THEIR HIGHEST CHARTING DEBUT IN THEIR 35 YEAR HISTORY

“We have always known from the way our passionate fans treat us that we are number one with them,” said the band. “We have always enjoyed that mutual love fest. And now, to have our fans lift us to #1 on the Billboard Music Video Chart is by far the greatest honor that they can bestow upon our band. We are grateful for this testimony of dedication. This perfectly illustrates that ‘fan’ is short for fanatic, and this is absolutely true when it comes to KIX fans. We are most certainly humbled beyond words!”

THE TWO-DISC DVD/CD WAS RELEASED OCTOBER 21, 2016 AND FEATURES THE MAKING OF ROCK YOUR FACE OFF – KIX’S FIRST NEW MUSIC IN 20 YEARS, INTERVIEWS WITH THE BAND AS WELL AS NOTABLE ROCK ARTISTS AND KEY ROCK MUSIC INDUSTRY FIGURES

PRIDE OF LIONS – New Studio Album “Fearless” Releases On January 27th, 2017, via Frontiers Music SRL

Posted in classic rock, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on November 2, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated new studio album from PRIDE OF LIONS, FEARLESS, on January 27, 2017.

When Frontiers released Pride Of Lions’ groundbreaking first album in 2003, many people asked, “Is this one of those project bands that do one or two albums and then disappear – or a real band with staying power?”

Now, in the year 2017 the answer to that question will be very clear as the band release their FIFTH studio album, FEARLESS! Additionally, their best-selling “Live In Belgium” album and video proves to the world that Jim Peterik and Toby Hitchcock and the powerful Pride Of Lions band is not just a studio concoction, but a live force to be reckoned with, headlining shows in America and Europe.

“We are always trying to top ourselves,” states singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Jim Peterik. “This time I went back and listened closely to all the previous albums to hear the strongest assets of each record: what was working and what could be improved. I went into writing the FEARLESS material keeping that in mind. I feel it sticks closer to the template we set with our first release, yet goes to new places musically as well like using a Kansas style fiddle played by Andrew Ohlrich – on the video/single “All I See is You”.”

pride-of-lions-fearless-promo-cover-pic-2016-33ilmfso9933

The songs and performances on FEARLESS are…well… truly fearless. The title track blazes from the speakers gaining steam with every chorus. “Take the highest ground – stand and fight- you gotta be harder – you gotta be tougher – you gotta be – fearless!” This could be the new battle cry for Rocky Balboa or any common man needing to make a difference in the world.

“When I got together with Jim in Chicago to record, things just caught fire,” enthuses Toby. “I sang 12 vocals in two days! That’s how inspired I was with the new material.”

“Toby hit new heights on this one,” raves Jim. “I was sitting behind the recording console with Larry Millas just one big goose bump as Toby glided from hard rockers like “Rising Up”, classic melodic rock like “All I See Is You” to a heartfelt ode to timeless love – “Everlasting Love.”

Future classics include “The Tell”, where the main character is giving off signals she may not even realize to the mesmerizing magic of “Silent Music” (“I can’t help it if I talk funny – I can’t express the way I feel in spoken words – hold on”) to the mysterious “Freedom of the Night”. That last one was written with former Jimi Jamison keyboardist Hal Butler and the lyric, chord changes and melody seem to channel what Jimi might now be singing if his life had not been tragically cut short.

“The last track is one of my faves,” states Toby Hitchcock. “I think we all can relate to the often painful process of figuring out just who we are and how we fit on this planet. “Unmasking the Mystery” is not something that happens all at once – it happens over time and on our last day we still won’t have all the answers.”

The album will be supported by live dates – in the States and abroad with the first show on January 28th as a part of Jim Peterik’s World Stage at Wentz Hall in Naperville, Illinois.

In early 2017, expect the premiere of the music video for “All I See Is You” directed by Greg Bizzarro. Greg has directed every POL video thus far, as well as the popular “Cold Blooded” video by Peterik / Scherer which starred Leann Marie of “I Can’t Hold Back” video fame.

So crank it up! The louder the better, after all “You gotta be fearless!!!”

About Ayin Aleph:

Hollywood based, but European raised, Ayin is at the confluence of classical music and heavy rock, combining Baroque influences (massive choirs) and romanticism (rhythmic and lead acoustic piano). With an extravagant personality, massive guitars, sophisticated bass lines, powerful back beats, philharmonic accompaniment and magnificent compositions, a new dawn of rock has broken.

Ayin is a consummate performer; classically trained and renowned concert pianist; operatic vocalist; provocateur, poet, model and fashion designer Ayin Aleph is a ready-made brand. Combining Baroque style and composition with the driving force of modern band format, Ayin has created her own genre of music that is passionate and inspired.

Thought provoking lyrics, infectious melodies, blazing rhythmic passages and high fashion coalesce in Ayin Aleph, rendering any preconceived notions of what makes a Pop, Rock or Metal star, pass. Ayin speaks directly to the senses with timeless, contemporary and cutting edge sensibilities.

Ayin has 2 albums and 6 music videos to her credit, and has performed extensively in Russia, the United States and throughout Europe.

BATTLECROSS And WOVENWAR Have Begun North American Tour With SOILWORK, UNEARTH And DARKNESS DIVIDED

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 17, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Metal Blade lablemates BATTLECROSS and WOVENWAR will kick off their North American Fury Tour tonight supporting Soilwork and Unearth. The trek will coil its way through over two dozen venues, coming to a close on November 16th in Toronto, Ontario. Additional support will be provided by Darkness Divided.

Following the journey, BATTLECROSS will close 2016 with a three-week headlining run: the third installment of the Winter Warriors Tour. This year, support will be provided by Metal Blade labelmates Allegaeon and Necromancing The Stone. In conjunction with the Veterans Ticket Foundation, the Winter Warriors Tour will once again offer free admission to members of the US Armed Forces and the band will donate a portion of their proceeds to local veterans’ organizations in each city.

Battlecross - Rise To Power - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #0528MOBC

Veterans are invited to register for free tickets at vettix.org. BATTLECROSS will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise To Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013’s War Of Will entered the charts at #130). To preview and purchase Rise To Power, visit: metalblade.com/battlecross.

On October 21st, WOVENWAR will release their sophomore album, Honor Is Dead. More aggressive and fluid than its self-titled predecessor, Honor Is Dead was written with contributions from all members, while the music for Wovenwar was mostly written before vocalist Shane Blay joined the band. The results speak for themselves, capturing a group that sounds truly unified, and hungry.

Expanding upon the ruthlessly catchy melodies and hooks of their debut and driven by darker lyrical themes, Honor Is Dead makes for a listening experience with true depth, and a broad emotional range. To hear latest single, “World On Fire,” visit AltPress.com at THIS LOCATION where a drum play through for the track can be viewed, alongside an exclusive interview with drummer Jordan Mancino. For preorder info and to check out a concept video (by the band’s own Nick Hipa) for “Censorship” visit: metalblade.com/wovenwar.
