With the release of “Ambition Rocks“, their first album in 25 years, and with a new lineup, AOR & Classic Rock band Da Vinci returns with brand new songs.

The group was formed in Norway back in 1986, and after a short round with demos, the band got a record deal with Polygram Norway and released their debut album the following year.

Looking back on the Norwegian melodic rock of the 80’s, one of the bands to leave a major impression were undoubtedly Oslo’s Da Vinci. Enjoying as much radio play and charting nationally in the same league as Return, Stage Dolls and TNT, Da Vinci released two albums, ”Da Vinci” and ”Back in the Business” and a single in 91 “Ain’t No Goodbyes/ Blame it on the radio”.

Their greatest hits were “Forever in My Heart” and “Tarquinia” from the first album; and “Call Me a Liar” and “9&10” from “Back in Business”. DaVinci was touring constantly from late 86 to 92 and did over 600 performances in Norway. They also played as support for Status Quo on their Christmas Remedy tour in 1989 in Great Britain together with Ole Evenrude. The last concerts were two gigs at Wembley Arena. They split up in 93, but Selboskar, Westlie and Aass continued to write songs together for a few years. Some of these demo songs were illegally released in Europe.

Jarle Måløy moved to the north of Norway. Bjørn Boge started Street Legal together with Bjørn Olav Lauvdal and Selboskar was in the band on keys several years. Gunnar Westlie formed his own band called Tjugods and Lars Aass started working as a songwriter at Waterfall Productions. In 2004 Selboskar and Westlie started to write AOR songs together again and formed Eidsivating with the drummer from Son of Angels, Geir Digernes, and after some years with a lot of songs and different members, this project ended up in today’s Da Vinci.

“Ambition Rocks” was produced by Sverre E Henriksen and DaVinci; drums recorded in Oslo at Klang Studios with Johnny Skalleberg. The album was mixed by Sverre E Henriksen in hangar 7 and mastered by Nick Terry. Artwork & videos by Dag Selboskar.

LIONHEART was formed in late 1980 by Dennis Stratton (lead guitar/backing vocals, ex-Iron Maiden), Jess Cox (lead vocals, ex-Tygers of Pan Tang), Steve Mann (lead guitar/backing vocals, ex-Liar), Rocky Newton (bass guitar/backing vocals, ex-Wildfire) and Frank Noon (drums, ex-Def Leppard). The band began playing gigs including regular shows at London’s Marquee Club but had problems maintaining a consistent line-up. The core personnel of Dennis, Steve and Rocky remained but various singers passed through the band including Rueben Archer, John Farlham and Bob Hawthorn. They eventually settled as a 4-piece with Dennis and Rocky sharing lead vocal duties. The drummer’s stool was variously occupied by Les Binks (ex Judas Priest), Niko McBrain (ex Trust and subsequently Iron Maiden) and Clive Edwards (ex Wild Horses).

Between 1981 and 1984 LIONHEART played regular live shows and filled the support slot for tours by both Def Leppard and Whitesnake. In between gigs they spent many hours writing and recording demos of new songs while searching for a record deal. It wasn’t until 1984 that CBS Records in the USA offered them a contract, by which time they had recruited Chad Brown on lead vocals. They flew over to Los Angeles in March 1984 to record their debut album Hot Tonight with Kevin Beamish in the production chair and session man Bob Jenkins, who had previously worked with Leo Sayer and Kiki Dee, on drums. The album was recorded at the legendary Sound City Studios in Van Nuys and mixed at Kendun Recorders.

Upon their return to the England LIONHEART recorded a high-budget video for the single Die For Love. The late comic genius Rik Mayall played the part of the mad professor, which in later years achieved cult status on YouTube due in part to the wonderfully wooden acting of the band! Unfortunately, planned UK tours as support to Kansas and Foreigner were cancelled at the last moment. Promotion of the album suffered and LIONHEART found themselves in limbo. Chad Brown left the band in 1985 to be replaced by Keith Murrell, with Toby Sadler coming in on keyboards. More demos were recorded with the new line-up but unfortunately the momentum had been lost and the band eventually broke up. Rocky went on to record backing vocals on 2 Def Leppard albums and join Michael Schenker with Steve, while Dennis spent 15 years with Praying Mantis.

