angel Of The Night (David Readman, vocals) is another chunky hard rocker, this time with PC69’s David Readman controlling the sound. And as with the other tracks, Magnus let’s David’s personality shine through.
I Am Coming For You is another fairly commercial hard rock track, with Magnus himself on vocals. He really does have a good voice, he could easily carry this project by himself.
Another Life features current Masterplan vocalist Rick Altzi and swiftly manages to sound better than anything off the last Masterplan album.
 
Never Look Away is brilliant. Another fast moving melodic hard rocker, with the brilliant Tony Harnell delivering a Starbreaker friendly track. His voice and Magnus’ sound are just wonderful to hear each time. A great chorus takes it over the top.
A Heart So Cold could be one of the surprise tracks. Harem Scarem’s Harry Hess goes metal for this all-in rocker with a big chorus and even bigger vocals. Harry adapts brilliantly to the heavier sound and rips through this.
The Right Moment (Rebecca De La Motte, vocals) is a big symphonic ballad that could easily be on a Within Temptation or Nightwish album. Love it!
The album closes with Magnus on vocals again. I’m really enjoying the tone of his voice and Walk This Road Alone is a heavy, slightly progressive metal track that takes the album out on a heavy (and classy) note.

 
This is an easy one. If you have any Starbreaker/Allen Lande/MK produced album in your collection, then this is a buy or die release.
If you like melodic metal or hard rock with a heavy but melodic edge and can appreciate some of the best vocalists in the business doing their thing, this also demands buying.
A thoroughly enjoyable album that is consistently strong throughout, despite the use of different vocalists which can sometimes bring a project unhinged. Not on this occasion!

MAGNUS KARLSSON'S FREEFALL Returns With 'Kingdom Of Rock'

 
Swedish axeman MAGNUS KARLSSON is back with the second album of his solo project FREEFALL entitled “Kingdom of Rock”!
Out on Frontiers in November!
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the sophomore album from MAGNUS KARLSSON’S FREEFALL “Kingdom Of Rock” on November 6th.
 
Magnus Karlsson is the mastermind behind several Frontiers Music Srl productions, including the successful initial ALLEN/LANDE trilogy, STARBREAKER, BOB CATLEY, KISKE/SOMERVILLE and several others. In 2008, he joined the German Heavy Metal icons PRIMAL FEAR and with them has toured the world and recorded three successful albums that climbed high on the charts in several countries.
 
For this new album – aptly titled “Kingdom of Rock” - Magnus enlisted again a dream team featuring some of the  strongest melodic singers in metal and hard rock! Magnus says: “I didn’t plan to make a second Free Fall album at first but one album wasn’t enough for my wish list of singers… so after the summer last year I started on some ideas. Without pressure or a deadline… just for fun. So I started to look at the list with singers and thought if can I get these guys on board I will work harder than ever before to make the best album I could. I wanted not only some of the best singers I ever heard, but singers that meant a lot to me and that have given me inspiration. For example: Tony Martin and Joe Lynn Turner… I grew up with their music and that made me the musician I am today. It feels unreal to make music with them now!“
 
The final list includes TONY HARNELL (Skid Row, TNT, Starbreaker), RICK ALTZI (Masterplan, At Vance), DAVID READMAN (Pink Cream 69, Voodoo Circle), JORN LANDE, JAKOB SAMUEL (The Poodles), JOE LYNN TURNER (Rainbow, Malmsteen, Deep Purple), TONY MARTIN (Black Sabbath), HARRY HESS (Harem Scarem) and REBECCA DE LA MOTTE. Rounding out the line-up on the album is Jaime Salazar on drums with production duties handled by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Pretty Maids and more).
 
Magnus says, “There is a lot more work in this album. Normally I don’t throw away good ideas. This time I skipped great ideas and replaced it with something better. I don’t want to do the same thing over and over. I want to do something better. I also had a bigger budget for the production and was able to work in great studios. Jacob Hansen did a fantastic job with the mix and mastering and the sound is just what I always wanted. This is not about having big names on the album, this is simply about making the best music I possibly can for the best singers I know!”
 
The final result “Kingdom of Rock” is a Melodic Metal blast which is truly one of the top releases of its kind in 2015!

SKID ROW - Solinger Departs, TONY HARNELL Announced As New Voice

Artist: 
 
SKID ROW has moved quickly to replace vocalist JOHNNY SOLINGER, who announced his departure from the band earlier today. To counter those innevitable "Sebastian Bach reunion" headlines, the band was quick to surprise everyone with the announcement that former TNT legend TONY HARNELL was to join the band.
 
