SOUNDBYTES

 

After two albums (“Hungryheart” and “One Ticket To Paradise”) which have made Hungryheart a very popular and respected band within the AOR / Melodic Rock world, the band is set to release its third album, “Dirty Italian Job”June 29.

 

12 songs of pure melodic hard rock characterized by the unmistakable sound of Hungryheart. Throughout the last 5 years, the band and each of its members have had the opportunity to share the stage, play and collaborate with names such as House of Lords, Mitch Malloy, Bobby Kymball, Vinny Appice, Issa, Kelly Keeling and many others. The experience earned led to a peak of artistry and song writing perfectly expressed in this new album where hard rock roots melt naturally into a great diversity of musical influences. Typical AOR tunes such as “Back To The Real Life” and the single “Shoreline” stand together with classic rock songs such as “Rock Steady” and “There Is A Reason For Everything” while “Devil’s Got My Number”, “Time For The Letting Go” and “Second Hand Love” show the bluesy side of the band.

 

This last song and ballad “Nothing But You” is based on a vocal duet between Hungryheart’s founding members Josh Zighetti and Mario Percudani.The Lyrics thrive with positive messages concerning life, dreams and hope. The only cover is “Bad Love” by Eric Clapton, rearranged and adapted to Hungryheart sound. The album, produced by guitarist Mario Percudani (Mitch Malloy, Ted Poley, Axe, Lionville), features Josh Zighetti on vocals, Paolo Botteschi on drums and Stefano “Skool” Scola on bass. It has been recorded and mixed at Tanzan Music Studio (Italy) by Mario Percudani & Daniele Mandelli and mastered by senior engineer Brad Vance (Foreigner, Mr.Big, Ritchie Blackmore) at Red Mastering Studio (California, USA).

 

BIOGRAPHY:

The first steps were taken in the 90’s but the breakthrough arrived in 2008 when Josh Zighetti, Mario Percudani, Lele Meola and Emilio Sobacchi (the original Hungryheart line up) released their first self titled album. The album was voted by the Canadian “Sleazy Roxx Magazine” as one of the Top Ten Hard Rock albums of that year. Two years passed and in 2010 a new lineup (Josh Zighetti on vocals, Mario Percudani on guitar & vocals, Stefano Lozzi on bass and Paolo Botteschi on drums) released the much acclaimed ‘One Ticket To Paradise’ where the band expanded the meaning of hard rock through a deeper and stronger songwriting. Hungryheart, having had two successful albums, two European tours and countless shows in Italy, keep on evolving their style and spreading their energy on stage, sharing it with the likes of Mitch Malloy, Quireboys, Michael Bormann and House Of Lords. “Dirty Italian Job”, their third studio album, comes after 5 years of hard work, study and radical innovations and move up the unmistakable sound of the band a step further!

EMPIRES OF EDEN – Architect Of Hope

EMPIRES OF EDEN – Architect Of Hope

Price: $15.00

MelodicRock Records is going full metal for this special release from Aussie melodic metal project EMPIRES OF EDEN.

Their new album Architect Of Hope is a raging slab of relentless riffing and high-octane metal, all delivered with style, class and plenty of melodies.

