As reported on the KROKUSonline Facebook:

OUR UPCOMING USA TOUR WITHOUT FERNANDO

Don’t worry – Fernando (Von Arb) is still an integral part of our band and will perform with KROKUS in the future as well, with the exception of concerts that take place in far away continents (from Switzerland). Such long distance travel is not conducive to his health. So, don’t worry – the band has absolutely no internal personal problems and we enjoyed the best year ever in KROKUS history. This is simply a precaution for Fernando’s sake. We do not want to go overboard and risk anything that can have an impact on the longevity of the band to perform for years to come!

Taking over production and full-time keys for the album will be Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline) known for his melodically charged keys and excellent productions.

The album has been written by Floridia and the band will start pre-production early in 2015, with plans for release by the end of the year.

Soundgarden - Echo Of Miles - Scattered Tracks Across The Path - promo CD package pic - 2014

Includes Seven Unreleased Tracks

Recognized as one of the world’s most influential bands in Rock music, Grammy-winning multi-platinum selling band Soundgarden started a musical transformation that inspired a generation in its record-breaking career, leaving an indelible mark by helping redefine Alternative and Hard Rock. Hard on the heels of the 20th anniversary deluxe re-release of its chart-topping, five-times-platinum 1994 album, Superunknown, earlier this year, Soundgarden’s latest release is a 3-CD rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path.

Among the seven unreleased tracks is a brand-new recording, “Storm,” recorded in May with producer Jack Endino in Seattle. The new collection was curated and hand-selected by guitarist Kim Thayil. Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path is the first time an official Soundgarden release has included more than 26 years of rarities that have appeared as B-sides, album bonus tracks, EPs, soundtracks, compilations and live recordings, a must for any fan of the band. The package features three separate thematic discs in a clear plastic slipcase with three separate mini-jackets, each sporting its own unique art, a booklet and inserts, allowing fans to mix and match, personalizing their own album graphic layout.

J.RAD “SICK FANTASY” – New Album Of Hard Rock Splendor Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Metal, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on November 3, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

J.Rad - Sick Fantasy - promo album cover pic - 2014

J.RAD – This seasoned and accomplished Hard Rock band originates from North Babylon, New York and what a hell of a band! The Hard Rock identity of sound that J.RAD plays I’ve found to be contagious and it’s my Metal duty to spread the Metal word! The new J.RAD studio album, Sick Fantasy, has elevated my love for guitar driven, heavy hittin’ and memorable American made Hard Rock! This album is so good that it’s one of the best Hard Rock albums I’ve listened to this year; with no pretentious bullshit to be heard, just pure 100% quality songs! Hard Rock hallelujah!

Lead vocalist Gino Rudolph has a tremendous voice, in my Metal opinion; he sings each song with such powerful conviction and emotion that I find it irresistible to applaud. In my Metal opinion, Gino can stand aside the best of vocalists in the Modern Hard Rock scene today, seriously, I find him that talented and fun to listen to. Drummer Mo Sticky is an obvious talent and flawlessly lays down the beats that send each song into their respective Hard Rock grandeur.

J.RAD - band logo - Sick Fantasy album - 2014 - #113JR

Guitarist Jared Cannata is so damn impressive with his fret work, this guy can freaking shred! Jared lays down so many crunchy,  fun-tastic riffs and solos that It’s easy to lose count of them all. My ears have informed me loud and clear that Jared Cannata can sonically dazzle with his axe. Whoa! With this level of musical talent impactful songs, Sick Fantasy is a non-stop ride through Hard Rock la-la land and I couldn’t be more honest than that judgement! This may all sound too good to be true, only it’s TRUE. Stone would never pump up an album unless it’s psyche-out city and this is exactly that, man!

The bassist keeping the rhythmic thunder rolling on this Sick Fantasy album you’ll hear is Russ Zutto and he’s since left the band on amicable terms. Therefore, it looks like J.RAD is searching for a new bassist to join their powerful band. The softest number on this album is Push and even this song Rocks. Overall, there is a sinister and bleak theme to this album lyrically; yet the up-tempo rhythm and melodies of the songs are what elevates my mood!

This album is for fans of SevendustAdelitas Way, CAVO, ColdPop Evil to FFDP and all in-between! Hard Rock and Metal fans alike can surely find something sonically cool about J.RAD. Man, this Sick Fantasy album has me elated and that’s what great albums and bands are supposed to do for me… or anyone else for that matter. Metal be thy name – Stone.

Sick Fantasy was released worldwide and is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and pretty much every other download/streaming service!

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sick-fantasy/id926322449?uo=4

Over the years J.Rad has had the opportunity to share the stage with many prominent artists such as: Scott Stapp (Creed), Saliva, Filter, Gemini Syndrome, Living Colour, Twisted Sister, Vince Neil (Motlley Crue), Bret Michaels (Poison), Mountain, Eye Empire, Saving Abel, Zach Myers (Shinedown), Styper, LA Guns, Blue Oyster Cult, Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Winter and many others.