In 2016 Dave Herron, promoter of the Rockingham Festival in Nottingham, asked LIONHEART to reunite for one performance and all original members, apart from Chad Brown, did so. The reunion created quite a stir, not least within the band itself, and it was decided to carry on with the subsequent recording of a new album followed by an acclaimed appearance at Sweden Rock.

The new record, Second Nature, was created between November 2016 and May 2017 and was produced, engineered and mastered by Steve Mann in his own studio in Hannover. A mini tour of Japan with Praying Mantis was scheduled for June/July with further UK shows with Airrace in November/December. The album release on AOR Heaven throughout Europe is set for 25th August.

Band: Lee Small (lead vocals), Dennis Stratton (lead guitar / backing vocals), Steve Mann (lead guitar / backing vocals), Rocky Newton (bass guitar / backing vocals), Clive Edwards (drums)

Bad Reputation veröffentlichen Chris Brockbank’s Phantom – „Phantom“!

Liebe Medienpartner,

bereits am 07.06.2017 veröffentlicht das französische Label Bad Reputation (Vertrieb: Cargo) das neue Album des australischen Gitarristen/Songwriters Chris Brockbank namens „Phantom“.

Wir betreuen nehmen Presseanfragen aus Deutschland und Österreich gerne entgegen!

PRESSETEXT:

phantom-cover-web

If you like original, heavy Aussie rock along the lines of Deep Purple, Dio, Whitesnake, Rainbow you don’t want to miss Phantom MkV. Their last couple of gigs received rave reviews in Sydney’s live music media.Guitarist/composer Chris Brockbank has been in the music industry for many years and has been compared to guitarist Richie Blackmore. His latest project Phantom MkV features Chris’ long-time keyboardist Jeff Morris, vocalist Steve Mulry (Tribute to Ted Mulry Gang & ex-Black Label), drummer Mick O’Shea (Swanee, Judge Mercy) and bassist Damian McDonald (Daddy Frisco).

Music composition, performance and recording has always been where Brockbank’s passions are though. Phantom has constantly been a band name always associated with Chris Brockbank. Inspired by both the sound engineering term phantom power, and the phantoms, or wraiths in Tolkien’s world, Phantom’s music has always been technically adept, and ethereal at the same time. This current project is the fifth cycle of Chris Brockbank’s Phantom, and Brockbank has chosen the ideal performers to make this an extraordinary band.

PHANTOM MKV has just brought out a monstrous album where the spectres of Ronnie James Dio and Jon Lord come to dance in the burning flames of the inflammatory guitars of the Australian Blackmore

SOUL SECRET sign to PRIDE & JOY MUSIC; new album „Babel“ to be released July 28th, 2017!

Pride & Joy Music is delighted to announce the signing of Italian Progressive Metal band SOUL SECRET for the release of their fourth album “Babel” which will be released on July 28th, 2017. Songs from this record will premiere live in Germany at the band’s opening performance for this year’s NIGHT OF THE PROG FESTIVAL at the Loreley on July 14th, opening for none other than MIKE PORTNOY.

      

Soul Secret are an Italian progressive metal band based in Naples. After a long time playing together, they hit the market in 2008 with their debut album „Flowing Portraits“, published by ProgRock Records and with Mark Basile (DGM) as guest singer on the whole album. This album was highly praised by the critics and let them play on stage together with bands like Pendragon, Vanden Plas and Subsignal. After three years the band published „Closer To Daylight“ under Galileo Records, a heavier album featuring Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie Band) on „River’s Edge“ and Arno Menses on the acclaimed 16+ minutes suite „Aftermath“. After playing together again with Subsignal and Vanden Plas, the band decided to change the singer and to start working on a new album. While writing it, they played together with Haken and Neal Morse Band. Their third release, called „4“, was their first concept album and released on April 10th 2015 (October 4th in USA) by GoldenCore Records and distributed by Zyx Music.

Their new album, titled „BABEL“, will be released by Pride & Joy Music on July 28th 2017 and will be previewed at Night Of The Prog, opening Mike Portnoy’s show. BABEL is a concept album, covering topics like religion and love and ranging from classic progressive rock to more modern progressive metal, with influences from djent, electronic and latin music. The artwork was completely designed by Thomas Ewerhard and the mix handled by Alex Argento (Virgil Donati, Marco Sfogli)

Line-up: Claudio Casaburi (Bass), Luca Di Gennaro (Keyboards), Lino Di Pietrantonio (Vocals), Antonio Mocerino (Drums), Antonio Vittozzi (Guitars)

BADGE sign to PRIDE & JOY MUSIC; new album „If It Hurts It Must Be Good“ to be released July 28th, 2017!