Features Deluxe 18 Page Booklet! OUT NOW!!
This album OUT NOW available via MelodicRock.com and MelodicRock Direct.
ORDER NOW
From Avantasia to Ayreon and beyond, collaborations in metal typically prove to be more than the sum of their parts. This has been never been more true than in the case of Empires of Eden, a melodic metal project originating from Sydney, Australia and spanning the entire globe in its unprecedented scope.
Masterminded by former Dungeon and current Death Dealer guitarist/Producer Stu Marshall, Empires of Eden is characterized by a massive power metal sound, 30-piece orchestral score, and guest performances from some of the most celebrated musicians in the industry. Proving that neither oceans nor national boundaries are capable of stopping this explosive onslaught, Marshall has enlisted the participation of artists from all corners of the globe to assemble an army of veteran talent like no other.
2015 will bring us to “Architect of Hope”. The fourth album delivering nine head pounding tracks and featuring heavy Metal Legend, Ralf Scheepers (Primal fear).
Raising the standard yet again, Marshall has enlisted world wrecking stars like Rick Altzi (Masterplan), Mike Dimeo (Riot / Masterplan) and Jeff Martin (Racer X) just to highlight four of the amazing nine deep cast.
The 2012 release “Channelling the Infinite” raised the bar across the board in several categories of metal: symphonic, collaborative, progressive, melodic and generally ground breaking. The album received consistent scoring 9/10 or higher in reviews worldwide. In addition to Marshall’s uncompromising compositional skills and technical guitar wizardry, the album was reinforced by vocalists who have earned their place in history, such as UDO Dirkschneider (Accept), Mike Dimeo (Riot / Masterplan) and Steve Grimmett (Grim Reaper / Lionsheart) to name just a few.
Compared to other collaborative projects of this kind, Empires of Eden is unique in the extent to which the guest vocalists are involved with the writing of the songs themselves. According to Marshall, although he tailors the instrumental backing to each singer’s individual style and preferred range, “They are completely at liberty to write any lyrics they want, and they pen the vocal melodies themselves, too.” Having so much artistic freedom not only increases the vocalists’ enthusiasm for the project, but also enables them to deliver their best possible performances, unbounded by the usual constraints of the ‘guest musician’ format.
With lush, picturesque orchestral arrangements, bone-crushing riffs, kaleidoscopic soloing and spectacular vocal performances, Empires of Eden has developed a trademark sound that redefines the concept of epic.

TERRA NOVA – Reinvent Yourself

TERRA NOVA – Reinvent Yourself

Price: $15.00

Reinvent Yourself is the 6th studio album of the Dutch band Terra Nova. In 1996 their highly acclaimed debut album Livin´ It Up was launched. After that the albums Break Away in 1997 and Make My Day in 1999 followed.

After the first three albums the band had to split up due to a conflict with their Dutch record company.
Fred, Ron and Gesuino continued under the name Aquila and released two albums: Say Yeah 2001 and Man With A Mission 2004.
In 2004 the band was free from their contractual obligations towards their Dutch record company and signed a record deal with Frontiers Records.
The first album after their break was Escape released 2005 followed by the album Come Alive 2010.
In 2007 Fred, Ron, Gesuino and two woman: Esther Brouns and Anita Craenmehr got together as Two Of A Kind and released a superb album Two Of A Kind.
End of 2013 the Reinvent Yourself album was written by Fred and recorded and mixed during 2014. During 2014 the band and their record label Frontiers had different views on which direction the album should take. This resulted in Terra Nova moving on with their album without a record company.
In 2015 Terra Nova was signed by Melodic Rock Records for the world and King Records for Japan.
The album Reinvent Yourself is about trying to improve yourself over and over again. It´s a process of finding a better version of yourself. Trying to take it to the highest level.

TONK – Ruby Voodoo

TONK – Ruby Voodoo

Price: $15.00

TONK “Ruby Voodoo” is OUT NOW!

