Like their countrymen Entombed, In Flames add the familiar influence (and sense of groove) of classic heavy metal to their extreme death metal sounds, as well as progressive instrumental interludes that help lend a feel of epic drama to their music. Colony's arrangements experiment with sound effects, melodic guitar leads, varied textures, and Hammond organ, adding more detail, contrast, and dramatic structure to the rush of their onslaught and making it a definite step forward for the group.

lt's hard to believe that "Whiskey Woman" LP was never released on CD! This excellent debut album by the American band was issued in early 1972 on RCA Victor label and is best described as blues-based, very energetic hard-rock inspired by Led Zeppelin, Free & Humble Pie - with catchy, but heavy guitar riffs, solid rhythm section and great vocals. It's worth noting that all tracks were recorded completely live - with a small, invited audience. Unfortunately, the album went almost completely unnoticed, although the band got at least a chance to record their second (and equally good) vinyl. This CD was carefully remastered from the original, analogue source and will surely appeal to the most fans of raw and spontaneous heavy rock!

The year was 1947: World War II was over and there was music in the air, with Frank Sinatra making teenagers swoon. On other airways, primarily black radio stations, another, earthier music was being played which would become the foundation for what is now called rock & roll. Back then it was called the blues and rhythm & blues, and its voices had names like Wynonie Harris, Willie Dixon, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Among its musicians were Big Bill Broonzy, Hosea Sapp, and Thunder Smith. This CD is part of a series that chronicles the history of this music that was to have such an impact on rock & roll. This volume collects some of the great hits of 1947, when many baby boomers were born, who would go on to become the major supporters of the idiom…

"Anti-Matter Poetry" may not be a creation that will inspire those in search of the new Yes or Genesis, but if you appreciate an artist using and utilizing modern stylistic details and taking cues from the current scene and applying them in an art rock setting this effort from German one man band T should be right up your alley. A fine and at times breathtaking album within this specific musical universe.

Big Joe Williams may have been the most cantankerous human being who ever walked the earth with guitar in hand. At the same time, he was an incredible blues musician: a gifted songwriter, a powerhouse vocalist, and an exceptionally idiosyncratic guitarist. Despite his deserved reputation as a fighter (documented in Michael Bloomfield's bizarre booklet Me and Big Joe), artists who knew him well treated him as a respected elder statesman. Even so, they may not have chosen to play with him, because - as with other older Delta artists - if you played with him you played by his rules…

A legend of Brazilian guitar, emerging on the cusp of the bossa nova boom of the 1960s. Baden Powell is a Brazilian musician with a solid international reputation. A gifted instrumentalist and composer, he bridges the gap between classical artistry and popular warmth and was a key figure in the bossa nova movement.

The sole album from this British progressive quartet was released only in Germany (in 1971) on Bellaphon label - home of the other little known UK bands, like Diabolus, Crazy Mabel and Little Big Horn. The sound of Sunday was a superb combination of a quite intensive and powerful Hammond organ-driven parts linked (in the background) with some piano notes, spontaneous electric guitar leads and powerful rhythm section - with more than a trace of blues and psychedelia. It can be compared to the Jody Grind (their member, Pete Gavin, was a drummer here…), Atomic Rooster, early Argent, Procol Harum (at their heaviest) and late 60' s Pink Floyd. This CD edition was carefully remastered from the original, analogue source and sounds really great!

The perfect distillation of the classic Teutonic Electronic sound. The tracks begin with waves of synthetics unfolding, sequencer slowly filtering into the mix, and then long, undulating multi-layers of synthetic sound mutating from one cosmic, symphonic theme into the next. A cerebral listening trip extraordinaire.

Eighteen albums into nearly a four-decade career finds blues-rocking guitar slinger Tinsley Ellis still growing as a recording artist, singer, and songwriter. In 2018 he returned home to Alligator Records after delivering four albums on his own Heartfixer label. The chart-topping set was met with Blues Music Association nominations for album of the year and artist of the year. Ice Cream in Hell was recorded in Nashville and co-produced by Ellis and longtime co producer/keyboardist Kevin McKendree. Its 11 originals were consciously inspired the examples of the three Kings: B.B., Albert, and Freddie, as well as Peter Green, Carlos Santana, and Hound Dog Taylor. This is one of the rawest-sounding records in his career…

Shadow Zone is the third album by the band Static-X, released on October 7, 2003. Marked by many personnel and stylistic changes, the album sports a much more melodic sound than any other work in their catalog, while still staying in the confines of their industrial metal and nu metal sound. It was the only album to feature drummer Josh Freese and the first of two albums to feature guitarist Tripp Eisen.

Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Astral Industries

Multicast Dynamics returns with a sixth studio album but one that marks something of a new chapter. Ancient Circuits is a departure from previous works on Denovali and one that stands the project aside as a powerful electronic act that tells stories while also serving up heavy hitting soundscapes that are persuasive, unexpected and disturbing.
Ancient Circuits is another album with a very real sense of space - it places you in the middle of a sparse yet richly detailed world, with sonic illusions and synthetic realisations from a post-human world. Listening to this album is like being lost deep in the fabric of space itself, where ancient cosmology and modern technology intersect…

On the 5th and 6th of November 2010, a special event took place in Rome, Italy. For the first time in the history of progressive rock music, some of the best Italian bands performed during the first edition of Prog Exhibition. A selection of international musicians was invited to guest together with these bands. PFM had flautist Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) on stage and Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso had asked singer-bassist John Wetton (ex- U.K, ex- King Crimson). Aldo Tagliapietra, Tony Pagliuca and Tolo Marton, former members of Le Orme, were joined by violinist David Cross (ex- King Crimson). Keyboardist Gianni Leone (Balletto Di Bronzo) played keyboards and David Jackson (ex- Van Der Graaf Generator) saxophone and flute with Osanna. Nuova Raccomandata Ricevuta Di Ritorno played together with flautist Thijs van Leer (Focus)…

Marcia Ball's strong western Louisiana, eastern Texas roots run strongly through So Many Rivers, and she has increased the range she covers. Solid in the foundation of her piano playing and phrasing, she is rooted rock-solid to the rhythms by the drumming of Tom Fillman and the bass of both Don Bennett and Yoggie Musgrove. There is also the production work of Stephen Bruton, who also added his otherworldly guitar work to the mix. Marcia Ball's voice has only gotten finer with the passage of time, and the collaborations with Irma Thomas and Tracy Nelson have also added a lot of potency to her voice and handling of a song. She has assembled a crack group of musicians here that gives her freedom to take those chances that make So Many Rivers stand out from the crowd…