Pride & Joy Music is delighted to announce the signing of Swedish Hard Blues Rock band BADGE for the release of their third album “If It Hurts It Must Be Good”! The release was set to July 28th, 2017!

       

BADGE was put together by guitarist/singer Matti Norlin and drummer Fredrik Haake in 2002. Matti´s love for Pre War Blues and both their ambition to create new and exciting music is the drive. 

Since then BADGE has released two albums „Kill Another Fuzz“ in 2010 and „If I Could Love I’d Love This“ in 2013.  Their new album“ If It Hurts It Must Be Good“ will be available via Pride & Joy Music from July 28th, 2017.

With focus on energy, new paths and groove, but always to serve the song, BADGE has been breaking new ground ever since. Even though they started out with the old Blues in mind, they never thought about themselves as a Blues band. Rather a band that makes it’s own mark with many influences. 

In 2013 BADGE was picked to represent Sweden in the European Blues Challenge. In 2014 Matti Norlin and Fredrik Haake got a composer-scholarship from SKAP (Swedish Society of song-writers) for the music of BADGE, and the video for the track “If I Could Love This” reached over 135.000 views on YouTube.

With the new album „If It Hurts It Must Be Good„, they have really come a long way as far as songwriting and getting a unique sound on print! The first advance single from the album, „Break Down“, was picked by Swedish national radio as one of the top 30 songs of Rock in 2015!

*Matti Norlin has released four solo albums: Pre War Blues (1995), Kitchen Sink Blues (1998), Sliding Out (2002) and  LIVE – Blues Three Floors Up (2010). Matti has established himself as a great blues artist and is one of the most perceptive interpreters of early Scandinavian „Pre War Blues“. He has also appeared on records with Sam Mitchell (ex-Rod Stewart’s band), Nicolai Dunger and Tony & The Bitters (interpretations of the Swedish death metal band Dismember).

*Fredrik Haake has previously played with New York band God is my co-pilot as he made several tours with, both in Europe and the U.S. Fredrik was involved in two of the band’s CDs. He also starred in his New York period in Jim Sclavunos (from Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds) new band The Vanity Set and recorded an album with Roger Manning. Fredrik has also been featured in Sideburn, Moa and Swedish-American heavy metal band Meldrum who toured with: Motorhead, Zakk Wylde Black Label Society, Sepultura, Danzig, and Nashville Pussy. 

*Lennart „Z“ Zethzon is featured in Swedish Classic rock band „Lugnet“ who released their debut last year. He also appears on two albums with Clifftones. In -98 Lennart put down the bass for Leda Battisti’s self title release, featuring Grammy Award winner Ottmar Liebert.

LICHTGESTALT veröffentlichen neues Video zu „So kalt dein Lächeln“; neues Album „Tempus Fugit“ erscheint am 26.05.2017!

Die PR für das neue LICHTGESTALT-Album „Tempus Fugit“ (EVT: 26.05. über Pride & Joy Music/Edel)  befindet sich in vollem Gange. Gestern veröffentlichte die NDH-/Metal-Band aus NRW ihren Videoclip zum Song „So kalt dein Lächeln“, welchen ihr bei Youtube unter folgendem Link finden könnt:

https://youtu.be/7_2RTZfEAf8

Wir nehmen gerne weitere Bemusterungsanfragen und Interviewwünsche für die Band entgegen und möchten noch einmal auf das Release-Konzert mit Schattenmann & Schlagwetter am 24.06.2017 in Münster im Sputnik hinweisen!