TONK have recorded a fantastic old-school hard rock record with famed producer Nick Didia (Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, RATM, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen).
It sounds authentic, because it is authentic!
Tonk hail from Canberra Australia. And like the Aussie legends before them, this hard-rock quintet just want to have a great time delivering their own brand of hard gritty tunes…
Screaming vocals, ripping guitars and bombastic drums leave nothing left for the faint hearted.
You’ll love the experience of course, whether it’s your first time or you are a longstanding Tonkist,
wherever you come across them, when Jinks, Steve, Ben, Matt and Mikey get in a room together, hard rockin’ sparks fly!!!
The music of Tonk may be of the classic ilk, but its unapologetic affection for old-school rock makes it infectious.
Tonk’s debut album, Sister Switchblade was released on November 2007 to worldwide critical acclaim,
scoring the band world-wide radio airplay, a distribution deal with Modern Music/SONY BMG, a US licensing deal (Undercover Tracks), TV syncs and countless articles in local and international online and print media.
In September 2012, Tonk were invited and accepted to be included on a French Aussie compilation CD ‘Rock Des Antipodes’ by French label Bad Reputation, coming in at track 5, alongside the likes of Baby Animals, Jet, The Vines, Airbourne, Masters Apprentices, Dallas Crane and others.
Tonk were also involved in an international furore when it was found that FOX networks ‘How I Met Your Mother’ TV series had recorded and used their song ‘Golden Girl’ without permission on two separate occasions prompting the band to pursue remuneration and correction of the aired broadcast sheets.
Tonk have toured and played alongside: Airbourne, Helmet (USA), The Screaming Jets, Jimmy Barnes, The Casanovas, Shihad, The Poor, Grinspoon, The Angels, Gyroscope, MM9, Karnivool, COG, Sunset Riot, Dead Letter Circus, The Butterfly Effect, Mammal, Full Scale, Hell City Glamours, The Red Coats, INK, King of the North and Karnivool to name drop a few.
In October 2014 we headed up to Studios 301 in Byron Bay to record our 2nd album “Ruby Voodoo” with the honourable Nick Didia (Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, RATM, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, etc).
Much like our rock forefathers before us, we tracked the album live using little digital trickery (no click track or auto-tune, etc) adding vocals and guitar noodlery afterwards.

The pair had this to say about the debut album and their new deal: “We are pleased to announce the signing of a contract with MRR (MelodicRock Records) for the release of our first album called The End Of The Road. The album is a mixture of all of the influences that we had through all these years of listening to music.

Track listing (WITH AUDIO SAMPLES):
· 12. Life (Instrumental Bonus Track)
Full Track:

Dario was born in Palermo, Italy in 1979. He learned to play guitar at the age of 6 years studying classical guitar and music theory at “Vincenzo Bellini” conservatory in Palermo. During the high school years he formed, with his brothers Max and Alex, his first hard rock band called Dragon’s Breath. In 1997, Dario joined some great bands as Cherry BombzSqueezy Boyz and Empty Roads.

 

At the same time, he began to study singing, improving his skills thanks to some stages with Elizabeth Sabine [singing-master of Axl Rose, Dave Mustaine, Ron Keel etc.]. In 1998 he joined the well-known power metal band Thy Majestie as lead singer, adapting his voice to the heavier sound of the band.
The original and clear voice of Dario gave to the music of Thy Majestie a melodic feeling melted with the power of heavy metal.  After two albums ["The Lasting Power" and "Hastings 1066"] and one EP ["Echoes of War"], Dario left the band in October 2003 in order to dedicate all his energies to his new project Platens where he played all the instruments.
This new musical adventure saw the light of day on Frontiers Records whose president and A&R director, Serafino Perugino, heard the first demos and was enthusiast with what he heard. The debut album “Between Two Horizons” was released in 2004 and featured a driving melodic hard rock approach very close to the sound of such bands as Fair Warning, Terra Nova and Grand Illusion.
Between 2005 and 2014 Dario has been very busy in his activity as producer, composer and songwriter. He worked with many Italian talented singers and musicians like Katia Miceli (X-Factor 2009 and winner of “Cantagiro 2008”, one of the most important Italian festival), Gianni Bella, Giuseppe Finocchiaro, Lorencè Brahem, Pio Fanale, Riccardo Favara and he took part to some international musical projects (Charming Grace, Caravellus).
At the same time he started the work on his new band called Violet Sun with his brother Alex on drum and the talented singer Alessandra Amata. Together they recorded and produced the debut album “Loneliness In Supremacy “was released in 2010 on Melodic Rock Records.
