With so much amazing new music being released it is hard to keep up with who did what with the iconic and legendary bands, let alone newer bands that are trying to get noticed. Each week Brian and I will give you a sample of new releases that we think you'll like, so give a read, click on a link and let's discover some new music together!!!!
FM - ATOMIC GENERATION (Frontiers Music) - If you like your music loose and fun with a lot of harmony then the latest album from FM is right up your alley. ATOMIC GENERATION is their 11th release and features the the amazing vocals of Steve Overland who I have been a fan of since his days fronting the band, Wildlife. ATOMIC GENERATION will appeal to fans of Bad Company (especially the Brian Howe era), old Whitesnake and Bryan Adams; melodic rock with a bit of a nod to the old school.
ATOMIC GENERATION will be out March 30th, 2018
Make The Best Of What You Got - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRZ92YlY_9E
Sainted Sinners - BACK WITH A VENGEANCE (El Puerto Records) - Vocalist David Reece released one album as a member of Accept back in 1989 and spent some times with Bonfire, but now he is the lead singer of Sainted Sinners. On this, their second album, the band continues to give us straight ahead rock n roll with a lot of attitude and some surprises. At face value they are much like KISS, Faster Pussycat or AC/DC, but all of a sudden they turn into Deep Purple or my magic word.... UFO!!!!
BACK WITH A VENGEANCE is available now!!!

Little Caesar - EIGHT (Golden Robot) - Back in the day, Little Caesar were the band that only looked tough, but really were tough!!! Their image never quite meshed with their music that was quite smooth and very bluesy. Now on their eighth album, EIGHT, Little Caesar haven't changed at all... just more confident in their music. As a fan of 1970's British punk, Bon Scott AC/DC and 1970's Aerosmith, this album was made for me! I don't know how vocalist Ron Young did it... but his voice is better than ever! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
EIGHT will be released on March 16, 2018
Nobody Said It Would Be Easy - www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXZ_szV1NN8&list=RDMXZ_szV1NN8&t=3
W.E.T. - EARTHRAGE (Frontiers Music) - Another amazing 'Supergroup' from Frontiers!!! W.E.T. is an album full of the music I love; heavy riffs, melodic harmonies, soaring vocals and perfectly placed keyboards. EARTHRAGE is eleven epic songs that not only showcase the talent in the band, but their ability to write and record as a perfect unit, something not always the case in 'supergroups'. For those music fans that like their music like me... Europe, House Of Lords, Rainbow and ASIA, this album is perfect for you. Believe it or not, there isn't a bad song on the album. Oh..... and Jeff Scott Soto!!!! An early contender for my Album Of The Year!
EARTHRAGE will be released March 23. 2018