Apparently the guys have recorded one song already and will work on the third and final part of their EP trilogy before embarking on an extensive tour.
Here's a round up of what everyone has had to say today:
 
Official Press Release:
 
New York, NY - After 14 years of touring and 4 releases, SKID ROW and singer Johnny Solinger have parted ways.
Founding member Snake Sabo said, “We had a lot of great times together and created a lot of great music. We wish him nothing but the best.”
“Sometimes things just end. People go in different directions and grow apart and you have to make a decision. He will always be our brother”
adds co-founder Rachel Bolan.

The vacancy for front man has been filled by powerhouse vocalist Tony Harnell. This news comes hot of the heels of his departure from Oslo based band, TNT.“Tony’s experience, power and undeniable range made our decision an easy one” commented guitarist Scotti Hill. Drummer Rob Hammersmith added, “I believe this will be a great year for SKID ROW. I’m looking forward for things to come.”

​When asked about joining forces with SKID ROW Harnell said, "I'm so excited and honored to be a part of such a great band with an amazing legacy and legions of faithful fans! The guys and I have known each other for many years and this is such a natural fit. I look forward to getting out there and playing live together and being a part of making new music and creating our future. It's time to rock!"

The band will head into the studio to record the third chapter of the United World Rebellion trilogy in early summer. They will also hit the road for another world tour in support.

TNT "Will Go On" Says RONNIE LE TEKRO

Artist: 
 
TNT guitarist Ronni Le Tekrø spoke to Norway Rock Magazine last week for an interview that will be published later this month in Norway.
 
With thanks to the Magazine, I can post this preview of the interview and yes, the question everyone wants to know…
 
NR: So what's happening to TNT these days, after losing two Tony's in two years?
Ronnie:  We won't retire just because a singer quits. People have tried to break the band previously on those terms. But they can't - we'll go on! We are searching for a new singer now, and will hold auditions shortly. I haven't told the press about this yet, you are the first one to know. We'll find a singer who is even better! And also able to reproduce what our previous singers did.
 
NR: What were the reasons for the Tony’s leaving?
Ronnie: Nothing dramatic, Mills had been with us for 8 years and we are still on speaking terms. Harnell leaving, well, that was almost expected. I have no desire to Discover exactly why. Those who want to leave the band may leave the band. We'll continue no matter what.

TONY HARNELL Quits TNT, Band Takes A Rest, But Will Return

Artist: 
 
Singer TONY HARNELL has quit TNT once again, giving fans the following heartfelt messageover the weekend:
 
"Hey friends, 

This was an amazing year for me and for all the TNT fans who were lucky enough to be at the concerts. Many of the shows were the best TNT shows ever in my opinion. 
Sadly it's not possible for me to continue with the band. I won't bore you with all the details...it's nothing mind blowing and it's certainly nothing new and it's also best to respect the privacy of the band and keep our issues between us. At least that's my goal. 
What I can tell you all is that I tried very hard once again to make it work for the long haul. I had really high hopes that it would last this time and that we would continue for years to come but it is a very volatile little machine. It's a really great band with a wonderful catalog of music and I'm proud of all the work we've done and all we've accomplished over the years. I love our crew and appreciate all their hard work and dedication. I wish the other guys in the band well in life and in all their future endeavors. 
To the wonderful TNT fans...I know you feel deep disappointment right now and truly, so do I...more than you could ever know. My heart is broken, again, but I have no regrets about the past year and I'm really happy I could have such a wonderful final tour with the band for you guys. To all those who's cities we didn't reach, I apologize. It wasn't for lack of desire on my part to get to you this time. 
Onward and upward! Love you all! TH
P.S. This is my statement, I won't elaborate..."
 
As for the band themselves, they have responded with an update of their own:
 
"Happy new year everybody! We hereby want to thank you, and everybody on & off stage for a great 2014 - celebrating 25 anniversary of the Intuition album and releasing the Anniversary album with Trondheim Symphony Orchestra.
Despite a great 2014 here was never any firm plans for TNT in 2015. The band & crew have worked hard since The Big Bang release in 2003. More than 10 years - actually longer than the first period in the the 80s!
TNT have always suffered challenging logistics. We envy band & crew who live in the same city  Traveling and being away from home can be hard for everybody. Especially for those who have to travel the longest and be the longest time away from their dear ones.
The only firm 2015 plans so far is that Ronni will continue promoting his recent solo album and will be gigging with Rypdal/Tekrø. Diesel will be doing some gigs with Tindrum featuring Kee Marcello.
The TNT heart have NOT stopped beating."
Concider it possible that TNT will rise again - sooner or later - in one way or another form.
The band are open for suggestions and comments - and for sure we will be in touch with YOU !
