UK rockers FURYON release their second album, ‘Lost Salvation,’

March 16th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

UK rockers FURYON release their second album, ‘Lost Salvation,’ via Dream Records in UK/EUROPE.

What is to be expected is more explosive guitar riffs and solos in well-crafted song form, plus expressive vocal delivery and melodies to scream along to.
A possibly darker album, but still with progressive elements and a grungy edge.

US/CANADA/JAPAN release dates to follow.

‘Lost Salvation’ was recorded in Atlanta, US, and Brighton, UK, and mixed and produced by Rick Beato (Shinedown, Fozzy) & Ken ëGLí Lanyon.
The album artwork was designed by Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwave Art & Design (Textures, Pentagram, Bloodbath, etc.).

Confirmed ‘Lost Salvation’ track listing:

01. All That I Have
02. Lost Salvation
03. These Four Walls (official video)
04. Scapegoat
05. Resurrect Me
06. Left It With The Gods
07. Good Sky
08. Dematerialize
09. What You Need
10. Wiseman

Singer Matt Mitchell also explained the stories behind several of the album’s standout tracks:

‘These Four Walls’ (first single)

“A view from ones mind. An almost trapped inside feeling. A view looking out from the room within where life long stories are written on the walls. ”

‘All That I Have’

“A tale of a person who has been living in a destructive relationship. Knowing they should leave but not wanting to. Eventually taking the plunge an leaving but sacrificing everything but a few personal items.”

‘Scapegoat’

“A song with a look at life beyond the life we know. Feeling there is more to life and the possibilities of afterlife. Having faith and or spiritual view. Also society’s blind faith.”

‘Lost Salvation’

“Relationship between a band and the music business and also the relationships between one another within the band of people, forging their way through these corridors.
Feeling they may have lost their hope and given their all, but still holding on with that glimmer of love.”

First reviews:

Furyon have come along way since ‘Gravitas,’ ‘Lost Salvation’ is not only remarkable, it’s herculean! I hope ‘Lost Salvation’ sees the band reach the zenith they so richly deserve! Score: 9.5/10 (The Metal Gods Meltdown)

Is all killer & no filler. This is already a contender for album of the year. If this record isn’t the making of FURYON then there is some sort of conspiracy theory in place. I heartily recommend seeing this band live. Ratings 9/10 (My Global Mind)

Verdict time now and I had a feeling that I would enjoy this new album from FURYON and my feeling was right as itís just as good as their amazing debut if not better! Highly recommended if you like Hard Rock and Melodic Heavy Metal music. Almost perfect: 9/10 (Metal Temple)

This new track is a monstrous modern melodic heavy rock stuff that features a massive riffing and Matt Mitchell’s superb vocal performances. For sure, this is a great appetizer of whatís to expect from FURYON’s brand new work. Well done. Rating : 8,5/10 (Heavy Paradise)

FURYON are:

Matt Mitchell – Vocals
Alex ‘Nickel’ Bowen – Bass
Lee Farmery – Drums
Luca Faraone – Guitars
Tiago Rosado – Guitars

FURYON have confirmed dates for a UK headlining tour in March 2015, in support of their second album release ‘Lost Salvation‘.

The dates are as follows:

March 20 – The Square, Harlow, UK
March 22 – The Concorde 2, Brighton, UK
March 24 – The Audio, Glasgow, UK
March 29 – The Barfly, London, UK
March 30 – Bannerman’s Live, Edinburgh, UK

Legendary SCORPIONS Drummer Herman Rarebell Releases New CD

March 16th, 2015
by Celtic Bob

Herman Rarebell cover

Herman Rarebell returns with a project that will surprise not only longtime Scorpions fans.
The former Scorpions drummer’s long awaited new album ‘Herman’s Scorpions Songs’ features some of the world’s best rock singers (Bobby Kimball, Tony Martin, Don Dokken, Doogie White and many more), doing their own versions of 13 worldwide Scorpions hits.

All of them are all-time favorites that have been written or at least co-written by Herman. “Rock You Like A Hurricane”, “Dynamite”, “Make It Real” or “Animal Magnetism” – all in exciting new rock versions.

With the brand new single “Let It Shine” Rarebell has added a wonderful new radio ballad to the 13 Scorpions diamonds. The song is sung by Al Crespo, lead singer of the German newcomer band “Unbreakable”. Herman regarding his collaboration with the young band: “If we want to hear good music ten years from now, we have to start now to develop and support new promising talents. It is a fact that bands like the Scorpions, Motörhead or Deep Purple will then be gone. Therefore I am happy to be able to give all my knowledge and experience to Al and his band. These guys have everything to become the new Scorpions”.

Furthermore Herman sees the song “Let It Shine” as a legitimate follow-up single to “Wind Of Change”. 25 years ago, when the Berlin wall came down the world was set for peace and reconciliation; today things are going in the wrong direction again. We desperately need more light in this world, so “Let It Shine”!

Thirteen classic Scorpions songs, in a new interpretation by Herman Rarebell and his friends, plus one brand new song – this album belongs into the collection of every Scorpions fan!.

Tracklist:

1. Rock You Like A Hurricane – Bobby Kimball (Toto)
2. Passion Rules The Game – John Parr
3. Loving You Sunday Morning – Michael Voss (Mad Max)
4. Is There Anybody There – Alex Ligertwood (Santana)
5. You Give Me All I Need – Don Dokken
6. Make It Real – Doogie White (Rainbow)
7. Dynamite – Johnny Gioeli (Axel Rudi Pell)
8. Arizona – Thomas Perry
9. Love Is Blind – Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot)
10. Don´t Make No Promises – Jack Russell (Great White)
11. Falling In Love – Gary Barden (Michael Schenker Group)
12. Another Piece Of Meat – Tony Martin (Black Sabbath)
13. Animal Magnetism – Michael Nagy
14. Let It Shine – Al Crespo (Unbreakable)

CAIN’S OFFERING - STORMCROW

CAIN’S OFFERING – STORMCROW

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the second CAIN’S OFFERING studio album entitled “Stormcrow” on May 15th in Europe and May 19th in North America.

Cain’s Offering is the brainchild of Finnish guitarist/songwriter Jani Liimatainen, founding member of one of Finland’s biggest musical exports, Sonata Arctica.

Drawing its musical influence from both the classic Hard Rock scene, fast-paced European Power Metal and a very modern Heavy Metal sound, CAIN’S OFFERING is, just as expected, another perfect example of today’s incredible Finnish music scene. Read the rest of this entry »