 

Pressetext:

Als LICHTGESTALT sich Ende 2013 gründeten, verdeutlichte sich schnell, dass der Vierer aus dem Ruhrgebiet/Münsterland  in der Szene unaufhaltsam durchstarten wird. Nach nur einigen Monaten gemeinsamen Probens stand bereits das beeindruckende Songmaterial für die Debüt-EP „Lichtgestalt“, welche die Band schon im Jahr 2014 in Eigenregie erfolgreich veröffentlichte und zugleich in die MRC30 Clubcharts hievte.

       lichtgestalt2-cover-web.JPG

Das folgende Album „Motorenherz“ erschien im April 2015 bei Danse Macabre und wurde von der Fachpresse allseits gefeiert und geadelt; so schrieb  u.a. powermetal.de, „dass (der Song „Tiefenrausch“) grandios zu Gehör stellt, warum diese Band und keine andere ein Anrecht auf die Krone der deutschen harten Musik hat…“, während das Magazin Orkus dem Vierer gar bescheinigt, gleich einen neuen Stil erfunden zu haben: „…Theatralisch, abgefahren, anders….Lichtgestalt kreieren mit ihrem Debütalbum direkt ein neues Genre: den „Neuen Harten Steam“….

lichtgestalt3-pic-web.JPG

Dass der harmonische Vierer um den charismatischen Frontmann Thomas C. Hertz ebenso in der Lage ist, die Energie aus dem Studio auf die Bühnen zu transportieren, stellt die Band seit Mai 2015 eindrucksvoll und regelmäßig auch live unter Beweis. Mit niemand geringerem als der NDH-Ikone Stahlmann absolvierten LICHTGESTALT 2015 gleich zwei erfolgreiche Tourneen.

Im Anschluss an die Konzerte begann Gitarrist und Songwriter Der Heizzer gemeinsam mit Sänger und Texter Thomas C. Hertz mit dem Songwriting für das Zweitwerk „Temous Fugit“, das Ende Mai 2017 nach einem Wechsel der Plattenfirma bei Pride & Joy Music im Vertrieb von Edel erscheinen wird. In der Zwischenzeit gastierte die Formation, die weiterhin von Lippmann am Bass und Brukke am Schlagzeug vorangetrieben wird, 2016 u.a. beim Gothic Castle Festival auf Burg Satzvey und absolvierte diverse Club-Gigs, bevor dann zum Album-VÖ die Liveaktivitäten noch weiter ausgebaut wurden, u.a. in Form einer 14-tätigen Europatour im Februar 2017 gemeinsam mit den Metallern Almanac und Gloryful.

Die nächsten Live-Termine:

27.05.2017 Gothic Meets Rock Festival, Gut Haarbecke, Kierspe

24.06.2017 Münster, Sputnik (Lichtgestalt, Schattenmann & Schlagwetter – Record Release Party)

PR start for STARSICK SYSTEM; lyric video for “Bulletproof” available!

STARSICK SYSTEM is a new sensation in modern hard rock featuring vocalist and guitarist Marco Sandron (Pathosray, Eden’s Curse, Fairyland, etc), bassist Valeria Battain and lead guitarist David Donati (both known in Syrayde) plus producer, songwriter and drummer Ivan Moni Bidin (Pathosray, Ashent, Garden Wall, Syrayde, etc) in the line-up.

      

Today, the lyric video for the first instant grat/ single “Bulletproof” will be released. Check out the video on youtube at this link:

https://youtu.be/YqBOKSYeXwY

Bassist Valeria Battain comments on the track: “Bulletproof is song of “rebellion“ but with an ironic tone. It will take on a personal meaning to everyone who hears it, but the message is the same: stand up for what you believe in, no matter what other people say, face your enemies, be proud of you and take back yourself respect against bullies, self-centered and arrogant ones. We chose this song as first single cause the mood and the melodies are the perfect evolution of our original sound. It’s a perfect match of heavy riffing and catchy refrains that is what distinguishes us mostly!”

The album “Lies, Hope & Other Stories” will hit the shelves on June 23rd, 2017 via Pride & Joy Music. Next to 10 original songs, the record also features an outstanding cover of the Chris Cornell song “You Know My Name” (James Bond 007 – Casino Royale soundtrack).

Line-up: Marco Sandron – vocals, guitars; David Donati – guitars; Ivan Moni Bidin – drums, Valeria Battain – bass

Track list: 1. Nebolus, 2. I Am The Hurricane, 3. Bulletproof, 4. Sinner, 5. The Promise, 6. Scars, 7. Everything And More, 8. Come One, Come All, 9. Perfect Lie, 10. Hope, 11. You Know My Name (Chris Cornell 007 soundtrack cover)

Pre-order the album here: http://hyperurl.co/StarsickHopesLies
