Toto – Live At Montreux 1991


Toto haben während ihrer langen Karriere viele Bandmitglieder willkommen geheißen, aber in den frühen 90er Jahren gab es ein kurzes Zeitfenster, in dem sie – wie viele sagen – eine ihrer besten Besetzungen mit den Musikern Steve Lukather (Gitarre & Gesang), David Paich (Keyboard & Gesang), Jeff Porcaro (Drums) und Mike Porcaro (Bass) hatten. Mit diesem Lineup, angereichert mit einigen Live-Musikern, spielten sie das nun vorliegende Konzert im Juli 1991 auf dem Montreux Festival. Die Montreux-Show wird nun zum ersten Mal überhaupt veröffentlicht und bietet einen Mix aus Songs vom 1992er Album „Kingdom Of Desire“, sowie viele Klassiker und Coversongs z.B. von Jimi Hendrix und Sly Stone. Das Konzert wird als DVD, Blu-ray und Audio-CD veröffentlicht und enthält insgesamt acht Tracks, die kein Toto Fan missen sollte.

Not Above Evil is a three-piece technical-melodic death metal band hailing from Manchester, UK.



Not Above Evil was formed in late 2009 by Sideeq, Daniel and David with the intention of developing a unique brand of metal driven by brutality and technical precision. Over the last few years the band has self-released two EP’s Not Above Evil (2009) and Psychosis Rage and Rapture: The Journey Down (2013) as well as two full length albums Deification (2010) and The Transcendental Signified (2011). Critics have described their material as ‘well written’ and ‘played with confidence, self-assured, devilish pace and a crushing appetite for precision’. With their newest release, Always Darkest Before (Release date: 30th of September 2016), Not Above Evil aims to further their reputation for being able to meld heavy, technical riffs with intricate guitar melodies and over the top, death-metal vocals.

The Athens, Georgia-based melodic metal band THEOCRACY will release their new album „Ghost Ship“ on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records. Information on different editions and formats will be announced soon.

With Ghost Ship, Theocracy perfects the lively and fully-realized sound of As the World Bleeds, delivering 10 muscular and streamlined tracks that never lose focus and combine for one memorable journey. You like midtempo singalong anthems? Try the “Ghost Ship” title track. Thrashy rhythms and intensity?  “The Wonder of It All” should be to your liking. Emotional ballads with huge melodic hooks? Go “Around the World and Back.”  Or if you prefer epic, progressive tracks that do all these things and more, 10-minute album closer “Easter” is sure to be a favorite. Each song on Ghost Ship stands alone and has a unique signature, but every moment sounds unmistakably like Theocracy.

“So many kids were coming up to us after shows and telling us their stories,” says Theocracy vocalist Matt Smith. “A lot of them were searching for purpose and a place to fit in, and having grown up as an awkward and unpopular kid myself, their words really stuck with me. I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were:  fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through—the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world—end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and ‘Castaway.’”

„Ghost Ship“ track listing: 01. Paper Tiger; 02. Ghost Ship, 03. The Wonder Of It All, 04. Wishing Well, 05. Around the World and Back, 06. Stir the Embers, 07. A Call To Arms, 08. Currency In A Bankrupt World, 09. Castaway, 10. Easter

Product: Bulletrain – What You Fear The Most

Release date: 23.09.2016

Label: AOR Heaven

PR: Europe (without Sweden)



 Crafted through restlessness and wishes for something bigger, the great escape from everyday life began almost exactly ten years ago. The band expanded its fan base by playing along with bands such as Crashdïet, Bullet and Crazy Lixx, as a part of the new wave of Swedish Sleaze. Bulletrain stuck out as a heavier band than its competitors, with influences like Black Sabbath, Skid Row and Pantera.

After various line-up changes and the release of two EP’s and one digital single, AOR Heaven’s CEO Georg Siegl signed the Swedes for his label – the album “Start Talking” finally was released in 2014. Their music got great reviews all around Europe and the band played in Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands and Belgium together with bands like Epica, Warrior Soul, Hardcore Superstar and mega drummer Mike Terrana getting an overwhelming and great response as a live act.

With their hearts in the songwriting the band felt during the summer of 2015 it was time to start working on their second album and strike while the iron was hot. In November 2015 Bulletrain flew to Riga in Latvia and started recording the music for the ten songs on the album in the great “Sound Division Studios”. Ten days of hard work, high hopes and hangovers was spent in Riga. Then the band flew back to Stockholm, Sweden and headed to RamPacs studio “Ramtitam”(CrashDïet, Mick Mars, Swingfly) to record the vocals. And another intense process that lasted for another ten days was on the roll.

The fall of 2016 is soon here and Bulletrain is ready to bring you a surprise in the dark and show you “What you fear the most”. A ten track CD filled with heavy guitars, high pitched vocals and badass sing-a-long choruses. The album is mixed by the Grammy Award winning producer Tobias Lindell,  the mind behind the music from bands like Hardcore Superstar, Europe and H.e.a.t to name a few. A collaboration that took Bulletrain’s music to another level and also introduced the band to the world famous mastering engineer Vlado Meller (SlipKnot, Metallica, Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd).

Line-up: Sebastian Sundberg, Lead Vocals, Piano; Robin Bengtsson, Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals; Mattias Persson, Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals; Jonas Tillheden, Drums & Percussion; Niklas Månsson, Bass guitar, Backing Vocals

Almah – artwork & tracklist revealed; 5th studio album E.V.O will be released on September 23rd, 2016!

Brazilian metallers ALMAH led by ex-Angra singer Edu Falaschi are proud to announce that the brand new album entitled E.V.O will be released on September 23th worldwide via Pride & Joy Music (EU), Test Your Metal (US/MX/CA) and King Records (Japan).


 E.V.O is the 5th studio album of ALMAH, it was recorded in São Paulo, Brazil at IMF studios by Tito Falaschi and mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud (Fear Factory, Dragonforce, Baby Metal, etc) at Mix Unlimited in Los Angeles, California/USA. It is a concept album and the main idea is based on evolution of people’s mind and soul during so-called AGE OF AQUARIUS – the new era that the world is about to live. The author of the concept, Edu Falaschi, touches different subjects connected to the main idea, creating very positive lyrics and the whole album’s atmosphere.

Musically E.V.O brings a fresh and powerful sound with typical modern and heavy Almah’s touch but this time one will be able to realize that it also has a direct connection with the ANGRA’s “Rebirth” (the first Angra’s album with Edu’s voice). The compositions are pleasant travel between the modern power metal, contemporary rock and prog metal. The vocal lines on E.V.O are very powerful, classic and the voice has a higher pitch comparing to the previous Almah’s records. It’s very melodic, clean and into the bel canto style.

Track list












Almah is: Edu Falaschi – vocals, Marcelo Barbosa – guitars, Raphael Dafras – bass, Diogo Mafra – guitars, Pedro Tinello – drums

Am 14. September 2002 enterten Deep Purple die Bühne des NEC in Birmingham und spielten eines der emotionalsten Konzerte ihrer langen Karriere. Im Vorfeld hatte  Gründungsmitglied Jon Lord seinen Ausstieg aus der Band angekündigt, und der neue Keyboarder Don Airey spielte sein Debüt. Diese Show im NEC war gleichzeitig die ehrenvolle Verabschiedung von Jon Lord. Don Airley war der Haupt-Keyboarder während der gesamten Show, aber am Ende des Keyboard-Solos wurde das Licht gedämmt und Jon Lord erschien für eine fantastische Version von „Perfect Strangers“ auf der Bühne. Die beiden Musiker wechselten sich für den Rest des Konzertes ab und beide – die Band und die Fans – boten dem großartigen Lord einen gebührenden Abschied.
